Program Materials

This CLE webinar will prepare business and finance counsel in structuring loan transactions in which stock, bonds, mutual funds and other investment vehicles are used as collateral to secure the loan. The program will address how to properly perfect the security interests while complying with Regulations U and X, Rule 144, and UCC Articles 8 and 9.

Description

Using stock, bonds and similar equity interests as collateral presents challenges due to unique planning and documentation issues, including consideration of securities laws and entity statutes.

Counsel must navigate the interplay between UCC Articles 8 and 9, Rule 144 and Margin Regulations (U and X)—and understand the bankruptcy safe harbors and foreclosure issues to protect their clients and issue opinions.

Corporate financing for tender offers, corporate acquisitions, mergers, stock buy backs, and going-private transactions require lenders and borrowers to incorporate knowledge of the regs to structure the loan agreement.

Listen as our panel of finance practitioners provides best practices for advising clients in structuring loan transactions in which securities, bonds and other investment vehicles are used as collateral. The panelists will offer their perspectives and experiences on the potential pitfalls involved in creating and perfecting the security interests while complying with Margin Regulations, Rule 144 and UCC Article 8.
