Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide counsel in real estate finance with a review of recent enforcement trends regarding non-recourse guaranties and discuss the rise in lender requirements for financial covenants in non-recourse guaranties. The panel will also outline the types of covenants being required and offer strategies for both guarantors and lenders in negotiating financial covenants.
- Overview of non-recourse guaranties
- Net worth and liquidity covenants
- Guaranties of interest rate swap obligations
- Current issues and common pitfalls
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- How will the lender and guarantor each try to characterize assets and liabilities for purposes of the net worth test?
- What assets will the lender want to exclude and what liabilities will it want to include?
- What are typical liquid assets that lenders will consider for the liquidity covenant and what are negotiating points for guarantors with limited liquidity?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
