Structuring Credit Facilities for Private Equity Funds: Subscription, NAV, and Hybrid Loans
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide finance counsel with the tools to structure credit facilities for private equity funds, including subscription and net asset value (NAV) based facilities and hybrids that combine aspects of both. The panel will contrast the documentation and collateral for subscription vs. NAV loans and review additional issues to address when underwriting and documenting a hybrid transaction.
- Financing lifecycle of a private equity fund
- Subscription facilities
- NAV facilities
- Hybrid facilities
- Types of collateral: UCC perfection
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What is the collateral for subscription facilities, and when are they most useful in the life of the fund?
- When should NAV facilities be created, and how are adjustments made for underlying assets of a fund?
- How should a hybrid facility be structured to address both subscription and NAV underwriting?
- What are the UCC considerations for each type of collateral?
