Debtwire Direct Lending Forum 2023

In-person registration is now closed.

The Savoy, London

18 May

Panel: Regional Focus – France

The appetite for direct lending deals in France can be demonstrated by France-based buyout firm Astorg’s acquisition of drug development company CordenPharma earlier this year, where banks were initially expected to provide financing. Instead, Astorg went with a €1.5 bn club financing from four private providers. This panel will review:

  • What is the deal pipeline in France for direct lenders?
  • What are the key issues for issuers and investors in the region?
  • What are the trends in documentation in France?
  • Will French banks return to the financing market in 2023?
