Panel: Regional focus - Southern Europe

Replete with dry powder from the past 24 months, direct lenders have routinely stepped in to provide private debt options in Southern Europe. One such example was Advent International’s EUR 430m floating rate note to partially finance its acquisition of Italian ingredients manufacturer, IRCA, but switched to a senior acquisition package provided by CVC Credit Partners as public credit markets turned. This panel will review:

  • What is the deal pipeline in Southern Europe for direct lenders?
  • What are the key issues for issuers and investors in the region?
  • What are the trends in documentation in the region?
  • What are the differences in the direct lending deal pipelines in Italy and Spain?
