All rankings are based on data submitted to Debtwire Par. Loans will be classified as Leveraged based on a weighting of senior debt rating (BB+/Ba1 or lower) and current pricing level (Libor+200 or higher). In a case with an unrated borrower, pricing will be the determining factor. If pricing is not applicable to the current market trends, leverage levels may be considered on a deal-by-deal basis.
