Our take
The trend of equitizing DIPs at indeterminate valuations and discounts to plan value is highly troubling when it comes at the expense of fulcrum claims. This is another trend in the expanding toolkit of Exclusive Opportunism. Academics are taking notice, and we look forward to read Prof. Robert Miller’s article on Loan-to-Own 2.0 coming out soon.

As we noted at our recent conference:

What aspect is most troubling? indeterminate valuations, discounts or amount of fees?
Should judges take a more active role in monitoring this type of behavior?

What to expect in the next default cycle

We asked Contributors Bradford Sandler and Sidney Levinson to weigh in on what we should expect in the next default cycle.

Professor Edward Altman recently noted in a paper published with the Creditor Rights Coalition that the Benign Credit Cycle is over. He sees a reversion to the mean in terms of defaults and recoveries in 2023. But he also sees many risks on the horizon making a Stress or even in a “hard-landing†scenario a possibility (with 8-10% default rates). Put your prediction caps on. What do you see and expect? Where do you expect restructuring activity to increase? Are we in for more bankruptcies? Or, more (yawn yawn) extend and pretend? Will RSAs rule the day? Or, will we see more traditional in-court restructurings? What will this new environment look like?

Read on.
