In just a few years the leveraged buyout market transformed itself from a relative backwater to one of the most dynamic areas of the world's capital markets. But the collapse of the US sub-prime market and the ensuing credit squeeze brought the boom in the US and Europe to an abrupt end, and with it, the widely anticipated Asian LBO boom was nipped in the bud. These are trying times for the big LBO players. Private equity firms, still flush with cash, are running out of suitable assets to buy in more traditional markets and will need to act soon to maintain their investors' confidence. The banks, meanwhile, having ...
The assets of the acquired company are used as collateral for the borrowed capital, sometimes with assets of the acquiring company. Typically, leveraged buyout uses a combination of various debt instruments from bank and debt capital markets. The bonds or other paper issued for leveraged buyouts are commonly considered not to be investment grade because of the significant risks involved. Companies of all sizes and industries have been the target of leveraged buyout transactions, although because of the importance of debt and the ability of the acquired firm to make regular loan payments after the completion of a leveraged ...

leveraged buyout: Definition from Answers.com
The acquisition of another company using a significant amount of borrowed money (bonds or loans) to meet the cost of acquisition. Often, the assets of the company being acquired are used as collateral for the loans in addition to the assets of the acquiring company. The purpose of leveraged buyouts is to allow companies to make large acquisitions without having to commit a lot of capital. Investopedia Says : In an LBO, there is usually a ratio of 90% debt to 10% equity. Because of this high debt/equity ratio, the bonds usually are not investment grade and are referred to as junk bonds. Leveraged buyouts have had a notorious ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
LBO debt: bracing for widespread defaults
Between 2002 and 2007, the amount of debt used to finance leveraged buyouts (LBOs) skyrocketed year on year. A combination of decreasing interest rates and relaxed lending standards helped set the stage for mega buyouts. By 2006, leveraged loan issuance had reached $612bn, according to Fitch Ratings. During this time, the size of individual LBOs increased dramatically. 2002 was marked by the $7.5bn buyout of Dex Media by an investment group which included the Caryle Group. But in October 2007, the bar was raised to unprecedented heights with the $45bn buyout of TXU Energy by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, Texas Pacific Group and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How would a Libor Loan typically be used, and repaid, in a ...

As P&I are paid down until an adjustment period, probably quarterly. When the rate adjusts, a new schedule with payments will be created based on the remaining loan amount and number of years/months. This will then be the new payment until the reset. This can be volatile as the interest in concentrated in the earlier part of the loan. If I had to guess, this type of transaction is rolled into a portfolio and then securitized. In the US this is done with the SBA 7A program for ...
