While returns in the 40% to 50% range portend a 2009 Grinch-free holiday season for most leveraged loan and high yield bond professionals, those dedicated to selling and trading junk bonds are on track to receive the highest bonuses on Wall Street this year, according to a new compensation study. (Leveraged loans sales and trading hasn’t done as well, but they aren’t looking at anything Dickensian either. More on that in a bit.) Everyone on the high yield bond team, from the associate to the head of Americas trading looks poised to receive a bonus 45% to 50% higher than last year, according to the 2009/2010 Global ...
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 ...
Loan Market Heats Up with Four New CLOs
was still growing back all of her hair. Now, the details of four new CLOs have begun circulating, one of which will consist of new loans, a source familiar with the deal said. “This seems to confirm that the hot tub time machine has taken us back to 2006 to 2007,” quipped a New York-based investor. However, even with four new CLOs to talk about, market participants are still skeptical of their implication. “It’s an encouraging sign,” a Boston-based investor said. “However, the equity is not being marketed but being funded by a sponsor or company. With normal assumptions, returns will struggle ... market research, surveys and trends
Q&A: RBC Takes the Holistic Approach
Changes in the world of corporate debt have led banks to take a more holistic approach when working with high yield issuers and even some investor clients. Underwriters like RBC Capital Markets are, for example, offering traditional loan clients on both the buy and sell sides of the market senior secured bonds.

It’s not that we don’t all love a good bank loan. They’re so, you know, secure. (Or they should be.) But evidence is mounting that leveraged loans are also, like, sooooooo 2006. But you don’t have to take my word for it—take the chart’s. You can check it out below. I’d been chatting with John Ong about his new gig as head of debt capital markets at Sunrise Securities —a profile also on —and he’d explained how Sunrise, in starting its new DCM group, was betting the leveraged loan market won’t rebound any time soon. The firm, and they aren’t the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Bondholders get big payout from Chevy Chase Bank sale - Washington ...
Five years ago the Bethesda-based company issued $250 million in bonds secured by the company’s ownership of Chevy Chase Bank. When Capital One’s purchase of the bank was announced early this month, those bonds were reportedly trading for about 58.75 percent of their face value. Bondholders who bought at that price could get a return of more than 80 percent on their investments next year when the company redeems the bonds before their maturity, an action that results in a payout greater than face value. “You don’t see point spreads like this very often,” said Anthony Canale, who authored a Dec. 9 ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Disney `Millionaire', Marsh, First Republic, HSBC, Carlyle in Court News
was found liable for not paying the U.K. creators of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” their share of profits from the quiz show broadcast on Disney’s ABC network.

WASHINGTON — Credit quality declined sharply for loan commitments of $20 million or more held by multiple federally supervised institutions, according to the 32nd annual review of Shared National Credits (SNC).
