)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Significant Developments in Acquisition Finance: What You Need to Know Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on February 6, 2015 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.
In March 2013, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency issued updated Leveraged Lending Guidance for the financial institutions. The Guidance could change the way acquisition financings are arranged and under-written. Specifically, the guidance addresses covenant-lite loans and loans to entities with leverage multiples above 6 times their earnings or those which cannot reasonably be re-paid from cash flows.
