DLA Piper Current Topics in High Yield Spring 2016

Our suggested topics for Spring 2016 include the following:

  • European Acquisition Finance Debt Report
    We just published our 2016 report with a focus on the state of the market in acquisition finance. We will tailor a short session for your team with key takeaways from our survey of over 300 market participants throughout Europe.
  • The best laid schemes…
    Our restructuring, high yield and debt finance experts will contrast two recent schemes of arrangement in the leveraged finance space — one successful and one not. How best to keep a scheme from often going awry (or, as Burns put it regarding mice and men, "gang aft agley")?
  • Tales from the buy side
    The buyers of high yield bonds have been vocal for years about what they see as increasing complexity and decreasing decision time in the bond marketing process. We’ve been speaking to them under “Chatham House Rules” and have plenty of insight to share.
  • What are issuers getting?
    A look at High Yield 'innovations': those issuer and sponsor friendly features that have grown in the High Yield market. Is the tide turning, or is the flow just taking a new direction? (NB: this would make an excellent extended session with “tales from the buy side.”)
  • First time high yield issuance – what to expect?
    We’re pleased to be presenting on this topic at the upcoming AFME seminar, "European High Yield: A Spanish Perspective” in April. If you can’t be in Madrid in late April, we’ll bring the topic to you.
  • Green bonds
    We helped green bonds to enter the EMEA high yield space. What does it take to be 'green'?

Your place or ours?

We would be happy to host your team for a breakfast or lunch briefing at our offices, or we can come to you in person / virtually. No group is too large or small, as we will tailor our presentation to your needs.
