10 weeks into the COVID-19 crisis: What we’re seeing in European deal financings and valuations

Lincoln International’s European Debt Advisory and Valuations Groups led an exclusive “ZoomCast” interactive webinar with a panel of Lincoln’s capital markets experts discussing the fast-changing financing markets amidst COVID-19.

The panel explored selected critical questions in the market:

  • What have we observed in private European credit fund valuations during Q1 2020? What do we anticipate for Q2 2020 valuations and beyond?
  • Is European governments financial response supportive of sponsored borrowers? Are there differences across jurisdictions? Can we expect any changes?
  • For companies that need to be financed in today’s market, can deals get done? Who is active and are revised market terms starting to emerge? Can deals get done?
  • As borrowers and lenders prepare for June 30th covenant test and compliance certificate submissions, what will be the key facets, dynamics and strategies surrounding amendments and waiver negotiations?

The presentation contained remarks and market insights from our European Debt Advisory and Valuations Groups followed by an interactive Q&A during which attendees were encouraged to submit questions that were answered live by our panellists.
