    Loan Documentation and Security

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    This course provides a full coverage of all of the important aspects of lending. It sets the scene by explaining the banks approach to lending, the roles of the key departments in the bank and the key documents in the process.

    The programme then proceeds to discuss where to focus in analysing the loan and examines the key commercial terms in the loan and security documents from the perspective of both the lender and the borrower. Reference is made to established case law (Spectrum) and to recent cases, such as Stabilus and Urvasco and their relevance to key clauses and aspects.

    Whilst Loan Market Association precedents are widely used as a point of departure for loans throughout Europe, there are a number of key clauses which are left “blank” for negotiation, in particular the various “permitted” baskets which need to be tailored on a case by case basis. Furthermore, syndicated (and club) loans raise additional issues which are not relevant in bilateral loans, such as voting thresholds and transfer restrictions.

    In view of the standardised approach to lending across Europe, the course is presented so that it has a pan-European relevance.

    The Takeover Code Update

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    New rules for profit forecasts and quantified financial benefits statements (formerly merger benefits statements) came into effect on 30 September 2013 following a long consultation. The rules set out different requirements depending on the timing and nature of the forecasts and the requirements for benefits statements have been extended and made more detailed. Standards are also set for analyst, third party and consensus profit forecasts’ which are referred to.

    In addition, on 30 September, rules for the disclosure of material changes in information during offers were updated, and the companies subject to the Code changed, resulting in many AIM companies becoming subject to the Code for the first time. There are also new requirements with regard to pension scheme trustees, which were implemented in May 2013.

    This half day Takeover Code course examines these new rules and also looks at the key changes resulting from the Takeover Code Review and the impact they have had on takeovers since they came into force. The Takeover Code Review has affected the way takeovers are planned and negotiated as well as the disclosures made in documents, and the Takeover Panel is monitoring certain areas closely to ensure the new rules are fully complied with.

    Sale and Purchase Agreements – The Commercial Issues- Negotiating the contentious topics in SPAs

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    A simplistic view of an acquisition is that the actual price paid is paramount but experienced practitioners recognise that price is but one aspect of the deal and that there is the potential for significant value leakage in arriving at the actual price and also from claims arising after completion.

    The “price” paid may seem a simple concept but, in practice, requires an understanding of how this is derived. Most private acquisitions are based on a “cash-free, debt-free basis” with adjustments for working capital or net assets. Buyers typically develop an enterprise value which is then adjusted to derive an equity value by adjusting for cash, debt and working capital all of which needs to be captured in the Sale & Purchase Agreement (“SPA”).

    Negotiating and documenting these items is not as straightforward as one might expect; for example, does “cash” include “trapped cash”, what does debt include, what is wrong with using “average” working capital and how can parties minimise subsequent disputes? Additionally, the choice of the completion mechanism (completion accounts or locked box) creates further opportunity for further value transfer. Even after completion the seller may find further value erosion through claims arising under the warranties and indemnities.

    There is no right or wrong answer to many of these questions and the ultimate position will be dictated by the negotiating strength of the respective buyer and seller. Despite that, a sound grasp of the key commercial and legal issues can minimise value loss for parties.

    This programme focuses on transactions involving the purchase of shares but also covers areas of specific relevance to asset purchases. It provides a step by step template to the basics but also covers the critical legal and commercial aspects in the transaction from the perspective of both buyer and seller. Reference is made to recent or relevant leading cases.
