    Advanced Private Equity & Leveraged Buy-outs

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    This program is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive view of private equity from the perspective of all the main participants. These include the providers of loan and bond finance, the private equity firms, the various professional advisers and the management team. The focus is largely on development capital (i.e. for firms with debt capacity) but also touches on matters relevant to venture capital.

    The course covers the three key stages of the deal transaction from entry to exit. It provides an insight into the main value drivers in the process and the main areas of risk, the major structural issues that need to be considered and the structure and parameters used to gauge the optimum amount of debt/equity in the capital structure.

    Participants will acquire a thorough understanding of the various types of debt that are available, including both senior and junior loans and the various types of bonds which are being used increasingly by private equity firms and corporates, as well as the key issues for the providers of both loans and bonds.

    The programme covers critical issues from the perspective of the PE firm and an understanding of how their funds are structured as this means they approach transactions from a different perspective to corporates. Finally, the varied roles of management, key issues that arise for them and their interaction with the PE investors are also covered as these aspects are vital to ensure management remain properly incentivised to create value.

    The programme will benefit those involved in private equity whether directly (e.g. investor, manager or lender) or indirectly, typically as a professional advisor. It adopts a pan-European approach to the topic but the presenter is able to discuss issues relevant in the USA and Asia in view of his exposure to those markets if participants require. Reference will be made to current trends and data in the markets across Europe.

    Participants will be provided with numerous case studies to reinforce the various aspects and will also be provided with an LBO model which will be used to structure a transaction.

    Advanced Private Equity & Leveraged Buy-outs Masterclass

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    This program is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive view of private equity from the perspective of all the main participants. These include the providers of loan and bond finance, the private equity firms, the various professional advisers and the management team. The focus is largely on development capital (i.e. for firms with debt capacity) but also touches on matters relevant to venture capital.

    The first, second and third day of the course covers the three key stages of the deal transaction from entry to exit. It provides an insight into the main value drivers in the process and the main areas of risk, the major structural issues that need to be considered and the structure and parameters used to gauge the optimum amount of debt/equity in the capital structure.

    Participants will acquire a thorough understanding of the various types of debt that are available, including both senior and junior loans and the various types of bonds which are being used increasingly by private equity firms and corporates, as well as the key issues for the providers of both loans and bonds.

    The programme covers critical issues from the perspective of the PE firm and an understanding of how their funds are structured as this means they approach transactions from a different perspective to corporates. Finally, the varied roles of management, key issues that arise for them and their interaction with the PE investors are also covered as these aspects are vital to ensure management remain properly incentivised to create value.

    The programme will benefit those involved in private equity whether directly (e.g. investor, manager or lender) or indirectly, typically as a professional advisor. It adopts a pan-European approach to the topic but the presenter is able to discuss issues relevant in the USA and Asia in view of his exposure to those markets if participants require. Reference will be made to current trends and data in the markets across Europe.

    Participants will be provided with numerous case studies to reinforce the various aspects and will also be provided with an LBO model which will be used to structure a transaction.

    The fourth and fifth day of the course will cover the key elements of modelling in an LBO analysis. Participants will value the target business using historic data and available equity research. The valuation process will incorporate absolute and relative valuation techniques. Once the target business has been valued, participants will be introduced to LBO analysis and construct an LBO model.

    The LBO modelling analysis will be developed by assessing the debt capacity of the business to determine the range of capital structures available for the transaction and how credit analysis is used in the LBO modelling process.

    The participants will then cover more complex LBO instruments such as warrants and PIKs and how to calculate returns to each of the equity and debt providers.

    Participants will model a more complex capital structure and calculate exit values and the IRRs generated by each investor. Using the integrated model participants will then analyse various scenarios (management case, base case, payout case) to derive the optimum financing structure taking into account the financial constraints of each investor.

    The participants will undertake an adjusted present value (“APV”) analysis to determine where value has been created in the LBO transaction, using an APV model and finally look at recovery analysis for a failed LBO transaction.

    Case Study: The participants will use a variety of case studies and exercises during the two days, based on publicly quoted and generic businesses.

    Participants will be required to bring a laptop and a calculator to the course

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    The commercial property market has of course flourished over the last few decades and even after the recent credit crunch continues to be attractive to investors.  As in many markets, the availability of debt finance is key to enabling investors to maximise returns. Yet lenders need to be more careful than ever to ensure that all risks are properly covered, and well-drafted legal documents are vital.

    This course focuses on the loan and security documents for real estate finance.  It starts with an examination of the main property-related provisions of the Loan Market Association (LMA) model forms of property investment facility agreement and facility agreement for property development projects.  That will be followed by a review of key provisions of the security documents.  Finally it will explain the restrictions imposed to subordinate the equity funding and other intercreditor terms.

    Structuring & Negotiating Mezzanine, Second Lien and Junior Debt

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview:

    The junior credit spectrum has witnessed a rise in issuance in the last few years driven by the confluence of a number of beneficial factors. Traditional bank lenders have curtailed lending and leverage, particularly to smaller deals, in the face of increasingly restricted by external regulations, such as Basel III, and internal compliance requirements. This has paved the way for the emergence of alternative / direct lenders who are more willing to offer a raft of riskier, but higher-yielding, junior debt instruments to meet the desire for higher leverage (and thus returns) sought by borrowers.

    PIK has been one of the main beneficiaries of this trend although the demise of Phones4U may see lenders being more selective.. Second-lien has started 2015 with a bang (q.v. Host Europe) and looks set to enjoy a bumper 2015. The 2nd lien loan market (as opposed to the note market) had been nascent for some years but sprang to life last summer with a resurgence of issuance which pushed issuance for the year (effectively the second-half) to €2,4 billion. However, this revived second lien features some notable differences to its earlier incarnation and to its U.S. cousin. At the same time Unitranche has gained increasing acceptance and has emerged as a serious alternative to the traditional senior/mezzanine combination.

    The resurrection of 2nd Lien, coupled with the increasing acceptance of unitranche and junior notes has had a negative impact on competing mezzanine deals and issuance has suffered accordingly. However, mezzanine still retains a strong presence in deals which are too small to accommodate, second lien, unitranche much less bonds.

    This programme examines the range of junior debt loan products available in the market, the use an application of the various instruments, the typical terms and conditions, market pricing and returns. The key risk areas for junior lenders and the related aspect of structuring issues and debt capacity.

    European markets differ from US markets to the extent that restructurings in the former are typically out-of-court (as opposed to the statutory approach of Chapter 11 in the US). This coupled with the different approaches in the various European jurisdictions means that inter-creditor issues assume a critical aspect of structuring and the programme deals with the key issues plus the additional protection required for deals with a US dimension.

    The course is highly practical and interactive and will include case studies to illustrate and reinforce the topics covered.

    Participants will be required to bring a laptop to the course.
