Power Solutions’ cross-border loan-and-bond deal was the focal point of last week’s activity, with loan demand magnified by the lack of available product elsewhere and both the secured and unsecured bonds playing well amid a bull-market run. Indeed, several other issuers pushed ahead with secured bonds as last week’s high-yield volume raced north of $10 billion, further depressing loan activity.

BDC Preview: Week Of March 11-March 15, 2019

Posted by Nicholas Marshi, BDC Reporter on Mar 13, 2019 10:25:00 AM

Better Late Than Never: The most interesting news of the week will occur on Friday when the shareholders of the three Medley Group related companies finally vote on whether to merge together or not. Of course, the vote has now been twice suspended, apparently due to governmental delays relating to the Federal shut-down. Last week, after the vote was delayed at the last minute, very little was said by the parties involved, except confirmation of the date and times of the votes. Even the BDC Reporter did not have anything new to say, nor do we now. We’ll have much more to say once the votes have occurred, the last of which is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. EST. Then there will be fireworks of one kind or another.

Oaktree vehicles hold Windstream’s prepetition debt

Although a pair of competing industry conferences took many buysiders out of pocket in the first part of last week, high-yield activity roared back to life late in the week via a procession of drive-bys, while loan arrangers launched a trio of large LBO deals off the pipeline as the secondary market continued to move higher. Several secondary situations also kept market participants on their toes, what with Windstream Services filing for bankruptcy, Neiman Marcus disclosing the framework of an extension/exchange plan and issuers releasing a flurry of earnings reports.
