Negotiating Credit Agreements: Top of Mind for Treasury

  • By Staff Writers
  • Published: 2/10/2016

For many U.S. companies, the pressure is on to review and renegotiate their credit facilities. Here’s why:

  • Interest rates have already began to inch upward.
  • There’s rising demand for credit because of an M&A surge and relatively cheap debt.
  • Banks are readying themselves for the onset of Basel III capital and liquidity regulations.

As a result, many practitioners report that their banks are urging them to review and potentially reopen credit facilities, even if they’re not due for some time, in order to lock in advantageous terms. While credit agreements are a perennial issue for treasurers, they are more top of mind now.

A new AFP Guide, Negotiating and Complying with Credit Agreements, produced in collaboration with law firm Hunton & Williams LLP, traces the steps companies take in negotiating their credit facilities and how they prepare for and execute their compliance responsibilities. The guide offers practical advice and best practices and includes six case studies that illustrate how companies of different sizes, in different industries and of various credit standing, are negotiating and complying with their credit agreements.
