Real Estate Subordinated Debt

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

8:30–9:45 a.m.

Breakfast will be served at 8:00 a.m.

Rising delinquency rates on commercial mortgages are beginning to test the complex intercreditor arrangements at the heart of mezzanine and AB note financings. Against this backdrop, our program focuses on the key factors affecting the leverage and recovery prospects of mezzanine lenders and B note holders in distressed real estate assets. In particular, we will explore:

  • Extent of subordination of mezzanine lenders 
    vs. B note holders

  • Typical rights and remedies of junior lenders in a default situation—consent rights, cure rights, purchase rights, UCC foreclosure—and their practical impact on restructuring dynamics

  • Effectiveness of bankruptcy-remoteness features

  • Specific bankruptcy-related risks for junior lenders
