eLearning Program: Problem Credits II - Early Warning Signs and Effective Actions
Course Dates: August 10 - August 14, 2020
Problem credits, how to identify them early and deal with them effectively has always been relevant for lenders. However, in the current economic climate it is even more immediate and necessary. This course starts out by covering the key factors that cause companies to become financially distressed. It emphasizes the various early warning signs that lenders must be aware of and the importance of quickly identifying companies that are having problems to limit value destruction and improve recovery rates for lenders. Signs include understanding how and when cash flows become distressed, as well as measuring and assessing liquidity through a downturn. The roles of covenants and collateral are discussed, including how they can fail to protect lenders. Finally, the course works through the measures that must be taken to resolve financial distress.
This highly interactive course will be delivered in five 3-hour sessions, each with a 15-minute break. This course will be run over five consecutive days, three hours each day from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm Eastern time, and will be run in Adobe Connect to create a virtual experience to mirror many of the benefits of in-person classes, including case studies.
Upon completion of this seminar, delegates will be able to:
» Recognize how credits behave through an economic/sector cycle
