High Yield and Leveraged Finance Analysis and Investing

A practical 2-day course presented by Rupesh Tailor.

This course begins with foundation work covering background on the high yield and leveraged finance market, the instruments and their key terms and conditions, leveraged buyout (LBO) structuring and a cash flow template that provides key insights on corporate debt service capacity.

The course then considers business, financial and instrument aspects of high yield credit analysis, recovery analysis and common drivers of corporate distress, and valuation. Real company examples and in-depth case studies cover a variety of high yield issuers across sectors and geographies.

These case studies illustrate various investment situations that arise in the high yield space – companies in structural decline, successful LBOs, unsuccessful LBOs, turnaround situations, project finance-like situations and fallen angels.
