Loan Market Association Sub-Participation Agreement

Written by on April 10th, 2021 // Filed under

In the event that the sub-participant may be an inconvenience or not a lender, it may be possible (i) to submit the increase in partial participation to the third party and (ii) to enter into a new sub-participation agreement with the third party. The consequence of such a scheme would be that the economic benefit of the loan would be transferred without any of the above disadvantages being borne. It is clear that the need to negotiate the terms of such an agreement with a third party may delay a quick resolution, but such a transfer would effectively reduce the credit risk of the original donor (although the sub-participant is exposed to the same risk of insolvency compared to the new donor). The documentation of the LMA is developed after extensive consultation with the main credit firms and law firms in order to present an agreed common vision of documentary structures, avoiding the under-participation of novations and contracts, since it does not involve any transfer of rights or obligations. On the contrary, it creates a new set of rights and obligations between the existing and a new lender. The initial loan is maintained and the relationship between the borrower and the original lender is not affected. In other words, an under-participation agreement is totally different from the original transaction. As part of the participation agreement recommended by the Loan Market Association (LMA), widely used in English legal affairs, the disc lender (or the equity donor) agrees to pay the participant a percentage of the amounts collected by the borrower. This form expressly states that “the Grantor is required to execute a transfer certificate as required in the credit contract, either with the member (if the party becomes the lender of the data set) or with the third party (. B, for example, another banking unit that agrees to acquire the position from a participant). Our documentation is developed after extensive consultation with leading credit firms and law firms to represent a common consensus vision of documentation structures. Standardizing document “boiler panels” allows lenders and borrowers to focus on the most important commercial aspects of individual transactions.

However, Spanish law does not explicitly regulate such transactions. This may lead to a new characterization under Spanish law. More recently, debtors are beginning to argue that a partial interest is in fact a transfer of debts. The consequences of a transfer of rights are as follows: For most LMA sub-participations, each party may request an increase. Parties are required to “make reasonable commercial efforts to, as soon as possible, ensure that the sub-participant (or any other person who may sanitize as a sub-participant) becomes a lender after the credit documentation.” The transfer of the loan to the participant is subject to the provisions of the credit documentation and applicable law. Under-participation agreements that allow for an increase generally provide that the existing partial participation agreement expires at the deadline for the increase — the date the agent designates as such according to the credit documentation. MASTER PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT FOR TRADE TRANSACTIONS date [date] between [Part A] and … This master participation agreement for commercial transactions … Trade in deposits denominated in the currency in question continues in the New York market where the main drivers of the success of such contracts in the Spanish market are that (i) the main bank is able to withdraw non-performing debt securities from its balance sheet; (ii) that international investors have acquired a credit position without having to deal directly with the debtor and without having to pay stamp duty or any other type of notarized fees related to the transaction; and (iii) allow the leading bank to transfer risks without taking a sale that could be costly and is sometimes prohibited or limited by the underlying loan agreement.
