In many transactions, the borrowing base assets raise issues that are unique to the particular industry of the borrower.

When negotiating a credit agreement, several factors, including the borrowers risk profile and credit ratings, impact the breadth of the affirmative, negative and financial covenants imposed on the borrower. But some of the most burdensome credit agreements are asset based lending (ABL) credit agreements. The heart and soul of ABL lending is the collateral, and thus, ABL credit agreements often provide for intense lender monitoring and supervision because the borrowing base is tied to eligible assets. Under such a strict regime and without good advice from counsel, it is not uncommon for borrowers to trip an unintended default.

This topic will highlight the basics of ABL credit agreements, including common provisions and pitfalls, and provide lawyers and treasury professionals management with specific areas on which to focus their review during negotiations. This information will also help ensure that the persons responsible for administering ABL credit facilities understand best practices for compliance with their complex provisions.
