Leveraged Loans New LBO Deals Rein in Leverage Amid Regulatory Pressure

Regulatory pressure is curtailing how aggressively new leveraged buyouts are being structured, a fact made clear by recent credit statistics.

Since the Shared National Credit Review of last summer, the average debt multiple of new large LBOs – the most consistent sample LCD tracks when it comes to credit stats – has eased to an average of 5.6x over the past five months, from 5.8x during first three quarters of last year and a recent apex of 6.3x during the third quarter of 2014.
