A look back at the impact of COVID-19 on Canadian credit agreements and upcoming developments in 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the Canadian debt market. With changes to LIBOR and CDOR provisions on the horizon, corporations and lenders need to remain focused on developing secure and flexible strategies to effectively navigate the anticipated economic restart and recovery in the coming months.

In this webinar, Joyce Bernasek, Lisa Mantello and Ryan Hayes of Osler’s Banking & Financial Services practice look back at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian credit agreements and expected developments in the Canadian financing landscape in 2021. Discussion topics include:

  • Insights into the issues and creative solutions being used to address reporting and financial covenants, MAE clauses, and material contracts and contractual obligations in financing transactions

  • Lessons learned in lending in the current market

  • An update on fallback planning provisions for LIBOR and CDOR (not including the FCA and IBA announcements on LIBOR cessation made on March 5; for a detailed overview of the announcements and their implications, please read our Osler Update here)

  • A recap of the financial assistance available to businesses under Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan

We hope you can join us!
