Bank credit holders cover two types of credit risks: (i) the borrower`s inability to pay the underlying bank loan (which also applies to an assignment); and (ii) the occurrence of an insolvency event of the impented funder or the inability of the funder to meet its obligations under the participation agreement. A very important distinction between LSTA documentation and LMA documentation, which affects the second form of such credit risk, is the way in which the form of the LSTA and LMA participation agreements is structured. LMA-style holdings create a debtor-creditor relationship between the lender and the acquirer of the interest.26 In the event of default, the participant is treated as an unsecured creditor of the lender, with no economic share in the underlying loan. On the other hand, the LSTA`s holdings are supposed to allow for a real sale of the economic shares of the loan. In other words, under the LSTA`s holdings, the economic and economic interests of the loan are transferred from the loan to the member and not to a portion of the estate of the insolvent business. Under U.S. law, a typical LSTA participation agreement leads to the participant being considered the economic and economic beneficiary of the underlying loan. The mass of the donor`s bankruptcy is considered only as the owner of the simple legal property of the underlying loan. Therefore, the underlying economic interests of the loan in which he was involved are not considered to be part of the donor`s estate27, regardless of the nature of the documents agreed by the parties during the execution of the secondary loan contract, both the LSTA and the LMA have adopted essentially similar methods for determining the purchase price of secondary credit transactions (whether negotiated by or by emergency control).
In the LSTA and LMA transactions, the buyer generally receives the benefits of all payments or distributions made with respect to credits sold from and after the trading date. The only significant exception to the LSTA and LMA price agreements provides: that the seller retains the right to accrued and unpaid interest for the execution of the credits during the period up to (i) seven (7) working days after the trading date (“T-7”) for LSTA-Par transactions or ten (ten) business days after the trading date (“T-10”) for LMA-Par-Par (“T-10”) transactions. , or ii twenty (20) business days after the trading date (“T-20”) for LSTA and LMA emergency operations. The LSTA and the LMA by and the troubled trades also require: That the buyer pay seller interest on the basis of a one-month libor (or euribor to a month) on the purchase price that the buyer would have paid to the seller if the trade had been closed either i) T-7 for LSTA-Par-Trades transactions, or T-10 for LMA-Par-Trades transactions , or (ii) T-20 for LSTA and LMA transactions.
