June 27, 2018 (New York) – International law firm Proskauer released its proprietary data report for the first half of 2018 at an invitation-only event last night for clients in the Private Credit space.
Steve Boyko, co-head of The Private Credit Group explains, “This study provides a detailed examination of more than 200 data points for approximately 70 transactions closed by our group this year. This report provides our clients with an in-depth analysis of the current state of the private credit markets.”
Key takeaways from the study include:
- Software and technology deals represented 20% of deals, displacing health care as the largest industry sector.
- Interest rate margins decreased across almost all product types.
- While the percentage of deals with financial covenants remains stable, EBITDA add-backs are increasing.
