The coronavirus pandemic has left the corporate sector scrambling for cash. So far, a relatively robust financial system has been able to provide short-term funding, mainly through the revolving lines of bank credit available to most firms. But will revolving lines be enough to bridge companies through the crisis?
The pandemic is a rapid and severe external shock that affects nearly all players the same way. This webinar will discuss how the interventions explored here will leverage resources and skills in the financial markets from which the economy will emerge less damaged as the shock subsides and markets return to normal.
This session will explore how to manage the liquidity crisis and level out the gaps in cashflow:
• Exploring how corporate balance sheets are already highly leveraged and will struggle to obtain financing from their existing loan creditors in the current climate
• Analyzing the structural limits on lenders and the likelihood of extending any additional capital to even the most leveraged borrowers
• Looking at plausible solutions for lower-rates companies – private capital investors
• Discussing possible government intervention measures
