As companies of all shapes and sizes face the prospect of challenges with loan covenants in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, many are considering requesting waivers or amendments from their lenders. Last week, we had a conversation with Reuben Daniels, founder and CEO of loan arranger EA Markets, about the loan modifications companies are likely to request and the concessions their lenders will probably expect in order to offer that relief.

Today, in the final installment in this series, we are talking to Daniels about the approach and tone companies should take in presenting their loan-modification proposal to lenders, as well as the process they should use to guide development of their presentation.

Meg Waters:  Last time, we were discussing the different types of loan modifications a company might ask for in this climate, as well as the concessions their lenders might require. Developing a waiver or amendment proposal is complex, isn’t it?
