Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

Within: Capital markets: high-yield debt offerings

White & Case LLP has traditionally been stronger on the manager side, with the firm leveraging its strong relationships with major global lenders to routinely advise underwriters on major domestic and cross-border high-yield offerings. However, the firm’s focus on raising its issuer-side profile has paid dividends, and it handled a string of headline mandates for major corporations through 2017. Most notably, New York partners Gary Kashar and Andrew Weisberg advised Calpine on a tack-on private placement of notes worth $560m. The same team also assisted Dynergy with a $850m offering of notes and a $1.2bn cash tender offer. Underwriter-side highlights include Kenneth Suh acting for the joint lead arrangers on two notes offerings worth $1.4bn by Golden Nugget connected to its complex reorganization with Landry’s. Also in New York, Ronald Brody and Jonathan Michels advised Jefferies and Macquarie Capital as joint book-running managers and initial purchasers on Everi Payments’ $375m offering of senior unsecured notes.
