    Slovenia court ruling enables first bank bail-in repayment

    A Slovenian appellate court has upheld a verdict by a lower court that a local bank had to repay two owners of subordinated bonds scrapped during Slovenia's 2013/14 bank overhaul, raising the possibility that more bondholders might be repaid. The Celje Higher Court confirmed to Reuters on Friday that it upheld the verdict because "the bank did not fully inform" its clients about the possible consequences of purchasing subordinated bonds.

    Apollo’s Plan Is to Loan, Not Own in $1.8 Billion Newspaper Deal

    (Bloomberg) -- Apollo Global Management LLC co-president Jim Zelter knows what many on the Street are thinking.Why would a private-equity firm -- whose name is synonymous with acquiring struggling businesses on the cheap and turning them around for huge profits -- make a $1.8 billion loan to a company in the beleaguered newspaper industry if it didn’t expect to own it one day?When it comes to the financing of New Media Investment Group Inc.’s takeover of Gannett Co., he insists that’s not the plan. In fact, Zelter, a former banker who led the expansion of Apollo’s credit investment arm, says the rationale behind the firm’s largest-ever direct-lending commitment is simple: He believes the new company can thrive.“This was always meant to be a performing loan,” he said in a phone interview. “It’s not a distressed-for-control transaction.”Zelter -- who oversees about $200 billion of credit investments, more than double Apollo’s entire private equity portfolio -- says the transaction is a vote of confidence in New Media Chief Executive Officer Mike Reed and his track record in acquiring and managing media assets.Yet that confidence comes at a steep price for the longtime news executive, who will take control of USA Today and major metro publications such as the Arizona Republic and Detroit Free Press once the Gannett acquisition closes.The combined company will pay a 6.5% arranging fee for the five-year loan and an annual interest rate of 11.5%, according to regulatory filings. Apollo is expected to pocket the majority of the fee by funding the loan at a discount of 95 cents on the dollar, according to a person with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be named because the details are private.A spokesman for New Media declined to comment. A spokesman for Apollo declined to comment on the fee.“The merger has a lot of industrial logic,” Zelter said. “We believe Mike and his team will make the right moves in terms of being thoughtful about digital strategy and the manner they will operate the business going forward.”The loan to New Media is one of many investments Apollo has made in out-of-favor sectors in recent years. Its private equity arm has bought DVD kiosks, penny-counting machines and discount grocery stores. As with all high-risk businesses, there’s always the possibility that things won’t work out as planned.Looking at the interest rate, “you have to assume there is a lot of risk there,” Howard Marks, co-chairman of distressed-debt manager Oaktree Capital Group LLC, said in Bloomberg TV interview Thursday. “I would be surprised to learn that it’s loan-to-own, but depending on how risky the proposition is I’m sure that not getting paid and instead ending up as an owner must factor into the picture.”\--With assistance from Erik Schatzker.To contact the reporter on this story: Davide Scigliuzzo in New York at dscigliuzzo2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Natalie Harrison at nharrison73@bloomberg.net, Boris KorbyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    UPDATE 1-Repayment influx leaves loan managers flush with cash as US supply wanes

    Billions of dollars in loan repayments are set to leave US investors flush with cash as the market continues to grapple with a low supply of new deals, and investors favor highly rated transactions, while lower-rated borrowers struggle to get loans done at their original terms. Some US$26bn in institutional loan repayments trickled back to investors throughout July, according to S&P, including paydowns from BB- rated First Data and Ba1/BBB- rated resort developer Las Vegas Sands, among other higher-rated borrowers. “These prepayments are high-quality paper, which large mutual funds, (exchange-traded funds) ETFs, and (Collateralized Loan Obligations) CLOs to a lesser extent will need to replace,” said Ryan Kohan, a leveraged loan portfolio manager at Western Asset Management.

    Apollo Takes on Wall Street With Massive Newspaper Loan Deal

    (Bloomberg) -- Apollo Global Management LLC has made its most significant move yet to encroach on a corner of finance long dominated by Wall Street banks.The private equity firm has agreed to provide nearly $1.8 billion of debt financing to support New Media Investment Group Inc.’s acquisition of Gannett Co., in a deal that will bring USA Today and over 200 other publications under the same roof.The loan is the largest direct-lending commitment ever undertaken by Apollo and one of the biggest ever arranged outside of Wall Street to finance a corporate takeover, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because the details are private.New Media also had bank financing available for the acquisition, but the debt provided by Apollo ended up being more attractive, another person said. Structured as a five-year senior secured term loan paying an interest rate of 11.5%, the loan would make Apollo the combined company’s only major creditor.The deal underscores the inroads private equity firms and other direct lenders are making in originating corporate loans, often in competition with traditional investment banks. Apollo has the largest credit-investing business among its private equity rivals, with around $200 billion under management as of the end of June.Transactions of this size are typically financed in the broadly-syndicated loan market, where groups of banks arrange deals and distribute them to institutional investors. But direct lenders have become an attractive alternative for companies seeking to secure financing quickly, especially during times of increased volatility in public markets, even though they often charge higher interest rates.Unitranche loans like Apollo’s, which meld first-priority and subordinated claims into one, have grown in size and popularity in recent years, as investors such as pension funds and insurance companies pour hundreds of billions of dollars into private debt funds. They are attractive for lenders because they don’t divide creditors into different classes, making any negotiations with the company -- and restructurings -- easier.Proceeds from the Apollo loan, which can be prepaid with no penalty, will be used to fund the cash component of the purchase price as well as to repay New Media and Gannett’s existing debt, the companies said in a statement.Total debt at closing will be equivalent to 3.5 times a measure of earnings for the combined company. Management said it expects to achieve $275 million to $300 million of annual costs savings, which would bring that ratio to around 2.3 times. Executives expect to realize the vast majority of those savings within two years of closing.(Updates with scope of committment in third paragraph and details of loan starting in fourth paragraph)To contact the reporters on this story: Davide Scigliuzzo in New York at dscigliuzzo2@bloomberg.net;Nabila Ahmed in New York at nahmed54@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Natalie Harrison at nharrison73@bloomberg.net, Dawn McCarty, Boris KorbyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
