    US loan issuance plummets in 2Q as market takes stock of new normal

    Issuance across the US syndicated loan market plummeted in the second quarter as the asset class navigated a slow recovery from the novel coronavirus that left borrowers scrambling for cash to keep their businesses alive while economies around the world gradually reopen. Companies from beleaguered sectors, including United Airlines and cruise ship operator Carnival Cruise Line, collectively raised billions of US dollars in new, costly loans to bolster liquidity amid a pandemic that forced many consumers to shelter at home throughout the second quarter. The wary buyside limited its exposure to low, Single B rated loans that are subject to fall to Triple C, which is just notches above a default.

    Ecolab shares jump 4% premarket after earnings beat

    Ecolab Inc. shares rose 4% premarket, ] after the water, hygiene and energy technology maker beat earnings estimates for the first quarter. St. Paul, Minn.-based Ecolab said it had net income of $283.4 million, or 97 cents a share, in the quarter, down from $296.5 million, or $1.01 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $1.13, ahead of the $1.06 FactSet consensus. Sales rose 2% to $3.581 billion from $3.505 billion, also ahead of the $3.503 billion FactSet consensus. Growth in the company's health care and life sciences segments offset weakness in upstream energy. "We have businesses with increased demand (including Food & Beverage, Healthcare, Food Retail, Life Sciences) and those with much less demand near term (including the Institutional business and Pest Elimination)," Chief Executive Douglas Baker said in a statement. "We expect the major COVID-19 impacts will be felt over the next few quarters and will be net unfavorable on both our top and bottom lines for the year." The company's institutional business saw strong demand for cleaning and sanitizing produce sales, offset by slow restaurant, lodging and entertainment facility customer demand due to the pandemic. The company is not offering guidance for the second quarter or full year. "We expect our second quarter will see the most significant impact from COVID-19 effects, and we expect a gradual improvement from those levels in the second half as the markets begin to recover and their demand for cleaning and sanitizing remains above normal," it said. Shares have fallen 2.8% in 2020 to date, while the S&P 500 has fallen 11%.
