Global cash flow is critical to analyzing and underwriting commercial borrowers, especially smaller, privately held firms, where the owners and the company are so closely bound together that their assets, liabilities, and income are comingled. The session will explain how to calculate the company’s free cash flow and the guarantors’ personal cash flows, and how to compare it to their existing and proposed debts by means of global debt service coverage. A case study illustrates the total process.
This session shows you how to identify and measure cash flows generated by the borrowing entity and its guarantors to see if the global cash flow is enough to repay their debts.
