Solvency Compendium

Author:
Publisher: Andrew Smith
ISBN: 9780615309941
Release Date: 2008-07-01
Genre:

A solvency opinion provides assurance to a company's Board of Directors and/or the lenders that the transaction will not likely subject the Company and its unsecured and other creditors to undue financial distress. Houlihan will undertake a solvency opinion engagement for companies involved in highly leveraged transactions. Examples include leveraged buyouts, leveraged recapitalizations, leveraged dividends or other such situations where there may be minimal equity involved. Houlihan has also completed solvency opinions for spin-off transactions in conjunction with capital restructuring and significant debt refinancing.The Federal Bankruptcy Code defines "insolvent" as the condition in which the total of a person's debts exceeds the value of its property at a fair valuation. Recent case law suggests that the fair valuation of property is its value on a going-concern basis. A solvency letter expresses an independent expert opinion on a borrower's ability to remain solvent under the burden of additional liability, to pay debts as they mature, and to continue operations as a going-concern in dynamic economic conditions.In connection with a leveraged recapitalization, interested parties such as new secured lenders and sellers will often, due to fraudulent conveyance concerns, seek an independent determination and opinion as to the impact of the acquisition debt on working capital, cash flow, and equity value. Houlihan is highly familiar with the Tests of Capitalization and Solvency and is able to efficiently and cost-effectively provide analysis that provides a layer of comfort to interested parties.

Multi Level Governance and European Integration

Author: Liesbet Hooghe
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
ISBN: 9780585381664
Release Date: 2002-05-30
Genre: Political Science

European politics has been reshaped in recent decades by a dual process of centralization and decentralization. At the same time that authority in many policy areas has shifted to the supranational level of the European Union, so national governments have given subnational regions within countries more say over the lives of their citizens. At the forefront of scholars who characterize this dual process as 'multi-level governance,' Liesbet Hooghe and Gary Marks argue that its emergence in the second half of the twentieth century is a watershed in the political development of Europe. Hooghe and Marks explain why multi-level governance has taken place and how it shapes conflict in national and European political arenas.
