Credit analysis is the bread and butter of lending. Expert analysis is the icing on the cake. Are you a professional analyst? When was the last time you took the opportunity to hone your skills — especially in regard to assessing cash flow? Whether you’re new to lending or need a brush up, you’ll benefit from learning more about global cash flow and debt service coverage.

After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:

  • Calculate debt service coverage using various techniques
  • Select the most appropriate cash flow analysis for each borrower
  • Identify what information is needed to perform a cash flow analysis and why specific information is necessary
  • Determine global cash flow, including family living
  • Assess factors that can impact future cash flow

Webinar Details
This presentation will cover the essentials of cash flow analysis. It will address the unique characteristics of analyzing commercial real estate (construction and permanent financing), C&I (short term, equipment, and real estate), and basic agricultural cash flow. You’ll learn about UCA and traditional EBITDA analysis and when each is most appropriate. The session will also cover the fundamentals of global cash flow, including the type of information needed to do a proper analysis of the borrowing entity as a whole, including family living expenses.

One of the most important concepts of analyzing cash flow is that today’s loans are paid with tomorrow’s cash. In addition to the basic techniques of cash flow analysis, you’ll learn about the items necessary to consider when assessing a borrower’s ability to sustain adequate cash flow over the term of the loan. The emphasis of this webinar will be on how to make the calculations and what should be considered when choosing the most appropriate type of analysis based on the borrower’s unique situation.

Who Should Attend?
This informative session is designed for commercial lenders, credit analysts, credit department managers, senior loan officers, senior credit officers, loan review personnel, branch managers serving commercial borrowers, chief risk officers, and auditors.

When a bank enters into a lending arrangement with a borrower, or some time thereafter, the bank may wish to sell a portion of the loan to another bank. Or a bank may wish to purchase a portion of a loan made by another bank. Such transactions may occur in connection with short-term borrowings, term loans, construction loans or other forms of extension of credit. This area of lending is closely monitored by banking regulators because of the inherent risk in this type of lending, and banks’ failure to take precautions to avoid undue problems.
