Corporate loans to finance large operations

A syndicated loan makes it possible to finance large operations, since it is granted between several financial entities, each of which contributes a percentage of the borrowed money. It is a type of loan that spreads the risk among several entities and that allows them to share guarantees.

Banco Santander has experience in all kinds of sophisticated operations. Regarding syndicated loans, the Bank has a market share close to 18% as a Bookrunner. In 2019, it closed more than 80 operations in this role.

FAQs

Is it a very complex process? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

Contracting a Syndicated Loan is easier than negotiating multiple bilateral loans with different entities as it centralises the negotiation with the agent bank. The origin of the operation may be more complex than a bilateral one, but with this the company ensures the “framework” of long-term financing.

Is a syndicated loan more expensive in fees? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

The client ensures long-term financing at a specified margin. This saves recurring commissions from the renegotiation of bilateral operations.

Is it more expensive in margins? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

It doesn't have to be. A long-term price is set, avoiding the fluctuations in market margins and indexed to the company's leverage, so that companies with low leverage ratios are financed at low margins and vice versa. The profile of the company (whether it is highly leveraged or not) is paramount. The price obtained is appropriate for the level of debt.

Does it incur additional costs (solicitors, agencies, etc.)? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

The costs of syndicated loans are offset by the absence of periodic opening costs for bilateral loans. It allows a single representative (agent) and savings in administrative costs.

Does the syndicated loan limit the bargaining power with related banks? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

No, the company can design the financing together with the bank syndicate and maintain its relations, establishing the risk level of each entity.

Does the company lose control or management authority (waiver request for any unforeseen situation)? Icon / PlusCreated with Sketch.Icon / minusCreated with Sketch.

While complying with the business plan, the company does not lose flexibility. The syndicate only reflects in a contract the internal action policies of a company (no leverage above a certain level, not to provide guarantees above a set threshold ...) and its business plan, including certain deviation.
