The LMA agreement aims to provide « normal » loans to British businesses. In particular, it assumes that, although the loan characteristics are not entirely identical to those mentioned above, the LMA contract may, subject to amendments, serve as the basis for the loan file. For example, in common law countries, particularly in less developed countries, the LMA agreement serves as the basis for many lending agreements (« developing countries »). Please note that there are three versions of the LMA agreement: term and revolving loan contracts, revolving loan contracts and long-term loan contracts. An agreement between a human individual lender and a borrower. The loan is secured by a guarantee from a third party who may be a friend, relative or business partner. It will probably be used for credit agreements to family and friends as well as for long business transactions. Strong provisions to protect the lender. Options for other repayment provisions and lenders` shares in the event of the borrower`s default. An agreement between a lender that may be an individual or an organization and a borrower who is a business. Guarantee (probably by business leaders).
Strong provisions to protect the lender. Options for other repayment provisions and lenders` shares in the event of the borrower`s default. Lots of other options. Make sure you know if you need a guarantee for the loan. Most agreements provide that in the event of one of the reported events, the Bank may terminate the outstanding facility and/or declare the loan immediately due and payable. Generally speaking, a borrower should, where possible, negotiate « grace periods » that assume that the borrower is informed of the corresponding breach and not just when the offence in question occurs. The borrower should also note that the loan can only be accelerated if the relevant default has occurred « and continues. » Otherwise, the banks might be able to accelerate even though the offence in question had been corrected, which would be totally unfair. The borrower should object to any attempt to repeat the insurance and guarantees or to have them increased insurance, since the result could be: (a) that a fixed-term loan, due to circumstances outside the borrower`s control, effectively becomes a debt loan; and b) that the breach of insurance and continuous guarantees causes cross-cutting failures in other agreements. In any event, the « substantial negative change » should be limited by the borrower`s ability to meet its obligations under the loan agreement and the borrower should attempt to qualify a guarantee as to the accuracy of the information provided by the borrower, in order to exclude oral information and information that has been disclosed incidentally.
