When is global cash flow needed? What if a business can qualify for a loan with their cash flow alone? Do additional businesses owned by one or more of the guarantors have to be reviewed? Examiners expect to see a consistently applied global debt service coverage methodology, and your lending staff must be able to provide clear and consistent answers when asked. For example, who should be included? Do you use the EBITDA or UCA method, and why? What level of financial detail is needed for related entities? What numbers are used: operating profit, net profit, or another number? How is debt repayment determined without complete debt schedules from each entity? This presentation will address key decisions and processes in global cash flow calculations.
