Do Adverse Oil Price Shocks Change Loan Contract Terms for Energy Firms?

Blake Marsh, David Rodziewicz () and Rajdeep Sengupta

Economic Review, 2017, issue Q IV, 59-86

Abstract: This article examined whether the relationship between creditworthiness and loan spreads for energy firms in the syndicated loan market changed after the 2014 oil-price shock. {{p}} The authors use syndicated loans, which are jointly funded by several financial institutions, because the syndicated loan market is a major source of debt financing for oil firms. Credit conditions tightened following the oil-price shock in mid-2014.
