An Afternoon with the IECA, 'Structured Commodity Finance Transactions'

Gregory J. Nowak, a partner and a practice leader for hedge funds in Pepper Hamilton’s Funds Services Practice Group, will be speaking at the International Energy Credit Association's (IECA's) educational and networking event titled "An Afternoon with the IECA: Opportunities for Innovation in the Energy Sector." Mr. Nowak will speak on the following panel at 3:30–5:00 PM:

Structured Commodity Finance Transactions
After a period of low prices and low volatility in the energy sector, late 2017 and early 2018 showed more lively markets, bringing both more uncertainty and more opportunities. Alternative sources of funding will be on the radar for many treasurers and originators. From working capital to CAPEX programs, companies appear to be looking beyond traditional sources of financing to spur growth. Commodity-based structured financing, in the form of prepays, postpaids or inventory carry transactions are back in fashion. This panel will discuss some of the features of these structures and explore how companies decide their funding strategy in light of market, counterparty and legal risks.

CLE credit available.
