Debt Capital Market Update - Q1 2019

TKO Miller Debt Capital Market Analysis 

  • Leverage multiples remain at peak levels in M&A transactions due to an aggressive lending environment
  • Leverage multiples, as measured by Total Debt/EBITDA increased from 3.5x in 2012 to 3.9x in 2018 (as depicted in the graph below)
  • The low cost of debt will fuel aggressive growth initiatives for both strategic and financial buyers (i.e. greater ability to fund acquisitions)
  • The debt market is a key underlying driver of M&A valuations; valuations will decrease when leverage multiples fall and the cost of debt increases
  • Transactions will see increasing equity contributions in response to lower debt multiples and rising purchase price multiples compared to 2017 levels (as depicted in the graph below)
  • TKO Miller projects leverage conditions to remain highly supportive over the coming 9-15 months, but trade tariffs with China, a global economic downturn, or uncertain political conditions are capable of shifting conditions back to historical levels
