In this highly scrutinized industry, it is critical to understand the regulatory agencies’ expectations, which are often influenced by economic factors.

What are they most concerned about regarding effective credit management? Get expert insight on how to practically meet their expectations and effectively communicate with them, including how to constructively discuss any criticisms or disagreements.

A well-prepared loan presentation is about answering basic questions. Who is the borrower? What is their loan request? How do they plan to pay it back? What if their expected source of repayment does not materialize? What is our institution’s level of risk? How will we monitor the borrower’s performance? A loan presentation’s length has little to do with its effectiveness. This program will address how to respond to the key questions all loan approvers need to answer in a concise, yet complete, manner. It will cover CRE, C&I, and agricultural credits, as well as personal loans to complex, high-net-worth borrowers. The program will focus on real-world expectations for quality loan presentations.

This session will explore the five vital financial factors all lenders must understand to determine a borrower’s overall financial condition: liquidity, leverage, asset management, operating performance, and cash flow. Liquidity measures the ability to meet short-term obligations as they become due. Leverage measures the degree to which a company’s assets are supported by creditors compared to support provided by owners. Asset management measures management’s ability to utilize capital assets to generate revenue. Operating performance measures management’s ability to generate profits from operating their companies. Cash flow measures management’s ability to generate cash from operating, investing, and financing activities. This session will define each factor and explain why they are important in the credit analysis process. Methods to determine each factor will be explored using financial statements, ratio analysis, reconciliation procedures, working capital analysis, and best practices in determining true cash flow.

Calculating debt service coverage (DSC) is a fundamental building block of credit analysis (AKA how do we get paid back?). One of the most important concepts is that today’s loans are paid with tomorrow’s cash flow. In addition to the basic techniques of cash flow analysis, including traditional DSC versus UCA, this program will explore the items that must be considered when assessing a borrower’s ability to sustain adequate cash flow over the term of the loan. The emphasis will not only be on how to make the calculations, but also on making an appropriate decision about the type of analysis based on the expected loan repayment. This presentation will also address the impacts of cash- vs. accrual-based accounting choices and how changes on the borrower’s balance sheet affect cash flow. It will cover the use of tax returns, internally prepared financial statements, and accountant-prepared financial statements in constructing accurate cash flow analyses.
