However, the general format of the leverage agreement will be familiar to users of investment level documents, and some of the provisions of the “Boilerplate” platform are substantially the same. A number of these common provisions are detailed from a borrower`s perspective in our existing ACT Borrower`s Guide to the Investment Grade Documents (available under www.treasurers.org/loandocumentation/investmentgrade). Relevant sections are cross-referenced in the text of this guide. While the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) is closely involved in the settlement of the terms of the LMA Facility Agreements for Investment Level Borrowers (the “Investment Degree Documents”), LMA has not obtained the views or comments of the ACT on the terms of the Leverage Agreement. The leverage agreement is therefore a more lender-friendly document than investment level documents and is especially not approved by the ACT.
