Debtwire Expands with Restructuring Data Platform and Debtwire Par

25 April 2018
New York, April 25, 2018 - Debtwire, the leading provider of expert news, data and analysis on global leveraged credit, today announced the launch of two new offerings: Restructuring Data and Debtwire Par. For 15 years, Debtwire has provided the investor and advisor communities with market-moving news, key data points and in-depth research across the lifecycle of a credit. Extending Debtwire’s legacy of trust, these new products promise to transform and improve the way financial professionals make informed business decisions.
 
Debtwire’s Restructuring Data solution tracks all necessary data and allows users to quickly search case information, generate real-time versions of crucial in-depth reports and create custom league tables. Complemented by our editorial coverage, Debtwire doesn't just track the first day, but follows a case all day, every day. 
 
“For years, researching bankruptcy cases meant long hours digging through far-flung sources of public information,” said Jack Tracy, head of legal analysis, Americas for Debtwire. “Debtwire’s Restructuring Data platform has changed that. It is designed around ease of use and tailored to each user’s needs - from quick data searches to a bird’s eye view of the entire market.”
 
The database includes key information, such as:
  • Case and company information
  • Interested parties and party debt holdings
  • Involved creditors, investors and advisors
  • Judge profiles and related in-court litigation
 
The Restructuring Database, an integral component of the Restructuring Data portal, features a robust dataset of transactional data for DIP financings and rights offerings. This allows buy-side analysts to parse the data to determine how aggressively to price potential DIP financings based on time period, size, sector, etc. The database also enables custom league tables to rank the leading firms in the restructuring space, so that advisors can see how they stack up against their competition.
 
As the market is increasingly dependent on data and analytics to fuel business decisions, Restructuring Data is just one of the many enhancements to Debtwire’s data offering.
 
Debtwire’s new Primary Issuance Data platform, Primary ID, tracks global bond and loan data, features custom league tables across banks and law firms and allows unlimited exportable downloads. Primary ID is the data component of Debtwire Par. Across editorial, data and insights, Debtwire Par changes the way financial professionals understand the global performing credit markets.
 
Debtwire Par is backed by Debtwire’s heritage and market recognition and also supported by the entire Acuris product portfolio,” said Colm “CJ” Doherty, global head of Primary Market Analysis for Debtwire. “It provides an unparalleled amount of information in one place that benefits both the buy-side and advisory firms including, CLO’s, hedge funds, investment banks and law firms.”
 
Consisting of three main focus points, Debtwire Par gives users the information necessary to confidently identify opportunities before the competition.
 
Key features include:
  • Editorial – Information you can count on with an extensive breadth of coverage, from origination and M&A financing to syndication and post-close news
