Free 1-Hour Briefing on Researching High Yield Offerings

PLI and LLAGNY have teamed up to offer another free one-hour audio briefing to librarians, researchers, attorneys, and allied professionals.  This is the third in our ongoing series.

Researching High Yield Offerings – Tools and Resources to Help You Keep Pace

The past two years have been two of the healthiest on record for high yield offerings.  With offerings continuing at a frenetic pace, this program will be relevant for researchers and attorneys whose capital markets practice includes high yield transactions. The program will cover the documents that make up a high yield offering, with a focus on how to cull useful information from those documents, and will highlight the free and fee-based resources best suited to support the research needs in this practice area.

Discussion topics include:

  • What is a high yield offering
  • Overview of high yield market
  • Private placements and public offerings
  • Description of notes
  • Mechanics of a high yield offering
  • Sources for general and market information
  • Sources for precedents
  • Researching documents

This briefing, featuring instruction from a noted corporate researcher and an experienced practitioner, was conceived and created in cooperation with Practising Law Institute (PLI) and the Law Library Association of Greater New York (LLAGNY).  This briefing is chaired by Gitelle Seer, Janice E. Henderson, and Patricia Barbone.

Library vandal to serve time

This is both a legal and a library related piece – in that a library was vandalized and the vandal was caught and will be serving time in jail.  The headline in the Idaho Stateman reads: Boise library vandal sentenced to a month in jail.  A woman vandalized the public library ten times in the course of a year by pouring condiments such as maple syrup, ketchup, and mayonnaise down the book-drop.  After the library set up a surveillance system they were able to catch the culprit and bring her to trial.  The prosecutor did not push for jail, but the judge determined that at least twenty-seven days in jail would be served.  Read the full story here.

New Treatise Available – Sovereign Wealth Funds

PLI just published a new treatise entitled Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs).  Although they’ve existed for many years, the first decade of the 21st century saw a substantial surge in the assets of SWFs.  This, coupled with a more aggressive investment style, has resulted in a much greater awareness, by both governments and the public, of SWF activity.  In turn, this has generated an ongoing policy debate about the proper role of government regulation and taxation of these funds.

In Sovereign Wealth Funds, noted international tax lawyer Leonard Schneidman has assembled an array of essays, authored by a global collection of subject area experts, designed to explore three key aspects of SWFs: their regulation and governance, investment behavior, and taxation.  If your library or organization is interested in the SWF phenomenon and its practical legal, tax and financial implications—this is a valuable resource.
