Acceleration

the end of the line under an Indenture or Credit Agreement. The definitions of Default and Event of Default describe how Acceleration occurs. Following an Event of Default, the Bondholders (under an Indenture) or Lenders (under a Credit Agreement) have the right to “accelerate” the due date of their debts; in other words, they have the right to declare their Notes or loans immediately due and payable. Bankruptcy and insolvency Events of Default automatically lead to Acceleration.
