Best Efforts Syndication

a syndication where a lender commits to provide less than the entire amount of the loans (or even none of them), but agrees to use its “commercially reasonable” efforts (not “best” efforts, notwithstanding the name) to find Lenders to provide the loan. Traditionally used for risky Borrowers, complex transactions or syndications in bad markets.
