Consent Solicitation

the form of relief sought by Issuers who want to amend Bond Covenants. Consent Solicitations are generally less common than bank loan Amendments. Because Bond Covenants are incurrence-based, unlike Financial Covenants (which are found in Credit Agreements), Issuers are less likely to need relief under Bond Covenants. For the same reason, CovenantBorrowers are unlikely to seek Amendments to the applicable Credit Agreement. Bondholders are also likely to charge Issuers more for consents, in part because the longer and more punitive Call Protection Bondholders typically enjoy gives them greater Leverage. See Non-Call Period.
