Event of Default

if you are experiencing one of these, things are not going well. As discussed in the definition of Default, Indentures and Credit Agreements basically have three stages of trouble: the Default, the Event of Default and Acceleration. At stage two, the Event of Default, the Default has matured into an Event of Default because the Issuer or Borrower has failed to cure the Default (and in some cases a disgruntled Lender or Bondholder has provided a required notice) within a specified period of time (or Cure Period). Although note that certain Default events such as Bankruptcy Defaults are automatic Events of Default.
