Intercreditor Agreement

an agreement that sets forth the rules of engagement between two groups of Lenders with respect to shared Collateral or other intercreditor relationship matters. Think of this as a prenuptial agreement between two classes of creditors. Apart from addressing the obvious point that the first lien Lenders get paid out first from Collateral proceeds and the second lien Lenders get paid out second in first lien/second lien deals, Intercreditor Agreements also lay out a number of important provisions regarding the right of each Lender group to take action with respect to the Collateral and the Borrower generally. For example, in the Mezz market, the terms of the Subordination are set forth in an Intercreditor Agreement between the Mezz Lenders and the administrative agent under the Credit Agreement.
