Join attorneys from Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s Public Finance Practice and our panel of experts for a high level overview of the transition from LIBOR. LIBOR is frequently called the world’s most important number, but – sooner or later – LIBOR will be going away. Municipal bond issuers and borrowers, together with underwriters, municipal advisors, bond attorneys and other bond professionals, will have to prepare now to meet the challenges arising from the transition from LIBOR to other benchmark interest rates for their bonds, swaps, loans or leases. This webinar will address the current timetable for LIBOR’s demise, the implications of the cessation of LIBOR for the municipal bond market, the various proposals for a replacement for LIBOR, the response of the IRS regarding the transition away from LIBOR for tax-exempt obligations and the continuing disclosure obligations of issuers and borrowers relating to the adoption of new benchmark rates in lieu of LIBOR.
