The authors of the 2002 framework agreement have completely reviewed and redesigned the calculation of early termination payments, i.e. damages. The first and second methods, as well as the “market ratios and loss”, have been abolished and replaced by the so-called “close-out” amount. These changes should lead to greater speed, efficiency and (hopefully) objectivity in the calculation of advance termination payments. The parties have refused in the past to add such transactions. The parties were concerned that an accidental or technical delivery failure in any of these transactions could trigger a default event under the 1992 Agreement. In particular, rest was vulnerable to this type of breakdowns and delivery failures. The 2002 agreement helps to improve this outcome by requiring “the acceleration or early termination of all transactions that have not been carried out in accordance with the documents in force for that specified transaction.” In other words, for a default to occur under the 2002 agreement, the documentation governing the specified transaction in question would have to be terminated prematurely. The new language of the credit event in the event of mergers goes far beyond the 1992 contractual provision. In particular, the new agreement incorporates many indirect changes of control or substantial changes in capital structures, even if there has been no change of ownership that were not relevant until now. The following conditions must be included in an ISDA (International Swap and Derivatives Agreement): a standard sample contract contains the standard framework contract (as published by the International Swaps and Derivative Association), timelines explaining the commercial terms of certain transactions, confirmation setting out the financial and economic terms of the transaction, and boilerplate standard clauses such as: Waiver, Remedies, Communications and Dispute Resolution.
The abolition of the first method should not be a problem. In fact, the parties had generally stopped using it before the ink in the 1992 agreement was dry. The banking authorities have effectively killed the choice of the first method by banning its use by banks. Some changes are revolutionary, such as z.B. the complete revision of the calculation of early end-of-life payments. Other changes reflect the codification of market practices, such as. B the inclusion of a contractual set-off clause in the text of the 2002 Agreement itself. Finally, many changes have been made to clarify and simplify the agreement, such as for example.
B changes to the non-payment provision. This discussion focuses mainly on changes that could be of major concern to a party that unites the new document. The “Default under Specified Transaction” provision provides that it is a default event under the agreement where a party (or its credit carrier provider or a particular entity) has been late in a “specified transaction” with its counterparty (or the credit carrier provider or declared entity of the counterparty). . . .
