Another LBO Deal Bites The Dust....

Looks like Ceberus and others that just a few month ago saw the golden era of private equity are trying to back out of as many deals they have made during the latest quarter of this period. Thank god that Ceberus had forced Daimler only to a few more concessions..... Mish once called the mania "Buyout Bingo". It has worked fine on the upside.....

Sieht ganz so aus als wenn Cebrus & Co die noch vor wenigen Monaten einie goldene Ära für Ihre Branche gesehen haben wollen momentan alles mögliche Versuchen um aus Ihren Kaufverträgen auszusteigen.

More trouble for Ceberus.... This deal was done during the past 2 yaers close to the paek of the housing market.....

Hier kommt weiteres Ungemach auf Ceberus zu..... Dieser Deal wurde binnen der letzten 2 Jahre auf dem Peak des Immobubbles abgewickelt.....

That has put the unit, known as ResCap, in danger of violating terms of loan agreements, triggering concerns that its lenders will demand immediate payment or force the unit into bankruptcy protection if GMAC or its owners don't step in with an equity

Citigroup Punished in First Bond Sale Since Subprime Writedowns

Citigroup yesterday sold $4 billion of 10-year notes at the highest yield relative to benchmark interest rates in the bank's history, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
