NIRI Houston is pleased to have Joshua Buksbaum join us for a luncheon discussion on "Understanding Ratings and How It Impacts Debt Issuance".

The IR community historically tilts toward equity issuance and has a good understanding of public equity.  But has your company issued debt or considered issuing debt?  Do you understand the drivers for a debt issuance and how ratings are an integral part of reduced funding on debt?  Have you interacted with debt investors at investor conferences or during high yield bus tours?  This presentation will review how ratings are used in debt issuance and some of the important talking points that may be useful for IR professionals.

Speaker: Joshua Buksbaum, S&P Ratings, Director - Business Development
