Standardizing loan documentation is a core function of the LSTA. Our suite of primary and secondary loan market documents is consistently updated and augmented each year. Timely market advisories offer guidance and help resolve market issues.
The LSTA's Shift Date determinations are binding on all loan market participants. Parties to a distressed trade for which step up provisions apply are required to use the relevant shift date published by the LSTA. To submit a Shift Date Request, email LSTAShiftDates@lsta.org with the borrower name, the title and date of the credit agreement, the deal and/or facility CUSIP, and name of the administrative agent.
