The Update on LIBOR Phase-Out panel session will discuss emerging issues including the evolution of uses of LIBOR language suggested to address the phaseout by groups such as the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) as well as the status of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate as a viable substitute index. Additional upcoming transition milestones will be explored on LIBOR discontinuation.

It is critical that parties involved in LIBOR-based bank loan/direct purchase bond financings, or other financings tied to LIBOR (or including alternative interest modes based on LIBOR), anticipate the impacts of the phaseout and plan accordingly.
