  1. @Jack – HPS won’t get the interest payments they expected, but they don’t have money out the door anymore. Citi essentially now has a $500 million larger term loan than their original share of the larger deal. That is bad for them because if they company goes bankrupt, which is a real risk, they’re holding a larger share of the default. For example, say they held 50% of a 2 billion loan. Now they’re on the hook for 75% of it.

  2. So did Citi really lose 500 million dollars, or did they just pay back a loan early and will lose the interest they would have earned on the loan but not actually lose 500 million dollars.

    • The way I read it is they have now assumed the risk on the loan when they were just the processor before so it Revlon defaults they are left holding the bag.
