Summary of a CREFC After-Work Seminar: The Return of the Public Deal or the Regulator Strikes Back?


What’s with all these public CMBS offerings? And what about all that rule-making? The registered market has otherwise been frozen since the pre-crisis days, and the cloud of heavy-handed regulation looming over our heads is anything but an invitation to dust off your public shelf. Moreover, given that some of those regulations may be (or have been) applied in the 144A context, shouldn’t one be concerned about the private market before we even think about re-entering the public space? And all of that is without even considering the general mid-year market slump. To address these critical questions and the state of the galaxy as we know it, CREFC held an after-work seminar recently, hosted by Dechert, entitled “Review and Outlook for Public CMBS Offerings.”

The seminar consisted of a panel of industry specialists representing issuer, investor and legal perspectives: Paul Vanderslice, Managing Director, Citigroup; our own Rick Jones, Partner, Dechert LLP; Tom Doherty, Executive Director, JP Morgan; Ken Cohen, Managing Director, UBS Investment Bank; Brian Furlong, Managing Director, New York Life; and Bruce Martin, Research Analyst, Fidelity.
