* Loans: Riskier loans test resilience of institutional market By Mariko Ishikawa SYDNEY, May 29 (LPC) - The leveraged finance market Down Under is showing signs of revival, with a couple of event-driven loans injecting life into a market that slowed to a trickle when the coronavirus pandemic hit. Infrastructure services company Ventia and private equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners are leading a US$3.81bn-equivalent pipeline of sizeable term loan Bs, in a test of resilience for institutional loans in Australasia. Ventia is eyeing a A$525m-equivalent (US$340m) dual-currency add-on TLB to fund its acquisition of Broadspectrum, the Australian services unit of Spain's Ferrovial.

Australia’s Village Roadshow Limited has begun exclusive sale talks with BGH, one of two finance companies that at the beginning of the year made takeover approaches to the company. The company also said that keeping its cinemas, film studios and theme parks closed is costing it $6.45 million to $9.68 million (A$10-15 million) per month, […]

Shares in Australia’s Village Roadshow Limited have swung violently in reaction to the company’s warning on the “significant adverse” effect of the coronavirus on its cinema and theme park businesses.On Thursday, shares plunged by more than a third on the Australian Stock Exchange. On Friday, they climbed again by a quarter, to A$1.08, but not enough to recover all their losses. The current stock price also makes it unlikely that either of two tentative takeover bids for Village Roadshow will go ahead in their current form.“Based on international precedent, it is possible that cinemas and / or theme parks may be closed in Australia for a period of time, which would have a serious adverse impact on VRL’s earnings during that time,” said Clark Kirby, CEO, in a corporate statement. He gave no indication of the financial scale of the impact. Cinemas belonging to other chains have already closed, or have cut seating capacity in order to create social distancing, and fewer film releases are being scheduled. Roadshow’s “The Current War” is the only film getting a wide release this week.Australia has now all but sealed its borders to inbound travelers. And Kirby said that Village Roadshow’s theme parks had experienced reduced attendance, especially from international visitors. Forward bookings and sales of annual passes were also declining.The company said that it is taking cost reduction measures and talking to government about “action plans and support.” All employees will be asked to take leave, executive salaries will be cut, and executive bonuses for this year eliminated."The cost reduction measures we are implementing will assist our group earnings and cash flows in challenging circumstances. Most of our earnings are derived from the (Australian) market, which should enable a swift recovery once this terrible pandemic has passed," said Kirby.The company said that it will continue to provide financial information to enable due diligence work by two finance companies, PEP and BGH. In December and January they respectively made indicative bids of A$3.90 and A$4 per share for the company.Village Roadshow Limited owns 31% of the New York-based sales and production company FilmNation, a 24% stake in iPic, the North American cinema chain which went bankrupt in August, and 20% of Village Roadshow Entertainment Group (VREG), a U.S-based content development and production entity.More from Variety * Listen: Cedric the Entertainer on Being Friends With a Trump Supporter, Endorsing Joe Biden and a 'Kings of Comedy' Reunion * What a Delayed Cannes Film Festival Means for World Cinema (Column) * Kylie Jenner Urges Instagram Followers To Self-Quarantine: 'Millennials Are Not Immune To This'

SYDNEY/HONG KONG, March 16 (Reuters) - At least three Australian takeovers potentially worth a combined $1.2 billion are facing lower prices and contract conditions, three sources said, as financial market turmoil sparked by the coronavirus has made it difficult for advisers and bidders to put price tags on deals. The rethinking on price comes as dealmakers had hoped Australia's relatively low number of coronavirus cases would leave it as a dealmaking sweetspot, while so many other Asia-Pacific economies, including China, the region's biggest driver of takeovers, were hit hard by the virus. Some bidders for Australian and New Zealand Banking Group's car lender UDC Finance and AMP's New Zealand wealth management business are lowering their offers and adding conditions due to the COVID-19 market chaos, two sources with knowledge of the deals said.
