Excerpt from "The Acquisition and Leveraged Finance Review - Fifth Edition - Chapter 6: Canada":
Leveraged lending is frequently used by Canadian borrowers to fund a number of activities, including acquisitions, capital expenditures, dividend recapitalisations, refinancings of existing debt and ongoing operations. Recent acquisition activity in Canada has been relatively strong, and leveraged loans continue to be an important source of capital for many Canadian acquisitions. Continuing low interest rates, substantial liquidity in the North American market and the easing of credit terms have contributed to the attractiveness of leveraged loans for Canadian borrowers.
