Summary

Continued strain in the global financial markets played a role in weaker issuance levels in the third quarter of 2012. European leveraged finance issuance (leveraged loans and high yield bonds) declined in Q3'12, with EUR 20.87 billion issued, a 24.9% decrease quarter-over-quarter (q-o-q) but a 2.84% increase year-over-year. (y-o-y). The decrease stems mainly from large declines in leveraged loan issuance, causing a surge in the market share of high yield bond issuance to 74.0%, compared to 36.8% q-o-q and 22.0% y-o-y.
