Though the impact of the recent plunge in oil prices on the broader S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index is less severe than in the high-yield market, as discussed here, this week was nevertheless particularly brutal for loans in the sector.

As of yesterday’s close, the average bid price of first-lien oil & gas Index loans had tumbled to 90.35% of par, from 94.90 at the Nov. 28 close and down from 96.77 at the end of October, pushing the spread to maturity implied by the average bid to L+731, from L+600 at the end of November. – Kerry Kantin
