Default, Transition, and Recovery: Distressed Exchanges Lead Corporate Defaults So Far In 2021


Default, Transition, and Recovery: Default Rates Continue To Climb As Weakest Links Remain Elevated

The number of global weakest links decreased to 538 on Oct. 21 from 572 as of our last report. (Weakest links are issuers rated 'B-' or lower by S&P Global Ratings with negative outlooks or ratings on CreditWatch with negative implications.) The decline owes to a few factors, including issuers defaulting, as well as the effect of compressing spreads on entities that need liquidity.

Still, the number of weakest links across regions, except Latin America, remains higher than the pre-pandemic levels, which has contributed to a sharp rise in default rates globally (see charts 1 and 2). While government and central bank efforts to curb the economic impact of COVID-19 have been considerable, infection rates in the U.S. and Europe have been rising recently, risking additional lockdowns that may result in more economic hardship for many issuers. However, announcements of at least one potentially successful vaccine have helped mute the impact of these rising risks on bond prices.

As weakest links typically default at a rate 8x that of speculative-grade companies, we expect the number of defaults to continue to rise as companies remain under significant revenue and earnings pressures triggered by the economic recession and global pandemic. So far in 2020, most defaults were due to missed interest or principal payments, as lower-rated issuers are falling short of their debt obligations. However, that dynamic is changing as the majority of defaults in October have been the result of distressed exchanges as companies look for ways to avoid bankruptcy (see "Oil And Gas Leads 2020 Global Corporate Defaults, Reflecting Sector Challenges," Nov. 20, 2020).

Rises In Weakest Links Have Predominately Come From A Small Number Of Sectors

Default risk has been uneven across sectors, and we think this will continue as we head into 2021. The consumer service, leisure, transportation, capital goods, and oil and gas sectors have been hardest hit by the global pandemic and, therefore, lead both the weakest links and default tallies so far in 2020. These sectors together account for nearly half of all weakest links.

Media and entertainment (which includes lodging and leisure) had the most additions to this month's weakest links tally, with nine, bringing its overall sector total to 104 weakest links. However, the sector has a lower speculative-grade default rate in 2020 than it did during the global financial crisis, when it reached a record high of 22% (see chart 3). This is largely due to an increase in speculative-grade issuers since the financial crisis as more aggressive financial policies and investors' risk appetite helped lead to a rise in the number of low-rated issuers globally.

Nonetheless, the sector has had 29 defaults so far in 2020, 90% of which came from the 'CCC+ and below rating categories. As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase in both the U.S. and Europe, industries that are most at risk for default, with the greatest number of weakest links in the media and entertainment sector, include casinos and gaming, lodging, resorts and cruise lines, and other leisure facilities.
