impaired debt
Also known as "distressed debt".
Debt which the borrower is unlikely to be able to repay in full to the lender on its maturity date as the borrower is in financial trouble or in a form of insolvency. Debt may also be distressed if it is "value impaired" (for example, the borrower may have breached key covenants in the facility agreement). Distressed debt is traded on the secondary market below its face value and is generally traded using LMA standard documents.
It can be contrasted with par debt.
