Borrowing and lending - documentation - finance party default.

The concept of an impaired agent bank is an element of borrowing and lending agreements, designed for the protection of the borrower and other lenders under the agreement.

It includes situations in which the agent bank fails to honour its commitment to make a payment under borrowing documentation, becomes insolvent, or is a defaulting lender.

When an agent becomes an impaired agent under the borrowing documentation, the borrower and majority lenders enjoy additional rights to protect their positions.

Impaired agent provisions are a part of Lehman provisions.
