Movie Gallery in credit event auction

The auction enabled dealers to cash-settle loan credit default swap (LCDS) contracts and LCDX index trades at the final auction price. It was the first of its kind in the loan derivatives market, according to administrators Creditex and Markit.

The company failed to make a September 10 interest payment on its first-lien loan, triggering a ‘failure to pay’ credit event on loan CDS contracts referencing the company. The company was also a constituent of the LCDX, a credit default swap index referencing US leveraged loans.

Bank of America, Bear Stearns, Citibank, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and UBS all participated in the auction by submitting bids, physical settlement requests and limit orders.
