Finance lawyers, I’m a mid level suffering from imposter syndrome. While I generally understand financial covenants, it recently occurred to me that I have no clue WHY certain ones are included, or how they’re calculated. Like, why EBITDA instead of EBITDAX? DSCR or liquidity? Do I even know what I’m talking about?? Any good resources you’d recommend?
