Commercial bank debt: An assessment of the brady deals

Seven countries (Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nigeria, Philippines, Uruguay and Venezuela) have completed debt and debt service reduction agreements with commercial banks under the Brady plan launched in March 1989. The plan allows banks to choose from a menu of options, which include both debt reduction mechanisms and (usually) a facility for new lending. The principal debt reduction mechanisms are either cash buy-backs of debt - at a discount - or exchange of previous claims for new, "enhanced" instruments involving a cut in either face value (discount bonds) or interest rates (par bonds).
