Mezzanine Balance | Paper LBO Model
I am not familiar with mezzanine financing but I am interested in knowing why the outstanding balance in Option B of the model keeps increasing each year (45 in Y1 to 50 in Y5).
I thought it would stay at 45 and I would only pay the 12% interest each year. Clearly there are some payments going on as the EB of senior debt is lower each year compared to option A which means that some cash is going somewhere but at the same time the EB of mezzanine is going up.
