This article focuses on an unexpected development in the U.S. private placement market in the first half of 2005 that is a tumble in cross-border issuance out of Europe, which had been a mainstay of the market for the prior two years. The problem was not one of demand. Anxious American investors have been-and still are-waiting hat in hand for European private placement deals. Rather, the problem has been one of supply, brought about in large part by fierce competition for financing mandates from European lenders.
