The term “debt maturity wall” has become widely used among restructuring professionals in the post-financial crisis era, referring to the growing wall of staggered corporate debt maturities that collectively built over time as more speculative-grade companies stepped up their borrowing and methodically refinanced debt securities ahead of scheduled maturity.
