INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Credit Sleeve'

This type of working capital loan is most often found within the energy industry, where sleeves are backed by physical energy assets and carry certain cash flow requirements for the sleeve provider to continue to operate. Credit sleeves are often set up when a company has seen its credit quality decline and access to traditional forms of debt financing has run dry.
