As soon as the above step is completed, the arranger then sends out invitations to other banks to participate in the syndication.  Once the participating lenders of the syndication are finalized, confidentiality agreement is signed among the participants. Post execution of the confidentiality agreement, loan documentation is sent to the banks for their review and approval.
