desapalancar
Explanation:
A highly leveraged company is one with a high proportion of debt capital in relation to share capital. De-levering would be changing this ratio in favour of share capital. My dictionary translates leverage as \"proporción de apalancamiento\" o \"relación de apalancamiento\".
To leverage up is \"apalancar\". To leverage down would be \"desapalancar\". See second ref. for examples.
