davebowler: Liberum; Small NAV gain expected after Epizyme takeover Mkt Cap £1,053m | Share price $0.94 | Prem/(disc) -5.8% | Div yield 7.4% Event Ipsen has agreed to acquire Epizyme, one of the borrower's in BPCR's portfolio (representing 7.4% of total investments). The transaction is expected to close in Q3 2022. The main focus of the acquisition is Tazverik, a small molecule drug for the treatment of several cancer types. The drug was granted accelerated approval by the US FDA in 2020. Epizyme is a biopharmaceutical company focused on cancer and other diseases through novel epigenetic medicines. Biopharma Credit has a $110m outstanding loan to Epizyme. The total facility to Epizyme is $220m, with the remainder funded by Biopharma Credit Investments V. Depending on the time of the prepayment, BPCR expects to receive between $3m-$7m in prepayment and make-whole fees. Liberum view BPCR's loans are typically structured to provide protection against cash drag from repayments in the form of prepayment fees and make-whole penalties. At 31 May 2022, BPCR had cash of $12m and $138m drawn under its credit facilities. We expect robust performance as 58% of the portfolio benefits from floating rate coupons. LIBOR floors on these loans range from 1-2% and further uplifts in LIBOR from current levels will deliver incremental improvements in returns. The prepayment penalties on the Epizyme loan will add between 0.2%-0.5% to NAV. We note recent weakness in the share price and believe the shares offer considerable downside protection at these levels. The company has a discount control mechanism in place if the discount trades at an average discount in excess of 5% in any three-month rolling period.

gsbmba99: Ipsen offer for Epizyme where BPCR has lent $110m at L+7.75% (2% LIBOR floor) due November 2025 (and Royalty Pharma has a shareholding). Looks like a pre-payment fee of 2% if repaid before November 18 2022 (1% if before November 2023).

riverman77: An absolute key for these debt funds is to be very well diversified. BPCR fails that test for me. As we've seen with other debt funds, if one large loan goes bad then the share price gets absolutely hammered. Debt investing has limited upside but unlimited downside so you really need to be well diversified - ideally no more than a few % in any single position.

davebowler: Liberum; New investments of up to $113m in Evolus and Global Blood Therapeutics Mkt Cap £1,008m | Share price $0.97 | Prem/(disc) -3.0% | Div yield 7.5% Event BioPharma Credit has announced two new investments worth $88m immediately and up to $25m over the next 12 months, alongside the BioPharma Credit Investments V fund. The two new counterparties are Evolus (up to $63m) and Global Blood Therapeutics (up to $50m). BPCR had $248m of cash at 31 October 2021. An agreement has been reached with US-based Evolus for a senior secured loan, with BPCR committing $38m in the first tranche, followed by up to $25m by the end of 2022. Evolus markets Jeuveau, a neurotoxin used for aesthetics. The company reported H1 2021 revenue of $64m and trades at a market cap of $300m. The loan will mature in December 2027, paying interest at 3-month LIBOR plus 8.5% p/a, subject to a 1.0% floor along with an additional fee of 2.25% of the loan amount payable upon funding of the first tranche. The Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT) investment follows an amended loan agreement resulting in BPCR investing an additional $50m in the GBT loan. GBT markets Oxbryta (voxelotor), used to treat sickle cell disease. Revenue over the first nine months of the year was $139m. An original $150m loan was agreed with GBT in December 2019 (BPCR invested $83m). The latest agreement for a third tranche totalling $100m (50:50 split between BPCR and BioPharma-V) will mature in December 2025. In exchange for lengthening the maturity of the first two tranches from December 2025 to December 2027, the syndicate will receive a one-time 1.25% fee.

davebowler: Liberum; Mkt Cap £970m | Share price $0.98 | Prem/(disc) -2.8% | Div yield 7.5% Event BioPharma Credit's NAV per share at 30 June 2021 was 99.8 cents (previously reported), representing a NAV total return of 3.2% over H1. We estimate look-through recurring EPS of 3.7 cents (1.05x dividend cover) and a capital loss of 0.4 cents. The portfolio generated additional liquidity totalling $124m, including pre-payments. This included $97m from payments from the Sebela loan, including a final prepayment premium totalling $1.5m. The final payment was made on 30 June 2021, with BPCR realising an IRR of 11.2% on the investment. During H1, BPCR and BioPharma-V2 agreed a $300m senior secured term loan with LumiraDx, a UK based diagnostics company. LumiraDx is now the second largest loan in the portfolio behind Sarepta ($350m). At the period-end, BPCR's cash balance was $211.3m, representing 15.5% of NAV. Post-period end corporate updates for the BPCR included: Proposed main market listing - an application has been submitted to trade on the premium segment of the LSE. Continuation resolution brought forward - this has been brought forward by a year from the required five year mark to 30 September 2021 and will be held at the forthcoming AGM. RCF refinanced - the committed RCF with JPMorgan Chase has been reduced from $200m to $50m, while allowing for an increase up to $200m. The margin payable under the RCF has reduced from 4.00% to 2.75%. View BPCR has continued to generate a high level of income, despite the impact of cash drag, with credit quality remained materially unaffected by the pandemic. We believe the current 2.8% discount and 7.5% dividend yield are an attractive entry point for a high quality portfolio that has delivered consistent returns since launching in 2017. The recent corporate announcements should positively support sentiment. Life sciences companies will require substantial capital over the coming years, as the number of number of products undergoing clinical trials continues to grow. The manager continues to report a strong pipeline and the focus will be on deploying resources. The loans are typically structured to provide protection against cash drag from repayments in the form of prepayment fees and make-whole penalties. BPCR's origination pipeline is likely to be further supported by the growing need for acquisition financing. Global life sciences M&A volume over H1 totalled $111bn, a 516% increase on H120.
