speedsgh: Net Asset Value and Investment Update - HTTPS:// GCP Asset Backed, which invests in asset backed loans, announces that, as at 30 September 2021, the unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per ordinary share of the Company (including current period revenue) is 98.94 pence per share. NAV The NAV performance for the 3 month period is a negative movement of 3.77 pence per share after the payment of dividends, a decrease of 3.67 per cent. The negative NAV performance for the period was driven by the write-down of the Co-living Group loan as announced on 13 September 2021. The rest of the Company's investments continued to perform as expected in the period to 30 September 2021, with all principal and interest payments received as anticipated[1]. Portfolio Update The only portfolio assets that remain categorised as high risk are the Co-living Group loan and the two community facility loans, representing an aggregate 5.84% of the total portfolio value. Co-living Further to the announcements of 13 September and 16 September, we are pleased to report that the credit bid is proceeding as planned. The first two assets have transferred to the acquisition vehicle, and it is anticipated that the remaining four assets will transfer over the coming weeks. The negative NAV movement of 3.77p is greater than the 3.69p reduction announced on 13 September as a result of no income being recognised on the entirety of the loan in the period. Occupancy across the operating assets was strong in the period. The UK assets are all at or above 90% in occupancy and the US operating asset reported its strongest month of the year in September. The lenders to the Co-living Group are holding discussions with several parties who are interested in buying assets which are not part of the credit bid and hope to transact on a number of these in the coming weeks. The Investment Manager continues to look to realise value across all elements of the Co-living Group and continues to believe there is additional value to be found from these other assets. We are seeking to remain conservative and will only move the valuation upwards as these sums are realised, though it should be noted that current discussions would not lead to a material movement in the Company's NAV. Community Facility The Company has provided loans to two community facilities. These facilities house a variety of small businesses including bars, food outlets, co-working and studio space. A sale process was commenced in the period for the two community assets, with the appointment of a preferred bidder occurring at the end of September. It is expected that the transaction will complete before the end of October. We do not expect a reduction in the carrying value of these loans as a result of the transaction and believe that the preferred bidder will be able to fully realise the value of the facilities. General The portfolio continues to rotate well with £36.8m repaid and £16.6m deployed in the period. The Investment Manager continues to target loans to borrowers it already knows and in sectors that have performed well for the Company. The Company's interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2021 were released on 28 September 2021. Dividends On 22 July 2021, the Company declared a quarterly dividend in respect of the period from 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021 of 1.575p per share, which was paid on 27 August 2021. Outlook Whilst endeavouring to recover value from the Co-living Group loan has been a primary focus for the Investment Manager over the period, we remain encouraged by the continued performance and strong cash generation of the wider portfolio. We continue to have access to funds as loans repay, including £20m which has been repaid post period end and we have a pipeline of opportunities which is in excess of our available capital. The Investment Manager will be holding a webinar on 3 November 2021 at 10am to provide more detail on the portfolio. For any investor interested in joining, please e-mail
speedsgh: GCP Asset Backed Income hurt by Co-living loan writedown - HTTPS:// ... GABI was a small player in a syndicate of lenders to Co-living, leading Liberum analyst Conor Finn to say it illustrated ‘some of the risks in minority lending investments, particularly the lack of control in distressed situations.’ ‘The scale of the writedown is significant given the LTV [loan to value] of the position was less than 65% at March 2021,’ Finn said, meaning there was a healthy cushion of equity to protect the lender. Stifel analyst Iain Scouller cut his ‘positive’ rating to ‘neutral’ saying there was a risk the shares could drop to a discount to NAV. ‘We are disappointed to see this writedown especially given what had been the improving backdrop and comments from the company regarding its high-risk loans. While no portfolio is immune to problems, the size of the writedown – around 54% as the loan was 6.8% of the portfolio 30 June – is significant and means that something has clearly changed quite materially in the third quarter,’ Scouller said. Shares in GABI have dropped from 104.5p to 101p since the announcement on Monday, but remain on a small premium to the reduced NAV following Conlon’s insistence that no ‘read-across should be made as a result of the writedown in the value of the Co-living Group loan to the rest of the company’s portfolio which continues to perform as expected.’ Speaking at an Association of Investment Companies event yesterday, Gravis associate director Joanne Fisk, who works with Conlon on GAVI, said the fund remained committed to funding sustainable borrowers. ‘Core to the sustainable theme is looking for assets that meet a structural demand in society or serve a purpose as we think that underpins the value of the investment we are making,’ she said. While the Co-living loan has been painful, GABI remains keen on housing, lending £5m earlier this year to Apex Airspace, whose modular pods on top of flat-roof buildings are designed to solving the property shortage. Fisk said Apex had ‘a borrower track record’ and is working on an affordable homes project with the Greater London Authority and local councils. ‘It is improving and building on existing housing stock providing affordable homes in London,’ she said. Within social infrastructure, GABI is also a lender to four care homes. Fisk hoped to add to the exposure in ‘areas of undersupply when there is a need for elderly and vulnerable care’. ‘These assets have seen really strong growth in valuations,’ she said. Fisk said the managers of the four homes ‘impressed through Covid-19 by taking steps early on, maintaining occupation, and gaining new contracts’, despite the sector being hit hard by the pandemic. ‘This is an area we are interested in. We are looking at other projects and are hoping to close soon.’
speedsgh: Extension to term of Revolving Credit Facility - HTTPS:// On 10 July 2020, GCP Asset Backed, which invests in asset backed loans, announced that it had exercised a 12-month extension option in respect of its £50 million Revolving Credit Facility ("RCF") with Royal Bank of Scotland International Limited (the "lender"), maturing in August 2021. The Company is pleased to announce that the RCF has been extended by 24-months on the same terms as the previous facility. An additional 12-month extension option has also been included to be approved at the lender's discretion upon expiration in August 2023. The Company's Investment Manager, Gravis Capital Management Limited, considers having continued access to the revolving credit facility an essential tool to allow the Company to access attractive investment opportunities. As at the date of this announcement, the facility is drawn by £20.2 million.
jonathan49: Thanks appollocreed1 - I am a long term holder of the credit ITs for reasons of diversification and total return (not driven by need for income) As it happens I also held SQN and GCP infra. I sold out of GCP infra because the dependence on power prices was much too great for my liking. There is a tight linkage and my view is that power prices need to fall in the long term because much more electricity will need to be used and it will need to be affordable. Plus since the assets are "wasting" (being amortised away to nothing) there is a big question about whether they are reinvesting enough and have good enough opportunities in the long term to maintain the NAV. The power price aspect is evidenced that some of the GCP infra loans are already valued below cost due to the power price having fallen. I also sold out of TRIG at a nice profit for the same reason. Gore Street may be different because it is not power price dependant as I understand it. I got SQN C shares on at about 80p and have held on - now hopeful that I will get most of my money back as it winds up. SQN management was a learning experience to be very careful that any Boutique manager really has the market network, contacts and access to source good deals with responsible sponsors who have meaningful equity in the deal deep pockets. None of these existed with SQN, they were just lending to anyone who came along and wanted money. Gravis does look better than that but they are still a boutique manager and I wonder about their market access compared to the big boys. My preferred ITs for credit are now CCPG/NCHY/RECI/MGCI/TFIF/NBMI/BIPS/HDIV. I have equal weight of all those plus GABI.
jonathan49: Did anyone else listen to this presentation? There is one large mezzanine loan to a Co living project which appears to be taking a substantial loss. The loan has been marked down to £32.8M from £36.4M. The project is evidently still perfectly viable and rents are being received OK but a covenant had been broken for the senior loan. The senior lender instructed a sale process. Current project value means that senior loan can be repaid in full be the Mez loan will take a £4M loss even though the income is still there to pay all interest payments and the project value will likely recover in due course. It was a very unclear explanation but left me with the impression that Gravis had not done a good job in structuring the terms of the GABI mez loan in that they had no say in the sale or refinancing. I am now wondering whether Gravis has enough expertise in order to get appropriate terms for the types of loans being made by GABI. Any comments or insights would be appreciated.
