That's the conclusion I came to as well - that NAV sensitivity to power prices means that the loans are very risky

Hi, I am new to this thread but have been studying the annual reports today. I can find nothing to describe the terms of the renewables loans made by the fund. They have however published charts to show the relationship of power prices and NAV. I wondered if the discount rate applied to cash flows was the driver of the NAV behaviour but the discount rate actually improved in one quarter (lower rate) but the NAV reduced due to power price effects. So it seems that the equity cushion must be close to nil which would create a very high risk loan or the interest paid on the debt does indeed vary with power prices. If this is the case, then it should have been made much clearer when advertising that this a debt fund. GCP needs to explain what is going on and give us a typical example of the loan terms which are are driving the NAV behaviour.

Williamcooper has made a good point regarding this debt not being plain vanilla. As the debt is very low risk then the sensitivity to power prices should only be borne by the equity stakeholder on nav. These nav write downs simply make no sense if these are plain vanilla fixed loans at 8% over 13 years on average. Can anybody here shine a light on why these nav write downs have been so severe. The Market is confused, I'm confused... I can only assume the interest rises or falls with power prices. ( the inflation protection bit) ?

Both GCP and HICL IPOd at around the same time at £1 - GCP had the higher yield and HICL had produced the higher total return Both had (at IPO) the same level of risk

For me it was the sensitivity to NAV to power prices which suggested that many of their renewable loans were more equity than loans When GCP started it had sub-debt on PFI projects which had very little of an equity cushion but was secured against very safe assets Looks like to keep the yield they've kept equally elevated levels of leverage but against riskier assets I'd rather either be in debt or equity as opposed to super leveraged debt taking a capped return against an equity risk

Poor finish today and against the general trend of Renewables doing well and making substantial gains on price and nav premiums. Still struggling to understand how a portfolio yielding 8% over an average of 13 years can be marked down close to its nominal value of one pound, with no obvious risk, when we are in a negative gilts era. The Market knows best I guess. Anybody else as puzzled as me?

Should add that I had read Speed's excellent link to why the nav has been cut and the future prospect. We may well have got the adjustment on nav finally sorted now for the 30th June 2021.

That's not good news on the nav. Again assets are down more than the dividend paid out...ie. another quarterly loss courtesy of another axe to assets (the income covers dividend otherwise). The axe is falling every quarter now on the balance sheet.

Net Asset Value(s) - HTTPS://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/gcp-infrastructure-inves-GCP/share-news/GCP-Infrastructure-Investments-Ltd-Net-Asset-Value/84851618 GCP Infra, the only UK listed fund focused primarily on investments in UK infrastructure debt, announces that as at close of business on 31 March 2021, the unaudited net asset value per ordinary share of the Company was 100.78 pence, down 1.93 pence from the 31 December 2020 quarter end. The net asset value takes into account cash, other assets, accrued liabilities and expenses and leverage (if any) of the Company attributable to the ordinary share class. The UK Government's announcement, as part of the March budget, to increase the corporation tax rate to 25% from 1 April 2023 has resulted in a reduction of the net asset value of c. 1.71 pence per ordinary share. In calculating the Company's net asset value, the Directors have historically incorporated electricity price forecasts in the valuation process by taking the average of the most recent four quarterly long-term forecasts published by Afry, a leading independent market price forecaster (the "Afry Average"). With effect from (and including) the 31 March 2021 net asset value, the Directors will apply a modified methodology for these purposes, pursuant to which the Company will use published electricity futures market prices for the three-year period starting on the valuation date (the "Futures Prices"). After this three-year period, the Afry Average will continue to be used. The Directors believe Futures Prices are a more appropriate reference for short-term prices that incorporate traded market activity and are more closely aligned to the prices that projects are able to secure for the sale of electricity under their respective power purchase arrangements. In the quarter ending on the 31 March 2021, a reduction in the Afry Average resulted in a decrease of the net asset value of c. 1.57 pence per ordinary share. The incorporation of the Futures Prices as described above resulted in an increase of the net asset value by c. 1.60 pence per ordinary share. The Directors note a range of electricity price forecasts and renewable asset valuation assumptions are used across the renewable infrastructure market. The Directors believe that the Company adopts a conservative position to the valuation of renewable assets and shall continue to do so pursuant to the revised approach regarding electricity power prices. Further detail on the Company's approach to long-term assumptions, and Mazar's independent valuation of its assets, is anticipated to be provided as part of the Company's interim results for the six-months ending 31 March 2021, which are scheduled to be published in June.

Previous RCF arrangements: "The Company has secured revolving credit facilities comprising £115 million with RBSI, ING and NIBC ("Facility A"), and £50 million with RBSI and ING ("Facility B"). The revolving credit facilities are secured against the portfolio of certain underlying assets held by the Company. Facility A and Facility B are repayable in March 2021. Interest on amounts drawn under Facility A and Facility B is charged at LIBOR plus 1.9% per annum. A commitment fee is payable on undrawn amounts of 0.67% on Facility A. No commitment fee is payable on Facility B as this is fixed to be fully drawn for the life of the loan." New RCF arrangements: "GCP Infra, the only UK listed fund focused primarily on investments in UK infrastructure debt, is pleased to announce that on 29 March 2021, the Company entered into new revolving credit arrangements for an aggregate amount of GBP165 million (the "Facilities"), replacing the Company's previous revolving credit facility. The Facilities, which are substantially fully drawn, are split across two tranches; a three year tranche of GBP140m expiring in March 2024 and a three-month tranche of GBP25m expiring in June 2021. It is the Company's intention that the three-month facility will be repaid out of resources that will be available to the Company prior to its expiry. The Facilities have been agreed with three lenders, Royal Bank of Scotland International, Lloyds and Allied Irish Bank. Interest on amounts drawn under the Facilities is charged at SONIA plus 2.0% per annum. A commitment fee of 0.70% per annum is payable on undrawn amounts."
