Liberum; Event Volta Finance and Marble Point Loan Financing have both reported positive NAV updates for May 2018: Volta's NAV per share rose by 2.4% to €8.45 at 31 May 2018 (April 2018: €8.25). US Dollar strength added 1.2% to NAV performance in the month. Portfolio gains were driven by CLO debt investments (+1.3%) and bank balance sheet transactions (+1.9%). The company has provided additional disclosure on its exposure to Italian investments (Italian companies account for less than 2.5% of the company's European CLO investments). The discount to NAV has steadily widened over the past year and now stands at -17.2%. The average discount for the CLO fund peer group is -3.1%. Marble Point Loan Financing generated a 0.7% NAV gain in the month to $0.984 per share. The company believes it is on track to achieve the targeted 10% dividend in year two. The manager reports a healthy environment for CLO issuance with $54 billion of new CLOs issued to date in 2018. We note reports of a slight widening in AAA CLO spreads due to the high level of new issues coming to market. The stock trades on a 4.7% premium to NAV.
Hi Rambutan2, tks for setting up this thread, how do you compare each of these debt funds? I am long VTA only, really because the fund is managed by a large asset manager (Axa). I never heard of Marble Point, i guess based in the USA?

Out today: The Board of Directors (the "Board") of Marble Point Loan Financing Limited (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2017 have been published today and are available on the Company's website (see header above). During the full year 2017, the Company was a private unlisted investment vehicle whose investments were managed by Marble Point Credit Management LLC, the Company's investment manager. Although the Company was a private vehicle during this period, the Board of the Company is committed to providing meaningful information to our shareholders regarding the Company and its operations for the most recently completed fiscal year. 2017 Highlights and 2018 Update (YTD) -- In 2017, as a private unlisted investment vehicle, the Company increased its net assets from US$10.2 million to US$165.1 million and net asset value ("NAV") per share increased 20.39% from US$1.03 to US$1.24.(1) -- On 9 February 2018, the Company raised US$42.5 million in gross proceeds in its initial public offering ("IPO") at an issue price of US$1.00 per ordinary share (or approximately US$40.5 million in net proceeds) and on 13 February 2018, all of the Company's 205,716,892 ordinary shares were admitted to trading on the Specialist Fund Segment of the London Stock Exchange. -- On 9 April 2018, the Company announced that it had declared a dividend of US$0.0104 per ordinary share payable on 30 April 2018 to shareholders of record on 20 April 2018, representing an annualised dividend in line with the initial targeted dividend of 8% per annum based on the IPO price. -- Market capitalisation (as at 27 April 2018): US$207.6 million (GBP149 million).(1) Active Management of Marble Point CLO Investments In 2017, the CLO market embraced CLO refinancing and reset transactions and "call and roll" transactions, in industry parlance, which effectively make use of a significant portion of an existing CLO's loan assets to recast and renew the CLO's liabilities into a new CLO with updated (often lower) pricing and a new extended maturity. During 2017, there were seven refinancing, reset and "call and roll" transactions involving the Marble Point CLOs held directly or indirectly in the Company's investment portfolio, representing the issuance of approximately US$3.1 billion of CLO debt and equity securities (including newly issued securities). Importantly for the Company, each of these transactions resulted in either (or, in certain instances, both) a reduction of the CLO's weighted average cost of debt or an extension of the CLO's reinvestment period. Extending the reinvestment period allows the collateral managers of the Marble Point CLOs to continue to actively manage the loan portfolio underlying each of these CLOs, thereby positioning the Company, as an investor in the equity securities issued by each of the Marble Point CLOs, to react to and/or benefit from, changing market conditions over time.
Re divs: MPLF expects to declare (it did - see below rns) a dividend of at least $0.01 in early April 2018 for the period 13 February 2018 through 31 March 2018. MPLF also expects to declare a quarterly dividend of $0.02 per share in early July 2018. Dividend for Period 13 February 2018 through 31 March 2018 The Board of Directors of Marble Point Loan Financing Limited ("MPLF") has declared a dividend in respect of the period beginning 13 February 2018 (the date of MPLF's admission to the LSE) through 31 March 2018. This dividend will be payable to MPLF's shareholders of record as follows: Dividend: US$0.0104 per Ordinary Share Ex-Dividend Date: 19 April 2018 Record Date: 20 April 2018 Payment Date: 30 April 2018 This US$0.0104 dividend represents an annualized dividend of 8% based on the IPO price of $1.00 per share.
Worth noting: There are no management fees calculated or payable by MPLF on any of its assets that are invested in other entities managed by Marble Point (such as CLOs) as management fees are payable at the level of such underlying investments. As at 28 February 2018, all of MPLF’s non-cash investments are in such entities. MPLF pays Marble Point a management fee quarterly in arrears in an amount equal to 0.40 per cent. per annum of MPLF’s consolidated total assets, except that such fee is not payable in respect of MPLF’s attributable primary market investments in other entities managed by Marble Point or its affiliates and which otherwise pay management fees to Marble Point or such affiliates. In this respect, Marble Point CLOs generally pay Marble Point collateral managers a management fee of up to 40 basis points per annum of such CLO’s total aggregate principal balance of loans, cash equivalents and other investments as well as an incentive fee of up to 20 per cent. of cash on cash returns after the equity tranche of a CLO has achieved a fully-realized 12 per cent. cash-on-cash internal rate of return. In addition, MPLF Funding Ltd. (the “Funding Subsidiary”) pays Marble Point a management fee of 40 basis points per annum of the average daily aggregate principal balance of loans held by MPLF Funding Ltd.
htTp:// Listed on the SFM on 13/02/18 with 205,716,892 shares, having raised US$42.5 million through a placing of 42,500,001 new ords: Robert Brown, Chairman of Marble Point Loan Financing Limited, said: "We are pleased with the support shown by investors and to achieve the significant milestone of listing the Company. We believe that Marble Point Loan Financing Limited will be the first LSE listed company predominantly focused on US senior secured loans and CLOs that are not managed by third-party CLO collateral managers." Summary: MPLF’s investment objective is to generate stable current income and to grow NAV by earning a ROE in excess of the amount distributed as dividends. MPLF targets a low to mid-teens ROE over the long term. MPLF seeks to achieve its objective primarily through exposure to a diversified portfolio of US$ denominated, broadly syndicated floating rate senior secured corporate loans owned via CLOs and related vehicles managed by Marble Point. Marble Point employs a disciplined methodology that seeks to invest in loans with a meaningful margin of safety based on its assessment of a credit’s loan-to-value ratio. Marble Point acts with strong credit conviction and seeks to build or preserve par (i.e., principal) value in its portfolios through relative value analysis and active management.
