Liberum; Underlying income approaching dividend target Event P2P Global Investments' NAV per share at 31 August 2018 was 953.9p, reflecting a 0.50% NAV total return in the month. YTD NAV total return is 2.7% (0.1% after the impact of IFRS 9). We estimate share buybacks added 4 bps to August's performance. Liberum view P2PGI's underlying income returns have improved steadily in 2018. We estimate an underlying income return of 0.49% in the month after adjusting for buybacks (4bps) and ongoing amortisation legacy costs (-3bps per month). The underlying income returns in July and August have been broadly in line with the level required to meet a 15p dividend. Returns should continue to improve as the legacy portfolio winds down (30% of portfolio at June 2018) resulting in an increased dividend. We believe should help to drive a re-rating form the current -18.8% discount (15p target quarterly dividend implies 7.7% dividend yield).

Liberum Progressing portfolio transition Event As previously announced, P2P Global Investments' NAV at 30 June 2018 was 956.2p per share (IFRS 9 basis). NAV total return in H1 2018 was 1.7% (-0.9% after IFRS 9 adjustments). Returns in the period have been impacted by weak performance in legacy UK consumer assets, a writedown in the URICA equity investment (0.74% of NAV) and other legacy items. Management report progress in transitioning the portfolio. The proportion of the portfolio in continuing investments has risen from 52% at December 2017 to 70% at 30 June 2018. The remaining legacy portfolio continues to drag on returns although the impact on NAV is declining as the company reallocates capital into new investments. The continuing portfolio comprises real estate loans (45%), SME loans (42%) and consumer (13%). The continuing portfolio has generated an annualised net yield of 9.3% over the past six months. This comprises a gross yield of 10.8% and bad debt expense of 1.5%. This compares to a 2.4% net yield for the run-off portfolio (8.0% net yield and 5.6% bad debt expense). Liberum view The manager is making steady progress with the portfolio positioning as demonstrated by the improved underlying NAV return in recent months. The annualised NAV returns excluding buybacks and one-off items in June and July were 5.3% and 5.5%, respectively. This is below the target set in November 2017 of a covered 15p dividend by the end of Q2 2018. The URICA write-off and the potential for volatility in the legacy investments is unhelpful but the potential impact is steadily declining as the company recycles capital into new loans. The shares trade on a -18.4% discount to NAV and we believe the prospective 7.7% dividend yield (based on 15p quarterly dividend) should help to deliver a re-rating.

Liberum; Event NAV per share at 31 July 2018 was 961.12p, representing a monthly NAV total retun of 0.52%. We estimate share buybacks added 5 bps to the NAV return in the month. Liberum view July was the best month so far this year in terms of performance. YTD, NAV total return is c.2.2%. Based on information from June, we would expect that the transitioning of the portfolio to more attractive asset classes, reducing the exposure to the low yielding and volatile legacy assets has continued. The shares are currently trading at -19.4% discount to NAV.

Liberum; Event P2P GI's NAV per share at 30 June 2018 was 956.2p, representing a total return of -0.14% in the month (IFRS 9 basis). The result for the month has been significantly impacted by the previously announced write down of the £5.5m URICA Limited equity position following the business being placed into provisional liquidation on 20th July 2018. Share buybacks during the month contributed 0.09% to the NAV return. YTD June 2018 NAV total return was 1.7%. The adverse performance versus expectations has been driven by lower returns on the legacy assets with UK consumer driving the majority of the variance. The legacy portfolio continues to run off and was down to 30% in June 2018 (48% in December 2017). The overall drag on the company’s profitability, whilst still material, is reducing month on month and the Manager continues to optimise performance through improving servicing and tactically disposing of loans where possible. At the end of June, 70% of the portfolio was in continuing assets up from 52% at the end of 2017. This portfolio is delivering 9.2% net yield which is ahead of target. The continuing portfolio consists of SME loans 42%, real estate 45%, and consumer 13%. The majority of the consumer loan exposure is made up of structured loans where the originator has first loss equity ahead of the company's exposure and consists of UK, European, US and Australasian exposure. The equity portfolio of £41m consists of 14 positions. Many of the positions are in small and early stage businesses and the Manager would expect some volatility through the investment period. Liberum view While the portfolio of continuing assets performs well ahead of target, the legacy portfolio continues to be a drag on the overall performance with returns significantly below target. The Manager has accelerated the run-off and strong progress has been made in transitioning the portfolio to more attractive asset classes, reducing the exposure to the low yielding and volatile legacy assets. P2P GI is trading at a -15.6% discount to NAV.

Liberum; Event URICA Limited, a P2P Global Investments (the company) underlying investment which represented 0.74% of its May 2018 NAV (c. £5.5m carrying value) was placed into provisional liquidation on 20 July 2018. P2P Global Investments has concluded that its equity investment in URICA Limited should be written off. P2P Global Investments has provided a revolving credit facility to URICA Europe Limited for which URICA Limited acts as servicer. The outstanding exposure is c£24.4m. URICA Europe Limited has not been placed into administration, and is not part of the URICA Limited group and its ownership of receivables is bankruptcy remote from the insolvency estate of URICA Limited. New funding under the revolving credit facility has been restricted and the company is working with key contacts within URICA Limited and other counterparties to ensure that the receivables owned by URICA Europe Limited continue to be serviced and managed effectively. The receivables are short term in nature and also benefit from credit insurance. Liberum view P2P Global Investments' last published NAV per share was 957.57p as at 31 May 2018 (incl. IFRS 9). The carrying value of URICA Limited represented 7.1p per share (or 0.74% of NAV). P2P Global Investments will publish its monthly NAV for June 2018 on or around 26 July 2018. The 0.74% impairment is the total impairment being made at this time as a result of the liquidation. P2P Global Investments is trading at -13.3% discount to NAV, compared to a peer group average discount of -3.2%.

Liberum P2P Global Investments (Mkt Cap £622m) Low cost of debt on new securitisation Event Further to last week's announcement, P2P Global Investments has completed the securitisation of a portfolio of UK SME loans originated by Funding Circle. The senior tranche represented 62% of the overall structure and was awarded a Aa3 rating by Moody's. The spread on the senior tranche was 75bps. Investors in the securitisation included the European Investment Fund (part of the European Investment Bank) and KfW, the German development bank. The transaction is backed by 4,007 loans with a total remaining balance of £206.6m (original balance £255.6m). The weighted average interest rate on the portfolio is 10.0% and the average remaining balance is £52k. The weighted average seasoning of the loans is 8.6 months and the average remaining term is 44.7 months. Liberum view The weighted average spread on the overall securitisation has not been revealed yet but it should help to lower P2PGI's cost of funding (1.9% average spread at 31 December 2017). In addition, it broadens the company's sources of funding. The shares currently trade on a -17.3% discount to NAV. Specialist Finance

Hi Yieldsearch thanks for that background. I'm still not sure I follow how it works. What you are describing is say P2P buying £10m of 10% yielding loans, and then raising finance (borrowing money) @ 4% from somewhere to fund £9.5m of the assets. So leveraging themselves up 20x. But a securitisation is where you package and sell the loans on to other investors, who in return get the income from the 10% yielding assets? So who will actually own the £10m of loans in this case (and were they already on p2p books), who is borrowing the funds at libor + x and from where, what does it mean when it says P2P will retain 5% of the structure?

never a daft question, and hope that my answer is making sense: basically providing high leverage. say you have a pool of loans yielding 10%. Issuance of securitisation (for 95% of the loan) is costing 4% ( libor +some margin.. i dont have the figures). So the 95 is costing 4% (3.8), the assets (100) is generating 10 (10pc of 100), leaving 6.2 for the holder of 5% (10-3.8=6.2). So the retention holder could have an asset (5) generating 6.2 per year (much larger running yield than the original 10pc). Above very approximate and just one dummy example, not linked to the above real life securitisation, please do not assume that they can make such a high return as you have to factor cost of issuance, margin on the securitisation and running costs etc.. the downside is that if the underlying pool has more than 5% losses, the p2p exposure could be wiped out (again not taking into account features protecting the 5%, such as provisionning of losses through interest margin etc..) diversifying: as it is using the capital market, it is not using bank funding so could free up available bank line. but again i don't have the details

Daft question, could somebody explain how these securitisations work? if P2P is packaging loans (it already owns?) and sells them off to investors, how does this benefit P2P? What does it have to do with diversifying P2P's source of funding?

Liberum; P2P Global Investments (Mkt Cap £619m) Potential securitisation of Funding Circle loans Event Bloomberg reports indicate that P2P Global Investments is seeking to arrange a new securitisation backed by UK SME loans originated through the Funding Circle platform. This follows the company's securitisation of Zopa loans in Q4 2017. The transaction is backed by 4,007 loans with a total remaining balance of £206.6m (original balance £255.6m). The weighted average interest rate on the portfolio is 10.0% and the average remaining balance is £52k. The weighted average seasoning of the loans is 8.6 months and the average remaining term is 44.7 months. P2P GI would retain at least 5% of the structure in order to comply with risk retention requirements Liberum view Last year's Zopa transaction priced attractively with a weighted average cost of 1-month Libor +99bps and we would expect the proposed Funding Circle transaction will also help to diversify the source of funding and lower the company's existing cost of debt. UK SME loans accounted for 9.2% of NAV in February. The fund continues to reposition the portfolio and is targeting a covered 15p quarterly dividend by the end of Q2 2018 (implied 7.5% dividend yield). The shares currently trade on a 16.6% discount to NAV.

It fell from a significant premium to NAV to a 16% discount on the back of concerns relating to some of its loans and expensive fees. Although recent performance has been disappointing, the Winterflood team initiated a notional position in the fund because they believe a turnaround is under way. Last year the portfolio was repositioned, with exposure to US and UK credit significantly reduced. ‘While it is still not particularly cheap, the fund’s fee structure has also been amended,’ Winterflood said. ‘Taking all this into account, and with its shares trading at a 16% discount to NAV and offering a prospective yield of 7.3%, we think that the fund now represents one of the debt sector’s more compelling value opportunities.’

Liberum; Strategy update Event P2P Global Investments' strategy update presentation highlights that the manager expects to cover a dividend of at least 15p per quarter by the end of Q2 2018. The quarterly dividend will be at least 12p per share in the intervening period. The company has recently accelerated the portfolio repositioning with the sale of a portion of its US consumer exposure. The transaction represented a reduction in company's net exposure to US consumer loans of £37m (4.6% of NAV). Gross exposure decreased by £167m with a consequent reduction in leverage and hedging requirements. The portfolio sale was the main reason for the -1.0% NAV decline during October. Two-thirds of the credit assets are now at or exceeding return targets. The company intends to increase its exposure to specialist and secured assets and has £400m pipeline of new investments with existing and new partners. Secured assets are expected to be 39% by Q2 2018 vs. 25% currently.

P2P Global Investments (P2P) Numis Securities believes there could be a pick-up in P2P Global Investments’ sorry share price. The largest of the listed funds in the direct lending sub-sector, P2P lost investors’ confidence when currency hedging costs and rising delinquencies on its high US consumer exposure meant it failed to hit its annual return target of 6-8%. Earlier this year, its manager merged with Pollen Capital, the manager of its more successful and UK-focused rival Honeycomb (HONY). With the discount on the shares having widened to 22% - giving it a Z-score of 1.1% - and a strategy update expected early next month, Numis analyst Sam Murphy is cautiously optimistic, writing this week that: ‘We now see only modest downside, with the potential for the discount to narrow if returns start to pick-up or if the November strategy update provides an improved outlook. The fund is paying quarterly dividends at a rate of 12p, equivalent to 48p pa and a 6.1% yield on the current share price. We expect that over time P2P’s portfolio will look a lot more like Honeycomb IT, which is also managed by Pollen Street. ‘This raises potential for a merger in future, in our view, and it is notable that Invesco Asset Management is the largest shareholder in both funds,’ he said.

Yes the current portfolio is clearly full of junk but the new managers brought in seem to have expertise in this area and the Honeycomb trust has performed well. It's just a question of how long it will take to reposition the fund, given its size I suspect quite a long time.

So 0.14% return on the month, which is like 1.5% return per annum without buybacks. Comparable to a regular high interest savings account, but exposed to more credit risk and leverage, and paying a performance fee on top. They really need to wind this down and return funds to investors. Ideally before the next recession.

Liberum; Event NAV per share at 30 September was 1002.2p which represents an increase of 0.19% in the month of which share buybacks added 0.05%. NAV return in Q3 was 0.77% and in 2017 to date is 3.1%. Exposure to US consumer loans has reduced to 34% of NAV (June 2017: 39%). Hurricanes in the quarter impacted the US portfolio by increasing delinquencies in affected states such as Texas and Florida. The corporate debt facility has increased from £150m to £200m as the company is seeking to move away from US Dollar financing. P2P GI is also seeking to arrange a securitisation of Zopa loans which should help to reduce the cost of funding. The transaction is backed by 31,153 Zopa loans with a total outstanding balance of £209m, which represents the majority of the company's existing UK consumer loan exposure (20% of NAV at 30 September 2017) An unchanged dividend of 12p has been declared for Q3. 5.7p of this was covered by income and 6.3p is from the special distributable reserve of which 2.1p relates to share buybacks. Liberum view P2PGI's returns remain subdued (12-month NAV return of 3.7%) which has led to the discount widening to -21% in recent months. In terms of credit performance, the 6-month rolling annualised impairment rate has declined slightly in the quarter but remains high at c.4.5%. The focus will now shift to the strategy update which is due in early November as investors seek clarity on how the portfolio will change over the next 12-18 months.

So P2P global is packaging up a group of loans that us shareholders are currently receiving income from, and sells them on to other investors (whilst retaining a small portion). How does that benefit current shareholders as surely P2P now has to find other assets to invest in, and what does it mean reduces P2P costs of funding?

Liberum; P2P Global Investments (Mkt Cap £634m) Potential securitisation of Zopa loans Event Trade press reports indicate that P2P Global Investments is arranging a new securitisation backed by Zopa loans. This would be the company's second securitisation of Zopa loans following a similar transaction last year. The transaction is backed by 31,153 Zopa loans with a total outstanding balance of £209m, which represents the majority of the company's existing UK consumer loan exposure (20% of NAV at 31 August 2017). The average balance of the loans is £6,708. The weighted average age of the loans is 4.5 months and the average remaining term is 45.7 months. The average interest rate is 7.2%. According to a Moody’s report 88% of borrowers are in full time employment and the loans are mainly used to finance cars (30.8%), debt consolidation (38.0%) and home improvements (20.9%). The securitisation is called Marketplace Originated Consumer Assets 2017-1. Moody's main model assumptions are 7.0% lifetime defaults with 10% recoveries. The most senior tranche has been given a provisional rating of Aa3. P2P GI would hold at least 5% of the structure in order to comply with risk retention requirements. Liberum view Last year's transaction priced attractively with a weighted average cost of 1-month Libor +168bps and we would expect the proposed transaction will also help to reduce the company's existing cost of debt. It would also release a significant amount of capital back to the company as it continues to reposition the portfolio towards specialist assets. The shares currently trade on a 22.5% discount to NAV.
