jonwig: Tufton Oceanic Assets announces that as at 31 March 2021, the unaudited net asset value ("NAV") was $284.44 million and the unaudited NAV per ordinary share was $1.053. The NAV total return for the quarter was 9.1%. The Company is pleased to announce a dividend of $0.01875 per ordinary share for the quarter ending 31 March 2021. The dividend will be paid on 14 May 2021 to holders of ordinary shares recorded on the register as at close of business on 30 April 2021 with an ex-dividend date of 29 April 2021. The Company continues to target a total annual dividend of $0.075 per share and is forecast to have a dividend cover of c.1.7x over the next 18 months and an average expected charter length of c.2.5 years (EBITDA weighted). The Company's quarterly factsheet as at 31 March 2021 will shortly be available on the Company's website in the Investor Relations section under Company Documents at www.tuftonoceanicassets.com/quarterly-reports .
roman2325: So in the last announcement the company said: "The Company's capital resources are now fully committed. This investment will increase the Company's operating cash flow post fees and post capex to a level that will cover the Company's stated 7% target dividend* by over 1.7x. It will also increase the Company's average charter length." The company 2 seconds later said: *This is a target only and not a profit forecast. There can be no assurance that the target can or will be met and should not be taken as an indication of the Company's expected or actual future results. Accordingly, potential investors should not place any reliance on this target in deciding whether or not to invest in the Company or assume that the Company will make any distributions at all and should decide for themselves whether or not the target dividend yield is reasonable or achievable. The target dividend yield is based on the IPO issue price of US$1.00 per ordinary share. Pleasing to see they read this Bulletin Board ;)
masurenguy: Focusing upon an interesting niche market with potentially an excellent yield ! Earn a steady income from ships Just before Christmas a Guernsey-based fund called Tufton Oceanic Assets (LSE: SHIP) launched on the London Stock Exchange, marking a real first for London – a chance for investors to make an income by renting out ships. Investors have long been able to invest in shipping giants such as Maersk or Hapag-Lloyd. But these are cyclical trading businesses, rather than ones focused on producing a steady dividend stream. In the UK, it has been possible to invest in a few small ship-owning companies under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), but there were no shipping investment trusts. This is a pity, because there’s much to like about the market. Like aeroplanes, ships produce a steady stream of rental or lease payments, and the market in shipping rentals is huge and very liquid, with many reliable, creditworthy customers. On the downside, its cyclical nature means the market is prone to bouts of oversupply, with prices collapsing as a result – as they did for the Baltic Dry index (which charts the cost of transporting raw materials) after 2008. But unlike many other asset-backed markets, grabbing hold of delinquent assets in a slump isn’t hard – repossessions have been going on for hundreds of years, and there is a very liquid market in new rentals for the ship owner. And as with any cyclical market, there’s always the potential for an upturn – indeed, we may be seeing one right now. The Baltic Dry has risen by around 60% over the past five years. The global economy is humming, helped by a strong US and China. Cargo rates have stabilised, and shipyards are relatively less busy – the global order book for new ships is at a 20-year low, and shipyard capacity has shrunk by 16% since 2012. An established player Tufton is an established player in the second-hand ship market, managing around $1.5bn across a variety of funds. It tends to target product tankers, bulk-cargo ships and smaller container ships. The vessels themselves might be anything from five- to 20-years old, trading at between 30% and 70% of their new value, while customers charter them for between two and ten years. As with aeroplanes, sale-and-leaseback deals are common – a big operator sells their new ship to a funding vehicle such as Tufton, then leases it from them. This leaves the finance outfit to deal with the hassle of the final residual value, or resale value. This is where the real profits are made – by buying second-hand ships cheaply, and making sure the residual value is as high as possible. Tufton maintains that now is the right time to buy. Certain types of ship are still quite cheap to buy, but rental rates are rising alongside the economy. This upturn isn’t being swamped (yet) by a sudden spike in new ship construction. Tufton reckons it can pay out 7% per year (5% in the first year), with an overall internal rate of return (a measure of project profitability) – including capital gains – of 12%. Tufton’s existing institutional fund has made a total return of 12.5% since 2015. The risks are clear (which is why the fund is floated on the specialist market, aimed at institutions and sophisticated investors). Shipping is cyclical and, in a downturn, residual values could plunge, and rental yields dry up. The fund is also dollar-denominated, which introduces currency risk. Yet as part of a diversified portfolio, this is an excellent source of alternative income, with real asset backing and steady income streams. https://moneyweek.com/earn-a-steady-income-from-ships/
lord gnome: !FOLLOWFEED Quote (Investors' Chronicle, 29 Dec 2017): Tufton Oceanic Assets (SHIP) has raised $91m, slightly lower than its $100m target, and began trading on the Specialist Fund Segment of the London Stock Exchange on 20 December. The trust is targeting a 12 per cent a year NAV return with a cash distribution of 5 per cent in its first year and 7 per cent thereafter. It will invest in second-hand commercial sea-going vessels spread across the core segments of shipping. "There is currently an attractive opportunity in shipping to buy assets at a significant discount to their depreciated replacement cost and lock in long-term employment producing mid-teen cash yields," says Andrew Hampson, head of asset-backed investments at the trust's manager, Tufton Oceanic. "This is a strategy we've been following with success for the past couple of years and see limited competition due to the lack of capital currently being invested in shipping." Tufton Oceanic has invested over $1bn in shipping assets over the past few years. Company web site: hxxp://www.tuftonoceanicassets.com/
energyi: No surprise that the world is now awash with massive paper trading inflation. An example of this is the new trading in freight derivatives, described in this article (link below) John Banaszkiewicz, managing director of Freight Investor Services, the freight derivatives broker, said: "We have seen a whole new influx of players in the past year. The banks have been setting up proprietary desks and new funds have set up to speculate and make money in this market." Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and Macquarie Bank have set up proprietary trading desks in the past few months. Freight derivatives are forward contracts that were once used almost entirely by ship owners and manufacturing companies to lock in a fee for renting a ship, but now banks and hedge funds are making speculative bets on the market's direction. Indeed as I've been saying, the result of the credit swoon, has been to encourage the gearing up of even more crack up and commodity trading. / Freight Link: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/cc6b596c-7a90-11dc-9bee-0000779fd2ac,Authorised=false.html?_i_location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ft.com%2Fcms%2Fs%2F0%2Fcc6b596c-7a90-11dc-9bee-0000779fd2ac.html%3Fnclick_check%3D1&_i_referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwallstreetexaminer.com%2Fblogs%2Fwinter%2F%3Fp%3D1147&nclick_check=1 China factor helps drive freight derivatives By David Oakley in London Published: October 14 2007 22:03 | Last updated: October 14 2007 22:03 Bankers and hedge fund managers are increasingly turning to the nascent world of freight derivatives, as figures to be published today show the market is on course to hit a record $150bn (£74bn) in value – a 200 per cent increase on last year. With volumes in many other derivatives markets, such as credit default swaps, hit by the liquidity crunch, freight derivatives have, by contrast, experienced a big surge in business as a result of the booming Chinese manufacturing sector, which requires raw materials.

waldron: Alstom NEELIE Kroes, the European Union's competition commissioner, may soon permit herself a small smile of satisfaction. The public reprimand she administered to the French government a couple of months ago over its failure to honour commitments made during the rescue of engineering leviathan Alstom seems poised to deliver its first results. While the Paris government has yet to deliver the opening of the French rail equipment market it promised, Alstom is in advanced talks to sell its generators and controls equipment maker, Alstom Power Conversion (APC). The sale of the business, valued by analysts at around €340m (£235m), will be the first significant disposal in a €1.5bn (£1.03bn) programme pledged by Alstom to win approval for its €3.5bn (£2.4bn) bail-out last July. According to trade unions Amicus in Britain and IG Metal in Germany, talks are under way with a consortium of private equity investors who look set to take over APC, with a target completion date in July. APC is no small morsel. With annual sales of €500m (£342m), it accounts for 3.5% of Alstom's annual sales and employs 3,500 people. The unions are worried. According to Amicus, APC has more than 1,000 British staff at sites in Rugby, Kidsgrove and Glasgow. The British union, like its counterpart in Germany, fears the sale will be followed by restructuring and job losses. Alstom shed 1,200 jobs at its train-building plant in Washwood Heath, Birmingham, last September, as chief executive Patrick Kron began tightening the bolts to squeeze more cash flow out of the business. But for investors and competitors alike, the long-awaited progress on sell-offs is an encouraging sign. The commission approved Alstom's rescue, which involved the French government acquiring a 21% chunk of the enlarged equity as part of the refinancing, only after long drawn-out and often bitter negotiations. To get the deal through, France had to agree to the disposal of businesses peripheral to Alstom's core activities of making and installing turnkey power stations, railways and ships. The company also pledged to form an industrial partnership with a competitor for one of these three core businesses, within four years, and that the state would sell up once that was done. Since then Kron has begun to achieve progress on the slow business of asset sales and cost reductions. Besides putting APC on the auction block, Kron has also launched a restructuring of his Utility Boilers business. The willingness to wield the biggest axe in France, despite complex job-protection law there, is particularly encouraging, although investors need to see many more such announcements to be convinced of Kron's determination to achieve a sustainable turnaround. A new voice on the board may keep Kron from backsliding. In place of the hapless Lord Simpson, who drove Alstom's one-time British partner Marconi into the ground, Kron has co-opted Francis Mer. In a past guise as industrial manager, the former French finance minister turned then French state steel group Usinor into a success and merged it with Spanish and Luxembourg rivals to create Arcelor, now the world's second-largest steel maker and a money-spinner. Investors will hope Mer's experience and good sense can help Kron achieve a comparable miracle at Alstom. http://business.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=351152005
