2016 YTD Fund raising review – Topping up
05 Oct 16
Secondary issuance has dominated in 2016. 3i Infrastructure (3IN) led with a monster £385m raise (target: £350m) in May. At a sector level, infrastructure (£700m), property (£500m, mostly pre-Brexit vote), and renewables (£340m) tapped heavily in Q2 & Q3 2016. The IPO market remains quiet with only one primary launch in 2016; Hadrian’s Wall Secured Investments (HWSL) raised £80m for secured lending to SMEs including equipment finance, property development, and commercial loans. We also note that six funds have repurchased more than £50m of stock YTD.
Third Quarter of 2016
01 Oct 16
Q3 saw the market adapt to life post the UK’s EU referendum. Sterling continued to fall but most stock markets stabilised and discounts narrowed across most sectors. While the US election is dominating headlines, it does not seem to be having much impact on markets so far.
Good things in small packages
11 Jul 16
DRUM Income Plus REIT (DRIP) is focused on acquiring properties that do not suit the portfolios of the large institutional and overseas buyers that are targeting larger lot sizes. We think that, by focusing on a less crowded market, DRIP is able to achieve a yield advantage over other property investment companies. DRIP is itself small, but has ambitions to grow and further diversify its share register and portfolio. The managers have identified a pipeline of potential investments and therefore DRIP should be able to expand gradually without cash drag having much impact on returns.

Mobilising the strategy
08 Dec 16
PCF has reported a good set of FY16 figures this morning. Pro forma 12 month adjusted pre-tax profit increased 38% YoY to £4.0m (FY15: £2.9m), 5% ahead of our estimate of £3.8m. Fully diluted return on equity remained broadly stable YoY at 13% but beat our forecast of 12.6%, driven by good loan book growth, up 14% YoY to £122m. Given the strength of the results the board has reinstated a dividend of 0.1p per share. Following Tuesday’s announcement of the approval of a banking licence, we believe that the group now has the capacity to accelerate its growth prospects. While the shares trade at 12.0x earnings and 2.0x reported book value, we do not believe this valuation captures the growth potential of the business.
VPC Speciality Lending Investments PLC – sticking to your knitting pays dividends
05 Dec 16
A 25% discount on a dividend paying vehicle suggests either (a) lack of belief in the NAV, (b) lack of belief in the dividend, (c) concerns over future delivery, (d) a shareholder’s base not normally exposure to “closed end structures” or (e) some combination of (a) to (d). We had a first meeting with the management team and London representative of VPC Speciality Lending to try to better understand why the share price had fallen quite so much.
Small Cap Breakfast

Creo Medical group—Schedule 1 update.. £20m raise. Expected market cap £61.2m, admission expected 9 December. ECSC—Schedule 1 from provider of cyber security services. Raising £5m. Vendor sale £0.8m. Target date 14 Dec. Expected market cap £15m. RM Secured Direct Lending - The secured direct lending fund intends to float on the Main Market on 15 December raising up to £100m
Better Capital – A tale of two funds
05 Dec 16
Our gut feel on the results is that BCAP’s Gardner disposal feels viable (albeit as a late Q1 transaction). Post Gardner, the exit profile for BCAP’s portfolio is slanted towards the years 2018/19 and not earlier; we view the market’s current pricing as cautious (14% disc to our estimate of FV). In contrast, BC12’s more consumer facing portfolio remains a work in progress and may well offer further disappointment before turning a corner; the market valuation (51% discount to NAV) is cautious but probably fair given the difficulties.
Panmure Morning Note 07-12-2016
07 Dec 16
PCF today announces that it has succeeded in achieving once its major strategic goals by being granted a UK banking licence. In line with prior guidance, the company aims to begin taking deposits in summer 2017 and will initially focus on lending to its core markets in consumer motor finance and SME asset finance. As well as supporting growth in the loan book, the banking licence will both diversify and reduce the cost of its funding base. More details are expected as part of the FY16 results tomorrow.
Meeting near-term headwinds
06 Dec 16
In its trading update IFG reported that performance has been in line with management expectations. The cooling effect of market uncertainty on growth in James Hay and financial advice client numbers, together with the impact of low interest rates, remain a near-term head wind for revenues. Even so, with Saunderson House continuing to increase profits, IFG expects to match 2015 earnings. The long-term growth opportunity presented by an ageing population and pension freedoms remains in place and to address this IFG is continuing investment to enhance its service and increase operational gearing.
