This will raise money to buy more platforms from SDRL at higher than market prices helping SDRL raise cash indirectly and screwing SDLP holders by over paying for assets that will renew contracts at lower prices in the near future.
I am simply taking a guesstimate of slightly lower NAV for both as well as any other adjustments that could be out there during the cleanup phase before reorg. If there are none, then the price is 69% of book. Several other funds such as SLRC, SUNS, ACSF and others with a portfolio of Senior Secured Debt are now trading down as well, but only about 15% below book, though they pay cash dividends. All are interesting values here since they will see rising income if rates go up (though muted by higher borrowing costs).
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"we agreed to contribute 100% of our equity and equity-related investments in seven portfolio companies (Affordable Care Holding Corp., Avalon Laboratories Holding
Corp., CIBT Investment Holdings, LLC, FAMS Acquisition, Inc., Mirion Technologies, Inc., PHI Acquisitions, Inc. and SMG Holdings, Inc.) to the Fund" so the debt is still on ACAS books. That amounts to 12.6 million. The convertible debt was 59.4 million and get this, the equity was on the books at 5 million.
correction: on the books 12/31/13 at $5myn, on 6-30-14 at 4.5myn. So they thought it had dropped just 3 months ago. Convertible debt dropped from 59.4 myn to 53.5 myn 6-30-14.
We need to see balance sheet for Avalon to determine value of ACEIII interest net of other debt and equity. I agree. Still, why would you discount a company by 10% when you are so close to an exit?
On July 29th were read: Pro forma normalized estimated AFFO run rate as of year-end 2014 of $1.18 - $1.20 per share including 2014 completed and announced transactions. This AFFO estimate does not include any balance sheet acquisitions in excess of our $4.5 billion 2014 guidance, no dispositions, no rent growth or G&A synergies for 2015 and assumes results for Cole Capital consistent with the Company's 2014 projection.
Then today we read: Update on 2014 and Introducing 2015 Earnings Guidance: In light of its pending sale of Cole Capital to RCAP during the fourth quarter of 2014, ARCP has reviewed and revised its 2014 AFFO guidance to a range of $1.06 to $1.08 per share. In addition, ARCP is introducing a 2015 AFFO guidance range of $1.11 to $1.14 per share. Our 2015 AFFO per share guidance is based on a range of balance sheet acquisitions between $2.5 billion and $3.5 billion as well as $4 billion to $5 billion of acquisitions on behalf of the Managed Funds and ARC Global II in 2015. SO WE SELL A GREAT ASSET which Nicholas S. Schorsch says will increase RCAPs income by 50cps next year and reduce our AFFO to barely cover the dividend. Why?
The issue is hedging going forward to minimize risk to distribution. They are reasonably hedged forward including for the QR aquisition according to the most recent presentation. Question is how far oil falls now that we are an oilier partnership and how long it stays down. Nat Gas should be a bit more stable. Good news is that below $90 new wells are generally not profitable, especially deep wells so it should be a shorter cyle.
With UBTI of over $1000 you will have taxes on any income from ATLS held in your ira. MLPs don't go in an IRA!
In addition to the fact that other bdcs took a hit this morning (BKCC, TICC, PNNT, etc) PSEC made a filing error that might have caused additional pain. That has already been corrected. BDCs are now on average at 20% discounts to book value. ????
ATLS could buy in ARP and redistribute assets to is Atlas growth partners investors, continue to collect fees on the assets while not have the risk. HMMMM. Mr. Cohen said they are looking at different ways to increase ARP shareholder value. Creative ways, I believe he said. That would be creative. This way the balance sheet could be used to buy new properties and place them in new partnerships and keeping an overriding interest. Right now you are buying ARP shares for cheap by buying ATLS.
No!. That is the payout for APL. ATLS gets $9.12 cash and .1809 TRGP plus the spinco of ATLS gp.
After the closing of the Field Services unit, TLLP will rollup the balance of QEPM. This was stated several times during the conference call almost as an afterthought. The QEPM portion of the purchase was secondary to the purchase of Field Services assets and the GP. The question is whether we get stock or cash. I am guessing the price will be around the 20-21 range given where it was trading prior to the announcement in order to preempt class action lawsuits which would be reasonable at this level with the parent leaving the child out to dry. Then it is a question of the cheapest currency. TLLP, which I loaded up on today, if it goes back to upper 60s would make a cheap currency with immediate accretion. I imagine QEPM shadowing TLLP to a certain extent and am also long QEPM as of today.

Let's say they cut the distribution to 90% of AFFO of $.90. That's an 81 cent distribution. So this will recover and become a buyout candidate at 12 x AFFO which would be highly accretive to any buyer who has a strong balance sheet.
I have open orders in the low 12s and keep adding as well. Look at SUNS which is similar and trades at a similar discount. It is thinly traded also and jumped 50cent in the last two days on very little volume.
100% margin means forced liquidation so this should be over by 10:30
