What are Wall Street analysts saying about Golub Capital BDC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Golub Capital BDC stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Golub Capital BDC Inc. is a business development company that principally invests in senior secured, unitranche, mezzanine and second lien loans of middle-market companies that are, in most cases, sponsored by private equity investors. The Company's investment activities are managed by its investment adviser, GC Advisors LLC, an affiliate of Golub Capital. " (12/3/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " GBDC posted core NII/share of $0.32 for F4Q18, matching our estimate and the quarterly dividend. With taxable income being in excess of NII, GBDC also declared a $0.12/share special dividend for the 12/31/18 quarter on top of the $0.32/share regular dividend.
     The big news of the earnings release was that GBDC will seek to merge with its nontraded BDC Golub Capital Investment Corporation (GCIC). The proposed merger terms would give GCIC shareholders 0.865 shares of GBDC for each share of GCIC. The transaction is expected to close in calendar 1H19 and would make GBDC the fourth largest public BDC.
     Looking at each company’s NAV/share at 9/30/18, accretion to GBDC would be about 3.6%. However, we model the accretion for the 6/30/18 quarter to be modestly higher at 3.7%. The quarter after the closing of the merger, the Board intends to bump up the quarterly dividend by a penny per share barring any major unfavorable change in market conditions.
     It is worth noting that the two companies are very similar and have a 96% overlap. Even the SLF of each firm is both with RGA and thus it is likely the SLFs of both companies could be rolled up into one in a seamless fashion.
     Golub is also seeking to reduce its asset coverage to 150% from 200% currently although we do not expect the company to go beyond 1.00x on a regulatory basis but rather use this as a means of more flexibility and cushion.
     We are increasing our fiscal 2019 core NII/share estimate to $1.32 from $1.29 and rolling out our fiscal 2020 core NII/share estimate of $1.34 and maintaining our BUY rating and increasing our price target to $22 from $21." (11/30/2018)
