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. " (4/9/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " GBDC earned core NII/share of $0.32 for F1Q19, matching our estimate and the quarterly dividend. The company didn’t recognize any dividend income from the SLF during the quarter although earnings were not impacted due to the incentive fee structure. Incentive fees declined to $2.0mm from $3.7mm Q/Q.
     Despite the government shutdown and potential bottleneck with the SEC Golub is still targeting the 6/30/19 quarter for its merger with its nontraded BDC, Golub Capital Investment Corp. (GCIC). We estimate that the merger will bring NAV/share up to $16.64 from $16.04 Q/Q for an increase of 3.7% and that GBDC’s portfolio at fair value will also increase to $3.52 billion from $1.93 billion Q/Q.
     As we’ve previously noted, the merger is likely to be a win-win for both GBDC and GCIC shareholders. GBDC shareholders will have enhanced liquidity, NAV accretion, and a larger portfolio with a company that has 96% overlap. GCIC shareholders also get a liquidity event and a stock that trades generally 15% above NAV. We expect the merger process to be relatively seamless, although we note that a renewed government shutdown could potentially delay the process as the SEC would be closed again.
     We think Golub has several advantages and levers for growth through F2019 and F2020. The volatility in the BSL (broadly syndicated loan market) likely means the certainty of close Golub provides will be more appealing to sponsor-backed companies. Additionally, we think that there will be less of a lag between spread widening in the BSL and the upper middle market (UMM) where Golub typically makes loans relative the core and lower middle market. This should enable GBDC to realize higher effective yields should volatility return (which we expect it will).
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 core NII/share estimate to $1.30 from $1.32 and maintaining our fiscal 2020 core NII/share estimate of $1.34. We are reiterating our BUY rating and our $22 price target. " (2/11/2019)
