What are Wall Street analysts saying about THL Credit stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about THL Credit stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "THL Credit Inc. is a newly-organized, externally-managed, non-diversified closed-end management investment company that has filed an election to be treated as a business development company. The Company's investment objective is to generate both current income and capital appreciation, primarily through investments in privately negotiated debt and equity securities of middle market companies. The Company invests primarily in private subordinated debt, or mezzanine debt, in middle market companies that require capital for growth and acquisitions. Such investments in many cases include an associated equity component such as warrants, preferred stock or other similar securities. The Company's investment activities are managed by its investment adviser, THL Credit Advisors LLC, which is an investment adviser registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended. " (3/13/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ THL’s NAV/share declined to $9.15 from $10.10 Q/Q and $10.51 Y/Y. The company had $6.4mm of net realized gains versus unrealized depreciation of $36.7mm in 4Q18. Charming Charlie and LAI accounted for over 60% of the quarterly NAV decline and Charming Charlie had its term loans placed on non-accrual status.
    ▪ Charming Charlie had a liquidity crunch for the 12/31/18 quarter that was remedied in part by THL refinancing a loan to them and providing an extended runway for management to perform while LAI is in an active sales process expected to be concluded in the next 45-60 days.
    ▪ The non-sponsor portion of THL’s book was 10% at 12/31/18 compared to 15% Q/Q and 16% Y/Y. We expect that despite the significant progress made by the company in exiting legacy investments, there is still a decent amount of inherent risk left in the portfolio that could potentially be subject to further write-downs. In our opinion, this should keep shares at a decent discount to NAV.
    ▪ The quarterly dividend was cut to $0.21/share from $0.27/share previously. We expected the cut to occur in 3Q19 but also expected to be more severe to $0.19/share. The advisor will now waive any earned incentive fees for all of 2019. At the June shareholders meeting, THL will seek two separate votes that are not conditional on each other. One is to lower the base fee to 100 bps from 150 bps of gross assets less cash and the incentive fee to 17.5% from 20.0% while maintaining the 8% hurdle. The other vote will be to permit THL to reduce its asset coverage to 150% from 200%.
    ▪ We expect shareholders to vote in approval for both of these measures. Despite the poor performance of TCRD the past few years, the reduced asset coverage should free up the 30% basket and allow Logan to grow further which would enhance the overall yield of the portfolio as well as the Sharpe ratio as we see it. THL is also implementing a $15mm 10b5-1 repurchase program. We respect that the company is doing the right thing with fee reductions and capital management, but for the time being we expect these to be eclipsed by the fear of further NAV declines stemming from more credit issues potentially popping up.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.99 from $0.95 as a result of no incentive fee being taken during the year and our expectation of lower base fees in 2H19. We are rolling out our 2020 NII/share estimate of $0.86." (3/11/2019)
