THL Credit, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCRD) had its target price lowered by National Securities from $12.00 to $11.00 in a report released on Monday. National Securities currently has a buy rating on the investment management company’s stock.
“• For 3Q17, TCRD posted NII/share of $0.34, exceeding our estimate by $0.07/share. The beat versus our estimate was entirely due to the company not earning any incentive fee during the quarter as NAV declined further, albeit by a modest amount.
• Non-accruals at amortized cost decreased to $32.4 million as of 9/30/17 from $46.3 million Q/Q as a result of Aerogroup International being placed on non-accrual status during the quarter and previous non-accrual CRS Reprocessing being restructured.
• The company took further shareholder friendly actions that we applaud. The base management fee will be excluded from being added back to setting the capped incentive fee in the look-back calculation. Additionally, the incentive fee will be calculated on a rolling 12-quarter basis instead of the most recent quarter. Under this new structure, the amount of incentive fees paid under this will never exceed what would have been calculated under the current incentive fee formula (which already has a three-year look-back feature). The incentive fee will be waived in 4Q17 just as it was in 3Q17 and the external manager has agreed to waive up to 25% of incentive fees earned through 2018, if required, to ensure the dividend is covered.
• We are revising our 2017 NII/share estimate to $1.26 from $1.15 and are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.11 from $1.16.,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
