  • Eric Insurance – Updated recommendation

    Jun 21, 2019
    Following the announcement that Eric Insurance had finalised an agreement with ASIC in relation to its remediation program, we believe that the near term prospects for the Company have improved and no longer considered speculative. While we are of the view that Eric, and the insurance sector more generally are facing some headwinds, we believe the notes, at an indicative mid-price of AUD77.50, offer good relative value, with real prospects of capital appreciation over the near-to-medium term.

    Jun 19, 2019
    On 18 June 2019, Eric Insurance announced that it had agreed with ASIC the terms of the remediation program, with total remediation costs expected to reach AUD3.4m. The finalisation of the terms of remediation removes a significant uncertainty for Eric in our opinion. Pending discussions with the Company, we are placing our recommendation Under Review, noting the likelihood that the previous Speculative recommendation will be revised.

  • Next Generation Clubs Australia Update

    Jun 14, 2019
    We reiterate our recommendation on Next Gen's 7.90% notes due 2023, with a Stable credit outlook. The Group reported 1Q19 revenue of AUD9.6m and EBITDA of AUD2.5m, which were softer than 1Q18. Membership income from Perth South has led to lower forecasted EBITDA for FY2019, and leverage is forecasted to remain temporarily elevated.
