                                                    Investing in Distressed Debt

 

Distressed securities may be an attractive investment option for sophisticated investors who are looking for a bargain and are willing to accept some risk. Distressed debt investing combines the best of both worlds — the cash flow of debt investments with the appreciation potential of stocks. While there is no hard and fast rule for what makes a “distressed” investment, it’s generally accepted that distressed debt trades at a huge discount to par value  because the borrower is under financial stress and at risk of default. Distressed securities are debt securities; most often corporate bonds, of companies that are in some sort of distress.

When a company is unable or even challenged in meeting its financial obligations, its debt securities may be substantially reduced in value. When does “reduced in value” become “distressed”? Typically, a company’s debt is considered distressed when its yield to maturity is more than 1000 basis points above the risk-free rate of return (which is the return of a “risk-free” asset such as U.S. Treasuries). A security is also often considered distressed if it is rated CCC or below by one or more of the major debt-rating agencies, which include Standard & Poors, Moodys and Fitch.

Many companies fail simply because they are overburdened with debt. Distressed debt investors can make a fortune by buying the debt of over leveraged companies with pennies for dollars with the goal of taking control of the company.

When a company becomes distressed, the investors holding its securities often react to the possibility of bankruptcy by selling those securities at a reduced price. Most mutual funds are not allowed to hold securities that have defaulted. Due to these rules, a large supply of debt is available shortly after a firm defaults. Because their price is often greatly reduced, distressed securities are attractive to investors who are looking for real bargains. Typically, these investors think the company that issued the distressed securities is not in as difficult a position as the market believes.

The company may not enter bankruptcy at all. It may enter Chapter 7 bankruptcy (which involves shutting its doors), but upon liquidation, have enough money to pay its debt holders. Or, it may enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy (which lets the company continue operating while working out a plan for reorganization with a committee of major creditors) and successfully reorganize. In all of these cases, the value of the company’s distressed securities may increase, allowing investors holding those securities to profit.

Investors in distressed securities must be willing to accept significant risk, however. Most distressed securities are issued by companies that end up filing for bankruptcy. When this happens, some distressed securities are rendered worthless. For example, when a company goes bankrupt, its common stock often has no value (which is why many investors limit their investments to more senior distressed securities. As a result, investors in distressed securities must have the knowledge and skill to accurately assess whether the issuer (the company in distress) can improve its operations and successfully reorganize—and if so, which of its securities will benefit.

Because of the risks involved, large institutional investors—such as hedge funds, private equity firms and investment banks—are the major buyers of distressed securities. Often, these investors—alone or in conjunction with other distressed investors—will try to influence the process by which the issuing company reorganizes. Sometimes, the investors will inject new capital into the company in exchange for, say, equity.

Consider this example: Let’s suppose you think XYZ Corp. is a good company, but it carries way too much debt relative to its earnings power. You believe that if the company were debt free, it could be worth as much as $1 billion. Unfortunately, it carries about $2 billion in debt it cannot afford to pay.

The company’s debt trades for about $0.20 on the dollar, as investors are running for the exits as quickly as they can. You start buying up the debt. Within months, you acquire all of its $2 billion in debt for just $400 million.

When XYZ Corp. inevitably goes into bankruptcy, you’ll be first in line to collect on your debt. But XYZ Corp. cannot afford to simply pay you off with cash; if it could, it wouldn’t be in bankrupcty.

The stockholders, being rational investors, don’t want to pony up $2 billion in cash to pay off the debt just to retain ownership of a company only worth $1 billion.

The stockholders turn over the keys to you. You now have control of a debt-free company worth $1 billion in exchange for a $400 million investment in its debt.

You were a lend-to-own investor, buying up the company’s debt to take control of the business when it couldn’t pay you back as scheduled. For your effort, you net a 150% return on your money, turning $400 million into $1 billion

 DEFINITION of ‘Distressed Bonds’

A financial instrument in a company that is near or valued as if it go into default. This main issue is usually the results from a company’s inability to meet its financial obligations.  As a result, these financial instruments often suffered a substantial reduction in value as many of the mutual funds due to their internal bylaws are forced to sell these assets no matter how attractive they might beleive they are.

Due to their significant reduction in value, distressed securities often become attractive to investors who are looking for a “bargain” or “pennies on the dollar” and are willing to accept a higher risk. Because most of the time these companies end up filing for restructuring their debt or Chapter 11 or 7, there are substantial risks involved in investing in them.

The logic behind this investment is that the company’s situation is not as bad as the market believes it to be and either the company will survive or there will be enough money upon liquidation to cover the original investment.

Presented below is a summary of the 30 bond reviews and recommendations that we have given to our clients over the past twelve months, from the end of October, 2013 through the start of November, 2014.  Twenty three of these global corporate debt instruments were Yankee Bonds (foreign corporation debt denominated in US dollars), and seven were issued in other currencies, including, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, Brazilian reals, and British Pound Sterling.

 

Each summary that follows lists the issuer, coupon rate, maturity, credit rating, the yields at the time of acquisition, the portfolio (FX1, FX2, or FX3) each was added to, as well as a brief update of the issuer.  Many of the companies hold dominant positions within their respective countries.  It is not uncommon, however, to find credit ratings that are constrained by a national sovereign credit rating.

 

·         23 US dollar debt additions, with average indications of 9.84%*, made to FX1.

·         30 mixed currency debt additions, averaging 9.63%*, were made to FX2.

·          7 foreign currency debt additions, averaging 8.96%*, were made to FX3.

Presented below is a summary of the 26 bond recommendations that we have made to our clients over the last 12 months, from June 2013 through May 2014. The yields shown below are when these securities were added to our FX1,FX2, and/or FX3 Fixed Income portfolios, and they average 9.81%.

Nineteen of these global corporate debt instruments were Yankee bonds (foreign corporation debt denominated in US dollars), with nine in other currencies, including Canadian dollars, Swedish krona, Brazilian real, and Russian rubles.

Each summary that follows lists the issuer, coupon rate, maturity, credit rating, the yields obtained at the time of acquisition, the portfolio (FX1, F2, or FX3) each was added to, as well as the business sector and a brief recap of the reason for its selection. Many of the companies hold prominent or even dominant positions within their respective countries. It is not uncommon, however, to find credit ratings that are constrained by a national sovereign credit rating.

  • 19 US dollar debt additions, averaging 10.25% yield, were made to FX1.
  • 26 mixed currency debt additions, averaging 9.81% yield, were made to FX2.

Presented below is a summary of the 15 bonds that we have researched, recommended in reviews sent to our clients, and then published on Bond-Yields.com for the last 6 months.

In the last half year, the yields indicated when these securities were initially added to our FX1, FX2, and/or FX3 Fixed Income portfolios have averaged 9.68%.  Thirteen of these global corporate debt instruments were Yankee bonds (foreign corporation debt denominated in US dollars), one was in Swedish krona, and one was in Canadian dollars.  Each paragraph details the coupon rate, maturity, CUSIP, credit rating, and the yields obtained at the time of acquisition for the FX1, FX2, or FX3 portfolios, as well as giving the business sector and a brief recap of the reason for its selection.  Many of the companies hold prominent, dominant, or even monopolistic positioning within their respective countries, and it is not uncommon to find credit ratings that are constrained by a national sovereign credit rating.  The following breakdown indicates which portfolio each issue was added to:

14 US dollar notes, averaging 9.9% yield, were added to FX1

16 mixed currency notes (87.5% were USD), averaging 9.68% yield, were added to FX2

Each week we screen thousands of corporate bond listings to find what we believe are currently the best corporate bonds for investors needing or seeking higher yields with the least amount of risk possible relative to its projected return.  This week, we focused on 4 1/4 year Yankee bonds (in US dollars) from Rolta LLC, a leading Internet Technology and Intellectual Property firm in India.  Although the nearly 11% yields currently indicated with this bond that carries only a -BB rating from Standard & Poor’s and Fitch, the following review shows why we see these 52 month high yield notes as a savvy means to both increase cash flow and preserve wealth.  We also believe this debt instrument offers unique diversification into the emerging Indian economy, and that it makes a sound addition to two of our client’s high yielding managed income portfolios, Fixed-Income1.com and Fixed-Income2.com.

SD_Logo_FullColorThis week we look at a lesser known preferred stock issued by SandRidge Energy (SD) for our fixed income clients which is currently indicating an annual yield that is over 8.25%.  With this instrument’s convertibility feature allowing for the possibility of adding even greater long term capital gains into its total return potential, our investigation into the recently improved operations of this company leads us to believe that this may be a rare and unusual opportunity to achieve higher US dollar dividend yields in the very profitable energy sector.  Although this selection is not specifically targeted for addition to our FX1, FX2 or FX3 Fixed Income portfolios, we see its 8.5% qualified (lower tax rate) dividend as an extra bonus on top of a cash payout already high enough to be an easily welcomed addition in most fixed incomers stable of investments.  Therefore we are identifying these SandRidge Preferred Securities as a Special Opportunity Buy.

Camposol Peru- not the ethical champions they claim to beEach week we strive to find what we believe are currently the best corporate bonds for investors needing or seeking good cash flow and high yields with the least amount of risk possible relative to the projected returns.  This week, we look at short 3¼ year Yankee bonds (in US dollars) from Camposol, the leading agro industrial company in Peru, the largest exporter of asparagus in the world, and soon to be the leading producer of avocados in the planet.  Although the approximately 8.45% yields currently indicated with this bond only carries a B rating from Standard & Poor’s, the following review shows why we see these 39 month high yield notes are a good choice to both increase cash flow and preserve capital.  We also believe this debt instrument offers sound diversification away from the financial services sector of the global economy.  Consequently, we think these bonds are a savvy choice for two of our high yield managed income portfolios, Fixed-Income1.com and Fixed-Income2.com.
