De hele onderste rij is weggevallen. Heeft te maken met een fout in de weergave van de koersentabel.
Ik verbaas me erover hoe goed Eurocastle blijft liggen. Terwijl Dobank -8% noteert, verliest Eurocastle maar een procent.
Ik had ook verwacht dat Eurocastle wat meer last zou hebben van de perikelen in Italië. Geen idee. Ik zie het voorlopig maar als meevaller
Gaat iets niet goed. Op naar de €5,20???
Ik zit er zo langzamerhand aan te denken om weer een positie in te nemen. Ondanks alle politieke turbulentie draait de Italiaanse economie nog steeds redelijk goed. Op korte termijn kunnen de plannen van de nieuwe regering zelfs een boost geven aan het economisch klimaat. Dobank lijkt bovendien te zijn gebodemd.
Anderzijds is het beurssentiment momenteel nogal wispelturig en de liquiditeit van de aandelen Eurocastle slechter geworden. Op lange termijn is het plaatje ook minder rooskleurig. Italië heeft de hoogconjunctuur niet gebruikt om de economie te hervormen en de staatsfinanciën op orde te brengen. De nieuwe regering is ook niet van zins om dat te doen. Dat maakt het land extra kwetsbaar voor economisch mindere tijden.
Ik zie op de website niet wanneer de 3e kwartaalcijfers worden gepubliceerd. Vorig jaar werden die eind november bekendgemaakt. Wellicht volgen er nog wat bijstellingen t.a.v. het verwachte rendement op de portefeuilles NPL's.
Krimp voor Italiaanse industrie
Gepubliceerd op 2 nov 2018
LONDEN (AFN) - De bedrijvigheid in de Italiaanse industrie heeft in oktober de scherpste krimp laten zien in bijna vier jaar. Dat meldde marktonderzoeker Markit. De industrie in Italië heeft te maken met een zwakkere wereldwijde vraag en de politieke onzekerheid in het land.
De inkoopmanagersindex van Markit voor de industrie in Italië noteerde een stand van 49,2. In september kwam die uit op 50, wat betekent dat toen stagnatie was te zien. De consensus van economen lag op 49,7. De Italiaanse regering ligt overhoop met de Europese Commissie over de begrotingsplannen. Rome wil juist meer uitgeven om zo de economie te stimuleren, terwijl Brussel wil dat meer wordt gedaan om de hoge staatsschuld terug te dringen.
Q3 cijfers worden op 15 november bekendgemaakt: phx.corporate-ir.net/external.file?t=...
doBank publiceerde vandaag prima 3Q18 cijfers en outlook.
Consolidated financial highlights as at September 30, 2018 compared with September 30, 2017.
? Gross revenues: €161.9 million, +11% on €145.7 million;
? Net revenues: €145.9 million, +10% compared with €132.4 million;
? EBITDA: €54.4 million, +30% compared with €41.7 million;
? EBITDA margin: 34%, up 5 percentage points compared with 29%;
? Net profit: €34.8 million, +29% compared with €26.9 million;
? Net financial position: a positive (cash) €37.5 million, after dividend payments of €30.9 million (a
positive €38.6 million at December 31, 2017);
? CET1: 29.1% compared with 26.4% at December 31, 2017 (CET1 of CRR Group at 24.4%
compared with 29.8% at December 31, 2017).
Portfolio under management
? Gross book value of assets under management (GBV) amounted to €83.5 billion (€76.7 billion at
the end of 2017 and €78.9 billion at September 30, 2017), with the rise reflecting the progressive
onboarding since the start of 2018 of new servicing contracts with a GBV of more than €12 billion. The
GBV of assets under management amounted to €85.3 billion including the €1.8 billion contract awarded
by Greece’s four systemic banks.
? Collections amounted to €1,334 million, +8% compared with €1,234 million at September 30, 2017.
Developments in collections benefitted from a significant acceleration in the third quarter of the year,
in line with expectations, reflecting the impact of the onboarding of new management contracts in the
first half of the year. The sharp growth in collections in the third quarter of 2018 also reflected a
favourable basis of comparison compared with the same period of 2017, a year in which annual
collections were more highly concentrated in the first half of the year.
In line with the objectives of the 2018-2020 Business Plan, presented on June 19 this year, in 2018 the Group
intends to continue strengthening its leadership in the credit servicing market.
By obtaining new management contracts with a gross book value of between €15 billion and €17 billion and
improving operating efficiency, the Group expects to achieve collections of more than €2 billion and, with the
contribution of ancillary services as well, post gross revenues of over €230 million. The growth in revenues will
be accompanied by an expansion of our operating margin (ordinary EBITDA margin), substantial cash
generation and a dividend payout of at least 65% of ordinary consolidated net income.
ik heb zojuist een plukje Eurocastle gekocht:
die hebben morgen voorbeurs cijfers, en dat moet imo haast wel meevallen. (gokje natuurlijk)
die waren imo helemaal 'vergeten' en wegesukkeld in koers (Italy bad!)
Italiaanse banken doen het vreselijk, maar DoBank lijkt uitgebodemd, en de cijfers van DoBank lijken mee te vallen met goede vooruitzichten: zie hierboven. En Dobank had meer performance fees als gevolg van hogere recoveries. Dus de cijfers van Eurocastle moeten haast wel goed zijn zou je dan zeggen. Gezien de overlap in portefeuilles.
ellende Italiaanse banken betekent voor Eurocastle (en Dobank) qua NPL ook meer cherrypicking.
NAV zo'n 9,5
(€9.53 per share pro forma post share tender, en daarna stijgend effect van de sharebuybacks ruim onder NAV)
en ze waren dus al erg keen om met tender in te kopen op 8 en een lopend share buyback uit te voeren: wat dat betreft verwacht ik ook qua 'bewoordingen'; dat ze de koers wel laag vinden.

Normalised FFO (“NFFO”) is a non-IFRS financial measure that, with respect to all of the Company’s Italian Investments other than the
doBank Group, recognises i) income on an expected yield basis updated periodically, allowing Eurocastle to report the run rate earnings
from these investments in line with their expected annualised returns and ii) any additional gains or losses not previously recognised
through NFFO at the point investments are realised. Cash flow receipts are therefore allocated by the Company between income and
capital in accordance with this expected yield methodology. With respect to the doBank Group, following the IPO, the Company now
recognises NFFO based on its share of doBank’s reported annual net income after tax together with any gains or losses arising from the
sale of its shares. The income cash flow profile of each of the Company’s investments may not exactly equal the NFFO recognised by
the Company each period but will do so over the life of each investment
TENDER OFFER AND BUY-BACK PROGRAMME
Background to and reasons for the Tender Offer and Share Buy-Back Programme
Eurocastle and its Board of Directors (the “Board”) continuously monitor the Company’s balance sheet with the aim of maintaining an
efficient capital structure while meeting the requirements to execute on the Company’s investment pipeline. In light of the discount at
which Eurocastle has recently been trading to its net asset value (“NAV”) and the Company’s available cash, the Board believes that the
implementation of the Tender Offer at an attractive premium to the prevailing share price provides liquidity to investors while representing
an accretive and expeditious use of available cash. The Share Buy-Back Programme to follow the Tender Offer is seen by the Company
as an additional means to continue to take advantage of any prevailing share price discount to its NAV over a prolonged period while also
providing additional liquidity in its shares.
The Tender Offer
A circular (the “Circular”) to shareholders in relation to the Tender Offer has been posted on the Investor Relations section of the
Company’s website under the tab “Periodic Reports and Shareholder Communications – Tender Offer”.
The Tender Offer and the Share Buy-Back Programme are being undertaken pursuant to the authority passed at the Company’s Annual
General Meeting held on 20 June 2018. The Tender Offer will remain open until 6.00 p.m. (CET) on 14 December 2018 and is being
made at a price of €6.50 per existing Ordinary Share in issue (the “Tender Price”). The repurchase of Ordinary Shares by the Company
pursuant to the Tender Offer will be carried out through ABN AMRO Bank N.V. acting for and on behalf of the Company as agent.
The Tender Price has been set at €6.50 per share, representing a premium of 7.5% to the volume weighted average closing price on
Euronext Amsterdam of €6.05 per Ordinary Share over the last month to 14 November 2018 (the latest practicable date before the
publication of this announcement), and a discount of approximately 21.6% to the Company’s Pro Forma NAV1 of €8.29 per share as at
14 November 2018.
The Tender Offer will provide shareholders who are eligible with an opportunity to sell part or all of their Ordinary Shares and to receive
their respective share of the cash which the Company is seeking to return. The Tender Offer will allow the Company to broaden the return
of cash to include those shareholders whose Ordinary Shares might not otherwise be purchased by the Company through a general onmarket
Each eligible shareholder will be entitled to sell up to 4.86 per cent. of the Ordinary Shares registered in their respective names on the
record date under the Tender Offer, rounded down to the nearest whole number of Ordinary Shares. This is what is known as each eligible
shareholder’s “Basic Entitlement”. All Ordinary Shares validly tendered by eligible shareholders up to their respective Basic Entitlement
will be accepted and repurchased in full. Tendering shareholders may also be able to participate in the Tender Offer in excess of their
Basic Entitlement to the extent that other eligible shareholders tender less than their respective Basic Entitlement, resulting in surplus
Ordinary Shares (known as “Excess Tender Offer Shares”). Any Excess Tender Offer Shares will be repurchased from tendering
Shareholders pro rata to the amount in excess of each eligible shareholder’s Basic Entitlement so tendered.
The repurchase of Ordinary Shares by the Company will be carried out on-market through the available systems of Euronext. The Tender
Offer will be financed through the use of the Company’s existing and available cash resources.
The Tender Offer is available to eligible shareholders outside Canada and Japan in respect of the number of Ordinary Shares registered
in those shareholders’ names at 6.00 p.m. (CET) on 14 December 2018.
The formal terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are set out in the Circular and tender form. The results of the Tender Offer will be
announced on 17 December 2018 and published on the Company’s website (www.eurocastleinv.com).
Share Buy-Back Programme
Under the Share Buy-Back Programme, Eurocastle is seeking to buy back shares up to an aggregate market value equivalent to €2.0
million, subject to the limitation of the buy-back authority set out below. The Share Buy-Back Programme will commence following the
settlement of the Tender Offer which is expected to occur on 20 December 2018.
The buy-back will be conducted in Eurocastle’s ordinary shares listed on Euronext Amsterdam.
The Share Buy-Back Programme will take place within the limitations of the authority granted to the Board at its Annual General Meeting
held on 20 June 2018, pursuant to which the maximum number of shares to be bought back is 13,178,041. Taking into account the amount
of shares repurchased by the Company up to 14 November 2018 (the latest practicable date) since the buyback authority was renewed,
and in the event that the Tender Offer is fully subscribed, the maximum number of shares that could be bought back under the Share Buy-
Back Programme would be 5,633,491.
The Share Buy-Back Programme will also be conducted within the parameters prescribed by the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014, and
the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052.p
The Share Buy-Back Programme will commence on 20 December 2018 and will end no later than 6 March 2019, at which point the Board
will review the success of the programme and determine whether to renew the programme for a further period.
Eurocastle has entered into a non-discretionary mandate with Liberum Capital Limited to conduct the Share Buy-Back Programme on its
behalf and to make trading decisions under the programme independently of the Company within parameters set by the Board.
