So this leads me to believe that most of Gramercy's available cash and borrowing capacity will be exhausted by the end of the 3rd quarter or early 4th quarter, setting up for the dividend to be caught up on the preferred by year end as that would likely need to occur before any major capital raise.
As for the what the common is worth, I'm going to take a slightly different approach than my previous quarterly recaps (here and here) and instead take a balance sheet look at the valuation based on a slide that Gramercy provided in their presentation. The one thing I noticed initially, is the plug "Intangibles" line item on the asset side is negative, meaning the market is valuing Gramercy above its current NAV.
Given Gramercy's acquisition pace and their capacity analysis slide, I made a few adjustments below to back into a new NAV based on full cash/capacity utilization before a capital raise. I took the $96.9 million in net equity capacity and assumed Gramercy would make new acquisitions at a 9% cap rate (average of the 2nd quarter), and then those assets would be revalued by the market at a 7% cap rate ("widest arbitrage in our experience") to come up with $124.59 million in additional real estate owned (on top of the $10.6 million in the pipeline). Making those asset purchases zeroes out both the cash and CDO advances and asset sales line items, but keeps the KBS Promote and CDO Bonds line items. In Gramercy's slide they leave out the value of the asset management contracts, but these clearly have value. Given that they're generating $4 million in after tax contribution annually, and have about a 3 year lifecycle, I discounted that back a bit to a round $10 million to come up with a total asset value of $631.8 million.
On the liabilities side, I removed the preferred dividend as its paid in the capacity analysis calculation and then added the pipeline and current portfolio borrowing capacity numbers given in Gramercy's guidance, making the total debt $237.9 million, or roughly 40% of the real estate value, inline with management's comments today.
Removing the preferred par value, and the common is worth $305.8 million, or $5.14 per share, which is pretty much the same as I've come up with before, and is only ~15% above what it's trading at now. But I think the dividend is finally on the horizon, and then Gramercy can start raising capital and further exploiting the private/public net lease arbitrage. Gramercy remains my largest position, although I might be tempted to sell a bit if it trades above $5.20 again without paying the dividend.
