First Ship Lease Trust

RE: First Ship Lease Trust
Attended the AGM. Below were some observations.

Mgmt Key concern is now the financing of the syndicated loans. With the upcoming financing of the 2 chemical tankers, FSL's mgmt mentioned it will be able to fully refinance the syndicated loan, after the successful refinancing, the new FSL mgmt will then present their long term plans. 

Judging from the latest quarter results, it seems the refinancing is likely to go through because current debts stand at US$120 mil and with $97 mil refinancing ready and $10 mil in cash, FSL just needs $13 million to be raised from its 2 chemical tankers (market value about US$20 mil total).

Tiger Investment- Tiger Investment was recently declared as a substantial holder. They also sent a rep for the AGM to voice their concerns over the convertible bonds of 7%. FSL mgmt replied the convertible bond had to be done because of time constraints and current syndicated loan banks were fighting for liquidation of the vessels to recover the principal. IMO, getting 7% convertible interest loan is fair considering that FSL's secured lending is already at 5.2%. It was also mentioned Tiger had been calling the current board voicing their concern over the convertible bonds. Pherhaps we might be seeing another activist member appearing.

New Term Loans- While mgmt were not able to disclose the interest of the new term loans, they mentioned during Tea that the interest margin is similar to the syndicated loan deal (5.2%)

I thought Tiger is equity shareholder. Or am I wrong?

RE: First Ship Lease Trust
Tiger is an equity holder.

VGO is the fund who is planning to subscribe to the convertible bond. In my view, the interest terms is fair at 7%; but the conversion rate of 7,4 SG cents is a tad too low. If FSL refinances the US$120 Mil debt successfully, we are looking at net cash flow of possibly $0.12 cents total until 2023. For VGO, it is very high returns on top of a 7% interest

FSL has used the proceeds raised from the convertible bonds to pay down debts. As of today, debts stands at US $110 Million.

Given that FSL has secured three loan deals totaling US$108 million and has cash reserves of about US $6 million, the trust is likely to continue as a going concern. All they have to do now is ride out the storm. Cash flow wise the company is still earning approximately US$10mil per quarter of cashflow. From this trajectory and assuming 6% effective interest, the trust will pay down its loans by 2022.
