    Nov 13, 2020

  • NCIG FY20 Update

    Nov 06, 2020
    Given the cost recovery nature of NCIG’s operating and financial operations, a traditional financial analysis of results is not relevant since the company aims to simply recover the costs it is incurring rather than seek to generate a profit for its shareholders. Saying that, on all measures, NCIG performed strongly in the year ending 30 June 2020. During the period, NCIG shipped about 54.5m tonnes of coal, up from 53Mt in FY19. Given the revenue recovered during the period, this equated to a cost to shippers of ~USD5.60 per tonne shipped (or under USD4.50 per tonne of capacity).

  • Eric Insurance Q1FY21 Update

    Oct 29, 2020
    Eric recently provided an update on its financial results for 1Q21, reporting an unaudited statutory profit after tax of AUD0.6m (compared with a loss after tax of AUD(0.9)m in the prior corresponding period). The reported underlying trading profit--a measure of underwriting profitability excluding nonrecurring items--was AUD2.0m. New policies were up modestly quarter-on-quarter reflecting the slow recovery, although stronger outcomes will be clearly dependent on the pace of recovery in Australia (as well as the supply of new motor vehicles). The strength of Eric’s balance sheet continues to improve, with Eric’s total capital ratio remaining substantially above regulatory requirements.

  • Oasis Petroleum Chapter 11

    Oct 01, 2020
    On 30 September 2020, Oasis Petroleum Inc. (OAS, Company) along with certain subsidiaries, announced it had sought Chapter 11 protection under the relevant provisions of the US Bankruptcy Code. In our view, this is not surprising given the extremely challenging operating environment the Company has experienced since the oil price crashed in mid-March that resulted in uncertainty about covenant compliance on its revolving credit facility (which we flagged in our April and August reports).

    Sep 25, 2020
    Eric Insurance (Eric, Company) reported a statutory net loss after tax of AUD(7.7m) for the year ended 30 June 2020 (FY20). This compares with a statutory net loss after tax of AUD(0.39m) in the prior year. Results were unfavourably impacted by lower gross written premiums through the continued decline in new car registrations and the significant impact of COVID-19 in the last quarter of FY20, as well as a number of material non-cash items. The underlying insurance trading result--a measure of underwriting profitability excluding nonrecurring items, as produced by the Company--was 21% lower in FY20 at AUD10.9m. Importantly for noteholders, and despite market turbulence in March 2020, Eric’s Tier 1 regulatory ratio managed to remain broadly unchanged at 123.2%, above a required level of 80%.
