Private equity firms bet on stock market's fixer-uppers

It is a bet that buyout firms can spot listed companies’ potential that the stock market has been missing, and a sign of confidence in their ability to turn them around even as some of their shareholders have lost patience or faith in them.

“There are quite a few public companies that are maybe a little less exciting, maybe have made some missteps or just simply have a bit of a more complex story,” said Scott Kleinman, co-president of Apollo Global Management LLC.

“As a result, they haven’t seen their valuations move at all like the general story of the market.”

Apollo last year raised a record $24.6 billion for a private equity fund and has taken several companies private in recent years.

As cheap private deals get scarce, underpriced listed companies offer an alternative. Such bets can be risky, though, because a stock’s underperformance may reflect deep-seated issues that private equity fund managers may struggle to resolve, such as emergence of new competitors in its market.

TCI to Issue $190m Worth of Equity-Based Ijarah Sukuk

Telecommunications Company of Iran is set to underwrite 8 trillion rials ($190.4 million) worth of equity-based Ijarah sukuk on Tehran Stock Exchange today (Sunday). “The four-year bonds will be used to finance TCI’s working capital,” Gholamreza Aboutorabi, the head of Central Securities Depository of Iran, said. They will bear 16% annual interest paid every quarter. This is the second time this type of Islamic debt security is being issued on the Iranian capital market. The first was by Social Security Investment Company worth 10 trillion rials ($238 million) on March 12. Ijarah sukuk are securities representing the ownership of well-defined assets tied up to a lease contract, the rent for which is the return payable to sukuk holders. The twist here is the well-defined asset is 567.8 million shares in Mobile Telecommunications Company of Iran priced at 14,089 rials each and owned by TCI, which will be eventually bought back as the bonds mature, Securities and Exchange Organization’s News Agency reported.
