  2. Whooo that’s rich! NGL has two issues to roll due in July with old coupons at 5.125%. Surprised they have to go to public market and at such a premium.
    Sometimes things are exactly what they seem.
    Should be a good trade in this environment of yield chasing. JA

    1. Joel, it looks like there is a $362+MM bond due (that you referenced) in July 2019 http://cbonds.com/emissions/issue/170075 This NGL IPO preferred will only be a fraction of what NGL will need to redeem this corporate bond. It’s quite surprising that NGL wouldn’t or couldn’t float a large mid/short baby bond (5 to 10 years) at a much lower rate than 9.625%…
      Wishing you profitable investing, Nomad

      1. The refi will go to a bank in a higher tranche…you can bet on it! This will just be working capital security for the bank. That’s how the problems in these business started. One opinion. JA

    2. Joel, this is a massive deal and it’s 144A so there is no retail presence. Kind of the way the SEC sticks it to the little retail guy by just letting the institutional a. Punts buy this deals.
      People are oceans, you cannot know them by their surface, Nomad

  3. My buddy at Morgan Stanley Syndicate said the 9.625% NGL IPO preferred will close today at 2 PM and begin trading tomorrow; though it may only be instutionally traded tomorrow. Also said the rate was so “high” because the lead managers/ underwriters (Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated is acting as joint-lead manager and Raymond James & Associates, Inc. is acting as co-manager for the offering) pushed NGL so hardbecause NGL wanted $45 million from the offering and the managers only wanted to do a $20 million deal.
    Not all those who wander are lost, Nomad

  4. NGL posted strong earnings last quarter, and its stock has been climbing. This new preferred may be a good bet.

    1. Yes Wilson I agree. They have been in major revamping of the business for a few years and are doing well now.
