Appaloosa reports 9.53% TerraForm Power stake, may act as sponsor

Appaloosa, which owns a 9.53% stake in TerraForm Power (TERP), said in a regulatory filing that Brookfield (BAM) sent a letter to the boards of directors of the TerraForm companies, including TerraForm Power and TerraForm Global (GLBL). The letter said that Brookfield understands that if the TerraForm companies enter into a binding change of control agreement by December 6th, no bondholder waiver is required. "We are therefore prepared to commit significant internal and external resources, on a non-exclusive basis, to complete operational and financial due diligence to seek to be in a position to enter into binding agreements by December 6th such that no waiver is required. As described to you in our meeting of November 8th, we are prepared to make an all-cash offer for 100% of the shares of TERP or, alternatively, an all-cash offer for a minimum 50% and maximum 60% stake in TERP in connection with a long-term Brookfield sponsorship transaction, which would include a substantial ROFO pipeline and additional capital provided by Brookfield to support future growth. We are offering the alternative Brookfield sponsorship transaction because we understand that there a number of TERP stakeholders who would prefer this option. Subject to due diligence, we anticipate that our offer price would be at a value of $13 per TERP Class A or Class B share, which represents a 49% premium to the TERP Class A closing price on June 28, 2016, the day prior to Brookfield's original 13D filing which disclosed its ownership interest in TERP. We would also be prepared, if desired by you, to make an offer with respect to GLBL. Our binding agreements would include customary provisions which would permit the TerraForm companies to pursue superior proposals to allow the Boards to exercise their fiduciary duties. We would expect our diligence to include access to all relevant documentation regarding material agreements, litigation and disputes, liabilities or contingencies, independent engineering reports, and regulatory and compliance matters." Brookfield added that it is prepared to act as interim sponsor of the TerraForm companies for a period of up to six months, solely on a cost recovery basis. "We firmly believe that these proposals represent unique and extremely attractive opportunities for the TERP and GLBL shareholders, as well as to the creditors of SunEdison. We further believe that it is imperative that the Boards of TERP and GLBL act quickly to avoid the further diminution of value of the TerraForm companies. We have made these proposals in the spirit of providing you with the immediate ability to restore stability and confidence in their businesses, with no downside risk. In order to be able to effect either or both of these proposals, which as you know, are extremely time sensitive in nature, it will be necessary for you to formally engage with us, in good faith and on a non-exclusive basis, prior to the close of business on Monday, November 21st, with the mutual objective of attempting to reach a binding agreement in advance of the December 6th deadline, or, in the case of the interim sponsorship, make arrangements for an effective transition."

Election to impact solar, alternative transportation plays, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch believes Trump's surprise victory, in tandem with Republicans maintaining control of Congress, constitutes a material negative for the majority of stocks under the firm's coverage and injects "significant policy uncertainty" into the growth outlook for multiple verticals, with solar/ alternative transportation plays the most impacted. He thinks residential solar plays will see lower volumes on more challenging regulations/slower demand, and expects First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) to take share of a smaller utility-scale solar project pie. Yieldcos like NextEra Energy Partners (NEP), NRG Yield (NYLD), 8point3 Energy (CAFD), Pattern Energy (PEGI), and TerraForm Power (TERP) could see a smaller set of available projects, he adds. Rusch believes a Trump administration could weaken or repeal corporate fuel economy standards, and a rollback could be a net negative for Johnson Controls (JCI), Ideal Power (IPWR) and Maxwell (MXWL). Also, he would not be surprised to see a Trump administration attempt to block federal support for EV buyers but provide support for companies such as Tesla (TSLA) that are creating U.S. manufacturing jobs.

TerraForm Power downgraded to Perform at Oppenheimer
As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch downgraded TerraForm Power (TERP) to Perform from Outperform following the company's filing of preliminary financial data as part of an effort to solicit debt holders' waiver of filing deadlines ahead of a potential August 19th cross-default. With its revolving line of credit fully utilized, approximately $3.9B in total debt, and limited capital flexibility, the analyst sees TerraForm Power as "highly" levered and notes the uncertainty around risk to equity cash flows from ongoing negotiations. Further, he sees ongoing risk to O&M arrangements, performance guarantees, and operating and interest expense support from SunEdison (SUNEQ).
