Assured Guaranty renews motion for appointment of receiver for PREPA

Assured Guaranty released comments regarding a new motion and form of complaint filed in Federal District Court in Puerto Rico today by two of its bond insurance subsidiaries, as well as National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation and Syncora Guarantee. The motion and form of complaint seek an order lifting the automatic stay to allow Assured Guaranty to seek relief before a court of competent jurisdiction, by filing the proposed complaint, to appoint a receiver for the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or PREPA. Assured Guaranty stated that "PREPA is failing to fulfill its obligations to all of Puerto Rico's stakeholders, including its ratepayers and creditors. As a result of PREPA's defaults, Assured Guaranty and the other parties are entitled to the appointment of a receiver for PREPA (...) This entitlement to a receiver is automatic once PREPA's bonds default. Lifting the automatic stay and appointing a receiver for PREPA is necessary to ensure the collateral package securing PREPA's bonds is not diminished (...) Despite filing the motion, Assured Guaranty stands ready, and would prefer, to work cooperatively with the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico to consensually appoint a receiver for PREPA". Irrespective of PREPA's payment defaults on its bonds and its Title III bankruptcy filing, payments to holders of PREPA bonds insured by Assured Guaranty will continue to be paid without interruption for the life of the bonds.

Buy
Assured Guaranty unlikely to see real loss forecast by Einhorn, say MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong keeps his Buy rating and $55 price target on Assured Guaranty, saying that investors should take advantage of the 3% decline in the stock price afterhours following a negative view taken by Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn at the Ira Sohn conference. Fong says Einhorn's model of a $2.8B implied loss on the company's Puerto Rico exposure is inaccurate as it has already established a significant loss reserve for Puerto Rico that is likely to be over $1B. The analyst adds that "the company has no liquidity issue of any significance as its debt service payments are stretched out over many years".

BTIG says PREPA request rejection a 'huge' positive for Assured Guaranty, MBIA
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer said that U.S. District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain's rejection of the financial oversight board's effort to prime the bondholders of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, or PREPA, is a "huge" positive for municipal bond insurers Assured Guaranty (AGO) and MBIA (MBI). Each have significant insured exposure to PREPA's debt and the rejection of PREPA's effort to gain approval for a $1B DIP loan issued by the Puerto Rico government that would have primed the utility's bondholders was a big win, said Palmer. He also believes the ruling had broader implications for them and fellow municipal bond insurer Ambac Financial (AMBC), which has no insured exposure to PREPA but still filed a motion opposing the DIP loan. MBIA shares are up 6.8% in early trading while Assured Guaranty is up about 3.8%.

Keefe Bruyette starts Assured Guaranty with Outperform, $47 target
Keefe Bruyette analyst Bose George started Assured Guaranty with an Outperform rating and $47 price target. While the company's losses from the Puerto Rican debt crisis could be material, a more likely scenario is a resolution that results in losses that are already incorporated in the valuation of the shares, George tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes higher interest rates should improve the landscape for new business.

Bond insurer decline could be opportunity, says MKM Partners
After President Trump said all of Puerto Rico's debt would have to be wiped out, MKM PArtners analyst Harry Fong does not expect the debt to actually be wiped out. He believes that taking this step would violate the principles of contract law and could destroy the municipal bond market. The analyst adds that the bond insurers will not face liquidity issues if Puerto Rico's debt is wiped out. He believes that the decline in their stocks could prove to be a buying opportunity. He keeps Buy ratings on Assured Guaranty (AGO) and MBIA (MBI), and he maintains a Neutral rating on Ambac (AMBC).
