“We are resuming coverage of FA Capital after exiting a period of research restriction. Yesterday FA Capital completed its strategic review and chose to refocus the Company on a single primary business – its national mortgage brokerage franchise platform called Dominion Lending Centres (DLC). FA Capital has entered into a letter of intent to purchase the 40% minority stake in DLC it did not already own for ~$75.8MM including 41.0MM FA Capital shares at a deemed price of C$1.75 per share and a C$4MM, 6% sellers note. The deal adds about C$8MM of attributable EBITDA (12 months to and equates to ~9.5x TTM acquired EBITDA. It also cancels the distribution bonus the sellers have on growth-related DLC cash flow.”
