Maiden Holdings Ltd (MHLD) Gets a Hold Rating from B.Riley FBR
B.Riley FBR analyst Randy Binner reiterated a Hold rating on Maiden Holdings Ltd (MHLD) today and set a price target of $1. The company’s shares closed on Friday at $0.56, close to its 52-week low of $0.47.
“We have updated our pro forma balance sheet and run-off analysis for Maiden (MHLD—Neutral, $1.00 PT) based on the 10-Q filing on August 9, 2019. While there are a number of puts and takes in the reported numbers, we net out with a similar view of the equity having positive value. The operating loss in 2Q19 moved retained earnings -$15M due to the $16.7M MRNA sale close charge, but the bond portfolio saw another +$24M mark on lower interest rates. The operating loss again highlights the risk of MHLD remaining in business and potentially eroding the equity base over time. Reserve development in 2Q19 was $26M and was attributed to the 2015-2018 commercial auto accident years.”
