Random thoughts on Q2

- No Share buybacks during the quarter
- The company has about $180 m borrowing capacity; There could be additional deals before the end of the year
- The floating rate debt will not be converted into fixed rate and allows the company flexibility to pay down; Going forward fixed rate portion of the debt will increase as they make new acquisitions
- The new model of joint ventures will result in higher fee income; On the other hand currently substantially all of their timberlands are managed by external firms; hmmm
- 2Q experienced market disruptions in mill capacity and it could take till 2018 to resolve the excess inventory; Meaning no price increases for timber in their market till 2018
- during 1H the company has substantially completed all of their yearly timberland sales. expect little sales in 2H
- The higher sales of timber translated into higher EBITDA but are not translating into higher FFO. Why?
- Given existing multiples, the share price appreciation is highly suspect unless the FFO acceleration is visible
