How To Make Money From The Quartet And Pangaea Merger
- QTET commons virtually guarantees a 2.6% upside since common holders (d.o.r: 8/27/14) can convert their shares for a cash premium regardless of whether the merger is approved.
- A theoretical 104% return may be achieved by buying QTETU, although the security is very illiquid and the spread is wide, making this strategy very difficult to execute.
- The biggest risk is the short-term price Holdco/PANL will immediately trade at once the merger is approved; Rosenfeld's previous SPAC deals show that prices held steady in the short-term.
Quartet: Joel Greenblatt Writes A Blank Check For Pangaea Logistics
- Joel Greenblatt is an initial stockholder and special advisor to Quartet, a blank check company that plans to merge with Pangaea Logistics, a maritime logistics provider.
- Pangaea Logistics displays many of the characteristics one would expect from a Joel Greenblatt investment. Sector market leadership, high return on equity, experienced management and attractive growth prospects.
- Quartet’s management highlight that there is a significant valuation gap between the price they are paying for Pangaea Logistics and its publicly traded peers. We estimate about 28% upside potential.
- Key catalysts to unlock value include the successful completion of the merger, growing investor awareness and Pangaea Logistics achieving its net income targets, in particular for 2014E.
- This opportunity should start to realize material upside in the near term, with limited downside risk due to an attractive entry price versus Quartet's current cash balance and the post-merger valuation.
