Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 maggio 2019

ICR Publishes Guide to a Successful Special Purpose Acquisition Company

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 maggio 2019

ICR, a leading strategic communications and advisory firm, today announced the release of ICR’s Guide to a Successful SPAC. This primer update for SPACs provides an overview of the SPAC market, explains how and where SPACs typically list, which investment banks work on these IPOs, the emerging interest of institutional investors, and the unique communications challenges for executing a successful transaction or “de-SPACing.” SPACs, formed to raise capital in an initial public offering with the purpose of identifying and acquiring one or more operating companies, are generally given up to two years to complete a successful business combination.“SPACs are attracting higher quality acquisition targets and more private equity firms are willing to take back roll-over equity as part of consideration in the deal. Yet structurally, SPACs still provide the business seller with more liquidity than a typical IPO,” said Don Duffy, President of ICR. “As the deal size grows, we are also seeing increased institutional investor participation in these transactions.”
More than 70 public SPACs hold approximately $20 billion in cash and have not yet completed acquisitions. In the first quarter of 2019 alone, 14 SPACs raised over $3 billion, almost exceeding the issuance from all other types of IPOs combined.The de-SPAC process begins once the SPAC announces its proposed acquisition, representing the start of a high-stakes, condensed timeline to complete the transaction.To be successful, SPACs need an experienced team that understands the de-SPACing process, the industry, and the challenges related to announcing an acquisition and the shareholder vote process. In addition, an important, but often overlooked, aspect of the communications strategy is to begin to transition the narrative from the SPAC sponsor’s messaging to the go-forward business strategy.

AM Best Revises Outlooks to Stable for Mountain Life Insurance Company

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 14 aprile 2019

AM Best has revised the outlooks to stable from negative and affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of B+ (Good) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bbb-” of Mountain Life Insurance Company (Mountain Life) (Lexington, KY).The Credit Ratings (ratings) reflect Mountain Life’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as strong, as well as its marginal operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.The revised outlooks to stable from negative reflect the continued progress regarding the integration of Mountain Life into the Kentucky National Insurance Group (Kentucky National). At this time, AM Best’s concern over execution risk leading to a deterioration in Mountain Life’s ratings has been reduced based on discussions with the new management team and Mountain Life’s results since the time of the transaction close in early 2018. AM Best has held discussions with the new management team related to business plans, strategy, and the integration of Mountain Life into the Kentucky National organization. Mountain Life’s ratings continue to be supported by solid risk-adjusted capitalization, as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), and its strong liquidity afforded by the company’s conservative investment portfolio. Offsetting factors include Mountain Life’s modest overall earnings and declining premium trends, and its concentrated business profile in the credit insurance arena. AM Best will continue to monitor Kentucky National’s business plan for Mountain Life and the company’s ability to carry out its stated plans and projections.

AM Best Downgrades Credit Ratings of Atlanta Life Insurance Company

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 marzo 2019

AM Best has downgraded the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) to C+ (Marginal) from C++ (Marginal) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) to “b-” from “b+” of Atlanta Life Insurance Company (ALIC) (Atlanta, GA). The outlook of the FSR has been revised to negative from stable while the outlook of the Long-Term ICR remains negative. ALIC is the life insurance member of Atlanta Life Financial Group, Inc. (ALFG) and is the only remaining active entity within the group.The ratings reflect ALIC’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as adequate, as well as its weak operating performance, very limited business profile and weak enterprise risk management.The rating downgrades reflect ALIC’s significant operating losses in 2017 and 2018 despite a onetime favorable benefit due to the merger of the company’s two retirement plans, which removed the pension liability from ALIC’s financial statements once the plans were combined. Despite the plan merger, ALIC still remained liable in the unlikely event that the plans assets were insufficient to fund its liabilities. On a normalized basis, excluding the onetime pension gain and a onetime write-off of a reinsurance contract, operating losses reflect high expenses, unfavorable investment yields and the impact of a contracting balance sheet. The write-off of the reinsurance contract, although modest in terms of operating results, is reflected in AM Best’s ERM assessment of weak given the lack of an adequate risk-control framework, which must be addressed going forward by the new chief financial officer and chief executive officer.Despite the company retaining a favorable risk-adjusted capital position, the overall balance sheet assessment continues to be stressed by a low level of absolute capital as the result of a write-off of an inter-company receivable from ALFG, a lack of liquidity, high reinsurance leverage and unfavorable cash-flow testing results. While the balance sheet assessment remains adequate and within AM Best’s prior expectations, the company’s operating cash flows are negative and AM Best anticipates that if the company’s ambitious business plans are not realized, future risk-adjusted capitalization levels likely will continue to decline over time given the expense structure of the company. Management has laid out substantial business development plans with a focus on assuming group life insurance business from new and existing carrier relationships, which promotes its marketing advantage as an African-American reinsurance carrier. AM Best notes that projected premium levels substantially exceed historical norms and will be a challenge to achieve. As a result, ALIC’s business profile assessment remains very limited with a noted lack of historical data quality, virtually no new business growth, limited market share and limited product diversification.

How Breezy Swim Became the Fastest Growing Swimwear Company in America

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 luglio 2018

In an age where swimwear is typically reserved for thinner and younger females, it tends to leave other females feeling body shamed. This inspired the founders of a Miami-based Swimwear Company to do something about it. Kris Izquierdo and his girlfriend, Tanya Barahona, had always wanted to start a business that made people feel confident and better about themselves. The only problem was that they were living in two separate states at the time. They knew that creating a new business would not only allow them to raise the money to be able to live together, but it would allow them to help others feel confident in the process. Both 22 years old and bouncing from job to job they took a leap of faith and went all in with their idea. In April of 2018 they started their new Miami-based swimwear company called “Breezy Swim.” Their mission was simple, to launch a swimwear company that empowers all women to feel confident in any swimsuit, regardless of age or body shape. The young couple knew they were onto a great idea when they started this business. All they needed was a catchy slogan to attract people’s attention and generate their first sales. “Every body is a bikini body” became the slogan they decided on for the company. They were now well on their way to getting their first sale, when they soon realized they had limited funds left for marketing. So the young couple decided to market their new slogan and swimwear on social media. Once they did, it changed their lives forever. In just 3 months, their Instagram account went from having 0 followers to having over 65,000 followers. “We want females to feel confident in any swimwear, regardless of age or body shape,” the founders state on their website. “Breezy Swim caters to all shapes and sizes inspired by women globally. Our swimwear gives us the chance for women to feel their best and to take on the world, no matter where they come from!”Since Breezy Swim’s website first launched, it has sold more than 10,000 swimsuits to a global customer base. This has generated the company more than $350,000 in sales within its first financial quarter.

Plymouth Rock intends to offer auto and home insurance policies to new customers in New York later this year, pending regulatory approval. The company has a 35-year history of providing exceptional service and innovative products and features to its customers, including the Crashbusters® mobile claims vans, Door to Door Valet Claim Service® and its Pledge of Assurance®.“Plymouth Rock was founded on the idea that our customers should come first,” said Hal Belodoff, President of The Plymouth Rock Company. “As we continue to grow, which is evidenced by our recent entrance into New York and Pennsylvania, and further expansion in New Jersey, our mission stays the same. We focus on new ways to improve our customers’ experience when it comes to insurance.”
