Guru Investment Theses on Dex Media Inc

Francis Chou Comments on Dex Media Inc. - Mar 11, 2014

Not every large holding worked out in 2013. R.H. Donnelley’s term loan was down from 68.90 cents on a dollar to 61.20 on a dollar as of December 31, 2013. We bought into it as we believed it was well covered by its earning power, assets, and covenants that are protective to debt holders. In addition, this term loan comes with a cash flow sweep, which means that any free cash flow remaining after all operational needs are met can be used to buy back debt at par from its holders. In April 2013, SuperMedia Inc. and Dex One Corporation, the parent company of R.H. Donnelley and Dex Media West, completed their merger, creating Dex Media, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXM) — one of the largest national providers of social, local and mobile marketing solutions through direct relationships with local businesses. Dex Media estimates it will realize approximately $150-$175 million in cost savings by 2015, and expects to preserve Dex One’s remaining tax attributes of roughly $1.8 billion, which can be used to offset income attributable to the combined company following the completion of the transaction. We continue to believe that at current prices, R.H Donnelley is underpriced.
