2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Banks » Specialty Finance
Compare:HKXCY, WU, ASXFY, CIT, TREE » details
Traded in other countries:K1C.Germany
KKR Financial Corp. is a Delaware limited liability company and was organized on January 17, 2007. It is a specialty finance company with expertise in a range of asset classes. The Company's core business strategy is to leverage the proprietary resources of its manager with the objective of generating both current income and capital appreciation by deploying capital to its strategies, which include bank loans and high yield securities, natural resources, special situations, mezzanine, commercial real estate and private equity. The Company's holdings across these strategies primarily consist of below investment grade syndicated corporate loans, also known as leveraged loans, high yield debt securities, private equity and working and royalty interests in oil and gas properties. The corporate loans that the Company holds are purchased via assignment or participation in the primary or secondary market. The majority of the Company's holdings consist of corporate loans and high yield debt securities held in collateralized loan obligation ("CLO") transactions that are structured as on-balance sheet securitizations and are used as long term financing for the Company's investments in corporate debt. The senior secured debt issued by the CLO transactions is generally owned by unaffiliated third party investors and the Company owns the majority of the mezzanine and subordinated notes in the CLO transactions. The Company executes its core business strategy through its majority-owned subsidiaries, including CLOs. The Company's objective is to provide long-term value for its shareholders by generating an attractive total return through cash distributions and increased share price. It seeks to achieve its objective by deploying capital opportunistically across capital structures and asset classes. The Company competes with financial companies, public and private funds, commercial and investment banks and commercial finance companies.
