Guru Investment Theses on KKR & Co LP

John Rogers Comments on KKR & Co, - May 09, 2013

We had several stocks with strong returns in the first quarter. Private equity firm KKR & Co. L.P. (KKR) rose +31.84% due to strong fundamentals. Specifically, the company reported fourth quarter 2012 earnings of $0.48 per share versus consensus of $0.21. Its assets under management increased 28% over the past 12 months—up 14% from just the previous quarter. Returns on its private equity portfolio powered the increases, appreciating 24% in 2012—considerably higher than the S&P 500 Index. Originally our thesis held the stock was a bargain because it reflected its fee-based businesses but not carried interest. That inefficiency no longer exists, but now the crowd seems well behind the curve on the company's growth potential. We believe a broad distaste for many types of financial services firms remains in the wake of the Great Recession; in our view, this emotional backlash creates significant opportunities.

From John Rogers’ first quarter 2013 commentary.

Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:KR5.Germany
KKR & Co. L.P. was founded in 1976. The Company's business offers a broad range of asset management services to its investors and provides capital markets services to its firm, its portfolio companies and its clients. As a global alternative asset manager, it earns management, monitoring, transaction and incentive fees for providing investment management, monitoring and other services to its funds, vehicles, managed accounts and portfolio companies, and it generates transaction-specific income from capital markets transactions. It earns additional investment income from investing its own capital alongside its investors and from the carried interest it receives from its funds and certain of its other investment vehicles. A carried interest entitles the sponsor of a fund to a specified percentage of investment gains that are generated on third-party capital that is invested. It operates its business through three business segments: Private Markets; Public Markets; and Capital Markets and Principal Activities. Through its Private Markets segment, it manages and sponsors a group of investment funds and co-investment vehicles that invest capital for long-term appreciation, either through controlling ownership of a company or strategic minority positions. It has also launched an initiative to manage direct investments in natural resources assets, such as oil and natural gas properties, that offer investors exposure to underlying commodity prices, current cash flows from the production of the acquired resources, exposure to commodity prices and thereby a means of hedging inflation. The Company's Public Markets segment is comprised primarily of its fixed income businesses which manage capital in liquid credit strategies, such as leveraged loans and high yield bonds, and less liquid credit products, such as mezzanine debt, special situation assets, rescue financings, distressed assets, debtor-in-possession financings and exit financings. It implements these investment strategies through a specialty finance company and a number of investment funds, structured finance vehicles and separately managed accounts. The Company's Capital Markets and Principal Activities segment combines the assets it acquired in the Combination Transaction with its global capital markets business. The Company's capital markets business supports its firm, its portfolio companies and its clients by providing services such as arranging debt and equity financing for transactions, placing and underwriting securities offerings, structuring new investment products and providing capital markets advice. It competes with other asset managers for both investors and investment opportunities. The Company's operations are subject to regulation and supervision in a number of jurisdictions.
