The Spin-Off Report monitors the progress of all U.S. spin-offs from announcement date through when-issued trading, and continues coverage through the first quarter of trading. The Spin-Off Calendar, published monthly, monitors the status of every pending transaction, and “Flash” reports are published to inform clients of new spin-off announcements and any significant developments with spin-offs in queue. The service provides comprehensive research reports with fair value estimates on both the spin-off and parent company prior to divestiture. The Spin-Off Radar Screen, also published monthly, provides an overview of companies determined by our analysis to be potential spin-off candidates. Clients also receive the Bits & Pieces report; a monthly supplement to the service that identifies mispriced stub securities, tracking stocks and other arbitrage opportunities. The Spin-Off Compendium provides Murray Stahl with an effective forum to discuss the market environment for spin-offs as well investment ideas outside the traditional spin-off space, such as carve-outs, tracking stocks, and spin-offs that have fallen out of favor with investors.
Additionally, all subscribers to the Spin-Off Report receive access to our web-based spin-off tracker, which provides an updated and concise view into the entire spin-off pipeline from announcement, through the when-issued period and into regular way trading. The share prices for parent companies and spin-offs are displayed for each transaction, compared to our fair values and shown as trading at a discount or premium.
The European Spin-Off & Restructuring Report provides comprehensive coverage of every European spin-off situation, as well as other restructurings and special situations. Coverage may include carve-outs, minority stake distributions, as well as non-divestiture situations such as activist led-turnarounds and management changes. Coverage of each spin-off begins upon announcement and continues through the first quarter of trading. Within several hours of a spin-off announcement, a summary and initial valuation report is published. A comprehensive analysis of each spin-off is typically published months before the share distribution occurs, providing fair value estimates for the pre-spin company and each entity after distribution. A monthly Calendar monitors the status of every pending spin-off as well as other situations under coverage. The Compendium provides an effective forum for Murray Stahl to discuss these situations, and broad investment themes. The European Radar Screen, also published monthly, provides an overview of European companies determined by our analysis to be potential break-up candidates.
