Capital Southwest Corporation (NASDAQ:CSWC) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at National Securities. They currently have a $22.00 target price on the stock. The analysts wrote, “• For the quarter ending 3/31/18, we model a $50.0 million gross issuance of 5.75% baby bonds by CSWC. We expect that the company will be able to price these tighter than recent issues by peers with substantial credit issues and far riskier loan books.

• The issuance we model will likely be used to pay down the credit facility balance as well as fund some new investments. Concomitantly, we expect the credit facility to be upsized to $150 million (from $100 million currently) and the spread above LIBOR to decline to 275 bps from 325 bps currently.

• Subsequent to the baby bond issuance, we model the company to continue to ramp balance sheet leverage until fiscal 4Q19 when we forecast a $75.0 million gross equity issuance completed at a 20% premium to trailing quarter NAV/share.

• All told, we expect that CSWC has ample dry powder for very strong portfolio growth. The dry powder, combined with the ability of the company to toggle between both LMM (lower middle market) and UMM (upper middle market) loans bodes well for consistent quarterly portfolio growth without sacrificing underwriting quality, as we see it.

• We model the portfolio at fair value to finish fiscal 2018 and 2019 at $365.0 million and $499.8 million, respectively, from $306.6 million as of 6/30/17.

• We are revising our fiscal 2018 core NII/share estimate to $1.11 from $1.07 and our fiscal 2019 core NII/share estimate to $1.47 from $1.33. “
