Company Description

Gratia Capital pursues a single-name, fundamental value and event-oriented strategy that focuses on both individual and thematic investment opportunities (long and short) in three main sectors: consumer & services, industrials, and real estate. The firm assesses relative value between equity and credit opportunities on a company-specific, subsector specific (among peer groups), and macro level to identify strong, risk-adjusted investments. They seek to invest opportunistically across the capital structure and may at times employ equity positions as a hedge to credit positions, or vice versa.Gratia looks for long position opportunities that they believe exhibit compelling characteristics that will lead to mark-to-market price appreciation and/or capital return (dividends, interest, etc.). In general, the firm expects to take long positions in companies that are perceived to have stable prospects and attractive, growing free cash flow yields and good valuation multiples. Gratia prefers shorts in businesses that are perceived to have weak or declining business prospects, or business prospects dwarfed by peers, with respect to which Gratia has taken a long position. They may make investments outside of these general criteria depending on valuation and other factors. Investments are primarily focused in the US, although Gratia will opportunistically invest in other developed markets. In non-U.S. markets, Gratia primarily trades equities, and to a limited extent, corporate credit. The most common non-US markets that Gratia trades in include: Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, and Germany. In normal market conditions, the firm targets equity-like returns and, will likely hold more gross equity exposure than gross credit exposure. However, as Gratia seeks to be opportunistic in their weighting of equity versus credit, the proportions could change. In addition, Gratia may borrow money to purchase securities on margin.
