Market developments per 2020-04-30

At a return of 12.2% in April, KOF underperformed versus the GPR Dutch Small Cap Index, which was up by 15.5%. In the first four months of this year, the KOF’s Net Asset Value (NAV) decreased by 16.0% compared to a drop of 20.0% for its benchmark. The fund has realised an average annual return of 0.2% over the past three years.

April witnessed the publication of extreme macro-economic data. The number of people claiming unemployment benefit in the US grew by 4-5 million each week in April and currently stands at 30 million new jobless claims since the COVID-19 outbreak started. The oil price is at an all-time low and the prices of a number of less liquid variants even dipped below zero. Finally, at -6.8% first quarter economic growth in China was at its lowest level in forty years. Equity markets around the world rallied in spite of the flood of negative macro-economic data. Financial markets are deriving hope from the fact that the data on new COVID-19 cases, hospital admissions and fatalities are slowly coming down again in many countries and that some countries are tentatively easing their lockdown restrictions. Moreover, Gilead reported positive test results for a vaccine against COVID-19, which offers the prospect of a return to normality in the long term.

Portfolio developments per 2020-04-30

The largest increases to positions in the KOF portfolio in April were to Signify and SBM Offshore. The biggest sales were Intertrust and ForFarmers. We also sold our entire position in Just EatTakeaway (JET), given that JET’s market capitalisation means it is no longer a small cap. Other positions were adjusted based on changes to the model portfolio driven by valuations and upward potential.

At the end of April, Blackstone announced that its acquisition of NIBC was subject to two uncertainties which could potentially derail the deal. In line with recommendations from the De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), NIBC announced that it would not pay its proposed final dividend over 2019 of €0.53 in the first half of 2020. This means that Blackstone has insufficient funding at its disposal. However, this involves a relatively small shortfall compared to the total transaction value of €1.3 billion and we expect there to be enough options available for offering the buyer the prospect of receiving this dividend in future or adjusting the offer accordingly. In addition, Blackstone notes that the original business plans took no account of the impact of COVID-19, which could result in the supervisory authorities rejecting the deal. NIBC’s management has scrapped its targets for 2020 and as expected the bank will be adversely affected by COVID-19 in the short term, but this could in fact yield opportunities in the long term for a tightly-structured and solidly-funded bank such as NIBC. For now all the parties are in talks aimed at reaching a solution no later than 19 May, the deadline for publishing the offering memorandum. We believe that Blackstone is seeking an opening for negotiating a lower offer, but a deal remains a realistic option and it is now chiefly up to the supervisory authorities.

FlowTraders succeeded in easily surpassing even the high expectations analysts had of its first quarter results. It was not just the market conditions, such as volatility, that were extremely positive for Flow Traders. The company’s IT systems and processes for controlling risk also proved to be robust, allowing Flow Traders to be continuously active on the market, in contrast to some of its competitors. Although average volatility halved to 41 in April from the peak of 82 in mid-March, this level is still more than twice the average for January and February (13 and 19 respectively). It is unlikely that Flow Traders will beat its record first quarter result, but market conditions in the second quarter have so far continued to be favourable for Flow Traders.

Corbion reported better-than-expected results over the first quarter and reiterated its targets for 2020. The company reported a lower-than-expected loss on its incubator activities, which are mainly focused on developing an alternative to Omega 3 from algae. Furthermore, in the first quarter Corbion profited from the fact that COVID-19 has led consumers to buy large quantities of long-life bread and meat for which Corbion supplies the ingredients. For the time being we see this trend as temporary, but we do view the new CEO’s more radical intervention in the loss-making incubator division as positive.

Kempen's vision & mission

Kempen Capital Management is an asset manager that believes in stewardship and investment focusing on the long-term for the benefit of all stakeholders. Value creation is at the heart of the services we provide to our clients. We believe that being an engaged shareholder on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and retaining a long-term focus, is critical to helping our clients to preserve and create sustainable wealth that has positive real world impact and economic returns.

Kempen wide approach to responsible investment

We are committed to create sustainable alpha. The four pillars of our ESG-policy are:

  • ESG integration: Ensuring sustainability risks and opportunities are adequately considered in our investment analysis and processes.

  • Exclusion & avoidance: Not investing in companies involved in controversial activities or conduct.

  • Active ownership: Being responsible stewards of our clients’ capital and using our influence through engagement and voting to improve corporate behaviour on specific ESG issues and achieve positive change

  • Positive impact: Investing with an objective to achieve positive real world outcomes and impact, such as contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Â

To put our mission and vision into practice we engage with our investee companies on a wide array of strategic, financial, and ESG topics. As an active owner we use our influence to improve our investee companies’ ESG performance.  This helps us address some of the most pressing and important sustainability issues facing business and the world. Our focus themes for engagement are: human rights, labour rights, climate change and governance.

Â

Through collaboration with other investors and industry think tanks we contribute to the development of principles and standards of corporate responsibility both at sector levels, as well as investee company level.

Â

Our full voting records are available here.

Our fund approach to responsible investment

Kempen’s ESG policy is fully implemented in our fund’s investment process across the three relevant pillars of: Exclusion, ESG integration and Active ownership

Â

The Kempen Orange Fund (KOF) N.V. invests in smaller and medium-sized Dutch companies that are included in the GPR Dutch Small Cap Index. The fund can also invest in Dutch and Belgian companies which are not included in the Index, provided that their market capitalisation is less than €5 billion at the time of purchase. KOF positions itself as a long-term engaged shareholder. We engage with our investee companies on a regular basis. These engagements include, but are certainly not limited to, our voting instructions at the company’s AGM. We always vote the shares of investee companies and if necessary attend annual meetings to stress our discussion points to management, potentially in collaboration with other stakeholders.

Â

The figure 'ESG integration in the investment process' is a step-by-step illustration of how Kempen’s ESG policy is integrated in the fund’s investment process.

Â

1. Exclusion

The fund excludes investment in entities involved in the production tobacco and of controversial weapons, such as cluster munitions, anti-personnel mines, nuclear warheads, chemical and biological weapons.

Â

2. ESG integration

In the fundamental analysis phase, we dive deeper into the ESG characteristics of a company. During the process we focus on each company on a case by case basis looking at the material risks in that specific industry and the firm’s exposure, practices and disclosure. In this phase we use various data sources, including MSCI ESG Research and Sustainalytics. If our opinion deviates from the external ESG research providers we explain why. Furthermore we look into the company’s exposure to controversies and opportunities which could reduce or increase our ESG score. Based on the above analysis we form an opinion on the quality of a company’s ESG profile and give each company a score (1-5). A lower score would require a higher upside potential to be included in the portfolio.

Â

3. Active ownership

As active long-term investors we perform comprehensive engagements with our portfolio companies. We strongly believe that our level of engagement with our portfolio companies is much deeper compared to our competitors. We frequently speak with the management teams of our portfolio companies. Each controversial item, as well as every individual engagement, is well-documented. We monitor the progress the company is making and continue to use our influence to create positive change.

Â

Exercising our voting rights is also an essential part of our responsible investment philosophy. We are actively engaging with our portfolio companies and make remarks on the agenda of annual and extraordinary meetings. We often attend annual meetings in person to stress our discussion points towards management, sometimes in collaboration with other stakeholders.

Â

Kempen’s ESG Team also performs a quarterly screen on our portfolio and may propose engagement with low ESG performers. The results of this screening are discussed in a separate meeting and an action list is created based on the outcomes of this meeting.
