Bonhoeffer Capital Management’s Q1 2019 Investor Letter

Bonhoeffer Capital Management is a Rochester, New York-based long-only value-oriented investment partnership owned by Willow Oak Asset Management, a subsidiary of Sitestar Corporation. Its Bonhoeffer Fund was launched in July 2017, and it is managed by Keith Smith, a CFA charterholder, who has more than 20 years of professional experience in investing. Previously, he worked as a Managing Director of a valuation firm, where he sharpened his investment skills in distressed loan and corporate transactions.

Bonhoeffer Fund mainly invests in companies with market capitalizations from $100 million to $500 million, relying on long-only, concentrated, value-oriented investment principles, covering not only the US but also the UK and other emerging markets. Recently, Bonhoeffer Capital Management released its Q1 2019 Investor Letter, a copy of which you can download below. Among other things, the fund reported a return of 4.0% net of fees in the quarter, underperforming its international benchmark, MSCI ACWI ex-US, which posted 10.5% gains for the same quarter.

Dear Partner,

Bonhoeffer returned 4.0% net of fees in Q1 2019, compared to 10.5% for the MSCI ACWI ex-US, an international benchmark. As of March 31st, our securities have an average earnings/free cash flow yield of 20.0% and an average EV/EBITDA of 3.3. The difference between the portfolio’s market valuation and my estimate of intrinsic value is at one of the largest gaps since inception. I do not know when this gap will close but, over time, the gap should converge.

As we settle into spring after a harsh winter in terms of both the weather and the financial markets, I am hopeful that the rest of 2019 will be more stable than the past six months.
