Lago Resort & Casino: Ownership Change

On August 19, 2019 news reports indicate an ownership change has occurred at upstate New York hotel/casino Del Lago. One 50/50 JV partner is buying out the other. By itself that’s not a reason for a post, but with nearby competitor Resorts World Catskills talking “voluntary Chapter 11” , attention is deserved. Note, too, that Moody’s downgraded Del Lago back in January to Caa3.

As of June 2019, only one BDC – PennantPark Floating Rate (PFLT) – has exposure to Del Lago. According to Advantage Data records, the first lien debt has been on the BDC’s books since 2016 and consistently valued close to par. That includes the period after the Moody’s downgrade. Nonetheless, we are adding Del Lago to the under-performing BDC portfolio company list, with an initial Corporate Credit Rating (Watch) of 3 on our 5 point scale.
