Sierra Income Corporation was incorporated on June 13, 2011, and formally commenced operations on April 17, 2012. The Company is an externally managed, non-diversified closed-end management investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company (“BDC”) under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company is externally managed by SIC Advisors LLC. SIC Advisors is a majority owned subsidiary of Medley LLC, which is controlled by Medley Management Inc., a publicly traded asset management firm (NYSE: MDLY), which in turn is controlled by Medley Group LLC, an entity wholly-owned by the senior professionals of Medley LLC.

The Company’s investment objective is to generate current income, and to a lesser extent, long-term capital appreciation. The Company intends to meet its investment objective by investing primarily in the debt of privately owned U.S. companies with a focus on senior secured debt, second lien debt and, to a lesser extent, subordinated debt. As of March 31, 2018, the Company’s portfolio had a fair value of $1.042 billion and consisted 51.4% of senior secured first lien term loans, 21.5% senior secured second lien term loans, 7.2% subordinated notes, 8.0% in a JV with Sierra Senior Loan Strategy JV I LLC, 4.1% in senior secured first lien notes, and 7.7% in equity warrants.

The BDC had quarterly distributions of $0.16 per share and a net asset value of $7.49 per share for Q1 2018. Based upon the public offering price of $8.15 per share, the distribution yield was 7.85% annualized. According to Blue Vault’s Q1 2018 BDC Review, the BDC had an annualized 13.25% yield on equity and 9.25% yield on portfolio.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
