The Board felt it wanted to wanted to protect the fund from any potential shortfall if the current investment disposal programme failed to free up sufficient cash to meet the previous repayment deadline. CDI’s debt is now £49.1m. There is a 40% loan-to-value covenant under the terms of the new notes. CDI’s LTV, using portfolio values as at 30 June 2013, is 21.5%. The attraction of using US$ funding is that it matches the currency exposure of CDI’s largest asset, Expro International.
