LONDON (Alliance News) – Caribbean Investment Holdings Ltd on Wednesday reported a drop in profit due to an unfavourable court judgement.

Caribbean Investment is a holding company and has no business outside its subsidiary investments, which include Belize Bank Ltd.

The firm’s pretax profit for the six months ended September 30 was USD8.7 million, down from GBP11.2 million the year before.

The London Court of International Arbitration awarded BZD37.0 million, or GBP14.5 million, to Caribbean Investment at an interest rate of 17% per annum. A Caribbean court judgement subsequently lowered that interest rate to the statutory rate of 6%.

Consequently, Caribbean Investment’s interest income during the period shrank to USD16.3 million from USD20.8 million.

The firm’s allowance for loan losses was USD1.3 million, slightly below its USD1.4 million loan loss allowance the year before.

“Similar to prior year’s results, the allowance for loan losses reflects a credit balance as the company reported a reversal of allowances for the six months ended September 30,” said Caribbean Investment.

This was attributed to “better than expected recoveries from the sale of collateral”.

Shares in Caribbean Investment closed down 5.6% on Wednesday at 16.05 pence.

The Morningstar Star Rating for Stocks is assigned based on an analyst’s estimate of a stocks fair value. It is projection/opinion and not a statement of fact. Morningstar assigns star ratings based on an analyst’s estimate of a stock’s fair value. Four components drive the Star Rating: (1) our assessment of the firm’s economic moat, (2) our estimate of the stock’s fair value, (3) our uncertainty around that fair value estimate and (4) the current market price. This process culminates in a single-point star rating that is updated daily. A 5-star represents a belief that the stock is a good value at its current price; a 1-star stock isn’t. If our base-case assumptions are true the market price will converge on our fair value estimate over time, generally within three years. Investments in securities are subject to market and other risks. Past performance of a security may or may not be sustained in future and is no indication of future performance.
