A longtime long-term care insurance (LTCI) distributor has succeeded at converting a pool of LTCI commission receivables into cash.
LTC Global Inc. worked through KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. to create securities backed by the commission receivables. KeyBanc then helped LTC Global sell the securities to seven institutional investors.
Winston & Strawn LLP, a law firm, served as the securitization legal advisor.
The deal had a value of $129.6 million, according to LTC Global.

LTC Global has filed an accounting report related to the securitization with the U.S. Securities and Commission. A copy of the report is available here.
Accountants at Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd. say in the report that they reviewed a sample of 125 insurance commission receivables from a statistical data file that contained information on 330,444 insurance commission receivables.
Two of the receivables indicated a commission rate of 3% and one indicated a commission rate of 5%, according to a description of a few data file samples that conflicted with the underlying receivables documents.
