[video] Quick Take: OCI's High-Yield IPO

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Dividend yields of 10% are hard enough for established public companies to pay out, let alone those that are just coming public.

But one company that is going public plans to offer such a dividend, as Francis Gaskins, research director at, discussed with TheStreet's Debra Borchardt.

OCI Resources plans to trade under the ticker symbol "OCIR" and is looking to raise $100 million in its public offering, with shares priced between $19 to $21.

The company's dividend is expected to yield around 10%, a rather lofty ratio. However, Gaskins said it's achievable for the 50-year-old company.

He added that it pays out a lot of cash and that a look at its 12-month projections makes it seem reasonable that the company can cover the minimum dividend payout, which would be about $39.9 million, based on a 10% yield.

Although Hi-Crush Partners (HCLP - Get Report) is a related company and yields less (8.1%), Gaskins said it's because OCI Resources likely has less growth potential, with plant capacity operations at 96% to 97%.

He concluded that the company will likely draw some strong interest from the retail investor and perhaps even some institutional investors as well.
