It's not often you get a bid offer below cash! That just about sums up the continual value destruction at this company.esmith3

Massively illiquid and any buys will jump it up. Worth remembering that everyone ie board, Winton and IKOS payed/were payed at way above current price. So either they've written off the money or they expect to gain in a big way by Bertarelli diluting them down.rambutan2

Hadn't realised how hardcore the Bertarelli family are:- http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/10/billionaires-2009-richest-people_Ernesto-Bertarelli-Family_9JAA.htmlhorndean eagle

0.5% Management fee on $45.5m = %227,500 = £151,000 towards £475,000 Admin expenses. ESA Global Futures Fund is up 40% since start,and appears to be up over 20% in last 12 months Perhaps this is over the high water mark and will generate a performance fee ? 10% of the ?$4m above a ?10% watermark would be nice.boxwellian

Also nice to see that Global Future is doing ok in the current environment. Up 4% for the week and now back at record high NAV. Should help in the marketing effort especially with most other hedge fund strategies struggling in the current environment. Not sure about the future strategy of the company though. Can't see too many new deals on the horizon.nickcduk

at last... 19 October 2007 Global Futures Fund Gains Approval In Switzerland Alpha Strategic plc ("Alpha" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that the ESA Global Futures Fund ("the Fund") has received approval under proviso from the Swiss financial regulator. Following execution of agreed amendments to the Fund's marketing documentation the Fund can be fully marketed and distributed in Switzerland. In May 2006, Alpha acquired Winton Advisers Limited (now renamed Alpha Winton Limited "AWL") from Winton Capital Management Limited ("Winton Capital"), the $10bn London hedge fund manager. AWL is entitled to 50% of the management and performance fees on the ESA Global Futures Fund, a Luxembourg based fund aimed at the Swiss institutional market, payable quarterly. The Fund is managed by Winton Capital and is being charged an annual management fee of 1% of net assets and an annual performance fee of 20% of the increase in the net asset value subject to a high water mark. Since May 2006, without marketing, funds under management have grown from $11.5 million to $45.5 million and return on the Fund since inception (March 2006) has been 16.47%. Colin Barrow, Chairman of Alpha commented: "This is another step forward for Alpha. We believe that the expansion of marketing combined with Winton's highly respected and successful investment process will significantly increase funds under management towards the initial target of $100 million."rambutan2

AFS have done ok during recent turbulence. The fund is up about 8% in euro terms since launch. Volatility has been pretty low as well which will help quell redemptions. We need further news on new deals to get this one going. Hopefully we might get some news with next set of results.nickcduk

"Winton Advisors Limited is entitled to 50% of the management and incentive fees generated from The ESA Global Futures Fund in exchange for certain advisory services. This equates to approximately 0.5% of funds under management and 10% of profits, subject to a number of performance conditions." On $40m thats £100,000pa contribution to Admin expenses of £475,000. Hopefully growing to £250,000pa before anything from the profit share part.boxwellian

agree nick, it's slightly worrying that it's taking so long, as once up and running fully it acts as a showcase for idea. still, we ain't going to run out of money and as you say collin barrow sounds upbeat enough. i will make some enquiries.rambutan2

I had expected profitability by now, but they seem to have issues with getting the marketing approval. That will come soon enough hopefully. What will finally get us moving is another hedge fund signing on the dotted line. Colin Barrow seemed pretty bullish about getting them on board so lets hope the wait isn't too long.nickcduk

Interim Results for the 6 months ended 30th September 2006 Financial Highlights * First acquisition of Winton Advisors completed. * First income received. * Strong growth in funds under management up 300% since acquisition. * Net assets up 8%. * Loss per share held at previous low levels. * Healthy cash balance maintained at #2.4 million. * Forecast to turn cash generative in first half 2007. To obtain a copy of this report, and for comprehensive information on the Company and its directors, please visit our website at: www.alphastrategic.co.uk Chairman's Statement The past six months have been an exciting time for the Company. Our first acquisition took longer than many expected, but this was a result of our stated aim of partnering only with managers of the very highest quality. Alpha's objective is to achieve a blend of income from managers using different strategies, but it is a prerequisite that they are first class at what they do. We completed our first transaction with Winton Capital Management Limited in May through the acquisition of Winton Advisors Limited. This has provided us with a strong foundation for future transactions. These accounts show the first fruits of that acquisition Fee income has now started to flow from the Global Futures Fund and we believe it will grow rapidly over the coming months. We continue to await approval from the regulators for more public distribution of the fund in Switzerland. However, I note that despite the current limits on marketing, assets in the fund have grown from $11.5 million to over $34 million since we completed the transaction. Additionally the manager has shown solid performance during the period and we believe it is likely we should receive more incentive fees in the second half. We continue to pursue a number of promising conversations with other high quality hedge fund managers. The Company has successfully contained costs during the period and has maximized its income from our healthy cash balances. There has been much talk about M&A in the industry over the last year, however few transactions have materialised, and even fewer involving public companies. Alpha has a unique business model that has been carefully designed to address issues for hedge fund managers while building stable revenue for shareholders. We have been very encouraged by our progress in the last six months. With the growth in funds under management combined with continuing performance levels from Winton, we anticipate being able to report that we have become cash generative in the first half of 2007. Colin Barrow, Chairman. 14th December 2006 http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200612150700209333Nrambutan2

so, perhaps that at least part of the recent rise. for the record, they bought them at 110p ie right on the offer, on 27/09/06. there was a 95k deal at 109p on same day, so perhaps that the seller, although bid price was 105p... Alpha Strategic was notified on 6 October 2006, that following the purchase of 100,000 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ('Ordinary Shares') on 27 September 2006, Auvergne & Bourgogne have an interest in 100,000 Ordinary Shares representing approximately 3.02 per cent. of the issued ordinary share capital. haven't a clue who it/they are though.rambutan2
