|I'm hoping to get back 95% in the first payout. Just depends on what it's 95% of.
NAV has barely moved in recent days, which suggests the portfolio may have already been liquidated (he says hoping). Costs should be no more than 0.25p.|
|Good luck! The "..Significant percentage.." is what I'm wondering about - is that 75%, 90%, 95%? The liquidator fees are low, and when I last looked through the holdings, only a handful looked problematic - they'd cleaned the portfolio up a fair bit.
Still - there's always some things that appear well traded/liquid, until you come to sell even a relatively small number.
Isn't a big position for me but it's been a great run, inc the divi.|
|I picked up 250k on Friday at 16p, so hoping for a very quick turn!|
|Wasn't sure at first, but I think it's the right call. Be interesting to see what % of NAV gets returned in the first tranche, and how much we have to wait until the end of the year for.|
|So good-bye NCE.|
|I've been directed here, and am now minded to vote in favour:
Eg co is only £10m, winding up costs expected to be only £80k (with £100k contingency), and:
"...The Liquidators have indicated that they expect to make an initial cash distribution to Shareholders in
April 2017 and that they expect this to represent a significant percentage of the Company's net
assets at that time. The precise timing of the final cash distribution to Shareholders is uncertain,
but it is expected that this process will be completed by the end of 2017."|
|Trading suspended on 7th March.
If approved, listing cancelled 8th March.
Initial distribution on or around 28th April.
(I've voted against winding up)|
|Should be fine in SIPP - timescale is a question I intend to ask them. I've been stuck in things that have taken years in the past, I'm still in one after 7 years. Getting most of it back early isn't usually a problem - it's those final few holdings, perhaps delisted themselves, that cause the problem.|
|Of course if they do wind up, we won't be hostage to the silly spread. So something in between bid and offer at least?|
|So if it's approved they'll delist straight away. Does anyone have any experience in similar circumstances? How long will it take for the wind up to take effect? Also I have these in a sipp can they hold delisted investments?|
|Vote on 7th March. NAV still at 18p. Not sure I can form an opinion on the wind-up and cash return until I know how close to NAV they'll get - will surely be some haircut for the illiquid stuff. If that's say a 20% haircut, I'm quite happy with the co staying as it is.
Will hopefully be able to speak to the managers before the 7th.|
|NAV crept over 18p.|
|The investment advisor's report is quite bullish.|
|Thanks, missed that. Still feels like they're giving up just as recovery is in sight, but I'd take the cash.|
|Look at the news tab. Details about EGM and proposed winding up.|
|@pherrom - if we get 16.5p back (latest NAV 17.07p, 15p might be more realistic), the shares got down to 9p, so that's almost doubling the share price from low, if not the NAV. :)|
|tiltonboy, you're right, it hasn't; I misread the figures from Morningstar.|
I can't see that the NAV has doubled this year!|
|@coolen - a rollover into say CYN perhaps should be on offer, I agree.|
|The cap is too small, fund performance too poor to justify the management fee and the directors pays. Winding up is perhaps the best option.|
|The net asset value has doubled this year, so you never know.|
|Were the majority of long-term holders facing a CGT liability on liquidation, there may have been the additional possibility of a roll-over Offer.
Sadly, I doubt if this is the case with New City, but there's always a chance.|
|Fair point @coolen - and frankly, if they get anywhere near NAV then I shan't be complaining. I'll be voting with the directors.|
|I agree with Pherrom, but I suspect this reflects the dis-proportionate red tape required to run a small investment trust these days.|
