Thank you. I will try but suspect I wont have the inclination to do so if it is worth nothing.

Skyship / Praipus this is debatable - listed holdings ex anchor free are about £1.68 a share - OK I havent allowed for iliquidity of bigger holdings but also have not taken into account value of a controling stake in these various businesses. So Anchor free only needs to be worth half what it is listed at in the accounts for you to get your money back. It must be at least that or whats the point in the valuation - Goldman paid what its listed at a couple of years ago and in statements says lower end of independent valuer's range. Half is more than achievable. So if I invest now I almost certainly get my money back and I buy a good probability of a gain from 0% to 29% (at book) to beyond. (I havent adjusted for latest RNS but figures are basically sound). Tech market is relatively hot right now so I would hope buyers would be out there - it wouldnt be me as it isnt the sort of thing I am into but as a short term punt I am prepared to take a chance on this. I am not sure this is value investing at its most pure but there is logic here...

Top five holdings AnchorFree, Inc. (Private): 45.0% of net assets, Primary Industry Group: Internet Software & Services AnchorFree is the world's leading advertising and subscription supported virtual private network. ======================== P - To buy here you've got to be very sure you have a good handle as to whether AF is worth the valuation. VPNs seem to be under attack by Governments talking of internet terrorism concerns; and very little barrier to entry.

Interesting and to answer your question I dont know enough about Armstrongs holding, but if they are technology lead then yes as they may be more knowledgeable about AnchorFree's present valuation. Not a good sign that they are not sticking around till the end regardless. I dont hold btw as I could not find any argument to support anchorfree's valuation from 2012.

Problem with AnchorFree from what I can tell is they are one of a number of providers offering this service. Does not appear to be much of a barrier to entry either.

Interesting, buying here is basically taking a punt that AnchorFree is worth what it was when Goldman Sachs invested. Can see this report 11 months ago claiming 200M downloads hxxp://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20140113005354/en/Privacy-Takes-Center-Stage-2014-AnchorFree%E2%80%99s-Hotspot#.VGzSHPmsVLA this one 6 weeks ago claiming 250M hxxps://www.startupers.com/jobs/anchorfree-inc/4731-viral-user-acquisition-specialist-mobile-growth whilst this job advert 6 bweeks agao claims 300M hxxps://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/24592077 Clearly its growing, how fast is up for debate, they are changing their business model to subscription only and doing away with the free model.

Enviro - NJG's holding is certainly a positive; but even he has got it wrong in the past. It may be OK but I read the late Summer fall as concerns about AnchorFree; and with no way of knowing whether that valuation is secure, decided to leave well alone - come the Autumn the fall turned into a bit of a rout - hence my Post No.46 above... The AnchorFree boss was certainly less than impressive when interviewed! This may have been the one: http://blog.hotspotshield.com/2013/08/29/bloomberg-interview-with-anchorfrees-ceo/

There are no guarantees in investing Praipus, just a range of sureties of risks. I suppose BBM is fairly good odds at the moment given when I purchased since its technically underwritten by HMRC 100% at present.

coolen, just seen your post, im not in...yet. Still deliberating really, there are risks and a chance of not getting back your original investment to boot. Decisions, decisions!

ok so I see Greenwood is there with 4.5% as well and Ruffer with over 11%. So all boils down to Anchorfree, it growing looks to me, staff seem ok on glassdoor. Would think they could ipo if they had too, if that's on the cards in next few years selling the stake on to interim investors should be childs play. Management expect to do this fairly quickly they seem confident of the time frame. Have you any additional Anchorfree thoughts Praipus?

Ahh lol, I see :) May I ask Praipus who are the major shareholders? I cant seem to find a list. I note William Vandefelt seems to have a lot though. I suppose an equally important question is how do you feel about Ancorfree inc. since the lions share depends on what they can get for that?

Agreed, Enviro, and I've followed you in. I suppose the risk is RUG being left with some unsaleables towards the end. Conversely, it would not be the first time that a "liquidation" was reversed if an approach was received as the cash started to flow in.
