Publication of Elections and Residual Net Asset Value per Ordinary Share -

Further to the Company’s announcement on 12 October 2021, in which the Company was placed into liquidation, the Company announces the elections from Ordinary Shareholders (including deemed elections) and Residual NAV per Ordinary Share under the terms of the Scheme:


Shares Option (A Shares): 8,721,365 Ordinary Shares with “A” rights, being Ordinary Shares with the entitlement to receive income shares in Unicorn UK Income Fund (“UKI Shares”), an open ended fund managed by Unicorn Asset Management.

Cash Option (B Shares): 7,095,322 Ordinary Shares with “B” rights, being Ordinary Shares with the entitlement to receive cash.

Residual NAV per Share

The Residual NAV is £64,965,033.24 and the Residual NAV per Share as at the Calculation Date of 9 November 2021 is 410.7373 pence. Of this Residual NAV, £706,870.00 equivalent to 4.4691 pence per Ordinary Share, will be transferred to the Retention Fund held by the Liquidators. These amounts are in respect of a single security from the fixed interest portfolio that the Liquidator has been unable to sell, and which does not meet the investment objective of Unicorn UK Income Fund and therefore is deemed inappropriate to be part of the in specie transfer of assets, and the Liquidators’ retention of £10,000. Cash received from future sales of this security will be returned to all Ordinary Shareholders (on the register as at the Record Date), both those electing for the Cash Option and those electing for the Shares Option, on a pro rata basis at a later date. Although the security may be sold sooner, for guidance, it has a maturity date in 2024 when it is currently expected to redeem at par.

The remaining balance of £64,258,163.24 equivalent to 406.2682 pence per Ordinary Share, will be divided between electors for the Cash Option and the Shares Option in the same proportions as the elections as stated above. Therefore, Ordinary Shareholders will imminently receive the following cash and/or number of UKI Shares:

~ For Ordinary Shareholders that elected to receive UKI Shares, each Ordinary Share with “A” rights attached to it will receive 1 UKI Share and the opening NAV of each UKI Share will equal 406.2682 pence.

~ For Ordinary Shareholders that elected for the Cash Option, each Ordinary Share with “B” rights attached to it will receive 406.2682 pence in cash. Cheques are expected to be despatched and electronic bank transfers made in respect of the Cash Option during the week commencing 15 November 2021. Entitlements shall be rounded down to the nearest £0.01, as the case may be.

Definitely a bit shoddy not to have had at least a holding announcement by now. I notice that both the ordinary shares and the ZDPs were officially removed from the LSE as of 8am this morning, having merely been suspended up to that point, so that suggests we are close to hearing the final numbers.

Thankfully, the FTSE Small-Cap index has been reasonably firm since the last NAV announcement on 8 October therefore you would hope the disposals that were needed have been made into a rising market. Looking at the share prices of some of the top holdings reported in the interims there doesn't appear to have been any significant price weakness over the past month. Polar Capital did dip a bit but has recovered.

I have swapped a couple of emails with the Chairman in the past so I have just sent him another on when we can expect to hear some news.

All proposals passed at EGM this morning. AIF NAV on 9 Nov is d-day with respect to shareholder entitlements to cash/Unicorn UK Income shares...

As a result of the passing of the Resolutions, the Company has been placed into liquidation pursuant to Section 391(1)(b) of the Companies Law and Benjamin Alexander Rhodes and Andrea Frances Alice Harris of Grant Thornton Limited have been appointed as Liquidators.

Shareholder entitlements under the Scheme
A further announcement is expected to be made on or around 10 November 2021 detailing shareholder entitlements to cash and/or Unicorn UK Income Shares pursuant to the Scheme (such entitlements to be calculated by reference to the NAV of the Company’s Shares and of Unicorn UK Income Fund’s Shares as at 9 November 2021.

I sold my AIF in the market because I didn't like the proposed new global mandate. I was annoyed afterwards. On the other hand, the proceeds went into BRSC which has performed well!

Had a quick look and Unicorn Income fund looks ok - top quartile performer over 3 and 5 years. I guess rolling over into the fund would mean you wouldn't suffer the transaction and other costs. Something to think about anyway. Last NAV for AIF was 449p so still at big discount even after today's rise. May sell if it gets within 5% of NAV.

It seems extraordinary that the BMO proposal got so far if there does not appear to be certain majority shareholder support! I'll watch AIF with interest but I've bought BRSC now and have rather more trust in their Board.

AIF was likely to be wound up with the BMO proposal, let's hope the next option reflects at least some of the current characteristics of the AIF we bought into.

I sold my AIF around 360p as I didn't like the new mandate (as proposed). The proceeds mostly went into BRSC, since up about 12% including a dividend. I didn't like selling at a NAV discount but BRSC has produced a return, so far, equal to about 403p per AIF share I sold.

NAV is currently over 20% above the share price. They need to come up with a cunning plan to convince share holders to vote for continuation.
