vacendak: hTtps:// Expected Sterling strength against the Yen is not going to help AJOT.
davebowler: N+1 Singer are delighted to have acted as Sponsor, Financial Adviser and Broker to AVI Japan Opportunity Trust plc ("AJOT") on their Placing raising £13.9 million. AJOT is an investment trust established to provide investors with capital growth through investing a focussed portfolio of over-capitalised small-cap Japanese equities. The Company’s investment manager, Asset Value Investors, leverage its three decades of experience investing in asset-backed companies to engage with company management and help to unlock value in the under-researched area of the market. The net proceeds of the Placing will be used to fund further investments in accordance with the Company's investment objective and policy. Joe Bauernfreund, CEO and CIO of Asset Value Investors, commented: “We want to take advantage of valuations which in many cases remain depressed despite encouraging signs of recovering earnings and heightened levels of corporate activity. In addition to investing in a number of new opportunities, the proceeds will be used to increase the size of the shareholdings in several companies where the manager is planning on submitting shareholder proposals at the AGM later this year. The increased stakes will improve the likelihood of a successful outcome.”
vacendak: htTps:// They have now given up on Tokyo Broadcasting System Holdings (TBS) as they are not responding positively to AJOT's entreaties. At least they have only spent one year on that. Back in the days of British Empire, they had held Hudson's Bay for an eternity in the hope they would sell their buildings... and the loss when they finally gave up was more concerning.
spectoacc: Thanks @vacendak. Nearly bought in the market mayhem but never got back in. One thing I really don't like about AJOT - Softbank?? Why?
vacendak: AJOT good cop - NAVF bad cop: Https://
vacendak: Q2 Newsletter is out: Https:// For those who follow AGT (AVI Global) a lot of it can be found in the latest AGT factsheet. June factsheet: Https:// This is only about the numbers. Note that Fujitec, the lift and escalator company is clocking at 9.3% of the NAV for AJOT, pretty high for a single holding. It is mentioned in the newsletter that AVI controls 3% of the company across its three vehicles (AJOT, AGT and likely their fund AFHC, the AVI Family Holding Companies fund). I could not find much about Japan in AFHC but I assume they have a component there that holds Fujitec. The Q2 newsletter explains some of the limitations put on foreign capital in Japan, but there is an exclusion clause for fund managers, so at 3%, they should have the wherewithal to do more than ask questions at some point.
vacendak: Joe Bauernfreund has an article in MoneyWeek: Https:// Usual background on Japan: Companies heavy on cash, etc. New bit on the chronic under developed IT infrastructure in Japan.
vacendak: Https:// That is now two rounds of issue in the past couple of days. They walked back from the big placement back in March, so they are doing it in small slices under the radar. The premium is pretty hefty too, considering the current market conditions so the dilution for existing shareholder is not too painful. :)
vacendak: Https:// At the end of the article: AJOT is mentioned as entering the FTSE All-Share index. "Several investment companies also won places in the FTSE All-Share, designed to track at least 98% of the UK market, via their inclusion in the FTSE SmallCap index, which companies must be worth at least £100m to enter."
vacendak: They have admitted defeat before the battle: Https:// This was the right decision to take. I had considered putting some money on it back then, hoping that COVID-19 would be over within weeks, i.e. before the placement, but nope... They were allocating one share subscription right per share, which would have been nice when trading at 115+ p.
