Topvest. I think NAVF assess value in terms of P/B. AJOT considers EV/EBIT.

Changes in Japanese listing rules have incentivised companies to increase their P/B to get into prime listings.

Might be a one-time move? Earnings should be more relevant than book in the long run, I think?

Yep, SK Kaken again and again.
It is the same with Symphony with AGT.

Not sure if they can crack that nut, the management/founding family has 40% and the other shareholders do not seem willing to be active enough to band with AJOT.

They may have to drop that one in the long run. Cannot win all the battles. :(

This one is an interview with Joe Bauernfreund on Quoted Data

Direct link to video:

He talks about AGT and AJOT, more focused discussion, holding by holding, comments on discounts.
We learn that there is now only around 40% overlap in Japanese equities between AGT and AJOT. AJOT being used for smaller more illiquid holdings.

Bauernfreund says that 90% of his personal investment are in a mix of AGT/AJOT and other AVI funds. We need to take his word for it on that one of course.

The latest factsheet mentions the option to exit at NAV soon:

"As laid out in AJOT’s prospectus, four years after launch shareholders who wish to exit will be given an opportunity to do so at close to NAV. The rationale behind including this clause was to ensure that if the original investment thesis did not generate the expected returns, or if circumstances had changed to make Japan unattractive, then Shareholders would not be penalised for wishing to exit. AJOT has generated better than market returns and there is still an abundance of compelling opportunities. Given the share price is trading at or close to NAV, we hope that any Shareholders who wish to exit will be able to sell their shares in the secondary market, without AJOT needing to incur the expense of a more complicated mechanism. Nonetheless, AJOT’s joint placing agents Singer Capital Markets and Kepler Partners will be consulting Shareholders over the coming months to canvass opinions about a possible exit and as detailed in the Prospectus, a strategy will be developed based on the demand, underlying liquidity of our investments and the other factors mentioned. The results of the consultation will be reported in October 2022."

Considering that AJOT has mostly traded, on average, at a slight premium, this is unlikely to be a major issue comes October.

Investment Manager Increases Holding

AJOT is so badly run that activist investor AVI is taking a position in it to influence the manager and release some value. :)

AJOT is talked about in the second half of the article.

Turning more aggressive are we?
The NAV is again languishing below 120p.

AJOT may beat its index, but the index is doing pretty poorly at the moment. Still, the premium remains so the market trusts the manager, so shall I.

Potential Share Issuance
We continue to see an attractive investment environment and have identified six high conviction opportunities, comprising three new
and three existing companies where AJOT could increase its position. To capitalise on these opportunities, we are exploring the most
appropriate way of funding them, including a potential equity raise under the Company’s existing authorities. Alongside this option we
are considering the possibility of increasing gearing, and/or recycling of some of the existing portfolio. The six identified opportunities
could account for up to 35% of AJOT’s NAV, as the new capital is being sought to build large stakes to accelerate events and realise
potential upside

Newsletter for November:

Good bet on Wacom, which is now the top investment in AJOT.

Takeover bid for Daibiru at 50% premium to add 2.7% to AJOT's NAV

"While we are pleased that MOL has taken steps to address these issues, we believe the ¥2,200 bid significantly undervalues Daibiru given flaws in the procedures for calculating the offer price that conflict with Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry's Fair M&A Guidelines. We are evaluating the bid in full and will be engaging with both Daibiru and MOL over the coming weeks to seek a price for minority shareholders that more accurately reflects true fair value."

Apparently AVI will try to get even more money from that welcome development.
