Agreed TopVest. They can hardly argue that "multiples of profit" are too high without being tempted to encash their own positions.

Hope they exit their very profitable Chinese investment over coming months. It's their biggest investment now and needs trimming back significantly in a Chinese bull market.

The final results make for an interesting read. I especially liked the following paragraph. "The Unquoted team pursued several potential transactions that evolved from our deal pipeline during the year, but we were unable to secure any of the businesses at prices with which we were comfortable. The private equity market has plentiful availability of debt at present and is prepared to pay multiples of profit that leave little headroom for the unexpected to happen. We will maintain our discipline and continue to find opportunities where the fit with Caledonia and our values outweighs pure pricing considerations". It's good to see that Caledonia is refusing to overpay for deals; this is the sort of approach that leads to superior long term returns. This also explains why the net cash position is rising steadily. The discount to net assets looks far too high for a company which is positioned so conservatively. This is why Caledonia is now the biggest single investment in my portfolio.

Net cash is now up to £136m. Perhaps Caledonia is taking a cautious view of the short term outlook for share markets.

Over the last few weeks, Caledonia have been cutting their shareholdings in a number of their investments. Either they are raising cash levels or they are rebalancing their portfolio. I notice that they have been increasing their exposure to Asia recently; it looks as if Caledonia has decided to become a more international investment trust.

Given that Caledonia's level of unquoted investments is always less than half of their market cap and the company is ungeared, the current discount is even harder to understand. In fact, the latest factsheet for March shows that they are currently holding £129 million in cash. I see that Caledonia have been building their cash levels for a few months.

Arja, the current discount is now 19.9%. The unquoted investments are valued very conservatively so the real discount is almost certainly higher. I really don't understand why the discount is at this level but I am taking advantage of it by increasing my holding. This looks like this is one of those anomalous situations where the price of a company is out of line with its fundamentals. Eventually, I expect the discount to narrow to a more rational level which I expect to be about 5%.

biggest - chart looks quite good and recent breakout . But is the 17% diswcount because of the unquoted investments which are hard to value ??

Caledonia's discount is now nudging 20%. The next net asset value calculation will be released in a few days which will include the biannual revaluation of their unquoted investments. Given how conservatively Caledonia value thair unquoted companies, the discount is utterly ridiculous. When you compare Caledonia with other global investment trusts whose average discount is 6%, the current discount is even more absurd.

Very impressive gain on the China Fund where one single investment is worth £75m. Interim's very strong. Coolen - can you please explain the relationship with Hansa Trust?..I wasn't aware of any link despite holding both. Many thanks.

great, glad it is just not me continuing to hold. Am in from around £12-14 sort of ranges a few times and have topped up in £20s....management seem to continue to deliver, great track record IMO. Still at a big old discount to NAV...seems pretty unwarranted IMO...but will continue to hold none the less!

I've held since they were £14.50 a while back. One of my better decisions to buy and hold these. still undervalued if the Nav is to be trusted.

Great continued delivery IMO....am holding on and enjoying the ride Northwards, yield is nice as well....steady as she goes and as you say BB, IMO this could narrow discount further so looking for 20% uplift from here and divis over the next 12 months....GLA

The net asset value shows the effects of the September revaluation of Caledonia's unquoted investments. The discount of 17% is way out of line with other global investment trusts. Ah well, I think patience is required for the discount to narrow towards the sector average of 5%. Given the conservative valuation that Caledonia has adopted for its unquoted investments, a case could easily be made for Caledonia's discount to be zero.
