|Daily tech target is 154 (curr est nav 156) - weekly target 168 - there is a gap at 168 also|
|I think this sale will be Arle's own holding or, more accurately part of it. They held 37ish% if I recall.
The point remains though, a value investor was prepared to pick up a wedge at pretty much market price (assuming the message is accurate). I was mentally prepared for -7p finance closure, 10% d/c to the market and then delist and wait for the bits and pieces. As long as € and PQR hold up CDI still look value. PQR closed up 2% in a declining market today, as far as I could tell on no news other than Arle's sale.|
|I would very much hope so!
No announcement yet...hope I wasn't being presumptious!|
|I ask because in Feb Arle reported as ceasing to be a holder (2nd bullet below). Maybe they acted on behalf of Candover and other shareholders? No RNS from CDI suggests they still hold

|are these part of the Candover holding or held by Arle separately?|
|That sounds about right.|
|Does that equate to about EUR 47m for the CDI stake?|
|Buttanc - tks good fundy view - my fib trader target of 145-150 similar.
Will be cool to see if total returns end up there.|
|buttanc - thnx for that...|
|There is a useful figure for debt repayment in the analyst presentation on the website. It says:
Repayment of the outstanding loan is subject to a minimum return of
1.4x. Full repayment would dilute year end NAV by c.7pps.
So I assume that NAV per share would have been 156p after debt repayment.
I though about selling today, but on this NAV the share price seems too low. Short of a collapse in the share price of Parques Reunidos, the eventual payout will be significantly more than 120p.|
It doesn't look as if your figures above include the £2.3m positive difference between trade receivables and payables.
From memory I think the minimum CDI have to pay on the loan is approx £40m so that lops approx £5m off NAV at completion and of course running costs.|
|Just had a quick look at why my year end NAV was on the low side (£1.51) and have noticed that the valuation metric to value Parques and Technogym has changed from 93.5% of listed price to 95% of listed price since 30th June.
I'm going to suggest this was beyond my control to spare my blushes!|
|145-150p at a guess - not bad if you got in at c.100p|
|I could be wildly out here, but I think the current assets are:
£27.5m - Parques Reunidos
£ 2.3m - nett cash
£ 1.9m - other investments
The holding in Expro has been diluted by 98%, so no meaningful write-backs will be seen.
This gives £31.7m or 145p per share.
There will be finance, and debt repayment costs to come off this figure (I believe), so that probably takes us back into the 130's.
The big unknown is whether historic tax losses can be used, and if they can, what would they be worth. There looks to be over £250m of accumulated losses on the balance sheet, but how much of that could potentially be available?
I wonder if somebody like Gresham House might be interested? They like basket cases!
Would love somebody to shoot down my figures.|
|How much do you think shareholders will eventually receive then, assuming values stay the same and its just exit costs to come? Management have never given any guidance and continue to be silent on the prospect. With the Chairman going I would not be surprised to hear of extra costs coming out of the wood work. This company is built on complexity and leverage, rather than simplicity and prudence.|
|Cheers Tilton - need to brush up my Latin :-)|
|OK, misread. Thanks. Looks to me that Candover may well come back to life to utilise tax losses.|
|Over 10p higher than I expected (but doesn't take account of min finance costs) - interesting Arle washing their hands and dishing the Expro and the remaining Parques shares out to shareholders in specie.|
|They won't distribute shares to you. They will move from Arle to Candover.|
|Not impressed that they are distributing shares in Parques. I can't hold shares in a Spanish listed entity, and don't want to. Expro is a different matter, but surely we should get the option for cash instead. Really frustrating company this one. £9.5m of admin and finance costs are destroying shareholder value.
Never fails to disappoint!|
|Prelims (see Header) show 31st Dec'16 NAV at 163p....and rising with the PR price. Also the BoD seeing whether they can extract some value from the tax losses. Sp still looks to be behind the curve.
