dangersimpson2: Regardless of any profits in the past, recent mistakes on HUR seem to be unending. Not just the initial purchases but buying recently when the board had already indicated that the restructuring would severely reduce shareholder stakes in the company. HUR say: As at the date of this Explanatory Statement, one major shareholder has held discussions with the Plan Company, but this shareholder has not undertaken, or given any indication that it would be willing, to provide additional financial support sufficient to dispense with the need for the Restructuring. Another major shareholder indicated to the Plan Company's nominated advisor that it would not be prepared to enter into confidential discussions regarding an unnamed company, being the Plan Company, that would involve the sharing of inside information in respect to that company and during which the identity of the Plan Company would have been disclosed. Since the launch of the Practice Statement Letter on 30 April 2021, this major shareholder has requested the resignation of both the chairman and the senior independent Director of the Plan Company. Both Directors retain the full support of the Board. So it seems, according to HUR, Kerogan refused to put extra cash in and CRS refused to enter into any discussions that would take them inside, and hence HUR were unable to discuss any options for CRS to refinance them. With this as the background, I doubt CRS will be able to prevent a court from deciding the restructuring plan was the only option. Then the requisition of the General Meeting to remove all the directors gives 28 days for HUR to call the meeting by which time the plan will be approved by the court and the newly-appointed directors will come in just in time to implement the restructuring or call in the administrators. HUR clearly not covered themselves in glory, but CRS seem to have made a lot of very preventable errors here.
spectoacc: @edwardt - CRS certainly been wrong on HUR, consistently. Can't blame them for not wanting to get wiped out in the D4E tho. But if they didn't like management, the time to call an EGM was long ago. Seems to be a pattern - CRS punt something (be it Northgate, DLAR, ALM, HUR), it goes wrong, they average down, it goes more wrong, they eventually kick up a stink. Unconvinced the discount's large enough here. Effectively paying fees (2% pa) for a portfolio you could replicate yourself (ex the unlisteds), and in sizes you could get out of again. Few if any of CRS's holdings are sellable if/when things go wrong (eg 14% of DLAR, 23% of EQLS, 21% of ALM). And to top that, the stock-picking seems particularly poor. S/P where it was a decade ago.
rambutan2: Monthly Net Asset Value Crystal Amber Fund announces that its unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per share at 31 March 2021 was 139.24 pence (28 Feb 2021: 132.51 pence per share). Worth reading the commentary:
flyfisher: CRS sold its £5m holding in redde nothgate a couple of months ago at around 170 - 180p. Redde, currently trade at 285p, up 63% from their selling point. It is time this vehicle for director self interest was wound up.
rambutan2: Dec nav and manager commentary:
wbodger: KMR has been rising, outpacing a good mining sector, and recently spiked a bit. Just RB's luck to have sold most of the few shares they had, when they should have been adding. Never more than 1.4% of KMR equity. I'm not sure CRS have any left. (Just my luck too - I watched them from around £2 and never got around to it.)
thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast a few days ago and part of our discussion includes CRS and some similar Stocks. We also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 39) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, not like all the stuffy financial fodder you are probably more used to !! Happy New Lockdown !!

rambutan2: Good: Declaration of interim dividend In the final results announcement for the year ended 30 June 2020 issued by the Fund on 21 September 2020 it was stated that, in view of the effects of COVID-19, there was significant uncertainty as to the timing and quantum of dividend receipts from the Company's portfolio companies. The Directors were also mindful that changes in the composition of the portfolio could mean that there would be lower dividend receipts than in past years. Accordingly, the Directors concluded that a decision on whether to pay an interim dividend in this financial year should be deferred until later in the year. The Fund is now pleased to declare an interim dividend of 2.5 pence per share in respect of the financial year ending 30 June 2021. This dividend will be payable to shareholders on the register as at 8 January 2021 with an associated ex-dividend date of 7 January 2021 and a payment date on or around 5 February 2021.
spectoacc: A different sort of "tank" to the one CRS usually experiences (DLAR; HUR; EQLS...).
rambutan2: Invesco's 20% stake (18,870,340) sold, says the rns, although can't really see it looking back through the trades. CRS website yet to be updated. htTps://
