They seem to have got a big move in the de la rue shares without moving their own!

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.

EQLS on the other hand is one where they have 25% of the equity. Most of the holding was bought as FairFx, at 20p a share in a placement in 2016..(£5.25 million for 25%, 26 million shares). It looks like they were diluted to about two thirds of that %age in 2017 with the change to EQLS. Since then they have bought back to about 25% of the increased float. The original 26 million shares will be standing at a good profit, the shares bought in at higher prices less so but still profitable afaics. As always, dyor.

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.)

Both EQLS and KMR had a strong rise today. No sign of any new holdings recently, is the outlook for a slow winding up?

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 !!

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.

A different sort of "tank" to the one CRS usually experiences (DLAR; HUR; EQLS...).

i suspect those who they will have to listen to over the other side of the pond will be more creative in their thinking but mine is simple and gets you through some of the problems outlined above.

edward, I agree. For now, there has been a strong rise in some holdings post vaccine news to give current nav of around 127p. They continue to sell down some holdings in order to buy in their own stock, a reasonable strategy at a 30% discount. You could email your opinion to the company.

Time to throw in towel and run down the book. No more new investments would get my vote and a 2 year run off on existing.

Agreed - and they're not going to get only a 10% haircut to dump that many EQLS, or DLAR, or ALM.

If you assume they wouldn't get much for board intelligence or GI Dynamics then a say 10% haircut to place the listed equities as blocks that would only leave 10% profit but on top there would be wind up costs. Given the time & effort required, there must be easier ways to make money. A very aggressive buyback would close the NAV gap but then where is the exit for the activist funds?

Lol @HUR. Fair to say we were all calling that one out a while back! (eg post 447). Discount to NAV surely the only reason for activists, with a view to possible wind-up? But most of those holdings wouldn't be easy to sell in any size.

It's quite funny that a listed activist fund is itself being targetted by activist funds. Not sure what exactly they are going to do to agitate for change tho - send Bernstein on a de-programming course where they give him an electric shock every time he buys more HUR? CRS are already buying back shares at discount - there is only one thing that will change sentiment here and that is better stock-picking & portfolio management. Kicking out the fund manager or getting them to reduce their fee still leaves the same portfolio to deal with, and if they are a forced seller then the market will put the holdings under pressure a la Woodford. 30% discount is not enough to make that strategy work.

So, those will be two slightly worrying additions to the shareholder list for the board. And 1607 is also there with 12% and Rath Dhu with 3%. All adds up to at least 37% held by not so easy to please stakeholders. Time for Mr Bernstein to start performing!

And Almitas added big time, taking its 6% up to 16%: https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/crystal-amber-CRS/share-news/Crystal-Amber-Fund-Limited-Holdings-in-Company/83506173 hTtps://www.almitascapital.com/?page_id=37 htTps://www.investegate.co.uk/Index.aspx?searchtype=1&words=Almitas+Capital
