There's a very valid point in that.

surprised Crystal Amber hasn't fallen further since the announcement of the Sudan affair at De La Rue where CR has a significant stake. having picked two dogs like De La Rue and Cenkos, significant question marks are raised for me over their stock-picking choices and skills. all imo. dyor. qp

16% decline in the share price as a consequence of the SFO enquiries related to South Sudan. These things can take a very long time to resolve (the merits of which often ignore what goes on in the real world, but that's another story...). Companies now have a strategy for dealing with such things which usually goes along the lines of 'sorry, will not do it again, the people involved have already left the company, have assisted SFO in every way possible, put in new policies and procedures and oh by the way management have also changed'. Whatever the fine, if there is one, will be treated as a one-off exceptional. Given that DLAR management have recently said they are '..committed to the highest standards of governance...' then this plays into CRS aims very well indeed. All in all this is positive for CRS activism.

dj, Not sure that is entirely true. 1607 took 10.34% which implies 5.63% went elsewhere.

Woodford's entire stake in Crystal Amber was sold off-exchange to US hedge fund 1607 Capital

Woodford owns no shares in CRS as confirmed by CRS "Crystal Amber confirmed in an email to Dow Jones Newswires that Woodford Investment Management had sold its entire stake"

SP fall caused by Woodford selling out. Now he owns <5%, the share price should recover

Agreed it needs change. Would prefer it to remain independent though.

Well DLAR made a huge effort to hit out at a shareholder questioning the management of a company that has been in decline for over a decade.We have heard their side of the story but ultimately the ceo is going the chair is going and the business is being restructured much because of RB activism.The chair has indeed overseen a period where the company has drifted without any strategic strength under a ceo appointed by him..the fact he was at Carillion before its demise is hardly a reassuring fact.The management renumeration is obscene in the current circumstances and doubt RB the only be concerned,Sooner someone takes DLR out the better while there's still value.

Bought recently too earlier this week. The DLAR rebuttal to CRS was well written and thought out but change is coming anyway and CRS should benefit.

Have just tweeted: #CRS Woodford sells entire holding (confirmed by @CrystalAmberRB1 today). Catalyst for me to make my first new trade for several months. Now a #CRS shareholder. Discount to NAV not as much as I would like but happy with activist portfolio going forward.

We now have the rns confirming Woodford has sold so we should get back to reality and see what else they can do with De La Rue.

Purchased 500k at 190p so obviously were involved in the transaction..probably set it up!So repurchase at 23% discount to nav ..all accretive of nav for holders.

Yes I think you may be right, there was a 16m trade printed late yesterday that I'd missed which I think is the woodford sale, the other larger trades are the people who have taken the other side of the trade. I'm hoping CRS has taken as much as possible as a buyback.

Yes Woodford must be all out which hopefully clears the overhang...also ex dividend today 2.5p.

rns on this today or tomorrow. my guess is he is out.

yeah the additional 500k @190p has to be Woodford selling again surely. Although as far as I can see the latest disclosure is that Woodford held 15,764,788 on January 16th 2016 as the last holding RNS. So even with the 1.2m sold to the company & management of CRS you would think he has more to go. Explains the widening discount. Hopefully CRS can take as much as possible at 190p, would improve NAV even if they had to reduce fund positions to fund it.

Discount to nav does obviously reflect short term uncertainty around their shareholders rather than their shareholdings. As an IT it is fix end so will not be impacted by liquidity issues of UT.There also does not appear a major overlap with WIM especially amongst the larger holdings.What also normally would be highly significant in valuation would be performance and on this over 3-5 years it appears CRS comes out well.http://citywire.co.uk/funds_insider/investment-trusts/best-investment-trusts-by-sector.aspx?citywireclassid=48

or maybe the market might think that the value of some of the portfolio holdings may go down further. good luck. hope it works. personally i remain unimpressed by the recent share price performance and particularly by their seeming lack of clout as an activist investor. it is clear that their share buy-back programme has not stopped the recent slide in share price and one can but wonder to oneself how much further the share price may have fallen without such a programme. all imo. dyor. qp

Yes they have had a few poor performers but the overall NAV performance has not been bad. I can understand why sentiment may be weak but that's also what gives opportunity as people overreact to negative news.
