Annual Report for year ending 30/06/22 came out on 28/11, available to download on CRS website.

Notable:
The section Investment Policy starting on page 10 sets out the plans for 2023.

- end of Dividends. Future capital returns will be by "tax-efficient means such as redeemable shares and/or tender offers";
- Company looking at ways of monetising GI Dynamics (81.5% shareholding, estimated value £23 million) by end 2023...
"In due course, the Company will consult with investors about the longer-term plans for GI Dynamics to realise value for the Company’s Shareholders. A trade sale is a potential crystallisation path.Alternatively, as the Company continues its disposal programme of its listed investment portfolio, it is possible that the Company’s listing may provide a suitable and cost-effective vehicle for GI Dynamics to be listed, raise its profile and potentially, following the achievement of milestones, provide the Company’s Shareholders with direct exposure to its growth prospects, as well as liquidity."

See RNS. Formal reporting results of the AGM (all motions passed).

Just the DLAR meeting to go, then, on December 2nd. (DLAR results RNS issued today, not well received. My guess is the Chairman will go. Maybe Morera will be proposed as CRS's NED on DLAR?)

Since the CRS AGM is in Guernsey I was expecting an update pre-meeting. I'm surprised they did not put out an RNS this morning (especially since this is the first meeting since last March's EGM about wind up plans, which have changed).

Juan Morera sold 50,000 shares. He's an 'employee' and may not be Inside CA, but he earns a crust acting as CA's appointee on HUR and ALM as NEDs. Odd timing. CRS AGM is set for Wednesday next week, He would normally vote through a proxy, I would think.

Is it significant? I can't think of anything. But coincidences make me nervous.

Must be a frustrating time for Mr Bernstein !On ALM although the price has fallen on delist the underlying assets are the same..and its quite likely as a private company the valuation would be nearer the asset value on an independent valuation. Share price 8p nav 34p ?But management has been extremely poorDe La Rue difficult to know what has happened..but the management have not delivered on the restructuring for growth and are 2 profit warnings down. Still think the two parts are more valuable on trade sale..looks like the management prefer to keep it together...management not delivering.HUR is a situation where the well paid incompetent executive board prefer to sit tight and keep earning. They have no real shareholdings and don't even have options to align them with shareholders. Management dire.

Well the Hurricane development today puts it in play and also shows there is a potentially a liquidity option available as there was an offer on the table at 7.7p that it appears CRS would accept , but the board do not recommend.If they got 7.7p per share for their holding would be £44.33m cash equating to about 53p a share so pretty much 50% of the current share price in cash.The 31st august nav was 137p there should be end Sept figure shortly but the offer valuation on Hurricane seems broadly in line with the price then.If one took that cash out of the equation ie ex 50p distribution the shares would go to 55p and assets stand at 87p hence an increased discount to NAV at 37%.

Nothing on HUR, but CRS has asked for a meeting to get the DLAR Chairman ousted.

Also, Meeting to delist ALM shares has been called for tomorrow in Boston, Result should be announced for Wednesday LSE opening.

CRS Annual Meeting set for 23/11/22. (Missed the palindrome by a day!)

CRS share price didn't move on opening, which tells me CA are a force behind the move at ALM. Bad news for PIs like me (only a small holding) but it is what should have happened two years ago. Only slightly better late than never.

Imo it means ALM cannot be one of the holdings making up the £50 million payout promised next month. CRS slightly up now.

We only have the details in the RNS on the 50p dividend 6 months time. No details on the final date is possible due partly I think to the one private equity holding. CRS management will have to work hard to abstract as much money as possible. The CRS share price has dropped with the fall of the live NAV that I have set up however the live companies are starting to recover from this weeks falls and the discount possibly even wider. This is an buy and hold mostly on a few UK companies. Time will tell how well they do but be clear this is an 6-18 month investment if you decide to invest.

hi Wbodger... if you were referring to my previous post,
then apologies i wasn;t specific.

I was referring to the NAV of CRS which , at spot prices + adj,
now stands at 163.8p per my calcs.

thus the CRS share price is at a 28% discount to spot NAV

DYOR etc..

Every time I think that, I look at the holdings! DLAR needs to do something fast, or they'll be in rescue rights territory. Can CRS afford to back a rescue rights? DLAR £1.40 on Friday, £1.15 today.

HUR isn't bouncing (15p), NTG is a dog (286p), I personally like ALM a lot and CRS have added, but I'd much rather own ALM than CRS. EQLS has had a few pence dcb but is in the "may/may not" category.

So NAV lower, CRS share price lower, but still no catalyst to want to buy. Discount needs to widen, not stay the same due to the holdings dropping as fast as CRS's s/p.
