Not sure that's fair. If sentiment towards a sector and therefore LIO share price haď not tanked, may well have gone through.

The GAM share price has now weakened to 46c. I suspect there are a lot of holders leaving acceptance to the last couple of days. If a shareholder does not accept Liontrust then 20% of holding gets sold to Newgam...what value is place on the rump? "Unlock significant value" ...if it had that value there would have been other bidders would be my thinking.

all share prices are bombed out at present. last week was just a liquidation sale for small caps. one thing for sure though: the offer is not attractive for GAM shareholders. Also Xavier Neil is a well respected billionaire who bought the third largest mobile operator in Switzerland (Salt) with his own money. He is highly respected in Switzerland, France and Germany. He and his partners have also offered a loan to GAM so they are not stuck with the Liontrust offer. So this deal is not going to fly for Liontrust

There's three possible outcomes for Liontrust now: their bid is successful, it's unsuccessful and they walk away, it's unsuccessful and they come back with a higher offer.

It looks to be one of the latter two, with the market pricing suggesting a bracing for a higher offer and an extended period of uncertainty for investors in both managers' funds.

I'd guess that anything but a higher offer would lead to some recovery in Liontrust's bombed out share price.

N91 reported this morning too, usefully stating past 3 AUM's:

"Ninety One today confirms its assets under management at 30 June 2023 of £124.8 billion (30 June 2022: £134.9 billion; 31 March 2023: £129.3 billion)."

Not looked how much of LIO/N91 is performance & how much is money leaving the market, but agree it looks set to continue.

Some of that is in the price already of course.

The investor group comprised of NewGAMe and Bruellan - which is opposed to Liontrust's takeover of Swiss fund group GAM - said on Tuesday that it plans to increase its stake in GAM from 8.4% to above 10%.The group said in a statement that it has notified the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) that it intends "to go above the threshold of 10% of the voting rights in GAM".Earlier this month, the investor group said Liontrust's £96m takeover offer undervalues GAM and "does not reflect the significant upside that a successful turnaround could generate for GAM's current shareholders"."In addition, the fact that Liontrust only offers its own shares, and is not making any cash offer, implies that GAM shareholders will be subject to the volatility of Liontrust shares without any firm price for a business that has significant intrinsic value," it said.The investor group also said the deal proposed by Liontrust was subject to "significant execution contingencies", since the risk of an unsuccessful exit of GAM's fund management services business in Luxembourg and Switzerland - "on which almost no information is being provided" - is being shifted to GAM shareholders."The investor group is therefore contemplating not to accept Liontrust's offer under the current terms," it said.

"The dispute is thought to centre on governance, not pay".

That's the only interesting part I think.

Wary of copy/paste but here's most of it:

"A bust-up in the boardroom at Liontrust, the FTSE 250 fund management group, has led to the abrupt departures of two non-executive directors.

Emma Howard Boyd and Quintin Price both quit “with immediate effect”, the company said, with no explanation.

Their resignations follow the departure of another non-executive, Sophia Tickell, in September 2021, and a major shareholder revolt last September over executive pay at the company.

Howard Boyd, a former stewardship chief at Jupiter Asset Management, only joined the board in January last year. She had special board responsibility for sustainability at the group, which has marketed its funds heavily on their environmental credentials. She was also on the board remuneration committee.

Price, a fund management veteran, who also serves on the board of Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust, had been on the Liontrust board less than two years. He also sat on the remuneration committee, as well as the audit and nomination committees."

"Liontrust said it was “in the process of searching for new non-executive directors and will be providing a further update in due course”.

The dispute is thought to centre on governance, not pay."

"Last September 46 per cent of shareholders who voted were against the company’s remuneration policy in spite of modifications made to it in response to earlier criticisms. John Ions, chief executive, was paid £6.01 million last year and was given a 58 per cent increase in his base pay from £348,000 to £550,000, which angered some shareholders.

The company said at the time it would “engage with shareholders again to understand their continued disagreement with Liontrust’s approach”."

Tipped in the Mail on Sunday today. No position but onto my watchlist.

£1.2bn fund shows why it's still king of the small-cap jungle

The managers do not invest in unquoted stocks, only pick profitable businesses that have their head offices based in the UK – and like the executives of their chosen holdings to have 'skin in the game' (own shares in the businesses they run). The fund is overseen by a six-strong investment team who between them run a number of Liontrust vehicles with exposure to the UK stock market. The team's Anthony Cross believes the fund's framework ensures it has the best chance of obtaining the returns that investors expect.

He says: "Investing in unquoted businesses is a different skill-set to what we do as holders of companies listed on the UK stock market. Unquoteds need more hand-holding which often means sitting on their boards. We prefer to invest in profitable small companies that are not only listed on the UK stock market, but are headquartered here. That gives us the assurance that they are subject to all the laws governing UK companies."

The final part of the process – 'skin in the game' – is ensuring the senior management have the same financial interests as Liontrust: namely to drive up the share price. Of Liontrust UK Smaller Companies' 67 holdings, the average management skin in the game is 20%.

The fund managers select companies that have 'economic advantage'. This means businesses that through a mix of intellectual property, strong distribution and recurring revenues are able to maintain a competitive edge over rivals – driving profits ever higher. The fund is not suitable for income seekers and its ongoing annual charges total 1.32%. Over the past 5 years, its sister fund, Liontrust UK Micro Cap, has delivered superior returns of 63%. Its emphasis on smaller businesses than UK Smaller Companies means it is a riskier investment proposition.

LionTrust Asset Management issued its trading update for the six months ended 30 September 2022 this morning. Net outflows were £1.6 billion in the three months ended 30 September 2022 and £2.2 billion for the six months ended 30 September 2022. Assets under management and advice were £31.7 billion as at 30 September 2022, a decrease of 5.5% over the financial year and down a little further to £31.2 billion at 14 October 2022. The bear market is hitting the investment sector generally, revenues and profits will come under pressure accordingly. The share price is already down around 2/3 from last year’s peak, valuation is very attractive accordingly with forward PE ratio at 8x in the top quartile for the IB&IS sector. LIO is certainly a smaller asset manager worth owning, the weak macro outlook and potential for further market correction are the main clouds for the near term investment outlook. LIO will be worth owning at some point over the next year, but for now is still a share to monitor...
