Clearly the market doesn't believe these valuations. My house is worth £5m but has been on sale at this price for 3 years so I've incentivised the estate agent. It's still for sale with no buyers in sight. I can blame the economy, the buyers for not recognising what a fabulous house I have, or the agent for not working hard enough. Indeed any excuse I can come up with rather than admit the true value is perhaps nearer £4m or even £3m or maybe even less. Time to get real MPO.

Indeed, £113p prices in a 25% discount (including the management divestment incentive fees), which does not reward the risk taken. At this price, given the net leverage of 43% and the environmment with blood on the streets of HK, I would be selling. This discount is far too low, and the last assets will be very tough to sell, whatever the timeframe is, as always in those liquidations. Looks to me the manager Sniper are milking the investors dry, very nice exit deal for them with very misaligned incentives . Avoid!

So the board agree with my complaint that its fees are a racket :) On the one hand reduced management fee to something reasonable. On the other hand, another racket of huge incentives to sell the assets in a timely manner. Surely that's been their job for the last year and achieved zilch. Assuming they sell the assets next near at a 20% discount, and values keep falling 15% next year due to HK sentiment, add a 10% GBP recovery post brexit. These forecasts are not impossible. There isn't that much value yet.

New fee structure is interesting. An electronic copy of the AGM and Chairman's Letter is available at the Company's website at Https://mpofund.com/investors/publications/shareholder-documents/ Except it isn't yet, half an hour after the RNS. It happens a lot and it's quite annoying.

They're making the right noises, but selling a couple of bike parking spaces isn't quite enough.

@zangdook - I can't find where I saw this, but I do remember MpO releasing an announcement about 18 months ago they they had decided to cancel their goal of winding up the company due to the renewed strength of the Macau property market.

I saw this in the factsheet "Term : Next continuation vote by 30 November 2019" There you go. Shareholders can give them a good kicking at the AGM in November. If HK situation gets worse, its prices could drop 30% by then, Macau will be affected no doubt and the NAV might be a lot lot less. Is that what the share price is signalling I wonder.

Estrada is only 14.4% of assets. But its been on the market over 4 years. Maybe there isnt much of a market for $40m houses but if thats the case, it was poor judgement on the managers part to take the project..and now they are creaming about $1m a year in fees just to watch it. No hurry to sell I guess.

I'd have been happy with 15% off when the NAV was £2.50. I'd accept it now but more than that would be getting a bit close to the bone. I think the problem here is Estrada da Penha - who actually buys houses like that in Macau?

HK property is not in a great place clearly, https://www.scmp.com/property/hong-kong-china/article/3024773/some-8000-agents-face-elimination-transactions-shrink-hong But I noticed a new development offered a 10% discount in HK a few days ago and all units were snapped up in a day. Whether the HK market has a significant knock on effect on Macau, I dont know. But it shows what a 10% cut can do even now..Macau cannot be too different in that respect.

Are you saying something like a 15% discount wont attract huge competitive buying interest in a short space of time ? This vehicle is at a 45% discount remember. Hell, I would go and buy a unit myself at 20% off tomorrow ! lol

Have you not noticed the rise of passives and its impact on competition on fees and performance fees. In that respect MPO is years behind the market, althought they made the performance fees less eye watering a few years back.

I'd be wary of imposing a deadline, as that would lead to a firesale auction, with buyers who knew the properties had to be sold. Edit - just seen your edit.

Fair enough. I don't think the shareholding structure here allows PIs to have much of an effect though, as the managers own a lot and the institutions probably take them at their word. Unless evidence turns up that MPO are not trying to sell the assets I'm not sure what the effect of voting to liquidate would be, or what advantage would come from replacing them. I don't have any particular reason to believe they're procrastinating unduly or refusing acceptable deals, and unless they're misleading the market they aren't making new investments. The only other Macau-focused IT I'm aware of did replace its management and brought in new boys who said much the same thing as MPO and actually did it but at the last minute decided to hold on to the cash (with the option of taking it back at a small discount). How has the world of fund management changed, and how would you suggest making a determination that any given management are actually trying to liquidate?

Thats a nice bit of waffle to say we will carry on milking the company and do our best to realise value for you too without any deadlines. Investment trusts can vote to cancel the managers contract with notice or even vote to liquidate assets and close down the company. I dont know the exact mechanism in this trust ( some have votes on winding down and closure every x years ). Whilst the Macau market is in decline, have patience whilst they take their juicy fees and tell you to be patient. .. its not the right time to realise full value of the assets :) Maybe if enough shareholders are sick of the huge discount and the manager unable to realise value in a timely manner, the board can put it to a vote to liquidate with a timeframe in mind at the next AGM. I bet if all the assets were put up for sale at a 15% discount now, they would liquidate damn quick. Unlock the value. Activist investor is needed here. There is a conflcit of interest that the manager is a major shareholder though in this case.

I don't know what you mean - what vote? The company policy is "The Company will be managed with the objective of realising the value of all remaining assets in the portfolio..." Https://mpofund.com/about-us/investment-strategy/

You should vote for the wind up then. The world of fund management has changed since this was set up. Its now an extortion racket rather than active management.

They wont want to wind up the company as long as they can continue milking the company for 5%-6% in annual charges :)

In the last NAV report, they state that NAV dropped by 17% since the last quarter. What would have caused such a huge drop if property prices in Macau seem to be holding up at the moment. I still think the discount makes these great value, but would be happier if they wind up the company and return the cash to shareholders.
