hedge fund harry: The BCA share price was up 4% almost reversing the decline caused by the Times article. I also note that Armstrong Investments are continuing to increase their stake.
hedge fund harry: Thankyou gleach for highlighting this opportunity. My estimates are the NAV has risen by 6% since the last published update and the next update will show a NAV of 200p or above. 4% due to ZEG, 1% due to BCA, 1% due to GLOO. With the FTSE index at such a high level I think there is an opportunity here for a comfortable 20% rise in the share price. The portfolio companies are all listed plcs except Chameau which is 15%. The listed portfolio companies are BCA,ZEG,WCH,SSH,GLOO. Throw a 6.5% yield into the mix and I believe the current share price represents a fantastic opportunity in a market close to record highs.
belgraviaboy: You can add in that Miton have been buying for their Global Opportunities fund as well. From their most recent factsheet: "Marwyn Value Investors is distrusted by the market despite having been very successful in the past. The current share price is attractive given the possibility that the fund managers can repeat past successes." I bought some thing morning as well at the same price.
dekle: Just received notice of 71p paid 02/08/17 on my ZEG shares and no movement on the share price. Why is this share being ignored or am I missing something? That's almost 50% rebate of the share price?
davebowler: Liberum; Marwyn Value Investors (BUY, Mkt Cap £107m) £41m secured commitments and 33p potential uplift from Zegona Event Marwyn announces that MVI II LP held its first third-party fund close on Thursday 11 May 2017, securing commitments of £41m from limited partners who have acquired interests in the portfolio at NAV and are expected to invest alongside the company in future investment opportunities. Marwyn anticipates that further third-party closes at NAV may be held by MVI II LP within the following 12 month period. At the date of this announcement, the Equalisation Process has not yet occurred in relation to Zegona. The company welcomes the news that Zegona has this morning announced the successful sale of its Spanish Cable business, Telecable, to Euskaltel and as a result the Equalisation Process for Zegona will take place shortly. As a result of the Equalisation Process to date, the Ordinary Shares' portfolio of assets on a look-through basis has reduced by £11m in aggregate, and the cash balance attributable to the Ordinary Shares has increased by the same amount. There is no net effect on NAV following the Equalisation Process. The sale of the Master Fund interests in MVI II LP will crystallise a profit of £1.8m. The company has returned £10m in dividends since the sale of Entertainment One in September 2015 and in line with the Ordinary Share Distribution Policy is not required to pay a special dividend following this Profitable Realisation event. Liberum view The new fund raise was done at NAV validating Marwyn's valuations and providing it with resources to deploy in new investments. This morning's announcement of Zegona selling Telecable to Euskaltel is great news for Marwyn. Zegona represents c40.2% of Marwyn's of NAV after equalisation. The sale transaction values Telecable at a 41% premium to Zegona's current share price and a 42% total shareholder return against Zegona's initial investment. The transaction will generate significant up-front cash proceeds for Zegona's shareholders and the company intends to return excess cash to shareholders quickly and tax efficiently. The transaction will also allow Zegona to maintain its dividend policy (5p per share for 2017). We estimate a gross NAV uplift of c.33p per share on Marwyn's holding of Zegona.
tiltonboy: SKYSHIP, ...and both have had NAV dilutive issues. Liberum suggest the see-through price from Zegona could put 16% on the share price! As for why not buy the shares in the market...I don't think there are 25m on offer at the price. Even so, I'm surprised they didn't have another dilutive issue!
spectoacc: Lovely from ZEG: ZEGONA COMMUNICATIONS PLC Zegona sells Telecable for total value of Up to EUR701m(1,2) London, England, 16(th) May 2017 - Zegona Communications PLC announces the sale of Telecable, its Spanish Cable business, to Euskaltel Attractive valuation for Telecable: -- Euskaltel is acquiring Telecable for a total value of up to EUR701m(1,2) , comprising an Enterprise Value of EUR686m and up to EUR15m deferred payment -- The Enterprise Value consideration includes EUR186.5m cash(3) and 26.8m shares in Euskaltel (15% ownership) -- Transaction values Telecable at 10.8x EBITDA and 17.7x Cash Flow(4) Substantial value creation for Zegona shareholders: -- Transaction values Telecable at an implied Zegona share price of GBP1.99(5) -- 64% premium to Zegona's undisturbed share price(6) and 41% premium to Zegona's current share price(7)
davebowler: Liberum; Marwyn Value Investors (Mkt Cap £101m) 2016 results: -6.9% total return Event Marwyn's NAV total return for the year to December 2016 was -6.9%. NAV total return in the second half of the year was +3.2% following a decline of 9.7% in H1. NAV performance has continued to recover in 2017 with a return of +3.3% to date. The NAV decline in 2016 was mainly due to a fall in the share price of Zegona and the valuation of Le Chameau Group. Zegona released 2016 results last week which highlighted an uplift in revenue and cash flow of 3.0% and 9.7% respectively over the year. BCA's share price rose by 8.1% in 2016. The company acquired Paragon Automotive during the year to broaden and increase the penetration on value-added services which help to retain the customer base and drive revenues. Interim results for the period to October demonstrated strong growth in all key areas resulting in a 28% increase in earnings per share. There are now six portfolio companies following two new investments in Safe Harbour and Wilmcote Holdings. Safe Harbour is an unquoted company that has been seeded with £10m of capital by Marwyn and is seeking to acquire industrial distribution businesses. Wilmcote Holdings is a new management platform focused on the acquisition and development of businesses in the specialty chemicals sector. It has been established in partnership with Adrian Whitfield, who previously implemented a turnaround and growth strategy at Synthomer plc, a FTSE 250 listed specialty polymer operator. Liberum view Recent NAV performance has been strong mainly due to a 26% increase in Zegona's share price following the announcement that Euskaltel is in talks to acquire Telecable from Zegona. Consolidation of regional cable operators in Northern Spain has often been speculated. Zegona has been seeking further investment opportunities and is not under pressure to sell. We believe any bid would need to be at an attractive level in order to succeed. Marwyn is currently trading on a 34% discount to NAV (5.9% dividend yield). Cash as a percentage of NAV has declined from c.57% in December 2015 to 26% at the end of March 2017 and further deployment to fund an acquisition for one of the management platforms could act as a catalyst for a narrowing of the discount.
tiltonboy: ● Numis Views: The Ordinary shares (£112m market cap) are trading at a discount to NAV of 33%, and on the face of it the opportunity to convert into a Realisation share class sounds appealing given that the portfolio had significant net cash of 24.2% of net assets as at 29 September. However, the Realisation shares appear to have been designed to appear as unattractive as possible. Holders of the realisation shares are likely to be left with an illiquid investment, with no dividend and the likelihood that no significant realisation proceeds will be received for at least five years. There is also the threat of potential dilution in the investments in future. In particular, we find it hard to understand why the Realisation shares will not benefit from the same quarterly dividend as the Ordinary shares. Although there is a significant pull to redemption due to the size of the discount, shareholders face management fees of 2.0% pa on the underlying assets, as well as listed company costs (and potential incentive fees on gains). ● In our view, investors in the Ordinary shares seeking an exit are now caught between a rock and a hard place. We believe that Marywn Value has an interesting mandate, and it has an impressive long term record, largely due to its previous investment in Entertainment One. However, we have been wary of the fund due to the concentrated nature of the portfolio and concerns over corporate governance. In December 2015 the fund raised £50m at 220p which represented a 15% discount to the prevailing NAV on a non-pre-emptive basis, resulting in dilution of c.5% for shareholders that were unwilling/unable to participate. The company has strong backing from a number of institutional shareholders, notably Invesco AM, which holds a stake of 41.3%, according to Bloomberg. However, we do not believe that Boards should justify corporate action that may be unfavourable for many smaller investors just because they can gain support from a handful of large investors. We therefore continue to believe that Marwyn Value is a stock to avoid. Over the past three years, the fund’s NAV is down 10.7%, while its share price has fallen 21.2% (both on a total return basis). Over the same period, the Numis Smaller Cos Index (ex ICs) is up 21.5%.
blondeamon: JUST BEEN RECOMMENDED ON SIMON THOMPSON'S BARGAIN SHARE PORTFOLIO!! Imagine being able to buy shares in an investment company for a third less than the combined market value of all that company's investments. Even better than that, imagine that all those investments are soaring in value, but investors have yet to cotton on to the fact. It may seem an unlikely scenario, but this is exactly what I have uncovered in a special situation this week and one that provides us with one heck of an arbitrage opportunity. And I don't expect it to last long once other like-minded investors wise up to this valuation anomaly. Time to 'arb' away the valuation anomaly The company I have uncovered, Marwyn Value Investors (MVI: 143p), has been under my watchful eye for some time now as I have been waiting patiently to press the buy button. I think that time has now come because the share price discount to net asset value has widened to such an extent that the downside risk looks virtually non-existent and a 20 per cent-plus re-rating in the share price looks firmly on the cards. Let me explain. The company was created in April 2008 through the amalgamation of two Marwyn funds and was admitted to trading as a closed-end investment company on the Specialist Fund Market of the London Stock Exchange in December 2008. The investment objective of the company is simple: to maximise total returns through the capital appreciation of its investment in Marwyn Value Investors LP, an open-ended fund domiciled in the Cayman Islands, which was launched in March 2006 with backing from more than 60 leading institutions and alternative funds. Marwyn Value Investors LP specialises in the acquisition of growth businesses by taking significant stakes in quoted portfolio companies and has so far invested in 13 portfolio companies which have together completed 68 transactions, with an aggregate transaction value in excess of £1bn. It has been successful, having generated net asset growth of 140 per cent in that period. Hidden value in the portfolio Currently, the ordinary shareholders of MVI have interests in five companies: film producer Entertainment One (ETO); healthcare software company Advanced Computer Software (ASW); Breedon Aggregates (BREE), the largest independent aggregates company in the UK; specialist asbestos services company Silverdell (SID) and transport and consumer goods investment company Marwyn Management Partners (MMP). Of these companies, all bar Marwyn Management Partners, which only accounts for around 2 per cent of net assets of MVI, are Investors Chronicle buy recommendations. Moreover, shares in these companies have been soaring since MVI last updated the market. For instance, shares in Entertainment One, which has just completed the acquisition of Alliance Films to become the largest independent film distributor in Canada and the UK, have risen 10 per cent since 18 January as investors warm to the earnings-enhancing deal. Even now, shares in Entertainment One are still only rated on 11 times EPS for the 12 months to March 2013, dropping to 10 times the year after. Given that the investment in the company accounts for more than 75 per cent of MVI's net asset value then prospects for the two companies are closely interlinked. But even though shares in Entertainment One have rallied 46 per cent off their lows last May, shares in MVI have only risen by 16 per cent in this time, which means the share price discount to net asset value has widened further. That's important because, by my reckoning, the investment in Entertainment One, a company with a £500m-plus market value, is now worth more than MVI's own market value. Of interest, too, is the investment in Advanced Computer Software (ASW). Half-year figures from the healthcare and business software specialist revealed robust sales growth and impressive cash-flow generation. Underlying cash profit jumped 10 per cent to £13.2m, while cash generated from operations rose 9 per cent to £12.3m. The cost-saving IT solutions offered by the company are clearly proving popular in the current climate, which is hardly surprising. The shares are proving popular, too, having soared by 40 per cent from 60p at the end of September to 83p now. In fact, the value of MVI's investment has increased in value by almost 20 per cent in the past three weeks alone. By my reckoning, MVI's holding is now worth around £25m. And it is not the only share price gathering momentum as MVI's investment in Silverdell has soared 45 per cent since late September and is up 12 per cent in the past three weeks. The company offers specialist asbestos services in the UK by providing environmental, remediation and consultancy services across diverse end-user markets including government, retail, utilities, nuclear, marine and petrochemical. To highlight the growth potential in this business, it's worth considering that the price has more than doubled since we first tipped the shares at 7.25p two years ago, and yet the shares still trade on just nine times forecast earnings. True, the share price of Breedon Aggregates is unchanged since the last investment update from MVI but, taking all the gains into account, by my reckoning MVI currently has a net asset value well over 10 per cent higher than the 186p a share reported on both 18 January 2013 and 28 September 2012. But MVI's share price, at 135p, is barely changed, having been 127p at the end of September and 130p a month ago. On this basis, I calculate that shares in Marwyn Value Investors (MVI), are priced at a third below net asset value which is anomalous to say the least considering the buoyant performance of its shareholdings and the operational performances from the companies to back up those. Share price breakout looms Interestingly, ordinary shares in MVI are now priced just below their September to December highs around 144p and look poised for an imminent breakout. That would certainly be justified based on the performance of the portfolio and the operational performance of the constituent companies. Priced on a bid-offer spread of 140p to 143p, I rate Marwyn Value Investors' (MVI) ordinary shares a very strong trading buy and have a conservative three-month target price of 165p, which, if achieved, would narrow the share price discount to current book value to around 20 per cent. Please note that Marwyn also has a 'B' class of shares, which I am not recommending buying.
