Odyssean sister company announcement--

Whilst the Board and Odyssean Capital are cognisant that OIT’s shares are trading at or around NAV, both agree that the proposed Tender Offer is appropriate to fulfil the commitment made to investors in the IPO Prospectus. In the Circular detailing the Tender Offer process, the Board has reconfirmed that it intends to continue to offer further redemption opportunities in the future in every 7th year post IPO.

A matching facility will be put in place with the intention that any shares tendered be matched with buying interest to ameliorate a shrinkage of the size of OIT and provide a liquidity opportunity for those investors who wish to acquire shares at NAV. Any professional investor interested in purchasing shares in connection with the tender placing should contact Innes Urquhart at Winterflood Securities on 020 3100 0265 or via email to express their interest.

I’d be guessing that someone or something has been selling and NAS has been buying them back from MMs who don’t want to hold as they are not investors. Under £35 looks like the lowest price fir some time and probably nothing wrong with anything under the hood. I hold but I haven’t looked under the hood recently.

Thanks for the extra info Pink.

First, announcement after close on 31st May makes very good sense from stock chart - up £3 in 2 days immediately. NAS should have told investors immediately. I would have bought more on the open.
However, it doesn't entirely make sense from the volume (as recorded on LSE). Close to zero on June 1st and still not much on 2nd. So maybe sellers pulled their offers and/or market makers (who are more switched on than us) immediately moved their offers.
What normally happens with larger stocks is that non-tracker short term traders buy lots, in preparation to sell to the trackers at a markup when they need to buy. Some trackers may have wiggle room in terms of a range of dates before and/or after to buy gradually.

With smaller, illiquid stocks I don't have the experience. It may be the £2-3 markup is all you're going to get, as the sellers who had their offers at £37, say, but pulled them when this news came out, will reappear, or already have done so, at £39, thanking their lucky stars. Or maybe the trackers' mandates will force them to push up the price into a sellers' strike and we'll reach £41-43.

Ordinarily, some of the froth will dissipate, but again who knows how much with such an illiquid stock. Maybe this will work as a successful discount control mechanism with the discount resetting at, say 15% or even 10%.

What I'm missing is knowledge of how much wiggle room the trackers have, datewise.

I think the BoE might (/should).

Thought some comments in here very interesting:
[...] (Edit - can't link, but copy/pasted the interesting bit).


Adobe down 24% in 5 days, on top of the falls [-40% from high] quoted from May 2022, and I thought this nailed it [from May]:


"In a note to investors in February, Richard de Lisle of the value-focused VT De Lisle America fund explained why a quality company such as Adobe looked susceptible to a further re-rating, even though its fundamentals looked “fantasticR21;.

“It has grown earnings at 19% on average for a decade and no doubt will keep going forever,” he explained.

“The stock is off from $700 to $500 [now $400], so it’s all priced in, right? Nope, it’s still on 50x trailing P/E [price-to-earnings], and in the 1980s you could get a 19% grower for 20x trailing. But the 1980s is where we’ve just referenced a 7.5% inflation rate.

“Sounds like a lot more P/E multiple falling still to be done here for the next few years. Earnings of more than 19% a year is a double every four years, so in four years’ time Adobe could be at the same price but on a trailing P/E of 25x if it can keep the good times rolling on.

“Not a bad outcome, but maybe not where you want to be?”


To save you looking it up, Adobe is $297 now. Yesterday's -16% on overpaying for an acqn, but I reckon the above comments fit a lot in the US.

At today's AGM, a "large-holding & long-time" private investor
a) requested the NEW Chairman to initiate a more proactive policy to buybacks (i.e. rather than passively wait for a seller to ALSO actively go into the market as a buyer )
b) told Chris Mills (CEO & IM) that, when CM eventually decides to retire (now 69), there should be a tender-offer (liquidation??) at close to NAV rather than just a hand-over of the reins to his son Nick.

Harwood seem to be sitting on their cash at the moment. I agree with Christopher Mills; better opportunities are on the way. The macro headwinds will likely break the market sometime very soon. Always pays to watch what he's doing as he's a much more successful investor than any of us!

He does it to a) ramp his one book b) keep investors invested c) attract new buyers to support the price.

I'm relaxed that he knows wbat he is doing in this space amd has had very good multiyear returns. Also loads of his own skin in the game.

Liked his caution. We've had a good run, US markets high on most metrics like CAPE, taxes both corp and personal increasing and obviously rates and inflation presure. If anything I find him a bit too bullish but he has to be I suppose.
