rambutan2: Lists on thurs, with NAS holding a good chunk: hTtps://
topvest: The performance is very good. NAS has nearly tripled in a decade and Oryx has done even better. NAV performance is a c10-12% per annum compounder. I'm not greedy and invest in things that have a strong chance of doing 10%+ a year which is my minimum hurdle. I'm not really interested in things that can't make 10% per annum long term. I've always felt that NAS is better / certainly safer than Oryx. Oryx has out-performed of late as is more fully invested whereas NAS is more prudently positioned for the nightmare economic scenario we are now facing. It does mean that NAS has significant firepower when the value is there for some good deals. NAS also owns a significant % of Oryx. Odyssean are also part owned by NAS and if the manager doesn't perform to his high expectations, I expect Christopher Mills to muscle in on this one as well at an opportune time! From a few years ago: "Christopher became the Investment Manager for what was then Montagu Boston in 1982 and he became our Chief Executive in 1984. Since then the net asset value is up over one hundred times." Obviously when / if Christopher Mills retires then the investment trust may get liquidated and then the discount would likely go as well, but would lead to some short-term uncertainty no doubt. There is some risk on this front I guess!
p1nkfish: No way to know, a very cryptic mention and a bit of a tease. I think NAS is raising whatever cash it can via taking advantage now ready for something. Perhaps an anticipated big turn down or changes to landscape post Brexit. Some bargains will be thrown up.
rambutan2: Interims out: chief executive's review During the six month period under review the fully diluted net asset value fell by 9.7% (with Oryx under the equity method of accounting) as compared to a rise in the Sterling adjusted Standard & Poors Composite Index of 2.4%. The performance however compares very favourably with appropriate UK indices. The Company incurred a loss for the period of GBP629,000 (31 July 2019: profit of GBP3,671,000) as dividends were slashed in the UK and interest income on US Treasuries fell to almost nothing. The Company did not purchase any ordinary shares for cancellation during the period. quoted portfolio The COVID pandemic materially impacted a significant part of the quoted portfolio which resulted in some of our businesses such as Gleeson and Ten Entertainment closing entirely for a period. Stobart was also very hard hit as its principal asset Southend Airport ground to a standstill. Whilst these businesses are now once again operating, it most likely will take a long time before they return to normality and their share prices return to former levels. Against that, it was fortunate that the portfolio has some exposure to life sciences with EKF, Renalytix and Ergomed (which has now been sold) all performing well. Finally, Oryx very significantly outperformed its benchmark again and Odyssian also outperformed, although to a much lesser extent. US portfolio The US portfolio, albeit small, materially underperformed the S&P due to its heavy exposure to banks. unquoted portfolio The investment in Jaguar Holdings a provider of airline catering services had to be written down, although it is pleasing to note that the group remained cash flow positive throughout the period. Sherwood Holdings (Source Bioscience) however benefitted from COVID testing and was written up in anticipation of a public offering which is expected to occur in September. It is also expected that Verici DX will be listed in September with very strong demand already in place from institutions. Finally, there is a possibility that another of the unquoted investments will go public at a very substantial premium to the July valuation although, if this happens, it will be towards the end of the year. Outlook Stock markets, and in particular the United States, have performed extraordinarily well given the damage done to public finances and the economy. As worldwide schemes to protect employment are unwound and unemployment rises, it is hard to be overly optimistic about corporate profits in most industries. We do, however, expect a modest level of corporate activity which might give some underpinning to equities. We did however take the opportunity of the weakness in the market to build new positions in Circassia and Tribal Group, both of which based on end August share prices have performed well since purchase. Finally, Assetco was largely successful in contesting Grant Thornton's appeal so hopefully the Company will receive a substantial cash injection as the lawsuit reaches conclusion and the company returns cash to investors.

rambutan2: Prelims released tues: ...Our cash holdings (comprising cash at banks and US treasury bills) fell significantly during the period from approximately GBP122m to GBP82m. This is due to the repurchase of company shares for redemption and a number of new investments which we believe trade at significant discount to fair value. Since the end of the period all world markets have fallen very substantially due to the onset of the COVID-19 virus which has disastrously impacted economic activity. Many of our businesses have either had to shut down or have had operations substantially curtailed. As noted above we have entered this downturn with very substantial liquid resources. Shareholders will already be aware we have tended to invest mainly in companies with strong balance sheets. We are therefore very well placed to support our businesses where appropriate. To date we have helped refinance Ten Entertainment so that it can now withstand a shutdown of fifteen months at a cost of less than GBP1m. We would expect that no more than two or three other investments will require funding with an estimated cost to the Company of no more than GBP5m. Either I or a member of my team have now spoken to every major investment in the Company and Oryx (which also has comparable cash balances) and can confirm that we are confident that our business will survive this very difficult economic downturn. It is however inevitable that corporate activity will be curtailed for some time so that realisations may take longer to occur than was originally anticipated. Notwithstanding this I anticipate that the next few months will present some good opportunities and therefore remain confident that the Company will continue to provide positive returns once a degree of normality is restored.

davebowler: Hope we got our fair share! 8 Apr MJ Gleeson Plc ("MJ Gleeson", the "Company" or the "Group") Results of Placing The board of MJ Gleeson, the low-cost housebuilder and strategic land specialist, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the placing announced earlier today (the "Placing"). A total of 2,730,100 new ordinary shares of 2 pence each (the "New Ordinary Shares") were placed by Liberum Capital Limited ("Liberum") at a price of 600 pence per share (the "Placing Price") to certain existing shareholders and other high-quality institutional investors, raising approximately GBP16.4 million gross proceeds.
topvest: It was floated at 81 pence and so Harwood and Chris Mills have made a good return. The share price seems to have increased ahead of events. I suspect the offer cam forward when this was languishing over a £1. I always thought the share price was quite rich on this company. Shareholders shouldn't grumble - its a reasonable deal.
robsy2: I’ve been having a closer look at NAS. It looks very cheap at the moment .Why? • It’s trading on a discount of 29%. • The Z-score of -2.74 suggests NAS is particularly cheap compared with its own valuation history. • The company now has a buy back policy . • We are getting a dividend • The track record is excellent (especially of late) compared to its peer group, see below. • The TER is 1% What intrigues me is that the discount has been widening. I can’t see any special problems with the trust and am a bit mystified. I have done a few back of the envelope calculations. NAS has 14.2 million share in issue, a MCAP of 429m and NAV of 595m.. I did a bit of stock screening and of the 761 trusts on sharepad it comes in at #44 in terms of discount and believe me there are a lot of oddball trusts in the leading positions . If you start to filter a bit more by filtering out anything with a mcap under 50m , and anything with a positive z- score you get down to 167 trusts . It is 10/167 in terms of z-score value, I haven’t looked too deeply into this but at first glance most of the stuff ranked above NAS looks dodgy. NAS ranks 13/167 in terms of discount. Within its peer group, UK and global small caps it is the clear winner on both fronts 1/ 14 . So , it looks cheap, as we who post here already know, but I think it is probably even better than we think, because 16.5% of NAS assets are (or were until very recently) USD T-Bills. So, if we strip out the 98m of T-bills from the market cap we are left with 331m of MCap, if we take it off the NAV we get NAV 595-98= 497. It follows that the effective discount stripping out the T-Bills if now 33%. This is unduly cheap. This trust deserves a better rating than it has. The Buyback can only help. That’s it. Happy to hold quite a few of these already and I know I am preaching to the converted, but I thought I’d share it with you . Please let me know if I’ve made some dreadful error in my thinking here .
