galeforce Somewhere in the annual report we are told how the directors decide on the dividend. If Wilson Sons reduces its dividend, then presumably OCN will too.

There are no indications of anything particularly wrong with Ocean Wilsons in Brazil. It's just a cyclical downturn. The Chinese bought one maritime operator TCP Participações a few years ago, but for the declared aim of their "Belt and Road" initiative Wilson Sons is a better prospect.

Varies - thanks for your quick response. I think I'm up to speed on the ownership/control of OCN by the Salomon family via Hansa and their personal holdings. I thought they also managed the cash (for a fee) via a business in the CI, but perhaps I'm out of date there. What I'm less clear about is the operational performance of the business. Is there a problem here or are we just looking at a cyclical down-dip? Also, do you think the current generous divi is sustainable?

galeforce1 I have held shares for over 30 years and I suppose my average cost is about 40p. OCN is controlled by the descendants of Walter Salomon, a banker from Hamburg who came over to London, I believe, in the 1930's. He also controlled Rea Bros (merchant bankers)amongst other companies. He died many years ago and I believe that his son and son-in-law must now be their seventies. I believe that their children are now in control but you could check on the Hansa Trust web-site. I I rember rightly, the family hold about 25% of OCN directly and about 25% more through Hansa Trust where they have a majority of the voting shares. In the past the investment management business of OCN was very successful indeed but this was then delegated to others whose collective performance has been very moderate. I believe that the family will sell out at some point but this may not happen in my lifetime. I did think that this was about to happen when discussions about the future of the Brazilian business were announced 9 months ago and much regret not selling some of my shares then. In short I regard this as a long-term holding with a decent yield.

Big drop in the share price here last week on slightly disappointing interim results. Revenues and profits are lower in the marine services part of the business. The container terminals seem to be doing OK. There's so much to like about OCN - no debt, lots of cash, modest valuation, great dividend. But it hasn't been a particularly successful investment for me so far. Would be interesting to hear anyone else's view on OCN's prospects. Is OCN's problem basically short term or something more serious and long term?

Pugugly The investment portfolio is just back up to the value it had 1 year ago. You can't monetise it, the directors control the company through there own holdings & those of Hansa which they and there family run. They get a nice wad of management fees paid to keep all there family members etc happy & employed. If you looked at the annual report you'd see that if the money had simply been invested in either the MSCI ACWI FM NR USD or MSCI Emerging Markets NR USD index the performance over the past 10 years would have been substantially better for shareholders. The fund has gained about 70% those other ones 150% & 115% respectively. LOTM

Trading poor but investments up "At 30 April 2019, the investment portfolio including cash under management amounted to US$276.3 million (31 December 2018: US$258.9 million). The investment portfolio represents US$7.81 (£6.01) per Ocean Wilsons share." So what are Wilson Sons Limited worth? And how (if at all) can it be monetised for shareholders? https://www.investegate.co.uk/ocean-wilsons-hldgs--ocn-/rns/quarterly-update/201905150700038921Y/

varies, re:"the mooted disposal of the container ports" The company, Wilson Sons, have never said that they were going to sell their container ports; only that they were doing a strategic review {which involves 'sounding' the market.

I am disappointed to learn that the mooted disposal of the container ports has come to nothing yet but at least we are still getting our dividend.

An idea of the towage competition ... From Camorim: Between the years 2019 and 2020, another 8 new 80-ton ships are planned, which will be built by Starnav, bringing the fleet to a total joint fleet to 43 azimuthal tugboats

LOL I think the case of Tecon Sepetiba is interesting in this context. The then owner, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional, offered them for sale a couple of years back. Wilson Sons was one of the bidders. See what happened !!

Not a good set of results. Quite frankly, they can't afford to sell the container terminals other wise they'll be no growth, given how big towage is compared to what would be left. Yes the oil & gas stuff should pick-up but its not happening yet & they don't seem to have many other ideas on how to grow the business. Oh wait ……. maybe we're going to have another investment fund managed by Hansa LOTM

Not that familiar with OCN but I see Wilson Sons (which I understand makes up about 2/3 of Ocean Wilsons, investment portfolio c.1/3) reported to the Brazilian and lux stock exchanges on Friday and it looks like the shares moved up quite sharply in Brazil. I don't know finer details eg whether it's the same reporting currency, reporting time, current price etc, but may be a sign some of the news had been priced in since the last announcement.

Pugugly Whilst the quarterly figures are disappointing, the lack of any reference to a sale of the ports seems more significant. Let us hope that the interested parties mentioned by Glassboy prove serious.
