time for the board to consider the best interest of all shareholders = liquidate the company and pay back 70p+/share in cash.

Mayfair Book Auctions a company owned by Scholium have their first live timed Internet
Auction (start 11/6 to 25/6) selling 70 books and work on paper.Seems very low key
a bit like their share price.
I gather they will have further auctions throughout the year with some rostrom auctions at St Geaorges Street.

Sorry needleboy not a clue really.Still time for a trading statement I suppose.
Did notice that on the Mayfair Phi' website re their Lingfield auction"....auction a success with vast majority of material selling and a great deal greatly exceeding our
Estimates" sounds a promising start.
Also noticed on the Scholium website that they have finally got their share price ticker nearly working . I think they really need a new website myself , maybe later when they are a bit bigger. Here's hoping.

Certainly busy on the fair front,from26/10 to 19/11they have the INK London,TEFAF New York,Chelsea,Boston and Hong Kong .py guillemet is at the Frankfurt book fair now
(See RNS)
Peter Gyllenhammar had to pay 52.5 for his last lot.I wonder if he is pausing for a while as the share price was not in periodic auction for the first time in months today(just guessing)
I wonder if they managed to sell that Matisse Jazz Art book for £400k at the Frieze show last weekend?

Hi mod farm, yes lack of interest here at the minute but hopefully a return to profit and any acquisitions may help. Liquidity also an issue so buying for the longer term seems sensible imv Looks very cheap to me and hopefully over time we will see a decent rise in share price.

Yep the share price would suggest this company is heavily loss-making but its eked out an H1 profit. If things continue to improve in H2 I think the shares will rerate closer to NAV.

Still like this stock and will add to my holding. House broker also likes them as an asset play which is no bad thing in current markets imv...


Scholium is a unique alternative asset play focusing on the rare and collectible
books market. After a difficult period since joining AIM nearly two years ago, we
think 2016 will be a much better year for the shares and the current valuation of just
over half net asset value makes them an attractive value play. Scholium also has
scope for M&A in our view, building on its quoted status and with many
opportunities in a fragmented collectibles market ripe for consolidation. This would
be the icing on the cake. Scholium should offer value and excitement in 2016. Buy.
· Interim results showed a rebound in performance December’s interim results
showed impressive revenue growth (+38%) and a return to profit, quite an
achievement given the dearth of Russian and Eastern European buyers over the past
twelve months. This performance was due in part to diversification into other stock
areas as well as the careful management of costs. Scholium Trading, in particular, is
starting to generate the returns envisaged with a £463k H1 revenue contribution
versus virtually nil last time.
· Change to stock mix is paying off The Rare Books business of Shapero Books has
deliberately shifted its stock focus to more resilient sectors reflecting the change in
market conditions and away from Russia / Eastern Europe. Whilst this proved a
successful exercise, it did lead to some sales at slightly lower margins with an overall
gross margin of 33.3% versus 36.6% for the whole of last year. In addition, Shapero
Modern selling modern art prints made a meaningful contribution to H1 revenue of
£235k.
· Strong balance sheet, Scholium is a value play Scholium’s balance sheet
comprises mainly cash (£1.6m) and inventory (£7.3m), these two items alone
accounting for around 50% more than Scholium’s current market cap. The net asset
value per share of 74.7p at the half-way stage can be expected to improve moving
forward as Scholium’s profitability kicks on thus making the shares an attractive asset
play. This is our primary valuation metric: even applying a conservative 20% discount
to factor in any stock risk suggests fair value of 60p per share.
· With the business back in profit, 2016 should be a much better year For most of
2015, Scholium traded at a sizeable discount to its NAV. Now that profitability has
been restored, there is scope for this discount to narrow substantially whilst the
prospect of a dividend in due course would increase the shares’ attractions to a wider
range of investor. Scholium is one to watch in 2016.
