Looks like the last stages of the LSR liquidation. Could be worth taking a few on board on a dull day, though not a lot in it: https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/local-shop-LSR/share-news/Local-Shopping-REIT-The-PLC-Update-on-Property-Sal/78581186

Tilton - yes I know its my blog! They have been in liquidation for a couple of years but I think things are coming to the point where they will hopefully start moving.

They have been in liquidation mode for a couple of years. Kilada Hills, Aristo, and to a lesser extent Kea Island are key to the outcome. The company expect to see significant value arise during the development of Kilada, which would be accretive to NAV, but they have hardly got a good track record. Even if they only deliver 50% of the current NAV, it would be a 50% increase in the current share price. Mind the fees, however!

DCI appears to be liquidating - could be good upside / low risk. hTTps://deepvalueinvestments.wordpress.com/2018/10/01/dolphin-capital-dci-reentered/

AXA/APT RNS: RNS: On 21st June 2018 the Board unanimously agreed that it is in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders to wind up the Company voluntarily in accordance with the Companies Law, appoint Linda Johnson and Ashley Paxton of KPMG Channel Islands Limited as Liquidators, and to cancel the admission of its shares to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange.

You're right Rob on Senado square. LTV is about 15% but that's still 80p net which can be distributed to shareholders. That greatly protects the downside for me and there is quite a bit of upside over NAV if they can realise similar premiums to book value on the other properties, although I'm not assuming so.

Nor me - there are many like that, especially in India & China it would seem. Personally I believe there to be a distinct possibility that due to poor transparency, debateable valuations and "uncertain corporate governance", many foreign registered plays will prove to be long-term value traps. Would be very interested to hear of some in USA & Canada; but suspect that the wider retail ownership there may preclude the valuation anomalies that sometimes present themselves here in the UK.

I looked at it - NAV is say 30-40% below what you could get - but there is leverage and the property is valued at low cap rate. In AR debt is associated with senado square so not all will be returned. Not one for me - probably will be OK but can imagine in any sort of slowdown this will be hit hard.

Anyone looked at Macau Property Fund? It's currently in windup mode. They announced contracts to sell their largest property at 15% above book value a couple of weeks ago. https://www.investegate.co.uk/macau-prop-opp-fund--mpo-/rns/mpo-enters-formal-contract-to-sell-senado-square/201802050700048498D/ Last NAV was 250p, current share price is 190p. This property being sold is worth 50% of the market cap. They say will proceeds of the sale to shareholders.

manfrommoyse - On TJI continuing I doubt it, they said they would return some of the cash and remain listed, so if they wanted to continue this would be how it could happen... It does seem odd - apparently when you wind a dubai based company up that's how you do it...

mfm - # LSR. It is in liquidation mode; anticipated to be by the end of next year. There is still debt to be repaid. The Update next month might clarify matters for you # NBDG. Also in liquidation mode; with clear guidance on timing given in their Qtly Update just yesterday - see above P. No. 564

re TJI - is there is a risk that management might collude with other shareholders and switch to reinvestment (in anything!) post delisting. LSR voted to liquidate and then had a change of heart. Not great share price performance since then (for LSR). It just seems odd if everything is in cash why a residue for potential tax and other creditor liabilities cannot be set aside and a major repayment made prior to delisting (e.g. BGBL) re DCI - I agree, but cant summon the belief to invest more than a pittance as new reasons to lose money keep occuring to the management. tilton boy - do you recall all those projections in DCI reports that showed just how much value was going to be released over time? It might be fun (!) and instructive to take another look now we are a few years down the line. re NBDG - the clue is in the DG. I am keeping an eye on HYG given most investments are in the US. If it continues downwards I may hedge via an IG short, but the yield and interest payments would be considerable. It's tough this investing lark.

It may well be worth re-visiting the case for one of the biggest "dogs" of this decade, which is DCI. The company had very much de-risked itself, with a couple of asset sales (giveaways)over the last year. Admittedly, this further decimated the NAV, but at least it virtually assured survival. After a quiet 8 months, there has at last been some newsflow. On 2nd November, the company announced that the ultra-luxury operator One & Only, were partnering the development of the Kea Resort. The development and asset management of the project will be undertaken by Dolphin, and DCI will jointly control the project with One&Only. I believe this is a material event, and with Amanzoe performing well, gives a lot more visibility on NAV. The sale of their shareholding in Aristo fell through earlier in the year, but trading has improved, and they have recently been given the green light on a new development: hxxp://www.mononews.gr/news-business-aristo-developers-prasino-gia-iperpoliteli-touristiki-ependisi-stin-ilia/217925 Management expenses remain high, but with an anticipated two year timeline to dispose of all of the assets, there may be an opportunity here. I'm long from a lot higher up, but now believe I might get a substantial recovery. Worth having a look, but don't take my word for it, and always DYOR.

I should post on TJI - it is having a delisting vote - after which you are likely to get 0.60c a share - you can currently buy at 0.50c a share. It needs a liquidator appointed but I recon it should be straightforward (famous last words). more here: hxxps://deepvalueinvestments.wordpress.com/2017/11/13/tejoori-tji-vote-for-delisting-potential-20-quick-gain/

If anyone is looking for a relatively secure 10%pa for the next 2-2.5yrs; then I would urge you to take a look, or look again, at the Global Shares (NBDG - chart in the Header) of the NB Distressed Debt Fund (NBDD). In their Qtly Update issued today the Fund has given some very welcome guidance on the ensuing liquidation. The opening remark is massively encouraging - c90% of NAV is to be distributed over the next 2yrs: Manager Commentary On 31 March 2017, the portfolio ended the investment period and entered its harvest period. In the harvest period the Investment Manager works to restructure, reorganise and reposition the assets in order to maximise the intrinsic value. Although the actual time and realisation values are uncertain as of now, based on our current analysis we expect to distribute 50-60% of current Net Asset Value ("NAV") in 2018, 35-40% in 2019, and the remainder in 2020 To put matters into context, these Gross Redemption Yields (Yields to Maturity) apply from the current offer price of 78.5p (16.5% discount to current NAV), assuming payouts to 31/12/19: # Payout at par (100p) - GRY = 12.08% # Payout at a pretty disgraceful 95p - GRY = 9.41% If they still manage to reach a premium; which really should be achievable, then: # Payout at 105p - GRY = 14.69% A 10%pa return may be of little interest to many; however for those managing SIPPs then NBDG could tick a few boxes. Certainly does for me, so NBDG is my largest holding. NB: 1. This link provides the fuller story of NBDD/NBDG https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=23375285&from=310 2. The NAV is declared daily. Currently at 94p
