I've not seen the AR, just the RNS. Am I missing something? I'm a bit clearer on the accounts now, I'm thinking that the $0.85m relates to Papua but I'm waiting for gfrae to revert on that. If you allow $1.1m for investment in R&D at the robotics arm, then there's still a million or so of missing "Investments" to explain.

Agreed 100k buy looks like the buyback

100k @ 61.5p ...I read as share buyback probably mopped up most loose stock...see if they get more aggressive.

Just read the AR, bit naughty imo not to write down the value of LSR due to the adverse exchange rates and the share price of 28p at YE compared to the 34p paid. But does explain some of the holes when just reading the RNS.

I think THAL is a bit of a marmite share for many. I sold out my remaining shares today.

Thalassa HoldingsThe trouble with writing long and ethereal statements, especially when the bumf at the top is all about world economies is that sometimes people dont get down to the good bits about your company. When I saw the THAL price first thing I feared the worst, indeed I was about to fling myself overboard until I progressed past the economics lesson. If you do that you get to see that the Chairman has 'cautious but unpredictable optimism' and that 'in 2016 we exceeded performance expectations at every level from sales to the bottom line'. Other positive comments include that the company has the same, asset light, model and its flexible management structure gives remarkable competitive advantages over the competition. So, the shares should be up, not down as the operating side of the company has performed very creditably and continues to do so.....Top stuff Duncan...http://www.malcysblog.com/

Gfrae, Do you have a reference for the $1.3m spent on Papua? I can only see the £400,000 equating to $0.52m. Cheers

...because he paid more than £5.65m - that was what he paid for 16.6m of the 19m that THAL purchased. Using an exchange rate of 1.33 and 0.34p share you get the $8.6m Thanks again

Thanks gfrae - I just did a quick and dirty run through this morning, so it may be that at some point the TDT will pay back the loan (when the shares are issued and paid for I presume). On the other point, I'm a bit lost. THAL has 23.2% of LSR which was purchased for around £5.65m in September 2016. So, how did it end up costing $8.6m? The exchange rate at the time was around $1.33/£.

Frazboy, the $8.6m was for the investment was for LSR on it's own. A further $1.3m was invested Papua. also concerning your point previously about the loan to the discretionary trust,that loan has been written down to the value of the shares when they were 33p. See notes 7,14 and 22 of the accounts for the above. G.

But it is most likely the continuing investment in ARL that accounts for the discrepancy in Frazboy's view, I would expect it to be sucking up capital, so they need to find partners to progress, and hive it off, but essentially Thal is a holding company,, still unless they can create real value I'm not sure of the case for holding on!

There is no excuse for holes in the accounts, DS needs to explain a little clearer, but he seems in his own little world!

Cheers, I think we're in agreement regarding unexplained holes investment wise. Hoping the Annual report will shed light.

WGP is a good asset, and the nodes business offers a lot of potential, best to stay with the oil business, I said GTC would have been a good fit, could have bought if for cash last year, even if the industry is weak at the moment it will recover!

Frazboy, Agree lots of questions regarding the balance sheet: I'm now unsure that the missing $7.5m was spent on PPE - as you say it's only increased PPE by $3m in assets. I estimate at prevailing exchange rates $7.5m was spent on LSR and $0.52m on Papua Mining. At year end these should have been worth approx $6.1m marked to market. That suggests $2.5m ($8.6m-$6.1m)invested in associated entities that we're currently unaware of. In addition we have $0.826m in 'available for sale' investments, again I'm unsure what that is? It will require the AR to have a chance to get to the bottom of it.

That is why DS should have taken the company private, the business with the discretionary trust, his objectives are difficult to fathom, look at his track record, he is an opportunist at heart, that is why this will likely be rated accordingly, the market simply does not reflect value to one-man bands, they play too many tunes!

PJ1 - I'm with you out. I'm out. The share BB may come to the rescue, but I'm not holding my breath. There are other factors that further decrease my confidence in DS - i)The cash position is also much tighter than it may appear once you take Trade and other payables into account ii) He's failed to recognise in the accounts that the loan to the Thal DT (of which I presume he is the main benefactor) is probably non-performing but is still in the accounts as an asset and is used in NAV calculations iii) the above remark on the $7.5m of investment that is missing (post 3860), and the fact that his tangible assets have not risen by a similar amount iv) he wants to take credit for his trading activities, but has not marked his asset purchases at market value (bearing in mind that he, presumably, used dollars which were worth more when than they are now when he made those purchases, and both LSR (not that I have a problem with that purchase), and Papua (ahem..) are below the purchase price. I'll watch from the sidelines - best of luck all holders (except DS)
