Very temporary put up on this.
Again in December 2014 a few of you’ll have invested in Renn Common Development.
It was a liquidating funding belief value £2.95 with a suggestion worth of £2.24 and £1.68 in liquid property. Publish on it’s right here.
It delisted in December 2014 promising to liquidate and pay out. I received £1.27 from the listed shares / money by January 2016 and have simply obtained £1.93 per share. This provides a return up to now of 320p or 43%. Dont suppose there’s any extra to return right here.
Anchor Free was offered in Could 2018 in line with this report from the liquidator however warranties meant that cash couldnt be returned prior to now, some run to 2023. I don’t know how widespread these are. It appears some time, and I believe the liquidators are being conservative, while co-incidentally incomes charges as they wait…
The one drawback is the timescale – doubling my cash on my remaining money (if we exclude what was paid again by January 2016) over 6 years offers a CAGR of 12%. That is higher than the FTSE AS TR which is up about 26%, however far worse than my normal efficiency over the interval – up 200%. I wasn’t conscious of the sale / assured of cash being returned so couldnt lever on this, protected within the data I’d be getting my share.
So… what’s the conclusion? I’m not positive I could make one as this is just one funding. It’s been an fascinating expertise for me – as I’ve by no means held an unlisted firm in formal liquidation this lengthy. In a booming tech bull market I’m shocked Anchor free, maker of the VPN software program Hotspot defend hasn’t achieved higher. It seems different firms have over taken them or non-public market valuations on this area are under public ones. It could additionally present that near-commoditised IT companies should not a great place to be, even when they’ve established a number one place.
In the event you maintain this and havent been credited the cash you would possibly wish to chase it up together with your dealer.
As ever, views appreciated – any comparable experiences on the market?
