Baronsmead Venture Trust (BVT) AGM 2020

Yesterday (26/2/2020) I attended the Annual General Meeting of the Baronsmead Venture Trust (BVT) held at Saddlers Hall in the City of London. It was reasonably well attended. I will just report on the major issues: The Net Asset Value Total Return for last year I calculate to be -2.7% which is certainly disappointing. Note that it is annoying that they do not provide this figure in the Annual Report which is a key measure of the performance of any VCT and ...

dotdigital (DOTD) AGM 2019

This morning I attended the DotDigital (DOTD) Annual General Meeting. I have held shares in the company for some years and it has made steady progress. Sales last year were up 15% (including discontinued operations) at £42 million and adjusted earnings up 33% with positive cash flow. The company originally focused on an email service for use in marketing, newsletter distribution, etc, but is now a multi-channel communication service. They acquired a company called Comapi to add functionality in that area last year ...

Bioventix (BVXP) AGM 2019

After the euphoria of a sweeping Conservative election victory, at least for stock market investors, it’s back to more humdrum business. Here’s a report on the Annual General Meeting of Bioventix (BVXP) which was held yesterday. Bioventix is developer of antibodies used in medical diagnostics. It’s a small company with only 12 employees but revenue was up 16% last year to £9.3 million and EPS up by 3.7%. Talking to CEO Peter Harrison before the meeting, he indicated there would be no problems ...

Sabien Technology (AIM:SNT) AGM 2019

Last week I attended the AGM of Sabien Technology (LSE: SNT). Since the meeting, I now hold a small speculative position in the stock, as the outcome will either be very bad for shareholders, or deliver large returns. Given that the board were out in force at this meeting, it would be strange if delivering value was not their intention. The meeting was attended by myself, Dan Smith, Myles McNulty, Robin Mayes, Space Robot (name protected as he is anonymous on Twitter), ...

Crown Place VCT (CRWN) AGM 2019

This year’s Crown Place VCT AGM was held on Wednesday 27th November 2019 at 12:00 at The Charterhouse – www.thecharterhouse.org – close to Farringdon rail and tube station, Barbican tube station and Albion’s office in Benjamin Street. I would estimate that there were around 40 to 50 private investors present. The Annual Report and Accounts for year ending 30th June 2019 can be found here: https://www.albion.capital/sites/default/files/reports/attachments/... The Interim Management Statement to 30th September 2019 was also released in the morning just before the AGM ...

Revolution Bars Group (RBG) AGM 2019

I attended the Revolution Bars Group (RBG) AGM on 26th November. I don’t own shares in RBG, but believe it to be a binary play. At the current market cap of £33.2 million at a price of 66.4 pence per share, the price could triple and still be a relatively small company. However, trading in recent years has been volatile. I do not hold the stock but attended the AGM to meet management and ask a few questions. The only reason I feel ...

Murray Income Trust (MUT) AGM 2019

This was a very well attended AGM in The Leonardo Royal Hotel close to St Paul's Cathedral, which had been advertised quite widely. This is a good way to increase attendance and to make the AGM as useful as possible. I hope more companies will follow Murray Income's fine example.   I estimate there were well over 100 people attending. After a brief introduction by the Chair, Neil Rogan, most of the time was given to the fund manager Charles Luke, who has ...

City of London Investment Group (CLIG) AGM 2019

I attended the City of London Investment Group (CLIG) Annual General Meeting this morning (21st October) – not of course to be confused with other City of London companies. CLIG is primarily an investment company that invests in Closed End funds/trusts via a very specific process. It encourages such trusts to close any discount to NAV. Historically it has had a strong focus on emerging markets funds but has been diversifying into other markets and into REITS more recently. Barry Oliff was ...

Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) AGM 2019

Today (17th October) I attended the Annual General Meeting of Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT). This is an IT company that I bought a few shares in a couple of years ago as an EIS investment. It was loss-making then, and still is but is getting near break-even. There were only about half a dozen shareholders present, but they had lots of questions. I only cover the important ones here. New Chairman James Appleby chaired the meeting reasonably well, but left most of ...

Van Elle AGM (VANL) AGM report 2019

Van Elle Holdings (VANL), a leading UK piling and ground engineering contractor, is yet another relative newcomer to the AIM market which has never come close to fulfilling expectations. A trip to its AGM, held on September 12, gave a chance to check out whether there is any recovery potential in a company whose market cap has shrunk from £80m at the time of its October 2016 IPO to around £30m currently. The AGM, held at 10.00am at the London offices of ...
