Expensive fellow traders and buddies,

In the course of the fourth quarter the fund gained 6.3% gross of charges 1. We should not have a said benchmark in our Key Investor Info Doc (KIID) and subsequently can’t touch upon relative efficiency. We go away it as much as you to resolve. We notice the above quantity seems much like European and world benchmarks. Inception to quarter finish return was 50.0% or 8.9% compounded annual return. Our final reported NAV at quarter- finish was 15.00 (28/12/2023), +6.8% from the closest reported NAV on the third quarter finish of 14.05 (28/09/2023). Our full 12 months return was 13.1% gross of charges 1 and our NAV return was 12.0% (NAV of 15.00 on 28/12/2023 versus finish of 2022 NAV of 13.39 on 29/12/2022). We’re extraordinarily optimistic about our portfolio’s prospects and imagine we are going to attain our compound return aspiration over time. Our fund’s composition is not like any index, and we’re unlikely to carry out in an identical method.

NAV chart

The fourth quarter’s efficiency was fairly the alternative of the third quarter, with a weak begin and a powerful end. The fund was down -4.3% in October after which up +3.96% in November and completed +6.9% in December. Ostensibly, the market sell-off in October was linked to larger bond yields adopted by the market discounting important cuts in 2024.

We take no view on the longer term path of rates of interest and make no funding selections primarily based on their path. We discover the fascination the market has with each small change to be considerably ridiculous. We’re fairly completely happy to have optimistic actual rates of interest and suppose there needs to be a price of capital. The hope and dream traders who require adverse actual charges to justify absurd valuations and speculative conduct look like the incremental day by day purchaser or vendor and management the market narrative. We hope central bankers maintain a cool head and don’t return to earlier insurance policies, which we imagine do little in addition to massively misallocate capital. We wouldn’t be stunned if inflation stays sticky, albeit at a low stage (see our earlier commentary), or if the market begins being attentive to the massive sums governments have to difficulty to help their ever-ballooning deficits. It is going to be fascinating to see if the voting inhabitants notices that curiosity expense is changing into one of many largest authorities expenditures and public borrowing ranges are quickly changing into unsustainable.

Transferring on to extra fascinating matters, let’s focus on Japan. Japan has been one of many least expensive markets in recent times which could possibly be ascribed to low progress, declining inhabitants, poor company governance, poor capital allocation, unstable financial coverage, and crushing authorities debt ranges (in distinction to sturdy personal financial savings by shoppers and companies). Many know the widow-maker commerce of shorting Japanese authorities debt in addition to the favored, however usually unsuccessful try by worth traders to capitalize on lowly valued equities. We imagine that is altering.

Prior to now few years, we’ve got discovered a number of fascinating Japanese firms that we thought is likely to be very compelling investments. Nonetheless, we selected to not spend money on a lot of them because of the problems of doing the kind of deep due diligence that we love to do and the very fact, most are low cost for a superb cause: poor capital allocation. Smaller Japanese firms usually should not have English filings, and plenty of should not have investor relations or administration contact info. In case you managed to get in contact, calls are finished by way of translator (even when they converse English) wherein an hour of time spent serves lower than 1 / 4 of the knowledge usually garnered. There isn’t a sell- facet protection, little on Google, web sites seem like they’re from the Nineteen Nineties and customarily lack helpful info. Subsequently, except they’ve a US listed peer – it’s a painful expertise. Usually, it shortly turns into evident why it’s low cost: the topline is commonly stagnant and the corporate merely builds money on its steadiness sheet in a zero-interest price setting. Do they make investments extra within the enterprise? Probably not. Do they increase overseas by way of M&A? Nope. Do they purchase again shares? Hahaha. Do they improve their dividends? Nope.

We made just one Japanese funding at PHC up till 2023, C Uyemura (OTCPK:CUYRF), which we exited within the fourth quarter with 157.5% acquire (204.3% in yen). We wrote about our thesis in our second quarter 2021 letter. The principle level was a change of their perspective in direction of shareholders. They began allocating capital for progress whereas adopting pleasant shareholder remuneration insurance policies by elevated dividends and shopping for again shares. They even linked administration compensation to the share worth! That they had a fairly well-thought-out mid-term plan. Nonetheless, we had researched dozens of firms earlier than discovering it. A lot of the relaxation match our standards outdoors of this important capital allocation space and we noticed no change that might acknowledge the worth.

Issues have been enhancing in recent times, however this got here to a head in 2023. Whereas the federal government has put mushy stress to enhance boardroom conduct, with extra impartial board members and diminished crossholdings, a brand new chief emerged on this battle. The brand new CEO of the Japanese Inventory Alternate (‘JPEX’), Hiromi Yamaji2, has overtly criticized the company institution. He has focused any firm buying and selling under e-book worth (consider all these money piles and cross fairness holdings) with low returns on fairness. The inventory trade now requires firms to reveal capital effectivity enchancment plans and if they’re buying and selling under e-book worth, how they plan to enhance their ratio above one. Moreover, the trade added extra stress in December by requiring disclosure over the rationale for having listed subsidiaries and the way they plan to maintain them impartial. Mr. Yamaji has demanded that they interact with shareholders and hearken to their concepts. Additional, the inventory trade is now posting a “title and disgrace” 3 regime to level out these that aren’t complying (in typical Japanese style they’re truly itemizing these which are complying however none-the-less I doubt many CEOs need to NOT be on the record).

We now have been busy up to now few months and certainly firms have been extra prepared to talk with us and reply our questions than beforehand. We now have over 8% of the portfolio in Japan and wouldn’t rule out that this would possibly improve in 2024. It’s attainable, though on no account sure, that there is likely to be a multi-year bull marketplace for worth shares in Japan. Certainly, none aside from Warren Buffett made giant investments in Japan in August 20204, which he elevated in 20235.

We see the potential for a optimistic self-reinforcing cycle as steadiness sheets are cleaned up and corporates use their money piles to spend money on their companies or improve shareholder remuneration. The capex of 1 firm is the gross sales and earnings of one other thus: the stagnant money piles ought to subsequently assist encourage progress of the financial system. Likewise, distributing the money to traders will enhance the wealth impact and improve spending all through the financial system. All of it will enhance tax receipts enabling the federal government to decrease its debt and enhance spending. We predict this could possibly be a significant progress driver for what has been a quite stagnant financial system. This is likely to be a watershed second for Japanese corporates to develop overseas and to open the financial system to overseas investments. We predict this may also strengthen the Japanese yen because the financial system strengthens and permit financial coverage to normalize. Moreover, the federal government has revamped their NISA6, or the Nippon Particular person Financial savings Account, which is a Japanese authorities tax-free inventory funding program for people which is ready for an enormous overhaul in January. It goals to show the trillions of yen held in money by households into investments in inventory markets 7 and which is nice timing as shares will possible rerate within the coming years as Japanese corporates start to have a look at efficiencies and capital allocation extra like their US counterparts.

One other a part of our portfolio wherein we’ve got been very energetic is our particular conditions bucket. Following the profitable spins of Telekom Austria and Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição (CBD), we’re additionally very excited a few new alternative within the spin-off of Syensqo from Solvay (OTCQX:SVYSF), which occurred in December, and we are going to element later on this letter. One other of our long-term holdings, which has morphed right into a particular state of affairs is OCI (OTC:OCINF), the Dutch nitrogen fertilizer and methanol producer, launched in our second quarter 2019 letter and additional up to date in our fourth quarter 2021 letter., We had lowered publicity considerably over the course of 2022 and the primary quarter of 2023 after a bumper 2022, wherein we obtained €8.9 per share in dividends in the midst of 18 months. We as soon as once more started growing our stake as Jeff Uben of Inclusive Capital (previously of ValueAct) wrote to the board demanding they unlock worth. Chairman and majority proprietor Nassef Sawiris, ever the dealmaker, obliged and instigated a portfolio evaluate. The result of which was revealed in December, with the entire sale of their 50% stake of Abu Dhabi listed Fertiglobe to ADNOC for $3.6 billion plus earn-outs adopted quickly by the sale of Iowa Fertilizer Firm to Koch Industries for $3.6 billion8. Whereas the market re-rated the shares from horribly depressed ranges, it’s nonetheless roughly valuing the corporate near the worth of the 2 offers, leaving the Texas blue ammonia plant, the methanol enterprise in addition to your complete European nitrogen enterprise at no cost.

We exited a small place in Canadian listed Logistec (OTCPK:LTKBF). We bought the shares after the corporate introduced a strategic evaluate of the enterprise. We thought that the property had been of very top quality and that their future cashflow potential was larger than that ascribed by the market. Nonetheless, the strategic evaluate concluded with a buyout at ranges solely barely above our entry level, which we expect was an excellent deal for the customer however left us with a meagre return.

One other portfolio reshuffle that we undertook with a slight particular sits angle was our sale of a UK primarily based oil and fuel firm for a brand new place in a London-listed Greek- Israeli oil and fuel firm which had bought off massively from an already low cost valuation in early October.

We exited a number of positions to make room for our Japanese basket. These included Bayer (OTCPK:BAYRY), which was changing into more and more problematic, Nice Eagle (OTCPK:GEAHF), which is affected by the downturn within the Hong Kong actual property market, MDU Assets, which accomplished the spin-off of Knife River (KNF) and was buying and selling close to truthful worth and an undisclosed fertilizer firm.

At quarter-end our portfolio had greater than 109% upside to our estimated NAV and was buying and selling at a weighted common P/E of 8.1x, FCF/EV yield of 16% and a return on tangible capital of 30%.

The highest contributor through the quarter was Solvay (+56.4% +116 bps), the Belgian chemical substances conglomerate, which we introduce later on this letter. We notice the efficiency is overstated because it spun off Syensqo, its specialty chemical substances enterprise, which was a slight detractor with -19 foundation factors. Syensqo was spun-out of Solvay through the quarter on the quite arbitrary worth of €90. The spin-off break up the legacy Solvay into worth and progress models and has created two completely different funding alternatives.

Regardless of the spin-off-related worth realization, we stay invested in each legs since they provide fascinating upside.

The second largest contributor was Ocean Wilson (+23.8% +107 bps), the Bermuda-based funding firm with port and tugboat operations in Brazil, which we launched in our third quarter 2023 letter. Third quarter revenues of Wilson Sons had been in line because the will increase in container terminal, towage and offshore base revenues had been offset by the decline in logistics revenues pushed by decrease freight charges. Nonetheless, EBIT elevated by 10%, pushed by value reductions. The offshore vessel joint-venture additionally contributed positively as we outlined final quarter. In the course of the fourth quarter of 2023, Wilson Sons (PORT3 BS) share worth elevated by 24.8% (27.6% together with dividend) whereas the most recent reported portfolio worth was roughly regular. Consequently, the sum-of-parts worth elevated accordingly, retaining the low cost at 52%. Ocean’s Wilson RNS reiterated that the strategic evaluate of the Wilson Sons asset stays ongoing and that they’ve obtained a number of indicative non-binding presents. Provided that the Wilson Sons market worth (£19 per share at quarter-end) is above the worth of Ocean Wilson (£11.85), the holding firm, and the market assigns zero worth to the funding portfolio (£5). We stay assured within the draw back safety whereas ready for administration to shut the low cost.

The third important contributor was Telekom Austria (+15.9% +94 bps), the Austrian and Japanese European telecoms group, launched in our first quarter 2023 letter. In the course of the third quarter, gross sales elevated by 2.6% pushed primarily by service income, whereas EBITDA elevated by 0.6%, regardless of adversarial overseas trade, larger restructuring bills and one-offs. Administration reported an adjusted EBITDA progress of 6%. The affect of the spin-off on the third quarter numbers was quite restricted because it was accomplished only a few days previous to the quarter-end. Therefore, we’re but to see the standalone numbers for each entities. Administration confirmed steering for 2023 with gross sales progress round 5% and capex (excluding spectrum investments) round €950 million. For 2024-26, administration confirmed their mid-term expectations for income progress at 3-4% and EBITDA progress at 4-5% with capex remaining round present ranges. The bottom dividend wasn’t affected by the spin-off and administration implied potential will increase through the newest Capital Markers Day. We proceed to imagine that robust money move era leaves ample room for dividend will increase therefore we see a major upside potential forward.

The fourth largest contributor was RHI Magnesita (OTC:RMGNF, +14.9% +59 bps), the Austrian-Brazilian refractories firm, which we launched in our second quarter 2019 letter. RHI reported a strong third quarter with a better-than-expected EBITA margin primarily based on extra resilient pricing and accretive M&A. Quantity efficiency mirrored regular seasonal elements and was per market expectations given market weak point in Europe, China and South America. Nonetheless, we notice that primarily based on world metal information, November was the primary month that almost all current twelve-month EU metal manufacturing volumes elevated after 23 consecutive declines. Lastly, through the quarter, Rhône Capital accomplished the acquisition of 19.9% of RHI’s shares at £28.5 per share dividend adjusted, changing into the second largest shareholder. We predict their presence on the board ought to have a optimistic affect and their general involvement implies important upside. In keeping with the administration, the order e-book stays at regular ranges with restricted indicators of a restoration in demand volumes in 2024, as world building exercise continues to be weak and demand within the auto market stays under pre-pandemic ranges. M&A has elevated web debt to roughly €430 million, however administration expects leverage to stay in step with the goal vary of two.0-2.5x. We proceed to see important upside primarily based on our free money move projections.

The fifth contributor was Almacenes Éxito (EXTO, +24.6%, +58 bps), the main grocery store participant in Colombia, which we talked about in our third quarter 2023 letter. Éxito was just lately spun-off from Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição (PCAR3 BS), which controls the Grupo Pão de Açúcar supermarkets in Brazil and a 13% stake in Éxito. Each Éxito and CBD are managed by the indebted French grocery store On line casino which owns roughly 41% in every. We mentioned in our third quarter letter that On line casino would need to notice the worth shortly – however even we had been stunned by the pace. After rejecting two presents from a Colombian billionaire, On line casino agreed to promote its stake in Éxito to Grupo Celleja, a number one grocery retailer in El Salvador. The supply valued Éxito at $1,175 billion ($0.9053 per share or roughly R$18.4 per share). We subsequently exited our place, which contributed 69 foundation factors in a comparatively quick time period.

The highest detractor was Worldwide Video games Expertise (IGT, -13.1%, -68 bps), the Italian- American lottery and gaming machine know-how supplier, which we launched in our first quarter 2020 letter. Within the third quarter, IGT reported each gross sales and EBITDA above consensus primarily as a consequence of robust efficiency within the Gaming and PlayDigital segments. The basics stay robust, whereas leverage reached a historic low stage. Administration confirmed the higher finish of earlier steering and maintained the margin outlook. Probably the shortage of an replace relating to the strategic evaluate pushed the share worth decrease. The administration said their frustration in regards to the present valuation ranges and their willingness to unlock worth. We proceed to imagine that IGT is buying and selling at a major low cost, regardless of the conclusion of the strategic evaluate. Nonetheless, a possible break up would speed up worth realization. We notice that 4.2% of the loss was FX because of the weak greenback.

The second largest detractor was LNA Santé (-18.8% -67 bps), the French nursing dwelling and healthcare amenities operator, which we launched in our fourth quarter 2022 letter. This was the second quarter the place LNA was a prime 5 detractor. Operationally, the corporate continues to carry out properly. Regardless of a slow-down within the clinic enterprise within the third quarter, administration has already said that it has picked up once more. The gross sales progress continued to be robust at 4.1% and the corporate reiterated their full 12 months gross sales steering. We famous in our final letter that Clariane (previously often called Korian) adopted Orpea down the restructuring route. We imagine that is possible the explanation for the poor share efficiency as traders flee the sector given the extraordinarily poor end result for fairness holders within the two restructurings. We now have gone by LNA’s debt and actual property intimately and imagine that they’ve a distinct enterprise mannequin than their bigger friends. Moreover, they’re passing on inflation, albeit slower than the market would really like, and we imagine their margins will return to regular within the coming 12 months. We stay vigilant and can proceed to check our assumptions, however we imagine the share worth response doesn’t mirror the basics of the enterprise and the outlook within the coming years.

The third important detractor was Bayer (-27.8% -59 bps), the German pharmaceutical, agriculture, and client healthcare merchandise conglomerate, which has been typically talked about in our letters as prime contributor and detractor. Bayer consists of three separate companies which are leaders of their respective areas. A sequence of acquisition associated write-offs, litigation, excessive leverage and an agricultural downturn has penalized the share worth. The New CEO got here to avoid wasting the corporate, signaling his intentions to discover a strategic break-up of the enterprise, which the earlier administration was reluctant to debate. Whereas the brand new administration sounds prepared to alter the established order, we really feel that the administration change could possibly be a 12 months too late. Bayer has been a perennial disappointer for us therefore we’ve got determined to step apart and watch for additional readability.

The fourth important detractor was an undisclosed (-22.2% -28 bps) fertilizer firm. Following a really robust 2022 wherein commodity costs skyrocketed and farmer economics improved considerably, there was a concern of shortage which led to over- stocking within the worth chain. This has precipitated a downturn in pricing throughout 2023 and with Russian exports unabated it’s not clear when the downturn will finish. We predict the availability/demand steadiness is probably going to enhance within the coming years, nevertheless, we determined to exit and use the capital in our Japan basket.

The fifth largest detractor was Melco Worldwide (-16.3%, -24 bps), the holding firm of a Macau on line casino operator. Macau continued to see enhancing on line casino gross gaming income (‘GGR’) momentum, reaching MOP183.1 billion in 2023, up 333.8% year- on-year as Covid restrictions had been nonetheless in place all through 2022. Macau’s cumulative GGR remains to be but to completely get better notably because of the structurally modified junket/VIP market and the slower than anticipated China restoration. S&P World forecasts that mass- section GGR might be 5-15% above the pre-Covid buying and selling in 2024, implying 20-30% year-on-year progress, nearly totally compensating for the completely misplaced junket enterprise. Primarily based on that, they anticipate the six concessionaires’ EBITDA to achieve 95% of 2019 ranges in 2024. Administration just lately restated their intention to pay down debt. Therefore, the anticipated mass-market progress ought to enable for decrease leverage going ahead. On a optimistic notice, this was the second quarter of debt discount after 12 consecutive quarters of accelerating web debt because of the expansionary capital expenditure through the COVID downturn. We imagine regardless of the apparently slower Chinese language financial system, that Macau will proceed to get better and that as debt is paid down, the fairness will profit accordingly.

Solvay is a diversified chemical substances group with 160 years of historical past since its founder invented an artificial soda ash manufacturing course of. Previous to the spin-off in December 2023, Solvay was among the many world’s prime ten largest chemical gamers. The break up was orchestrated by its CEO Ms. Kadri, who was appointed in March 2019. She has led a profitable turnaround of the enterprise by specializing in efficiencies, free money move and steadiness sheet restore. Beneath her management, Solvay delivered double-digit EBITDA progress and 18 consecutive quarters of optimistic money move. As soon as the corporate was in higher form, the board, led by the founding household by their holding firm Solvac, determined to appreciate the sum-of-the-parts worth, which was closely discounted, by splitting into two companies. The separation of the commoditized from the particular chemical substances enterprise bundles collectively models with related traits and strategic priorities permitting for diminished complexity and extra centered capital allocation.

The brand new Solvay might be centered on the important chemical area and might be comprised of 5 enterprise models. Soda ash is the biggest unit, accounting for 42% of gross sales and the vast majority of earnings. Solvay is taken into account a worldwide chief in soda ash, a broadly used industrial ingredient, used primarily in glass manufacturing in addition to detergents, electrical automobile batteries and photo voltaic panels. Soda ash is taken into account a sexy money generator, and the corporate is current in each naturally occurring soda ash in addition to the main artificial producer utilizing the Solvay course of. The opposite models of the brand new Solvay embrace peroxides, silica, Coatis and Particular Chemical substances. The peroxides enterprise is taken into account secure in a comparatively consolidated end-industry with Solvay being the biggest participant. Silica and Coatis companies are influenced by the supply-demand dynamics in auto tires and phenolic chemical substances, respectively. Solvay is a worldwide chief in Silica and a Latin America chief in Coatis. All companies are thought-about first rate money mills given robust market shares and well-depreciated asset bases, which require restricted capital expenditures. Finish-market publicity to cyclical industries add some volatility, as do globally traded commodity costs. The brand new Solvay intends to make use of its money to keep up its asset base and reward shareholders primarily by a stable-to-growing dividend.

The newly shaped growth-focused specialty chemical firm, Syensqo, is split into two companies with supplies representing 52% of gross sales and Shopper & Assets 48%. Syensqo produces high-performance polymers, carbon-fiber composite supplies and surfactants for a spread of secure and rising end-markets such aerospace, autos and electronics with 90% of gross sales generated from markets the place the corporate holds a top-three place. They’re additionally leaders in Battery Supplies, Inexperienced Hydrogen, Renewable Supplies and Thermoplastic composites. Syensqo is the expansion story of the spin-off, therefore money era might be primarily used to fund progress initiatives and bolt-on M&A.

Previous to the spin-off, Solvay was buying and selling at a major low cost to the sum-of-parts worth and a excessive free money move yield, given its progress outlook. We agreed with the board’s evaluation that there was a considerable low cost to the sum-of-parts worth. In truth, Solvay was buying and selling under our evaluation of Syensqo alone, therefore we had been getting legacy Solvay at no cost. Our preliminary involvement was concentrating on that worth realization. Put up spin-off, the separation into worth and progress models has created two completely different funding profiles and we imagine each to nonetheless be undervalued, regardless of substantial worth already having been launched. At quarter-end, we remained holders of each firms, since we imagine they proceed to supply an fascinating upside, each buying and selling at mid-cycle free cashflow yields of over 10%.

As said in our earlier letter, we’re at present not charging a administration price till the fund reaches a bigger dimension. The founder’s class administration price will then be only one% of property. We don’t cost entry or exit commissions regardless of our KIID saying it’s theoretically attainable.
