Pricey fellow traders and associates,

Through the fourth quarter the fund gained 6.3% gross of charges 1. We do not need a said benchmark in our Key Investor Data Doc (KIID) and due to this fact can not touch upon relative efficiency. We go away it as much as you to resolve. We be aware the above quantity seems just like European and international 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 yr 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’ll attain our compound return aspiration over time. Our fund’s composition is in contrast to any index, and we’re unlikely to carry out in an analogous method.

The fourth quarter’s efficiency was fairly the other of the third quarter, with a weak begin and a robust 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 increased 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 assume there needs to be a value of capital. The hope and dream traders who require unfavourable actual charges to justify absurd valuations and speculative habits 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 moreover massively misallocate capital. We wouldn’t be stunned if inflation stays sticky, albeit at a low degree (see our earlier commentary), or if the market begins being attentive to the big sums governments have to situation to help their ever-ballooning deficits. It will likely be attention-grabbing 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.

Shifting on to extra attention-grabbing matters, let’s talk about Japan. Japan has been one of many most cost-effective markets lately which could possibly be ascribed to low development, declining inhabitants, poor company governance, poor capital allocation, unstable financial coverage, and crushing authorities debt ranges (in distinction to strong 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.

Up to now few years, we’ve got discovered a number of attention-grabbing Japanese corporations that we thought is perhaps very compelling investments. Nonetheless, we selected to not put money into lots of them as a result of problems of doing the kind of deep due diligence that we love to do and the very fact, most are low cost for an excellent cause: poor capital allocation. Smaller Japanese corporations usually do not need English filings, and plenty of do not need investor relations or administration contact data. If you happen to managed to get in contact, calls are finished through translator (even when they communicate English) during which an hour of time spent serves lower than 1 / 4 of the data usually garnered. There isn’t any sell- facet protection, little on Google, web sites appear like they’re from the Nineteen Nineties and customarily lack helpful data. Subsequently, except they’ve a US listed peer – it’s a painful expertise. Typically, it shortly turns into evident why it’s low cost: the topline is usually stagnant and the corporate merely builds money on its stability sheet in a zero-interest charge atmosphere. Do they make investments extra within the enterprise? Not likely. Do they develop overseas through M&A? Nope. Do they purchase again shares? Hahaha. Do they enhance 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% achieve (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 the direction of shareholders. They began allocating capital for development whereas adopting pleasant shareholder remuneration insurance policies via elevated dividends and shopping for again shares. They even linked administration compensation to the share value! They’d a fairly well-thought-out mid-term plan. Nonetheless, we had researched dozens of corporations 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 will acknowledge the worth.

Issues have been bettering lately, however this got here to a head in 2023. Whereas the federal government has put smooth strain to enhance boardroom habits, with extra unbiased board members and lowered 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 guide worth (consider all these money piles and cross fairness holdings) with low returns on fairness. The inventory alternate now requires corporations to reveal capital effectivity enchancment plans and if they’re buying and selling under guide worth, how they plan to enhance their ratio above one. Moreover, the alternate added extra strain in December by requiring disclosure over the rationale for having listed subsidiaries and the way they plan to maintain them unbiased. Mr. Yamaji has demanded that they have interaction with shareholders and take heed to their concepts. Additional, the inventory alternate is now posting a “identify and disgrace” 3 regime to level out these that aren’t complying (in typical Japanese vogue they’re truly itemizing these which can be complying however none-the-less I doubt many CEOs need to NOT be on the checklist).

We have now been busy prior to now few months and certainly corporations 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 enhance in 2024. It’s doable, though not at all sure, that there is perhaps 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 stability sheets are cleaned up and corporates use their money piles to put money into their companies or enhance shareholder remuneration. The capex of 1 firm is the gross sales and earnings of one other thus: the stagnant money piles ought to due to this fact assist encourage development of the economic system. Likewise, distributing the money to traders will increase the wealth impact and enhance spending all through the economic system. All of it will increase tax receipts enabling the federal government to decrease its debt and increase spending. We expect this could possibly be a significant development driver for what has been a quite stagnant economic system. This is perhaps a watershed second for Japanese corporates to develop overseas and to open the economic system to international investments. We expect this may additionally strengthen the Japanese yen because the economic 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 about for a giant 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 probably rerate within the coming years as Japanese corporates start to take a look at efficiencies and capital allocation extra like their US counterparts.

One other a part of our portfolio during which we’ve got been very lively is our particular conditions bucket. Following the profitable spins of Telekom Austria and Companhia Brasileira de Distribuição (CBD), we’re additionally very excited a couple of new alternative within the spin-off of Syensqo from Solvay (OTCQX:SVYSF), which occurred in December, and we’ll element later on this letter. One other of our long-term holdings, which has morphed right into a particular scenario 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, during which we acquired €8.9 per share in dividends in the middle of 18 months. We as soon as once more started rising 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 overview. The end result of which was revealed in December, with the whole 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 all the European nitrogen enterprise free of charge.

We exited a small place in Canadian listed Logistec (OTCPK:LTKBF). We bought the shares after the corporate introduced a strategic overview of the enterprise. We thought that the belongings have been of very prime quality and that their future cashflow potential was increased than that ascribed by the market. Nonetheless, the strategic overview 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 gasoline firm for a brand new place in a London-listed Greek- Israeli oil and gasoline firm which had offered 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 be aware 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 value of €90. The spin-off cut up the legacy Solvay into worth and development models and has created two totally different funding alternatives.

Regardless of the spin-off-related worth realization, we stay invested in each legs since they provide attention-grabbing 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 have been in line because the will increase in container terminal, towage and offshore base revenues have been offset by the decline in logistics revenues pushed by decrease freight charges. Nonetheless, EBIT elevated by 10%, pushed by price reductions. The offshore vessel joint-venture additionally contributed positively as we outlined final quarter. Through the fourth quarter of 2023, Wilson Sons (PORT3 BS) share value elevated by 24.8% (27.6% together with dividend) whereas the newest reported portfolio worth was roughly regular. Consequently, the sum-of-parts worth elevated accordingly, maintaining the low cost at 52%. Ocean’s Wilson RNS reiterated that the strategic overview of the Wilson Sons asset stays ongoing and that they’ve acquired a number of indicative non-binding presents. On condition 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. Through the third quarter, gross sales elevated by 2.6% pushed primarily by service income, whereas EBITDA elevated by 0.6%, regardless of opposed international alternate, increased restructuring bills and one-offs. Administration reported an adjusted EBITDA development of 6%. The impression 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 steerage for 2023 with gross sales development round 5% and capex (excluding spectrum investments) round €950 million. For 2024-26, administration confirmed their mid-term expectations for income development at 3-4% and EBITDA development 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 stream technology leaves ample room for dividend will increase therefore we see a big 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 stable 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 in step with market expectations given market weak point in Europe, China and South America. Nonetheless, we be aware that primarily based on world metal information, November was the primary month that the majority 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 expect 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 guide stays at regular ranges with restricted indicators of a restoration in demand volumes in 2024, as international building exercise continues to be weak and demand within the auto market stays under pre-pandemic ranges. M&A has elevated internet debt to roughly €430 million, however administration expects leverage to stay consistent with the goal vary of two.0-2.5x. We proceed to see important upside primarily based on our free money stream 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 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 have 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 expertise supplier, which we launched in our first quarter 2020 letter. Within the third quarter, IGT reported each gross sales and EBITDA above consensus primarily because of robust efficiency within the Gaming and PlayDigital segments. The basics stay robust, whereas leverage reached a historic low degree. Administration confirmed the higher finish of earlier steerage and maintained the margin outlook. Probably the shortage of an replace concerning the strategic overview pushed the share value decrease. The administration said their frustration concerning the present valuation ranges and their willingness to unlock worth. We proceed to imagine that IGT is buying and selling at a big low cost, regardless of the conclusion of the strategic overview. Nonetheless, a possible break up would speed up worth realization. We be aware that 4.2% of the loss was FX as a result of weak greenback.

The second largest detractor was LNA Santé (-18.8% -67 bps), the French nursing dwelling and healthcare services 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 development continued to be robust at 4.1% and the corporate reiterated their full yr gross sales steerage. We famous in our final letter that Clariane (previously generally known as Korian) adopted Orpea down the restructuring route. We imagine that is probably the explanation for the poor share efficiency as traders flee the sector given the extraordinarily poor final result for fairness holders within the two restructurings. We have now gone via LNA’s debt and actual property intimately and imagine that they’ve a unique 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 yr. We stay vigilant and can proceed to check our assumptions, however we imagine the share value 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 can be leaders of their respective areas. A sequence of acquisition associated write-offs, litigation, excessive leverage and an agricultural downturn has penalized the share value. 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 vary the established order, we really feel that the administration change could possibly be a yr too late. Bayer has been a perennial disappointer for us therefore we’ve got determined to step apart and look forward to additional readability.

The fourth important detractor was an undisclosed (-22.2% -28 bps) fertilizer firm. Following a really robust 2022 during which 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 expect the availability/demand stability 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 bettering on line casino gross gaming income (‘GGR’) momentum, reaching MOP183.1 billion in 2023, up 333.8% year- on-year as Covid restrictions have been nonetheless in place all through 2022. Macau’s cumulative GGR continues to be but to totally get better notably as a result of structurally modified junket/VIP market and the slower than anticipated China restoration. S&P World forecasts that mass- section GGR will likely be 5-15% above the pre-Covid buying and selling in 2024, implying 20-30% year-on-year development, virtually absolutely compensating for the completely misplaced junket enterprise. Based mostly on that, they count on the six concessionaires’ EBITDA to succeed in 95% of 2019 ranges in 2024. Administration lately restated their intention to pay down debt. Therefore, the anticipated mass-market development ought to permit for decrease leverage going ahead. On a optimistic be aware, this was the second quarter of debt discount after 12 consecutive quarters of accelerating internet debt as a result of expansionary capital expenditure through the COVID downturn. We imagine regardless of the apparently slower Chinese language economic 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 cut 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 stream and stability sheet restore. Underneath her management, Solvay delivered double-digit EBITDA development and 18 consecutive quarters of optimistic money stream. As soon as the corporate was in higher form, the board, led by the founding household via their holding firm Solvac, determined to understand 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 comparable traits and strategic priorities permitting for lowered complexity and extra centered capital allocation.

The brand new Solvay will likely be centered on the important chemical area and will likely be comprised of 5 enterprise models. Soda ash is the most important unit, accounting for 42% of gross sales and nearly all 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 pretty 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 most important 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 of first rate money turbines 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 take care of its asset base and reward shareholders primarily via 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 Client & Assets 48%. Syensqo produces high-performance polymers, carbon-fiber composite supplies and surfactants for a variety 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 technology will likely be primarily used to fund development tasks and bolt-on M&A.

Previous to the spin-off, Solvay was buying and selling at a big low cost to the sum-of-parts worth and a excessive free money stream yield, given its development outlook. We agreed with the board’s evaluation that there was a considerable low cost to the sum-of-parts worth. In actual fact, Solvay was buying and selling under our evaluation of Syensqo alone, therefore we have been getting legacy Solvay free of charge. Our preliminary involvement was concentrating on that worth realization. Submit spin-off, the separation into worth and development models has created two totally 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 corporations, since we imagine they proceed to supply an attention-grabbing upside, each buying and selling at mid-cycle free cashflow yields of over 10%.

As said in our earlier letter, we’re at the moment not charging a administration charge till the fund reaches a bigger measurement. The founder’s class administration charge will then be just one% of belongings. We don’t cost entry or exit commissions regardless of our KIID saying it’s theoretically doable.
