This is a very simple idea but for personal accounts only. Arctic Glacier is in liquidation. All operating assets have been sold and the only thing the company currently has is cash. All liabilities have been repaid and interim distributions have been made to equity holders. There is one final distribution to come, which the company will provide an update on in December.
The company is currently holding approximately US$7.1m of cash on hand or ~$0.02/unit. This is calculated as follows:
Post payment of the distribution there is approximately C$9.4m of cash on hand whih equates to ~US$7.1m at current FX rates
There are 350.3m units outstanding
In the October 2019 Monitor report stated that the Monitor would update the court in December regarding the timing of the Final Unitholder Distribution. The final items to resolve are some administrative tax filings which will then allow liquidation of the final entity and payment of the final distribution.
The difference between the last traded price (US$0.0165) and cash on hand is ~24%, which is the gross return on the trade all else being equal. There may be some advisor and final wind-down costs and on the other side of the ledger there will be interest income. In the most recent period cash earned ~C$45k/mth in interest and expenses were a little higher than that.
Given there is no risk on the asset side here (all cash) and there are no liabilities that remain outstanding this is esssentially buying cash at a discount. >20% gross return for a short period of time seems like reasonable risk adjusted return.
I do not hold a position with the issuer such as employment, directorship, or consultancy. I and/or others I advise hold a material investment in the issuer's securities.
