The Company holds a portfolio of unquoted investments which are in the process of realisation. The Company is not currently seeking to invest in new opportunities. It continues, with the help of its Fund Manager, to provide management support to the present portfolio. This should enable the focus on realising the maximum value from the portfolio in the near to medium term to be maintained.
An expanded investing policy for the Company was approved at the General meeting held on 05-Oct-11.
Strathdon will consider opportunities to make additional revenues and profits for Shareholders through the provision of intermediation services to external corporate finance transactions. These activities may arise in respect of existing portfolio or other UK companies or assets, in no particular sector, so as to utilise the Directors' expertise in corporate structuring. The intermediation services contemplated will involve Strathdon entering into the purchase of corporate entities followed by the onward divestment of either the shares of those entities or the underlying trading businesses or assets to identified purchasers. Strathdon will not undertake any such transactions without buyers for either the shares or the underlying assets having already been identified and will seek to minimise its ongoing exposure to the underlying trading businesses or assets. It is anticipated that Strathdon will receive fees for the restructuring and winding up of any legacy corporate entities. Strathdon will be providing a service to buyers and sellers of businesses where the respective parties cannot find an acceptable transaction structure that allows the business or assets to be
transferred without Strathdon's involvement. Strathdon anticipates entering into a small number of these transactions over the period of divestment
of its portfolio companies. This will allow further revenue generation to offset the ongoing running costs of Strathdon whilst it is in its divestment period.
