Capping a Q209 period where global Hedge funds have reportedly seen the biggest inflows of client money to date, totaling over $142bn. A wave of growth and special situation funds and investors are seeking new strategies to earn High Alpha Returns. "Pre-event stock picking, exclusive Alpha Research Services with low costs and being nimble, are our clients core concerns at the moment", said Ryan Mendy, Senior Advisor of The Spinoff Report [TSR], the UK based, leading global independent research firm on corporate divestitures.
"Continued restructuring of equities has lead to us unearthing a strong pipeline of Spinoffs over the coming year", says Jim Osman, CEO of TSR. "Tracking Spinoffs is one thing, analysing them in a timely and investible manner for their ultimate Alpha value is another, that's how we are different; we offer Hedge Funds a true proven value for money solution, e.g. not getting paid until our clients do!" said Jim.
Huge profits have been achieved by demergers since Q408, including this month's UK listed, Friends Provident, and the demerger of F&C where TSR has returned over 25% to clients in less than a month with their highly detailed analysis. TSR manages a Global Regional Calendar, also providing Snapshots, including event timetables and analysis summaries on each up and coming demerger. With 50 page detailed Research reports on the highest Alpha corporate deals, TSR place a major focus on Directors Dealings and how the management are incentivised to ensure the new Spinoff company delivers maximum returns.
Examples of significant Spinoff strategy returns covered in the past 12 months are: Suez, Fresnillo, Securitas, Time Warner, Walter Industries, Telkom, Vodacom, Hutchison, Rio Tinto and Cardinal Health.
George Budden, a partner at Deloitte, said: "Genuine value can be generated from a demerger, but you only reap what you sow. Companies that take longer than nine months to plan their demerger generate at least two times more value, achieving an average 20 per cent increase in their share price." George recently completed an analysis on every Spinoff since 1998. He also noted that, much is written about demergers, but little has been done to quantify them.
