Exited UKC Holdings Corp (TYO:3156)

So UKC hit a valuation of above net current assets a lot sooner than I expected. Not because the share price took of on a rocket, but because the company made large write-downs of receivables and prepayments.

The share has traded up since I took my position, but I feel a bit anxious about the write-downs so I sold. You know “Misfortunes never come singly” – there could be more problems with the books. The need to put together an independent audit committee indicates managerial problems.

Exited at ¥1922, so return of about +17 % in 5 weeks.
