I donít understand why you guys are still holding the stock. If you estimate the liquidation to return $140 per share, itís only 12% above todayís price and it could be another 2 more years until any distribution is paid.

Is $140 per share your estimate, or are you just referencing that # because it appeared earlier in this thread? My current estimate is meaningfully higher.

I don't think anyone here knows the liquidation timeline, but one thing I would note is that (assuming its stock positions haven't already been sold off) VULC generates a non-trivial amount of cash flow solely from the dividends it receives.

I'm basing it on what others have mentioned.

I guess you never now with this management team, but as long as they continue to own their stock portfolio their assets should more or less generate a market return. So you get the closing of the discount + (or -) the underlying return in the mean time. Secondly, you should think that they should be able to liquidate their stock portfolio faster and distribute the proceeds. But then again... the announced the liquidation last october and nothing has happened so far, so who knows....

Why would the timberland not be at a decent discount to kewl of $550/acre given all the non-timber assets kewl has and its mgmt. The previous kewl comp being used was the sky high purchase price of the old mgmt that was the final bullet in convincing the activist to launch the thread the needle proxy battle that he actually won. Has the broker given any indication if the reserve price is greater than $400?

The company finally put out another press release.

I guess we should be happy that they were generous enough to give shareholders a hint of when a first distribution might be paid...
