Jim Roumell of Roumell Asset Management presented his in-depth investment thesis on Dundee Corporation (Canada: DC.A) at Best Ideas 2020.
Dundee Corporation offers a large margin of safety to a conservative-case net asset value in a sum-of-the-parts analysis. Dundee is principally a passive investor in a slimmed-down portfolio, with interesting core assets, anchored by ~20% ownership of publicly-traded Dundee Precious Metals (Canada: DPM), the proportional market value of which recently approximated the total enterprise value of Dundee Corporation.
The company has no real capital commitments going forward as a result of monetization and restructuring events executed over the past few years. Moreover, Dundee is in front of more monetization events and likely share buybacks given the company’s commitment to deliver value to shareholders after several years of destroying capital (under previous managements).
Dundee has no funded debt, and leverage is solely via perpetual preferred stock that has no maturity date, allowing the company to control a significant number of assets with the benefit of a permanent capital structure. Dundee enjoys the benefits of leverage without the typical risks, i.e., refinancing.
