Chinook Tyee Industry (TSXV: XCX) emerges from the remnants of Global Railway and the stock is ready for a new beginning.
This is not a blog post for a new Top Idea for Investorfile small cap value stocks (just yet).
Global Railway Industries was a shell of its former self. The small cap growth stock once attracted the attention of many analysts and institutional investors but fell victim to poor management decisions and bad timing in 2008. The Company was forced to divest its assets to pay back substantial bank debts (See: Expect the unexpected from small cap companies with debt). With no operating business left, Global Railway Industries was transformed into a shell company holding a public stock listing and cash.
Last month the final connection to Global Railway Industries was cut. The Company was renamed Chinook Tyee Industry Limited (TSXV: XCX -$0.53). But still present from the old Global entity are legacy shareholders (including myself) who decided for better or worse to hang on to their share holdings with the anticipation that one day the value of owning a publicly traded shell company will surface by way of an acquisition (or roll in) of a viable business opportunity.
It now appears that day may be coming. Why?
The small cap market is on resurgence. This attracts private growth companies who seek immediate access to the capital markets by merging with a publicly listed shell company.
Chinook Tyee Industry is a first-rate public shell company. The Company holds approximately $3.4 million in cash assets ($0.95 per share) and has no contingent liabilities. Currently, Chinook Tyee has only 3.47 million shares outstanding. An amalgamation with an existing business operation and subsequent add-on financing would not entail the issuance of tens of millions of new shares which would significantly dilute existing shareholders.
Chinook Tyee management is currently seeking to identify and evaluate potential businesses opportunities. The Company's new leadership team controls over 35% of the Company's stock paid for at cost base of approximately $0.90 per share and is therefore motivated to realize a return on this investment.
For shareholders of Global Railway the time is now for Chinook Tyee stock to begin a new life.
