Lucerne Capital proposes comprehensive capital allocation framework at Intertrust AGM

  • Lucerne Capital is in full support of the management team and its strategy as outlined at today’s AGM. Lucerne recognizes that Intertrust’s operational excellence has returned the company onto a solid growth trajectory.
  • We urge the board and shareholders to adopt and implement an appropriate remuneration scheme for management and key employees as soon as possible to the benefit of all stakeholders.
  • However, Lucerne believes that Intertrust is still operating under an outdated capital allocation framework adopted by previous management at time of IPO.
  • We believe this antiquated framework is causing a deeply discounted valuation for Intertrust. On our estimates, Intertrust is one of Europe’s cheapest listed stocks, despite strong operational prospects.
  • Lucerne believes that Intertrust should adopt a predictable capital allocation framework with a focus on buybacks and bolt on M&A instead of fixed dividends today, allowing an acceleration of management’s strategic agenda.
  • We believe that Lucerne’s proposed capital allocation framework as outlined in the attached presentation would benefit all stakeholders, and simultaneously be highly accretive to long term intrinsic value per share.
