hi guys, just like to check, for those invested in Olam6.75%b180129 US$, have you received the proceeds from the redemption?
Yes I have
making lots of profit from 2009 till now, but never generate free cash flow, so when will the profit convert to cash

or maybe the profit will never generate to cash, that is why the income have been dropping so much recently, to signal the profit will not materialize?
Interestingly, Orbis Funds has increased their stake in Olam and has a 8% stake now.

Orbis is a long term absolute return fund.

Disclosure : I am long Olam, mainly because Temasek is the major shareholder

Good results by Olam.

By the way, I thought Olam was going to be privatised? How come still listed?

Temasek offered to be major shareholder but has no real intention of delisting it.

Olam will probably see much better days but when, I don't know. Hope to sell it off during the next commodity supercycle.
