While the share price has improved significantly since the beginning of 2019, the discount to NAV remains large at a 38% discount.
"We are currently focused on a number of initiatives to enhance market awareness for CGOC and the tremendous investment opportunity that exists. This recent increase in our NAV clearly illustrates the benefit of the diversified and actively managed portfolio of public and private investments. There are a number of near-term catalyst events within the private portfolio which should positively impact our NAV, and as such, demonstrate the value proposition that exists with an investment in CGOC."
