Gabelli Value Plus+ Trust aims to seek capital appreciation by investing predominantly in equity securities of U.S. Companies of any market capitalisation.
Potential investments are evaluated using the manager’s “Private Market Value with a Catalyst™” methodology. This comes up with the value that the Manager believes an informed industrial buyer would be willing to pay to acquire the entire company. Having come up with this value, the Manager looks for companies trading at a significant discount and seeks to identify one of more “catalysts” that will help to narrow or eliminate this discount. Catalysts can come in many forms including, but not limited to, corporate restructurings (such as demergers and asset sales), operational improvements, regulatory or managerial changes, special situations (such as liquidations) and mergers and acquisitions.
