Fund Description

The Market Opportunities Fund is a non-diversified fund that invests all of its investable assets in the Market Opportunities Portfolio, a series of Kinetics Portfolios Trust. Under normal circumstances, the Market Opportunities Portfolio invests at least 65% of its net assets in common stocks, convertible securities, warrants and other equity securities having the characteristics of common stocks (such as American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”), Global Depositary Receipts (“GDRs”) and International Depositary Receipts (“IDRs”)) of U.S. and foreign companies involved in capital markets or related to capital markets, as well as companies involved in the gaming industry. Capital market companies include companies that are engaged in or derive a substantial portion of their revenue from activities with a publicly traded securities exchange, such as equity exchanges and commodity exchanges, including but not limited to clearing firms and brokerage houses. The Market Opportunities Portfolio may also invest in exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) and purchase and write options for hedging purposes and/or direct investment.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio may invest up to 20% of its total assets in convertible and non-convertible debt securities rated below investment grade, also known as junk bonds, or unrated securities that the Investment Adviser has determined to be of comparable quality.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio securities will be selected by the Investment Adviser from companies that are engaged in public exchanges, derivative exchanges, and capital markets; companies that experience operational scale from increased volume such as investment banks, credit card processing companies, electronic payment companies and companies in the gaming industry; and from companies that act as facilitators such as publicly traded expressways, airports, roads and railways. Companies that experience operational scale from increased volume are similar to capital markets companies because they have greater fixed costs than variable costs, operating margins that rise once fixed costs are covered, and an ability to generate higher operating margins once fixed costs are covered (referred to as operating leverage). High operating leverage describes a company’s ability to experience rising profit margins as revenues increase. These companies may be large, medium or small in size if, in the Investment Adviser’s opinion, these companies meet the Market Opportunities Portfolio’s investment criteria. The Investment Adviser seeks to invest in companies with high operating leverage that can expand capacity with negligible or limited associated costs. Generally, high returns on equity, long product life cycles, high barriers to entry and certain degrees of financial gearing are necessary for this. Financial gearing occurs with the use of loans and debt in companies where it is necessary to build capacity and infrastructure before operations can begin. Additionally, the Market Opportunities Portfolio may participate in securities lending arrangements up to 33-1/3% of the securities in its
portfolio with brokers, dealers, and financial institutions (but not individuals) in order to increase the return on its portfolio.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio may invest indirectly in bitcoins exclusively through a Delaware statutory trust (“Grayscale Bitcoin Trust”) that offers exposure to bitcoin. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust offers shares on an ongoing basis through private placements pursuant to the exemption from registration provided by Rule 506(c) under Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Bitcoins are a digital commodity that are not issued by a government, bank or central organization. Bitcoins exist on an online, peer-to-peer computer network (the “Bitcoin Network”) that hosts a public transaction ledger where bitcoin transfers are recorded (the “Blockchain”). Bitcoins have no physical existence beyond the record of transactions on the Blockchain. The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust invests principallyin bitcoins.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio contributed a portion of its holdings in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trustto a wholly-owned and controlled subsidiary organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Cayman Subsidiary”).
The Market Opportunities Portfolio is also the sole shareholder of a wholly owned subsidiary organized under Delaware law (the “Delaware Subsidiary”). The Market Opportunities Portfolio contributed a portion of its holdings in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust to the Delaware Subsidiary. Any net gains that the Delaware Subsidiary recognizes on future sales of the contributed Grayscale Bitcoin Trust shares will be subject to federal and state corporate income tax, but the dividends that the Delaware Subsidiary pays to the Market Opportunities Portfolio (i.e., those gains, net of the tax paid and any other expenses of the Delaware Subsidiary, such as its management and advisory fees) will be eligible to be treated as “qualified dividend income” under the Internal Revenue Code. The Delaware Subsidiary and the Cayman Subsidiary are each referred to herein as a “Subsidiary” and collectively as “Subsidiaries.” Additional information regarding the tax treatment of the Fund is provided in the “Taxes” section of the SAI.
In the future, the Market Opportunities Portfolio may seek to gain additional exposure to the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust that may not produce qualifying income for the Market Opportunities Fund under the Internal Revenue Code if directly held. The Market Opportunities Portfolio will not make any additional investments in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust if as a result of such investment, its aggregate investment in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, either directly or through a Subsidiary, would be more than 15% of its assets at the time of investment. However, the Portfolio’s investment in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust may, at times, exceed 15% of its net assets, due to appreciation.
Each Subsidiary invests primarily in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust. The Market Opportunities Portfolio will invest in its Subsidiaries in a manner that is consistent with the limitations of the federal tax laws, rules and regulations that apply to the Market Opportunities Fund as a “regulated investment company” (“RIC”) under Subchapter M of Subtitle A, Chapter 1, of the Internal Revenue Code (“Subchapter M”). However, the Market Opportunities Portfolio and each Subsidiary comply with the same fundamental investment restrictions on an aggregate basis, to the extent those restrictions are applicable to the investment activities of each Subsidiary. Each Subsidiary also complies with Section 17 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) relating to affiliated transactions and custody. Unlike the Market Opportunities Fund, each Subsidiary does not, and will not, seek to qualify as a RIC. The Market Opportunities Portfolio is the sole shareholder of each Subsidiary and does not expect shares of the Subsidiaries to be offered or sold to other investors.
Sell decisions are generally triggered by either adequate value being achieved, as determined by the Investment Adviser, or by an adverse change in a company’s operating performance or a deterioration of
the company’s business model. A sell trigger may also occur if the Investment Adviser discovers a new investment opportunity that it believes is more compelling and represents a greater risk reward profile than other investment(s) held by the Market Opportunities Portfolio.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio may maintain during a temporary period, which could be for a short period or a longer period lasting several years or more, of abnormal conditions, a significant portion of its total assets in cash and securities, generally considered to be cash and cash equivalents, including, but not limited to: high quality, U.S. short-term debt securities and money market instruments. The Investment Adviser will invest in such short-term cash positions to the extent that the Investment Adviser is unable to find sufficient investments meeting its criteria and when the Investment Adviser believes the purchase of additional equity securities would not further the investment objective of the Market Opportunities Portfolio during such periods of time. Additionally, to respond to adverse market, economic, political or other conditions, which may persist for short or long periods of time, the Market Opportunities Portfolio may invest up to 100% of its assets in the types of high quality, U.S. short-term debt securities and money market instruments described above.
If the market advances during periods when the Market Opportunities Portfolio is holding a large cash position, the Portfolio may not participate as much as it would have if it had been more fully invested in securities. In the aforementioned temporary defensive periods, the Investment Adviser believes that an additional amount of liquidity in the Market Opportunities Portfolio is desirable both to meet operating requirements and to take advantage of new investment opportunities. When the Market Opportunities Portfolio holds a significant portion of assets in cash and cash equivalents, it may not meet its investment objective.
The Market Opportunities Portfolio held 48.6% of its net assets in the Texas Pacific Land Corporation (the “Land Corporation”) as of March 31, 2023. The Land Corporation is a corporation organized under the laws of the state of New York. One of the largest land owners in Texas, the Land Corporation derives most of its income from oil and gas royalty revenue, land easements and water royalties and sales. The Land Corporation has historically operated with minimal operating expenses, little to no debt and utilized cash flow to return capital to unitholders through share repurchases and dividends. While the Land Corporation has held the majority of its assets since its formation in 1888, the development of energy resources subject to its royalty interests and related land use have experienced rapid growth in recent years due to advances in energy exploration and extraction technologies.
