what is the catch here ? 50% divi looks stunning and I would be holding in a SIPP and ISA ? I realise there may be some sellers due to tax reasons before the date but anything else I'm missing ? thanks in advance

Electra Partners should start another investment trust. I would invest.

I see that Citywire has published an article stating that private investors are really unhappy. The company is run by a short-term bunch of greedy individuals in my view. Electra were paid very handsomely, but they were bloody good. I have zero confidence that the new Board can return anything like the 12% per annum over 20 years secured by Electra. No chance! Must be one of the few shares to announce such a capital return and the share price go down. The Board does not have private investors in mind at all.

I've never held my shares in an ISA as I'm a personalised CREST holder. Companies do normally show some awareness of making large dividends (which are returns of capital) tax efficient, but not here. I might sell anyway as they have destroyed this investment trust for short term profit. If you are in an ISA you are fine, but buying to get a dividend often leaves you with a capital loss so be careful.

Sorry for being ignorant here. Already hold a few of these, but if I buy more before 7th april does that mean I would get the divi payment on those as well for my ISA? bit confused lol.

What a rubbish announcement. A special dividend of that size is not tax efficient for me. Will need to sell the shares instead. Rubbish short term new management team wrecking a great trust in my view.

Is anyone happy with this new Board? - I think the Sherborne lot are RUBBISH. Why are we throwing the towel in on an investment strategy that has returned 13% per annum long term. It really is a nonsense. I'm going to vote against everything they propose, not that it will make any difference! Looks like this is the end of Electra Partners and the team will disband.

I think Sherborne are going way to far here. Electra is a top performing private equity investment trust. We do NOT need a change in investment manager. Its about time other holders fought back.

Mr Bramson is going for the jugular by increasing their holding today to 30.51%!

Thank you Mr Bramson for the 38p dividend! Of course what Bramson recognized is that the valuations placed on the investments in the books of Electra are of about 2.5x income. The investment values are carried at a really low amount and if a valuation in the region of 8-10+x were to be applied, which might be realizable, the value of the trust would more than double.

Sherborne have increased their stake to 22% now, and the trust discount has subsequently dropped from over 16% to 4.6% within a month. This is similar to what happened to the share price back in March when Sherborne first announced their interest, only for their proposals to be rejected at an EGM in October.
