|Gresham House receive early payment of £0.94 million
Gresham House plc, the specialist asset manager, is pleased to announce the early receipt of £0.94 million of deferred proceeds from the sale of the Newton-le-Willows site announced on 23 September 2015.
The purchaser has sold properties at the Newton-le-Willows site quicker than anticipated, triggering the early payment. The first scheduled repayment of £2.08 million due to the Company on 22 March 2017, will reduce to £1.14 million.
The Kleinwort Benson Bank Limited ("Kleinwort Benson") banking facility is secured against the deferred proceeds of the sale of Newton-le-Willows and in line with this agreement, £0.94 million has been repaid to Kleinwort Benson. The Company's borrowing under the facility now stands at £6.06 million.
Anthony Dalwood, CEO of Gresham House said,
"This is good news for the Company and demonstrates that the site at Newton-le-Willows is developing ahead of expectations. These accelerated sales give us confidence as we assess how to best realise value for our remaining land at Newton-le-Willows|
|Half year results out on the 28th Sept.|
|Sounds good for both companies.
Been a fair bit of steady buying at GHE over the past few weeks.|
|A good opportunity to question the board; they expect major cost savings in LMS and believe the move to GHE will reinvigorate the LMS management. Apparently the Rayne interests were always opposed to winding up LMS. It seems a couple of LMS institutional investors objected to a more abject sell-out to GHE, and by R not participating in the tenders other investors gain. LMS will concentrate on small public equity opportunities, and GHS on private equity. The GHE board seems to have done quite a creative deal here, now all they have to do is to apply this to the funds they manage.
|kramch I would be interested to hear how you get on if you get the time thanks.|
|I'm going to the Gen Meeting tomorrow to ask what new they plan to do with LMS (apart from take fees of course).
|Happy to hold here, but this is still a fairly early stage business and it will need a few years to come good in my view.|
|"ahead of likely analyst upgrades in the coming weeks, and with LMS set to start buying shares in Gresham House to meet the requirement I outlined above.|
|This is about to get several re ratings.
The price should rise considerably.
After results are digested and new broker notes issued etc.|

"GH’s FY results confirm 2015 was a year of transition for the group. Key milestones include 1) being awarded its first investment management contract, adopting a Strategic Public Equity strategy and 2) acquiring one of the leading specialist asset managers of commercial forestry in the UK...."|
|Share price seems to have raced well ahead on Simon Thompsons tip-well above asset values-seems to be ahead of events to me-and price based on not many shares in free float until sells start on profit taking which could see it sliding back. Anyone a view on this ?|
|Interesting indeed. Very difficult from the outside to judge whether this is a good move or not for GH, it's one of those situations where you just need to trust the management to know what they're doing. So far they seem both active and imaginative so I'm happy to hold both shares and warrants, though I am considering selling my shares to buy more warrants as the gearing is attractive and they have 4 years to run.
A couple of points that caught my eye:
-- On completion of the Acquisition, Gresham House will become a trading company and consequently it will cease to be subject to those AIM Rules that relate to Investing Companies.
This will affect financial reporting, but not sure what else may be affected?
-- Gresham House also is seeking Shareholder approval to implement a long term incentive plan to align the interests of Shareholders and management in the long-term success of the Company.
Which presumably is code for giving the directors more shares in the company - fine, so long as the terms are reasonably incentivised.|
|Interesting deal today through a reverse takeover. Things seem to shaping up nicely here. Woodland is definitely not my thing, but an interesting niche asset manager role that fits the bill and could have enlargement opportunities.|
|Yes, seems to be motoring now. Interesting as SPARK has had a poor start, in share price terms. They need that to get to a premium if that is going to be their premier listed vehicle.|
|Must be just about time for the chartists to turn up here? :)|

"Frankly, if the board nails it, then a price-to-book value a little over one is going to look a bargain in 12 months time. I think this risk is worth taking on and rate the shares a buy and have a 12-month target price of 450p."|
|Yes, I saw that - very sad news.|
|It was reported in recent SAL results that A.P Stirling passed away in august, he held 5% in GHE + warrants.
I wonder whether that stake will ultimately come to market.|
|Full disposal of holding in Space and People:
|Yes, agreed - happy to hold.|
|Ah, Flyfisher, I see what you mean. Warrants issued free to "normal" shareholders (in exchange for accepting dilution in GHE) started trading in the range you mention, which is what I was referring to.
The increase in price of directors warrants of course isn't based on any increase in value of the company, just the difference between the very cheap issue price directors received compared to the price the market has since settled at (with very few transactions).
I did buy some more warrants a while ago to add to those allocated on restructure as they have well over 4 years remaining and it could be expected that the new directors should raise the NAV substantially in that time.|
|Hi redhill, Warrants were issued to directors at 7.5p, last time I looked warrants were trading at 35-40p range.|
|...............and an increase in warrant price, which are already up by several hundred percent.
Sorry, but what does that mean? Warrant price has hardly moved since issue.|
