|scburbs: Good to see NAV stabilised, dividends continuing and a few more disposals in the pipeline to ease refinancing. Key next news to move the share price upwards is the refinancing. I suspect they may want to refinance it all in one go.
Has anyone seen a release with the full notes (this link stops at note 1)?
"Following on from these disposals, a key focus of the Fund is the Company's capital structure including the debt financing in place. The Fund's loan facilities, currently amounting to £198.6m, expire in three tranches in October 2010, April 2011 and November 2011. The Fund is currently in discussions with a number of lenders and is hopeful that a refinancing deal can be achieved at a gearing level that is both attractive to the Fund and in line with current market trends. Further disposals may be required to achieve appropriate gearing levels under any revised facilities."
|typo56: LONDON (Dow Jones)--U.K. property investor Hansteen Holdings PLC (HSTN.LN) doesn't plan to make an offer for Kenmore European Industrial Fund Ltd. (KEIF.LN) but is open minded about the 12% stake it bought in the property firm last November.
Speaking to Dow Jones Newswires Joint Chief Executive Ian Watson said Friday it wasn't allowed to carry out due diligence on Kenmore and informed the market that it had ended offer talks late Thursday.
"This represents us putting this deal onto the back burner," he said. He added that Hansteen was "open minded" as to future plans for the 12% stake in Kenmore, and was looking at "significant" property deals in Europe and the U.K..
Kenmore declined to comment on the ending of the talks.
At the time of the stake purchase Hansteen, which focuses on industrial property, said it had approached the board of KEIF with a potential offer valuing the company at around GBP56.8 million.
The potential offer was made up of 20 pence in cash and 0.2469 new Hansteen shares for each KEIF share, which equated to around 40.6 pence a KEIF share.|
we have a say by not voting for it, management should not be even accomodating this approach. If that happens, then we will do a RUGB - they are in similar circumstances and the bid has been dropped.
I'm hoping for similar here. It's good to have the spotlight on the company - this approach shows how uncorrelated the share price is to assets.|
|crawford: Hansteen confirms that an approach has been made to the Board of KEIF in
relation to a potential offer by Hansteen for the remaining issued and to be
issued ordinary share capital of KEIF. The potential offer comprises 20p in cash
and 0.2469 new Hansteen shares for each KEIF share, which equates to a value of
approximately 40.6p per KEIF share and values the issued share capital of KEIF
at approximately GBP56.8 million, based on the Hansteen share price of 83.25p as
at the close of business on 24 November.
Hansteen believes that this potential acquisition is an excellent opportunity to
buy high yielding assets which would complement and extend its existing European
portfolio. It would also further capitalise on the asset management expertise
already developed by Hansteen in Europe. Furthermore, Hansteen believes that an
offer at the level indicated would be in the interests of KEIF shareholders.|
|cfro: Looks like we are finally awakening here.
Those disposals are being made above valuations....gotta be good for the share price.|
|thepsychic: Excuse me I meant retracement. I will look into buying in at 30p initially (if it get's there) but I would not pounce in at 30p as this may drift to the support line below as the share price has gone up 200% in a very short space of time it may be due a breather. I agree that 70p is acheivable some time soon but in this market i can see traders cashing in on the rise as opposed to allowing for a 700% increase so quickly.|
|nickcduk: crawford - I posted a reply to your question on the wrong board. Its over on IERE. I guess you have probably seen it though.
Disparity between ALPH and KEIF is pretty stark. KEIF has lower gearing, generates higher underlying earnings and trades on a much larger discount. Yet ALPH trades at 20% higher. KEIF management should take note what a higher dividend can do for your share price.|
