|Catching up with things I went into this for a very modest amount for this tax year and just seen that they closed early on March 24 and used £4m of the Over allotment facility ie raised £34m so let's hope that the Investment Team keep their cool and invest this large amount wisely.
Given that total assets of PVN were £63m at 30.11.15 -per website- and in the year to Feb 2015 they invested just £18m(and this was before sales etcet of £7m), this represents quite a step change. I note that Proven Growth and Income which were slightly bigger had no share raise.
Makes me wonder if I made the right decision but as far as I could determine one had the same issues with other funds.|
|First equity issue on the fundraising:
Current number of applications is higher, according to clubfinance. I don't know whether they'll reach the £30m.|
|big wrrite-up in the times for d30 today
i too am worried by them and others trying to raise too much esp in view of the changed legislation vetoing mbo's which makes for much more competition for deals.|
|Cerrito - agreed there's lots of fundraising going on, and it's driven my demand for legitimate tax avoidance of course. I remember reading somewhere (sorry, no link) that growing companies are going to VCT/EIS rather than IPO on AIM, even though the qualifying rules have changed.
We'll have to see how funds get invested!
I use Clubfinance as discount broker. This page shows, I think, that the more established providers are raising the cash at the expense of smaller/newer ones:
(Foresight flopping? Wouldn't surprise me!)
EDIT: incidentally, share buybacks at market price, issue of new shares at or near NAV will cover part of their investment problem!|
|Yes Jonwig I agree that they are good people; my problem is that I see PVN at the last reporting date had net assets of £65m of which cash was £17.5m...and following their M Vinader sale they have £3m+ more.
I see that they are raising up to £30m- a substantial for them new amount and wonder if they/Beringea have the management depth to both make and monitor all the new investments they would be making.
I have Downing VCT's and I see that they are raising funds for their generalist fund-Downing One- where cash was £18m out of total assets of £82m so the same issue applies-I see that they are raising funds for Downing Two-the defined term VCT's who also have cash.
Albion are also raising funds and two of their VCT's where I have holdings also have plenty of cash.
