Upper management tend to forget who they work for and need reminding every so often with a bit of a poke. It keeps them on task & stops them daydreaming whilst staring out the window.

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c09ac9ec-6cdf-11e1-ab1a-00144feab49a.html#axzz1p2aKwyxM Break-up hopes helped 3i Group advance on Tuesday as the FTSE 100 climbed for a fifth straight day. 3i rose 6.9 per cent to 210p amid talk that it could spin its dealmaking unit out of the listed company, leaving shareholders with just the private equity portfolio. Shares in 3i have been supported this week by speculation of a management buyout. However, JPMorgan Cazenove doubted whether it was feasible to take 3i's £2.7bn in assets private. More likely, the broker said, would be that 3i sells its management company to executives for a nominal consideration. Troubled sector peer Candover Investments took the same route last year as it wound itself down, it noted. Selling 3i's buyout arm to a newly independent management team would give directors a much bigger incentive to cut head-office costs, JPMorgan said. Meanwhile, the quoted investment trust might help close the stock's 30 per cent discount to net asset value by selling a slice of its portfolio to a secondary investor, it said. "This would clearly be a radical departure from the current model, which involves using the balance sheet muscle to seed new third-party funds. But with poor NAV performance, a tough fundraising environment and a wide discount to NAV the jury is very much still out on this strategy," said JPMorgan.

Don't forget that the most recent NAV was calculated in Sept last when equities were in the doldrums. Surely what with the FTSE 10% higher since, 3i's NAV should also have risen somewhat? RNS tomorrow on bid spec perhaps?

If 3i went back to trading 10% below NAV(like it used to), that would lead to a 263 price.Definitely a cheap company,odd why it's valued so cheaply.

On Jan 5th the share price closed at 340p so as we close out the year it has dropped 50% which is quite an acheivement. Agree with Alpha...cash is going to be an issue next year and disposals by any route are going to be difficult. I was tempted when it crossed the 200p line but luckily held off. The most interesting thing now is the fact that with the new divi (if it is sustainable) they produce a reasonable yield. I guess I lack the confidence to take a stake but at the same time if it were to nudge the 150 line I would probably take some.

Interesting about FENR.... With regards to 3i, one concern I have is the impact of the forthcoming credit crunch/squeeze on the investee companies. I'm expecting a lot more of 3i's cash to be deploy as "follow-on investment".

With the share price at or close to all time lows, I have dipped my toe in the water with a small purchase having top sliced my holding in FENR.
