An interesting 6m report. They seem to be doing a lot of the right things. I do however have a concern over the amount of investment they have in Europe. The slow car crash that is the Eurozone has not, in my opinion come to rest and the solution seems as far away as ever. It is this that is holding me back from investing at this price - although the price is falling, presumably some overhang to be shifted from the Bramson disposal. A bit lower might persuade me that the risk / reward is better ( I currently have a small holding acquired as an inheritance)

Thanks AO. I am not focussing on NAV as a concrete figure as that is something of a judgement by accountants. So long as the investments held by 3i are growing businesses, which they should be in a recovering economic environment, I would like to think NAV will naturally increase. I have also positioned myself to take advantage of FTSE trackers buying in to 3i on a potential entry into FTSE100. I was also impressed by the big director buy earlier in the year. Shame it only just came to my notice when I reviewed the queue outside the FTSE100!

Bones, welcome to the board, sadly minuscule support on this board as you can see from my posts since 18th March. It is currently trading at premium of 20% to last published NAV which normally one would say that is enough. However with the expectation of additional distributions, probably another 5p or more on top of base dividend in this current year, see extract below from recent quarterly statement, and considerable addition of third party funds under management and shake up by the board it could do well over the next 2-3 years as you point out. There is very little research on the company, if you find anything interesting would you please post. "Shareholder distributions The Company is holding its Annual General Meeting later today. The Board has proposed, a final dividend of 5.4 pence per share, giving rise to a cash payment of approximately GBP51 million in July 2013 and a full year dividend of 8.1 pence per share. The reduction in NAV relating to this proposed dividend is not reflected in the 30 June 2013 NAV disclosed above of 326 pence per share. In May 2012, the Board announced a strengthened distribution policy in order to give shareholders a direct share in the success of the Group's realisation activities. Under this policy, the aggregate distribution to shareholders, including the annual base dividend, will be at least 15% and up to 20% of gross cash realisations, provided that gross debt is less than GBP1 billion and gearing is less than 20%. These conditions have now been satisfied and the Group intends to initiate additional shareholder distributions above the annual base dividend in respect of the financial year ended 31 March 2014. Realisation proceeds received in the first quarter, plus proceeds from the realisations announced but not yet completed, total GBP443 million. The running total of proceeds for the distribution calculation is therefore GBP665 million, including the GBP222 million received on the exit of Mold-Masters received in FY 2013.

Bought in here today (387p) as the share is hovering just outside the FTSE100 auto promotion zone. If the price can get above 400p in the next month, the FTSE100 beckons at the next cutoff date I believe. In addition to that potential driver, I think the mid-size business environment in Europe has to be picking up and accelerating over the next 2 or 3 years and this plays into 3i's strengths.

This has been under the radar screen 60% rise since start of year, seems no interest on this BB, share price well above last published NAV but company have had a substantial review of business and at 31 March 2013 manages 9.2 billion funds from third parties as well as their own asset base. AO

Hi, Just noticed huge director buys here. Could anyone speculate as to why? Is this purely because they consider it good value or could there be any other reason and if so what? Many thanks )

Directors and others still buying in, so I'm holding for now. At some point, hopefully soon, someone will make a move.

Grrrrr.......sold too early, but have made better return from TCG. Idiotic thing is that I might have made a good decision in the short term or a terrible decision in the long term. Had I plenty of time, a little more interest, acumen and intelligence to make informed decisions from the information contained in the financial information, I would have a different career. As it is, I am keen to have an entry point (regardless of the share price) that represents a better decision from the investments I already hold. I have sold shares today in ULVR so am sitting on some cash.

Let's see if there is a pull back - nothing goes up in a straight line but this is looking pretty vertical to me

Doesn't the mention in the RNS of "Most of the GBP200m raised will be used to buy up to 30 per cent of one target" mean that they do not want to have to make a full bid for the target?
