The CULS pay a dividend and may be eventually converted, but they would cost £1 each and there is nothing to sell now is there?

I've not. Converted mine to Ordinary Shares. New loan stock terms don't look great. Obviously lower risk to take them though!

In the papers: http://www.heraldscotland.com/business_hq/company_news/15620548.Asian_banks_help_drive_performance_of_Aberdeen_investment_trust/ Exert: “..........City Union Bank benefited from [Indian] Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation policy that drove consumers holding cash to place them in bank deposits instead and Tisco Financial was lifted by improving asset quality that outpaced that of the larger lenders,” the report said. “Separately, Tisco bought Standard Chartered’s Thai retail operations, which will be integrated into the group. The move, which we view positively, is in line with its long-term strategy.” Trust chairman Nigel Cayzer said India generally is presenting good investment opportunities for the trust, thanks to an “acceleration in economic growth”. China, on the other hand, is less attractive “owing to concerns over corporate governance and quality of smaller companies there”. Mr Cayzer added that the trust’s board is proposing a 12p final dividend for the year, which would take the total to 16p per share. If approved by shareholders that would represent a 52 per cent increase on the 10.5p paid out in 2016. The board is also proposing to pay a special dividend of 4p per share.

I cleared out the 129p offer today, and buying them for precisely the reasons you mention DB. First started buying them at 113p.

Cheers. So assuming they don't go bust we get 3.5p dividend per annum for each one held and for two years we can exchange them at the rate of 8.3 CULS per ordinary share regardless of the underlying share price?

Price is £1.29 x 8.3 = £10.71 plus a higher div and protection down to £1 per pref share.

Edit. Just read this so is the conversion price fixed in time ?: "The Conversion Price (being the nominal amount of CULS required to convert into one Ordinary Share) will be rounded down to the nearest 5 pence, and will be set at a 15 per cent. premium to the unaudited NAV (including income) per Ordinary Share on Monday, 14 May 2012." So what was that figure? Davebowler is it £1.29 * 8.3 then?

It doesn't look like a good way to get into AAS to me. I had a look at the prospectus and I read it that they convert at nominal price into a premium on the ordinaries NAV. Am I right? Here's their text illustration: "By way of illustration, had the Conversion Price been set by reference to the unaudited NAV (including income) per Ordinary Share at 18 April 2012 of 718.56p, the Conversion Price would have been 825p and a holder of £1,000 nominal of CULS would have been entitled to 121 Ordinary Shares on conversion of their CULS"

AASC is a cheaper way into this at its current price of £1.29 as it can convert to AAS at the rate of 8.3 AASC to 1 AAS.Plus there is the higher div and protection too offered by the convertibles.

Wonder how the new merger will affect performance? I'm assuming it's part of the group announced today. 12% discount is cheap imho
