essentialinvestor: Is this a new low for the share price in it's current ADIG incarnation?.
8w: Don't know a lot about Buford. But cursory glance seems to indicate the company is heading in the right direction. Broker buy, share price rising, positive news flow. Could be a good investment for ADIG.
speedsgh: Half-Yearly Financial Report - HTTPS:// Performance Over the six months ended 31 March 2018, the Company's net asset value ("NAV") per share, with debt at fair value, fell by 0.1% on a total return basis. The Company's share price ended the period at 119.0p, resulting in a total return to shareholders over the period of 0.9%. By way of comparison, global equities (represented by the MSCI All Country World Index in sterling terms), returned -0.2%, UK equities (FTSE All-Share Index) returned -2.3% and UK government bonds (FTA UK Conventional Gilts All Stocks Index) returned +2.3% over the same period. The main positive contribution to shareholder returns over the period came from our exposure to listed equities. As noted in the Investment Manager's Report, the low volatility fund outperformed its benchmark index. In addition, the portfolio's equity exposure was reduced at what turned out to be favourable levels. Global stock markets made a strong start to the review period with many indices hitting record highs. The generally optimistic mood was shaped by the passing of tax reform legislation in the US, progress in the Brexit negotiations between the UK and the European Union, and some positive economic data from China. However, a sharp rise in volatility in the second half of the period reversed all of the gains. Speculation that the US Federal Reserve might accelerate monetary policy tightening, coupled with fears of a trade war between the US and China, hampered sentiment. Elsewhere in the portfolio, our private equity performance benefited from profitable realisations and valuation uplifts in several investments. Similarly, investments in global loans and asset backed securities, which are mostly related to corporate borrowing, also enjoyed buoyant market conditions throughout the period. The main negative contribution was from insurance linked securities which suffered losses as a result of several, unusually severe, natural catastrophes in 2017. Infrastructure also contributed negatively; falling share prices in the social infrastructure sector reflected negative political headlines and the collapse of Carillion, a service provider to a number of UK social infrastructure projects. Emerging market local currency bonds contributed negatively following a poor final quarter of 2017, but were largely unscathed by the return of volatility in other markets in the first quarter of 2018. The end of this reporting period marks the first anniversary of the Company's move to a new investment approach. Over the year ended 31 March 2018, the Company's NAV per share, with debt at fair value, rose by 4.5% on a total return basis. Overall, when the benefit of the shares trading at a narrower discount to NAV is taken into account, the total return to shareholders was +8.0%. This compared favourably to returns of +1.8% on global equities, +1.3% on UK equities and +0.5% on UK government bonds (using the indices noted above) over the same period. It should also be compared to our overall investment objective, namely that of delivering a return of LIBOR plus 5.5%, net of fees, over a rolling 5 year period; over the last 12 months, LIBOR plus 5.5% was equivalent to a return of 6.0%. Led by equities, most asset classes contributed positively over the year, with insurance linked securities being the notable exception. As envisaged in its Investment Policy, the Company's wide and diverse range of assets, with often very different return drivers and risk characteristics, ensured that the portfolio delivered much lower volatility than a portfolio with one or very few asset classes. As a tangible example of this, the maximum fall in the Company's NAV was 2.7% during the period of equity market weakness from January to March 2018, as compared to a 9.9% decline in the MSCI All Country World Index. Earnings and Dividends The Company's revenue return for the six months ended 31 March 2018 was 2.96 pence per share, compared to 3.17 pence per share in the comparable period ended 31 March 2017. This small decline in earnings is in line with expectations following the change in Investment Policy that was approved by shareholders in March 2017. In relation to the year to 30 September 2018, a first interim dividend of 1.31 pence per share was paid to shareholders on 29 March 2018. The Board has declared a second interim dividend of 1.31 pence per share to be paid on 27 July 2018 to shareholders on the register on 29 June 2018. The ex-dividend date is 28 June 2018. These dividends, paid and declared, have been fully covered by earnings in the period, reflective of the Company's move to a more sustainable dividend policy. Revenue reserves at 31 March 2018 are equal to around two years' dividend payout at the current annual rate. Discount Management Policy The discount, calculated with debt at fair value and excluding income, narrowed from 3.1% to 2.3% over the six months ended 31 March 2018. During the period 515,000 shares were repurchased in line with the Board's discount management policy which is, subject to normal market conditions, the prevailing gearing level and the composition of the Company's portfolio, to attempt to maintain the Company's share price discount to net asset value (ex income, with debt at fair value) at no wider than 5%. The Board continues to monitor closely the Company's discount or premium and will undertake share buybacks or consider a sale of shares from treasury, respectively, if it is in shareholders' interests to do so.

A discount control policy was announced on 13 February 2017 and shareholders approved a new investment objective and policy at the General Meeting held on 30 March 2017. In early April 2017, a 20% tender offer and merger with Aberdeen UK Tracker Trust plc resulted in an enlargement of your company with a 24% net increase in shareholders' funds and changes to the Board of Directors. It is still early days and, whilst our performance should be judged over the rolling five year cycles of our new investment objective, it is nevertheless heartening to report an encouraging set of performance outcomes, further details of which are covered in the sections below: - Our net asset value ("NAV"), calculated with debt at fair value, is up by 7.6% over the year ended 30 September 2017 (the "Year") on a total return basis - Our discount, calculated using an NAV with debt at fair value and excluding income, improved from 6.9% to 3.1% over the Year, and had narrowed further to 2.3% at the time of writing - Our dividend, at an annualised rate based on the fourth interim dividend, would have equated to a dividend yield of 4.3% based on the year end share price - Our total shareholder return was 14.6% for the Year
