I am considering getting into AAS.

I used to own some CULS years ago for Utilico, now UIL Ltd, (UTL) but the rules were simpler than for these with what appear to be floating conversion terms.

Any cheap advice on either buying only AAS or a mix of AAS and AASC?

Just spoke to Jonathan Crabtree at Panmures and all AASC holders not electing to swap to Ord shares have been allocated 1.27 new AASC shares per 1 old share.

Yes, I'm inclined to convert mine to ordinary shares as well. Disappointing performance of late, but their value style will no doubt come back into style soon. I'm happy to hold long term.

to Davebowler - thanks for posting that - I'd forgotten about these CULS.
Looking at the reduced interest on offer, probably easier to convert and be done with them. The ordinary shares haven't been anywhere near as good as I had hoped but you can't win them all.

Downside protection (£1 buyback in 2 yrs), some gearing, and twice the yield!

Dave
I'm having a problem following your arithmetic as to why they are a bargain at the moment.

If I buy say 1000 CULS at £1.20 (lets ignore stamp duty etc) then I can convert these to shares at 830p ie 8.3 CULS per share so 1000 CULS can convert to 120 shares (plus .48 of a share wasted).
This gives a cost per share of (1000 x 1.20 / 120) = £10 per share - the current offer price is 987p - ie approx break even on costs.

NAV seems irrelevant - so, if you want the shares, just buy them?

As the Ordinaries are at NAV of £11.29 currently it seems a good way into buying the ordinary shares in 2019 at £8.30 by buying these at £1.20 (the current purchase price) at a nice 'discount' of 16% i.e buying at £9.50 (£8.30 plus £1.20) divided by £11.29 = 84%.
