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.

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%.

Remember the tax position - CULS paid gross subject to 20%/40% tax - divs paid after 10% tax
Also, after May 2014 they can require redemption AT PAR assuming share price is above 996 subject to letting us have a final chance to convert

But I agree, better not convert now

Re the potential conversion.

830p of CULS pay 3.5% = 29p per annum.

One share of AAS paid a dividend of 12.5p.

The CULs are worth c £10.45 and a share is worth £10.30 so it is better not to convert now. Has anyone done any different analysis?

Conversion rate = 830p of CULS to 1 share.
These seem fully valued at the current price, taking into account the extra income.

Posted at 19/12/2012 11:43 by davebowler
All outstanding CULS will be repayable at par on 31 May 2019. The rate of the
conversion will be set at a premium of 15 per cent. to the unaudited NAV (including income) per Ordinary Share at the time the CULS is issued rounded down to the nearest 5 pence.
