Heavy selling abated now at 716p on a 10% discount , I will probably trim if the discount gets down to 8% .

bench2, yes I agree re discount should be more inline with the sector. I would expect the trust to be a bit more ploddy than the other three, as is abrdn's house style, but certainly not enough to warrant the disparity currently on offer.

That said, there is one big factor to bare in mind, and that is the shareholder makeup. abrdn have to get it sorted, but it's no easy matter.

From pg42 of the prospectus: "If the number of the Company's Shares in public hands were to remain below 25 per cent. after 6 March 2022 and the FCA did not extend its modification of the relevant Listing Rule beyond this date, the FCA might cancel the listing of the Shares or the London Stock Exchange might suspend or terminate the trading of the Shares."

And see pg6 for the four (over)large shareholders.

Thanks Rambutan2 , when fully invested I see no reason for ACIC to remain on a double figure discount . The 3 other China Inv Co's ( BG , Fidelity , JPM ) are all on circa 3-5% discounts to NAV . ACIC too cheap

Update on Portfolio Allocation

This announcement follows up on the statement made by the Chairman on 9 November 2021 following the completion of the scheme of reconstruction (the " Scheme") of Aberdeen New Thai Investment Trust ("ANW" or "New Thai") that the Company would provide an update on its portfolio allocation in the next few days.

Since the Scheme completed on 9 November over GBP100m has been invested in Chinese equities, taking the exposure to the country to almost 77% of net assets. This figure is expected to exceed 90% by the end of November. Uninvested cash currently represents around 10% of net assets.

May stay unloved for a while , as large value holders trim holdings . But given Abrdn expertise in the region a 16% discount looks too wide . I am buying now just below 690p ........... NAV circa 825p

Completion of Scheme of Reconstruction and Issue of New Shares

Further to the announcement of the proposed combination with Aberdeen New Thai Investment Trust PLC on 30 July 2021, the announcement of the publication of the Prospectus and Circular on 4 October 2021 and the announcement of the results of the Tender Offer on 3 November 2021, the Company announces that the scheme of reconstruction (the "Scheme") of Aberdeen New Thai Investment Trust ("ANW" or "New Thai") has today been approved by the shareholders of New Thai. As a result, the Company will acquire approximately GBP62 million of net assets from New Thai in consideration for the issue of 7,554,440 New Ordinary Shares in the Company.

The number of New Ordinary Shares to be issued was calculated on the basis of a FAV per Ordinary Share of 821.177642p and a FAV per ANW Share of 456.537482p, resulting in a FAV:FAV ratio of 0.5559540 calculated in accordance with the Circular to Shareholders dated 4 October 2021.

FAV and Tender Price

The Company's unaudited Net Asset Value as at close of business on 4 November 2021, being the Calculation Date for the purposes of the FAV, was 818.53 pence per Ordinary Share. Accordingly, the FAV is 821.177642 pence per Ordinary Share and the Tender Price is 801.92377 pence per Ordinary Share, both as calculated in accordance with the Circular sent to Shareholders on 4 October 2021.

A total of 6,894,773 Ordinary Shares will be repurchased by the Company on 10 November 2021 under the Tender Offer and held in treasury. It is expected that payments will be made in respect of successfully tendered uncertificated Ordinary Shares on 10 November 2021 and that payments will be made in respect of successfully tendered certificated Ordinary Shares during the week commencing 15 November 2021.

The AEMC tender results are in the post above, and the ANW results were out today:

Result of Elections

In connection with the proposals for a combination of the assets of Aberdeen New Thai Investment Trust PLC (the "Company") with abrdn China Investment Company ("ACIC") (formerly Aberdeen Emerging Markets Investment Company Limited ("AEMC")) by means of a scheme of reconstruction and winding up of the Company under section 110 of the Insolvency Act 1986 (the "Scheme"), the Company is pleased to announce that the following elections (including deemed elections) have been received in connection with the Scheme:

Rollover Option: 4,369,845 Shares
Cash Option: 11,616,724 Shares

The Cash Option, which is limited to 15 per cent. of the Shares in issue, was therefore oversubscribed. Accordingly, the Basic Entitlement of all Shareholders who have validly elected or deemed to have elected for the Cash Option will be accepted in full and Excess Applications for the Cash Option will be scaled back into New AEMC Shares (now ACIC shares) on a pro rata basis. Excess Applications will be satisfied to the extent of approximately 2.9236490 per cent. of the excess Applications made

In accordance with the Scheme, eligible Shareholders that made no Election have been deemed to have elected for the Rollover Option.

Accordingly, after scaling back Excess Applications, 85.0 per cent. of the Company's Shares will rollover into ACIC (formerly AEMC), with the balance receiving the Cash Option.

Therefore, the Shares will be reclassified as follows:

13,588,584 Shares with "A" rights, being the right to receive New AEMC Shares (now ACIC shares); and

2,397,985 Shares with "B" rights, being the right to receive cash.

The amendment to the listing of the Shares into Reclassified Shares has been requested and is expected to commence at 8:00 a.m. on 8 November 2021, and the listing in the Reclassified Shares is subsequently expected to be suspended at 7:30 am on 9 November 2021.
