Shares issued at a premium. Simple example: 1 share exists, assets 100, so nav 100. Add 1 new share at price of 105. So now 2 shares with assets 205, nav 102.5. Underlying investments haven't moved. That shows the arithmetic. Effect is smaller in real situations.

Don't see how that follows - the nav depends on the performance of the investments - we should be indifferent to the number of shares in issue?

Toffee - we shareholders are getting a slice of that through nav increase.... I hope!

So the company has raised a further 15% equity since the launch - all at a premium. Who takes the commission :)?

melody - thanks, I didn't know it had entered the SC index. It's been pretty consistently at a premium, sometimes a much bigger one than now. The managers have a strong track record.

this was drawn to my attention as I see it ie entering the ftse small cap. so some funds/trackers buying in? premium to NAV so probably the wrong time for an entry.

It's a bit like the old privatisations without stagging! 12% return in just over 2 months is fine by me. I took 12% out of WPCT when it launched - just wondering whether to do the same here....

Toffee - can't be anything else, really. And this was under-subscribed at launch - - amazing.

More stock issued at a premium - presumably in response to institutional demand?

They are taking advantage: BB Healthcare Trust plc (the "Company") announces that it has today issued 1,200,000 of its ordinary shares of one penny each ("Ordinary Shares") pursuant to its block listing facility. The Ordinary Shares will be issued at a price of 111.72 pence per Ordinary Share, a premium to the prevailing net asset value (cum income) per Ordinary Share. This, of course, helps existing holders.

Nope apart from the assumption that one or more of the big holdings is up. Toffeeman in Devon

Any ideas why these have gone ballistic in the last few days other than the above news?

Someone is keen to have these: BB Healthcare Trust plc (the "Company") announces that it has today allotted, subject to listing, 9,131,100 of its ordinary shares of one penny each ("Ordinary Shares") in the Company. The Ordinary Shares will be issued at a price of 108.5 pence per Ordinary Share, a premium to the prevailing net asset value (cum income) per Ordinary Share. The Ordinary Shares will be issued under the Company's share issuance programme as described in the prospectus published by the Company on 10 November 2016 (the "Prospectus"). Yesterday's NAV was 106.97p. (!)

The IPO raised £150m against target £200m, but now buyers are willing to pay 103p. Italian referendum made some cautious? EDIT, 16:40 - 103.5p.

Dave - thanks for the information on that. I did see the IPO announced, but neither of my two brokers was participating. If you're old enough, you might remember the two Slater-Walker Dual Investment Trusts from the 1970s which were nicknamed "The Dustbins". I won't be investing either.

Last week I did invest in this IPO but (at risk of going off topic)let me warn any like minded IPO investors that I will not be investing in this weeks IPO which is another investment trust called RM Direct lending. Thirty years ago I joined a private company which operated a bit like Dragons Den. Well connected city grandees had started investing their own family fortunes and friends money in loans to smaller companies and created a ragbag portfolio. This weeks float is very similar, an investment manager has a seed portfolio ready to be injected into the new float money. My employers were in trouble, there were dud loans all over the place and no way of unloading them so they floated an investment trust and dumped all their rubbish in it. Within a year the trust was in trouble and a lot of private investors lost their money. I do not for one moment suggest that this weeks float has any connection whatsoever with my story, but the sense of deja vu was enough to scare me off.

essential - I think also the idea is to be able to offer new 'C' shares which will eventually merge with the ords. That would most likely happen if the shares went to a premium ... which appears to be happening now!

Made my first purchase this morning. I like the mechanism to ensure the price does not drop to a discount. Every portfolio needs exposure to this sector IMHO

Thanks for setting up this thread jonwig. I'm now looking to hold long term, the 3.5% div helps me to just leave it alone in my sipp and give it 3 or 4 years to see what happens. KT.

Friday 2nd isn't it, Molby? £150m vs target £200m - seems private investors weren't over keen here.

Thanks Jonwig, you give me a degree of comfort but also a new worry, the Trump effect. Recently one of the doomsters said that the Trump effect might well emulate the Ronald Regan era in which the market rose as he took office, peaked in April and then fell by 20% by September. I think I will buy, expect to top up in late 2017 and then wait 5 years for the reward.
