Quick bump, because for some unfathomable reason, someone has started another thread off the back of that link above. 60p the issue for now.

Sunak is widely predicted to announce an increase in government spending on day-to-day public services and the launch of a new National Infrastructure Bank to direct billions of pounds into major capital projects as part of the government’s much vaunted ‘levelling up’ agenda. The spending review is also expected to include the long-delayed National Infrastructure Strategy and will signal a recasting of the Treasury’s ’green book’, the rules used to allocate funding to major projects, which has been widely criticised for being too weighted to London and the south east, which discriminates against the north. Hannah Vickers, chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering, commenting on expected announcements in the National Infrastructure Strategy in relation to the ‘green book’, said: “It appears that the chancellor has recognised that the rules currently favour the south east. However, levelling-up requires a cultural change to investment appraisal and we will need empowered local leaders, as well as a series of new projects and investments, if we are to see a true change in approach.” Commenting on the opportunity to ‘level up’ and the plans for Northern Powerhouse Rail, Vickers said: “If politicians are serious about levelling-up, then delivering Northern Powerhouse Rail, a truly transformative project that will link millions of people coast-to-coast to new opportunity, has to be a priority. It is not only the glue which will bind the region together into a single economic unit, but a demonstrable commitment from UK government to levelling-up.” Vickers also welcomed the establishment of a new National Infrastructure Bank. “With the UK no longer a member of the European Investment Bank, now is the perfect moment to establish an equivalent which, rather than working on a project-by-project basis, works strategically to unlock the regeneration of deprived towns and cities,” she said. “Leveraging the private sector at scale, it could, along with reform of the ‘green book’, play a key role in unlocking opportunity across the country,” said Vickers. Many in the construction sector have been asking when the government will announce more details of its ‘Project Speed’ plans and whether it will name the list of projects it intends to fast track and build at pace. As much as Sunak’s announcement this Wednesday will be keenly awaited by construction businesses, it’s unlikely that he will add further details of Project Speed just yet. Thanks to the pandemic, this spending review is only for a year and will not cover the usual three-year framework and, under increasing financial pressures, it’s likely that the government will hold off on announcing details of major projects for the time being.

Rishi Sunak's National Infrastructure Strategy for £100 billion of long-term investment will be revealed on Wednesday. This should have lots of good news for COSt

That's usually my party trick... It has followed a similar pattern for the past few days - early surge, fall back half way, mess around and close with a little dip. I think it is all just healthy churn. https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/chrt/chrt_wrap.php?epic=LSE%3ACOST&name=&type=1&sprd=0&size=2&period=d&freq=1&ind_type1=0&ind_type2=0&ind_type3=0 Big government announcement tomorrow on the Spending Review - green infrastructure, low carbon, blah, etc - right up COST's street, per the half year presentation linked in the header: hTTps://www.ifs.org.uk/publications/15177 5. Investment and infrastructure plans The government has promised big on investment and infrastructure. The Spending Review is likely to see more of this, with pre-existing investment plans tied into the economic recovery, ‘building back better’ and the ‘levelling up’ agenda. One thing to look out for is whether new funding is announced, or future funding brought forward. Detailed allocations and credible delivery timetables would make it more likely that any such funding actually gets spent and – most importantly – spent well. Additionally, alongside the Spending Review, it is possible that the government will publish several related documents, including a National Infrastructure Strategy, a review of the Treasury’s investment rules (‘Green Book’), and a Research & Development place strategy. Together, these have the potential to influence and determine not just what the government invests in, but also where and how well. This follows on from last week's announcement: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/pm-outlines-his-ten-point-plan-for-a-green-industrial-revolution-for-250000-jobs

Cheers imastu :) Although I think I now owe you an apology... Literally the second after I posted that message the price started dropping back down. It's why I normally refrain from writing things like that....it usually ends up as a curse! Let's see if it can work the other way now ;)

And you're very welcome - mine is also all in a SIPP, primarily for my benefit (hopefully for some time to come), but in due course for our cost centres... 😀 (Might take a while to get through 60p)

Well this appears to be going great guns, for now anyways. Imastu I'd just like to say 'thank you'. Your well-reasoned confidence in this share encouraged me to top up in my SIPP, as well as adding it to my ISA and the Child's ISA I have set up for my son. Happy punter here. Let's hope it keeps going!

There isn't an equivalent, because the previous 'version' had £93m less cash. But purely in terms of number of shares, the conversion factor is to multiply by (108/275). Personally I don't care what they did earlier, it's about earnings per share going forward, and comparing with enterprise value (market cap + debt - gross cash or, 'cos it's simpler, market cap + net cash). See header.

This was 200p ps before Covid hit. Following the placing, what price would this need to be to reach that 200p equivalent?

If you look at some of the more recent stuff they are plugging - carbon reduction, green agenda, digital solutions etc, it all plays to the emerging government themes - see some of the less publicised spending stuff announced last week (less publicised than the Xmas/bullying/tax rises stuff in the headlines). https://www.gov.uk/government/news/pm-outlines-his-ten-point-plan-for-a-green-industrial-revolution-for-250000-jobs Now compare that with the half year presentation, link in the header. Somebody is noticing anyway - but still below the placement price in April.
