That's quite some holding by Invesco... http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/59761389

LEAF's share price is up modestly (low volume so far though) on this news. Might be worth a punt, on the assumption that CRS will be able to hammer it into shape and narrow the discount. I'd probably take a small position, if I had any spare cash knocking around. DYOR, obviously...!

That is absolutely the way to do it. Shares are bought into treasury on the agreement that they can only be sold at NAV or above. Setting aside whether this particular deal is any good, the principal is great as it provides a means for buying shares at say average 140 and and selling them again at 153.1. On that premise there is a 9% risk free gain. With interest rates as low as they are time does not matter.

er - selling shares out of treasury way above the current share price - can anyone clarify the rules on this??

LEAF appears to be at approx 50% discount to NAV so worthy of further investigation. Ideal activist investment I suspect to narrow discount.

Morning Dashton, Noticed that - and a company NAV update to 153.1p. Also selling treasury shares for NAV and then buying a few at 146 - nice bit of arbitrage :-)

An interesting purchase of 8% of Leaf Clean Energy (mainly operating in North America) reported today... Will need to do a bit of investigation into this company. http://www.leafcleanenergy.com/

Month end NAV of £1.481, my current estimate (this morning) is £1.467 so dropped of a little with the market. Discount opening up a little. http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/59516676 Interesting from the commentary that they are stake building in 5 new companies.

CRS has upped its stake in THT: http://uk.advfn.com/news/UKREG/2013/article/59124620 Panmure Gordon has lifted its THT price target to 116p, and Investec has increased its target to 112p.

Welcome back! Yes, in theory they'll be splashing out some of that on some larger cap companies now. Wonder who they're running the slide rule over. I like this statement from the RNS dated 26th July: "The Investment Adviser's experience is that an additional benefit of investing in larger companies is that their management may respond more constructively to investors seeking to actively engage in the development of value creation strategies." Them pesky, argumentative small caps!

Hi again Dashton, Back in blighty now, company has beaten me to the month end NAV - it has though allowed me to rebase the spreadsheet with the newly issued shares. A little selling down of TTG and some modest topping up of API and FOUR is all I could see. It'll be interesting to see what they do with the 40p per share that must be burning a hole in their pockets.

3 weeks in France - nice. Agree about CRS unearthing some interesting companies; it's a confidence booster when they invest in a co. you already hold too. It'll be interesting to see how their post-placing strategy unfolds, and I guess we should be getting an official nav release in a couple of weeks time.

Hi Dashton, Yes i'm still around - I don't currently hold as I think the discount may widen in time. For the last 3 weeks i've been holidaying in France and have lost wifi for the last week so only just starting to catch up with boards I frequent. I do still monitor CRS as they uncover some interesting company ideas and I would invest again if the discount does indeed widen. I'll post a NAV estimate when I get a chance but have limited time online until I return to UK towards the end of the month. Cheers

They are buying back 225k shares at virtually NAV when they have announced a fundraising?! Brokers will be happy!

Well, there we are - full details of the placing in a lengthy RNS, along with some tweaks to the management fee due to the size of the enlarged company once it all goes through. Placing to close today, but approval to be sought at an EGM in August. Not much reaction in the share price either way at the moment.
