Topping up time then following the share price fall to 325p. Guess they have just found base camp around placing level and nothing more untoward than that. Just a few, won't go mad, into the patient drawer.

Very disappointed that there are was no Private Sharehoder subscription on offer here. I would have liked to top up at 324p like the newbies. I wonder if Institutions have possibly been selling down from 350p whilst able to buy back at 324p. Disapplication of pre emotion rights always seems to end this way...for PIs ...dilution of my assets. I intend to get even...I will vote against and top up below 324p ....hopefully.

As it happens, James Walker, boss of Resolver, was on Radio 4's Money Box yesterday talking about dispute resolution. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qjnv/episodes/player 31/10/16: Resolver.co.uk – the free and independent website dedicated to making it easier for consumers to make complaints or raise issues with brands, companies and organisations to get redress or money back – has secured a funding round of £2.8 million. By the end of 2016, the UK’s key resolution website for complaints expects to have helped resolve issues worth £100m+ for consumers and businesses. The site is projected to reach one million visitors a month by March 2017. Consistently rated 5* by users, many contact the site with their success stories showing how they’ve got back hundreds of pounds using a process that takes just a few minutes. Some have reported receiving thousands of pounds owed to them. And in its first institutional investment round, parent company Resolving Limited has now secured funding from Draper Esprit and Imperial Innovations to allow it to double its team and invest in new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. hTTp://draperesprit.com/uncategorized/resolver-co-uk-secures-2-8m-of-investment-to-transform-consumer-rights-complaint-resolution/ hTTp://www.resolver.co.uk/

Below are a few useful pointers from the admission doc: Following Admission, the Group’s cost base is expected to increase to approximately £4 million per annum, these operating costs will be partially offset by the income which the Company expects to receive from the Encore Funds and also through carried interest generated upon the realisation of certain investments held within Esprit Fund 2 and Esprit Fund 3(i) and also the realisation of certain co-investments. The Company raised net proceeds of £69.4 million pursuant to the Placing and the Subscription, which funds are intended to be used as follows: £40.1 million to pay the cash element of the consideration for the acquisition of, subject to certain existing carried interest arrangements, the Initial Portfolio; and £29.3 million to make further primary investments and secondary investments (including companies in the Initial Portfolio) and to provide working capital for the Group to support its growth plans. On Admission, the Group will own, subject to certain existing carried interest arrangements, minority interests in 24 portfolio companies* which, as at 31 December 2015, had an Aggregate Valuation of £74.8 million (including residual value relating to prior exits) (the ‘‘Initial Portfolio’R17;). The Initial Portfolio, adjusted solely for currency movements since 31 December 2015, had an unaudited aggregate valuation of £76.4 million as at 30 April 2016. *see pg 23-25 and pg 94-95 of admission doc for details Through its ownership of Encore Ventures (an FCA authorised and regulated management vehicle), the Group manages four EIS funds, currently with a total of £19.5 million under management (approximately three quarters of which is invested). The Group receives income via management fees and performance fees from the Encore Funds and the Directors intend to continue to grow this area of the business. The Group will also continue to manage three legacy funds, Esprit Fund 1, Esprit Fund 2 and Esprit Fund 3(i) (the ‘‘Historic Esprit Funds’’*). These funds are now in run-off, and while the Group will no longer receive management fees in respect of these funds, the Company expects them to generate carried interest for the Group depending upon the realisation of certain investments held within certain of these funds. *See pg95 The Group has a joint venture with Draper Esprit Secondaries, a separately owned and managed partnership, pursuant to which they work exclusively together on new opportunities to manage secondary investments in Europe. Further information about the team behind Draper Esprit Secondaries is set out in paragraph 2 of Part 3 of this document. The Group expects to receive a proportion of management fees and carried interest in respect of future transactions carried out by Draper Esprit Secondaries. See pg 92-93 of ad doc for the illustrative pro forma statement of net assets ie £80.5m investments, £30.5m cash and £21m of goodwill, and £4m of liabilities.
