steeplejack: A takeover premium?......But the NAV is at a 22% premium to the current share price!Perhaps Woodford has jaundiced the very idea of such trusts standing at a premium to stock price but the current discount is pretty bizarre.Looking on the bright side,I suppose if the company got bored with the ineffectuality of its current listing,we'd all be paid out around NAV of 574p......

rambutan2: Also today, a further fund raise: Reasons for the Placing and Subscription and use of proceeds The Directors have identified potential investments of c.GBP70 million. The Directors believe that, given the strong pipeline of potential new deals and the desire to increase the Company's average holding in existing portfolio companies, it is the right time to raise further equity to increase the Company's available cash resources in order to capitalise on these new opportunities. The Directors believe that the net proceeds of the Placing and Subscription will enable the Company to continue its rate of investment of c.GBP60million per annum (exclusive of EIS, VCT and secondary co-investments funds) in line with its current investment strategy and: -- continue to grow its existing portfolio of investments; -- invest in further new portfolio companies; -- where appropriate and value enhancing, continue to appraise complementary acquisition opportunities; -- invest up to GBP75 million in the top seed funds across Europe over a five-year period; and -- fund the Company's working capital costs. The Directors believe that the net proceeds of the Placing and the Subscription will also enable the Company to increase the size of the equity interest that it holds in portfolio companies and also the number of companies in what it considers to be the core of its portfolio. Which was quickly taken up: Draper Esprit (AIM: GROW, ESM: GRW), a leading venture capital firm involved in the creation, funding and development of high-growth digital technology businesses across Europe, is pleased to announce that, further to the announcement made earlier today, it has secured funding commitments to raise gross proceeds of GBP115 million at an issue price of 420 pence per share (the "Issue Price") by way of the conditional placing of 20,238,095 new Ordinary Shares (the "Placing Shares") and a subscription of 7,142,857 new Ordinary Shares (the "Subscription Shares"). The Placing was oversubscribed.
rambutan2: Good progress: Draper Esprit (AIM: GROW, ESM: GRW), a leading venture capital firm investing in high growth digital technology businesses, announces an update on trading ahead of its final results for the year ended 31 March 2018. The Company has had another active year and is seeing strong growth within the portfolio, predominantly driven from revenue growth and from financing rounds and exits at higher valuations being achieved. As a consequence of this growth and further realisations in the portfolio, the Directors anticipate that the gross primary portfolio* value will have increased to approximately GBP244m, up 50% from the GBP163m at 30 September 2017 and more than double the GBP113m at 31 March 2017. The increase in the value of the gross primary portfolio reflects investments made during the year of GBP71m (GBP27m during the six months ended September 2017) and a fair value increase of GBP51m in the six months ended 31 March 2018 in addition to the GBP24m increase reported in the six months ended 30 September 2017. In total the fair value growth in the FY2018 represents a 66% increase in the gross primary portfolio. In addition, the Company continues to achieve a number of successful exits with over GBP15m in cash realisations made during the period. Notable exits include the sale of Clavis Insight, Aveillant and Moviepilot.
rambutan2: Yes, in yesterday's trades, approx 2.2m at 445p. He must be under a least a bit of redemption pressures and he's over a quid in profit. Noteworthy that share price is up since the trade and now at all time high.
