damanko: elianasgrandpa, Are you still there, and if so, still invested in Foresight VCT...? No sunny weather report, Norwich wet and getting wetter. Bit like the FTV share price... Regards, damanko 20/01/2021
seekerofvalue: damanko I made my first purchase of FTV on Wednesday, as a sleep easy investment and income play.
damanko: For the few of us still alive and kicking here: The following news is good in one respect, but in another sense implies that a quarter of FTV's assets now sit in cash - as a result of the Alaric sale. So the good news is that a special dividend seems quite in order. The other side is that 25% of FTV's NAV no longer exists, and - given the normal discount to NAV, FTV's share price may well head south........... Company Foresight VCT PLC TIDM FTV Headline Foresight VCT PLC : Portfolio update Released 14:25 03-Dec-2013 Number HUG1747424 Foresight VCT plc Portfolio Update Foresight VCT PLC ("Foresight VCT") announces the sale by its Ordinary Share Class of its investment in Alaric Systems Limited ("Alaric"), which provides payment processing and fraud prevention software, to a subsidiary of NCR Corporation. Foresight VCT Ordinary Share Class has sold its investment of ordinary shares and loan stock in Alaric for GBP7.13 million, of which GBP1.12 million is held in escrow and in the absence of any claims against Alaric should become payable in tranches over the next four years. The carrying value of the investment in Alaric in Foresight VCT's interim management statement for the period ended 30 September 2013, published on 15 November 2013, was GBP6.375 million. This represents a return of over five times original cost and 25% of the net asset value of Foresight VCT Ordinary Share Class as at 30 September 2013. In consequence, the Board will be considering a further distribution to investors and will make an announcement in due course. For further information please contact: Gary Fraser, Foresight Group: 01732 471800
damanko: Hm. Probably sums up too many brokers. I don't buy Unit Trusts for pretty much the same reasons, costs are too high compared to IT's, and in any case are commission driven, whereas IT's don't pay it to IFA's, so why would they recommend them. I do my own stuff, these days - as you know - because I can. Run a couple of SIPPs with minimal costs, buy and sell online. Same with ISAs and run of the mill direct investments. What's your email address? You can post it here, wait ten minutes and then edit your post to delete it. I'll be in touch. Regards and happy hoping with FTV etc....
ferrism: Couldn't have put it better. I don't mind being described as a mug by a fellow sufferer! The only consolation I have is that I did buy Baronsmead VCT2 at the same time which has paid me back my whole investment in dividends so it's now free income. If only I hadn't bothered with any other VCT's. It's depressing to think FTV will probably still be under water when I'm under the ground!
damanko: Quite right ferrism, and I guess between us we have 20+ years holding this. What a pair of mugs.......! Having said that, have to hope for a few more exits like the recent one. As you know the management group will purchase back shares, which may be the best route to sell. Note that almost 88,000 shares were traded today, so perhaps volume like this will also drive up the price (in the short term at least). I too haven't sold any (more fool me), but should the price continue to creep towards what we paid for FTV 'C' all those years ago........ a way to go yet though.
ferrism: Yes, damanko, we are a quiet bunch. It's probably because those of us who invested in 1999 are now just seeing a half decent dividend. Add to that the fact that we've lost half our capital in the process maybe it's not surprising we don't talk about our investing prowess! Let's hope this is the first of many good sales although I'm somewhat sceptical. Everyone is lucky once! Thanks for posting the data.
damanko: Sorry, behind the curve on this one, dividend of 7.5p being paid in March 2012. So a nailed on yield of seven and a half percent for any new investors, which is starting to show in the price. TIDMFTV Foresight VCT plc Interim Management Statement for the Quarter Ended 30 September 2011 Foresight VCT plc presents its interim management statement for the quarter ended 30 September 2011. This constitutes the company's second interim management statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2011, as required by the UK Listing Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rule 4.3. The unaudited net asset value (NAV) per Ordinary Share as at 30 September 2011 was 123.8p (30 June 2011: 108.8p). The principal reason underlying the uplift in the NAV was the sale of the investment in App-DNA Group Limited to Citrix Systems Inc on 26 October 2011. Citrix Systems Inc acquired all of the equity in App-DNA Group Ltd for a total consideration of $92m and Foresight VCT plc received initial consideration of GBP7.3m, compared to a last reported carrying value of GBP4.55m. This equates to a return of approximately 32 times the original cost of investment. In addition a further GBP0.9 million of escrow amounts, subject to various warranties, could be receivable by the ordinary shares of Foresight VCT over the next four years. The unaudited net asset value (NAV) per Planned Exit Share as at 30 September 2011 was 89.8p (30 June 2011: 93.7p). The Board is not aware of any significant events or transactions between the date of the NAV and the date of publication of this Interim Management Statement. The number of Ordinary Shares in issue at 30 September 2011 was 28,694,271. During the three months ended 30 September 2011 no shares were issued or re- purchased by the company for cancellation. The number of Planned Exit Shares in issue at 30 September 2011 was 6,179,833. During the three months ended 30 June 2011 no shares were issued or re- purchased by the company for cancellation. Net assets of the Ordinary Shares fund at 30 September 2011 comprised the following: +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ | | GBP'000 |% of Net Assets| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ |Unquoted Investments at fair value as determined by the| | | |Directors |28,622| 80.5| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ |Quoted investments at bid price | 1,061| 3.0| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ |Total venture capital investments |29,683| 83.5| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ |Net Current Assets | 5,847| 16.5| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ | | | | |Net Assets |35,530| 100.0| +-------------------------------------------------------+------+---------------+ Net assets of the Planned Exit Shares fund at 30 September 2011 comprised the following: +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ | | GBP'000|% of Net Assets| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ |Unquoted Investments at fair value as determined by the| | | |Directors |3,212| 57.9| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ |Quoted investments at bid price | 0| 0.0| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ |Total venture capital investments |3,212| 57.9| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ |Net Current Assets |2,336| 42.1| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ | | | | |Net Assets |5,548| 100.0| +--------------------------------------------------------+-----+---------------+ Quoted investments are carried at bid price as at 30 September 2011.

damanko: To any holders still left out there.... (and what a quiet bunch we are...). Note the recent hike in the share price, presumably due to the following: Foresight Group sells APP-DNA for US$92m - Generating 32x return for its its investors 26/10/2011 •UK software success, App-DNA, attracts a US$92m bid from NASDAQ-listed Citrix Systems •Leading SME investor Foresight Group's investment of £750k on behalf of Foresight VCT and Income & Growth VCT to generate up to £25m •Foresight VCT to achieve stellar returns for investors (32x, representing a 240% IRR) on sale of its portfolio company App-DNA to Citrix Systems Foresight Group has reached conditional agreement for the sale of App-DNA Group Limited (App-DNA) to Citrix Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), which is acquiring all of the equity in App-DNA for a total consideration of $92m (£57.6m), subject to completion adjustments. It is expected that completion will occur during November 2011, once certain administrative conditions have been fulfilled. Foresight invested £771k in the company, on behalf of the Foresight VCT and The Income & Growth VCT. The acquisition by Citrix will return up to £25m in aggregate to the two funds, representing a return of 32x the original investment. App-DNA, which was spun out of Foresight portfolio company Camwood in 2010, has become the leading specialist in Application Migration and Compatibility Software including App-DNA™ and AppTitude™ which it distributes to blue chip companies around the world. The company has created 80 jobs since the investment by Foresight and has offices in London, Chicago, Sydney and Paris. Russell Healey, a Partner at Foresight Group, commented: "The App-DNA team has done an incredible job in taking the company from its spin-out from Camwood and developing it into the global leader in its field. App-DNA is typical of the growth capital investments Foresight makes in UK SMEs; an exceptional management team, profitable, high growth, a large global market and a sustainable competitive advantage." "This transaction highlights the role that VCTs play in funding UK SMEs, and in particular in providing growth capital at a time when traditional bank funding is scarce. Foresight is one of the leading investors in UK SMEs, with an investment team of eight professionals and investments in over 50 companies across a wide range of sectors thoughout the UK." App-DNA was one of four companies in the Foresight portfolio that were recently profiled in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 supplement. Have contacted the group regarding the possibility of a special dividend being paid. Anyone interested still out there? Latest accounts (before the sale of APP DNA to Citrix Systems) shows APP DNA on the books at a cost of £173,212.00 and a valuation of £4,554,321.00. This was dated 30th June 2011.
damanko: Just in case there is anyone still out there....................: Today's RNS atated that the consolidation is on the ratio of one (old) FTV share x 0.554417986 = 1 new FTV share, which will (apparently) have a NAV of £1.00. So, (say) a holding 10,000 old shares will now be: 5544 shares. Any comments................?
