18bt: This share price has perked up with an interim dividend and share buybacks. The problem is that they are awash with cash - still c15% discount to NAV, but that is histroically low and probably reflects the amount of cash - extract that and the discount is closer to 19%.
skyship: 18BT - I see I was wrong in stating no yield here. Actually paying an unchanged 15.5p total for a 2.7% yield. However NAV performance disappointing; and to opt for buybacks is a lamentable decision. I have nothing against buybacks per se for asset-backed cos such as PE Trusts and propcos; however they should only be used when the discount has risen to levels well above peers. In the case of GPE the discount is still below that of peers! They are being done to satisfy an institutional seller, so GPE funds are being wasted to help out a single shareholder. The funds would be better distributed to ALL shareholders through an increased dividend. GPE remains a SELL in my book. Far better to buy into BPM ahead of the early June Prelims; and the rumoured sale of a large portfolio holding. An increase in the 205p NAV looks assured, so the current 28.8% discount at the 146p offer price suggests the stock is mis-priced...
18bt: Some share buy backs launched in addition to prelims - need to analyse this one.
skyship: I personally feel that money is wasted in GPE - no yield and only a 15.4% NAV discount - well below peers. You may want to wait for the Prelims next week (25th March); however in the meantime in the PE sector perhaps check out BPM for a 33% discount & JPEL for a 26% discount. A look at most of the charts on the PE thread shows that comparatively speaking GPE has been dead money!
18bt: Of all the PE houses, Graphite appear to have been very quiet - no deals since November. Nothing on GPE since IMS in October.
topvest: Yes, this is a mightily impressive disposal. This must have been sold for nearly double its year end valuation. It was 2% of the portfolio or c£8.7m and sold for £15m a few weeks later. Wow! Hope the other investments are valued that prudently. This company has taken a lot of moaning from shareholders, but it's NAV performance is extremely good. Share price performance has not always been great, but it's porfolio has always delivered. They deserve more credit where it is due, in my opinion.
jaws6: please read this from last RNS Graphite Enterprise Trust PLC ("the Company") announces that Graphite Capital Partners VI ("Graphite VI"), in which the Company is an investor, has sold Park Holidays UK, the caravan parks group, for GBP172 million. Park Holidays UK was the Company's fifth largest underlying investment at 31 July 2013. The exit price represents a multiple of 2.3 times the original cost and an uplift of 18% to the gross carrying value of the investment at 31 July. Graphite VI is expected to distribute proceeds of approximately GBP12 million to the Company in the next few weeks. This disposal, in isolation, increases the Company's net asset value per share by 0.4% compared with that at 31 July.
killing_time: Its about 20% at 688p NAV and a share price of 555p.
killing_time: Agreed, The sale adds 6.1p to the NAV which is now up to 688.4p. The deposals are starting to come through which is adding good traction to the share price. It will be interesting if they sell Park Holidays as it was about the same % size to the portfolio as Alexander Mann.
jaws6: Good RNS today with uplift in price
