Haha Gliston, no, Helios will have loads of money to splash , reckon the price of capacity will rise this year on the back of it - I think the annual auction are usually about £50 mill, they are looking to invest over 60.

whilst I assume they will be offering cash, I noted the comment re issuing more shares

"The Company is in addition seeking authority to issue new Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 20% of the post Admission issued share capital of the Company) as consideration for Acquisitions over the next 12 months period, at a price of no lower than a 5% discount to the then 5-day trailing share price and no lower than 95% of the then ANAV (calculated on a per Ordinary Share basis)."

which made me wonder if they thought there might be demand for this.
Ive put in for my rights , I think its positive for the company getting up to scale. Im impressed with Hanbury managing to get a pump in shares magazine just at the perfect time push the share price up 30-40p

Helios now has loads of cash available to buy Namecos [p.13 Circular / Acquisition Strategy] not just share swaps.

I.D. are you a seller? You might need to move fast!

Topvest - i recall you hitting the top on the first surge, well done. Its an interesting strategy trying to hoover up the namecos - I've been involved in lloyds since I was 30 , when I go to meetings 30 years later I'm still one of the babies, although no longer the youngest by at least 10 years as used to happen. I reckon there are a lot of namecos owned by long standing names in their late 70s, 80s, 90s? who might fancy an exit into HUW , im guessing the are going to offer a share swap . As you say the interesting test will be to see if Hanbury rolls his Namecos into HUW. I do feel for the new holders after the shares magazine pump, hope they are ready for the rights issue 3 weeks in!

must be over 50 new shareholders by now looking at those buy orders flowing though - any of you reading this? Id be interested to hear what your thinking is on this share. Ive owned this since the original float and toped up over the years , beginning to think up here that it might be time to lighten the load, trouble is I ate paying the MM 5% spread

do that many people follow HUW? interesting there were 4 buys in the opening 30 seconds. All pretty small, but then its hard to get much more than 2-3000 ever traded in this

NAV last quoted [Sept 2020] at £2.07 per share.

Earnings per share of 25.64p [diluted 24.86p] & profit after tax of £4.043m. Plus the portfolio is 70% re-insured for younger on-risk years.

Looking at the Annual Report. Steady as she goes is the phrase that springs to mind. Obviously, returns have been poor for the last 2 years, with Lloyds having two loss making years on the trot. HUW is invested in the better syndicates and continues to out-perform. More capital is needed here though to get the fund to £100m. Anyway, happy to hold on and see what the future holds. The Board are certainly not young. Nigel Hanbury is 62 and the Chairman 71. Now is the time to be getting on with it and acquiring more, if they could only issue some shares at a premium. That's the problem I guess.

Had a look through the Annual Report. Share buy backs and acquisitions planned. Seem to be doing OK, but still sub-scale. They have £3m of cash and a £1m bank loan with potentially another £1m to draw-down. Now is the time to maybe buy more capacity or do share buy-backs, but they only have limited financial firepower to do so. It's going to be a slow-burn here in my view. They need to move faster.

Yes. Bought a little ahead of current price but never took up rights thankfully.
