The 1 year high share price is 137.50p while the 1 year low share price is currently 82.50p.
There are currently 33,512,176 shares in issue and the average daily traded volume is 10,291 shares. The market capitalisation of Helios Underwriting Plc is £44,403,633.20.
gilston: 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.
topvest: 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.
topvest: 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.
atholl91: Yes. Bought a little ahead of current price but never took up rights thankfully.
atholl91: Price back to where it was 3 years ago. Lloyds has produced excellent results during this period with Management buying vehicles at prices which now look inflated. Until Hanbury has gone this will never realise value for shareholders.
atholl91: Lloyds has had an excellent Underwriting results in 2014 as shown by Helios today helped by strong USD - no excuses this time for not increasing dividends to compensate for mediocre share price performance.
gilston: After the 2016 Sept. placing, Hanbury held 1.4m shares & his pal Will Roseff held 3.536m shares. Helium acquired 866,667 shares, so no lack of confidence there after raising nearly £6m. cash @ £1.50 per share.
atholl91: If HUW is undervalued why has Hanbury taken £900k in cash for selling his vehicle to HUW instead of shares. He owns under 20% of the equity so easily able to do this. Not confidence building?
atholl91: Think the NAV is overstated. It's based on the accountants who have cornered the market in Lloyds vehicle valuations. Hanbury overpays for vehicles based on these NAV valuations. 70% is re-insured so HUW doesn't collect the profits. He has picked up an excellent Underwriting portfolio but the market doesn't rate him.
topvest: Steady, if unspectacular progress. Share price continues to weaken. They need more capital really to spread the cost base over more assets. Still, an interesting company. Will look to get back in when the price is attractive.
