Out of curiosity, what's the expected payout?
Not surprised....INFLEXION has been suspended since March. RNS relates to a different IFX.
this seams a very rum deal to me i think its being bought on the cheap lets hope neds do their job properly.

hello david, i saw you'd picked these in your column and wanted to tell you to buy the wrrs (ifxa). imho they a better play - although price gone up a little recently.
Koetser if it helps I own this as well. I've held alot of splits and other ITs like rambutan and this came on my radar as a well managed, clear strategy, undervalued asset play on smaller LBOs/MBOs/VC. In afct bought some the same time as I bought a small invetsment in London Asia which has a similar profile but has a chinese focus (and thus much riskier).
Absolutely - this is one of those hidden gems which few know or understand. I have a theory about these message boards - the fewer the messages the better the investment. You get a lot less b/s, and less ramping. So stay quiet and be patients IMHO DYOR TOC
the old codger
come on is no one else here this thing is rising to the moon.
Anyone any comment?
Bought in again today ... might as well be talking to myself lol. Anyway think that this is a fantastic company ... hopefully I will be rewarded.
So do you hold IFX shares?
am sure they will deliver over next few years. lmso link is v important as they've agreed to pump extra money into ifx over next few years. so, ifx already has funding in place for bigger things. size is everything then it comes to buyouts, at least up to a few £100k. also, at some stage this set to become an investment trust - with associated tax advantages etc.
Hi, Just bought 40,000 shares ... looks like an excellent buy IMHO
rambutan2, Thank you, will have a look at their website and decide. Are you a holder?
Nothing new there then rambutan2!! ZZZZzzzz.
ic is wrong! they also failed to mention that effectively owned by lmso etc etc!! v poor by them.
Hi, I have read the article in the Investors Chronicle and seems like a good buy to me. Does anyone know of some website addresses for information. Also from the results it says the net asset value is 21p while IC says it is 29p. Can anyone give me a clear answer. Does anyone have any info on Advanced Communications and Information systems (ACIS)? Any info on this company will be appreciated as I want to invest once my research has been done.
am interested in these through majority holder lmso. i think ifx are a a good outfit.
RNS Number:4859M Inflexion PLC 19 May 2005 19 May 2005 INFLEXION PLC PRELIMINARY RESULTS ANNOUNCEMENT for the year ended 31 March 2005 Inflexion, an AIM traded private equity investment company, today announces its preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2005. Inflexion's primary objective is to invest in unquoted companies that offer the potential for substantial capital gains. The particular emphasis of Inflexion is on buy-outs of profitable businesses in the UK mid-market. Business and financial highlights: * Investment of #9 million into three buyout transactions; Healthcare Knowledge International ("HKI"), Ilchester Cheese Company and Harrington Brooks (trading as All Clear Finance); * First realisation from Inflexion Private Equity Fund 2, with the sale of the Ster Century chain of UK multiplex cinemas realising a profit of #3.5 million, and cash of #5.1 million. This realisation was made within twelve months of the initial investment, and made a return of over three times the original investment and an IRR of 251%; * Partial realisation of investment in ANT Plc, now quoted on AIM, realising a profit of #1.5 million and cash of #4.7 million; * Profit before tax of #4.7 million in year to 31 March 2005, compared with loss of #1.0 million for the year to 31 March 2004; * Total recognised gain of #6.4 million in year to 31 March 2005, (representing profit before tax and unrealised gain on the revaluation of fixed asset investments), compared with recognised loss of #1.0 million for the year to 31 March 2004; * Net assets of #53 million, representing adjusted net assets per share of 21.27p an increase of 20% since the start of the financial year; * Enhanced role in the management of Guinness Flight VCT, a #21 million venture capital trust, which will increase management fee income; * Manchester office opened in order to deepen our reach into the dynamic private equity investment environment in the north of England; and * Appointment of Andrew Threadgold as an independent non-executive Director. Inflexion Chairman, Andrew Shaw, commented: "An increase of 20% in net assets per share is a real achievement for Inflexion and is proof of the strength of the team and our investing experience. During the year #9 million was invested in the portfolio and #14 million was realised, including #5 million of profit. A further #5 million has been invested since the year end. This rewarding activity further consolidates the position of the group within the private equity investment community". For further information, please contact: Inflexion 020 7487 9888 Simon Turner/John Hartz Citigate Dewe Rogerson 020 7638 9571 Simon Rigby Fiona Mulcahy Joint CEOs' statement Operational review Having concluded our fund raising activities in the year to 31 March 2004, our focus this financial year has been on building upon our investment capabilities, and working to further establish Inflexion as a significant force in private equity in the UK mid-market. To facilitate this we have worked to strengthen our regional reach, by deepening our relationships with the key UK mid-market intermediaries. In September 2004 we opened an office in Manchester, headed by Tim Smallbone, from which we hope to establish ourselves as a key investor in the north of England. Tim is well respected in the private equity communities in the region, having formerly been an investment director with Montagu Capital and Gresham Private Equity. The Harrington Brooks investment (detailed below) was the first investment led by our Manchester office. In September 2004 we were pleased to welcome Andrew Threadgold to the board of Inflexion, as an independent non-executive Director. Andrew brings a wealth of relevant experience to the board; he was appointed as a non-executive director on the re-constituted board of Equitable Life in 2001, having formerly been Chief Investment Officer of AMP Limited and prior to that Chief Executive and Director of Securities Investment at Postel Investment Management Limited (now Hermes). Investment review Unquoted portfolio The investment strategy of the group is to invest in and alongside private equity investment funds managed by Inflexion Managers. The fund currently being invested (Inflexion Private Equity Fund 2 ("Fund 2")) is a buy-out fund targeting the smaller end of the UK mid-market; Inflexion plc is a significant investor in this fund. Fund 2 has been very active completing four management buyouts in the year to last March and a fifth since the year end. Fund 2 also achieved its first realisation, with the sale of the multiplex cinema operation Ster Century (UK) Limited, which generated a return in excess of three times the investment at an IRR of 251%. Inflexion plc's share of the profit on sale was #3.5 million. Fund 2's current portfolio comprises the following investments: Healthcare Knowledge International Limited ("HKI") HKI was Fund 2's second investment, completing in April 2004. Inflexion backed the #13 million management buyout of HKI, the leading provider of value-added healthcare information services to hospitals in the UK and Spain. HKI provides information and decision-support services to NHS management to facilitate effective monitoring of service quality and efficiency. Established in 1989, HKI has an approximate 70% market share in the UK of total inpatient activity. Ilchester Cheese Company Limited ("Ilchester") Ilchester is the UK's largest manufacturer of blended cheeses, producing three of the top five brands: Applewood, Mexicana and Five Counties. In December 2004 Inflexion led the #14 million buyout of this business. The business has traded well since acquisition, and on 31 March 2005, Fund 2 received back approximately 60% of its initial investment. Harrington Brooks (Accountants) Limited ("Harrington Brooks") In March 2005 Inflexion led the #15 million buyout of Harrington Brooks, which (trading as All Clear Finance) is one of the UK's largest providers of debt management and consolidation services. This was the first transaction led by our Manchester office and represents the first success of our regional origination strategy. Advanced Communications and Information Systems Limited ("ACIS") Shortly after the financial year end, Inflexion led the #25 million management buyout of ACIS, the leading provider of traffic management and real time passenger information systems in the UK. Of our other unquoted investments - ANT Plc, a Cambridge-based software business, completed a #3.4 million funding round in April 2004, from which Inflexion received #2 million in consideration for the partial redemption of its loan notes and outstanding interest. Following this funding round, Inflexion retained a 25.6% interest in the ordinary shares of ANT. In March 2005, ANT was admitted to trading on AIM, at which point (as ANT's largest shareholder) Inflexion sold the majority of its stake, in order to provide liquidity for ANT post IPO. This share sale resulted in profit to Inflexion of approximately #1.5 million on its gross investment of #3.6m. Inflexion retains a stake of approximately 3% in ANT. Quoted portfolio The performance of the quoted portfolio, and in particular our holdings in Crown Sports, Bond International, Dmatek and ANT, has been strong in the past year. In line with the valuation guidelines of the British Venture Capital Association, the market value of these holdings has been discounted in our accounts, to reflect the relative illiquidity of these holdings. Despite this discounting, we have recognised a #1.7 million increase in valuation at 31 March 2005. Financial summary The operating loss for the group has reduced by 7% as a consequence of the increased investment activity with its concomitant impact of deal related income, as well as enhanced management fees from our management of Guinness Flight Venture Capital Trust. The increased fee generation of the group more than offset the increase in administrative costs, itself a factor of the increased investment activity of the group. The total expense ratio of the group, calculated as the operating loss for the group as a percentage of the group's net asset value decreased from 3.12% in the year to 31 March 2004 to 2.54% in 2005. This ratio gives a measure of the cost to shareholder for the management of the assets of Inflexion, and at 2.54% compares favourably to that of other quoted private equity vehicles. The profit on the sale of Ster Century, and the profit realised on the disposal of shares in ANT Limited has resulted in the group recording a profit before tax for the year to 31 March 2005 of #4.7 million. Inflexion's net asset value at 31 March 2005 was #53 million. Inflexion's adjusted net assets per share has increased by 20% from 17.78p at 31 March 2004 to 21.27p at 31 March 2005. Outlook The past twelve months has been a period of high activity and strong investment performance for Inflexion. Funds managed by Inflexion have led deals to a value of #67 million, and with the realisation of Ster and the partial realisation of ANT we have seen strong capital growth. With this and the group's expanding reach into the regions, we are confident of continuing to secure strong investment opportunities for our funds.
