Half-year Report - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/intnl--biotechnology--ibt-/rns/half-year-report/201804261515032867M/ Summary In the shorter term, over the six months to 28 February 2018, the NAV per Ordinary share of the Company fell from 672.9p to 603.2p. The decrease in NAV per share was driven by a dividend payment of 13.5p per share, that was announced in December 2017 and paid on 31 January 2018, and a currency loss of £16.9m, equivalent to 45.0 pence per share. The NAV per share returned -6.5% including the dividend. Over the same period, the Ordinary share price of the Company decreased by 4.0%. This compares to a fall in the NBI of 8.8% and a fall in the FTSE All-Share Index of 0.9%. All figures are on a total return basis and are sterling-adjusted. Performance has been held back by the impact of the GBP strengthening 6.4% vs. the USD over the period. With the prospect of increased growth and innovation, I believe the biotechnology sector remains an attractive sector for our investors, capable of delivering enhanced Shareholder returns. The outlook is more fully explained in the Investment Manager's Review... Dividends, buybacks and discount I am pleased to report a dividend payment was made to our Shareholders on 31 January 2018 at a rate of 13.5p per share, a 17.4% increase on last year's dividend. The second tranche of the dividend will be announced in July, and is expected to be 13.5p, with the two equal tranches equating to 4% of NAV as at 31 August 2017. Since the announcement of our policy changes and the introduction of the dividend in September 2016, no further buybacks have been required in line with our discount control policy. Indeed, the discount narrowed to 2.9% from 7.3% at the previous year end. Performance fee No performance fee has been generated by either the quoted portfolio or the unquoted portfolio in the period. The quoted portfolio has outperformed the NBI, but has not outperformed by more than the 0.5% hurdle required to give rise to a performance fee. The unquoted portfolio has returned 6.2% in the period, significantly outperforming the NBI, however the unquoted portfolio performance fee is based on net realised gains, taking into account any unrealised losses but not unrealised gains. As the gains in the period are unrealised, no performance fee is due on the unquoted portfolio. Prospects The Investment Manager has outperformed the market in varying conditions, in both rising and falling markets. Drug pricing and political concerns have prevented the sector from participating in the broader market rally which I believe gives investors an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to a sector with exciting growth prospects. It is clear that the larger names within the biotechnology sector are seeing their growth rates slow. The Investment Manager's strategy of tilting the Company away from these names and into the higher growth mid-sized companies continues. The Investment Manager believes that by investing in the next generation of businesses with newly launched drugs and innovative pipelines, we maximise potential for long-term growth and exposure to possible Merger & Acquisitions (M&A) candidates. I am optimistic that exposure to the sector through a fund managed by medical experts can identify such names and generate returns for our Shareholders.

Bought in here on Friday (along with BIOG) so keen on others views. Its had a good run though and little if any discount. Its part of a balanced portfolio but feel its a merited position due to this sector perhaps going through what technology has done this last 20 years. Bio science will have its iPhone / google maps moment as some point in the next 10-20 years I reckon. IMHO

The pick up in biotech shares came at a good time because of next years dividend is linked to the end august 2017 NAV I believe. Also nice to see the price increase of course.

Discount has closed slightly. Would be tempted if it widens but not sure that is the way it's going.

Happy with the update this morning and still well discounted to NAV. With a chunky dividend yield now, I think I will be adding to my position here. TT

Remains on a discount of over 10% to NAV.I thought the introduction of a dividend might narrow the discount but it's not to be.

More that double the NAV discount to BIOG. Considering that the share price of each near enough tracks the other is totally nonsensical.

I used to be in this and WWH and Biog but have switched to BB BiotechTrust. It pays a 5% dividend. NAV is about £4 billion from memory and is Swiss based. I still have a small IBT holding. I've not found any negatives on BION (epic) yet. Please post if you dig some up.
