northernlass, thank you for posting those additional links. Are you holding? The market now appears to be liking INPP's Placing, Open Offer and Offer for Subscription, the longer the share price remains above the offer price the better. Thanks also for the links to SCLP. They look very promising but unfortunately don't fit with my low risk capital preservation criteria.

New Contract Blows In NEW CONTRACT BLOWS IN AT INTL PUBLIC PARTNERSHIP A consortium consisting of quoted infrastructure investment company International Public Partnerships plus Amber Infrastructure and Drapers Gardens has been appointed by Ofgem as the preferred bidder for the long-term licence and operation of a further offshore transmission project. This is the fifth such project for which the consortium, known as Transmission Capital Partners (TCP), has been appointed as the preferred bidder. The scheme comprises the transmission cable connection to Lincolnshire Offshore Wind Farm, and is the first project in the second round of tenders to be awarded by Ofgem, the regular for the UK electricity and gas markets. The five projects now awarded to TCP have an aggregate total investment cost of around £525m, including about £282m for the most recent project, and comprise onshore/offshore sub-stations and under-sea cables connecting the mainland electricity grid network to the offshore wind farms. The revenue term for each project is a minimum 20 years. The consortium is short-listed for a further two offshore transmission projects, which Ofgem is expected to award later this year. "Further concessions are expected to be developed as the offshore generation industry expands with a total development value of up to £14bn expected over the next eight years," International PP said.

Continues To Perform Well INPP SAYS ASSET PORTFOLIO CONTINUES TO PERFORM WELL IN JAN 1 TO MAY 15 PERIOD International Public Partnerships Limited (INPP.L), an infrastructure investment company, on Wednesday said the company's asset portfolio continues to perform well and that revenues and cash receipts are in line with management forecasts. In an Interim Management Statement, the company, known as INPP, said its portfolio of 119 public infrastructure investments arising from 69 projects continues to perform in line with expectations. The company noted that the negative effects of forex movements on Net Asset Value would be outweighed by the positive effects of falling risk free rates. The Board confirmed that it expects to increase distributions in future years at least in line with its long term inflation assumption of 2.5 percent per annum. "Overall, we continue to remain positive about the prospects for the Company, both in terms of the performance of its existing assets and the opportunity to add high quality assets to the portfolio during the remainder of 2012," the company stated.

To Fund £170m of Investment INPP'S PLAN FOR £180M FUNDRAISING IN SECOND QUARTER International Public Partnerships expects to proceed with a placing, open offer and offer for subscription of new ordinary shares during the second quarter. The company noted in its annual results published on 19 April, that approximately £170m of investment, representing three current opportunities in respect of which it has exclusivity, have progressed to an advanced stage. In addition, the company has a strong pipeline of other longer term opportunities. The proceeds of the fundraising, which is expected to have a target size of £180m, are expected to be used to pay down the company's corporate revolving debt facility and fund the acquisition of the assets in respect of which it has exclusivity, leaving the company with the ability, through the revolving debt facility, to purchase additional accretive assets in the medium term. It is envisaged that a prospectus will be published in May. Source: http://www.stockmarketwire.com/article/4364207/INPP-plans-180m-fundraising-in-second-quarter.html

N3tleyLucas, welcome. The purpose of my commentary is to record a balance of related news on INPP and its sector. If you look at what is deemed to solid "boring yield plays" you will find that most funds and investors are invested in AV, AZN, CNA RDSA UU, VOD and the like. None of which have an extremely narrow trading range. All of which get posts each day on ADVFN and market commentary most weeks. INPP does not and infrastructure is in my opinion a theme that will provide long-term growth opportunities globally. INPP will after the placing add to its global reach. Therefore increasing its weighting in those emerging markets where growth is decoupled from European woes. I am invested in INPP because of its solid yield and its prospect of additional growth. Ultimately we all make commentary on ADVFN for different reasons but I am certain that we all make investments for the same reasons.

INPP is struggling to remain above NAV as investors wait for confirmation of the pricing of the forthcoming fundraising. Which is looking more and more ill-timed given how markets have been behaving since the beginning of April. Today's IMS is doing nothing to cheer investors. NAV stable at Intl Public Partnerships Wed 16 May 2012 - International Public Partnerships (INPP) said its portfolio of public infrastructure investments projects continues to perform in line with expectations in 2012. After weighing up a number of counter-balancing factors, such as currency fluctuations, the decline in risk free interest rates and the general state of the market, the board reckons that net asset value (NAV) per share is likely to have remained on or around the 116.9p level at which it finished 2011, after allowing for distributions declared. The company had around £38m of cash available for the payment of distributions and working capital as at May 15th, on top of which it has about £81.9m of net capacity within its corporate debt facility. The group said the market for infrastructure investment is "strong but evolving", with fewer UK private finance initiative (PFI) projects being developed in the UK, due to the government's attempts to rein back spending. On the plus side, other parts of the world are more than picking up the slack. The UK market is far from dormant, and there are also a number of opportunities in Australia and Europe, focused on education, transportation and health sectors which the company's investment advisor is actively pursuing. "Overall, we continue to remain positive about the prospects for the company, both in terms of the performance of its existing assets and the opportunity to add high quality assets to the portfolio during the remainder of 2012," the group's interim management statement concluded. The shares were down 0.3p to 117.7p in early morning trading.

Related news: Government Is On Track To Cut Cost Of Delivering Infrastructure Source: HM Treasury Published Tuesday, April 24, 2012 - 07:17 The Government has today published the first annual report of the three year Infrastructure Cost Review programme launched in March 2011 and led by Infrastructure UK. The Cost Review set out plans to reduce the cost of delivering infrastructure in the UK by £2 to £3 billion a year by 2015. Today's report confirms that the programme is on track to deliver these savings, with the first annual report having already identified projected savings of up to £1.5 billion through changed behaviours and practice, consistent with the Cost Review principles. The Commercial Secretary to the Treasury, Lord Sassoon said: "It is vitally important that utility bill payers and taxpayers get good value for every pound spent on new infrastructure. "Every pound saved through this Cost Review programme is a pound more that can be spent on new infrastructure for the UK. "This first annual report shows we are on track to deliver the savings we identified last year. "What is particularly encouraging is that these savings are being delivered through close and fruitful co-operation between the public and private sectors." Examples of savings include: a projected 20 per cent saving (over £600 million) on the 20 major projects being delivered through the Highways Agency's Managed Motorways and Trunk Road Improvement programme, through managing projects more strategically, allowing them to work better with their supply chain and deliver savings. London Underground also expect to deliver over £400 million efficiency savings through more effective project management. These examples, along with the others detailed in the report, represent evidence of good progress towards the overall objective of £2 to 3 billion savings per annum by 2015. The Government's focus for the next year of the programme will be to embed the behavioural changes and improved processes required to sustain these savings, with particular focus on the top 40 priority infrastructure projects and programmes identified in the National Infrastructure Plan 2011. Industry has already reacted positively to improvements in the visibility of the infrastructure and construction pipelines, published alongside the Autumn Statement 2011. Working with industry the Government is building on these pipelines to inform the development of "capability plans" to identify and address skills gaps and capability issues within key sectors. An example of this is the tunnelling sector where key projects like Crossrail, Thames Tideway, High Speed 2 and National Grid cable tunnels will benefit from a more coordinated approach to investment in skills and apprenticeships through the Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy.

INPP touched a new all-time high of £1.219 on Friday 20/4/12 and is making another attempt at breaking out of its range again this week. Current share price £1.216p Related news: First State Global Listed Infrastructure fund 23rd April 2012 Sheridan Admans, investment research manager at The Share Centre, highlights infrastructure as a key sector for fund investors and recommends the First State Global Listed Infrastructure fund. "Infrastructure is a significant investment theme that should not be overlooked by investors. It is the strength and integration of an economies infrastructure that in the long-term determines its competitiveness. Investment is driven by structural drivers such as urbanisation, globalisation of trade, mobility, communication and security of energy to name a few. Infrastructure investment also tends to be more defensive, has earnings transparency and inflation beating income returns. "Infrastructure could see a boost from pension fund investment as well as sovereign wealth funds in the years ahead as they seek to diversify away some risk they are exposed to in credit markets, it may also enable them to match liabilities while maintaining a hedge on inflation. The UK Government has been vocal in its wish to encourage such investors to support strategic infrastructure projects in the future. "Investment in infrastructure in regions like China is likely to mean new facilities, where as in the US and Europe it is likely to result in upgrading current facilities and the improvement of their efficiency. "A fund that offers this exposure is the First State Global Listed Infrastructure fund, managed by Peter Meany. It invests in companies involved in projects such as airports, sea ports, gas, electric and water utilities, toll roads, communication networks, oil and gas pipe-lines. "These companies tend to be defensive and mature, suggesting reasonable levels of dividends and dividend growth. This is further aided by high barriers to entry, strong pricing power, sustainable growth and predictable cash flows making the asset class a relative safe haven in an uncertain financial world. "This provides an investor with a lower risk exposure to the major themes that support economic growth and is suitable for investors wanting global equity exposure, whilst retaining a defensive and more balanced return."

A good rise in volumes yesterday, followed by some good news today: INPP net asset value UP 15.2% | 09:22 AM | Thursday 19 April, 2012 International Public Partnerships' net asset value grew 15.2% to £624.3m in the year to the end of December. NAV per share rose to 116.9p from 113.1p a year ago. Pre-tax profits were £13.2m against £16.5m in 2010 while after-tax profits rose to £16.1m from the restated £15.1m last time. Chairman Keith Dorrian said: "The company and our shareholders continue to benefit from the opportunities arising from the renewed commitment shown by governments to infrastructure investment across our geographies. "There is a heightened awareness of the pivotal role private capital plays in these long-term public sector programmes, resulting in a surge in interest from an increasingly wide investor base, attracted by the risk reward profile of the company and asset class. "Taking advantage of the positive investment environment through our healthy pipeline of attractive investment opportunities is critical to the ongoing success of the company and as such, we are actively considering our options with respect to raising more equity capital. "We look forward to 2012 with confidence." At 9:22am: (LON:INPP) share price was +0.05p at 120.05p Infrastructure: a concrete opportunity Related news: Professional Pensions | 19 Apr 2012 | 08:00 By Lynn Strongin Dodds The government National Infrastructure Plan looks like a perfect investment fit for pension funds. Lynn Strongin Dodds examines the opportunities and the risks. Investing in infrastructure is not a new theme in the UK but the government is making a big push to get institutional investors on board with its £200bn National Infrastructure Plan. In the past banks would have plugged the gaps but today the fallout from the financial crisis coupled with regulation makes them an unlikely bet. Pension funds are being targeted but many, albeit interested, are treading carefully. At first glance, the asset class' potential of inflation-linked returns, stable cash flows, modest risk adjusted returns and diversification seems like a perfect fit for pension funds. In fact, these attributes attracted them in the 1990s when the UK government rolled out its Public Private Partnership (PPP) and Private Finance Initiative (PFI) to fund the building of bridges, roads, toll roads, airports, pipelines, utility towers, educational and healthcare facilities. Investment banks though muscled their way in during the next decade, taking advantage of cheap available financing and spiralling returns. They also tended to be the buyers of bonds that had been guaranteed, or wrapped, by one of the big monoline insurers that gave their AAA credit rating approvals to a variety of risky debt which blew up after Lehman collapsed. Many institutional investors took a back seat which meant they did not develop the necessary internal skills to learn the inner workings of the asset class and analyse as well as assess the risks inherent in these transactions. As Annabel Wiscarson, executive director business development at Industry Funds Management, which manages over $10 bn in infrastructure puts it: "UK trustees understand what a toll road or airport is but pricing risk is a different equation. This involves looking at the underlying risks such as regulation or traffic if it is a toll road and the contracts involved." A shifting landscape For those institutions that stayed in the infrastructure game the private equity pricing structure of a 2% management and 20% performance fee rankled particularly when the double digit returns failed to materialise after stock markets plunged in 2008. Not surprisingly, the landscape is shifting again especially with the launch of the National Infrastructure Plan last year calling on the pension funds to step up to the plate and inject £20bn into transport, power and telecoms projects over the next five years. "Over the last 15 years there was a tremendous disintermediation of debt financing away from the pension funds and insurance companies to the banks" says Hadrian's Wall Capital chairman and founder Marc Bajer.
