LamPORE™ is a rapid way of testing/screening large numbers of samples for the presence or absence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19 Https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.08.07.20161737v1.full.pdf What is exciting about this test is the ability to ID many different respiratory conditions. This gives a very broad target market post C-19. Extract... ..." LAMP is capable of amplifying several targets simultaneously. LamPORE relies on sequencing, as opposed to a colour change, which raises the possibility of using a single multiplexed LamPORE reaction to detect many different pathogens. In the case of co-infection, it should also be possible to identify which combination of pathogens is present. We are currently developing a LamPORE assay to cover several viral respiratory illnesses including influenza, in multiplex..."

Well and truly reversed trend now, but I expect it to move like an oil tanker, which won't suit everyone.

Read the results over the weekend, and as a result bought back half the holding at the price I sold it at. There is some great potential in the p/f.

Reason is action in 30yr Treasuries a few weeks back, a lag before equities take a tumble afterwards. I have been wrong in the past so dyor.

Expecting a substantial market swoon before 2nd week Oct. Poss before 2nd week Sept. Brought on by US. If so, much will be marked down.

I could end up having to buy back higher up! There was no trouble getting quotes on 60k I do, however, see the accumulation/distribution indicator falling. Combine this with the price ceiling, and an 'endless' supply of stock for sale, and price will find it hard to progress.

Oh no, Bamboo2 ! I just bought a few of these, lol. I see what you mean, chartwise . and you're most likely right very short term but mid-long term it looks to me like a major low has been made. A break above 80 should confirm that. Fundamentally, I think The Life Sciences division will close the NAV discount and/or drive it higher: "At 30 June 2020, the Life Sciences portfolio, excluding Oxford Nanopore, consisted of 52 companies, with a combined value of GBP356m. Life Sciences team considers to be a period of stabilisation after two years of poor performance following the Touchstone acquisition, to which technical and commercial setbacks in several key private companies and disappointing quoted portfolio performance were key contributors. The Life Sciences team now believes that the worst of this may be behind the portfolio, and that the Group is well-placed to benefit from positive progress amongst some key companies during the second half of 2020 and during 2021." Covid-19 has also brought pharma/biotech back into fashion, so they should benefit from improved sentiment. See how it goes. PS. Pierre, I feel your frustration. But why don't you try and contact the co or attend the agm's and make your voice heard. Maybe engage a few other shareholders ?! It won't get you far, but the management won't read these bb's.

Sold all of holding over last few days at between 74.8-76. Price seems to have hit another ceiling at 75, and chart shows potential turn.

Yes dex. The market hasn't undervalued this (as I too originally thought), the extremely large discount is warranted because management are not working primarily for shareholders. A different management operating under perfectly normal criteria would see the discount to assets reduce substantially imv. pink, yes, i know most of ipo's holdings are completely illiquid. That is the nature of the business. But the few which float and succeed produce very high returns - just one pa like cwr or nano (we were told that this is about to be floated) will produce great returns for ipo over the coming years. Liquididty also comes from companies raising cash, sometimes ipo realises cash at that stage too. Enough to fund tens/hundreds of new prospects. It is the cash holdings and discount which makes this very low risk in market terms in my view. Jeeze, if the price falls from here and the discount increases, then that really would be surprising. Basically, we are so undervalued relative to peers that the only way is up, even after allowing for non correctly focussed directors.

Pierre and dex, please don't take offence at anything I say, as I don't mean it personally, but really you're both a bit mad holding IPO. Why would you hold a company in which you have such a poor view? It simply doesn't make sense. Why would any buyer ignore the basic premise, on which the company exists? If you discovered after you bought, that the co. is not to your liking, sell and buy one that suits you better. This is a high risk situation, with holdings in some very volatile sub sectors.

I agree. I bought on the basis of there being (I thought) an overly pessimistic valuation of the assets and, as a result, an unwarranted discount. I now realise that the market was actually pricing in the anti shareholder attitude and general incompetence of the board. The latter recently confirmed by the sale of one of the holdings literally hours before the value of that holding surged. I'm not sure what the objective is here - but it certainly doesn't seem to be to return value to shareholders (otherwise, at the very least, they'd distribute the excess spare cash). Technically, if the assets are being under appreciated, the business should start to liquidate everything and return the resulting £1 a share to shareholders. It is an investment company after all. Not some lifestyle business being run for the good of mankind !

4 August 2020 Invites applications for funding from existing businesses and entrepreneurs with early-stage technology IP Group plc (LSE: IPO) ("IP Group" or "the Group" or “the Company”), the developer of intellectual property-based businesses, is delighted to launch a £12m Investment Partnership in Quantum Technologies having been exclusively selected for funding by UK Research and Innovation . The up to £6m of grant funding provided through the accelerator will de-risk and therefore enable matched equity investment into differentiated Quantum technology businesses with huge growth potential. Applications are invited via email at quantum@ipgroupplc.com from existing businesses but also from interested academics/entrepreneurs who are yet to create a company. The accelerator is funded through UKRI’s Commercialising Quantum Technologies Challenge – part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. To meet the scheme criteria, a project must exploit second generation quantum techniques or direct supporting technologies. These are defined as the generation or clear control and manipulation of quantum states, resulting in superposition and entanglement (including single photon generation or detection, quantum computing hardware and software based opportunities are all considered in scope) or those technologies which are critical to enable these techniques to become commercially viable and are on the direct critical path of second generation quantum product/service development. The accelerator will run for a period of four years during which projects can seek grant funding up of £1m from the partnership. This will be matched by equity funding at an amount at least equal to the value of the grant, and all projects must be completed within a maximum of two years from the start date of the award. Dr. Manjari Chandran-Ramesh and Dr. Lee Thornton at IP Group will oversee the management of the scheme including the sourcing and evaluation of opportunities with input from UK Research and Innovation. Dr. Manjari Chandran-Ramesh, Investment Director leading the Quantum portfolio within IP Group, said: “Quantum Technologies are theoretically the most powerful way to perform computations and this cutting-edge field has been an area of interest to IP Group for many years. In the last decade, key technical progress has meant that the field is ready for commercial ventures to bring the technologies out of the lab and towards the mainstream. Furthermore, the creation and funding of Quantum Hubs has put the UK in a unique position worldwide and the accelerator will leverage this expertise to create bleeding-edge technology businesses. We very much look forward to growing our portfolio in one of the defining high-tech sectors of the next decade.” Roger McKinlay, ISCF Challenge Director Quantum Technologies at UK Research and Innovation said: “We are seeing increased levels of market and customer interest in quantum sensing, imaging communications and computing. Even relatively mature product offerings demand levels of investment which the public sector alone cannot meet. I am delighted that IP Group have been selected as Innovate UK’s exclusive partner in the creation of this accelerator fund. It is exactly what this emerging sector requires at this critical stage of its growth.” IP Group has previously invested in hardware businesses such as Quantum Motion Technologies Ltd and Oxford Quantum Circuits where the team has been closely involved in building the businesses as evidenced by Quantum Motion’s recent £8m oversubscribed fundraising. IP Group is now looking to expand the portfolio, capturing opportunities across the board, from a full stack software solution to hardware and computing to encryption.

I would say 20% discount is par for the course on average for private equity and some smaller company investment trusts and the like. Useful to know how conservative or rich the book values tend to be here ?
