Citywire, today: Berenberg has upped its target price on John Laing (JLG) after last week’s half-year results from the infrastructure group. Analyst Olivia Peters raised her target price to 350p from 340p and retained her ‘buy’ rating on the shares, which fell 3.3% to 294.3p yesterday. She said the results showed the group was ‘well placed’ to meet full-year targets despite the impact of writing down its Manchester waste contract, adding that the shares appeared cheaper than those of peers. ‘John Laing is trading at a 6.4% premium to NAV, while listed infrastructure peers are trading at a 1% average premium and real estate peers at a 10% average premium,’ she said. ‘We believe that the stock is trading at an unjustified discount to its peers. We see scope for a re-rating supported by low bond yields and continued delivery on targeted investments and disposals.’

A pleasantly 'sober' market reaction to today's news.Stripping out the 'funnies',FX and write downs,it all looks very sound.

So the profit reduction is partly MWPs and the rest is forex, which I missed: Britain’s long suffering taxpayers and commuters, if asked what they wanted this week, would probably have said: “Infrastructure”. And when do they want it? “Now!”. And how do they want it paid for? “Er, ideally through some form of arrangement where the private sector takes all the risk and we don’t have to pay anything.” In today’s half-year results, infrastructure group John Laing suggested that demands like these remain strong - in all parts of the world. Chief executive Olivier Brousse said the group would “continue to see strong opportunities for attractive growth in our business by scaling up our model in our three core regions: North America, Asia Pacific and Europe." He noted that, in the second half, “our teams continue to bring forward a steady stream of new investments, while the asset management teams are actively managing projects through the construction phase.” John Laing reported growth in its half year net asset value, after taking into account the reduction in value on its two Manchester waste investments. And its disposals of projects are on track to meet full-year targets. But statutory profit before tax fell sharply, from £108m to £37m, primarily because of that reduction in value on its Manchester waste investments - of £25m - and last year’s boost from foreign exchange - worth £49m - as a result of the EU referendum. Laing’s investment portfolio was valued at £1.1bn at the half-year stage. After adjusting for realisations, cash yield and new investments made in the period, that was an increase of £53m, or 5 per cent. However, in absolute terms, the portfolio reduced by £57m reflecting the realisations completed in the first half. [FT Opening Quote, by email.]

Our NAV increased from GBP1,016.8 million at 31 December 2016 to GBP1,040.4 million at 30 June 2017. This represents growth of 2.3% and is net of a GBP25.5 million reduction in the value of the Group's two Manchester Waste investments. After adding back last year's final dividend of GBP23.1 million paid in May 2017, growth in NAV was 4.6%. In line with our dividend policy, we are declaring an interim dividend for 2017 of 1.91p per share, a 3.2% increase versus 2016.Net of write down

is the write down to come from Manchester included in the NAV calc or not - I think perhaps not. Can't see any mention other than to say the effect compared to the 30 June valuation of Manchester so one assumes not? So is adjusted less your per share figure ? Either way Premium to NAV looks a little heady but who knows how Mr Market views it all

I'm pleased they've apparently sorted the MWPs, at a £25.5m hit: about 7p/sh of NAV. If they'd pursued the contract in the courts, it would have been a pyrrhic victory at best. Even that impact doesn't explain the big drop in eps. I'll find it eventually.

The NAV is a key metric, and was 277p at 31/12. A 12% premium is already up with safer infra funds. I'd find 350p hard to justify.

Thanks. Texas is pretty windy and wind energy now forms over 20% of generation, at the expense of coal. They're also looking at developing a national grid with a texas hub. (Wind 1, Trump 0.)

UK's John Laing enters Texas wind sector with 100MW Buckthorn UK-based infrastructure group John Laing will enter the Texas wind sector by acquiring a 90.5% stake in the 100MW Buckthorn wind farm. The project is John Laing’s first in the renewable energy sector in Texas, and its second US wind investment. Buckthorn will use 26 Vestas V126-3.45MW turbines with an 87-metre hub height and three V117-3.6MW turbines with a 91.5-metre hub height. The project is expected to become operational in the fourth quarter of 2017

Pre-close update: Http://www.investegate.co.uk/john-laing-group-plc--jlg-/rns/pre-close-update/201706300700076990J/ Looks generally satisfactory. The Royal Adelaide Hospital might have been a problem but has been transferred to the secondary portfolio and could well be disposed of before long. The Manchester Waste projects are still in ongoing talks, and the company remains tight-lipped. I wouldn't be surprised if it was further written-down. The pension deficit has fallen quite steeply, and could become a distant memory with rising interest rates. H1 results on 24 August.
