Thanks igoe. Definitely a growth area, costs reducing, technology advancing and UK a leader. So JLG's experience will enable it to win more contracts. (It will sell the completed farm, I imagine - maybe to JLIF which will have first refusal. If so, it will manage the operational side for a fee. Win + Win.)

John Laing has acquired a 30% stake in the under-construction 110.7MW Nordergrunde offshore wind farm in the German North Sea. The deal, first reported exclusively in subscriber-only newsletter reNEWS, is the international infrastructure company’s first in offshore wind and second in Germany. Existing shareholders include WPD (30%) and Gothaer Leben Renewables (40%). The former will deliver and operate the wind farm. Nordergrunde will feature 18 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines with installation kicking off earlier this month and the first unit now erected. Bilfinger is lead contractor with MPI jack-up Enterprise (pictured on site) tackling installation of foundations and turbines. The wind farm off Wilhelmshaven is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2017. John Laing managing director of renewable energy Ross McArthur said: “The Nordergrunde offshore wind project in Germany is an important step for John Laing into a new market where we see a significant opportunity, and in a country we want to continue to invest into.” John Laing received financial advice from Green Giraffe, technical advice from DNV GL, legal advice came from CMS and tax and accounting advice from PwC.

Yes, it's almost like a savings a/c but with a reasonable interest rate. :)

Agreed. But it equally doesn't tank when the market tanks - and it pays a decent divi in the meantime

Are Tritax Big Box REIT plc, Beowulf Mining plc and John Laing Group plc post-Brexit ‘buys’ after today’s updates? By Motley Fool | Thu, 30th June 2016 - 11:29 Share this Today's trading update from Tritax Big Box (LSE:BBOX) shows that the real estate investment trust (REIT) is making encouraging progress. Its portfolio is 100% let with contracted annual rental income of £78.5m. It benefits from upward-only rent reviews, of which 43% are open market, 32% are fixed uplift, 17% are inflation-linked and 8% are hybrid. Furthermore, Tritax Big Box has high quality institutional tenants: 84% of them are listed PLCs and of those, 71% are listed on the FTSE 350. Tritax Big Box is targeting a fully covered dividend of 6.2p per share for the full year. This puts it on a yield of 4.9% following its 4% share price fall since the EU referendum. Clearly, Tritax Big Box is highly dependent on the state of the UK economy and it therefore comes with greater risk following the decision for the UK to leave the EU. It has an enticing price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 1.5, but with the potential for high volatility in its share price, as well as downgrades to profitability, it may be prudent to await further news regarding the performance of the UK economy before buying-in. Strong pipeline Also reporting today was infrastructure specialist John Laing (LSE:JLG). It has maintained its full-year guidance for investment commitments, namely in line with the £180.5m delivered in 2015. It has also maintained its full-year guidance for investment realisations and expects to record proceeds of £100m. Encouragingly, Laing has a strong pipeline of new investment opportunities in public-private partnerships, renewable energy and other infrastructure sectors. Furthermore, the market for the disposal of secondary infrastructure investments remains buoyant. This bodes well for the company's future and its exposure to international markets such as North America and Asia Pacific should provide stability at a time when the UK outlook is rather uncertain. Laing trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 6.4 and has a yield of 3.5%. This indicates that now could be an excellent time to buy it - especially with positive growth in earnings forecast for each of the next two years. Up for discussion Meanwhile, shares in Beowulf Mining (LSE:BEM) have soared by 37% today after it announced that the Swedish government has listed the company's application for an Exploitation Concession for Kallak North on its meeting agenda for discussion today. Although this news has been welcomed by the market (as evidenced by Beowulf's rising share price), the results are due out shortly and there can be no guarantee that they'll be favourable. Clearly, Beowulf has considerable long-term potential and believes that it will be able to deliver a modern and sustainable mining operation in partnership with the local community at its Kallak asset. However, with the company's shares being highly volatile, it may be prudent to await further news flow before buying them. That's especially the case when there are a number of post-Brexit buying opportunities on offer

Pre-close update - everything in-line. Passing reference to Brexit, of no great consequence: We note the outcome of the UK's EU referendum, but we are an increasingly international business with a well-diversified portfolio and are working on attractive opportunities in each of our three geographical markets: Europe (including the UK), North America and Asia Pacific.

Thanks guys. Finally received the dividend this afternoon. Was already in the process of leaving idealing, having had more than enough of their shoddy service.

Anyone else still waiting for their dividend (due on the 20th?). I'm with idealing, who have been really poor recently for me on speed and accuracy of dividend payments.

Looks like period of weakness may be over? Been topping up sub 211 in recent days so it can go back up now :)

I bought in March following a recommendation in The Times "Tempus" column. This is what it said:- "John Laing is beginning to look like an increasingly safe haven in these unpredictable markets. The company buys into public-private partnerships and renewable energy projects, helps to build them and then flips them on once completed. I have suggested before that this is a slightly riskier approach than investing in those same infrastructure funds that Laing is selling to, but it provides a greater upside. There was not a lot to trouble investors in the figures for 2015. The group is increasing its rate of investment, £180.5 million spent last year, as opposed to an average of £135 million over each of the past four years. The rate of divestments came in a little light at £86.3 million, but this is because one sale for almost £20 million slipped into the current year. Laing says that it will distribute about 5 per cent to 10 per cent of the proceeds from these sales as special dividends. The 6.9p total for last year, since the flotation in February 2015, suggests a dividend yield of about 3.5 per cent, assuming that rate of divestment can be maintained. The only question is to what extent further investments in PPP schemes can be found. The company is casting its net further afield, looking at North America and Australasia and at more investment in renewable energy; US states are looking at the idea as a way of replacing ageing infrastructure. The shares, floated at 195p, have recovered strongly since the autumn and rose another 5p to 218½p yesterday. I like them for their clear defensive properties and that decent yield. My advice Buy Why Decent income and safe, defensive stock"

Appreciate its gone xd but we soon gave up 235p. Looks like we may retest 200p? I top sliced at 230 so will add back if this happens. Was hoping for a break out but it maybe we are stuck in a range between 200-235?

Hi carer - thanks for this. Can you elaborate? That is pretty material information which I hadn't come across. If that is indeed the case then this is positive news on the basis it was taken up and traded north of the block price.
