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.

We have made good progress on investment commitments and disposals and are on track to achieve our full year guidance on both fronts. As regards our portfolio, the New Royal Adelaide Hospital reached a key milestone with its commercial acceptance by the Government of South Australia in June, and our team was instrumental in getting to this stage. Looking to the second half and beyond, 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. We 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." Notes: (1) Calculated as NAV at 30 June 2017 of £1,040.4 million (31 December 2016 - £1,016.8 million) divided by number of shares in issue at 30 June 2017 of 366.96 million (31 December 2016 - 366.92 million) (2) Based on new investment commitments secured in the six months ended 30 June 2017; for further details see the Primary Investment section of the Business Review (3) Basic EPS; see note 7 to the Condensed Group Financial Statements (4) Based on published portfolio values of JLIF and JLEN at 31 March 2017 A presentation for analysts and investors will be held at 9:00am (London time) today at The Lincoln Centre, 18 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3ED.

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.

Hopefully JLG, is breaking out, and will be visiting £3.50 by the year end.

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.

Yesterday afternoon's announcement about the Manchester waste project wasn't really a surprise, but the eventual effect on JLG is (to me anyway) quite unclear. However: • compensation is expected when the project is taken into public ownership, • the project's valuation has already been reduced, which should take account of any reduction in compensation, • the chief culprit is subcontractor Costain, which has already taken losses of £15m on the project and may be pursued by JLG and Viridior if the public compensation is below expectations. The market had about 20 minutes to react after the announcement and, basically, did nothing. let's hope nothing further comes out of this. We've still got the Royal Adelaide Hospital to think about.
