Didn't expect these to fall below their recently stated increased NAV of 210p, so bought a little tranche in my spreadbet a/c today @ 206p.

IC comment on H1 results: The group has a good pipeline of PPP investment opportunities and management said the group is on track towards the lower end of its target £150-£200m investment range. The shares are trading on 9 times forward earnings. With EPS growth of a third expected in 2016, we think this warrants a long-term buy recommendation. Buy. Last IC view: Buy, 206p, 25 March 2015

Yes, they already announced the essential points in the earlier IMS. I hope people don't get fixated on eps and PE ratios here: NAV is the key metric. Just for the record - it's near the bottom of the announcement: dividend 1.6p, xd 1 oct, pay 30 Oct.

John Laing Environmental Assets Group seals £20 million solar park purchase. Asset management firm John Laing Environmental Assets Group (JLEA) has continued to grow its solar portfolio by purchasing stakes in two solar farms for £20.37 million. JLEA has acquired the remaining 36% stake in the Branden Solar project in Bodmin, Cornwall, which comprises two separate solar farms with a total generation capacity of 14.7MW. The company acquired a 64% stake in the project earlier this year and has exercised its first offer agreement to own the asset outright. John Laing has also purchased the entirety of ‘B’ shares in the 10.7MW Monksham Solar farm in Frome, Somerset, as well as other interests from the park’s developer Green Nation. Holders of ‘A’ shares are to remain invested in the project, but JLEA will take over operational management of the farm and provide a loan to repay finance used in its construction. While JLEA confirmed that both assets are unaffected by recent announcements by the Department for Energy and Climate Change to Renewables Obligation support, it did note that acquisition prices had been amended to reflect the removal of the Climate Change Levy exemption for renewable energy. After the exemption was removed as part of Chancellor George Osborne’s summer budget, a host of asset management firms said it would dent revenues by around 3-4%. The acquisitions were financed using proceeds from JLEA’s recent fundraising and Richard Morse, chairman at JLEA, said it was “pleasing” to secure the deals shortly after financing. “They [the acquisitions] demonstrate the company’s ability to acquire assets from parties other than John Laing in parallel with the continuing successful operation of our first offer agreement with John Laing,” Morse added. The deals take JLEA’s renewable energy asset portfolio past the 100MW barrier, representing a “significant milestone” for the company according to Morse. Finlay Colville, head of market intelligence at Solar Intelligence, said: “John Laing’s current portfolio of UK solar farms accounts for approximately 1.5% of completed solar assets built in the UK since 2011. According to the Solar Intelligence Report 4 – Completed Assets, John Laing is ranked at position number 21 for completed MW portfolios of UK solar farm assets http://tinyurl.com/qx8ln3g

Peer John Laing Group fared a lot better, however, up 1% after it responded to the Budget change, saying the net impact on the company’s net asset value as at 31 March 2015 is estimated to be a reduction of around 0.6 pence per share with any loss of revenue from LECs being broadly offset by a reduction in the corporation tax rate. The dividend target remains unchanged at 6.054p per share for the year to 31 March 2016, and increasing with inflation thereafter, although the loss of revenues from LECs is likely to have a minor impact on dividend cover in the near term. “The limited impact on JLEN from the Budget reflects the benefits of diversification in the Company's portfolio with a number of assets being net beneficiaries of the changes announced in the Budget," the company said. http://tinyurl.com/qhlbqtv

Good summary here. John Laing John Laing (JLG), which floated in early 2015, invests in 40 projects across transport, renewable energy and social infrastructure sectors, all valued at £772 million. Barclays expects impressive net asset value (NAV) growth of 14% between 2015 and 2017, up from £650 million last December. The investment group also has an attractive £1.3 billion pipeline in public private partnership and renewable energy, for which it has been able to generate returns of 23% and 25% respectively in the past. For those income hungry investors, John Laing wants to return £20 million, with special dividends paying 5-10% of realisations, implying a 4.5% yield at a 230p share price. Management have found expansion opportunities in international public–private partnership (PPP) growth to protect itself from a slowdown in the UK. But Barclays' analysts warn that the group is highly sensitive to discount rates, so when interest rates inevitably go up, NAV will be hit. We rate John Laing Overweight due to its attractive portfolio valuation and NAV growth. This should be delivered on the back of deployment of an existing outsized PPP pipeline as well as a falling discount rate applied to assets in construction as they are de-risked. The share is currently trading at a 2016E P/BV of 0.8x and P/E of 6.3x.
