Thanks Jonwig. Small beer indeed. I'll throw some small beer at them if the price dips. One to ponder - who will double first from current prices? BUR or MANO?

winsome - I guess taxation of unrealised gains is just a down payment, and in this case a year in advance. Yes, they have to declare unrealised gains (IFRS 9 or 13, one of the two). My guess (using the 70% FY uplift to op pfts) is that they'll make £53.4m PAT, or 12p/sh, giving a PER of 24x at 293p. Heady, yes, but they talk of operational gearing, and they also have the bank facility for expansion. A Brexit boost, maybe? Not much room for mistakes, I agree, but fans of PEGs should like it. We mentioned on the other thread that BUR took a stake a few years ago, then sold it. Small beer, I suppose!

I retract the 1st para of my previous comment. After reading the prospectus I see directors still have enough skin in the game and that potential growth is good long term. HY19 show unrealised gains making up 35% of revenue (it follows that operating profit will be a similar level). I don't particularly like that. However, these are spread across many cases that take avg 1 year to settle. So they'd be silly to try any shenanigans as investors will spot it before long. So PBT may come around 6.3m. That includes a big portion of unrealised gains that they will have to pay tax on - a bit silly is is not, or am I missing something? Do they really have to declare unrealised gains or is it just to look good? At 285p looks like upgraded propsective PE would be around 22x. Probably fully priced but I'll be tempted with a small investment if it pulls back a bit.

Thanks Jonwig. Didn't Manolete investors cash in a huge chunk at IPO and doesn't the company already have 50% of the market? If I remember right (with my ageing brain cells) these were the reasons I didn't bite. I thought growth was limited and that maybe the previous holders did too. My No.1 rule is to try my best to avoid losing my hard earned money. But at the right price I would play this one for the next 12 months as they are bound to be hyped to a degree by the media tipsters. As a 5 year hold I wouldn't be too confident. Anyone know what the prospective PE will be after March results?

Initially bought in at 208, but couldn't buy enough at that price, and have watched a series of limit orders fail as the price rose. An expensive mistake! Have now bitten the bullet with a further 2 purchases at 288 and 290. MANO still looks good value at those levels, based on forecasts. Lets see what happens now.

Hi, winsome ... the fair value accounting is similar to BUR's but BUR's is much lower, proportionally. That may be because BUR is more cautious, but I think the real reason is the short duration of MANO's investments. And I'd guess asset recovery in insolvency is legally much more clear-cut. Cash conversion to date has been pretty impressive, but, yes, there's scope for mis-steps.

Sorry I didn't buy into these. Been too obsessed with BUR but can hardly complain. Gilgil13 made a good point yesterday that is now completely relevant to today's update, ie, the profit growth is largely based on fair value increases. So that will make March 2019 results look impressive. You will have to put a lot of in trust in the company until those investments convert to appropriate cash levels. Only time will tell. It's a little like the the advanced revenue booking that buried Quindell and Utilitywise. Just a little. Just saying. Please don't lambast me. I'm sure Manolete won't go the same way. All I mean is it makes me a little uneasy but I'd still buy if the price restraces to 250p

Yes, very impressive. I guess this information had escaped into the public domain, given the share price moves recently. Or maybe another boost to come, we'll see at 8;00. Link to statement: https://www.investegate.co.uk/manolete-partners--mano-/rns/trading-update/201902190700114167Q/

@ gilgil - investment companies include movements in fair value of assets in the PL account. These are non-cash items, and if they are large, cash flows will be lower than profits. (Sorry if you know all that already.) Whenever a company is growing quickly, the time lag between investment and realisation will mean adjustments get progressively larger. The question is whether to trust the stated fair values. With the market leader, Burford, the evidence is that we can: it has hardly ever reduced fair values over the life of an invested case. With Manolete, we probably have to gather evidence over a few years, but my impression is that it's a similar situation. Also cases have a much shorter duration (around 1 year). How is it done? The prospectus has something to say, basically it seems to be via an imagined seconary market: Investments in cases are categorised at fair value through profit or loss. Fair values are determined on the specifics of each investment and will typically change upon an investment progressing through a key stage in the litigation or arbitration process in a manner which, in the Directors’ opinion, would result in a third party being prepared to pay an amount different to the original sum invested for the Company’s rights in connection with the investment. Positive material progression of an investment will give rise to an increase in fair value and an adverse progression a decrease. The valuation of all investments over £100,000 each is underpinned by an external legal opinion, which confirms the Directors’ valuation. [p 40.]

Hi, I've been looking at investing in MANO for a while, the one thing holding me back is the amount that 'fair value adjustments' contribute to profit (at interims it was c.£2m), which is a substantial proportion of profit and means that cash flow will be significantly below reported profit. I understand this is all part of the industry etc., but does anyone have any detailed insight into how it is calculated? Is it done as a % of expected payout based on how far they are through the case? Thanks,

Share price leaves Peel Hunt's 235p target behind. And they are the broker closest to the company. 12-month lock-in imposed, with a further 12 months requiring orderly disposal. Also AIM VCTs have been raising big funds ahead of the tax year end and some could end up here. Stock will be scarce.

The presentations ( not research note from Peel Hunt) that Manolete and others made at the Jan 29th Shares/Cenkos conference are now available on the Shares website. I don't think you need to be a subscriber to access. https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/events/event/growth-innovation-forum-2019-1/seminars
