wan: Today's news regarding the Capital Markets Day should provide institutions, analysts and private investors with some interesting insights, which might create buying interest. Let's also hope we get further positive portfolio news between now and then (which would help focus the minds of those attending) and the recent low in share price proves to have been the bottom!
wan: With the shares languishing at new lows, today's news is again welcome, but does it provide a catalyst for a change in share price direction? I note Mercia expect to announce further positive news from their direct investment portfolio. I note a further recent investment by Mercia (and others). Another recent successful fund raise also highlights the level of interest in AI in healthcare - Intelligent healthcare company Rinicare announces completion of financing Rinicare raises money to support the commercialisation of its digital healthcare portfolio Manchester, UK, 15th August 2018 - Rinicare Limited, a leading intelligent healthcare company has announced the completion of its financing round by welcoming new investors Catapult Ventures and NPIF - Mercia Equity Finance, which is managed by Mercia Fund Managers and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund. The funding will be used to support the commercialisation of Rinicare’s digital healthcare portfolio, which is designed to provide solutions that improve outcomes and reduce costs in a number of settings such as emergency, primary and community care as well as progress its AI-powered predictive algorithm for intensive care.

redartbmud: Yes, you can only get a return by selling shares - if they rise above the purchase price. Share placing Jan 2017 £40m gross at 46p/share, which was then a discount to the prevailing mid-market share price of 50.5p It has gone down steadily ever since.
nocton: I have just read the Annual Report. It all looks encouraging to me. I also saw their presentation at Mello in Derby in May, when I was impressed with their methods and results. The problem I see is that they are both a fund manager and an investment company. So the NAV is given as 40.7p. meaning a 25% discount - very large for an investment company/trust. However we have to add on some value for their fund management operation - currently £400m funds managed and a revenue of £10.2m. They've also got cash of £49m. Putting it all together, the business is worth much more than the current share price suggests. Clearly (hopefully?) the NAV will rise as the businesses they invest in develop and are eventually sold or floated on AIM. But also the revenue from funds management should generate for re-investment or a dividend. I have added more a the current price.
nocton: Surely its like any investment trust, the value is returned to shareholders with rising NAV and rising share price.
turbocharge: Quite a lot of selling in recent days, but share price seems to be holding up well. Maybe a buyer is building a stake in MERC at the moment...?
redartbmud: Keep ramping mate, I need a big rise in the share price, so that I can get out at break even.
bigboots: Is anything ever going to move this share price ?
twaintwix: One of the safest bets on AIM to double the share price in a short space of time. It has no debt, £20m in the bank, and todays contracts on top of all that, yet it is ignored by the PIs who prefer to punt and lose on mickey mouse companies with only hot air to keep them afloat! No wonder most of you go skint backing losers that promise millions but deliver hot air instead. RNS Number : 4808X Mercia Technologies PLC 22 February 2017 For immediate release 22 February 2017 Mercia Technologies PLC ("Mercia", "the Company" or the "Group") Two major contracts secured for Northern Powerhouse Funds Mercia (AIM: MERC), the national investment group focused on the creation, funding and scaling of innovative technology businesses with high growth potential from the UK regions, is pleased to announce that it has been successful in its bids, via its wholly-owned subsidiary Enterprise Ventures Limited, to manage two of the British Business Bank's ("BBB") new Northern Powerhouse Investment Funds ("NPIF"). Following a highly competitive procurement process managed by the BBB, the Group has secured GBP108.5million across two mandates; a GBP57.5million equity fund and a GBP51.0million debt fund. The funds will be deployed via Mercia's North of England offices, which will be focused primarily on investing in SMEs in Yorkshire, the Humber and Tees Valley regions, where the Group already has a successful track record of supporting start-up and later stage companies that have high growth potential. These new fund mandate wins represent further strategic progress for Mercia. As a result of the two awards, Mercia has increased its third party funds under management by nearly 50% to over GBP336.5million, which over time will further increase the pipeline of potential direct investment opportunities for the Group. Dr Mark Payton, CEO of Mercia Technologies PLC, said: "We are delighted that, in a highly competitive field, the Group has been selected to manage two Northern Powerhouse Investment Funds. The new funds are strongly aligned with Mercia's 'Complete Capital Solution' and our strategic aim to invest in the UK's underserved regions, supporting the next generation of businesses with high growth potential, where we are already very active. These two new funds will play a leading role in the development of innovative small businesses located in the North of England. The Group is well placed to manage these new mandates having already delivered several notable successes for similar public and private funds, including Blue Prism Group PLC, Optibiotix Health PLC, Xeros Technology Group plc and Concepta PLC. We are looking forward to working with the BBB on the successful delivery of these new mandates over the coming years. Mercia's strategy is to create value for its shareholders and investment clients by finding and funding innovative businesses in the UK regions, initially by investing the third party funds and subsequently by taking direct stakes in 'Emerging Stars' as they successfully scale up. These two new funds will further strengthen Mercia's ability to generate attractive returns for both managed fund investors and shareholders." The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund project is supported financially by the European Union, attracting investment from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020, and the European Investment Bank.

127tolmers: A big drop in share price today on no new news. The shares are still trading above NAV which contains a lot of uninvested cash as per their recent half yearlys. Imperial Innovations trades around 150% of NAV. I wonder if there was an IPO lock in that has just come to an end? Perhaps someone knows the answer. I got ADVFN to amend some of the descriptions that still had with it described as the former unrelated Merchant Securities.
