But can any of their cash flows improve if they are locked into fixed price contracts of greater than 20 years?

Sale process abandoned.

QD comment: [“It is always encouraging to see boards proactively trying to improve shareholder value; it is a key reason for why they exist in the first place.

However, while acknowledging USF has developed a persistent discount (it has been on a downward trajectory since 2022), we have struggled to understand why the board was considering throwing in the towel at this stage.

The US renewables market is well established and well understood and the US solar sector is also facing clear, near-term tailwinds thanks to a renewed focus on renewables under the current administration – President Biden’s inflation reduction act offers some US$370bn in renewable tax credits, and funds such as USF should be well positioned to benefit from this.

The board says that the discount reflects recent difficulties in the US solar sector, which is possibly why it has struggled to find private buyers willing to pay above the market price for USF’s assets currently. Given this, we are pleased to see that USF is off the market for now.

We think the board should now focus its efforts on getting the message out about the scale of the opportunity in the US and making investors aware of USF, which should hopefully help bring down its discount in time.”]

FY results look fine, though nav making no progress;

This is the bit I'm interested in:

· In October 2022, USF's Board announced that it was undertaking a strategic review of the options available to the Company to maximise value for shareholders (Strategic Review) and that it expected to conclude the Strategic Review by the end of Q1 2023. The Strategic Review is considering all options available to the Company including a sale of the entire Company, a sale of the Company's portfolio assets, or changing the Company's investment management arrangements.

· Since the Strategic Review commenced the Board and its advisors have engaged with a significant number of parties and, following receipt of indicative proposals, have shortlisted several parties who have proceeded to the next phase of the Strategic Review process. In order to provide the shortlisted parties with the requisite time to finalise their due diligence and submit binding proposals, the Board now expects to update shareholders on the Strategic Review within the next six to eight weeks.
Closing the nav gap would be enough for me.

MS2 option agreement exercised:

Although in line with current valuation, replacing an asset with $53.2m in cash ought to narrow the discount and lower the cost to a potential bidder.

NAV 30 September 96.7 US Cent.
Annual dividend 5.58c
At current 0.84 usd offer price, div yield 6.6% and 13% discount to NAV.

Strategic review and formal sale process:

NAV 97p. Hope for discount to close, but these measures seem to draw a blank more often nowadays,

Interims -

This is doing very well, and the dollar assets are a gift.
NAV $0.967 so discount 9%.
Forward dividend 5.58c so yield 6.3%, cash covered.

I had a good look at USF because of their discount to NAV but in the end couldn't quite fathom why the shares sold at that price with the share price plunging. Also the spread on the £ shares was a bit wider than I would like to pay. In the end I settled for Next Energy Solar Fund which at the time was selling at par to est NAV and are concentrated in the UK. I also feel there is a political risk in the US if Trump gets back in, or one of his cronies. They don't believe in climate change and could withdraw subsidies. I feel uneasy about this stock.

As far as USF is concerned the following might be of interest and I think this possible dilution may be a further or indeed the reason for the drop in the share price. They have ticked up a little today

The Board and Investment Manager are conscious of the need to continue to grow the Company.
