Hi, cynicalsteve. I hold ticker usf in my SIPP and get dividends and the capital return paid in US Dollars. 22% at Barclay seems amazing. The best thing I ever did was electronically transfer my Halifax Dealing account to interactive investor. the whole process took just under 2 weeks. The service is better and a lot cheaper. Soon afterwards I transferred my Isa.
Now pay £3.99 commission. Plus commission free regular monthly investing.

22.24% of my Barclays USFP shares have been removed from my account. A very good and very surprising outcome. Maybe the small size of the tender, slight discount to NAV and the tender price being in USD put people off. More proof that when the number of applications is low nominee account applications that are grouped together have a big advantage over individuals with certificates.
Still nothing from Halifax.

That's a very good outcome 2wild, hope mine is similar. I'm still waiting for news from Barclays and Halifax.
The sale of 24+ million USF shares is listed on the LSE website for 13th June, I hold USFP but I don't see how that would make any difference. Do you hold USF or USFP?

USF tendered 7.33% of shares in issue at US 76.4c. I Tendred 100% and have been allocated 13.45% with interactive investors. Very happy as 60% above my average price.

Getting just ober 21% of my investment back, whilst retaining 86.55% of my holding. I 've also received good dividends. Pity they have now cut dividend amount. Market not too concerned as now sustainable.

Looking at Ecofin US Renewables Infrastructure Trust [RNEP} that one is also having operational problems, and has decided to wind up and return capital to shareholders.

USF is by no means an outlier.

HP - I do concur on this one and have nibbled at 40p.

Waiting for share buy backs to start with the cash on hand

At the risk of getting completely drowned out here amidst the relentless posts I bought some of the sterling denominated a bit higher up. On the face of it yield is 9.1% and discount is 35%

However it sounds like the dividend and NAV will be cut at next results this month. Question is by how much?


On the positive side they are going to implement a share buyback.

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.

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
