TrakM8 AGM REPORT 2017

It is a tad unusual for a company to hold its AGM in a public car park. But TrakM8 (TRAK), which provides telematic solutions to the transport and insurance industries, followed up its AGM in the car park of Coventry’s Ricoh Arena with a technology roadshow in a bid to convince investors and customers that it is a high-tech company with a future, and not just a chequered past.TRAK, a one-time AIM growth stock, has struggled over the last 18 months ...

EDGE Performance VCT

This VCT continues to be plagued by a number of problems from an investor’s perspective, including high costs, a disappointing NAV, and opacity, and there is unfortunately little sign of improvement.The past year saw a number of important events. The share classes C, D, E, F, and G classes, were merged together into the I class on a NAV ratio, on the grounds that this would simplify the structure of the VCT and lower costs. Each of these was a limited ...

TR Property Investment Trust (TRY) AGM 2017

Yesterday I attended the Annual General Meeting of TR Property Investment Trust (TRY). I have held shares in this company for a long time, and it’s always useful to attend their AGM as you get a useful update on trends in the property market from the fund manager (Marcus Phayre-Mudge of late). As he mentioned, the fact that they hold property directly, as well as holding shares in property companies gives them a unique insight into the state of the market.Apart ...

Halma (HLMA) AGM 2017

Yesterday (20/7/2017), I attended the Annual General Meeting of Halma Plc (Halma). Not exactly a household name so you may not know what they do. In summary, they have a “diversified portfolio of businesses” that are focussed on safety, health and environmental products. Lots of niche businesses in growth sectors and they define their segments as Medical, Infrastructure Safety, Environmental & Analysis, and Process Safety. Revenue last year was £961 million, with post tax profits of £129 million.What attracted me to ...

NewRiver REIT PLC AGM 2017

NewRiver is one of the UK’s largest REIT’s focused on the convenience-led retail and leisure sectors.There were 15 shareholders present which is far more than the three that were present last year and 15 times more than the one that showed up in 2015 (it was me!).
