Redcentric plc AGM 2017

I attended the AGM on 4th September, held at the offices of Redcentric’s legal counsel, CMS. Approximately 5 individual shareholders were present, including campaign group members Bruce Noble and Arman Khan, as well as myself. All board members were in attendance. There was no presentation from the chair or CEO, but there was an extensive Q&A session before formal voting on the resolutions. I raised some questions concerning the disposal of fibre networks announced in September 2016, as part of Redcentric’s key USP was.... Click ...

Henderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust Plc AGM 2017

Today I attended the 129th Annual General Meeting of this company in their city of London offices with 30 or so mostly retired gentleman shareholders in attendance. The Chairman, Jamie Cayzer-Colvin was unfortunately unable to attend due to illness, and so the Senior Independent Director Mary Ann Sieghart took over Chair duties for the meeting. Some financial highlights from the results are as follows: NAV and share price up 20%, dividend up 3p to 18p giving a yield of 2.3% and the ...

Byotrol AGM REPORT 2017

On Thursday 28th September 2017 I attended the AGM of Byotrol plc at the London offices of finnCap, a venue that will be familiar to some ShareSoc members as it previously hosted many of its London Company Seminars. The company describes itself as ‘an expert developer of consumer and professional antimicrobial technologies and products’ and more details can be found on its website www.byotrol.co.uk . All four Directors were present, as was Company Secretary Denise Keenan, who welcomed us into to the... Click here ...

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 ...

Albion Venture VCT (AAVC) AGM 2017

This year’s Albion Venture VCT AGM was held on Monday (August 14th 2017) starting at 11.00. The venue was the same as the previous seven AGMs: The City of London Club, 19 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1DS. For this year’s AGM there were around 30 ordinary shareholders in attendance. The meeting began with a portfolio review followed by Q&As with the Manager; we then had the formal AGM followed by a presentation by one of the investee companies (G Network) before ...

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 ...
