Join us on Wednesday 12 May 2021 for the May 2021 Hardman & Co Investor Forum, featuring four companies from a diverse range of sectors, including a mix of AIM and main market listed stocks. The event will be hosted by Keith Hiscock, Hardman & Co CEO.
We will be joined by speakers from Helios Underwriting Plc, Henry Boot Plc, Filta Group Plc and Emmerson Plc, who will provide an insight into their area of expertise, share an update on their current position and discuss growth plans and opportunities for the future.
Helios Underwriting Plc is the only listed investment company offering investors growth and returns from exposure to Lloyd’s of London. Helios is an AIM-listed investment company (market cap: £60m) which offers growth and returns by building a portfolio of underwriting capacity at Lloyd’s by acquiring high quality Limited Liability Vehicles (LLVs). These LLVs replaced the famous Lloyd’s Names at the start of this century, and are now coming up for sale as their owners age or decide to exit.
Emmerson Plc is listed on the AIM market, with a market cap of £47m. It is a potash development company focused on the development of the Khemisset Potash Project in Northern Morocco. The project has a large JORC Resource Estimate (2019) of 537Mt @ 9.24% K2O and significant exploration potential with an accelerated development pathway. The recently completed feasibility study confirmed findings from the scoping study, which showed that Khemisset has the potential to be a world class, low capital cost, high margin potash mine, a very rare asset in the industry.
Filta Group Plc is an AIM listed company (market cap: £44m) which provides cooking oil filtration, fryer and drain management services to commercial kitchens in North America, the UK and Europe. Filta combines the capital-light franchise model in North America and Europe with company owned operations in the UK. As businesses continue to reopen, the focus on cleanliness, efficiency and environmental friendliness is unlikely to be abated. This business has not sat idly by while many of its customers were shut; it has improved efficiency across the operations that will drive profitability this year and next.
Henry Boot Plc is listed on the main market with a market cap of £380m. It is a unique group of companies that create sustainable value and long-term growth from land, property & development and construction. Henry Boot operates across the whole property value chain. They acquire land without planning permission, obtain planning permission, develop sites and maintain an investment portfolio.
