Discount to NAV widens at Aberforth Smaller Cos. Trust

Date: Monday 05 Oct 2009

LONDON (ShareCast) - Net asset value growth at investment trust Aberforth Smaller Companies underperformed the company’s benchmark in the third quarter, despite rising by 24.5%.

Net asset value per share rose to 631.49p at the end of September from 512.77p, a tidy enough gain but slightly less in percentage terms than the 26.0% gain made by the Hoare Govett Smaller Companies Index (excluding investment companies), the index against which the trust measures its performance.

The company’s shares continue to trade at a discount to net asset value, and this discount widened during the third quarter from 8.9% at the end of June to 11.8% at the end of September.

During the reporting period the level of gearing was reduced from 9.1% to 6%, the company said.

An interim dividend of 6p has been declared in respect of the year to 31 December 2009.
