Investment summary

H117 results from JLG showed a further 2.3% increase (to 284p) in the NAV per share, despite a £25.5m (c 7p/share) reduction in the carrying value of its investment in the Manchester Waste project and the payment of last year’s final and special dividends (£23.1m, c 6p/share). The interim DPS increased by 3% (vs H116) and further increases over time should be sustained by a growing cash yield on an expanding secondary portfolio. The outlook for infrastructure investment on a global basis is encouraging and JLG’s management remains confident of the company’s prospects (pipeline of £1.9bn at 30 June 2017, with a record 11 PPP projects shortlisted). We expect that, over time (in the period 2016-21), JLG will continue to grow the NAV and DPS and simultaneously close the valuation gap with its peers.
