Portr, the company that gets your luggage to and from the airport if you are too bone idle to transport it yourself, has announced that it has secured a £2 million investment from Stobart Group as part of a larger funding round. Stobart knows air travel well and this is a pretty good endorsement.

Vela (VELA) has flagged up the fact that there has been more news from its TSX-listed investment BTL which has "launched the DX Beta version ("Beta") of its proprietary blockchain platform, Interbit." Hmmm, we could not really do 2 minutes without hesitation, deviation or repetition on that news but it has excited punters in Canada. Now here is where the maths starts. At 0.25p-0.28p at mid Vela is capitalised at £1.55 million. It has outstanding bonds of £550,000 so the EV is £2.1 million.
Vela (VELA) has announced that following cracking results from investee company TSX listed BTL it has sold 50,000 shares netting net proceeds of C$263,106.15 (equivalent to £152,530.79). That and the cash remaining from the recent bond issue will support (low) PLC cost and allow Vela to make further investments.

Tired of AIM boards who take the piss, bigging it up at the expense of shareholders? Yes we are too. So before going any further we note with some pleasure that half year admin expenses at Vela PLC (VELA) were just £62,000. That is good. Well done.
Since its loan note fundraising at 0.15p Vela (VELA) has been busy. Firstly it has invested £200,000 in THEVIBE. It trades as Vibe tickets and allows fans to buy and sell tickets for events at face value. It cuts out scalps and so is a good business and has been endorsed by Which. Whether it makes any money for investors is yet to be proved.
This is a tad frustrating. Good news on the 2nd about an investment it has made. Then on September 5 came results for the year to March 31 for Vela Technologies (VELA). half way through September the numbers were pretty meaningless.

Vela (VELA) is a stock that we have tipped on HotStockRockets and it looks an interesting play. The shares are 0.2p and I reckon that NAV could well be in excess of 0.5p. Of course most of investments are illiquid private companies so the shares will always trade at a discount to NAV but the current discount seems excessive.
At the bottom end of AIM there are a raft of investment companies most of which are absolute POS lifestyle companies. It is all too easy to write the lot off as vehicles to allow useless directors and City parasites to milk the gravy train, if that is not mixing metaphors. But there is the odd nugget of value and that brings us to this month’s share tip of the month, Vela Technologies (VELA).
