the grumpy old men: This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of articles that also appeared in the U.S. print edition of The Wall Street Journal (March 15, 2018). The flagging performance of WPP PLC, the world's biggest ad agency, is eating into the pay of one of the industry's best paid executives. On Wednesday, WPP disclosed that Chief Executive Officer Martin Sorrell received GBP10 million ($14 million) in company shares as compensation for 2017, a significant drop from the GBP41.6 million in shares that Mr. Sorrell was awarded a year prior. The payment is the first time Mr. Sorrell has been compensated under a five-year remuneration program that began in 2013 when WPP's board instated a cap on his pay in response to investor anger over executive salaries. The program, which is linked to company financial targets and share-price performance, rewarded Mr. Sorrell 73% of the total shares he would have received if the executive had hit all of his targets. Mr. CEO's total pay package -- including his salary, a short-term bonus, pension payments and other benefits -- won't be known until WPP publishes its annual report next month. Mr. Sorrell, long regarded as an oracle of the ad-industry, is coming under investor scrutiny as his empire of agencies -- from Grey and Ogilvy & Mather to Young & Rubicam -- strains under the force of digital disruption. The 73 year-old executive is grappling with clients who are turning away from traditional Madison Avenue campaigns for print and TV in favor of technologies that target consumers as they surf the internet. WPP's share price has dropped by almost a third over the past year as Mr. Sorrell has wrestled with the loss of lucrative accounts. Consumer-goods giants and other companies are redirecting spending they once lavished on ad agency-led campaigns toward tech companies like Facebook Inc., or handling aspects of media-buying or production in-house. Earlier this month, WPP shares dropped sharply after it logged its worst annual performance since the financial crisis and forecast no growth for 2018. "His pay has now come down by a lot two years in a row, and it's still so large. It shows you how massive it was," said Stefan Stern, director of the U.K.'s High Pay Centre, an independent think tank in London WPP said its shares rose 51% over the five-year period covered by the compensation program, outpacing the broader FTSE 100 index that rose 30% during the period. Under WPP's previous incentive program, Mr. Sorrell received almost GBP210 million in compensation between 2012 and 2016, leading to run-ins with investors who argued the amount was exorbitant. In 2013, shareholders voted to cap his compensation at 9.74 times his salary, a total of about GBP20 million. In June, shareholders decided to lower the cap to six times his salary, starting in 2021. Investors who say the firm hasn't gone far enough in reducing Mr. Sorrell's pay have begun questioning whether WPP should do more to plan his succession -- a delicate issue at a company that Mr. Sorrell built from the ground up. "The question for investors is how the business will look when he inevitably retires," Ashley Hamilton Claxton, Royal London Asset Management's corporate governance manager, said in June after voting against Mr. Sorrell's compensation plan, which she considered to still be excessive. Mr. Sorrell, who has led WPP for more than 30 years, has said he deserves the pay packages for masterminding an acquisition spree that helped transform a manufacturer of shopping baskets into the world's biggest advertising company by sales. However, excessive pay awarded through complex programs has attracted growing protests from politicians, the public and investors in recent years. More than 20% of shareholders at WPP's annual meeting last year rejected the firm's compensation plan. Write to Nick Kostov at (END) Dow Jones Newswires March 15, 2018 02:47 ET (06:47 GMT)

(ISE) FTSE ALL SHARE - PRICE INDEX Source: DATASTREAM DRILLING UPDATE Event: Adulis announced results from the Guayuyaco and the Guayabillas wells in Colombia. Guayuyaco flow tested from three separate zones at a combined rate of around 500 bopd. With appropriate pumping facilities it is thought that the well could produce from two zones at around 2,000 bopd and given its proximity to existing infrastructure it could be brought on stream within two months. A second well is now planned on the structure, which could increase the 15 mmbbl predrill reserve estimate. Furthermore, the success at Guayuyaco potentially brings into play other leads in the area including the 100 mmbbl sized Verdeyaco structure. The Guayabillas well recovered several barrels of heavy oil and the well has been suspended. Adulis also announced the start of drilling on the vast Sirruma structure with up to 10 tcf potential and the signing of a new contract at Guachiria Norte. Impact: The positive impact of the result at Guayuyaco is largely offset by Guayabillas although we would expect to raise our valuation when sufficient information becomes available on the new prospects at Guayuyaco and at Guachiria Norte. Even so, these projects are unlikely to overshadow the near-term impact of results from Sirruma, which accounts for around 45% of our entire valuation of the company. Valuation: Our valuation on Adulis is detailed on a prospect-by-prospect basis in the table on the left. Action: Adulis remains an interesting SPECULATIVE BUY given the potential of its forthcoming drilling programme that has an unrisked value in excess of £10/share. The results from Guayuyaco bode well but a lot rides on the outcome at Sirruma. Results are due in March. For important information, please see the Important Disclosures section at the back of this document. Daily Letter | 11 February 23, 2005 Risks associated with our valuation and financial forecasts There are risks associated with the share price achieving our target price and our financial forecasts. Commodity prices may not match our forecasts; as with any oil and gas company, there are operating risks involved in exploration, appraisal and development of fields; foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations will impact both the company's operating costs and revenues. There are also numerous technical and environmental risks associated with the operation of an oil company that could have an impact both upon the company's valuation and our financial estimates.

day_dreamer: Dont think this is the bottom for the shareprice having looked at online quotes. On a monitor spread of 75-80p it's 75.62p bid for 3750 shares but the offer is 77p (below mid price) for 50k so maybe best to wait for next move in share price....those quotes suggest it goes lower first.

addict: With Minerva's share price wallowing in the mire,I can't see it making any sense to block a bid at the right price/on the right terms.Seems to me it's a case of 'when' not 'if' a bid will materialise.DYOR.
mikeatwork22: cor dear 'Chase holdings...' just acquired three quarters of a million shares, its gotta be good news... so, why has the share price gone down ?
sudash: Have a read of this from the 'GREAT' Mr Pyad Selling Allders, Buying Banks By Stephen Bland (TMFPyad) October 18, 2002 Within the last couple of weeks I ditched Allders (LSE: ADS). This dalliance left me with a dose of the fiscal clap, a painful condition in my most important organ, namely my wallet. A total loss of some 32% after dividends received and my biggest hit for many years. My two reasons for pulling out were the recent bad news in the profit warning and the tremendous value I perceived building up in banks about which I wrote a few weeks ago. Allders may still go on to do well but I believed that recovery is likely to be far quicker and possibly just as lucrative if not more so over a similar period in banks or insurances than Allders. I could have continued to hold Allders, which had used only a chunk of my funds though a fair sized one, and invest the rest in banks but the latter proved far more attractive to me, sufficiently so to the extent that I decided to drop the poorly performing store chain. I have never shirked taking a loss if I see good reason to take it, not being one to hang on for a recovery just for the sake of it. There has to be very good value reason to do so though, as distinct from mere market noise, and the profits warning was not just noise. Allders still has a lot of value characteristics, particularly the large discount to book, much of the assets being freehold properties. But the real outer that I like to seek with pyad shares, namely rapidly increasing earnings per share, had been knocked on the head, at least for 2002 anyway. This had to throw 2003 into contention as well. Thus the P/E was no longer very attractive against the market and the yield was not that great. Many banks and insurers were offering the same or more after recent severe falls. Also the net cash may no longer be there, the company having slipped into small net debt position at the last accounts. But what finally tipped the balance was the attractions of other shares. You can't win 'em all and I never look back. Allders is now history. On the value board recently and in my articles I stated that financials like banks and insurance companies now represent a great opportunity, possibly one of the most attractive value situations for a long time. Consequently I have decided to put my money where my mouth is (though admittedly I have often been accused in the past of talking out from where the sun doesn't shine). There was a damn good smell around financials in recent weeks and a particular point which attracted my attention was that poorish news from Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) with their third quarter figures did the share price no harm at all. When bad news fails to dent prices any longer, that is a clear fundamental bear bottom odour signal, as I mentioned on the value board. Though such things can never be sure, share investing being about riding the balance of likelihoods not looking for non–existent certainties. So I have now gone into banks, though with hindsight I should have made it insurances because many of these have rocketed, the reason I didn't was that I perceived them as possibly riskier, not a problem for portfolio holders but that's not me. Not only with the Allders money but the lot. A farm deal but this time a huge portfolio of two, because these are not pyad shares but two substantial side bets if you like. I'll admit to more than a little nervous apprehension at holding a portfolio this large and diversified. My selections are Abbey National (LSE: ANL) and Lloyds TSB (LSE: LLOY), the two cheapest banks in the sector on P/E and yield grounds when I bought. As I write these have already risen sufficiently to more than cover my loss on Allders (in pound terms not percentage amount). That's just on paper so it means little at this stage. It could easily have gone the other way I guess. Nothing really matters in the business of trading shares until you have reverted to the greatest share of all - cash - and discover whether you have more than that with which you started, sufficiently more to justify the risks. Since my banks article, mortgage lender Abbey has become the subject of a weak bid by the Bank of Ireland, using mostly the latter's paper with a small cash sweetener. My investment had little to do with that because I never buy shares on bid hopes, I just felt that Abbey was too cheap on fundamental grounds. Clearly others think so too but the bid has been rejected by Abbey. However this does make the point that value shares are sometimes outed by bids, simply because the same features that attract the value investor can attract bidders, so bid potential comes with value shares for nothing anyway. Lloyds is a proper bank but has been given much harsher treatment by the market than its rivals, possibly to do with the risks of its major insurance subsidiaries though in fact most of the banks have these. I'm not convinced that Lloyds is inferior to the other big banks, which is what the market is saying, and hence I found it to be given an unfairly low rating and therefore a potential value play. When the market recovery takes place, and we may already be starting this but I cannot know of course, banks and insurers will almost certainly do better than the background market. In fact this has already been demonstrated in the recent rally. This geared effect may enable good profits to be made but you can never be certain of anything with shares of course. Meanwhile very high yields are around to keep me happy whilst waiting, assuming that the dividends are maintained of course which again is always a risk. The author owns shares in Abbey National & Lloyds TSB.
