Good read across Private client investment manager Brewin Dolphin said trading in the fourth quarter to end-September has seen commission income nearly reaching the very strong levels recorded in the comparable period last year. The group said fee income for the quarter will reflect the level of the market on Tuesday 5th October, the day of its quarterly fee run and the increase in funds under management in real terms, which has been strong. Total funds under management at 26th September 2010 were £23.2bn, up 13.2% from £20.5m the previous year. Brewin said discretionary funds have grown by 10.8% in real terms comfortably ahead of the Boards' stated aim of growing discretionary funds by more than 5% p.a. in real terms. The firm said it is looking forward to 2011 with confidence.

I don't beleieve there are enough sellers. I think that's the point. I am very pleased to have an institutional buyer at 9+.. I think the wording was poor and ill judged, for sure.

MT Glass Yes - I was trying to think of the correct terminology. Many thanks. Very Mary I have no objection to the options, I have no objection to the selling. It is the hypocrisy that gets me. If instutions want the shares let them come to market. I am sure that the MMS would be only to happy to oblige!

Darias - like VMH I presume you mean a share split not a dilution.

the shares you would sell would not have been bought at 9 either.. u mean a 2 for 1 stock split then ? i imagine the options were granted at the price at the time of the grant.. they have just exercised them. They are part of the managers compensation. - You can vote agaginst it if you like, as a shareholder.. I am OK with it :- Are you creating any value at BM ? nope - are they.. oh yes. If a company sold shares to new holders - diluting my holding, and then paid it out to shareholders as a divi - I would exit that company before you could say jack rabbit..

A 2 for one dilution does not actually dilute the value of anyone's shares but makes the shares more liquid. A placing where money raised is paid out as a special dividend or offered to existing shareholders does not dilute the company's value. A placing raises 500m then the company has 500m of extra funds. This does not reduce the value of my holding and if an increased dividend was paid it is likely to even raise the share price. The value of my holding has dropped because of the daft RNS. I accept that they can sell to realise the value of their assets it is the hypocrisy that I object to. Your share of the business on release of the RNS has fallen o.6% since the announcement. Besides the shares they sold were not bought at £9 the price on offer to me and you but as an exercise of options at a substantially discounted price.

why would you want to be diluted ? - You too can sell your shares to satisfy instiutional, or other demand - you just have to do it through a market maker. If you had substantial capital tied up in a stock which had gone up 10 fold, you'd be mad to not take some of the table from time to time (perhaps to buy a house, or a car or pay school fee's..) - and bear in mind they are they guys and girls workinhg hard to make you richer.. They will have been approached by institutions - existing or new - and I for one am more than happy that the directors of the business are making me as an (part) owner of the business, wealthier. I would be angry of they diluted MY share of the business... and issued themselves options to avoid their own dilution.

I dont know why but I am furious at the way we, as shareholders, are treated as fools. If there is a problem of liquidity which is implied in the news release. Why not do a placing and then pay out a special dividend? Why not do a two for one dilution? No we sold our shares to satisfy institutional investors. DUH

Its good of the directors to think that the institurional investors need a leg up to buy their stock however why should the private investors be shafted in this fashion? Its the hypocrisy that gets me - they dont write "we sold our shares in order to take a bit of profit out of the recent gains in price" Instead we get, "certain directors sold an aggregate 246,171 ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to satisfy demand from institutional investors."

half the mkt cap in cash to although some of it owing to the companies that it bought out, although it did say that it would pay for that thru cash flow and current banking facilities. Def on the watchlist imo

Earnings per share rose to 36.31 pence from 22.26 pence a year ago. Profit before taxation for the year rose to £5.68 million from £3.18 million in the prior year.

The Board recommended final dividend of 6 pence per share, payable on 25 October, to shareholders on the register on 24 September 2010. Commenting on the results, Chris Macdonald, CEO, said, "The year under review has seen significant progress across the group: substantial milestones such as £2 billion FUM have been passed, with all growth strategies demonstrating progress. Organic growth fuelled by office openings and new strategic alliances with professional introducers has been a key driver, but has been complemented by the acquisition of Lawrence House during the year and of Braemar Group post year end." "Alongside strong financial performance the group has continued to invest in infrastructure and employees to ensure that we continue to deliver high levels of service and performance to our clients. We are well placed for the rest of the current calendar year and beyond, he added
