Thanks. I had missed that. I have been a DGOC shareholder since flotation so I was very pleased to see CNKS involved.

Cenkos have also announced that the current FD, Philip Anderson, is on his way. Anderson was the first appointment of former CEO, Anthony Hotson, after he took the reins in 2017. Anderson's departure is therefore perhaps unsurprising. Directorate Changes - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/cenkos-securities--cnks-/rns/directorate-changes/201812120700041674K/ The Board of Cenkos Securities plc today announces that Philip Anderson, Chief Financial Officer, has indicated his intention to step down from the Board to pursue other interests and will leave the Company on 31 March 2019. A process to appoint a successor will commence. The Board would like to thank Philip for his commitment and contribution to the Company and wish him well in the future.

Had a few more today - just a few mind. Couple of larger trades went through and then the MMs started to move up, so I guess that was a small overhang cleared. With a £36 million mkt cap of which £22 million is cash / near cash, any improvement in trading should see these moving up smartly. I am rather hoping that our activist investor will also 'encourage' management.

Sector hotting up, for sure. Today's FT. Page 18, important column headed " Macquarie in early-stage discussions on deal for Liberum". The FT column talks of serious interest by foreign buyers in the sector and further consolidation ahead such as strongly rumoured talks between Santander and Peel Hunt. The FT article writes " Several broking executives told the Financial Times that they had received - and rejected- approaches from City and foreign companies this year. But there have been more concrete stirrings in recent months". ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Agreed re MPL business. Unfortunately Cenkos find themselves in the position of 'beggars can't be choosers' at present. In the longer term they really need to be distancing themslves from companies like MPL.

Clearly something went very wrong under Hotson and Durkin has a lot of ground to make up. He does, however, carry a fair bit of baggage with him e.g. Quindell. I will hope for success, but I won't be buying more shares just yet.

Another loss of mandate that has slipped under the radar. Cenkos were previously Nomad/sole broker to Science in Sport (SIS) who have today announced a placing of c£29m. However it seems that within the SIS Half Year Report released on 19/9/18, they announced that Liberum had been appointed as Nomad/sole broker with immediate effect. By my count Cenkos have now lost 4 mandates since August: Verseon Corporation (VSN), AA (AA.), Science in Sport (SIS) & Frontier IP Group (FIPP). The only new mandate in that period would appear to be the appointment as joint broker to Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd (FOG). With less than 2 months to run in the current FY, 2018 would appear to be shaping up to be a forgettable one for Cenkos. By my estimates they have raised roughly 50% of the amount raised on behalf of clients by this time last year. Looking forwards it feels like Jim Durkin has quite a job on his hands to turn performance around. However, as a co-founder he knows the company initimately which should hopefully work to his & the company's favour. Aimho

Former chief Jim Durkin makes comeback at Cenkos - HTTPS://www.ft.com/content/98801e5c-e0ce-11e8-a6e5-792428919cee City stockbroker Cenkos Securities announced a big board shake-up on Monday, with the return to the helm of its former chief executive and major shareholder, Jim Durkin, as well as the immediate departure of its chairman. In an unexpected comeback, Mr Durkin will become chief executive “once regulatory approval has been received,” just 18 months after he stepped down from the small and mid-cap broker. The Liverpudlian, who still has a 9 per cent stake in the company, will replace former Bank of England economist Anthony Hotson, who joined the group in August 2017. The Aim-listed broker had announced Mr Hotson’s departure in early October, just weeks after it reported a 90 per cent drop in pre-tax profits, blaming Europe’s new Mifid markets rules and a dearth of initial public offerings. As part of the shake-up, Cenkos also said on Monday that chairman Gerry Aherne would retire “with immediate effect”, but gave no further details. Mr Aherne, a fund manager who was previously an executive director at Schroders Investment Management, has been chairman since May 2012. A person with knowledge of the situation said Mr Hotson, who had no previous experience in the City’s clubby small and mid-cap broking industry, had stepped down due to a combination of “pressure from the board” as well as “feeling the need to do the right thing” in light of the group’s poor performance. More unexpected, is the return to the helm of Mr Durkin, 58, a founding shareholder who was chief executive of the brokerage between December 2011 and July 2017. He announced his retirement weeks after the company steered the return of logistics group Eddie Stobart to the stock exchange in a £550m float — but had also posted a four-fifths fall in full-year profits for 2016. Several people involved in the industry said Mr Durkin, a seasoned dealmaker who has worked in the City for more than 35 years, was motivated by the fact that he has a stake in the company. “He is the rainmaker,” said one senior broker from a rival group. “[He] does people.” One person close to the company noted that Mr Durkin was in charge when the company was hit by a £535,500 fine from the UK financial watchdog in 2016 over its sponsorship of Quindell, the ailing insurance company now called Watchstone. “He was at the helm for years and there weren’t the controls in place,” the person said. “The problem is nobody wants to do the job.” Cenkos said on Monday that Mr Durkin was “not involved” with Quindell. “It was back-office failings that Mr Durkin successfully worked hard to remedy with the [regulator].” The appointment comes as others in the broking industry — including rivals Numis, Panmure Gordon and Arden Partners — have also suffered poor performances under tricky market conditions. Some experts expect IPO business to dry up altogether in the run-up to the UK’s exit from the EU next March. This year, Cenkos has come under pressure from activist investor Crystal Amber Fund, its fifth-biggest shareholder, which has called for the management to undertake a strategic review with a view to selling all or parts of the group. The shareholder also complained at the time that it considered Mr Aherne was not engaging with them. Crystal Amber founder Richard Bernstein, reiterated his call for Cenkos to look to sell: “There is a tremendous opportunity for Cenkos to be the lead consolidater in an industry crying out for consolidation. But in order to do so it needs good leadership.”
