Richard Bernstein of activist investor Amber Crystal quoted in The FT (18/8)about the need for industry consolidation and that Cenkos should carry out a strategic review with a view to putting part/all of itself up for sale. Elsewhere in same FT article, the following words appears : "xxxxx Several broking executives told the Financial Times that they had received — and rejected — approaches from both City and foreign companies.". Looks like the pressure is building and that the sector may be in play. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

I think there's an article in the FT today suggesting that there's going to be a spate of m&a activity amongst brokers due to MIFID and with Crystal Amber writing to the BOD here suggesting they put themselves up for sale we might not have to wait too long for some action.

Yes, saw that one. They have done well out of AA though and so was probably on the cards anyway. Just need a big deal or two in H2.

Interesting. -Numis has gone from 225p to 425p in the year since August 2017. -Amber Crystal have started engaging with management. -Cenkos yesterday announce acquisition. -Stockopedia writing; "I continue to suspect that a trade buyer (for example £NUM? it has a £450 million market cap) would be willing to pay a premium to the current share price to take over Cenkos. There has been speculation that one or two of these smaller banks might be thinking about or hoping to merge." Interesting corporate,activist and sectoral events. Perhaps more to come. ALL IMO. DYOR.

FWIW Graham Neary's take on today's acquisition in today's Small Cap Value Report... HTTPS://tinyurl.com/y92r9u33 I've been mentioning this mid-tier investment bank a few times lately. The share price has been struggling as revenue forecasts for the rest of the year have been slashed. And then shareholder Crystal Amber came out swinging with the call for the entire company to be put up for sale. Today we learn that rather than putting itself up for sale, Cenkos has instead made a purchase of its own: the Nomad/Broker business of Smith & Williamson. The sale price isn't given, but I'm sure that Cenkos can afford it. I've not seen Smith & Williamson signing off vast numbers of RNS announcements. Six staff will join Cenkos as a result of the transaction. I continue to suspect that a trade buyer (for example £NUM? it has a £450 million market cap) would be willing to pay a premium to the current share price to take over Cenkos. There has been speculation that one or two of these smaller banks might be thinking about or hoping to merge. It's not my style to speculate on deals like this, as I've been hurt betting that deals would go through before. Nonetheless, I do think the Cenkos share price is near some interesting levels. The trailing value metrics are extremely strong...

fenners. you always seem to want to take issue with me and pick a fight. I don't know why. This is a copy of your today's post above : "You did not even read the first few paragraphs QP and to contradict you entirely - I have just been very interested in reading the whole of that post MT. Its not often you see a post of that length and read all the way through - I have to say it was well written and has prompted me to go and find more info...." Let me respond. And let me correct you. We have all seen MT's post and information before. INCLUDING YOU. It is an exact cut'n'paste job and regurgitation of his post number 2363 of July last year, 2017. Please check for yourself. I have indeed read them. LAST YEAR. It is old, old,old news. He made his point then. Also look at MT's other similar posts numbers 2360 and 2361 and 2362 etc etc. I remain sorry for him that he bears such a grudge. But old news it is. What , however is more surprising is that your powers of memory are clearly failing you as you posted in response to MT last July in your post number 2376. This would demonstrate that you had indeed seen them before and that they are not new to you either. Great news today about the new team joining Cenkos. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Thanks MT. I was vaguely aware of the MPL scam, but this has set it out for all to see. Cenkos has quite a few skeletons in the cupboard, but this is the worst I have seen by a long way. New broom needed indeed.

You did not even read the first few paragraphs QP and to contradict you entirely - I have just been very interested in reading the whole of that post MT. Its not often you see a post of that length and read all the way through - I have to say it was well written and has prompted me to go and find more info.... You can never stop learning about the scams on the market - helps to ensure you avoid the next one.

I'm afraid you're very much incorrect - the MPL scam aided and abetted by the same Nomad continues to this day - for the simple reason the MPL management still has £20m out of the £110m the Nomad helped raise to date left to 'spend'. Shameless CENKOS decided if they were going to quietly continue plundering MPL shareholders funds by continuing to act as Nomad, it would be a good idea to remove any trace of their previous involvement with MPL from their website by taking down all references of their involvement arranging the £73m MPL IPO and £37m placing.

He will certainly have a lot to sweep. I've been in and out of Cenkos quite a few times in recent years and almost always made a decent profit - but I do have to hold my nose now and then. MT - we know each other from other threads. Do I take it you caught a giant cold on MPL? Easy done, I'm afraid. Lots got caught out on Chinese frauds as well, plus the occasional Israeli and CRS ones. I have a simple investing rule - avoid dodgy jurisdictions like the plague.
