Just a thought, will the new guys be buying some shares when they come on board or will they get options, if they do decide to buy shares then I can't see a share buy back any time soon.

Remaining directors are: John Gunn Chief Operating Officer qualifications ? Nilesh Jagatia Chief Financial Officer/Secretary qualifications ? Samantha Esqulant Chief Operating Officer qualifications ? Perhaps they are all member of the London Stock Exchange?

Interesting article on the brokerage scene ARDEN AIM-listed broker's revenue surges as it gets set for Mifid By Dylan Lobo 16 Jan, 2018 at 10:26 AIM-listed broker's revenue surges as it gets set for Mifid Arden Partners has swung into profit on the back of a surge in revenue in an otherwise tough environment for brokers. In the 12-months to 31 October, the AIM-listed broker posted a profit of £700,000 versus a loss of £400,000 in the previous year. Revenue jumped 79% from £5.9 million to £10.5 million, with the second half accounting for £7.6 million of this. The numbers gave Arden confidence to reinstate a dividend of 1p, having withheld the payout in the previous year. The market welcomed the results, with shares in Arden jumping 3.1% to 54.15p by 10am. The performance marks a turnaround for Arden, which has battled against low volumes at the smaller end of the broking industry in the last few years. Last May the firm appointed Donald Brown as its new chief in an overhaul of its boardroom. At the same time the company raised £5 million from investors to shore up its capital reserves. 'The last few years have been challenging for the broking industry, and in particular for small and mid-cap stockbrokers,' Arden chair Luke Johnson told the market. 'A sustainable revival in corporate performance is dependent on confidence amongst fund managers and a significant indicator of this is their willingness to invest in their brokers.' With Mifid II coming into force at the start of this year, Brown expects the broking industry to continue to face challenges. One of the biggest threats posed by the European regulation is new rules on research, through which fund managers pay brokers separately for research and trading services rather than bundling costs together. 'We recognise that the broking services industry will experience challenges in the year ahead, especially in the light of the introduction of the Mifid II regulations on 3 January 2018,' Brown said. Johnson admits the pressures could lead to further M&A activity among brokers. 'The broking industry is in need of further consolidation and we are always prepared to explore opportunities to combine with complementary businesses to facilitate cost savings and revenue expansion,' Johnson said. '[Meanwhile] our healthy balance sheet puts us in an excellent position for possible expansion.'

...No. Martin Davison commented: "I have very much enjoyed my time on the board of Octagonal; helping it grow into the multi faceted Financial services organisation that it is today. I wish John and the board every success in the future and look forward as a shareholder to watching the development of the exciting new bond business (Synergis) and the HK operation where there is considerable potential for growth ."

Martin Davidson is the holder of 22,065,000 shares in Octagonal, in addition to the Synergis holding. Will he sell out now?

Martin has not been part of the SynerGIS management since May last year. The current team look more than capable though... https://www.synergisbonds.com/about-us

It is disappointing as I seem to remember (despite being non-exec) that he was quite involved with the SynerGIS launch and also awarded share options as a result. It does therefore seem a surprising time for him to go. From the RNS of 22/3/17 "Martin Davison, a Non-Executive Director of Octagonal, who will act as an executive Director of SynerGIS was a co-founder of the business and has been issued 12.5% of the SynerGIS equity." So based on that perhaps SynerGIS is one of "his other business commitments". However it seems strange for it not to be spelled out in yesterday's RNS?

Blue flag - He is only a non exec. Why would he emphasise still being a share holder. Cannot remember seeing that in an RNS before in similar circumstances. Just offering another view

Martin Davison who has just resigned owns 22,065,000 / 3.94% of OCT share Capital..As a Non Executive Director he would be Privy to the direction of Travel and Growth Strategy of OCT...and yet he resigns.. What is even more interesting is that as recently as May 2017 Martin purchased approx 1 million additional shares in OCT... and 7 months later he resigns.. Whilst John Gunn CEO of OCT remarks that due to increasing demands from Martins other business commitments he has resigned... Can this really be the reason? with over 22 Million shares in OCT and not now being ina position to influence further the direction of travel... will he retain or will he dispose of his holding in OCT and over what period of time ..A dumper or a retainer ?

Sounds like a genuine reason for moving. And he clearly intends to keep his shareholding... Martin Davison commented: "I have very much enjoyed my time on the board of Octagonal; helping it grow into the multi faceted Financial services organisation that it is today. I wish John and the board every success in the future and look forward as a shareholder to watching the development of the exciting new bond business (Synergis) and the HK operation where there is considerable potential for growth ." The Company is in discussions regarding the appointment of two Non-Executive Directors to the Board, one of which has been identified and will be announced when all regulatory checks have been completed.
