gargoyle2: 910k shares sold today at 60p. If I remember rightly, that was the number that Killingbeck held when he was fired (sorry, left to pursue other opportunities). Must be him finally out, I reckon. I wonder if the share price can move ahead, now that the overhang has gone.
gargoyle2: Killingbeck has 910,000 shares here, which I'm guessing he'll want to get rid of, now that he has no control over what's going on at WHI (if, indeed, he ever did). Could be a drag on the share price for a while. Now trading below the recent placing price.
tradingplaces85: I am new to trading. Can anyone help me understand the profit 3-4 years ago pre tax was 16.5 million or so and the three years after the profits have fallen and the share price has gone up? Also if they are not making the same amount of profit how is the equity similar several years later and assets are the same along with debt. Any help would be greatly appreciated to try and get my head around this. Thank you!!
speedsgh: Update on WHI by Simon Thompson today... Enlightening calls - HTTPS:// ... I can see two scenarios unfolding here. Either a combination of bolt-on acquisitions, and a strong return to profitability on the private client side will drive a share price rerating, or WH Ireland will become a bid target given. Equity Development's sum-of-the parts valuation is almost double the current share price, highlighting the low valuation being placed on its private wealth management business. So, having first advised buying the shares at 68p ('Broking for success', 1 August 2011), and last reiterated that advice at 152p (‘Exploiting value plays’, 25 July 2017), I feel my 175p target price is not only reasonable, but likely to prove conservative. Buy.
gargoyle2: Can't be long before KEH makes an offer for the whole company imo. With costs of regulation going up, why wouldn't they combine it with their investment in Armila Capital (also FCA regulated and where Humphrey Percy is CEO)? The share price now is only a touch over what they paid for their 23%, and I can't see Oceanwood (15%) or Polygon (25%) sitting around without agitating for a full bid. All imo.
gargoyle2: "Under the terms of the JSOA, Adam Pollock has an option to acquire the ESOT's interest in the JSOA Shares for nil cost at any time between 30 May 2020 and 30 May 2027 provided certain performance conditions are met based on achieving group and divisional profit targets" Frustrating that they don't tell the shareholders what those performance conditions are. Contrast that with the terms of Killingbeck's and Cowland's deals with the ESOT, where the exercise price of their options to acquire were clearly stated in the relevant RNS. Their deals depend on the share price at certain dates, rather than performance targets, but there should still be no reason why Pollock's deal can't be disclosed imo.
gargoyle2: See my post #1807 re Killingbeck's share ownership terms. He has a very strong incentive to get the share price as high as possible before/at October 2016. Wouldn't surprise me at all if we saw some corporate action before then. All IMO, DYOR, etc.
gargoyle2: Just looking back at the terms on which Killingbeck jointly owns 1,000,000 shares with the ESOT. The relevant RNS was in October 2013. Key points are: RK has an option to acquire the ESOT's interest in the shares at a maximum price of 74.5p per share at any time between October 2016 and October 2023. The price he has to pay is subject to a formula based on the total return to shareholders over a 3 year period. It is dependent on the mid-market price on 28 October 2016 plus the aggregate dividends paid in the preceding 3 years. If that total is less than or equal to GBP1.15, the price is 74.5p; if it's 200p or more, the price will be nil. There's a sliding scale between those amounts. In other words, RK has a strong incentive to get the share price to 200p within the next year or so.
paleje: Small observation this morning's Citywire 'Shares the pro's are buying':- Hedge fund managers build big WH Ireland stake Renowned hedge fund investors Reade Griffith and Christopher Gate have both upped their stakes in WH Ireland (WHI) to a combined 24% of the company’s shares. Griffith upped his stake to 13.5% of the business worth £3.9 million at a share price of 118p, while Gate increased his holding to 10.8% worth £3.1 million. The moves follows last week’s news that prominent Conservative party donor Sir Theodore Agnew has disposed of his entire 3.6% stake for £1.1 million. Listed wealth managers have provided rich pickings for hedge fund investors with Griffith profiting from a 29% position in Ashcourt Rowan ahead of its £120 million sale to Towry last March. Reade and Gate have made their names investing in turnaround companies and WH Ireland has been through a period of significant change, restructuring the business and rationalising its branch network.
gargoyle2: Pretty happy with my investment here, after seeing today's results. Here's Equity Development's take (or at least a summary of their report today): ---- Despite continuing adverse market conditions in the first few months of 2015, with the number of companies on AIM falling, money raised on AIM 18% lower and the value of trades 31% lower than in H1 2013/4, WH Ireland has made good progress in the first half of its current financial year (6 months to 31 May). It achieved growth in revenue, Pre Tax Profit, Assets under Management, and its Corporate Client list. Profits were well over double the comparable half-year, on either a Headline Earnings or IFRS basis, and EPS more than trebled to 1.86p. The Private Wealth Management increased Assets under Management and Advise from £2.69bn to £2.76bn on a statutory basis, and the mix has improved with continued growth, to £834m, in the more valuable discretionary Assets under Management. Within Corporate Broking WHI grew its client list to 98, (11.3% of all companies on AIM), took part in 15 transactions (v 9 in H1 2013/4), grew retainers by 7% to £1.68m and grew transaction fees by 30% to £2.73m. We continue to believe that WHI is undervalued: A standard sum of parts valuation (using 4% of Discretionary, 2% of Advisory and 0.5% of Execution Only AUM plus surplus cash and equity in the Head Office building) comes to £61m, equivalent to 249p/share, over double the current price. Using a more conservative basis and applying a 10% conglomerate discount could reduce that to 177p, still 50% above the current share price.
