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.

Simon Thompson (IC): There has been some important newsflow from Aim-traded shares in WH Ireland (WHI:107p), a corporate brokerage and private client wealth manager. Firstly, 21.86 per cent shareholder Kuwaiti European Holding has exited. Its holding of 6.52m shares has been effectively acquired by existing shareholders Oceanwood Capital Management and Polygon Global Partners, and new shareholder M&G Investments. The three institutions are also backing a £2m placing of new shares at 100p to increase WH Ireland’s core tier 1 capital ratio (11.2 per cent at end of March 2018) and ensure the company has adequate resources in place to comply with the FCA’s capital adequacy requirements. The fundraising bolsters pro-forma net funds to almost £9.5m, and is subject to shareholder approval at a general meeting on 10 October. Their backing is significant as it comes after WH Ireland posted a thumping £2m operating loss in the last four months of the 16-month reporting period to end-March 2018 (new financial year-end) due to the resolution of legacy issues as part of a major restructuring of its private wealth management arm. I certainly wasn’t anticipating that, nor was the market. I wasn’t expecting chief executive Richard Killingbeck to depart either. He is being replaced by former Panmure Gordon boss Phillip Wale. WH Ireland had previously reported an underlying operating profit of £423,000 on revenue of £28.5m in the 12 months to end November 2017. The company incurred around £2.5m of restructuring costs in the 16 months to end-March 2018 with the aim of generating £2m-worth of cost savings in the current financial year by targeting a greater proportion of higher-margin discretionary (accounting for more than two-fifths of assets under management of £2.56bn) and fee-paying execution-only mandates (a third of the total). Clearly, Oceanwood, Polygon and M&G are taking the view that with the restructuring now complete, trading conditions more benign since the start of April and monthly fee income of £1.3m equating to 55 per cent of overall revenue, WH Ireland is finally in a position to capitalise on the hefty investment it has made in its platforms and IT infrastructure and create a scalable business. Understandably, other investors have had concerns with the management changes and the hefty loss reported, which is why the shares are down by around 7 per cent since I last covered the company ('Running gains’, 21 May 2018). However, M&G Capital’s emergence on the share register with a 14.2 per cent stake is very interesting at this stage and is clearly a vote of confidence in the business. The fund manager wouldn't have taken such a large new position without having a degree of confidence that WH Ireland has turned the corner. We will have to await the half-year trading update from the company to ascertain whether that is the case. So, having first advised buying WH Ireland's shares at 68p ('Broking for success', 1 August 2011), it makes sense to continue to hold on to your shares. Hold.

Good to see the new CEO's bio now on the website. Is there anyone he hasn't worked for? Phillip began his career in UK Gilt Edged & convertible bonds, spending ten years at Goldman Sachs in New York and then London, as co-head of pan-European equities. He managed the equity businesses at Commerzbank and then at Knight Securities, where he was appointed European CEO. In 2004 he moved into fund management as CIO of a multi-strategy hedge fund, returning to the sell-side in 2007 with Collins Stewart working closely with the expansion of the wealth management product. Phillip joined Seymour Pierce, the corporate & institutional broker and wealth manager, in 2010 and was appointed its Chief Executive Officer in 2011. Between 2012 and 2016 he was Chief Executive Officer of Panmure Gordon & Co. Prior to joining WHIreland in August 2018, Phillip was Head of Fixed Income (Europe) at Cantor Fitzgerald Europe.

Another placing. What a shambles. At least they wouldn't have had to do much work on the placing announcement, it's almost a word for word copy from the 23 January placing announcement. On a more positive note though, good to see Polygon and Oceanwood staying committed, although they probably have little choice at this point. M&G is a welcome new investor.

Phillip Wale has had 9 jobs in the last 20 years. How long do we give him at WHI?

Final results for 16 month period ending 31 March 2018 due this week. Thursday would be better than Friday... This is what they said in May. Will be interesting to see whether this is still the expectation, or whether we're going to have yet further delays in returning to decent profitability. "Looking forward to the year ending 31 March 2019, the Board anticipates that the combination of lower costs in the Private Wealth Management division together with more normalised levels of transaction revenue from the Corporate and Institutional Broking division will lead to strong progress in the Group's profitability during the current financial year. A further update will be provided with the release of the final audited results in July."

You would think a fund manager and financial advisor could write a clear market statement. It makes you wonder if they are hiding something.

Equity Development pretty quiet these days. Where's their usual ridiculous sum of the parts valuation?

Yet another 'the benefits will come next year' statement from WHI. "Investment costs in regard to the operational platform changes have remained higher than expected during the final four month period, primarily as the resolution of legacy issues has taken longer than anticipated to complete." What on earth does that mean? Management really don't seem to have a handle on the costs at all here. Expect another fund raising soon imo. The major shareholders should be asking Killingbeck to consider his position. He's had long enough to turn round performance here.

Should be a trading statement pretty soon -- it's been 18-20 days after the year end in the last few years. Recent drop has been on pretty low volume, so I'm hoping nothing untoward to report, although you never know with WHI.

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!!

Update on WHI by Simon Thompson today... Enlightening calls - HTTPS://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/comment/2018/02/05/enlightening-calls/ ... 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.

Polygon and Oceanwood taking a big chunk of that placing. Looks like KEH not participating though, which is disappointing.
