I only have a small stake here but am not too worried about the competition from Sorrell for the simple fact of his age. Has he enough years left in him to get even close to being a threat to WPP? I don't think so.

They should have made him sign a non competition clause. he has a significant holding in WPP so any damage he may cause them would reduce his own net worth.

I wonder why Founder gets kicked out with huge compensation and no non-completion clause in a very complicated changing market I got out last week at 1240 just above my cost for these reasons and am a happy bunny Won’t be going back in

Picked up a few of these this morning at 1188.1p inc.costs. Not without risks of course, especially now that Martin Sorrell has gone but it is looking pretty cheap now.

Treating the company as a personal piggy bank? The AGM is today. here's the FT's take; WPP’s annual general meeting later today looks set to dominate the City news, following allegations about the behaviour of the advertising group’s former boss, Martin Sorrell - and subsequent promises by the board to review its code of conduct. It follows publication of a Financial Times investigation into the circumstances surrounding Sir Martin’s departure. At the time, the company did not give any reason, citing a non-disclosure agreement with Sir Martin. But several past and current employees told the FT that he had bullied assistants, while a company investigation into his conduct examined a whistleblower’s claim that he had been seen entering a Mayfair brothel a year ago. Sir Martin has denied the allegations. So at 12 noon in the Purcell Room, at the Southbank Centre, WPP shareholders will be able to tell the company what they think about its handling of the affair. Assuming they can find a cab driver to go south of the river. And, as Sir Martin found, finding a driver to take you where you want to go can prove problematic. A number of investors plan to protest over the way WPP dealt with the allegations about Sir Martin. Calstrs, the US’s second-largest public pension fund, has indicated it will vote against the re-election of WPP chairman Roberto Quarta. It did not disclose the reasons for its vote, but then not disclosing reasons for one’s behaviour seems very much a WPP thing. However, Calstrs decision comes after Glass Lewis, the shareholder adviser, called on shareholders to withhold their support for Mr Quarta over succession planning concerns. Glass Lewis also called on shareholders to vote against the company’s pay report, arguing that without more information on Sir Martin’s departure, shareholders were unable to determine the extent to which the former chief executive should be treated as a so-called “good leaver”. Sir Martin has left WPP with share awards worth up to £20m. Hermes EOS, another shareholder adviser, has recommended investors vote against executive pay at the company. Institutional Shareholder Services, meanwhile, called on shareholders to back the re-election of Mr Quarta, despite acknowledging “a lack of transparency surrounding [Sir Martin’s] departure”. Royal London Asset Management, the UK fund manager, said it had abstained on Mr Quarta’s re-election, but had voted against WPP’s pay because of the levels of incentive offered in 2017. Calpers, the US’s largest public pension scheme, also said it would vote against pay at WPP, but will back Mr Quarta. WPP’s current co-chief, Mark Read, has said he and fellow co-chief operating officer Andrew Scott will “lead a review of how our policies and codes of conduct are put into practice at the parent company, and how we can make improvements”. He stressed that “all WPP working environments must be places where people feel safe and supported”. That may not apply to board members at the Purcell Room later today.

Thank you. It's a hatchet job, but does it really reflect that badly on him? The sort of man who creates something out of nothing is never going to be an easy-going, pipe and slippers type. And unless £80k a year is standard for PAs, there's an element of danger money involved, acknowledgement that life isn't going to be easy.

more likely this me thinks: " Berenberg cuts advertising group WPP to "Sell" from "Hold", expecting co's situation "to get worse before it gets better" * "All is not well from an operational perspective" says brokerage in relation to co's Q1 relative performance vs peers - sees challenges as more difficult and costly to fix than consensus foresees... * Berenberg forecasts a potential step down in margins -- models FY 2019 margins c. 150 bp below and EPS 9 pct below consensus, citing "incremental fee pressure at a time of management change" * Leverage will not fall meaningfully says brokerage, citing current guidance for acquisitions and buybacks * Brokerage now assumes a flat dividend, saying appointment of new CEO creates scope for cash return expectations to be rebased * Brokerage sees scope for de-rating and consensus EPS downgrades, says co is most expensive ad agency on EV/EBITDA metric - cuts PT 15.7 pct to 1075p

Advisory group ISS has recommended voting in favor of all resolutions proposed by the board of WPP PLC (WPP.LN) ahead of the company's annual general meeting, the first since the departure of former chief executive Martin Sorrell. In a report to investors, ISS gave its support to Executive Chairman Roberto Quarta saying that it is in the best interests of shareholders to have continuity in the leadership, given the board's response and actions after the exit of Mr. Sorrell. Last month, Mr. Sorrell stepped down from the company he founded more than three decades ago following the conclusion of an investigation into an allegation of personal misconduct. Mr. Sorrell denied any wrongdoing.

The transaction with S4 Capital constitutes a reverse takeover under the Listing Rules and as a result the Company has requested a suspension of listing of its shares. This is normal procedure with a RTO.
