WH Ireland bosses buy big

Date: Tuesday 05 Apr 2011

LONDON (ShareCast) - Bosses at WH Ireland had the company they work for in their sights today as they splashed out thousands of pounds on shares in the stockbroker.

Chief executive Paul Compton was the biggest spender, taking 670,448 shares at 50p a time. The purchase, which set him back £335,174, takes his holding to 920,338 shares, nearly 5% of the company.

Chairman Rupert Lowe took 182,500 shares at the same price and now has an almost identical holding to Lowe. John Scott upped his holding to 124,575 shares with the purchase of 50,000 at 50p, while Alan Kershaw took his first stake of 20,000, also paying 50p.

WH Ireland, which traces its heritage back to the old Manchester stock exchange, made pre-tax loss of £0.3m in the 12 months to November, much less than the £2.1m deficit reported the year before.

Turnover fell 25% to £18.4m, but the new financial year has started well, in line with the firm’s internal budget and much better than for the previous year.

“Overall, I would say that the year ended with WH Ireland being in much better shape than it has been in recent years, but it is just the 'end of the beginning' rather than cause for congratulation,” boss Compton, who joined the company last year, said.
