SueHelen - 20 Aug 2004 16:58 - 10 of 64

Evolution Beeson Gregory dumped quite bit of stock yesterday in one go after declaring their 11% holding the day before. May be the reason for the 22% drop in price today. They have less than a 3% holding now.

SueHelen - 20 Aug 2004 23:32 - 11 of 64

Confirmation of reason for the fall today : press mention, will appear in tomorrow's Independent Newspaper.

Hansard Communications dropped 19.5p to 69.5p after Evolution Beeson Gregory disclosed that it had sold down its holding in the City PR firm to below 3 per cent. At one point, the broker held an 11 per cent stake in Hansard, which has seen its shares set alight by news of a deal with millionaire entrepreneur Terry Ramsden.

Evolution and David Newton the Monaco-based former stock broker who also this week also cut his holding in Hansard to below 3 per cent are both believed to have done very well out of their investment in the company. Even after yesterday's fall, the group's shares are still up 700 per cent on the year.

SueHelen - 23 Aug 2004 16:48 - 12 of 64

Any news updates Snip? or is it just fancy charts as usual. Down 57% in the last 2 trading days. Or shall I dig the news out for you.

SueHelen - 23 Aug 2004 16:59 - 13 of 64

Chart Update first as one for the last 2 trading days is missing :


Having read through the last few RNS, a lot of trusts have been dumping their shares at the 80 pence levels and a discounted fundraising is coming hence the sharp fall in the price. A bearish note came out from Tom Winnifrith of today as well.

So simple, look at the news first Snip then the charts.

SueHelen - 23 Aug 2004 23:38 - 14 of 64

Press mention : will appear in tomorrow's Times Newspaper.

The three AIM-listed vehicles of Terry Ramsden, the racehorse owner and former warrants trader Hansard Group, down 25p to 44p, TradingSports, off 6p at 24p and Caplay, 238p cheaper at 1018p dominated the roster of AIMs losers on bearish comment from, the investment website.,,8211-1229926,00.html

Immediate release: 24 August 2004

Financial Development Corporation plc

(formerly "Hansard Group Plc")

Update on Placing

The directors (the "Board") of Financial Development Corporation plc ("FDC" or
the "Company") announce that three of the investors in the placing announced on
23 July 2004 ("Placing") (the "Proposed Investors") which had returned duly
signed placing letters have not paid the subscription monies due to the Company
for the new ordinary shares of ?0.001 each ("New Ordinary Shares") subscribed
by each of them.

The Company is seeking to replace the Proposed Investors in the Placing with
other investors and is taking legal advice in relation to this matter as to the
appropriate course of action. The Board expect that the Placing will still
raise at least ?6.8 million before expenses, excluding the Proposed Investors.
At present, the Company has conditionally placed 220.5 million New Ordinary
Shares (excluding the shares placed with the Proposed Investors) and has
received the subscription monies for 164.3 million New Ordinary Shares,
amounting to ?4.93 million.

The Placing is conditional upon (1) the placing of 355 million New Ordinary
Shares being fully subscribed and the Company receiving the aggregate placing
price for those New Ordinary Shares, being ?10.65 million (the "Subscription
Condition") and (2) the admission to trading on AIM of the New Ordinary Shares
to be issued in the Placing. The Company has the right to waive the
Subscription Condition in whole or in part.

In order to allow further time for the intended replacement of the Proposed
Investors in the Placing and for the Board to consider legal advice in relation
to this matter, the Board has decided to postpone the first day of admission of
New Ordinary Shares (being the New Ordinary Shares which will result from the
10 for 1 share subdivision announced on 23 July 2004 and the New Ordinary
Shares to be issued in the Placing) to trading on AIM until Friday 27 August

What's happening here Snip, updates please and not fancy charts. All smells too fishy, surprise that you've sold out and not mention that to other investors here. Since your last post, the price is down 70%.

SueHelen - 24 Aug 2004 17:14 - 17 of 64

More falls coming tomorrow after the above news release after market close today.

Snip - 24 Aug 2004 17:17 - 18 of 64

sorry folks no more updates as the thread has been taken over by a thread wrecker/ alias ramper of ETQ. I hope that you have made two good trades as I have done. As I said this is a risky stock but I am preparing to go back in depending on the next few days

SueHelen - 24 Aug 2004 17:22 - 19 of 64

What's left to update now, what after the falls, you should have given updates before the falls.

bahader - 24 Aug 2004 22:05 - 20 of 64

Final Results


skinny - 12 Nov 2012 14:23 - 22 of 64

From Friday :- Interim Management Statement


· Overall new business margin of 10.7% (Q1 2012: 9.7%) reflects the continued increase in the proportion of regular premium business, in line with the Group's stated strategy;

· Regular premium new business flows remain resilient: £30.3m PVNBP in the quarter (Q1 2012: £33.9m), arising primarily from the growth market of the Far East;

· Single premium flows of £8.8m have reduced from £10.6m received in Q1 2012. This reflects the impact of volatile markets, which are affecting the timing of investment decisions and the Group's strategy of focussing on more profitable regular premium new business;

· Through profitable new business and improved market conditions, EEV at 30 September 2012 has increased marginally from £224.3m at 30 June 2012;

Hansard Global plc

("Hansard" or "the Group")

New business results for the six months ended 31 December 2012

Hansard Global plc, the specialist long-term savings provider, issues its new business results for the six months ended 31 December 2012 (H1 2013), which demonstrate continuing success in the Group's strategy to source regular premium new business from international growth markets and to drive significantly higher new business margins.


-- Strong growth in regular premium sales has underpinned Q2 2013 sales of GBP44.3m on the basis of Present Value of New Business Premiums ("PVNBP") which are 13.3% ahead of Q1 2013 levels;

-- Overall new business margin of 12.1% (H1 2012: 10.4%) reflects the continued increase in volume and proportion of regular premium business, in line with the Group's stated strategy;

-- Regular premium new business in H1 2013 of GBP66.8m PVNBP, primarily from the growth markets of the Far East and Latin America, remained in line with the GBP67.6m recorded in H1 2012;

-- As a result of the Group's strategy of focussing on more profitable regular premium new business and uncertain economic conditions in Europe, single premium new business flows of GBP16.6m in the period have fallen from GBP22.1m in H1 2012;

-- Over 1,300 policies have been introduced electronically in H1 2013 using the Online new business facility through Hansard OnLine, representing approximately 76% of regular premium policies issued in H1;

-- Assets under Administration of GBP1.05bn as at 31 December 2012 are broadly in line with the position at 30 September 2012 and marginally above the level at 30 June 2012.

· New business premiums of Hansard International Limited of £34.4m PVNBP in the quarter have increased by 4.2% (Q1 2013: £33.0m). Regular premium flows of £27.8m have reduced marginally from £28.4m received in Q1 2013, while Single premium flows of £6.6m have increased by £2.0m from Q1 2013;

· The Group has traded profitably during the period and generated strong positive cashflows.
