In today's Sunday Independent, Shane Ross is hoping to reprise his Eircom success by leading a shareholder revolt at AGMs of the various banks.
Would there be any chance the bould Shane would lead a shareholders revolt in Waterford Wedgewood and Independent News & Media.
Both companies, chaired by Sir Anthony – and he’s also the largest shareholder – have suffered a huge decline in value in recent years.
Waterford Wedgewood shares now trade at one-tenth of a cent per share! They were valued at over €1 within the past decade.
Indo shares trade at 42c, down about 90% from their 2006 high.
Shane will surely urge shareholders in both those companies to go to the AGMs and demand a boardroom clear-out, as Sir Anthony's enterprises now rival the banks when it comes to lousy share performance.
For some reason, I’m not holding my breath on this one.
