Shares in West Bromwich Albion plc

At the moment, just over half of the issued shares in WBA Holdings are held by the Chairman, Jeremy Peace, and a few per cent by the other Board members. The remainder are held mainly by supporters, some of whom invested during the Rights Issues that took place during the 1990s, and there are about 1500 supporters who currently have less than 10 shares each.

Following the takeover of WBA plc by WBA Holdings in December 2004, and the cancellation of the Stock Market listing, shares in West Bromwich Albion are no longer traded in public. The result is that shares change hands only when a buyer and a seller find each other, agree a price, pay the Stamp Duty and submit the appropriate transfer form to the Registrars. A matched trading facility was put in place through J P Jenkins Ltd, who also dealt with a number of other unlisted clubs such as Norwich City, West Ham, Ipswich Town and Sunderland - however, we now understand that they are not currently dealing with shares in WBA Holdings.

Of course, if you happen to have an oil well or two knocking about in the back garden and are interested in buying a LOT of shares, the Board will probably be more than happy to talk to you directly and do you a nice deal...
