LONDON, 11 October 2012 – Panmure Gordon & Co plc shareholders are being targeted by sophisticated ‘boiler room’ fraudsters, who employ high-pressure tactics. In some instances, telephone cold-callers offer to acquire shareowners’ holdings in Panmure Gordon at a premium to the current price, but only after the shareholder has paid a substantial amount of money as a ‘guarantee’ for the transaction.

We urge our shareholders to exercise extreme caution before transferring any cash or shares to any unknown party, especially an unknown individual who has called you unexpectedly.   Please check with your financial advisor or, if in any doubt, read the FSA’s advice on share fraud at Downloads/FSAShareFraudWarning2012.pdf or to visit the FSA’s website
