The Gresham lesson about bonuses for Sarah Willingham and Nightcap

The corporate governance at Nightcap (NGHT) is - as I have exposed on this website so many times - dreadful. That rather surprises me as the non executive chairman Gareth Edwards is not a bad old stick despite having been a partner at the accursed law firm Pinsent Masons.  One issue that the cash strapped company, now right up against the limit with its banks, and with its rollout programme on hold, is bonuses. I urge Gareth to look at events at Gresham (GHE), which - to make it easy for him - are detailed in full below.


BREAKING: Project Pound at Nightcap – the delusional world of Sarah Willingham

On 12 September 2022, as Sarah Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT) announced the opening of a new bar in glamorous Watford, the former Dragon’s Den star proclaimed “Nightcap now has 37 sites within its estate and a further 19 premises under offer or in legal negotiations for all its brands.” Less than two months later she said that the new openings programme was on hold. What changed? It is all to do with “Project pound.”


The greed, the revolting rewarding of failure of Dragons Den star Sarah Willingham exposed

I noted yesterday how the bars chain Nightcap (NGHT) has had to halt its planned rollout because of the cash crisis it faces. In the year to July 3 2022, on sales of c£35 million it reported a pre-tax profit of just £238,000 and the operating cashburn was a stonking £7 million. But boss Sarah Willingham described the year as “rewarding and fun”. Just how Rewarding and fun? You will be horrified…


BREAKING: Every single person owning Nightcap shares has now lost money – but CEO Sarah Willingham says she is having fun & its rewarding for her so that’s okay then

Dragon’s Den “star” La Willingham tells shareholders in Nightcap (NGHT) that for her the past year has been “eventful, fun and, at all times, rewarding”. With her bonus scheme and that for her husband Michael Toxic, that may be true for her family. The shares listed at 10p, peak ramped at 33.5p and the last placing was at 23p. The shares are now just 9p-10p after today’s dire results. So anyone who has ever bought a share in this company since its  January 2021 listing iand who still holds is now out of the money. Do mug punters in Willingham's vanity PLC regard this experience as “fun and rewarding?” It will only get worse for them.
