Special interest attached to the recent meeting of share - holders

of the Financial Times (1928), Ltd., as it constituted the first annual meeting of the new company formed in January of last year. Sir William Berry was able to present a most satisfactory report to the shareholders, showing a profit of £191,000 had been earned, the figure being reached after making provision for income tax. In fact the profits constituted a record in the history of the paper. As Chairman of the company, it was natural that Sir William should speak warmly of the popularity of the paper and its many strong features, but the tribute was well merited and will be endorsed by very many readers.
