    Thumbs up whatever

    Please, dear teachers, do these sentences mean exactly the same?

    No matter what is the occasion, he always comes.
    He always comes, whatever the occasion.


    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    The first should read:
    No matter what the occasion, he always comes. OR
    No matter what the occasion is, he always comes.

    Otherwise yes they're exactly the same.
