first_img Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content Thursday 3 February 2011 7:57 pm BT surprises the market as profits surge whatsapp Tags: NULL BT shares jumped over three per cent yesterday after the telecoms giant unveiled better than expected results, buoyed by improvements at its Global Services division.BT’s core profit rose seven per cent to £1.48bn in the last quarter of 2010, despite a three per cent sales decline, as it continued to slash costs. Global Services’ sales fell seven per cent but its profit margin jumped an impressive 7.1 per cent. Technology research firm Ovum said the performance was surprisingly strong, with the division having undergone a massive restructuring.Analyst Mark Giles said: “This is a huge bonus for the group – it shows it has cleared up some bad commercial deals very effectively.”BT retail gained broadband market share in the quarter, adding 188,000 customers, or 53 per cent of new business in the sector. This was partly due to strong take-up of its BT Vision internet TV service, which more than doubled its quarterly uptake with 40,000 net additions. But the division still reported its tenth successive quarter of consumer revenue decline, down four per cent, compared to business revenue up one per cent. Overall revenue at the division fell three per cent to £1.97bn from £2.02bn a year earlier. However, Ebitda jumped four per cent in the same period to £452m.Chief executive Ian Livingston said: “Retail had a good quarter with our highest share of DSL broadband net additions for eight years. If you want cheap and cheerful, we’ve got it; if you want the best, we’ve got it.”BT’s pension deficit, which in December 2008 stood at £9bn, fell to £3.7bn thanks to improvements in the market, a change to statutory accountancy methods and BT’s £525m annual contribution. The stock closed up 3.6 per cent at 184.9p.

first_imgFinance Catena Media has cited the impact of regulations on its operator partners as the main reason it failed to hit revenue targets for the first quarter of 2019, while rising costs also hit the affiliate giant’s profits for the period.Revenue for the three months through to March 31, 2019, amounted to €26.1m (£22.4m/$29.1m), an increase of 9% on €23.9m last year but below original forecasts.Search revenue was responsible for €21.7m of this total, up from €20.4m in Q1 of 2018, while subscription activity contributed €900,000 to overall revenue, compared to zero last year. This comes despite a decline in new depositing customers – down 7% year-on-year to 124,007.Catena also noted that 78% of total revenue generated during the quarter came from locally regulated or taxed markets.However, this revenue increase was accompanied by a rise in operating costs: up from €15.3m to €18.4m. Personnel costs jumped from €4.1m to €5.6m, while other operating costs were also up from €4.1m to €5.9m.Catena put this increased spending primarily down to sales and marketing, due to ongoing investment in the US market and the financial services segment. The affiliate giant said that these strategic investments will continue to strengthen its margins moving forward.Despite this higher spend, Catena was able to post an operating profit of €7.8m for the quarter, but this was down on €8.6m in the same period last year. Profit before tax also fell from €5.1m to €2.0m, while profit attributable to the equity holders of the parent company fell from €4.7m to €1.9m.However, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation increased by 8% year-on-year to €11.2m.Catena CEO Per Hellberg acknowledged that regulations impacted operators negatively during the quarter, which in turn meant the affiliate giant came in below its revenue expectations.  However, he also said Catena is continuing with its long-term strategic plan and foresees this having a positive effect from Q2.“Everything we are doing is now converging in the right direction,” he said. “We are continuing our long-term transformation, based on the strategies of organic growth, fewer but larger brands and increased cost control.“We are agilely adapting to changing conditions and expect to see positive developments from the second quarter onwards.”Hellberg named Sweden as a problematic region in Q1, with revenue from many operators down “dramatically” as a result of the new laws that came into effect earlier this year. However, he also said that this will likely benefit Catena in the long term. “History has taught us that that new regulations tend to initially dampen the markets somewhat before turning upwards again,” he said. “New regulation in Sweden further solidified this theory.“Revenue of many operators dropped dramatically in Sweden. For the long term we expect this will prove beneficial for us. Since operators will need even more players, there should be even higher demand for our services.“Additionally, with Swedish legislators considering restricting marketing channels for online gambling, our offering will grow even stronger.”Hellberg also noted growth prospects in the US and that the talk of new states regulating has now turned to action. Although forecasts for the market are not yet in, he said there is potential to double US revenue in the second half of 2019.“Our state-wide brands, such as playpennysylvania.com, are already top-ranked for what we believe are relevant searches and relevant content for consumers and local operators,” he said.“National brands such as PlayUSA.com, BonusSeeker.com, legalsportsreport.com and thelines.com, all have numerous pages dedicated to Pennsylvania. This is a strategy we are well prepared to replicate.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 3rd May 2019 | By contenteditor Catena Media has cited the impact of regulations on its operator partners as the main reason it failed to hit revenue targets for the first quarter of 2019, while rising costs also hit the affiliate giant’s profits for the period.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Kevin Godbold “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Prior to the coronavirus crash, the last time the BP (LSE: BP) share price was as low as the current level of around 296p was in 2010. And that was immediately following the firm’s oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.Even the bear market at the beginning of the century didn’t take it lower. Neither did the credit crunch and financial crisis in the noughties. Prior to the Macondo well disaster, we must look as far back as 1996 to find the share price as low as it is today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The BP share price follows oilThe coronavirus pandemic caused the price of oil to collapse. It was already weak, but now oil trades at prices last seen around 2002, and at levels that were quite normal in the 1990s. So it’s perhaps unsurprising the BP share price is back where it was in the 1990s.Major oil companies such as BP operate highly cyclical businesses. BP shares appear to be hostage to the whims of the prevailing oil price. The evidence is clear. These are on the floor and so is BP’s share price.I’d look at BP as a cyclical investment first. That means I won’t be buying the company’s shares for their growth potential. And I won’t buying for dividend income, no matter how fat the yield.Luckily, that approach saved me from purchasing BP shares in late January when the dividend yield looked tempting and the share price was at 485p. I said in an article back then that BP failed my basic tests for a dividend-led investment. Namely, that the record for revenue, earnings cash flow and the shareholder dividend didn’t show gradual growth. I said: “None of those measures are rising like I want them to, and that reflects in the share price chart.”We could be at the bottom of the cycleTo me, cyclicality means risk. And we’ve seen that risk bite recently. But what about now? With the BP share price this low, should we buy? The only reason I’d buy shares in BP is to ride them up in the next up-leg of the wider economic cycle. And that recovery will be coming, although its timing is unclear.The lockdowns relating to coronavirus will end and demand for oil will rise. Reserves will decline and the oil price will likely lift a bit. If that happens, I reckon BP’s earnings will improve and the share price could elevate to accommodate better trading.However, with governments determined to move towards greener fuels, my guess is the days of high oil prices could be over. And we may have to get used to BP’s share price trading lower than it once did, unless the firm can produce decent operational progress in the years ahead.Meanwhile, in an update on 1 April, BP said we are in “the most brutal environment for oil and gas businesses in decades.” However, the company reckons it’s in “great shape” with decent operating momentum and financial discipline. The directors are optimistic about the long-term outlook.I don’t think investing in cyclical stocks is a precise science, but BP looks like it’s trading at the bottom of an economic cycle. I’m tempted to nibble at a few of the company’s shares now, but this wouldn’t be a high-conviction holding.

first_imgCARDIFF, WALES – MARCH 10: Wales winger Shane Williams in action during Wales training at the Millennium Stadium on March 10, 2011 in Cardiff, Wales. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) “I’m back and fit again but I want to be quicker than I’ve ever been and we think that is possible,” added Williams. “It’s strange but, at 34 years old with 79 caps, I’m realising that I haven’t been running properly and that if I can pick up a few different things I can be quicker. That’s brilliant news for a rugby player, everyone wants to be quicker, from the forwards through to the backs, but if I can achieve that at this stage in my career then I’ll be really happy.“But I’ve got plenty of competition with the likes of George North doing the same training and apparently testing pretty highly. We haven’t done the sprint test yet and I don’t think I’m quite up to top speed yet myself after the injury, but it will be interesting to see who is the fastest. I’m not going to make any claims though, I’ll do my talking on the track when the time comes.” Shane Williams happyto be back in trainingShane Williams is back, ready and raring to go, but he admits he is taking nothing for granted in his bid to be selected for his third Rugby World Cup squad.The Wales record try scorer and the only Welshman to have won the prestigious IRB World Player of the year award (2008) has made a full recovery from the knee injury which cut his 6 Nations tournament short earlier this year.Williams, like the rest of his international colleagues, is half-way through the first of two RWC skills and fitness training camps in Poland, under the guidance of head coach Warren Gatland, backs coach Rob Howley, forwards specialist Robin Mcbryde, skills coach Neil Jenkins and defense expert Shaun Edwards.The Ospreys flyer says he is pleased to be taking it all in his stride. “This is the first proper running I’ve done since the injury in March,” said Williams, who, like the rest of his colleagues, is packing at least two normal day’s training into one 14 hour period each day on the camp, with the aid of Cryotherapy chambers.“But I’m back doing everything the rest of the squad are doing, working hard on both skills and the conditioning side of things here in Poland, and I’m feeling good. All I need to do next is catch-up with them because the boys have been training really hard.“The cryotherapy will kick-start that process though and, contrary to some of the other boys, I actually don’t mind it. We are down to -140C, which is severe cold, that’s low enough to have actually given some of the boys cold burns on their skin.“But it is mentally tough as much as anything else, you have to tell yourself it’s doing you good. It’s colder than I’ve ever been before, but for me I’d rather be cold than be cold and wet as well in the ice baths.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Williams scored two tries in this year’s RBS Six Nations Championship before picking up a knee injury in the home win over Ireland on 12th March, taking his all-time international total to 55 (if you include his two British and Irish Lions scores). He is easily Wales’ leading try scorer 13 ahead of second place Gareth Thomas (40) and the only non-kicker in the top six all-time leading scorers for his country.But, at 34 years-old, he claims he is still learning new tricks and refuses to take selection for his third RWC tournament for granted.“I’m always looking over my shoulder, we have some good youngsters coming through, but I’m not ready to let go yet,” continued Williams. “I’m playing catch up at little bit at the moment because I obviously haven’t been able to run since March, but I know I can’t relax for a second.“I’ve got it all to prove again now and I hope to be able to play in each of those summer internationals (England home and away and Argentina home) and be able to stake my case. No one goes to a World Cup on reputation and I wouldn’t want to be there myself if that was the case. We are looking to peak as a squad towards the end of August, physically and also as a team, and I want to make sure I do that personally as well.”Williams has been working on a one to one basis in Spala with athletics expert Frans Bosch (the biomechanics professor currently seconded to the squad) as well as taking a full part in the fitness regime designed by WRU head of physical performance Adam Beard and daily skills sessions lead by coaches Gatland, Howley, Edwards, Mcbryde and Jenkins.last_img read more

The results point to a shift away from grants and donations towards social investment and more borrowing in the next five years.The report found that 60% of the charities were positive about social investment, with 17% saying it could transform their business models. The research estimates that the shift towards social investment could account for approximately 11% of funding: equivalent to around £4bn–6bn capital for the sector.However, the report highlights a number of barriers to charities using social investment as a funding tool. These include a lack of understanding about it, with some charities feeling conflicted or uneasy about using borrowing or investment tools and others having ethical concerns. 7% were openly negative about social investment and the report found that many charities would not borrow for working capital, fundraising, or for property.Charities are also concerned about how they would create a revenue-generating model to pay back any such investment, and while trustees were positive on almost all aspects of charity finance strategy, the report found them 20% more negative about social investment compared with the CEO or finance director. The report states that addressing trustees’ risk aversion towards social investment will therefore be critical for social investment to be successful.Mark Salway, director of social finance and social investment at Cass CCE said:  “Social investment can often seem overly complicated; however, the reality is that small-value loans are one of the most powerful investment tools to help charities grow and leverage their funding. A mix of grants, donations and social investment funding is now seen as the future for many.“We believe that charities need to be able to use both ‘head’ and ‘heart’ to overcome traditional reservations about perceived commerciality, and to develop robust financial models that will support social impact and the creation of a sector fit for the challenges ahead.”Cass CCE has also published a free Social investment Tools for Success guide, downloadable from its site.

Facebook Caroline Love Wearing tartan has been a Scottish tradition for thousands of years. The patterns identify people with specific families or clans and started during King George IV’s rule, Lori Renfro, a member of the Cowtown Scottish society, said. She also said modern institutions, including universities, are creating their own tartans.Tartan and plaid are similar, but Renfro said tartans are more uniform in their design.“Any way you turn it, it’s the exact same pattern,” she said. “A plaid, it will have a repeating pattern, but it’s not as uniform in its weave, in its design.”The idea for the TCU tartan came, of course, from Provost Nowell Donovan, who is from Scotland.He said he was inspired by the Isle of Skye tartan, which was created through a design competition. Donovan said he approached Dr. Janace Bubonia, the department chair of interior design and fashion merchandising, who had senior fashion merchandising major Aimee Hibler, designed six tartan options.Donovan said he wanted a student to design the tartan to help “give students a chance.”“Let’s look at the talent we’ve got and let’s develop our own talent,” he said. “We don’t always have to spend a fortune hiring someone else when in-house we’ve got a perfectly good set of people who can design and do all sorts of things.”Renfro said the idea of a TCU tartan is a fun way to show school pride. She and Donovan both said the tartan has lots of possibilities for products.“You can do so much with it,” Renfro said. “The sky’s the limit.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Previous articleRec center looks to hire lifeguards, staff for summerNext articleRecord 20,000 first-year applicants for fall 2018 Caroline Love RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more
