Ultimate to snap up Ashley

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL Ultimate Finance Group will snap up Ashley Commercial Finance in an audacious £4.75m reverse takeover.The group will pay £3.7m in cash and £1.05m in shares.Almost £2m of the funds were raised by a share placing, which was buoyed by the firm’s strong recent performance.Ultimate, which will have a market cap of almost £8m after the transaction closes, estimates the deal will help it to save £400,000 a year as well as boosting earnings potential from the first year.Shares in Ultimate, an Aim-listed provider of financial services to small businesses, soared last month after it reported a 196 per cent increase in full-year pre-tax profit.The firm, which provides companies with an alternative to bank overdrafts, made a pretax profit of £406,000 compared with £137,000 the previous year. That beat house broker WH Ireland’s forecast of £350,000.Clive Garston, chairman of Ultimate said: “We believe we will continue to see growth in demand for our services as banks restrict the overdraft facilities available to SMEs.”Analysts at WH Ireland said of the takeover: “Ashley is a highly complementary acquisition for Ultimate. Given the level of synergies, plus Ashley’s additional access to funding as part of the larger entity, we expect the deal to be earnings enhancing from year one.”ANTONIO BOSSIARBUTHNOTSECURITIESArbuthnot Securities acted as nominated adviser and joint broker on the reverse takeover. Heading up the team was corporate finance director Antonio Bossi.Before joining Arbuthnot in 2002 Bossi worked for ABN Amro Wholesale Banking for a year. From 1995 to 2001 he worked for Baring Brothers International, first as assistant director, then as vice president. He was educated in Italy at Politecnico di Milano.Bossi has also advised on share placements by Vane Minerals and Xcite Energy this month.Last month he landed the role as advisor to fast growing Aim?listed international investment company Brainspark. Other clients include Midas Capital, Proton Power Systems and Viridas.Also working on the deal for Arbuthnot was Paul Gillam, who is on the corporate finance team. He previously worked as an analyst for UBS Investment Bank for two years. Davies Arnold Cooper acted as legal advisor on the deal.

Eurozone growth slightly down

first_img KCS-content Thursday 16 December 2010 8:13 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Eurozone growth slightly down Share Economic growth in the Eurozone has been marginally slower this month than in November, according to data released yesterday. The Markit Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), which measures activity in both manufacturing and service sectors, dropped by half a point to 55. All figures over 50 signal an expansion in activity. Germany’s boom was reflected in the data, that showed German PMI reaching 59.7, its highest level since June 2006. Core economies continue to make up for the Eurozone’s struggling periphery, although French PMI dropped by over a point to 55.3.

888 expects to surpass earnings expectations for 2020

first_img Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 888 expects to surpass earnings expectations for 2020 26th June 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Poker Online gambling operator 888 Holdings has said it expects to post higher-than-forecast earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for the 2020 calendar year, despite the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on its business.Though 888 is yet to publish its results for the first quarter, an update released on 24 March showed that the operator traded well in the period, and the operator claims this continued in the period from the end of March to 23 June.Average daily revenue for the entire year-to-date to 23 June was up 34% compared to 2019, which 888 said reflected higher levels of customer acquisition during the second half of 2019 across several regulated markets.The operator said it also benefited from a structural shift towards online services that accelerated across several consumer-facing verticals in recent months, due in part to the shutdown of land-based gambling as a result of the pandemic.888 noted a particularly encouraging performance within its poker business, and while sports betting was hit by the cancellation of events due to Covid-19, it saw a better-than-expected customer reaction to the return of competitions in recent weeks. During June so far, the sports revenue run-rate was ahead of June 2019.However, 888 also said it was mindful of possible headwinds in the second half of 2020 including the potential for a period of prolonged global macro-economic uncertainty that could impact consumers’ spending on its products.Despite this, the 888 board said it is confident the operator will “significantly” surpass its EBITDA expectations for the full year“We are pleased with 888’s trading during the year to date which has resulted in the board now anticipating that adjusted EBITDA for 2020 will be significantly ahead of its prior expectations,” 888’s chief executive Itai Pazner (pictured) said.“This performance builds on 888’s strong customer acquisition during 2019 and our continued focus during recent years on entertaining a greater number of recreational customers.”Pazner also noted that 888 is now in the early phases of enabling some teams to return to its offices, with a number of new guidelines and measures in place to help protect all workers.“Our global teams have demonstrated fantastic flexibility and commitment as they have had to adapt to new ways of working over recent months,” he said.“888 is well positioned to continue to benefit from a potential long-term shift towards online services that we have seen accelerate across several consumer industries during the Covid-19 pandemic.”The trading update comes after 888 in April revealed that revenue increased to a record high of $560.3m (£451.6m/€499.6m) in 2019, but profits fell as gaming taxes and other expenses increased.Revenue was up 5.7% year-on-year, with 888 saying revenue from regulated and taxed markets represented a record $414.6m of this total in 2019.center_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games Online gambling operator 888 Holdings has said it expects to post higher-than-forecast earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for the 2020 calendar year, despite the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on its business.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img I last wrote about FTSE 100 growth and income star Associated British Foods (LSE: ABF) in October 2015.The company owns a food-focused business with defensive characteristics. But it’s also home to the fast-growing value retail fashion/lifestyle chain Primark, which last year delivered around 60% of overall operating profit. As such, the set-up is unusual. The firm also has great investment appeal for me.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…A highly-rated FTSE 100 shareWhen I looked almost five years ago, the P/E rating was around 32. My conclusion: “At this level, I’m not interested, because a lot of future growth seems already priced-in to the shares.” And ever since, the share has been trading essentially sideways.Then coronavirus hit. And everything has changed. Naturally, the crisis has thumped operations hard, and the company has closed all its Primark stores. In that side of the business, the company isn’t experiencing a mere cash flow crisis, it’s suffering a no-revenue crisis. However, the food operation has carried on trading.Meanwhile, after the stock’s recent plunge, the valuation looks lower than it has done for years. I sense an opportunity. City analysts have pencilled in an earnings decline close to 25% for the current trading year to September. But they also expect earnings to resurge during 2021 by as much as around 36%.With the share price close to 1,888p, as I write, the forward-looking price-to-earnings rating for next year is around 13.5. That’s a vast improvement compared to the high multiples of five years ago. But it’s not the only indicator to like. ABF went into this crisis with a net cash position on the balance sheet.In today’s half-year results report, the company revealed the net cash balance before lease liabilities on 29 February was £801m. However, if you include lease liabilities of £3,552m, net debt at the end of the half-year was £2,751m.A reasonably positive outlookThe trading figures in the report are good, with both the food and the retail divisions performing well. I won’t bore you with the numbers because things have changed so much going forward. But, in summary, the food division continues to trade well and Retail (Primark) is waiting for an end to social-distancing restrictions.Chief executive George Weston offers a detailed explanation about the measures the company has been taking to mitigate the crisis. Indeed, the report is worth a read because it’s perhaps the best account I’ve seen from any company so far.Naturally, the half-year dividend is toast. But I applaud the management team for slashing their own pay too. The executive directors have cut their base pay by 50% and rejected all bonuses relating to the current financial year. On top of that, the non-executive directors have taken a 25% haircut.Looking ahead, the directors expect Sugar, Grocery, Ingredients and Agriculture (the food business) to perform well. And the company has slashed operating costs for Primark by half. However, the timing of the reopening of the stores “remains uncertain” and they expect the process of reopening to be “complex.” Meanwhile, I’m seeing directors displaying integrity and managing the operation well. I reckon the current valuation is an opportunity for me to buy and hold for the long term.

The house is located in a low-rise residential area near Sofia, in the outskirts of Mountain Vitosha. The project was preliminary defined as a contemporary house with rational spaces, very high energy efficiency and indoor climate comfort, fully controlled by a building automation system. Save this picture!© Georgi IvanovMain challenge of the design was the preservation of the two existing old oaks and their integration in the spaces of the house. The trees create a natural micro-climate and function as a living element in the composition. The accent in the design concept was defining the space around them. On one hand the house has to be wide-open towards the tree crowns and the yard and on the other was the desire to emphasize on a certain shell or an envelope – explicit and yet very light and airy…, like a paper. Thus appeared the leading concept – taking the „paper theme” with the inherent property of folding.Save this picture!© Alumina ElitThe factors that determine the shape of the building are the two trees, and one of them is its spatial and functional focus. The living zone at the ground level is a single space U-shape, consisting of kitchen, dining room and living room, fully glazed and open towards the yard.  Save this picture!© Alumina ElitEach half of the glazed tiles is a sliding element, so that when all elements are open in summer, the living area turns into covered terrace towards the yard. At this level are placed also the main entrance and a garage for two cars. At the upper level are situated two bedrooms, master bedroom and a small office. This second level is thoroughly glazed and open towards the trees so that being on it feels like a walk through the crowns on a covered wooden deck.Save this picture!© Alumina ElitPreserving the two existing trees plays a significant role for the thermal balance of the building with so much glazing of the volume. The oaks serve as a natural protection against overheating in summer, contributing to the geothermal cooling heat-pump system which charges the ground with excessive heat, pumped back during the winter season. When the leafs are fallen off in winter the low winter sun penetrates deep in the living spaces, charging the thermal mass in the floor slabs.Save this picture!© Georgi IvanovThe house is very energy efficient, it has low-temperature floor heating/cooling with a geothermal heat pump (deep boreholes), triple gas-filled glazing (Uw=1W/m2K), 20-16cm thick glass-wool thermal insulation on the opaque construction. There is also controlled ventilation system with high level of heat-recovery.Save this picture!© Alumina ElitThe house has a full control building automation system allowing the user to manage from distance all parameters of the building systems as well as drawing statistics of the way the house and its energy is used over time.

The low number of new cases and deaths reported today reflects both a delay in test and death reports over the weekend and the closure of testing sites over the holiday.To date, Public Health has identified 248,821 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 6,030 deaths. Upon further investigation, seven cases reported earlier were not L.A. County residents.“To the families mourning their loved one lost to COVID-19, we wish you healing and peace as we keep you close to our hearts during the days ahead,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “Today, as we celebrate the labor movement and the social and economic achievements of American workers, let’s honor our workers with deliberate actions that protect them from COVID-19. We honor our workers and the meaning of Labor Day by being caring customers, responsible business owners and operators, and organized workers. Responsible business owners and operators fully implement infection control and distancing directives for your business. Caring customers wear face coverings and keep distance from all others. Organized workers practice infection control protocols and report violations immediately to Public Health at 888-700-9995; complaints and concerns can be reported anonymously. Together we protect our workers, slow COVID-19 spread, and save lives.”Public Health offers the following safety tips for businesses:• Allow employees to stay home if they’re feeling sick.• Modify workplaces to ensure distancing among employees and customers as much as possible.• Provide face coverings to all employees.• Ensure regular breaks so that employees can clean their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer after contact with frequently touched surfaces or other people.• Post large, clearly visible signs outlining infection-control measures.• Train employees on Public Health safety measures including recognizing when a customer is out of compliance as well as company strategies on how to remedy the situation.• Consider having extra face coverings available for customers who might not have one.• Encourage contact-less transactions, curbside pick-up, and online purchases.• Report outbreaks as soon as possible. If a workplace has three or more confirmed COVID-19 cases within 14 days, they must call Public Health immediately at: 888-397-3993.Utilizing these tips keep workers and customers safe and healthy and prevents the spread of COVID-19.Of the 25 new deaths reported today, nine people that passed away were over the age of 80 years old, eight people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, seven people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and one person who died was between the ages of 30 and 49 years old.

Water protesters take to Limerick streets again

first_imgLinkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A MAJOR anti-water charges protest will take place in Limerick this Saturday, April 11, just days after the delivery of the first tranche of water bills.Starting at 2pm from City Hall, the ‘We Won’t Pay’ march will be followed by a rally to be addressed by Socialist TD Paul Murphy in St John’s Pavilion on Upper William Street.Limerick Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville, one of the organisers of the march, believes it is a crucial opportunity for people to show that opposition to the charges hasn’t gone away.“We need a large turnout this Saturday to send a message to the government, and also to those they are trying to bully into paying these bills. If the government think they have pulled the wool over our eyes through their ‘introductory offer’, they have another thing coming,” he said.Deputy Murphy commented, “Mass non-payment of the water charges can defeat the government and their attempts at intimidation. There are no penalties for non-payment for 15 months. We will have had a general election by then – if we have established mass non-payment as a fact with 40-50 per cent non-payment it will be the key issue of the election.“It will put so much pressure on all the parties that any government elected will have no choice but to abolish the charge. We nee a strong turnout on Saturday to get that message out, and give people the confidence to hold out,” he added.
