Trinity Mirror tanks after results disappoint

first_img TRINITY MIRROR saw its share price tumble more than 20 per cent yesterday after it admitted that it will not hit savings targets for the year.The publisher pointed to inflation and the rising cost of newsprint, which will outstrip its cost-cutting measures.Despite tripling its pre-tax profit for 2010 from £42m to £123m, it said its recovery will be “slow and volatile”.Figures for the start of 2011 make grim reading, with national advertising falling nine per cent year-on-year and regional ads dropping 11 per cent.Operating profit at its national titles rose three per cent after margins improved, although revenue fell 6.5 per cent, reflecting declining circulations.Chief executive Sly Bailey said: “Although 2010 proved to be as challenging as expected, we made good progress in rolling out our new operating model, integrating GMG Regional Media and increasing profitability and margin whilst managing extremely volatile revenue trends throughout the year”.The stock closed down 21.7 per cent yesterday at 66p.

PointsBet targets US growth as share issue concludes

first_img Topics: Finance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Oceania Australia PointsBet has raised more than AUD$85m (£45.5m/€52.7m/USD$58.8m) from its share issue as it seeks expansion in the US market.The bookmaker, which has operations in Australia and the US, saw its share price rise today as it recommenced trading on Sydney’s Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) after the announcement just last week that it was seeking to raise AUD$122.1m through a fully underwritten capital raising comprising an institutional placement and entitlement offer.PointsBet, which has licences in New Jersey and Iowa, said there was strong support from new and existing shareholders who raised $60m at $3.60 per share, 12.5% above the entitlement offer price of $3.20. It offered a 1 for 6 fully underwritten pro rata accelerated renounceable entitlement offer with retail rights trading.The institutional entitlement offer raised approximately $25.9m, which was short of its $60m target. In total it raised $85.9m.PointsBet said the funds will be used to support marketing and client acquisition, technology and product development and balance sheet flexibility. It will also assist US business development including market access and government licensing fees and sportsbook fitout costs.Last week PointsBet reported a 138% year-on-year rise in turnover during the first quarter, primarily due to its launch and subsequent expansion in the US.Turnover for the three months to 30 September 2019 amounted to USD$235.8m, representing a significant increase on $99.1m in the corresponding period last year. Higher spending among customers also pushed net revenue for the quarter up 138% on a year-on-year basis from $5.0m to $11.8m, according the operator’s revenue update.For its core Australian business, turnover rose 66% to USD$164.4m, with net win more than doubling to $12.6m.PointsBet raised A$75m after listing its shares on the ASX in July 2019. It sold a total of 37.5m shares at an issue price of AUD$2 each.By the close of trading today (4 November) its shares were worth $4.30 compared to $4.04 before the announcement of the share issue last week.

Multiple players suspended following Perpignan and Bayonne mass brawl

first_imgWednesday Mar 23, 2011 Multiple players suspended following Perpignan and Bayonne mass brawl Five players have picked up suspensions for their part in a Top 14 mass brawl between Perpignan and Bayonne a few weeks back. Each club has been fined thousands of Euros for the fight, which included punches thrown after the final whistle at the Stade Aime Gira.Remy Martin, Gregory Le Corvec, David Marty, and Aretz Iguiniz will all be relegated to the stands for the next month, following a decision from the LNR earlier tonight to suspend all give of them after they each were found to have thrown multiple punches.It was a typically fierce tempered encounter between the two sides, as visitors Bayonne took to the pitch amidst a chorus of booing, perhaps setting the tone for what would be an occasion marred by violence.Perpignan won the match 25-19, but yellow cards were dished out at regular intervals, with the worst of the fights taking place after the final whistle, with Le Corvec walking up to Martin and having a full go.He will be out until April 22nd, while Martys case will be reclassified on April 12th. Bayonne flanker Jean-Jo Marmouyet also appears to have been suspended, with the same punishment as Marty. Aretz Iguiniz has been suspended for twenty days.Perpignan meanwhile have been fined 7 000 euros, while Bayonne were handed a 12 000 euros fine, with the 5000 extra based on them being repeat offenders. :: Related Posts :: Jamie Cudmore gets 40 day ban for punch on Gregory Le Corvec Time: 05:10ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Donate unwanted Christmas presents to charity, urges Barnardo’s

first_img Children’s charity Barnardo’s is urging the British public to make the most of any unwanted Christmas presents they receive this year by donating them to charity.The scale of the missed opportunity for Barnardo’s and other charities is considerable. An online poll of 4,459 people by YouGov for the children’s charity found that 44% of people in the UK throw away or forget about an unsuitable gift. More than a third of those questioned (38%) simply put unsuitable presents in a cupboard and forget about them.Barnardo’s points out that it could sell these unwanted gifts via its national network of 720 shops to help vulnerable children and young people.Fortunately plenty of people say that they do hand on their unwanted gifts. One in 10 sell them online and 38% do give them to a charity shop.Unfortunately 12% of those surveyed admit that they have thrown away unwanted gifts.Unwanted Christmas presents can still do good if donated to charity, argues Barnardo’sLeast wanted presents?For the second year running’s Barnardo’s asked what people were least keen to receive at Christmas. The top results were:selfie stick (45%) (number one in last year’s poll too)musical socks (43%)bathroom scales (34%)set of saucepans (26%)animal slippers (26%)Worst gift givers?The survey also found that the worst relatives or friends at buying appropriate gifts were: Advertisement  198 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 Tagged with: christmas Donated goods Research / statistics Trading in-laws (8%)mother (6%)siblings (6%)father (5%)Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan, said:“We all receive the occasional present that may not be our cup of tea.

Over three weeks in March, the campaign’s funder FOR Cardiff trialed a contactless donation point on the Hayes in the city, enabling people to donate £2 day and night with the tap of a card.In addition to the contactless technology, people have also been able to give to the campaign via text to donate.The trial initiative received 502 donations and following the successful response, FOR Cardiff is considering rolling out further technology later in the year.Adrian Field, Executive Director of FOR Cardiff, the business improvement district for the city, said:“We are delighted to see that the trial of this type of giving has been so well received in Cardiff. It is imperative to us that we invest in the longevity of the campaign. We are looking to work with local businesses to facilitate other contactless pay points and methods of alternative giving around the city.”Give DIFFerently was launched in November 2017 to encourage people in the city to think differently about how they give to those who are begging, homeless or at risk of homelessness.Managed by the Community Foundation in Wales, voluntary and third sector organisations can apply for grants of between £250 and £750. These will be allocated to help individuals who need it the most with 10% of the fund ring-fenced for organisations working with those at risk of Adverse Childhood Experiences.Main image: Cardiff Blue’s Sam Warburton donating via contactless to Give DIFFerently.
