Share TONY SHEPARD | CHARLES STANLEYIt seems to be going well for BP, with this sale following on nicely from the Apache deal. BP offloads non-core assets regularly, so has had some practice. TNK would like to expand too, so it’s a good move for it.MARK PRIEST | ETX CAPITALBP doesn’t particularly want to be making these sales, but it doesn’t have much choice. On the other hand, the company doesn’t seem in as much trouble as it did a few months ago, and it is managing to raise cash.GREG SMITH | FAT PROPHETSBy selling to TNK-BP, BP still has an interest in the assets it has offloaded. It doesn’t feel like it has sold the crown jewels of the company just yet, and BP is getting fair prices without a sense of urgency in the deals.

Mouchel says no to £119m takeover bid

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Wednesday 22 December 2010 7:14 pm SUPPORT services group Mouchel has rebuffed a £119m takeover approach from building company Costain.Mouchel, which was the target of an unsuccessful takeover attempt by former rival VT Group last year, said Costain’s 105.8p per share proposal significantly undervalued the business.Costain, which made its approach on 2 December, said Mouchel rejected the all-share offer on 6 December and there were currently no discussions taking place between the pair.Costain chairman David Allvey said he believed there was a “compelling strategic rationale” behind combining the two businesses.He said the deal would create value for both companies’ shareholders by bringing together two of the UK’s premium brands in consulting, construction and care, which would have a combined order book of more than £4bn.He said the deal would create significant savings, would improve earnings and dividend income and would provide the potential for a re-rating of the combined business.Mouchel’s shares rose 23.5p to 96.5p while Costain’s stock dropped by a penny to 205p.Mouchel, whose operations range from highway maintenance to consulting for local authorities, has been hit hard by government cutbacks. Earlier this month it embarked upon a strategic review of its business.Rival support services firm VT Group, which is now part of defence group Babcock, tried to buy Mouchel last year before dropping its interest to try to fight Babcock’s takeover bid.Costain is boosting consultancy and maintenance operations alongside building and engineering.At the end of June, 14 per cent of its £2.5bn order book was in operations and maintenance. Under the terms of the deal, Mouchel shareholders would own about 48 per cent of the combined group.

Gambling Commission issues warning over festive lotteries

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter CSR AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Legal & compliance Lottery Social responsibility CSR Tags: Charitable Gaming The GB Gambling Commission has warned organisations running charity lottery games over the Christmas period to ensure they are operating lawfully in order to avoid any potential legal action.The regulatory body said many lotteries and related games including raffles and tombolas are staged during the festive season, but all are subject to certain laws.Organisations running these games must, according to the Commission, only do so for charitable purposes and not for private gain.The organisation that sells tickets prior to a lottery, raffle or tombola, or away from the place where the event is being held, will need to secure a licence from the Commission or register with their local authority.The Commission said there are limits as to how much organisations can spend on ticket sales for a single prize, but there are no limits on donated prizes. All tickets must cost the same, unless they are run at a specific event, which would mean they are classed as incidental lotteries.For businesses running a lottery for their customers, they cannot do so for profit or good causes. All money collected from tickets sales for such a draw must be spent on prizes or expenses.In addition, the Commisison said organisaitons cannot roll over unallocated or unclaimed prizes to another lottery unless they are running a lottery under a Commission licence or local authority registration.Image: Andrew Skudder Gambling Commission issues warning over festive lotteries 11th November 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address The GB Gambling Commission has warned organisations running charity lottery games over the Christmas period to ensure they are operating lawfully in order to avoid any potential legal action.last_img read more

Refusal to free two journalists signals end of rule of law in Turkey

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe News January 15, 2018 Refusal to free two journalists signals end of rule of law in Turkey Turkey: implement Constitutional Court decision to free journalists The journalists Şahin Alpay and Mehmet Altan are still in prison, four days after Turkey’s constitutional court ordered their release. Istanbul courts refused to free them again today, continuing to defy the country’s highest court.In terms of straying from the rule of law, Turkey is now deep into uncharted terrain. Today was the fifth time that lower courts used one pretext or another to defy the ruling that the constitutional court issued on 11 January.“The imprisonment of Şahin Alpay and Mehmet Altan was already shocking and now it is illegal,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “If they are not freed very soon, it will be clear that no vestige of the rule of law remains in Turkey. We call on the European Court of Human Rights to take note. The European Court appears more than ever to be the only recourse available to Turkey’s imprisoned journalists.”Alpay was arrested in July 2016, Altan two month later. In separate cases, both are facing possible life sentences on charges of “trying to overthrow the government” and links with “terrorist organizations.”Many other journalists, including Deniz Yücel, Ahmet Şık, Nazlı Ilıcak and Ahmet Turan Alkan, are also being detained unjustly in Turkey.For more information about this case see:- RSF’s reaction to the constitutional court ruling- The reaction of RSF and seven other NGOs to the initial refusals to execute the ruling RSF_en RSF_EECA to go further Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Turkey Receive email alerts Organisation News Turkey’s constitutional court orders release of two journalists TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe News January 11, 2018 Find out more January 12, 2018 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News Reporters Without Borders today condemned a threat by the Zimbabwean government’s Media and Information Commission (MIC) to suspend or close a new independent newspaper, the Weekly Times, just a few days after its first issue on account of its alleged violation of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA) and its overly “political” news coverage.”The MIC and information minister Jonathan Moyo continue to crack down on Zimbabwe’s independent media with full impunity in the runup to legislative elections in March,” the press freedom organisation said.”The fact that the Weekly Times was founded with little apparent trouble might have led one to assume the Zimbabwean government was going to change its behaviour toward the independent press, but these closure threats barely a week after the first issue show that it is as determined as ever to repress freedoms,” Reporters Without Borders added.Just days after its first issue appeared on 2 January, the Weekly Times received an official communique from MIC chairman Tafataona Mahoso accusing its management of deceiving the commission as to its “true intentions.”He said the Weekly Times had betrayed a “sectarian” bias, especially in its treatment of President Robert Mugabe, and threatened to either suspend or close the newspaper altogether for failing to respect the terms under which it was allowed to appear. The Weekly Times obtained authorisation to publish last September.Four days before the MIC’s letter arrived, chief executive officer Godfrey Ncube and editor Gibbs Dube were interrogated by police for several hours about the newspaper’s operations.The first issue included an interview with Bulawayo bishop Pius Ncube condemning Mugabe’s failure to repent for the massacres of 20,000 civilians in Gukurahundi in the 1980s. It also referred to a secret meeting organised by Moyo at the end of last year, called the “Tsholotsho Declaration,” that was reportedly aimed at preventing Joyce Mujuru from being appointed vice-president of the ruling Zanu-PF party.In his weekly column in The Herald newspaper on 8 January, Moyo warned that he would like to examine the alleged links between the Weekly Times and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

New Sensis Research Highlights Multicultural Boomer Habits

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Facebook Local NewsBusinesscenter_img TAGS  Previous articleNomad Foods to Present at 2021 CAGNY Virtual ConferenceNext articleTravelers Named a 2021 Military Friendly® Company Digital AIM Web Support Twitter LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– One of the most important generations in American history — baby boomers — is tired. That’s according to the first installment of an extensive research study conducted by the integrated cross-cultural marketing agency Sensis. Baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, have been largely ignored by marketers preoccupied with millennials and Generation Z. But boomers control an estimated $2.6 trillion in spending power. Tapping that well requires a nuanced, multicultural approach. “We have a successful track record of conducting cross-cultural research going back a decade with the Hispanic Persona Project,” President and Chief Strategy Officer José Villa said. “Boomers have never been examined from a multicultural standpoint before now. We are able to capture insights no one else has because we’re not looking at them like a monolith.” In the first of six installments, boomers revealed that the pandemic has been exhausting. Their lives have been upended with adult children forced to move home, sometimes bringing their children. It has put a strain on families. In the July 2020 survey, 44% of boomers said they enjoyed spending time with their kids, down 8% from 52% in November 2019. Whites, Blacks and Asians expressed similar rates of familial fatigue while 48% of Hispanics reported enjoying their kids’ company. Boomers also reported being eager to travel farther from home, the longer they sheltered. Only 23% of boomers said they enjoyed staying close to home while vacationing in 2020, compared to nearly 34% of boomers in 2019. Since so much of their lives have been relocated to screens, boomers are now facing serious social media fatigue. Only 37% of boomers said they were excited about connecting with family and friends over social media in 2020, compared with 50% in 2019. Future installment topics and release dates: Exercise / health — March 2021Home & family — May 2021Buying behavior / planned purchases / vehicles — July 2021Media & technology attitudes — September 2021Retirement planning & career — October 2021 Sensis is hosting a webinar on the Boomer Cultures Report Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. PST.
