Centrica said interest charges were likely to be over £200m adding net debt stood at £3bn at the end of the third quarter. Based on current estimates of the mix of profits Centrica expects its effective tax rate for the financial year to be around 37 per cent.Last week British Gas said it was increasing household gas prices by seven per cent at the start of December, blaming network charges and environmental obligations as well as a rise in wholesale prices for gas and electricity. Yet in July, it said half-year profits had been boosted by the then low level of wholesale gas prices. British Gas also said it had boosted residential energy accounts by 270,000, this year. Audrey Gallacher, head of energy at Consumer Focus, said: “Customers will be baffled as to why they are being told to pay more when British Gas are on track for such huge profits.” Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Sportech losses widen as revenue drops in H1

first_img Sportech losses widen as revenue drops in H1 Finance Betting technology supplier Sportech’s losses widened five-fold in the first half of 2020 as the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) led to a 38.7% drop in revenue to £20.2m (€22.2m/$26.3m).Of Sportech’s £20.2m in revenue, £13.1m came from the racing and digital division, down 27.4% amid the cancellation of most horse racing worldwide.Racing and digital’s total icluded £12.3m from services provided to partners, with £440,000 from the sale of goods and £395,000 from the Bump 50:50 charitable raffle division.Sportech said that while Bump 50:50’s revenue fell sharply, it “added clients at an unprecedented rate” during the period, including the National Football League’s Tennessee Titans and Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers.A further £7.2m was made through venues, down 52.5%. Services made up £6.4m of this revenue and food and beverage sales £807,000.The Sportech board said the business was on track for a strong 2020 before the effects of Covid-19 were felt.“The group made a good start to H1 2020,” it explained. “However, as previously announced, Covid-19 had a material impact on performance due to the group’s reliance on sporting events to generate revenue.”Costs of sales fell 41.4% to £5.7m, which left a gross profit of £14.4m, a 38.9% decline.Of these costs, £2.1m were from the racing and digital division and £3.7m were from venues. This meant the racing and digital division made a gross profit of £10.9m, and venues £3.5m.Marketing and distribution costs declined by 28.9% to £512,000, leaving the business with a profit of £13.9m after these expenses, down 37.1%.Sportech’s operating costs, however, remained level at £24.2m. Operating costs from racing and digital came to £9.3m and from venues these costs came to £4.5m. Corporate operating costs totalled £1.2m, resulting in a loss in earnings before tax, interest, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of £1.2m.The business paid depreciation and amortisation expenses of £8.7m, plus share option costs of £112,000 and exceptional expenses of £220,000, for an operating loss of £10.3m, up 392.8% from 2019’s loss.After an additional £479,000 in finance costs, up 1.5%, and £13,000 in finance income, down 61.8%, Sportech made a pre-tax loss of £10.7m, more than four times its loss in the first half of 2019.The business paid a further £4,000 in tax, meaning Sportech’s overall loss remained at £10.7m, up 427.3% from the loss it made the year prior.Sportech chief executive Richard McGuire said the challenges of 2020 to date had prompted the business to accelerate the development of new digital products and solutions. “2019 marked a year of operational improvement and a serious motivation to strengthen digital capabilities,” McGuire said. “2020 began well. However, as a business primarily dependent on sporting events taking place, the impact of Covid-19 clearly affected performance.“The group enhanced and diversified its client base further through record new and extended client agreements during the period, providing a realistic prospect for incremental growth in 2021. The board’s focus remains absolute in creating tangible long-term value for shareholders.” However the board added that there was still too much uncertainty to provide any future earnings guidance.“As the group moves through the rest of the financial year, profitability and cash generation will continue to be our key metrics,” it said. “It is difficult to provide meaningful guidance on the future outlook given uncertainty around the timing of when sporting events will return in full and the potential impact of further lockdowns.“However, we remain confident in the quality of the group’s products, our services, our strategy, and in the strength of our balance sheet to help us deliver on these in the medium term.”Last month, Sportech signed a deal with the Racecourse Media Group (RMG), which means the RMG will use Sportech’s software to facilitate tote commingling between racecourses in the UK and Ireland and RMG’s global partners.

Chelsea Apartment / BoND

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityText description provided by the architects. A dark and divided interior in West Chelsea, Manhattan, was transformed into a bright, loft-like space by architects Daniel Rauchwerger and Noam Dvir (BoND). The apartment, which the architecture duo acquired in spring 2017 occupies the third floor of a small 1910 apartment building.Save this picture!© Eric PetschekMeasuring 11.5 by 50 feet total (520 sf), the apartment’s layout is typical to many prewar apartments in New York. Similar to the “Railroad Apartment,” it takes the shape of a long and narrow rectangle that draws light from the building’s front and rear sides. In its original layout, prior to BoND’s intervention, the apartment was divided into three distinct sections: a living room, a bedroom, and a closed-off corridor connecting the two – which housed the kitchen and the bathroom. The architects removed these partitions to create one continuous space, celebrating the apartment’s elongated proportions and maximizing the illusion of depth. The forced perspective is further enhance by a series of inset lighting fixtures that extend linearly from the kitchen into the bedroom, and a wood floor pattern which highlights the length rather the width of the space. The renovation created a clear distinction between the western wall – along which the apartment’s utilities, services and hardware are located – and the eastern wall, which was left blank to provide room for art display.Save this picture!Materials AxonThe renovation makes use of custom design details combined with off-the-shelf products. The fireplace, for example, is an original (and functioning) fixture of the apartment. Its brick core is wrapped by a cut-and-folded sheet made of stainless steel, which BoND commissioned at a local workshop in Chinatown, giving the room a contemporary edge. The metallic effect is echoed by use of a lighting fixture made of brass, which hangs above the dining table. The kitchen features “hacked” IKEA cabinets combined with integrated appliances and a custom marble slab.Save this picture!© Eric PetschekOther projects by BoND – an office for architecture and media – include a seminal exhibition about the architecture and history of national libraries, and residential and retail projects in New York.Save this picture!© Eric PetschekProject gallerySee allShow lessWORKac Selected to Design the New Beirut Museum of ArtArchitecture NewsInVision Launches Free Study Abroad Program for DesignersArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Chelsea, New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

U.S. appeals injunction in TikTok case

first_imgFacebook + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ The Skiff: April 15, 2021 World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution The Skiff Graduation Issue: April 22, 2021 The Skiff: April 1, 2021 Alexandra Lang printOver the last few months, TikTok users have watched the saga of the potential ban on the app unfold, as the fate of the app depends on an agreement between corporations and the White House.The most recent development came Oct. 8 when the White House appealed a judge’s ruling that temporarily blocked the Trump administration from banning the app. The Trump administration claims the app poses a data security risk for U.S. users because its parent company, ByteDance, is based in China.TikTok has stated it would not share such data with the Chinese government, since the data is stored in the U.S. and Singapore.  Users had been hopeful for the app’s future after President Trump seemed agreeable to a deal among TikTok, Walmart and Oracle to purchase it, but the agreement has not been finalized. The U.S. Department of Commerce stated it will “vigorously defend” the ban. Now the ball is in TikTok’s court, as the company has until Nov. 12 to reach a deal with a U.S. corporation to save the app, after which point the government will block internet companies from “carrying the app’s traffic,” according to CNN.KayDianna Davis’s TikTok profile. Screenshot by Alexandra LangThe U.S. is not the only country considering banning TikTok. Pakistan banned the app Oct. 9 for not blocking “immoral and indecent” content, and India instituted a ban of the app due to national security concerns amid a border dispute with China. KayDianna Davis, a TCU student who has over 400,000 followers on TikTok, posted a video on her eponymous account in July addressing the potential ban.“We don’t know anything: if it’s gonna die again, if it’s not, if it’s gonna be resurrected again, if it’s not, we’re all confuzzled,” she said in the video. She also encouraged her fans to follow her on other social media platforms, such as Instagram and YouTube, if the app is ultimately banned. “If TikTok does get taken down again, forever, make sure you go and follow me on all my social media,” she said in the video. “I will continue to post content there.”   The Skiff: April 8, 2021 Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ Twitter ReddIt Facebook Alexandra Lang is a Journalism and Political Science double major from San Antonio, Texas.

The Commerce Department said President Trump’s proposed ban of the apps WeChat and TikTok will go into effect Sunday, Sept. 20, to “safeguard the national security of the United States.” The government said its order, previously announced by Trump in August, will “combat China’s malicious collection of American citizens’ personal data.” (AP Photo/Mark Schiefelbein, File) Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ Previous articleWhat we’re reading: Supreme Court nomination begins, new findings of COVID-19Next articleTCU distributes 3,500 vaccines at annual flu clinic Alexandra Lang RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history last_img read more

Flowers offers insight into GOP domination

first_img Print Article Latest Stories Rotarians Jim Medley, Cot Wallace and Dixie Shehane discussed Alabama politics with political analyst, Steve Flowers, center, following his presentation at the Brundidge Rotary Club Wednesday.The 2010 elections wiped away the last vestige of Democrats and the days of the Blue Dog Democrats are over in the South.That’s the message Steve Flowers, political analyst, delivered to the Brundidge Rotary Club Wednesday.“Tip O’Neill, Speaker of the House, said that ‘All politics is local.’ But that’s no longer true,” Flowers told the Rotarians. “There have been recent significant changes in Southern politics and those changes have been driven from Washington. The November elections were a historical watershed.” Skip Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen Flowers offers insight into GOP domination By The Penny Hoarder “Many of the voters didn’t even know the candidate they were voting for,” he said. “They were just voting a Republican ticket. Alabama is a Red State and I don’t see how that will change.”Flowers also spoke briefly on the ethics bills approved by the Alabama Legislature in the special session call by Gov. Bob Riley in December.He approved of the elimination of the double dipping of educators/legislators and called PACs a “circus” where “you can’t tell who gave to whom.”On Dr. Robert Bentley as governor, Flowers said Bentley is “as good a man as elected to the governorship in a long time.”“He’s as good as his word and he ran for governor for the right reasons,” Flowers said. “Robert Bentley will be good for this time.” Looking back, Flowers said the election of 1876 was the first national change in politics, as the South became a Democratic region.“There has never been an enemy that bestowed such vindictiveness as was shown to the South after the Civil War. The South was held in bondage,” Flowers said. “The election of 1876 removed the shackles of Reconstruction and the South became a Democratic region.”And, Southerners swore they would never be Republicans.
