The tie-up means that Novartis will have exclusive rights to sell GW’s Sativex drug in Australia and New Zealand, plus across parts of Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Novartis will pay GW $5m (£3.06m) upfront, followed by a series of additional payments totalling $28.75m based on milestones under the terms of the deal.Already licensed for treatment in the UK, Spain, Canada and New Zealand, Sativex is awaiting approval in several European countries, with licences expected to be granted later this year. The drug is used to treat the muscle spasms and stiffness common among MS sufferers, and has been developed from active ‘cannabinoid’ ingredients found in the Cannabis Sativa plant.Shares in GW rose more than 12 per cent following the deal announcement, valuing the company at £141.5m.“Novartis has emerged at the forefront of the next generation of MS treatments, and is therefore ideally positioned to market Sativex as a symptomatic treatment alongside their disease modifying treatment,” GW’s managing director Justin Gover said. GW specialises in cannabis-based medicines, and reported a pre-tax profit of £4.6m for 2010. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Charity Income Spotlight report highlights continued growth in sector

first_img Tagged with: Finance Research / statistics Melanie May | 6 May 2016 | News Growth continued in the charity sector during 2015/16, but with an increasing divide between large and small organisations, according to this year’s Charity Financials’ Charity Income Spotlight Report.The report reveals that income reached £71.7bn: a 5.3-point growth in the index and a slight slowdown from the 2014/15 period’s 6.1-point increase. However, while charities in the £50m+ income bands grew their incomes by 11.5 points over the last year, charities in the £1m-£5m band only managed an increase of 1.7 points.Main income streamsThe four main income streams had an almost equal part to play in 2015/16’s growth: voluntary income was the best performer, up 6.7 points in the last year, while investment, trading and charitable activities income also all rose by more than 5.3 points.The amount generated by charitable activities totalled £33.8bn and was responsible for 53% of income overall: a decrease of just 2% since 2013, despite fears about a reduction in statutory funding sources.The recent negative media coverage of the sector also seems yet to have an effect on voluntary income. The total amount raised in this stream was £18.6bn – an increase of 5.9 index points on last year, and accounting for 29% of income, down just 1% over the last three years.Fundraising trading income reached £6.1bn with the report suggesting that this could be the result of charities looking to diversify their income streams and counter potential negative reactions to particular fundraising techniques. Income from this source, which includes charity shops, now contributes 10% of overall income – a growth of 3% since 2013. Investment income contributed £3bn in 2015-16: five per cent of the total income.Risers and fallersThe top three largest charities by income remain the same as the previous year: Lloyds Register Foundation, The British Council, and The Arts Council of England. Nuffield Health and Save the Children International both climb one place to fourth and fifth place respectively.Of the current top 20 charities by income, five have dropped at least one place from their previous rank: Cancer Research UK which fell from fourth to sixth place; Cardiff University; Barnardos; CITB and The Girls’ Day School Trust. Cardiff University and Barnardo’s saw a slowdown in growth while with the remaining three, incomes fell. However, in the cases of Cancer Research UK and The Girls’ Day School Trust, this was a result of previous windfall years where income had increased largely through property sales, and in Cancer Research UK’s case, the closure of its pension scheme.Motability, Oasis Charitable Trust, and The British Council saw the biggest increases in income. Motability saw an increase of an increase of 516%: the result of the £150m payment it received to deliver the one-off transitional package of support for disabled people who will no longer be eligible for the Motability Scheme. The Oasis Charitable Trust entered the top 20 through a 69.5% increase in income, taking the charity from £160.3m to £271.7m.The full report can be downloaded from the Charity Financials site.

Gen Z & Millennials could be Christmas’s biggest givers

first_imgOnline givingOnline donations by the public continued to rise, to 42% of donations from 37% during the first lockdown. One of the drivers of this was a rise in digital donations from 40-54 year olds.A third of people however, cannot remember the name of the charity they last donated to online. Gen Z had the worst level of recall, with 42% unable to remember which charity they donated to.The reasons behind the poor charity name recall fell into a few different areas. Firstly, just under a third stated they do things too quickly online to remember the charities’ name. Secondly, more than a third of people (34%) are only really interested in the cause, not the charity itself. Nearly half (46%) state that their poor brand recall is down to the branding of charities either not being distinctive enough from other charities or being overwhelmed by a giving platform’s brand.Commenting on the research, Chester Mojay-Sinclare, Enthuse Founder and CEO, said:“The most important statistic in this report is that 37% of the public are viewing charities more favourably than three months ago. The UK is seeing the sector’s heroic work first hand, and this is building trust and support. It is this that is leading to the amount of people looking to donate over the Christmas period, as the public increasingly understands the importance of the role charities will play in holding society together during this time. While the public is very willing to donate, charities need to be mindful of the issues of brand recall and donors opting out of communications.”Enthuse surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,042 members of the UK public in October for the report, with additional data from its platform from July to October 2020 also included. Support for causesThe types of charity the public is donating to is shifting too. The last three months saw a spike in support for mental health charities up from 15% to 25% of the public donating.  There were also rises in support for vulnerable groups. Support for children’s charities rose from 21% to 26% and organisations focused on helping older people saw an increase from 10% to 14% of the public donating to them. Animal charities also saw a rise from 29% to 34%, seeing it overtake the NHS and public health as the top sector. Giving plansIt found that three quarters of Gen Z (74%) and Millennials (76%) are planning on donating to charity during this year’s Christmas period. They could also be the most generous donors over the period, with Millennials stating they’ll give as much as £68, and Gen Z planning to donate up to £59. This compares to an average of £51 for the public as a whole.However, despite this, these age groups are also the least committed to giving, according to the research, with less than a third very committed to donating. In contrast, among the over 65s, 40% are very committed to giving with 65% in total are likely to donate.The research also shows that since the end of the initial lockdown, more than two thirds of the public (69%) say they have made a donation. This is an increase on the 59% figure reported by Enthuse data for the first lockdown period. Just under half (47%) of donors have also given to multiple charities. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Public sentiment towards charitiesThere has also been a rise in public sentiment towards charities, according to Enthuse’s research. Over the last three months, nearly two fifths (37%) said they were feeling more positive towards charities and the work they do, up from 28% in the last quarter. This compared to just 5% who said they felt less positive about charities. However, the average amount per individual donation has dropped 9% compared to the same period last year (July-October). Public support for charities is growing while the younger generations could be the most generous this Christmas in terms of giving to charity, research by donations, fundraising and events platform Enthuse has found.The second edition of Enthuse’s quarterly Donor Pulse report explores changing habits and attitudes to charities, fundraising and donating since the end of the first lockdown, and looks forward to Christmas and beyond.  428 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4center_img Advertisement Tagged with: Individual giving Research / statistics Gen Z & Millennials could be Christmas’s biggest givers Melanie May | 17 November 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Indiana Soybeans 52% Harvested, Corn 34% Harvested

first_img SHARE By USDA Communications – Oct 13, 2020 SHARE Indiana Soybeans 52% Harvested, Corn 34% Harvested Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Soybeans 52% Harvested, Corn 34% Harvested Indiana soybeans are 52% harvested, behind the national pace of 61%. Indiana corn is 34% harvested, also behind the national pace of 41%.Dry weather returned last week with much of the State seeing very little, if any, rainfall, according to USDA NASS, Great Lakes Regional Field Office. The northern, central, and southern parts of the State all saw precipitation levels well below normal. Soil moisture levels decreased significantly from the previous week, with 75 percent of topsoil moisture reported as short or very short.The average temperature for the week was 60.7 degrees Fahrenheit, 4.9 degrees above normal for the State. The amount of rainfall varied from none to 0.50 inches over the week. The statewide average precipitation was 0.08 inches. There were 6.7 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending October 11.The unusually dry conditions allowed farmers to make significant progress with corn and soybean harvests and helped push the later planted crops into maturity. The dry weather, however, also caused concern for winter wheat emergence and fall forage conditions. While winter wheat planted was ahead of the five- year average, the lack of moisture kept winter wheat emergence behind schedule. Pasture conditions also declined from the previous week, with reports of some producers feeding hay earlier than normal. Other activities for the week included hauling grain, testing crop moisture content, planting cover crops, and taking soil samples. Previous articleGov.
