BP cancels its bonuses after Gulf disaster

first_img whatsapp BP scaled back its staff pay-outs in light of the Gulf of Mexico disaster last year, according to its annual report released yesterday. Chief executive Bob Dudley, who took the top job in October after Tony Hayward stepped down, has not received a performance bonus following the Gulf spill, which killed 11 people and could cost BP up to $40bn.Chief financial officer Byron Grote will get 30 per cent of his bonus, or $207,000, to reflect strong performance in parts of the company not linked to the Gulf spill. Refining and marketing chief Iain Conn also got a £104,000 bonus.“While the tragedy of lost lives and environmental damage remains foremost in everyone’s minds, the committee also wished to fairly acknowledge the good business results in many parts of BP, delivered in the most testing of times,” said remuneration chairman DeAnne Julius in the report. Hayward did not receive a performance bonus but was paid £1.08m on leaving BP – a years’ salary plus £30,000. The firm trimmed its staff numbers by 600 to 79,700 during the year as part of a long-term programme. It said it dismissed 552 workers for breaking its code of conduct last year, up from 524 in 2009. Excluding the Gulf disaster, BP’s spill rate rose 44 per cent by volume to 1.7m litres in 2010. The number of oil spills of one barrel or more rose from 234 to 261 during the year. The firm said in its report that it hopes to eventually restart operations in the Gulf of Mexico. The deepwater drilling ban in the Gulf helped pull production volumes down four per cent to 3.82m barrels per day, the company added. BP shares closed 1.4 per cent higher at 491.5p yesterday.

Football’s dominance to wane by next World Cup

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 6th July 2018 | By Joanne Christie Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Finance Football is set to account for a whopping 63.1% of all sports betting this year thanks to the World Cup, but things will be different by the time the next one rolls around, according to H2 Gambling Capital.The leading gambling data business says the biggest changes in the market in the next four years will come from developments in China and the US.“The FIFA World Cup is the biggest single event for all operators at 5.0% of all global sports betting,  but the make-up of the market is set to change markedly between the 2018 to 2022 tournaments.“The US sports betting effect and the upswing you get in Chinese Sports Lottery betting during the event will see China become the largest World Cup betting market by Qatar 2022,” says David Henwood, co-director at H2.As the below dashboard shows, China has already overtaken the UK in terms of the total size of its sports betting market, but the US is set for strong growth following the repeal of PASPA, which means individual states can legalise sports betting.The US market is expected to be huge, but given football is less popular in the US than in Europe — H2 predicts it will account for only about 5-6% of the US regulated market — the addition of US gross win to the global pie will reduce football’s share of the market.“The interesting trend to watch going forward will be the undoubted growth in US sports (American football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey), already at 11% of the global pie in 2018, and set to eat further into football’s dominance over the next four years,” says Henwood.China’s impact on the market will be somewhat different – H2 says while mobile and in-play betting are set to become stronger on a global basis, the growth in China Sports Lottery betting will offset some of this growth as typically its bets are placed pre-match and using land-based facilities.Nonetheless, Henwood says in terms of the World Cup specifically, “76% of all Russia 2018 betting will be on mobile, growing to some 89% by Qatar 2022”.H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team.

FTSE investing: International Consolidated Airlines vs Carnival shares. Would I buy?

first_img Tezcan Gecgil, PhD | Monday, 27th April, 2020 | More on: CCL EZJ I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images In 2020, investing in FTSE 100 travel and airline stocks has meant capital loss for shareholders. Today I’m taking a look at the share prices of cruise operator Carnival (LSE: CCL) and International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) (the owner of British Airways and Iberia) to see how £1,000 invested in each would have fared over the past five years. Year-to-date (YTD), the stocks are down about 76% and 64% respectively, which means the shares are clearly in bear market territory. 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…Reading the numbersUnder each company name below, you can see how the price has changed over the past five years and what this change equates to in terms of the compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Then, I’ve shown how £1,000 would have fared over five years.Past share prices are for late April 2015. Current ones are closing prices on 24 April. I haven’t factored-in any brokerage commissions or taxes.Please note that until recently, both FTSE 100 firms paid regular dividends. The calculation below doesn’t take into consideration the dividends or reinvesting that income.Given the uncertainty the industry is facing, in late March Carnival axed its dividend. Then in April, IAG took a similar step. CFO Stephen Gunning said the board was withdrawing the proposal to pay a final dividend of €0.17 per share.CarnivalThe share price has fallen from 3,008p to 849.20p, although on 2 January 2020, CCL shares were around 3,648p. It means CAGR of -22.35% so £1,000 would have decreased to about £282.On 2 April, Carnival stock price hit a 52-week low of 581p. It was indeed an all-time low for the shares. Could it be that the City is having doubts about the potential long-term survival of the cruise operator? The company is expected to release its Q2 earnings in late June.International Consolidated AirlinesThe share price has fallen from 557p to 217.7p, but on 2 January 2020, IAG shares were around 636p. That’s a CAGR of -17.13% and means £1,000 would have decreased to about £390.In April so far, the stock is up about 4.5%. And the airline is expected to report Q2 2020 earnings on 7 May. So should you invest in travel stocks now?As the numbers above show, both CCL and IAG  shares have had a downward and difficult trajectory. Shareholders would have lost considerable capital in either one over the past five years. But in fact, the steep losses occurred in 2020. Thus if we had done a similar calculation in early January, the results would have looked a lot different.So what does this mean for these two travel giants’ investment prospects? According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global economy will contract 3% in 2020. Yet in 2021, the IMF forecasts robust growth. Stock prices generally reflect expectations of future profits. If you agree that these grey clouds may dissipate in the coming months, it may also be time to start investing in FTSE 100 travel and airline stocks.Today, if I had to choose between Carnival and International Consolidated Airlines stocks, I would go for IAG.However, given the current lockdown and travel restrictions, I believe the light at the end of the tunnel for the industry may still be some time away away. Also as their dividends are now suspended, I do not expect passive income seekers to return to either stocks.Even with their recovery potential, I think there may be better bargains in the FTSE 100.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Over the course of several years and on many travels, the clients – a young couple with a keen interest in architecture – had formed specific ideas and mental images of what their home was to be like.  Light in the form of daylight and artificial lighting played a central role in their considerations. Specifics were provided for the room plan, the exact relationship of rooms, the view, even a floor plan concept was produced – all infused with particular ideas in mind regarding the effects of daylight and artificial lighting both inside the home and in outdoor areas. The light in their vision became the fourth dimension of architecture. To help the process, the clients had compiled several hundreds of highly atmospheric photos and detailed descriptions of how day-to-day situations in their future home were to be experienced. Rather than a prestigious character, the idea was to follow the leitmotif of a modern, relaxed and unpretentious bungalow in the country. After a long and intensive search, they eventually found a property in an exposed position that met all the requirements in terms of sunlight and stunning view.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerWhat was missing to start up the project was an architectural concept that would unify these details and requirements in a single design and forge a link to the grounds they had found.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerIn search for the right architect, it was the report on architectural firm Heiderich Architekten presented on German TV channel WDR to mark the Day of Architecture 2009 along with an afternoon in the firm’s premises in Lünen that made the team around Martin Heiderich a favourite for the task at hand. Even the initial talks showed a love of detail both on the part of the architect and the clients that would make for intensive interaction and a dynamic exchange throughout the project with many hours spent discussing details.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerIt proved a great convenience here that Martin Heiderich, armed with some 1,000 study designs, had gathered extensive experience while working under Prof. Bofinger at the University of Dortmund in pinpointing the intentions of a design and together with the originator develop these into a coherent building without taking the lead himself or questioning the concept in principle. Design in the team, but without compromises.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe result of this collaboration is a highly individual building concept which reflects all parties involved. An additive structural composition set on a stone foundation with a folded champagne-coloured metal plate that enfolds a semitransparent wooden cuboid and balances above the glass-clad living area.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerFurther planning was easy as most decisions consistently followed this concept. The strictly formalistic rules of the structural composition and the penchant for carefully selected materials and internals remind of buildings from the 60s and the early 70s.  The main materials boil down to oak, brick, greywacke and aluminium. Much was allowed in terms of colours, except for one – grey.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe entrance area leads off to the left and right to a basement substitute and utility room on the one side and, on the other, to the work area. The office has its own open-air section in the passage from the driveway through to the garden. Following straight ahead from the entrance are the kitchen and the living and dining area as a fluent room with stairs leading to the upper floor positioned as a zoning element by day and a light sculpture by night. The upstairs boasts a bedroom with phenomenal view of the Ruhr area, a dressing room and a spacious bathroom.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe grounds include terraces for different times of day and seasons and dovetail the building with the property. Large sliding doors remove the separation of interior and exterior, a roofed sitting area outside complements the room plan. A natural pool right outside the living area features oak timber decking.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe bricks for the ground floor come from the Münsterland and were chosen for their brown tone and minute golden inclusions as a result of the firing process. The windows are made of oak with an aluminium frame on the outside in the anodically oxidised shade C34. The aluminium cladding of the upper floor in the anodically oxidised shade C32 is divided into grid segments of 1.75m. The wooden panelling of the upper floor is made of thermally treated poplar. The outside facilities are defined by simple, natural-finish concrete surfaces and a basic horizontal design.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerFloors and selected furniture are of cured German oak design. The greywacke for all heavily used floor and wall surfaces in the entrance section and in wet areas hails from the nearby Oberbergisches Land. Other built-in components are predominantly coated in mat white paint. Save this picture!© Thomas MayerAll furniture except for chairs and a table were custom-made specifically for this home. The kitchen section as a folding unit through a small library and on to the office becomes a central defining element.Early in the planning stage, a cost framework was developed to budget precisely for all aspects from the purchase of the property to the furnishings and fittings. Before the start of construction, more than 80% of the contract work sections had been put out to tender, negotiated and contracted out. Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSpecial focus in the building is given to the lighting. Daylight, on the one hand – plentiful and controlled using shading systems. On the other hand, artificial lighting both for the interior and the exterior. Because of the great significance of light as a medium for the clients, a lighting architecture concept was developed right at the start together with the architecture to define the building’s daytime and nocturnal architecture. The lighting concept was devised and implemented by lighting design specialists LIGHT DESIGN ENGINEERING KOBER. It was based on the wishes of the clients for a balanced interplay of bright living spaces opening up towards the garden and more shaded private quarters on the upper floor that remain sheltered from view. The result is a building clearly divided into two sections by the incident daylight. Suffused with daylight transferred into the interior through fully glazed walls on three sides, the open living and dining area is dovetailed level with the exterior by 3.50m wide, double-aspect sliding doors that open at right angles under a canopy roof projecting far out into the garden. The resulting areas of sunlight and shade underneath these roofs form a dialogue between interior and exterior, between living space and garden. The depth of the canopy roof facing south resulted from an exact sun study. Between 1 April and 1 September, the south sun is shaded by the canopy roof, whereas in the colder months of the year the lower lying sun bathes the interior in light, not only for added warmth but also lifting the mood.  The front of the canopy roof hides an awning behind the facade cladding to lend the terrace an ambiance that invites to linger. The lower building section stands in stark contrast to the introverted and intimate upper floor. The wood panelling of the cladding here extend right across the windows to provide an optically homogenous surface on the outside and preventing the view inside, while the light filters through the wood as a warming element producing a playful effect of light and shadow. This leaves cool places to withdraw in summer, while in winter the atmosphere reminds of a ski lodge. Only the bedroom sits like an eyrie above the tree tops and offers a stunning view far across the region without permitting a look inside.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe artificial lighting concept takes up these contrasting atmospheres on ground and upper floor at different times of day and in the various seasons and interprets these into a nocturnal architecture that in turn reflects its occupants and their lifestyle. As the furniture, the light inside the house is equally “custom-made”. The luminaire housings were sealed in the shell’s concrete ceiling only once the sofa had been defined and the perfect postion had been found for the dining room table. The success of the lighting concept is based on an extensive involvement of the clients in the planning process and an intensive exchange between all involved. Key criteria for the lighting are visual comfort, natural light colours and excellent colour rendering, but also flexible switching and dimming. The recessed luminaires mounted flush with the ceiling recede into the background and are free of glare and spill light to ensure highly efficient directed light. The significant component of homogenous vertical illuminance on the few wall surfaces makes these perceivable as spatial borders and provides a calming effect for the eye. Nowhere at any point are the straight lines of the architecture broken by disruptive beams of light. The ambient lighting is complemented in places by accent lighting focused on the furniture and determined by use. Work areas in the kitchen are illuminated by downlights, the sofa is lit by directional luminaires with oval outline lens, leaving the beam invisible and instead, illuminating the sofa precisely like a sculpture in the room. The luminaires are positioned to emit their beams at an angle of 15° onto the sofa providing perfect visual conditions for reading. Furthermore, the clients already knew in the early planning stages which places were to be given special accents delivered by narrow beams of light. A bowl of oranges on the kitchen counter, for instance, has a defined place, as does a niche in the living room which stands out in the light from the slight glow of the brick wall. This niche also features a candle fireplace. The idea for this unusual and highly atmospheric room element was a souvenir which the clients brought home from their travels to Venice – there as here in their new home, it soon became a central place of relaxation. Save this picture!© Thomas MayerCombining uniform wallwashing with selected accentuation creates hierarchies of perception and provides compelling visual perspectives. This is complemented by selected places for object luminaires that add warm coloured accents. The main lighting object, however, is the staircase positioned as a central core between the living and the dining area; it appears to be self-illuminating. With a height of up to six metres, the room is scenically illuminated using RGBW LED lens wallwashers to utilise the full colour spectrum of light. Simulating the appearance of a skylight during the day, sunlight seems to pour in between the two shear walls at night long after the sun has actually set. Even more spectacular colours than moonlight and ice age atmosphere are possible, of course, the strength of the luminaires, however, lies in their subtle discreetness through the play of cold and warm light throughout the course of the day to further enhance the relaxed atmosphere in the home. Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe lighting concept for the outdoor area follows along the same principle as applied inside. The illumination of vertical structures helps to define exterior spaces at night. The uniform illumination of the tree surfaces on the east side of the property creates the optical illusion of a spatial border in the dark and directs attention to the garden. Vertical illuminance in the outdoor area eliminates reflections in the windows allowing the eyes to wander far into the distance. The interior is extended, dark nightmares are dispelled. This effect is further enhanced by the recessed luminaires in the canopy roof, as their asymmetrical light distribution forms a line of light around the glass structure giving it the appearance of floating on a carpet of light. Excellent glare control and the slight angling of the lamps ensure that no light penetrates into the interior. Even the swimming pond transforms into a lighting object at night. A single luminaire with 13W LED and oval outline lens accentuates the entire water surface and plants, as another luminaire with just 3W illuminates the inserted brick wall with a crisp focused beam.
