The landlord, known for offering office and retail space at competitive rents in the popular West End business district, yesterday said its adjusted net asset value rose 11 per cent to 314p a share in the six months to the end of September. The valuation gain helped Great Portland outperform the Investment Property Databank Central London index, with a total property return of 10.1 per cent against an 8.3 per cent benchmark, but chief executive Toby Courtauld warned economic gloom had stripped momentum from the London real estate market comeback. “Whilst there continues to be a surfeit of buyers over sellers… we believe these more sedate conditions will persist into 2011 as the uncertain macro environment will continue to affect sentiment in the short term,” Courtauld said. Despite the cautious near-term outlook for London property prices, Courtauld said the company was encouraged by demand for its real estate assets after achieving new leases, reviews and renewals equating to £8.3m of new income. Total group revenue, including a share of joint venture rental income, was £37.1m, up 10.4 per cent on the same period last year.

It recorded £44bn outflows over the year, generating a net inflow of £2.6bn. The firm increased its full-year dividend to 7p per share.Management fees increased 48 per cent on the previous year, to £596.5m, while performance fees rose 212 per cent to £30.3m year-on-year.Execution Noble analyst Sri Karthik said profit before tax and earnings per share both beat his estimate by eight per cent.“Today’s results were ahead of our and consensus forecast on the back of higher than expected performance and transaction fees,” he said. Numis analyst David McCann said while the strong cash position had enabled the firm to raise the dividend, he saw weakness in organic flows and felt Aberdeen’s stock was now fairly valued. “Assuming good recent fixed income performance continues it will still likely take another circa 12 months to restore the all important three year track record, so much improved flows are unlikely until at least then,” he said.Gilbert said financial markets still posed many challenges and uncertainties but the company remained confident that its diversification would position it well.

Melbourne Victory cuts ties with sponsor over betting links

first_img Melbourne Victory cuts ties with sponsor over betting links Australian A-League football club Melbourne Victory has ended its sponsorship deal with Kaishi Entertainment over concerns regarding the Hong Kong-based media agency’s alleged links to an online gambling operator. Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting 8th March 2019 | By contenteditor Australian A-League football club Melbourne Victory has ended its sponsorship deal with Kaishi Entertainment over concerns regarding the Hong Kong-based media agency’s alleged links to an online gambling operator.Earlier this week, Victory dropped Kaishi branding from its kit ahead of a game in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League, taking to the field without a main shirt sponsor for the match with Korean team Daegu FC.Victory had been made aware of Kaishi’s supposed links with online betting operator KashBet and vowed to investigate before deciding whether to continue its relationship with the agency. The club had originally announced its partnership with Kaishi, covering shirt sponsorship in the AFC Champions League, earlier this month.AFC rules state that clubs competing in its tournaments cannot carry the name or brand of a gambling company on its shirts. The AFC had initially cleared the deal with Kaishi ahead of the match.The club has now said that it will not be entering an agreement with Kaishi for the AFC Champions League or in any other capacity due to its concerns over the gambling links, despite Kaishi stating that it is not involved with KashBet.“The club’s concerns remain that this company has links to online gambling, thus sits outside AFC guidelines and our internal policies, despite their representations otherwise,” Victory said. “The club would again like to thank the Football Federation Australia and AFC for their support and assistance on the matter.”Victory has now named consumer electronics brand TCL Electronics as its front-of-shirt sponsor for the remainder of the 2019 AFC Champions League campaign.

Sportech set to surpass full-year earnings expectations

first_img Betting technology provider Sportech believes it is on track to surpass its forecasted adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for the current financial year, while group revenue looks set to be in line with expectations.In a trading update, Sportech said it continued to drive operational efficiencies through all business lines, which in turn means that adjusted EBITDA, without sports betting investments, will be better than expected for the 12 months to 31 December 2019.Sportech said positive decisions have been taken to restructure the group, exit certain non-profitable activities and streamline costs. While this will lead to increased costs related to exceptional items for the current year, it would also deliver long-term returns, the business added.Meanwhile, Sportech noted that it has reduced its focus on capital expenditure projects, with this set to significantly cut costs in this area for 2019.In terms of divisional performance, Sportech said its focus on challenging every aspect of the business to deliver a more appropriate operational cost base helped offset the high fixed costs of the Venues business.Sportech’s other business units including Racing and Digital, Bump 50:50 and Lottery are expected to demonstrate net contribution growth in the full year.Richard McGuire, who was appointed chief executive of Sportech in July of this year, said: “Sportech now has a management team in place to transform the business to drive growth and efficiencies. We have extricated the group from a number of historically expensive strategies, delivered an efficient and lower operational cost base, and we are now much more confident in the group’s ability to deliver significant value to our clients and shareholders.”Sportech will publish its full-year results for the 12-month period on 19 March 2020.

NBA MVP 2020: Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo named most valuable player…

first_imgSportNBA 2020-21Sport News Latest Sports News Football Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said on Friday he’ll treasure his second straight NBA Most Valuable Player award and redouble his efforts to capture a league crown.The 25-year-old from Greece became just the third player in history to earn MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honors in the same season, after Michael Jordan in 1988 and Hakeem Olajuwon in 1994.

I’m extremely blessed.“It’s been a long journey,” Antetokounmpo added. “The people that know me, the people that know my story, you can never take these moments for granted.”Antetokounmpo won in a landslide, receiving 85 first-place votes from a global panel of sports reporters and broadcasters, the league announced on Friday.Los Angeles Lakers star James received 16 first-place votes and the third finalist, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, did not receive any first-place votes.The voting was based on performance from the start of the season through March 11, when play was shut down in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.It did not included the “seeding games” played when teams in contention for playoff spots once play resumed in Orlando.Antetokounmpo averaged 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists in leading the Bucks to the best regular-season record in the pandemic-disrupted season.But he had to watch from the sidelines as the Heat won game five of their semi-final series, nursing a sprained ankle suffered in game three and aggravated in game four.“Obviously, I am disappointed to not be able to help our team go to the third round,” he said. “That feeling cannot take away from this award.“I’m happy for this award, but I want more,” he said. “I want to be a champion.”As a veteran entering his eighth season, Antetokounmpo will be eligible to receive a supermax contract extension from the Bucks.The Bucks reportedly plan to extend that offer as soon as they can — after the 2019-20 season officially ends.There has been widespread speculation as to whether a player of Antetokounmpo’s stature will be happy to remain in the small market of Milwaukee.He met with Bucks owners including Marc Lasry before heading to Greece and has indicated he’d be open to staying.Providing he’s convinced the team is determined to invest the resources to pursue a title, Antetokounmpo said Friday, “I don’t see why not to be in Milwaukee for the next 15 years.” Football Football Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey: Top 5 players to watch out for in SUI vs TUR Football Euro 2020 LIVE broadcast in more than 200 countries, check how you can watch Live Streaming of EURO 2020 in your country Football RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Esports Euro 2020- Spain vs Poland Highlights: Spain held to 1-1 draw as Lewandowski’s Poland keep Euro hopes alive Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey LIVE: Switzerland to punish hapless Turkey; Follow Live Updates, Follow Live update Football Euro 2020 Points table: Germany secure first win, Poland keep Euro hopes alive; Check Euro 2020 latest group standings PUBG Mobile – Krafton IPO: PUBG Mobile promoters Krafton ready to break all records, aims 5 billion IPO NBA MVP 2020: Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo named most valuable player for 2nd time YourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDefinitionMost Embarrassing Mistakes Ever Made In HistoryDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

The project comprised alterations and additions to an existing red brick cottage in O’Connor. The primary components of the client brief included improved access to natural daylight & connection to rear yard, additional living spaces, good passive thermal performance, and flexibility of use. The existing cottage was renovated to provide new flooring finishes, new double glazed windows, wall and roof insulation and re-programming of some interior rooms. Strategically located skylights were added to increase natural daylight exposure and new roof tiles and sarking were installed. The existing house was largely retained in terms detailing and trims, The northern portion of the old house was re-programmed into a parents wing comprising bedroom, robes and ensuite. The southern portion of the house is used as living and “flexible” spaces that can become a study, spare bedroom, work out room etc.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe new works are located along the southern side of the block to preserve northern yard. The wing runs parallel to a stand of existing mature Elm Trees. There was a commitment by the project team to keep the Elms for their visual and cooling qualities. To preserve the health of the Elm trees, the new wing was elevated and built on lengthened piered footings with concrete edge beams. This reduced the impact on the Elm roots, and allows water and air to flow around root zones. Roof water from the new wing runs into an agg drain that discharges water around the Elm tree root zones. The Elms form a beautiful back drop to the new wing when looking south from the rear yard, and also provide a landscape vista through the new highlight windows.The new wing is conceived as a distinctly different architecture that allows for a clear preservation of the proportions and readability of the original cottage. The new wing includes kitchen, living & dining, laundry, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The architecture is expressive of function with a skillion roof lifting to the north to allow excellent solar access to new living spaces. The living spaces can open along the northern edge to provide convenient and flexible access to the rear yard. High light windows along the southern side allow excellent cross ventilation and glimpses of the mature Elm tree stand (without compromising privacy)Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectThe project also takes serious account of solar passive and sustainability principles. The new wing includes an insulated burnished concrete slab which provides excellent isolated thermal mass for use during winter and summer. Large eaves and external motorized blinds allow for summer sun to be kept off the slab when required. High level windows on northern and southern sides allow for good ventilation and night purging. Electric heat pumps are used for domestic hot water and infrastructure has been built in for a future PV array. The retention of the elms and incorporation of passive rain harvesting for their roots assists in reducing on block temperature during summer.Save this picture!© The Guthrie ProjectProject gallerySee allShow lessPrivate Villa JUGE / AtSpace ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSummmoru House / NOMALSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

New York protest says, ‘Odessa, Donbass, we are with you’

first_imgNew York protest remembers Odessa’s martyrs.WW photo: Greg ButterfieldA sudden cold snap and whipping winds couldn’t keep fired-up activists from protesting at the U.S. military recruitment center in Times Square on Nov. 2 to demand, “U.S. out of Ukraine!”They came to remember the anti-fascists massacred by neo-Nazis at Odessa’s House of Trade Unions six months before, and to stand in solidarity with the Donbass People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk on the day of their first elections since declaring independence from Ukraine.Protesters called for an independent investigation of the Odessa massacre, an immediate halt to direct and indirect U.S. aid to the Kiev government of oligarchs and neo-Nazis, and an end to NATO expansion aimed at destabilizing Russia.Officially, 48 people are said to have died on May 2, when fascist gangs bused into the multinational port city of Odessa attacked a protest camp set up by opponents of the U.S.-backed coup in Kiev. Armed neo-Nazis chased activists into the House of Trade Unions, and then set the building on fire. They shot people through the windows and beat to death others trying to flee the inferno.Odessa anti-fascists believe that many more died than the official tally.Echoing the chants of courageous mourners who earlier that day broke through police lines to reach the site of the tragedy in Odessa, the Times Square protesters chanted, “Odessa, Donbass, we are with you!”Despite the sharp winds, passersby took leaflets and many stopped to listen to speakers.Greg Butterfield, coordinator of the Ukraine Antifascist Solidarity Committee of the International Action Center, said: “We demand to know what the U.S. role was in the Odessa massacre. Both Democrats and Republicans in Washington have been deeply involved in every aspect of the far-right coup in Ukraine and the war against the people of Novorossiya,” as the union of the people’s republics is known.“Just like in Ferguson after the police murder of Mike Brown, in Odessa the guilty have been protected while the survivors of the massacre are repressed,” Butterfield said.“After Congress and President Obama agreed to cut almost $10 billion in food assistance to hungry families here, the U.S. turned around and pledged $10 billion in loans to the junta in Ukraine. There is a direct correlation between U.S. imperialist attacks on the people at home and abroad,” he said.The commemoration in Times Square was a truly international event, with activist-immigrants from Central America, Iran, Pakistan, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus rallying alongside those born in the U.S. Many held signs with photos of youths who died in Odessa and other recent young victims of U.S.-backed fascism and bigotry, like Robert Serra, a Venezuelan socialist leader, and Jennifer Laude, a transgender Filipina.At the end of the rally, the names of the known Odessa victims were read out. After a moment of silence, black balloons were released in honor of the anti-fascists who fell on May 2.For more on the Odessa massacre, see Workers World’s interview with survivor Alexei Albu of Borotba: tinyurl.com/nkc9n3wFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

What Will the End of the Year Bring?

first_img What Will the End of the Year Bring? SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News What Will the End of the Year Bring? Facebook Twitter Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 9:51 update with Gary Wilhelmi 12/24/2012Next articleOil Futures Add to Losses as Fiscal Cliff Nears Andy Eubank It’s highly unlikely that Congress and President Obama will come up with a fiscal cliff bill to deal with the national deficit – and even more unlikely a farm bill will be included. However – House Ag Ranking Member Collin Peterson says he is not worried about a bill being passed before next year. With a failed plan by Speaker of the House John Boehner last week – there’s no clear plan for the Senate and President Obama. The House has already adjourned – but Senators will return to Capitol Hill on Thursday – leaving four work days before the end of the year – and the end of the 112th Congress. If the House is needed back – Boehner says he will reconvene – but the House Ag and Senate Ag-passed farm bills will die in less than a week without any action – and that brings even more problems.Without a new farm bill or an extension of the current law – ag policy will revert back to 1949 policy – which would raise milk prices significantly. Based on that fact – Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow says a fiscal cliff deal needs to be passed with a farm bill attached. Peterson objects to the term going over the cliff because if everything expires – he says nothing dramatic happens. Taxpayers’ withholding will increase a bit – according to Peterson – but the sequestration cuts don’t immediately go into effect. Even though the U.S. Department of Agriculture has to implement 1949 law on January 1st without a new or extended bill – Peterson notes some economists have said it shouldn’t affect dairy prices until May or June.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – Dec 25, 2012 SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
