The company said that a reduction in its financial planning assumptions resulted in a one pence reduction in earnings per share, per annum.The government on Tuesday said it would delay renewing its nuclear deterrent and cut back its army, navy and air force as part of the harshest spending cuts for a generation, aimed at reducing a record budget deficit.The armed forces review, the first since 1998, unveiled a military with fewer people, fewer ships, fewer aircraft, fewer nuclear warheads and a smaller budget.Britain said the BAE-made Harrier aircraft would be retired from service but that the Tornado fleet, which BAE also makes, would be maintained.Orders for nine of BAE’s Nimrod MRA4 reconnaissance aircraft, due to start entering service this year, were also scrapped, while an order for Joint Strike Fighter jets – on which BAE is a partner – will be cut.However, the Royal Navy said BAE could go ahead with an order to build seven Astute class submarines.BAE, Europe’s largest arms contractor, also said its outlook for 2010 remains subject to talks on the cancellation of an offshore patrol vessel programme by Trinidad and Tobago.“Whilst the financial consequences (of the Trinidad and Tobago deal) cannot be definitively assessed at this time … the group estimates a charge of up to £150m, before tax, may be required in its 2010 accounts,” BAE said. last_img read more

The regulator has opened a consultation into whether the market for private hospitals and medical procedures offer customers enough choice and value, ahead of a full investigation in early 2011. As the NHS accounts for 25 per cent of all revenues into the private health industry, the government is increasingly eager to get value for money from providers.“We are keen to establish whether patients and buyers of private healthcare services, including the NHS, are getting the full benefit of choice and competition,” said OFT senior director Sonya Branch. The top five private healthcare providers according to acute medical revenues, which includes names such as Spire Healthcare and Nuffield Health, accounted for 71 per cent of the UK market in 2008. OFT research has led to concerns that too much of the market is too concentrated in the hands of a few major companies, making it harder for new players to gain ground. Branch told City A.M. that “our own research suggests markets are not working optimally,” adding that a range of submissions from people at different stages in the market alerted the OFT to the fact that “something more endemic” was wrong than any one isolated factor.The market study will investigate concentration and market access but also whether the industry imposes any restrictions on doctors and how easily consumers can access, understand and compare provider information. Medical insurance provider Bupa said it would support the study. “Competition in the private healthcare market is good for our customers,” said Dr Natalie-Jane Macdonald, managing director of Bupa Health and Wellbeing.Ageing populations, longer life expectancy and reforms to the NHS have all added to the role private healthcare provision plays in the UK. whatsapp OFT to probe UK’s private health sector Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Luckbox cuts losses by 73.2% in 2020 as costs fall

first_imgSalaries and director fees were the largest expense at $1.5m, followed by legal and professional fees of $907,100, share-based compensation of $887,600 and $521,400 in general and administrative costs. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter After the end of the year, Luckbox announced that it would be offering traditional sports through a partnership with EveryMatrix. Luckbox cuts losses by 73.2% in 2020 as costs fall A decline in stock compensation expenditures helped Luckbox owner Real Luck Group cut its losses in 2020 as its revenue rapidly increased but remained low. “Fiscal 2020 was an important year for our young company as we achieved several important milestones, including our oversubscribed equity financing and public listing on the TSX Venture Exchange,” Martin said.  Real Luck Group chief executive Quentin Martin said the business’ low revenue was due to the fact that it was still primarily focused on developing its platform rather than taking a large volume of bets. The business then had costs of sales totalling $288,900, up 255.6%. This meant Luckbox made a gross loss of $212,500. 4th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle After tax and currency adjustments, Luckbox’s net loss was down 73.2% and remained at $5.5m. “Our focus throughout fiscal 2020 was on developing our proprietary esports betting platform and, despite nominal marketing spend, we were able to organically and efficiently increase our audience as the global pandemic brought esports betting into focus during early 2020,” Martin said. esports bettingcenter_img This led to an operating loss of $5.4m. Other income and expenses, including a gain on convertible options and expenses related to listing on the TSX Venture Exchange in Toronto, largely canceled eachother out, resulting in a net pre-tax loss of $5.5m, down 73.3%. Luckbox then paid $5.2m in operating expenses, which was 73.2% less than in 2019, thanks mostly to reduced share-based compensation.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Luckbox Topics: Esports esports betting “However, the calendar of esports events was adversely impacted, particularly in the second half, due to the postponement of the biggest esports event of the year – the Dota 2 International.” Revenue increased almost 18 times over to $75,500 (£44,200/€51,000/$61,300). All of the business’ revenue was made through its operations based in the Isle of Man.  Regions: Canada “This year’s esports calendar looks much better, and our strong balance sheet positions us for healthy growth in 2021 and 2022. As we continue to grow our team, enhance our product and spread the word about Luckbox with a comprehensive marketing strategy in place, we look forward to offering our customers the opportunity to wager on several highly anticipated events.”  Email Addresslast_img read more

Urban yet bucolic, this project rounds out the urban renewal of the Courghain district in Dunkirk’s suburbs. The venue is divided between the very city-oriented square of the same name and a watergang (a small Dutch-like canal). All the more so because the city’s urban planner called for facades on each of the surrounding streets and blocks on the square while the project only contains 57 social housing units.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe challenge consisted in applying the brief in small walk-through housing units organized around an inner meadow. The rough-hewn walls also had to lend an urban face to the project while fostering its incorporation into the watergang landscape. The units’ living rooms are turned towards the center of the development and the canal, an arrangement that is accentuated by the large balconies that jut out towards the landscape in search of sunlight. Despite the project’s low compactness, the envelope is so effective that the building has been classified as a low-energy consumer. With a landing between two units, it is easy to feel immediately at home. Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!DetailProject gallerySee allShow lessPies Descalzos School / Giancarlo MazzantiSelected ProjectsFoster + Romero Alliance Wins Competition to Design the Mexico City Airport ExpansionArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Dunkirk, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Food workers vote to strike Kroger

first_imgIn a fabulous display of working-class power, hundreds of members of the Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 voted unanimously May 18 in Salem, Va., to reject a rotten Kroger contract proposal and authorize their bargaining committee to call a strike. Local 400 members, many of whom drove hundreds of miles to vote, are working at 41 Kroger retail food stores from eastern Tennessee to West Virginia and southwest and central Virginia.Before the vote, Kroger had said it’s latest contract proposal was its “last, best offer.” After the vote, Kroger agreed to resume bargaining with Local 400 on May 23-24 and to extend the previous contract until June 4.UFCW members were backed up at the voting site by numerous labor and community supporters, including members of the Coalition For Justice from Blacksburg; Communication Workers who are now striking Verizon; and the Southern Workers Assembly. All of them had support signs and held a banner reading “Solidarity Forever: We Support Kroger Workers.”A UFCW Local 400 statement after the vote noted, “Kroger’s latest proposal would have provided only slight wage increases and no paid sick days for store associates. It also fell short of renewing the company’s commitment to providing health insurance for its retirees.”“By rejecting this insulting offer and voting to authorize a strike,” the statement continued, “we sent a strong, clear message to Kroger: We demand a fair deal and we are willing to fight for it.” (ufcw400.org)While Kroger offered Local 400 members only a 25-cent-an-hour wage increase over the next four years, the company gave CEO Rodney McMullen a 17 percent raise to $11.2 million a year. Other executives also received millions in pay raises. Kroger is now the largest retail food chain in the U.S., after buying Harris Teeter for cash in 2013. Kroger made over $2.4 billion in profits in 2015.Local 400 members are now engaging in a variety of workplace actions, including outreach to Kroger customers in stores, and external community outreach as part of the current contract campaign.For more information and how to support Local 400, visit facebook.com/UFCW400 and ufcw400.org.
