GREEN: PUBLIC SECTOR IS WASTING MILLIONS

first_img whatsapp Monday 11 October 2010 12:06 am GREEN: PUBLIC SECTOR IS WASTING MILLIONS DAVID Cameron will this morning vow to overhaul decades of wasteful public spending following a damning review by retail tycoon Sir Philip Green.Green, who was given access to departments’ accounts, will accuse the public sector of lacking a coherent spending plan. He will call for a shake-up of the government’s property leasing strategy and for Whitehall to take advantage of its scale by adopting a more centralised spending approach. Green said: “There is no reason why Government should not be as efficient as any good business.”The proposals are also thought to include cutting back on BlackBerrys given to civil servants.The decision to hire Green to examine cost cutting measures caused a rift in the coalition owing to his family’s tax situation. He is believed to have saved around £300m in 2005 on a £1.2bn dividend because retailer Arcadia is registered as owned by his wife, a resident of Monaco.

BHA: Racing faces “severe threat” as fans’ return delayed

first_img“We will urge the government to provide financial support, as they have indicated they are considering, and to accept the case for urgent reform of the Levy. The restrictions – which could be in place for up to six months – only apply to England, but the Prime Minister said that similar measures have been agreed with and will be rolled out by the governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland Horse racing Aside from the BHA, UK industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) also outlined its concerns over the new measures, saying that they could lead to the loss of 50% of all jobs in the UK casino sector. It had been hoped that spectators could return at sports events from 1 October, but this has now been delayed over fears that it could further fuel the spread of Covid-19. The BHA had already warned the UK government that the industry could lose as much as £300m (€326.5m/$382.9m) in revenue this year due to Covid-19, and will now carry out another economic impact assessment, with the aim of putting in place financial assistance to livelihoods and communities. BHA chief executive Nick Rust will today meet with Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden to hold talks over the impact on the industry, with the Prime Minister having already said that the government are working to support the sector. The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has warned that the racing industry in Great Britain faces a “severe threat” after the return of spectators to events was delayed due to an increase in novel coronavirus (Covid-19) cases. 22nd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said that today’s announcement “signalled the death knell” for the casino industry and urged the government to “throw the industry a lifeline”.center_img However, the BHA said that the delay to the public’s return to sporting events is a “serious blow” to the racing industry, as well as to the people and communities who depend upon it for their living. “The exemplary response from the spectators in following the measures we put in place has shown that organised events can be run safely,” the BHA said. “But despite all those efforts, our industry is now facing a severe threat. “Racing’s leaders are responding to this crisis by working together like never before,” Rust said. “We are working to a recovery plan, but today’s announcement will set back our progress. Email Address “Our loyal owners and our key international investors have stood by us and we ask government to work with us to maintain that confidence in racing and in Britain.” The decision comes despite a number of trial events across a number of sports, which saw a limited number of fans attend, while organisers ensured that strict Covid-19 measures were adhered to. “We are the second most attended spectator sport in the country. Without the millions of people who normally enjoy a day at the races, many people’s jobs are at serious risk, as are the businesses they work in.” Other measures include leisure facilities, such as casinos, bars and restaurants, having to close by 10pm from 24 September, while people are again encouraged to work from home if they can. BHA: Racing faces “severe threat” as fans’ return delayed Prime Minister Boris Johnson today (22 September) announced a number of new measures to slow the spread of Covid-19. This saw planned pilot programmes in which limited numbers of fans would be permitted to return to sporting venues cancelled. Topics: Sports betting Horse racinglast_img read more

A FTSE 250 growth stock I’d buy to beat the BT share price

first_img Spirent Communications (LSE: SPT) soared 15% on Monday morning on the release of a year-end trading update.Spirent bills itself as “a leading test, measurement, analytics and assurance technology company,” and it provides tech services to firms involved primarily in the broadband, internet telephony and wireless applications markets.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…Data and its analysis is key to online commercial success these days, and I think this kind of business is perhaps one of the best ‘picks and shovels’ ones to be in for the next decade. And Spirent is doing very well at it, with a 5.5% rise in revenue for 2019 to $503m.Adjusted operating profit should be $91m-$93m, up nearly 20% on the 2018 figure. Analysts had a 6% rise in EPS down for the year, but that’s looking like an underestimate now.Cash prospectsOn strategy, chief executive Eric Updyke said: “Over the medium term we expect to continue to deliver mid-single-digit revenue growth with a focus on increasing recurring revenue streams.”I’m pleased to see the focus is a long-term one on those recurring revenue streams, as that should establish a solid cash foundation for the future. I’ve seen too many technology companies rush for the fastest short-term growth they can achieve, leaving themselves overstretched and set for a crash.On valuation terms, we’re looking at forward P/E multiples of around 20, which I don’t think is too high at all for an attractive growth stock. Dividend yields of 2%-2.5% are testament to attractive cash flow at this stage too, and Spirent is set to end the year with net cash of $183m.Saddled with debtEnding the year with net cash on the books can be nothing more than a distant dream for BT Group (LSE: BT-A), which reported net debt of £6.1bn at the end of its first half at 30 September. The firm said the increase was “primarily due to implementation of IFRS 16,” plus the effect of net business cash outflows of £1.2bn.And then there’s the BT pension fund deficit, standing at £5.5bn at the same time, and which has been hanging round the company’s neck for years.The shares look cheap on the face of it, on a forecast P/E of only around eight, but those large debts take away a lot of that attraction. As a proportion of market capitalisation, the debt is growing as the share price falls.BT shares reached a recent peak in 2015 at around 500p, but at just 190p today that’s a 62% fall, which is massive for a FTSE 100 company of BT’s venerability.DividendsAn upside of the price fall, however, is that it’s pushed up dividend yields for those who buy now. For the year to March 2020, the predicted 15.4p dividend (which has been held flat for several years) would yield a tasty 8.1%. And an expected cut in 2021 would still provide 6.2%.But that’s another of my pet peeves — companies with huge debt paying big dividends. I’d really like to see BT rebasing its dividend, say to around 3%-4% on the current share price, and using the freed up cash to attack its borrowings instead. It might annoy investing institutions with their short-term outlook, but it would surely help in the long term.No, BT doesn’t tempt me at all.

Save this picture!Courtesy of partnerundpartner-architektenAlso on the outside you will find architectural elements of the Black Forest. The sheathing of the gable roof house is made of larch boards. In order to allow the façade to turn equally grey, the roof overhang was completely reduced. The size and the position of the square windows were defined according to the requirements of the interior. Each room provides an individual view into the surrounding nature. The windows were completed with local window shutters that support the asymmetric and lively appearance of the façade.

Thus this light construction gets the thermal mass it needs. The clay also regulates the indoor temperature and humidity and provides a healthy climate.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna has asked the state to disclose in what manner the migrant workers registered on the Seva Sindhu portal are chosen to travel by a particular train.The Court repeatedly observed that there was no “fair, transparent and rational” policy by the State Government in selecting eligible persons out of the migrants workers who have registered for travel.  The details were called after it was informed that the state had on May 26, sent an SMS seeking a re-confirmation from all registered migrant workers on whether they would like to travel back to their home states. Noting that this process of seeking confirmation was not practical and effective, the bench observed :”The confirmation was called for in a most complicated manner by calling upon them to type ‘YES’ followed by the last six digits of their registration number. Lakhs of migrant workers and their family members who have registered themselves on Seva Sindhu website are in a very bad condition. Most of them may not be in a position to give reply as aforesaid even assuming that their cell phones are working. They have no income and they are looking to the State Government for daily food and all basic necessities of life”. The Court added : “Prima facie, we are of the view that this exercise undertaken by the State of seeking confirmation from the migrant workers in a complicated manner appears to be an exercise undertaken to exclude a large number of persons who have already registered themselves on the Seva Sindhu website to go back to their respective States.”In this regard, the Court noted that a train which left from Karnataka to Uttar Pradesh on May 26 had many vacant seats. This might have happened due to the State’s failure to properly give communication to the registered migrant workers, the Court inferred.”The data placed on record by the State Government shows that the State Government received confirmation of 5,179 persons that they intend to travel back to the State of Uttar Pradesh. Thus, it is prima facie apparent that some seats in the aforesaid trains were vacant as the State could not inform all those who intended to travel to Uttar Pradesh to use the facility. Therefore, this ground for doing this exercise of calling for confirmation is not available to the State”. The government in its written submissions made to the court said that there are approximately 9,13,742 migrant workers/their family members/associates who have registered on Seva Sindhu website for seeking transport to their respective States. Out of that about 2,56,000 such persons have been transported by Shramik special trains. Between May 3 to May 27 a total of 2,56,000 persons have been transported. On May 26, the government after sending SMS got confirmations from only 55,464 migrant workers wanting to go back to their respective States. The court said “Prima facie, it appears to us that the State cannot give out of turn priority to 55,464 persons who have communicated their willingness by sending SMS. The reason is that there is a complete absence of a transparent and fair policy to choose persons out of registered applicants.” It added “Though several orders have been passed by this Court from time to time, as of today, the State has not placed on record any transparent and rational policy of selecting the persons out of those who have registered on Seva Sindhu website for being transported by a particular Shramik special train. It is not placed on record in what manner the persons registered on Seva Sindhu website are chosen to travel by a particular train.” The bench also sought to know how the Police Department identified 1,20,507 migrant workers across the Bengaluru City who are located in 736 migrant camps and arranged for their transport to their respective States.
