IPO market stunned as £1bn float pulled

first_img whatsapp Wednesday 30 March 2011 8:57 pm whatsapp Share OMAN’S Renaissance Services was yesterday forced to pull its £1bn London flotation of Topaz Energy after investors failed to show enough appetite for the shares.The banks were due to price the issue before lunch-time but did not do so after it became clear things were not going as planned.“Renaissance has a firm sense of what the business is worth and feels that it will get the valuation it wants at some time in the future,” said one banking source.Topaz, a Dubai-based oilfield services company, was due to raise £311m to fund expansion plans and repay its debt. Advisers expect the group to try a London issue again in the near future once markets have settled. The Danish group ISS earlier this month pulled its flotation and the French group Lagardere postponed a sale of a 20 per cent stake in Canal Plus.

Japanese racing to remain behind closed doors

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 10th August 2020 | By contenteditor The Japan Racing Association (JRA) has announced horse racing events in the country will remain behind closed doors due to ongoing efforts to prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). Horse racing Regions: Asia Japan Tags: Race Track and Racino Email Address Topics: Sports betting Horse racing The Japan Racing Association (JRA) has announced horse racing events in the country will remain behind closed doors due to ongoing efforts to prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).Race meetings were shut to the public on 29 February, but the JRA last month said Niigata Racecourse would reopen to spectators for the period between 15 August and 6 September.However, due to concerns over an increase in positive Covid-19 cases in Japan in recent weeks, the JRA has suspended the reopening of the venue, with racing to remain behind closed doors.Events at the Kokura and Sapporo Racecourses will continue behind closed doors, with the JRA yet to announce any plans to welcome customers back to the tracks.“As this suspension comes after a reopening was already announced, we must apologise for the great inconvenience caused our customers who had already reserved or purchased reserved seats,” the JRS said. “We also apologise for the concern this may have caused customers of JRA racing.”Last month, the JRA also said that it was to continue reopening off-track betting facilities, with all venues subject to limited opening hours and customers subject to strict safety protocols.Customers can cash out winning tickets and place bets, but televised racing and odds information are not currently being shown in the outlets. Hours of business are also restricted to between 9am and 2pm.Despite the shutdown of retail betting, the first half of the JRA’s 2020 season, which ran to 28 June, saw sales rise 1.5% year-on-year to JPY1.48tn (£10.70bn/€11.86bn/$13.94bn), with customers still able to bet online.

Today, I’m going to look at two FTSE 100 dividend stocks I think have the long-term quality needed to help fund my retirement.A global growth trendMost developed countries around the world are reporting ageing populations. More people are living longer, while birth rates are falling. At the same time, economic development in emerging markets is driving demand for improved healthcare and consumer goods.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…These trends suggest to me that demand for modern healthcare is likely to increase for the foreseeable future. This is one reason why I’ve chosen FTSE 100 pharmaceutical group GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) for my first pick.GSK missed out on the rally enjoyed by many pharma stocks last year. This was partly because sales of regular vaccines business suffered during lockdown, as people stayed away from doctors’ surgeries.However, the group’s turnaround is making progress. Sales of new pharmaceuticals rose by 12% to £2.5bn during the third quarter, accounting for 30% of all revenue. Glaxo also remained very profitable, with an operating margin of 22%.I expect this progress to continue. I’m also positive on the outlook for the consumer healthcare business, which owns brands such as Sensodyne and Nicorette. Boss Emma Walmsley plans to spin out this division into a new company over the next year or so. I think this will release value for shareholders.Glaxo’s unloved status means this FTSE 100 dividend stock currently trades on just 12 times forecast earnings. The stock’s dividend hasn’t been cut for 15 years and now provides a yield of 5.7%. I think GSK shares look too cheap. I’d bid up the share price if the company’s 2020 results showed continued progress.I already own a chunk of GSK stock, but I’m thinking about buying more.Still growing after 185 yearsCompanies with long histories aren’t guaranteed to survive. But I believe a long, successful history is a good clue a business will continue to evolve and grow in the future. One long-lived company I rate very highly is pensions and insurance firm Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN).Legal & General wrote its first life assurance policy in 1836. In 2019, the company reported assets under management of £1,196bn and generated a pre-tax profit of £2.1bn. Shareholders received £1.1bn in dividends, all of which was covered by surplus cash.In recent years, the firm’s strategy of buying out corporate pension schemes has supported continued growth. So-called Pension Risk Transfer sales totalled £11.4bn in 2019.  This has enabled Legal & General to increase the dividend regularly while maintaining good levels of earnings cover.Looking ahead, chief executive Nigel Wilson says that dividend payments are expected to total £5.6bn-£5.9bn between 2020 and 2024. That’s equivalent to around 36% of the current share price — not bad, in my view.Investor worries about low interest rates and the outlook for the global economy have kept Legal & General’s share price pinned down over the last year. This has left the stock valued on just nine times forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 6.6%. I’d like to buy this FTSE 100 dividend stock for my portfolio.last_img read more

These include Nick Grono (CEO, The Freedom Fund), Tim Dixon (MD, Purpose), Mabel van Oranje (Chair, Girls Not Brides), and Gemma Mortensen (Chief Global Officer, Change.org). They have worked on it “in close collaboration with her husband Brendan Cox”.The £400,000 total was made up of 13,674 donations.The funds raised will be distributed among three charities “closest to her heart” and chosen by her family:The Royal Voluntary Service, to support volunteers helping combat loneliness in Jo’s constituency, Batley and Spen in West Yorkshire.HOPE not hate, who seek to challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities across Britain.The White Helmets, volunteer search and rescue workers in Syria. Unarmed and neutral, these heroes have saved more than 51,000 lives from under the rubble and bring hope to the region.Before being elected last year MP for Batley and Spen, Cox worked for charities. She worked for NSPCC, and for Oxfam and Oxfam International from 2001 to 2009 where she was head of policy, and also ran the charity’s office in Brussels where she led the charity’s campaign for international trade reform.She advised the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and anti-slavery organisation The Freedom Fund. She supported many charities, and recently took part in the Parliamentary Tug of War in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.She was chair of the Labour Women’s Network, working to improve the chances for women to become MPs. Her husband, Brendan Cox, previously worked for Save the Children.He said hours after her death:“Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy, and a zest for life that would exhaust most people. She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now, one that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her.” Advertisement What charities said about Jo Cox MP  134 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis34 Howard Lake | 18 June 2016 | News Tagged with: crowdfunding Digital GoFundMe Fundraising appeal in memory of Jo Cox MP raises £400k in one day About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
