GVC to avoid £700m Ladbrokes payout after FOBT stake cut

first_img Topics: Finance Legal & compliance GVC to avoid £700m Ladbrokes payout after FOBT stake cut AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 15th November 2018 | By contenteditor Email Address GVC Holdings looks set to avoid paying out around £700m (€792.4m/$893.9m) to former investors in Ladbrokes Coral after the UK government agreed to introduce legislation to cut maximum stakes on fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs). Yesterday (November 14th), the government announced that it was to bring forward FOBT maximum stake changes and a 6% rise in Remote Gaming Duty to April 2019.The FOBT change will be enshrined by a Statutory Instrument in Parliament this week according to a statement released by Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright on Wednesday. The stake cut was not mentioned in the Finance Bill, which sets out the government’s spending and tax plans for 2019, although was referenced by Chancellor Philip Hammond in his Budget speech last month.The announcement means that GVC will avoid a payment in relation to Contingent Value Rights (CVRs) set out as part of its acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral in March. The CVR required GVC to make a payment of around £700m to former shareholders in Ladbrokes if legislation covering a cap on the maximum stakes for FOBTs was not passed before March 28th, 2019. Analysts have said that GVC will now face a one-off cost of £80m as a result of the earlier implementation, thus saving the company around £600m. An analyst from Berenberg Bank told Reuters: “With this risk dispelled, and with certainty on the regulatory outcome in the UK, we think many negative catalysts are out of the way.” GVC shares were up 6.8% at the close of trading yesterday, but are trading down 4.38% at 785.00 pence per share this morning.Last month Chancellor Hammond said in his Autumn Budget statement that both measures would be effective from October 2019. However this led to sports Minister Tracey Crouch resigning in protest at the decision, and prompted a cross-party rebellion in the House of Commons to push for the earlier implementation date, forcing the government into a U-turn.

Dow named to Bloomberg’s 2021 Gender-Equality Index

first_img Dow named to Bloomberg’s 2021 Gender-Equality Index TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 Facebook MIDLAND, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– In recognition of its commitment to gender inclusion in the workplace, the supply chain and the communities in which it operates, Dow (NYSE:DOW) has been included in the 2021 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). This is the first year Dow has been included in the GEI. Expanded this year to represent 44 countries and regions, the unranked index comprises 380 companies across 11 sectors. Dow’s cumulative GEI score significantly outperformed the materials sector and the broader GEI average. “Dow is committed to ensuring that the talents and unique perspectives of women are invited and included at every level of our company,” said Howard Ungerleider, president and chief financial officer of Dow and executive sponsor of the Company’s Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) employee resource group. “Achieving a spot in the GEI demonstrates the effectiveness of our intentional actions to support women’s advancement through deliberate policy and building a culture of inclusion.” The GEI brings transparency to gender-related practices and policies at publicly listed companies, increasing the breadth of environmental, social, governance (ESG) data available to investors. The comprehensive, transparent GEI scoring methodology allows investors to assess company performance and compare across industry peer groups. The reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand. Dow was included in this year’s index for scoring at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect a high level of disclosure and overall performance across the framework’s five pillars. “The companies included in the 2021 GEI are expanding the ESG data universe to include gender-related data that investors are demanding today,” said Peter T. Grauer, chairman of Bloomberg. “Their commitment to disclosure is making the business case for inclusion and driving transparency in the markets.” Through disclosure of gender-related metrics using the GEI framework, the firms included in the 2021 GEI have committed to providing a comprehensive look at their investment in workplace gender equality and the communities in which they operate, raising the bar of what should be expected from other companies within the same industry. The GEI and its framework are voluntary and have no associated costs. The GEI is a reference index and is not intended for use as a financial benchmark. The index is not ranked. While all public companies are encouraged to disclose supplemental gender data for their company’s investment profile on the Bloomberg Terminal, those that have a market capitalization of USD1 billion are eligible for inclusion in the index.

2 dead, 29 hurt as tornado destroys hotel, trailer park in El Reno, Oklahoma

first_imgEl Reno damage pic.twitter.com/XLf2T3YhM0— Dillon Richards (@KOCODillon) May 26, 2019The tornado that hit El Reno comes on the heels of a very active severe weather week in the Southern Plains. There were 104 tornadoes reported across eight states — Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, and Maryland — from Monday to Thursday.Three people were killed in Golden City, Missouri, on Thursday as a tornado moved through the region. The state’s capital, Jefferson City, about 170 miles northeast of Golden City, also suffered severe damage the same night from a tornado, but no one was killed.At least four other people were also killed from storms, including flash flooding, in the central U.S. this week.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. KOCO-TV(RENO, Okla.) — At least two people were killed and 29 injured, some critically, when a tornado ripped through an Oklahoma City suburb in the middle of the night, wiping out a hotel, a mobile-home park and several other buildings.The National Weather Service confirmed Sunday that a tornado hit El Reno, a town with a population of nearly 20,000, on Saturday night.El Reno Mayor Matt White said at a news conference Sunday morning that the two deaths occurred in the area of a mobile-home park where the twister touched down about 10:30 p.m.He said search-and-rescue teams were conducting grid searches through the devastated area, “picking up walls of debris to make sure nobody is under there.”“This community is brokenhearted, we’re hurt, we’re absolutely devastated,” White said.He said an unknown number of people are still unaccounted for.White said 16 people were taken by ambulance to hospitals from the epicenter of the disaster zone and another 13 were raced to hospitals in private vehicles. He said injuries ranged from minor to critical, and that several people were undergoing surgery at the Oklahoma University Medical Center in Oklahoma City.“Search and rescue continue, National Guard will report here within the hour; still an unknown number of people missing, two confirmed fatalities,” Andrew Skidmore, emergency manager for Canadian County, Oklahoma, told ABC News. “We called every available resource to come help.”Emergency officials said the tornado cut a 2-mile long, 200-foot wide swath through the community, and that debris was carried more than 4 miles northeast of El Reno.The mayor said preliminary indications are that the twister was a category EF-2 or EF-3, meaning wind speeds ranged from 111 to more than 200 miles per hour. National Weather Service said the tornado was at least an EF-2 on the intensity level scale that goes to EF-5.Video showed the devastation. The tornado hit the hotel, an American Budget Value Inn, on Interstate 40, ripping off most of its second floor, and reducing much the structure to splintered pieces of wood and shattered glass.“As far as we know right now, there is no one in the rubble,” the hotel’s owner, Ramesh Patel, told ABC Oklahoma affiliate KOCO-TV.A woman who was working in the office when the tornado hit suffered a broken leg, Patel said.White confirmed that everyone at the hotel when the tornado struck has been accounted for.At sunrise Sunday, video showed a mobile-home park next to the hotel strewn with shattered glass, wood and other debris that just hours earlier were residences of a thriving community. Aerial footage showed the twister slammed residences in a corner of the mobile-home park while leaving other homes virtually unscathed.Several vehicles were overturned and others were smashed by debris.A woman who survived the tornado told KOCO that she and her two grandchildren escaped their mobile home only to find themselves in the middle of a “disaster zone.”“We heard screaming and stuff, children and adults both,” she said. “A lot of destruction, a lot of chaos and a lot of death … just bodies everywhere.”After striking the mobile-home park, the tornado hit the hotel and a nearby Dodge dealership, tearing the roof off the business, aerial footage showed.“We have absolutely experienced a traumatic event here in El Reno,” White said. “We had an incident where a tornado hit a mobile-home park, a hotel, and several businesses.”White asked people to stay away from the area while search-and-rescue teams continue to pick through the rubble from the hotel and mobile-home park.“I think El Reno, Oklahoma, needs a lot of prayers. It’s been a traumatic experience,” White said. “None of this is easy. We’re all shook up.”Police in the neighboring town of Union City said the ferocious funnel cloud created a “very serious situation” with “serious injuries and fatalities involved.”“Please pray for those affected by these storms as well as the emergency services workers assisting in this ongoing rescue,” police said in a statement posted to Facebook. “This is an unfortunate example of just how quickly these types of storms can develop from a simple thunderstorm into a deadly supercell tornado.”A National Weather Service meteorologist confirmed the catastrophic weather event was a tornado by analyzing radar images and seeing a “debris ball” in the area, and by detecting telltale evidence of a twister by examining pictures of the damage and eyeballing the devastation in person, officials said.last_img read more

Q & A

first_imgRelated posts: Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today. We do not publish a… Previous Article Next Article Q & AOn 11 Dec 2001 in Military, Personnel Todaycenter_img Comments are closed. Your legal questions answeredQ  Our company is going through alarge-scale redundancy programme. One employee is being particularly difficultand is insisting we pay him the same enhanced redundancy package we offered toredundant employees two years ago. Is he right? The package we are offering atthe moment is less, although still more than statutory redundancy pay. A  For your employee to arguesuccessfully that he is entitled to the previous redundancy package, he willneed to show he has a contractual right to receive that same package. This will depend on his ability to show that the previous package has becomecontractual by “custom and practice.” The legal test is that it mustbe “certain” and “notorious”. The sorts of questions you need to consider are: How often the same packagehas been offered to your staff; what sort of information about the package wasgiven to employees at the time; were the packages expressed to be discretionaryand/or capable of variation or discontinuation at any time; did each redundancypackage require individual sign off by the employees’ line managers? If you are able to show some of these, then you may be able to resist theemployee’s claim. Q  We are reducing the number ofsales managers from two to zero. Our current head of sales will absorb their role.We have told both of the displaced managers what is happening but one of themis disputing our business case. He is also refusing to enter into anyconsultation with us, and is threatening to “create trouble”. Whatshould we do? A  If the company’s business caselooks genuine, the tribunal is unlikely to probe the commercial merits of anydecision to make redundancies. But the issue of consultation is more difficult. If you have made repeatedunsuccessful attempts to engage in dialogue with the employee, then you areprobably justified in abandoning your efforts to consult with him. Given the employee’s unco-operative behaviour, he is likely to havedifficulties in bringing a claim for unfair dismissal based on a lack ofconsultation. Keep a record of your attempts to speak to him, so that if heclaims lack of consultation, you can rebut that. Q  Two of our employees are in theTerritorial Army and may be called up to go to Afghanistan. If this happens, wewill need to arrange cover for them. Do we have to take them back when theyreturn? A  If your employees ask for theirjobs back within six months of the end of their military service, you areobliged to reinstate them on terms no less favourable than before. If this isnot reasonable or practical, they must be employed in the most favourableposition and on the most favourable terms reasonable and practical. However, if they wait more than the six months, you are under no obligationto reinstate them. If they apply within the six-month period, then their periodof military service does not break the continuity of their employment with you.Nicholas Moore is head of employment at Osborne Clarke last_img read more
