PayPoint benefits from mobile foray

first_imgThursday 12 August 2010 8:25 pm whatsapp PayPoint benefits from mobile foray whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL PAYPOINT yesterday said its move into mobile phone payments had helped revenue rise seven per cent between March and July.The firm, whose services include bill payment terminals and ATM machines, made net revenue of £26m from 29 March to 25 July after its takeover of PayByPhone, which allows motorists to pay for their parking by credit or debit card over their mobiles.Bill payment, internet and retail services also grew in the period.PayPoint said bill and general payment transactions were in line with its expectations. In Romania, it processed more than three million bill payments, up more than 200 per cent.Net cash as of 25 July fell to £6m from £15m on 28 March.PayPoint is currently in a battle with lottery operator Camelot, which wants to give customers the chance to pay bills at their terminals.The National Lottery Commission (NLC) has launched an investigation into Camelot’s plans and could block the move. PayPoint has argued that Camelot’s move would be unfair on its rivals who are already in the payments business. The NLC has already blocked one Camelot plan.

Mall owner disposes of four sites

first_img KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Monday 16 August 2010 8:01 pm Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img THE Mall Fund, a major investor in shopping centres in the UK, yesterday offloaded four sites for £135.9m.The fund, set up by Capital & Regional and Aviva Investors in 2002, sold the shopping centres to clients of Rockspring Property Investment Managers as part of its drive to cut debts.The Liberty 2 Shopping Centre in Romford was sold along with the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Gloucester, the Marlands Shopping Centre in Southampton, and the Howgate Centre in Falkirk.They were valued at £128.1m at the end of June and sold for six per cant above that figure, comfortably beating analyst expectations.Capital & Regional and Aviva last month obtained consent from investors and bondholders to restructure £1bn of loans held by The Mall Fund. It must now cut the fund’s loan-to-value ratio to 65 per cent in 2014 from the current 80 per cent.Other investors in The Mall Fund include the Prudential, Isis Property Asset Management, ING Real Estate, Scottish Widows, Hermes Real Estate, F&C Asset Management, Arlington Property Investors, Sparinvest and pension fund APG.The sale reduces the number of centres the Mall Fund owns to 12. Its most recent project was a £66m development in Blackburn that opened at the end of July.

Net profit after tax from continuing operations rose to $206m from $188m a year ago, beating forecasts of around $156m. First-half container volumes at its ports around the world climbed seven per cent to the equivalent of 13.2m twenty-foot containers, as global trade levels increased. The company also enjoyed a lift from new ports opening in Saigon, Vietnam and Callao, Peru. DP World chief executive Mohammed Sharaf said new terminals and improvements in non-container revenue, along with continued cost management, helped to boost earnings.“As we move into the second half of the year, uncertainty remains over the sustainability of global trade volumes. However… we are on track to meet full year results in line with our expectations,” Sharaf added yesterday. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Rolls-Royce hit as fears mount

first_imgSunday 7 November 2010 9:27 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Share ROLLS-ROYCE, one of Britain’s last remaining manufacturing giants, suffered a fresh blow yesterday. Australian flag carrier Qantas claimed it had found issues with three more engines on its grounded Airbus A380 “superjumbo” fleet following last week’s engine failure.Qantas has removed two engines from an A380 in Sydney and one from a jet in Los Angeles following checks on the aircraft in the wake of Thursday’s incident on a Qantas jet flying to Australia..Qantas grounded its A380 fleet and Rolls-Royce advised airlines to make the checks after one of the Trent 900 engines on Qantas flight QF32 from Singapore to Sydney failed and the aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing in Singapore.Qantas said it needed to remove the engines from the wings of the aircraft in Sydney and LA for closer inspection, although it declined to give details.The news could scupper hopes voiced by Qantas boss Alan Joyce on Saturday of being able to get the fleet airborne again “within days”.There appeared to have been a breakthrough in the investigation yesterday after Australian investigators said they had found part of the engine on Batam Island in Indonesia that could be crucial in understanding what caused the engine to fail.The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) said it was forwarding an engine part, said to be half of a geared disc, to Rolls-Royce in the UK for inspection under the supervision of ATSB investigators.It urged residents of Batam Island to give any other engine parts they found, particularly more fragments of the disc, to local police.“The recovery of that disk could be crucial to a full understanding of the nature of the engine failure, and may have implications for the prevention of future similar occurrences,” the ATSB said.Rolls-Royce, which makes the Trent 900 engine at its civil aerospace plants in Derby, yesterday refused to comment on the latest reports.The company, whose share price has fallen nearly a tenth in two days, issued a statement last week saying it was working closely with Airbus, airlines and the authorities in the investigation, which it said was at an early stage. A spokesman also refused to comment after it emerged that Rolls’ US rival Pratt & Whitney was suing the British firm over claims that the turbine fan blade used in the Trent 900 was based on a P&W design. Rolls-Royce is headed by Sir John Rose.Rolls has also sued P&W over the issue, claiming it had the valid patent for the fan blade design. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Many believe that the euro zone is just moving from one crisis to the next.”Ireland’s central bank chief has acknowledged that the country needs a loan running into the tens of billions of euros to shore up an extremely fragile banking sector that has grown dependent on ECB funds.Reflecting concerns among other euro zone periphery countries that Ireland’s financial troubles could spread, Greece’s finance minister pressed Dublin to move fast.“We are now at a point where decisions have to be taken,” George Papaconstantinou told the banking congress in Frankfurt. “Time is of the essence.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Bankers horse-trade with coalition on pay

first_img CHANCELLOR George Osborne and business secretary Vince Cable yesterday summoned the chief executives of Britain’s biggest banks to a two-and-a-half hour meeting in which they tried to strike a deal to avoid further action on bonuses.A source close to Santander UK, whose new chief executive Ana Patricia Botin attended the meeting, told City A.M.: “It’s horse-trading: can we make a commitment on lending to small businesses and the Big Society bank in return for leniency on pay.”The government has emphasised to banks that it wants a reduction in the size of the bonus pool to accompany a “change in culture” on pay, but is prepared to strike a deal if banks give other concessions. In response, the UK’s banks have offered to lend £70bn to small businesses next year, versus around £60bn this year.The meeting, which had been delayed a day due to Osborne being stranded in New York by the snow on Monday, was part of a series of planned gatherings as part of “Project Merlin”, a cooperative initiative between banks aimed at reviving the industry’s image. In place of attending the meeting on Monday, bank chiefs held a phone conference to discuss a framework for negotiations with the treasury.The treasury is already reluctant to take further action on bonuses in part because of regulation already introduced by the EU and the Financial Services Authority.Regulations published last week forbid financial institutions from paying any more than 20 to 30 per cent of a bonus in cash up front, with half of any bonus obliged to be in the form of non-cash instruments such as shares. The scheme is the most stringent in the world. However, the government has said that it does want action on pay disclosure, a cause championed by Cable. whatsapp More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org Share whatsapp Tuesday 21 December 2010 8:57 pm KCS-content Bankers horse-trade with coalition on pay Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Economists had forecast a broadly steady reading of £8.6bn.December was Britain’s coldest in at least one hundred years and heavy snow and ice closed many airports, though the ONS said they may have recovered some business later in the month.Even excluding volatile trade in oil and goods such as aircraft, Britain’s goods trade deficit rose to £8.175bn from £7.382bn, also its highest since monthly records began in 1980.The total trade deficit, which includes services, deteriorated to its worst level since August 2005, increasing to £4.831bn from £3.947bn.

Virgin looks to businesses for growth

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Thursday 17 February 2011 8:14 pm CABLE-to-entertainment group Virgin Media yesterday reported quarterly revenue figures of £1bn, up from £941.3m a year ago, predicting strong growth from its business services division in the year ahead.Virgin chief executive Neil Berkett said the order book for business data services was up 40 per cent from a year ago and he said that growth in this area would be faster than the consumer area.In the consumer space the group said it attracted 17,100 net new cable customers in the fourth quarter ending December 31 and that cable average revenue per user rose 4.9 per cent to £47.51 in the fourth quarter from £45.28 a year earlier. Its total number of cable homes stands at 4.8m, still well down on that of its main competitor BSkyB.Sanford Bernstein said in a research note it sees “significant opportunity in coming years” for the group. The broker has an ‘outperform’ rating and target price of 2,500p on the stock. The stock has risen 79 per cent over the past 12 months.Although Berkett described Virgin’s relationship with BSkyB as “as good as it ever has been” there are still tensions, not least over the launch of Sky’s prized new US import channel Sky Atlantic.Virgin is not showing the channel, tempting some of its customers to switch to Sky. Berkett said that he had not been able to agree a price with his rival for “a single channel which is completely unproven.”Berkett said his offering had its own advantages, such as video on demand and faster broadband speeds. He also said that Virgin had reduced its prices for Sky Sports following a regulatory ruling last summer but it had not passed all the savings on to its customers, choosing to boost its margins.

Tokyo Gas will also take a 1.25 per cent equity stake in some of BG’s coal seam gas reserves as well as a 2.5 per cent stake in the project’s second LNG train, BG said. BG’s Queensland project was given the final go-ahead last October after Australia’s government gave its environmental approval.
