first_img whatsapp Aggreko in boost from World Cup Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL AGGREKO, the world’s biggest provider of temporary power, again upgraded its outlook for the year after posting a jump in first-half profit, helped by contracts for major sporting events.Aggreko said events such as the Vancouver Winter Olympics and the soccer World Cup, for which it provided generators and chillers, brought its local business unit £48m in revenues in the first half.“We believe that we will make further good progress in the second half and the outcome for the year as a whole will be slightly better than our previous expectations,” chairman Philip Rogerson said.The company, which is supplying cooling and power equipment to people cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill on the Louisiana coast, said it also planned to raise the interim and final dividend by 50 per cent each to reflect recent profit growth.For the six months to the end of June, underlying trading profit rose 23 per cent to £131.2m on revenue up 17 per cent at £585.6m.Pre-tax profit rose 19 per cent to £127.1m and the interim dividend is being increased to 6.55p. A poll of analysts taken before yesterday’s results showed a mean estimate of £285m for 2010 pre-tax profit. center_img whatsapp Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:46 pm KCS-content Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldUndoTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading BlvdUndo More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orglast_img read more

The better-than-expected data boosted shares and helped the US dollar to gain ground against the yen as traders moved out of safe-haven assets and bought back into the dollar. “No one was bullish on the labour market, but it was not as bearish as some people had thought. Our call is still that we are not heading toward a double-dip,” said Thomas Simons, a New York-based economist at Jefferies.Although traders welcomed the less bearish jobs data, analysts said the claims are still much too high to indicate a substantial shift in what remains a weak labour market.Analysts also pointed to the four-week average of new claims, which is considered to be a more reflective measure of the underlying trends in the US jobs market. This rose 3,250 to 486,750, which is the highest number since late November.The outlook for August’s headline unemployment rate, which will be published next Friday, is still extremely weak. On average, US economists forecast 110,000 layoffs, mostly Census-related. This would put the jobless rate at 9.7 per cent. FAST FACTS | A BAD WEEK FOR US DATABoth new and existing home sales fell at the sharpest monthly pace in July since records began in 1963. Durable goods orders were weak, supported only by a rise in commercial aircraft orders.

With a low bid, ACS expects rejection, but will then be allowed to increase its stake incrementally without paying a premium.ACS confirmed that a stake of just over 50 per cent is its target. Analysts said that would allow it to consolidate the cashflows of Leighton Holdings, which make up 82 per cent of Hochtief’s first-half pre-tax profit, into its balance sheet.“Hochtief’s main charm is Leighton Holdings and this is definitely also appealing to ACS, and other companies for that matter,” analyst Heino Ruland of Ruland Research said.

RICS: Further falls in UK house prices is expected

Posted On Sep 4 2021 by

first_img KCS-content RICS: Further falls in UK house prices is expected Tags: NULL ESTATE agents are predicting that house prices will fall even further, according to the September housing market survey from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which is published today.A growing supply of new properties acted as a drag on the current price balance with a net 36 per cent of estate agents reporting falling rather than rising prices. A net 41 per cent expect prices to fall even further.RICS spokesperson Ian Perry said: “The fresh influx of property to the market combined with a lack of buyers remains the key problem affecting the sector.”“Without sufficient demand property prices continue to slip back. However, many areas are reporting a correction rather than dramatic falls in prices. It’s very much a buyers’ market at the moment,” he added. whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’Kevin Can F**k Himself’: Here’s Why Only Allison and Patty Are SeenThe Wrap20 Stars Who’ve Posted Nude Selfies, From Lizzo to John Legend (Photos)The Wrap’Batwoman’: Wallis Day on Circe’s ‘Deranged’ Warpath and the Key to SavingThe Wrap’Godzilla vs Kong’ Reaches $100 Million in US After Grossing $250,000 inThe WrapJoin a Conversation on ‘Cancel Culture in Comedy’ with Maz Jobrani, SkyeThe WrapAnya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes Join Searchlight’s Dark Comedy ‘The Menu’The WrapAfter ‘Black Widow,’ Kevin Feige Leaves Open the Possibility of OtherThe Wrap’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe Wrap Monday 11 October 2010 8:31 pm whatsapplast_img read more

Annual profits are expected to be almost three times higher than last year at £154.5m. But McCall, a newcomer to the airline industry, won’t have long to bask in the glory: there is a fierce debate raging over the firm’s future – and she will have to pick a side. Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the airline’s founder and largest shareholder, thinks it is time to put the brakes on expansion. He wants easyJet to cap aircraft numbers at 200 (the current total is 196) and only operate routes that are profitable all year round, instead of grounding some aircraft in the winter months. He also wants to reduce the annual target for growth in seats to “GDP plus something” rather than the much-higher 7.5 per cent. Of course, Stelios’ prudence should be heeded, but McCall needs to consider the other shareholders, who make up 64 per cent of the register, as well. There are several reasons why McCall can afford to be more bullish. Having agreed 88 options and purchase rights for new aircraft during the downturn, easyJet is unlikely to expand its fleet at such a low cost in the near future. And while GDP growth will be anaemic in Europe, it can use this to its advantage by winning business from other low-cost carriers and regional players. Operating more medium-haul routes, such as London to Luxor, Egypt, which begins service this month, will also help it grow. Ryanair’s fleet will swell to 299 by 2013. Easyjet needs to catch up.

Since 1984 the proportion of British people under 16 fell by two per cent, and the proportion over 65 increased by one per cent, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Last month the government’s Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) warned: “if left unaddressed, upward pressure on spending from the ageing of the population might well put public sector net debt on an unsustainable upward trajectory.”According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the effect of population ageing on the UK is seven times greater than the harm inflicted by the economic crisis.“Pressures from ageing need to be addressed by reforming pension and health entitlements,” the IMF said. “Postponing required reforms would likely result in larger and more painful adjustment in later years.”The proportion of working age people slightly increased since 1984, the ONS reported. But Patrick Nolan of the think tank Reform warned it will fall in the future. “We’re going to have a decreasing proportion of people to fund services like health, pensions, and elderly care,” he said. “Young people have to pay for their own pensions while also funding pensions and care for today’s elderly, through taxes.”Countries like Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and Chile are reforming public services with mechanisms for people to save for their own retirement costs, said Nolan.However, the situation is worse in countries with lower fertility rates than the UK, the ONS reported. Italy and German have the most aged populations in Europe, it said, while Japan has the most elderly population in the world.The data also showed that one in ten people in the UK were born abroad, a lower rate than observed in most of the other surveyed countries. Switzerland and Ireland were among the countries with a higher proportion of foreign born residents.

Talks between the two companies were ongoing yesterday, with Rio understood to be offering around A$16 a share for Mozambique-focused Riversdale. Riversdale could instead announce a longer suspension from the stock exchange this morning if a deal is not finalised before the markets open, in accordance with Australian trading rules. Rio entered talks with Riversdale at the start of the month, when Rio was said to have offered A$15 a share. The new offer represents a 13.5 per cent premium to Riversdale’s share price before the talks were announced. If Rio succeeds, the purchase will boost its presence in the coking coal market, in which rival BHP Billiton already has a large holding. Meanwhile, Rio was yesterday linked to Russian diamond miner Alrosa, with Russian media reporting that the London-listed giant was looking to spend $400m (£259.9m)?on a 49 per cent stake in the firm. A spokesperson for Rio declined to comment on either company yesterday, while Riversdale also declined to comment. State-owned Alrosa was unavailable for comment. whatsapp Tags: NULL Wednesday 22 December 2010 7:14 pmcenter_img Share Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more
