Aryzta claims it has taken first steps in turnaround

first_imgAryzta has reported a 0.7% hike in organic revenue in the past six months – and claimed it has made its first step towards a turnaround.The company has been through a turbulent period recently that has included a shake-up of its senior management and the sale of its Cloverhill, La Rousse and Signature Flatbreads businesses.Following a business review, the company developed a plan focused on the frozen bakery market that includes the Project Renew cost reduction programme, designed to bring €200m (£177m) in savings over a three-year period. It also recently completed a €740m (£630m) capital raise.In its financial results for the six months ended 31 January 2019, the company today (12 March) said Project Renew had been delivering the expected level of savings, although underlying net profit was down 22.5% year on year to €39.5m (£33.7m), with underlying EBITDA down 6% to €151.6m (£129.4m).Organic revenue from its European business was up 1.9%, with North America organic revenue down 1.8% and rest of world organic revenue up 6.7%.“The result in H1 2019 is consistent with our focus on stability,” said Aryzta chief executive officer Kevin Toland. “This performance represents a first step towards the delivery of our multi-year turnaround commitment.”“We are developing a unified, cohesive group with a singular focus on our core strengths within a growing frozen B2B bakery market. Project Renew will enhance both our operating efficiency and our competitive position and in H1 2019 already delivered the expected level of savings.”last_img read more

What Did NPH & Andrew Rannells Leave Behind for Hedwig’s Michael C. Hall?

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 13, 2015 Hedwig and the Angry Inch View Comments Related Shows Michael C. Hall de-glittered himself (which, apparently, is a lot harder than it sounds) to stop by Late Night and chat with Seth Meyers about his latest stint in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. As one would expect, taking on this crazy role has created a sisterhood between Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells and Hall. Rannells left behind some champagne, facial products and the ultimate glitter remover: scotch tape. Harris emailed Hall with pointers. But what’s the real secret to nailing those high-heeled jumps? “I never rehearsed out of heels,” says Hall. “Or fishnets, or a bra.” That’s dedication. You can catch him as Hedwig at the Belasco Theatre through January 4, 2015.last_img read more

In Ukraine, Gareth Bale’s Time Finally Comes

first_imgNANAfter a season dominated by injuries and disappointment at dropping down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu, Gareth Bale showed in Kiev, Ukraine, why he was once the most expensive player in the world to win a third consecutive Champions League final for Real Madrid.Bale came off the bench to score twice, including a stunning overhead kick with his first meaningful touch, as Real ran out 3-1 winners over Liverpool to secure a 13th European Cup in Kiev. Just as he had for last season’s final in his native Cardiff, Bale had been left on the sidelines from the start despite a stunning end to the season having scored four times in his previous three games.And the Welshman didn’t waste any time in making an impact with an acrobatic bicycle kick that will live long in the memory as it looped over the helpless Loris Karius, on a miserable night for the German keeper.Karius had been at fault for Karim Benzema’s opener just after half-time, and he then spilled Bale’s 30-yard strike into his own net seven minutes from time to seal Liverpool’s fate.Bale has now won four Champions League winner’s medals in five seasons since moving to Madrid.Just as he had for last season’s final in his native Cardiff, Bale had been left on the sidelines from the start despite a stunning end to the season having scored four times in his previous three games. And the Welshman didn’t waste any time in making an impact with an acrobatic bicycle kick that will live long in the memory as it looped over the helpless Loris Karius, on a miserable night for the German keeper.And his wonder strike brought back memories of Zidane’s own magnificent volleyed winner to win Madrid the Champions League against Bayer Leverkusen at Hampden Park in 2002.That even one of the greatest players of all-time reacted with such wonder at Bale’s brilliance on the touchline was testament to a strike worthy of winning any final.It may also ensure that Bale’s future lies in the Spanish capital rather than returning to the Premier League this summer frustrated by his lack of opportunities in the biggest games.Bale started just one of Real’s seven knockout matches in the Champions League. In the one he did, he was hooked at half-time by Zidane as Juventus threatened to come back from a 3-0 first-leg deficit at the Bernabeu in the second leg of the quarter-finals.A host of injuries have prevented Bale from maximising his potential in Madrid.A recurring calf problem saw him sidelined for two months early in the campaign and he struggled to regain Zidane’s confidence even after returning to fitness just before the turn of the year.However, the signs were there in recent weeks that Bale was rediscovering the form that enticed Real to pay Tottenham Hotspur a then-world record 91 million euros in 2013.For the first time since a stunning solo run and finish to win the Copa del Rey in his debut Real season, Bale scored in an El Clasico against Barcelona earlier this month.Two more thumping finishes against Celta Vigo followed a week later and he also ended the domestic season by netting at Villarreal to make the strongest case possible to Zidane for a start in Kiev.It still wasn’t enough, but Bale’s case going forward will be far harder to ignore.An early shoulder injury robbed Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah the opportunity to bolster his case as a Ballon d’Or successor to Cristiano Ronaldo.For once in the final, it wasn’t the Portuguese who made the difference for Real.When Bale was signed many saw him as the future king at the Bernabeu once Ronaldo’s powers began to wane.It hasn’t always been an easy ride, but Bale’s time finally came in Kiev.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Chelsea snub Lukaku bid but may let Lampard go for free – reports

first_imgDanish club FC Copenhagen have had an offer to take striker Romelu Lukaku on loan rejected by Chelsea, according to The People.The same newspaper also reports that Chelsea have refused to let defender Gary Cahill play for Britain at this summer’s Olympics, while Daniel Sturridge has been given permission.Boss Roberto Di Matteo and the club’s top brass are said to have insisted that Cahill, who missed Euro 2012 because of a broken jaw, must complete a full pre-season with them.The Mail on Sunday say LA Galaxy are ready to make a fresh move to prise Frank Lampard away from Chelsea.The People claim Lampard has been offered a two-year deal worth £13m by the MLS outfit, is seriously considering the move and may even be allowed to leave on a free transfer to save the £9m he will apparently be paid in the final year of his Blues contract.Lampard, 34, has repeatedly dismissed speculation about his future and insisted he intends to stay at Stamford Bridge.The People also say QPR will ask Tottenham if they can take David Bentley on loan, and that Fulham are in talks to sign Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Sivok, who is a free agent after leaving Turkish club Besiktas.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgLehlogonolo Msuma is representing South Africa at the Broadcom Masters (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) International programme in the US for her research into marula seedlings.Lehlogonolo “Nolo” Msuma is in the US from 14 to 19 May to take part in the Broadcom Masters (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) International programme. (Image: Bush Babies Environmental Education, Facebook)Compiled by Priya PitamberA young South African scientist is in the US participating in the Broadcom Masters (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) International programme.Thirteen-year-old Lehlogonolo “Nolo” Msuma’s inquiring mind led her to question why there were only old marula trees in her community, in Phalaborwa in Limpopo.“We only know that big trees are being eaten by elephants, goats, cows and wanted to know [what] the small seedlings of marula were being eaten by; I found out that they were being eaten by rodents,” she told the national broadcaster, the SABC.“Marula trees, which are seeing a decline worldwide, are important for Nolo’s community because they provide fruit and are home to many birds as well as larger animals,” reads the Broadcom Masters Facebook page.Nolo is in Los Angeles from 14 to 19 May “for a week of fun and engaging hands-on science and engineering activities”.Research and findingsNolo said she found that the Bushbuck gabble and the Namaqua rock rat were eating the marula seedlings daily.In her project, she outlines various ways in which this can be curbed to allow the trees to grow.The fruit from the tree is used in many ways in her community: to ferment alcohol, and to make soap and jam.Nolo would like to become an environmental scientist because she believes South Africa can make positive contributions to global research.The programmeAccording to the Broadcom Masters International website, each delegate is chosen for “their excellence in science, engineering and leadership”.“They are rising stars who come together to represent their nations for this international exchange.”Participants come from Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Puerto Rico and many more countries.“There is a sense of urgency to inspire more young people to become the scientists and engineers of the future,” said Paula Golden, president of the Broadcom Foundation, speaking about the national leg of the programme in the US.“Our quality of life depends upon solving the grand challenges in health care, transportation, communication, environmental protection and sustainability.”About NoloNolo is a Grade 8 pupil at Gerson Ntjie High School and an ambassador for the Bush Babies Environmental Programme.School principal Vivian Kganyago said she hoped other students would follow in Nolo’s footsteps, despite the school not having a lab in which to work. “I hope Gerson will be known not only provincially, nationally but internationally,” she said.See Nolo speak ahead of her departure to the US:Other than an interest in environmental science, she “enjoys reading, writing poetry, singing, and researching the latest fashion trends”, reads the Broadcom Masters Facebook page.Sources: Broadcom Masters, SABCWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
