first_img THE problem with failed takeovers is you have to try and pretend they never happened. For several months, the men from the Pru were courting shareholders mercilessly, telling them a $35bn acquisition of Asian insurer AIA was an unmissable opportunity. Sure, management were careful not to talk down the group’s chances as a standalone life insurer, but the message was clear: we’re fighting tooth and nail for this deal because it’s the only way to go. Now investors are supposed to forget everything they were told before the deal fell through, and buy into the former strategy of organic-only growth in Asia. There’s no denying that management put in a commendable performance in the first half, an impressive feat considering the bid distractions. Unsurprisingly, Asia is the star of the show. There, new business sales totalled some £713m, a 36 per cent hike on the same period a year ago. All regions excluding Korea (which has implemented a “value over volume” strategy) reported double digit growth rates, offering an average initial rate of return in excess of 20 per cent within three years. In the UK, it is a different story, with new business up just two per cent; in truth, the British ops are little more than a tired cash cow.Investors should be rating these results more highly, but the truth is Tidjane Thiam is looking like a man who had one big idea: bold expansion in Asia by acquisition. With the former strategy in place, the Pru should find a team more suited to the softly-as-she goes organic approach. A new chairman would be best-placed to start the search.

Only two out of 302 lots remained unsold at the end of the day, while one additional lot is still up for sale at a separate auction in a couple of weeks’ time – a photograph by German visual artist Andreas Gursky, expected to fetch up to £150,000.ROBOT WARSIt was back to the future for a City chum recently, as he turned up to a meeting at Santander’s headquarters in Spain to be greeted by a rather unusual welcome party.Over there, you see, bankers don’t have to pause from their work to complete such mundane tasks as picking up guests from reception. Instead, the bank actually has an army of robots – I kid you not – to welcome visitors and escort them to the office of whoever they came to see.Excited by the news, The Capitalist rang up Santander’s UK operations to find out if the futuristic little chaps are coming to Blighty any time soon, to grace the halls of its Triton Square building. Sadly, they’re not – it looks like we’re going to be stuck in the present day just a little while longer.GET WELL SOONA piece of extremely painful news reaches The Capitalist regarding Tony Pullinger, deputy director general of the Takeover Panel.Poor Pullinger was driving near his home a few weeks back when another car careered into the side of him, leaving him with gruesome-sounding foot injuries, two broken ankles and a broken arm.His fellow Panel deputy director general Charlie Crawshay tells me it’s not clear when Pullinger will be back in the office, though he’s soldiering on regardless with his work load from home (“His brain is working, his red pen is working and the telephone is working,” he says, wryly.)Here’s wishing the valiant fellow all the best for a speedy recovery.ROYAL BUTCHERTo the Guildhall yesterday, where Alderman Michael Bear was appointed as the next Lord Mayor of the City of London, to take up office in mid-November (see our story on page 16). In among the ceremonial huffing and puffing was a heartfelt vote of thanks to current Lord Mayor Nick Anstee from HRH Princess Anne, highlighting the work he has put in over the past year as an ambassador for the financial services sector, often speaking out as something of a lone voice championing the City.Curiously, I’m told the Princess was not actually speaking in her Royal capacity but as a representative of Anstee’s own livery company, of which she has been elected a master – the Worshipful Company of Butchers.WOMEN FROM VENUSTo the Canary Wharf offices of Barclays yesterday evening for the launch of SmartWoman – a new initiative coined by head of investments Barbara-Ann King to get women more interested in personal finance.King has two plans to inspire women – a website,, which aims to get ladies to sign up and become a financial community, advising and welcoming each other – and a glossy magazine, which combines the above with the stories of inspirational women such as Michelle Mone, the founder of Ultimo lingerie and first cover star.“Women run businesses, hold down high-powered jobs and manage household expenses like pros,” King says, “but for some reason they are not engaging in personal finance. If you look at the way financial literature is presented, it’s usually very dry and completely different to the way women communicate – I wanted to test that and see if, when it’s communicated differently, personal finance can become part of women’s lifestyle…”HIGH DRAMAFive minutes of fame late last night for a bunch of legal eagles from Berwin Leighton Paisner, trying their hand at the Hollywood lifestyle.OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration – the litigation lawyers in question, partners Simon Clark and Ian De Freitas, associate director Gavin Llewellyn and IP attorney Louisa Fielding, were all just extras in the film, alongside Tamara Quinn and Sarah Monk, who work for BLP’s freelance lawyer scheme Lawyers on Demand.Still, the lot of them were to be seen popping up all over the BBC1 screening of “French Film”, a comedy directed by Jackie Oudney, from drinking at cocktail parties to coming up an escalator on the Tube.PLAYING THE GAMEKudos for rugby player Ben Cohen, who I hear has been busy trading the financial markets with a spread betting account from City Index, as a novel way of making money for charity. Apparently, Cohen rapidly turned his starting pot of £5,000 into £5,700 – setting the bar high for the next celebrity to have a go, actor and comedian Bill Nighy.

Why I think the Capita share price could be one of the top recovery buys in 2020

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 18th August, 2020 | More on: CPI Why I think the Capita share price could be one of the top recovery buys in 2020 Capita Group (LSE: CPI) has been something of a tragedy for investors, with the share price having lost 95% over the past five years. Who needs a global pandemic to destroy shareholder value? Well, Covid-19 hasn’t helped, and most of what little value was left in Capita shares at the beginning of the year has evaporated in the 2020 crash.Half-year results released Tuesday did nothing to lift investors’ hearts, sending the Capita share price down more than 20% during the morning. As I write, on Tuesday afternoon, the price has pulled back a little. But I’m still sitting here looking at a 15% loss on the day.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…Only eight days previously, Capita had revealed an extension to its contracts with Transport for London. The deal, worth £355m, will see Capita continuing to operate London’s Congestion Charge, Low Emission Zone (LEZ), and Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) from October 2021 to October 2026. There’s some new work included too, so all looks good on that job.As a result, the Capita share price looked like it was turning tentatively upwards. But that’s already history, as Capita told us that profit in the first half has been “significantly affected“. It added: “The delay in the return to growth means we will not generate sustainable cash flow for 1-2 years“. I’ve been bearish on Capita for some time, as the whole outsourcing sector has been reeling from blow after blow. The collapse of Carillion exposed the flimsy financial foundations of the industry. And since then, many competitors have barely been hanging in there. But, you know, I’m really starting to wonder whether Capita might just be a worthwhile recovery candidate.Priced to go bust?On current forecasts, the Capita share price suggests a price-to-earnings ratio for 2021 of just 3.5. Now, a 2021 forecast is especially vague in the current circumstances. But it’s a valuation level that has a lot of safety margin built in. If the Capita share price were to quadruple, it would still only reach around the long-term FTSE 100 average. At today’s Capita share price, I see the company as priced to go bust. So the key question is what does liquidity look like?Net debt stood at £1,096.6m, and that’s actually down from a 31 December figure of £1,353.2m. The company says it has liquidity of £704.1m, which includes £117.3m benefit from a VAT deferral scheme. The firm is undergoing some simplification and restructuring, with disposal proceeds going towards strengthening the balance sheet.Though Capita reported a pre-tax loss of £28.5m, it put its adjusted figure at a profit of £30.1m. That’s way below 2019’s £117.8m, but it’s positive, and I see that as crucial. Adjusted cash from trading operations was put at £193.3m.Capita share price potentialI reckon I’m seeing a company valued based on short-term fears and a year of earnings that are all but wiped out. But I think that misses the long-term recovery potential here. I really think the Capita share price could be significantly higher in a few years’ time.Right now, I’m still held back by my first rule of recovery investing. That’s to hold off until I see convincing signs of recovery really happening in a company’s fundamental performance. Perhaps that’s being unnecessarily cautious. But I’ll be watching Capita closely for such signs. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Championship blog: Round 7 round-up

first_img The Greene King IPA Championship: Here’s you’re next instalment from England’s competitive second tierBy Richard GraingerIt was seventh heaven for London Welsh at the Kassam Stadium on Sunday as Bristol’s bubble burst, leaving the Exiles seven from seven and six points clear at the top of the GKIPA Championship table.London Welsh 22, Bristol 7There is a lot of Championship rugby to be played before April 26th but London Welsh are looking a good bet to bounce back into the Aviva Premiership at the first attempt.In a scrappy game at the Kassam, Exiles’ scrum half Alex Davies went over from a scrum to give the hosts an early lead before Bristol hooker Ross Johnston replied with a short-range rumble.Then Seb Stegmann raced clear when Gordon Ross picked off a pass from Ruki Tipuna to give the hosts a 14-7 interval advantage.Trundling on: Ollie Stedman trucks forward for WelshDavies stretched the lead with a penalty but Welsh were forced to work hard to in defence when Sonny Parker saw yellow and Bristol upped their game.“We had a lot of possession and territory,” said Bristol Director of Rugby Andy Robinson, “but ultimately a couple of set-pieces didn’t go our way and we didn’t take our opportunities. Credit to London Welsh for the way that they defended. They took their chances well.”Having survived Bristol’s one-man advantage, Exiles had the final word with a late try from Ollie Stedman.Mose move towards middleMoseley 29, Nottingham 15Two wins on the bounce have re-booted Moseley’s season and leave them a couple of wins away from sixth place.The Birmingham-based outfit had 22 year-old replacement fly-half Caolan Ryan, who kicked 19 points, to thank for the win.Moseley head coach Kevin Maggs thought Ryan was outstanding: “He’s a very good player. He’s come in today and done a great job for us.”Anthony Carter and Adam Parkins crossed for the hosts while Nottingham’s points all came from the boot of Matthew Jarvis.Trailfinders still in search of a winning path LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS <> at Sandy Park on September 15, 2013 in Exeter, England. Pick of round eightOn Saturday London Scottish welcome Leeds to Richmond (12.30ko) and Rotherham travel to Bristol for a 3pm kick-off on Sunday. Ealing Trailfinders 5, Plymouth Albion 20A 77th minute try from Josh Elliott was not enough for Ealing to begin to find the trail that will lead them from the foot of the GKIPA Championship.But Ealing will take heart that the crowd of around 500 who made the trek to Vallis Way on Friday night were treated to a vastly improved defensive display which saw the hosts go down by two tries to one.Despite still being pointless in the division, Ealing are only a couple of wins from worrying Jersey and Nottingham.Jersey’s lone scorer: Niall O’ConnorLondon Scottish 29, Jersey 3Jersey’s only points at the Athletic Ground on Sunday came in the second minute when Niall O’Connor put the islanders ahead with a penalty. Thereafter it was largely one-way traffic and the Exiles dominated the encounter, notching a bonus point with two tries from Mark Bright to add to a touchdown from PJ Gidlow and an interception try from prolific winger Miles Mantella.Guess that’s why they call it the BluesCornish Pirates 16, Bedford Blues 13There were more blues for Bedford on Sunday at the Mennaye Field when they were unable to convert second-half pressure into points and allowed the Pirates to hold onto a slender second half lead.It was one try a-piece, with Darren Fearn crossing for the Blues, trailing by ten points at the time, in reply to Tom Kessell’s earlier try for the Pirates.Leeds Carnegie 19, Rotherham 10Leeds did themselves and London Welsh, who won narrowly at Headingley last Sunday, a massive favour by defeating high-flying Rotherham in this Yorkshire derby on Sunday.Alex Lozowski kicked four penalties and converted David Doherty’s first half try to seal the win over an under-strength Titan side forced to re-organise following late injuries.Rotherham were awarded a penalty try, which Juan Pablo Socino converted to add to an earlier penalty.last_img read more

The Al-Khoei Foundation promotes an Islam of peace and tolerance, as does Ayatollah Sistani.Whalon also invited Bishop Michel Dubost, interreligious officer for the [Roman Catholic] Bishops’ Conference of France, and Pastor François Clavairoly, president of the Protestant Federation of France. The new Ambassador of Iraq, His Excellency Haidar Nasir, was also in attendance, as well as a delegation from the Al-Khoei Foundation.The visit built on foundations laid by Whalon as an early promoter and participant of the Christian-Muslim summits. During the first summit, he met and befriended Ayatollah Ahmad Iravani, head of the Shi’a delegation. This led to a friendship with the leader of the Al-Khoei Foundation in Paris, Sheikh Ismael Al Khalik. Most recently, Whalon facilitated an invitation for Shi’a and Sunni imams from Paris to attend the funeral of the murdered Roman Catholic priest, Father Jacques Hamel, as guests of the Archdiocese of Rouen on Aug. 2, along with himself as the Episcopal (Anglican) Bishop in Europe.The conversation with Shahrastani concerned issues of Christian-Muslim relations in the Middle East and Europe. In the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election, the Muslim attendees expressed hope that it would not have adverse effects on American Muslims. Whalon replied that the Episcopal Church would do all in its power to prevent persecution of Muslims in America. He also reminded the group that he had asked the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe to pray for Ayatollah Sistani, as he has undertaken the difficult and dangerous task of working for peace between Christians and Muslims, and indeed, among Muslims themselves.As the meeting ended, Shahrastani invited both Clavairoly and Whalon to Iran. Whalon replied that he had already accepted the invitation of the Chaldean Archbishop of Teheran, Ramzi Garmou, to visit Iran once again in January, but both men agreed they would try to go together and accept the hospitality of Shahrastani as well. A possible visit to the holy cities of Qom and Najaf was also discussed.After the meeting, members of the Al-Khoei Foundation offered a meal to Whalon and his guests. Finally, they shared their Iranian and Afghan delicacies with the women of the cathedral, who were setting up their annual Christmas bazaar.

Mission trip life changing for Dorrill

first_img When Dorrill stepped off the plane in America’s “Last Frontier,” he was immediately in awe of how small he was “in God’s creation.”“As we worked as a team, we began to learn and to grow as a group,” he said. “I was so impressed by one member of the team, Matthew Ellis, whose senior trip was the mission trip. For a young person to give up a trip with his friends to do something for others was a real testimony to his faith.”Dorrill was a part of a work team that painted a couple of structures that were used by missionaries to Alaska. Other members of the mission team taught Bible school to children in the interior. As the worked and as they shared their faith with the people of Alaska, Dorrill began to find the answer to the question he had so often asked himself, “What can one person do?”“I realized that if one person on the team had not done what they did that we would not have been able to accomplish all we did,” he said.“One person can make a difference. Just like the things that you Rotarians do. Each one of you is making a difference.”Helping others and being a part of a team with a greater purpose was a humbling experience for Dorrill. Print Article If it had not been for the encouragement of his wife, Jason Dorrill probably would not have stepped out of his comfort zone and done what he did.Lauri Dorrill realized that her husband would benefit from participating in the Interact Ministries mission trip to Alaska and that he had much to contribute. With her support and encouragement, he signed on.“The mission trip was a life changing experience for me,” Dorrill told the members of the Brundidge Rotary Club Wednesday. “Before we left, I kept wondering what could I, as one person, do that would make a difference. I wasn’t sure that there was anything I could do that would make a difference.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder You Might Like ‘Know Your Land’ workshop successful The “Know Your Land” workshop on Aug. 21 exceeded all expectations in that it was the most well attended of… read more Latest Stories The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, August 26, 2009 The mission trip gave him the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.It also made him more aware of God’s great and wonderful creation.“Mount McKinley is usually covered with clouds but we were blessed to see it three times,” he said.“It was an incredible sight.”The team visited Denali National Forest and, as Dorrill walked among the rocks, one almost jumped out at him.“There were a lot of similar rocks, the dark and white, but there was this one – actually two rocks in one – and I knew it was meant for me,” he said.A white vein ran through the rock on both side and formed the image of a cross.“I don’t know if I was supposed to keep it or not, but I did,” Dorrill said.For Dorrill, the mission trip to Alaska was a “blessing from God.”“It changed the way that I feel about things and it made me know that we can all make a difference in the lives of others.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Celebrity chancellors under threat

first_imgGovernment ministers have been urged to encourage the replacement of celebrity university chancellors with professional fundraisers. The initiative is a result of new recommendations from the Government’s task force on student endowments, which states that chancellors should be paid, providing they spend several days a week raising money for their university. The Government is desperate for British universities to emulate their American counterparts by becoming effective fundraisers. Chris Patten, the current Oxford Chancellor, who spends the majority of his time working at the European Commission, is unlikely to see his job change despite the proposals. Then right to vote in the election for the life-long post of Oxford Chancellor is extended to Oxford graduates only, meaning the Government has no say in the matter. A University spokeswoman informed Cherwell, “It is unrealistic for a university to tie its Chancellor down to two or three days a week fundraising. Currently money is raised through a University bursary initiative which gives sufficient help to poorer students.”ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more
