Poundland’s quids in with 11.7 per cent rise in profits

first_img Show Comments ▼ Emma Haslett Shares in discount retailer Poundland edged 3.7 per cent higher to just under 314p after it posted a 11.7 per cent rise in pre-tax profits, which hit £9.3m in the six months to the end of September.Sales rose 15 per cent to £528.2m, while net debt fell 83 per cent to £4.4m, as it announced an interim dividend of 1.5p. The retailer floated in London in March at 300p per share, and remains one of the few high-profile IPOs in 2014 whose shares have remained above offer price. However, shortly after it listed, shares peaked at just over 400p, before sliding back down. Poundland said it had opened 28 new stores during the period, increasing its offering to 556 stores, and was on track to open another 60 in its full year. It also opened its first Dealz store in Spain, and was on track to open a total of 10 by the end of 2016.Jim McCarthy, the company’s chief executive, said international expansion plans were “well underway”.As the structural changes in UK retail continue to redraw the landscape, we are building our reputation for offering value… and substantially broadening our appeal.While our full year outcome, as always, is dependent on delivering a good Christmas for our customers, I remain confident of further progress throughout the year.Shorecap analyst Darren Shirley said Poundland is a “retail winner in the medium-long term”. “Poundland is basically ungeared and its strong balance sheet is a major virtue in our view”.

First Libor rate-fixing battle as Icap rejects EU’s €15m fine

first_img Tags: Company ICAP Libor rate-fixing scandal First Libor rate-fixing battle as Icap rejects EU’s €15m fine Share whatsapp Wednesday 4 February 2015 8:14 pm Express KCS center_img Show Comments ▼ Brokerage Icap has become the first City institution to challenge a fine for attempted Libor manipulation, yesterday vowing to battle the European Commission.The EC issued the firm with a €14.9m (£11.2m) fine, arguing that Icap broke competition rules “by facilitating several cartels in the sector of yen interest rate derivatives.”Icap was fined £54m in 2013 by US and UK regulators after some of its former staff helped bank traders try to fiddle the key interbank interest rate benchmark.Chief executive Michael Spencer apologised at the time.However, this time the interdealer broker believes it has no case to answer, and that there is no evidence against it.“Icap does not accept the EC’s decision, which it believes is wrong both in fact and in law. This is a regulatory matter that has already been settled,” the firm said in a statement.“It is not a competition issue, and the EC has presented no evidence that Icap facilitated a competition law violation. Icap will be challenging this decision at appeal in the European Courts.” whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comLivestlyThe Best Redhead Actresses, RankedLivestlyNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableySenior Living | Search AdsSenior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look At The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsBeach RaiderMom Belly Keeps Growing, Doctor Sees Scan And Calls CopsBeach RaiderMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDlast_img read more

Development of Resort Areas Highlighted

first_imgRelatedDevelopment of Resort Areas Highlighted RelatedDevelopment of Resort Areas Highlighted FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Chairman of the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo), Audrey Marks, has said that much emphasis was being placed on the development of the resort areas, in a bid to have tourism become the driving industry for economic growth.In her presentation to delegates at the 30th annual conference on the Caribbean Basin, held in Miami this week, Miss Marks said that care would be taken to ensure that the development was compatible with environmental management.Speaking at the workshop on ‘Disaster Responsiveness and Business Continuity’, the Chairman also spoke of the massive expansion programme being undertaken to improve and increase facilities in the Kingston harbour, the world’s seventh largest natural harbour.Considered a strategically placed regional port, it was also ranked as the 54th port in the world for business capacity, she said, and highlighted the inclusion of public and private sector collaboration and co-operation as part of a national disaster management strategy as well as the need for greater focus on planning for sustainable development by both sectors in development projects.Citing the island’s devastation after Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 and more recently in 2004 after Hurricane Ivan, Miss Marks said that the national damage was evident in a number of sectors, including agriculture and livestock and tourism as well as the impact on infrastructure, housing and personal property.Additionally, other disasters in 2005 throughout the region, showed the important link between disaster planning and preparedness and economies, and how this related to business recovery as well as national recovery, she added.While this is of global concern, “small islands like ours are constantly faced with the challenge of how to effectively balance economic development with environmental protection”, Miss Marks said.In an effort to plan the effectiveness of the mitigation stage, she proposed several factors that would benefit governments and the business community.She stressed that as a continuing strategy, the business community should be more aware of overall management as this was not solely the responsibility of government, and simultaneously, greater collaboration between national and regional disaster management agencies should be encouraged.Regional forums like the conference, she suggested, could be an avenue to continue emphasizing the importance of sharing experiences and practices in disaster management with governments and business interests.She also pointed to the enforcement of stricter national measures to ensure environmental protection, especially in areas where business entities were dependent on industries such as tourism, agriculture and natural resources.In this regard, Miss Marks said that in Jamaica, governmental as well as non-governmental agencies, such as the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) and TPDCo were already playing an active role in the development of business continuity planning, for example, in the tourist industry.The three-day conference was hosted by the Caribbean Central America Action (CCAA) Committee.

Looks like Dodge’s Demon might have AWD, 912 lb.-ft. of torque

The big news is on the license plate. The photoshopped plate reads #[email protected] And that could mean it makes 2,756 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 rpm at each of its four wheels. Does that sound ludicrous? Let me explain. True mechanical torque – what comes out to the wheels – is calculated by engine torque multiplied by gear ratio, multiplied again by final drive ratio and divided by the amount of drive wheels. Now here’s the interesting bit: The “normal” Hellcat, which has 650 lb.-ft. of torque from its 6.2-litre supercharged V8, puts out 4,010 lb.-ft. to the rear wheels. (2,005 lb.-ft. per wheel) It seems very unlikely that this new Demon will make less power than a Hellcat, so if we assume this thing has the same gear and axle ratios as a Hellcat, then with 2,756 lb.-ft. going to both drive axles, this could have 912 lb.-ft. of torque at the crank if we assume it has a 50/50 torque split. Of course, it’s far more likely that it will mirror the Challnger GTs 62/38 torque split which would put it on target for about 750-lb.-ft. Could it be possible? Given the lengths Dodge seems to be willing to go with these Hellcat versions, we’re sure it’ll be newsworthy and record breaking. What a time to be alive. The car is now 89-mm wider thanks to large fender flares on all four wheels. The choice for wide 315-mm front tires nets Dodge the record for widest front tires on a production car – and the choice of a drag radial up front also hints at it being an AWD car. Drag radials like to wander on the highway and you don’t need them on the front axle unless you have the front wheels driven. Plus, Dodge just released an AWD version of its V6-powered Challenger, so the hardware is already available.  Trending in Canada ‹ Previous Next › If all this is true, then the Demon’s rear end in this photo is all the competition is going to see at the local dragstrip.  center_img COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information.

Ram announces Mopar accessories for the 702-horsepower TRX

first_img COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS After announcing it’s offering the “quickest, fastest and most powerful pickup truck in the world,” Ram will now let you put some icing on that cake with more than 100 Mopar accessories for the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.The TRX features a supercharged 6.2-L Hemi V8, making 702 horsepower that takes it from zero to 96 km/h in 4.5 seconds, and with a top speed of 190 km/h.It includes integrated fender flares that increase body width by 203 mm, and with 18-inch wheels and 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory all-terrain tires. The accessories are factory-engineered and factory-backed, and will be available through dealers. They’re not cheap, but they are going on a truck that starts at $93,995, after all.So what should you get? Here’s what Ram recommends, along with the Canadian prices.RamBar ($1,730) — This bar mounts in the truck bed’s stake pockets and includes tie-downs for storage, and is engineered to work with Mopar’s off-road LED lights.Those LED Lights ($861) — Meant specifically for the RamBar, this gets you a set of five-inch LED off-road lights, each rated at 4,800 lumens, to see what’s coming up next on the trail.Bed-Mounted Spare Tire Carrier ($1,540) — Made of thick-gauge tubular steel, this carrier holds one 37-inch spare tire and wheel, and can be removed if you need to use the bed for carrying cargo.Off-Road Rock Rails ($1,845) and Off-Road Running Boards ($1,185) — Like all Ram 1500s, the TRX is tall, and you’ll want these for getting in and out. If you want to reach into the bed, you’ll also want the Bed Step ($571), which retracts below the bumper when not in use.Beadlock-Capable Wheel Rings ($297) — Nothing looks tougher than a beadlock, and you’re going to want these for your TRX. You know what it’ll do, but it’s even better when it absolutely looks the part as well.LISTEN: This week on our Plugged In podcast, we talk all things Polestar with North American boss First Look: 2022 Lexus NX The sport-cute’s looks have been softened, but its powertrains and infotainment offerings have been sharpened Trending in Canada See More Videos The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information.

US trade groups partner to boost 3.5GHz band

first_imgHome US trade groups partner to boost 3.5GHz band Diana is Mobile World Live’s US Editor, reporting on infrastructure and spectrum rollouts, regulatory issues, and other carrier news from the US market. Diana came to GSMA from her former role as Editor of Wireless Week and CED Magazine, digital-only… Read more The CBRS Alliance and Small Cell Forum formed a new partnership which aims to accelerate commercialisation of the shared 3.5GHz band in the US.Specifically, the pair will collaborate on developing products which can host traffic from different operators, defining the indoor architecture required for network densification and exploring international possibilities for shared spectrum. The groups will also align technical specification requirements and testing results of 3.5GHz equipment for both indoor and neutral host use cases.The Small Cell Forum recently forecast unlicensed and shared spectrum could account for up to 36 per cent of small cell deployments by 2022.Alan Ewing, executive director of the CBRS Alliance, said in a statement: “As the industry shifts to focus on network densification, we expect that small cells will be a key driver for the adoption of 4G and 5G solutions in the 3.5GHz band.”He added the two groups can offer operators and vendors “a wealth of expertise that will raise awareness for the opportunities that shared spectrum offers”.The partnership comes as the 3.5GHz ecosystem pushes toward commercial launches in Q3 2019. Deployments were previously expected to begin in Q4 2018, but were delayed in part by a 35-day US government shutdown in late 2018 and early 2019 which halted federal review of key 3.5GHz systems and equipment.A range of players have expressed interest in the band, including AT&T, Amazon, T-Mobile US and Verizon.
