Carillion said its Middle Eastern construction business had done well and annual earnings were on track to meet hopes. The firm works in Abu Dhabi, Oman and Qatar and hopes to expand into Saudi Arabia.Carillion said its decision in May 2010 to reduce the size of its UK construction business by a third had put it in a strong position to manage reduced capital investment by the government in the next four years.The group said support service revenue would be lower than in 2009 due to the sale of non-core operations, but there was a record number of contract opportunities as local councils tender more services. Carillion also forecast good growth in pre-tax profit in 2010.It said: “The group is well positioned to make further progress in 2011 and to deliver its objectives for medium term growth, namely doubling the revenues of our international businesses, while delivering substantial growth in UK support services.” last_img read more

Three sports betting bills filed in Massachusetts

first_img Regions: US Massachusetts Legal & compliance Three sports betting bills filed in Massachusetts AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Massachusetts took three steps towards legalised sports betting in some form, after a trio of bills were introduced by lawmakers on Wednesday.Separate documents that proposed legalising online and retail betting, allowing only existing casinos to offer betting and the commissioning of a gaming impact study were filed ahead of Friday’s deadline for the 2019 session.The most ambitious and detailed is SD 903 put forward by Sen Brendan Crighton, which would legalise both retail and mobile operations in Massachusetts. The state has a population of 6.9m, and is home to major sports teams such as the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox, as well as daily fantasy giant DraftKings.SD 903 would see sports betting gross revenue taxed at 12.5%, with operators charged an initial fee of $500,000 followed by a $100,000 annual renewal fee. Like New Jersey, licensees would need to be based at in-state establishments.Crighton’s plan includes a ‘bad actor’ clause, with no licence granted to any operator that is currently or previously has been partnered with business involved in any type of illegal offshore betting. It also features rules on advertising, integrity requirements and potential fines for violations of the law.Sen James Welch’s SD 882 is less detailed but outlines plans to enable Massachusetts casinos to begin sports betting operations.The bill includes a 6.75% tax on sports betting revenue for both Category 1 and Category 2 licensees. Category 1 licensees are the state’s largest casinos, with Category 2 establishments having no table games and fewer than 1,250 slot machines.Finally, Sen Bruce Tarr’s SD 908 would not legalise sports betting but would establish an 11-person commission to consider the impact of legal sports betting in Massachusetts.The commission would conduct a comprehensive review of sports betting, including economic development, consumer protection, taxation, and legal and regulatory structures. A report would be filed within 180 days of the passage of Tarr’s act.All three bills are yet to be assigned to a Senate committee to be examined further.Legal sports betting in the state could generate annual gross gaming revenue (GGR) of $408.6m according to figures published by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission early last year.The White Paper on Sports Betting said this was a figure based on both retail and online betting being allowed. The lowest projection, which would see betting only allowed within casinos, would generate GGR of just €127.4m.Last year a bill filed by Sen Eileen Donoghue designed to regulate online gaming, daily fantasy sports and sports betting failed to progress.center_img 17th January 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Bills that could see online and retail sports betting introduced in Massachusetts have been introduced ahead of Friday’s deadline for proposals to be discussed in the 2019 legislative session.

Why I think the AMC Entertainment share price could keep rising

first_imgWhy I think the AMC Entertainment share price could keep rising I have been watching the AMC Entertainment (NYSE: AMC) share price with fascination. Despite the company’s precarious financial position, investors have piled into the stock and its outlook has steadily improved.I think there’s a good chance this could continue, which would support a higher share price.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…AMC Entertainment share price outlookAMC had an incredibly challenging 2020. The pandemic forced the company to close all of its cinemas, and revenues evaporated. This in itself was terrible news, but the group’s problems were compounded by the fact that it entered the pandemic with a lot of debt.As such, over the past year, the world’s largest cinema group has been struggling to stay afloat and survive in a hostile environment.However, the company’s outlook has changed dramatically over the past six months. Since the beginning of December last year, the AMC Entertainment share price has surged in value by nearly 1,300%. It is up 752% over the past 12 months. In my opinion, how the stock got to this stage isn’t important. What is important is what management decides to do with this high share price.Management is trying to capitalise on the increased interest for the stock by raising more money. Towards the end of last week, the company said it had completed a share offering to raise $587m of funding. This announcement came a day after it raised $230m from Mudrick Capital with another share sale.More share sales are planned. In April, management put forward a proposal to issue an additional 500m shares, but it decided not to proceed. Nevertheless, the company is now saying it’ll ask shareholders to authorise the sale of only 25m additional shares. At the current market price, this would yield around $1.4bn of cash for the business.Cash machineAs long as the market remains receptive to these share sales, AMC could continue to raise cash. It can use this money to reduce its debt load and strengthen the overall business. I think this could have a substantial positive impact on the AMC Entertainment share price.Not only with the company benefit from a reduced debt load, but it should also benefit from the economic reopening.That said, even the business itself has warned the current share rally may not be sustainable. “Our current market prices reflect market and trading dynamics unrelated to our underlying business, or macro or industry fundamentals, and we do not know how long these dynamics will last,” AMC said in a statement on Thursday.If the stock starts to slide, management may struggle to raise more cash, and that may destabilise the group’s recovery.Still, as long as current market conditions prevail and management continues to make the most of these conditions, I think the AMC Entertainment share price could continue to rise. As such, I’d buy the stock as a speculative investment, as I’m wary the party could come to an end at any point.

Leidsch Studenten Rugby Gezelschap – Team of the Month (June 2011)

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LSRG AS ONE of the top university teams in the Netherlands, Leidsch Studenten Rugby Gezelschap (LSRG) had every right to think they would be consulted when plans for a new university sports centre were being drawn up in Leiden. After all, so devoted are LSRG to their pitch that they even have a name for it, the Palenpad, and sing about it in their club song.Furthermore, they’ve played in the Leiden BioScience Park for all 50 years of their existence, staying put when the football and hockey clubs chose to go elsewhere.Yet, seduced by the idea of attracting back other field sports with more potential players (and thus more revenue), the authorities have decided to ditch the rugby pitch. “We’re livid, not least as we weren’t allowed to participate in the process,” says fly-half Paul Walenkamp, a 45-year-old Aussie banker who only took up rugby at 34. “I don’t think they understand what we do, don’t see that we’re an established bona fide rugby club with a history and tradition.”Coached by ex-Netherlands coach Iain Krysztofiak and Scot Keith Muirhead, LSRG this term finished fourth in the country’s third tier. March brought two memorable wins: 30-14 at Utrecht, where players sank to their ankles in mud, and 19-5 against Ezrc Oemoemenoe.Canterbury KitbagsAbout 80% of the side are students, including prop mainstays Peter ‘Uncle Fester’ Verkerk, 140kg and not all of it muscle, and Kees ‘Meat’ Hogewoning. Alex Hoyng is a full-back of rare vision while skipper is No 8 Ollie Smart, from Gloucester, who is studying to be a sports teacher.Just back from a tour to Scotland which included a fixture with old friends Currie, LSRG are ready to fight for their piece of turf. Best of British luck to you – and here are 22 kitbags from Canterbury for winning our Team of the Month award.

The client for this project was a cosmopolitan, globetrotting manager of a bridge construction company in his 40s. Having previously lived abroad for many years, he had his mind set on building a two-generation house that could accommodate both his parents and his own family. The client purchased a new plot of land in a prime downtown residential district that proved compatible with the needs and requirements of his business. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsLocated in a commercial district that faces a shopping arcade, the site is surrounded by a mix of both old and new buildings that include old, established storefronts and factories. Since the site is encircled by medium-rise buildings and condominiums, it was difficult to ensure adequate ventilation and natural light within the house. These conditions also ruled out the possibility of creating scenic views “borrowed” from the surroundings. Therefore, the challenges we faced were mostly related to how we could bring light into the house and open the space up to the sky without being overly influenced by external site factors. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe first floor houses the children’s room, while the second storey contains a variety of compact, individual rooms, including spaces for the client’s parents, a bathroom and dressing area. The third floor boasts a number of unique features including a large stairwell and skylight, as well as a generously-sized family room that stands in contrast to the group of individual rooms on the second floor. Another distinctive feature of the third floor is its compact light well. The bedrooms on the fourth storey, which are visually connected to each other through the stairwell, direct one’s attention to the roof garden on the top floor in a natural manner. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe external facade of the building is made up of a combination of rectangular glass blocks, sleek sash windows and skylights that make a perfect match for the uniformly designed interior finished in cool, monotone hues. External wall insulation panels made of reinforced concrete that prioritize comfort and quake resistance were also installed.

The only Tarrant County location opened at Grapevine Mills mall in 2012.“There are a number of factors that determine where we open new stores,” said Camilla Falk, H&M’s head of media relations. “The most important are customer base, best location and best business conditions.”The first store will be located in downtown Fort Worth’s Sundance Square. H&M said it has leased the building of the old Barnes & Noble bookstore between Third and Commerce streets.The 31,000 square-foot store plans to include three floors of men and women’s clothing, as well as a separate “store within a store” section for accessories and sports apparel.Sundance Square has begun transitioning from small boutique stores to popular retailers.

The store plans to carry men and women’s apparel, as well as a collection for children, ranging from newborn to age 14.“We want to expand and make H&M’s collections accessible to a wide range of Fort Worth shoppers,” Falk said. “We see continued great potential in all our existing markets, as well as in markets where we have not yet opened.”As one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, H&M said the brand emphasizes design, quality, affordability and sustainability. H&M values recycling, utilizing water and energy efficiency as initiatives within the brand. It also selects environmentally friendly materials and fabrics.H&M also said the brand prides itself on supporting the local economy and plans to bring jobs to Fort Worth with the new locations.“As a continuously expanding brand, we are constantly searching for new talent to grow with the company,” the retailer said.H&M said there is no set opening date for the Sundance Square store.
