The total cost of the volcanic ash disruption is now expected to be £82m compared with the company’s previous forecast of £60m to £80m, he added.The company said its strategy will include concentrating in more upmarket holiday destinations on countries including Turkey. Four or five-star hotels account for more than 40 per cent of its business. That proportion will rise to between 54 per cent and 57 per cent next year, Fontenla-Novoa said.

De La Rue rejected the approach from its French rival in December. De La Rue said in July there had been production problems at one of its paper factories.

NHS reveals plans for first childrens’ gambling clinic

first_img NHS England’s chief executive has resurrected calls for a mandatory levy on gambling operators as plans for the UK’s first gambling clinic for children were unveiled.Simon Stevens said operators are spending just a “fraction” of their revenue on assistance for those who develop gambling addictions and suggested further discussion over them being forced to do more.The National Problem Gambling Clinic in London, which opened in 2008, will now offer specialist help for children and young people aged 13 to 25 as part of an expansion which will also ramp up treatment for adults.It is being opened as part the NHS Long Term Plan, amid concerns that – according to Gambling Commission figures – 55,000 children may have a gambling problem while 450,000 are gambling regularly.Stevens contrasted the amount spent by gambling operators on advertising compared with their contributions to assistance for gambling problems.“This action shows just how seriously the NHS takes the threat of gambling addiction, even in young people, but we need to be clear – tackling mental ill health caused by addiction is everyone’s responsibility – especially those firms that directly contribute to the problem,” Stevens said.“This is an industry that splashes £1.5bn on marketing and advertising campaigns, much of it now pumped out online and through social media, but it has been spending just a fraction of that helping customers and their families deal with the direct consequences of addiction.“The sums just don’t add up and that is why as well as voluntary action it makes sense to hold open the possibility of a mandatory levy if experience shows that’s what’s needed,” he continued. “A levy to fund evidence-based NHS treatment, research and education can substantially increase the money available, so that taxpayers and the NHS are not left to pick up a huge tab.”Up to 14 new NHS clinics are being opened as part of the NHS Long Term Plan – starting with the NHS Northern Gambling Service in Leeds this summer, followed by centres in Manchester and Sunderland.NHS England said the development of new clinics should give people with gambling problems, faster access to specialist, evidence-based services.The services will see psychiatrists and clinical psychologists working with patients whose lives are being impacted by severe or complex issues with gambling. Once referred to a clinic, psychiatrists and clinical psychologists will work with patients who could have a range of complex gambling related difficulties, including mental health difficulties and a lengthy period of problem gambling with little or no abstinence.Stevens’ call comes days after five of the UK’s leading sports betting operators voluntarily agreed to increase funding for problem gambling treatment and safer gambling.William Hill, Ladbrokes Coral owner GVC Holdings, Flutter Entertainment (formerly Paddy Power Betfair), The Stars Group-owned Sky Betting & Gaming and bet365 have agreed to increase their voluntary contribution from 0.1% to 1% of gross gaming yield in no more than five years.As a result of the funding increase, voluntary levy will eventually raise £100m (€112.4m/$126.0m) each year for charities that provide treatment and support for those suffering from gambling-related harm. Last year, money raised through the levy fell short of its £10m target.In April, gambling charity GambleAware called for UK operators to provide more financial support for its problem gambling treatment efforts after industry funding failed to meet its 2018-19 target. Voluntary donations from the industry during the 12 months to March 31, 2019 amounted to £9.6m, short of the £10m that trustees of the charity had asked of the market.Speaking about the new clinic for children, Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright said: “Protecting people, and particularly children, from gambling-related harm is vital. I have seen first hand the important work that these specialist clinics do and I am pleased that the NHS is expanding its support for young people.“The gambling industry must be socially responsible and take all reasonable steps to keep people safe, including by increasing funding for research, education and treatment. My department is working with the industry towards a strong package of measures to ensure vulnerable people are protected.” Legal & compliance Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter NHS England’s chief executive has resurrected calls for a mandatory levy on gambling operators as plans for the UK’s first gambling clinic for children were unveiled.center_img NHS reveals plans for first childrens’ gambling clinic Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 24th June 2019 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Why I rate the Saga share price as a buy

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Why I rate the Saga share price as a buy The Saga (LSE: SAGA) share price has been on a roll recently. After the stock plunged to an all-time low of 33p per share in June last year, it has since risen by around a quarter as investor sentiment has improved.It seems that this trend will continue.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…Growth strugglesSaga’s growth vanished after the company decided to reorganise its insurance business in 2017. Over the next two years, management worked flat out to try to restore investor confidence as well as attract consumers back to the brand.The firm launched a new savings products and ploughed money into its cruise business, which is just getting off the ground. Recent trading updates from the business show that these efforts are now starting to pay off.The insurance broking business, which caused all the trouble initially, is starting to claw back customer loyalty. Customer retention for Saga’s home and motor insurance division increased to 75% between August and the end of January 2020, up around 2% year-on-year.Meanwhile, 57% of customers came to the group for insurance products directly rather than 50% in January last year. This should help Saga’s margins. It means the company pays less commission to other brokers.The growing travel business is complementing the recovery in insurance.Saga launched its first cruise ship last year, and management expects the vessel to generate EBITDA of £20m in its first six months of operation. Another is on order for August 2020.Management believes both of these ships can generate up to £40m each in EBITDA over the long run.UndervaluedThese numbers show that while Saga is not back where it was just yet, the business has stabilised. That’s good news for the stock price going forward.Indeed, the current valuation of the stock seems to suggest that the market is sceptical of Saga’s growth potential. The stock is currently dealing at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 5.4.However, now that the company has stemmed the bleeding, it should start to attract a higher valuation.The rest of the market is trading at an average P/E of 13. On that basis, the Saga share price seems to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.In addition to the stock’s low valuation, it also supports a dividend yield of 9.8%. The payout is covered twice by earnings per share, which suggests that it is here to stay in the near term.Risk vs rewardAll of the above implies that the risk-reward ratio of investing in Saga at current levels is attractive. The stock appears undervalued, and investors who buy the shares today will be paid to wait for the recovery.Luckily, it looks as if the company’s recovery is already well under way. Over the next 12 to 24 months, the earnings from the cruise ship business should start to lift the bottom line, and any further improvement at the insurance arm will only add to the positive sentiment.

I think there are many FTSE 100 bargains to be had after the recent stock market crash. Indeed, some of the market’s top blue-chip stocks appear oversold after recent declines. Buying these businesses while they trade at low levels could lead to considerable profits. I think retailer Next (LSE: NXT) is the perfect example. I have long been a fan of this business and its management. The company has succeeded in the navigating the changing retail environment over the past few years. By investing hundreds of millions of pounds in its online retail operation, the group was able to stay ahead of the competition. This investment also put the business in an excellent position to weather the coronavirus crisis. 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…Stock market crash concernsEarlier this year, when retailers across the country were asked to shut to try and stem the spread of the virus, Next closed down the majority its operations. However, the company was soon able to restart its online business, although it had to restrict capacity initially. Still, despite these bumps, the firm’s latest trading update reveals that performance has been better than expected in 2020. “The company’s sales performance through the pandemic has been more resilient than we expected,” its latest update stated. Following this performance, management expects the group to earn nearly £300m in pre-tax profit this year, against the previous forecast of £195m. All of the above suggests to me that one could benefit from buying this FTSE 100 share after the recent stock market crash. FTSE 100 recovery playAs well as Next, I think it could also be worth taking a closer look at Intercontinental Hotels (LSE: IHG). The owner of the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn brands has not seen the same sort of recovery as its FTSE 100 peer. The company’s revenue per available room (revpar) fell 53% year-on-year for the three months to the end of September. As coronavirus infections start to spread again, the hotels group faces an uncertain future. Management has warned that revenue could remain depressed for some time. However, I’m optimistic about the organisation’s long-term potential.As one of the largest hotel operators in the world, the FTSE 100 giant has substantial economies of scale. The business also maintains a strong balance sheet with billions of dollars of liquidity available. These factors should help it make the most of the recovery when it arrives. At the same time, IHG may be able to capture market share as smaller operators may not be able to withstand the continued uncertainty. As such, I reckon buying the company today could be a sensible decision while it continues to trade at a low-level following the recent stock market crash. Over the next few years, as the global hotel market recovers, one may benefit from substantial capital gains and income returns from this sector leader. last_img read more

Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves | Friday, 19th February, 2021 | More on: RR center_img The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The Rolls-Royce (LON: RR) share price recently jumped back above 100p, after falling below this crucial level at the end of January. This is important because traders and investors tend to look at crucial levels like this to determine a stock’s momentum. A rising price can encourage more buyers, while a falling price can encourage more sellers. From the perspective of a long-term investor, this might not seem that important. However, a rising stock price can make it easier for a company to raise money from its investors. A falling stock price can significantly impact a firm’s ability to raise money, which may jeopardise its future. 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…Even though Rolls recently upgraded its profit forecasts for the year ahead, it’s still struggling. Its outlook is also highly dependent on factors outside of its control. The pandemic has already wreaked havoc on the company’s finances. While light is starting to appear at the end of the tunnel, it could be years before the global aviation industry recovers from the pandemic. As such, I think the company needs to keep its options open. That’ll be easier with a higher share price and improved investor sentiment. Rolls-Royce share price risksAs I covered above, I think the business’s outlook is improving. Unfortunately, it continues to face significant risks. These challenges suggest to me that now may not be the best time to buy the stock. Instead, I’m going to wait to see how the company fairs over the next six months or so. By waiting, I think I’ll be able to gain more insight into the state of the global aviation industry and its potential for recovery in the months and years ahead. This will allow me to better understand what the future holds for the Rolls-Royce share price. By sitting on the sidelines, I may miss some of the company’s performance if there’s a strong recovery over the next few weeks. However, this is something I’m totally comfortable with. I’d rather miss out on profits rather than end up owning a lousy investment. I’d also rather wait and see the recovery take hold rather than jumping in and hoping for the best at the current time.Risks and reward This is based on my own personal risk preference. Other investors may have a different approach. After all, the company’s outlook has improved dramatically over the past six months. As my fellow writer GA Chester recently stated, the stock could have the potential to double in the near-term, based on its free cash flow estimates.That’s the best-case scenario. But I’m more worried about the business’s worst-case scenario. Rolls may have to raise yet more money from investors in this scenario. That could put significant downward pressure on the Rolls-Royce share price.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The green screen which is coved in front of building is very important function to explain for this design. This green screen are for the sun protection against inside room, and for one function of outer dinning which is healed in mind between July and the end of October. I mean that the former is one of thermal comfort adjusting, this is necessary to avoid too much expense for electric energy by Air condition. It is effective and contribute for global environment, somehow. Actually 10 degrees difference was confirmed in the outside and the inside of green screen. And it is also because it is cooler effect by the planting of nature, and cool wind enters the room. So that, we can stay there coolly by Screen. Then, the latter is to feel comfortable and relax to see green from living and dining. And we can also go to terrace to have lunch or play pool with kids as fantastic extra room. I feel that it was given the reward of nature. We can take such a passive system in more houses and may enjoy contribution to global environment and the space creation with own pleasure.Save this picture!© Yukinori OkamuraIn the situation of a previous site The site of the client was a field used as the food by the forefather from prewar days. And his mother had made’’ Rose Garden’’ which was loved for neighbors. Therefore, the wish of the client to a site was deep and he wished to keep remaining to build a predecessor’s vestige in a certain form. It used to cultivates before, but, recently hand is not, leaved it out, then it had become a place where weeds and plants grow luxuriantly.Save this picture!Courtesy of Hideo Kumaki Architect OfficeThe accumulation to a predecessor’s site was not totally renewed, but the site was felt positive by leaving some, and the directivity which connects it with the present age became a natural flow. The court yard (garden) was made from the form where two existing cherry trees which were specifically on the old site are connected, and it is arranged a rose shelf facing the road and considered it so that a local neighbor could enjoy it. I examined a planting position and walls so that wind fell out from the site southwest to the northeast area so that the healthy wind that was indispensable for the growth of the plant flowed into the site. And the Wind takes in the room even if I open any window of the garden side. The cool winds get into the room by cool effect of nature, when there is a green screen in summer. I leave the soil for a courtyard as landscape not to give waste in a building as much as possible and use remaining soil.Save this picture!Courtesy of Hideo Kumaki Architect OfficeIn the case that it is considered as the room by consisting of straight walls, there is a tendency for the boundary which assumed use into the zone to be clarified. In this time, by having divided the boundary using rounded corner, unification is given to a zone and a zone, two zones are felt so that it may be felt as one space, and always feel a family’s mutual sign in this space.

FRSB upholds complaints against children’s charity

first_imgFRSB upholds complaints against children’s charity Howard Lake | 17 November 2010 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Law / policy The Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) has upheld a series of serious complaints about the fundraising practices of children’s charity Painted Children. It found the charity has been, and continues to be, in breach of sector best practice while operating illegally in its public fundraising.Consequently, the Board will expel Painted Children and deny it membership renewal from the FRSB, the first time that it has expelled a member charity. It will also report it formally to the Charity Commission, Trading Standards, the Metropolitan Police and relevant licensing authorities, with recommendations that these organisations should investigate further.The complaints had escalated to a final Stage 3 Adjudication by the FRSB, and the adjudication was made after a lengthy investigation and attempts by the FRSB to resolve the issues.The complaints upheld cited illegal street cash collections at numerous retail sites, outside London Underground stations and public highway sites across London, using paid fundraisers and without the necessary site licenses or permissions.The FRSB held meetings with the charity to try to resolve the complaints and its compliance team provided “significant advice and ./guidance”. However, the FRSB said that the charity failed to respond fully to its requests to secure and provide evidence of the required licenses and regulatory compliance.The FRSB Board considered the complaints in the context of the Police, Factories and c. (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1916, the Street Collections (Metropolitan Police District) Regulations of 1979 and the Fundraising Promise commitments. The latter states: “We are committed to high standards (we comply with the law), We are honest and open, We are fair and reasonable”.It also proposed to help the charity correct its compliance practices and assist it to comply with the necessary regulations under a 12-month monitoring programme.Colin Lloyd, Chairman of the Fundraising Standards Board, said: “Painted Children has been knowingly fundraising illegally and breaching the Fundraising Promise and has shown reluctance and complacency in its approach to both its fundraising malpractice and possible resolution, which in turn caused deep concern about the charity’s governance. This is an example of a charity acting irresponsibly and potentially bringing the entire sector into disrepute in a very public facing fashion…“The FRSB Board agreed in this case to take the strongest action open to it.”In upholding the complaints, the Board recommended that the Institute of Fundraising review its Codes of Practice for this area of fundraising, with a view of merging the current codes that cover variations of cash collections or creating a new standalone code for Public Cash Collections.Painted Children‘s website appears to make no mention of the adjudication, but the charity is active fundraising in a variety of ways, including a skydive, an advert in the Police Community Clubs magazine, and The Big Give. It also features the logo of the Good Fundraising Code, whose third principle requires signatories “To abide by all legal regulations governing fundraising and aim for best practice”.www.frsb.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
