Xchanging, which sponsors the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, also said it will take a £100m impairment charge linked to the loss of goodwill from its disastrous takeover of India’s Cambridge Solutions in 2008. Chief financial officer Ken Lever, who is acting chief executive following the sudden departure of founder David Andrews, said 2011 operating profit will be lower than £55.5m, the bottom end of analyst estimates. Contract delays and cancellations will hit the firm’s bottom line, Xchanging said in a statement, and it will reveal more details of a cost-cutting drive to offset the losses in its results statement on 1 March. A spokesperson said the firm did not plan to make any job cuts.“We mustn’t get carried away here,” said Lever during an analyst conference call. “We have a very strong profitable and cash-generating business in the UK … I wouldn’t go away from here thinking there are no silver linings.” Outgoing chief Andrews, who founded Xchanging in 1999, will remain an adviser to chairman Nigel Rich. Andrews lost around £11.3m yesterday as his 19.8m shares in Xchanging crashed to less than half their previous value. The stock closed at 56.5p yesterday – a loss of 52 per cent, and less than a quarter of its 12-month high of 222p. Analysts rushed to cut their estimates for 2011. Mike Murphy from Numis moved from “buy” to “sell”, adding in a note: “The CEO has, rightly in our opinion, fallen on his sword…. [I]t is possible everything, bar the proverbial kitchen sink, has been thrown into the 2011 numbers. “However, it is difficult to see relations being repaired with the market until the group delivers on expectations.”Profit warning for 2011Xchanging’s 2011 profit will be less than the most bearish forecasts of £55.5m, despite lowering forecasts in late 2010.£100m goodwill hitXchanging bought Bangalore-based IT firm Cambridge Solutions for £83m, but has written down £100m from loss of goodwill. Dividend scrappedXchanging paid a dividend of 2.75p per share last April, but investors will get nothing for the 2010 financial year.Chief executive leavesFounder and CEO David Andrews has left his post without warning after 12 years.Investors take a batteringXchanging’s biggest shareholders include hedge fund Breeden (which also lost out during the demise of housing repair firm Connaught), former Cambridge Solutions owner Scandent, and several board members including Andrews himself.

Galleon trial witness testifies

first_imgThursday 10 March 2011 8:32 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL A DISGRACED former McKinsey partner told jurors at the Galleon Group insider trading trial yesterday that he leaked stock tips about the firm’s clients to hedge founder Raj Rajaratnam. Anil Kumar was the first of several of the hedge fund founder’s former friends to testify for the government at the high-profile trial in New York. In dramatic testimony, jurors heard Rajaratnam’s voice for the first time, captured on FBI wiretaps in conversations prosecutors argue show he traded illegally on company secrets.Kumar has admitted accepting $1.75m (£1.1m) from Rajaratnam, a one-time billionaire, in exchange for supplying tips on McKinsey clients, including computer chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices.On the witness stand, he recounted that Rajaratnam told him: “You work very very hard. You are underpaid. People are making fortunes … so just keep track of your knowledge and share it with me.”Sri Lankan-born Rajaratnam, free on bail since his October 2009 arrest, is accused of creating a network of tipsters who fed him inside information that gave him an unfair advantage over other stock traders. His trial is the signature case in an insider trading probe that has shaken the $1.9 trillion hedge fund industry.Kumar stared straight ahead when he arrived in the courtroom, avoiding Rajaratnam’s gaze. Rajaratnam took notes on a white legal pad throughout Kumar’s testimony.The case stands apart from past insider trading probes because of the use of wiretaps, tools usually used to tackle organised crime groups.

The easyJet (LSE: EZJ) share price has come under intense pressure during the coronavirus-induced stock market crash. Trading north of 1,500p immediately pre-meltdown, it’s below 600p as I’m writing.And as if easyJet didn’t have enough on its plate, its founder and largest shareholder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, has launched an attack on the directors. This came in the form of a letter to the board published on his personal website. What are investors to make of the letter and the company’s current situation?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…State aidIt was only in January that easyJet’s chief executive Johan Lundgren was moaning about the government’s Flybe rescue. He said: “We do not support state funding of carriers … taxpayers should not be used to bail out individual companies.”Just a couple of months later, and he’s found himself having to plead for government support, warning easyJet and other airlines could go bankrupt without it. Not comparable with the Flybe rescue, he’s argued, as easyJet is not seeking “bespoke” state aid.Haji-Ioannou contends the “main risk to survival of the company is the expected £4.5bn of payments to Airbus between 2020 and 2023 … for the future delivery of 107 aircraft which the company CANNOT afford.”He wants easyJet to serve a termination notice to Airbus, and adds: “I do not support the current calls by Johan Lundgren for government loans. If we don’t pay AIRBUS we don’t need government loans. It would be an abuse of taxpayers’ money to obtain loans to pay AIRBUS … We should raise equity … in order to replenish the current losses.”LiquidityThe grounding of easyJet’s entire fleet, announced yesterday, has removed significant cost. And the company said it’s continuing “to take every action to remove cost and non-critical expenditure from the business at every level.”It’s also reached agreement on furlough arrangements for its cabin crew. Effective 1 April 2020, for a period of two months, crew will receive 80% of their average pay through the government’s job retention scheme.Despite this, and having recently reported net cash of £1.6bn and a $500m revolving credit line, the company said it’s in “ongoing discussions with liquidity providers.”What does it mean for investors?Clearly, there’s considerable uncertainty about the future. We don’t know how long the impact from Covid-19 will last. We don’t know if easyJet’s ongoing discussions with liquidity providers will be successful. And we don’t know how dilutive an equity fundraising would be.My Motley Fool colleague Harvey Jones recently wrote about the idea of buying easyJet shares: “It’s a wild, desperate punt, and I don’t want to take that sort of risk right now.”Ordinarily, I’d agree with that assessment. However, we’re in extraordinary times. Governments are doing everything possible to help businesses stay solvent. I think lenders are likely to be relatively tolerant, particularly with companies whose underlying businesses are strong, like easyJet. Similarly, such businesses with a supportive major shareholder like Haji-Ioannou, are also likely to be more successful in raising fresh equity.I wouldn’t want to own too many stocks in easyJet’s position. But, on balance, I rate it a speculative ‘buy’. A small stake and a willingness to participate in a rights issue may be the right recipe.

Should I buy Tesco shares or Amazon shares?

However, I think Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) shares also look attractive, but for different reasons.Understanding Amazon shares Choosing between the two isn’t easy. I think Amazon has much brighter growth prospects. Indeed, the company is only expanding around the world, while Tesco is retreating. The latter sold its biggest overseas business last year and returned the cash to investors. Meanwhile, Amazon is still investing tens of billions of dollars every year growing its divisions across the globe. 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…And Amazon is far more than just a retailer. The company is probably best known for its retail business, but it also has a large advertising and cloud computing arm. Both of these divisions now provide the bulk of the group’s profit. Tesco too has other businesses aside from its core retail division. It’s been investing more in its financial arm and mobile phone operation, although these are still small fry compared to the retail operation. In my opinion, the debate of which is the better buy, Tesco shares or Amazon shares, comes down to simplicity and cash returns. Tesco shares and dividend growth I think Tesco is a very simple business. The company buys products from suppliers, adds a small margin, and then sells these on to consumers. There’s a bit more to it than that, but that’s the gist of it. Amazon not only buys and sells from suppliers and consumers, but it also owns one of the world’s largest airlines, haulage businesses, cloud computing businesses and advertising businesses. Put simply, there’s far more to understand with the American company, and that’s why I’d buy Tesco shares over Amazon shares. I’m a big believer in investing in what I only understand. I can understand Tesco’s business model. I roughly know how Amazon works, but I struggle to understand how the company’s retail division actually makes money. Another attractive quality of owning Tesco over Amazon is the UK retailer’s cash generation. Management is targeting an annual free cash flow of £1.2bn. This should be enough to support the company’s 4% dividend yield, and then some.Granted, this cash flow is minuscule compared to Amazon’s $31bn of free cash flow for 2020, but all of this is being reinvested back into growth. At least Tesco’s investors are getting some cold, hard cash in their pockets. That said, Tesco’s growth is unlikely to be anywhere near that of Amazon’s going forward. That’s the trade-off. Tesco is an income stock. Amazon is a growth investment. Risks and challenges The risks facing each company are different as well. Competition in the e-commerce sector is fierce. This could hurt Amazon’s growth and profit margins. The same can be said for the cloud computing and marketing industries.The UK supermarket sector is also viciously competitive. More competition and higher costs could hurt Tesco’s profit margins, leading to reduced free cash flow. Even after considering these risks and challenges, I’d buy Tesco shares as an income investment over Amazon shares. However, I also think there’s a place for the latter in a growth portfolio.    Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Amazon. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco and recommends the following options: long January 2022 $1920 calls on Amazon and short January 2022 $1940 calls on Amazon.

It will direct customers via a URL embedded in the script to information, advice, and support around mental health.The initiative will be rolled out along the Virgin Trains West Coast route, with the film’s message of goodwill painted across station platforms in towns and cities that include; London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston, Carlisle and Glasgow.Over 7.5km of script is being painted over 14 nights in 14 locations, with the script painted behind the yellow line that runs the length of station platforms and will use the same yellow paint. All of the painting will be completed by Bagnalls, Virgin Trains’ painting partner of 10 years, with help from Manchester-based Laser Cutting Services which custom-manufactured the stencils for the painting.Throughout December, customers will also be able to watch ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ on Virgin Trains’ on-board free entertainment service. Volunteers from Rethink Mental Illness will also be fundraising at Virgin Trains stations throughout the campaign period.Rethink Mental Illness has worked with Virgin Trains since May 2017, training its people in how to deal with mental health issues that they might experience during their working day and in their personal life. Natasha Grice, Executive Director of People at Virgin Trains said:“It’s A Wonderful Life is a story of hope, redemption and kindness, which teaches us that having someone there for you when you need it the most is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. Many of our people have been personally affected by the issues raised in this campaign or know someone who has been. This is why we wanted to get as many of our staff involved as possible, working to create a message of kindness that will touch as many of our customers as we can. We want everyone to know there’s help out there, and that if you’re not affected by poor mental health, it’s really easy to help someone who is.”James Fletcher, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Rethink Mental Illness said: Advertisementcenter_img  156 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 “It is vital at this time of year to let people know that help is available if they need it.

We publish photos of journalist beaten by National Guard while detained

first_img Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder Organisation GambiaAfrica Reporters Without Borders today published photographs showing the marks left on the body of a journalist from the blows he received from members of the National Guard while detained earlier this year in Gambia, where two journalists are still in detention. The journalist’s identity and the circumstances of his imprisonment are known to Reporters Without Borders but are being withheld to protect him. Gambia’s National Guard is an elite corps that is under President Yahya Jammeh’s direct orders and has its headquarters next to the presidential building.Reporters Without Borders calls on the African Union, the European Union, the United States and Taiwan – Gambia’s leading political and economic partners – to do everything possible to bring the Jammeh regime’s increasingly authoritarian excesses to an end.“The publication of these photos is an appeal for help,” the organisation said. “Gambia is sinking into violence and despotism. Some political detainees are clearly being brutally treated by the Gambian National Guard. The international community, including the leading African democracies, can no longer remain silent. We believe that the Jammeh government is not fit to host the African Union summit, and that the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR) should leave Banjul.”The most recent journalist to be arrested in Gambia was Lamin Cham, a BBC stringer and former editor of the Daily Observer, who was detained by the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) on 27 May and was released today without being charged. Malick Mboob, a former reporter with the privately-owned Daily Observer and now the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital’s spokesman, was arrested on 26 May and is being held at NIA headquarters in Banjul. Cham and Mboob were picked up after their names appeared on a list of subscribers to Freedom Newspaper, an opposition news website edited by Pa Nderry Mbai, a Gambian journalist living in self-imposed exile in the United States. After someone hacked into the website, the list was published in Gambia by the pro-government Daily Observer under the headline, “Freedom Newspaper informers exposed.”The police are reportedly searching for other journalists including Omar Bah, for whom a wanted notice has been issued. Bar was the Daily Observer’s editor until he was fired last October and replaced by a Jammeh loyalist.The other journalist currently held is Lamin Fatty of the privately-owned bi-weekly The Independent, who was arrested at his home by police on 12 April and was not allowed to see a lawyer for more than a month. He was charged on 24 May with “publishing false news” under a draconian press law providing for heavy prison sentences. Despite the protests of local and international press freedom groups, the law was adopted in 2004, on the eve of the murder of Deyda Hydara, the co-editor of the tri-weekly The Point and correspondent of Agence France-Presse and Reporters Without Borders.

I crossed over to get a different shot when one of the crowd control stewards began to insult me. I ignored him but he pushed me and shouted obscenities. Without getting aggressive, I said he was bothering me and that he should let me work.”When Moreno turned back towards the crowd, he found himself surrounded by police officers: “I asked them why they were doing this to me, I told them I was press, but they did not want to know and threatened to detain me. Ten other policemen arrived. Fellow photographers saw what was happening and wanted to intervene. In all, there were five of us against 15 policemen.” During the ensuing altercation, Moreno was kicked several time in the ribs and clubbed over an ear, and his camera was damaged.Moreno was treated at a Red Cross post and, the next day, with the support of his colleagues, he made a complaint to the head of the Veracruz state public security department. “Gen.
