News Corp is keen to avoid a full Competition Commission probe into its bid to acquire the remaining 61 per cent of BSkyB it does not already own and is prepared to make concessions to do so. Culture secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he intends to refer the deal to the Commission, but last month granted News Corp an extension to address media plurality issues. Analysts have said News Corp would be unlikely to offer Sky News as a concession unless necessary. But Murdoch is now thought to be keen enough to close the deal for BSkyB, which is currently valued at £13.2bn, to agree to it.It would almost certainly mean News Corp avoiding a six-month review by the Competition ­Commission.FAST FACTS | BSKYB TAKEOVERNews Corp made a 700p per share bid for BSkyB’s remaining 61 per cent in June 2010.The deal values the broadcaster at £13.2bn. If Jeremy Hunt approves an agreement, the deal will go to a 15-day public consultation. whatsapp More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.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.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

It is the country’s largest foreign bank with more than 590 branches and nearly 1m customers.Barclays Corporate made heavy losses in Spain last year, where corporate bad debts more than trebled to £898m due to losses in the property and construction sector. whatsapplast_img read more

Harvey Jones | Friday, 23rd October, 2020 | More on: IHG The travel and leisure sectors have been hit by the pandemic, but some FTSE 100 stocks have better recovery potential than others. Like the one I’m looking at here.Air carriers remain plunged in misery, with EasyJet trading 10% lower than six months ago, and British Airways-owner International Consolidated Airlines Group down 30%. Measured over one year, they are down 57% and 69% respectively.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…Until we can start flying again, without fear of sudden lockdowns, these FTSE 100 stocks will struggle.There are more signs of life in the hotels sector. Foreign and business travel may have collapsed, but the staycation has partly compensated. The InterContinental Hotels Group (LSE: IHG) share price inevitably crashed in March as the world went into lockdown, but the FTSE 100 stock has staged a plucky recovery since. In fact, it is up almost 25% in the last six months. It now trades just 6% lower than this time last year, when we’d never heard of coronavirus.This FTSE 100 stock can recoverThe Holiday Inn and Crown Plaza owner has fared much better than Premier Inn owner Whitbread. Its share price is still down 33% compared to a year ago. A few days ago I called Whitbread a tempting-but-risky buy, trading at just 11.4 earnings. So what about IHG?The all-important measure of success in the hotels trade, revenue per available room (RevPAR), plunged catastrophically in the lockdown. However, by August IHG was reporting signs of improvement, helped by the fact it has hotel operations in fast-recovering China.Today, IHG reported improved third-quarter trading, although progress continues to vary by region. RevPAR declined 53%, but that was an improvement on a decline of 75% in the second quarter. Occupancy was also heading in the right direction at 44%, up from 25% in Q2.CEO Keith Barr said domestic mainstream travel remains resilient, as the rise of the staycation helped offset the fall in business travel. IHG still has a long way to go, with 199 hotels still closed at the end of September, although this is only 3% of its estate.The balance sheet is more solid than many FTSE 100 stocks, with positive cash flow in Q3 boosting total available liquidity to $2.1bn. By issuing new funds and partially repaying 2022 bonds in early October, it increased liquidity further to $2.9bn.The IHG share price is hard to valueIHG directly owns only a small number of its hotels, with most operating as franchises. That helps ease pressure on the bottom line. It has also cut back on costs, with gross capital expenditure expected to be around $150m in 2020, a saving of $100m on last year.My worry is that the next lockdown is going to hurt, with so many beds empty today. That isn’t stopping IHG from opening 11,000 rooms in the quarter. Not every FTSE 100 stock is so optimistic.IHG suspended its dividend earlier this year citing “limited visibility”. In my view, visibility hasn’t improved much. Its share price is almost impossible to value. Its P/E ratio is set to top 138 this year, as earnings per share fall a forecast 87%. It is then expected to retreat to 31.1 times next year, with earnings forecast to rise a bumper 341%.That all rests on Covid-19, of course. This FTSE 100 stock looks nicely placed to survive the pandemic, but the pace of the recovery could be slow. See all posts by Harvey Joneslast_img read more

RBS 6 Nations: The Alternative Awards

first_imgFrench prop Vincent Debaty (C) vies with Scottish players during the Six Nations International Rugby Union match France-Scotland at the Stade de France, in Saint-Denis, near Paris on March 16, 13. AFP PHOTO / LIONEL BONAVENTURE (Photo credit should read LIONEL BONAVENTURE/AFP/Getty Images) I suppose David North doesn’t really need much invitation to come on down…Picture the scene. A packed out Parisian stadium; a tense contest between France and Wales; a pin-point chip kick is lofted over the static French defence, Samoan-thighed winger George North collects the pill and elegantly dabs down, despite the best efforts of a racing Francois Trinh-Duc. Then, out of nowhere, North’s father, in a moment of well, madness, hops a barrier, shimmies past security and hot-foots it over to pat his hulking son on the back, before being hauled off without his feet touching the ground. It’s a situation all teenagers recognise – remember North’s only 20 – as an ‘oh dad!’ moment.Well, we all get caught up…Best BarnetCarefully conditioned and combed to salon-quality perfection, a gorgeous mop of primrose locks sits atop the squat frame of a certain Richard Hibbard. That same ogrish hooker who thumped over from a few yards against Scotland without any discernable esprit and who has been burrowing into burly scrums with glee. Like his roof, he is a man with layers. Honourable mentions to Dimitri Szarzewski, and of course, ahem, The Baron.Big Hand for Picking Players Out of PositionLike floral shirts and sherry bars, picking players out of position is all the rage right now. I don’t get it (on all counts), but it’s big.Mike Brown on the wing; Sam Warburton at 6; Kelly Brown at 7; Wesley Fofana on the touchline; Yoann Huget at full-back; Freddie Michalak in a position different from the one he plays at club level; in fact any Frenchman who can be moved has been. Why? Because, we are French!Some make the most of it, some thrive and some make a pigs ear of it, remember poor Mauro Bergamasco being picked as a scrum-half against England in 2009, he’s only just recovering. Could this be one of the reasons the tournament lost coherence for a few weeks?Wrecking ball with a beard: France’s Vincent DebatyBest try saverThere are always plenty of candidates for best try of the tournament. But what about moments where certain disaster was averted? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Not so shy and retiring: Italian stalwart and facial-hair model Baron Andrea Lo Cicero Vaina on his last Azzurri bowBy Alan DymockTHE PARTY had to end some time. The fat lady is resting her shrill voice and the heroes of Cardiff’s street sweeping corps have earned their corn, but there is no more international rugby. Until the summer, that is.Let us live in the moment, though. Let us celebrate the madness and the maddening moments; the shrug-evoking cameos and the heady disharmony of delighted yelps and woeful whines.Here is Rugby World’s Alternative 6 Nations Awards!Unsung heroItalian institution Baron Andrea Lo Cicero has gracefully sashayed off the international stage for the last time. In 103 caps he has scored a creditable eight tries and was tromping around the paddock during Italy’s first ever away win in the Six Nations (against Scotland, unsurprisingly). He played at the coal face for the Barbarians and has represented Rovigo and L’Aquila on home turf, as well as Toulouse and is still thumping into Top 14 opponents with Racing Metro.He remains an inspiration to hirsute props around the globe, as well as continuing to be a style icon, with his flowing locks, whiskered face and fetching calf tattoo. Every prop should have the essence of The Baron. He will be sorely missed.Unsung villainDuring Lo Cicero’s last cap the band at the Stadio Olimpico had a polished-brass shocker, squeakily hashing the anthems and running out of sync with an inflamed crowd. For the Azzurri anthem they could have just gone a-capella, much like the Scots did halfway through Flower or Scotland. Or failing that, just push the aforementioned Lo Cicero out in front, with a cape, and let him effervesce up and down the touchline like a conductor, whipping the crowd into a heady frenzy. You know, the way international rugby should be.Hot heels: Flickmaster Zebo scores against WalesFlash of brilliance BouquetJust fling the posies at Simon Zebo’s sublime feet right now.Week one, all those weeks ago, saw a moment of instinctive brilliance as the Irish winger took a low pass on his outstretched heel, cycling forward as if he was mid-spinning class, and cupped the ball in his hands. In a nano-second, the Zebo flick was born. It was the kind of on-the-hoof magic that leads to many a shattered window as kids in playgrounds all around over home nations attempt to re-create the moment.Pewter Quaich for Best Cameo There are a few candidates. There was a sensational saving tackle from Mike Brown after North bulldozed past Chris Ashton and snarled his way up the park. There was a hit from Craig Gilroy in the first game which stopped Leigh Halfpenny from making used of a 3-on-1. Morgan Parra became the stick in the spokes as a rampaging Manu Tuilagi shrugged off several would-be French tacklers.However, the winner has to be Stuart Hogg, who risked potential liquidation as he hit the fridge on rollerskates that is the near 20st Vincent Debaty. Be grateful, Irish fans: that tackle meant that France finished bottom of the Championship rather than you.last_img read more
