Lancashire to return £213m in dividends

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp Lancashire to return £213m in dividends INSURER Lancashire yesterday blew expectations out of the water with its third-quarter pre-tax profit of $107.6m (£67m) versus a consensus forecast of $82m.On the back of its success it has decided to return £213m to investors in a special 86p per share dividend, making it the first major non-life insurance firm in London this year to return capital to shareholders.Most insurance companies have instead been sitting on growing piles of cash as they mull their spending options. But in addition to issuing the dividend, Lancashire says it has been buying back shares. Its stock has risen 23 per cent since 1 June.The insurance industry is in a period of intense competition due to a build-up of capital sparking aggressive pricing pressure.However, Lancashire’s third-quarter gross written premiums growth also confounded expectations, coming in at $135m against $129m consensus. This was, however, a decline on last year of 2.8 per cent.Investment returns were two per cent versus 1.6 per cent last year. The firm has also named its new chief financial officer as Elaine Whelan. Lancashire shares closed up 1.4 per cent at 586p.

Bank fees in T-Mobile deal could reach $145m

first_img The bankers advising mobile operator AT&T on its $39bn deal to take over T-Mobile USA could walk away with $145m (£89m) in fees, a US consultancy has said.Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase will gain the lion’s share of the fees to provide M&A advice to both sides, with loan arrangement fees making up the remainder, according to consultancy firm Freeman & Co.JPMorgan and two boutique firms, Greenhill and Evercore, advising AT&T should split $55-60m between them while the banks working with seller Deutsche Telekom – Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank – should take home $50-55m, Freeman said.Fees to underwrite a bridging loan to secure the deal will generate even more fees for JPMorgan. The bank could have gained fees of $20m for helping AT&T to borrow $20bn unsecured for 18 months – the second-largest bridge loan since 2000, according to Thomson Reuters LPC.AT&T’s acquisition is the biggest global telecoms deal since 2006, when AT&T bought BellSouth for $89.4bn.

L&L Europe penalised for Swedish self-exclusion breach

first_img Sweden’s Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has issued a SEK600,000 (£48,200/€54,800/$59,600) penalty fee to L&L Europe Ltd for its failure to enforce self-exclusions from national self-exclusion register Spelpaus.se.L&L Europe Ltd operates 14 casino sites in Swede, including the Fun Casino, HyperCasino, No Bonus Casino and Norge Casino brands.An investigation into L&L started after self-excluded players told Spelinspektionen that they had been able to play at its sites.L&L said the issue was due to a change in its bank ID verification supplier, which led to a delay in processing self-exclusion requests from Spelpaus for players who had set up accounts before 1 January, 2019. This issue affected self-excluded customers from 28 April 2019 to 6 May 2019.The operator has since returned all deposits to a self-excluded player that was still able to gamble.Spelinspektionen said that the violation was to be considered “serious”, which would mean an operator’s licence may be revoked unless a warning is deemed sufficient.“The fact that L&L did not complete the required Spelpaus.se checks speaks for itself that the violation should be considered serious,” Spelinspektionen said. “In addition, that a player was able to play despite being registered in Spelpaus.se further indicates that the violation is serious.”However, as L&L corrected the issue themselves meant that a warning and penalty fee was considered appropriate the regulator concluded. The penalty fee was set at 0.1% of L&L’s turnover.

Africa faces 21st-century neocolonialism

first_imgAfrica has been severely set back by imperialist destruction of Libya and interference in Egypt’s and Tunisia’s democratic processes. Five years ago a rebellion throughout Tunisia toppled longtime dictator Zen El Abidine Ben Ali.WWP National Committee memberAbayomi AzikiweThe unrest spread to Egypt, leading to President Hosni Mubarak’s forced resignation. The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party won the next presidential elections.Demonstrations spread to Algeria and Yemen, bringing different outcomes. The rebellions in Tunisia and Egypt did not lead to the consolidation of progressive forces which could seize power and establish a political order committed to revolutionary transformation and socialism.Egypt’s military-turned-civilian regime is still subsidized by the CIA and the Pentagon. Tunisia has been returned to the Ben Ali’s regime’s political collaborators, taking its place in the Washington-led “war on terrorism.”When a rebellion erupted in Libya, a more ominous trend was revealed. Counterrevolutionaries targeted Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s Jamahiriya system. When Western-backed armed opposition groups faced growing resistance by loyalist troops, the U.S. and its NATO allies engineered U.N. Security Council resolutions approving widespread bombing of Libya.Today Libya is a major source of instability throughout North and West Africa. Imperialist militarism has compounded crises in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. In the worst international humanitarian disaster since World War II’s conclusion, more than 50 million people have been displaced.African and Middle Eastern states and Southern and Eastern European countries are bearing the brunt of the migration. The hundreds of thousands flooding into Europe face racism, xenophobia, brutality and marginalization.Imperialism spreads tentaclesThe U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) is escalating deployments across the continent through direct intervention and partnerships with states and regional organizations. Emboldened by its operations in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt, imperialism is spreading its tentacles.An AFRICOM base in Djibouti at Camp Lemonnier is being refurbished for the expanding mission, involving thousands of Pentagon troops. Airstrips are being constructed to ostensibly assist African Union member-states in the fight against “terrorism.”Creation of an African Standby Force — first advanced by the Pan-Africanist and Ghana’s socialist leader Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and later by Gadhafi — has been realized, absent its revolutionary orientation. ASF exercises in South Africa rely on Pentagon and European Union funding.Any continental military force aimed at fostering peace and stability in Africa must be independent of imperialism. Otherwise such efforts will serve as an appendage of Pentagon-NATO forces and serve neocolonist interests.This crisis of imperialist militarism is coupled with the debt dilemma resulting from the advanced capitalist states’ economic decline. Despite reports hailing “phenomenal economic growth” in Africa, these states have higher debt-service ratios, joblessness and rapid currency devaluations, partly stemming from commodity price declines due to capitalist overproduction.This monumental debt burden is sparking militant working-class struggles, and socialism is being re-examined. In Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa — “emerging economies” — workers, students and youth are striking and demonstrating, demanding action to halt rapidly declining living standards fueled by inflation and diminishing foreign investment.This developing crisis requires an ideological and political response. The lessons of Egypt and Tunisia show that uprisings must be informed by anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist politics. Otherwise the Libyan model will spread.Rising oil and mineral production without transforming productive relations within the emerging economies will only benefit imperialism. The contradictions between the capitalist modes of production and the social relations of production must be resolved.The only solution is socialist revolution, where workers, farmers and youth can determine their future without the domination of Western financial institutions bolstered by CIA, Pentagon and NATO forces.Western capitalists depend upon acquiring natural resources and labor from the oppressed nations on terms set by corporations and financial institutions. Workers and the oppressed inside imperialist countries are sacrificing their standard of living with declining wages, evisceration of social services and privatization of public assets.The basis for international revolution exists. We must link the struggles of the workers and the oppressed globally against U.S. imperialism, the center of world exploitation. Only this revolutionary transformation can achieve peace, stability and mutual cooperationinternationally.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A guide to understanding collegiate rifle

Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comTCU rifle has brought home three national championships in the past 10 seasons, earning them the title of the “most dominant sport at TCU.”Here are a few things fans should know about the sport as the Frogs seek to repeat as national champions in 2020. What are the two disciplines in rifle, and how are they different?The sport is split into two disciplines: small bore and air rifle. In small bore, there are three positions the shooter must attempt, all 50 feet away from the target. The first is standing, the second is prone and the third is kneeling. The shooter receives 20 shots per position, making a total of 60 shots. While athletes switch shooting positions three times in small bore, they stand 10 meters from the target the entire time in air rifle.The gun used in smallbore is heavier than the gun used in air rifle, and the bullets are larger. In small bore, the guns are .22 caliber. In air rifle, the guns are .177 caliber, meaning that the bullets are 0.22 of an inch and 0.177 of an inch in diameter, respectively. How do competitions work?There are relays in rifle. At TCU, the first relay begins with the smallbore competition, followed by the air rifle competition. Once the first round of shooters competes in both disciplines, the next round will begin. TCU’s range has 12 lanes; therefore, 12 shooters can go at a time. The time allotted for the smallbore event is 105 minutes. In that time, competitors are allowed to take as much time as they need for each shot, as long as they have completed 60 by the end. The rules are the same in air rifle; however, the shooters are only allotted an hour and 30 minutes. How are competitions scored?Each discipline is scored on 60 shots. The closer the attempt is to the center of the target, the more points are awarded. The maximum amount of points an athlete can make per shot is 10 whole numbers are used to score in collegiate rifle. Before each competition, the team chooses five of its members to be “counters,” or scorers. Only the top four scores of the five counters will be weighted in the team score. The team score is the team aggregate of the top four counters’ scores. An individual aggregate is the combination of a counters’ score in both events. Outside of the top five, team members compete for their individual scores. No. 2 TCU will face UTEP on the road this Saturday in their final regular-season match of the year.center_img Students create documentary on sex-trafficking in Fort Worth Previous articleHoroscope: February 6, 2020Next articleWomen’s golf ready to take on the spring Lindsay Tomaini RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Facebook ReddIt + posts Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Linkedin Facebooklast_img read more

The bomb exploded on the third floor of the building, where the management offices are located. The exact number of casualties and the positions they held are not known. The station did not stop broadcasting.The bombing came just two days after a rebel attack on the state TV building in the northwestern city of Aleppo and a month after an explosion caused severe damage to the headquarters of the pro-government TV station Al-Ekhbarya.”We condemn these targeted attacks on state TV buildings in Damascus and Aleppo as well as murders and abductions of journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Neither news media, professional journalists nor citizen journalists should be targeted by any of the parties to this conflict.”We urge the main components of the opposition, both civilian and military, to condemn these atrocities. We also strongly condemn the publication and broadcasting of messages inciting hatred and violence against the civilian population. The media must not relay propaganda of any kind.”According to the London-based Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Centre, Mohammad Sayeed, the state TV presenter who was kidnapped from his Damascus home on 19 July, has been killed. His abduction and murder were clamed by Al-Nosra, an Islamist group, which described Sayeed as a pro-government militia member (shabbih) and said he was interrogated and then executed. The Al-Nosra communiqué, accompanied by a photo of Sayeed with his abductors, was posted on a website that displays an Al-Qaeda flag.State TV chief Maan Saleh has not confirmed Sayeed’s death. “We have no hard evidence that he is dead,” Saleh told Agence France-Presse. The rebel Free Syrian Army has meanwhile denied having anything to do with his abduction and murder.Talal Janbakeli, a state TV cameraman, was meanwhile kidnapped by the Harun Al-Rasheed militia yesterday in Damascus. In a video released by his abductors, he could be seen in an abnormal state repeating phrases dictated by a person out of camera view about the Syrian army’s atrocities.
