And lawyers at the UK’s largest firms only billed 4.6 per cent more hours than last year.However, firms that fall between the 11 to 25 band reported the highest growth in fee income to 5.4 per cent for the period. Lawyers at these firms billed 6.5 per cent more hours compared to 2009.Deloitte partner Jeremy Black, who compiled the data, said the results for the first quarter were a sign of improving fortunes. He said: “The growth has surprised a few, as people tend to forget the hard times pretty quickly. However, there are still a lot of nerves out there. The recovery is difficult to predict.”He added: “The general uncertainty over the economy means that for many firms there is a considerable degree of nervousness as to how the rest of the year will pan out.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Corporation calls for greater consultation with government over taxation, while also accusing HRMC tax teams of being “unnecessarily adversarial”.Stuart Fraser, policy chairman at the City of London Corporation said the lack of predictability in UK tax policy was “having a severe impact on perceptions of those who make the decisions on new investment in global financial services which remain critical for the success of the UK”.He said the deteriorating position on tax certainty was a key issue for potential City investors in deciding whether to do business in London.?Fraser added: “While the scale of overall tax burden is a key consideration, it is clear from this report that our top priority must be to restore the perception of predictability and certainty that has for so long underpinned the UK tax regime.” center_img Thursday 14 October 2010 9:39 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comlast_img read more

These solid results are just an endorsement of that ability.KATE CALVERT | SEYMOUR PIERCEThe business has performed in-line with expectations and it is still on track to deliver full year earnings of £195m after a £10m charge for the bonus share scheme. We were forecasting full year earnings of £190m and are increasing this to £200m this morning, given the momentum in the business.MATTHEW MCEACHRAN | SINGER CAPITAL MARKETSOverall the business is well placed although we are not changing out forecast. The company had a good first half to the year and benefited from the World Cup but things have become a bit tougher since then. They are going to be pretty cautious into next year but they will want to begin to gearing up for the Olympics and a successful 2012. center_img whatsapp Wednesday 20 October 2010 7:28 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Sports Direct in good shape

first_img whatsapp Sports Direct in good shape SPORTS Direct, Britain’s largest sport retailer, warned 2011 would be extremely challenging for all retailers as it delivered a trading update yesterday.The company, controlled by Newcastle United football club owner Mike Ashley, said group sales for the nine weeks ending 26 September were up 5.4 per cent to £295m compared with £218m a year earlier. Gross profit was also up 5.4 per cent to £117m, up from £111m a year earlier. This followed increases of 8.8 per cent and 17.8 per cent respectively in the 13 weeks, which included the sales surge from the World Cup.Retail division sales for the same period increased 6.9 per cent to £264m compared with £247m for the same period a year ago and retail gross profit increased 6.1 per cent to £105m, up £6m year-on-year.Dave Forsey, chief executive of Sports Direct, said: “Following the first quarter of our financial year which included the World Cup tournament we remain pleased with the continuing strong underlying performance across all our divisions.”Forsey added the group’s first half results would be significantly above the corresponding period last year and that the board remained comfortable with targeting a full year earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of £205m despite the tougher conditions expected in 2011. Sports Direct will release its results for the half-year to 24 October in December. The trading update comes just a day after the Serious Fraud Office announced it had dropped its investigation into Sports Direct and JJB Sport over an alleged cartel with no charges brought.

This takes it to six per cent below its high-water mark, the level above which it can earn performance fees. whatsapp Sharecenter_img whatsapp Man Group sees bounce back in client assets More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com John Dunne Tags: NULLlast_img read more

No InstallTaonga: The Island FarmZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Herald Wednesday 15 December 2010 7:43 pm Share Hochtief pursues Spanish target ACS with sweeter offer SPAIN’S ACS turned up the heat on bid target Hochtief yesterday by sweetening an all-share offer to value its German construction rival at around €4.9bn (£4.18bn).The Spanish group, which has been stalking Hochtief since September, said it had improved its bid to nine ACS shares for every five Hochtief shares from its previous eight-for-five offer, adding it was confident the higher bid would succeed.ACS’s amended offer was unexpected. It values Hochtief at €63.8 per share, a two per cent discount to the market price as Hochtief shares rose 1.2 per cent €65.13.ACS shares closed 1.1 per cent down at €35.4 as its shareholders digested the move. ACS had been widely expected to let its initial offer run its course.And in another sign that ACS wants to wrap up the takeover quickly, sources said that the chief executive of Qatar Holding, the Qatari investment vehicle which last week snapped up a 9.1 per cent stake in Hochtief, would meet ACS.If ACS can get its holding above 30 per cent it can then gain control of Hochtief by taking its stake up to 50 per cent, without having to buy out all the German group’s shareholders.Analysts said the move showed ACS was serious about the offer and would probably not raise its bid again, although one of Hochtief’s top 12 investors dismissed the new bid as too low.“The current offer price is at a discount to the market price of Hochtief,” said Kathleen Dewandeleer, a fund manager at Scottish Widows.

Chief executive Steve Lewis said the weather had initially put customers off venturing out but then there had been a rush.The figures for the nine weeks to 3 January followed a year of expansion for the company.Majestic is delaying the VAT rise until the end of this month in another attempt to help reel in customers in a month where alcohol sales are traditionally low after the festive binge. Lewis said: “We are pleased with the figures. After a slow start things came good. We are opening new shops this year and are ambitious about the business.“We will be debt neutral by the end of the financial year.” The retailer, which has 160 shops, is planning to open 12 new shops in 2011.Comparable sales during the half-year rose 7.6 per cent, while interim pre-tax profits increased by 20 per cent to £7.3m. In a bid to boost sales, the company reduced the number of bottles required for a discount from 12 to six in September 2009 to reflect the UK’s mood of austerity.

Factory gate inflation rises

first_img whatsapp Factory gate inflation rose faster than expected in December to its highest annual rate since April, driven by a sharp rise in the price of crude oil and food input costs, official data showed.The news is likely to concern the Bank of England as consumer price inflation is already more than a percentage point above its two per cent target and is forecast to rise towards 4 percent in the coming months.The Office for National Statistics said producer output prices rose 4.2 per cent in December, slightly above forecasts for an annual rise of 3.9 per cent. On the month, output prices were up 0.5 percent, versus a 0.4 percent forecast.December input prices were 12.5 per cent higher on the year – also the highest annual rate since April – compared with a 9.2 per cent annual rise in November and against forecasts for an annual rate of 10.4 per cent.Economists had expected some acceleration in input costs due to higher oil and gas prices and the weaker pound.A slowdown in the growth of labour costs had been expected to keep output prices more steady.Stripping out input costs for food and petroleum industries, the annual rate of input price inflation in December rose to 8.8 percent from 7.5 percent on a seasonally-adjusted basis.The rise in the cost of crude oil over the year contributed almost half of the annual rise in input cost inflation, with increases in the cost of home produced food and imported metals also playing a significant role.The cost of crude oil inputs is 26.2 per cent higher than a year ago, its highest annual rise since May 2010.This is having a knock-on impact on fuel inputs, which are rising at their fastest annual pace since May 2009.The cost of home-produced food materials is 11.3 per cent higher on the year – its biggest annual rise since 2008.
