Quindell broker quit after being left in the dark

first_imgA lack of information, rather than concerns over Quindell’s financial position, was the reason Canaccord Genuity resigned as the insurance outsourcer’s joint broker in October, it emerged last night.A source close to the stockbroker told City A.M. that it decided to leave the beleaguered Quindell after a “breakdown in dialogue” between the companies had resulted in the broker feeling “left in the dark”.Canaccord felt that it was no longer able to access the necessary financial information from Quindell to do its job properly, and therefore concluded the relationship had become untenable, said the source.The news appears to contradict recent media speculation that Canaccord left Quindell after one of the broker’s analysts raised concerns over the Hamp­shire-based company’s fin­ancial position.It has been a year to forget for Quin­dell, with the company shrouded in controversy and spe­c­ulation for most of the past six months. After a series of successful city purchases helped it build a market value of over £2.7bn at the beginning of the year, it has since lost £2bn as a result of share price volatility.Founder and chairman Rob Terry resigned early last week, alongside two other Quindell directors, after the company disclosed a complex share transfer agreement that saw the three directors sell shares to a US securities-backed lender in exchange for cash to buy more Quindell shares.The news came after Canaccord itself had resigned its position as Quindell’s joint broker without disclosing a reason.The whole debacle started back in April when mysterious short-seller Gotham City Research published a 74-page dossier about Quindell’s finan­cial position. Shares plummeted 52 per cent, and closed down 39 per cent, wiping out nearly £1bn in a day. Quindell has since successfully sued Gotham for libel over the report.On Friday, Quindell denied rumours it was looking to sell its stake in Nationwide Accident Repair Services.

The radical left party Syriza led by firebrand Alexis Tsipras will win first place with between 36.5 per cent of the vote.According to MetronAnalysis’ pollster Fanaras Syriza will come just one seat short of winning a parliamentary majority with 150 seats. The anti-austerity party has promised to reverse massive spending cuts and negotiate a write-off of Greece’s debts. Tsipras’s principal opponent is the conservative New Democracy party, which make-up the current government. The exit polls showed New Democracy taking 23-27 per cent of the vote.New Democracy has pushed ahead with economic reforms recommended by the Troika – the European Union (EU), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and European Central Bank (ECB). While the deficit has been eliminated and growth has returned many Greeks are still immensely poorer than they were five years ago.The Greek parliament is comprised of 300 members. The party that wins the largest share of the vote is awarded an additional 50 MPs. After voting this morning, Tsipras said, “the vicious circle of austerity is over”.Syriza’s programme of debt relief and an end to austerity have set the party on a collision course with other EU member states. Angela Merkel, in particular, will be unwilling to give way to Tsipras’s demands for fear of a backlash at home and encouraging radical parties in other member states. Syriza has attempted to moderate its positions over the course of the campaign, saying it wants Greece to remain in the Euro.A Syriza victory followed by political deadlock could lead to Greece defaulting on its debts and exiting the Euro. Last week, ratings agency Moody’s has warned that the heightened risk of a Greek exit from the Eurozone “could have negative credit implications for other members of the European single currency”.However, the Eurozone is in a far better shape to withstand any contagion from a Grexit than it was five years ago. But a Grexit would still be a seminal moment for the currency block, said chief credit officer, Colin Ellis:Any exit from the single currency would be a defining moment for the euro: it would show that the monetary union is divisible, not irreversible.  last_img read more

Service sector rebound quells recovery fears

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Express KCS Service sector rebound quells recovery fears whatsapp THE UK’s dominant service sector picked up in January, new survey data shows.The purchasing managers’ index (PMI) compiled by Markit climbed to a score 57.2 in January from December’s 55.8, according to figures released yesterday. Any score above 50 signifies expansion in activity.Following improvements in purchasing managers’ surveys for the manufacturing and construction sectors, the boost to services should end any fears of a lull in the UK’s economic growth. The service sector makes up around 79 per cent of the country’s economic output.Meanwhile, the UK’s growth slowed in the final three months of 2014. The three-month on three-month growth rate in GDP slipped to 0.5 per cent for October to December, down from 0.7 per cent in the July to September period. “Cheaper oil, cheaper money, cheaper imports, cheaper food, and fading memories of the financial crisis are setting Britain up for a strong year in 2015,” said economist Rob Wood from Berenberg bank.“As the general election race hots up increasing talk of political uncertainty hurting UK growth has been doing the rounds. But today’s PMI suggests that a bull market in such talk is not translating into a bear market for business expansion”Within the survey, there was promising news for job hunters as the employment index surged to 57.1 from December’s 54.8.And strong business activity is set to continue with the new orders index rising to 58.1 in January. from 57.

The Guardian indulges in a bit of tax planning

first_imgIt’s tough being a newspaper – we should know. On one hand you need to stay relevant in the age of 24-hour news and Twitter and all the rest of it. On the other you need to find enough cash to keep going. All while publicly displaying your work every day, and facing the possible criticism that follows. In which case perhaps we shouldn’t be too harsh on the apparent discrepancy between the Guardian’s preaching over tax avoidance, and the commercial offerings it makes to its readers. Tax planner-come-tax scutiniser The Guardian Just a few days after the ‘paper said that chancellor George Osborne should be “embarrassed” because he “once advised people to use ‘clever financial products’ that could help them reduce care costs and inherit­ance tax,” the advert shown here appeared last weekend. “Guardian Investing, provided by Skipton Financial Services, offers specialist advice on tackling inheritance tax,” it says.

Jobsite CareerBuilder.co.uk asked 500 employers what their worst body language bugbears were, and although some of the results (not making eye contact) were fairly predictable, others (too many hand gestures) were pretty surprising.1.Failing to make eye contact2.Failing to smile3.Playing with something on the table4.Fidgeting too much in their seat5.Crossing their arms over their chest6.Having bad posture7.Having a weak handshake8.Playing with their hair or touching their face9.Having a handshake that’s too strong10.Using too many hand gesturesThe report also suggested the top three “instant dealbreakers” – catching a candidate lying, a candidate answering a call or text during the interview, and, rather unexpectedly, a candidate who appears “arrogant or entitled”.What can you do to stop yourself doing that stuff? Rehearse, suggests Rosemary Haefner, human resources chief at the jobsite. Recording yourself answering common interview questions may also help – but being prepared and researching the company will also help. But most of all, “just breathe”, she adds. “Taking a few deep breaths prior to the interview can help relieve some of the anxiety that leads to fidgeting or other nervous tics later on.” Here are the worst body language mistakes you can make in a job interview, according to employers Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.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.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com Sharelast_img read more

Eurozone prices bounce back as deflation ends

first_img whatsapp The Eurozone has escaped deflation, officials figures yesterday confirmed.Annual inflation in the Eurozone was zero per cent in April, according to Eurostat, the EU’s statistical office. It means that prices of goods and services typically consumed by households were the same price in April as a year earlier. The data, which is in line with an earlier estimate, put an end to four months of falling prices in the currency union.Months of weak inflation finally turned negative late last year following a sharp drop in global oil prices. However, inflation remains negative in many individual Eurozone members, with Greece and Cyprus experiencing rates of minus 1.8 and minus 1.7 per cent, respectively. The European Central Bank (ECB) launched a major bond buying programme in March in order to inject cash into the economy and boost spending. It hopes that the programme will bring inflation back to its target of close to, but still below, two per cent. However, the upturn in inflation appears to be largely due to oil prices reversing their recent decline.Annual energy inflation rose to minus 5.8 per cent from minus six per cent in March. Economists now believe inflation will have a higher chance of increasing during the rest of the year, rather than falling back below zero per cent.“Although oil prices should continue to increase later this year, the price growth will be moderate,” said economist Tomas Holinka from Moody’s Analytics. Another factor that could cause inflation to pick up is the euro’s exchange rate. “The weakening euro, which has depreciated around 20 per cent against the dollar since March 2014, will likely push up import prices, contributing to higher inflation,” Holinka added. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

The vote comes after the Irish government agreed to sell its 25 per cent in Aer Lingus to IAG earlier this week, saying that IAG had made “a number of extremely important changes” to its initial offer. The government said it did not foresee any redundancies and that another 635 jobs could be created by 2020.Aer Lingus chairman Colm Barrington praised the deal, saying it would benefit “shareholders, its employees, its customers and Ireland”.IAG now needs to buy the stake owned by Ryanair, which has 29 per cent of Aer Lingus’s shares.If the deal completes Aer Lingus will be back under the leadership of Willie Walsh, IAG’s chief, who led Aer Lingus from 2001 to 2005. last_img read more

News / Shippers demand innovation from their favourite 3PLs, but will they pay for it?

first_img Freight service providers are trapped in a classic Catch-22 situation with their major clients, who expect more innovation from their logistics suppliers but frequently fail to pay for it.That was the major conclusion from a recent “voice of the customer” survey, conducted by supply chain community SCM World, of hundreds of multinationals’ transport and supply chain managers on their use of third-party logistics providers.The survey asked respondents to rate their logistics providers on five key service metrics: reliability; speed of response to queries and problems; innovation, in terms of how the 3PL brings new ideas and solutions to customer supply chains; value for money; and scale of impact, in terms of “how vital a service provider is to the shippers’ organisations”. They were asked to rate on scale of one to five, with one representing very poor and five representing excellent.All espondents rated their 3PLs as generally being between three and four on all metrics – however, innovation was routinely rated lowest.Kevin O’Marah, SCM World chief content officer, said: “I think there is an endemic problem from the buyers’ side. They want something beyond just shifting boxes, but they end up grinding down their suppliers on price – the buyers are not paying for what they want, which they say is innovation.“Here is the Catch-22: the qualitative conversations show a desire for more innovation and strategic supply chain thinking, and yet when it comes to the negotiations the discussion goes back to rates and routes.“How do you break out of that self-reinforcing cycle? Because you are not going to get the investment in innovation – to be driven into buying just on cost essentially shuts off the font of innovation that people are developing because service providers have to be paid for innovation, they can’t just do it on their own dime,” he said.Mr O’Marah added, however,  that there were also some shippers that had decided to accept higher freight rates on certain lanes because “they realise they will save money in other ways”.Barry Blake, vice-president of research, added: “In every follow-up discussion we had with [3PL] customers, they said their logistics suppliers needed to be doing more on innovation.”However, he questioned: “But how important is innovation? I think the customer really needs to be more honest with their 3PLs on the need for innovations, while 3PLs need to clarify where their expertise lie.”The top ten 10 3PLs  named by respondents in the poll were DHL, FedEx, UPS, Kuehne + Nagel, DB Schenker, Ceva, Exel, Agility, CH Robinson and Ryder – reflecting that the single largest group of respondents were in the US.FedEx scored highest on reliability, speed and scale of impact, while UPS scored highest on innovation.The survey also revealed that none of the logistics providers scored poorly – rating a score of one or two.
