Satellite broadcaster BSkyB nears key 10m subscriptions

first_img Share Satellite broadcaster BSkyB nears key 10m subscriptions KCS-content SATELLITE broadcaster BSkyB is tipped to say it is edging closer to its target of 10m subscribers when it reports first quarter trading on Friday.Broker Numis Securities expects the group to reveal that it picked up 53,000 subscribers in the three months to September, leaving it with more than 9.9m customers. Numis also forecasts that BSkyB will unveil an eight per cent rise in revenue to £1.49bn, driven by a 14 per cent increase in retail revenue to £1.27bn, and pre-tax profit of £227m.Investors will also be interested in anything the broadcaster says about shareholder Rupert Murdoch’s attempt to seize full control of the company. BSkyB has rejected Murdoch’s offer of £8bn for the 61 per cent of the company that the media tycoon does not already own, but the pair have agreed to start work on the regulatory details of a potential deal.BSkyB’s media rivals have got together to oppose the deal, writing to business secretary Vince Cable to express concerns that it could threaten competition and give Murdoch too much political influence. Signatories to the letter include publishers of newspapers including the Daily Mirror, Guardian and Daily Telegraph. whatsapp Sunday 17 October 2010 11:34 pm whatsappcenter_img Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The holiday parks business was placed in administration after admitting it was struggling to cope with £40m worth of debts.Pontin’s employs around 850 staff across five sites in Somerset, Sussex, Suffolk, Wales and Merseyside.Moriarty said all five sites would continue to trade as normal and no redundancies of park staff have been made. She said she had already received 12 emails from parties expressing interest in Pontin’s over the weekend but had “yet to review the quality of the interest expressed”.Moriarty added she believed a sale could be achieved in two to three months but that she was in no hurry insisting if a sale was not achieved in that time the administrators would implement a holding strategy. “We will be attempting to value the business both in its current state and where it can move to. One of the things we want to do is build a business plan showing where the business can be in the next three years,” she added.Pontin’s bank Santander is providing working capital for 12 months while the business is restructured or sold.

Daimler and Rolls confirm £2.7bn bid for Tognum

3i mandate will be coup for BarCap’s Renwick

first_imgMonday 14 March 2011 8:53 pm whatsapp 3i mandate will be coup for BarCap’s Renwick IF, as seems likely, 3i decides to appoint Barclays Capital as its joint corporate broker at the end of the month it will be further proof that Barclays’s strategy of building up its equities business is bearing fruit.Since hiring Jim Renwick as head of UK Equity Capital Markets and corporate broking in April 2009, Barclays Capital has won six FTSE 100 brokerships.Renwick, formerly of UBS, must take a lot of the plaudits for this but it has to be said that the bank will also be benefiting from the strong lending relationships it already has with clients, to which it can now offer equity advice.Some say that Renwick will be hard pressed to serve the bank’s growing number of broking clients, which include Barclays (no surprise there), National Grid and Resolution.But the team is a dozen strong and includes other experienced names such as Alisdair Gayne (ex Morgan Stanley), Jon Bathard-Smith (also ex Morgan Stanley) and Bertie Whitehead (formerly of Citigroup). “So long as Barclays Capital employs enough supporting players, it will be able to keep its growing number of clients happy,” says one corporate broker.As well as the corporate brokerships, Barclays Capital was also chosen as one of three advisers to the LSE on its bid for Canada’s TMX, alongside RBC Capital Markets and Morgan Stanley.Joshua Critchley, the former Goldman Sachs banker turned head of RBC’s equity capital markets and corporate broking, is still getting tongues wagging with the sky-highpackages being offered to bankers to join his team.Talk at the PLC awards dinner the other evening was of the £350,000ish pay and golden hello packages said to be being offered to encourage people like former Arden chief executive Jeremy Grime and colleague Sarah Spikes to join RBC.Together with Peter Lenardos, the three Arden colleagues last year topped the Extel survey.Tough for Arden, which by all accounts is a good place to work and yet can not really compete with the sort of sums on offer from RBC – but one must be a little concerned for the Canadian firm if it doesn’t win the business to match the pay packages it is offering. The Arden hires come on top of others from Cenkos.Meanwhile, it’s not all one-way traffic out of Arden.

Maybe the infighting has led to a creative tension that is good for business. Whatever the reason, investors should use the 2.9 per cent fall in M&B’s shares yesterday as a buying opportunity.The group holds some of the best assets in the business, including brands like O’Neill’s, Harvester and All Bar One. And it has a 16 per cent share of the attractive food-led pubs market – more than any of its competitors. Its balance sheet doesn’t look bad either; while others are nursing debt hangovers, Numis reckons M&B has a war chest of £500m to spend on acquisitions.M&B trades on an enterprise multiple of 8.3 compared to 8.8 for the rest of the sector (a better measure than the standard price to earnings ratio due to the sector’s indebtedness. It deserves to be rated more highly; investors who get in now could make a tidy profit. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The answer is an emphatic yes, as proved by the trailblazing trajectory of Michelle McDowell of engineer BDP, who was last night crowned Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year.As chair of civil and structural engineering, McDowell helped increase BDP’s turnover to £96m through her involvement on projects such as the £70m redevelopment of the Albert Hall – and her achievements helped her beat Joanna Shields, EMEA vice-president of Facebook; Susie Hewson, director of Natracare; and Jillian Maclean, founder of Drake & Morgan to take home the champagne bottle-shaped silver trophy.The evening’s keynote speaker was former City minister Lord Myners, who declared the private sector’s failure to recognise female talent is the “largest missed opportunity in the economy at the moment”.“The private sector has been blinded by tradition and prejudice,” he told the packed audience at Claridges, before predicting that at least five FTSE 100 boards will have a majority of women directors within ten years – but solely on merit, rather than “political correctness”. So no quotas, then. last_img read more
