Profits up at London Capital


first_img Share Tuesday 17 August 2010 7:53 pm Tags: NULL Profits up at London Capital spread betting company London Capital Group, said first-half adjusted pre-tax profit rose 12 per cent yesterday, helped by strong spread betting performance, but cut its interim dividend by 60 per cent. “If the rest of the year follows the route of the first half, we would expect to be paying quite a substantial dividend at the year end,” said chief executive Simon Denham.He said he was optimistic due to the continued growth in the company’s core business and the launch of its Contract for Difference (CFD) platforms. London Capital launched two CFD platforms in the second quarter of 2010. One is an extension of its spread betting site and the second will target retail clients in the Far and Middle East.The company, which offers online spread betting, foreign exchange and broking services, has just opened its first office outside Europe, in Australia.For the six months ended 30 June, adjusted pre-tax profit rose to £4.2m from £3.8m a year ago. And sales increased 61 per cent to £20.9m. However, the firm’s statutory pre-tax profit for the first half fell 74 per cent to £856,000 due to an impairment charge of £3.2m. The company cut its interim dividend to 1p per share from 2.5p per share a year ago. Encouragingly, average daily volumes rose 22 per cent to 31,950 trades in the six month period while average revenue per user almost doubled, from £599 to £1,051. Cenkos Securities is confident London Capital will meet its full-year pre-tax profit estimate of £6.3m, giving earnings per share of 11.2p and a final dividend of 2p.Denham said the company’s CFD product launched in Australia was very competitive.“We are not expecting much more than covering costs by the end of the year [regarding the CFD platforms]”, Denham said, adding that he expects profits from it in 2011.

It should protect the value of investors’ income and capital over the medium to long term,” said Jim Leaviss, head of M&G’s retail fixed interest team, which will run the fund with Ben Lord.The fund launch comes at a time of concern that quantitative easing, central banks’ purchase of government bonds to inject cash into global markets after the Lehman Brothers collapse, will trigger a bout of high inflation in the medium term.Inflation in the UK has exceeded the two per cent target consistently in the last four years, Leaviss said, but he still does not expect high inflation in the short term.“We think there is far too much unemployment, too much overcapacity (for inflation to rise),” he said adding the fund launch was a pre-emptive strike to cope with investor demand. “We are building the fire engines in case there is a fire,” he added.Investors have also shown appetite for fixed-income investments this summer. The global bond sector was the best-selling asset class in July, with net retail sales of £361m. last_img read more

High on his list was investment in green infrastructure, including ear-marking £1bn for a “green investment bank”.He also set aside £1bn for a carbon capture project and £200m for offshore wind technology.Osborne said: “When money is short we should ruthlessly prioritise those areas of public spending which are most likely to support economic growth, including investments in our transport and green energy infrastructure, our science base and the skills and education of citizens.”Richard Lambert, director-general of the CBI, said maintaining capital expenditure will help to promote economic growth. Cultural developments will benefit, with extensions to both the Tate Gallery and British Museum saved by the additional funds. center_img KCS-content More From Our Partners Biden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Wednesday 20 October 2010 8:24 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Chancellor George Osborne said child benefit would remain in place until young people left education “at the age of 18 or even 19” rather than being reduced from 19 to 16.Government officials now said the lower figure had been a “cautious” initial estimate and had not been vetted by the Office of Budget Responsibility.The change means 1.5m families, rather than 1.2m as previously suggested, will lose the benefit.Officials said the lower figure had been a “cautious” estimate and did not take into account those families that would have lost the benefit had the age limit been reduced. The controversial plans, which see those earning more than £43,875 lose the entitlement, would also raise more than double the £1bn annual savings the government had first forecast, to £2.5bn a year, Osborne said. The proposals have been a constant headache for the coalition since they were announced at the Conservative party conference at the beginning of this month. Shortly after the proposals were announced it emerged single income families on more than £43,875 would lose child benefit, while a family in which both parents worked but earned £40,000 each, giving a combined income of £80,000, would still receive the benefit. Labour shadow chancellor Alan Johnson, attacked Osborne over the figures saying: “The discrepancy between previous projections and what the chancellor announced today beggars belief.” Tags: NULL Child benefit cuts hit more Sharelast_img read more


1,800 jobs go at Nokia amid phone delay


first_imgNokia benefited from the cheaper end of the mobile phone market but the average price for its phones rose to €65 — the first annual price rise in almost a decade ­– as new, cheap smart phones like the C5 and the E5 went on sale and parts shortages capped sales of the cheapest phones.“The main contribution here is really from component shortages and that hit us more in the lower end were Nokia is strong,” chief financial officer, Timo Ihamuotila, said.It said it expected part shortages to continue creating problems into 2011 and forecast operating profit margin to be 10-12 per cent in the fourth quarter.Nokia’s N8 model, its first serious rival to Apple’s iPhone, started shipping on the last day of September but sales are yet to start in many markets.Elop said he had decided to delay launching Nokia’s first product using the new MeeGo software platform, saying: “My assessment was that it would be a 2011 event.”Elop is the first non Scandinavian to run the company in its history and only assumed his role last month replacing Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.

Tube strikes caused major delays but failed to paralyse London yesterday


first_img Tube strikes caused major delays but failed to paralyse London yesterday whatsapp whatsapp A THIRD wave of tube strikes failed to paralyse the capital yesterday as London Underground maintained around 40 per cent of trains despite the walkout.Speculation that another strike will take place over Christmas and New Year eased after the Transport Salaried Staffs Association said they will not recommend the action to its members.Some stations were closed yesterday and others experienced severe delays as a fraction of the usual workforce struggled to keep the transport system running. Services are expected to return to normal today.The RMT union insisted the industrial action was a success and said every line on the system was either suspended, part suspended or running ghost trains through closed stations.General secretary Bob Crow said support for the strike remained “rock solid” and questioned Transport for London’s claims that almost half of tube trains were running.Workers are protesting against London Underground’s plan to eliminate 800 jobs through the reduction of station staffing and opening hours at some ticket offices.
