EnQuest said it was “very disappointed by the recent unexpected UK Budget decision” to hike the oil profit levy from 20 to 32 per cent, adding that it “will render some small field investments uneconomic”. But the firm posted a pre-tax profit of $169.4m (£104m), up from a pro-forma profit of $24.9m last year, and said that its developments still have significant potential. Chief executive Amjad Bseisu said the tax increase might help the firm’s acquisition drive: “We can acquire assets at prices that are lower than they were just a few weeks ago,” he said on a conference call. “We can look at an acquisition in the half a billion to a billion dollar range quite easily.”EnQuest would consider assets put up for sale by oil majors such as BP in the North Sea, Bseisu said, but was wary of taking on high decommissioning costs at some of the more mature fields.EnQuest also plans to spend $300m on drilling and exploration this year, according to its results statement. Pro-forma production rose 55 per cent on last year to 21,000 barrels of oil per day, as EnQuest ramped up work on the North Sea assets of Petrofac and Lundin Petroleum that it acquired last year when it floated. Reported revenues more than doubled to $583.5m during 2010. Tags: NULL

STS Gaming Group owner invests in Better Collective 16th September 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Finance Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Mateusz and Zbigniew Juroszek, the owners of Polish bookmaker STS Gaming Group, has purchased 140,000 shares in affiliate marketing giant Better Collective for approximately €1m (£889,773/$1.1m).The investment builds on an existing relationship between the two businesses, after STS signed an affiliate partnership with Better Collective in March of last year.“We see a lot of potential in the company, which has already announced its third acquisition this year – two in the US, one in the UK,” STS chief executive Mateusz Juroszek (pictured) said.“It is very important to us, as Better Collective is such a large and very well-known entity, especially in the Americas where the iGaming industry is growing rapidly,” he continued. “This investment is our long-term asset; we consider increasing the capital commitment of Better Collective in the future.”Better Collective’s current portfolio includes over 2,000 websites and products, including the online gambling information website MyBettingSites.co.uk that it acquired earlier this month.STS has this year focused on expanding into more European countries outside of its core market – and claims to be the first Polish bookmaker to do so – with a focus on Germany and the UK in particular.
Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares How I’d invest £500 per month in cheap FTSE 100 shares in an ISA to get rich and retire early Investing £500, or any other amount, each month in a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares in an ISA could help to bring your retirement date a step closer.Certainly, there are risks facing investors. They include political risks in the US and UK, as well as the prospect of a continued rise in coronavirus cases worldwide.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, through buying financially-sound businesses that have the potential to enjoy improving operating conditions over the long run, you could build a surprisingly large retirement nest egg.FTSE 100 growth opportunitiesAt the present time, it is difficult to assess which FTSE 100 sectors could offer the strongest growth opportunities over the long run. After all, coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown may have fundamentally changed a number of industries.However, long-term growth trends may be intact for a number of industries. For example, an ageing world population means that demand for healthcare goods and services may rise. As such, investing in large-cap pharmaceutical, consumer healthcare and medical devices companies could prove to be a shrewd move. They may experience resilient (and high) growth rates in the coming years.Similarly, online retailers could experience rising demand for their products as consumers continue to switch from in-store to web sales. Other FTSE 100 sectors such as banking, consumer goods and resources may also experience stronger trading conditions than investors are currently pricing-in. this may present good value buying opportunities, with many of those businesses trading below their long-term average valuations.Financial strengthAs well as buying FTSE 100 shares that offer strong long-term growth potential, purchasing businesses with sound finances could be a shrewd move in the present economic climate. They may be more likely to survive what could be a difficult period for the global economy. They may also have the potential to use low asset valuations to improve their market position through acquisitions.Companies with low debt and access to significant amounts of liquidity may be lower-risk than their peers. This could put them in a position of strength in an uncertain economic period, and may allow them to command higher valuations as the world economy recovers.DiversificationAs ever, it is important to diversify when investing in FTSE 100 shares. Some companies and sectors may struggle to mount a sustained comeback after recent economic events. Therefore, reducing your reliance on them through owning a wide range of companies is a logical step for any investor to take.Since the cost of sharedealing is now much lower than it ever has been, building a diverse portfolio of shares is an achievable goal for the vast majority of investors. It could improve your portfolio’s risk/reward ratio, and help you to build a surprisingly large nest egg that helps you to retire early.

Charleena LylesTwo days after the June 16 acquittal of the cop who murdered Philando Castile in Minnesota, Seattle cops murdered a Black mother of three in her own home. The June 18 shooting of Charleena Lyles, who was pregnant, was in front of her children.A gathering of family and friends outside Lyles’ home protested her murder that very day.Lyles had called the cops to report a burglary in her home. Asking for help, she was instead gunned down.Her relatives have stated that she had recently had some mental health issues and that race was also an issue. Two white cops shot her from close range with five to seven bullets.The Lyles’ family was living in housing for formerly homeless families in Magnuson Park. Seattle, especially in the Black community, faces a huge gentrification crisis leading to homelessness. Since the killing of Lyles, many people are saying that the social service system failed her and that any intervention allegedly on her behalf should have come with a mental health specialist, along with other social services, not by two racist cops.A network of family and friends who loved and respected Lyles, including the Social Equality Caucus of the Seattle Education Association, held a vigil and press conference outside the Lyles’ home on June 20. Many voiced their outrage and called for justice.City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant, a member of the NAACP and Socialist Alternative, demanded a town hall meeting where the Lyles family can voice their concerns and demand for justice from the police. Word came during the rally that the City Council had agreed to that demand.Then the Lyles family led the crowd, which had swelled to well over 1,000 people, on a three-mile march to the Montlake Bridge. They chanted, “Charleena! Say Her Name!” At the bridge, cops blocked the way. When the crowd confronted them, the city raised the drawspan of the bridge to shut down its own street to block the march.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Three rockets were fired at the Palestine Hotel, which above all houses TV and radio journalists, and one rocket was fired on the nearby Sheraton Hotel, which also houses many foreign reporters.

Stanislav Pashkovsky, the head of the General Directorate of Internal Affairs (GUVD) for the Moscow region, who wanted to identify the sources for a February exposé on riot police corruption and abuses.Col. Pashkovsky was after the recordings of interviews that members of the OMON riot police gave anonymously to reporter Ilya Barabanov for the story entitled “OMON Slaves,” which has been the subject of an interior ministry libel suit since April. Barabanov is the winner of this year’s Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism.During yesterday’s raid, The New Times editor Yevgenia Albats agreed to give Pashkovsky a transcript of the interviews but refused to name the sources or surrender the recordings, which would have allowed the police to identify the sources. The grounds she gave for refusing were article 41 of the media law, which protects journalists’ sources.“We will not betray the people who entrust us with information,” she said, adding that there was no doubt that “the leading goal of this operation was to scare the journalists of The New Times and other news media.”Reporters Without Borders issued a press release on 14 April (http://en.rsf.org/russie-police-try-to-search-moscow-weekly-14-04-2010,37010.html) condemning that day’s abortive attempt by Moscow police to raid The New Times on the basis of a search order issued by Moscow’s Tverskoi district court that was being appealed. Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for The New Times and all its staff, who have a record of doing major investigative stories on subjects of great public interest, the very essence of quality journalism. As the 14 April release said, the protection of reporters’ sources is an essential component of media freedom and without it there could be no investigative journalism.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the Moscow region GUVD’s repeated raids aimed at forcing Kommersant, Svobodnaya Pressa, Gazeta.ru and Novaya Gazeta journalists to disclose their sources.

RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on China April 27, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is shocked by a press campaign being waged against the press freedom organisation in the Chinese media, particularly those closely linked to the government.This comes at a time when the organisation’s website is also coming under an unprecedented level of cyber-strikes.The official Chinese press, based on false and distorted statements, accuses the organisation of seeking to destabilise the Olympic Games on behalf of the CIA or US neo-conservatives, accusing the organisation’s activists of being “trouble-makers” and “racists”.The websites sohu.com and sina.com have relayed these attacks, sometimes on their front page. Leading the condemnation of Reporters Without Borders has been the nationalist daily Huan Qiu Shi Bao (Global Times) which is run by the international section of the official People’s Daily. It has published long libellous articles about the organisation.In one such article on 24 April, the paper, which is also running virulent campaigns against France and the Dalai Lama, accused the “French organisation RSF of sabotaging the games for financial purposes”.The website of Xinhua net, the official Chinese news agency, has also relayed these accusations.At the same time, the Reporters Without Borders’ website has been the victim of unprecedented cyber-strikes. Hackers have several times threatened to bring down the site. “We advise recent visitors to the website rsf.org to activate their computer’s anti-virus software as a precaution”, the organisation said.”These vicious and dishonest attacks are all the easier since Reporters Without Borders’ output is never published in the Chinese press and the organisation’s website is blocked,” it said.”This campaign is aimed solely at punishing our peaceful protests during the Olympic torch relay”, it said. “The attacks, orchestrated by the official media, do nothing to respond to the concerns of international public opinion, shocked by the crackdown in Tibet and against human rights activists in China.””The authorities should, instead of showing such aggression, release prisoners of opinion and allow the foreign press to go to Tibet”, concluded the organisation which has campaigned in connection with the Beijing Olympics since 2001.

Clare County Council had requested inclusion on the steering group, having spent a considerable amount of time and resources formulating its County Development Plan, which includes special provisions for Shannon Airport.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is unacceptable that Clare’s key management authority has been excluded from a process whereby the county’s primary infrastructure asset is being restructured,” said Mayor Pat Hayes, following the release of steering group details.“No local authority representative is on any of the three groups”.He said it is difficult to see how the new entity will help to achieve strong regional development, when Clare County Council, particularly in its role as planning authority for Clare, is excluded from the restructuring process”.Calling on the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar TD, to explain this decision, he queried the exclusion of reference to Aer Rianta International.“The proposed position regarding the retention of Aer Rianta International by the Dublin Airport Authority does not appear to be included in the terms of reference of the steering group which is troubling considering the group was established in Shannon and contributes 30 million euro annually to DAA, County Clare and the wider region.“It has every right to demand that it be shown a proper and adequate return on its investment in, and development of, a highly profitable enterprise,” stated the Mayor.Meanwhile Shannon Development CEO, Vincent Cunnane and Shannon Airport representatives, have welcomed the group details, with Shannon Development stating its commitment to “engaging with the various groups to chart the future direction that will secure the viability and sustainability of the airport in the years ahead.“We are acutely conscious that the new operating entity will need to have the right tools to carry out its airport and wider aviation business activities and we look forward to contributing to the establishment of optimum structures and strategies to ensure that crucial staffing, financial and operational arrangements are in place to allow the airport and wider region to flourish”.Shannon Airport Director, Mary Considine, said the airport has a pivotal role as the premier international gateway for the wider West of Ireland region.“We look forward to working with the steering group and task forces that have been announced”.
in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers are likely to see monthly mortgage payments rise at a slower rate in 2019, according to the latest data from CoreLogic. While the median home sale price rose about 4 percent year over year in January 2019, the principal-and-interest mortgage payment on that median-priced home increased almost 11 percent because mortgage rates rose by half a percentage point over that period. Despite the increase, rates continued to ease after January this year and some mortgage rate and home price forecasts suggest payments will rise at a much slower pace through the rest of the year.CoreLogic’s Home Price Index Forecast predicts a 5.2 percent annual gain in home prices by January next year, and homebuyers are expected to lose less purchasing power this year compared with 2018, as long as forecasts for prices, rates and income hold.The typical mortgage payment has trended higher in recent years, but CoreLogic notes that as of January 2019, the typical payment is still 32.5 percent below the all-time peak of $1,275 in June 2006, when the average mortgage rate back in June 2006 was about 6.7 percent, compared to 4.5 percent in January 2019.The typical mortgage payment is expected to rise from $861 in January 2019 to $889 by January 2020, a 3.3 percent year-over-year gain, a much slower growth rate than the 8.8 percent gain a year earlier. CoreLogic states that in nominal terms, the typical mortgage payment’s year over year increase in January 2020 would be 5.9 percent, or just over half of the 10.5 percent gain a year earlier.While mortgage rates have been slowing, delinquencies have been declining as well. According to the latest Loan Performance Insights Report from CoreLogic, mortgage delinquencies fell by 0.9% year over year in March. Frank Nothaft, CoreLogic Chief Economist cites recent employment increases as one reason for the improved loan performance.”Income growth, home appreciation and sound underwriting combined have pushed delinquency rates to their lowest level in 20 years,” said Nothaft. “The low delinquency rates on home mortgages are a contrast to the rising delinquency rates on consumer credit. While home mortgage delinquency rates are at, or are near, their lowest levels in two decades, delinquency rates for auto and student loans are higher now than they were during the early and mid-2000s.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Rate Growth Shifts as Delinquencies Drop Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
