Grant Thornton reports 40pc surge in annual pre-tax profit

first_img Tags: NULL Monday 18 October 2010 8:24 pm KCS-content Business and financial adviser Grant Thornton yesterday said annual pre-tax profits grew by 40.2 per cent to £77.6m following its merger with Robson Rhodes and a period of restructuring and cost-cutting.In the year to 30 June the firm’s revenue rose 0.4 per cent to £379.7m. Advisory revenue grew 11.1 per cent to £151.2m but Assurance revenue was down by 6.2 per cent to £135.5m and Tax by 4.8 per cent to £93.0m.Chief executive Scott Barnes said Grant Thornton’s profitability and cash position had created a platform for growth as the firm emerges from the difficult economic environment. Grant Thornton’s strategy is focused on acquisitions to build on its organic growth. This week it acquired litigation support consultancy Legal Inc for integration into its forensic practice.“Our overall performance has been excellent in these conditions. We acted earlier than some others and this is reflected in our 40 per cent growth in pre-tax profits for the year and, against the backdrop of the recession, we have done well to maintain our overall level of revenue,” Barnes said. “We need to increase our profitability further but this was the start I was looking for in my first full year leading the firm.” whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.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.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child Grant Thornton reports 40pc surge in annual pre-tax profit last_img read more

Rio State Lottery opens sports betting tender process

first_imgLOTERJ has projected revenue of BR$400m for the first year of operation, increasing to BR$1.06bn in the contract’s fifth year. The State Lottery of Rio de Janeiro (LOTERJ) has opened the bidding process for operators interested in providing the creation, distribution and sale of lottery and fixed-odds sports betting products in the state. Rio State Lottery opens sports betting tender process A minimum payout limit of 40% of the amount played on lottery games will be put in place under the tender’s rules, although this percentage will not apply to fixed-odds sports betting. The tender will take place on 5 July this year, for an estimated contract value of BR$260.5m (£34.7m/€40.3m/$49.2m) over its 5-year duration. Waldir Marques, undersecretary for prizes and sweepstakes at the Secretariat of Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (SECAP) within the Ministry, said at that time that at the national level, multiple operators would be allowed to enter the market. The decision to pursue that model was agreed in February last year, after plans to develop a qualitative framework, where any operator that met the licensing requirements could apply, was scrapped.  Any other organisations looking to take part in the tender will therefore likely need to be part of a consortium, consisting of a WLA member and a company with access to over 3000 points of sale in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Any non-Brazilian companies looking to take part in the process must be partnered with a Brazil-based entity in order to be considered. The winning company or consortium will be contracted for the creation and distribution of lottery products including draw-based and instant win games, as well as fixed-odds sports betting products, and the execution of advertising campaigns related to the games.

Sports betting Given these criteria, the only Brazilian company which would meet the threshold to take part in the tender is the Caixa Econômica Federal, which runs Brazil’s national lottery. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 20th May 2021 | By Conor Mulheir The tender is aimed at operators who are able to create and distribute gaming products both online and offline, and is limited to companies who reach several criteria. In August last year, Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro signed a decree formally adding sports betting to the country’s Investment Partnership Programme portfolio, handing the process of selecting sports betting operators nationally to the state-owned Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social (BNDES), and the Ministry of the Economy. LOTERJ has stated that the average expected prize payout on the games is 55% of the amount played. One requirement is that the company must have over 3000 points of sale in the state, with digital capabilities, and the company must also be a member of the World Lottery Association (WLA).

Stock market crash: 2 cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA today to get rich and retire early

first_img Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. Stock market crash: 2 cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA today to get rich and retire early See all posts by Peter Stephens The stock market crash has caused many UK shares to experience significant declines in their prices. While this may dissuade some investors from buying them, they could offer impressive long-term recovery potential as the prospects for the economy gradually improve.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer wide margins of safety. Their sound strategies could make them worthy of investment in a tax-efficient account such as an ISA. Over time, they could improve your prospects of retiring early.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…A declining bank in the stock market crashAmong the biggest fallers in the 2020 stock market crash have been banking shares such as Lloyds (LSE: LLOY). Its share price has declined by 55% since the start of the year as investors have become increasingly cautious about the prospects for the UK economy.However, the company could outperform many of its sector peers as it invests in digital growth. For example, in its first-half results it reported that it now has 17m digitally-active customers. Moreover, it reported record high digital customer satisfaction ratings. This could help to differentiate it from its peers.Lloyds also reported that it has maintained a disciplined stance on costs. Meanwhile, an improving outlook for retail spending and the housing market could help its share price to recover after the stock market crash. Having fallen heavily this year, it now appears to offer a wide margin of safety.A global consumer brand with growth potentialAnother UK share that has declined in the stock market crash is Burberry (LSE: BRBY). Its share price is down by 37% since the start of the year, with its first-quarter trading update highlighting store closures and lower demand from the overseas travel sector.Despite this, Burberry’s strategy could allow it to produce share price growth over the long run. It continues to invest in sustainable fashion, which could broaden its appeal to a younger demographic. It is also becoming increasingly digital, while its new products have proved popular among new and existing customers under a revised design direction.With Burberry having a strong brand and solid financial position, its shares appear to offer a wide margin of safety relative to its industry peers. As such, it could deliver improving share price performance versus other UK shares.The prospects for UK sharesOf course, UK shares such as Lloyds and Burberry may experience further volatility in the short run. There is even a threat of another stock market crash over the coming months.However, for long-term investors, their recent share price declines suggest that they offer good value for money. Therefore, buying them now in a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA could allow you to take advantage of the stock market’s recent decline to improve your chances of retiring early.

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear From the Orange County Clerk of CourtsThe Orange County Clerk of Courts has been forced to close offices and implement furloughs one day a week due to the financial impact from COVID-19.Starting the week of August 10th, all Clerk Office employees will be furloughed one day per week without pay until October 2, 2020 or until relief funding is obtained. For most employees, that day will be Friday of each week. Clerk offices will be closed for all services each Friday during this time period.“I am saddened and deeply regret that I have to take these steps,” said Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell. “My staff are essential workers and many of them live on tight budgets, so I know this will be a hardship that I wish I could avoid.”The impact on the public and courts may be significant as the Clerk’s Office provides critical and essential services, per statute, to circuit and county courts.While many entities and families have been impacted by COVID-19, its effect is particularly severe for Florida’s Clerks of Court because of the unique way the offices are funded under Florida law. Clerks have no statutory authority to create or maintain a reserve or emergency fund. Clerks are funded by fines, and fees and court costs which they collect, and which have been greatly reduced during the pandemic.The pandemic has created a major challenge for Clerks of the Court across the state requiring a $60 million reduction in operating funds. This resulted in a cut of $3.8 million to the Orange County Clerk’s court operations budget. This amounts to a 53.04% cut to the Orange County Clerks’ 4th quarter budget.The Clerk’s Office is working closely with Orange County Government and the Governor to try and obtain emergency funding to help address this funding crisis.

The client requested an open space that celebrate the view to the port and create privacy from the surrounding. 
The design of the big steel and cedar façade will allow a great view to the port, the hill and the stormy southerly weather; the west windows and the skylights have been placed to gain most of the light without allowing visual and sound intrusion from the neighbour.Save this picture!© Mick Stephenson The building envelope needed to fit in the industrial port area responding to the heritage constraints of the city plan. 
This led the design to keep the original shape of the building, reinterpreting the structure and cladding material.  The new structure should be well above the minimum requirements of the building code in order to withstand future earthquakes providing a feeling of safety to occupants. 
For this we exposed the big steel structure and bracing elements, whilst the walls were built from a SIP lightweight material (structural insulated panel).
The steel structure of the building has been exposed and used to give a visual rhythm to interior, otherwise too dispersive space.Save this picture!Section Remembrance of the existing house damaged in the earthquake should reflect the original use of the building as a warehouse. 
The high ceiling and exposed old trusses is clearly referring to the previous function of the building reinterpreting the meaning of the original shape.Save this picture!© Mick StephensonThe house needed to accommodate a family of three allowing for catering of friends around an open kitchen and large dining environment. 
The layout creates a feeling of openness towards the south façade, whilst creates a more sheltered and intimate area in the back of the building, encouraging visitors to direct their attention towards the living area. The volumes have been designed to create ‘hiding’ space and targeted views. Although the whole space is actually big and open, there are many areas where you can feel protected and sheltered. 
A corner hidden living has been created as a private nook to allow the house to be lived in a variety of atmospheres.Save this picture!© Mick StephensonIndustrial port and surrounding pub noise will need to be addressed.
The glass façade has been built with acoustic double glazing, whilst openings to the rear of 
the building have been minimized.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe original house on the site was featuring a series of openings on the west elevation that allowed the sun to shy into the living area. This was required to be referenced to in the new design.

These were rescued and safely stored by the client who was hoping to reuse them if possible. 
The trusses became an important feature of the new build. Their strengthening was achieved with rusted metal plates and exposed bolts.

BLACK BOX II is the latest in a series of tiny additions impacting existing architecture in a big way. Conceived as a jewelry box, large openings blur the interior/exterior boundary, revealing its treasure of fine cabinetmaking work within through the playful use of complementary surface materials. The BLACK BOX II addition is covered with large plates of iridescent, black fiber cement board, with a perforated motif for the loggia, finely assembled with matching rivets. In contrast, blond wood and light porcelain and ceramics, illuminate the interior. When large windows fold open to incorporate the garden into the home, interior and exterior materials interact to connect spaces. Inside, oak wood paneling covers the walls and ceiling of the shed, while a lattice of western red cedar lines the exterior alcove.Save this picture!© Raphaël ThibodeauThe slate slabs of the terrace adjoin the concrete-like porcelain floor of the kitchen. Heritage of the past, the original oak wood floor of the dining room, preserved and restored, set the tone. The kitchen island, made of solid oak, stands monumentally in the center and serves as an altar to daily rituals. At the perimeter stands, more soberly, white or black furniture and cabinetry. This project is a plea for constructive art, recognizing the complicity between the architect, the builders, and the owners, all actively involved in the search for quality, both technical and aesthetic.

La Paz is a city of mountains, the city in the mountains. Along the Choqueyapu river (from north to south and downhill) the city climbs the hillsides and takes over the valleys. One of these valleys is Achumani, a middle-class neighborhood in which the densification process replaces single-family houses for multifamily apartment buildings.Save this picture!© Lucia LugonesSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!Cortesía de Christian DávilaOn these valleys, 200 meters lower than the city center (3600 meters above sea level), average annual temperature oscillates from 2°C to 16°C and compels architecture to seek the sun as a primary objective.

In order to achieve economical feasibility for every member of the family, the communal costs had to be as low as possible, so a simple reinforced concrete structure is proposed which allows solving the best possible sunlight and ventilation conditions in each one of the eight apartments.Save this picture!© Lucia LugonesSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Lucia LugonesBased on the shape and orientation of the 450 square meter lot (15×30 m), four longitudinal structural axes were proposed, which at the same time define three functional volumes: The first one adjoins the southeastern adjacent lot (least sunlight) and contains the horizontal and vertical circulation (3,00 meters wide). The second one contains the apartment entrances and internal circulation, and the spaces with the less area requirement (3,15 m wide) The third one on the northwest side (most sunlight) contains the living quarters that require a larger area (4,75 m wide + 1,00-meter cantilever)Save this picture!© Lucia LugonesThe area designated for each one of the owners was determined according to their economic capabilities. In order to achieve said area and to define the divisions between apartments, three strategies were adopted: Independent displacement of the transversal axes on each level, Vertical connections between spaces forming duplexes, Displacement of the external edges of determined areas of each apartment configuring projected and recessed volumes which at the same time generated terraces.One of the owners’ requests was to restrict the access to the building from the street, the limit proposed was a closed wall, configured in the most urbanistic and least aggressive way possible and independent both visually and materially of the building.Save this picture!© Lucia LugonesSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Lucia LugonesThe building was materialized with traditional constructive systems and unskilled workforce, distributing the resources based on a cost-benefit hierarchy in every constructive element. For instance, some areas are left with basic concrete flooring, and various elements of fixed furniture were designed as internal divisors to avoid the need of walls, but at the same time large windows were adopted in benefit of the spatial quality, using framing and glazing with good insulation properties and external walls were built with reused wood and thermic insulators in some areas.The results are comparatively-low-cost apartments and common areas of high spatial quality and easy for their inhabitants to make their own.Save this picture!© Lucia LugonesProject gallerySee allShow lessO-asis House / The Ranch MineSelected ProjectsHouse in Vale das Videiras / Rodrigo Simão ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:La Paz, BoliviaLocation to be used only as a reference.
