The judge, which delayed the shareholder vote on the takeover by 20 days, criticised Barcap, saying the bank wanted to gain fees on both the sell side and buy side of the deal. “Barclays secretly and selfishly manipulated the sale process to engineer a transaction that would permit Barclays to obtain lucrative buy-side financing fees,” the judge wrote. Barclays said it “strongly disagrees with characterisations that are based on an incomplete factual record.” The bank said it contacted 53 potential buyers “in an extensive, robust, and public sale that yielded no higher price.” Wednesday 16 February 2011 7:41 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Racing consortium strikes £130m Tote deal

first_img Racing consortium strikes £130m Tote deal Regions: UK & Ireland Tags: Online Gambling Race Track and Racino A consortium of leading figures in the racing industry has reportedly agreed to purchase a stake in the Tote, with a view to taking full ownership. In February, it was reported that Betfred co-owner Fred Done was seeking to sell a 25% stake in the brand and had reached advanced talks with an unidentified consortium. At the time, it was suggested that Betfred could offload the stake for over £30m (€34.2m/$40.3m), thus valuing the Tote at between £125m and £150m. Sky News has now reported that Alizeti Capital has handed over approximately £20m to Betfred as an up-front payment in return for a minority stake. However, Sky News said this forms part of a wider strategy, with plans for the consortium to take full ownership of the Tote within the next five years in a deal worth more than £130m in total. The agreement would also include the purchase of Rewards for Racing (R4R), a loyalty programme focused on the horseracing industry that currently partners with Bet365, Betfred, Coral and Betfair. In a pitch to prospective shareholders, Alizeti Capital spoke of a three-to-five year partnership with Betfred, with Alizeti taking a 25% of the Tote business-to-business operation and a 75% stake in its digital and on-course consumer betting arm. “At the end of the partnership Alizeti Capital will buy out Betfred’s remaining equity stakes according to a clearly defined formula,” a racing industry figure who has agreed to back the deal told Sky News.Related article: Betfred in talks over Tote sale – report 22nd May 2018 | By contenteditor Finance Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Horse racing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter A consortium of leading figures in the racing industry has reportedly agreed to purchase a stake in the Tote, with a view to taking full ownership Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I wouldn’t consider buying Town Centre Securities shares for my ISA though. It’s true rent collection at the property giant has been stronger than that of many of its peers. It’s collected 75% of rents for the current quarter, for example. But I worry this UK share will increasingly struggle as the economy toils and consumer confidence dives. According to GfK, confidence has slumped to its lowest since May as consumers fret over the prospect of surging unemployment. Footfall at its retail assets and car parks are also under threat from more mass lockdowns, and rents at its office spaces are pressured by the toiling UK economy. So I think Town Centre Securities is a risk-heavy buy today. I’m not even tempted by its 3.8% forward dividend yield.I’d be far happier to invest in Warehouse REIT.Unlike the aforementioned property stock, which also stands to lose out from the growing popularity of e-commerce, this other UK share is benefitting from surging online shopping traffic. Warehouse REIT has ambitious plans to continue building its portfolio of in-demand assets as well. And it purchased two logistics assets in the East Midlands and Cheshire last month for £82m. It has the financial firepower to continue on its base-building programme too, as well as to keep paying big dividends. This is why the property powerhouse boasts a massive forward 5.8% yield. See all posts by Royston Wild Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Why on earth would anyone want to invest for their future in a Cash ISA? Interest rates are lurking below 1% — and threatening to continue falling as the Bank of England flirts with more interest rate cuts. That means they offer very little opportunity for us to make a big cash pile for retirement. This is why I invest in UK shares instead.Link Group says the average dividend yield on UK shares for the next year ranges between 3.3% and 3.6%. Throw in the possibility that share prices could rebound strongly over the next year or two, and it seems to me like buying UK shares is a much better option than using a Cash ISA.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…3 BIG-yielding UK sharesLet’s say, however, I’m content with that sort of dividend yield. And I want to get generate larger income flows with your hard-earned cash. Well here are three top UK shares with chunky yields. But which would I buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA?Admiral Group is a perfect pick for those seeking market-beating dividends. The yield for this year sits at a whopping 5.4%. And it has a few tricks up its sleeve to continue paying big shareholder rewards. It has excellent brand power, and its products are also indispensable, irrespective of broader economic conditions. This allows the profits to keep rolling in whatever the weather. Furthermore, Admiral has had to pay out fewer claims recently as lockdowns have reduced traffic volumes. That gives its balance sheet an extra shot of juice and provides more wiggle room to continue paying bumper dividends.

The Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) share price has crumbled by more than 50% from its all-time high of 284p, printed in the middle of February. However, despite this performance, the stock is still up more than 3,000% over the past 12 months. Shares in the cryptocurrency miner have been falling even though its underlying fundamental performance has improved. Mining output has increased steadily over the past six months.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…In its latest trading update, Argo said it mined 166 Bitcoin or Bitcoin equivalent (BTC) in May, compared to 163 in April. This brought the total amount of BTC mined year-to-date to 716 BTC and the total BTC it holds to 1,108.Unfortunately, the company has been hurt by the falling Bitcoin price. As a result, despite the increase in mining output for May, revenue was just £5.5m, down from £6.7m in April.Improving fundamentals Cryptocurrency prices have been under pressure over the past few weeks following crackdowns in countries like China. In addition, concern about the environmental impacts of mining assets like Bitcoin has also hurt sentiment. And, as the price of Bitcoin has declined, sentiment towards the Argo Blockchain share price has also deteriorated. Companies like Argo are working towards creating a more environmentally friendly Bitcoin mining network. Last month, Argo and cryptocurrency tech firm DMG Blockchain Solutions signed a “crypto climate accord” to promote industry decarbonisation.The company has also acquired two data centres in Quebec, Canada, powered almost entirely by hydroelectricity. This should lower its carbon footprint. These initiatives should help reduce the overall carbon impact of Bitcoin mining on the environment. However, it’s impossible to say whether these initiatives alone will reverse the declines in the cryptocurrency price.Argo Blockchain share price outlookSince the end of May, the price of Bitcoin has only continued to fall. Unfortunately, this suggests Argo’s revenue may disappoint once again in June. This implies the Argo Blockchain share price may continue to fall. Despite the company’s higher BTC output, the lower selling cost will mean the corporation will earn less for each coin produced. At the same time, the group is having issues expanding its output.Production delays have impacted its purchase of mining machines. This has held back the firm’s expansion plans. The new machines are expected to be delivered later than the original order for between September and October.Having said all of the above, if BTC prices suddenly spike higher, the company’s fortunes could change dramatically. This would have a substantial positive impact on the business and its prospects. Not only would revenues increase, but the value of the BTC on Argo’s balance sheet would also rise.This double tailwind would likely lead to a positive outcome for the Argo Blockchain share price. Still, with so much uncertainty hanging over its share price, I think it could continue to fall. As such, I wouldn’t buy the stock for my portfolio today. I believe other small-cap stocks on the market offer the potential for higher rewards with a lower level of risk.  The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar See all posts by Rupert Hargreavescenter_img Image source: Getty Images.

Classic Clip – the Ref makes his point

first_imgTuesday Nov 6, 2007 Classic Clip – the Ref makes his point As the Northern hemisphere rugby scene welcomes back many players that were away on World Cup duty, we look at a classic moment brought to us by not a star player, but by a referee for a change. The game was between London Irish & Gloucester recently, and as referee Sean Davey spots a repeated infringement, you can see the opposition players around him clapping their hands expecting the inevitable. He calls across the guilty party to give him what we expect to be his marching orders. What he does is absolutely classic. For pulling it off perfectly and doing something that has probably never been done by a ref anywhere before at this level of sport we say well done, Sir.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies , See it to Believe it Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 30 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
