Euroset confirms pulling its £800m IPO

first_img John Dunne Show Comments ▼ Thursday 14 April 2011 10:22 am The already shaky climate in the UK’s new issues market worsened today as Russian mobile phone retailer Euroset pulled its £800m issue.The flotation has been dogged by uncertainty because of nervousness in the markets, with investors increasingly unwilling to pay up for what they deem to be overvalued stock. City A.M. broke the news at 3pm, after bankers close to the deal said the decision to pull the float was taken around lunchtime.Euroset has now officially confirmed the postponement, with chief executive Alexander Malis citing difficult market conditions as the reason for the delay.“Although there was increased interest from the investment community in Euroset, we decided not to proceed with an IPO in the challenging and volatile market conditions,” Malis said.“The outlook for Euroset is favourable and we remain committed to the Company and to achieving our strategic objectives. Euroset will continue to pursue its strategy of expanding its retail operations going forward and maintaining leadership position in the market. We will keep investors informed about our development plans.”Three issues have been pulled from the London market in the past couple of weeks; Topaz Energy, which wanted to raise £300m; on Tuesday the online payments group Skrill pulled its £80m cash-raising; and the vacuum technology group Edwards last week pulled its £375m offer.There were also a couple of Russian floats pulled from the market last month.The Euroset deal was expected to net Russian billionaire Alexander Mamut more than £500m. Mamut is a shareholder in the troubled retail group HMV and he was also expected to subscribe for shares in Nomos Bank, a Russian IPO set to price within the next few weeks.

Australian ISPs to begin blocking illegal gambling websites

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Oceania Australia Email Address The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is to begin using its powers to order internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to illegal offshore gambling websites. Australian ISPs to begin blocking illegal gambling websites Topics: Legal & compliance The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is to enforce its powers so that internet service providers (ISPs) in the country can begin blocking illegal offshore gambling websites.The authority will instruct ISPs to target sites which continue to target consumers in the country, despite offering products such as online casino and poker, or operating without a gambling licence, in breach of the 2001 Interactive Gambling Act.The ACMA was granted the site-blocking powers in 2017, following the O’Farrell Review into Illegal Offshore Wagering. This was conducted by former New South Wales Premier Barry O’Farrell, and has seen the ACMA’s enforcement powers significantly improved, with the authority now able to impose civil penalties against offenders, and the National Consumer Protection Framework for Online Wagering launched in November 2018. In addition, bookmakers are now prohibited from offering lines of credit to customers, and a loophole allowing in-play bets to be placed over the telephone closed.“The ability to have ISPs block illegal websites will be a valuable additional weapon in the ACMA’s arsenal in the fight against illegal online gambling,” ACMA chair Nerida O’Loughlin commented.“In many cases these sites refuse to pay significant winnings, or only a small portion,” O’Loughlin explained. “Customers had also experienced illegal operators continuing to withdraw funds from their bank account without authorisation.“There is little to no recourse for consumers engaging with these unscrupulous operators.”The ACMA publishes a register of licensed interactive betting services so players can be sure services are legal in Australia. For consumers that have an account with an operator not on the register, the ACMA said that they should withdraw any funds before their ISP blocks the site.The blocking initiative will build on previous efforts by the ACMA to clamp down on illegal online gambling in Australia. Since the authority begin to enforce new offshore gaming rules in 2017, it said more than 65 illegal operators have pulled out of the country. “We have achieved this through working with other regulatory agencies, placing directors of these gambling sites on the Department of Home Affairs Movement Alert List and notifying regulators in the home countries of the sites,” O’Loughlin said.“Public education is also crucial in deterring Australians from using these sites, given many illegal offshore gambling websites target Australians by using Australian themes and images, such as the Australian flag and native animals.”Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts Paul Fletcher said that Australians wagerign up to $400m via illegal sites each year, resulting in around $100m in lost tax revenue.“Too often these offshore operators are defrauding Australians – and their websites typically provide very few – if any – harm minimisation controls,” Fletcher said. “While ACMA has a range of powers to protect Australians from illegal gambling services – including issuing formal warnings and seeking civil penalty orders – it can be difficult to take direct action against faceless companies with no legal presence on our shores.”“This is an important partnership with the Communications Alliance, and I want to acknowledge industry’s support. Working with ACMA, these additional measures give ISPs the ability to block illegal websites, protecting Australians and contributing to a safer online gambling environment.”Image: Max Pixel Tags: Online Gambling 11th November 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliancelast_img read more

ISPCC reports drop in voluntary income

first_img Leading children’s charity, the Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children, has reported a significant drop in voluntary income in 2008.The news follows similar reports from other charities such as Barnardos which recently reported that its income was being badly hit by the deep recession in the Republic of Ireland. The ISPCC’s voluntary income declined from €5.05 million in 2007 to €4.6 million in 2008.The ISPCC decline may, however, pre-date the recession as its voluntary income in 2006 was €5.5 million.

Hands off Grigory Petrenko! The whole world is watching!

first_imgTo add your name/organization to the appeal, email: [email protected]ntMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this To Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti, U.S. President Barack Obama, Head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker:To officials of Moldova, the European Union and the United States:The life of Moldovan political prisoner Grigory Petrenko is in danger. We join with people around the world to demand guarantees for his safety and immediate release from prison.On Nov. 18, attorney Ana Ursachi reported that the Moldovan government, dominated by oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, may be preparing to physically eliminate opposition political leader Petrenko. The regime has spread false information in the media about a connection between Petrenko and two young men arrested on Nov. 13 in Chisinau as alleged “Donbass mercenaries.”Last week, we learned that Petrenko was deliberately exposed to the danger of tuberculosis infection by being taken for daily walks in a courtyard reserved exclusively for TB patients. On Oct. 18, Petrenko was subjected to physical abuse during an illegal and unauthorized nighttime raid on his prison cell by anonymous employees of the Department of Penitentiary Institutions.Petrenko and six of his colleagues were singled out for arrest during a peaceful demonstration on Sept. 6, 2015, and have been held under “preventive arrest” ever since. Their detention has been extended three times so far.On Sept. 30, members of all factions of the Parliamentary Association of the Council of Europe (PACE), of which Petrenko is a former leader and honorary member, signed a statement demanding the immediate release of the political prisoners.The torturous and degrading conditions of imprisonment have been brought to the attention of the United Nations, the European Union, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the U.S. Embassy and other bodies, but no action has been forthcoming.Moldova’s pro-Western, oligarch-dominated regime is the responsibility of the European and U.S. governments, which supported its rise and grip on power for their own geostrategic and profit-driven interests. If anything befalls Grigory Petrenko and his fellow political prisoners, the responsibility will rest on the heads of officials in Washington and Brussels, as well as Chisinau.It is time to act now to secure the release of Grigory Petrenko and his fellow political prisoners, before it is too late! Gregory Butterfield, coordinator, Solidarity with Ukraine Anti-fascists Committee (USA)International Action Center (USA)last_img read more

Investigation into shooting attack on Myanmar journalist goes nowhere

first_img News It occurred while Swe Win was vacationing with a colleague and their two families in the south of the western state of Rakhine. On 30 December, the owner of the guesthouse where they were spending that night received several phone calls from military intelligence officers, police officers and local civilian officials in the nearby town of Thandwe. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an independent inquiry into a clearly targeted shooting attack on Swe Win, the Myanmar Now news website’s well-known editor, in which both civilian and military officials seem to have been involved. It took place 11 months ago, on 31 December 2019, but has only just been revealed by the website. The callers wanted to know about Swe Win’s movements and, in particular, asked the owner to let them know as soon as Swe Win left the next morning. Swe Win told RSF: “Our stories have angered and shamed many individuals in power, which is the only reason why I believe I was shot. This incident was a serious targeted threat with the aim of silencing me and stopping my work. However, as long as I remain alive, I will continue to speak out and to do very professional journalism in a powerful way.” Organisation US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture The local police investigation into the shooting has made no progress in the 11 months since it took place. Forty minutes after Swe Win and his companions left the guesthouse the next morning, the shot that wounded him was fired from behind tall grass as they were turning a corner on a country lane. Shortly thereafter, the local police reported that he had been hit by a piece of flying debris from a dynamite explosion at a nearby rock quarry. Swe Win during a press conference with the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) in Manila on September 6, 2019 (photo: George Calvelo / AFP). December 2, 2020 Investigation into shooting attack on Myanmar journalist goes nowhere Pathetic denials RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Threat Follow the news on Myanmar “In view of the pathetic denials by the Thandwe police, we call on Myanmar’s central authorities to order an independent investigation to shed all possible light on this shocking murder attempt,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The implication of civilian and military officials in this ambush speaks volumes about the methods used by the authorities to intimidate journalists. These methods must stop. The credibility of the rule of law in Myanmar is at stake.” This version was contradicted by the head of the local civilian administration who – in response to Swe Win’s questions three days later – denied that there was any quarry or roadworks in the area. He also denied that the police had been aware of Swe Win’s presence in the region prior to the shooting although his subordinates and the police had questioned the guesthouse owner about his presence. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar RSF_en News In response to a defamation complaint by a follower of the fundamentalist Buddhist monk Ashin Wirathu, Swe Win was arrested at Yangon airport on 30 July 2017. He was then freed on bail but, during the next two years, he had to attend a total of 71 court hearings in Mandalay, each one requiring an 18-hour road trip from his home in Yangon.

Henry Street HQ to expand

first_img Previous articleNorthampton match traffic planNext articleO’Dea promises to ‘kick some ass’ admin Twitter NewsLocal NewsHenry Street HQ to expandBy admin – January 21, 2010 691 HENRY STREET gardai have been granted an extension…. with the acquisition of the leasehold interest in the adjacent former Eircom premises, and designed to relieve the pressure on their existing building.It had been indicated two years ago that the Department of Justice had expressed an interest in section of the now Foreign Aid building across the road, and which had been under construction, with a view to providing long sought after additional space for Henry Street garda personnel.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Contracts have now been signed for the red-bricked former Eircom offices, built in the 1970s by local developer Charles Humphreys.Their new premises, which had been on the market for some time, have five floors of accommodation.The current premises will be retained.Inspector John O’Reilly said that, like all garda stations, the building is to be leased, and that a number of departments, along with Garda training quarters, would be transferred there.“We are expected to be in situ for July of this year”, said the Inspector, confirming there would not be any additional holding cells in their new premises. The cells are to remain at the existing station.There are around 350 garda personnel in the district, which includes Henry Street, Mayorstone and Mary Street stations.Plans are also in place to relocate Limerick District Court to a more secure location in the city, and while a Henry Street site had been widely mooted, the likelihood now is that it will be built on a vacant space in Mulgrave Street, and close to the prison.
