The firm previously announced a profit warning in April of this year, when the board stated that it expected to report a profit of £170m. This was already significantly reduced from the projected range of £220m to £250m profit reported at the time of Serco’s 2013 results. Serco also stated yesterday that contract and balance-sheet reviews had identified likely impairments and onerous contracts totalling around £1.5bn, and said the company is to hold discussions with lenders to negotiate amendments to covenants in place. Rupert Soames, group chief executive, undertook a strategic review of the entire company when he joined the business in May. He stated that Serco had made “rapid progress” with this review in recent weeks.  Soames described yesterday’s ann­ouncement as a “bitter pill”, but added: “It is better for all concerned that we swallow it now and establish a really solid foundation on which to build Serco’s future. “As might be expected, the contract and balance-sheet reviews have encouraged much turning over of stones, and reflects our changing strategy and the latest view of the challenges we face on a few large contracts. These challenges, together with a less pronounced improvement in trading in our second half than we expected, have led us to a more cautious view of 2014 and 2015.” Soames said that Serco’s direction for the future was “clear” – as an international business to government company focusing on justice and im­m­igration, defence, transport, citizen services and healthcare. He commented: “There are a tough couple of years ahead as we make this transition, but it will be worth it.” FACING UP TO PAST MISTAKES■ Serco said it had come to the conclusion that the firm had made “two strategic mis-steps” in recent years. The first was making significant additions to its portfolio, “often into areas that required very different skills”, which had led it to lose “some of its focus” and diluted its operational expertise. ■ The second mistake Serco admitted to was concentrating too much on winning new business with the result that it was now tied in to a number of contracts which are “making large losses”.  ■ Contract reviews have highlighted a “substantial increase in the level of onerous contract provisions”. BEHIND THE DEALANDREW TUSA | BANK OF AMERICA MERRILL LYNCH 1 Andrew Tusa, director corporate broking Europe at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is advising on Serco’s rights issue. 2 Tusa joined the bank in 2005, and is currently based in its London office. He previously spent nine years at Deutsche Bank, where he was head of corporate governance. 3 He was also chairman of the Financial Services Authority’s Listing Authority Advisory Committee, and served on the steering group of the Financial Reporting Council. Also advising…Tusa has previously advised on placings made by mining firm Centamin and property developer RedRow.

Carpetright shares soar 12 per cent as sales rise

first_imgImproving economic sentiment lifted sales at Carpet right and its shares have soared by more than 12 per cent today. The figuresCarpetright — the retailer which kits out homes with carpets, rugs and flooring — said group revenues rose 2.6 per cent to £227.9m for the six months to the end of October, up from £222.2m in the same period last year. The company said that UK revenue rose 5 per cent but this was dragged down by a weaker performance in Europe where revenue fell 9.4 per cent.Why it’s interesting Carpetright has contended with profit warnings as well as the unexpected departure of its chief executive in recent years so these results are something of a turnaround.The company said “[in the UK] improving economic data has begun to feed through into consumer confidence and this is being reflected in consumer spending in our categories.”Nonetheless its outlook did flag potential pitfalls in relation to political and economic developments in the UK and Europe more generally. In May the UK will go to the polls amid an increasingly fragmented mainstream political scene. Additionally, there first signs of a cooling in its once-hot housing market are beginning to emerge. Beyond this, the Eurozone is facing something of an economic quagmire, with dangerously low inflation rates and anaemic economic growth.What Carpetright saidWilf Walsh, chief executive, said:We believe that, with a well researched and well executed strategy, we can begin to reshape Carpetright to ensure the business fully capitalises on its market leading position.These changes will take time to take full effect but we are absolutely focused on maintaining the recent improvements in the performance of the Group, as well as devoting our energies to revitalising our brand and operations in line with contemporary customer expectations.As a team we are excited by the potential that exists and are concentrating hard on executive of this new strategy as we enter 2015.In shortAfter struggling since the global financial crisis Carpetright could finally out of the woods as it looks to revitalise its brand in the new year.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsTele Health DaveRemember Pierce Brosnan’s Wife?

De ja pleut: Thameslink services disrupted because of another #Farringdontrains flood

first_imgWednesday 28 January 2015 9:55 am Share Tags: NULL De ja pleut: Thameslink services disrupted because of another #Farringdontrains flood whatsapp center_img Catherine Neilan Show Comments ▼ whatsapp As Morrisey once warbled, stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before. Thameslink is warning of severe disruption to services because of a flood. No, no, a different one.  And heaven knows commuters are miserable now.  The leak that caused chaos on Monday, has been plugged. But there was another leak, which first caused problems on Friday, and is thought to have resurfaced with engineers reporting more water entering the train tunnel late yesterday.  Thames Water has been working “around the clock” to manage the water levels with pumping equipment, and specialist teams are carrying out full assessments of the pipe and checking roads nearby for any other additional leaks. The good new is that trains are currently running between St Pancras and St Albans – for the time being at least – but there are delays of up to 40 minutes because of signalling problems.  Update: Although Thameslink originally said this would be resolved by 4pm, it is now saying the disruption will last “until at least end of service”.  Thames Water has been very contrite. But of course commuters are fuming. These are just the ones we could publish: Chris Featherstone, head of operational control at Thames Water said: “We’re very sorry for the delays commuters have experienced since Friday.  “We know this is a critical job and we’ve got our best teams working as fast as possible to discover where this water is coming from. We’re investigating every possibility, including checking all our sewers and water pipes in the area, and we will leave no stone unturned to find out what is happening in that tunnel.”  Repair work on the original leak is taking place in the bus lane of Farringdon Road at the junction of Vine Street Bridge. Engineers are also testing water pipes in the area as part of investigations to find out where the second problem has come from. As a result of this, some customers in the area may experience disruptions to their water supply. Mr Featherstone added: “We’d also like to extend our apologies to any customers affected by road works or fluctuations in water supply while we test the pipes. We’re doing everything we can to sort out this problem.” last_img read more

UPDATE: €20 million development for Portlaoise as Laois County Council secure CBS site deal

first_img Pinterest Laois secondary school announces scholarship winners for new academic year Twitter Community UPDATE: €20 million development for Portlaoise as Laois County Council secure CBS site deal New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening WhatsApp TAGSJohn MulhollandLaois County CouncilPortlaoise Train Stationtower hill Land purchased for parking at Portlaoise Train Station In a significant breakthrough for town centre regeneration in Portlaoise it has been confirmed that the Christian Brothers site at Tower Hill is set for a €20m development.Combined with the plans already in motion for the nearby Convent site and the Old Fort quarter, this is a game changer for breathing new life into the heart of the town.County Manager John Mulholland confirmed to councillors today that the CBS site would now be the location for a €20 million development.The Council has acted as a catalyst under its powers from the Planning and Development Act 2000 to enter in to a partnership agreement with the owners of the property and a housing charity.The development of the former CBS site has long been an aspiration of the Council and today’s news is a significant breakthrough.It will mean 80 new social and affordable housing units and almost 100 new car parking spaces, designed to facilitate the hundreds of commuters utilising the adjacent Portlaoise train station on a daily basis.The County Manager explained that the intention was to build one and two-bedroom houses. There is a dire shortage of such units in the county with over 700 on the waiting list for such accommodation with the Council alone.“This is a very important part of our urban regeneration objectives. We are utilising our powers to partner with the owners and an approved housing body,” Mr Mulholland outlined in response to questions from councillors who welcomed the development.“We have an agreement and after today we’ll proceed with formal legal agreements.”The former Christian Brothers lands adjacent to the Railway Station were purchased privately by Ardain Developments Ltd., Leixlip, Co Kildare in 2017. The lands comprise 5.5 acres and are zoned ‘Town Centre’.The site is one of five identified in Portlaoise which are to be developed in line with the strategy of sustainable compact urban development, with the objective of increasing the residential population of the town centre.In November 2018, Laois County Council was allocated €2.343 million under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund in respect of the Cultural Quarter in Portlaoise. Part of that funding is now being utilised to support the development of the car and bicycle park at the CBS lands.Ardain Developments has drafted an outline site plan to develop 80 housing units and 95 car parking spaces on 4.7 acres. There is no proposal to develop the old listed buildings on the site or its immediate environs.The proposed housing units will be predominantly 1 and 2 bed apartment units so as to cater for the 770 applicants on the Council’s list in this category. As part of the deal the developers will construct a car park and bicycle parking area on 1.49 acres of the site and deliver it to the local authority as a turnkey project.The estimated cost outlay to the Council in relation to the car park is €320,000, net of grant assistance. On receipt of ownership the Council will operate a pay and display car park adjacent to the train station.There is no cost to the Council in relation to the provision of the social and affordable housing on the site and all tenants will be allocated from the Council’s Housing List.Apart from the vital need for the new houses there are long standing calls from commuters and councillors for more parking spaces as the train station car park is full each day from early morning.The January meeting of Laois County Council was told that the Council would allocate €320k from funding it had already secured from the Urban Regeneration Fund towards the project which would total in value for an investment of €20m. The Council will only own the car park.However, the approved housing body involved would allocate the new houses to tenants from the Council housing list at no cost to Laois County Council.The local authority see the overall development as fitting well with their overall strategy for town centre renewal, a compact town centre scenario and more residents living in the town, less dependent on cars.Cllr Willie Aird, who said he was a past pupil of the CBS, was delighted to see such progress on this site as it had been going on for years.He commended the Manager and his officials for pulling it together and was delighted that families would be back living in the heart of the town.He believed that this model provided the way forward for other town developments such as on the Abbeyleix Road and he was glad that they would all be going out for public consultation.Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald too was delighted saying that this issue had dragged on for years and was also pleased that the plans would be going on public display.“This is as a result of great foresight from Kieran Kehoe and the council management team,” praised Cllr Mary Sweeney, who said that the train station was very busy even on Sundays and the additional parking spaces were vital.Cllr John Joe Fennelly said that people from all over the county use the train station to attend to their commitments such as hospital appointments and very often at present they can’t get parking. He was glad that the housing envisaged was for one and two-bed units.Cllr Caroline Dwane said that this was an ideal opportunity to get people back living in the town centre as well as providing badly needed parking.Cllr Pauline Madigan said that the idea of using the former CBS site for such good use reminded her of the beautiful Anne Marie Kelly documentary ‘Walking Back to My Heart’ which was so full of nostalgia and wonderful memories of the Town.She too was glad that the entire development and design would be put out to public consultation.SEE ALSO – Gardai release road safety message following recent road deaths Facebook Twitter Pinterest Home News UPDATE: €20 million development for Portlaoise as Laois County Council secure CBS… News Previous articleGardai release road safety message following recent road deathsNext articleCounty Hall finally gets its hands on County Hotel John WhelanJohn Whelan has been a journalist, commentator, columnist, political analyst, campaigner, politician and publisher ever since he was 17.
