The publisher said it had been hurt by a fall in advertising revenue but added that it had returned to growth in the second half of the year and expected the recovery to continue into next year. For the full-year, the company reported adjusted pre-tax profit of £4m, compared with £4.4m the year before. Revenue for the year also fell 10 per cent to £59.9m. However, in the fourth quarter revenue rose 14 per cent, the company said. Centaur’s revenue comes from advertising (£29.4m), events (£17.3m) and paid-for content (£12.5m) with £0.7m coming from other sources.The publisher also admitted it had axed one in five staff in the last two years admitting the last eighteen months had been “particularly difficult.” Geoff Wilmot, chief executive of Centaur said: “I am pleased to report that Centaur revenues returned to growth in the second half and that recovery is continuing into the new financial year.”Centaur’s share price closed one per cent lower on the news to 47.5p.

Fresh austerity drive for Ireland

first_img Show Comments ▼ Fresh austerity drive for Ireland Ireland will seek savings well above an initial target of €3bn (£2.6bn) in its 2011 budget, finance minister Brian Lenihan said yesterday. Ireland is under pressure to demonstrate it can shrink the worst budget deficit in the EU to allay concerns the former “Celtic Tiger” economy may need external assistance to shore up its finances. It is understood Lenihan will seek up to €4.5bn in adjustments in the 2011 budget, his fourth austerity plan in two years. The task facing the government, the most unpopular administration in modern Irish history, has been compounded by a less rosy global outlook which will likely trip up a return to growth in the heavily trade-dependent Irish economy this year. whatsapp More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com whatsapp Sharecenter_img KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Sunday 10 October 2010 11:52 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The crisis cost BP $40bn and saw its share price nearly halve. Negative publicity became front-page news when President Obama declared: “We will make BP pay for the damage their company has caused.”BP BRAND RECOVERINGThe good news for BP is that its brand has now recovered to some extent in the UK, and that some of its competitors have struggled to promote their own brands during the interim period.The graph shows that BP’s BrandIndex “Index” score – which combines six measures of brand health including value, reputation and likelihood to recommend – hit a low of -13.4 points on 15 June. Despite the large dip, it had re-emerged back into positive territory by 27 September. Texaco enjoyed a slight lift during this period, while Exxon Mobil’s BrandIndex scores remained consistent around -5 points.SHELL IS BIGGEST WINNERThe winner from this period of turbulence for oil company brands is clearly Shell, which saw its BrandIndex scores closely pegged to BP’s for the first four months of 2010. Thereafter, Shell’s “Index” scores have risen to a high of +14. Shell’s scores demonstrate that one brand’s crisis may not necessarily adversely affect the health of other brands in the sector.NEW ROUND OF EUROSCEPTCISMThe Eurosceptic mood of the public is clear from the results of YouGov’s polling during the past few weeks. 70 per cent think Britain pays too much towards the EU; 63 per cent want the organisation of the EU to contract, and 80 per cent backed Cameron’s attempt to block the proposed sixper cent increase in the EU’s Budget. As the country braces itself for the economic impact of spending cuts, the last thing the Coalition government needs is a fight over Europe.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive and co-founder of YouGov.

Public sector increasingly nervous about jobs

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ IN the run up to the Christmas season feelings of insecurity surrounding employment situations can become more acute. A monthly Household Economic Activity Tracker (HEAT) produced by YouGov SixthSense has found that a net percentage of employees were more fearful for their jobs in October (net -20 per cent) than they had been during September (net -17 per cent). This ties in with the general trend of increasing fears over job security since spring 2010 (see graph).Concern about job security differs between public and private sector employees. By subtracting the percentage of people who currently feel secure in their position from those fearing impending job loss, YouGov SixthSense calculated a net -31 per cent level of confidence in job security amongst public sector workers, while confidence amongst private sector employees stands at a net -14 per cent. The Comprehensive Spending Review has started to make public sector workers nervous.Widespread feelings of employment insecurity exist in spite of a perceived increase in the level of business activity in the UK: both private and public sectors recorded positive net increases in this regard (four per cent and 14 per cent respectively). Similarly, from September to October a net zero per cent level of income change was recorded.Despite this, those employed are still feeling the pinch as 67 per cent said price changes have negatively affected them, with only two per cent welcoming recent price fluctuations. YouGov SixthSense also recorded a nine per cent net increase this month in the need for additional borrowing in respect of Credit Cards, overdrafts and other unsecured loans.The consumer prognosis for next year is also grim. YouGov respondents overwhelmingly believe goods and services will cost more this time next year, with unemployed people registering the lowest level of confidence that prices will remain stable.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive and co-founder of YouGov Tags: NULL KCS-content Public sector increasingly nervous about jobs center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The annual party of Roland Rudd’s Finsbury PR made its triumphant return to the cosy environs of the museum in full style. Guests strolled past a violet-lit, upside-down aeroplane hanging from the ceiling to the central lobby, where a sizeable chunk of Rudd’s two dozen FTSE 100 clients had gathered for drinks and high jinks.Your Capitalist was there, watching as the axles of business – at least, its more champagne-fuelled side – were greased. Speculation that Finsbury would ruthlessly shed its New Labour credentials in favour of this coalition fad proved groundless, as we spotted only the regular Tory attendees.And, of course, the dark prince of New Labour himself – Peter Mandelson – was seen gliding across the floor. Smoothly, he sailed into a conversation with RBS honcho Stephen Hester. “How are you?” exclaimed the lord as if the two were old friends. “I’ve just come back from China.”His impeccable black tie drew queries – “off to the Italian ambassador’s”, he said airily. But what was the old hand doing in China? Apparently embracing his “John the Baptist” role, as he put it, but further specifics remained a mystery.“Does he still think he’s running RBS?” one chairman asked as the Lord peeled Hester off from the crowd. And Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King strolled the floor displaying his heart on his sleeve – or lapel – in the form of a huge badge bearing the supermarket’s logo (and kindly enlarged to fit the clumsy Olympic equivalent).As Centrica chairman Roger Carr deployed his charming smile to another guest and former Lloyds boss Sir Victor Blank made a fashionably late entrance, Nat Rothschild’s BMW pulled up at the Tate’s steps.

FTSE hits 31-month high on first close of 2011

first_img alison.lock whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp LONDON saw a storming start to 2011 as the FTSE moved above the 6,000 level in the year’s first trading session to close at a 31-month high.The FTSE 100 moved up 1.9 per cent or 113.93 points to close at 6,013.87, its highest level since June 2008, buoyed by rises on US and European exchanges on Monday when the LSE closed.Oil giant BP was the biggest riser, up 5.9 per cent to 492.9p, alongside strong gains from British Airways (up 4.92 per cent to 285.9p), Barclays (up 4.2 per cent to 272.8p) and RBS (up 4.12 per cent to 40.7p). “Helping the bullish side was newspaper speculation that BP had been a possible bid target in the past year for sector stable-mate Shell. Although some saw this as old news, it didn’t dampen the appetite for index heavyweight BP, pushing the share price out to seven-month highs,” said Yusuf Heusen, senior sales trader at IG Index. RBS was boosted by Exane BNP Paribas upgrading the stock to its ‘outperform’ rating after losing five per cent of its value over the Christmas period.Barclays and Lloyds also benefited as worries over euro zone sovereign debt faded further into the background.And Ocado led the risers in the FTSE 250, up 10.32 per cent to 196.7p amid expectations of a strong trading update from the online grocery delivery group next week. 
The main losers were stocks seen as defensive. Food producer AB Foods was down 1.4 per cent, while utility International Power slipped 1.5 per cent.UK stocks gave up some of their gains in the final hours of trading in anticipation of another subdued set of minutes from the US Federal Reserve’s last meeting, due for publication after London closed. In the US, the Fed remained sceptical about economic recovery and reiterated its support for further quantitative easing despite another strong set of manufacturing data.Wall Street slid on poor results from supermarket groups. Shares of Supervalu fell nearly six per cent after Morgan Stanley told investors to cut holdings in the stock, saying rising food costs would crimp margins. Safeway and Whole Foods Market also lost ground.Declines in oil and metals prices also dragged down US energy and materials shares. The Nasdaq provisionally closed down 10.3 points or 0.38 per cent at 2681; the S&P 500 closed provisionally down 1.69 points or 0.13 per cent at 1270; while the Dow Jones industrial average provisionally closed marginally higher, up 20.43 points or 0.18 per cent, at 11,691. Wednesday brings London further trading updates – and potential bad news – from retailers. “Tomorrow we can scrutinise a trading statement from Next and on Thursday from Burberry,” said David Buik, an analyst at inter-dealer brokers BGC Partners.Heusen added: “There is still potential for shocks in the short-term when the major retailers unveil their Christmas trading numbers – but for now investors have been heartened by the strong start made to 2011.” Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 4 January 2011 4:04 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Share FTSE hits 31-month high on first close of 2011 last_img read more
