The deal, which tidies up Vodafone-Essar’s ownership structure, puts an end to the partnership between the British mobile giant and Indian conglomerate.Vodafone is now likely to pursue an IPO of part of the business.?It has not yet appointed bankers but City A.M. understands the listing would likely take place on the Mumbai stock exchange. Vodafone will own 75 per cent of the firm once the deal is completed in November, but will have to sell off 1.4 per cent of that stake to comply with Indian rules on foreign ownership. The remaining 24.6 per cent is already held by local companies. The $5bn cash payment is already included in Vodafone’s net debt, which stood at £30.5bn in September, and Moody’s said the firm’s rating was unchanged following news of the deal. “It was expected,” Execution analyst Will Draper said. “It tidies up the stake, gives Vodafone 100 per cent control and it’s one less thing to worry about in India.”Analysts said the deal also made sense for Essar, one of India’s largest business houses with holdings from energy to steel, which can extract a good price from a tough sector.“After taking control of the operations, Vodafone will become more aggressive in this market,” said Jagannadham Thunuguntla, head of research at SMC Global Securities.

On Thursday, Marston’s (LSE: MARS) shares fell by about 12.5% as Platinum, the US private equity firm, walked away from bidding for the pub group.The pub chain rejected offers of 88p a share and 95p a share in December, and a third offer of 105p at the end of January.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…Investing in pub groups as the vaccine rollout continuesThere’s no doubt pubs have been hit hard by lockdowns. All over the country, pubs are shut and have been for a long time. Yet over the last few months, the group’s share price has risen (although it’s well down over the three-year and five-year periods). Nonetheless, why are the shares rising?I think primarily it relates to the excitement around the unsolicited bid for the group. There’s now a growing expectation that the whole sector may go through a period of mergers and acquisitions as smaller rivals struggle and prices are depressed because of the pandemic. The original Marston’s bids did represent a modest premium to the share price at the time, so there could be other bids at a larger premium. This could potentially be good news for existing shareholders.There’s also an expectation that the vaccine rollout will mean pubs can reopen later this year, which is helping lift share prices. Competitor JD Wetherspoon has seen a smaller boost to its shares in recent months as well.There’s also Marston’s joint venture with Carlsberg which has given it cash, which is helpful at the moment. That too will likely have boosted investor sentiment and could help the group for years to come.On the other hand, there are worries around new variants of the vaccine, and ministers have been unable to say when pubs can reopen. Because of this, I think buying the shares as the global pandemic carries on is still fraught with risk.Would I buy Marston’s shares?It’s this risk that would keep me awake at night if I was a Marston’s shareholder. There’s the question of when it might be able to grow revenues again, on top of the issue of its net debt. At the time of its first-half results last year, that was well over £1bn.Despite falling recently, the share price is still well up on where it was just a few months ago. In that time, very little has changed, apart from the vaccine rollout success to date. For me, as a long-term investor, I’m not seeing much in the shares to suggest they are worth buying.So, although the share price has fallen this week, I won’t be adding Marston’s to my portfolio. The shares haven’t fallen enough, in my view, to offer me a sufficient margin of safety. I’d only invest in the shares if multiple new bids came through for the group, at a significant premium to the current share price. That may happen, but it also may not.

As COVID-19 cases rise, Dept. of Agriculture disputes DeSantis’s farmworker claim

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear The Sunshine State has been a notable hot spot for the coronavirus, particularly because so many senior citizens — one of the most vulnerable populations for COVID-19 complications — call Florida home. Now, statewide cases are on the rise. And while Governor Ron DeSantis has made it known that he feels Florida’s farmworker population is to blame, the Department of Agriculture says differently.It seems Florida might be taking a big step backward in terms of health — despite the Governor’s insistence that the state continues to move forward. On June 17, the state reported another 2,610 new confirmed coronavirus cases in a single day; there were 5,393 new cases tallied between June 16 and June 17 alone, with another 8,886 new cases confirmed between June 4 and June 11. In total, the state of Florida already has 82,719 known cases of COVID-19. And because the state continues to push through reopening stages, it’s likely those cases (and subsequent hospitalizations, perhaps) will continue to rise.More than 65 million people in the U.S. provide care for a chronically ill or aged family member — a scenario many Floridians know all too well, given the percentage of elderly residents. Until recently, the governor had put much of the blame for rising cases on high-risk facilities like nursing homes and prisons. But DeSantis has since doubled down on his claims that migrant farmworker communities are causing the spike — claims that have been refuted by the Department of Agriculture.According to Iowa State University, farmland makes up 80% of all U.S. farm assets. Since Florida agriculture represented 2.2 million full- and part-time jobs to the Gross State Product in 2014 and the state has over 9.5 million acres of farmland, it’s no wonder that the farming community would be substantial. But DeSantis argued that Florida’s farms — many of which, he said, require workers to live in close quarters — have been tied to the surge in positive cases.In a statement to the press, DeSantis explained:“You have very risky working conditions, particularly in these farm camps or with some of these construction workers, you know some of these guys, they go to work in a school bus, and they’re like sardines going across like Palm Beach County or some of these other places, and you know just all these opportunities to have transmission… There was a migrant worker from Miami that went up to this watermelon farm, was positive with COVID. They figured that out. So then they tested 100 workers at the watermelon farm and 90 of them tested positive. So that’s a 90% positivity.”But state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried responded to this claim by stating that the governor was acting “recklessly.” The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services stresses that the agriculture industry is not to blame for a surge, with their spokesperson delivering the following statement.“The Governor is mistaken regarding agriculture being a primary driver of COVID-19 in Florida. Commissioner Fried has been in close, regular communication with Florida’s leading agricultural associations throughout COVID-19. There is evidence of community spread of COVID-19 in areas where farms are located, but the vast majority of farmworkers left agricultural communities several weeks ago, as harvests have ended. As the Governor continues to prematurely reopen Florida, we’re seeing increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and positivity in recent weeks, including the state’s highest-ever single-day number of cases just yesterday. Many areas where cases are spiking are in non-agricultural counties, such as Broward, Duval, and Hillsborough, which have seen their highest positive case days in over a month. The Florida Department of Health has not communicated to our department any specific concerns about agriculture and COVID-19. Commissioner Fried’s 10-page report to the Governor’s re-opening task force included recommending that all farmworkers have adequate PPE, access to adequate healthcare and COVID-19 testing, and are able to practice social distancing on farms and food processing facilities. With her encouragement, many agricultural producers are following these recommendations. Commissioner Fried recommended that the Governor work with her to ensure that PPE, healthcare, and COVID-19 testing for farmworkers be provided, but has not received any response.”The spokesperson for FDACS, Franco Ripple, also hinted that the Governor himself might be to blame, citing the state’s reopening plan as the probable cause for the case spike: “As the governor continues to prematurely reopen Florida, we’re seeing increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and positivity in recent weeks, including the state’s highest-ever single-day number of cases just yesterday. Many areas where cases are spiking are in non-agricultural counties, such as Broward, Duval, and Hillsborough, which have seen their highest positive case days in over a month.”From all accounts, it seems as if DeSantis will continue to forge ahead with reopening and doesn’t seem keen on the idea of making CDC-recommended precautions, like mask-wearing, mandatory to stop the spread.Commissioner Fried added, “Governor DeSantis has lost control of Florida’s COVID-19 response. His policies are simply not working, and he’s recklessly reopening Florida despite the data screaming for caution.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Stewardship a critical element of in-memory fundraising, research shows

first_img Tagged with: in memoriam Research / statistics Melanie May | 30 June 2020 | News Embrace supporters’ need for personalisationThe more personal a tribute can be made, the better. Supporters will eagerly adopt personalisation when offered it. In this research, they were found to have personalised the same basic products (e.g. tree dedication) for use in different ways, reflecting their own needs and the character of their loved ones. Personalisation can be key to unlocking great product design and in-memory offers.Charity staff are the key to long and rewarding relationshipsCharity staff have a pivotal role in effective in-memory fundraising relationships – including clinical staff. Compassion was an essential requirement for both fundraising and clinical staff. Other qualities supporters felt to be important to good stewardship included being friendly and approachable; efficient and practical; appreciative and encouraging.Legacy Foresight carried out further research into the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on in-memory fundraising activity and income in May (In-memory through the pandemic). This revealed that almost a third of the 53 charities surveyed felt they had had more contact with in-memory donors since lockdown began. A third had initiated more phone contact and 45% more email contact than usual. Many had ‘checked in’ with supporters, referring them to bereavement resources and raising the option of tribute giving. Over two-thirds estimated that their total staff resource for in-memory had either stayed roughly the same or increased.Tribute funds are powerful fundraising toolsTribute funds underpin a fundraising journey and become a focal point for action, pulling everything together. Once set up, they became repositories for a myriad of in-memory donations from a wide range of different sources, encouraging and incentivising targets with their high visibility. Importantly, funds were happy places of remembrance, visited regularly. They had strong symbolic function in encouraging memories of a loved one, and a healing power.Again, Legacy Foresight’s In-memory through the pandemic research supported this, showing that tribute fund income had increased for over a third of charities surveyed, with 38% reporting an increase in the number of gifts.Kate Jenkinson, Head of In-Memory Consultancy, said:“At a time when our culture and communities have been shaken to the core, the deep-seated need to grieve for and honour those who have died – from Covid-19 or any other cause – is greater than ever.”“It’s so important to remember that the desire to honour a loved one who has died underlies so many types of charity support. Our research proves how important charities’ application of good stewardship is to their in-memory fundraising. We hope that this evidence will help make the case for greater, more thoughtful investment in in-memory fundraising throughout the sector.”A copy of In-Memory Briefing – Understanding In-Memory Stewardship can be requested via the Legacy Foresight website.  683 total views,  2 views today  684 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6center_img Stewardship a critical element of in-memory fundraising, research shows Good stewardship is a vital element of in-memory fundraising, research by Legacy Foresight and its consortium of 55 charities and hospices has found.Legacy Foresight and its consortium set out to gain a full understanding of what constitutes effective in-memory stewardship from the both charities’ and the donors’ perspective. The research used a combination of best practice charity case studies, charity surveys and in-depth supporter interviews.Key findings included:In-memory fundraising really matters to supportersAll of the supporters Legacy Foresight spoke to stressed how positive the experience of fundraising in memory of a loved one had felt, highlighting that in-memory giving is not a one-way street. Supporters said they appreciate the experience, the outlet, the reward it gives them and its role in helping them remember.Never forget a supporter’s ‘why’Possibly the most essential concern for supporters was that the charity should always keep sight of their ‘why’ – their loved one – which is their real reason for engaging. This was the one thing that united all supporters and the factor most likely to make them support again (or not), with offering supporters opportunities and outlets to tell stories about their loved one such as through tribute funds or at events a key element of good in-memory stewardship.

Research reveals mixed impact of pandemic on volunteering

first_imgDigital volunteering on the up 31% of the organisations included in the research experienced a decrease in the number of older volunteers (50+) actively engaged in their organisation, with this age group more likely to be impacted by the pandemic’s restrictions. And, alongside almost a quarter of all respondents reporting an increase in the number of people volunteering with them since March 2020, many organisations also reported a significant shift in the diversity and range of volunteers participating. With people volunteering because of furlough or having more time due to lockdowns, many reported new volunteers coming forward from a diverse range of age, gender, ethnicity and cultural backgrounds. The research also reveals increased positivity among charities, greater diversity among UK volunteers, and the rise of the digital volunteer. 30% charities reported a deteriorating financial position in the last month; 25% saw their financial position in the last month improve; and 44% reported a stable financial position in the last month. The gap here has narrowed as restrictions have begun to ease.37% voluntary organisations indicated that their range of services has decreased since March 2020; 38% reported an increase in their range of services since the beginning of the pandemic.64% of respondents expect Covid-19 to have a moderate or significant negative impact on delivering their objectives next year.6% of organisation surveyed reported that it was quite likely or very likely that their organisation would no longer be operating next year, a decrease from 8% last month. With Volunteers’ Week 2021 coming up on 1-7 June, new research shows that the pandemic has had a mixed impact for charities and volunteer numbers, with around a quarter of charities reporting an increase in numbers since March 2020, compared with 36% who saw a decline. “It is right that we all take the time to thank volunteers this Volunteers’ Week for the huge impact they have made in the past year. As we move out of lockdown this is a pivotal moment for all volunteer engaging organisations to build on the positives we have seen in the pandemic and plan strategically for the future of volunteering.” Outlook more positive among charities Melanie May | 24 May 2021 | News The data from the seventh monthly Covid-19 Voluntary Sector Impact Barometer, led by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), Nottingham Trent University and Sheffield Hallam University, also reveals that 38% of voluntary sector organisation reported a decline in the amount of time contributed by volunteers, with 29% reporting an increase since the beginning of the pandemic. The range of activities undertaken by volunteers had also reduced for 40% of charities. Advertisement The pandemic has also seen a shift in the diversity and range of volunteers participating. Tagged with: NCVO Research / statistics Volunteering However, in the past month, 20% of organisations said they expected an increase in volunteering, with 19% expecting a decrease – the first time more have expected an increase. Demand is also expected to increase with 66% of organisations in May compared to 59% in April expecting greater demand for their services in the short term. “Overall, we see a mixed picture for formal volunteering during the pandemic, with some organisations seeing many new volunteers, from all walks of life, many volunteering for the first time. Other organisations have struggled, either through volunteers having to shield, or having to suspend volunteering altogether. About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The research also shows a gradual but consistent decrease from 80% to 64% across the seven months of the survey in the number of organisations expecting the pandemic to negatively impact their ability to deliver their objectives. For the first time during the pandemic, more organisations (22%) expect their short-term financial position to improve than to deteriorate (19%).

This led to an increase in the number of volunteer roles being carried out remotely in 39% of organisations. As a result of the increased presence of digital, 26% of the respondents found it necessary to recruit volunteers with different skill sets to their normal volunteers. Diversity in volunteering Alex Farrow, head of networks and influencing at NCVO, said: “The increase in volunteer diversity during the pandemic is welcome and overdue, and the new opportunities and flexibility opened up by digital and micro volunteering are exciting for the sector.

first_imgPrint LIMERICK’S Georgian laneways are set to get a makeover after five projects initiated by local community leaders were selected by Limerick City and County Council for a new EU-sponsored programme.The +CityxChange (Positive City Exchange) project aims to create a new community to drive innovation and fight climate change by working towards a “positive energy city”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The overarching aim is to develop a series of demonstration projects on how to become a smart positive energy city for everyone.Following a series of workshops, five groups were selected to develop their projects based around different themes for Limerick’ s Georgian laneway seeing how they can be best utilised for the benefit of the city and those who live and work here.Mayor Michael Collins described Georgian Limerick as one of the city’s “great assets” and believes we need to develop and enhance its laneways in a sympathetic yet innovative way.“It is great to see such interest in revitalising our Georgian laneways. They can be used for so many things, as highlighted by the range of projects selected. It is so important that we all work together on projects like these and that they are community/ group driven. It gives people ownership,” Mayor Collins said.According to Dr Mihai Bilauca, leader of the +CityxChange project in Limerick City and County Council, the project is about finding innovative solutions to how we meet our energy consumption.“Limerick’s Georgian quarter with its network of laneways creates an ideal opportunity to re-imagine this extraordinary city asset into a collection of wonderful spaces. We want to capture the imagination of local community groups to start the transformation of Georgian laneways and use physical interventions such as new planting, improved streetscape and decoration supported by advanced technologies such as air quality and noise sensors,” Dr Bilauca explained.All groups including Limerick Mental Health Association, Hunt Museum, Limerick City Tidy Towns, Liveable Limerick and DeepSeek AI will work collaboratively with the support of Limerick City and County Council and use the services of Citizen Observatory and FabLab to realise their visions for the laneways.Visit www.limerick.ie/CityxChange for more details.
