It said the reason for the change in fortunes was due to an improvement in the valuation of its real estate portfolio. Its net asset value (NAV) – a key measure of a property developer’s success – jumped to 132p by the end of June, up 29 per cent on December’s 102p. Last month shareholders rejectd an attempt by KiFin, Minerva’s largest shareholder, to remove chairman Oliver Whitehead and chief executive Salmaan Hasan over a perceived lack of direction. KiFin, which is the investment vehicle of South African billionaire Natie Kirsh, took a 29.5 per cent stake in Minerva in November 2008 and attempted a takeover of the property firm that valued it at 50p a share. That was rejected by shareholders as undervaluing the company. Whitehead said despite the extreme challenges brought on by the credit crunch and the dispute with KiFin, the company had successfully achieved a number of important milestones. These included a comprehensive refinancing of the group’s loan facilities, the sale of its Wigmore Street building for £40.75m, pre-letting 45 per cent of the total office space at its St Botolph Building and achieving pre-sales of £230m at its Lancaster Gate apartment complex.

first_img Regions: Europe Nordics Finland Veikkaus to enhance responsibility measures in 2020 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 18th December 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Slot Machines Casino & games Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus has set out plans to bolster its responsible gambling measures in 2020, but warned that changes to its operating strategy could lead to a €50m (£42.5m/$56.7m) decline in earnings. Topics: Casino & games Strategy Slots AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus has set out plans to bolster its responsible gambling measures in 2020, but warned that changes to its operating strategy could lead to a €50m (£42.5m/$56.7m) decline in earnings. Approved by the Veikkaus board of directors, the operator’s strategy for the next 12 months will include reducing the number of slot machines it operates across Finland by an estimated 3,500, as announced earlier this month.Veikkaus will also push for compulsory identification in order for customers to play slot machines and other games, as well as amend its marketing strategy to focus more on promoting responsible gambling.“Responsible gaming measures have been planned and will continue to be numerous in the coming year,” Veikkaus’ director of responsibility Pekka Ilmivalta said. “We will be involved in the planning of this work, for example, with those dealing with gambling problems, as well as with addiction experts.”Other changes include the way Veikkaus reports its financial results, so that the profit it generates from gaming activities will be presented minus the winnings paid to players.Veikkaus said this will be consistent with the International Financial Reporting Standard, with a similar reporting model also being used by Sweden’s Svenska Spel and Danske Spil in Denmark.The new reporting policy will be implemented for the first time in Veikkaus’ 2019 Annual and Sustainability Report, which will be published in either February or March next year.Meanwhile, Veikkaus said the impact of its responsible gambling measure will play a role in determining performance-based bonuses for its management. For 2020, the evaluating the effectiveness of operations will have a weight of 40%, measured by operating expenses as a percentage of gross margin.Veikkaus said if the liability indicator’s threshold for gambling harm is exceeded, this 40% efficiency measure will be cut completely from the bonus. Other criteria for bonus payments include the number of customers with a weight of 35% and the development of staff experience at a weight of 25%.Such is the anticipated impact of these changes that Veikkaus expects earnings for 2020 to be around €50m lower than in 2019 – higher than the initial figure of €30m mooted earlier this month. Revenue is also set to fall by the same level in 2020.Veikkaus this month also named Saija Kivinen as chairperson of its new ethics advisory board, with five other members also set to serve on the board. Kivenen has served as legal counsel for telecommunications company Telia Finland since 2009, having previously been the company’s deputy legal counsel.Lassi Rajamäki, executive director of community organisation Sosped; Mikko Meriläinen, game researcher at the University of Tampere; Terhi-Anna Wilska, professor of sociology at the University of Jyväskylä and Jani Halme, creative director at marketing and communications company Toinen PHD will join the board as members.

first_imgThe following statement was issued by the National Network on Cuba.Assata ShakurOn May 3, the U.S. government falsely branded Assata Shakur … as a “terrorist,” placing her name as the first woman on the most-wanted terrorist list, with obvious alternative motives, but supposedly for the false charges 40 years ago. This act is doubly scurrilous as it implies that Cuba, a country that has suffered nearly 3,500 deaths from relentless U.S.-based terrorist attacks since its revolution for sovereignty in 1959, harbors “terrorists” because in the 1970s and 80s it gave Shakur and other Black freedom fighters refuge. The National Network on Cuba rejects this slanderous act and demands that it be reversed immediately.The National Lawyers Guild explained: “Assata Shakur is a former member of the Black Panther Party in New York City. That organization, which advocated community control and self-determination in the Black community, was one of the chief targets of the FBI’s infamous counterintelligence program known as ‘COINTELPRO.’“According to documents released in the 1970’s, ‘COINTELPRO’s stated goal was to ‘expose, misdirect, destroy and neutralize’ Black political organizations and their leadership. The illegal and unconstitutional program resulted in the police murder of scores of Black Freedom Fighters and others including BPP members, Fred Hampton and Mark Clark in Chicago, and the frame-ups and wrongful convictions of many others, such as Geronimo Pratt and Dhoruba Bin Wahad, both of whom spent two decades in prison before their frame-ups were exposed. Many former Panthers remain in prison today, such as Marshall Eddie Conway, Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin and Mumia Abu Jamal.”This convenient smokescreen comes at an historical moment when world opinion rejects the U.S. blockade of Cuba and demands that the Obama administration end the injustice, release all of the Cuban 5 and allow them to return to their families in Cuba. The Cuban 5 have been in prison for nearly 15 years for preventing terrorism against their homeland — Cuba.It is the United States that is harboring terrorist Luis Posada Carriles. Carriles was convicted of endangering the public welfare in a thwarted 2001 attempt to assassinate then Cuban President Fidel Castro who was speaking at a university in Panama.Carriles now shamelessly walks the streets of Miami, although there is an open extradition request from the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, where he is wanted to stand trial for the … mid-air bombing of a civilian aircraft. Carriles has boasted about his role in downing Cubana Flight 455 as it left Barbados in 1976, killing all 73 men, women and children aboard. It is a crime for which international treaties required extradition or trial in the host country. He has not been tried nor extradited. And Carriles is not the only terrorist living in the United States with the knowledge and protection of the U.S. government.The U.S. alternative motives for this upping the ante on Assata also place her on the Obama’s administration drone assassination program’s list; this is the list from which drone targets are chosen. In their offensive against the left in this hemisphere (Argentina, Cuba, Honduras, Ecuador, Uruguay, Venezuela, Haiti, and Nicaragua) the U.S. is using Assata as a precedent on their regime-change objectives for the Latin American and Caribbean left.We must organize to Free Assata [Shakur], the Cuban 5, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier and all political prisoners and prisoners of war in [U.S.] custody. Assata is our sister, mother, daughter, comrade and friend. The NNOC asks all our membership organizations for support in this struggle to remove Assata Shakur from the FBI terrorist list.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
