McCombie There are a number of rumoured UK initial public offerings (IPOs) planned for 2020 and beyond. Darktrace, a cybersecurity startup, let its investors know last year that an IPO was its goal. Film buffs might like the idea of acquiring shares in Vue Cinemas and its 200 screen worldwide if it goes public. McLaren’s CEO has expressed a desire to take the company public.Being among the first shareholders in a hot, newly public company and potentially making a mint has an undeniable allure. Some IPOs have indeed made shareholders incredibly wealthy, but many others have left investors with nothing. On average, IPO investors could have probably done better.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…What Jay R. Ritter found in his study of 1,526 IPOs from 1975 to 1984 was that a strategy of investing at the end of the first day of trading and holding for three years was inferior to investing in matching firms that were already listed. The IPO investors ended up with 83p relative to each £1 invested in the comparable firms.Ritter identified over-optimism in the prospects of the debutant firms as the chief cause of the underperformance in IPO investing, particularly when there are many IPOs happening in the latest hot topic – think dot.com companies at the turn of the millennium, or ride-hailing apps now. Investors end up paying too high a price.Maybe it’s the fear of missing out on the next big thing that makes any price seem like the right price for IPO investors, or perhaps it’s because the price was never right to begin with.Making it publicThere are more rules and requirements to comply with as a public company compared to a private one, and more people to keep happy. So, why would a company go public?Access to public markets for capital to expand is a good reason. Introducing the company to new customers through the publicity of the IPO process and a listing on an exchange is another.New rules for IPOs were established in July 2018. Potential investors now get to see an FCA-approved prospectus before any research from banks that are involved in the actual IPO. Those banks also have to allow unconnected researchers the same level of access to information that their in-house research teams get.Investors need to be cynical when reviewing material published by the company and its backers. Naturally, the company will present as rosy a picture of its prospects as possible because it wants to sell for as much as possible. Well-informed independent research will provide balance, but investors still need to do their homework.Perhaps a private equity firm has squeezed every last drop out of the company’s margins and wants to cash in now. Only careful scrutiny of the financial performance might reveal darker motivations for going public. Keep in mind that companies going for IPOs are typically younger and have short track records.Are IPOs right for me?Investing in IPOs is riskier than investing in the market in general. An investor looking for growth would probably be better off investing in existing growth companies. For income investors, IPO investing will rarely make sense.Any amounts committed to IPOs should be small, and you should be able to lose your stake without it affecting your long-term investing goals. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more

Kahwa Njojo ,told ACNS: “The wars that we have had in the past grew worse because of the desire for revenge. That desire of vengeance negatively affects all sectors of the human life, society and even the church.“The presence of the Centre of Non Violence for Reconciliation and Peace proves to be indispensable in helping people promote peace instead of vengeance that brings other forms of violence,” he said. “Therefore, it is vital that Congolese people be trained in nonviolence to reduce violence in the world.”The center was established in 2012 to explore different methods and strategies that Jesus used to respond “effectively to different types of violence thereby restoring the culture of nonviolence and peace in our societies.”The center also realizes that in times of war and conflict, it is the women and children who suffer the most. Therefore, it also promotes women through education because “most of them are victims of violence due to their uneducated status.”“Women need to be trained so as to be well represented at all levels of society,” said Njojo. “We have registered many cases of violence and most of them are women and children who are unable to take care of themselves because of cultural stereotypes.”Since its establishment the center has been able to organize seminars and workshops to help people deal with violence and has also developed university level courses on peace and nonviolence to help students understand violence and how to address it using nonviolence in their respective regions.Despite the various positive works that the center is involved in, it still has major financial constraints to effectively implement its programs. “The problem with trying to build capacity of victims of violence is that you not only have to train them, but in the case of women, equip them with machines to enable them do profit-making activities such as tailoring and embroidery.“It for this reason that we are looking for partners to help us carry out these activities,” he said. “A project proposal is ready for anyone who are willing to make contributions.” Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Albany, NY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Press Release Service Africa, Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC Rector Collierville, TNlast_img read more

On the second day of his custody, he was subjected to extreme mental cruelty when he refused to comply with the premeditated script of the police. He was taken into a room laden with a tool to torture, where he was brutally and barbarically whipped with a chakki belt, forced to extend his hands, and then lashed by a thick injury-inflicting chakki belt multiple times on both the hands. Even the victim cried and writhed in pain while the police officer was lashing him, they did not stop and kept the agony and continued the assault in presence of other police officials.” In light of the Allegations, the Notice further states, “As per the allegations, a senior police officer was instructing for the physical torture and they were trying to coerce the victim to make false statements to incriminate himself and his organization. Shri Ghanshyam Singh was also paraded like a terrorist with his face covered in a black cloth while taken to court. It has been further alleged that as part of a witch-hunt against the Republic Media Network and in an attempt to fix investigations in a prejudged manner, all semblance of due process has been shunned and devious means of torture are being used. The complainant has requested an urgent intervention of the Commission in this matter, justice to the victim for violation of his human rights by police and to protect the news agencies whose members have been physically tortured in the custody by the State officials.” Issuing directions to the DGP, the notice further added, “The Commission notices that there are allegations of physical torture, false implication and mental harassment of the office bearer of an eminent Media House, which cannot be acceptable in a democratic country like India. The NHRC, thus, issued a Notice to the Director General of Police, Maharashtra, Mumbai to have the allegations of false implication and custodial torture be inquired by a senior IPS officer of his choice, other than the CID Branch or posted within the municipal area of Greater Mumbai, and submit a detailed report to the Commission within four weeks.NHRC issued a notice to Maharashtra’s Director General of Police pertaining to the arrest of @republic Media Network’s Assistant Vice President Ghanshyam Singh.#RepublicTV #ArnabGoswami #MumbaiPolice @MumbaiPolice pic.twitter.com/oq8eXe8B19— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) December 14, 2020 The Notice has also been issued to the Director General/ Inspector General of Prisons, Maharashtra, who is directed to send a copy of the initial health screening report of the victim Shri Ghanshyam Singh at the time of his admission in jail along with his entire medical treatment record during his stay in the custody within 4 weeks. The complainant has been asked required to inform the Commission, and also submit supporting documents, if any, if the victim has received any medical treatment, and also if the victim has informed the concerned Court regarding the alleged torture when he was produced before the Court. It may be noted that on 05th December, the City Civil and Sessions Court, Greater Bombay on Saturday (05th December), had granted bail to Republic Media Network’s Assistant Vice President Ghanshyam Singh He was arrested on 10th November in connection with TRP Scam Case, for alleged manipulation of ratings to show the news channel and its programmes as the most watched. Yesterday, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court Mumbai remanded Republic TV Chief Executive Officer Vikas Khanchandani for two days police custody in the fake TRP Scam case registered by Mumbai Police. About TRP Scam On October 8, the Mumbai Police Commissioner, Param Bir Singh, claimed to have busted a racket that involved private television channels manipulating their Television Rating Points, or TRP. “Investigation reveals that Republic TV, Fakth Marati and Box Cinema have indulged in such activities”, the Mumbai police said in a statement. According to the police, they had received a complaint in early October from Hansa Research, a company appointed by the Broadcast Audience Research Council or BARC, which installs “people meters” to track viewership. The company had said some former employees had shared details of the households being tracked and helped rig ratings. The Commissioner said that an FIR has been registered at Kandivali Police Station for offences of criminal breach of trust (Section 409), cheating (420) and criminal conspiracy (120B) under the Indian Penal Code. ARG Outlier Ltd and Goswami had approached the Supreme Court challenging the FIR. However, the apex court refused to entertain the petition and asked them to approach the Bombay High Court first. Earlier, in October 2020, The Mumbai City Civil and Sessions Court had granted bail to Shirish Pattanshetty, the owner of Fakt Marathi, one of the channels accused in the Television Rating Point (TRP) scam case registered by Mumbai police. Additional Sessions Judge PR Sitre granted bail to Pattanshetty on a PR bond of Rs.50,000. FIR was registered at Kandivali police station against the accused under sections 409, 420, 120 B read with Section 34 of Indian Penal Code. On October 8, Pattanshetty was arrested and his application for bail was initially rejected by the Esplanade Court.Click Here To Download NHRC NoticeRead NoticeSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

A Single Bench of Justice MS Ramachandra Rao sentenced them to undergo simple imprisonment for three months and to pay fine of Rs.2,000/-. They have also been directed to pay costs of Rs.10,000/- to each of the petitioners. The direction was made to the District Collector, Joint Collector and Administrator, (Rehabilitation and Resettlement) and Land Acquisition Officer – cum – Revenue Divisional Officer of the Rajanna Sircilla District in the State. In its order, the Court observed that the Respondent-officers had proceeded in defiance of Court’s order dated October 12, 2018, and in the process, seized some land which was subject matter of a writ petition, in March 2019. “Though the 1st respondent pleaded in para no.6 that attempts were not made to dispossess the petitioners from their agricultural lands or residential houses at any point of time, this is also a false plea as petitioners’ lands were dug away and submerged on account of inundation as can be seen from photographs filed by the petitioners,” the order stated. The bench was also informed that when the Petitioners’ objected to such wilful disobedience of a judicial order, they were threatened by the police employed by the Respondents. In its order, the Single Bench also rejected a contention raised by the District Collector that he was not holding office in October 2018 and thus, he had no responsibility to ensure obedience to the orders passed by the Court at the time. It held, “Respondent was admittedly the District Collector of the said District in October,2019 when the agricultural lands of petitioners were submerged (this is discussed below in detail) and it was his duty to prevent it’s violation since the Office of District Collector, Rajanna Sircilla District was a party in the Writ Petition (5th respondent in the WP) and to the said order dt.12.10.2018 and it binds him as well even if he joined later in the said Post.” The Bench further noted that the Respondents were unable to show any document showing that rehabilitation and resettlement awards under Section 31 of the Right to Fair Compensation, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 was paid to the Petitioners in lieu of acquisition of their agricultural lands. It said, “To a specific question put by me to the Special Government Pleader, Sri A. Sanjeev Kumar, attached to the Office of the Additional Advocate-General to show to me a single award under Section 31 of the Act r/w Schedule II of the Act towards Resettlement and Rehabilitation for acquisition of agricultural lands of the petitioners under the notifications mentioned by the petitioners above, he was not able to point out to a single document in any of the Annexures filed along with the counter-affidavits filed by the respondents to show that such awards were passed and such compensation was paid.” Reliance was placed on a Division Bench ruling in AP Agricultural Union & Anr. v. Spl. Chief Secretary Land & Ors., WP (PIL) No. 191/2016 where it was categorically held that a land owner who loses land or other immovable property to acquisition process by the State would fall within the definition of ‘affected family’ under Section 3(c) (i) of the Act. In parting, the Court directed that an adverse entry shall be recorded in the service records of Respondents as regards their wilful disobedience of the Court’s orders. It also suspended the sentence of imprisonment for six weeks. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more

No, the Maguires are not buying the mall

first_imgYour Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: Brian Crandall “We evaluated the opportunity as it was an active listing, but concluded that it was not ideal for several reasons. First, Namdar intends to sell off the mall in pieces. Maguire would want to acquire the property in its entirety. Second, core retail sections facing Route 13 are currently occupied with long-term leases. Maguire is open to future expansion opportunities in Ithaca and Lansing, and we recognize that we can be a valuable solution to revitalizing retail spaces sitting vacant as a result of the Amazon Effect,” he said.It appears there was an ounce of truth to the pound of rumors. Maguire did check out the mall, but Namdar Realty has been trying to sell it off in pieces, which is part of their strategy to lock in existing tenants – retailers are less likely close up shop when they own the spaces they occupy. At last report, the only tenant that has expressed interest in buying out their space is Target, which likely isn’t interested in a large chain of car dealerships setting up shop next door. Maguire’s statement suggests that Dick’s, Ulta Beauty and/or Best Buy are also in there for the long haul as renters if not potential buyers, given that they face Route 13 and occupy recently renovated spaces.Namdar Realty did not respond to comment regarding the Maguire project and long-term plans for the mall.As for the Maguires’ plans, it’s as the Voice reported in January – after Nissan comes a renovation of the Chevrolet and Cadillac dealership on Cinema Drive, and scouting out sites for a new Hyundai dealership and a new Subaru dealership. As those plans come forth, the Voice will keep you posted. Just don’t expect them to be at the mall. center_img Tagged: Ithaca Mall, Maguire Family of dealerships, Phil Maguire, retail, shops at ithaca mall, village of Lansing LANSING, N.Y. — Everyone likes a juicy bit of gossip. Sometimes it’s true, and sometimes, it’s not. It’s been a persistent rumor the past several weeks that the Shops at Ithaca Mall is being bought by the Maguire Family of Dealerships.As it turns out, that’s not happening.At a glance, it would seem plausible. The former Penn-Can Mall in suburban Syracuse had been bought and turned into a massive auto mall in the 2000s.Image Property of Namdar Realty.Certainly, the mall could use the investment as well – plagued with high vacancy and diminishing long-term prospects, the tax assessment for the Shops at Ithaca Mall decreased this year from $31 million to $19.35 million. It’s a good thing that the Village of Lansing has seen several other developments recently open or in the pipeline to supplement the loss in property taxes. One of the projects being reviewed right now is the new Maguire Nissan planned for Uptown Road.With the Maguires in expansion mode and the mall in need of some big tenants, it seemed like a good match – put those acres of parking and loop roads to use for a cluster of car dealerships. However, that’s not in Phil Maguire’s plans.“The Maguire Family of Dealerships has not made an offer, nor are we planning to make an offer to acquire the Shoppes at Ithaca Mall,” stated company president Phil Maguire.
