first_img Share whatsapp Flybe listing to take off in December Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 30 November 2010 8:17 pm Tags: NULLcenter_img KCS-content whatsapp REGIONAL airline Flybe yesterday announced plans to list in London in December in a bid to raise £60m.The initial public offering (IPO) would value the budget carrier, Europe’s largest regional airline, at about £240m and marks another stride in its ambitious growth strategy. “We are delighted to bring Flybe to the market. The company has come a long way in a short time,” said Flybe’s chairman and chief executive Jim French. The company said the flotation proceeds would provide capital both to grow its fleet of aircraft and to strengthen its cash position, to give it greater “strategic flexibility to pursue additional growth opportunities,” it said. These could include strategic arrangements with European airlines but also acquisitions. The news ends weeks of speculation, with reports suggesting 25 per cent of the business could be floated. Exeter-based Flybe has chased growth opportunities in recent years, buying British Airways’ regional UK business, BA Connect, in 2007 in a deal that doubled the company’s size.In July, it announced that it had ordered and secured options on up to 140 new aircraft with manufacturer Embraer for up to $5bn (£3.2bn). It has indicated its wish to list several times since 2005 but delayed plans due to the acquisition and then difficult market conditions.It is one of just a few European airlines to report profits throughout the recession, with turnover of £570.5m and £5.7m profit before tax in the year to March 2010. It now services 215 short-haul and niche routes.FAST FACTS | FLYBE65 per cent owned by Rosedale Aviation Holdings; family trust for Jack Walker.16 per cent employee-owned.BA retains a 15 per cent stake and will buy enough new shares to maintain that stake.BANK OF AMERICA MERRILL LYNCHJUSTIN ANSTEE FLYBE has hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch as sole sponsor, global coordinator and bookrunner on the offer, with Investec and Execution Noble as managers.Justin Anstee (pictured), head of EMEA transport, business services and infrastructure investment banking at BoA Merrill Lynch, is lead adviser.

Jonathan Joseph: Five of the world’s best steppers

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight In a collision sport, those players who can evade opposition defenders with guile, deception and footwork that would put John Travolta to shame are few and far between. RW spoke to England’s hot-stepper in residence, Jonathan Joseph, who named his best steppers in the game, past and present…Jason Robinson Caps 51 Tries 28 A rugby league legend with Wigan before switching codes, in six years Jason Robinson appeared in two World Cup finals, was a scorer in a Lions Test Series and lies fourth on England’s all-time top try-scorer list.Billy Whizz: Jason Robinson gives the Springboks the runaround“Back in the day Jase had some blistering footwork. He was very explosive, which meant he could virtually bounce round players. He was very instinctive, and sometimes I don’t know if even he knew where he was heading, but he was a proven match-winner.”Semesa Rokoduguni Caps: 1 Tries 0One of the best finishers in the Aviva Premiership, Semesa Rokoduguni has 29 tries in 64 appearances for Bath and is currently touring with the England Saxons, where he scored a superb individual try last weekend.Touchdown: Semesa Rokoduguni is a scorer of spectacular tries“My Bath buddy, Roko, has great feet. He can bounce you, step you, run round you, or just run through you – he’s very powerful. He’s rapid too, and can step off both feet and sit defenders down. I’m glad I play with him because he’s extremely difficult to defend against.”Quade Coooper Caps: 58 Tries: 8Currently in Toulon, but rumoured to be heading back to the Queensland Reds, Quade Cooper’s offensive gifts have never been in doubt but currently finds himself out of the Test reckoning and in recent months failed to make the Olympic Sevens squad. Jonathan Joseph was speaking ahead of the  Laureus King Power Polo Cup and features in the current issue. For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click herecenter_img Crowd pleaser: Quade Cooper is a gifted playmaker for the Wallabies“There’s no doubt Quade Cooper can step. He’s all about the flair. If the old goosestep works he has defenders falling on their backsides. His flicks, twists and turns are perfect for the You Tube generation. Ridiculously gifted.”Nehe Milner-Skudder (New Zealand) Caps: 8 Tries: 8The talented World Cup-winning wing from Taihape made his debut in 2015, and was scoring at the rate of a try a game. Nehe Milner-Skudder been cut down by injury for this Super Rugby season.Runaway success: Nehe Milner-Skudder pulls away from the Wallaby defenders“Nehe burst onto the scene last year before the World Cup and he has a sensational right-foot step. He sets the defender, and disguises his step really well – there’s not much of a build up to it and then he changes pace so effortlessly. He’s brilliant to watch.”Shane Williams Caps: 85 Tries: 58A Welsh legend, he is fourth on the all-time international try-scoring list. A once-in-a-generation player, Williams played in three Lions tours and was a nominee for World Player of the Year in 2008.Dancing feet; Shane WIlliams could step his way out of a phone box“Shane retired just as I started to come through but he had real pace and an electric sidestep. I’m told he was a former gymnast, which meant he was extremely springy which helped when he was in one-on-one situations. He had a low centre of gravity, was hard to get hold of and his try record, shows he was a superb finisher.” Everybody loves a player who can step round opponents in the blink of an eye and Jonathan Joseph, owner of some sharp footwork himself, names a few masters of the artlast_img read more

The retaining walls are treated in a monolithic natural plaster rising out of the landscape. Timber decking and flooring brings warmth to the material palette. The landscaping is purposefully raw, with little planting.

Sathya Santosh was hearing a suit filed by the plaintiff, Santosh under Order VII, Rule 1 CPC for directing the defendants (Woman and her mother) to jointly and severally to pay him, a sum of Rs.30, 00,000/­ as damages and for cost.Speaking to Live Law, Petitioner Santhosh’s lawyer A Sirajudeen said that the Judgment Dated Thursday (23rd January 2020) was pronounced in the open court on Saturday (1st February 2020), but was released online only last week i.e., more than 9 months after the same was delivered. However, he is yet to get the certified copy of the Judgment.Background of the CaseAfter he was acquitted in the case, as the DNA test proved that he was not the father of the child, whom the alleged victim-woman delivered, Santhosh filed a compensation suit against her while contending that she had falsely accused him of raping and impregnating her.In the suit filed against the woman and her mother, it was prayed by the Petitioner Santhosh that the false rape charge had ruined his career and life.Speaking to Live Law, Santhosh’s lawyer A Sirajudeen said that Santhosh and the woman’s family were neighbours and since they belonged to the same community, it was agreed between the families that Santhosh would marry the woman.Later on, following a property dispute, the relationship between both the families became strained and the plaintiff and his family members left the house and shifted to Mogapair West and the plaintiff joined B.Tech (IT) in SRR Engineering College, Padur, OMR, Chennai.However, in 2009, the woman’s mother came to his house and claimed that he had impregnated her daughter and demanded that the families arrange their marriage immediately but Santhosh and his family refused to marry her and said that he was not the one who impregnated her.Thereafter, a report was lodged with the false information against the plaintiff Santhosh and the police registered an FIR in Cr.No.874/2009 against Santhosh for an offence punishable under section 417, 376 IPC.In connection with the said FIR, he was arrested in November 2009 and he remained in custody for 95 days and came out only in February 2010, by then the woman had delivered a baby girl.The Case went for trial, and the court directed the taking of blood samples with precaution and the result of the DNA test reported that the plaintiff was not the father of the child and the said report was marked as defence document in the trial court and on 10.02.2016 the Mahila Court, Chennai acquitted the plaintiff of the charges.Court’s OrderConsidering the report and evidence placed through material evidence by the plaintiff, the Court formed a view that the 1st (Woman) and 2nd defendant (Woman’s Mother) are responsible for the malicious complaint levelled against the plaintiff Santhosh.The Court further observed that the plaintiff could prove that the 1st and 2nd defendant had made a false complaint and based upon which the plaintiff was prosecuted.The Court also noted that the false complaint of the 1st and 2nd defendant damaged the reputation of the plaintiff and the plaintiff could not get a badge for driving a commercial vehicle in view of the pendency of the false case and had suffered loss and had spent huge money on legal fees apart from confinement in prison for 95 days and faced trial in respect of the criminal a case for nearly 7 years.Noting the circumstances, the Court said,”This Court is of the considered view that the plaintiff has proved the damage to his reputation and the pecuniary loss through material evidence both oral and documentary and is entitled to damages.”The Court ordered,”The defendants 1 and 2 are liable to pay the damages to the plaintiff and the suit is decreed partly directing the defendants 1 and 2 to jointly and severally to pay the plaintiff the damages of Rs.15 lakhs to the plaintiff.”In the result, the suit was decreed partly and the defendants 1 and 2 were directed jointly and severally to pay the damages of a sum of Rs.15 lakhs to the plaintiff with costs.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

OnTheMarket to end mutual status and float on AIM

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » OnTheMarket to end mutual status and float on AIM previous nextMarketingOnTheMarket to end mutual status and float on AIMPortal announces bid to raise £50m from the City and asks agent members to become shareholders.Nigel Lewis4th August 2017035,983 Views The parent company of OnTheMarket.com, Agents’ Mutual, is to raise £50m by floating on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange 30 months after the mutually-owned property portal launched.The flotation will value OnTheMarket at between £200 million and £250 million, a sixth the size of nearest rival Zoopla.Much of the money raised from the City will be spent on a huge TV, radio, print and digital advertising campaign to raise awareness among consumers and, no doubt, stop agents jumping ship back to Zoopla.OnTheMarket’s flotation will also require existing agents who list on the site to convert their membership into ordinary shares in the new company, and commit to a further five year agreement to list their properties on OnTheMarket.com.“This is the beginning of a very exicting new chapter in our development,” says Agents Mutual Chief Executive Ian Springett (pictured, left).“For consumer and agents alike we are committed to creating a genuine agent-controlled alternative challenger business and brand to the two leading incumbent portals.”A minority stake will be offered to investors as part of the Initial Public Offering (IPO) of new equity which will be used to give OnTheMarket the sort of marketing muscle and backing that its rival Zoopla and Rightmove enjoy.OnTheMarket.com, which is the third largest property portal in the UK by visitor numbers, faces several obstacles in its bid to launch on AIM, during which it is being supported by brokerage Zeus Capital.Member voteThe key one is Agents’ Mutual must gain the support of its 2,700 member agents, many of whom may resist the allure of joining the City bandwagon and the transparency and regulatory burdens this brings.But should Ian Springett be able to convince members a flotation is a good idea, the money will also be spent on expanding the portal’s estate agent account management and sales teams and improving its technology offering.Agents’ Mutual will have to reorganised to become a public limited company and instead of being individual members will instead receive shares, the number of which will depend on how long they have listed with the portal, and the level of fees paid and investment made. A vote on this is expected on 6th September.Onthemarket floating onthemarket flotation Ian Springett onthemarket aim listing OnTheMarket.com OnTheMarket OTM agents mutual flotation agents mutual stock market agents mutuatl aim Agents’ Mutual August 4, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
