Share CWC hit by Caribbean woes KCS-content whatsapp CABLE & Wireless Communications (CWC) said while there had been no major improvement in its key Caribbean market, it still expected to end its year broadly in line with forecasts.The group, which also trades in Panama, Macau and Monaco, said that while tourist numbers were beginning to recover in the Caribbean, many were on cheaper packages and did not spend freely. Operations were also disrupted by hurricanes, it said.CWC split from the former Cable & Wireless group last year. The remaining business, now called Cable & Wireless Worldwide, services corporate and government customers in markets in Britain, North America, Continental Europe, India and elsewhere. CWC said it had maintained market share above 50 per cent in Panama despite competition. It has also seen good demand for its pay-TV service and the new revenue streams meant it should post a stronger second half there than the first, it said.The firm also announced it has acquired a 51 per cent stake in Bahamas Telecommunications.

Regions: UK & Ireland The Irish government has confirmed that horse racing will be able to resume from 8 June, following the suspension of activities due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Irish horse racing set to return on 8 June Horse racing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Irish government has confirmed that horse racing will be able to resume from 8 June, following the suspension of activities due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Irish racing moved behind closed doors on 13 March, but the government then announced a full suspension of all sports events in the country later that same month.Horse Racing Ireland had initially hoped to recommence racing in mid-April, but this date was pushed back as the country dealt with the ongoing crisis.However, the government said it would permit racing to resume behind closed doors from next month, but with a number of measures in place, including strict limits on the racing personnel in attendance.“We are grateful to be one of the sectors permitted to go back to work and acknowledge the responsibility on everybody in racing to ensure the events are run in a safe way,” Horse Racing Ireland chief executive Brian Kavanagh said.“We know from our own experience in March when we safely ran ten meetings behind closed doors – and from what is happening in other countries like France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and America – that racing can be staged safely within the requirements of social distancing.”Among the other measures that will be in place are a requirement for all staff in attendance to be subject to health screening in advance and thermal temperature screening on arrival. Anyone with an elevated temperature will not be permitted to attend.Horse Racing Ireland will also insist on the mandatory wearing of face coverings for on-track personnel such as jockeys, stalls handlers, medical professionals and security staff. People over the age of 70 will not be allowed to attend races for the time being.Social distancing will be enforced by a dedicated coronavirus protocol officer at each fixture, while all surfaces will be regularly disinfected before racing and throughout the race day, and all indoor areas well ventilated.In addition, Horse Racing Ireland will host a new series of educational webinars to assist further understanding of the changes people will encounter when returning to work on the racecourse.“The decision to allow racing to resume behind closed doors will be welcomed within the industry,” Kavanagh said. “For flat racing in particular, but also for a significant portion of the National Hunt population, there is a seasonal and cyclical nature to the industry and these are key months in the trade and export of horses with proven form on the race track, as well as a vital period in the sales season.“These will not be race meetings as you might traditionally imagine them, rather stripped back events which will determine the best horses in various categories, a vital factor for the breeding industry. Attendance will be kept to an absolute minimum and Covid-19 protocols will be strictly enforced.”Horse Racing Ireland will announce further details about the dates and times of races in the coming days.Ireland is the latest country to permit racing to return behind closed doors amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Last week, the British Horseracing Authority said it plans to recommence racing from 1 June, while racing in New Zealand is also set to return later this month.Racing also restarted in Germany on 7 May and in France on 11 May, while in Australia, Japan and Hong Kong, the industry continued operating behind closed doors.

Tags: BetIndex Legal & compliance 6th May 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter However, the dividend structure that made the Football Index platform popular is currently unsustainable – the operator would be liable to pay out £550,000 per month, which would put its account in default by 22 April. An application for the determination of the appropriate distribution of the money held in the Football Index Player Protection Trust Account has been made, in addition to an identification of customers who would be entitled to those funds. The account holds £4.5m currently; BetIndex’s liability to the customer stands at £3.2m, leaving them with a £1.3m surplus. It will be distributed among customers with funds in their accounts, and those whose bets are still active. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Court to rule on £4.5m Football Index repayment Topics: Legal & compliance Legal BetIndex entered into administration in March after its license was suspended by the GB Gambling Commission, leaving all Football Index customers out of pocket. The date chosen could be any date from the suspension of the platform to the date when the bets ultimately expire, but the administrators recommended 26 March, when the administration proceedings began. This would leave a surplus of £1.0m in the account, suggesting dividends worth around £250,000 would be paid out. Administrators for BetIndex, operator of collapsed operator Football Index, have taken the first steps in paying back money lost by customers on the platform, but must weigh claims of players who lost sums from their accounts against those owed dividends. A hearing has been set for 10 May 2021 at 11:30am at the Insolvency List within the Business and Property Courts of England and Wales, whereby it will be determined exactly how BetIndex will be allowed to distribute the funds. While the operator had assured that player funds would be protected above other creditors, its terms and conditions said that funds invested in players through bets on the platform have no such protection, as these were considered sums at risk. As a result, these funds were considered to be lost. However, the administrators determined that as the wagers placed are still active, players may still be owed some dividends for the sums invested into players. Regions: Europe UK & Ireland Football Index sponsorship deals with football teams Queens Park Rangers and Nottingham Forest were subsequently ended, and the government has since announced plans to open an inquiry into the platform’s collapse. As a result, the date at which dividends are to be calculated from is crucial, as an earlier date could benefit some customers with most money held in their accounts, while others would be left short changed. A later date would only make some customers – those with large portfolios – entitled to even more money, once again leaving others out of pocket.

When it comes to finding the best shares to buy, I like this company yielding 3.5% Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Enter Your Email Address Investment banking company Numis Corporation (LSE: NUM) has been a big Covid winner. And at 338p, the shares have risen by just over 100% since the spring plunge. But even now, I reckon it’s a share I might buy.Today’s full-year results report covering the period to 30 September 2020 revealed the figures driving the stock’s progress. Revenue rose by almost 39% compared to the prior year. And that led to a 240% increase in earnings per share. On top of that, the cash performance was good with the net cash balance increasing by nearly 49% to just over £125m.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…Why I think Numis is a share to buy nowIt’s expensive for companies to list on the stock market as a plc. And it’s expensive every time a company wants to raise extra capital by, for example, issuing new shares. But Numis benefits from corporate market activity. It’s a recipient rather than a payer of the often eye-watering fees common in the world of finance and the stock markets.But big fees are attractive if I own shares in an investment banker such as Numis. Indeed, to access the markets, other companies must deal with Numis or one of its competitors. Meanwhile, a quick glance at the strength of the financial position at Numis shows how lucrative the firm’s position can be.Numis said in the report that capital markets deal volumes increased “significantly” during the second half. Many of the firm’s corporate clients accessed the market for funding because of the disruption caused by the pandemic. Almost £102m of the company’s nearly £155m revenue came from investment banking activities in the period. And around £77m of that was taken via capital market fees.However, the directors reckon “material” declines in M&A and IPO volumes offset the increased activity. And that happened because of companies pausing strategic plans while firefighting to keep their balance sheets healthy through the Covid crisis. But towards the end of the year, companies began to access the markets again “in support of revised growth strategies.” Either way, I reckon Numis wins.A positive outlookLooking ahead, revenue continued in the first two months of the current trading year “in line with the strong second-half performance of FY20”. The directors said investors reacted to the latest vaccine developments “providing a favourable environment for our Equities business”. So, in the other arm of the Numis business, execution commissions and trading gains have been “strong”. On top of that, the company is seeing the beginning of a recovery in M&A activity. And the IPO pipeline is “stronger than it has been for some time”.Numis has held the shareholder dividend flat since 2016 and didn’t miss a payment because of the pandemic. With the share price near 338p, the dividend yield is just over 3.5%. And I’m tempted to buy and hold some of the shares as we move forward into what could be a buoyant period ahead for economies, companies and the stock market. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.
