News / Kuehne + Nagel off to ‘a good start’ in 2014, with Q1 results showing growth

first_imgBy Alex Lennane 14/04/2014 Airfreight held its own, with volumes up 1.4%, with rises recorded in Europe and North America, but Asia, the Middle East and Africa saw tonnage decline. K+N said that while the market grew 2-3%, it expected to grow faster in the rest of the year, at 1.5 times the market.The forwarder closed 40 locations in its contract logistics unit to focus on profitability, and net turnover improved by 1.7%, while EBIT rose 13.8%.Its overland unit also had a strict focus on profit through its “Road 2 Profit” strategy, which led to cost reductions. The unit saw currency adjusted net turnover improve by 6.9%, and it expected this unit to keep pace with market growth, while contract logistics is forecasted to grow at double the market rate of 2-3%.CEO Detlef Trefzger said in a statement: “In a slightly recovered market environment all our business units performed well. The cost measures introduced one year ago and active margin management have been effective.“Our strategy remains unchanged: we will continue to focus on profitable growth.”Davy Research said: “Overall, these are encouraging results, particularly in light of the negative foreign currency impact.” Kuehne + Nagel has announced a “good start to the year”, with first-quarter EBIT rising 12% to Sfr190m (US$217m), but saw net turnover fall 1.3% and gross profit fall 0.3%.Davy Research commented: “While slightly behind our net income target of Sfr161m, these results are in line with market estimates (net income Sfr150m)…The earnings increases were due to a focus on profitable growth, with the overland business ending the first quarter clearly positive. Air freight and contract logistics also recorded improved results.“There was a slight decrease in net turnover to Sfr4.12m (from Sfr4.18m) and gross profit Sfr1.53m (from Sfr1.53m), resulting from planned adjustments in warehousing capacities, rate deterioration and margin pressure in sea and air freight, as well as the negative currency impact.”On the ocean, the leading freight forwarder saw volumes grow 7% year on year, while the industry average was 3-4%, but it noted that rate volatility continued to be a challenge. Volumes in Europe to North America and Asia increased substantially, but Latin America was weaker.last_img read more

Moody’s downgrades Manitoba’s credit ratings

first_img Keywords Credit ratings,  Manitoba Manitoba has followed Ontario by becoming the second Canadian province to have its credit rating downgraded this week amid concerns about its debt. New York-based Moody’s Investors Service Inc. downgraded the Manitoba’s senior unsecured ratings to Aa2 from Aa1, citing the province’s deteriorating debt and fiscal situations. Specifically, the credit-rating agency notes that the provincial government extended its planned return to balanced budgets by another two years in its 2015 budget. Moody’s also reports that the province’s debt burden has increased to an expected 143% of revenue at the end of fiscal 2014-15 from 116.7% at the end of fiscal 2010-11. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter “The downgrade to Aa2 reflects the deterioration in Manitoba’s financial metrics leading to an increased debt burden and our expectation that the province will face significant challenges in achieving fiscal balance by 2018-19,” says Kathrin Heitmann, Moody’s lead analyst for Manitoba, in a statement. The stabilization of Manitoba’s debt burden will depend on political willingness to rein in spending, Moody’s says, adding that it views the province’s current spending plans as “challenging.” The outlook on the Manitoba’s credit rating is stable and Moody’s says it expects the province to outperform Canadian economic growth over the next couple of years, with forecasted real gross domestic product growth of 2.5% in 2015 and 2.3% in 2016.center_img Sovereign defaults hit record level in 2020: Fitch James Langton Climate tide turns against oil companies: Moody’s High debt levels threaten banks’ strong results: Fitchlast_img read more

FCA proposes IPO information reforms

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Currently, independent analysts often don’t have access to the information they need to produce research on IPOs, the regulator notes. Instead, research from analysts that are connected to a company’s underwriters is the “dominant source of information available to investors” during the process, the FCA says in a statement. “This is of particular concern given the conflicts of interest that arise during the production of connected research, including analysts coming under pressure to produce favourable research on an offering if their bank is to secure a place on the book-running syndicate,” the FCA statement adds. As a result, the U.K. regulator proposes measures to ensure that providers of independent research have access to an issuer’s management, before any “connected” research is released. It also provides new guidance regarding analysts’ interactions with management and their corporate finance advisers. Ultimately, the FCA says that it wants to see an IPO process that allows for: the production of independent research coverage; enhanced conduct standards during the production and distribution of connected research; and a more central role for the prospectus. “A well-functioning IPO market with high standards of conduct is an essential part of the UK’s capital markets. The IPO process has considerable strengths, but the proposals we have outlined in today’s consultation paper are designed to improve the range, and timeliness of higher quality information that is available to investors during the process,” says Christopher Woolard, executive director of strategy and competition at the FCA, in a statement. This consultation is part of a broader effort to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of primary securities markets. IOSCO guidance addresses conflicts of interest in equity capital raising The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) on Wednesday published a consultation paper proposing measures to reform the availability of information during the U.K. equity initial public offering (IPO) process. The measures are intended enhance the availability of independent research and enhancing the information that investors receive.

Residents of St. Elizabeth Benefit from Malaria Outreach Programme

Righteous Rage Institute working toward social justice, healing

first_img The Righteous Rage Institute (RRI), for healing, social justice, and community organizing, envisions building abolitionist institutions to dismantle colonized systems of racial oppression through a healing justice approach that addresses generational trauma and violence from racial oppression. RRI works with community and educational partners like IRISE at the University of Denver, Journey for Justice Alliance, and CU Boulder’s Leadership and Community Engagements Majors’ first capstone class. When asked to describe RRI’s approach, Allison Brown, Director of Consulting and Training, said, “What we’re really talking about is healing from a long history of having a caste system in the U.S created on race that still persists today. It is healing from slavery, from Jim Crow era laws, from the war on drugs, from redlining and everything that has created the racial inequity entrapment today.”Creating a space for others to heal from the inside out, RRI creates pathways for grassroots organizers and social justice leaders to enhance their skills allowing them to propel social justice movements and Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) forward and rectify inequities of the past. “We are ever evolving,” said Chief Strategist Officer Cassandra Johnson. “We turn moments into movements, when it comes to racial injustice and you go out and are protesting that’s an action, but it’s how we generate and create the momentum that matters in order to make change” By turning moments into movements, RRI aims to support and sustain historically marginalized communities on all levels with their healing justice approach.RRI’s work started by being centered around three pillars: educate, organize and agitate. By educating and listening to families, organizing in the community and agitating the system, RRI evolved into building a space for healing.“The concept of having our own institute where we could do things on our own, whether it be philanthropy driven or supporting grassroot BIPOC organizations and leaders is valuable,” said Johnson on creating a balance in the organization. Being able to grow allowed RRI to support the racial justice movement and bring in more people in a productive way, allowing others to come in with the right mindset and rest from the demanding act of organizing. As a movement, being in the right mindspace, having an internal peacefulness, and being able to engage and collaborate effectively with everyone involved became just as important as what the next campaign would be. “It’s not about what we’re doing, but how we’re doing it,” said Brown. RRI’s biggest goal looking to the future lies in the transformation of institutes and systems. The work of healing is what RRI strives to do by working with school districts, nonprofits, government agencies and corporations to go through the process of being able to have conversations and hold space for conversations on race and racism with the acknowledgment that there is a history of racism in those institutions in order to begin the work of transforming.“We don’t believe in reform,” said Brown. “you can’t reform something that from the very beginning was designed to be oppressive.”Righteous Rage aims to build new systems that will render older ones obsolete.As RRI continues to partner with their community to work toward this goal, their partnership with the Leadership and Community Engagement major has proved beneficial for both organization and the students.“It has been a tremendous amount of support, especially in a high needs area when it relates to research and evaluation,” said Johnson.The students assist with operations  working to collect and analyze data as RRI does not have the capacity and full time staff to cover all of the areas needed. Having this information is important to the RRI’s stability and growth by allowing their team to have the numbers to speak with funders on impact and outcomes.“CU students are working with us to address that gap in the system and fill in a capacity gap,” said Brown. “It’s wildly important because they’ve been focused on evaluation.”“It has been very professional,” said Johnson. The evaluation done by the students aid RRI in getting funding from establishments that require data and full evaluations to be done in exchange for funds. “I was given the opportunity to recognize and understand that the way I have always been a student isn’t the only right way of doing things. I got to step back and learn from those around me, rather than operating on my assumptions,” said Jessie Steinbaum, a University of Colorado Senior. “I learned that I need to work on unlearning some of my white-centered tendencies and behaviors, and I am slowly getting there!”“It’s opened my eyes to how complex leadership is,” said Sara Swain, a University of Colorado Senior. RRI offers programming out to the community such as their White Ally to Abolitionist course allowing community members to bring Righteous Rage to their workplace, school communities, and create partnerships. You can support the Righteous Rage Institute by subscribing to their newsletter “The Cure”, tuning into a podcast, investing in the Lauren R. Watson legacy fund, attending a class, or donating.

Port Management System to be developed

first_imgPort Management System to be developed InformationMarch 15, 2012 By Alphea Saunders, JIS Senior Reporter RelatedPort Management System to be developed RelatedPort Management System to be developed FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Cabinet has given approval for the establishment of a port community system, which will connect port personnel and allow them access to logistical information on port-related freight distribution. “It will also facilitate the exchange of vital information and improve the efficiency in maritime trade and the transportation cycle,” said Minister with responsibility for Information, Hon. Sandrea Falconer, at Wednesday March 14 weekly Jamaica House press briefing held at the Office of the Prime Minister. “This system is about linking and the management of databases, and management systems (through) a single web portal,” she pointed out. Ms. Falconer noted that while various technology formats are used in port management, the system will simplify communication. “What we hope to achieve with this, is an improvement in the quality and level of service offered at the air and seaports. This will improve on the collection of taxes and fees, improve customs, immigration, and the general transshipment and transportation of people and cargo,” Minister Falconer stated. The port Management System is a joint venture of the Port Authority of Jamaica and Jamaica Customs. Ms. Falconer said the establishment of the system is critical in light of the government’s overall thrust to increase visitor arrivals, expand the ports, and increase trade.
