In the long-awaited guidance to the Act, released yesterday after a delay of more than two months, the Ministry of Justice sought to reassure companies that “bona fide hospitality…is recognised as an established and important part of doing business”. But with a single VIP hospitality package for 10 people to attend the Olympic opening ceremony running to more than £55,000, businesses are keen to err on the side of caution.“Parliament would be advised to consider the content of the guidance which it issues in light of these concerns,” said Jonathan Walters, a partner in the sport group at law firm Charles Russell. “It would be a great shame if companies were deterred from entertaining clients at the biggest sporting event to hit our shores since 1966 for these reasons.” Justice minister Ken Clarke also backed up rumours that some foreign companies listed in London would be exempt from the Act, sparking concern that UK companies could be left at a competitive disadvantage. “Mere listing on the London Stock Exchange, or just the fact of having a UK incorporated subsidiary, would not necessarily mean the act applies,” he said. But while Clarke played down the Act’s overseas effect, the Serious Fraud Office – which will be responsible for enforcement – is keen to stress it will exercise a firm extraterritorial hand. Speaking to a conference of Russian business leaders in mid-March, Serious Fraud Office director Richard Alderman said: “Do not be surprised if the SFO takes a wide view of this phrase so that we can ensure that the policy objective of ensuring competitiveness is complied with,” he said.AT A GLANCE: THE BRIBERY ACT PRINCIPLESPROPORTIONATE PROCEDURESThe procedures that a company must have in place to prevent bribery should be proportionate to the risks it faces and to the nature, scale and complexity of its activities. This offers welcome respite to smaller companies that are less likely to take part in overseas transactions.TOP-LEVEL COMMITMENTLeadership on preventing bribery must come from management, who should foster a culture within the organisation in which bribery is never acceptable.RISK ASSESSMENTCompanies will be responsible for ongoing and in-depth risk assessment of its potential exposure to bribery, both internally and by people it’s associated with.DUE DILIGENCECompanies will have to carry out stringent due diligence investigations into anyone they choose to do business with, or who will carry out business on their behalf, in order to mitigate the risk of bribery.COMMUNICATION AND TRAININGBusinesses must make sure that all employees and associates are aware of the official bribery policy and procedures, and provide training on compliance where necessary.MONITORING AND REVIEWProcedures in place to prevent bribery must be constantly reviewed and improved where potential gaps are found. center_img KCS-content More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 30 March 2011 8:39 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Veikkaus sees decline in Finnish problem gambling

first_img A new study commissioned by Finland’s state-owned gaming operator Veikkaus has revealed a slight decline in problem gambling among the country’s population.Some 2.3% of the population – around 95,000 people – is estimated to have a gambling problem according to the study carried out by market research specialist Taloustutkimus. This saw 5,000 Finnish citizens aged between 15 and 79 interviewed between February and April this year.That number is down from the 2.8% of respondents classed as showing signs of a gambling problem in the previous edition of the survey, that was published in November 2019. It also represents a 28.6% decline from the 3.3% problem gambling rate revealed in a December 2017 survey. Veikkaus said 26% of those with gambling problems identified Veikkaus as the only operator they played with. A further 15% of respondents that only gamble with offshore operators said they considered themselves to have a problem.The operator said it expects the shut-down of its slot machine network – which Veikkaus said is considered to the biggest cause of problems — between March and July as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) will have “a significant impact on both gambling as a whole and the problems caused by gambling”.During the period, it added, there were some signs that land-based players migrated to Veikkaus’ digital offerings, but added this shift was small in terms of both customer numbers and gaming revenue.Veikkaus last week said it expects its 2020 profits to fall by as much as €300m (£268.6m/$354.5m), after reporting a 28.1% year-on-year decline in gross revenue and 33.6% drop in profit for the first half of the year.Gross gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June fell to €607.2m, with Veikkaus estimating that the total was down by around €200m as a result of the disruption caused by Covid-19. Its profit of €332.7m for the period was down 33.6% year-on-year.Veikkaus is looking to reduce the number of machines in operation by around 40% to 10,500 by the end of 2020.This will be followed by the introduction of mandatory registration from January 2021, requiring all players to have an account with the operator in order to gamble. Until this comes into effect, all slot machines will display timers, which notify players after every 15 minutes of play.

BT shares are gaining on today’s news. Is it time to buy?

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img BT (LSE: BT-A) shares were among the biggest risers in the FTSE 100 this morning as the company released a surprisingly upbeat half-year report.Could now be the time to finally be bullish on the company? While not entirely convinced, I certainly think there are reasons for holders to be more positive than they were. 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…“Relatively resilient”Revenue at the telecommunications titan came in at £10.6bn over the six months to the end of September. This was 8% lower than over the same period in 2019. Nevertheless, this performance was regarded as “relatively resilient” considering the impact of Covid-19 on parts of the business.BT has been hit by cancellations to the sporting calendar. It’s also seen a decline in sales of legacy products and lower business activity. As such, simply meeting expectations was probably as good as investors could hope for. Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) came in 5% lower (£3.72bn) than the previous year. However, this was helped by cost-saving measures introduced by management. Pre-tax profit fell by 20% over the period to £1.06bn.On an operational front, BT said that its rollout of fibre broadband has hit record levels in the second quarter of its financial year. The FTSE 100 firm also stated that its 5G-ready customer base was now over one million and that this network was available in 112 towns and cities in the UK.However, it’s the better-than-expected outlook that seems to have got the market excited about BT shares. Positive outlookToday, the company announced that it would be raising the lower end of its guidance on 2020/21 earnings. This would now be between £7.3bn and £7.5bn. As a result of more cost-saving and sales of growth products, BT then expects this number to rise to “at least £7.9bn” in 2022/23. But there’s more. The fact that earnings are now expected to be higher than previously expected makes it increasingly likely that BT will go ahead and reinstate dividends axed earlier this year.Right now, there’s no mention of how large this payment might be (it’s likely to be low). However, this news has clearly been welcomed with open arms by a market desperate for some light at the end of the tunnel. After all, BT’s biannual cash payouts have been one of the main reasons to hold the stock over the years. BT shares: too cheap?It’s hard to ignore the fact that the performance of BT shares over 2020 so far has been pretty dire. Priced just below the 200p mark in January, they’re now up for grabs at almost half this price.With markets skittish over the possibility of rising coronavirus infection rates and more restrictions being enforced, there’s clearly no guarantee they won’t resume their downward descent after today. Having fallen for so long, it’s not unreasonable to be sceptical on BT, especially with net debt of almost £18bn. Then again, today’s numbers and news could turn out to be the point at which the shares begin to look a tad more appealing, particularly for income investors.So, while I wouldn’t pile in just yet, I wouldn’t be against building a position from this point either. On less than six times forecast earnings before today, a lot of concerns appear to be priced in.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Venezuelans pay tribute to Lumumba

first_imgThe following statement was released on Feb. 26 by the Embassy of the ­Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela located in Washington, D.C. Go to venezuela-us.orgChokwe LumumbaThe Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela wishes to express its heartfelt condolences on the passing of our dear brother Mayor Chokwe Lumumba on February 25, 2014. We remember him today as a dear friend and ally of Venezuela in the struggle for peace and justice in the world.Simply put, Mayor Lumumba was a man of conviction who, as an activist, lawyer and elected official, dedicated his life to serving the oppressed, in his own country and throughout the world. He defended well-known human rights activists and Black Panther Assata Shakur, among others. He also helped found progressive activist organizations such as the National Black Human Rights Coalition and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. Most recently as Mayor, he spearheaded innovative new programs in conjunction with the organized people of Jackson, Mississippi.But his love for the poor didn’t stop at home; he defended people’s movements for social justice and deep economic and political change wherever they existed, from revolutions in Africa to Latin America and especially the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela.We Venezuelans especially remember him for his most recent show of support when on February 14, 2014, in defense of our people and sovereign nation he stated: “My administration is deeply concerned with the political unrest and violence occurring in Venezuela. We strongly condemn the killings that occurred … [and] call on the United States and all other governments to respect the outcome of the national elections of December 2013. We firmly call on all foreign governments to respect the sovereignty and self-determination of the Bolivarian Government of Venezuela, and not interfere in its internal affairs.”We will not forget Chokwe Lumumba’s solidarity and never ending commitment to fight for a better world. He will be deeply missed. But, like so many of our most sacred heroes who have come before him, he will be remembered for being a man who not only talked the talk but walked the walk.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
