Prior to joining Segro, Sleath, 49, was finance director of automotive engineering group Wagon and head of audit and assurance for the Midlands at Arthur Anderson.Earlier this week Segro sold a portfolio of industrial properties near Heathrow Airport to the British Telecom Pension Scheme (BTPS) for £79.25m.The Westcore Industrial Portfolio, sold to fund manager Hermes Real Estate acting for BTPS, comprises six multi-let freehold industrial estates, with a total lettable area of 71,600 square metres, Segro said in a statement on Monday.

UK housing market in moderate pick up

first_img Show Comments ▼ SIGNS of life emerged from the UK’s ailing housing market yesterday, with mortgage approvals edging upwards and house prices recording an unexpected rise. Approvals rebounded by seven per cent from December’s slump, to number 45,723 in January, according to the Bank of England. Meanwhile, the Nationwide house price index was up 0.3 per cent in February, compared to the previous month.However, mortgage approvals remain below the six month average – of 46,686 per month –, and significantly below their long term average.“Mortgage approvals have actually averaged 90,000 a month since 1993,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight.“This was still the second lowest level since March 2009 and mortgage approvals may well have been held back in December by severe weather.”Nationwide’s house price report still left prices 0.1 per cent lower than the same time last year, averaging £161,183 per house.

Lithuanian regulator threatens to block illegal operators

first_imgThe warning comes after the Gambling Supervisory Authority last month imposed its first ever fine against an operator. UAB Tete-a-Tete Casino, operator of the CBet brand, was told to pay €15,000 (£13,049/$18,145) for unreasonably setting betting limits on an online customer. Tags: Block Ilegal AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Gambling laws in the country permit the Control Authority to take action against unlicensed operators, including blocking access to their websites in the country. Lithuanian regulator threatens to block illegal operators 30th April 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Legal & compliance “After having identified the fact of illegal remote gambling activity in the Republic of Lithuania, the Control Authority is authorised to take measures established in the Gaming Law.” The only way an operator can be taken off the blacklist is if it secures the relevant licence to offer online gambling in Lithuania.  “The Control Authority strongly recommends all online gambling operators review all their activities related to remote gambling in Lithuania and take actions to ensure that such services are not available for Lithuanian customers,” the Control Authority said. Operators must hold the correct licence in order to legally offer gambling in Lithuania, with those running in the country without approval being regarded as illegal operators. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Also last month, the Gambling Supervisory Authority fined an employee of a digital media business for placing illegal gambling advertisements on basketball news and information website Krepšinis.net. The Lithuanian Gaming Control Authority has warned unlicensed operators that it could block access to their websites if they continue to offer online gambling in the country without a permit. Regions: Lithuania Topics: Legal & compliance Legal Any operator that is blocked is also added to the Control Authority’s blacklist of unlicensed and illegal operators, which is updated regularly on its website. The site was found to be hosting gambling ads with slogans and animated backgrounds, and featuring promotional bonuses, which are prohibited under Lithuanian regulations.

The Kanabo Group (LSE: KNB) share price is up 32%, at the time of writing. The gain came after the medical cannabis group announced a new production agreement.Kanabo will partner with Polish firm PharmaCann Polska. The two companies will produce medicinal cannabis formulations for Kanabo’s VapePod device.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…It’s been a rollercoaster ride for shareholders who bought into the business when the stock floated on 16 February. On its market debut, Kanabo’s share price doubled in a day, before slipping back. Today’s gains leave the stock up by around 35% since its flotation.VapePod nearing production?Today’s news appears to bring Kanabo’s medicinal cannabis VapePod inhaler a step closer to production. The two companies will establish a dedicated production line for medicinal cannabis at PharmaCann’s production site in North Macedonia.Kanabo plans to supply filling equipment to support PharmaCann’s production. Initial capacity will be up to 36,000 cartridges per month, with the potential for expansion, if needed.PharmaCann grows cannabis indoors, using a pesticide-free, hydroponic system. Kanabo says it will have full visibility of the production process, from extraction through to filling and distribution.More deals likely?Kanabo’s share price may be rising because this is the company’s second deal in two weeks. On 23 February, it announced a UK distribution agreement with Lyphe Group. Lyphe will make the medicinal cannabis formula developed for VapePod, available to patients taking part in pain management trial Project Twenty21.The PharmaCann and Lyphe deals form part of Kanabo’s strategy of developing medical-grade cannabis products. The firm hopes these products will become an alternative to smoking cannabis for medicinal purposes.Kanabo is also engaged in developing non-THC cannabinoid (CBD) products for the consumer wellness market. That’s important because THC is the active ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. CBD-only products are said to provide therapeutic benefits with no psychoactive effects.Will Kanabo’s share price keep rising?Kanabo’s market-cap has now risen above £80m, suggesting investors see considerable potential. Founder and CEO Avihu Tamir remains heavily invested, with a 27% stake in the group.However, commercial progress so far has been limited. Information shared for the flotation shows Kanabo generated revenue of £82,124 in 2019. And in the first half of 2020, revenue was only £14,389.As an early-stage start-up with research and staffing costs, it’s running at a loss. To boost cash reserves, it raised £6m at the IPO, selling new shares to selected investors at 6.5p each. This should be enough for near-term funding needs.I haven’t been able to find any broker forecasts to provide a guide to its expected financial performance, which makes it tough to estimate the likely future value of the shares.Kanabo’s share price was close to 24p, at the time of writing.

Image source: Getty Images The 2021 outlook for the global economy remains fraught with danger. The Covid-19 crisis is still rolling on, inflationary pressures are growing, and fresh rounds of trade spats are looming in the background. But these problems won’t derail my investment plans and I’ve continued looking for the best shares to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA.This is because I don’t invest in UK shares based on how I think they will perform beyond the short-to-medium term. I buy according to the probable returns I will enjoy over the course of a decade, perhaps more. It’s also because I think some top-quality stocks are too cheap for me to miss.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…Besides, there are many UK shares out there I think should thrive regardless of economic conditions in 2021.A top UK value shareIt looks like the British economy could be in for a slow recovery from Covid-19 due to its dependence on a strong services sector. Brexit problems are also threatening to crush GDP expansion over the next few years at least. It’s a scenario I think will play into the hands of Begbies Traynor Group (LSE: BEG).This UK share provides a range of services for companies in distress and is one of the country’s biggest insolvency practitioners. Its counter-cyclical services mean that its phones could well be ringing off the hook as the number of firms going to the wall is unfortunately predicted to balloon. Financial data specialist Red Flag Alert reckons a mammoth 193,721 companies are under threat of extinction within six months of Covid-19 furlough schemes ending.Bear in mind that it operates in a highly-regulated industry where legislative changes could harm Begbies Traynor’s profits. But I still think it’s one of the best shares to buy for value lovers like me. City analysts think annual earnings here will rocket 40% in the coming financial year (to April 2022), rising from the single-digit increase predicted for fiscal 2021. This leaves the UK share trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.4.Another top share to buyKape Technologies (LSE: KAPE) doesn’t offer splendid paper value like Begbies Traynor. The cybersecurity giant’s share price soared after it announced the $150m acquisition of industry rival Webselenese this week. Now this UK share trades on a forward PEG above 8.I still think Kape could be one of the best growth stocks to buy today, though, as the threat of cyber attacks grows. The government’s latest annual Cyber Security Breaches Survey of last spring showed that almost half of British businesses had experienced cyber security breaches or attacks in the previous 12 months. The onset of Covid-19 has made the problem much worse too. I believe that total spend by companies in the UK and abroad should keep rising, despite broader economic conditions.And I think Kape Technologies is a great UK share to buy to make decent investment profits from this theme, even though the threat of high-profile failures of its systems is always a risk that could dent future business.

Lions 2013: The No 8 debate

first_imgFormFaletau has been a model of consistency throughout the season, but Heaslip hit a run of form towards the end of the domestic season with Leinster, impressing in the Amlin Challenge Cup final and dotting down to clinch the RaboDirect Pro12 title. He’s also hit the ground running in Oz. Easter says: “Now the team is out there, you might see a vast improvement in one player where form is concerned. Some guys will fade after the long season, where others, say like Paul O’Connell and Dan Lydiate, who have hardly played, will be fresh.”Silent type: Easter would Faletau at No 8CombinationsWith a mere six games before the Test series starts, and with any players who featured in domestic finals rested for the first game of the tour, there hasn’t been much time for Gatland to test out different back-row partnerships. But Easter says: “Combinations will have a lot to do with selection. So far they’ve bulldozed the opposition so easily, there’s been no inkling of what’s going to work really well in a Test match.“But Sam Warburton’s captain so he’ll be there, and he’s used to playing with Faletau. If I was picking the team, he’d be my choice.” Who would you pick to start at No 8 v Australia? Tweet us @Rugbyworldmag or tell us on Facebook Rugby World Magazine not for featured LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Head to head: Heaslip wraps up Faletau at the 2011 World Cup quarter-final. Who will earn the Lions Test jersey?By Bea Asprey, Rugby World Writer MANY MINUTES will be spent and even more pints will be sunk by rugby fans discussing the options for the Lions Test back row between now and 22 June. Competition for those three berths is fierce, and in particular, it’s hard to drive a wedge between Toby Faletau and Jamie Heaslip, who are battling it out for the coveted No 8 jersey.TemperamentBoth popular members of the squad, the two are chalk and cheese in terms of temperament. Dragon Faletau is one of the quietest, most softly-spoken Lions, whereas Leinsterman Heaslip, in contrast, is vocal and opinionated. Heaslip has more Test caps under the hood – 57 for Ireland and three for the Lions – and has experience on his side. However, Faletau, at just 22, has started all of his 26 Test matches, including every game of Wales’ 2012 Grand Slam, showing the faith Warren Gatland and Rob Howley have in him. This was after making a name for himself at the 2011 World Cup, where he was part of a side that reached the semi-final. He’s also calmness personified, and you would assuage that he would deal with the pressure cauldron of a Lions Test debut comfortably.Pick me! Heaslip in action v Western ForceBall-carrying & defenceA fundamental part of any No 8’s game, Faletau has been known to destroy opposition teams with his pace and ability to break tacklers, and he’s also a nightmare for those attacking against him. A fine judge of the duo’s relative merits is former England No 8 Nick Easter who comments: “Faletau is a destructive ball-carrier and a dynamic runner, so adds an element of skill, whereas Heaslip is a better ball player.” This may be, but Heaslip dominated the stats in his performance against Western Force, finishing the game as the Lions’ top ball-carrier with 118 metres carried, nine defenders beaten and 13 out of 13 tackles completed.LeadershipHeaslip has captained his province, Leinster, on numerous occasions, and was named Ireland captain for this year’s Six Nations, famously ousting Brian O’Driscoll from his decade-long tenure. But while he was delighted with the accolade, it seemed to affect his performances on the pitch, during a dismal campaign which ended in Irish coach Declan Kidney being relieved of his duties. Faletau is no leader in the same mould, but his team-mates surely take inspiration from his team ethic and dirty work at close-quarters.last_img read more

The site is part of a community subdivision created in the mid 2000’s, featuring several clusters of indigenous stringy bark trees and has a 1 in 4 slope across the property.Save this picture!© David RussellRecommended ProductsDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesResidential ApplicationsFastmount®Heavy Duty Panel Fastener at ‘Sandboxes’ HouseDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE Luce Being on the outskirts of the township, the views to the north and west are of the rolling pastures of the adjoining farmland. The site of the house was juggled between the existing stringy bark trees with only one large pine tree (introduced species) being removed to suit the pavilion arrangement. Due to the slope of the land and the desire to minimise the impact on the site, the residence is comprised of two independent pavilions perpendicular to each other suspended above the ground. The upper level, with the main entry being from the access roadway, provides the living area, whilst the lower level caters for sleeping and guest areas of the house. Save this picture!© David Russell Arrival to the site is pronounced with a large concrete entry slab from which point the suspended walkway is launched, providing the linkage to the entry of the house. The living pavilion has been orientated along the east-west axis with full height glazing on the north side to maximise views and solar access in winter with the roof overhang providing protection to the glazing during summer. Save this picture!Section The lower pavilion is orientated on the north-south axis and appears to float below the upper structure with the only connection being a glazed perimeter. Both pavilions are largely supported by four rectangular columns located at the intersecting corners of the two pavilions. The house is anchored back to the earth with a robust rammed earth wall, which is a feature in the living area, and charcoal coloured laundry and entry ‘pod.’ Save this picture!© David Russell The two pavilions with their ample glazing and lightweight reflective cladding reinforce the lightness of the structure as they float across the site in contrast to the grounding entry pod. Passive environmental design elements including double glazing, louvres for cross ventilation, a heavily insulated external skin and large roof overhangs assist in the sustainability of the pavilions. Stormwater is harvested from all the roofs, stored in large above ground tanks and pumped back into the house. In the event of the tanks overflowing, the excess water will ‘bubble up’ onto the stone creek bed and flow through the site. Save this picture!Lower Floor Plan Construction access to the site was difficult due to the slope of land and on this basis the selection of structural steel to provide the framework for the two platform levels was the logical choice.
