Stock market crash: A FTSE 100 stock I’d buy as a global recession looms Royston Wild | Friday, 22nd May, 2020 | More on: ULVR Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s clear by now we’re in the throes of a severe global recession. Lockdown measures continue to be rolled back, but the financial implications of the Covid-19 breakout will be harder to shake off.Stock pickers need to be more careful in this tough macroeconomic and geopolitical environment. Current events don’t mean they need to run for the hills though. There remain plenty of FTSE 100 shares that should remain profit-making, even as a sharp downturn develops.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…A perfect stock for a global recessionUnilever (LSE: ULVR) is a blue-chip I own. I bought it because its products remain in high demand even when broader consumer confidence sinks. Its products are expensive, relatively speaking. But they aren’t so dear that shoppers begin to shun them as their wallets become lighter.The FTSE 100 comany’s beauty labels, household goods, and food ranges are popular for a number of reasons. It’s a result of the huge sums it pays to market them and keep them living in the public’s consciousness. It’s also because Unilever is committed to innovation to keep its brands fresh, talked about, and reflecting changes in broader consumer behaviour.Sales of its Dove products, for example, have benefitted recently due to what it calls “microbiome-friendly innovations.” In layman’s terms, this refers to producing products that are kinder to the billions of natural microorganisms that live on the surface of the skin. Many see microbiome-friendly formulations as the future of skincare.Beloved brandsYou don’t have to take my word on just how popular Unilever’s goods are all over the planet. Kantar Worldpanel’s Brand Footprint 2020 report perfectly illustrates the love affair global consumers have with its brands.Of the world’s top 10 most chosen brands, the FTSE 100 firm can lay claim to three of them. Lifebuoy is the globe’s best-selling soap and sits in fifth place on the list. Sunsilk is perched in seventh position as the most popular haircare product. And its Dove stable of beauty products sits one place lower in eighth.This sort of popularity means Unilever can lift prices on its products without suffering a meaningful dent in volumes too. It’s a quality that exists in both good and bad times.Too cheap!Current City forecasts reflect the resilience of Unilever’s operations. Sure, the number-crunchers expect annual earnings to dip 2% in 2020. This is a reflection of the temporary impact that lockdown measures have had on consumer demand in the early part of the year. Indeed, the FTSE 100 share’s profits are predicted to rise 7% in 2021 on the back of its recession-proof suite of products.Today, Unilever trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 18.5 times. Okay, it’s a little above the Footsie historical average. But it still reflects great value given its position as the ultimate ‘peace of mind’ stock. I’m thinking of buying more shares in the consumer goods goliath. Especially with a global recession almost upon  us.

Transitions for Episcopal Church, DFMS staff

If the Church had been run more efficiently like effective businesses we wouldn’t have some of the financial issues that we have. We are in the “business” of spreading God’s word and serving in His name. Like any effective secular business we must account for what we have for mission and use it wisely. Having efficient and effective structures in place can allow for very productive ministry and mission. I think that Jesus did have a very effective “Senior Management Team” in His apostles and followers who would go on to spread His teachings. It’s about time that our Church learns to more effectively navigate in today’s business enviornment so as to have the greatest impact.

If you have not had that happen to you, you have no idea of how painful it is. The Church marches on, but suddenly you are dropped off the planet! One week you know where you belong and the next week, you don’t really belong anywhere.I realize there is a need for the Church to operate with business principles but we are also called to be different from the business world as usual. “Business has a profit motive. Church has a prophet motive.” Good to know the difference. I don’t think Jesus had a Senior Management Team.

Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Submit a Press Release Submit an Event Listing August 17, 2012 at 5:23 pm Many years ago back in the late 1960s moving the Episcopal HQ from NY City to Indianapolis, Indiana was considered. Costs were (and still are) lower in Indianapolis than NY City. Indianapolis is in the middle of country. I believe the Eli Lilly family offered to bear some of the costs. Of course, this idea was rejected. Since then Indianapolis has experienced a transformation, building a modern convention center and renovating the downtown area. It has transformed itself into a vibrant city. May be it’s time to take another look?Now everything is going more and more to online media it is no longer necessary to be in a huge commercial city like NY to be effective in communications. Teleconferencing is also a lot cheaper and easier than traveling to another city with all the inherent expenses and travel delays. Let’s move into the 21st century.Another thought: those so-called “mega auditorium, God-of-prosperity churches” are losing members and falling apart; for example, Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral has been sold, and Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church has been racked by money problems and scandals. Press Release Service Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Smithfield, NC August 15, 2012 at 6:00 pm Well that sure doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for a church that is supposed to be trying to reverse a downward trend in attendance:* less resources for congregational development,* less work to protect God’s creation (environment),* less communications from the Episcopal News Service, and (my favorite mistake)* fewer legal resources (because we are so not going to ever be sued by anyone again, especially not anyone in South Carolina).There’s a mistake here: we are not losing members because we can’t afford to do “mission” at the parish of diocesan level. If it were a matter of money, Trinity Wall Street would have been a megachurch decades ago. Once again we are mistaking structural change for significant change. And once again we will look back on this move and call it a mistake.

Savings in rental cost would be more than lost with the expense of transportation to and from the center.2) Locating in Washington, DC is not a good idea. First of all, the Washington area is among the most expensive for living costs anywhere in the country; for another, it will be really healthy for the Church Staff to be located away from the East Coast where a very limited view of the world exists. Better to be exposed to others whose lives do not revolve around government.

Check it oout through Trinity Real Estate,they have tons of money. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Reverend Dr. Brent Was says: [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] The Episcopal Church and the church-wide Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS) staff are undergoing transitions to re-orient not only the work of the church-wide staff but also where that work will be conducted.The transitions are primarily, but not completely, a result of actions approved at General Convention 2012 in July. Many are budget-based and most are intended to be responsive to the priorities established at General Convention.“The decisions on the re-orientation and transitions were made by senior management, particularly in affected departments, working as a team,” noted Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls. “The overriding concern has been to make decisions that serve the church as a whole as it engages God’s mission at the most local levels.”Sauls emphasized that the predominant focus is on a redesign. “We have been reviewing and talking about seriously redesigning what we, as a staff, do and how we do it in order to meet the needs of the church in different circumstances than what our current structures were designed to address,” he said. “The whole church is being called to restructure for mission. We as the DFMS staff must engage this work faithfully.”Among the areas scrutinized by the senior management team, Sauls continued, are work responsibilities, parameters of the ministry offerings of a denominational headquarters, staff locations, and implementation of priorities of General Convention particularly around the Five Marks of Mission. The areas of focus at present are office locations, current staffing, and re-visioning the worked done by the church-wide staff.In addition, Sauls is continuing talks with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) on various mutual innovations, particularly in sharing staff and space. While staffing and office locations are being addressed first, there will be a further examination into other options, Sauls stressed, including joint mission efforts and initiatives.Physical surroundingsThe Office of Federal Ministries, located in Washington, D.C., already has moved to quarters on the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. This July move has resulted in rent reduction and decreases in other facility costs.Sauls is working with the international real estate group Cushman & Wakefield to investigate office space for church-wide staff, as announced by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori in June and subsequently endorsed by General Convention in July.A lease arrangement is expected to be completed shortly for unused space on the sixth floor of the Church Center in New York City, thereby generating revenue for DFMS.StaffingIn the staffing areas, the senior management team is analyzing the reorientation of staff for optimum results and to more effectively address the church’s needs and priorities in mission.“It is also imperative to fulfill the commitments made by the presiding bishop’s budget proposal to General Convention, which became the basis for the Five Marks of Mission budget which was approved, to reduce the size of the staff to keep as many resources as possible available at local levels,” Sauls said.As such, the reduction in force (RIF) translates to the cutting of 10.25 full-time equivalent positions, five of which are unfilled. The remaining 5.25 full-time equivalent positions are located in the Los Angeles, New York City and Seattle offices. There also has been a redefining of some existing positions to better meet evolving needs and priorities. In a few cases, redefined jobs will no longer be held by existing staff members and a search process will begin for those positions with some jobs posted by Labor Day.• Four departmental areas have been affected by the staffing reorientation: communication, human resources, legal and mission. These positions have been affected either by staff realignment, RIF, or a reduction in hours in the areas of congregational development, environment, Episcopal News Service, human resources, and legal.• A creative arrangement with The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS) provides for the DFMS officer for stewardship to transition to TENS as a staff member.• The budget and resolutions adopted by General Convention have prompted a refocusing and rebuilding in domestic poverty work and the Development Office.“This is an understandably difficult time for the members of the staff,” Sauls said.“It is hard for us to say goodbye to people we care about and people who have served the church self-sacrificially over the years, something for which all of us in the church should be very grateful.”Severance packages, marked both by responsibility and compassion, have been provided to departing staff including the offer of professional outplacement services. All staff affected by the transition were notified in person by their supervisors. All staff transitions will be completed by Aug. 29. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Knoxville, TN Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rhonda Muir says: Rector Shreveport, LA August 23, 2012 at 9:07 am It will do our leadership and resource officers some good to get away from that small island called Manhattan. The unfortunate reality is that there is often a parochial and somewhat elitist cosmopolitan tone that is generated there wherein the rest of the country is looked upon as mere flyover country. Perhaps rubbing elbows with the real mainstream of America will help change the unfortunate realities that have dragged our Church down for the last decades. August 16, 2012 at 1:20 pm I’d like to read something about evangilism from the DMS……isn’t that what Jesus would have us do, share about him to people who do not know him? We have other bodies to be his hands in the world through kind help to people in need. How will this reorganization and downsizing better prepare the church to reach out tolast_img read more

The long-term fate of the windows honoring Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson remains under debate. Photo: Danielle E. Thomas/Washington National Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] Cuando la luz del sol pasa a través de las vidrieras emplomadas de la Catedral Nacional de Washington los colores se dispersan y los tonos se desprenden de los relatos visuales que normalmente los confinan a un espacio enmarcado y definido. Liberados por la luz, los colores encienden los muros de la catedral como parches de azul, sombras de rosado y manchones de púrpura, transformadas las narrativas visuales en una efímera versión pastel de una prueba de Rorschach.La secuela de un crimen de odio puso en relieve dos vidrieras particulares de la catedral. En la noche del 17 de junio de 2015, Dylann Roof agredió a tiros a 12 personas, matando a nueve de ellas, durante un estudio bíblico en el templo Emanuel de la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana en Charleston, Carolina del Sur. La acto de violencia, que tenía una motivación racial, provocó que muchas instituciones removieran las banderas confederadas. En la Catedral Nacional de Washington, el entonces deán Gary Hall pidió la remoción de dos vidrieras —una de ellas en conmemoración del general confederado Robert E. Lee, y la otra en memoria del general confederado Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. En ambas aparece una pequeña bandera confederada, ofreciendo un claro reconocimiento del Sur de los tiempos de la guerra de Secesión a favor del cual ambos generales lucharon.Roof  “se rodeó de estos símbolos confederados”, dijo la Rda. Kelly Brown Douglas, canóniga y teóloga en la catedral y profesora de religión en Goucher College. Reconociendo la violencia actual asociada con los símbolos, el cabildo de la Catedral (su organismo de gobierno) creo un equipo de trabajo para recomendar una manera de salir adelante, en lugar de sencillamente remover las vidrieras.Una vidriera dedicada al general confederado Robert E. Lee fue donada originalmente a la Catedral Nacional de Washington por las Hijas de la Confederación en 1953. Foto de la Catedral Nacional de WashingtonEn un informe en junio pasado, el equipo de trabajo propuso dejar las vidrieras en su lugar por el momento: “Las vidrieras proporcionan un catalizador para discusiones sinceras acerca de la raza y el legado de la esclavitud y para abordar los incómodos temas de la raza en Estados Unidos que con tanta frecuencia se eluden. Además, las vidrieras sirven como un profundo testimonio de la compleja historia de la propia catedral en relación con la raza”. El informe instó luego al capítulo a resolver el asunto para junio de 2018.Con el informe en su mano, el capítulo decidió que si bien las vidrieras deberían quedarse, las incrustaciones donde aparecían las banderas no podían permanecer, y rápidamente las reemplazaron con dos paneles de vidrio, un rojo y otro azul. “La bandera de batalla (confederada) es una imagen problemática y racista que no tiene lugar en la Catedral”, dijo  Kevin Eckstrom, director de comunicaciones de la Catedral Nacional de Washington. Brown Douglas, que fue miembro del equipo de trabajo, se mostró de acuerdo. “Independientemente de lo que la bandera confederada significara históricamente, ha venido a simbolizar la supremacía blanca”, una posición que pugna con los “valores cristianos”, señaló ella. Banderas aparte, Lee y Jackson “combatieron a favor de la Confederación, y al hacerlo estaban luchando por mantener la institución de la esclavitud”, añadió Brown Douglas.Los líderes de la catedral no siempre han creído que el legado de la Confederación choca con los principios episcopales. La catedral aceptó, en 1931, una oferta de las Hijas Unidas de la Confederación (UDC por su sigla en inglés) de costear un monumento en recordación de Robert E. Lee, quien era episcopal. El objetivo fundamental de las UDC era “honrar la memoria de los que sirvieron y los que cayeron en el servicio de los estados confederados”.   Veintidós años pasarían antes de que el proyecto se concretara en la forma de dos vidrieras emplomadas. Los archivos de la catedral incluidos en el informe del equipo de trabajo revelan una conversación amable y solidaria entre la catedral y las representantes de las UDC. En el papel, al menos, nadie parece haber cuestionado la inclusión de la bandera de batalla confederada.Una vidriera emplomada en honor del general confederado Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson en la nave de la Catedral Nacional de Washington incluye escenas de la vida de Jackson y de su muerte en batalla. Foto cortesía de la Catedral Nacional de Washington.“Nos ha tomado un tiempo llegar hasta aquí” dijo Heidi Kim, la funcionaria encargada de reconciliación racial del personal de la Iglesia Episcopal. Si bien los cimientos de la Catedral Nacional de Washington se echaron en 1907, décadas después de la abolición de la esclavitud, Kim señaló que los esclavos construyeron muchas iglesias episcopales. Muchos episcopales fueron dueños de esclavos y otros, incluso norteños, lucraron con la trata de esclavos, una historia que se cuenta en términos personales en el documental Trazas de la trata  [Traces of the Trade].“El grado en el cual casi todo el mundo en la nación que tenía algún privilegio económico se benefició de la esclavitud, en el Norte y en el Sur” fue considerable, dijo el Rdo. Dr. Robert W. Prichard, profesor de historia de la Iglesia en el Seminario Teológico de Virginia y autor de Una historia de la Iglesia Episcopal  [A History of the Episcopal Church].En 2008, la Iglesia Episcopal pidió perdón por su papel en la esclavitud.  A las disculpas siguió una resolución aprobada en la Convención General en 2006, instando a la Iglesia“…a abordar las disparidades y la injusticia raciales sistémicas en la Iglesia y en la cultura en general”, que ahondaba en esa sensibilidad. La opinión sobre lo que esto significa y cuán lejos debería de llegar varía entre los episcopales.Muchos creen que las vidrieras deberían quedarse en la catedral como un recordatorio del pasado de la Iglesia Episcopal. Hay algo en remover esas vidrieras que parece un poco la negación de lo que hemos sido”, dijo Danielle A. Gaherty, miembro y líder laica en la iglesia de la Trinidad [Trinity] del barrio de Lake Rock en Lakeville, Connecticut.“Yo no creo que deberían dejar el edificio, especialmente en este momento cuando hay tanta controversia en el mundo sobre las relaciones raciales”, afirmó ella. “Me parece que ahora es más importante que nunca recordar”.William Thomas Martin, sacerdote parroquial jubilado de Williamsburg, Virginia, se mostraba de acuerdo. “Removiendo las vidrieras estaríamos desechando la memoria, y si desechamos la memoria, vamos a repetir nuestros errores. La bandera confederada es un símbolo de nuestro pecado original, pienso yo. Nos recuerda nuestra propia falibilidad y nuestra necesidad de la gracia de Dios”.Doug Desper, un episcopal de Waynesboro, Virginia, cree que las vidrieras de Lee-Jackson deberían quitarse de la Catedral Nacional de Washington. Al igual que Gaherty, Martin y Riely Temple, él se sintió compelido a comentar un artículo de Religious News Service cerca de las vidrieras que se publicó en la página web de ENS en octubre., “No creo que banderas de batalla de ninguna clase pertenezcan” a una casa de culto, dice él. Y algo más importante, a él no le gusta el criterio de “un Sur criminal versus un Norte virtuoso” que se desprende del debate. Esa antinomia, arguye él, ignora las complejidades de la vida norteamericana a mediados del siglo XIX. Aboga por una vidriera de la reconciliación que reemplace las de Lee-Jackson, pero “no creo que debamos seguir pidiendo excusas. Creo que lo que debemos hacer ahora es mirar cuanto hemos avanzado a partir de donde estaban nuestros antepasados”.Respecto a un continuo mantra de “lo sentimos”, Brown Douglas está de acuerdo en que no es la respuesta. “Las disculpas son gracia barata”, dijo él. “La Iglesia debe hablar de arrepentimiento. Uno tiene que nombrar el pecado, y luego darse vuelta y marchar por un rumbo distinto”.El punto que Lee y Jackson fueron tan complejos como cualesquier hombres, los matices de sus vidas fueron más grandes que las vidrieras emplomadas. El Rdo. Delman Coates, pastor principal de la iglesia bautista Monte Enón [Mt. Ennon Baptist Church] en Clinton, Maryland, dijo que el reconocimiento no basta para tranquilizarlo respecto a las vidrieras, incluso si se explicara su contexto. “Para mí, como afroamericano, esos son símbolos de un pasado doloroso y horrible”, expresó Coates, que participó en el panel [titulado] “¿Qué debe hacer la Iglesia blanca? que debatió sobre el tema en la catedral en julio pasado. Tanto así, dice él, que dejar las vidrieras de Lee-Jackson tal como están “le dificultaría” a él sentirse plenamente bienvenido en la catedral.Riley Temple, miembro del equipo de trabajo, quiere que la catedral redoble sus empeños en torno a las vidrieras ahora. Él cree que los eventos hasta la fecha han sido intelectualmente fallidos, que no consiguen abordar todas las serie de emociones en juego. Quiere que la catedral aborde ese desequilibrio. “Nadie está pensando en nuestro nivel de incomodidad y la continua injuria y agresión [que representan] esas vidrieras’, apuntó. “Ellos no quieren que los blancos se sientan incómodos. La verdad nos va a horrorizar, y no podemos llegar a la reconciliación sin horrorizarnos”.Pero Brown Douglas citó otro paso esencial en este proceso: “antes de que podamos hablar de reconciliación, tenemos que hablar de justicia”. A ese fin, dijo ella, la catedral está creando programas y formando asociaciones, incluida una con la congregación de Coates. Durante la Cuaresma, Brown Douglas dirigirá un programa de estudio sobre justicia social y racial. Y el 29 de marzo, participará en el panel de la catedral “Santos y pecadores: Robert E. Lee y Stonewall Jackson.”Movilizar un movimiento de justicia social y reconciliación dentro del ámbito más amplio de la Iglesia cristiana tiene sentido para Coates. “El racismo y el racismo estructural en Estados Unidos estuvieron justificados teológicamente”, afirmó él. “A fin de progresar en una gama de problemas de justicia social, debemos reafirmar y reinventar nuestra propia teología”. Willie James Jennings, profesor asociado de teología sistemática y estudios africanos en la Escuela de Teología de Yale, autor de La imaginación cristiana: la teología y los orígenes de la raza  [The Christian Imagination: Theology and the Origins of Race] se muestra de acuerdo. “El racismo tiene una profunda arquitectura cristiana, y no hay modo de lidiar con ese pasado sin llegar a través del cristianismo”, afirmó.La trayectoria teológica y ética de lidiar con esto para las iglesias episcopales y otras con muy pocos afroamericanos debe incluir una sincera introspección. “Eso compete a una denominación que tiene un sentido de su propia blanquitud”, dice él. “No entienden de qué manera su cristianismo y su blanquitud se alimentan mutuamente. [Como cristianos] siempre es importante para nosotros mostrarle a la gente lo que significa vivir en la verdad”.Las fuertes emociones que se desatan cuando las personas hablan sobre la raza demandan atención —son importantes. Jennings señalaba “la profunda frustración [que provoca] la manera en que la gente rehúsa reconocer el horror de todo esto”. Si hay una buena nueva en la senda de este desafío, es que “la Iglesia tiene un papel vital en ayudar a la gente a asumir lo que sienten, no sólo lo que piensan”, subrayó.Ahora mismo, los sentimientos que suscitan las vidrieras parecen inextricablemente vinculados a un interés generalizado no sobre el pasado de este país, sino sobre su actual clima interpersonal y político. “Somos una nación tan dividida como lo hemos sido siempre. Estamos tan divididos racialmente como lo hemos estado siempre”, dijo Brown Douglas. Al poner en tela de juicio las vidrieras de Lee-Jackson, la catedral entró de lleno en ese espacio sensible e incómodo.Cualquiera que sea el resultado, Coates y Jennings le dan crédito a los líderes y miembros de la comunidad de la catedral por sacar a colación su papel en la recordación y glorificación de un doloroso pasado con huellas omnipresentes. “Quiero reconocer el valor que conlleva ver lo que otros rehúsan ver”, dijo Jennings. “Les estoy agradecido por hacer eso. Es realmente importante”,En su informe, el equipo de trabajo recomendó ahondar en el tópico como comunidad mediante foros, una “auditoría” de los relatos que la catedral y los edificios aledaños cuentan y con toda clase de expresiones artísticas. Brown Douglas espera que el proceso responderá las preguntas: “¿Qué estamos sugiriendo respecto a quienes somos? Pero más que eso, ¿Qué estamos diciendo respecto a quien es Dios?”. Ella espera también que [ese proceso] descubrirá “las voces que se han quedado por oír, la historia subyugada”. Aún queda por ver cómo se incorporan esas voces a la Catedral Nacional y cómo encajan las vidrieras de Lee-Jackson en esta narrativa en proceso de evolución.— Heather Beasley Doyle es una periodista independiente radicada en Massachusetts. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Limerick brothers have no plans to cash in on billion euro…

first_imgPrint BusinessNewsLimerick brothers have no plans to cash in on billion euro firmBy Editor – January 24, 2014 735 WhatsApp Email Patrick and John Collison of StripeLimerick entrepreneurs Patrick and John CollisonLIMERICK brothers Patrick and John Collison have no plans to cash in on the success of their €1.3 billion company and will use a €60 million round of fresh investment raised this week to fund international expansion.From Castletroy and now based in California, the Collisons created Stripe, a low-cost way for small companies to accept online payments, in 2009 and have been steadily building the business since.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up John (23) and Patrick (25), a former winner of the Young Scientist competition, created an online auction payments company, Auctomatic, which was sold for almost €4 million while they were still in secondary school at Castletroy College.Their latest success story began when they saw how difficult it was for small companies to accept payments from customers online.“We found it really hard in our previous business to accept payment over the internet. It felt like many other people would be having the same problem, so we set about solving it”, explained John.“We started working on Stripe almost two years before it launched publicly. There was a long period where we were writing code to support a small handful of users, and navigating a relatively unfamiliar industry.“We wrote the first lines of code in October 2009. Three months later, we got our first customer. We stayed going, writing code, starting to hire people and trying to find new customers. By the time we launched publicly in September 2011, we had ten people on the team.”Stripe now employs 83 people at its headquarters in San Francisco and the company has become a recognisable name in global ecommerce, with backers such as Paypal founder Peter Thiel and entrepreneur Elon Musk numbered among its investors.Social media giant Twitter is reportedly in discussions with the company over a deal that would allow Twitter enable companies to accept payments on the social media platform.However, Chief executive, Patrick Collison says that they won’t be in a rush to take advantage of the company’s latest valuation.“We’ve no interest in selling the company. John and I are very lucky to work with the people we do on building something for the long term, and we wouldn’t like to change that,” he said.This is also the view of his younger brother who said they were focused on opening international offices and delivering on Stripe’s goal of building an easier way of paying for goods and services online.“It’s still early days for the payment systems that power the internet. It’s outrageously difficult and expensive to move money between countries.“Fraud and storing credentials still cause merchants hassle. So online payments is a great place to go hunting for problems worth solving”, said John.

Countrywide will soon face a takeover attempt, predicts industry watcher

first_imgJohn Bodinham, an industry watcher, minior Countrywide investor and former agent, says his gut feeling is that the company is very likely to face a takeover attempt sooner or later.The 64-year-old, who is based in Wales and has a substantial track record in the residential and commercial property sectors, says his research into Countrywide points to a takeover attempt by Robin Paterson soon.As The Negotiator recently reported, Paterson has been buying up Countrywide shares in recent weeks and now owns just over 10% of its stock.Bodinham reckons Paterson is a bit too ‘long in the tooth’ to hang around and would have no difficulty getting some investors on board to join him ‘as he is a performer’.Successful career“Paterson has enjoyed a long and successful career so this could be a last roll of the dice – therefore why bother making a move unless you are going to go the whole hog,” says Bodinham.He says an offer of £2.75 a share ‘would win the races’ which would value the company at approximately £95 million.“Add on the estimated £75 million debt the company is carrying and you have £170 million for a clean slate – I think this is a really exciting opportunity.”Bodinham’s research, shown to The Negotiator, reveals that many of Countrywide’s brands and branches are in reality doing very well outside of London with some branches having 70% of their stock SSTC, and that he is baffled that the current management continue to struggle to turn the company around – as Paterson documented at length last week.john bodinham Robin Paterson Countrywide August 25, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 25th August 2020 at 8:48 amA Countrywide shake up is very imminent, I think the debt analysis is closer to 90M, off the top of my head I think 7.5M alone, a year is set aside to cover non profit making offices alone, where the strategy is to keep the lights on rather than pay huge rents on empty units. And i think they spent 2M recently looking at expert ways to save money, but none of this was implemented.Hopefully, and Patterson is correct, some asset stripping, and the application of a cohesive proptech utilisation, as set out in his brilliant open letter to the embattled chair at Countrywide, will result in a trim, profitable and formidable agency, much like the Countrywide I was proud to work for in the 1980’s.For me, in six weeks you can turn a loss making agency business around, with 690 physical branches, trimmed to 400, within 6 months, you could have a business that duplicates the profitability of the Skipton Building society model. Which is based upon strong management from the top, with a shared, driven core objective, high levels of service, equals profit.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
