Kohl’s From BestBlackFriday.com Amazon put out a press release on Black Friday to announce its Cyber Monday plans. It does not do an official ad scan, so BestBlackFriday.com did a custom one. The sale will actually started Saturday, November 25, with new doorbusters going live on Monday. Amazon’s Cyber Monday event always closely resembles its Black Friday sale, and the same is true for 2017. Here are a few official deals. We posted Dell’s Cyber Monday ad in the middle of November this year, and the format is similar to the Black Friday version. Doorbusters are available hourly on Monday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Cyber Monday 2017 is on Monday, November 27 this year, but the deals will be starting earlier.

Last year, some retailers, including Walmart, started their Cyber Week sales on Black Friday. Other stores started on the Saturday after Black Friday, which really turned into one long and extended shopping event. Here are a few important predictions for this year:Cyber Monday Spending Predictions — Based on our research, shoppers will spend $3.81 billion this year on Cyber Monday, which is up from $3.45 billion last year. Shoppers will also spend $1.24 billion on mobile this year, which is up from $1.07 billion last year.Cyber Monday TV Predictions — With the Black Friday and Cyber Monday merger complete, expect to see many of the same prices for TVs this year during Cyber Week that we are seeing on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. You should be able to get a 50-inch 4K TV for $200 and a 55-inch 4K TV for $250.Cyber Monday Video Game Predictions — Cyber Monday video game prices will be the same as Black Friday. Expect the Sony PlayStation 4 1TB console to be available for $199.99, which is a discount of $100. The Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB console should be available for $189.99, which is a discount of $90.

Use of non-GAAP measures In addition to using standard measures of performance and liquidity that are recognized in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we use additional measures of income excluding certain GAAP items (“non-GAAP measures”), such as Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS and measures of liquidity excluding certain GAAP items, such as Free Cash Flow. We believe these measures are useful for investors and management in evaluating business trends and performance each period. These measures are also used to manage our business and assess current period profitability, as well as to provide an appropriate basis to evaluate the effectiveness of our pricing strategies. Such measures are not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance or liquidity, as applicable. The definitions of each of these measures, further discussion of usefulness, and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are provided in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Information presented herein.

Specific factors that could cause future results to differ from those expressed by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, risks related to the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of or failure to complete the Acquisition or the agreements and transactions contemplated thereby; the failure of the Company to meet the conditions to closing of the Acquisition, including those conditions related to antitrust, works council and other regulatory approvals; the failure to obtain the financing necessary, at terms acceptable to the Company to fund the Acquisition; costs related to the proposed Acquisition and the impact of the substantial indebtedness to be incurred to finance the Acquisition; the ability of the post-Acquisition company to meet its financial and strategic goals, due to, among other things, its ability to grow and manage growth profitability, maintain relationships with customers and retain its key employees; the possibility that the post-Acquisition Company may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; the Company’s ability to successfully integrate the acquired businesses or generate expected cost savings and synergies from the Acquisition; the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and those factors discussed in the Company’s Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), in subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in other filings and furnishings made by the Company with the SEC from time to time.

Net sales in the fourth quarter decreased 3% versus prior year. Lower prices, mainly due to the pass through of lower raw material costs, resulted in a 10% sales decrease which was partially offset by higher volume across all segments with the exception of Feedstocks. Fourth quarter net income of $67 million was $61 million above prior year and fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $149 million was $90 million above prior year. The increase in earnings was due mainly to higher volume and margin, particularly within the Polystyrene and Base Plastics segments, as well as a favorable pre-tax net timing variance of $37 million. Net sales in the full year decreased 20% versus prior year from lower volume, due to COVID-19 impacts, and the pass through of lower raw material costs. Full-year net income of $8 million was $84 million below prior year and full-year Adjusted EBITDA of $299 million was $53 million below prior year. Lower earnings were due mainly to lower volume as a result of COVID-19 impacts as well as a $25 million unfavorable net timing variance. These impacts were partially offset by lower fixed costs as a result of restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives. Commenting on the Company’s fourth quarter and full-year performance, Frank Bozich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trinseo, said, “2020 was a challenging year but I am extremely proud of how our team responded. During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter we were able to meet all customer demand and we undertook cost and capital expenditure reduction initiatives to maximize liquidity. Demand recovery in end markets like appliances and automotive in the second half of the year, as well as commercial excellence initiatives, resulted in robust earnings in the third and fourth quarters. In fact, the fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA was our highest result in over two years and we ended the year in a very strong liquidity position. In addition, we announced a transformative acquisition in December and continued to improve our position to compete in an increasingly sustainability-focused economy. All of this could not have been accomplished without the hard work and dedication of our employees.” Fourth Quarter Results and Commentary by Business Segment Effective October 1, 2020, the Company realigned its reporting segments to reflect the new model under which the business will be managed, which will provide increased clarity within the Performance Plastics segment. Following this change, the number of reporting segments has increased from six to seven. Five of the segments remain unchanged: Latex Binders, Synthetic Rubber, Feedstocks, Polystyrene, and Americas Styrenics. Performance Plastics has been reorganized into two separate reporting segments: Engineered Materials and Base Plastics. The new Engineered Materials segment includes the Company’s compounds and blends products sold into applications such as consumer electronics and medical, as well as thermoplastic elastomer products sold into a variety of applications including footwear and automotive. The new Base Plastics segment contains the results of the remaining product lines, including ABS, SAN and polycarbonate, as well as compounds and blends for automotive and other applications. This new structure is aligned with the Company’s strategy to invest its efforts and resources into product offerings serving applications that tend to be less cyclical and offer significantly higher growth and margin potential. In 2019 and 2020, Engineered Materials delivered margins that were more than two times the average of products serving all applications within the Company’s former Performance Plastics segment. Prior period amounts herein have been recast to reflect this new segmentation.Latex Binders net sales of $200 million for the quarter decreased 9% versus prior year due to the pass through of lower raw materials. Volumes were slightly higher than prior year as sales increases to CASE, textile, board and specialty paper applications were mostly offset by sales decreases to graphical paper applications. Adjusted EBITDA of $22 million was flat to prior year as higher sales volume was offset by net timing. In comparison to prior year, volume to CASE applications increased 13% in the fourth quarter and 5% in the full year. 131.9 2019 $ 55.4 Feedstocks $ $ 10.2 ) 2.26 $ (85.4 193.0 Three Months Ended $ $ Feedstocks Year Ended 40.3 Total liabilities and shareholders’ equity (Unaudited) 151.3 698.9 Cash provided by operating activities $ (3.7 38.6 Total assets Corporate unallocated 56.4 Proceeds from exercise of option awards $ 457.4 Asset impairment charges or write-offs for the 2020 periods presented above relate to the impairment of the Company’s styrene monomer assets in Boehlen, Germany and polybutadiene rubber (nickel and neodymium-PBR) assets in Schkopau, Germany. 3,446.9 ————————————————— $ Note 2: Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Performance Measures to Net Income EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial performance measure, which is defined as income from continuing operations before interest expense, net; income tax provision; depreciation and amortization expense. We refer to EBITDA in making operating decisions because we believe it provides our management as well as our investors with meaningful information regarding the Company’s operational performance. We believe the use of EBITDA as a metric assists our board of directors, management and investors in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis. We also present Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measure, which we define as income from continuing operations before interest expense, net; income tax provision; depreciation and amortization expense; loss on extinguishment of long- term debt; asset impairment charges; gains or losses on the dispositions of businesses and assets; restructuring charges; acquisition related costs and benefits, and other items. In doing so, we are providing management, investors, and credit rating agencies with an indicator of our ongoing performance and business trends, removing the impact of transactions and events that we would not consider a part of our core operations. Lastly, we present Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS as additional performance measures. Adjusted Net Income is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA (defined beginning with net income, above), less interest expense, less the provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization, tax affected for various discrete items, as appropriate. Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income per weighted average diluted shares outstanding for a given period. We believe that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS provide transparent and useful information to management, investors, analysts and other stakeholders in evaluating and assessing our operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of certain transactions and activities that affect comparability and that are not considered part of our core operations. There are limitations to using the financial performance measures noted above. These performance measures are not intended to represent net income or other measures of financial performance. As such, they should not be used as alternatives to net income as indicators of operating performance. Other companies in our industry may define these performance measures differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use these or similarly-named financial measures that other companies may use, to compare the performance of those companies to our performance. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliations of these performance measures to our net income, which is determined in accordance with GAAP.

Free Cash Flow is defined as cash from operating activities, less capital expenditures. We believe that Free Cash Flow provides an indicator of the Company’s ongoing ability to generate cash through core operations, as it excludes the cash impacts of various financing transactions as well as cash flows from business combinations that are not considered organic in nature. We also believe that Free Cash Flow provides management and investors with useful analytical indicators of our ability to service our indebtedness, pay dividends (when declared), and meet our ongoing cash obligations. Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP, and therefore, should not be used as alternatives for that measure. Other companies in our industry may define Free Cash Flow differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use this or similarly-named financial measures that other companies may use, to compare the liquidity and cash generation of those companies to our own. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the following detail, which is determined in accordance with GAAP. 315.6 ————————————————— 1.71 $ Net Sales Engineered Materials Capital expenditures $ Three Months Ended Net income Feedstocks net sales of $36 million for the quarter were 47% below prior year due to lower styrene pricing as well as lower styrene-related sales volume.

Note that the accelerated depreciation charges incurred as part of both the Company’s corporate restructuring program and the upgrade and replacement of the Company’s compounding facility in Terneuzen, The Netherlands are included within the “Depreciation and amortization” caption above, and therefore are not included as a separate adjustment within this caption. 2019 136.0 $ ————————————————— 3,775.8 Net income 11.6 ) $ December 31, Weighted average shares – diluted (i) Free Cash Flow 38.3 2021 2.05 Net cash received for asset and business acquisitions (5.5 EPS – diluted Cash used in investing activities $ Americas Styrenics Adjusted EBITDA of $25 million for the quarter was $4 million above prior year due mainly to higher styrene volume and margin in North America, partially due to industry outages in the region. 2021 Full-Year OutlookFull-year 2021 net income of $167 million to $200 million and Adjusted EBITDA* of $400 million to $450 million, excluding any impact from net timing, the announced acquisition of Arkema’s MMA/PMMA business or the potential Synthetic Rubber divestiture.

North Reading Police Department(NORTH READING, Mass.) — In Massachusetts, police officers and firefighters went to extra lengths to save a choking puppy on Sunday.Megan Vitale and her friend rushed into the lobby of the North Reading Police Department with a 9-week-old Saint Bernard puppy, according to ABC affiliate WCVB-TV, where officers came out and examined the puppy.“When officers came around the corner, they found the puppy was not breathing, limp, and unresponsive,” officials told WCVB-TV.Officers began to use chest compressions on the puppy but it didn’t work. Shortly afterwards, members of the fire department joined to help.The fire officials used a special mask designed for animals to give the dog oxygen, which proved more successful, as the dog started breathing again, according to WCVB-TV.The dog, who was only in the possession of the owners for about a day, had choked on its lunch, according to WCVB-TV.The Saint Bernard has made a full recovery, WCVB-TV reports, and the puppy is back with its owners.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Home » News » Ex-M&P CEO Rollings invests in Viewber previous nextProducts & ServicesEx-M&P CEO Rollings invests in ViewberFurther funding round for young outsourced viewings business is due later this year.Nigel Lewis12th January 20170901 Views If you’ve been wondering what Peter Rollings was going to do after exiting Marsh Parsons last year as CEO, then an answer is now forthcoming.Rollings (pictured, below), who before helping grow Marsh & Parsons had a 20-year career at Foxtons including a seven-year stint as Managing Director, has now ploughed some of his considerable wealth into digital start-up Viewber.Established by former Douglas & Gordon executive director Ed Mead, Viewber offers an outsourced property viewings service to agents for both lettings and sales.”When I first read about Viewber I was intrigued and rang Ed asking to hear more about it,” says Rollings.“We had coffee and by the time the bill came I told him I wanted to be part of it and was prepared to invest in the business. It’s the first proptech I’ve seen which genuinely understands the way the [property] business works; they’ve looked at a problem within the industry and provided a viable solution.”Viewber launched last summer with backing from Mead and digital innovator Marcus de Ferranti but Rollings is the first external investor to plough funds into the business.“I’m delighted to have Peter involved as his experience and insight, as one of the most highly respected property professionals around, will prove invaluable,” says Ed Mead (pictured, right).“When I took him through the proposition, he just ‘got it’; he understood what we were doing, why and how and what a potential game changer Viewber is for so many property related businesses.“I’m really looking forward to working with him as we enter the next phase of development.”Viewber is at a relatively early stage although Mead says it has several customers, and officially launched in September last year, although it’s to go fully digital in March this year. Mead says plans for a second round of funding later this year are already underway.Peter Rollings outsourced viewings Ed Mead Viewber January 12, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
