Share Apax close to buying ISS for up to $8.5bn KCS-content whatsapp Wednesday 8 December 2010 9:17 pm LONDON-based private equity group Apax Partners has won exclusive talks to buy cleaning giant ISS for up to $8.5bn (£5.3bn), sources close to the companies confirmed yesterday, in what could be the biggest buyout in Europe since the credit crisis. Apax has several months to thrash out a deal with current owners Goldman Sachs and Swedish buyout company EQT, people close to the negotiations told City A.M.Danish firm ISS is still pushing ahead with plans for an IPO early next year, with meetings between senior staff scheduled for next week, one source said yesterday, heaping pressure on Apax to table a suitable offer quickly. “The strategic review is ongoing. We are looking at all the possibilities,” said an ISS spokesperson yesterday, who declined to comment further.ISS hired Goldman, Rothschild and Morgan Stanley to help consider a flotation or sale in August, following its failed attempt to float three years ago as the credit crisis hit. Apax is currently bidding alone, and is expected to ask investors and existing debt providers including Citigroup to help fund the deal due to its investment limit of around $1bn. However, a source close to the company said yesterday that the firm had not yet approached potential backers. Rival bidding groups including CVC Capital and Apollo, and Bain Capital, Nordic Capital, Clayton Dubilier & Rice and Blackstone have reportedly been rejected. ISS, which was taken off the Danish stock exchange by Goldman and EQT for in 2005, has cleaning contracts with the NHS, Citigroup and UK embassies and produced turnover of DK18.5bn (£2.1bn) in the latest quarter. It employs around 45,000 people in the UK, which is its second-largest market. Apax, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs declined to comment, while CVC Capital and Citi could not be reached. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This NextFresh Fruit Sushi: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofA Once in 17 Years Cicada Event in Princeton, New JerseyFamily Proof Tags: NULL

The former’s €44m addition of Atemi Group to its business at the start of the quarter brought an immediate boost and saw it eclipse Catena Media to become market leader during the fourth quarter. By the final quarter of last year the affiliate sector seemed to have put the pandemic firmly in its rearview mirror. With the exception of Acroud, revenue and EBITDA improved on a year-on-year basis for all of the operators covered in the Affiliate Monitor.

Email Address 1st April 2021 | By contenteditor Marketing & affiliates At the other end of the leaderboard, long-time laggard Acroud is hoping to turn things around via M&A. The company has been on something of an acquisition spree since the beginning of this year and has indicated there is more to come. And after a two-year lull in any significant consolidation activity, Catena Media looks set to throw its hat back into the ring, stating during its fourth quarter conference call that M&A is back on the table. Whether or not it can regain its market-leading position using the strategy that helped get it there in the first place remains to be seen. However, much of this growth had been bought, with the two top-performing affiliates in terms of revenue growth – Better Collective and Raketech – having made significant acquisitions last year.

Still looking for cheap shares? This FTSE 250 stock is my top pick Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Although FTSE 250 shares have managed to stage a recovery from recent lows, a number of shares are still drastically underpriced. I believe one such share is the UK’s leading brick maker, Ibstock (LSE: IBST). The Ibstock share price is currently 40% lower than its high in February. This is due to the loss of profits caused by the coronavirus lockdown. But I recently wrote about the strong long-term prospects of the construction industry, and I think that Ibstock shares will profit from this. The main reasons for my optimism about this FTSE 250 stock are its strong balance sheet, promising future, and an improvement in fortunes for the construction industry.A leading FTSE 250 stockAs the UK’s largest brick manufacturer, Ibstock is in a very strong position to benefit from the demand for construction. While lockdown has lowered this demand, I believe this is a short-term problem. In fact, the increasing UK population will ensure that demand for new homes is a major priority for the government. The construction sector has also been one of the first to restart and it has seen higher levels of demand in recent weeks. Ibstock is well-positioned to gain from this demand because around 80% of new homes use clay bricks in construction. Forty-one manufacturing locations and the largest clay reserves in the UK has also cemented Ibstock as a market leader. This provides the FTSE 250 stock with an advantage over other firms in the construction industry.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…An excellent balance sheetAs a cyclical business, Ibstock is very exposed to downturns in the overall construction industry. Fortunately, a strong balance sheet should help mitigate the impacts. The FTSE 250 firm has managed to keep debt levels low, while cash flow has remained high. Prudence in cancelling its dividend has also helped preserve cash. The company should therefore have sufficient liquidity to survive the crisis, while access to a revolving credit facility of approximately £215m could also be very useful. In terms of the dividend, I believe that this is a short-term loss. With a dividend that should yield around 5.5% in the future, this makes Ibstock a very attractive FTSE 250 stock.A positive future While the pandemic may hinder growth in the near term, I still believe the long-term future of Ibstock looks very bright. Its strong balance sheet will give it the capacity to invest in the company. For example, rising profits from the concrete area of the business will give Ibstock another dimension. The recent acquisition of Longley Concrete has aided these profits. There are also plans to build a new £45m brick factory by 2022, which should boost brick production by 80m units. This gives me hope that Ibstock will thrive in the long term and the share price will grow significantly from its current price. I therefore rate this FTSE 250 stock as a long-term buy.

Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Photographs, taken by sex trade workers, are sold by silent auction at The Exposure Project fundraising event at The Church of the Holy Trinity, Trinity Square on April 19 in Toronto, Canada. The Project is the creation of Carly Kalish, a social worker at All Saints Sherbourne Community Centre. Photo/Michael Hudson[The Anglican Journal] A photography project to empower women who work in the sex trade has raised about $38,000 for the drop-in program at All Saints Church–Community Center in downtown Toronto, where the project began.Carly Kalish, a full-time social worker hired by the church, dreamed up the idea of giving 10 women disposable cameras and photography lessons as a way to tell their stories. The result was The Exposure Project, an exhibition of 33 images at Holy Trinity Church in downtown Toronto. The exhibition ended in a fundraiser on April 19 which attracted a sold-out crowd of 250 people. Most of the photos, which were professionally framed, sold for $75 to $200 each; gala ticket sales and donations further boosted the bottom line.While the photographers did not attend the gala themselves, they did bring partners and friends to a private viewing beforehand. “It was just breathtaking to see them see their own work,” says Kalish. “They were so proud of themselves.”Importantly, the experience helped the women feel more comfortable about coming to All Saints for support — with housing, with experiencing violence or just to talk. “To me, that’s the success of the project,” says Kalish. All Saints will do the project again next year, she adds. In addition, a 2013 calendar with The Exposure Project photos is under consideration.Now Kalish is dreaming of a fashion show, working with women from the drop-in center as well as local designers. A proponent of art therapy, Kalish envisions a sewing group at the drop-in center that will begin by making fashion accessories such as jewelry and headbands.— Leigh Anne Williams is a staff writer for The Anglican Journal, publication of the Anglican Church of Canada.

Instead, it should be “a response to the biblical call to make disciples to honor and glorify God, as Christians live out their faith in everyday life as faithful followers of Jesus Christ, their Lord and Master,” a major new report published by the Anglican Communion says.Addressing those problems would, however, be “by products” of any period of focused intentional discipleship, which would also have “the potential to catalyze renewal and transformation in the Anglican Communion,” the report says.The report, Intentional Discipleship and Disciple-Making – An Anglican Guide for Christian Life and Formation, has been published for members of the Anglican Consultative Council as they prepare to meet in Lusaka beginning next week. But, says the Rev. Canon John Kafwanka, the director for mission at the Anglican Communion Office, “this book is a text for everyone and should be accessible to the laity, ordinands, clergy, bishops, theologians and young people” throughout the Communion.The 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-16) takes place in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka, Zambia, from April 8 until April 19. ACC-16 will bring together lay and ordained representatives from across the Anglican Communion “to facilitate the co-operative work of the churches of the Anglican Communion, exchange information between the provinces and churches, and help to co-ordinate common action.”Its theme, “Intentional Discipleship in a World of differences”, was chosen by the Standing Committee after discussing a paper on discipleship which formed the basis of the new report, described by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby as the “best document I have read on the subject.”The report’s introduction explains that a Church Growth Initiative (now known as Anglican Witness: Evangelism and Church Growth Initiative of the Anglican Communion) was established following concerns expressed by the Lambeth Conference in 2008 and subsequent discussions at ACC-14 in Jamaica in 2009. The initiative was created to “spearhead research, thinking, and action within the Communion” on mission and discipleship.The Archbishop of South East Asia, the Most Rev. Moon Hing, Bishop of West Malaysia, describes the biblical imperative to discipleship in the report’s foreword: “‘Follow me.’ These two simple words of invitation and command stand at the head of every relationship with Jesus, the Son of God, whether spoken on a Galilean lake shore, on the streets of Lusaka, or in a hospital in Chicago,” Archbishop Hing said. “Like every child responding to the outstretched hand of a parent, Simon and Andrew, Mary and Salome, and millions of Christians through two millennia have accepted that simple invitation in faith and often with minimal understanding of the life-transforming decision they have taken.”He describes a decision to follow Christ as “simply the most challenging, the most beautiful, the most costly, the most rewarding journey we could ever choose to begin.”The archbishop goes on to explain that reconciliation “becomes a pressing priority” for Christians as they are drawn deeper into the body of Christ. “Humanity shares the brokenness and pain of our world, and this needs to be brought to God, to be offered at the cross – to find reconciliation, wholeness, and life in the shattered life of God. As Paul reminds us, the heart of our discipleship is not only to ‘be reconciled’ with God but also to exercise a ‘ministry of reconciliation’ (2 Cor 5.11–21).“That ministry is to be exercised within the church, in the wider community, and in our relationship with the whole created order. In many ways this life of reconciliation is the most public aspect of our Christian discipleship and at the same time deeply enmeshed with our witness, or evangelism.“As a communion we are profoundly in need of reconciliation and we find ourselves in a world equally riven by fear, division, and brokenness. It is for this reason that, as never before, we need to accept Jesus’ invitation to an apostleship, a discipleship, of the whole of our lives. A narrow, pietistic attachment to Jesus, whether individualistic or ecclesial, was never what God intended and will not serve us well today.“Following Jesus will and must change every aspect of our being. At the core will be our reconciliation with God, but this can never be complete until we are at peace with ourselves, in vital communion with the whole Body of Christ, in a renewed relationship with the whole human family, and discovering a new harmony with creation as a whole. Wrestling with environmental issues, with peace-building and peace-keeping, with the complexities of human relationships, with truth, justice, and loving, and with the care of our family and ourselves –these are all key concerns for those who accept the invitation of Jesus to ‘follow’.”To purchase or download copies of Intentional Discipleship and Disciple-Making – An Anglican Guide for Christian Life and Formation see the links at the foot of this articleKafwanka described the report as “a key resource” for next month’s meeting of the ACC, but added that “the ACC members will bring their own diverse but rich experience on how their faith is lived out and expressed as Christ’s ambassadors, how and what resources they have available in equipping themselves and their gathering communities in being the salt and light of world, and in proclaiming Christ as the hope of the world in these challenging times.”He added: “My earnest hope is that ACC members will have a passionate discussion on this important theme and point to some future direction of how a communion committed on intentionally being disciples and making disciples of Jesus would do more in transforming communities with the love and the Gospel of Christ, and thereby bringing many more to love and follow Jesus Christ as his disciples.”He said: “My hope and prayer is that, for some people, this book will be a challenging and welcome reminder to go back to the basics of where we should be a body of Christ and as individual Christians, and for others the book will be an inspiration and important companion on their journey of discipleship, and to others to discover that this so commonly used term, discipleship, is in fact the bedrock of our existence as followers of Jesus.”Explaining the use of the word “intentional” to describe a type of discipleship, he said that: “Anglicans/Episcopalians all over the world are witnessing to Christ’s reconciling love in all sorts of ways as a sign of their discipleship. But there is also a renewed realization among many people that there is need to be more intentional and invest in ways of resourcing and equipping ourselves and those who join as new members to be lifelong disciples of Jesus in every sphere of our daily life.”He said that having a Christian faith should “make a difference in ways Christians relate to one another and to the environment around them, including the choices they make [as they] love the world and respond to the various challenges [they face].“In sense, there is already a movement of Anglicans/Episcopalians – and other Christians for that matter – who are committed to Christian discipleship. This ‘emerging’ and growing movement among Anglicans/Episcopalians in many dioceses is coming out of a renewed appreciation that as Christians, we are here for an important purpose, to honor God and our Lord Jesus Christ by the way leave our life, as Christ’s ambassadors; and that the need to focus on discipleship is the basic call to the Church and to all the baptized, and one which has the potential to make all the difference in a troubled but God’s world.“So, I do pray that ACC will send out such rallying messages and call the Communion to intentional following and intentional equipping of all baptized Anglicans/Episcopalians to love Jesus and love the world. That is the ‘renewed discipleship movement’ I pray and hope for.“This ACC has the potential to be a ‘springboard’ for a ‘discipleship movement’, which [Presiding] Bishop Michael Curry [of the Episcopal Church in America] often calls the Jesus Movement.”The report, Intentional Discipleship and Disciple-Making – An Anglican Guide for Christian Life and Formation, can be purchased from the Anglican Communion Shop (available shortly), priced £6.50 GBP plus postage and packing; or downloaded as a PDF (148 pages) from the ACC-16 webpage.

News Help by sharing this information VenezuelaAmericas Organisation New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets RSF_en August 25, 2020 Find out more The arrests of two well-known opponents of President Hugo Chávez for statements made in public, together with the government’s recently declared intention of regulating the Internet, have raised serious concerns about the future of free speech in Venezuela.Given the government’s tendency to treat any criticism or verbal attack as an act of “conspiracy against the state,” one wonders whether Venezuelans are still allowed to say anything at all about their country and their president.The first to be arrested was former Zulia state governor Oswaldo Álvarez Paz, who said during an 8 March interview on Globovisión, a privately-owned TV station critical of the authorities, that “Venezuela has become a drug-trafficking hub.” He has been held since 22 March and is facing two to 16 years in prison on charges of inciting crime, conspiracy and spreading false information.The second was Globovisión owner Guillermo Zuloaga, who criticised the government at the Inter-American Press Association’s annual meeting on the nearby island of Aruba on 21 March, condemning “the lack of free expression when a government uses its force to repress and close media, when there are more than 2,000 ‘cadenas’ and when the president uses his authority to manipulate public opinion”. Arrested on 25 March and granted a provisional release the same day, subject to his not leaving the country, Zuloaga is facing six to 30 months in prison on a charge of insulting the president (the penalty being increased by a third when the insult is voiced in public) and another two to five years in prison for “inciting collective panic by means of false information through the press.”The charges brought against Álvarez are doubly unfounded. How on earth could his comment be regarded as “inciting crime” or “conspiracy”? There are also absolutely no grounds for accusing Zuloaga of “inciting collective panic.” The charge of insulting the president – a monarchic heritage that has been abandoned or repealed in most democratic countries – results in an almost automatic conviction. It is also questionable whether Venezuela’s courts have jurisdiction over Zuloaga’s case as his comments were made in Aruba, a separate country. The prosecution should have been brought before an Aruban court.Zuloaga, who has other prosecutions pending, has a fraught past. Along with other media owners, he supported an attempted coup d’état against Chávez in April 2002 but was never tried in connection with his actions at the time although arguably they could have constituted grounds for a conspiracy charge. “Bombard the network”The government is meanwhile again using political score-settling as grounds for tightening its grip on the media at time when it is in difficulty and facing discontent. President Chávez now wants government controls to be extended to the Internet and is about to launch his own blog.A president has a right to start a blog but does he have to justify his initiative by vowing to “bombard the network”? A president is supposed to guarantee civil peace, but Chávez’s bellicose vocabulary sounds like the “incitement” that he has accused his foes of practising.The pledge of an Internet offensive was made in response to the posting of false information on the Noticierodigital website’s forum section. The information, which was quickly withdrawn, was posted by visitors to the site, not by the site’s staff, whose good faith has never been in question.There are no grounds for the heralded controls over the Internet, which reflect the government’s pointless and dangerous desire to establish its complete ascendency over the media. It is impossible to completely prevent false news and information from being disseminated. And what are the definitive criteria of truth anyway?
