Wednesday 9 February 2011 8:41 pm Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsapp Share ALARMED investors wiped out half of outsourcing firm Xchanging’s market value yesterday after the firm warned on its profits, scrapped its dividend and announced that its chief executive had left. Xchanging, which sponsors the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, also said it will take a £100m impairment charge linked to the loss of goodwill from its disastrous takeover of India’s Cambridge Solutions in 2008. Chief financial officer Ken Lever, who is acting chief executive following the sudden departure of founder David Andrews, said 2011 operating profit will be lower than £55.5m, the bottom end of analyst estimates. Contract delays and cancellations will hit the firm’s bottom line, Xchanging said in a statement, and it will reveal more details of a cost-cutting drive to offset the losses in its results statement on 1 March. A spokesperson said the firm did not plan to make any job cuts.“We mustn’t get carried away here,” said Lever during an analyst conference call. “We have a very strong profitable and cash-generating business in the UK … I wouldn’t go away from here thinking there are no silver linings.” Outgoing chief Andrews, who founded Xchanging in 1999, will remain an adviser to chairman Nigel Rich. Andrews lost around £11.3m yesterday as his 19.8m shares in Xchanging crashed to less than half their previous value. The stock closed at 56.5p yesterday – a loss of 52 per cent, and less than a quarter of its 12-month high of 222p. Analysts rushed to cut their estimates for 2011. Mike Murphy from Numis moved from “buy” to “sell”, adding in a note: “The CEO has, rightly in our opinion, fallen on his sword…. [I]t is possible everything, bar the proverbial kitchen sink, has been thrown into the 2011 numbers. “However, it is difficult to see relations being repaired with the market until the group delivers on expectations.”Profit warning for 2011Xchanging’s 2011 profit will be less than the most bearish forecasts of £55.5m, despite lowering forecasts in late 2010.£100m goodwill hitXchanging bought Bangalore-based IT firm Cambridge Solutions for £83m, but has written down £100m from loss of goodwill. Dividend scrappedXchanging paid a dividend of 2.75p per share last April, but investors will get nothing for the 2010 financial year.Chief executive leavesFounder and CEO David Andrews has left his post without warning after 12 years.Investors take a batteringXchanging’s biggest shareholders include hedge fund Breeden (which also lost out during the demise of housing repair firm Connaught), former Cambridge Solutions owner Scandent, and several board members including Andrews himself. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeCrafthoughtThis Is What’s Going To Happen In 2021 – Nostradamus Predicted It Centuries AgoCrafthoughtNoteableyFaith Hill’s Daughter Is Probably The Most Stunning EverNoteableymoneywise.comThe Most Neglected College Football Stadiums In The U.S.moneywise.comAdventure CrunchCheck Out These Strange Looking MotorhomesAdventure CrunchDidUKnowUnsold 2018 SUVs Now Almost Being Given Away: See PricesDidUKnowMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesReporter center[Photos] Gretchen Carlson And Her Partner Are Still TogetherReporter centerMold Removal | Search AdsBathroom Mold Removal Tips That Might Surprise Most AmericansMold Removal | Search AdsPets DetectiveA Coast Guard Spotted Movement On A Remote Island, Then Looked CloserPets Detective Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Xchanging tanks on torrent of bad news

Paul Summers | Thursday, 21st May, 2020 | More on: BEG FRP The stock market may have rebounded strongly from March’s coronavirus-related crash, but finding anyone bullish on the UK economy right now is quite a task. Even chancellor Rishi Sunak now believes a significant recession is likely.Is there any way for Foolish investors to come out on top? I think so. Today, I’m taking a closer look at two companies that could offer great protection from the looming fallout.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…Recession-proofSmall-cap Begbies Traynor (LSE: BEG) is a company I’ve been positive on for quite some time. The £140m-cap is a property services consultant and insolvency specialist — the latter a service that, sadly, looks likely to experience greater demand as the recession hits. Indeed, today’s trading update was indicative of what’s likely to come.Revenue for the financial year to the end of April is now expected to be around £70m — up from just over £60m in 2018/19.Profits at its business recovery and financial advisory division were a highlight. They grew roughly 30% over the year as more firms faced insolvency, even before the pandemic struck. Recent acquisitions and higher average fee levels also provided a boost.All told, adjusted pre-tax profit is likely to come in at £9.2m, up from £7m in 2019. The firm did say, however, this included a £600,000 hit after several of its property service lines were hit by the lockdown. Positive outlookBegbies was trading 3% lower this morning, suggesting some traders were banking profits. The stock was, after all, up a stonking 77% since 23 March.Today’s move aside, I still think the company could be a rare winner in the recession. While the full impact of the coronavirus is unknown, Begbies is expecting “progressive increases in the number of insolvencies” as we move through 2020. This could be compounded, of course, by Brexit.In addition to this ‘positive’ outlook, Begbies finances look increasingly sound. Net debt stood at £2.8m at the end of April, down significantly from £6m in 2019. The firm had £7.2m in cash last month and undrawn borrowing facilities of £15m.There’s good news for income seekers too. Having already paid its interim dividend this month, Begbies said it was intending to confirm a final dividend in July. Trading on 16 times forecast earnings before markets opened, the stock isn’t screamingly cheap. It could, however, be a great counter-cyclical, recession-beating pick.Profits “ahead of expectations”Begbies isn’t the only option for investors in this space. New-stock-on-the-block FRP Advisory (LSE: FRP) could be a great alternative. Larger than its peer Begbies, the company also supports businesses facing insolvency. Unsurprisingly, demand for its services has been just as good. In its recent update, FRP said it had “traded strongly” in the second half of its financial year. Revenue will likely to come in at £31.8m with profits “ahead of the Board’s expectations.” For the full 12 months, £63.2m of revenue has been predicted — a rise of 16.4% on the previous 12 months. Like Begbies, FRP looks financially sound (and you would hope so!). Like Begbies, the company also expects to pay a final dividend. Having only listed in March, the minnow looks to be flying under analyst radars. I expect this to change markedly in the coming months as the recession takes hold. I think those buying this defensive stock now could see great returns in time.

News News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU May 10, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Second attack on a sports journalist in Athens Organisation News April 29, 2021 Find out more GreeceEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Greece RSF_en News to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more GreeceEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts The Greek police must show journalists can trust it with their protection after one was murdered and another is threatened Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders expressed dismay at a violent assault on sports journalist Kostas Nikolakopoulos, apparently by football hooligans, just after he finished broadcasting on Sport FM radio in Athens on 7 May.Four hooded men armed with iron bars and knuckledusters rained blows onto the journalist in front of his wife and two young daughters as he was returning home. They only stopped once he was lying on the ground. His wife took him to Nikea Hospital close to the scene of the attack. Nikolakopoulos, who also works for dailies Fos ton Sport and Adesmeftos Typos, was left with head, rib and hand injuries.”It is essential that those who carried out this attack should be quickly identified and taken before a court,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation. “A climate of impunity, which would be damaging to press freedom, should not be allowed to take hold. Sports journalists should be able to express themselves without being intimidated or attacked by supporters,” it said.”This attack was carried out by football hooligans”, the 41-year old journalist said as he left hospital 48 hours later. “I have been receiving veiled threats for three months. A week before the attack a man phoned my home and kept asking for my address so he could deliver a package. But after checking, no package was ever sent to me”, he told Reporters Without Borders. He will be out of action for two weeks.Police say the assailants are Greek football supporters. They were checking a recording of the broadcast Nikolakopoulos had just finished. He covers sports events linked to Olympiakos football club and its supporters.It is the second violent assault on a sports journalist in Athens in recent months. On 18 October 2004, Philippos Syrigos, sports editor of the daily Eleftherotypia, who specialises in revelations within the sports world, was beaten up by thugs wearing motorcycle helmets and armed with knives. He had just left the offices of Sport FM in Athens’ Kallithéa district. Greece’s new guidelines for policing protests threaten press freedom February 2, 2021 Find out more
