Matomy Media Group share price rises as $17m MobFox deal to double down on mobile revealed

first_imgIsrael’s Matomy Media Group, of which French ad giant Publicis took a 20 per cent stake in earlier this month, will buy Austrian mobile-advertising specialist MobFox for $17.6m (£10.9m) in a move to boost its mobile offering.The deal, which City A.M. understands is due to close in the next few days, is comprised of $10.1m in cash and $7.5m in newly issued shares.MobFox will boost Matomy’s revenue from mobile to 20 per cent this year, and enable it to set a goal of 50 per cent of revenue from mobile activity in less than five years.“We believe mobile should be one of our main growth engines and of course we have been investing organically in order to grow our mobile presence,” Matomy chief executive Ofer Druker told City A.M. “Through this acquisition, we enable many more tools that will help us to grow our presence on mobile and to give our publishers and advertisers more robust tools to manage their campaigns or to monetise their traffic.”MobFox is on track to have a revenue run-rate of between $15m and $17m for 2014, and brings Matomy offices in Vienna, San Francisco, Paris and London – which will become Mat­omy’s UK branch office.“The resources and support of Matomy will help MobFox build upon our strategy of delivering innovative mobile programmatic advertising and monetisation technology and will drive further success for our customers,” said MobFox founder and chief executive Julian Zehetmayr. Matomy’s shares rose 2.2 per cent to 232.50p on the news yesterday.

European Court of Justice rules states can refuse welfare to immigrants but how many “benefits tourists” are there really?

Find Out Now!Warped SpeedEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirror Show Comments ▼ The European Court of Justice has ruled member states are free to exclude EU citizens from other nations who move to their country for the sole purpose of claiming benefits.The news was music to the ears of those in Downing Street, who have been seeking to crack down on so-called benefits tourism. So long as Britain is a member of the EU, the Prime Minister cannot wall off the UK from EU migrants – but the court’s ruling could be a route to walling off  Britain’s welfare state. David Cameron was recently told by northern European leaders in no uncertain terms that free movement is an unalterable part of EU membership. However, he did elicit sympathy from Norway’s PM, who said it was important to look at the regulation surrounding welfare payments.The debate has become an increasingly depressing one for supporters of free movement, with the UK’s major parties seemingly in an arms race in their anti-immigration rhetoricIt is consistent for advocates of open immigration to support cutbacks in welfare for immigrants. Indeed, economist Milton Friedman warned “you can`t have free immigration and a welfare state”, before going on to advocate for a reduction in the welfare state and praising immigration.Although looking at the figures, it’s likely the court’s ruling will make little difference to public finances or the welfare roles either way. EU migrants are mostly young and looking to work, so very few claim Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) or other working-age benefits. Of the 1.1m people claiming JSA just 38,580 come from the EU.Fourteen per cent of working age Brits in the UK claim at least one in work benefit compared to seven per cent of non-UK nationals. EU immigrants have also proved that they contribute far more to the system than they take out, helping to subsidise the UK’s host of generous welfare programmes.Last week, researchers at University College London released a report showing that between 1995 and 2011, immigrants from the EU paid £4.4bn more in tax than they took out in services.EU and non-EU migrants are a vital part of the labour force, together making up 26 per cent of NHS doctors, 28 per cent of food preparation and hospitality workers and 22 per cent of natural and social science professionals. As an added bonus, immigrants also improve our productivity, helping to boost UK wages. In 2013, Cinzia Rienzo at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research found that a one per cent increase in the immigrant share in the labour force is associated with an increase in labour productivity of between 0.06 and 0.07 per cent.So while the European Court of Justice may have delivered a verdict that will allow David Cameron to boost his tough rhetoric on immigration, today’s ruling is not going to lead to a massive cut in the UK’s budget deficit and it remains the case EU migrants were not in any way a net drain on the public finances even with working age benefits. whatsappcenter_img whatsapp Tags: UK immigration Share More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com European Court of Justice rules states can refuse welfare to immigrants but how many “benefits tourists” are there really? last_img read more

The best player in Premier League history? The stats suggest Arsenal icon Thierry Henry

The Frenchman undoubtedly left his mark on the English top-flight. Yet even more impressive than the many moments of magic was Henry’s unrelenting excellence. The dominance of the Premier League’s scoring and assisting charts that very few players have ever come close to matching. Henry is not the highest scorer in the division’s history. That particular accolade belongs to Alan Shearer, who scored 260 goals in the division. Andy Cole and Wayne Rooney have also scored more than the Arsenal icon’s total of 175. Yet all of those players featured in considerably more games than Henry, who has the highest goals-per-game ratio of those elite Premier League players who have scored over 100 times. Across his two spells in North London, Henry scored an average of 0.68 goals per game, with 175 goals in 258 appearances. Not only has no other player matched Henry’s scoring rate in their career, but most struggled to keep up with him for a single season. Henry topped the league’s goal-scoring charts on four different seasons – a record.  Of course, as anyone who has seen Henry play knows, there was so much more to his game than simply finding the back of the net. Henry was a defining element in the what was arguably the Premier League’s greatest team – the Arsenal invincibles of 2003/2004. The record-breaking side was so effective thanks to its all for one and one for all attitude. Each and every player performing for everybody else – Henry was no different, as demonstrated by the enormous number of goals he created for others. The man who made number 14 cool for an entire generation picked up 80 assists during his time in the Premier League. Again, there are number of players with a higher total (Cesc Fabregas, Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and Ryan Giggs) but only one with a better ratio to number of games played (from players with over 50). On average Henry made 0.31 assists-per-game, only Fabregas averages better with 0.36. During the 2002/2003 season, the Frenchman made a whopping 23 assists – still the highest total since the league’s inception.  Of course, there were those qualities that can’t be counted or placed in a chart. Henry’s cool, attitude, imagination and leadership. His ‘va-va-voom’.  And some may also argue that even with an inferior goals-per-game ratio, Alan Shearer’s record is more impressive when you consider the teams he played in. Henry had Robert Pires and Cesc Fabregas. Shearer had Laurent Robert and Rob Lee.  There’s also the fact that judging a player solely on attacking qualities discounts all those goalkeepers and defenders who never got as much adulation from the crowd. So is Henry the greatest player in Premier League history? Perhaps that will always be up for debate.  What’s certain is that for Arsenal fans, he will always be The King. whatsapplast_img read more

The managing directors of the two firms, Jon Thoday and Jimmy Mulville, are reportedly offering £100m for the channel and have written to the BBC Trust about a proposed deal.But a BBC spokesperson said: “BBC Three is not for sale because it’s not closing. The proposal to move it online is part of a bold move to reinvent the BBC’s offer for young people.”BBC Three controller Damian Kavanagh also took to the BBC blog to answer questions and clarify the future of the channel as the BBC Trust reviews its future. In a post titled “Ten things you should know about the new BBC”, Kavanagh reiterated the stance in point one.Thoday and Mulville have promised to increase the channel’s £80m budget, while the BBC plans to slash it by more than half to just £30m and move it to an online-only channel.Hat Trick said: “Under the new ownership, BBC Three would continue to broadcast on all digital platforms, all current contracts would be honoured and the channel’s programme budget would be increased from £81m to £100m a year. Under the BBC’s plans to take the channel online, that budget is to be cut to £30m a year”“All original commissions would be made by UK companies and the channel would continue to be aimed at a young and ethnically diverse audience,” the production company added.

Eyesore or beauty? The 14 postwar office blocks listed by English Heritage

first_imgWhether you’re a fan or take an altogether more “Prince Charles” attitude to post-war architecture, office buildings provide some of the finest examples of it.And turns out English Heritage thinks it’s worth preserving: the organisation has listed 14 of the UK’s best-loved (or most-hated) post-war offices. According to English Heritage, the buildings – which include the glass-and-steel One Finsbury Avenue, and the concrete offices of private bank Brown Shipley – “have ensured that this area of architectural achievement is recognised for future generations”.Here are the offices included – plus, at the bottom, those consigned to carbuncle obscurity.1. Brown Shipley, MoorgateConstruction on the office, designed by Fitzroy Robinson & Partners, began in 19732. 30 Cannon Street, LondonThis space-age building, formerly the headquarters of Credit Lyonnais, was built in 1974, designed by Winney, Son & Austen Hall.3. 1 Finsbury Avenue, City of LondonDesigned by Arup Associates, this UBS office was completed in 1984.4. Space House, KingswayNow known as the rather less exciting-sounding Civil Aviation Authority House, this brutalist edifice was designed by Richard Seifert & Partners, and completed in 19685. Gateway House, BasingstokeThey don’t call it “Amazingstoke” for nothing: later renamed Mountbatten House, this design, by Arup Associates, was completed in 1976. Its roof garden has also been Grade II listed. 6. IBM Pilot head office, CoshamA classic example of 1970s architecture, this office was designed by Foster Associates, and completed in 1971.7. Gun Wharf, ChathamNever one to shy away from controversial architecture, Lloyd’s of London was the original occupier for Gun Wharf, which was designed by Arup Associated and finished in 1978. These days, it’s home to Medway Council.8. Ryder and Yates, NewcastleNot one for opponents of concrete, the former offices of architects  Ryder and Yates, which also designed the building, was completed in 1965.9. MEA House, Newcastle Another Ryder and Yates classic, the Queen opened this office block in 1974. Last year, it celebrated its 40th anniversary.10. Bank House, King StreetDesigned by the Building Design Partnership in 1969, Bank House is now home to Axa and law firm Walker Morris.11. Midland Bank, LiverpoolWith its futuristic pyramid-shaped windows, Bradshaw, Rowse & Harker’s design became the subject of fierce debate when it opened in 1971.12. St James’ House, BirminghamWith its panelled walls, this design, by John Madin, is an example of early post-war offices. It was completed in 1957.13. Alpha Tower, BirminghamOnce home to Birmingham City Council, Brum’s tallest office building was designed by Richard Seifert & Partners, and completed in 1972.14. The Pavilions, BristolOnce home to the Central Electricity Generating Board, this squat building was designed by Arup Associates, finished in 1978.And those that missed out on listed status…Tower 42 (Natwest Tower), London, Richard Seifert & Partners, 1973-81Bush Lane House, 80 Cannon Street, London, Arup Associates, 1972-76150 Leadenhall Street & 6-8 Bishopsgate, London, GMW Partnership, 1974-78 & 1977-81Gateway Two, Belvedere House, Basingstoke, Arup Associates, 1981-82PA Technology and Science Centre, Melbourn, Hertfordshire, Piano & Rogers, 1974-75, 1982-84Newspaper House, Oxford, Arup Associates, 1969-71Neville House, Birmingham, John Madin, 1975-76Natwest, Colmore Road, Birmingham, John Madin, 1969 Wednesday 28 January 2015 5:38 am whatsapp Eyesore or beauty?

Shoppers prefer firms that train up their staff

first_imgCONSUMERS are willing to pay more for goods and services from business that employ apprentices, new research shows today.The research from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) reveals 25 per cent of consumers would be more likely to pay more for goods and services offered by businesses employing apprentices. The most popular services people said they would pay a premium on were a plumbers’ visit or a haircut.Customers said they would be prepared to pay between 1.2 per cent and two per cent extra as a price premium for firms hiring apprentices.  The benefit to an employer of hiring an apprentice is the value of the economic output produced by an apprentice, plus any subsidies received, less wage and training costs.  According the CEBR’s research, this equates to an average of £1,670 per annum for the average apprentice in England but can rise as high as £13,824 and £9,721 for team leadership and management, and business administration apprentices respectively.  “In launching National Apprenticeship Week we are celebrating the 2.1 million apprenticeship starts since 2010 and the positive impact they are having on businesses around the country,” said business secretary Vince Cable.“The benefits of apprenticeships are clear – they make a vital contribution to the economy, boost business productivity and give people the skills they need to get on in the world of work. As this research shows, there has been an important shift in the attitudes towards apprenticeships with businesses, consumers, and young people recognising the significant opportunities they can offer.”Scott Corfe, co-author of the report The Benefits of Apprenticeships to Businesses, said: “Not only do apprentices contribute to the productivity of a company from day one, but consumers are more likely to switch to brands and firms that employ apprentices.” Shoppers prefer firms that train up their staff Monday 9 March 2015 12:26 am More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com Share Show Comments ▼center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealth Gut BoostRandy Jackson: This 3 Minute Routine Transformed My HealthHealth Gut BoostMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comFinancial 10See The Wife Of The World’s Richest BillionairesFinancial 10Discovery29+ Fascinating U.S. Navy WarshipsDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteabley whatsapp Express KCS Tags: NULLlast_img read more

However, no substantial policy agreements were made with Greece still facing the prospect of running out of cash if it is unable to propose a suitable list of reforms to the Eurogroup – the group of Eurozone finance officials.“There was an appetite for cooperation. We have differences on some issues but there is a willingness to work together,” Merkel said. Tsipras was also in high spirits. “I brought spring weather with me from Athens and I hope Greek-German relations will continue in this climate,” he said.The amicable rhetoric came despite further insistence from Tsipras that Germany pay war reparations as well as a loan that was forced on Greece’s central bank during Nazi occupation.“Despite the conciliatory tone struck by Merkel, the German position on Greece has not changed,” Nina Schick, a policy analyst at think tank Open Europe, told City A.M. “As far as Berlin and the rest of Greece’s creditors are concerned, the time for talking is over – and it is now up to the Tsipras government to deliver on the Eurogroup agreement of 20 February. They will insist on the implementation of the structural reforms promised by Athens before releasing the next tranche of bailout money.” whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proofcenter_img Monday 23 March 2015 10:03 pm Angela Merkel and Alexis Tsipras talks light on substance – but at least they’re smiling again Tags: Angela Merkel Greek debt crisis People Share Express KCS last_img read more

Iain Duncan Smith says David Cameron will not serve full second term

first_img Show Comments ▼ Joe Hall whatsapp whatsapp Iain Duncan Smith says David Cameron will not serve full second term center_img Iain Duncan Smith has claimed David Cameron will not serve a full second term as Prime Minister if elected, contradicting Cameron’s own statements last week.Cameron said he wanted to “finish the job” in a second term but ruled out the possibility of a third term. However work and pensions secretary Duncan Smith veered from the Party line in an interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show on Sunday, admitting that there would have to be a Conservative leadership contest before the 2020 election.When asked if Cameron would have to step aside during a second term to make way for a leadership contest the former Tory leader said: “Yes that’s right, he does.” Duncan Smith said:Of course there will be a competition at some point, but that will be a competition on the back of a successful Prime Minister doing something that most Prime Ministers have never done before: saying ‘I know when it’s time to go.You’ve had to literally rap the knuckles of people like Gordon Brown and previous prime ministers to get them to think of going, but he’s [Cameron] actually very keen to say ‘there is a limit, there’s an amount of time a prime minister should serve before they get stale’ And he is right about that.The senior cabinet minister added that Cameron set a date for his departure and he would be “sorry to see him go”, praising him for his record on the economy.In his own interview with the BBC last week, Cameron said his party had “some great people coming up” and alluded to Theresa May, George Osborne and Boris Johnson as potential replacements.However, Duncan Smith shied away from endorsing the suggested names, saying: “Having been leader of a party that was interested in having a fight in an empty room in those days but now has changed and wants to have power, I have given up making predictions about who should be doing what.” Share Sunday 29 March 2015 1:35 pm Tags: David Cameron General Election 2015 Iain Duncan Smith Peoplelast_img read more

That shift has dragged Canon’s compact sales down nearly 70 per cent since the market’s peak in 2008 – the year after Apple released its game-changing iPhone.“Sales volume for low-end (digital camera) models declined due to the ongoing contraction of the market in all regions from the previous year,” said Canon in its earnings release. It did not specify first-quarter compact sales, but lowered its 2015 forecast to 7m cameras from 7.8 m, or 23 per cent less than 2014. It projected sales of higher-end cameras with interchangeable lenses at 5.8m rather than 6.4m, representing a 9.4 per cent on-year decline.Canon also said, without elaborating, that first-quarter net profit was brought down by an increase in its effective tax rate as well as a euro which fell 11 per cent against the yen.Canon has been seeking growth opportunities to offset shrinking demand for cameras, and compacts in particular. It plans to buy Swedish surveillance firm Axis AB for $2.7bn (£1.7bn) – offering 340 crowns a share until the extended deadline of 5 May – and as of Friday owned 84 per cent. It does not plan to up its offer even though hedge fund Elliott Management has raised its ownership to 10 per cent. Monday 27 April 2015 9:07 pmlast_img read more
