The Arrow Global Group (LSE: ARW) share price has exploded following the release of pre-close financials. The credit manager was last 12% higher in Thursday trading at 208p per share. This is the UK share’s most expensive level since March 2020.Arrow Global didn’t just confirm that trading has remained very strong in recent months. It suggested it could begin doling out dividends sooner than it had been expecting too.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…Arrow’s trading continues to impressToday, Arrow Global said it had reported “an encouraging final quarter of 2020 with improved prospects for 2021 trading.” It also said it expects to have traded beyond expectations in the October-December period, building on the return to profitability it had enjoyed in quarter three.Putting meat on the bone, Arrow said it had “continued to see strong balance sheet cash collections performance and profitability” in the October to December quarter. It said fourth-quarter collections came in at 111% of its half-year estimated remaining collections estimates.Third-party Asset Management and Servicing revenues had also remained “resilient”, it said. This was helped by a record 26 new contract wins the UK share racked up in 2020, it noted.On top of this, the credit giant exceeded its fourth quarter target deployment of the €1.7bn Arrow Credit Opportunities 1 fund. The investment vehicles which make up the fund had invested (prior to recycled capital) approximately 28% of their committed capital. The fund is designed to let the business invest in credit opportunities all over Europe.Dividends to return in 2021Arrow Global chief executive Lee Rochford went on to say that “continued strong trading in the first weeks of 2021 means that we are increasingly confident of reducing leverage significantly by the end of the year.”As a result, Arrow said it should start paying dividends again earlier than expected at the end of 2021.The business scrapped its final dividend for 2020 back in April as the Covid-19 crisis developed. It said that the “prudent” decision was made to protect it against any possible pandemic-related disruption. Arrow decided not to pay an interim dividend back in August either as reduced collections would push leverage higher. Then, it warned it would focus capital allocation “on deleveraging and capturing the opportunity arising from post-crisis investments.”Arrow today predicted leverage of 5.1 times at the end of 2020. This is “considerable better” than it had been expecting when the business renegotiated its revolving credit facility back in August, it said.The UK share added that leverage will peak around the middle of 2021 “as the negative impact of H1 2020 Covid-19 lockdowns on collections remain in the Group’s trailing twelve month secured net debt to adjusted EBITDA leverage calculation.”However, it also said leverage should drop to approximately 4 times by the end of the year. This reading would be “significantly better than the covenant requirement,” it noted. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Baseball falls to UT-Arlington

Mavericks starter Jake Wilcox held TCU scoreless through the first five innings en route to a 4-3 upset win. The Mavericks took a 3-0 lead very early in the game, when catcher Brady Cox hit a three-run home run in the 3rd inning off of TCU’s Rex Hill. The game would stay at 3-0 until the 7th inning when Arlington added on a fourth run on a wild pitch. It looked as if there was absolutely no hope for the Horned Frogs’ offense until the 8th inning, when second baseman Cam Warner hit a three-run homer to cut the UT Arlington lead to 4-3. TCU was able to get the tying run on base in the bottom half of the 9th, but the Horned Frogs fell just short of completing the comeback. With a runner on first, the Mavericks got a double-play ball to earn the victory. The Mavericks got the job done by using just two pitchers, starter Jake Wilcox and reliever Jacob Moreland, who came in for the last four innings of the game. TCU had six hits on the night, but it was just not enough to top UT-Arlington. The loss snaps a five-game win streak for TCU, which included a 17-4 victory against the very same UT-Arlington team and a sweep of Wichita State. The Horned Frogs will have a day off as they prepare for their weekend series on the road against the Kansas Jayhawks. TCU is now 22-5 on the season, with a 13-3 home record. center_img ReddIt TCU suspends study abroad programs through spring 2021 TCU: A campus altered by COVID-19 TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Previous articleThe Skiff: April 7, 2016Next articleFort Worth ISD honors model teachers, names finalists for ‘District Teacher of the Year’ Derek Lytle RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Derek Lytlehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/derek-lytle/ Derek Lytlehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/derek-lytle/ Derek Lytlehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/derek-lytle/ What we’re reading: Joe Biden has narrow lead in uncalled states, COVID-19 numbers reach a new high Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award + posts last_img read more

Subhash Reddy and MR Shah. He commenced his arguments by submitting to the Bench that while the Supreme Court was well within the contours of its jurisdiction to set aside the Guidelines, the Bench had to first decipher whether the Centre would supersede the State. He added a caveat to the submission, stating that he did not want to make into a Centre v. State argument. However, he requested the Bench to read the UGC Act and the powers of the UGC enumerated in it. The SG then referred to the State of Maharashtra’s “political somersault” in conducting the exams and then opposing its conduction. “On 6th May, State of Maharashtra constituted a State-level Committee headed by Minister of Higher and Technical Education. This Committee recommended the exams to be conducted and the State accepted their report”, submitted the SG. The SG went on to counter the arguments put forth by Senior Advocates Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Shyam Divan at a previous hearing, and submitted that the decision to hold the exams was not arbitrary in any manner whatsoever and that it was a must for final-year students. The Bench was then taken through the Guidelines issued by the UGC (April 30 and July 6) by the SG to drive home the point that the earlier Guidelines were not mandatory. Further, he argued that presently many Universities were conducting the exams – in online, offline and hybrid mode. He referred to Delhi University as an example of smooth conduction of examinations. Additionally, the SG emphasized upon the importance of final-year exams by submitting, “The performance in examination brings in scholarship and recognition, as well as job opportunities”. SG: The UGC’s directions are meant to ensure that the degrees of the students are provided to them at the lastest. It is for their interest only.#StudentsInSCForJustice #StudentsInSCAgainstUGC #student_lives_matter #31StudentsInSCAgainstUGC @anubha1812 @advocate_alakh— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 18, 2020 The SG, in order to convey to the Bench that there had been proper application of mind as well as assessment of ground realities on behalf of UGC before promulgation of the July 6 Guidelines, referred to the Standard Operating Procedure which laid down the dos and don’ts and had been vetted by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. “The SOP talks about thermal scanning, masks, social distancing, and this was approved so as to ensure that the health of students remained intact. The UGC and other Regulators exist for the protection of interests of stakeholders. Here, the students are the stakeholders”. It was further averred that the decision to conduct the exams by September 30 had been taken in order to ensure that the degrees of the students were provided to them at the earliest for admission into foreign universities and higher education; it was, therefore, in interest of the students. The SG then submitted that the impugned Guidelines derived their power from Entry 66 of List I of Schedule 7 of the Constitution of India. He drew the attention of the Bench to Regulation 6(1) of the 2003 Regulations which stipulated that a minimum standard must be adhered to by the University before conferring the first degree. Therefore, it was argued that the Guidelines possessed a statutory mandatory force. This submission was buttressed by a 2005 judgement of Yashpal Singh and a 2013 judgement of Maha Vaishno Devi Mahila Vishwavidyalaya v. State of Uttar Pradesh. Lastly, it was contended by the SG that though he did not wish to traverse into the area of whether the Centre was supreme or the State was supreme, however, he did wish to bring into light the fact that the Disaster Management Act, 2005, was designed in a manner wherein a disaster could be local or pan-India. The Bench, however, informed the SG, that the only question that needed to be answered was whether the University’s decision under State Disaster Management Authority could override UGC Guidelines. To the SG’s response that the Central Government would reign supreme, the Bench noted that a harmonization of provisions had to take place and that if a certain situation in a State would impede the conduct of examinations, how could the UGC override the State and still mandate for the exams to be held. The SG winded up his submission by stating that in those cases, the State could approach the Centre and request for the deadline to be pushed. However, it could not decide to confer degrees without exams. Additionally, the September 30 deadline had only been formulated in the interest of students; it was not a diktat. Before the hearing was concluded, SG Mehta remarked that the country was opening up gradually. “The country has started working. The students are 21-22 year olds. Can you really believe that they will not be going out?”, he stated. On that note, the Supreme Court reserved the judgement in the instant matter. All Counsels have been directed to submit a short note on their submission within three days.

She will be missed by all of us. She was a real asset to the Pike Bullock FSA. We all wish her the very best.”Everage is a native of Crenshaw County and worked at the ASCA office in Luverne prior to coming to the FSA office in Troy.“Although I didn’t grow up on a farm, there was farmland all around and I learned to love and appreciate the land and the people who farmed it,” Everage said. “When the positon with the FSA came open, I applied because it seemed to be the right job for me.”Everage said dealing with the rules and regulations of the job could be rather taxing, but she always found great pleasure in working with the producers. Sponsored Content “I enjoy people and working with the farmers and getting to know them was a very enjoyable part of my job,” Everage said. “I have great appreciation for our producers and the work they do. It has been a pleasure to work with them and serve the farming community.”Everage said working for the FSA has provided her with many opportunities, including fieldwork, from flying over the croplands of Pike and Bullock counties to actually climbing grain bins with a measuring device in tow. Doing field work was interesting and often exciting and a welcomed diversion from office work, Everage said. She expressed appreciation to those she has worked with over the years.“I am thankful for the opportunity to work for the FSA. It has been the right place for me,” she said.Everage said she is looking forward to joining forces with her husband, Anthony Everage, who retired as Troy Police Chief about six years ago.“I’m looking forward making my own schedule and not having anything that I really have to do,” she said. “At least, from time to time.”About a year ago, Everage began baking and decorating cookies and baking is a hobby she really enjoys. Although she bakes mainly for family and friends, there’s a window of opportunity there that she just might pursue.“I love nature and I plan to do more exercising,” Everage said. “Anthony and I like to bike. We have street bikes and mountain bikes so we’ll do more biking. I love all of God’s creations. I love the mountains and the beach, just everything He has made for us to enjoy.” Everage is also looking forward to having more time to spend with family, son, Jonathan and his wife, Grace, and daughter Bonnie and her husband Clay Helms.She did admit that adjusting from a structured work day to a day of leisure might take some getting used to but she is ready to give it a try.

Dramatic video shows Atlanta police pulling trapped passenger out of car engulfed in flames

first_imgAtlanta Police Department(ATLANTA) — A very lucky passenger in a car accident in Atlanta has two police officers to thank for saving his life from an inferno consuming the vehicle.Two officers from the Atlanta Police Department may have thought they were responding to an average car accident at about 4 a.m. Sunday, but when they arrived the front of the car was already engulfed in flames. One officer went to the trunk to grab a fire extinguisher, while the other sprinted into action to pull out the front-seat passenger, who was trapped in the mangled front of the sedan.The small fire extinguisher had little effect in putting out the fire, but bystanders managed to pull out the other occupants of the car, which police said crashed into a utility pole.“Come on get out,” you can hear someone screaming in the background.“His legs are stuck,” another person yelled.Eventually both police officers work around to the driver’s side to pull the passenger out through the back door.The officers pull the man to safety as the video ends.Three occupants of the car were taken to the hospital, police said. The officers were uninjured, though one had his pants catch on fire.“We are extremely proud of the actions of these officers. They acted quickly and with determination and ultimately were able to remove the passenger before he sustained further injury,” Atlanta police said in a statement. “We are also thankful for the actions of the citizens who stopped and assisted immediately after the accident.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgiStock(LOS ANGELES) — PG&E, the California power utility, has reached a $13.5 billion settlement with victims of the catastrophic Northern California wildfires of 2017 and 2018.The agreement settles the last major lawsuit to arise from the 2017-2018 fires, following a $1 settlement with affected cities and counties, and an $11 billion settlement with the insurance companies handling claims.Officials with PG&E, which last year filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in anticipation of its legal challenges, said Friday’s settlement will put the utility on a path to emerge from Chapter 11 by the state-imposed June 30, 2020 deadline.“From the beginning of the Chapter 11 process, getting wildfire victims fairly compensated, especially the individuals, has been our primary goal,” PG&E CEO and President Bill Johnson said in a statement. “We want to help our customers, our neighbors and our friends in those impacted areas recover and rebuild after these tragic wildfires.”In addition to covering the 2017 Northern California wildfires and the 2018 Camp Fire, the agreement settles claims related to the 2017 Tubbs fire and the 2016 Ghost Ship warehouse fire, although PG&E did not admit fault in the latter two fires.The Camp Fire, the most devastating in the state’s history, was responsible for at least 80 deaths. More than 18,600 structures were destroyed in the blaze, which scorched upwards of 150,000 acres in Northern California’s Butte County.Improperly maintained PG&E power lines were found to be responsible for sparking the blaze.Friday’s settlement is subject to approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

Thunder guard Brewer questionable for opener against Utah

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Thunder might be without starting shooting guard Corey Brewer for their first-round playoff series opener Sunday against Utah.Brewer sprained his right knee during Oklahoma City’s regular-season finale against Memphis. He did light work Friday and didn’t practice.Another Thunder shooting guard, Alex Abrines, is in concussion protocol. He was injured during a win over the Miami Heat on Monday and didn’t play against Memphis. The reserve averages 4.7 points per game and has made 84 3-pointers this season.Coach Billy Donovan said he’s not sure if either will be ready for the opener.“I don’t know that yet,” he said. “We’ll have to get closer to that. I don’t want to speculate either way. Every day, we’ll find out a little more.”The Thunder added the 32-year-old Brewer after the All-Star break to fill the void left when Andre Roberson was knocked out for the season with a ruptured left patellar tendon. Brewer started 16 of 18 games with the Thunder and posted averages of 10.1 points and 2.1 steals per game. Oklahoma City is 11-5 with him as a starter.The injuries could force 19-year-old rookie Terrance Ferguson into a more significant role. Ferguson has 12 starts this season and averages 3.1 points for the season. He’s an explosive dunker and an improving 3-point shooter.“Eighty-two games, I think, has helped him,” Donovan said. “He’s obviously been able to be in the rotation. I think that was really important during the year.”Donovan didn’t say how he would adjust if Brewer and Abrines are unavailable. He said Ferguson’s mental approach will help him if he is given more responsibility.“He’s done a really good job of keeping himself ready and focused,” Donovan said. “Obviously, the playoffs are new for him. This is the first time he’s going through it. I’ve got a lot of confidence in Terrance just because of his competitiveness and how hard he works, and he’s a bright guy and will put forth a great effort getting himself prepared and ready to play.” Tags: Billy Donovan/Corey Brewer/Oklahoma City Thunder/Utah Jazz Associated Press April 13, 2018 /Sports News – Local Thunder guard Brewer questionable for opener against Utahlast_img read more
