No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Show Comments ▼ CHANCELLOR George Osborne yesterday struck back at claims he is preparing to scrap plans to increase transparency over bank pay, insisting that the government remains “fully committed” to the proposals put forward last year by Sir David Walker.Under Walker’s proposed reforms, UK banks will have to reveal intricate details of pay structures, including how many bankers fall into compensation brackets over £1m a year.Reports over the weekend suggested Osborne was reconsidering adopting the plans in full due to a backlash from the UK’s major banks. But a close aide to the chancellor yesterday robustly rebutted the claims, adding: “Our position has not changed at all and we remain fully committed.”The Treasury is currently in the process of hashing out the finer details of the transparency proposals with the Financial Services Authority.Walker’s reforms have provoked a near-mutinous reaction from major banks, many of which are actively reviewing their domicile in light of the burden of UK regulation. Last week, HSBC’s global banking chief, Stuart Gulliver, warned a separate decision to force banks to split retail and investment banking arms would have “significant implications” for the location of its headquarters.

FirstGroup names O’Toole as new boss

first_img Show Comments ▼ TRANSPORT operator FirstGroup has chosen former London Underground (LU) boss Tim O’Toole to replace it chief executive Moir Lockhead when he retires at the end of March 2011, the firm said yesterday. O’Toole, who is currently deputy chief executive, will take the reins on 1 November. FirstGroup, which manages the Great Western rail franchise and the Greyhound coach business in America, hired O’Toole last year with a view to him eventually replacing Lockhead. O’Toole confirmed in a conference call yesterday that the firm’s headquarters will remain in Aberdeen, and said he was upbeat in the face of looming public spending cuts. “There are huge challenges we are facing here but this company has such breadth and such residual strength that if anyone can take advantage of this to grow further, it’s FirstGroup,” he said. O’Toole managed LU for six years until February 2009, garnering widespread praise for his cool handling of the 7 July bombings and the collapse of rail maintenance firm Metronet in 2007.Lockhead has been in charge of FirstGroup since leading an employee and management buyout of Grampian Regional Transport in 1989.He talked with chairman Martin Gilbert about taking over his role, but decided instead to retire outright.“For someone who had been chief executive to become chairman, it would be much too hard for the new chief executive. It’s time for a change,” said Gilbert.Shares in FirstGroup closed down 0.5 per cent at 349.5p yesterday, valuing the firm at £1.7bn. TIM O’TOOLE AND MOIR LOCKHEADFIRSTGROUPTim O’Toole, 55, was born in Pittsburgh and started his career as a lawyer. He went on to work in the American rail business, and is still a non-executive director at freight company CSX Corporation. He made his name as managing director at London Underground, where he worked for six years from 2003. O’Toole, an American citizen, was given an honorary CBE in 2005 for his handling of the network in the wake of the 7 July transport bombings. He also garnered praise for managing Tube maintenance operations after Metronet Rail collapsed in 2007. He was appointed as a non-executive director at FirstGroup in May 2009, and became chief operating officer and deputy chief executive in June 2010. Sir Moir Lockhead, 65, was born in Sedgefield in County Durham, and first worked as a mechanical engineer. He became a general manager at Grampian Transport in 1985 when the bus industry was privatised, and went on to champion an employee-led buy-out in 1989. He steered the new firm, which started with 500 employees £15m in revenue, into one of the largest UK transport operators, with revenue of over £6bn and more than 130,000 employees.Grampian merged with several bus firms to form FirstGroup in 1995. Lockhead was the inaugural chief executive at the expanded company, and has been based in Aberdeen in the same role ever since.He has won a stack of awards for his work at FirstGroup, including an OBE for services to the bus industry in 2006 and a knighthood for services to transport in the 2008 birthday honours.

Stelios ends brand dispute with easyJet

first_img EASYJET celebrated yesterday after settling a bitter court battle with founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou that will see it hold on to the orange “easy” branding in a deal that is expected to net Stelios more than £80m in royalties over the next ten years.The four-month dispute ended after the two sides agreed a revised branding licence, which has a minimum of ten years, that allows the budget airline to generate revenues from its non-airline operations, such as food and luggage services.EasyJet has agreed to make annual royalty payments equal to 0.25 per cent of its revenue to Stelios’ easyGroup. It will hand the group £3.9m and £4.95m in the first two years of the new 50-year agreement. The settlement gives the airline more freedom to generate revenue from outside services, including the possibility of making commission from hotel and rental car bookings if bought through the group’s website.Stelios, who will be paid £3000,000 a year for the next five years as part of the agreement, has given up the right to appoint himself as chairman of the airline’s board.He described the settlement as a “win-win for all concerned” and said that he was “content that this was a fair deal for both sides”.The two first went to court in June to resolve the dispute. Stelios took easyJet to court to clarify what “core” services were and how much his company should be paid in royalties.MARK SHILLITOHERBERT SMITHMark Shillito, an intellectual property (IP) partner at Herbert Smith, took the lead role advising long-standing client easyJet on its four month branding dispute against easyGroup founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.Shillito has a track record of acting for a number of large corporates embroiled in patent, trademark, branding and contractual disputes. He counts Apple, Vodafone and Yell as some of his clients.Geoffrey Hobbs QC and Emma Himsworth of One Essex Court were appointed as barristers for the court proceedings which kicked off in June.Meanwhile, Jane Mutimear, a partner at law firm Bird & Bird, was the lead adviser and main solicitor to easyGroup and Sir Stelios. She specialises in IP litigation.Michael Bloch QC and James Walmsley of Wilberforce Chambers argued for easyGroup in front of a judge at the chancery division of the High Court.At the heart of the dispute were tensions over a brand licensing agreement that was struck between easyJet and easyGroup when the airline floated a decade ago. Haji-Ioannou was looking for clarification on the definition of the licensing agreement.Emma Sadowski Monday 11 October 2010 9:02 pm KCS-content whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Stelios ends brand dispute with easyJet whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastBrilliant TravelerHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeBrilliant TravelerBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Airbus to seek compensation for Rolls-Royce engine failure

first_imgThursday 18 November 2010 8:43 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp KCS-content AIRCRAFT maker Airbus will seek compensation from Rolls Royce for disruption linked to its engine failure on a Qantas flight earlier this month. Rolls-Royce plans to replace engines in the wake of the Qantas Airbus A380 emergency, when an engine blow-out forced a passenger plane to turn back to Singapore.“We can’t comment on customers but we can say that any cost Airbus incurs, we will seek full financial compensation from Rolls-Royce,” an Airbus spokesperson said yesterday. The move means that Rolls-Royce could face a more serious financial impact than thought from the incident. Airbus, which has almost 200 orders for A380 planes on its books, said disruption caused by the incident could delay deliveries next year.Qantas said yesterday around 40 Rolls-Royce engines, or around half of those in use in A380 aircraft, will be affected. Qantas’ six A380s have been grounded since the incident. The airline said in a memo yesterday its pilots had struggled to shut down an engine on the flight on 4 November due to debris from the Rolls-Royce engine that severed cables as it broke up mid-flight. center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Show Comments ▼ Airbus to seek compensation for Rolls-Royce engine failure Share Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Its load factor – a key measure that determines how full planes are – increased to 85.7 per cent from 84.8 per cent, bringing the twelve-month rolling figure to 87.2 per cent. Last month, the no-frills airline famed for its bright orange logo, said full-year profit had soared almost threefold, as improving demand and cheaper fuel bolstered the bottom line. Recently-installed chief executive Carolyn McCall also said the group would begin paying a dividend in 2012. However, the group has been hampered by disagreements over the pace of expansion in future years. Founder and largest shareholder Stelios Haji-Ioannou wants to put the brakes on expansion by capping aircraft numbers at 200. Show Comments ▼ read more

Bankers face a 90pc bonus tax

first_img IRISH finance minister Brian Lenihan said yesterday he would impose a 90 per cent tax on bankers’ bonuses, in a move to try to silence critics who have said the banking sector drove Ireland into the ground.“I do propose to introduce the amendment to the finance bill to put this matter beyond any doubt and provide a high rate, a 90 per cent rate of charge on any…bankers’ bonuses,” Lenihan said. Lenihan was referring to a bill which is expected to be ruled on early next year.

Although Ladbrokes has strong market presence on the high street, the firm has lost out to rivals online in recent years, and a move for 888 could help to improve its position.Yet the bid could face stiff competition from rivals, with online bookmaker Sportingbet thought to be among other big betting firms who could enter the running.The deal is considerably lower than a £470m bid for 888 attempted by Ladbrokes’ former chief executive Chris Bell four years ago.Concerns over a US Department of Justice crackdown on online betting led to board members refusing to back the plan.American lawmakers introduced legislation in 2006 effectively banning online gambling, handing a raw deal to British betting companies operating in the US.888 remains at risk to prosecution by the US, unlike rivals PartyGaming and Sportingbet, who have both struck deals with the DoJ.Should lawmakers repeal the ban, betting firms could move to unlock the potentially lucrative US market. Last year it was worth an estimated $5.4bn (£3.5bn), a figure that could rise to between $12bn and $16bn if the market is opened up.Ladbrokes told City A.M. it was in preliminary discussions with 888, but added that no offer had been made.
