Pricing the future of 140 characters

first_imgSunday 13 February 2011 11:13 pm Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL whatsapp Pricing the future of 140 characters THE $10bn price tag for Twitter puts its valuation at 222 times revenue, using estimated figures for 2010. Even if the site comes good on projections that ad income will hit $250m in 2012, the multiple is still 40 times revenue – a fancy amount for a business that is yet to turn a profit.A potential buyer will need more than that if it’s going to put this much cash on the table. And Twitter can learn from its suitors how best to approach the next phase of its growth. Facebook’s advertising revenue hit $1.86bn last year, and the site accounted for five per cent of all online advertising in 2010. With other income streams bringing the total to around $2bn, a $50bn valuation is a little less ridiculous (albeit still extreme) when compared to the Twitter figures. Twitter is nearly ten years younger than Google, two years behind Facebook, and still has a lot to prove. It is used by just 12 per cent of internet users, compared to Facebook’s 62 per cent. If it were to pursue a listing, Google’s example would be one to avoid – during its Dutch Auction initial public offering, a series of filing errors and press reports saw the price of its stock drop from around $115 per share to officially start at $85 per share.

New storms to cross US with heavy snow, dangerous thunderstorms, wind chills

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A wintery blast will hit a large part of the country as a couple of storms cross the nation.As of Friday morning, 11 states, from California to Minnesota, are on alert for a storm to hit.The first storm is expected to bring rain and snow to the West Friday — all the way into Southern California.A winter weather advisory has been issued for the mountains outside of San Diego, where some areas may see up to 8 inches of snow.Some much-needed rain is expected in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego Friday.By Saturday night into Sunday, the same storm system will move into Central U.S. with snow for the upper Midwest and the Great Lakes, where a winter storm watch has been issued already.Later on Sunday in the South, a second storm from the Southwest could bring severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and a few tornadoes to Texas and Oklahoma.That second storm will move east and could bring heavy snow Monday into Tuesday from Chicago to New York City.This weekend, a foot of snow may fall in the Rockies and up to 7 inches may fall in Minnesota and Iowa.It is too early to say how much snow the second storm will bring early next week, but some areas could see more than 6 inches of snow from Illinois to New Jersey.Friday night, ahead of the snowy weather, an Arctic air mass will settle in the Midwest and the Northeast.Actual temperatures are below zero Friday morning in parts of the upper Midwest. This air mass will move into the Northeast Friday night.Wind chills are expected to be near zero in western New York, Pennsylvania and into New England Saturday morning, and in the teens along the I-95 corridor.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Bally’s buys Las Vegas’ Tropicana casino for $150M

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink (Tropicana Las Vegas via Facebook, Bally’s Corp)Bally’s is making a bet on the Tropicana Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.Bally’s agreed to buy the operations business for the hotel and casino, while the REIT Gaming & Leisure would retain its ownership of the property itself and continue to collect rent, Bloomberg News reported.Bally’s has been on an acquisition streak lately, having recently struck a $2.7 billion deal to buy online gaming company Gamesys Group Plc. But this would be the Rhode Island-based gaming company’s first operation in Las Vegas. Chairman Soohyung Kim said the firm would likely remodel the property, adding slot machines and putting up new signage.ADVERTISEMENT“It’s hard to be a national player in gaming without a casino [in Las Vegas],” Kim said. “It’s a tried and true pathway that companies like Caesars and MGM have proven.”Kim is the founding partner at Standard General, a New York-based hedge fund that is Bally’s largest shareholder. With its latest acquisitions, it will have properties in 11 states.The casino and gambling industry is going through a major period of change. The Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on sports betting in 2018, leading many gambling companies to rush to break into the market.New York legalized sports betting and developers have lobbied hard to convince state legislators to allow a casino in Manhattan.Earlier this year, Sands Corp. sold all three of its Las Vegas properties for $6 billion as part of a pivot to its Asian market, although it’s unclear what role if any the pandemic had on the decision to exit the market.[Bloomberg News] — Dennis Lynch Tags casinosCommercial Real EstateLas Vegaslast_img read more

Stamp Duty cut: first-time buyers rejoice, but experts warn of price rises

first_imgIf Chancellor Philip Hammond thought his Stamp Duty cut for first time buyers announced during yesterday’s Budget would get a unanimous thumbs up, then things definitely aren’t going to plan.Firstly Robert Cote, Chairman of the Office for Budget responsibility, revealed that his organisation thought the tax cut would push up prices by 0.3% and that “the main financial gainers will actually be people who already own properties, rather than first time buyers themselves”.Treasury Chief Secretary has subsequently dismissed the OBR’s prediction and just a “minor increase”.But Mark Hayward, Chief Executive of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) (pictured, left) also sounded a note of caution saying that although overall it was a positive move, it would increase house prices by pushing up demand for first time buyer properties.“We have seen this in areas where Help to Buy is offered, as it attracts a great deal of interest from first time buyers,” he said.Sarah Beeny, TV presenter and founder of online agent Tepilo (pictured, right), also weighed in, saying she thought the measures would not make a huge difference to the market.“Cutting stamp duty for first time buyers is unlikely to do much – the majority of first time buyers don’t pay anything or only a small amount presently, so it won’t make a huge difference to the masses,” she told The Express.“The only people it will really help are first time buyers purchasing high worth properties, who already have the funds to do so.“Essentially, it strikes me as a bit of a PR stunt designed to generate headlines, but something that will actually make very little difference to the market.”Surveyors weren’t impressed either – Lewis Johnston, RICS’ Parliamentary Affairs Manager (pictured, left), said the thought “scrapping Stamp Duty for first-time buyers may stimulate activity at a time when the market is subdued, but this does not tackle the underlying problem and is something of a distraction from the need to increase supply”.Alison Platt, CEO of Countrywide (pictured, right), however, didn’t think the Stamp Duty cut went far enough.“It is activity among movers that is most critical to the growth of transactions in the wider housing market,” she said. “While first time buyers face affordability issues, so do movers and without making it easier for these second steppers to move on the supply of property to buy will always be limited, adding more to price pressures.”Mark Hayward Philip Hammond Lewis Johnston RICS NAEA Alison Platt Autumn budget 2017 Budget 2017 sarah beeny stamp duty Countrywide first-time buyers November 23, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

STX Finland Holds Keel Laying Ceremony for Highly Advanced OPV

first_img View post tag: Highly View post tag: Naval Industry news February 27, 2013 View post tag: Defence View post tag: Ceremony View post tag: OPV View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today STX Finland Holds Keel Laying Ceremony for Highly Advanced OPV View post tag: Defense Share this articlecenter_img View post tag: holds View post tag: STX View post tag: LAYING View post tag: Advanced The keel of the offshore patrol vessel being built for the Finnish Border Guard was laid, on Monday 25 February 2013, at STX Finland Oy’s Rauma Shipyard. The event was witnessed by representatives of STX Finland, Finnish Border Guard, classification society and media.Scheduled for delivery in November 2013, the 96 metres long and 17 metres wide vessel is technically highly advanced, using the latest technologies and environmentally friendly innovations in accordance with the Government decision-in-principle on sustainable public procurement. The vessel is equipped with machinery using liquefied natural gas (LNG) and diesel as fuel. The requirements of energy efficiency and safe operation of the vessel in different accident situations have been taken more extensively into account in the design of the ship than earlier.In addition to border safety and frontier supervision missions, the offshore patrol vessel can also be used for maritime search and rescue, military national defence and various underwater assignments both independently and in collaboration with other authorities. The vessel will also feature substantial oil destruction capacity with important meaning for the maritime oil destruction capability of Finland and the Baltic Sea region. The Finnish Environment Institute has been closely involved in the design process of the vessel.“Today, we have reached an important milestone in the production of the offshore patrol vessel. Now it is time to begin the assembly of the ship’s hull, and thus the ship will gradually find its final form by the end of July. This order by the Finnish Border Guard is extremely important for the Rauma shipyard, as it combines the shipyard’s Arctic, environmentally friendly and technological competences. This vessel has a direct influence on employment by providing approximately 450 man-years of labour,” says Toivo Ilvonen, STX Finland Oy’s Rauma Shipyard Director.When completed, this vessel will significantly enhance Finland’s maritime search and rescue capability also in difficult accidents with multiple consequences. The vessel’s emergency towing capability facilitates protection of sea transport from damage. In addition, special attention has been paid to the vessel’s own damage control capacity to ensure reliability of operation.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 27, 2013; Image: STX STX Finland Holds Keel Laying Ceremony for Highly Advanced OPV View post tag: Finland View post tag: News by topic View post tag: KEELlast_img read more
