Back in May, rival Astaire was forced to shelve its plans for a £3.6m acquisition of Hoodless after discovering a £1.4m black hole on the balance sheet of its own retail stockbroking subsidiary, Rowan Dartington.Hoodless is keen to continue in its pursuit of a deal and is thought to have already received preliminary expressions of interest from different parties.It is just one of a number of small-cap broking players sniffing around consolidation deals as the numerous smaller firms in the sector struggle to cope with ever-declining levels of business from more cost-conscious growth companies in the wake of the financial crisis.Last month, larger rival Evolution Group expressed a possible interest in acquiring Panmure Gordon, though it stressed that no formal discussions had taken place and that an offer may not be forthcoming.Panmure Gordon, for its part, appeared resistant to the idea of a deal, insisting it has a strong footprint, significant growth potential and a clear strategy “as an independent entity”.

John Lewis sales stalled by strike and sunshine

first_img RETAILER John Lewis said sales growth slowed last week, as a strike on London Underground and a brief Indian summer meant fewer shoppers in its stores.The employee-owned company, traditionally seen as a bellwether of the UK retail sector but which has outperformed competitors for over a year, said on Friday sales at its 28 department stores and two “at home” stores rose 7.2 per cent to £59.5m in the week to 9 October. That compares with growth of 13.9, 15.1 and 11.7 per cent in the previous three weeks respectively.“The tube strike on Monday (4 October) in London, added to the relatively good weather compared to a year ago, contributed to lower footfall in our shops,” said buying and brand director Peter Ruis.“However, the fantastically strong John Lewis Direct (Internet) sales (up 46 per cent) must give us confidence that consumer spending is still strong despite the potential impact of the upcoming public sector cuts,” he said.A survey on Wednesday said consumer confidence fell in September to its lowest level in a year, while one on Tuesday said retail sales growth halved in the same month, as uncertainty ahead of the government’s October 20 review made shoppers nervous.John Lewis also owns the 234-store Waitrose supermarket chain. Here sales rose 9.6 per cent to £92.8m underlining its status as one of the UK’s fastest growing grocers.Commercial director Mark Williamson said the outcome was boosted by the firm’s “Brand Price Match” campaign, where 1,000 branded lines are price matched with Tesco, Britain’s biggest retailer.Sales were also boosted by consumers eating in on Saturday to watch popular television shows “X Factor” and “Strictly Come Dancing,” with sales of pizza up 30 per cent and Italian ready-meals up 23 per cent.

Irish state to nationalise rest of its major banks

first_img IRELAND is set to nationalise the remainder of its stricken banking system, Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen said yesterday. The plunge in share prices for Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Banks this week could leave the state in majority control of Ireland’s three major lenders, with Anglo Irish Bank already having been nationalised. With the banks desperate for cash and with investors steering clear, it is likely to be left to the government to prevent them from collapsing with further cash injections.Since Monday, AIB has seen 28 per cent wiped off its value while Bank of Ireland stock has plunged 42 per cent. The banks are also now dependent on the European Central Bank for their survival, with the ECB supplying them with €130bn (£110) in October alone. Cowen’s comments come even as Irish central Bank governor Patrick Honohan said that the government stake in the banks was “for sale”. Meanwhile, Moody’s ratings agency warned that the Irish government was being too optimistic about economic growth and threatened a “multi-notch downgrade” as a result. S&P has also cut Ireland’s rating from A to AA-. whatsapp KCS-content Share whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proofcenter_img Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:04 pm 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Irish state to nationalise rest of its major banks Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Optimism for US recovery

first_img whatsapp STEADY growth is being observed in the US, the central bank reported last night.In its latest beige book, the Federal Reserve said the economy “continued to improve, on balance” from early/mid-October to mid-November.Manufacturing activity continued to grow in “almost all” districts, reflecting optimistic results from yesterday’s ISM manufacturing index.The beige book found positive signs for employment. “Hiring activity showed some improvement across most Districts,” it said.And expectations for the holiday season are high, “with several districts expecting higher sales when compared to year-ago levels.” Yet there was also bad news for consumer spending. “Households remain price sensitive and focused on buying necessities,” the Fed revealed. And gloom still lurks over the US housing market, which “remains depressed,” with signs in some areas of “further weakening during the past six weeks.”Overall, however, the report was cautiously optimistic. “Anecdotal reports of the districts suggest that activity, on balance, has accelerated modestly,” said Michael Gapen of Barclays Capital Research.

Dissatisfied bank customers still remain loyal

first_imgTuesday 18 January 2011 7:21 pm Tags: NULL Share KCS-content LAST week we saw that Santander had a difficult 2010 in terms of customer perceptions, with poor service quality leading to customer dissatisfaction and driving down scores across all BrandIndex measures. This week we ask whether that actually matters, as a new report from YouGov SixthSense into the customer journey suggests that customer inertia may give Santander hope. Only 15 per cent of adults have changed their main bank in the past five years, and most of those have done so for lifestyle reasons. The reason for this low customer churn is that 40 per cent of those that haven’t changed are “reluctant loyalists” – those who are not satisfied with their provider but remain loyal. The concern remains, however, as the report reveals that among adults who have changed their provider in the past five years, the impact of positive reviews on financial websites (49 per cent), positive reviews in the personal finance pages of newspapers and magazines (40 per cent) and features in the best buy tables of price comparison websites (40 per cent) are strong. Assuming their reluctant loyalists make their voices heard, Santander is likely to record poor reviews, but the main impact of this will probably be that the bank fails to attract new customers, rather than losing existing ones. The conundrum for banks chasing Santander’s dissatisfied customers is that whilst it is customer service levels that drive satisfaction, it is the bank’s offerings that people look at when considering a new provider. “Better value for money” (50 per cent) and “bank charges” (49 per cent) both outperform “customer service” (42 per cent) as factors precipitating change. The challenge, then, is first to overcome the inertia by playing on service dissatisfaction and then to show that they have better offerings than their competitors.Stephan Shakespeare is founder and chief executive of YouGov.
