Middle East, China boost PwC revenue

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content Middle East, China boost PwC revenue ACCOUNTANCY giant PwC has seen revenues inch up 1.5 per cent in the past year, as booming demand from the emerging markets offset a slowdown in corporate activity and margin pressure from an aggressively competitive pricing environment.PwC will announce this morning that gross revenues hit $26.6bn (£16.8bn) across its global business in the year to June, a slight increase on last year at constant exchange rates.Senior partner Ian Powell said conditions had been pretty tough in the group’s more developed markets, but added that PwC capitalised over the year on its programme of investing in its emerging markets businesses.The Australasia and Pacific arm grew revenues by almost 10 per cent over the year to $1.29bn, while Southern and Central America grew 11.3 per cent to $780m and the Middle East and Africa region by nearly 17 per cent to $820m.Powell said PwC expects China to contribute as much as the UK to its revenue pool within the next five years, while the Middle East practice is set to double in size in just two years.Across the globe, PwC’s assurance services division, which accounts for roughly half of all its revenues, saw turnover fall 1.3 per cent over the year due to the competitive pricing environment, as the world’s biggest auditors scramble to land large contracts from firms ever more conscious of their costs in the post-recession era.“The pricing of audits has become ferociously competitive on a global basis,” Powell said. “Pricing pressure makes a material impact on a firm of our size, and it means we need to invest more and more in other areas such as consulting and advisory.”The consulting and advisory arm of the business grew by 9.4 per cent over the year to contribute $6.2bn to PwC’s balance sheet. However, this was offset by PwC’s third principle revenue stream, tax services, which saw revenues fall 2.9 per cent to $7.1bn over the year due to the slowdown in corporate dealmaking activity and restructurings.“The general mood across the world is that the transaction climate is improving, but we are still cautious as it is relatively fragile,” said Powell.

In recent years, the Sharon Plain underwent a dramatic transformation, and its small villages were reinvented as communities that mix agriculture, orchards, and suburban private houses. At the same time, spatial planning, land parcellation, and planning restrictions imposed by local municipalities successfully preserve the characteristics of a quiet and green countryside.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Amit GeronK House exemplifies how architecture meets high urban design standards while taking into account the landscape of its rural surroundings. Vered Blatman-Cohen designed the house as a “cube” that was dropped onto the narrow, elongated plot. The land’s topography, which is characterized by a slope, was utilized in the construction of another structure that serves as a studio and fitness room with a rooftop pool. Half below ground, it is open in the lower level and hidden in the upper level.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe K family consists of two parents in their sixties and three adult children who visit often. Alongside the family’s love for hosting family and friends, it was vital to maintain maximum privacy inside and around the house. The house is designed as a deconstructed cube. The deconstruction of the mass is manifested both in the internal layout, dividing the space with inner patios, and in the outer shell with the design of simple and elegant integral mashrabiyas, based on built beams.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Amit GeronThe mashrabiya motif recurs throughout the house on the ceiling as a pergola and as an external wall. The combination of inner courtyards with mashrabiya screens offers a barrier and privacy, both inside and around the house. The beams’ size was designed so that in hot afternoons they offer shade. In addition to protection from the sun, at certain hours of the day, the shadows blur the boundaries and add another dimension to the architectural mass.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe white cube concept is softened in the interior design with the extensive use of wood and organic palette. Thus, all the utility functions in the master bedroom (closet, ensuite bathroom, and work area) are defined by a wood-clad floating cube. The floor is made of large brushed stones slabs and the furniture is modern and simple, combining wood and textile in natural tones.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe exceptional nature of the K House is revealed in the back of the house, overlooking the farmlands in the south, in the connection with the steep topography through the development of terraces and the extensive use of vegetation. The house is located on the high level, seeing but not seen. The spaces in the lower level are visible and open into constructed beds with seasonal vegetables, vine, and fruit trees, creating an organic connection with Sharon’s agricultural landscape.Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow lessHow to Join Wooden Elements: 6 Tips to Build Safe and Strong StructuresArticlesHood River Retreat / Wittman Estes Architecture + LandscapeSelected Projects Share Lead Architect: Save this picture!© Amit Geron+ 28Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeBlatman Cohen architecture designOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMoshav HerutOn FacebookIsraelPublished on November 20, 2019Cite: “K House / Blatman Cohen architecture design” 20 Nov 2019.

Top U.S. Milk Processor Struggling

first_img Top U.S. Milk Processor Struggling By NAFB News Service – Aug 9, 2017 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Top U.S. Milk Processor Struggling Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter A new report shows that Dean Foods Company is struggling amid slowing milk sales and rising costs. The news comes as Dean’s largest customer, Wal-Mart Stores, is preparing to open its own milk processing plant, reducing its reliance on Dean. The Texas-based milk supplier this week cut its per-share profit expectations nearly in half. Shares of Dean Foods are down 45 percent this year, and the company’s CEO has pledged to reduce annual expenses by up to $50 million by 2018. The Wall Street Journal says Dean’s recent struggles, however, raised broader questions among some analysts on payoffs from the milk company’s long-term strategy to focus investment on branded milk products. Meanwhile, retailers have added to the price pressure by aggressively pushing for cheaper milk for their own store brands.Wal-Mart’s soon-to-open milk plant in Indiana will cost Dean about 90 million to 95 million gallons’ worth of sales annually, though Dean has been preparing for the shift.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articlePerdue Turning to Industry for Dicamba FixNext articleChapman’s and Demerly Pick Up Indiana Young Farmer Honors NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Lawmakers Urge Administration to Appeal Damaging Court Ruling for Hog Farmers

If left unchallenged, they say the ruling will cause tremendous financial harm to American hog farmers starting at the end of this month.The federal court’s decision that takes effect on June 29 struck down a provision of the USDA’s New Swine Inspection System allowing for faster harvest facility line speeds. The system got approved for industry adoption in 2019.At a time when the U.S. faces a much-needed increase in pork harvest capacity, the court order will reduce plant capacity at six plants that are currently running at a quicker harvest pace by as much as 25 percent.“While the economic impact to the packers will be significant, it’s the nation’s small-and-medium-sized farmers who will suffer the greatest harm from upstream impacts,” the lawmakers say in the letters.NPPC President Jen Sorenson thanked the lawmakers who spearheaded the letter and urged other lawmakers to join the growing calls for USDA and the DOJ to quickly intervene and “prevent this carnage to hog farmers.”Producers looking for more information about the impact of the court’s decision can go to www.nppc.org.

Cheesy butternut squash soup

first_imgLinkedin Email Advertisement Facebook GREAT in winter, but I really think that this is a super dish to have in Spring as the warmth of the flavours and aromas bring a fabulous taste and this is further enhanced by adding the rind from the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese as it cooks. Simply fry the onion, add the butternut squash, stock and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind and cook gently for 20 minutes. Remove the rind and blend the soup until smooth. Then, grill slices of French bread topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and after ladling the soup into warmed bowls, top each one with a piece of French toast.

Limerick based budding social entrepreneurs attend Social Entrepreneurs Ireland’s ‘virtual bootcamp’

first_imgBusinessNewsLimerick based budding social entrepreneurs attend Social Entrepreneurs Ireland’s ‘virtual bootcamp’By Cian Reinhardt – June 3, 2020 163 TAGSbusinessentrepreneurNewssocial enterprise Facebook Business photo created by jannoon028 – www.freepik.comA DIVERSITY and inclusion talent platform, a mobile sensory room, a carpooling app and a garden based education programme were just some of the ideas explored at Social Entrepreneurs Ireland (SEI)’s Ideas Academy ‘virtual bootcamp’ that took place this week.More than 100 budding social entrepreneurs – people starting an enterprise with the aim to solving social issues or effecting social change – attended the online event with participants logging in from Limerick, Laois, Cork, Clare, Galway and beyond.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Each of the Bootcamp participants were given the chance to pitch for a place on the programme over the past two weeks, participants made their application virtually to a live panel of judges comprised of SEI supporters and staff.The event, which took place on Tuesday, June 2, brought all the bootcamp participants together online for a series of workshops and networking opportunities.Now in its fourth year, SEI’s Ideas Academy programme provides training and support to those with early-stage ideas to solve social problems. The four-month programme includes interactive sessions on organisational structures, governance, and piloting, and culminates with the opportunity to pitch for seed funding from a total pot of €40,000.This year’s Ideas Academy saw a record number of 245 people apply and put forward their idea to solve a social problem. Up to 60 places are available on the programme. Initially due to run in locations in the East, South and West of the country, due to COVID-19, SEI has re-designed the Ideas Academy in recent weeks to run it online and transition to in-person delivery, if and when possible during the lifespan of the programme.Today’s event also gave bootcamp participants the opportunity to hear from SEI alumni including Tracy Keogh, co-founder of Grow Remote and Jolene Cox, founder of the Now We’re Cooking Programme.CEO of Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, Darren Ryan said the group was “incredibly heartened and inspired by the number of people who answered our call to see past the problems to the solutions”.He said, “We launched our national call before any of the coronavirus restrictions came into place, when the world looked very different to how it does now. During the campaign, we pivoted our offering and delivery to match the current needs of social entrepreneurs starting out and are excited to now roll out the Ideas Academy online for the first time ever.”The SEI CEO noted the Bootcamp events are usually a great opportunity “to not only spark ideas into action, but to connect like-minded social entrepreneurs with each other”.“And although this is more challenging when we can’t physically be in the same room together, the courage, passion and determination shown by all bootcamp participants this year has been second to none. We look forward to working with those who make it onto the programme over the coming months,” he said.SEI’s selection process is supported by DCC plc. The lead corporate sponsor of the Ideas Academy is Bank of America. The Ideas Academy West is supported by Lifes2good Foundation.For more information on Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, visit socialentrepreneurs.ie.

Noting that the nature and gravity of the offences in other cases in which such accused/convict is involved is also to be assessed independently in light of the chances of such person indulging in committing crime again, if released on parole, Justice H. S. Madaan asserted that “subjective satisfaction” is to be arrived at by the police authorities and the concerned District Collector in releasing the convict on parole. The Single Judge was considering a plea for setting aside the April 9 order passed by the District Magistrate and grant of parole to the petitioner in view of the Supreme Court guidelines/Government notification providing that the prisoners undergoing imprisonment under seven years should be released in light of the Pandemic. The petitioner was convicted in connection with a FIR dated May 10, 2019 under Sections 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to public servant), 353 (assault/criminal force against public servant), 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of duty), 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly) and 333 (grievous hurt to public servant) IPC, for a period of six years, and his appeal, though admitted, is pending hearing in the High Court. The petitioner is behind bars since the date of his arrest in the case and has not been released on bail or parole. “The petitioner had applied for parole but the same was denied by the Collector for the reason that the petitioner has another case pending against him and he may influence the witnesses. According to the petitioner, the prosecution witnesses have since been examined in that case. Furthermore, in the FIR, seven persons were convicted and out of those five were granted parole and one of them, who was granted parole, namely, (…), was having more cases pending against him and still he was granted parole”, recorded the Single Bench. Justice Madaan further noted the reply of the concerned Deputy Superintendent of Police, contending that on the application of the petitioner for grant of parole for six weeks, an enquiry was conducted by the local police and it was found that the petitioner is facing trial in another similar case and if he is granted concession of parole, then he can threaten or induce the witnesses and indulge in committing other offences, and therefore his name was not recommended for release of parole. Accordingly, the bench arrived at the conclusion that the impugned order dated 9.4.2020 passed by the Collector is “quite detailed and well reasoned” and it “does not come out to be suffering from any illegality or infirmity”. “It is clearly mentioned in the order that a meeting of High Powered committee was held under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble Mr.Justice Rajeev Sharma of this Court on 30.3.2020 and cases of the jail inmates for release on parole was considered. Since the petitioner was serving imprisonment for six years and involved in other cases, he was not released on parole”, noted the bench. In dismissing the plea, Justice Madaan proceeded to observe that “the petitioner is claiming parity with his co-convicts in the FIR but there cannot be any parity for such like reason”, adding that the role played by each accused in the crime cannot be exactly identical. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
