Deutsche Bank set for a third quarter loss

first_img Deutsche Bank yesterday said sales and trading activity during July and August was weaker than a year ago, providing a warning shot that third-quarter investment banking earnings could be weak across the board.In a trading update provided as part of the prospectus for Deutsche Bank’s planned €10.2bn (£8.6bn) capital increase, Germany’s flagship lender said it expects to post a loss during the third quarter thanks to a one-off charge and weaker trading. The main reason for the loss is a €2.3bn revaluation charge for the bank’s stake in Deutsche Postbank, but news of weak trading over the summer months sent jitters across the sector.Deutsche Bank shares closed down 4.5 per cent, helping send the Stoxx Europe 600 banking index down 0.8 per cent lower as Deutsche Bank’s rivals UBS, Credit Suisse and HSBC closed down one per cent or more.Deutsche Bank said sales and trading revenues at its corporate banking and securities (CB&S) businesses suffered seasonal reductions in July and August that were “more marked than in the comparable third quarter of 2009”.In the third quarter of 2009 Deutsche Bank had posted a pre-tax profit of €1.4bn.

SciPlay moves into casual gaming with Come2Play acquisition

The deal came before SciPlay was spun off from Scientific Games last year.“Adding a new genre of evergreen casual games and an incredibly talented team to our portfolio immediately expands our market beyond social casino apps, and enables us to leverage our unique technology and strategies to drive player engagement and grow revenue,” SciPlay chief executive Josh Wilson explained.“We believe that with our support and expertise in user acquisition, analytics and live ops, we will be able to drive new growth behind the Come2Play titles.”Come2Play chief executive Barzilay added: “Our studio was founded on our passion to make games that really connect with our players, and we are thrilled to be joining SciPlay to take our games to the next level.“By leveraging the expertise and support from the wider SciPlay team, we will amplify the reach of our games, including our ground-breaking Solitaire game, Solitaire Pets Adventure.”The deal comes amid growing interest in casual games from studios traditionally focused on other social genres. Zynga acquired Turkish casual gaming specialist Peak Games in a $1.8bn deal earlier this month, while DoubleDown Interactive announced that same month that a key motivation behind a US initial public offering was to fund the business’ expansion into the genre.

Samson’s score was the highest-ever by a Rajasthan batsman and the highest by a batsman on captaincy debut in IPL history.

Financial sector still gives more to charity than other industries

first_img The financial sector still gives far more to charity than any other industry sector, according to the Directory of Social Change’s first Company Giving Almanac. Research for the Almanac examined a sample of over 400 companies which support UK charities, and the DSC claims it “provides the most comprehensive picture of company giving to charitable causes in the UK to date”.Despite the financial crisis, the financial sector gives £245 million in cash, or £319 million including in-kind donations. The total provided by all companies in the UK is in the region of £700 to £800 million, so financial institutions provide nearly half of all corporate donations. Advertisement Even within the financial sector, one bank dominates charitable giving: the part-publicly owned Lloyds Banking Group provides 25% of all the giving from the financial services sector. One per cent?Despite the scale of their giving, financial sector companies still give only 0.7% of their pre-tax profits, short of the 1% standard that was advocated as a benchmark some years ago.Overall, the companies analysed in the Almanac managed to give only 0.4% of their company pre-tax profits to charity, including in-kind donations, or 0.3% if you consider only cash donations.Author Dr Catherine Walker said: “The fallout from the financial crash continues, with more scandals shredding the reputation and integrity of the financial sector. Ironically, these same institutions give more to charity than corporate counterparts in other industries.”Clearly bankers and financiers need not just to re-establish moral values within their business culture but to shout about it too. They could give more to social causes, but other businesses sectors should look at the example set by the banks and financial institutions in terms of charitable giving and take note.”The Company Giving Almanac can be downloaded for free from the DSC.Great GivingThe DSC is using the research findings to step up its campaign for Great Giving, which aims to achieve better funding relationships between charities and their funders. “We think companies can give more, more companies can give, and companies can be better givers”, says the DSC.

Paris taxi drivers battle Uber

first_imgTaxicab drivers in Paris, Marseilles and Lyons, France, joined by drivers from Brussels, Belgium, disrupted traffic on June 25 and fought with police in their battle against the multinational car-service corporation, Uber.To understand why workers have targeted Uber, you have to know how Uber works and how Uber’s owners exploit those who drive under Uber’s control.Uber is a San Francisco-based multinational company that lets people arrange their ride through their smart phones. The person connects with Uber, which connects with a driver and car. Uber charges the customer less than do most local taxi or car services, while dumping these costs onto its drivers and a greater risk onto its clients.Founded in 2009, Uber now operates in more than 250 cities in 50 countries. According to Uber’s co-founder and chief executive, Travis Kalanick, the company had 26,000 drivers in New York City alone; 15,000 in London; 22,000 in San Francisco; 10,000 in Paris; and 20,000 in Chengdu, China. Last December, the Financial Times estimated Uber’s worth as between $35 and $40 billion.Since Uber’s drivers are “independent” contractors and allegedly not employees, Uber doesn’t need to buy auto insurance, nor to get taxi licenses, nor to buy gasoline, nor pay benefits.Regular taxi drivers have little enough protection and benefits. Those working through Uber have it worse. Uber needn’t comply with regulations like wage-and-hour standards. Uber needn’t reimburse its workers for out-of-pocket costs, such as bridge and turnpike tolls, that drivers pay for while providing service to Uber’s customers. That’s why Uber’s rides are cheaper.Other companies also disguise their workers as “independent contractors.” Uber competitor Lyft and Instacart, a grocery delivery service, both use driver-contractors. Microsoft, Google and Oracle all use tech-contractors. Construction and trucking companies also make extensive use of “independent” contractors. Since there is no central register of such contractors, the extent and impact of their use is hard to evaluate.Before the extensive use of independent contractors, employers used the threat of layoffs and replacements from the “reserve army of the unemployed” to discourage workers from demanding higher wages and better working conditions or from forming unions. When most of the work formerly done by workers is performed by “independent” contractors, the boss can maneuver so each contractor competes with all the others. The contractor has no fixed jobs and no guarantees, but remains connected to the employer only so long as there is work to be done.In the United States, a former “independent” contractor of Uber’s sued in California to challenge her status and won a judgment from California’s Labor Department that she did indeed work for Uber. Uber will tie the issue up for as long as possible with legal appeals.According to French law, Uber is not permitted to provide service. Uber has told its drivers in France that the company will pay any fines they get. That is Uber’s standard practice when challenging restrictions.To protest Uber’s challenge to their rights as workers, French taxi drivers, with some help from their Belgian co-workers, concentrated on blocking the main routes to the airports. French TV showed well-dressed business people, some in suits, some in high heels, running through the traffic jams pulling their suitcases in order to make their planes.The taxi drivers explained that Uber drivers pay no license fees, carry no insurance protecting their passengers, and don’t have to pass tests on local geography.The drivers resisted the French cops trying to clear their blockades and overturned and burned some Uber cars, after confronting their drivers. (Radio Canada, June 25)Drivers in Quebec also went out on a one-day strike on June 25, but took no steps to block traffic as in France.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
