Quindell faces yet more legal action as investors open claim

first_imgShareholders are bringing legal action against Watchstone Group PLC, formerly Quindell, the AIM-listed company embroiled in one of the most contentious acquisition deals in legal sector history.Investors claim that they suffered losses as a result of misleading statements or omissions in Quindell’s representations to the London Stock Exchange which wrongly suggested the company was in good financial health.The claim alleges that Quindell provided misleading information and/or failed to disclose material facts to its auditors and that it overstated its revenues and profits, among other things.The claims will be brought pursuant to section 90A of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, which provides a remedy for misstatements and omissions by listed companies. Specialist litigation firm Harcus Parker sent a letter before action to Watchstone today.Last month, Watchstone settled Slater and Gordon’s £637m claim hours before a trial was due to begin. Slater and Gordon was suing the company for the full value of its 2015 acquisition – a purchase which was followed by a plunge in profits and the collapse of its parent company’s share price. Watchstone said it had spent around £6.6m on legal costs fighting the case.Watchstone was countersuing for £63m, arguing the acquisition was under-valued because of issues with disclosure in the build-up to the deal.A Serious Fraud Office investigation into Quindell is ongoing and the Financial Reporting Council has sanctioned two firms of auditors over their conduct in relation to the company’s accounts.Jennifer Morrissey, a partner at Harcus Parker, said: ‘We are rapidly building a cohort of shareholders who suffered significant losses when the share price collapsed when the truth started coming out, and we hope Watchstone will recognise the failures of its predecessor and compensate them without the need for a drawn-out legal fight.’A source close to Watchstone said the company ‘plans to vigorously defend itself against all such claims as appropriate’.last_img read more

Updated Ducati Multistrada 950 Spotted Testing

first_imgSources say it may also receive an IMU. The Ducati Multistrada 950 is a more accessible option to Ducati’s sport-tourer line-up in both pricing and operations.Compared to its big brother the Multistrada 1260, the Multistrada 950 is much simpler. Riders do not have to contend with fiddling around with the electronics, that’s for sure. Indeed, we have come across many riders who don’t have any idea on what they’ve set on their bikes.Apart from that, the 950’s 113bhp power output is certainly easier to handle than the 158 bhp on the 1260.So, the Multistrada 950 is in some ways a better and more versatile bike. But it’s definitely time for an update to keep it in the game.Just as so, MCN spotted an updated Multistrada 950 undergoing road tests.The upper fairing now matches the Multistrada 1260’s and swingarm is of lighter grey than the current version.The engine looks similar outwardly, but the new bike will apparently receive a new hydraulic clutch. The Scrambler has gone that way, so we expect the Multistrada to follow suit. The engine may also be updated since there is a new Hypermotard on the way. If so, we ought to see a power increase to 120 bhp. There could be a bi-directional quickshifter, too.The new Multistrada 950 may well receive an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), enabling Cornering ABS and lean-sensitive traction control. These will open up the bike’s safety spectrum together with the present ride modes.–Ads– An updated Ducati Multistrada 950 has been spotted.center_img The new bike should include a number of new features.last_img read more

Immaculate set to impress at Champs 2019

first_imgImmaculate Conception High School is known mostly for its academic achievements, but the school from Constant Spring Road has enjoyed good results in track and field in the past, finishing third in 1999 at the Girls’ Championships with several top-five finishes to their credit as well.After seeing their performances drop for several years, the school, which has produced the likes of Danielle Jeffrey, Samantha Elliot, Misha Gaye Dacosta, and Jeanine Williams, is once again on the rise and come March 26-30 at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Athletics Championships, they should be one of the top teams from the Corporate Area with a top-10 finish a likely outcome. This would represent improvement on their 12th-place effort last year.Immaculate has been very competitive in the lower classes all season, including at the Gibson McCook Relays, where they had top-three finishes in Class Three and Four 4x100m relays. They cemented their good form with with an impressive showing at the recent Digicel/Anthrick Corporate Area Development Meet, where they finished a good second behind Excelsior High . “It was a wonderful experience for the girls, and they are all thrilled with this, and it is a confidence-booster for them going into the Championships in two weeks,” said Franz Ford, who has guided the track and field programme for the past eight years. “We are expecting a good show from all the girls, especially the younger ones, as they are giving signals, and we are trying to develop from Class Four right up,” said Ford. “It is very difficult for us to have a strong senior unit because by the time our girls reach sixth form, they do leave so we lose most of them in Class Two or first year Class One.” Armstrong creating waves One of his charges this year in Jounee Armstrong, who is creating waves among Class Four athletes after producing some of the best results in 100m, 200m, long and high jump in the class and was in immaculate form at the Corporate Area Championships, winning the 200m and the long jump. In the long jump, she produced an eye-popping 5.85 metres – the longest-ever distance by a Class Four athlete.“Jounee is a hard worker. She is coming from Vaz Prep, where she had a very good coach, and I am just adding to what he had done. She is not a hard athlete to deal with. She takes instructions very well, and the sky’s the limit for her,” Ford said.He also expects good performances from the likes of Lori Choy in the long and high jumps along with Misha-Jade Samuels in the high jump in Class Four, Onanda Lowe and Gabrielle Lyn in Class Three sprints, Hughasia Fyffe in the sprints in Class Three, Danielle Sloley in the throws in Class One, and team captain Shantelle Riley in Class One sprints. Ford is definitely aiming for a top-10 finish at Champs this time around.“Last year, we finished 12th with 37 points, and our aim was to hit the 80 points mark, but that did not work out as planned, and we want to do so this time, and wherever that puts us, we will be quite content with that as it’s about small steps at a time as we do not have a big squad, but we do have quality girls,” said Ford. “I am calling on our old girls and supporters to come out and give the girls your support as the athletes have been feeling the support all year long, and we want them to continue doing so because they really like to hear their voices in the crowd. This really helps to motivate them.”last_img read more

Florida jumped from No. 22 to No. 14. “Put it on me,” LSU coach Ed Orgeron said. “It’s always going to be my fault. Give them the credit when we win. When we lose, it’s always my fault. I’m the boss. I’ve got to get them better, and that’s it.” LSU linebacker Devin White, a former North Webster star, didn’t see it the same way.“It’s not on him, because he’s not out there playing,” said White, who finished with 9 tackles, including 1.5 for loss. “We had a great game plan. It’s on us, because we didn’t execute it. I’ll never let Coach put it on him when we’re the ones out there playing. They spend countless hours putting everything together. All we have to do is go out there and execute it.”With 11:14 remaining, LSU took a 19-14 lead after running back Nick Brossette’s second touchdown of the game.

A question about team names

first_imgAll Activity 0 Sports Logo News In general terms, the answer is an unequivocal “No.”Think about it – does Boston Market have to shell out to the city of New York because they have locations there? Of course not. Pro sports teams are no different…UNLESS…they have a contractual agreement that stipulates the team will have a specific name, such as the Angels deal with the City of Anaheim to use their stadium.

The ownership wanted to move in more on the greater Los Angeles market, though, and tried to weasel out of the deal. It resulted in the ridiculous Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim moniker, which satisfied the courts somehow. 0 Posted September 22, 2006 0 0 Share this post Posted September 23, 2006 Share on other sites Link to post 0 528 posts Location:Michigan Mac the Knife 6,091 posts Link to post Share on other sites 0 0 Share on other sites 65 Location:Bloody Eighth.
