Transport unions RMT and the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) were locked in negotiations with LU for more than four hours at conciliation service Acas yesterday.

The ITM Power share price is falling. Should I buy?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” ITM Power (LSE: ITM) has lost over 30% of its value this year. While the ITM Power share price is still 30% higher than it was a year ago, clearly the stock has lost momentum.Here’s my take on why – and whether I’d buy ITM Power for my portfolio at the moment.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Slow progressOne of the things I think has negatively impacted the ITM Power share price is its relatively slow rate of progress in scaling up commercial operations.Take this month’s trading update as an example. On one hand, it seemed full of exciting news. From a new gigawatt factory opened this year to a 62% increase in work in progress compared to a year before, it’s easy to understand why some investors see strong growth potential.On the other hand, revenue for the past year is expected to come in at £4m. That fairly small turnover is much lower than the work in progress number, partly because such work is spread over years. It’s also a sharp fall from the prior year, when revenue was £5.4m. The company was negatively affected by the pandemic, but the revenue fall is still a disappointment.No sign of profitabilityITM Power expects to announce a loss for the year, even before factoring in costs such as interest and amortisation. That doesn’t surprise me as the company has been consistently loss-making. In the prior year, the company’s loss more than tripled to £29.4m. While we don’t yet know the scale of the loss for the most recent 12 months, I expect it to be substantial. The gigawatt factory alone likely involved considerable expenditure.With liquidity of £176m at year-end, the company can sustain losses for some time. It’s also common for early stage technology companies to lose money. Developing batteries can be expensive, and it takes time to find a commercial model to sell them. The new factory should help provide production capacity if ITM Power is able to ramp up sales.Valuation concernsWith a technology platform, growing operations and substantial liquidity, there seems to be some value in ITM Power. So why have its shares been moving downwards?I think the issue is not about whether the company has value – but how much it has. Even after the ITM Power share price fall, its market cap still exceeds £2bn. That is a heady amount for a company whose annual revenues are just a few million pounds.My next move on the ITM Power share priceI think the company has been making progress. From a growing backlog of work to a sizeable pipeline, there are signs of commercial success. The new factory should make it easier to keep growing.But I think a lot of hope is riding on a small amount of proven success. The company has a valuation that makes me see it more as speculation than investment. Risks abound here. The company could further dilute shareholders to boost liquidity, as it did last year. A new factory often takes time to function properly, so production quality may take a while to get right. The battery space is crowded and competitors could squeeze the industry’s profit margins.With so many variables, ITM Power is not a share I would buy now for my portfolio.

Top 14: High Noon

first_imgThe script may still have a final act to run. The game against Pau will be Noon’s 100th for Brive and all his family are coming over from England for the occasion. And among the 35,000-strong crowd in Bordeaux’s Stade Chaban-Delmas will be most of Brive, all willing Noon to go out on a high. not for featured Tearaway: former England centre Jamie Noon will hang up his boots at the end of this seasonBy Gavin Mortimer IT’S A funny old game, rugby, as Jamie Noon will testify. Son of Yorkshire, servant of Newcastle and now stalwart of Brive, the former England centre brings down the curtain on his professional career on Sunday, in Bordeaux of all places, about as far removed from Goole as you could wish to find. True, they’re both ports, but there’s not much sun, and even less wine, in the Yorkshire town where Noon was born 34 years ago.May day: young Falcon MayThe fact that he’s bowing out in Bordeaux, playing for Brive against Pau in the Pro2 play-off final, is proof of how far Noon has come – literally and metaphorically – since he first pulled on a Newcastle shirt in the late 1990s. Back then Noon was one of the Falcons’ young guns, that posse of precocious talent which included Jonny Wilkinson, Michael Stephenson, Dave Walder and Tom May. Now fifteen years of life as a professional sportsmen is about to end, and Noon is honest enough to admit he’s approaching the next phase of his life with more than a little trepidation. “I’m nervous,” he says. “As a professional rugby player you train, prepare and play, so you always know more or less what to expect out of life. Now I’m about to go into the unknown, trying to get a job against guys who are younger and carry degrees and other qualifications. I’m 34, with three young children to feed, so yes, definitely I’m nervous. On the plus side, however, as a professional sportsmen you live off a fierce competitive spirit, so I hope I can use that to flourish in a different arena.”Noon has plans, ambitious ones that are as bold as the manner in which he has graced the game for these past fifteen years. “I’m looking to become an agent,” he says, adding that he’s in the throes of obtaining his licence. But Noon wants to be more than just an agent. He aims to put his own vast experience to good use by mentoring young players as they make the transition from youth academy to professional club.Noon intends to remain in France, advising British and Irish players looking to move across the Channel while also taking aspiring French youngsters under his wing. There are opportunities to be had in France as club rugby continues to soar, ideal for a man who is now an unabashed Francophile. “It’s funny how it’s worked out,” he explains. “The kids (his three children are aged eight, six and four) found it really tough at first. There were a lot of tears and getting them to go to school each morning was hard. Now they love it. They’ve really adapted to the French way of life and my wife and I decided we couldn’t uproot them and take them back to England.”Noon loves the lifestyle, too, comparing the countryside around the rural town of Brive to that of his native Yorkshire, populated by a similar people with little pretension but an abundance of warmth. Noon has felt much of that warmth from the moment he arrived at Brive in the summer of 2009. He came with a big reputation, a hard-running centre with 38 England caps, just one of a number of English players recruited by Brive, among whom were Steve Thompson, Andy Goode, Shaun Perry and Riki Flutey.Super 10: Goode times at BriveReflecting on his first season at Brive (which resulted in Noon winning the coaches’ Player of the Year award), he says what helped him through was his philosophy. “I came with an open mind from the start. I struggled for the first couple of months but whereas some of the (English) boys got stressed and annoyed by certain things, I just thought I might as well go the French way. For eleven years in England I’d been really strict in my approach but in Brive I started drinking coffee – something we couldn’t do at Newcastle – and instead of living on brown pasta, rice and boiled chicken, I started eating what the French ate, which included steaks and a lot of cheese.”Whereas some of Noon’s fellow Englishmen were never able to bridge the difference in cultures, he thrived in his new environment, earning the respect and admiration of team-mates and fans as a consequence. Fitting, then, that it was Noon who scored the decisive try in Brive’s win against Aurillac last weekend, a victory that secured them the right to challenge Pau on Sunday for a place in next season’s Top 14.“That was a special moment,” reflects Noon. “It couldn’t have been better scripted, coming on for my last home game and scoring a try with my first touch that took us through to the final.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The Giant Sleepover was the idea of Steve Malkin, 38-year old father of three from Sevenoaks Weald in Kent. “It is a free-to-enter event, designed to be fun for kids and an annual fundraising event for parent teacher associations and volunteers from scout and guide groups,” he explained. “There is so much pressure on parents, teachers and scout leaders to raise funds, we wanted to create an event that they could tap into and make their life a bit easier. We sent out an Organiser’s Sleepover Guide Pack and a Treasure Chest full of free products for each sleepover. We have been overwhelmed with the response and success and hope to make the event even bigger in 2005.” The Giant Sleepover was supported by sponsors including Sainsbury’s Blue Parrot Café healthy food range, Tomy’s fast-paced Rummikub numeracy game, Aero Products self-inflating beds, Top Tumps and the Twits Roald Dahl card games by Winning Moves, Lil’ Moo Organic Cheese from Dairy Crest, Capri Sun Juice, Fridgeplay, Sheraton Hotels and Thames Water.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A new Guinness World Record for the Biggest Sleepover has been established this weekend by school children, Scouts and Girl Guides taking part in the Giant Sleepover fundraising event.Four hundred and sixty one sleepovers took place in school and Scout halls across the UK from 6pm on Saturday 19 through to 9am on Sunday 20 June with an estimated 12,000 children sleeping over.
