Shell escapes first ever loss following strong oil trading

first_img Share Ben van Beurden, Royal Dutch Shell chief executive, said: Total saw profit shrink 96 per cent to $126m, considerably ahead of forecasts of a $520m loss. The results However, the results beat analysts’ expectations of a $674m loss for the quarter, which would have marked the first ever quarterly loss for the Anglo-Dutch oil firm.  Shell, the world’s largest retailer with over 40,000 petrol stations, also reported a 39 per cent drop in fuel sales for the period. Lockdowns around the world have knocked global energy demand, with benchmark Brent oil prices falling below $30 a barrel in the second quarter — down by more than half from a year earlier.  Why it’s interesting Shares were down 0.2 per cent to 1,225p in morning trading. High volatility in oil prices throughout the lockdown allowed traders to make large profits by betting on price movements and stocking up on fuel to sell at higher prices in the future.  Despite the slump, the group said that it would maintain its dividend of €0.66 per share this year. The writedown marks a slight bright spot for the firm, after the company warned last month it was set to slash the value of its oil and gas assets by up to $22bn as the coronavirus crisis hollowed out energy demand.  Poppy Wood Thursday 30 July 2020 2:30 pm Shell escapes first ever loss following strong oil trading The better-than-expected results for Shell came after “very strong contributions from crude and oil products trading and optimisation as well as lower operating expenses”, the company said today. whatsappcenter_img The world’s largest oil and gas trader said it saw an unprecedented slump in global demand due to the pandemic, with oil products sales down 39 per cent for the period. The firm said its aviation, retail and refining and trading units took the biggest hit from the virus. Royal Dutch Shell avoided its first ever quarterly loss after strong oil trading helped offset a slump in revenue from its oil and gas operations as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The oil titan said it expects net expenses of $3.2bn to $3.5bn for 2020, as coronavirus continues to weigh on demand. French oil giant Total followed suit as all the world’s major energy firms felt the sting of collapsed oil and gas demand. whatsapp Shell’s adjusted earnings slumped to $600m (£463m) for the three months to June, down from $3.5bn in the same period last year. Shell said it was on track to deliver its cost reduction targets, after it slimmed down its underlying operating expenditure by $1.1bn compared to the first quarter. Shell was quick to respond to the coronavirus crisis, immediately cutting its dividend for the first time the Second World War and cutting planned spending by $5bn to a maximum of $20bn in 2020. Show Comments ▼ Shell also slashed the value of its assets by $16.8bn after lowering its short-term oil and gas price outlook due to slow growth in demand in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. “Shell has delivered resilient cash flow in a remarkably challenging environment. We continue to focus on safe and reliable operations and our decisive cash preservation measures will underpin the strengthening of our balance sheet.Our high-quality integrated portfolio, disciplined execution and forward-looking strategy enable sustained competitive free cash flow generation.” Shell has traditionally weathered global crises due to its large refining operations, whose profit margins are boosted by lower crude oil prices and stronger fuel demand.  The firm plans to announce a major restructuring by the end of the year, as it looks to respond to a shift in global demand as a result of the pandemic.

America’s First Dog Cafe Celebrates Its Grand Opening In Silver Lake

first_imgAnimalsAmerica’s First Dog Cafe Celebrates Its Grand Opening In Silver LakeCare for a latte and a lab? Maybe a macchiato and a Maltese? We’ve got the spot for youBy Emily Goldberg – April 7, 2016884ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItHaven’t we all dreamt of a place where coffee flows like water and puppies frolic freely in our midst? Well guess what: Dreams do come true. Starting today you can get your caffeine and canine fix at Silver Lake’s new Dog Café, the first of its kind in America.For $10, customers can pick up a cup of coffee or tea and head over to the dog lounge, where they can sip while snuggling up with furry friends during a 55-minute reservation. The café is designed to help L.A.’s local shelter pups find their forever homes as all of them are available for adoption. The Dog Cafe’s founder, Sarah Wolfgang, has been an animal activist for much of her life; at 14, she traveled to South Korea and volunteered in canine shelters. She was inspired by popular dog cafés in her home country, but she took issue with the fact that many of those dogs came from puppy mills, according to the Los Angeles Times. After moving to the U.S. in 2014, Wolfgang raised $16,000 on Indiegogo to open her very own dog café. “There are people who believe some dogs are unadoptable,” she told us last year ahead of a “Pup-Up” pop-up event. “I don’t believe that. I think every possible option should be exhausted before euthanization is considered.” Wolfgang’s Dog Café specifically looks for dogs who have been at the shelter the longest and are at the highest risk of being euthanized.The café will provide beverages from Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co. and Dogs Drink Coffee, both of which donate a portion of their proceeds to supporting animal rescues. Retail products for both two-legged and four-legged species will also be available.As if you needed any more incentive to visit this place, consider this: Royce the German Shepard-Chihuahu mix, Twinkie the Cairn Terrier, and Boo the Lab-Boxer mix are all waiting for you to go play with and possibly adopt them. So hurry up and make a reservation.→ The Dog Cafe, 240 N.

Britain’s unemployment rate may have dropped like a stone and growth is stronger than any other country in the G7, but the deficit remains stubbornly high and the chancellor has fallen well short of his promise to eliminate the structural deficit by the end of this parliament.To give us a preview of what the chancellor might say next week and what he should say, a panel of economists and MPs from the Conservatives’ Free Enterprise Group gathered at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) this morning to deliver give their insights.One thing we are very likely to see, however, given George Osborne’s ceaseless media appearances on building sites in a hard hat is several announcements on infrastructure investment. DEFICIT REDUCTIONKwasi Kwarteng, MP for Spelthorne, said the poor performance on deficit reduction was in large part due to poor tax receipts and low wage growth. He added  that most of the low-hanging fruit in terms of spending cuts had already been picked, and tough choices lay ahead.Kwarteng, long an opponent of the idea of ring-fencing departments said after the next election the consensus on areas of spending such as international aid would come under strain.Andrew Sentance, the former member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), said in a pessimistic note that the Autumn Statement we need economically is not the one we are going to get. There was still significant room for spending restraint in the area of welfare, Sentance argued, and cutting unemployment benefits for the under 25s would be a sensible move by the chancellor.The IEA’s own Ryan Bourne pointed out that the UK had not been able to raise more than 38 per cent of GDP in taxes since the 1960s and there needed be a fundamental rethink about what the government should actually do rather than carrying on with departmental “salami slicing”. To cut back on the deficit, Bourne suggested the government should stop trying to expand its role in areas such as social and child care. An expansion of these programmes would in many instances end up as just another form of “middle-class welfare”, according to Bourne. Furthermore, removing ring-fencing of budgets and another comprehensive spending review would also help bring a more balanced approach to deficit reduction.On the other end of the age spectrum, Bourne said the government’s triple lock pension scheme had been a “costly mistake” and pensioners needed to share in the burden of deficit reduction. TAX REFORMThe tax system was in the sights of all the panellists. Sentance said the priority for low earners should be to lift the threshold for National Insurance Contributions, so they are more aligned with the personal allowance. Sentance went on to argue there should be a “bonfire” of exemptions and allowances to make room for the lowering of tax rates.He added that Britain hadn’t had a real tax-reforming chancellor since the days of Nigel Lawson, and that the tax system still reflected an era before the most recent wave of globalisation. These sentiments were echoed by Bourne, who said the equalisation, and/or merging of NICs and the personal allowance, could be a positive step forward.He added that the government needed to go much further in tackling the crippling marginal tax rates many face in their interaction with tax credits and other income support schemes. Iain Duncan Smith’s universal credit is making some steps in this direction.Tory MP Mark Garnier, a member of the Treasury Select Committee, highlighted the need to give “certainty” to risk takers and entrepreneurs over the top rate of tax. GOVERNMENT REFORM AND THE EUGarnier insisted that while the EU had many faults, what was needed, above all, was certainly  Britain’s approach to Europe. One of the reasons London was so highly prized by the financial services industry was its access to the single market, Garnier argued.One area where Osborne could make decent savings and significantly increase the efficiency of government, Sentance suggested, was merging government departments. He said we should move to a situation where there were only 10-12 government departments.  last_img read more

News / More boxes but lower rates adds up to a massive loss for Hapag-Lloyd in 2013

first_imgBy Mike Wackett 26/03/2014 Germany’s Hapag-Lloyd’s financial performance in 2013 fell “well short” of expectations, with the ocean carrier reporting a €97.4m (US$134m) loss – the consequence of carrying more containers at lower rates.Revenue slipped from €6.8bn in 2012 to €6.6bn last year, with the average freight rate falling to $1,482 per teu against the $1,581 achieved in 2012.Outgoing chairman Michael Behrendt blamed the continued market “irrationality” which, he bemoaned, Hapag-Lloyd had been “unable to avoid”.Clearly however, Hapag-Lloyd was not prepared to concede market share during the 2013 rate war, as evidenced by its increase in transported volumes to 5.5m teu, versus the 5.25m teu carried the previous year. Moreover, in the fiercest arena of battle, the Asia-Europe tradelane, Hapag-Lloyd carried 9% more containers.But Asia-Europe was not the only problematic trade for the carrier. The narrative repeated itself on all five of its routes, with average revenue per teu declining across the board, caused by the cascading of larger tonnage and resulting in overcapacity.Reading through the carrier’s 220-page annual report, it is difficult to see any reason for optimism among Hapag-Lloyd’s shareholders in 2014 – particularly when they read the Risk and Opportunity Report section.It says: “Some of the competitors are larger than Hapag-Lloyd in respect of business volume, fleet size, transport volume and capacities. Others have better capital resources. This means that these competitors can be better positioned on the market to achieve economies of scale and are able to invest in more efficient vessels.”Hapag-Lloyd has done what it can to match the economy of scale advantages of some of its competitors by ordering ten 13,200teu ships – the final three of this series being about to be deployed on Asia-Europe – but the finance requirement has spiked its year-on-year debt from €1.8bn to €2.47bn, and its gearing to 84.7% from the previous year’s 58.2%.Indeed, according to the 2014 Container Shipping Outlook from financial analyst AlixPartners, Hapag-Lloyd and its peers’ investment in ultra-large, economy-of-scale containerships is “both the cause and the effect” of the financial pressure the carriers now find themselves under.Meanwhile, after its failed courtship with compatriot Hamburg Sud, Hapag-Lloyd is now in the midst of due diligence in its acquisition of the container assets of CSAV – which the Chilean carrier prefers to call a merger.Hapag-Lloyd said the proposed “takeover” of CSAV – which would result in CSAV taking a 30% stake in the larger group – would propel it from sixth to the fourth largest ocean carrier, “bringing us within striking distance of the three largest shipping companies”, and making it the market leader in South America.Nevertheless, assuming the deal goes through, there will be much work to do to achieve the cost-saving synergies needed to turn a profit for the new combined entity, given that CSAV is also loss-making: it posted a $169m loss for 2013.last_img read more
