Manchester will recover, but some victims will not. Don't forget them

The message we hear is of cleaning up, carrying on, rebuilding – but for a few people life will never return to normalIt was an unusually beautiful day in Manchester, not a cloud in a deep blue sky, when that huge IRA bomb blasted the heart of the city 21 years ago; and this week when terror struck it turned out eerily sunny again. But as the devastating news of so many deaths and injuries hit on Tuesday, and people made their way quietly along Cross Street to the evening vigil held in Albert Square, the differences from what happened last time were dreadfully clear.Back then, on a busy Saturday, 15 June 1996, the explosives in a truck parked outside Marks & Spencer wreaked astonishing damage to buildings, but there was a warning, and 75,000 people were evacuated. Although people suffered injuries, some of them serious, from the debris and glass that rained beyond the cordon, miraculously nobody was killed. The Mancunian pride and make-a-brew spirit that has been broadcast to the world this week could get on with a story which has become straightforward in the telling since: clean up, carry on, rebuild.

Is M&S being radical enough as it slips out of fashion? | Nils Pratley

The retailer is to axe 10% of the space devoted to its struggling clothing and homewares – but the market is moving onMarks & Spencer’s share price has improved 10% since Archie Norman, lately of ITV and once of Asda, was named as the next chairman earlier this month. This show of faith in one non-executive is remarkable, but one can almost understand why it’s happened.After a decade of modernisation programmes under former chief executives Stuart Rose and Marc Bolland – and another five years in prospect under Steve Rowe – poor old M&S shareholders must be crying out for a proven outsider’s analysis of where it’s all leading, and how quickly. Since 2012, M&S has clocked up an astonishing £890m in “adjustments to reported profit”, of which the latest £437m is the biggest contributor. Needless to say, the adjustments have all been downwards. Continue reading...

Британский ритейлер Marks & Spencer Group (M&S) отчитался о превысившей прогнозы аналитиков годовой доналоговой прибыли благодаря успешным результатам подразделения пищевых продуктов, а также снижению издержек, компенсировавшим неудачи направления по продаже одежды.

При этом, в четвертом квартале сопоставимые продажи подразделения по продаже одежды и товаров для дома снизились на 5,9%, тогда как аналитики в среднем ожидали снижения лишь на 3,7%.

M&S profits dive by nearly two-thirds as clothing sales slide

Retailer’s pre-tax profits plunge to £176.4m as it is hit by £400m restructuring costs arising from turnaround planMarks & Spencer has reported a 64% drop in annual profits to £176.4m as weak clothing sales were compounded by more than £400m of restructuring costs relating to the new chief executive’s turnaround plan.Chief executive Steve Rowe insisted the retailer was on the road to recovery despite a worsening sales performance in both its clothing and food aisles in the last three months of the financial year. “We do remain on track,” he said. “We’ve made some costly but necessary decisions, so profits are down but they are in line with expectations.” Continue reading...

Marks & Spencer to report slump in clothing sales after short-lived boost

Disappointing clothing sales will be revealed on Wednesday alongside sharp fall in annual profits despite Christmas bumpMarks & Spencer will report a fresh slump in clothing sales on Wednesday after a revival at Christmas proved short-lived.The disappointing finish to the year will be revealed alongside a sharp fall in annual profits. Hopes that M&S chief executive Steve Rowe had come up with a winning formula for the UK’s biggest clothing retailer were raised after it recorded its first underlying growth in nearly two years over the key festive quarter. But with rivals such as Next reporting moribund sales as rising living costs force Britons to tighten their belts, M&S’s clothing and homewares sales are expected to have tumbled more than 3% in the first three months of 2017. Its food business is also expected to post a small decline in underlying sales. Continue reading...

Marks & Spencer’s underwear is level at 30,000 feet

M&S’s board seem absorbed by a study that finds many Britons ‘stuck on autopilot’ in their daily lives. But the retailer itself may be changing courseBritons are trapped in autopilot mode with 61% sticking to the same, familiar patterns.That was the slightly bizarre line pulled from a study being punted around by Marks & Spencer earlier this month, as it took time off from running a clothing business that for 133 years has largely stuck to familiar patterns.

The sisters of Battle Road: ‘We didn’t need anyone else as children, or now’

Being evacuated and then left motherless brought the six Jarman sisters close together. Nearly 80 years on, the bond is still unbreakableTwice a week, at the Marks & Spencer cafe on Eltham High Street in south-east London, Mary Marshall meets her sisters, Joan, Sheila, Kath, Pat and Anne.“They all know us in there,” says Mary. “It can be loud. We do have our rows. Someone came up to us once and said, ‘What was all that about?’ I said, ‘Oh, nothing.

Adam Crozier will leave ITV looking a picture of health

Broadcaster faces tougher ad market and streaming rivals but was in a much worse position when its chief executive joinedAdam Crozier, it could be said, is leaving ITV at a good moment for him. The business has been reinvented from its basket-case status in 2010 but now faces a tougher advertising market and the march of Netflix, Amazon and whoever comes next. Up to a point, that’s correct. ITV’s advertising revenues fell last year for the first time since 2009 and the US arrivals have deep pockets and grand ambitions. But there’s another way to view the screen: ITV has overcome bigger hurdles.Back in 2010, the company carried so much debt it couldn’t afford to pay a dividend. It made few programmes that sold abroad and Sky and YouTube were the existential threats of the day. The City despaired. It thought a rescue rights issue was inevitable and analysts promoted the drastic remedy of ditching programme making and becoming a pure broadcaster that would buy in all its content.

Eurozone GDP growth and UK construction reports – business live

They’ve lost almost 3%, after the supermarket chain reported that profits fell to £503m in the last 12 months, down from £548m a year earlier.“Argos has so far proved an effective ‘get out of jail’ card for Sainsbury’s. But with inflation biting into consumer spending and the latest retail sales figures showing that the consumption boom is waning, Sainsbury’s must get its core business in order before it comes off its catalogue crutches.” Continue reading...

Основные фондовые индексы Европы растут

Европейские рынки растут во вторник, так как инвесторы оценивали свежие отчеты о доходах и ожидали предстоящих президентских выборов во Франции. Общеевропейский индекс Stoxx 600 поднялся на 0,13 процента, при этом большинство секторов и крупные биржи торгуются на положительной территории. Нефтегазовый сектор Европы был самым успешным в начале утренних сделок на фоне новостей о доходах. BP переместилась в верхнюю часть индекса после того, как ее прибыль почти утроилась в первом квартале по сравнению с предыдущим годом. Во вторник утром акции BP выросли на 2,4 процента. Лондонский онлайн-ритейлер Ocado оказался во главе европейского индекса во вторник на фоне сообщений о том, что фирма изучает возможность слияния с Marks & Spencer. Акции компании поднялись более чем на 7 процентов в начале утренних торгов . Два политических соперника во время президентской гонки во Франции обменялись критикой в ​​начале последней недели агитации в понедельник. Кандидат от ультраправых Марин Ле Пен напала на центриста ЕС Эммануэля Макрона как на «кандидата на преемственность», в то время как последний настаивал, что он будет бороться «до последней секунды», чтобы победить лидера Национального фронта. Французские граждане будут выбирать нового премьера во втором туре голосования в воскресенье. Президент США Дональд Трамп заявил, что для него будет честью встретиться с лидером Северной Кореи Ким Чен Уном в интервью Bloomberg News в понедельник. Однако Белый дом предположил, что многие условия необходимо будет соблюсти для того, чтобы два лидера назначили встречу. В то же время фондовые индексы США закрылись в понедельник главным образом ростом, не отреагировав на комментарии Трампа, который говорил о развале крупных банков. Ралли, которое отправило Nasdaq на рекордно высокий уровень закрытия, поддержало европейские активы, которые возобновили торги после майского праздника в понедельник. В другом месте канцлер Германии Ангела Меркель намерена встретиться с президентом России Владимиром Путиным в Сочи, во вторник. Встреча происходит в то время, когда двусторонние отношения между Берлином и Москвой находятся на низком уровне в связи с войной в Сирии и аннексией Россией Крыма.

Hummus 'crisis' sheds light on secret world of mass food production

After a brief recall, tubs are back on shelves. But have retailers learned a lesson about the wisdom of diversifying their supply chain? Inside a cluster of unremarkable industrial units off the A40 in west London is the epicentre of the 2017 hummus crisis. The buildings belong to Bakkavor, the international food manufacturer behind the mass withdrawal of the product from British supermarket shelves after customers complained of a metallic taste.These units off the Hanger Lane gyratory system – among 30 facilities on 19 different UK sites – manufacture hummus and other dips on an industrial scale for supermarket giants including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, the Co-op, Asda and Morrisons, who sell them under their own brands.
