Aston Martin (LSE: AML) announced its intention to go public in the third quarter of 2018. At the time, I was cautiously optimistic on the outlook for the shares. The booming demand for luxury products, the company’s global expansion plans and growth ambitions were all attractive qualities.However, I was worried about the firm’s lack of financial stability. Before its IPO, the organisation had declared bankruptcy no less than seven times. Unfortunately, it looks to me as if the company is on the same path once again.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…Living up to expectationsAston Martin’s expansion plans have not lived up to expectations. Demand growth for its most profitable products has been lower than expected, and the company has failed to capitalise on the luxury product boom.Since its IPO in 2018, Aston Martin has lurched from disaster to disaster. The stock price has crumbled, and investors have fled. The company has staked its future on a new vehicle, the DBX. This unique sports utility vehicle is being built at a new facility in Wales.It has taken longer to develop than expected and while the company has already received 1,800 pre-orders, it’s starting to look increasingly unlikely that this new product will save the business.Moreover, as Aston Martin has pushed ahead developing the DBX, legacy vehicle sales have not lived up to expectations. As a result, profits have fallen and cash flow has declined substantially.Growing debtsIt now looks as if Aston is in something of a downward spiral. The company has spent much of the past six months scrambling to raise finance to keep the lights on.In September of last year, it raised $150m of high-interest debt, with the option to borrow a further $100m if orders for the DBX hit 1,400. The cost of this additional debt: 15%.To try and allay concerns about its financial position, Aston Martin has now put together a £500m rescue deal, led by Canadian Formula 1 billionaire Lawrence Stroll. Under the terms of the deal, Mr Stroll will inject £182m for a stake of 16.7%. A further £318m will come from a rights issue after the company’s results next month. This deal means the firm won’t have to draw down the extra $100m debt tranche. No quick fixThe stock jumped by more than a fifth after the company announced this deal on Friday. It seems the market likes the sound of this rescue package. However, I’m not convinced. Aston Martin has burnt through its cash reserves rapidly since the company’s IPO. Therefore, there’s no guarantee that this latest fundraising will be the last. As part of the deal, the company is going to try to reduce costs. It is also going to delay investments into a suite of electric vehicles. Previously, management wanted to get these to the market by 2022. The date has now been pushed back to 2025. With the world rapidly moving away from the internal combustion engine, this could mean that Aston Martin is left behind. Therefore, it might be better to avoid the Aston Martin share price for the time being. Only time will tell if the latest fundraising can stabilise the business so it might be better for investors to stay on the sidelines for the time being. Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

“He is a quality player, his knowledge of the game and his leadership qualities have been very important to us.“It is sad to see his career come to an end due to his knee injury, but we all wish him well in the future and he will always be welcome here.” He was part of Tigers’ Premiership-winning squads of 2009 and 2010, started the Heineken Cup Final in 2009 and collected an LV= Cup winner’s medal in 2012. He also captained the team at the 2011 Aviva Premiership Final at Twickenham.Looking to the future, Newby said: “I’ve made some good mates in England. I love living here and that is something I want to continue to do.“I would like to stay in rugby in some capacity, and coaching does appeal to me.“I’ve worked with a lot of good coaches and top-class players in my career, and I would like to think I have picked up a knowledge of the game that I would like to pass on in a coaching capacity somewhere.”Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “Newbs has been a key member of the squad in his four full seasons at the club.

There have been a lot of highlights.“Outside the rugby, the thing that stands out for me is that, although the club is a big business, it is also like a big family and everyone is very welcoming.”Newby marked his Leicester debut against Sale Sharks in October 2008 by drop-kicking a conversion of a last-minute try by Brett Deacon, and was also successful in the historic shoot-out in the 2009 Heineken Cup semi-final against Cardiff Blues at the Millennium Stadium. He also scored three tries for the club.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is spearheading a 10-month scheme that will pair fundraisers with one another to share experiences and learn new skills, kicked off with a Fundraising Mentoring Incubator event attended by fundraisers from ten charities this month.The project aims to help develop knowledge and expertise across the sector. 58 participants have joined the programme from Action on Hearing Loss, Age UK, Barnardo’s, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Breast Cancer Care, The Children’s Society, Crisis, Diabetes UK, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Teach First. The programme is free of charge and open to fundraisers at any level or specialism, from Assistants to Directors.During the first introduction meeting, fundraisers met each other and selected a mentor who they will stay in touch with over the coming months. Mentors and mentees are now free to determine how often they do meet up, but have been equipped with a toolkit to help support them and ensure they get the most out of the programme.Battersea’s Learning & Development Advisor Juliet Lambe devised the programme. She said:“We know there is so much knowledge and experience across the sector and this scheme is all about opening up communication channels between charities and giving fundraisers a support network outside of their own organisation. At our introductory meeting it was great to see so much enthusiasm within the room, with people sharing their ideas, getting a new perspective on the challenges they face, and for many, gaining a confidence boost from talking through their experiences and gaining reassurance they are on the right track.”“Participants will be given the flexibility to meet whenever they choose, and a slack channel has been set up for the group to share learnings, so that everyone has a wider group to connect with. We’ll be bringing everyone together to evaluate the success of the scheme in July 2018.”Anthony Galsworthy, Relationship Manager at Teach First, said: Advertisement Battersea Dogs & Cats Home connects fundraisers with mentoring programme AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 Melanie May | 12 October 2017 | News 109 total views, 1 views today “The overwhelming feeling amongst my peers was that this was such an inspiring event and one of the best organised events we’d attended.

Radio – last bulwark of media freedom and independence News Follow the news on Laos Organisation Young Laotian blogger gets five years in prison RSF_en July 4, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No concrete progress after one month in detention to go further Journalists Thierry Falise of Belgium and Vincent Reynaud of France completed a month in detention in Laos today. They are now in Phontong prison in Vientiane, which is reserved for foreigners, having been transferred there after their trial on 30 June. The Thierry Falise and Vincent Reynaud Support Committee is pleased to note that the Laotian ambassadors to France and Belgium recently said the two journalists and their American interpreter could be released soon. The Laotian ambassador to Belgium additionally said today to Falise family members and a Reporters Without Borders representative that the three could be pardoned and freed before 13 July. The committee awaits concrete progress towards their release.Meanwhile, the Committee is concerned by the visit to Paris on 8 July of the Laotian information and culture minister, who is to be received by UNESCO and the French senate. He is the minister in charge of supervising news reporting in Laos. As such, he represents those authorities who monitor and punish people like Falise and Reynaud who try to work freely as journalists.The Committee continues to campaign for the unconditional release as soon as possible of Falise, Reynaud and those who were working with them. In the meantime, the Committee calls for an improvement in their conditions of detention: a more spacious cell, regular exercise periods, and weekly visits by their wives and by diplomats.Statements of protest and support for the two journalists have been pouring in ever since their trial. More than 13,000 people have already signed the online petition on the Committee’s website.The European Parliament yesterday adopted a resolution calling for the immediate release of the two European journalists and condemning the deterioration of the human rights situation in Laos.The Committee calls on Belgian and French diplomats to redouble their efforts to obtain the release of the two journalists, their American interpreter and the Laotians who were accompanying them.The website’s address is http://www.free-falise-and-reynaud.com . It has an online petition and a fund for the support of the families.Background:Belgian reporter Thierry Falise, a regular contributor to the French news weekly L’Express, and French cameraman Vincent Reynaud were arrested on 4 June in the northeastern province of Xieng Khuang with their interpreter, Rev. Naw Karl Mua, an American of Hmong origin, and four Laotians. They were finishing a documentary about the Hmong minority at the time of their arrest. The Laotian authorities sentenced them on 30 June to 15 years in prison for “obstructing the exercise of authority.” The ambassadors of their respective countries and their wives were able to see them yesterday. They are in good health but have requested better conditions of detention.
