Analysts were expecting the company to report revenue of £233.8m and pre-tax profit of £21.2m, according to a company-supplied consensus of seven brokers.Chief executive Harriet Green said the results reflected “the continued progress in our strategy”.Shares in Premier Farnell gained 7.3 per cent to close 17.5p up at 257.1p.

Wednesday 2 February 2011 7:39 pm KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Vodafone and Essar are no closer to resolving their long-running dispute, with both sides hiring separate investment banks to examine the value of the Indian firm’s stake in the joint venture. Vodafone is furious that Essar is planning to merge one third of its 33 per cent stake in the joint venture into public listed company India Securities. Vodafone believes the move might be a ploy to artificially inflate the stake’s value as a precursor to selling it, with Essar saying it will reveal its true value.When Vodafone acquired a 67 per cent stake in Vodafone Essar for $11.1bn (£6.85bn)?in 2007, it gave Essar two options over its stake. The first allows it to sell the entire stake to Vodafone for $5bn. The second allows Essar to sell between $1bn and $5bn worth of Vodafone Essar shares at a “fair market value”.Essar says it plans to press ahead with its plans for the stake despite Vodafone’s objections.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tech & innovation Roo Wright, the CEO and founder of affiliate compliance software provider Wag.io, has targeted a century of brand sign-ups by the end of the year after sealing a partnership with LeoVegas.LeoVegas will use the Wag.io software to manage its compliance in line with regulations set out by the Advertising Standards Authority and the Gambling Commission.Wright told iGamingBusiness.com that affiliate compliance is becoming an increasingly hot topic for operators due to heightened scrutiny from lobbyists and organisations such as the Campaign for Fairer Gambling in the UK.“We are talking to the whole industry and are targeting having over 100 brands on board by the end of the year,” said Wright (pictured), who has developed Wag.io from the ground up over the past 18 months.“I would say that there is not a single operator that has all their affiliates in compliance. The task of cleaning up as an industry is not an easy one and even once a programme has affiliates in line there are always new promotions and updates that need to be tracked.”Wag.io will help LeoVegas to manage affiliates through a specific system, whilst identifying opportunities through new and existing affiliates and monitoring affiliate activities, including deals and promotional materials. The software will also generate communication and activity reports, establishing a paper trail.Wag.io can also be used to help brands manage GDPR data protection compliance in relation to affiliate management.LeoVegas sales and compliance executive Matthew Curmi said that the software will help the operator “to constantly monitor and review the ads and marketing materials our affiliates are using”.He added: “While our goal is to be fully compliant, when an error is found, we can use the app to rapidly reach out to our affiliates about making an immediate correction.”Earlier this week, LeoVegas established its LeoSafePlay responsible gambling initiative as a standalone business unit. LeoVegas has also reshuffled its management team, with Richard Woodbridge set to arrive in 2019 as the company’s new chief operating officer.

The story of Falatow Jigiyaso orphanage begins in Bamako. In 1978, Fatoumata Goundourou found an orphan baby in the street and brought him home. From now on, her house will become a shelter for no less than 30 children of all ages.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaIn 2010, the mayor of the city of Fresnes (south of Paris) – Jean-Jacques Bridey – was told by some of his citizens of Fatoumata’s story. Then he went to Mali to meet Fatoumata and decided to build a proper orphanage in Dialakoroba (50 km south of Bamako).Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe orphanage offers housings for children and staff, a small medical centre, administration offices, toilet and shower blocks, a kitchen and a dining hall. Classrooms and terraces are located on the first floor for children’s activities. The blocks are arranged around a central yard in the fashion of traditional Malian and West-African architecture.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaOn this project, located in the subsahelian area, we faced extreme weather conditions. Moreover, for practical, environmental and economic reasons, we choose not to use air conditioning units or even simple fans. For those reasons, the whole design of the orphanage is based on three principles that would guarantee a good comfort in the building.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaThe first principle is the reduction of solar heat gain.To do so, an additional roof is placed above the blocks. Those roofs that go over the blocks’ edges protect the rooms from direct solar gain. Moreover, those extra roofs protect the terraces located on the first floor and used for children activities.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaThe second principle was to improve the thermal mass of the walls. All the walls are made of “H”-shape concrete blocks. Then, the hollow centres of the blocks are filled with Banco: a recipe of mud and grain husks. Banco is easily found in Mali and is well-known for its strong thermal properties. Finally, gabion cladding is used on the most exposed façades.The last principle was about natural ventilation. On the scale of the whole orphanage, the layout of the blocks tends to improve air circulation. On a small scale, each block features vent grills in order to allow natural ventilation and passive cooling.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaDuring the warm season in April, we measured an indoor-outdoor temperature difference of more than 20°C. This result tends to prove the benefits of the specific design developed on this project.Save this picture!Site PlanAs the orphanage is located outside the village of Dialakoroba and far from the services, we had no choice but to make it self-sufficient. Photovoltaic panels are placed on the roof to produce electricity. Groundwater is pumped in a 70m depth well.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaAnother important aspect of the project is waste water management. As Mali faces great water issues, we believed it was particularly relevant to imagine a second life for the water used in the building. Therefore, waste water are collected and processed through an extensive treatment system. The first component of this system is a digester making possible the settlement of suspended solids. The second component is a biofilter where anaerobic bacteria are fixed on sand beds in order to purify the water. When depolluted water exits this device, it flows to an opened pond used for fish farming. The overflowing water – around 4 m3 a day – is then used for agriculture (especially market gardening) allowing several harvests a year instead of one.Save this picture!SectionThis system not only provides food for the orphanage but also provides education for the children in the fields of market gardening and fish farming. Finally the orphanage outdoes its primary function of giving a shelter to the children and takes a part in their education and fulfillment.Save this picture!© Vanja BjelobabaThis project was marked with knowledge and know-how exchanges. This can be simply illustrates with two examples. The idea of using “H”-shape concrete blocks that is a very relevant compromise between a complete concrete masonry design and a complete mudbrick solution was given by a Malian engineer. The extensive wastewater treatment process design by our friend Gérard Violante, a French engineer, was implement for the first time in Mali and should find other applications elsewhere.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanAs a conclusion, this whole adventure will be always remembered by our team not only because of the nature of the project but also thanks to the quality of the exchanges we experience with people. This first project will be also remembered for bringing our team together to create our architecture firm.Project gallerySee allShow lessPenthouse Plata / GreenfieldSelected ProjectsCraigieburn Library / Francis-Jones Morehen ThorpSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bamako, MaliLocation to be used only as a reference.
