Bourbon Revenues Rise

first_imgFrench vessel owner and provider of marine and subsea services Bourbon has noted a rise in revenues for the third quarter of the year as expanded fleet and higher average day rates were offset by lower utilization rates.Bourbon generated $426.3 million (€340.8 million) over the three months to 30 September, up 5% compared to the $406.1 million (€324.6 million) in revenue booked during the third quarter of 2013.The company has recorded increased day rates in most segments and regions, owing in part to newer, higher day rates for larger vessels and also rate improvement on some contract renewals and extensions.Revenues from the subsea services for the quarter increased 5.2% versus the same period last year, owing to the removal of 3 smaller vessels (two transferred to Shallow water segment and one sold) and the delivery of 3 new, larger vessels. This accounts for both the increase in average daily rate and the increase in revenues. The reduced utilization rate resulted from a combination of lower level of activity and higher number of drydocks than in the 3,d quarter 2013.Christian Lefevre, Chief Executive Officer of BOURBON, commented: “In the short term, we are entering a period in which the market will be more complex, taking into account cost reductions by clients and the decrease in the price of oil per barrel”. In this context, BOURBON remains focused on excellence in client service execution and on continued cost control. However, structurally the supply and demand for oil & gas will require recovery in the level of investment in the future.” Subsea World News Stafflast_img read more

Partners at SME law firms see profits surge

first_imgPartners at small and medium-sized firms have seen their profits rise by nearly a third in the past 12 months, according to an annual snapshot of the sector.The Armstrong Watson Legal Sector Benchmark, published today, reveals that net profit per equity partner for firms increased by 33% between 2015/16 and 2016/17. Average profit stood at £129,000, up from £97,000.The results are based on a survey of around 100 firms that Armstrong Watson advises. The firms all have up to 30 partners and are based mainly in the north of England.Fee income per equity partner also increased. Overall, this stood at £598,000, an increase of 48%, the report said. Firms with one to seven partners saw a 52% rise in fee income, while those with eight or more partners reported a 25% rise.However, the report notes that ‘despite this increased profitability, cash still appears to be tight as lock-up has increased; investments have been made and therefore drawings have fallen behind profits.’Among other findings, firms with eight or more partners had 2.9 fee-earners to every partner (down from 3.2 the previous year), while at firms with one to seven partners, the ratio of fee-earner to equity partner increased from 3 to 4.3.last_img read more

Aaron Wan-Bissaka Finalises Move to Manchester United After Woeful EURO U-21 Championship Campaign

first_imgCrystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is set to join Manchester United in a deal worth up to £50million.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are attempting to kick-start their summer rebuild by signing the talented 21-year-old right-back, having so far only brought in Daniel James from Swansea.It is understood significant progress was made during talks between United and Palace on Tuesday, with an initial fee of £45million agreed along with a further £5million in add-ons.A medical will be sorted sooner rather than later to complete the signing of Wan-Bissaka, who is seen behind the scenes at Old Trafford as someone that will fit in Solskjaer’s style and get fans on their feet – even as a right-back.A young, exciting talent, United have worked solidly to reach an agreement with Palace and are now looking to make more additions that will complement the current squad.Wan-Bissaka’s return from the Under-21 European Championship should smooth the final stages of the deal, although his role in England’s group-stage exit is not something he will want reminding of.The right-back endured a difficult time in Italy, where Aidy Boothroyd overlooked him for the Young Lions’ last two group matches after his late own goal in the opener against France led to a 2-1 loss.RelatedWilfried Zaha Informs Crystal Palace of His Departure with an £80m Price TagMay 16, 2019In “Transfers”Mason Mount Set For England Senior Call UpAugust 28, 2019In “England”Done Deal: Crystal Palace Signs Fosu-Mensah From Manchester UnitedAugust 10, 2017In “England”last_img read more

Ravens remodeled defensive line could be the best in the league

first_imgIn a rotational role on this defense that is now loaded from front to back and even in between thanks to his draft classmates Patrick Queen (LSU) and Malik Harrison (OSU), the former Aggie could be dark horse candidate to win Defensive Rookie of the Year honors if he piles up sacks and pressures while being groomed by one of the best in the game in Campbell as his mentor. After watching their beefy interior that included gap fillers Brandon Williams and Michael Pierce—who were widely recognized as the best run stiffing tandem in the league—got torn asunder in their divisional round defeat this past postseason and then witnessing the San Francisco 49ers’ uber-athletic defensive front wreak shop throughout the playoffs and nearly secure them a Superbowl title, the Ravens and General Manager Eric DeCosta were inspired to stray away from their typical archetype for their interior defensive linemen this offseason. He could have an even greater impact than Campbell on the production of the edge rushers this season. For years, he did the dirty work for the Broncos in the trenches and set up their outside linebackers like Von Miller, Demarcus Ware and Bradley Chubb up for sacks, pressures and quarterback hits that otherwise could’ve been his but the play wasn’t drawn up for him to be the looper on stunts, twists and in certain blitz packages. In the past, the Baltimore Ravens defensive line depthchart has been littered with 300 plus pound behemoths that specialize stuffingthe run first in foremost with their massive space-eating frames and stockybuilds. What’s the significance of mentioning the size and dimensions of Ravens past and present? With the exception of Ellis who is listed at 6-foot-2and 350 pounds, all of the other aforementioned defensive linemen are taller,weigh under or right around 300 pounds, and have slender athletic builds thanthe traditional bulky interior players that the Ravens have employed in yearspast. Former franchise greats and fan favorites like Tony Siragusa, KellyGregg, recently Pierce and currently Williams to name a few, have all been moreor less built the same and weighed well over 300 pounds. It all started with the acquisition of Calais Campbell via trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round pick. Then they let Pierce walk in free agency and he went on to sign a sizable contract for the Minnesota Vikings—he’ll fetch a pretty high compensatory pick in next year’s draft. While some may point to the lack of a premierpass-rushing talent on the edge as a knock on this unit, the collective talentand skillsets of this group will both complement and elevate the play ofdefense as a whole. In free agency, they resigned Jihad Ward and Justin Ellis who was part of the midseason reclamation project of the defense last season and were able to get former Denver Bronco Derek Wolfe for a steal on a one year deal after their contract with Rams’ Michael Brockers fell through. A month later in the draft, they picked up a pair of young defensive linemen from the lone star state with the selection of Justin Madubuike (Texas A&M) in the third round and Broderick Washington (Texas Tech) in the fifth. DeCosta and Co. saw that the best way to disrupt modern-day offenses whether they’re run heavy like the Tennessee Titans or pass-happy like the Kansas City Chiefs is to have athletic defensive lineman that can get great penetration to not only stuff the run consistently but put constant pressure on opposing quarterback’s at a high rate as well. This inspired them to target players and prospects of a different ilk to remake their depth chart at the position. center_img Wolfe’s potential impact on the defense and the value at which the Ravens were able to get him at can’t be overstated or underestimated. He was on pace for a career year through the first 12 games of 2019 with seven sacks before his season was cut short by an elbow injury. He’s an upgrade from a pass rush standpoint over what they would’ve been getting from Brockers and the fact that he’s coming at about a third of the cost makes the overall value of the acquisition an absolute steal of a deal at a base salary of just $3 million with another $3 million in incentives. Interior pass rush and interior pass rushers havebecome very valuable in recent years with the accession of players like AaronDonald and Chris Jones who routinely finish among the league leaders in sacksand pressures. Even though he is the elder statesmen of the bunch, Campbell isstill a game wrecker up the middle and his 71 pressures in 2019 were the secondmost among interior linemen and 11th among all defensive linemen. A big reason why he was enjoying his best season to date last season is that his former head coach Vic Fangio brought over his system from his time in Chicago with the Bears that schemed up plays for every one of his players to make plays and get sacks, not just the perimeter guys. While he’ll get his fair share of one on one opportunities in Baltimore since they have so much talent around him, the fact that he excels at gobbling up blockers to spring his teammates to come off the edge or up the middle without hardly being touched will be a huge asset that defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale will most certainly take advantage of. The Ravens got more athletic and more versatile in the overhaul of the middle of their defense this offseason and it could pay major dividends in the fall. These new additions will not only improve their interior pass rush but their edge rush as well. The presence of Campbell, Wolfe, and Madubuike wreaking havoc up the middle will take some of the attention and pressure away from their outside linebackers crashing off the edge. That means that Matthew Judon could break thedouble-digit sack threshold in a contract year after being franchise-taggedthis offseason, rising sophomore Jaylon Ferguson could break out big time inyear two, veteran Pernell McPhee could have a nice bounce-back year afterending last season on injured reserve and Tyus Bowser could see a boom in hisproduction in the final year of his rookie deal. Williams will still be the anchor in the middle of the unit and the best run defender of the bunch. He was playing some of his best football down the stretch last season and has improved as an interior pass rusher even though it doesn’t reflect itself in the stat sheet—he did record a career-high five quarterback hits in 2019. He’ll be an excellent mentor for rising sophomore Daylon Mack who spent nearly all of last season on injured reserve but plays the same position and at 6-foot-1 and 340 pounds is built like Williams who is 6-foot-1 and 336 pounds. While Washington will likely be relegated to a backup role as a rookie that will have to fight to make the game-day roster, Madubuike has the potential to play a significant role in the defense in year one. He could be both Campbell’s and Wolfe’s primary backup at either three or five-technique which means that he could see a decent-sized workload in what will be a heavy rotation upfront for a Ravens’ defense that want’s to spell their veterans early and often to keep them fresh. The moves that DeCosta made this offseason will enable the Ravens’ defense to generate more pressure and get to the quarterback quicker without having to send more than five or six defenders. This will lead to more coverage sacks and possibly even more turnovers from quarterbacks making rash decisions because they are being flushed out of constantly collapsing pockets. The Ravens 37 sacks as a team ranked 21st in the league last season and thanks to some new additions, that number could go way up in 2020 thanks to their brilliantly remodeled defensive line that could emerge as the best unit in the league this year.Please follow and like us:last_img read more
