The loss of LRH of almost 17 million kuna damages the image of the entire destination?

first_imgAlthough LRH is on sale, it is still uncertain who the new buyer will be. At the moment, the only thing that is certain is that it will not be Singapore Investment Fund because the company, for technical reasons, cannot provide them with a five-star lift. What deters potential buyers from the company is allegedly the price, but also the idea of ​​separating non-functional assets into a separate company, and selling only the core business of the company, which is not in the interest of the local community. When the company will be sold, to whom and at what price, remains to be seen. Although the total revenues of LRH of HRK 322,7 million for 2018 are at the level of the previous one, total expenditures increased by almost 12 percent, to HRK 339,4 million. Expenditures for employees had the largest impact, rising by HRK 33,7 million. Among the figures is that the loss of LRH amounted to as much as 16,7 million kuna, but it is an interesting fact that now the former President of the Management Board Igor Šehanović was paid a bonus of 14,1 million kuna. ( ZSE report ) Source: ZSE / Novi List – Photo: Remisens Hotels & Villas / Facebook In June last year, the Supervisory Board of the Republic of Croatia approved the termination of the contract of the President of the Management Board Igor Šehanović, which agreed on the payment of bonuses of HRK 14,1 million, while the total gross amount is slightly more than HRK 28 million. Last week, the Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) published a report on the financial condition of Liburnija Riviera Hotel for 2018. Mayor of Opatija Ivo Dujmić, for Novi List stated that this business result greatly damages the image of the Opatija Riviera. “And that is why I think that such moves must not damage the image of the destination. Given that LRH is the most economically important hotel group in Liburnia, the City, through the company Nova Liburnija, warned in an open letter that this payment could result in such a negative business result. But now the situation is as it is and I believe that the current and future owner and management will no longer make such decisions, or that the business will go in the direction of destination development. In previous periods, it was not a practice to pay a dividend, but it was reinvested in raising the quality of facilities, and I hope that a new investor will come on this path who will further invest in the development and raising the value of the company and the destination itself.”, Commented Dujmić.

PREMIUMJobs law offers tax incentives to attract investment

first_imgThe government is hoping that the new tax incentives introduced in the recently passed Job Creation Law help to grow the economy by attracting more investment and creating jobs.The Finance Ministry’s Fiscal Policy Agency head, Febrio Kacaribu, said Monday that the new incentives, in addition to the ones offered in Law No. 2/2020, could make Indonesia’s tax regime more competitive globally.The jobs law eliminates income tax on dividends earned in Indonesia and on certain income, including dividends earned abroad, as long as they are invested in the country.

Lesotho are dangerous -Jawula, Arday warn Stars

first_imgFormer Chairman of the Ghana Football Association, Lepowura M.N.D Jawula and veteran coah, Sam Hemans Arday are cautioning the Black Stars not to consider victory against Lesotho in this weekend’s World Cup qualifier a done deal as they could end up laughing at the wrong side of their mouths.While Lepowura is urging the Stars to be guided by history, Coach Arday says Lesotho will just be happy to upset the Stars apple cart.The Stars are away to the Likuena (Crocodiles) of Lesotho in their last but one game in these qualifiers, but are talks of that match being an easy deal for the Ghanaians with more focus rather on the very last game against Zambia in September.Lepowura Jawula, who led the the Stars to a qualifying match in Lesotho during his tenure, says it will be dangerous for the Stars to consider the Likuena as pushovers.Zambia currently lead the group standings with 10 points, one ahead of the Stars and with Zambia also tipped as favourites in their home match against Sudan on Saturday, a win for the Stars will help mantain the pressure on the Chipolopolos with that one-point for their September clash.“On paper it is predictable that the winner of Group D will be decided by the in the final match between Ghana and Zambia and so most people may be carried away by that. “ Yes it is important to talk about the Zambia game in September, but of what importance will that match be if the Stars slipped against Lesotho and dropped valuable points while the Zambians are able to scale the Sudan hurdle?“ It is therefore important for the Stars to also consider the game in Maseru a difficult, but must-win one to keep the momentum for the Zambia return leg.”Lepowura Jawula cautioned the Stars to be reminded of how Ghana struggled and had to come from behind to draw 3-3 with Lesotho in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Maseru in 2001 to know that tough times lied ahead on Sunday.Though Charles Amoah gave Ghana the lead in that game, Lesotho took a commanding 3-1 lead. The Stars were saved the blushes from a 85th and 90th minute strikes from Nana Arhin-Duah.“Lesotho are dangerous at home and the Stars must not be carried away by their 7-0 win in the first encounter and go into the game as if they can override them again. They may not score as many goals but they are capable of being an impediment.“Lesotho know they have nothing to lose in the outcome of this encounter, but they will be thrilled to scupperbe credited with the fact that they will be the ones to hamper the chances of the Stars with a revenge for the 7-0 beating they received in Kumasi in the opening game. They will even be out to also help the cause of their neighbours, Zambia who currently lead and could do with such a big favour as Ghana dropping valuable points. “Unlike other blocks where no one wants to do the neighbour a favour, alliance is very strong in Southern Africa and that could motivate Lesotho to give Ghana a very tough time on Sunday,” Lepowura Jawula said.Coach Sam Arday, who has also coached the Stars, also gave similar advise and stressed the need for Kwasi Appiah to adopt a strategy that will force the Likuena to open up.“ Having conceded as many as seven goals against Ghana and four against Zambia last week, they will likely play a very defensive game which could frustrate the Stars but Kwasi Appiah must adopt a style that will hold them to their own game at least for the first 15 minutes which will then force them to open up,” Coach Arday advised.last_img read more
