It also saw an increase in average revenue per user (ARPU) to Rp 29,600, higher than the Rp 26,500 recorded in the same period of 2019, thanks to a 63 percent annual jump in data traffic.“The rise in net losses was primarily driven by a one-off impact of organization rightsizing and losses in foreign exchange,” the company said in the statement.The firm announced earlier this year that it was laying off 677 employees as part of a change in its business strategy “to bring the company’s closer to market needs”. The company allocated Rp 663 billion for compensation packages, with an additional bonus of Rp 18.3 billion to 92 percent of employees that accepted the decision.The company’s costs went up by almost 9 percent annually in this year’s first quarter to Rp 6.33 trillion. Telecommunication company PT Indosat reported an increase in losses during this year’s first quarter despite growing revenue as its organization rightsizing added to costs.The publicly listed company recorded Rp 605.61 billion (US$40.37 million) in loses in the January-March quarter, 107.04 percent higher than the corresponding period last year.However, it booked a 7.9 percent year-on-year (yoy) increase in revenue to Rp 6.5 trillion during the quarter, largely driven by a 10.6 percent growth in cellular revenue to Rp 5.4 trillion, the company said in a statement on Wednesday. Despite the increased losses and looming risks from the COVID-19 pandemic, president director and chief executive officer Ahmad Al-Neama was still upbeat about the company’s performance, as it was still on track with its three years turnaround plan, saying the company still “sees positive momentum continuing in the coming quarters.”Al-Neama also emphasized the company’s commitment to improving its network performance and services amid the implementation of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in several regions.“We have accelerated our network rollout plan to make sure people can stay connected during these times and will continue to support the country through this pandemic,” he said in the statement.Binaartha Parama Sekuritas equity analyst M. Nafan Aji told The Jakarta Post on Thursday that the PSBB measures could benefit Indosat’s performance in the second quarter of this year onward.He expected the measures, which require people to work and study from home, to lead to an increase in data usage, which would boost Indosat’s revenue.He also advised the company to find ways to make its business more efficient.“Without efficiency measures, the company is less likely to improve its performance and turn its bottom line to a profit amid the highly competitive climate of the telecommunications industry,” he said.Indosat shares, traded under the code ISAT, dropped 4.44 percent on Thursday versus a 3.26 percent jump on the main gauge Jakarta Composite Index (JCI). Editor’s note: This article has been revised to state that Indosat’s average revenue per user (ARPU) is Rp 29,600, higher than the Rp 26,500 recorded in the same period of 2019.Topics :

NZ Herald 14 April 2012The sex industry is looking forward to a big leg up from SkyCity’s proposed National Convention Centre and the thousands of free-spending overseas conventioneers it would draw to Auckland. The Government is negotiating a deal that would see the casino operator build a $350 million 3500-capacity convention centre in return for legislative changes allowing it more poker machines and gaming tables and other regulatory concessions. Should it go ahead, the new convention centre is expected to draw an additional 22,000 overseas visitors to Auckland and boost tourism revenue by up to $85.4 million. Brian Le Gros, owner of Queen St’s Whitehouse strip club and massage parlour, said the additional overseas visitors and spending would be good all round for Auckland. “It’s hard to say whether I’m going to get any of them. If they don’t bring their wives, it probably will.”……Catherine Healy of the New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective said international conventions drew people away from their normal settings. “Normally when that happens people are more relaxed about hooking up with other people.” “The spectrum across restaurants, bars, all across the businesses that make up the adult entertainment arena, will benefit and part of that will be brothels that are nearby, for sure.” Research by the United States Centre for Problem Oriented Policing notes that street prostitution flourishes around convention centres and hotels, “especially when mostly male conventions are held”, and Ms Healy said sex workers were “a savvy bunch and if money’s being spent somewhere they engineer to be around”.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10798246

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has dismissed the theory that his acrimonious move from Everton provides extra motivation for the Merseysiders against his current club. Lescott left Goodison Park for the Etihad Stadium in a bitter and protracted £22million transfer at the start of the 2009-10 season. At the time Everton manager David Moyes accused City of “disgusting” behaviour and later partly blamed the affair for his side’s poor start to that campaign. But after the move Everton won five of the next six Barclays Premier League meetings between the clubs and they also played out a 1-1 draw earlier this season. The champions must get the better of them this weekend to keep their slim title hopes alive but Lescott said: “It might be the case, but when I was at Everton we beat City on a number of occasions, so I don’t think it’s down to my transfer.” He added: “I wouldn’t say they raise their game, because they are always tough opponents against any team. Goodison is a tough away ground.” City produced one of their best performances of the season last weekend, albeit against npower Championship opposition, as they powered into the FA Cup semi-finals with a 5-0 thrashing of Barnsley. Everton on the other hand, having had high hopes in that competition, crashed to a dismal 3-0 defeat to Wigan to miss out on a Wembley return. Fans were strong in their condemnation and Lescott expects Everton to be fired up this week to prevent their once promising season fizzling out. The 30-year-old, who made his first start in a month against Barnsley, said: “The whole club will be disappointed with their result against Wigan, but you know they will be hard at it in training determined to get a result against us. “The fact they have gone out has no bearing on what happens on Saturday. We know it’s a very tough game, and has been since I joined the club. We know if we are not fully on it we will get beaten, so we have to go there determined to get three points and with the same application we showed against Barnsley.” Victory in the early Saturday fixture would see City cut Manchester United’s lead at the top of the table to nine points before their rivals face Reading later in the day. Manager Roberto Mancini is expected to update on the fitness of captain Vincent Kompany, who has missed seven games with calf problems, and striker Sergio Aguero, who has a knee injury. Mancini said last week he hoped both players would be fit for the trip to Goodison. Press Association

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error CLIPPERS at BUCKSTip-off: 5 p.m.TV/Radio: Prime Ticket, The Beast 980AMUpdate: The Clippers are coming off a 110-106 victory Monday at Minnesota. It was their second consecutive victory and fifth in their past six games. But they are still just 12-9 and of those five victories, none came against an elite team — though Saturday’s win over Orlando came against a good team. … The other good news is the Clippers on Monday saw the return of starting guards Chris Paul and J.J. Redick. Paul had missed the previous two games with inflamed rib cartilage, Redick had missed all but 17 seconds of those game games with a sprained right ankle. Redick shot just 1 of 9 Monday, but made all 11 of his free throws. “My wind was good,” Redick said. “It’s about rhythm. I’ve had two separate weeks out of the last four weeks where I haven’t been able to literally do anything with the basketball.” Redick previously missed three games with back spasms, Paul missed three others with a groin strain. … Sixth-man Jamal Crawford has had two good shooting games in a row, making 10 of 15 from 3-point range. … The Bucks (9-13) have won two consecutive games under coach Jason Kidd. They are led in scoring by 6-foot-11 forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 16.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists. Center Greg Monroe is averaging 15.8 points and 9.9 rebounds. … Milwaukee is shooting 35.9 percent from 3-point range, eighth in the league. The Clippers are at 32.6 percent, tied with Dallas for 23rd.
