The St Modwen Properties (LSE:SMP) share price is up nearly 20% today. The reason is undoubtedly the news of Blackstone, a private equity firm, making a £1.2bn takeover offer for it. The offer is a cash one and would work out at 542p per share. That would be a 21% premium to St Modwen’s closing share price of 448p on 6 May 2021.St Modwen shareholders certainly seem to favour the offer as they have bid up the share price to 533p today. That suggests that if this went to a vote, they would approve. Any shareholders that bought St Modwen in the depths of the market crash will be looking at around a 55% one-year gain if the takeover offer is approved. It’s also worth noting that today’s price rise has returned the St Mowden share price to its pre-crash highs. 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…Although it’s early days, management has not outright rejected the offer as undervaluing the company and is working with Blackstone to complete due diligence checks. However, this is a conditional offer. Blackstone has until 4 June to formalise it without asking for an extension. Even if the due diligence checks are satisfied, Blackstone can withdraw or make alternative offers if certain conditions are met. With all that in mind, it is probably worth considering why Blackstone might want St Modwen in the first place.Why Blackstone wants the firmSt Modwen’s business focuses mainly on two sectors: logistics and housebuilding. These make up 78% of the firm’s portfolio, and the plan is to increase this towards 90% within three years. At present, 49% of the portfolio is dedicated to the logistic business, and 27% to homebuilding. A third sector, strategic land and generation, is diminishing in importance, falling from 35% in 2019 to 24% in 2020.It’s the logistics business that is probably of most interest to Blackstone. Owners of warehouses, infrastructure and distribution networks have benefited enormously from the shift to online shopping. This benefit accelerated during the pandemic as retail, leisure, and office properties stood empty whilst warehouses filled up with stock for online channels and rents were pretty much paid in full.Blackstone has been buying — mainly through its Mileway unit — properties to store goods in and deliver from across Europe at pace since well before the pandemic struck. Although it’s worth noting that it recently put up some non-core warehousing properties for sale, an offer for St Modwen fits with Blackstone’s long-term strategic logistics plan. This is to focus on urban warehousing, which St Modwen has plenty of. The bet is that shortening delivery times will be important for online retail going forward. Therefore, storing goods closer to where the customers are will see increased demand.St Modwen share price: where next?What will happen next for the St Modwen share price depends on Blackstone. If the offer is formalised and approved, current shareholders will be taken out for 542p per share. That would be a short-term gain of 1.68%. If the offer is withdrawn completely or modified, the St Modwen share price could reverse today’s 20% rise in part, or in full, or perhaps go beyond that.

The client, recording artist Michael Rank, purchased his 60-acre spread near Pittsboro, NC, 20 years ago and has been waiting for the right time and the right designer to build a house on it. Because privacy is a primary concern for this client, Tonic’s designers sited the house deeply into the property and near the edge of a forest. This set up a beautiful, rolling approach and a relationship between the house and an open pasture. The road curves to reveal an almost startling view of the tall, vertical end of the cubistic house, the upper section covered in standing seam metal. Any reminder of Gothic architecture’s pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and flying buttresses is strictly intentional!Save this picture!© Raymond GoodmanIn fact, the client asked Tonic to design and build a “Modern Gothic” house. That, plus his insistence on privacy; his love of tall, vertical spaces; his extreme fascination with stairs; his extensive art collection; and his need for space to house his “muscle cars” and dragster drove the design scheme. The result is a 3200-square-foot, four-story, flat-roofed house with a three-story-clear living room and an 1100-square-foot four-car garage beneath, all of which push the limits of wood-frame construction. Save this picture!© Raymond GoodmanOn grade, the garage is cast concrete. The main living space is defined on the exterior by painted concrete panels. The upper two levels are clad in factory-finished, black, standing-seam metal roofing material that will never need painting. The latter was both an aesthetic and practical choice considering the height of the structure. By design, the black and white exterior also recalls piano keys.Save this picture!PlansSpeaking of music: Narrow vertical windows are placed to suggest notes on the staffs of sheet music. These off-the-shelf Window Shield® windows fit the dimensions inside the metal’s standing seams, so they enhance the house’s verticality and contributed to fast, affordable construction since there was no need for custom fitting. They also give the owner the privacy he wants while suggesting Gothic castles’ “arrow loop” windows that provided cover for archers protecting the castle.A large Ipe wood deck with a black metal railing with steel cables, custom fabricated by Tonic Construction, extends the living space outdoors. A smaller balcony projects from the owner’s bedroom. Save this picture!© Raymond GoodmanFrom the garage level, an 11-foot-tall concrete exterior staircase leads up to the home’s main level, where the living room rises to three stories clear and the owner’s favorite colors – black, gray, and white – are immediately apparent. The open kitchen and dining space are immediately adjacent to the living room. Along a far wall and overhead, a dramatic network of black metal staircases and ramps (M.C. Escher paintings come to mind), with open-grated steel flooring, lead up to bedrooms for the owner and his son (on separate quadrants of the upper level), to the library, and to a recording studio where the owner can write and record his music. (The studio can be converted to an additional bedroom in the future if necessary.) Sliding black metal doors provide privacy for the separate rooms. A spiral staircase from top to bottom is also located at the rear of the house. Save this picture!ElevationsThroughout the house, ledges hold artwork that can be revolved out whenever the owner wants without leaving nail holes in the white sheet-rocked walls. In dramatic contrast to the white walls is the dark gray ECOfusion® bamboo flooring from CaraGreen with subtle flecks of blue and brown.Project gallerySee allShow lessIntuition: Your Best Design Tool?ArticlesMark Wigley Steps Down as Dean of Columbia University’s GSAPPArchitecture News Share Architects: Tonic Design + Tonic Construction Year Completion year of this architecture project The Rank Residence / Tonic Design + Tonic Construction CopyAbout this officeTonic Design + Tonic ConstructionOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPittsboroHousesUnited StatesPublished on September 25, 2013Cite: “The Rank Residence / Tonic Design + Tonic Construction” 25 Sep 2013.

Stone walls act as holding elements at the ends of the building. The three bedroom blocks on the upper level are separated with lush courtyards all tied together by the steel holding edge beams. The building is a fusion of a contemporary approach with regional influences. The traditional curved tiled roofs in the area inspired the exterior upper eaves and internal gallery where the forms are re-interpreted as a series of stone vaults.Save this picture!© Adam LetchThe building is layered in the use of materials including plaster, stone, wooden pergolas and shutters, aluminum and large expanses of glass. The entry forecourt leads one into the main living level which opens onto a shaded outdoor terrace, raised half a level above the pool. Internally it is arranged as a series of individual open-plan spaces. There is a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors.

In reply to a question by Michael McGrath TD, Michael Noonan provided figures which showed tax relief in 2013 was worth €23.5 million against €25.1 million in 2012.Quoted in the Irish Times, Mr McGrath said the drop in donations “even before the controversy about charity funding emerged”, showed the need for charities to “step up to the mark” in funding and business activity transparency.Many charities will receive tax relief income from PAYE donations in 2013 this year and if the ‘top up’ controversy has had as big an effect as some charities suspect it will be reflected in returns in 2014.
Pandemic is transforming nonprofits’ approach to digital, report finds The Covid-19 pandemic is transforming European nonprofits’ approach to service delivery and fundraising, according to a new report released on Wednesday by the European Fundraising Association and Salesforce.org.The report, which includes survey results from almost 800 nonprofit representatives across Europe, looked at the impact of the pandemic on income, fundraising and service delivery. It found that while the majority of nonprofits had to cancel events and downscale their income projections, over half of them increased their use of digital.The report notes that 65% of respondents ramped up their use of digital for service delivery, 62% for fundraising and 54% to diversify their future fundraising strategy. Specific actions included launching emergency appeals and starting new fundraising channels. The European Fundraising Association found evidence that nonprofits are “innovating and embracing digital to re-shape their future.” The impact is expected to be long-term with only 11% of participants stating that their future fundraising strategy will not change.Despite these innovations, most respondents predicted that their organisation’s total revenue during 2020 will be lower than was expected at the start of the year. There are, however, regional variations. Of the six national markets with the largest number of responses, respondents in Italy (53%), Spain (38%) and the UK (37%) were most likely to have seen a decrease in the amount donated. Respondents in Germany (45%) and France (37%) were more likely to have seen an increase, while donations were stable for 40% of respondents in the Netherlands.Eduard Marček, President of the European Fundraising Association and Chair of the Slovak Fundraising Centre, says:“This has been an incredibly tough year for the sector, and this survey indicates that the majority of nonprofits have had to downscale their income projections at a time when their services are urgently needed. The ability to raise enough funds to continue their vital work remains an immense concern.“And yet, it’s clear that nonprofits have not stood still. They are working hard to innovate, identifying new ways to fundraise, to build supporter engagement and to deliver frontline services. The pandemic remains a major threat and the work of the nonprofit sector will be all the more important as we work together to aid Europe’s recovery.”The European Fundraising Association is a network of fundraising associations and bodies working to strengthen and develop fundraising across Europe.
