Peloton said Thursday that its fiscal second-quarter revenue would be within the previously expected range as it takes steps to reduce costs and improve profitability.

However, the company added fewer subscribers in the latest period, which ended on December 31, than it had expected.

In A press release Pre-announcing its financial results, Peloton said it expects to end the quarter with 2.77 million connected fitness subscribers, compared to an expected range of 2.8 million to 2.85 million. Connected Fitness subscribers are people who own a Peloton product and also pay a monthly fee to access the company’s digital workout content.

Average net monthly churn for the quarter is expected to be 0.79%. That’s lower than the 0.82% it reported in the first quarter and slightly above the 0.76% it saw a year ago. The lower the churn rate, the less turnover Peloton sees with its user base.

He said he expects total second-quarter revenue of $1.14 billion, which is within the $1.1 billion to $1.2 billion forecast he previously provided.

And Peloton said adjusted losses — before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization — will be between $270 million and $260 million, compared to earlier guidance for a loss of $350 million to $325 million.

The company’s Thursday night announcement follows a CNBC report that the connected fitness maker is temporarily halting production of its products.

Shares of Peloton rose 2.5% in after-hours trading, after closing the day down 23.9%, at $24.22. About $2.5 billion was wiped from Peloton’s market capitalization on Thursday as the stock fell below an IPO price of $29.

“As we discussed last quarter, we are taking significant corrective action to improve our profitability outlook and optimize our costs across the business,” chief executive John Foley said in a statement. “This includes gross margin improvements, moving to a more variable cost structure and identifying reductions in our operating expenses as we build a more focused peloton going forward.”

Foley added that Peloton will have more to share when it releases its fiscal second quarter results on Feb. 8.

On Tuesday, CNBC reported that Peloton is now working with consulting firm McKinsey & Co. to seek cost-cutting opportunities, which could include layoffs and store closures.

At the end of this month, it will also begin to reduce shipping and installation costs for its Bike and Tread products, in part due to historical inflation. The price of his bike will drop from $1,495 to $1,745. Its less expensive treadmill will drop from $2,495 to $2,845. The Bike+ will remain at $2,495, according to Peloton’s website.

Baird analyst Jonathan Komp said in a note to clients that after pursuing growth for years, Peloton has developed “an inflated corporate spending waistline.” He estimates that Peloton added potentially $500 million to $600 million in annual expenses for stores and employees who could be targeted and excluded from the business.

“We suspect there are significant opportunities to reassess the workforce … amid more subdued near-term consumer demand expectations post-Covid,” Komp said.

Baird said the right cost-cutting measures could help the company return to profitability sooner than expected.

Peloton said it does not expect to be profitable – before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization – until fiscal 2023.

COVID-19: Credit Suisse Chairman Antonio Horta-Osorio resigns for nine months after bank investigation finds he broke quarantine rules | Economic news https://bizimkasa.com/covid-19-credit-suisse-chairman-antonio-horta-osorio-resigns-for-nine-months-after-bank-investigation-finds-he-broke-quarantine-rules-economic-news/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 07:22:46 +0000 https://bizimkasa.com/covid-19-credit-suisse-chairman-antonio-horta-osorio-resigns-for-nine-months-after-bank-investigation-finds-he-broke-quarantine-rules-economic-news/ The chairman of Credit Suisse has resigned just nine months after breaking COVID-19 quarantine rules – in fresh controversy for the global investment bank as it recovers from a series of scandals.

The chairman of Credit Suisse has resigned just nine months after breaking COVID-19 quarantine rules – in fresh controversy for the global investment bank as it recovers from a series of scandals.

Antonio Horta-Osorio’s departure was announced by the Switzerland-based lender on Monday in a sharp move that comes less than a year after he joined to clean up the company’s corporate culture.

He is now raising questions about the embattled lender’s new strategy after his reputation was tarnished by his involvement with collapsed investment firm Archegos and insolvent supply chain finance firm Greensill Capital.

Mr Horta-Osorio is the former chief executive of Lloyds Banking Group and previously served as chief executive of Santander.

He is now in the spotlight for the information he violated coronavirus quarantine rules twice in 2021.

Picture:
Credit Suisse announces the resignation of its president Antonio Horta-Osorio

In a statement posted on the bank’s website, the 57-year-old Portuguese banker said: “I regret that a number of my personal actions have caused difficulties for the bank and compromised my ability to represent the bank internally. and externally.

“I therefore believe that my resignation is in the interest of the bank and its stakeholders at this crucial time. I wish my colleagues at Credit Suisse every success in the future.”

The bank said Mr Horta-Osorio had resigned following an investigation commissioned by the board and announced it had appointed Axel P Lehmann as the bank’s new chairman ‘with immediate effect’ .

In December it was reported that a preliminary internal bank investigation found Mr Horta-Osorio had attended the Wimbledon tennis final in London in July without following UK quarantine rules.

He also allegedly flouted the rules during a visit to Switzerland in November by leaving the country for a 10-day quarantine period, according to the bank.

Last April Mr Horta-Osorio stepped down as chief executive of Lloyds Banking Group following a 10 year term during which he stabilized the bank and oversaw its return to the private sector after its bailout by the government in the aftermath of the financial crisis.

He had previously addressed allegations about his private life after details surfaced of an alleged extramarital affair.

Credit Suisse, which announced a new strategy in November in a bid to curb a freewheeling culture that has cost it billions, said the bank would continue to implement its new strategy with Mr Lehmann at the helm.

Mr Lehmann, 63, spent more than a decade at rival UBS, where he was responsible for the bank’s Swiss personal and corporate unit after a stint of nearly two decades at Zurich Insurance Group.

The sudden exit of Mr. Horta-Osorio demoralized staff, with some wondering what was next for the bank.

“What a waste and yet again we are making headlines for the wrong reason,” a senior private banker at Credit Suisse said anonymously, as he was not authorized to speak to the media.

5 resolutions for your 2022 marketing plans https://bizimkasa.com/5-resolutions-for-your-2022-marketing-plans/ Fri, 14 Jan 2022 18:10:19 +0000 https://bizimkasa.com/5-resolutions-for-your-2022-marketing-plans/ Making and keeping resolutions for a new federal program year is often more art than science.

Making and keeping resolutions for a new federal program year is often more art than science. Federal marketers considering a new approach to their vendor partnerships with government agencies now plan to kick off in 2022. Our government marketing sector wants a reality check on what is valid, what will work in the future. 2022 and beyond.

Resolutions for 2022 – What’s next?

As the world’s largest consumer, the US federal government spends more than $650 billion on products and services each year. To ensure your business has the opportunity to excel in the government marketplace, Lisa Shay Mundt and Amber Hart, co-founders of The Pulse of GovCon, a consulting firm for government contractors, offered important considerations when from the Government Marketing University conference, WINNING 2021.

The best way to impress a potential client is to show off your company’s expertise:

  • Create white papers that highlight past performance and draw attention to successes and lessons learned.
  • Keep your website up to date highlighting the services you are currently bidding on based on the type of contract you are pursuing. You want to demonstrate that your company is qualified for the job you are pursuing.
  • Do not complicate your business communication. If your business sells heavy-duty flashlights, don’t say you sell tactical lighting devices. Keep it simple.
  • Use webinars schedule open demos
  • And finally, know your audience and appeal to them in their own language.

They recommend a tailored approach for each federal agency, program, initiative or decision maker you are targeting. You wouldn’t approach the US Navy the way you would target the State Department. Marketing materials should be specific to your audience. Make sure you know the appropriate keywords, jargon, and language for each agency before making a connection.

Increase sales and build your government career

Rao Unnava, Ph.D., dean of the Graduate School of Management, University of California, Davis, and board member of the American Marketing Association, shared his thoughts on what government marketers should to be recognized by business leaders and to be part of the important decision-making process that takes place in every company.

Unnava suggests marketers explain how their marketing strategies help the company achieve its strategic goals.

Once stakeholders see that they need your guidance and support to be successful, you will be seen as a team leader and an integral part of the decision-making process. He said government service marketing teams can gain both recognition and buy-in from business stakeholders by stepping outside their organization to consult with government marketing experts. An experienced government marketing consultant can give you much-needed outside perspective to identify strengths and areas for improvement in your strategic plan.

Do your homework with Market Intel

In just under two years, sweeping changes have occurred in the way government operates and in the way industry and government collaborate and work together to meet the challenges of delivering programs, benefits and services to citizens. Government agencies are on the front lines fighting multi-faceted crises ranging from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters and the resettlement of Afghan refugees to cyberattacks on our nation’s critical infrastructure. As challenges grow more complex, the need for new and emerging technologies capable of solving problems in real time is urgent.

During the GAIN Conference 2021, a panel of experts discussed the trends shaping the public sector market, from policies and initiatives to procurement and technology. “Market Intelligence: A Deep Dive into the Public Sector Market” focuses on these moves. One of the big takeaways is that digitization is a big priority for the government.

“We need security built into solutions from the start, especially identity management with the distributed workforce,” said Troy Schneider, general manager of government technology brands at GovExec, the parent company of Washington Technology. “We need to do more digitally to manage users and secure their interactions with the government.”

Define marketing objectives

During the GAIN 2021 session, “Rethinking Your Playbook: 9 Steps to Defining a Cohesive Annual Marketing Strategy”, a panel of B2G marketing experts provided a roadmap for marketers to follow to increase their earnings within the public sector.

“Start with the end in mind and define what you’re trying to accomplish,” said Stacy Outlaw, senior vice president, marketing, Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies. “Pick three to five main goals that you want to accomplish.”

When setting goals, it is important to ensure that they are realistic and measurable. Plan for the next six to 18 months. Set timelines for each objective and monitor your progress, and be ready to realign as government missions change course.

“Review the activities of the past year and do an audit of what worked, what you need to keep doing, what you need to stop doing and what you should start doing,” Lisa said. DeLuca, Senior Director of Public Sector Marketing at Cisco. . “I recommend going through this process on a quarterly basis.”

Make it personal – Focus on the joy of connecting

Marketing to the public sector is unique and complex. Agencies, constantly tackling society’s biggest challenges, need staffing levels and budgets that rival large private sector companies. They operate in a separate regulatory environment designed to ensure safety and open and fair competition, while maximizing taxpayer funds.

Each agency has a different organizational structure and mission objective. Government customers want to do business with a trusted partner who understands what they need. You will find joy in the public service mission and in knowing that your organization is solving some of our nation’s most complex problems.

Senators Kyrsten Sinema speak at the ceremony in which US President Joe Biden will sign the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on November 15, 2021.

Jonathan Ernst | Reuters

Two of Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s former aides recently lobbied for corporate giants who have sought to influence President Joe Biden’s agenda.

The former staff worked for financial giant HSBC, Starbucks, investment firm C5 Capital, Duke Energy, lead and copper producer Doe Run Company and mining firm Broken Hill Proprietary, according to the recording and quarterly reports.

The two, Kate Gonzales and Alyssa Marois, appear to be rare examples of former Sinema employees registered to lobby the federal government. Their position makes them particularly valuable to their clients since their former boss, an Arizona Democrat, is a pivotal vote in a 50-50 party split Senate.

Sinema and Conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, DW.V., have played vital roles in the Democrat-held Senate over the past year as their party tried to pass bills, including the Build Back Better Act. of Biden with a simple majority. A single Democratic defection can overthrow major legislation.

Sinema did not pledge to vote for the Build Back Better Act, Biden’s $ 1.75 trillion social and climate spending program. As Democrats negotiated the Build Back Better Act last year, Sinema rejected Biden’s proposal to raise the corporate tax rate to at least 25% from 21%. She supported more complicated plans for a minimum corporate tax and a surtax on the richest people.

The centrist also angered members of her party on other issues: while she supports an election reform bill that the Senate plans to revisit this week, she opposed removing filibuster to pass the controversial bill in the face of unified Republican efforts to block it.

Sinema helped draft and voted for the $ 1 trillion infrastructure law recently signed by Biden. For his part, Manchin opposed the Build Back Better plan and any modification of the obstruction rules.

Gonzales, one of Sinema’s former aides turned lobbyist, must wait a year before he can put pressure on Sinema’s office, Senate says rules. Gonzales’ LinkedIn page says she left Sinema’s office in April after five months as a political advisor.

CNBC Politics

Learn more about CNBC’s political coverage:

Her previous experience includes just over a year as legislative assistant for Sinema. Gonzales could always put pressure on other lawmakers and their staff.

Representatives for HSBC and the Sinema office declined to comment. Gonzales, Marois and the other current clients mentioned in this story did not return requests for comment until publication.

Marois, who worked for Sinema’s office while she was in the House of Representatives, became the Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at HSBC Last year. The company announced his hiring end of September. She was previously a lobbyist for Wall Street titan JP Morgan Chase.

A third quarter lobbying disclosure report, which covers July through September, shows Marois helped lobby for HSBC on bills in which Sinema played a major role. The report lists the Build Back Better Act passed by the House, the US bailout signed last year, and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) passed in 2020.

Sinema voted for the last two bills and did not commit to supporting the House version of Build Back Better.

The lobbying report notes that Marois and the HSBC lobby team have engaged with the House, Senate, Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

Marois served as Sinema’s legislative director for part of 2017, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics. Sinema won the Senate elections in 2018.

Many former advisers to lawmakers end up becoming lobbyists. A group of former Manchin associates have recently gained influential clients, including oil and gas giant Hess, media juggernaut Comcast and a non-profit organization founded by a former campaign manager Mike Bloomberg.

“A new intelligence”

Gonzales held various positions with Sinema and was involved in Biden’s presidential campaign before becoming a political advisor to lobbying juggernaut Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck in April, according to her LinkedIn profile.

Gonzales’ profile on her company website indicates that she is part of the lobbying firm’s energy, environment and resources strategy group. The website notes that Gonzales “provides clients with insight into Democratic priorities and new information on where and when politics are likely to move. She is highly qualified to develop compelling messages for Democrats and moderate Republicans, critical voting blocs in a tightly divided Congress.

Recent clients are mining firm Broken Hill Proprietary and investment firm C5 Capital, according to the lobbying record. BHP is present in Texas and is headquartered in Australia. Gonzales and one of his other Brownstein colleagues signed up to lobby for BHP in December over “issues with legacy mining assets,” the form says.

C5 Capital, which has offices in London, New York and Luxembourg, says Gonzales and other lobbyists for the company are working on “nuclear energy issues.” They signed up to lobby for the investment firm in November.

A third quarter lobbying report shows Gonzales and colleagues lobbied for Starbucks over “issues related to ethical sourcing, sustainability and green buildings.” They targeted the House, the Senate, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, according to the filing.

Power company Duke Energy saw Gonzales and other Brownstein lobbyists engage with the House, Senate and Department of Energy in the third quarter on issues related to Build Back Better and “regulations and clean air and climate change legislation, natural gas, renewable energy and other aspects of energy policy, ”according to the report.
