Shares in food delivery company Deliveroo fell as it debuted on the London Stock Exchange today

Deliveroo shares opened at 331p, compared to 390p paid by investors for the company when it went public – the largest in nearly a decade

And they slide on and suddenly fall to 271p. Currently they change at approx 310p the owner

That’s a drop of around 20% and a remarkably poor start to Deliveroo’s new role as a publicly traded company

Deliveroo was already forced to rate the IPO at the lower end of its range in order to receive the offer

Several major city investors had opposed the opportunity to participate in Deliveroo’s initial public offering, including Aviva Investors, which cited a combination of investment risk and social issues

A key concern of some investors has been Deliveroo’s employment practices, the food delivery group does not guarantee minimum wage rates as couriers are independent self-employed entrepreneurs who are not entitled to benefits such as vacation pay and the national minimum wage

A portfolio manager from another major investor said Deliveroo’s treatment of workers would raise concerns, while others in the investment industry have questioned Deliveroo’s decision to list two classes of shares This will give co-founder Will Shu closer control of the company’s business for three years

Decline in GDP in 2020 from 9 to 99% up to 98% Another revision like this (which is entirely plausible) and 2020 will have “only” been the worst year since 1921 (-97%) instead of the worst Year since 1709 (-134%) https: // tco / MH0ZicHNwL

New ONS data shows that #UK #economy was even more resilient with GDP growth than first reported in the fourth quarter of 2020 13% qoq (revised from 10% q / q) despite November lockdown & other important Limitations Overall, the GDP decline decreased to 9.8% in 2020 from 99%

The UK The economy remained hardest hit by Covid-19 in the G7 in the fourth quarter with GDP of 7, 3% below its peak.This weakness * cannot * be attributed to how the ONS measures actual government spending, which actually rose by 0 in the fourth quarter Raised 3% year-on-year Instead, spending and exports are to blame: picTwittercom / YHvZABMBme

Good morning, and welcome to our ongoing coverage of the global economy, financial markets, euro area and business

The UK economy grew faster than expected in the second half of last year as it battled its worst slump in centuries

Updated data from the Bureau of National Statistics shows UK GDP rose 1.3% from October to December, a stronger rebound than the first 1% estimated for the final quarter of 2020

This means that the UK’s GDP is now 7.3% below the 4th level Quarter of 2019, revised from the previous estimate of 78%

The ONS has also revised its estimate for the third quarter recovery, it now expects GDP to have increased 169% in July-September when restrictions were lifted, an upward revision of 08 percentage points

But the slump during the first wave of Covid-19 caused even more economic pain than anticipated April-June 2020 GDP is estimated to have dropped 195%, a downward revision of 05 percentage points, with the lockdown wiping out almost a fifth of economic activity / p>

That means the economy is projected to shrink by 9% overall in 2020 – slightly better than the 99% first estimate, but still the worst year on record

So the annual picture is largely the same – Britain has just suffered its worst annual contraction since the Great Freeze hit the UK over 300 years ago

“Our revised quarterly figures show that the economy contracted a little more in the initial phase of the pandemic than previously assumed, before recovering a little more in the second half of last year“

Shares in the food delivery group Deliveroo are traded today among investors in London’s largest IPO in ten years

But given concerns about driver treatment and troubled stock markets, Deliveroo is rated a little less than hoped

Shares are being sold at £ 3 each, which equates to a valuation of £ 7 6 billion This is a meaty valuation, but it’s around $ 1 billion GBP is below expectations Deliveroo set during the IPO process Deliveroo insists that institutional investors have seen huge demand – but several big city names are pulling out of the IPO

While the listing is expected to be the largest IPO in London for a decade or more, some top fund managers are avoiding the stocks due to concerns about Deliveroo’s labor practices, which do not guarantee minimum wage rates for their couriers

Together with other operators in the gig economy, Deliveroo, which is supported by Amazon, has faced legal challenges worldwide from couriers and drivers seeking access to basic rights such as minimum wages and vacation pay

The listing will result in 1 billion GBP for the company and 500 million GBP raised for the sale of shareholders including Amazon and Will Shu, the former investment banker who started the service from his London apartment in 2013

JPMorgan Chase analysts have estimated those losses to be $ 5 billion to $ 10 billion USD, which is far more serious than running a typical fund
