first_imgSource = THAI Airways International Thai AirwaysTHAI holds 2016 Annual General Shareholders MeetingAir Force Convention Hall – Mr. Areepong Bhoocha-oom, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI), presided over the Company’s Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting 2016, with the attendance of THAI Board of Directors, THAI Management and shareholders, covering the following agenda:1. Operating Results for 2015At THAI’s 2016 Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting, the operating results for 2015 (January-December 2015) were acknowledged. Since the first quarter of 2015 THAI implemented the Transformation Plan approved by the State Enterprise Policy Committee on 26 January 2015. The Transformation Plan in the first phase aimed to stop the bleeding by reducing flight frequency and/or discontinuing non-profitable routes, cutting unnecessary cost items, generating revenue by adjusting sales strategies, increasing ancillary revenues and enhancing product and services competitiveness. This included personnel cost restructure in order to reduce long-term human resource costs in the long run.THAI received seven new aircraft while decommissioned 15 aircraft following the fleet rationalization strategy resulting in 95 aircraft outstanding as of 31 December 2015 which was a decrease from 102 aircraft in 2014. Nevertheless, the network rationalization strategy resulting in adjusting flight frequency and change of aircraft to match the passenger demand caused more effectiveness on aircraft utilization causing (a) increasing Available Seat-Kilometer: ASK by 0.6%, (b) increasing Revenue Passenger-Kilometer: RPK by 6.5%, (c) increasing cabin factor to an average of 72.9% comparing with 68.9% in 2014, and (d) increasing in number of passengers carried to 21.25 million passengers or an increase of 11.3% from the previous year.Strictly following the strategic and transformation plans which were closely monitored by the Management and Board of Directors, THAI and its subsidiaries reported a 2015 operating loss of THB 1,304 million from airline business, compared with THB 21,715 million or 93.4% improvement from the same period the previous year due mainly to 11.2% total expense reduction on the back of fuel expense and non-fuel expense resulting from cost management initiatives. Total revenue declined by 1.2% from 2014 mainly from 1.5% reduction in passenger revenue and 21.0% reduction in freight revenue. The main reasons for revenue decline were due to high competition, drop in fuel surcharge and strength in the Baht compared to major currencies.In 2015, THAI and its subsidiaries had gained THB 3,512 million on foreign currency exchange. THAI incurred a THB 4,167 million one-time cost from the Transformation Plan and THB 12,157 million in aircraft and asset impairments. Including all these items, the total net loss for 2015 was THB 13,047 million. Loss attributable to owners of the parent amounted to THB 13,068 million. Loss per share was THB 5.99 which was a lower loss than in 2014 by THB 1.16 (16.2%).As of 31 December 2015, total assets were THB 302,471 million, a decrease of THB 4,796 million (1.6%) from 31 December 2014, mainly due to impairment loss of aircraft. Total liabilities as of 31 December 2015 totaled THB 269,545 million, which was an increase of THB 3,574 million (1.3%) as of 31 December 2014. Total shareholders’ equity amounted to THB 32,926 million, which was a decrease of THB 8,370 million (20.3%) as compared to 31 December 2014.2. Distribution of DividendAt the 2016 Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting, the shareholders approved to suspend payment of dividend in reflection of the Company’s financial performance in 2015. The suspension of dividend payment is in accordance with the Company’s dividend policy providing that the Company shall distribute “not less than 25 percent of the consolidated net profit before gains or losses on foreign currency exchange and shall also be subject to the future investment plans, necessity and appropriateness.”3.

first_img 29 Comments   Share   Top Stories Meanwhile, drafting Ohio State’s Nick Bosa is another interesting proposition. His political leanings are his own and no reason to avoid employing him on a football field. But Bosa reportedly deleted a Tweet that called Colin Kaepernick “a clown.” And while that’s nothing he needs to discuss with me, it’s something he’d have to explain inside the locker room, to the players who feel passion for Kaepernick, who believe he should be honored for his courage.The Cardinals are about to learn what the Suns discovered in 2018. The No. 1 pick in any draft is a blessing and a curse. It generally means your team is in really bad shape, too much for any one single player to overcome. And it leaves you open to armchair critics in the likely event that somebody other than the No. 1 selection has a better rookie season.Which brings us to Josh Rosen.During the lengthy Murray debate in Arizona, Rosen has become a sympathetic figure. Plenty of fans don’t understand the logic, how the Cardinals could trade up to draft Rosen, surround him with a garbage offense, effectively throw him to the wolves, marvel at the mental and physical toughness he displayed in 2018 … and then give up on him for a quarterback who is 5-10 1/8. NASHVILLE — The best drama flows from a powerful brew, the intoxicating blend of anticipation and uncertainty.Barring any leaks or pre-draft trades, the NFL will deliver on Thursday night. The payoff will last 10 minutes, the time allotted for the Cardinals to make the No. 1 pick in the draft.It won’t rival the feeling when Larry Fitzgerald outraced Pittsburgh defenders to the end zone, giving the Cardinals the lead in the Super Bowl. Or when Mark Grace singled off Mariano Rivera to start the ninth inning of Game 7. Either way, the NFL careers of Rosen and Murray will be linked together for eternity. Because the Cardinals can choose either. And because General Manager Steve Keim will be forever tarnished if he makes the wrong choice at the sport’s most important position. Remember, the two greatest quarterbacks in Arizona history effectively came off the scrap heap.That’s why Thursday is a career-defining night. For a lot of people in the organization.On Wednesday night, hundreds of people milled around the NFL’s enormous stage on fabled Broadway Street. Near sunset, organizers conducted something of a dress rehearsal. They flashed the Cardinals’ logo. They announced the pick was in. And my heart started racing, with anticipation and uncertainty, elements that make for the purest drama.Just imagine what it will feel like Thursday night when the Cardinals are officially on the clock with 10 minutes to declare their starting quarterback of choice.Ten minutes that might make or break their next decade of professional football in Arizona.Reach Bickley at dbickley@bonneville.com. Listen to Bickley & Marotta weekdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. But it will be something to behold. It will be something to feel.Related Links98.7 FM roundtable: What should the Cardinals do at No. 1?N’Keal Harry: ‘There’s no way’ Cardinals let him slide past pick No. 33Vegas odds heavily favor Cardinals selecting QB Kyler Murray No. 1Cardinals open mini-camp with CB Peterson MIA, Rosen in chargeUntil Monday, the Cardinals have done a marvelous job at controlling the narrative. That changed when Patrick Peterson’s recurring unhappiness emerged on social media, raising all sorts of questions. Is it possible the team is fielding trade requests for three players entering a historic night in Nashville: Peterson, Josh Rosen and the rights to Kyler Murray?The suspense trumps all.Murray raised the stakes on Wednesday morning when he failed to show at a scheduled appearance benefitting a Nashville food bank. Twenty-one other draft candidates showed up for the charitable event, assembling 8,000 food kits. Murray was the only one missing.Maybe he had good reasons for arriving in Nashville unfashionably late. Or maybe it’s the nonchalant actions of a young athlete who already knows he’s the first pick in the draft with no one left to impress. But it’s a bad look, either way. Especially if Murray had committed his presence. Especially if he just wanted to avoid the 45-minute media session that followed the event.Would that be enough for the Cardinals to move away from Murray?If I’m the owner of the team, I’m demanding some answers.

special restrictions proposed by the TSR Subramanian panel: Colleges and universities should consider derecognising student groups based “explicitly on caste and religion” (SourceL Express Photo by Tashi Tobgyal/ File) Top News A government panel with the mandate to make suggestions for the new national education policy has frowned upon political activity on campus Among the special restrictions proposed by the TSR Subramanian panel: Colleges and universities should consider derecognising student groups based “explicitly on caste and religion” Echoing the disdain and discomfort visible in the ruling dispensation with regard to campus politics — except of course that of the ABVP — the committee has expressed concern that “agitations disturbances gheraos and other disruptive movements are being increasingly witnessed on campuses” which it thinks is interfering with “normal academic activities” These recommendations are ill-thought through if not downright anti-democratic Historically campuses have been crucibles of leadership College and university students are active citizens with voting rights to general assembly and local body elections It is absurd and even undesirable to expect them to be immune to and insulated from political ideas and debates Equally the political behaviour and modes and language of organising of students are likely to be influenced by the political activity outside the campus The fact is caste and religion are markers of political identity in India and parties covertly and overtly mobilise around them What is often labelled “casteist” politics has provided valuable space for the expression and assertion of interests of historically disprivileged groups In its best version campus politics is a platform for questioning congealed inequalities and prejudices and a force for greater social inclusion In fact the absence of debate and agitation over larger social and political issues on campus in an argumentative democracy ought to be viewed as abnormal The panel’s report comes in the background of a season of unrest on campuses and a government that has revealed itself to be all too often heavy-handed and authoritarian in the face of difference and dissent From Hyderabad Central University (HCU) to FTII Pune and JNU students have been agitating on issues ranging from campus autonomy to standards of academic excellence FTII students have protested Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment because they believe he lacks the professional credentials to occupy the post and his choice has been motivated by political considerations Issues of social inclusion and the right to freedom of expression are at the heart of protests at JNU and HCU These protests have echoed and triggered important debates in society — on the freedom of expression and its limits on what constitutes nationalism This is not exceptional For instance campuses were active arenas of politics and resistance during the Emergency — leaders like Lalu Prasad Nitish Kumar Arun Jaitley Venkaiah Naidu and Sitaram Yechury are products of student politics of this era It is the irony of history that some of these leaders now want universities to be sanitised of

remains an integral expression of male power There are many things we need to know that we wish we did not have to The existence of domestic violence against women and children is one of them The use of pornography as a tool for learning and justifying such brutal behaviouris another We have lived in denial of links between the two for too longdespite ample evidence that patterns of abusive sexual dominance are often first picked up by males at home and then honed through viewing porn that furthers the idea of the inferiority of all females Recent cases of gangrape also verify what feminists and criminologists have been saying for a long time: violent abusers of young women and female children are mostly repeat offendersand known area bullies Such men will become even more prone to abusive predatory behaviour after bouts of heavy drinking and collective viewing of pornographic material with similarly inclined male friends Despite thisthe moment the issue of banning pornography or regulating the sale of alcohol comes uploud protests eruptciting the constitutional right to earning a livelihood and the basic freedom of speech and expression Thinkfor a minutethat material containing propaganda justifying the killing or torture of specific groups on the basis of caste or creed were made freely available Would we not become outragedknowing that such propaganda precedes

Article 19(1) be invoked for its continuance Even in a liberal statecan pornography be given free playeven when it comes at the cost of the free speech of women victims whoas it isdo not have full freedom of speech within homes Liberal theoreticians of both sexes are so confused by the din of the erotic versus obscene debate that they mostly refrain from delving into how pornography capitalises

feet and demanding better safety and policing of streetsended up looking schizoid as they asked for dramatically swift state intervention and gory reprisals against the guilty on behalf of the sexually abused women and childrenquite forgetting that they had found the state so useless that they wanted all leaders to resign The stateas victims of sexual violence encounter it first handis not

is true that gender is first the construct of a social systembut in a country like oursit has a long history that predates democracy There are many who still seek to explain the upswing in rapes as linked to the wide dissemination of pornographic material to new technology They like to remind us that we were a much kindersafer society just a century agobefore the birth of the present day

done well to speak out against the ban on cattle slaughter and imposition of prohibition by certain state governments in the past one year Such policies the chairman of the $4 billion-plus Godrej Group has rightly pointed out have contributed to an overall environment of negativity deflecting and diverting attention away from the economy and the larger development agenda that governments are elected to implement The cattle slaughter ban legislation passed by Maharashtra and Haryana last year clearly targeted a community many of whose members are engaged in the beef trade Moreover the ban on consumption of beef and slaughter of even non-milking cows male calves bulls or bullocks has hurtfarmers In times of drought especially of the scale that Maharashtra has witnessed for two years now farmers find it difficult to maintain cattle By killing the market for such animals — which is what cattle traders and abattoir owners essentially provided — the BJP-led government has only added to the woes of farmers in Maharashtra To the extent that the demand for prohibition is seen to come mainly from women of less privileged backgrounds who are often victims of alcohol-related violence it can even be seen as serving a legitimate public good But the arguments against prohibition are compelling They range from those that question it for offering a “moral” solution to a public health problem and as an encroachment by the state on individual freedoms to those that point out that it is ineffective and counter-productive An outright ban on consumption and trade in liquor can indeed lead to worse results from the entire business going underground If the end result is the emergence of a new police-administration-criminal nexus along with smuggling from across the border and sale of spurious liquor the damage to public interest may be more than collateral Also the desperately addicted may still get their liquor albeit at a higher price and consuming a larger share of household income Finally there is the issue of revenue Last year states together grossed over Rs 100000 crore from alcohol That includes Rs 4000 crore for Bihar (which under Nitish Kumar has already imposed prohibition) and Rs 8000 crore for Tamil Nadu (where virtually every party has promised it in the current assembly elections) The revenue foregone would obviously have to be compensated through higher taxes including on essential goods and services Again that leaves families worse off than before Godrej’s forthright observations should be viewed as a call for restoring sobriety in public policymaking This is as much about bringing the focus back on governance and development as it is about avoiding actions that ultimately serve to only divide the people or to create new problems in
