    MORGAN STANLEY: Executives say IT budgets are growing in 2019 and Amazon, Salesforce and Microsoft are set to win big (MSFT, AMZN, CRM)· IT budgets are still growing, according to a Morgan Stanley survey of chief information officers in the US and Europe.
    · CIOs in the US expect their budgets to grow 5.5% in 2019. That's up from 5.3% in 2018.
    · The big winner will be software, according to the report, where spending is expected to grow the most.

    Forget market volatility — companies continue to grow their IT budget and their allocations for buying new software, according to Morgan Stanley.

    Morgan Stanley talked to 100 chief information officers in the US and Europe for its quarterly survey and found that CIOs expect their IT budgets to grow 4.7% in 2019. That growth is slightly down from 2018, when CIOs expected their budgets to grow 4.9%. The 2019 decline stems primarily from European CIOs, according to the report.  

    CIOs in the US actually expect to see 2019 budgets grow by 5.5%, which is up from 5.3% in 2018.

    The big winner, according to the survey, is software, which CIOs said will grow 5.2% in 2019. Amazon and Microsoft are the biggest gainers of "IT wallet share," according to the survey, since so many companies will spend money on public cloud services, the market where those two companies lead.

    Salesforce is also well-positioned to benefit from public cloud adoption, according to the report.

    CIOs expect to increase their spending on IT services by 4% in 2019, up from 3.7% in 2018. In addition, 28% of the CIOs surveyed expect to over-spend their budgets when it comes to IT services.

    Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss wrote that companies like HCL, CTSH, Deloitte, and CAP are well-positioned to win from this spending. ACN was one of the top five companies most likely to benefit from spending on cloud migration, according to the report.

    Spending in hardware, however, is not seeing the same growth. CIOs expect their hardware budgets to grow by just 2.2% in 2019. When these CIOs were surveyed last quarter in October 2018, they predicted 2.5% growth. US respondents in particular expect their hardware spending to grow by just 2%, according to the survey.

    "The downtick is a signal that US-based tax reform and cash repatriation were meaningful positive catalysts last year with growth slowing on the more difficult comps," wrote Morgan Stanley's Keith Weiss.

    MONTREAL, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Cogeco Inc. (TSX: CGO) (“Cogeco” or the “Corporation”) announced its financial results for the first quarter ended November 30, 2018, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

    For the first quarter of fiscal 2019:

    · Revenue increased by 15.1% (13.1% in constant currency) to reach $674.0 million driven by growth of 16.3% (14.2% in constant currency) in the Communications segment, partly offset by a decrease of 5.4% in the Other segment. Revenue increased in the Communications segment mostly as a result of the acquisition of the MetroCast cable systems ("the MetroCast acquisition") on January 4, 2018, partly offset by a decrease of 5.4% in the Other segment resulting mainly from a soft advertising market and increased competition in the media activities;
     
    · Adjusted EBITDA increased by 15.0% (13.1% in constant currency) to reach $293.9 million mostly attributable to the improvement in the Communications segment as a result of the MetroCast acquisition;
     
    · Profit for the period amounted to $79.1 million of which $26.2 million, or $1.61 per share, was attributable to owners of the Corporation compared to $81.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 of which $29.5 million, or $1.80 per share, was attributable to owners of the Corporation resulting mainly from the increases in depreciation and amortization,  financial expense and integration, restructuring and acquisition costs, partly offset by the improvement of adjusted EBITDA and the decrease in income taxes;
     
    · Free cash flow increased by 9.3% (8.6% in constant currency) to reach $119.3 million as a result of the improvement in adjusted EBITDA and a decrease in current income taxes expense, partly offset by the increases in financial expense, acquisitions of property, plant and equipment and integration, restructuring and acquisition costs;
     
    · Cash flow from operating activities reached $111.8 million compared to $1.5 million for the same period of the prior year mainly due to the improvement in adjusted EBITDA and the decrease in income taxes paid, partly offset by the increase in financial expense paid;· At its January 10, 2019 meeting, the Board of Directors of Cogeco declared a quarterly eligible dividend of $0.43 compared to $0.39 per share in the comparable period of fiscal 2018;· On December 6, 2018, the Corporation's subsidiary, Cogeco Communications, confirmed that it has elected to not participate in the auction process for licenses in the 600 MHz spectrum band that will take place in 2019. The structure of the auction based on large geographic areas makes the acquisition of such spectrum uneconomical. This decision is consistent with Cogeco Communications' continued commitment to pursue opportunities to enter the wireless market in a disciplined and thoughtful manner. Following the acquisition of spectrum licenses in fiscal 2018, Cogeco Communications is committed to continue exploring various business models in order to launch a profitable wireless service;· On December 4, 2018, Cogeco Communications extended its $800 million Term Revolving Facility maturity date by an additional year until January 24, 2024;· On December 3, 2018, the Corporation amended its $50 million Term Revolving Facility resulting in an increase in the availability to $100 million, and an extension of the maturity date by an additional year until February 1, 2024;· On November 26, 2018, the Corporation's subsidiary, Cogeco Media, completed the acquisition of 10 regional radio stations from RNC Média inc. and has expanded its network of radio stations to 22 across the province of Québec and 1 in Ontario. The transaction, valued at $19.2 million, is subject to closing adjustments and was approved on October 11, 2018 by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ("CRTC"); and· On October 3, 2018, Cogeco Communications' subsidiary,  Atlantic Broadband, completed the acquisition of the south Florida fibre network previously owned by FiberLight, LLC which provides high-performance metro and long-haul fibre transport services. The closing of this deal marks the addition of 350 route miles to Atlantic Broadband’s existing south Florida footprint.^(1) The indicated terms do not have standardized definitions prescribed by IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. For more details, please consult the “Non-IFRS financial measures” section of the MD&A.

    “Overall results for the first quarter are in line with our 2019 financial guidance,” declared Philippe Jetté, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cogeco Inc. “At Cogeco Connexion, the stabilization phase related to the implementation of a new advanced customer management system extended into the first quarter as anticipated. I am confident that as of today these issues are mostly behind us and that operations in our Canadian broadband services operations are now running as expected.”

    “In our American broadband services operations, we are pleased to report continued solid organic growth,” stated Mr. Jetté. “The acquisition of FiberLight’s south Florida fibre network has more than doubled Atlantic Broadband’s fibre footprint in the region, further expanding our presence in this strategic growth market.”

    “Results in our Business ICT services operations reflect the continued increase in competition and pricing pressures in this market,” added Mr. Jetté. “Cogeco Peer 1 continues to focus on priorities such as driving efficiencies, offering a relevant suite of solutions and providing expert service to our customers.”

    “In our radio business, although the advertising market continues to be soft, we were pleased to end the quarter by closing the acquisition of 10 regional radio stations owned by RNC Média inc.,” concluded Mr. Jetté. “Cogeco Media now has a network of 22 radio stations across the province of Québec and 1 in Ontario, providing an excellent opportunity to enhance our position in this industry while enriching our offering for both listeners and broadcasters.”

    MONTRÉAL, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Cogeco Communications Inc. (TSX: CCA) (“Cogeco Communications” or the “Corporation”) announced its financial results for the first quarter ended November 30, 2018, in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

    For the first quarter of fiscal 2019:

    • Revenue increased by 16.3% to reach $643.3 million mainly driven by growth of 61.5% in the American broadband services segment, partly offset by decreases of 1.4% in the Canadian broadband services segment and 3.2% in the Business information and communications technology ("Business ICT") services segment. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased by 14.2%, mainly explained as follows:· American broadband services revenue increased by 55.0% in constant currency mainly as a result of the acquisition of the MetroCast cable systems ("the MetroCast acquisition") on January 4, 2018. The increase was also attributable to rate increases implemented in August 2018, the continued growth in Internet and telephony services customers, partly offset by a decrease in video service customers;

    · Canadian broadband services revenue decreased by 1.4% in constant currency mainly as a result of a decline in primary service units. This is directly related to lower service activations that resulted from the migration to a new advanced customer management system. This issue is of a temporary nature and will allow Cogeco Connexion to provide improved customer service and greater interaction capabilities in the future. Marketing activities were reduced during the stabilization phase due to contact center congestion, and both have returned to normal at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Moreover, revenue has also been impacted by the timing of rate increases implemented in November 2018 in both Ontario and Québec compared to September 2017 and November 2017, respectively, for the same period of the prior year. The decrease was partly offset by lower promotional pricing provided to customers;

    · Business ICT services revenue decreased by 5.0% in constant currency primarily due to higher churn and competitive pricing pressures on the hosting and network connectivity services;

    • Adjusted EBITDA increased by 15.7% to reach $285.5 million. On a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA increased by 13.8%, mainly as a result of the following:· American broadband services adjusted EBITDA increased by 81.6% in constant currency mainly as a result of the MetroCast acquisition; partly offset by
    · Canadian broadband services adjusted EBITDA decreased by 5.7% in constant currency mainly as a result of a decline in revenue and $3.2 million in additional retroactive costs related to higher rates than expected established by the Copyright Board of Canada for the retransmission of distant Canadian and American television signals in Canada from 2014 to 2018, combined with $4.5 million additional costs to support the stabilization phase of the new advanced customer management system; and
    · Business ICT services adjusted EBITDA decreased by 12.3% in constant currency as a result of a decline in revenue.

    • Profit for the period amounted to $75.2 million, of which $70.2 million, or $1.42 per share, was attributable to owners of the Corporation compared to $76.4 million, or $1.55 per share, in the comparable period of fiscal 2018 resulting mainly from the increases in depreciation and amortization, financial expense and integration, restructuring and acquisition costs, partly offset by the improvement of adjusted EBITDA and the decrease in income taxes;

    • Free cash flow increased by 11.2% to reach $113.9 million. On a constant currency basis, free cash flow increased by 10.5% as a result of the improvement in adjusted EBITDA and a decrease in current income taxes expense, partly offset by the increases in financial expense, acquisitions of property, plant and equipment and integration, restructuring and acquisition costs;

    • Cash flow from operating activities reached $107.7 million compared to $5.4 million for the same period of the prior year mainly due to the improvement in adjusted EBITDA and the decrease in income taxes paid, partly offset by the increase in financial expense paid;

    • At its January 10, 2019 meeting, the Board of Directors of Cogeco Communications declared a quarterly eligible dividend of $0.525 compared to $0.475 per share in the comparable quarter of fiscal 2018;

    • On December 6, 2018, Cogeco Communications confirmed that it has elected to not participate in the auction process for licenses in the 600 MHz spectrum band that will take place in 2019.

    The freezer bags market is expected to grow fast in the years ahead, owing to the increasing consumption of meat globally. With the rising population in developing countries, such as India, China, and Brazil, the demand for processed food is expected to boost the demand for freezer bags in the food industry. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry has grown drastically in the last few years, which, in turn, is expected to increase the use of freezer bags for pharmaceutical packaging. These are some other factors that are likely to support the freezer bags market in the future on a global scale. However, due to stringent government regulations on plastic use and fluctuating prices of raw materials might hamper the freezer bags market. On the other hand, the increasing research and development activities in the production of freezer bags are estimated to offer several opportunities to the market players in the future.

    The global freezer bags market is classified based on type, material, and application. By type, the global freezer bags market includes flat bags, satchel bags, and block bottom bags. Satchel freezer bags held the largest market share, followed by block bottom bags. The share of block bottom bags is expected to grow at the fastest pace over the forecast time period. By material, the global freezer bags market includes high-density polyethylene (HDPE), medium-density polyethylene (MDPE), and low-density polyethylene (LDPE). High-density polyethylene is likely to dominate the global freezer bags market in the future, owing to its wide usage to manufacture freezer bags. By application, the global freezer bags market includes food, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and others.

    Toyota Mexico releases clip of new 2019 sports car ahead of Detroit; reveals how BMW-sourced 3.0-litre six-cylinder will sound

    A video of the upcoming Toyota Supra appears to have been leaked by the firm's own Mexican marketing division, ahead of the car's official unveiling at January's Detroit motor show. 

    The trailer appeared on Toyota Mexio's Twitter page, and was swiftly taken down again - but not before it could be reuploaded to YouTube by fans eager for the Mk V Supra.

    *Read our review of the 2019 Toyota Supra prototype *

    The video shows the car from all angles, revealing that the design of the 2019 Supra is, as expected, substantially in line with the previously seen concepts and prototypes. Some of the excesses of the FT-1 and Supra Racing concept cars substantially pared back, but the car retains its distinctive, sporty look.

    According a title card at the end of the clip, the car will be called the Toyota GR Supra, a nod to Gazoo Racing, the firm's sporting division which has both produced road cars such as the Yaris GRMN and runs the firm's World Rally Championship team.

    Previously - as part of an official teaser campaign - a video had been released revealing the note of the Supra's 3.0-litre straight six engine.

    The short video on Toyota Europe's YouTube page also featured blurred action of the Porsche Cayman rival in action, but the focus was on showcasing the sound of the BMW-derived engine. Toyota described it as highlighting "the sound of its harmonious song." 

    The latest leaks follow on from an earlier detailed shot of the Supra's front end, taken when the car was on a transporter, published on forum dedicated to the new car and in our gallery above.

    Deliveries of the new sports car will begin soon after the Detroit reveal, Toyota has confirmed, with the first cars due to be seen in the first half of next year.

    The Supra name will be back on a Toyota sports car for first time since 2002, development of this model having taken place alongside the new BMW Z4. Development started in 2012 as one of a series of projects between Toyota and BMW. 

    Power comes from a BMW-sourced 3.0-litre straight-six engine with around 340bhp and 350lb ft. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

    The Supra, which also features a BMW M Active limited-slip differential, weighs around 1500kg and has a 50:50 weight distribution, its body constructed of a blend of steel and aluminium. 

    The model's lengthy gestation period has led to a series of leaks and drip-feed of information in the build-up to its hotly anticipated launch. Previous images that surfaced on a parts catalogue site showed three different wheel sizes for three different specs, as well as the availability of turbocharged four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines. 

    Key detailed elements of the Supra's styling such as the front lights, bumper, dashboard with digital instrument display, rear bumper and splitter were shown separately, giving more hints as to what the car will look like. It also suggested the car will feature the distinctive, script-like Supra logo seen on the previous-generation car.

    Chief engineer for the project, Tetsuya Tada, previously told Autocar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the car made its dynamic debut, some of the tech specs of the new model. 

    “I can’t disclose specific figures, but the output of this engine is on a par with that which we have with the F-Series from Lexus,” Tada said. "The RC-F and GS-F make 389lb ft," he continued, “but you can imagine from seeing it that the car is light and compact – its wheelbase is even shorter than the GT86’s. It’s around 200-300kg lighter than the F-Series [which weighs around 1700-1800kg].”

    The Supra's expected 1500kg makes it 250kg heavier than the GT86 and 14kg lighter than the fourth-generation Supra, which went out of production in 2002. This would also make the car 14kg lighter than a PDK-equipped Porsche 911 Carrera S, with which the Supra's expected 0-62mph time of 3.8sec would make it most comparable.

    *Goodwood Festival of Speed live coverage*

    While Lexus’s 5.0-litre V8 is naturally aspirated and makes its peak torque at nearly 5000rpm, the BMW-sourced turbocharged straight-six unit is likely to produce its peak power in the 2500rpm range.

    Tada said that the Supra will be neutrally balanced and perhaps even more focused than the GT86 sports car, for which he was also the chief engineer. “The centre of gravity is lower than the GT86’s,” Tada said, “and body rigidity is twice that of the GT86.”

    As with the GT86, insiders have stated that driving pleasure will rank above outright performance. Tada told Autocar earlier this year: "It's really fun to drive this car. Front engines, rear drive… with such a concept, you can have the greatest amount of fun to enjoy a drive in the world. It's fun on the road as well as the race track, the autobahn and the English countryside."

    Tada emphasised that the Supra and Z4 will be very different from one another, suggesting that while they share several common parts, their handling will differ by quite some margin. He said: "It's different to the Z4; they are two different cars. We didn't start by finding common parts. We worked on our own ideas to see what cars we wanted to create, then we shared ideas to identify where we can share common parts."

    An earlier sighting of the Supra's interior showed BMW switchgear, including a dashboard-mounted infotainment screen and accompanying rotary dial controller on the central tunnel, as well as BMW heating control buttons and a BMW automatic gear selector. Toyota might fit its own parts to the final car's interior, but this sighting suggests the electrical architecture beneath will be based on BMW's systems.

    Toyota hinted at the performance focus of its upcoming sports car with the reveal of a GR Supra Racing Concept at this year's Geneva motor show. That model, which was badged under the firm's performance arm, Gazoo Racing, was a pared-back and more hardcore version of the Supra.

    Toyota executives have previously revealed intentions to produce several variants of the Supra with different power outputs, suggesting the motorsport-inspired concept revealed at the 2018 Geneva motor show was hinting at a future range-topping version, likely to be badged as a GRMN. Toyota is also likely to widely race the new Supra in sports car championships worldwide.

    A hybrid version of the car is also predicted to come as part of the BMW tie-up, with both the Supra and Z4 due with electrified four-wheel-drive powertrains at a later stage. Both BMW and Toyota are experts in high-performance hybrid power, with the former having launched the i8 back in 2014 and the latter competing in the World Endurance Championship and winning Le Mans with its TS030 Hybrid. Toyota's racing-derived energy-storing supercapacitors are due to be fitted to the Supra to power its electrified drive hardware.

    First previewed by the FT-1 concept of 2014, the design of the next Supra is slightly toned down compared with the concepts that have preceded it. While the FT-1's overall silhouette is familiar, with the headlights, tail-lights and double-bubble roof remaining, the car does away with aggressive features such as side air intakes and a fixed rear wing.
