LONDON, May 1 (Reuters) – British bookmaker Ladbrokes
has hired Jim Mullen from William Hill to run
its online operations, as it seeks to emulate the success of its
larger rival in the fast-growing sector.
William Hill has expanded online and internationally in
recent years, pulling clear of Ladbrokes as Britain’s largest
bookmaker and entering the FTSE 100 index of leading
companies on Wednesday.

LONDON, April 29 (Reuters) – The company behind Formula One
motor racing could be floated in Singapore at the end of this
year if markets remain benign, the sport’s chief executive
Bernie Ecclestone said on Monday.
Plans to raise up to $3 billion by listing the firm that
runs the high-speed racing series were pulled last June amid
market turmoil following the flotation of social network group
Facebook, which saw its shares plunge after their debut.

LONDON (Reuters) – The company behind British-based Formula One team Williams slumped to a 5 million pound pretax loss in 2012, after an accounting change deprived it of a slice of revenue from its involvement in the motor sport.
The loss, which compares with a pretax profit of 7.4 million pounds the year before, is a further disappointment for the former world champion team, which is yet to score any points in Formula One this season.
