The protesters said the company had moved its key offices namely the finance/Treasury, minor contracts, major contracts recruitment, community front desk, contracts/procurement and logistics departments from Warri to Port Harcourt.

The Guardian: Macho cash

The Guardian: Macho cash

25 May 2005

The “headline” profits of £10.3bn trumpeted by Vodafone yesterday might have qualified as the Biggest Profit Turned By A British Company – except that would have been misleading.

Followers of the bulge bracket corporate scene this year will have first seen Shell declared as the leader in February with £9.4bn, only to be eclipsed a month later by HSBC with £9.6bn.
