The package might be $28 million lighter than the original ambit claim, but so too is the amount CCA has agreed to invest. It means SPC lives on in Shepparton and CCA will be able to write off a big chunk of its fruit and vegetable subsidiary when it reports its results next week.

The LB rules implemented were effective as they saved in excess of €500k in labour costs, reduced waste physically by more than 10% but have identified far more costly hidden wastes and are still working on these, highlighting the benefits of the LB rules on people.

In each circle there are around 9-10 operators competing for the same revenue pie which is not growing. Lower tariff and high introductory offers which the industry saw during 2009 resulted in multiple SIM ownership and reduced realization per minute of use. The new operators who entered the market during 2009 offered subscriptions at throw away prices loaded with free talk time.
