12.19.2018 Wednesday 1 sT. LOUIs POsT-dIsPaTCH A13MARKET WATCH Regal closes movie theater at mall in Hazelwood The Regal Cinemas 18 screen movie theater at the outlet mall formerly known as St. Louis Mills in Hazelwood has closed. The movie theater was one of the few tenants remaining at the enclosed mall, which opened in 2003, was later renamed St. Louis Outlet Mall and is now mostly vacant.

A store remains open at the property. Namdar Realty Group, a New York buyer of distressed malls across the country, acquired the mall in 2016. A mall representative said the theater closed last week. Big Sports Properties, led by former newscaster and former St. Patrick Center CEO Dan Buck, has proposed turning the mall into a regional youth sports complex called the PowerPlex.

The proposed project includes plans for a 1.7 million-square-foot recreational building and a 120-foot-tall athletic dome. Boeing sets new $20 billion buyback plan Boeing Co. directors authorized a record $20 billion share buyback program and boosted the dividend 20 percent a sign the planemaker intend to stop showering cash on investors any time soon. The share price has more than doubled since it embarked on a strategy of rewarding shareholders as production of the marquee 787 Dreamliner stabilized six years ago. Over that time, Boeing has repurchased 230 million of its shares and hoisted its dividend 325 percent.

Boeing said it repurchased $9 billion in shares this year. By comparison, analysts have speculated that the manufacturer would need to spend about $10 billion to develop a new midrange plane, which would be its first all- new jetliner since the 787. Boeing said it expected buybacks under the new plan to begin in January and be made over the next 24 months.

will take a charge of about $443 million arising from store closures, a regulatory filing showed on Tuesday. The company said some of the charges have already been incurred in the third quarter, while the remaining charges will be booked in the fourth quarter. Total costs related to closing 73 Sears stores and 28 Kmart stores in the third quarter ended Nov. 3 amounted to $229 million, the company said earlier this month. The charges entail markdowns, severance costs and lease termination costs arising from store closures, which the company announced in October, when it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Sears Chairman Eddie Lampert made a $4.6 billion offer to buy the U.S. retailer earlier this month, which called for about 500 Sears stores to remain open.

Mike Parson said Tues- day that he wanted to enact a law enabling the state to col- lect millions of dollars of new tax revenue from out-of-state retailers who sell things to Mis- souri residents. The new online sales tax pro- vision will be part of agenda for the legislative ses- sion that starts Jan. 9, the gov- ernor said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Though there is no defini- tive plan yet for the potential new revenue, it could help pro- pel other aspects of agenda to boost infrastructure funding and workforce devel- opment. The U.S. Supreme Court opened the door for states to rake in greater online sales tax collections in a June rul- ing that upheld a South Dakota law.

In such cases, customers technically were responsible for paying the tax, but most As online commerce has grown, some large retailers such as Amazon already had begun collecting sales taxes for all 45 states that charge them.
