Ex Cadbury boss: Let’s query overseas bids

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Thursday 21 October 2010 9:11 pm FORMER Cadbury chair Roger Carr yesterday called on the government to rethink its free-market stance on foreign takeovers, after the Takeover Panel recommended only modest reforms to UK rules.Carr, who initiated a heated debate over the scope of the Takeover Code after US food giant Kraft’s acquisition of Cadbury, said the Panel had tackled the “practical and tactical” issues in its review, which stopped short of introducing the most extreme measures under consideration. But he said it fell to the government to address the “philosophical” aspects of foreign takeovers in its own ongoing review led by business secretary Vince Cable – considering in particular the merits of increasing the bid acceptance threshold to above the current 50 per cent-plus-one-share level and of disenfranchising shares held by short-term investors.“The Panel’s recommendations will not tip the scales back in favour of target companies, but they will help make the process fairer,” Carr told City A.M. “However, if as a country we are more accessible to foreign control than other countries are, we need to look at changing the philosophical stance on it rather than just the rule book – and that decision is a matter for the government.”The Panel defended its decision not to recommend the higher threshold and disenfranchisement options, arguing that respondents to its consultation had been almost unanimously opposed to them and that both measures would be ineffective without changing company law.Roger Barke at the Institute of Directors welcomed the Panel’s decision to err on the side of caution and said introducing more radical measures would have been “a mistake”.The most significant of the new measures is a rule designed to trigger a put-up-or-shut-up deadline of four weeks as soon as an approach is revealed, a measure which was broadly welcomed by the City as a relatively radical step in the right direction.The Panel also recommended prohibiting deal protection measures such as “break fees” when a takeover is abandoned, as well as forcing bidders to disclose offer-related fees, how they plan to finance a bid and their intentions with regard to the future of the target company and its staff.Matthew Fell, the CBI’s director for competitive markets, said: “Greater transparency is welcome to help ensure that the prospect of fees on completion of a deal does not bias the likelihood of it happening.” Ex Cadbury boss: Let’s query overseas bids Share whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

FTSE opens higher ahead of key data

first_img Tags: NULL FTSE opens higher ahead of key data whatsapp The FTSE 100 rose on opening this morning with heavyweight miners likely to be buoyed by a softer dollar after the Group of 20 major economies agreed to avoid competitive currency devaluations.The blue chip index looks set to gain 43 to 48 points, or as much as 0.8 percent, according to financial bookmakers, after it closed 16.49 points, or 0.3 percent, lower at 5,741.37 on Friday, retreating after hitting a six-month closing high in the previous session.In terms of domestic economic data, preliminary third-quarter GDP data, due on Tuesday, should attract a lot of attention.With nothing significant due on Monday, investors will look ahead to releases later in the week including the October Nationwide house price index on Thursday along with October’s CBI distributive trades survey, with GfK October consumer confidence data due after the market’s close that day.On Friday, investors will look at Bank of England September consumer credit, mortgage lending and mortgage approvals data.On the other side of the Atlantic, a speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, could outline details of an expected new round of US monetary stimulus.Later in the week, the August US Case-Shiller house price index along with October Conference Board U.S. consumer confidence data is due on Tuesday, September’s US durable goods and new home sales data are scheduled for release on Wednesday, weekly US jobless claims data is due on Thursday, with US GDP data out on Friday. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Danish banks play down Amagerbanken exposure

first_imgMonday 7 February 2011 9:08 pm Show Comments ▼ DENMARK’S biggest financial institution Danske Bank and Nordic bank Nordea said yesterday they had little exposure to Amagerbanken, which fell into state hands on Sunday.Jyske Bank and Sydbank also said they were not exposed to Amagerbanken, which failed to meet solvency requirements and is to be wound up by state administrators. But Denmark will still be lumbered with a $2.8bn (£1.7bn) bill, as Amagerbanken became the country’s tenth bank to fall into the state’s hands in the wake of the global financial crisis.Amagerbanken has said it will transfer its assets to Finansiel Stabilitet, the state company that administers failed banks, allowing administrators to close the bank.Amagerbanken, which was Denmark’s eighth biggest bank in terms of lending, said fourth-quarter writedowns wiped out its equity, attributing a large part to failed property investors. The failure of Amagerbanken was roughly the same size as the mid-2008 collapse of Roskilde Bank, previously the biggest Danish bank failure.

In a hastily-arranged court hearing the evening after the company’s general meeting, shareholders were granted an injunction to force Shannon to comply with the rescue plan’s terms. It included a pledge from three key investors to supply £10m if they could appoint a new executive chairman.“Following the request of the board John Shannon has today resigned with immediate effect,” AssetCo said in a statement.Tudor Davies is now leading the company as executive chairman. Tim Wightman has stepped down as chairman and Christopher Mills has joined the board as a non-executive director.Shareholders were said to have grown frustrated with Shannon since AssetCo admitted in February it was struggling to raise £4m in short-term debt while it refinanced a £50m long-term loan facility. The problems quickly grew, leading to a proposed £8m and then £16m share placement. AssetCo now believes it requires an extra £3-4m of working capital in addition to the £16m just raised. AssetCo’s shares closed 3.6 per cent down at 13.5p on the news. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

WHAT THE OTHER PAPERS SAY THIS MORNING

Oman’s Renaissance Services blamed the “increasingly uncertain investment climate for new issues caused by international events” for the decision.ALL3MEDIA LINES UP POSSIBLE SALEAll3Media, the UK’s largest independent television producer, has appointed UBS to conduct a strategic review that is likely to result in a sale of the business with a price range of between £600m and £750m. The maker of Skins, Undercover Boss and Shameless has had informal conversations about a sale in the past year.CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF ACER RESIGNSGianfranco Lanci, Acer’s chief executive and global president, has resigned from the Taiwanese computer maker, the latest top executive to fall because of a failure to react quickly enough to the rapid changes sweeping through the consumer electronics industry. Lanci’s resignation came after the Asia’s biggest PC group by sales said last week that first-quarter results would be worse than expected, the second straight quarter that it would miss guidance.M&S STARTS TALKS ON NEW PAY STRUCTUREMarks and Spencer has begun consulting shareholders on a new executive pay plan that could see remuneration linked more closely to the strategic plans set out by chief executive Marc Bolland. One big shareholder described the talks on the new pay plan as “constructive” in terms of its parameters, structure and scale.THE TIMESTENPIN BOWLER TAKES AIM AT LOSS-MAKING SITESBritain’s second-biggest tenpin bowling operator has hired advisers to renegotiate leases on up to a third of its estate in an effort to return the venues to profit. Essenden, which runs 37 centres under the Tenpin brand, said that it had appointed Ernst & Young to “look at the full range of options” for restructuring the loss-making sites. HSBC ON COLLISION COURSE OVER PAYOUTSHSBC has clashed with shareholders over a controversial plan to change its bonus arrangements for senior management, which critics believe could lead to over-generous payouts. Britain’s biggest bank has suggested a radical approach to long-term incentive plans. The plan would be the first of its kind.The Daily TelegraphCURRENCY DEALER INTERCHANGE ORGANIZATION ON BRINK OF COLLAPSEThousands more holidaymakers have seen their savings put at risk because of problems at an unregulated foreign exchange company. Interchange Organization, the owner of Interchangefx, was teetering on the verge of collapse yesterday with accountants Moore Stephens trying to put together a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) to deal with its mounting debts. ARM IN DEMAND AFTER IPAD 2With the recently-launched iPad 2 high on gadget geeks’ wish lists, investors were also piling into the company behind the “brains” of Apple’s tablet computer – ARM Holdings. The source of their optimism was a bullish note from Bank of America-Merrill Lynch.THE WALL STREET JOURNALTURKISH BANKER QUITS One of Turkey’s top bankers resigned amid growing tension between commercial banks and the government over pressures to cut lending. Ersin Ozince, general manager of Turkiye Is Bankasi and head of the Turkish Bankers Association said at a news conference yesterday that he was stepping down from both posts to establish a goat farm.HIGH GRAIN PRICES HERE TO STAY There will be little respite from high global grain prices next year if the US Department of Agriculture’s predictions are accurate. US corn prices soared to their daily limit in Chicago, and wheat and soybean prices also rose as the first forecast for US grain plantings this year pointed to tight supplies well into the 2011-12 crop season. Acreage devoted to corn will expand by four million acres this year. last_img read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Despite Brexit getting firmly underway and some removal of economic uncertainty, the outcome of the split isn’t exactly clear yet. As a result, the Bank of England kept interest rates unchanged last week, and kept the door open for both cuts or increases depending on how the UK economy fares going forward. In this scenario, it can be tempting to consider options that carry the minimum risk when investing my first £500.  5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Considering Cash ISA, buy to let, and gold One of these options is the Cash ISA. But the interest rates on these accounts is abysmally low, and there are no prospects of their rising anytime soon. Another popular investment avenue is buy-to-let property, but as appealing as it is for creating regular income, it has its downside too.          Gold investments have a special allure during downtimes. Globally, last year was a tough one. The US and China were caught in a trade-related deadlock, the Brexit process was going nowhere fast in the UK, and there was political unrest in Hong Kong. Global growth slowed down to its lowest since the financial crisis.  It’s little wonder that prices for the yellow metal have been trudging up slowly but surely since mid-last year and are up by almost 20% since. Yet, there’s no guarantee that they will continue to rise in the future if things turn for the better. Holding gold is a good idea in so far as it’s an insurance for bad times. But there are potentially more lucrative opportunities to consider in the current times, which may well get much better.  FTSE 100 looks good The stock markets are one of them. If I’m looking to invest my first £500, the FTSE 100 is where I’d put it. It’s true that the performance of the index itself has been underwhelming over the past year. But there are plenty of stocks that offer high dividend yields or capital appreciation or a combination of both.  If I’m interested in generating a predictable income from my stock portfolio, instead of engaging in active buying and selling, then I’d consider predictable stocks with high dividend yields. My top pick in this set is the telecommunications provider BT, and I’ve invested in it myself. It has a yield of 9.8% as I write and will quite likely continue being a winning stock for the income investor.  If I’m interested in capital appreciation, there are plenty of stocks available that have shown good growth over the past year. I quite like the real estate portal Rightmove right now, because of the prospects for internet-based businesses, the green shoots of an upturn in the property market, and the fact that its share price has risen 50% from last year.  If I want a mix of both dividends and growth, I’d consider the Anglo-Australian miner Rio Tinto, which currently offers a dividend yield of almost 6% and has seen a doubling in share price over the past five years.  However we like to invest, there are a number of options available in the FTSE 100, and I reckon they’ll hold us in good stead. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Manika Premsingh | Friday, 7th February, 2020 center_img Manika Premsingh owns shares of BT GROUP PLC ORD 5P.

AgriNovus Indiana Releases Assessment of the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for the Indiana…

first_img AgriNovus Indiana Releases Assessment of the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for the Indiana Agbiosciences By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 11, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE AgriNovus Indiana today released a study providing an extensive assessment of the Indiana agbiosciences entrepreneurial ecosystem. AgriNovus commissioned the study to better understand the environment needed for innovation and entrepreneurship to thrive in Indiana. Entrepreneurial ventures have been found to be key drivers of new technology and also job creation. The study found that in order for Indiana to be the home to unparalleled agbioscience talent and innovation, a robust entrepreneurial community, culture and infrastructure is needed.“Indiana has succeeded in developing a strong ‘entrepreneur-friendly’ business environment by providing support tools and creating effective networks throughout the state,” said Beth Bechdol, president and CEO of AgriNovus Indiana. “This study provides us and our statewide partners with a fair evaluation of our current entrepreneurial ecosystem and support systems. More importantly, it also gives us a roadmap to achieve one of our most important missions – to inspire an entrepreneurial mindset and accelerate early-stage companies.”According to the study, The Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for Agbiosciences in Indiana, from EntreWorks Consulting and Innovation Policyworks, Indiana innovation and entrepreneurship benefit greatly from the presence of key anchor institutions, such as Purdue University and Indiana University, and major agbiosciences employers such as Corteva Agriscience, Elanco, Beck’s Hybrids, Clabber Girl, Ag Alumni Seed, United Animal Health, among others. These institutions are driving new innovation and technologies, and the state hosts a strong base of technical and scientific talent focused on the agbiosciences.The assessment also includes profiles of six other regions recognized for their strategic approaches to entrepreneurship, innovation and, in some cases, to the agbiosciences. The recent experiences of these regions demonstrate the benefit of well-coordinated and intentional strategies and also significant innovation projects that have tangible impacts on regional economic performance. Likewise, Indiana’s entrepreneurial pipeline and community continue to be strengthened through a number of significant initiatives including the development of the 16 Tech Innovation District in Indianapolis and the expansion of Purdue’s Discovery Park, among others.AgriNovus and its partners are well-positioned to build a stronger overall agbiosciences entrepreneurial ecosystem through several key strategies outlined in the study:Building the pipeline of agbioscience entrepreneurs in Indiana;Accelerating agbioscience entrepreneurs in Indiana;Connecting agbioscience entrepreneurs to existing resources; andDeveloping new resources targeted to the unique needs of agbioscience entrepreneurs.“Completing this study admittedly demonstrates how much of a challenge lies ahead for us. There is much work to be done, but it is also encouraging to recognize the significant progress that we and our partners are already making in executing on some of the study’s recommendations,” said Dan Dawes, senior director of innovation and strategy for AgriNovus. “AgriNovus is prepared to continue its collaboration with various stakeholders around the state to build a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem.”To encourage the collaboration necessary to execute these strategies, the report recommends several specific tactics. AgriNovus is already implementing a number of these, including:Building a Network. Today, in conjunction with the study release, AgriNovus is publishing an Ag+Bio+Science Start-up Directory on the AgriNovus website. Profiles on 30 agbioscience start-up and emerging companies in Indiana are available and clearly demonstrate the sector’s entrepreneurial growth and expansion. Applications for the directory are here.

Last November, SVG Partners, a California-based venture and innovation firm, collaborated with AgriNovus to bridge West Coast and Midwest agbioscience innovation through an expansion of their THRIVE accelerator program to Indianapolis. The new program will have a plant biotechnology and livestock/animal health focus and is supported by Elanco, the National Pork Board, Purdue University, AgriNovus and others. Agbioscience entrepreneurs also benefit from the Purdue Ag-Celerator as a resource for start-ups focused on the plant sciences, and AgriNovus is also a new partner in gener8tor’s gBETA program in Indianapolis, which has had multiple agbioscience firms participate in its recent cohorts. Hosting a Pitch Competition. AgriNovus has hosted a showcase event the last two years to draw attention to the innovation and start-up activity in the agbiosciences. This year’s Ag+Bio+Science Start-up Showcase will be on April 23 at the Biltwell Event Center with Purdue Ventures and Elevate Ventures as presenting sponsors. Two People’s Choice awards will be presented at this year’s event, and Julie Borlaug, vice president of communications and public relations for Inari, will be a featured speaker.The full study, The Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for Agbiosciences in Indiana, is available at www.AgriNovusIndiana.com.Source: AgriNovus Indiana Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

White, Sr., Senior Pastor, Victory Bible Full Gospel Bible Church, Pasadena. Bishop Milton M. White, Sr. exemplifies the hallmark characteristics of a devoted shepherd as noted in I Samuel 16:18. Proving brave and fearless against every challenge to meet a need, strong in faith, character and compassion, he has good judgment concerning that over which he is steward, and the Lord is with him as the favor of God is evident in all that he sets his hands to do.A preacher since the early age of 11, even as a young boy Milton White had an intimate relationship with the Lord and the ability to clearly hear the voice of God. Under the tutelage of the late Rev. Adam Daniels of Houston, Texas, the young preacher matured in his leadership skills and was ordained in ministry in 1974. While serving as Senior Pastor at his former church, Bethel Baptist Church of Freeport Texas, Rev. Milton M. White became a part of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. In 1996 he was elevated to the office of Bishop. Throughout this time of God moving in his life he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Education. He also married his wife of 32 years, Pat White, and became father to their three children Shuwana White Leonard, Shamira Williams and Milton M. White, Jr., and is affectionately known as “PaPa” to seven grandchildren.Serving as Bishop of the Western Pacific Region; which consists of Northern & Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, Alaska, Utah, Oregon, and Washington under the leadership of Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.; Bishop Milton M. White Sr. is the divinely appointed visionary of the Victory Bible Full Gospel Baptist Church located in Pasadena California, one of the largest black community churches in the San Gabriel Valley area. There he has served faithfully and unselfishly for 6 years, providing him opportunity to build leaders and laypeople, equipping every believer with the Word of God. He has a passion to help people at all levels of discipleship to fully understand and fulfill their purpose in God, experience prosperous living, and to walk in victory.As a “Father” to many sons and daughters in ministry, and now Shepherd of Victory Bible Full Gospel Baptist Church, the evidence and impact of the leadership of Bishop Milton M. White, Sr. is unmistakable. He provides opportunities for growth encouraging individuals to seize every occasion to become fruit bearers by taking advantage of community-based Christian Educational programs, such as “Next Level Studies” for the mature believer; and Performing Arts Spring Session; and Character Enrichment & Educational Development for the young believer. Through Family Enrichment Night, a weekly bible fellowship that provides powerful yet practical life application tools for victorious living for all ages, he deposits his passion for strong healthy families into the heart of the people in the community.Victory Bible Full Gospel Baptist Church, 1497 N.
