Potash plans break up to avoid BHP bid

first_img Potash plans break up to avoid BHP bid whatsapp whatsapp POTASHCORP, the Canadian chemicals giant, is believed to be working on a potential break up of the company as one way of fending off a $38.6bn (£24.1bn) hostile bid from the mining company BHP Billiton.The plan is among several strategies being worked on at Potash – whose advisers include RBC Capital Markets, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America Merrill Lynch – ahead of the deadline for BHP’s $130-a-share bid of 18 November.Another strategy is for a counterbid to emerge from the Ontario Teachers Pension Fund (OTPP), which is believed to have already approached Singapore’s state investment agency Temasek, as part of a search for partners to bid for all or part of PotashCorp.The OTPP is reported to have opened preliminary talks with Temasek, although discussions are at a very early stage.Sinochem, the Chinese state-owned chemicals and fertilisers company, is believed to have approached Temasek last week. But Sinochem appears to be struggling to mount an effective counterbid. Its chances have also narrowed since a Canadian government-sponsored report advised of the dangers of Potashcorp falling into the hands of a state-owned Chinese company.Talks are also thought to have included mining companies and fellow members of the Canpotex cartel – which control the price of potash outside North America. Such attempts are thought to have received strong support from the Canadian GovernmentBut almost two months after BHP first revealed its $130-a-share all-cash bid, a genuine counterbid for the company has yet to emerge.PotashCorp has rejected the BHP offer as “wholly inadequate. BHP has also held a series of talks with Potash’s closest competitors about major asset disposals. These include fellow Canadian Agrium, Norwegian company Yara, Mosaic – a subsidiary of US food giant Cargill – and little-known Russian players Silvinit and Uralkali, to sell the non-Potash parts of its business. According to sources, this could raise between $40 to $50 per share. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe 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 Show Comments ▼center_img KCS-content Share Sunday 10 October 2010 11:50 pm Read This Next’Kevin Can F**k Himself’: Here’s Why Only Allison and Patty Are SeenThe Wrap20 Stars Who’ve Posted Nude Selfies, From Lizzo to John Legend (Photos)The Wrap’Batwoman’: Wallis Day on Circe’s ‘Deranged’ Warpath and the Key to SavingThe Wrap’Godzilla vs Kong’ Reaches $100 Million in US After Grossing $250,000 inThe WrapJoin a Conversation on ‘Cancel Culture in Comedy’ with Maz Jobrani, SkyeThe WrapAnya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes Join Searchlight’s Dark Comedy ‘The Menu’The WrapAfter ‘Black Widow,’ Kevin Feige Leaves Open the Possibility of OtherThe Wrap’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe Wrap Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Entain announces grassroots football charitable foundation following GVC rebrand

first_img Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Pitching In”, Entain’s recently launched grassroots sports investment programme, is the founding partner of the TCF, and has donated £150,000 to establish the TCF fund, which will be distributed across the 2020/21 season. Topics: Social responsibility CSR The operator reported a 12% year-on-year rise in net gaming revenue for the third quarter of 2020, as strong growth from its offline business offset a weaker performance from its retail operations. In the first year, the maximum grant award will be capped at £5,000, however this could increase in the future should the fund increase, Entain said. Entain announces grassroots football charitable foundation following GVC rebrand Tags: GVC Holdings Entain Trident Community Foundation Entain’s chief executive, Shay Segev, said: “This unique and exciting partnership will provide grassroots support where it is needed most for the benefit of community-based football clubs, and the thousands of people that play for them, work for them, volunteer for them, and support them. This is exactly in line with the approach we recently set out when launching our Sustainability Charter.” Entain changed its name from GVC today after 99.96% of votes cast at its extraordinary general meeting approved the change. The operator said the name change – proposed last month – reflects its goals of sustainability. It comes at a time when football clubs and sport organisations across the UK are facing an unprecedented impact on their finances due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Entain said. The foundation will be chaired by David Emery, editor of the Non-League Paper, and its board includes the chairmen of the Isthmian and Northern Premier leagues, and the Southern League’s vice-chairman, as well as two representatives of Entain Group as the founding partners. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The TCF’s aim is to support, develop and improve the delivery of community programmes at the football clubs, and help fund small and medium-sized projects. It is intended to be a sustainable community programme that will help clubs develop young talent, promote non-league football to a wider audience and attract volunteers to Trident League clubs. “Community football is facing the most challenging time imaginable because of COVID-19 pandemic,” he said, “so the establishment of this Foundation is all the more welcome for that.” Ladbrokes Coral owner, Entain, which today rebranded from its old name GVC Holdings, has launched a charitable foundation to support the development of non-league football clubs. In line with Entain’s decision in 2019 to unilaterally pull out of football sponsorship in the UK, the Pitching In partnership will not promote any of the group’s betting or gaming brands and no branding will be used at any of the leagues’ grounds. Entain is partner of the three Trident Leagues, the Isthmian, Northern Premier and Southern Leagues, which together with the operator today jointly announced the launch of the Trident Community Foundation (TCF) to help fund community-based projects through a grant application process for the 228 clubs in the leagues. Stuart Pearce, football manager and former professional player, who is also the official Pitching In Ambassador, said he knows first-hand the difference the grants will make to the community football clubs playing at the non-league level. Pitching In was announced on 3 September as the partner of all three Trident Leagues, and today’s launch of the TCF is the latest phase of the Pitching In grassroots sport investment programme. Social responsibility In a trading update for the three months ended 30 September, it said online gaming revenue was up 26% from the prior year, or 28% on a constant currency business. Regions: UK & Ireland A joint statement from the three Trident Leagues said the clubs are the heart of their local communities, and that the TCF fund will provide them with the means to strengthen community links. 10th December 2020 | By Conor Mulheirlast_img read more

I’d invest in this resilient share right now

first_imgI’d invest in this resilient share right now Kevin Godbold | Monday, 27th April, 2020 | More on: LOK Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m always hunting for defensive, cash-generating and resilient stocks if they’ve growth potential. That’s why I’m keen on the FTSE 100’s AstraZeneca. But the Lock’n Store (LSE: LOK) share price looks perky today on the release of the half-year results report, and I like that company too.As with many successful and growing publicly-listed companies, this one has a good record of advancement in the financial figures. And that includes an impressive escalation of the shareholder dividend.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…A sought-after shareBut the stock’s charms haven’t gone unnoticed. The valuation is high, with the forward-looking earnings multiple running near 40 for the trading year to July 2021. However, even after a mighty bounce-back from its recent coronavirus lows, at 570p, the share still needs to advance by around 27% to hit its February high near 725p. I think there’s every chance it will.A rich valuation tends to automatically put some investors off a stock, and many will move on to the next opportunity. I did that myself for years but discovered such an approach kept me out of most of the best outperformers on the stock market.Perhaps the key to successfully investing in higher-rated companies is to focus on growth. You should look for a record of solid improvement in the financial numbers. And that’s what I see in Lock’n Store. Of course, the big risk of flirting with higher valuations is any set-back operationally could cause a valuation down-rating. This leads to a plunging share price.As well as risks, there are opportunities. For example, if you’d have put money into Lok’n Store 10 years ago and left it there until today, you’d be sitting on a capital gain of almost 600%. But some of that gain could have occurred because of a re-rating of the valuation upwards as the growth story became recognised by the market. On top of those gains, you’d have enjoyed a rising income return from the shareholder dividend.Decent trading and growth on trackToday, the company reported decent progress in most of the ‘right’ figures. And the directors even pushed up the interim dividend by 9%. That decision tells us much. Indeed, all the stores remain open “while maintaining social distancing measures.” On top of that, Lok’n Store has been paying all its staff as normal through the crisis with “minimal use of [the] government furlough scheme.”Trading so far in the firm’s current trading year to July has been “resilient.” And I think the company’s performance through this pandemic underscores the strength of the business model. Now, I’m beginning to understand why the stock is prized by investors.Meanwhile, the expansion pipeline looks healthy with 16 sites that chief executive Andrew Jacobs reckons will “significantly increase operating space over the coming years.”  It seems that neither the growth story nor current trading has stalled.

Budget discussions continue at Executive Council

TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Executive Council January 2012, Course Director Jerusalem, Israel January 29, 2012 at 11:24 am Proverbs 29:18 By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jan 28, 2012 The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group The Rev. Ann Fontaine says: [Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council continued Jan. 28 to grapple with the missional, organizational and financial realities of developing a budget for the 2013-2015 triennium.The members also grappled with a timeline that calls for council to develop a draft triennial budget to give to the church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) by the close of its Jan. 27-29 meeting here at the Conference Center at the Maritime Institute. This timeline was contrasted with calls by some council members to spend more time envisioning the church’s mission goals, and revising the budget proposals it received the day before.One budget scenario calls for asking dioceses to contribute 19 percent of their income and the other calls for dioceses contributing 15 percent. The larger amount of income is $103.6 million and the 15 percent-asking budget would be reduced by approximately $13.5 million, according to Treasurer Kurt Barnes. The 19 percent scenario could result in staff reductions equivalent to eight full-time staff positions at most and the 15 percent scenario would amount to 36 full-time equivalent staff positions at most, according to the spreadsheets presented.“The way we are currently approaching the budgeting process appears to be de facto restructuring by funding or de-funding parts of the organization. The tail is wagging the dog,” Lelanda Lee, a member of council’s Advocacy and Networking for Mission committee, told her colleagues.Lee made her comments while members were reporting to the entire council during the morning of Jan. 28 about budget discussions held in committees the previous day after the members received the budget scenarios from its Executive Committee.“This was not a strategic exercise but this was a mathematical exercise,” council member Vycke McEwen said later in the morning while council further discussed the budgeting process.Council member Lee Allison Crawford reported that her colleagues at her table felt the church was “just beginning to understand the system we inherited from General Convention 2009 with the last round of cuts.” The reorganized Church Center “has had success” and to change the system again would be wrong, she said.“The structure has to be an authentic reflection of our values and so we really should change ministries with deliberation and care and reflection and not just by sweeping cuts in a spreadsheet,” she said.“Neither iteration – 19 percent asking or 15 percent asking – provides a new vision,” Katie Sherrod said in reporting the reaction of the Governance and Administration for Mission committee. “We need a vision for the future.”While council heard much discussion the previous day about declining mainline denominational membership and financial struggles caused both by those membership declines and the current economy, council member Brian Cole said that his table colleagues questioned the assumed implications of that information.He said they wanted to challenge the rest of the council to consider “if we believe decline is inevitable and ongoing forever, or do we really believe we have good news to share.”Cole also echoed a theme of some council members who questioned what they said was an assumption that reducing the amount of money the denomination asks of its dioceses would actually result in increased spending on mission activities at that and the congregational level.“We really have to decide what is a fair contribution for the work we want to do at the churchwide level and realize we really can’t control what other people do with the money they keep either at the diocese or a parish,” he said.The Executive Committee will meet later in the day Jan. 28 “to respond to recommendations and observations we’ve heard,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori told council at the end of that discussion. The committee will discuss the result of that meeting with the whole of council on Jan. 29, she added.“We’re trying to respond to what we are aware is some anxiety around this,” she said, adding that council had wanted to try a new process for crafting the 2013-2015 budget process and that the process began several months later than the process normally does.“That new initiative I think was creative and hopeful, and it has presented us with a reality that is very different than we’ve experienced in the past,” she said. “It’s more chaotic, but I would also remind you that the Genesis story says there’s no creation in the absence of chaos.”Sherrod acknowledged that the new process came out of council’s “desire to not have happen to us what happened in the last triennium with the budget, and there was a lot of attention paid to getting the numbers right.” However, she suggested that “a piece of the work that got neglected perhaps because of the press of time … was relating those numbers to our vision, as we’ve all talked about.”During the 76th meeting of General Convention in the summer of 2009, Program, Budget and Finance drastically changed the 2010-2012 draft budget that council had given it. Council’s draft proposal was based on an income projection of $161,820,613. The version PB&F presented to convention was based on $141,271,984 income. Convention agreed to the latter version, resulting in a triennial budget that was $23 million leaner than in the previous triennium.That budget also reduced the amount of money the church’s 110 dioceses were asked to contribute to the cost of funding the denomination’s work. The amount went from 21 percent of diocesan income in 2010 to 20 percent in 2011 and 19 percent in 2012. In addition, a $100,000 income exemption was raised to $120,000, thus leaving more money with the dioceses.Program, Budget and Finance meets at the Maritime Institute Jan. 30-Feb. 2 to begin its work on the 2013-2015 draft budget. It will eventually develop the triennial budget to propose to General Convention on July 10. The 2013-2015 budget will not be final until General Convention approves it, a vote now scheduled for July 12. The budget will take effect Jan. 1, 2013.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by provincial synods for six-year terms, plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies.— The Rev.

Is Europe a powder keg?

first_imgIn the European Union of 28 countries (EU28), 118 million people (23.5 percent of the population) were at risk of poverty in 2015. This risk affects both workers with jobs (12.3 percent in 2017) and the unemployed (32.7 percent). The increasing precariousness of labor relations means that the risk of poverty for workers between 18 and 24 is 12.5 percent; while for workers between 55 and 64, it is 8.8 percent. The risk of poverty for full-time workers is 8 percent, for part-time workers 15.8 percent. In the EU, those in the highest quintile, or fifth of the population, are paid 4.1 times what those in the lowest quintile are paid. In the EU28 in 2017, 8.1 percent of families were unable to adequately heat their homes; 30.9 percent could not afford one week of holidays per year; 8.4 percent could not afford a quality meal even every other day; 9.3 percent had arrears on housing expenses since 2003; 7.8 percent of households had great difficulty sustaining themselves; 35.6 percent had no possibility of enjoying any leisure activity.Also, 26.5 percent of EU28 households had to make heavy payments for rentals and mortgages; 5.8 percent had no means to travel by public transport; 25.5 percent were unable to replace used clothes with new ones; 13.1 percent of households had leaky roofs, with wet walls, floors and foundations and rotten wood in windows and floors.It is really unnecessary to go to Eurostat [the source of all the above numbers] to see the extent of the existing economic and social divide. Exploitation, poverty and inequality exploded after the fall of the Soviet Union. Capitalism was judged to be the be-all and the end-all. But the alternative will arise precisely from the intolerable nature of capitalism itself. And from the unstoppable struggle of the workers and the peoples.This opinion article was published Dec. 13 in Avante, the newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party. It succinctly describes the growing inequality and poverty in Europe — both East and West — since the end of the Soviet Union. It was translated by Workers World Managing Editor John Catalinotto with permission of the author.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
