The board opened its investigation after the FSA raised some issues.Lehman collapsed in September 2008, bringing the global financial system to its knees and leading to a round of sweeping regulatory reforms.E&Y, one of the “Big Four” global auditors, confirmed it has been approached by the AADB in relation to reporting on client assets. “We will cooperate fully with the investigation,” the accountancy firm said .

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

Steve Jobs’ firm now faces stiff competition in the tablet market, with rivals RIM and Samsung both having released credible alternatives in recent months. Jobs attempted to pour cold water on the iPad’s rivals, claiming their smaller size meant they fell short of both a smartphone’s convenience and an iPad’s functionality. But Apple’s stock still tumbled more than six per cent in after hours trading on news of the iPad’s disappointing sales.However, sales of its new iPhone 4 helped push the firm’s quarterly revenue up 67 per cent to $20.3bn (£13bn), ahead of Wall Street’s target of $18.9bn. And it reported profits of $4.31bn, up from $2.53bn a year ago. Both figures are a record for the fourth quarter.The firm shifted 14.1m iPhones in the period, and the Cupertino-based firm is now activating 275,000 iPhones every day. This compares to 200,000 phones a day being activated using Google’s rival Android software, according to the search giant’s latest figures. The battle is key to both firms’ plans to control the way we view the mobile internet, one of the fastest growing and most lucrative technology markets.Apple sold 9m iPods, boosted by a completely redesigned range of products, as well as 3.9m of its high-margin Mac laptop and desktop computers.It has now reported record revenues and profits for every quarter since 2007, before the onset of the recession – a remarkable feat for a firm specialising in high-end products. The latest revenue figures are an astonishing five times higher than the equivalent figure in 2005, with earnings rising 10 times in the same period.Apple now expects its first quarter revenue – traditionally its strongest – to hit $23bn as customers rush to buy its products in time for Christmas.Meanwhile, IBM reported a higher-than-expected profit and raised its outlook for the year. Its quarterly profit rose to $3.6bn on revenue of $24.3bn. It was buoyed by strong sales in its core hardware business but was hit by sluggish trading in technology services.

first_img FINANCIAL TIMESGERMANY BACKS WIDER RESCUE FUND ROLE Germany is backing proposals to give new powers and lending capacity to the €440bn Eurozone rescue fund, even if that means increasing its financial guarantees, according to people familiar with the issue in Berlin and Brussels. Such a move would be part of a package of measures, including greater co-ordination of economic policymaking between the 17 eurozone members.OBERTHUR MAKES BUY-OUT APPROACHThe prospect of Oberthur mounting a firm bid for rival De La Rue, the crisis-hit British banknote printer, has increased after it emerged that the French secure technology company has approached private equity groups to inject fresh capital. Oberthur has proposed issuing a convertible bond of between £300m and £400m. LIB DEMS PRESS FOR TOUGH BANK DEALNick Clegg and Vince Cable are demanding that London becomes the world’s most transparent financial centre, as the Lib Dems increase the pressure to attach tough conditions on pay disclosure to any peace deal with the banks. With defeat looming for the Liberal Democrats in Thursday’s Oldham by-election, Mr Clegg’s party is desperate.BUY-OUT GROUPS RETURN TO THE FRAYPrivate equity firms have rediscovered their Keynesian “animal spirits” in Europe, returning in force to dealmaking even though the credit crisis is forcing them to use an unusually low level of debt to finance their deals.

And our relationships with customers are enduring – potentially lasting 50 or 60 years through the savings and retirement phases of their lives. As a leading insurer, with 53m customers, we’re at Davos to join in some of the biggest topics up for discussion: rebuilding trust in financial services and tackling the savings gap.More than any other issue, the question of savings links the big macroeconomic and political debates of our time with the specific and everyday concerns of every individual. It links high politics with culture and psychology; local markets with global economic imbalances. It affects our livelihoods, our political debate and the development of society worldwide.We need a change in attitude towards saving, and for it to be reconnected to the idea of prosperity, both for the individual saver and for those that use their capital to create wealth.With that in mind, Aviva recently convened the Future Prosperity Panel – in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit – bringing together experts in behaviour change, economics and policy to look at ways of bringing about a step-change in attitudes towards savings. We’ll be publishing new thinking on the subject later this year.The image of savings has not been helped by the turmoil that has sapped confidence in markets and financial services. Part of our discussions this week in Davos must focus on reintroducing the concept of prudent saving to customers who may have lost faith in that process.The Future Prosperity panel is chaired by the Economist’s capital markets editor, Philip Coggan, and brings together nine leading thinkers. It will use insights from business, behavioural economics and public policy to consider new approaches to improve prosperity around the world. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Xstrata posts $6bn profit as copper soars

first_img MINER Xstrata beat expectations to more than quadruple its pre-tax profit in 2010, the firm said yesterday, on the back of a runaway rise in commodity prices.Xstrata’s pre-tax profit rose to $6.6bn (£4.1bn) up from $1.53bn a year ago, on revenues that rose 34 per cent to $30.5bn. Copper prices, which have jumped 30 per cent in the last 12 months, contributed $2.2bn to Xstrata’s $7.7bn operating profit, which was 75 per cent up on last year. The firm unveiled a higher than expected dividend payment for the year, to 25 cents compared to eight cents a year ago, in a demonstration of the board’s confidence in its plans for the year. Sanford Bernstein analyst Paul Galloway said the dividend “puts down a marker for cash return for other mining companies”.Xstrata repeated its plans to increase overall production by 50 per cent before the end of 2014, and said it was on track to continue 20 new or expanding projects in 2011. Xstrata said last week that thermal production had been hit by the flooding in Queensland, Australia, but chief executive Mick Davis said yesterday the outlook was less bleak. “As we stand at the moment we do not see any significant impact on 2011 results,” he said. Mining rivals Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton are due to report results on the 10 and 16 February respectively. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Tags: NULL KCS-content Sharecenter_img whatsapp Xstrata posts $6bn profit as copper soars Tuesday 8 February 2011 8:57 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoam last_img read more
