Takeover Panel prepares Code review response

first_img Show Comments ▼ Share A PRIVATE put-up-or-shut-up deadline is the most likely significant proposal to come out of the consultation on proposed changes to the Takeover Code, according to M&A experts.The Takeover Panel’s response to the consultation – sparked by controversy over Kraft’s takeover of Cadbury earlier this year – is due in the next couple of weeks, while a government review into the code is also underway. They aim to examine whether it is too easy for foreign companies to snap up British firms under the UK’s regime, currently the most open in the world.However, the consensus at a MergerMarket briefing event yesterday – where speakers included ex-Cadbury chairman Roger Carr, Slaughter & May partner Stephen Cooke, Herbert Smith partner David Paterson and Morgan Stanley managing director Suniti Chauhan – concluded some suggestions put forward would be either too difficult to implement or verging on protectionism.They include increasing the acceptance threshold, disenfranchising shares held by short-term investors, and allowing state intervention.More likely would be a private put-up-or-shut-up deadline before the bid is made public, or a shortening of the takeover period.

The UK bank levy risks tarring banks as toxic

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp KCS-content The UK bank levy risks tarring banks as toxic Monday 4 October 2010 9:02 pm THE Treasury’s consultation on the introduction of a UK bank levy closes today. Draft legislation will be published in the autumn for further comment and the final draft will be published towards the end of the year. The levy will be introduced from 1 January 2011. As that hurried timetable suggests, the consultation is concerned only with working out the finest of details, rather than providing an opportunity to challenge the advisability of the levy itself.The Treasury consultation document is clear on what the bank levy is not intended to be: it is not a fund for future bailouts. Instead, the UK’s bank levy has two stated purposes: firstly, “to encourage banks to move away from riskier funding”; and secondly, to tax large banks for being a lasting danger to the economy. The first is presented with little argument, while the second is alarming.The consultation response by the Institute of Directors (IoD) addresses the first rationale in detail. As the IoD points out, in principle pricing risky behaviour to account for its costs is preferable to a ban. But we cannot assume the levy will achieve this. An effective levy in this sense might require an internationally uncompetitive and therefore impractical rate. The IoD concludes: “full computations of appropriate levels, linked to the costs that need to be priced in, should be published for public scrutiny”. Without data, this claim lacks substance.We are left with only one real justification for the levy. In the consultation document’s own words: “It is fair and it is right that banks should make an appropriate contribution, which reflects the many risks they generate.” The banking industry understands that it has to reform itself and win back the public’s trust: many City representatives met yesterday at Mansion House to discuss this very problem. Can it really be helpful as part of that process to have the government expressly target banks as a hazardous, costly presence in the UK?Note too the slippery nature of that word “appropriate”. Many were pleased that George Osborne did not set the UK levy far higher. But there is no guarantee that it will stay where it is. Ed Miliband has implied he would like to see it higher still. The Liberal Democrats wanted it higher as well. Osborne will not always be chancellor.This levy is an uncompetitive policy that has more to do with feeding public resentment than with preventing another crisis. In leaving the banks at the mercy of future political calculations, it has the potential to help create one instead. 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 Tags: NULL last_img read more

ROUX BUSY EXPANDING WHITEHALL WAISTLINES

first_img Share IT’S been a busy few months for master chef Michel Roux Jr, splitting his time between fostering his burgeoning TV career and appointing a new chef for his latest venture, Roux at Parliament Square.In addition to his ongoing judge’s spot on Masterchef, Roux has also been busy filming a series set to hit our screens next year – “Michel Roux’s Service”, a BBC production where a bunch of youngsters will fight it out to be trained in the almost-forgotten skills of restaurant front of house. (Roux, of course, is used to nothing but the best, having worked with the “godfather” of London maitre d’s, Silvano Giraldin, for years and years at Le Gavroche.)Meanwhile, over at Parliament Square, The Capitalist hears he’s just installed Toby Stuart as his new chef, fresh out of his position as senior sous-chef at the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows.Eagle-eyed spies tell me that Stuart – who originally sharpened his kitchen knives at some of the finest eateries in the world, including The Square, L’Escargot and Auberge du Lac – has been given something of a baptism of fire with the distinguished patrons frequenting the joint. Just a stone’s throw from the House of Commons, he’s already cooked for the likes of defence secretary Liam Fox, shadow chancellor Alan Johnson and chancellor George Osborne – though I’m told PM David Cameron has yet to make an appearance…PUBLICITY STUNTTodd Combs, the hedge fund manager elevated by billionaire investor Warren Buffett to oversee a significant part of his firm Berkshire Hathaway’s investment portfolio, might need to get himself a spot of media training if he’s going to become prime candidate to succeed the Sage of Omaha himself.Buffett, speaking to Fortune magazine about the appointment, described Combs as an “all-American type” who shuns publicity. That’s hardly a phrase you could use to describe Buffett himself, who has previously gone as far as to dress up in a wig and bandanna and perform as rock star Axl Rose in a television commercial to promote one of Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio companies, Geico – all in the name of publicity.top marks for effortWhere graduates once sweated over online applications in the elusive search for that first job, the students of today have become ever more enterprising.In the depths of the crisis, we had jobseekers walking around cities with billboards around their necks and one memorable candidate standing on the Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square advertising his skills.That trend continues – one young chap, Matthew Riley, tells The Capitalist he plans to stand outside Bank station this morning handing out 1,000 copies of his CV to commuters, in the hope of landing an internship.Apparently, the second-year student is interested in opportunities in investor relations or client management – and not so long ago tried a similar stunt at Canary Wharf, when the distribution of less than half that number of CVs landed him an interview at Shell.PARADISE FOUNDTempting stuff, this, at a time when uncertainty is rife and many jobs in the financial services sector are looking less than 100 per cent secure.Escape The City – the website set up by two former management consultants during the economic crisis, in order to help workers pursue their dream careers – has teamed up with holiday group Paradise Hunter to launch a competition to land the job of a lifetime.Said job involves being paid $60,000 (£37,900) to travel around the world for 52 weeks, presenting a TV series for Paradise Hunter – taking in the sights and culture of no fewer than 12 countries, including Belize, Costa Rica, the British Virgin Islands, New Zealand, Thailand and India, along the way.What’s more, the successful “job” applicant will be given a property worth up to $150,000 at the end of the year in their favourite “paradise” country. Are they for real?LEADING LIGHTWell-deserved kudos yesterday for Morgan Stanley’s international treasurer David Buckley, who was honoured with the Walker Award for Commitment to Diversity in Financial Services – an award established in memory of Tory peer and former chairman of Kleinwort Benson Lord Walker, a committed campaigner for greater diversity for the City, who died earlier this year.The award was set up by an organisation called The City Fellowships in Financial Services, founded to help American minority financiers living in London, which applauded Buckley’s “career-long dedication and outstanding commitment to the empowerment of women and ethnic minorities in the City”.

Betfair risks are revealed in prospectus

first_img Betfair risks are revealed in prospectus Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Wednesday 27 October 2010 8:40 pm whatsapp BETFAIR yesterday released the prospectus that helped it float for almost £1.4bn earlier this month.The document includes 15 pages of risk factors that could derail the business, including attempts by EU member states to prevent online betting operators and clarification of online gaming regulation which could hit Betfair’s position as an exchange, rather than a bookmaker.It also raised concerns about the image of the industry as a whole, in light of sporting corruption allegations, such as that surrounding the Pakistan cricket team.Another concern was the illegal use of the site for money laundering by either its employees or customers or a scandal involving underage gambling, which could undermine the firm’s reputation.Its prospectus also admitted chief executive David Yu had been “absent from work for a brief period in March 2010 with a cardiological complaint,” although it insisted he is still fit for duty.Betfair priced its initial public offering at 1,300p per share – valuing the company at £1.4bn. The world’s largest betting website said it had sold 16.2m shares in the offering, excluding an overallotment option, or 15.2 per cent of the company. It had offered the shares at 1,100-1,400p.It also launched a majority-owned trading service, LMAX, which opened for business this week. It offers contracts for difference on US and European share indices, commodities and UK gilts. The platform adopts its parent’s model as a peer-to-peer exchange rather than a traditional broker.

Osborne axes plan to reveal bank bonuses

first_img Tags: NULL Monday 22 November 2010 8:44 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Osborne axes plan to reveal bank bonuses GEORGE Osborne has performed a remarkable U-turn over plans to force banks to reveal details of pay and bonuses, in a major coup for the City.The chancellor has repeatedly said he would press ahead with proposals to make banks publish the pay and bonuses of employees who earn more than £1m in bands, while keeping their names anonymous. But yesterday Osborne said it would be wrong to impose the new measures without some kind of international agreement, after senior banking figures argued it would make the City less competitive. “There are European rules that are being developed in this area and it might be better for Britain to promote this internationally rather than just unilaterally,” Osborne said.The volte-face followed a similar change of heart from Sir David Walker, the architect of the rules. He said the rules were designed in the hope that other countries would follow suit.Sir David also fears that greater transparency could lead to wage inflation, with lower-paid bankers demanding more once they realise they are earning less than their colleagues.Osborne’s U-turn is likely to provoke a furious response from Liberal Democrat business secretary Vince Cable, a long time campaigner for greater transparency in City pay. Yesterday he said: “Transparency is key to creating confidence in any commitment from our banks to behave more responsibly on pay and bonuses. Outrageous and irresponsible pay structures were a driver in our financial crisis.”In May, Cable told City A.M. there was a case for introducing similar reforms for all British corporations. “There is an argument for applying them across the board,” he said. Meanwhile, former City minister Lord Myners – who was instrumental in preventing the names of bankers being published – yesterday hit out at Osborne’s about turn. He said the climb-down demonstrated “the power of the banking lobby” and accused the chancellor of departing from the coalition agreement he signed up to on entering government. 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 PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemcenter_img Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Share whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more

TNT Express could be worth a little less than €10bn to a rival, while mail was worth between €3bn and €4bn, depending whether it remained public or was bought by a private equity firm, ING analyst Axel Funhoff said.

Report: For-profit schools improve chances for poor

first_img KCS-content EDUCATION reforms by the coalition government must allow profit making schools, an influential thinktank said today.Reforms in Sweden – which the UK’s plans are loosely based upon – only worked due to the contribution of for-profit schools, according to the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA).“This is especially the case in providing access to good schools for those from low socioeconomic backgrounds,” said the IEA’s Mark Littlewood.A statistical analysis of the Swedish system found that the profit incentive boosted the number of new schools, driving up standards.In Sweden 13 per cent of schools make a profit. Yet the UK government has received only 62 applications for independent new “free schools.”“It is hardly surprising that we have seen such a low uptake when the profit motive has been excluded,” said Littlewood. whatsapp Report: For-profit schools improve chances for poor Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img Tuesday 14 December 2010 9:03 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition whatsapp More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more
