International Power to get higher rating

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ INTERNATIONAL POWER (IP) will get a healthier credit rating through its long-awaited merger with GDF Suez, shaving £40m from its annual financing costs, the firm said yesterday.IP is confident of improving its credit rating to “investment grade”, at least BBB–, meaning it will be able to borrow at cheaper rates.The lowered funding charges are part of £165m of synergies IP is hoping to squeeze from its reverse takeover by French government-backed GDF. GDF, which is aiming for €70m (£58m) of synergies, will roll its non-European power generation units into the British company, along with UK and Turkish assets.Subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, GDF will own just over two thirds of the post-transaction group while IP investors will hold the remainder. IP chief executive Philip Cox will remain in position, as will chief financial officer Mark Williamson. GDF international vice president Dirk Beeuwsaert will come in as chairman, with incumbent Sir Neville Simms becoming his deputy.Cox was keen to stress the growth prospects available by tapping GDF’s more robust balance sheet. “Very important in this capital-intensive industry is the enhanced financial position of the group,” he said.One analyst remarked: “It does make it easier for them. They were scratching their heads a bit as to how to take it forward before this.”The transaction also means investment bankers and lawyers acting for the two firms will enjoy a rare August windfall. Sources who worked on the deal said the advisers would rake in up to £50m in fees from the work.Shares in IP dropped two per cent to 372.6p as investors registered disappointment at the size of their 30 per cent stake in the merged company.The news came as IP said its first-half pre-tax profit fell by half to £385m. Stripping out exceptional items it came to £333m.YOEL ZAOUIGOLDMAN SACHSINTERNATIONAL POWER and GDF Suez hired a raft of investment bankers to push the merger through.GDF’s efforts were coordinated by a Goldman?Sachs team led by Yoël Zaoui, Nick Harper, Robin Rousseau and Charles-Eduard van Rossum. Zaoui is a graduate of Stanford Business School in the US and has worked on Crédit?Agricole’s acquisition of Banque Indosuez, Elf Aquitaine’s defence against a $59bn (£37bn) hostile offer from Total Fina and Mittal Steel’s merger with Arcelor.Also working for GDF were Grégoire Chertok of NM Rothschild, BNP Paribas’ Thierry Varene, Ondra Partners’ Michael Tory and Blackstone’s famous rainmaker John “Studs” Studzinski.Japanese bank Nomura led the charge for International?Power, with William Vereker, Adrian Mee and Jason Hutchings leading the team.In addition, International Power called on the services of JPMorgan’s Ed Byers, Mark Breuer and Dwayne Lysaght, and Simon Smith and Alastair Cochran of Morgan Stanley. whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Poison pill hits BHP’S $39bn bid

first_imgTuesday 17 August 2010 8:30 pm Poison pill hits BHP’S $39bn bid whatsapp whatsapp CANADIAN fertiliser firm PotashCorp yesterday snubbed a mammoth $39bn (£25bn) indicative offer from mining giant BHP Billiton, moving swiftly to shield itself by invoking a “poison pill” defence outlawed in the UK.PotashCorp, which described the $130-a-share cash offer from BHP as “grossly inadequate”, launched a shareholder rights plan defence, giving it the ability to issue new shares to existing shareholders for a pittance if its suitor builds up a stake of over 20 per cent in the open market.The move will force BHP to go hostile without being able to first snap up a sizeable stake, if it is committed to launching a formal bid at the current price.BHP’s senior management in the UK and Australia were last night locked in discussions over how to proceed with its offer. However, they are unlikely to be able to bring PotashCorp’s directors on board without stumping up a considerable amount of extra cash, after sources close to the Canadian firm yesterday indicated that the rejected offer was “not even in the right ball park”.In its rebuttal, PotashCorp, headed by chief executive officer Bill Doyle, said the $130-a-share offer “fails to reflect both the value of our premier position in a strategically vital industry and our unparalleled future growth prospects”.The company’s so-called shareholder rights plan as a defence, though not allowed in the UK, is common in Canada among firms protecting themselves against hostile suitors.The last high-profile instance of such a poison pill defence being implemented was last month, when independent Hollywood studio Lions Gate Entertainment imposed a 38 per cent trigger on the shareholding of billionaire bidder Carl Icahn.BHP Billiton’s chairman Jac Nasser wrote to his PotashCorp counterpart Dallas Howe on Friday to outline the indicative proposal, which he argued reflected a 20 per cent premium to the target’s closing price on the New York Stock Exchange last Wednesday. But PotashCorp’s shares soared to well above the $140 level yesterday, suggesting investors believe that an improved offer could be imminent.BHP demonstrated its commitment to building up a strong position in the potash industry earlier this year with the C$341m (£212.1m) acquisition of Athabasca Potash, a Toronto Stock Exchange-listed company with assets in the Saskatchewan province of Canada, where PotashCorp is also based.

The firm hoped to harvest bauxite from the area to save money on transport. Environment minister Jairam Ramesh said the decision did not amount to blacklisting Vedanta, signalling that the firm could seek to mine elsewhere.“There has been serious violations of environment protection acts,” Ramesh said while rejecting Vedanta’s mining plans that could destroy heavily forested hills sacred to local tribal groups.London-listed shares in Vedanta closed down 7.6 per cent at £18.82 yesterday. “Vedanta remains committed to working with the local communities to ensure sustainable development in this region,” the company said in a statement.It added that the government of Orissa is actively considering other sources of bauxite for the firm’s alumini refinery. whatsapp Share Tuesday 24 August 2010 7:26 pm whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Consequently, the three-month growth rate dropped to just 19.8 per cent from 30.9 per cent. Paul Ashworth, senior US economist at Capital Economics, said: “July’s durable goods report adds to the recent evidence from numerous activity surveys that the manufacturing recovery has lost nearly all of the considerable momentum it had.”He added: “The rebound in manufacturing was one of the bright spots in an otherwise disappointing recovery. Take it away, throw in a renewed collapse in housing, and you don’t have much left.” whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Chief executive Evan Williams announced that the four-year-old company, which on average is now signing up 370,000 new users daily, will introduce a completely new system which is more responsive and user friendly.The site will feature a new two-pane layout and users will be able to embed YouTube videos and various other content on the screen. The changes promise a “richer and faster experience”, Williams said at a press conference to announce the new site. His hopes are that the redesign will also help to better monetise the service as a new advertising system is introduced.Forrester analyst Augie Ray said the redesign should help improve engagement with users.“Twitter’s new web functionality is a significant evolution that promises to attract more visits to Twitter.com, improve Twitterers’ interactions with content and each other, and ease adoption for Twitter newbies,” Ray said in a blog post.The new Twitter.com will be launched for a small percentage of users next Tuesday, and will later be rolled out incrementally across the globe over the coming weeks.The announcement comes after Google bosses this week said that their company plans to develop a new social networking platform. The move is being regarded as a serious attempt to challenge the dominance of rival Facebook in social media. With more than 90m tweets sent per day on average, Twitter is increasingly challenging established web giants such as Yahoo and Google for consumers’ online time. last_img read more

Stobart in shock profit warning

first_img whatsapp Wednesday 20 October 2010 7:31 pm KCS-content Share FREIGHT company Stobart Group has cut its full-year profit forecast and warned that government spending cuts and tax rises could hit volumes in 2011.“We have slightly reduced our full-year profit expectations as a result of reduced spend by Network Rail and increased overall finance costs. We are also cautious that 2011 may see volumes affected by the increase in VAT rate and the government spending review,” said chief executive Andrew Tinkler.The company said customers were demanding shorter lead times, as hard-pressed retailers ordered fewer items more often.Tinkler said this was giving the company less time to plan deliveries, leading to a lower vehicle utilisation rate.But Stobart said in the longer term it would benefit from the flexibility of its business model, which uses its own fleet and drivers, reducing the need to rely on subcontractors, and a pay-as-you-go system.Ben Whawell, chief financial officer, said the company had not seen much direct effect on volumes from reduced government spending so far, but that the size of the cuts expected from the government spending review might well have some impact.Stobart reported a 38.7 per cent jump in pre-tax profit in its first half to August 31 to £15.4m, on revenue from continuing operations up 11.7 per cent at £243.7m, with contract wins from Tesco and A.G. Barr adding volume and margin.Shares in the company tumbled 13 per cent on the release of the statement.Killick says the statement led to downgrades in forecasts by an average of eight per cent. whatsapp Tags: NULL Read This NextThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotRicky 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?
