In its statement, MMC said the purchase “accelerates MMC’s strategy to be the preeminent global firm in the areas of risk, strategy and people”. Investors in JLT – which is currently listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 index – will receive £19.15 a share in cash, representing a premium of 33.7% based on JLT’s closing share price on 17 September. JLT’s largest shareholder, Jardine Matheson Holdings, has already confirmed support for the deal, as have JLT directors.The transaction has also been aided by a $5.2bn bridging loan provided by Goldman Sachs.MMC estimated that integrating the company into its structure would cost $375m, but generate annual cost savings of $250m over the next three years.The deal is expected to complete in the spring of next year, subject to regulatory approval.Investment consultants and fiduciary managers in the UK are currently the subject of an inquiry by the Competition and Markets Authority. Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC), the parent company to investment consulting giant Mercer, has announced a $5.6bn (€4.8bn) deal to acquire Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group.JLT Group is one of Mercer’s main competitors in the pension scheme advisory market in the UK, and also provides insurance, reinsurance and brokerage services.Dan Glaser, CEO and president of MMC, said in a statement to the stock market this morning that the two firms were a “complementary fit” and would create “a platform to deliver exceptional service to clients and opportunities for our colleagues”.Dominic Burke, JLT Group’s chief executive, will join MMC as vice chairman following completion of the transaction. He said: “MMC is, and always has been, one of our most respected competitors and I believe that, combined, we will create a group that will truly stand as a beacon for our industry.”
The worst possible nightmare came true for the L.V. Rogers Bombers at the B.C. High School AA Boy’s Soccer Championships.A tired and weary Bomber squad, fresh from a weekend Whitecaps Regional camp, fell 3-0 to Okanagan Mission to open the 16-team tournament Monday in Burnaby.LVR managed to bounce back in game two, riding a Ryan Lewis goal to tie Aldergrove 1-1.”Got (to Burnaby) at 2 a.m. (Monday),” said coach Dave Spendlove, who along with son Jamie, form the sideline staff of the Kootenay champs.”It rained non stop and the boys did not play well losing the first game to Kelowna.”The Bomber worlds collided last week when tournament organizers moved up the AA championships two days. The decision meant most of the Bombers would be in Vernon Saturday and Sunday for the Caps training before traveling late Sunday night for the Lower Mainland. Added to the bad luck was the fact LVR was scheduled to open the tournament Monday at 9:30 a.m.”Against Kelowna we started off like deer in the headlights but came into the game and should have gone in half time two goals up,” Spendlove explained.In the second half, however, it was Kelowna going up early after LVR failed to clear the ball properly following an Okanagan Mission corner.OKM scored twice on defensive errors by the Bombers to put the game away. The goals cam after LVR missed on a three-on-one opportunity.Game two started like game one ended with Aldergrove granted a gift goal to open the contest.That was it for Aldergrove as the Bombers took over the game, pressuring the Fraser Valley team the rest of the game.The tying marker came following a six-way passing play with Lewis calmly depositing the ball into the vacant net.LVR returns to the pitch Tuesday to conclude the round robin draw with a game against West Van’s Sentinel.The playoff round follows Tuesday afternoon with the final seeding games set for Wednesday.
Coach Ludlow Bernard said Harbour View must start earning wins against the big clubs in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) in order to challenge, for the title this season.The east Kingston-based club, currently in fifth place on 33 points, just two below fourth-place Humble Lion, slammed sixth place UWI FC 5-0 on Monday night at the Compound. In their previous encounter, they blanked Cavalier 3-0, also at home, but Bernard is not totally satisfied.”I’m satisfied that the goals are coming from more than one player. We need to maintain that sort of performance,” Bernard said at the weekly press conference at Red Stripe yesterday. “The opposition we played against in the last two games were, however, not top teams. We need to maintain our dominance and do it against teams above us,” he told The Gleaner. “I wasn’t surprised that we scored five against UWI, as in the previous fixture against them we created many chances and the game ended 2-2,” Bernard reasoned.Harbour View will next play against 10th-place Tivoli Gardens on Sunday at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex starting at 3 p.m. and Bernard hopes his team will continue scoring goals and win the game. “Well, for us, the aim is to get into the last four. It is a motivator for the team, and although Tivoli are down at the moment, we know that every team has high hopes,” Bernard stated.
Roberto Di Matteo plans to step up Chelsea’s preparations for the new Premier League season when they face the MLS All-Stars tonight – but Fernando Torres will not be involved.Manager Di Matteo has slowly eased in his players in friendlies against Seattle Sounders and Paris St-Germain, making a host of substitutions in both games.This time some are likely to complete the entire 90 minutes as part of their build-up to the new campaign, while others may play for an hour.However, Torres, who was given an extended break after his involvement in Euro 2012, is not being considered for the match.Torres joined the squad in the United States this week and could feature against AC Milan in Miami on Saturday.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest DuPont (NYSE:DD) and The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) announced the U.S. site structure for the global agriculture leader the companies intend to create following the planned separation of DowDuPont into three independent, publicly traded companies.The corporate headquarters for the Agriculture company will be located in Wilmington, Delaware and will include the office of the CEO and key corporate support functions. Sites in Johnston, Iowa and Indianapolis, Indiana will serve as Global Business Centers, with leadership of business lines, business support functions, R&D, global supply chain, and sales and marketing capabilities concentrated in the two Midwest locations. In addition, the independent Agriculture company will feature DuPont in the company’s name, following completion of the corporate naming and branding process.“This efficient structure takes full advantage of the unique expertise and resources that exist in each location, enabling us to deliver the long-term opportunity for the leading global Agriculture company we intend to create,” said Edward D. Breen, chairman and chief executive officer of DuPont. “Our deep presence in Iowa and Indiana will continue the close ties to our customer base and the broader Agriculture community, while leveraging the existing corporate infrastructure and expertise we have in Delaware — DuPont’s home for more than 200 years.”The structure of the Agriculture company was specifically developed to ensure the cost discipline and efficiency necessary to achieve the previously stated $1.3 billion in synergies, while establishing the strongest foundation possible for sustainable growth over the long term — which will in turn create long-term opportunities for the company’s global employee base and local communities. This structure enables the intended independent Agriculture company to consolidate DuPont’s and Dow’s complete Agriculture capabilities across seed and crop protection in three primary locations, which is integral to achieving the planned synergies.“We want to thank the leaders of each state for a highly constructive, cooperative process to achieve the best possible approach that leverages key advantages in each location. As we advance plans for the intended merger, DuPont and the state of Delaware are committed to leveraging our respective science infrastructures and competencies to nurture the emerging science and technology innovation hub in the state,” Breen said.“The proposed combination of Dow’s and DuPont’s agricultural businesses will create a U.S.-based global leader with the scale and breadth necessary to deliver greater value and choice for growers worldwide and compete against the largest global competitors,” said Andrew N. Liveris, chairman and chief executive officer of Dow. “Combining each company’s strengths in science and R&D, with increased global market access, enables greater opportunity for innovative new solutions in both seed and crop protection. The headquarters location of the Agriculture company being announced as Wilmington, with global business centers in Indiana and Iowa is consistent with the intended headquarters of the Material Science company, to be named Dow, being headquartered in Midland, Michigan, but having global business centers in other U.S. and global locations.”“Today’s announcement is another step toward our creation of a leading global agriculture company. The intended Agriculture company will be highly focused, stronger, more competitive, more resilient and better equipped to deliver growth and long-term, sustainable value than either DuPont or Dow could deliver on its own. Both companies have highly respected brands in the agriculture industry, such as Pioneer and Mycogen, which we will continue to build and leverage. Going forward, we will be better equipped to meet and exceed grower expectations for innovation in crop technology and agricultural services. We intend to bring a broader suite of products to the market, faster, to increase grower productivity and profitability,” Breen concluded. With the announcement of the intended Agriculture company site structure, each headquarters location of the three intended independent, publicly traded companies now has been determined.Agriculture Company: A leading global pure‐play Agriculture company that unites the Seeds and Crop Protection businesses from DuPont and Dow. The combined entity is expected to have the most comprehensive and diverse portfolio in the industry and a robust pipeline with exceptional growth opportunities in the near‐, mid‐ and long‐term. The complementary offerings will provide growers across geographies with a broad portfolio of solutions and greater choice. The Agriculture company will be headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. In addition, the independent Agriculture company will feature DuPont in the company’s name.Material Science Company: A pure‐play industrial leader, consisting of Dow’s Performance Plastics, Performance Materials and Chemicals, Infrastructure Solutions, Consumer Care and Automotive Solutions (excluding the Dow Electronic Materials business) operating segments, as well as DuPont’s Performance Materials segment. The combination of complementary capabilities is expected to create a low‐cost, innovation‐driven leader that can provide customers in high‐growth, high-value industry segments in packaging, transportation, and infrastructure solutions, among others, with a broad and deep portfolio of cost‐effective offerings. The Material Science company will be headquartered in Midland, Michigan. In addition, the independent Material Science company will feature Dow in the company’s name.Specialty Products Company: A leading global specialty business focused on attractive secular growth markets where innovative science capabilities offer a clear competitive advantage. The company is expected to be composed of four strong businesses which include DuPont’s Nutrition & Health, Industrial Biosciences, and Protective Solutions businesses as well as the integration of DuPont’s Electronics & Communications business with Dow’s Electronic Materials business unit. The Specialty Products company will be headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware.Prior to the intended separation into three independent companies, DowDuPont will be dual headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware and Midland, Michigan.Both parties continue to plan for the closing of the transaction during the second half of 2016, subject to satisfying the necessary closing conditions including obtaining the required pre-merger regulatory approvals.

Ole Miss Tickets Sold OutThe Rebels are coming off their first nine-win football season since 2009 and the anticipation for the next chapter is apparent, as Ole Miss has sold out of season tickets in record time, according to Athletic Director Ross Bjork. Was just asked if I wanted to tweet this out first….I jumped at the chance. Thanks to our #OleMiss family! #WAOM pic.twitter.com/Rje3iHISjf— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015Earliest (on record) we’ve sold out of @OleMissFB season tickets…….June 23. Expecting new sales record as well! pic.twitter.com/viVYZGn9el— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015 After defeating conference opponents like Alabama and Texas A&M during its 7-0 start to the season, it’s easy to see why Ole Miss is excited about the glaring support from its fans.The Rebels didn’t close the 2014-15 season out as strong as they had hoped, losing four of their last six games, but that’s not going to keep the always-proud fan base down. And one can only assume this kind of enthusiasm will pour over into The Grove and then Vaught-Hemingway Stadium come September 5, when the Rebels open up the season at home against UT Martin.
FAYETTEVILLE, AR – SEPTEMBER 2: General view during the game between the University of Southern California Trojans and the Arkansas Razorbacks on September 2, 2006 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Southern California won 50-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)2015 is not going the way that Arkansas envisioned. After ending last season with all kinds of momentum, the Razorbacks have lost two straight games to Toledo and now a struggling Texas Tech team. As ESPN’s Shannon Spake was getting ready to interview the winning coach, Kliff Kingsbury, her mic caught an unidentified Arkansas player saying “god we suck.” It’s not too loud, but with headphones in, it is very clear.“God we suck.” pic.twitter.com/wtx7WdOt4P— Jack Lyall (@jackllyall) September 20, 2015We’re sure plenty of Arkansas fans share the same sentiment after the last few weeks.
