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 broker believes AMEC’s recent half-year results were stronger than expected, with signs of a strengthening pipeline that should drive growth. RBS raised forecasts for 2011 by three per cent, and its target price by almost 20 per cent, although it warns earnings per share improvement might not emerge until 2012 /13. CATLINNumis rates the insurance group a “buy” with a target price of 420p, following the firm’s interim management statement. The broker is impressed by Catlin’s investment income, with earnings $36m (£22.3m) ahead of its 2010 forecasts, and notes that losses from claims have not changed materially. Numis has increased its pre-tax profit forecast for the year by 21 per cent to $426m. LLOYDS BANKING GROUPBank of America Merrill Lynch rates the bank a “buy” with a target price of 110p. The broker believes the market has over-discounted for Lloyds’ £27bn exposure to Irish loans, and that the imminent arrival of a new management team and UK banking recovery gives further reason to buy. It admits that its forecast of 17 per cent return on net asset value in 2012 might be proved to be too harsh. last_img read more

Image source: Getty Images center_img AIM-listed biotech firm Synairgen (LSE:SNG) has been on a rocket ride since markets crashed in March 2020. In fact, the share price is nearly 1,000% higher than it was at the beginning of January.The real kicker came on 18 March. On this day, the FTSE 100, S&P 500, Dow Jones and practically every other world stock market index plummeted. But SNG shot up because of a release that detailed how the company’s wholly-owned SNG001 treatment would be trialled on coronavirus patients.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…SNG001 is an inhaled version of the antiviral protein interferon-beta-1a. In its injectable form, under the brand name Avonex, the drug is produced by NASDAQ-listed Biogen and used to treat symptoms of multiple sclerosis. The Synairgen formulation is converted into a fine spray and delivered to the lungs in much the same way as asthma medication.Covid-19 in 2020Looking at a short-term chart of the Synairgen share price I can see very many peaks and troughs. This says to me that the market is unsure of its true fair value.It’s only natural in the middle of a global pandemic for investors to consider buying companies with potential Covid-19 treatments.The medical world is racing to find treatments and vaccines for the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Clearly there is a newly-urgent need to assess new treatments for the respiratory illness that can occur as a result.But I would warn that such investments come with significant strings attached.At a market cap of £75m Synairgen is about the smallest-sized company I’d be happy to trade shares in. At this level, liquidity is likely to be poor. This means there might not always be sellers available when you want to buy, or buyers when you want to sell.The good, the bad, the uglyThe Synairgen board of directors is stacked full of pharma heavyweights. These include non-exec director Dr Bruce Campbell, a visiting professor in pharmacology at King’s College London, and chief scientific officer Dr Phillip Monk, a respiratory disease specialist.I’ve written on other Covid-19 related companies recently, like Novacyt and Omega Diagnostics. The first of these has seen its share price grow by 2,750% since the start of January.But investing in unproven firms is a dangerous game for long-term investors. For every success there are many more companies that cannot follow through on their promises. And the smaller the firm, the more issues it will have with scale. If governments suddenly want 10m of their treatments, there would be huge manufacturing and supply chain challenges.The process of bringing drugs to market is also long, slow and expensive. Costs are high for medical research companies as they have to invest significant sums in clinical trials and stringent regulatory requirements.So when we look back through the balance sheets for Synairgen over the last five years we can see uneven revenue and profits. For example, 2017’s annual revenue was £5.03m, with £1.63m in pre-tax profit. In 2018 revenues were £100,000 with a pre-tax loss of £4.1m.I’d say an investment would be fine for seasoned traders and those who know their biotech inside and out.For retirees and novices, I would urge more caution. If you intend to sit on an investment for 10 years, you could be left holding shares at a loss when everyone else has scarpered.

British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) has gained nearly 20%. However, IAG’s share price is still the bigger loser in 2020, down by 65%.Here’s why I think easyJet is a better buy at the moment. And why I think IAG is a stock to avoid at the moment. 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…easyJet: Short haul winnerAir travel has been massively disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. But now that flying has restarted, airlines are delivering quite different results.The strongest recovery so far is in popular short-haul holiday routes. easyJet says that flights to popular European destinations like Faro and Nice were 84% full in July.Bookings for the rest of the summer are “better than expected”, according to easyJet CEO Johan Lundgren. He says that scheduled flights will return to 40% of normal capacity over the next couple of months.easyJet appears to have a clear route back to normal operation. The disruption caused by in-flight hygiene measures such as face masks and reduced cabin service is bearable on a cheap short-haul flight. People want to go on holiday after lockdown.The airline still faces some challenges, but it seems clear to me that easyJet’s business model still works. Its financial situation looks safe enough to me, too. I don’t think easyJet will run out of cash.IAG faces tougher testIAG’s main airline brands are British Airways, Iberia, and Aer Lingus. As flag carriers for the UK, Spain, and Ireland, these airlines run a lot of long-haul flights. The prospects for recovery in this market look much tougher than on short-haul routes.Whereas easyJet hopes to achieve 40% of flying levels by the end of September, IAG is only targeting 26% of its normal schedule, rising to 34% during the final quarter of 2020. I think this is one reason why IAG’s share price is underperforming easyJet’s at the moment.Demand for long haul is heavily dependent on corporate travel. This could be slow to recover. Businesses want to save cash and quarantine restrictions mean that short business trips to many destinations aren’t practical right now.Why I expect the IAG share price to crashBack in June, easyJet acted quickly and raised £419m in a share placing. The level of dilution was fairly low, as the new shares issued represented just 15% of the existing total.IAG has now decided it needs more cash, too. It’s planning to raise a chunky €2.75bn by selling new shares. My sums suggest this is likely to increase IAG’s share count by at least 65%.Worse still, we won’t know how the new shares will be priced until September. I think there’s a good chance investors will demand a big discount to invest fresh cash at this time. If I’m right, we could see IAG’s share count double. In that scenario, anyone who didn’t take part in the fundraising would see their share of the airline’s future profits halved.I expect IAG’s share price to slump when the terms of the fundraising are finalised. For now, I think the situation is just too uncertain. I’d avoid IAG shares until we know more.

The day Jerry Collins played for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club’s 2nd XV

first_imgSaturday Jun 6, 2015 The day Jerry Collins played for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club’s 2nd XV There are some stories that will live on in rugby folklore for all of time. The day Jerry Collins, who tragically died in a car crash yesterday, turned out for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club, in England’s fifth tier, is one of those such tales. While for many of us we only knew him as the hard-hitting, no-nonsense All Black who played fifty times for the greatest team on the planet, a privileged few got to see a completely different side of Jerry ‘Hitman’ Collins, and the recollections of his humility are endless.Back in 2007, following New Zealand’s shock exit from the Rugby World Cup, Collins was in the UK for a while longer, so when presented with a chance to have a run out, he did so, shocking those he played with, and no doubt against.In the below video, one of his teammates on that day recounts the story of how he was injured, so Collins lay down on the turf next to him for a photo, as can be seen above.“I never got into the team photo and that was the one thing I desperately wanted – my photo taken with Jerry Collins just to prove this had happened,” explained Trevor Wayborn.“He lay down on the floor next to me and had his photo taken with my head being held until the ambulance came to pick me up.”Going on to wear the Barnstaple RFC socks when turning out for the Barbarians against South Africa was a lovely touch, and one that in their own words, put the club on the map.The story speaks for itself, and you can watch another version, via BBC Wales, on page two. That one includes words from the great man himself. May he, and his partner, Rest in Peace.Jerry Collins: From New Zealand to BarnstapleAs the rugby world pays tribute to Jerry Collins, Sport Wales remembers when the former All Blacks and Ospreys Rugby star famously turned out for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club’s second XV while on holiday in Devon back in 2007…Tune into BBC Radio Wales Sport from 7pm as we remember a rugby legend after his tragic death » http://bbc.in/1EZDPuyPosted by BBC Wales Sport on Friday, June 5, 2015ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article This month’s networkHow to innovate Almost every company follows a cycle that swings between expansion andcontraction (Slice of Life, Training Magazine, June 2001). As night followsday, after a period of rationalisation, whether of systems or personnel, itwonders where the next round of growth is going to come from. The next question is, why aren’t our people more innovative? The answer is that most big companies don’t allow them to be. They areidea-killers, not generators. Bureaucratic decision processes, rigid budgets,reward systems that punish risk taking, likewise career structures, politicalinfighting – any one of these can kill a good idea stone dead on the spot. Small wonder that except in a very few cases entrepreneurs would run a milerather than join a big firm. With this kind of energy deficit, a fewbrainstorming sessions are unlikely to provide useful answers. Unless the company can turn itself into a “venture engine”, inwhich generating ideas is part of its business model, periodic drives to boostentrepreneurial goals and innovation will yield little. People know from bitterexperience that at the first sign of a slowdown, managers will revert tocontraction mode, slashing budgets and head counts. New projects and peripheral activities – where most innovation comes from –are the first casualties. As this suggests, innovation is only secondarily a matter of inventing newproducts. It is, above all, an attitude of mind at top-management level. Simon Caulkin Editor-in-chief, FTdynamo.com Red tape binds MAs The analysis on Modern Apprenticeships (Training Magazine, June 2001)highlighted some interesting concerns. Within Birmingham City Council, the Department of Leisure and Culture hassuccessfully trained and retained eight Modern Apprentices ranging from libraryassistants, to horticultural trainees and play workers, over the past threeyears. The support from both managers and trainers has been phenomenal, butwhat stops the department from carrying on this successful programme is thehuge volume of paperwork that needs to be completed and the bureaucracy thatexists when trying to access the funding. We have all learnt so much from the process, but find the red tape bothtime-consuming and demotivating. Claire Riley Personnel officer, Leisure and Culture, Birmingham City Council Trainer input will make e-learning a success While e-learning continues to increase in popularity among organisations of alltypes, there is a risk that the effectiveness of many e-learning programmes isbeing undermined due to insufficient trainer-input in the development andimplementation. The best way to launch e-learning programmes is in a classroom sessionsupported by a trainer, either present or online. This ensures that, at thefirst session, learners spend sufficient time to make good initial progress sothat self-starting will be easier next time.
