Potash:BHP was unethical

first_img Share Tuesday 31 August 2010 9:31 pm POTASH said yesterday its suitor BHP Billiton has been “inappropriate and highly unethical” by cold-calling many of its customers while embroiled in a hostile takeover deal. BHP, the Anglo-Australian mining giant, earlier this month launched a $38.6bn (£24.1bn) hostile takeover bid for Potash Corp, the world’s largest fertiliser company.Potash said in a letter to its customers it recently learned that Chris Ryder, the head of potash marketing for BHP, had called many of them.“Since the purpose of BHP Billiton’s call clearly was not to solicit your potash order from BHP Billiton’s Jansen project…we consider this contact to be inappropriate,” said Stephen Dowdle, Potash Corp’s head of sales, in the letter dated 30 August.“We can only assume that BHP Billiton’s purpose is to sow seeds of doubt and confusion about the future of Potash,” he added.

He added: “It has been three-and-a-half years of hostility, anger and ultimate negotiation. We have reached what we believe to be an extremely fair resolution that benefits the company and its shareholders.”Sportingbet fell foul of a US law that effectively bans internet gaming. The US Department of Justice said Sportingbet deliberately used payment processing methods that were designed to deceive credit card issuers, which bar the use of their cards for internet gambling, and took steps to mask payments of winnings to customers.Sportingbet had agreed to cooperate with the government probe, and made employees available for interviews.Shares in the firm leapt 16 per cent yesterday as investors gambled on takeover offer now the case is effectively over.Further consolidation in the gaming industry is expected in the wake of the recent $3.3bn tie up between rival PartyGaming and Austria’s Bwin.Analysts at Altium Securities said: “With the removal of this major regulatory concern, we view Sportingbet as an ideal takeover target,” adding the fine was at the bottom end of their estimate. last_img read more

A year earlier TNK-BP earned $1.68bn on revenues of $10.26bn.Meanwhile, its largest rival, Rosneft, yesterday reported third-quarter earnings that had more than doubled year-on-year, from $2.57bn from $1.16bn last year. That was above the $2.46bn analysts had predicted. The government is looking to privatise 15 per cent in coming years. Crude output rose 5.3 per cent to 2.33m barrels per day (bpd) from 2.214m bpd in the same period last year.In dollar terms, costs at TNK-BP, Russia’s third-biggest oil company, half owned by the British-based major, rose 18 per cent, it said yesterday. Transportation tariffs – mainly the cost of shipping oil through the Transneft state pipeline system – rose 19 per cent.Forex effects amounted to $200m, TNK-BP said.TNK-BP, which agreed to buy BP’s Venezuelan and Vietnamese assets for $1.8bn as the British major raises funds to pay for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, is also at an “initial point” in talks for its Algerian assets, said chief financial officer Jonathan Muir.Muir also said Indian oil company ONGC had right of first refusal on BP’s Vietnam assets and had about six weeks to exercise them.Aside from acquisitions, Muir said, TNK-BP cut its plans for capital expenditure to $4bn from a planned $4.4bn. It plans to keep capex steady around $4bn in coming years.

Funds will also have to inform employees of portfolio companies of their plans.The head of the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) warned the directive, which will also impose restrictions on remuneration and tough new capital requirements, risks undermining the economic recovery.The Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) directive will also force hedge funds and private equity houses to comply with a costly registration regime before they can market funds in the EU. Simon Walker slammed the “defective directive”, saying Brussels should instead be fostering the industry as a means of shoring up the economy. He said the new rules are “an act of folly akin to a drowning man waving away a rescue boat because he did not like the colour”.A compromise deal struck means companies that have completed the registration process will be allowed to market their funds across Europe, rather than having to apply to each individual country, as France was pushing for. Walker said: “This remains a defective directive. The EU has taken a hostile interest in the wrong industry at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons. No serious analyst has concluded that private equity, let alone venture capital, caused the crisis or served to enhance it. These regulations will needlessly increase costs.”The directive is expected to be approved by the European Parliament next month. The final draft was bogged down for months as EU governments and the European Parliament fail to agree on a common text, with the UK’s laissez-faire attitude clashing with France’s approach. London scored a partial victory, with the legislation allowing non-European domiciled funds – including most UK funds, which are based offshore for tax purposes – to apply for a “passport” allowing them the same pan-European marketing rights as their EU-based counterparts.

YouView presses ahead with plans for 2011 launch

first_imgWednesday 10 November 2010 7:19 pm YouView presses ahead with plans for 2011 launch BBC-backed online TV service YouView stepped up preparations for its launch next year by officially approaching content providers who want to join the venture.YouView, which will support video and audio streaming as well as web-based apps, is discussing the technical implications of uploading content from disparate providers to a single platform.Richard Halton, chief executive of YouView, said: “Our ambition is to open up the TV screen to content providers who until now have been unable to build an audience, bringing viewers a brilliant choice of content.“YouView is creating an open environment for content providers to play in and this will take some technical innovation. To develop the most effective processes for content providers we need to at first work closely with a few that can prove our model and ensure it’s scalable. Our plan is to extend the programme out as we start to build common expertise.” Ofcom last week gave the green light to the controversial video-on-demand service after declining to launch a competition investigation.Competitors including Virgin Media and BSkyB have raised concerns it could distort competition in the increasingly important content on-demand market. The platform will allow users to stream on-demand content from a number of providers from a single set-top box. It is backed by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five, BT, TalkTalk, Orange and Arqiva and will allow providers to stream pay-as-you-go as well as free-to-air content. whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com KCS-content center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal 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 Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The general secretaries of Britain’s unions will attend a Trade Union Congress (TUC) meeting on 28 January to discuss the possibility and mechanics of bringing Britain to a halt through coordinated industrial action.The unions hope to bring unrest to the country in a protest over a two-year public sector pay freeze, job losses and announcements from the government on pensions reform.The strikes are planned to take place around the time of chancellor George Osborne’s 23 March budget, with plans for a protest march through London on 26 March. The final findings of a report into pensions reform by ex-Labour cabinet minister John Hutton, also due in March, could inflame tensions between the government and the unions. The former work and pensions secretary recommended a 3 per cent increase on workers’ pension contributions in an October interim report, in a move that angered union leaders. Yet the threat of action has incensed the City, with business groups saying it could damage the fragile economic recovery.A spokesperson for the CBI said yesterday: “Strikes prevent ordinary people going about their daily lives, whether they are getting to work or getting the kids to school. This type of action could also harm the economic recovery at what is a very critical time.”Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive of marketing agency WPP Group yesterday warned of a “bumpy period” for businesses around springtime. He was speaking on Sky News.Labour leader Ed Miliband joined growing opposition to union-led industrial action yesterday.Speaking on the Andrew Marr show, he said: “What we are not going to do under my leadership is go back to the heroic failures of the 1980s.“Strikes are a last resort and a sign of failure on both sides… they are not the way you change a government, the way you change a government is through the ballot box.” last_img read more
