CSC clashes with investor over mall bid

first_img CSC clashes with investor over mall bid KCS-content whatsapp A ROW between Capital Shopping Centres (CSC) and one of its biggest shareholders boiled over yesterday over the property firm’s plan to buy the Trafford Centre.Simon Property Group, which owns five per cent of CSC, has slammed the bid and says it will rethink its plans to make an offer to buy the whole of the UK-based property giant. It also said it would consider offloading its stake in CSC in protest at the “value destructive” acquisition.Simon Property has demanded CSC hands over due diligence information regarding the proposed £1.6bn acquisition of the Manchester-based shopping centre and says it will vote against the bid at an upcoming shareholders’ meeting.CSC will require 50 per cent of its shareholders to vote in favour of the bid, which will see Trafford Centre owner John Whittaker take a 20 per cent holding in the firm. No cash will be involved in the transaction.Last month CSC raised £209m through a share placement to help fund the bid and pay down debt.A CSC spokesman told City A.M. it has not received a bid from Simon Property and plans to press ahead with its Trafford Centre plans, calling it “one of the finest shopping centres in Europe” and a “unique opportunity”.If CSC acquires the Trafford Centre, it would own 10 of the top 25 UK malls, cementing its status as a retail heavyweight.CSC was formed out of the demerger of Liberty International earlier this year. It had recently ruled out acquisitions saying it planned to grow organically in its existing malls.PHILIP ROBERT-TISSOTCITIGROUPSIMON Property Group has hired Citigroup as its sole financial adviser. Heading up the team will be Philip Robert-Tissot. Robert-Tissot has been involved in a number of major takeovers in recent years, advising Kraft on its deal to buy Cadbury and acting as lead adviser for Spanish construction firm Ferrovial in its takeover of BAA in 2006. He is currently Citigroup’s UK managing director. Grant Kernaghan from Citigroup’s global markets division is also on the team. He represented Onex and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board in their spat with components manufacturer Tomkins earlier this year. He also guided outsourcing company Xchanging through its £530m flotation in 2007.Capital Shopping Centres (CSC) has taken on Bank of America Merrill Lynch and UBS to advise on the acquisition. Simon Mackenzie-Smith and Simon Fraser are heading the team at BoA. Mackenzie-Smith has been with Merrill Lynch since 1996, when he joined as managing director of investment banking. He has been involved in a wide range of mergers and acquisitions and restructurings – including Punch’s acquisition of managed pubs operation Spirit in 2006. Co-head of corporate broking Simon Fraser has spent 14 years at the bank, working alongside Mackenzie-Smith on the Segro, Debenhams and Liberty deals, as well as Inchcape, Natex and SSE. UBS corporate broking managing director Jonathan Bewes and head of investment banking Hew Glyn Davies are also advising. 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 TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCute Wednesday 8 December 2010 9:01 pm Tags: NULL Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapplast_img read more

Industry 2021 predictions: part seven – regulation

first_img Industry 2021 predictions: part seven – regulation ME: Mass vaccination and the removal of Covid-19 restrictions will obviously be a game-changer for the land-based gambling industry worldwide. In the UK, the government’s review of the Gambling Act 2005 will bring much-needed certainty to the online industry in relation to future changes to regulatory requirements. I believe operators should look at the review positively, as an opportunity to engage with the government on how they are regulated in the future. GH: Virtual Reality. But don’t listen to me, I’ve said that for a decade and so far I’ve been wrong. I just wish that the end consumer could experience what I have at some of the coolest booths at ICE. 23rd February 2021 | By contenteditor Regulation As we look to the year ahead, industry experts share their thoughts on the opportunities and challenges facing the industry.  In part seven we talk to experts in regulation. In part one we heard from igaming operators and suppliers, in part two land-based operators and suppliers and part three finance experts. Part four then turned to those in marketing, part five recruiters and part six technology and innovation experts. In part eight we will focus on social responsibility. GH: We operate in an industry with a low reputation. We’ve done that since our industry was born 25 years ago, but the problem has deepened. That is somewhat of a contradiction, since most jurisdictions have gone from monopolies to regulated markets, and as a consequence our legal right to exist and operate has been strengthened. But nevertheless, it appears that we haven’t seen the bottom yet. New records of decreased reputation are broken annually and it is always possible to fall another 100% in reputation compared to last year. Low reputation causes, among other undesirable things, a high political risk – a risk that can evolve in tax raises and regulations that disrupt the market. Mark Balestra, partner, Segev LLPMelanie Ellis, partner, Northridge LawGustaf Hoffstedt, chief executive, Branscheforenigen för Onlinespel (BOS)David McLeish, partner, Wiggin Looking back at 2020, what – other than the Covid-19 pandemic – did you feel was transformational for the industry? And how much of a lasting effect do you think the Covid-19 pandemic will have going forward? Topics: Legal & compliance Strategy Compliance Legal Licensing Regulation Management Mark Balestra: I can’t think of anything, but I’m not sure there was ever going to be much that was truly transformational. It was poised to be a year of growth and adaptation to the new legal landscape in the US, not transformation. The pandemic has undoubtedly accelerated the need for industry participants to ensure diversity in terms of both product offerings and geographical focus – particularly for historically retail-led businesses. Interviewees AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address ME: Liberalisation and restriction of gambling comes in waves and at the moment we see the US on the curve up towards greater liberalisation and the UK, along with a number of other European jurisdictions, a good way down the curve towards greater restriction. What might seem to be an imbalance is purely a result of those European jurisdictions beginning the move towards liberalisation 10-20 years before the US. Ultimately, the US is likely to find itself in a similar position to Europe, with each state operating its own licensing regime for gambling but potentially finding themselves needing to increase regulatory requirements in light of negative public and political sentiment. Do you feel an imbalance is developing, with rapid expansion across the US contrasting with increasingly stringent regulations in the more mature European markets? Like most industries, gaming and gambling has been gradually undergoing the transition into digital distribution. There are those who have for whatever reason been slow or reluctant to make the transition, but with Covid-19 they had no choice. The last year forced businesses to embrace digital channels for distributing their products, and for the most part, they’ve discovered that it is very doable. The pandemic necessitated innovation in a way that we’ve never seen. What do you feel is going to be a game-changer for the industry in the coming year? GH: It comes as no surprise that Europe is slowing down. The reasons vary of course, but one thing that unites most EU jurisdictions seems to be that the politicians fail to understand that it is not themselves, nor the gambling industry, that defines the future of the gambling market. The power is in the hands of the consumer. The consumer decides via her smartphone whether horse betting, casino or esports shall grow, and also whether the regulated or the unregulated market shall prevail. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Mark Balestra On the other hand, what do you feel could disrupt the sector or slow progress? David mcleish Image: Pixabay gustaf Hoffstedt MB: The sports entertainment industry has been walloped by Covid-19 and it’s going to be a long time yet before attendance at major sporting events reaches pre-Covid-19 levels. Prior to the pandemic, the courtship of sports gambling and sports entertainment was just getting underway. We were on the cusp of something big, and the need for new revenue streams will make it even more explosive than we thought it would be. We’re going to see some huge deals being made between sports teams and gambling businesses – and probably a lot of them. Gustaf Hoffstedt: Sweden and Denmark passed the 50% threshold, with a larger proportion gambling online compared to land-based gambling. Approximately 10 additional EU states plus the UK are on their way to undergoing the same transformation. The pandemic will accelerate this development, but the transformation to online gambling would have happened anyway. Melanie Ellis: Aside from the obvious, some of the major challenges faced by the UK gambling industry in 2020 stemmed from increasing regulatory restrictions, including the ban on credit cards being used for online gambling from April 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift from land-based to online gambling and also led to some particular products, such as live casino and betting on esports, surging in popularity. Once restrictions are lifted there may well be a boost to land-based casinos, as people will be keen to make the most of their freedom to enjoy nights out with friends. However, much damage has been done to the sector and sadly some operators may not be able to continue. MB: It depends on what sector you’re talking about. In a lot of ways there are already imbalances – in sports betting in particular – due to Europe’s progressive policy compared to the US, and the US is actually on the way to evening things up. Regions: Europe US Melanie Ellis MB: Two things – and they overlap. First, one has to wonder how many online gambling addictions were created and/or worsened in 2020. The industry may have to reckon with the social impact of an epidemic. And in addition to grappling with the social component, the industry could be facing renewed anti-gambling efforts at the policymaking level, fuelled by the increased incidence of problem gambling. Second, and somewhat related, I would imagine disposable income will be scarce among a large portion of consumers. So, perhaps a lot of customers whom gambling operators would ordinarily count on for revenue will be either gambling with money they don’t have to spend or simply just not gambling. The US and Europe appear to be on diverging paths when it comes to regulation, with opportunities for online operators opening up in the former while policymakers seem intent on curtailing their business activities to the point where market exits are likely in the latter. Tags: iGB 2021 Predictions ME: Increasing requirements for operators to conduct affordability checks on customers and pressure to restrict VIP programmes will increase the compliance burden next year and may well dampen revenues. Ultimately, I do not believe that operators want to take money from customers who are suffering from problem gambling, or who cannot afford their level of gambling. However, there is a risk that the measures put in place will make it difficult for customers who are gambling safely and within their means to continue to gamble as they have done in the past. I hope that both the Gambling Commission and the government, in its review of the Gambling Act, will take a pragmatic approach, bearing in mind the need to strike a reasonable balance between protecting those who are vulnerable and protecting the individual freedoms of those who are not. DM: The macroeconomic impact of Covid-19 will inevitably take a toll on most industries. However, as the online gambling industry has matured, so have the sources of finance available to it (be it from private equity or via the recent rise of SPACs in the US). DM: Online gambling is a truly global business – there have always been pockets of interest in growing markets with consequential impacts on valuations driving M&A activity on the back of it. The race to control your own technology roadmap appears to be at the forefront of minds currently in the US. However, the US and the mature European markets are at very different stages in their life cycles. The opportunities in each have their pros and cons as do the myriad of possibilities in other areas of the globe. There can only be some many winners in each market and spreading yourself too thinly could be as risky as putting all your eggs in one basket – only time will tell who gets the balance right. DM: A combination of the outcome of the Gambling Act review and the reshaping of business focus, whether that is organic or, more likely, through mergers and acquisitions. David McLeish: The long-awaited announcement of the government review of the Gambling Act in the UK is likely to culminate in significant changes in the domestic and, to an extent, the international landscape. The outcome of the review and the Gambling Commission’s consultation on affordability has the potential to either remove ongoing uncertainty in a positive manner or trigger further consolidation and/or UK market exits from smaller players that elect to focus their firepower elsewhere. It may also shape the approach of regulators in other regulated, or regulating, markets. That is why the industry’s approach to the calls for evidence is key.last_img read more

You won’t retire early with a Cash ISA. Here’s what I’d do instead

first_img Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! You won’t retire early with a Cash ISA. Here’s what I’d do instead Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’ve not had a Cash ISA for years and with good reason. Today I’ll explain why anyone even considering retiring early should steer clear of them.The true cost of a Cash ISAAny account that stops you from paying tax sounds great, in theory. In practice, however, the Cash ISA’s the worst destination of them all.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…When even the best instant access account pays a measly 0.9%, any money stored here will barely rise in value, particularly when inflation is factored in. No, to have any chance of retiring early, your best bet is the stock market. Let’s say you have £10,000 and two options. Either you put this money in the Cash ISA, or you put it in a Stocks and Shares ISA. In the latter, let’s assume you invest every penny in a fund holding lots of big, global companies. It returns an average 10% per annum.After 30 years, the first option will give you a little over £13,000. In the second, you’ll have £174,500! That’s the power of compound interest.Sure, this example is simplified. Interest rates will vary over a 30-year period (although I can’t see them going up for a while). Average investment returns for the fund could be lower or higher and I’ve not taken into account any fees.  You also need to commit to not touching your money for a long time.Nevertheless, this brief example shows how investing in stocks over a long timeline will give you a far better shot at retiring early than a Cash ISA ever will. Balancing the risk/reward ratioCan I speed things up? Potentially, yes. The annual return in the example above is great but not exceptional. You can actually retire earlier (or retire after the same amount of time with a lot more money) if you outperform that hypothetical fund. There’s just one snag. To do this, you’ll probably need to take more risk with your capital. For me, this means looking lower down the market for smaller stocks that have the potential to be big winners. This requires time, energy, and, yes, a fair dollop of luck. Many minnows go bust, taking investors’ money with them.That said, the potential returns are massive. Take a look at the share price of drug company Synairgen last week and you get an idea of just how much money can be made over a very short period of time. Now compare this to the Cash ISA interest rate.A less-risky alternative to picking your own stocks would be to put your faith in a professional investor. To get your money’s worth, be sure to only back small-cap managers who’ve shown they can outperform the market most of the time (it’s very hard to do it every year).If paying higher fees is something you don’t want to do, however, you could always invest in an exchange-traded fund that tracks small companies around the globe or within a specific country.  Bottom lineDon’t dismiss early retirement as a pipe dream. Take advantage of the best wealth-generating mechanism out there: the stock market. The strategy for getting there may vary depending on how involved you want to be but even a simple approach can yield great results. Oh, and avoid the Cash ISA.

Brazil’s women say: No to Bolsonaro

first_imgAccording to reports on Sept. 30 in the Brazilian web newspaper, Vermelho, about a half-million women and their supporters demonstrated in cities large and small in Brazil on Sept. 29, marching under the slogan #EleNão (not him). This was a solid rejection of the ultra-rightist presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, an ex-military captain who has campaigned on a misogynist, racist and anti-poor platform disguised as anti-corruption. Bolsonaro is considered to be the Brazilian military version of U.S. President Donald Trump.Vermelho reported that there were demonstrations of 200,000 people in both São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with smaller but still significant demonstrations in dozens of other cities.The latest polls show Bolsonaro neck-and-neck with Fernando Haddad for the first round of the election, set for Oct. 7. Haddad is the candidate of a coalition supported by the Workers Party and the Communist Party of Brazil. Each has about a quarter of the votes in the polls, and they are expected to face each other in the Oct. 28 run-off election. There are also elections for the National Congress and the State Assemblies.The massive mobilization of women, led by Women United Against Bolsonaro, indicates growing hostility to the ultra-rightist Bolsonaro.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders urges full and prompt investigation into death threats against journalist

They warned his children, “If your father carries on investigating the Jarallah case he will come to the same end as him.”Jarallah Omar, secretary general of the Yemeni Socialist Party (PSY) was murdered during a political rally in Sanaa in December 2002.

US blogger Gopalan Nair still waiting the outcome of trial

first_img Reporters Without Borders today repeated a call for charges to be dropped against US lawyer, Gopalan Nair, who appeared before a court here on 12 June and again today after he was accused by judges Belinda Ang Saw Ean and Lai Siew Chiu of “insulting a public servant” for which he faces one year in prison.“This trial is a farce. Gopalan Nair appeared today before one of the plaintiffs herself”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. The 58-year old was on 4 June accused of “sedition”, for posting articles on his blog criticising the Supreme Court handling, by the two judges, of a defamation case that ended in the head of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) Chee Soon Juan, and his sister, Siok Chin being sentenced respectively to 12 and 10 days in prison.The 12 June hearing dropped one charge against the blogger that he had insulted the judge, Lai Siew Chiu by email by accusing him of corruption. Nair had said, “What I wrote on my blog is addressed to the whole world. I was accused of sending emails to the judge Belinda Ang and another, but it’s not true (…). police seized my notebook with the password for my email as well as that of my blog”.The case of “insulting” Belinda Ang Saw was heard today with the judge herself presiding over the hearing. Nair was arrested in Singapore, on 31 May, under Article 13D of the Miscellaneous Offences Act over his criticism towards the judge. His blog is still accessible in Singapore. Calling for the charges to be dropped, Reporters Without Borders pointed out that the judges had already had Nair reporting daily to the police.
