The move leaves the future of the tie-up teetering perilously on the brink, with KNOC mulling whether to walk away or go hostile. The Korean firm is thought to be unlikely to raise its already-sweetened offer, given it has the support of many of its target’s shareholders. Dana has faced growing pressure in recent weeks from investors, including its largest shareholder Schroders, to come to the table at a level of £18, which many believe represents fair value for the shares.Its rejection of the offer yesterday leaves Dana’s suitor “considering its options”, KNOC said, reiterating that it believes that the £18-a-share offer “fully and fairly reflects all of the company’s recently announced and ongoing developments, together with its exploration potential”. KCS-content Dana argued yesterday that it had offered to open up its books to KNOC to start due diligence, blaming its rival for jeopardising the process by refusing to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). But critics of Dana’s chief executive Tom Cross remained staunchly unsympathetic to the company’s position, with one fund manager saying that KNOC would be perfectly entitled to refuse, given that such a move often precludes a company from subsequently launching a hostile bid. Dana’s shares initially tanked 12 per cent before finally closing just 3.72 per cent lower at £14.90 yesterday. center_img Share Thursday 12 August 2010 8:27 pm whatsapp Dana is under fire after it rejects KNOC last_img read more

Although all sorts of things are possible in these kinds of situations, it is fair to say that since a meeting between their top executives last week relations between the two groups have been far from cordial.BHP is talking about offering $130 a share for Potash stock, a value that has been described as grossly inadequate by the Potash board.But to make matters even more acrimonious Potash yesterday revealed details of a shareholder rights plan that is automatically triggered when a hostile bidder buys up 20 per cent of its stock.Such schemes, commonly known as poison pills, are not allowed in the UK – one such scheme might have helped Cadbury’s Roger Carr when he got the knock on the door from Kraft. The so-called Potash shareholder rights plan, which seems designed as much to help management keep their jobs as it does to protect shareholders, would have the effect of diluting a hostile bidder’s stake and is designed to force a bidder to pay a premium price.At this stage BHP has not said where it goes from here. It has the financing in place to fund the deal through bank debt and analysts such as Charles Kernot at Evolution Securities will cheer the group along if it can bag this one at the right price. But the early signs are that Potash will be fighting hard to get a higher price and, as ever with these deals, BHP must be careful not to overpay. As broker CLSA says: “this is just the start of a long battle.”SPLIT BANKWhatever the minutes from the last Bank of England meeting say today, there is every reason to think it is becoming harder to produce unanimity amongst Bank members.For months and months as the economy struggled to find a way out of recession, there was little doubt that interest rates had to be held low and there was a need for some loosening of monetary policy through the method known as quantitative easing.But last month’s record increase in food prices has kept inflation above three per cent and sparked warnings that the cost of living will keep rising, provoking concern amongst Bank members about the threat of inflation. This threat is intensified by the imminent rise in VAT which will feed through into the system in 2011.Yesterday Bank governor Mervyn King wrote another letter explaining why the inflation rate was outside the target agreed with the government. King’s view is that the recent inflation blip may last for a while but that it is not being embedded in the system.Bank Monetary Policy Committee member Andrew Sentance is more anxious and has in the past voted for a rise in interest rates.Others are more troubled by fears that the recovery might run out of steam, especially when the public sector job cuts start to come into effect. Many think they know the answer but in truth I am not surprised that the Bank is split and I can only see the splits becoming more pronounced in the months [email protected] Heath is away BHP’s bid provokes poisonous reply KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Why the Green row won’t go away

first_img whatsapp SOMEWHAT predictably the recent appointment of Sir Philip Green to the post of efficiency tsar is turning out to be one of the most ill-judged moves of the government’s (reasonably successful) first 100 days.The tycoon’s call-up has cruelly exposed the differences in policy between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats on tax avoidance.This in itself made it a risky appointment. But because of the cack-handed way in which the affair has been managed, it has a kamikaze look about it.In a smoothly functioning government machine the business secretary Vince Cable should not have heard of Green’s appointment from the political editor of City A.M.Then those in the government who were in the know, such as Danny Alexander, should have been more proactive in arguing why it thinks Sir Green’s own tax arrangements are not relevant to the task he has in hand. Any fool could have told him this question was going to be high on most people’s agendas.Next, the government’s spin machine – sorry, but I’m sure I knew the Prime Minister himself when he was a spin doctor – should have primed Green to expect the kind of question that our political editor put to him (“did your tax affairs come up in discussion with government prior to your appointment?”) and he should have been able to respond in a calm and measured way. It was naive of him and the government not to have done such preparation. Especially when the Lib Dems prior to the election campaigned so vociferously against British business people avoiding tax.Green himself has gone from strength to strength since leaving the public company arena in the early 1990s. But he is a businessman better suited to the private company arena and, by the evidence of the last few days, will struggle to cope with the goldfish bowl world of government.He may well be a retail genius. Certainly few others in the sector appear to rival him.But he is thin-skinned; his four letter word outbursts are legendary and, with his family based in Monaco and his lavish parties, he is probably the last person one thinks of when hearing chancellor George Osborne’s well-worn phrase: “We’re all in this together.” Many Lib Dems rightly feel they were sidelined over the appointment of Green.?It is unlikely they will let this one rest.HOLIDAY TIMEThose who have just come back from their holiday will probably be wishing they had a few more days by the poolside.Well, those kind people at the City law firm Allen & Overy have come up with a scheme whereby partners can get an extra 52 days a year off to help them juggle their family commitments – or sit by the poolside.The main reason for the move is to encourage women on the verge of becoming partners to stay on with the firm.Allen & Overy says 62 per cent of its recent graduate intake was female but only 16 per cent of its current partners are of the fairer sex. The scheme will apply to men and women equally and for those who take it up their pay will be adjusted accordingly. It’s a scheme that will be difficult to put into practice but it deserves to work.

Meanwhile HMV has registered the trademark “363”, based on the address of the company’s first shop, at 363 Oxford Street and could launch its own fashion label.HMV, led by Simon Fox, has already brought out Studio, the clothing and accessories range, in September, which saw the company partner with selected fashion brands, including Boxfresh, Lee Jeans, FLY53 and Eastpak.A spokesman at HMV said: “We recently successfully launched our new fashionwear offer at selected HMV stores around the country.“Though we have no immediate plans, we may also look to develop an own-label option for HMV – most likely for the t-shirts, tops and the like, and we’ve registered the brand name 363 trademark.”ALEXANDER MAMUTALEXANDER Mamut is a colourful figure in Russia’s business elite. Born into a family of Moscow lawyers, Mamut was a friend and political adviser to Russian President Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s. With a fortune of £900m, he is the 655th richest man alive, according to Forbes. The oligarch co-founded Imperial Bank in Russia, and also ran MDM-Bank. Mamut also made significant investments in Troika-Dialog, a Russian investment bank. Mamut’s stake in HMV is only his latest foray into the communications industry. Mamut bought LiveJournal in 2007, a popular blogging site in Russia. In 2008, he also purchased a 100 per cent stake in Euroset, Russia’s largest retailer of mobile head sets.But he has backed failures too, such as Bookberry, a Russian bookstore chain, which went bankrupt in 2009. whatsapplast_img read more

AstraZeneca counts cost of risky drug

first_img KCS-content AstraZeneca counts cost of risky drug DRUGS company AstraZeneca has binned its experimental infant lung disease drug following objections from US regulators, costing the firm upwards of £286m. The company said yesterday its motavizumab drug would be discontinued, after Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisers asked for more information on trials in June. The costs are linked to intellectual property and ongoing research, but AstraZeneca said yesterday the sum will be excluded from core financial figures and should have no impact on earnings per share for 2010. The news comes a week after AstraZeneca’s heart medicine Brilinta was also blocked in the US, though the drug has been approved in Europe, leading to questions about the firm’s risky strategy. “All pharmaceutical companies are exposed to regulatory hurdles, but at least firms like GlaxoSmithKline have experience in emerging markets and in consumer products to offset some of the risk,” said Seymour Pierce analyst Mike Mitchell. “It also shows the inability of the FDA to naturally respond to the demands and requirements of drug developments.”A spokesperson for AstraZeneca said investors are aware of the risks of a company focused on experimental drugs. “We are confident we can create value for shareholders, and are doing a lot of work around understanding the regulatory environment better,” she said.

Clothing retailer Next is due to reveal in a trading update on Wednesday how snow disruption and consumer spending pressures have affected sales over the 24 weeks to Christmas Eve. The firm said in September it expected like-for-like retail sales to shed between 1.5 and 4.5 per cent in the second half of the year, pointing to a steep rise in cotton prices as a catalyst for further drops in 2011. The firm declined to comment yesterday on its performance over the holidays. Analysts at UBS have predicted a 4.5 per cent decline in like-for-like sales, while Seymour Pierce has forecast a 3.3 per cent drop in store sales.Next has previously released guidance predicting annual profit of between £535m and £560m. Also on Wednesday, pizza group Domino’s is expected to announce a strong fourth quarter following a £7m advertising campaign. Analysts at Numis have forecast a pre-tax profit of £36.5m for 2010 on the back of revenues of £185m.The pizza delivery firm has historically fared well during periods of bad weather, with jumps in sales in January 2010 and February 2009, according to analysts at Seymour Pierce. Clinton Cards is up next on Thursday, with the high street greetings card seller hoping to improve on the three per cent drop in like-for-like sales reported in its November interim statement. Waitrose has already revealed its Christmas sales figures were the best ever, despite the icy weather. The supermarket said December sales rose 5.4 per cent on last year, with strong demand for luxury Christmas goods. Parent company John Lewis has said sales at its department stores jumped 26.2 per cent in the first week of its post-Christmas clearance sale. However, market research company Synovate found that shopper numbers between 22 and 26 December were down 6.1 per cent this year.

He will say: “I want one of the great legacies of this Government to be the complete modernisation of our public services. These reforms aren’t about theory or ideology – they are about people’s lives.”Health minister Andrew Lansley will also speak about the plans, adding: “If we want better results for patients and a more efficient NHS, then we must devolve power to GPs.“It is clear that GPs and nurses are ready and willing to take on commissioning responsibilities [and these] changes will enable them to make the decisions that better meet the needs of their local communities and improve outcomes for their patients.”The NHS Confederation has warned the plans are “extraordinarily risky,” could be detrimental to healthcare and even result in hospital closures.
