C&WW has also recently been subject to speculation over another possible bid from US telecoms giant AT&T.However, C&WW pared gains on the stock market later yesterday, as analysts remained largely sceptical over the strategic sense of a bid from Singapore Telecom, particularly as the group has limited UK operations.“We see limited scaleability of the business if Singapore Telecom does acquire C&W, with the majority of its revenues linked to UK-based operations,” said Citigroup’s Arthur Pineda.Last year, about a quarter of C&WW’s £2.27bn in revenue came from its operations in India, the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia. In July, C&WW investors were rocked by a first quarter update from the group, which admitted that the withdrawal of large quantities of money from UK public sector budgets in the wake of the new government’s emergency Budget would hit trading in the current year. The stock later eased closing down 0.2 per cent at 73.6p.

Actelion, which is trying to cut its dependence on heart and lung treatment Tracleer, said clazosentan failed to meet its primary endpoint in the Conscious-2 trial in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage, a type of bleeding in the brain.The failure in the long-awaited Phase III study means it is very unlikely that clazosentan will make it to market, although a company spokesman said all the data still needed to be evaluated and the group would provide an update with Actelion’s third-quarter results on 21 October. Another late-stage trial is still ongoing. “We have four drugs on the market and a growing revenue stream,” the spokesman said. whatsapp Sharecenter_img 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 PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Actelion shares fall after haemorrhage drug fails to impress in experts’ study Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

Business leaders say public sector cuts are the way to reduce deficits

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content THE Conservative party conference starts on Sunday and George Osborne may take some comfort from a new KPMG report that supports the case for austerity, though he may find it too radical in other ways. Meeting the Deficit Challenge is a comprehensive analysis of the historical evidence on deficit reduction. It concludes that decisive, front-loaded public spending cuts are the best answer to a ballooning deficit. KPMG cites Alberto Alesina and Silvio Ardagna’s 2010 NBER working paper and argues that spending cuts are not only more benign in their effects on growth than tax rises, but expansionary, improving confidence and bringing strong positive effects on private investment.Conservatives with pet budget priorities may not be consoled, however. Tuesday’s leaked letter by Liam Fox to David Cameron protested against cuts to the armed forces. But a KPMG survey of senior corporate decision makers released alongside their report found that 75 per cent of those surveyed in the UK supported defence cuts to help reduce the deficit, the third highest level of support for such cuts in the world, well above the global average of just 47 per cent.In Ireland, where the national deficit has grown even worse with yesterday’s announcement of the Anglo Irish bailout bill, KPMG found that the business community is eager for action. Not only did they show the world’s highest percentage of support for welfare and defence cuts to reduce the deficit – 83 per cent backed each – but there was a remarkable 100 per cent consensus that Ireland’s public sector pay bill must be slashed.Perhaps most refreshing of all is KPMG’s look to the medium term, which suggests “a radical re-engineering of government” to reduce costs. The report recommends “exploring new opportunities in areas like infrastructure privatization”. Paul Kirby of KPMG in the UK argues “private involvement may need to go deeper into the heart of government”, including schools. If so, today’s austerity could be just the start of far larger changes in our relationship with the state. 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 PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Today whatsapp Thursday 30 September 2010 10:59 pm Share Business leaders say public sector cuts are the way to reduce deficits Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Total operating profit increased by 21 per cent to $1.67bn. Exploration and production made the FTSE 100 company profits of $761m, while the operating profit for the business’s liquified natural gas arm was up 43 per cent to $725m.The group’s chief executive Frank Chapman said: “Alongside a set of good quarterly results, we have made significant progress in the delivery of our growth plans.”Over the third quarter the company increased the estimate of the resources at the Tupi, Iracema, and Guará fields in the Santos Basin of Brazil. It now calculates that the fields contain 10.8bn barrels of oil, a third more than previous estimates. However, the most positive news for BG came from Australia, where earlier this week it got the green light for a liquid natural gas project after it was approved by the government, which will be the first of its kind anywhere in the world. BG plans to sink $15bn into the project, which will involve the construction of a 540km underground pipeline in Queensland that will take gas to the coast to be exported by tanker. It is expected to produce 8.5m tonnes of liquified natural gas each year when it comes on line in 2014, equivalent to a tenth of the UK’s total gas consumption. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Axa Asia Pacific receives £8bn bid

first_imgMonday 15 November 2010 2:36 am whatsapp John Dunne Australian wealth manager AMP and French insurer AXA launched a new $13.1bn-plus (£8.1bn) bid for AXA Asia Pacific, a move set to challenge banks’ domination of the world’s fourth-largest wealth market down under.A deal would put AMP at the top of Australia’s $1.2 trillion wealth management market, and end one of Asia’s largest takeovers that has dragged on for a year.It would also allow AXA to exit Australia and help it to focus on its stated goal of growing in Asia, where businesses in eight countries contributed 60 per cent of its operating earnings in the first half of 2010.In a complex stock and cash deal, AMP will pay A$4.15bn for AXA Asia Pacific’s Australia and New Zealand business, while AXA SA will pay A$ 10.4bn for the Asian assets, including taking over A$1.3bn in debt.“This should eventually close the deal,” said Tom Elliot, managing director at Melbourne-based hedge fund MM&E Capital. “The AXA Asia board has no other bidders and the deal meets the price they want. The only issue is it is heavily scrip-based.” Share Tags: NULLcenter_img Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com whatsapp Axa Asia Pacific receives £8bn bid Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

CONSUMERS LESS CONFIDENTAs the graph shows, since June this year consumers have become steadily less confident that it is a good time to spend money on big ticket items: October’s net buying intention score was -31 per cent. These figures put consumer spending intentions below what they were in October 2009 (net -24 per cent), suggesting that November and December 2010 could also struggle in comparison with last year. Some retailers are looking to head off upcoming difficulties by offering time-sensitive promotions, like Sony’s promise to return VAT on pre-Christmas purchases.This unwillingness to commit to big spending is also concerning when considered in the context of the fact that one in four respondents said that their household had saved less money in October than in September.Consumer attitudes to spending suggest that money not saved is not being spent immediately: YouGov respondents were asked what they would do with a windfall of one month’s income; a question which acts as a proxy to judge how bullish consumers are feeling about spending. A majority of 80 per cent claimed they would either save it or use it to pay off existing debt, rather than spend it.Brands will have to work hard in order to get consumers to part with their hard-earned pounds this year.Stephan Shakespeare is co-founder and chief executive of YouGov.
