The bank acquired its holding in the world’s largest asset manager last year through its acquisition of Merrill Lynch and has always regarded it as an investment, rather than a core asset.INVESTORS SCORE AS SKS BETS ON THE POORSKS Microfinance gained as much as 18 per cent in its trading debut in Mumbai today as investors bet that tiny loans extended to some of the world’s poorest people can deliver huge profits.

Lactalis makes a move for Yoplait with a £1bn plus offer

first_img Wednesday 17 November 2010 8:05 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Lactalis makes a move for Yoplait with a £1bn plus offer EUROPE’S largest dairy group Lactalis said it had offered to buy all of French yoghurt maker Yoplait with a view to creating a world dairy giant.Unlisted Lactalis did not put a price tag on its offer, but a source close to the deal said the offer valued Yoplait at around €1.3bn (£1.1bn), or over 10 times its operating profit.The Lactalis offer would however be below the €1.5bn pricetag some close to Yoplait have been looking for.“The Lactalis offer, the sole French offer, would give birth to a big French dairy sector champion worldwide and would keep the Yoplait brand within the national patrimony,” Lactalis said.Unlisted Yoplait has been in the spotlight since the summer when private equity fund PAI Partners said it wanted to sell its 50 per cent stake in the company.The sale process, which started this month, could also draw interest from food giants such as Nestle, General Mills, which distributes the Yoplait brand in the United states, Asian food groups and private equity groups.The sale process was officially launched a few days ago, according to sources.The second largest Yoplait stakeholder, France’s largest milk cooperative Sodiaal, reiterated yesterday it would not sell its 50 per cent stake.

Obama hit by split on tax cuts

first_img US President Barack Obama said last night he still disagreed with Republicans on whether to extend Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, but the two sides agreed to negotiate a deal in the coming days.Obama said he appointed Treasury secretary Tim Geithner and budget director Jack Lew to work with congressional Republicans and Democrats to come up with a compromise to prevent broad tax increases from occurring next year.“We should work to make sure that taxes will not go up by thousands of dollars on hard-working middle-class Americans come 1 January, which would be disastrous for those families but also could be crippling for the economy,” Obama said after a meeting with congressional leaders at the White House.“There was broad agreement that we need to work to get that resolved before the end of the year.”If no agreement is reached, all tax-paying Americans could see higher bills next year, giving Republicans a chance to score politically by making tax cuts their priority when taking control of the House of Representatives in January.Finding common ground before that time will be tricky.Obama said he and many Democrats continued to believe that it would be “unwise and unfair” to spend $700bn (£450bn) to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans while trying to reduce the US deficit.Republican leaders, emboldened by gains in the mid-term elections, argued that it would be better for the economy if tax cuts for all Americans were extended. The so-called Grand Old Party won a majority in the House in the 2 November elections, but the Democrats still control the Senate.

Prices were down 2.4 per cent on the end of 2009, averaging £164,708 per house.From September to November, prices were 2.1 per cent lower than in the preceding three months, the house price index (HPI) showed. The three month comparison is less volatile than the month-by-month data, which actually showed a 1.8 per cent increase in October. “Such a varied monthly pattern is consistent with a relatively flat underlying trend for house prices,” said Martin Ellis of the Halifax.Yet the decline is not near the drops of five or six per cent in 2008. And prices in November remained £10,045 higher than in April 2009.And the situation in London and the home counties is far rosier than in other parts of the country, according to LSL property services.Today LSL released data showing house price rises throughout London. Prices in Camden, Merton and Barnet have increased by over 20 per cent in the past three months.The average house price in London has reached a new high of £383,243, it said. This is partly due to foreign buyers seeking out top end London properties.And rises were also recorded in Oxfordshire (17.1 per cent) and Windsor and Maidenhead (13.4 per cent), according to LSL. center_img Share 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 The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Inflation hits highest level in six months

first_img Inflation hits highest level in six months ABOVE target inflation rose further in November, jumping higher than economists expected, official data showed yesterday.The news cast further doubt over the Bank of England’s loose policy and monetary stimulus.“Another round of quantitative easing was always a long shot and this will reduce the odds still further,” said economist Andrew Goodwin of the Ernst and Young Item Club.Consumer prices were up 3.3 per cent compared to the same time last year, above October’s rate of 3.2 per cent – and considerably above the government’s two per cent target and the EU average of 2.3 per cent.And the retail price index (RPI), which includes mortgage payments, increased by 4.7 per cent, a jump from October when it stood at 4.5 per cent.The Bank is watching the “uncomfortably” high levels of inflation “like hawks,” deputy governor Charles Bean said on Monday.Yet Bean and his colleagues show little sign of increasing interest rates, blaming “temporary” inflationary pressures such as high commodity prices, the depreciation of sterling and increases in VAT.“Measures of inflation supposedly stripping out tax effects remain very low at around 1.5 per cent,” said Jonathan Loynes of Capital Economics.And low borrowing costs and rising productivity are actually causing falls in business prices, financial consultants Fathom reported yesterday. However, core inflation, which excludes rising food and energy prices, remains stubbornly high at 2.7 per cent – “way higher than the equivalent measures in the US and Eurozone,” said Loynes.Core prices are “simply not responding to the apparent spare capacity” that the Bank had assumed, he added.Constantly high inflation could cause people to demand higher wages and places further pressure on prices, according to economists.The risk from inflation expectations “has probably increased,” admitted Bean, who also sits on the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).Andrew Sentance is believed to be the only member of the MPC to have voted for an increase in rates.
