This survey’s order book balances are almost always in negative territory, even when other measures show growing orders.“Prospects for the manufacturing sector remain very positive. Demand is steadily improving, helped by the revival of export orders after some weakness last month, and manufacturers expect slightly strong production growth in the three months ahead,” said the CBI’s head of economic analysis, Lai Wah Co.“However, inflationary pressures within the sector have not fully faded, and firms are predicting a faster rise in output prices over the next quarter,” she continued.The domestic prices index jumped to its highest since May at +11 versus +5, while output expectations rose to +10 from +6.

Take the factory figures released yesterday: manufacturing output rose strongly in July and is now up by 4.9 per cent over the past year, the fastest growth since 1994. The recovery in manufacturing is mainly reflecting higher demand for capital goods rather than consumer goods or intermediate goods, suggesting that the consumer slowdown is going hand in hand with a return of business investment. It also confirms that the UK is successfully moving its much-reduced manufacturing base towards high value added capital goods and away from regular consumer goods, which are cheaper to make in China. Production of capital goods rose 8.7 per cent year on year during the past three months, while that of consumer durables was flat. Recent growth rates for capital goods output are the highest since data began in 1995, an analysis from Citigroup reveals. Investment spending collapsed during the crisis, as firms slashed outlays to boost liquidity and repay debts. With capex picking up globally, the weaker pound is helping UK?exporters. That is why I would urge the Bank of England to push through a symbolic, quarter point hike in interest rates: this would send a strong signal that the economy is normalising, that the Bank is serious about fighting inflation and that it realises ultra-loose money cannot go on for ever. Before I am inundated by emails from people dismissing me as a crazed optimist, let me point out that I’m no such thing. Growth will be weak this year and next; the UK’s ability to expand sustainably has been hugely reduced. We are in for years of mediocre, often hesitant growth; and the coming months won’t be as good as the first couple of quarters. But that doesn’t mean we should ignore whatever positive news we do get. BP’S WOES (CONT.)Some companies cannot win. At the start of BP’s crisis, the firm was criticised for failing to admit that the spill was entirely its fault. Then when the media realised that the situation was far more complex, and that Barack Obama was deliberately downplaying the role of US contractors, the media slammed BP for not defending itself more competently. And now that the beleaguered oil firm has finally published its take on what really happened, it is being attacked for trying to shift the blame. The real problem is that while the report actually makes interesting reading (see summary below), it is unlikely to convince US lawyers and legislators still baying for the firm’s blood. Shareholders should brace for more turbulence ahead.OBAMA’S NON-STIMULUSAnother month, another stimulus plan from Barack Obama, whose Democratic party is trailing disastrously in the opinion polls ahead of November’s mid-term elections. The wheeze won’t work: America has many problems, but insufficient government spending isn’t one of them. Whenever I speak to US executives, I am struck by a much more important issue: they feel they are up against the most anti-business administration since Jimmy Carter’s appalling presidency. They worry that they could be hit at any time with higher taxes, new regulations and – in some cases – even outright nationalisation. No wonder US firms are holding back on investing or creating [email protected] Tags: NULL Wednesday 8 September 2010 8:29 pmlast_img read more

Bank shares in the US also rose on the news, helping the Dow Jones index close 0.8 per cent higher at 10,544.13.The Basel committee has given weaker lenders until 2015 to boost their core Tier 1 capital ratios to 4.5 per cent, with a further grace period until 2019 to accommodate an extra 2.5 per cent conservation buffer – a timescale more generous than most institutions had hoped. Bank of America chief executive Brian Moynihan said yesterday he is a “strong supporter” of the rules. “There is a need to strike a balance of protecting against losses while not harming future prosperity,” he said.However, many banks will be forced to raise eye-watering sums to meet the requirements. “It will be hundreds of billions [of euros],” European Central Bank Governing Council member and head of the Basel committee Nout Wellink said of the capital-raising needs yesterday. “Partly they will have to retain profit for years which they cannot use to pay shareholders or bonuses. For another part, this will vary from bank to bank, they will have to get it from the capital market,” Wellink said. Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, warned that the cost of borrowing will rise as a result of Basel III, spelling the end of the cheap money era. “All the changes are good from a stability perspective but add billions to the fixed operating cost of a bank. The consequence is that inevitably the cost of credit will rise,” she said.Others complained that the rules on capital holding did not go far enough. Christophe Nijdam, a bank analyst at AlphaValue, told City A.M. the rules on extra buffers “have no teeth” and warned: “When you look at the stress tests, most nations’ regulators made sure their banks weren’t singled out. National regulators won’t use the countercyclical buffers, and even if they do they won’t communicate it to the markets.”Adding to investor cheer, China over the weekend reported that industrial production climbed nearly 14 per cent in August from a year ago, with data from the world’s second biggest economy coming after analysts had forecast a slowdown. last_img read more

Takefuji eyes bankruptcy as it becomes the biggest Japanese lender to collapse

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Share JAPAN’S Takefuji Corp is preparing to file for bankruptcy with $5.2bn (£3.2bn) in debts, making it the biggest consumer lender to fail under the weight of court-ordered interest repayments and tighter lending rules.Takefuji, which has been considered at risk for failure because it doesn’t have the financial backing of any of Japan’s big banks, is making final preparations to file for bankruptcy protection.Once Japan’s largest moneylender, Takefuji said it had not decided to file for bankruptcy, but would not comment on whether it was considering such a move. “It is untrue that we made such a decision as some media have reported,” it said in a statement.Shares of Takefuji closed untraded yesterday due to a glut of sell orders. Trading in the stock had been suspended by the Tokyo bourse for most of the day due the news.Analysts have said this highlights a major risk to the industry. A Japanese court in 2006 ruled the lenders had charged too much in interest and ordered them to repay borrowers.

Ex-Sportingbet boss floats jet charter firm

first_img Share SPORTINGBET’S former chief executive Nigel Payne will this morning storm back into the market spotlight with the flotation of his new venture, private jet charter firm Hangar 8, on the Alternative Investment Market (Aim).Payne – who led Sportingbet from 2000 to 2006 and has since been a non-executive director – is non-executive chairman of Hangar 8, which says the charter market is set to balloon by five per cent per annum from 2011 as business travel returns strongly.The firm has raised £2m on its admission to Aim through a placing of 1.33m shares – representing around 21 per cent of its total share capital – at 150p per share.Hangar 8, which manages private jets for wealthy owners as well as chartering planes, said it would use the proceeds to increase spend on marketing, in order to attract new jet owners and high net worth charter customers to the business.It also plans to bring the maintenance of its aircraft in-house, hoping to achieve cost savings and boost margins.PAUL SHACKLETONHEAD OF CORPORATE FINANCE, DANIEL STEWARTPAUL Shackleton has specialised in the small to mid cap corporate finance sector since 1996, having previously worked in the small company team at UBS and helped to found Bridgewell Securities before joining Daniel Stewart seven years ago.Shackleton’s link with Nigel Payne, the former Sportingbet chief executive and now chairman of Hangar 8, is well-established: his team at Daniel Stewart acted as nominated adviser (Nomad) and broker to Sportingbet for many years on the Alternative Investment?Market (Aim), before it moved over to the main list of the London Stock Exchange in May this year.Daniel Stewart is still retained as a secondary broker and adviser to the online gaming firm on the main market.Shackleton was partnered on the Hangar 8 advisory team at Daniel Stewart by Emma Earl, who joined the firm in November 2009 from NCB.

E.ON will sell assets in bid to trim debt

first_imgWednesday 10 November 2010 7:41 pm GERMANY’S E.ON, the world’s largest utility, promised investors minimum dividends for two years, seeking to restore confidence in an industry unsettled by slumping prices and demand.The triple whammy of lower industrial production, declining power and gas prices as well as prospects of higher taxes in markets such as Germany has made the utility sector the worst-performing in Europe for the second year in a row.New chief executive Johannes Teyssen is seeking to mend ties with investors and said yesterday that the company’s dividend for 2011 would drop no more than 13 per cent to €1.30 a share, and its 2012 payout would remain at that level.“As prospects for E.ON’s operating business are weak the dividend was the last hope” for investors, said Equinet analyst Michael Schaefer.Investors seemed unconcerned that the dividend pledge means E.ON might pay out more of its earnings than it had been planning, and E.ON shares rose 2.2 per cent to close at €22.27, outperforming the STOXX Europe 600 utilities index. “A stable dividend is something fantastic these days,” said Herbert Wertz, who helps manage €260bn for insurer Generali.By announcing €15bn (£12.8bn) in divestments through 2013 E.ON bolstered confidence in its ability to dole out the payout as the picture for earnings in coming years remains bleak.As power prices in Germany, Europe’s largest power market are close to six-year lows, and industrial production, a key measure for energy demand, dropped to the levels of early 2004 in Europe, E.ON is seeking growth outside Europe. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp E.ON will sell assets in bid to trim debt Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com KCS-content last_img read more

Sandeesh’s star dims as screen experience flops

first_img A 6am summons to Pinewood studios and Sandeesh’s brain was whirring. Pine… wood… Pine… “I think it’s a furniture store”, she informed the others of the home of British cinema. Their task was to sell a “big screen experience”, a rather grand description for getting £15 off harassed shoppers so their children can stand against a blue screen.The teams were given stalls in Westfield (it’s a shopping centre, Sandeesh) but first they had to do some filming. Synergy – led on Lord Sugar’s insistence by Sandeesh – wanted to give the kids a bit of glamour and excitement so the choice was obvious: the indoor ski slope in Milton Keynes.Meanwhile Stuart (Apollo’s team leader) headed to a track to live out his Top Gear fantasies, taking just a moment to let everyone know about the BMW he owns.As ever Stuart demonstrated considerable self-awareness: “I have to reign in my extreme masculinity in this task”. I’m told those watching in HD will be able to see testosterone dripping down the screen.Leading a team of women, he quickly asserted his authority, reminding them of his own successes and unassailable instincts. Poor Stella, a decrepit 30 years old, was written off for weaknesses such as the need to make notes. Even the normally mild-mannered Nick was rattled by Stuart. “Who does he think he is?”, he hissed in his best Downton Abbey voice. Perhaps Nick was intimidated by that extreme masculinity.Despite Stuart’s best efforts, Apollo did well. Jo in particular excelled at multitasking: buying props, attracting customers, entertaining children and explaining why the price had suddenly risen.Things weren’t so smooth on Synergy. With little organisation and Jamie huffing that his talents were being wasted, their stall opened an hour late. With little interest from the punters, they slashed their prices and stole the other team’s idea. “Anything’s worth a go”, was Sandeesh’s verdict.Inspiring as her motto was, it wasn’t enough to secure victory and Sandeesh found herself in the final three for the fourth time. With the innocent eyes of a woodland creature and the demeanour of a grounded teenager, she took Liz and Chris with her, the team’s hardest workers. Lord Sugar went through the motions but it was clear who his victim would be; Sandeesh’s small screen experience came to an abrupt end.

The government has slowly whittled down its stake, with the bank paying back $20bn in preferred stock earlier this year. Last week the government sold 2.4bn shares for $10.5bn. It now estimates it has a cumulative $12bn profit from the bailout, including interest and dividends of $2.9bn.The Government currently holds a total of 27.6bn ordinary shares in Lloyds (headed by Eric Daniels), including 15.8bn shares taken up in Lloyds’ rights issue. This is equivalent to 41 per cent of total share capital. The total government outlay was £20.3bn. Lloyds’ current market cap is £45bn, valuing the government’s stake at £18bn, meaning an immediate sale would lose the taxpayer in the region of £2bn.The Government currently holds a total of 90.6bn shares in RBS (headed by Stephen Hester), including 51.0bn non-voting B shares. This is equivalent to 68 per cent of voting share capital and 83 per cent of total share capital. The total government outlay was £45.5bn. RBS’ current market cap is £45bn, valuing the government’s stake in the bank at £37bn – meaning an immediate sale would lose the taxpayer £8bn. Tags: NULL whatsapplast_img read more
