Posted on

first_img whatsapp Regal backs Energees bid KCS-content UKRAINIAN investment vehicle Energees Management raised its offer for Regal Petroleum from 24p to 38p per share yesterday, in the latest volley between bidders for the London-listed oil explorer. The Regal board has backed the £85m bid for up to 70 per cent of the firm’s share capital. Hadron Capital and Renaissance Securities, who own 13 per cent of Regal shares, have already given irrevocable undertakings on this offer. Geo-Alliance and Heamoor, both controlled by Ukrainian investor Victor Pinchuk, have until Friday to improve their informal bid of 25p per share that was first mooted in December.Smart Holding, the owner of Energees Management, said yesterday the takeover of up to 70 per cent of Regal would be good preparation for future flotations in the UK.“Our Ukraine business Metinvest will be [floated] at some point and the sooner we build a reputation in the public market the better,” said Denis Rudov, Smart’s chief financial officer. “Our aim is not just Regal – we aim to build the biggest oil and gas participant in Ukraine, and we want to give the opportunity to the public market to participate in this growth.” Regal will remain listed on AIM, with shares set to resume trading this week. Shareholders have until 18 February to accept Energees’ offer. Regal’s colourful founder Frank Timis now holds less than a three per cent stake in the firm, Energees said yesterday, having sold his stake before any offer was announced. Heamoor and Geo-Alliance were not available for comment yesterday.Regal shares closed at 31.25p on 17 January, the day before they were suspended in accordance with AIM takeover rules.ANYA WEAVING & PAUL FRANKFURTBANK OF AMERICA MERRILL LYNCHBank of America Merrill Lynch, long-time corporate broker to Regal Petroleum, is advising during the bidding war between Energees and Geo-Alliance/ Heamoor. Anya Weaving, a director at BAML, and Paul Frankfurt lead the advisers.Weaving has plenty of experience in M&A battles, having advised KNOC during its tumultuous £1.9bn takeover of Dana Petroleum, which concluded at the start of the year. Paul Frankfurt acted as corporate broker for Flybe when it floated on the London Stock Exchange in December to value the firm at £215m. On the Energees Management side, UBS is acting as financial adviser and broker. Thomas Onions and Alison Harding-Jones, both directors of mergers and acquisitions, are leading the team.Harding-Jones helped Poland sell shares worth £796m in utility firm Tauron last year, while Onions counts recent takeover target DataCash among his clients.

Future of former All Black Julian Savea up in the air after savaging from Toulon boss

Posted on

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Up in the air: Julian Savea takes a catch for Toulon against Stade Francais (Getty Images) Stay Strong my brother, it’s a difficult season for the team, we’ll be good at team, we need you. there will be better days. https://t.co/W7uFZiKQRs— Mathieu Bastareaud (@BastaOfficiel) February 18, 2019 The winger has fallen foul of Toulon’s outspoken president Mourad Boudjellal, who said to media after a recent defeat “he is no longer welcome in Toulon!” She also gave her followers a timely reminder that abuse which goes beyond mere criticism and into abuse can have a seriously damaging affect on a player’s mental wellbeing. As well as the below she also tweeted: “And people wonder why mental health in rugby had become a big problem. Take a minute to be considerate of people’s feelings instead of bashing them behind a keyboard or phone screen.” Putting all the negativity behind me and heading into this week with a positive attitudewhether I am welcomed or not I am still contracted to my team and I will continue to train week in and week out with my brothers #endofstory #letsmoveon pic.twitter.com/y7QBqLOyVV— Julian Savea (@juliansavea7) February 17, 2019Savea’s wife, Fatima, also took to social media to highlight some of the horrific comments directed at the out-of-form wing online. This type of carry on from @mouradrct won’t exactly entice other players to play for @RCTofficiel ..Business or not you just don’t treat ppl like this.Good luck wherever you play next bro! @juliansavea7 https://t.co/rIYHm9QQHL— Drew Mitchell (@drew_mitchell) February 17, 2019Toulon’s next league match will be against Pau, who are one point and one place above them in the Top 14 table. Take a minute to think about how your words can affect someone’s life and their mental health.— T I M A (@_timasavea) February 16, 2019Today other’s from the team came out in support, too. Absolutely disgusted by this shit. pic.twitter.com/TZzU1pRIpu— T I M A (@_timasavea) February 17, 2019 Future of former All Black Julian Savea up in the air after savaging from Toulon bossJulian Savea left New Zealand considered one of the most lethal wingers in world rugby, with 46 tries in 54 Tests for the All Blacks. But things have failed to spark for him this season at Toulon. And after the French giants took their tenth Top 14 defeat for the season, falling 19-10 to Agen and lying in 11th place in the league, the club’s president took out his anger on the wing.Talking to French publication RMC Sport, the famously outspoken Mourad Boudjellal said: “I’m going to ask for a DNA test. It is not Savea that we recreated but ‘Savéapas’.“He must have changed on the plane. If I were him, I would apologise and I would go home. When we reach this level of play, we must apologise and leave.Related: Anatomy of a Top 14 rugby transfer“I told him he was released and he was no longer welcome in Toulon!”As you can imagine, this savage outburst from Boudjellal has drawn international attention. However, Savea, 28, gave a calm and measure response to the Toulon supremo’s comments, as you can see below. It remains to be seen if Savea will be involved with the club at all going forward.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news in rugby.last_img read more

Springboks thrash Argentina in Johannesburg

Posted on

first_imgSunday Aug 10, 2008 Springboks thrash Argentina in Johannesburg The Springboks thumped Argentina by a record scoreline of 63-9 at Coca-Cola Park on Saturday afternoon. The home team ran in nine tries against a below par Pumas outfit, but will need to cut out the errors when they meet New Zealand next weekend.Peter de Villiers’ men started slowly in the face of some passionate and physical play by the visitors. The Boks falling 9-0 behind after 24 minutes with Felipe Contepomi kicking three penalties as the Springboks struggled to get to grips with the direct Puma approach.The Springboks were guilty of over-elaboration inside this first half with lateral running and 50-50 passes being punished by some crunching defence and superior physicality at ruck time by the Pumas.The game changed on the half-hour mark when a overcooked pass from Ricky Januarie fell kindly to Jean de Villiers who cut through the Pumas backline before feeding Adi Jacobs for the first try of the game.Minutes later Jongi Nokwe crossed for a try on his debut with some quick feet and intelligent running helping the winger ghost through to score.From nowhere the Springboks took a 14-9 lead into the break.The Springboks started the second half as they’d finished the first as the slick passes and attacking play finally started to pay dividends. Luke Watson and JP Pietersen combined deep inside the Springbok half following a Mtawarira turnover and the winger chipped ahead for a rampaging Pierre Spies who gathered well before crashing over the line.From there on in it was all South Africa with JP Pietersen and Fourie du Preez rounding off attacking moves with some slick finishing.The rout continued during the last 20 minutes with Joe van Niekerk grabbing a brace in his 50th Test after coming off the bench. Bismarck du Plessis got himself in on the action before JP Pietersen grabbed his second to push the scoreline out to 63-9.

The four townhouses are located on the right bank of the city of Lucerne, a prime location in a residential district. The southern site receives an ideal amount of sunlight and an excellent view of the nearby lake, the city and the Alps. The plot is on a slope bounded by the Adligenswilerstrasse and a wall, where the continuation of the Rigistrasse was planned but never realized. A pending redevelopment of the neoclassical townhouse on the Adligenswilerstrasse 18 (a separate project) and the neighboring property to the east created space for four new townhouses and a two-story, underground garage.Save this picture!Courtesy of alp Architektur Lischer PartnerThe four townhouses’ uniform material and volume respond to the surrounding small-scale development. They follow the orientation of the seaward slope and the adjacent streets and buildings. Despite the proximity of the townhouses, the volumes are placed at different positions and heights to each other, creating a greater sense of privacy for the inhabitants.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe townhouses are within walking distance of the Adligenswilerstrasse garden. The design of the area on the slopes and the open meadow, bordered by dense bushes and strategically placed shrubs, is based on the original villa’s garden. One network of paths with concrete stairs and walkways opens up to the individual houses. The surrounding concrete walls are made from a special water-gravel mixture with a smooth surface.Save this picture!Courtesy of alp Architektur Lischer PartnerBecause buildings may only be on one level of the terrain, the buildings have surprisingly simple forms. The houses are built of solid yellow Jurassic limestone. The roof is covered with plates of the same material.

Coronavirus: lessons for fundraisers from the past

Posted on

first_imgPractical perspectivesIf you’ve not discovered Mark Phillips’ Pinterest board of old charity ads do explore it today.  It gives you a sense of connection with other fundraisers over the past century or so, in good times and bad.Mark has also shared some advice for what to do now, gleaned from his study of wartime and emergency fundraising. How fundraisers faced the 2008 financial crisisUK Fundraising has reported through downturns and crises.What did a gathering of fundraisers from around the world do in October 2008 when they faced the prospect of fundraising amid the global financial crash?At the International Fundraising Congress in Holland on 17 October 2008 they convened a last-minute meeting before the first scheduled meeting of the day and shared advice on what to focus and how to cope with the worrying changes ahead.Watch UK Fundraising’s 23-video playlist of video coverage from that one-hour session. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 Civilians’ experiences then were of course utterly different to those faced now by the one fifth of the world’s population that is currently living under movement restrictions. Which means that channels available to ask and to give have to be different. Sound and video quality 12 years ago was not too good – don’t be put off by the sound at the very beginning, as Daryl Upsall and Sean Triner play a recording of President Franklin D Roosevelt.You can also watch Alan Clayton‘s one-off session eight weeks’ later at the Waterloo Action Centre, London, on the morning of 12 December 2008.Now the Chairman of ACA Fundraising & Philanthropy, Alan put on ‘Fundraising through and beyond a downturn’ for free, and used it to distil his experience and practical advice on what charities could do in unfamiliar waters.UK Fundraising was there to record his advice in another 20-video playlist: Coronavirus: lessons for fundraisers from the past Same but differentThe need to carry on drives all kinds of professionals to find and use other approaches.

Tagged with: coronavirus COVID-19 fundraising history SEE ALSO War horses for causes: the 24 First World War cavalry horses that raised the equivalent of c£16 million (19 May 2014) COVID-19 is not the first disaster to challenge charities. UK Fundraising looks at how charities and fundraisers have battled adversity in the past and what that might tell us now, including video from two stirring self-help sessions on the brink of the 2008 financial crisis.For many fundraisers this will be their first experience of fundraising in the wake or midst of a natural disaster, public health epidemic or financial crisis. Other fundraisers will have experience of weathering challenges like the 2008/09 financial crisis and decade of austerity, the 9/11 aftermath, foot and mouth outbreaks, regional flooding, and the HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 1980s/90s.And that doesn’t include the many fundraisers who live and work in countries affected by civil conflict, often over many years.So, there is a lot of experience amongst fundraisers of working and succeeding in the harshest of conditions. Some fundraisers are beginning to share this experience, to highlight any lessons learned that might be applicable in this very different situation.Others are looking further back to what fundraisers and donors have done in past emergencies. Howard Lake | 25 March 2020 | News For more inspiration from past fundraising and giving, do explore UK Fundraising’s 25+ years of archives.

I-20 passing lanes to be closed overnight

Posted on

first_img The passing lane closures at Interstate 20 and Crane Avenue will now remain in place overnight as construction of a crossover is completed, Texas Department of Transportation Spokesman Gene Powell said.Construction of the crossover began Wednesday, and the closing passing lanes in the area of I-20 and Crane Avenue had been planned to reopen at night, but Powell said they will now remain closed overnight in order to improve safety by not exposing workers to traffic twice a day to set up barricades around and to save several hundred dollars a day in costs.Powell said the passing lanes will be closed for the next three weeks as construction is completed before reopening.A bridge rail upgrade at I-20 and East Loop 338 also began Thursday with perimeter signs being set, Powell said, and the contractor plans to close both eastbound and westbound driving lanes next Thursday, Jan. 11, and there will be various ramp and lane closures as the bridge rails are updated over the next 10 weeks.

Cordray may have fanned the flames in February when he defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions and several of the Bureau’s mortgage-related regulatory changes, namely the Qualified Mortgage rule and the new servicing rules, in a public speech at CUNA.Reps. Adam Schiff (D-California) and Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) led the bipartisan group of House members in writing the letter, which praised credit unions and community banks for the “safe and sound” lending opportunities they provide for their customers. The lawmakers also noted in their letter that the CFPB routinely does not distinguish credit unions and community banks from the largest lenders for which their regulations were intended.The CFPB “may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit,” according to the letter.“(The CFPB) may unintentionally burden community-based financial institutions and limit the choice and availability of consumer credit.”The letter cited a recent report by the Government Accountability Office on the regulatory impact of some of the provisions set forth by Dodd-Frank, and “the study found that there are a number of cases where financial services have been limited or discontinued by community-based financial institutions due to new requirements.”The lawmakers pointed out that Section 1022(b)(3)(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act gives the CFPB authority to exempt “any class” of entity from its rulemakings and regulations.“As you undertake rulemakings, we urge you to consider the benefits credit unions and community banks provide and ensure that regulations do not have the unintended consequence of limiting services or increasing costs for credit union members or community bank customers,” the House members wrote.The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) praised the lawmakers’ efforts.“We thank Representatives Schiff and Stivers for their leadership on this issue, as well as all of the members of Congress that signed the letter for their recognition of the overwhelming regulatory burden facing today’s credit unions,” NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler said.Click here to view the entire letter. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
