Northern and Greencore agree merger

By

first_imgWednesday 17 November 2010 8:52 pm Northern and Greencore agree merger Show Comments ▼ FOOD retailers Greencore and Northern Foods revealed plans to merge yesterday, in a deal that will produce one of the biggest chilled food players in the UK. The firms, responsible for Goodfella’s pizzas, Fox’s biscuits and the Weight Watchers range, will be rebranded Essenta once the proposed tie-up is complete in March 2011. Management said yesterday the new business, structured as a merger of equals, will float as part of the FTSE 250 index, meaning Greencore will de-list from the Dublin exchange to meet London trading requirements. The company, which will have a combined revenue of £1.7bn, will be tax-domiciled in Ireland with an operational base in Yorkshire. Under the terms of the deal, Northern Foods shareholders will receive 0.4479 of a new Greencore share for each Northern Foods share held.“We are creating a food business of scale, with a balanced portfolio of products and customers that don’t overlap,” said new financial officer Simon Herrick, who joins from Northern. “It gives us fantastic market conditions. The debt funding that is available to us is frankly embarrassing, although the company will be focused on adapting to the merger for the next year.”The deal needs approval from shareholders on both sides. Around 30 per cent of Greencore investors and 12 per cent at Northern, including GAM International and Odey Asset Management, have backed the merger.Shares in both firms soared yesterday leading to speculation of a counter-bid. “Both companies are now in play,” Clive Black from Shore Capital said.ADVISERS GREENCORETHE Irish food group has hired a veritable army of advisers to lend a hand with the merger. Barclays Capital is acting as financial adviser, joint broker and joint sponsor, with Mark Todd and Jon Bathard-Smith heading the team. Yesterday’s announcement was the first public glimpse of Todd since he joined from Citigroup in July 2009. The Queens College, Cambridge graduate has worked with Imperial Tobacco during its acquisition of Altadis, Tata Motors as it bought Jaguar, as well as buying and later selling Somerfield during his ten years at Citi. Joint broker Investec has worked with Greencore for a number of years, with head of investment banking David Currie still heavily involved. Leading on this occasion is Chris Baird, who joined from Dresdner Kleinwort in 2009. IBI Corporate Finance and Goodbody Stockbrokers, both based in Ireland, are acting as joint sponsor and joint broker respectively. Magic circle firm Slaughter & May is advising on the legal side, with partners John Panichola and Jonathan Marks leading a six-strong team. Panichola’s recent work includes advising Ocado on its initial public offering, while Marks aided GlaxoSmithKline’s £900m pensions buy-in with Prudential.ADVISERS NORTHERN FOODSLEEDS-based Northern Foods has taken on UBS to act as financial adviser and broker, with Herbert Smith providing legal backing. UBS has looked after Northern for more than eight years, with head of investment banking Hew Glyn Davies taking the lead. Davies also advises Sainsbury’s, construction firm CRH and Bank of Ireland, which completed a €1.7bn rights issue in June.Craig Calvert acted as broker, adding to a list of clients that includes grocer Ocado and trader IG Group. Hebert Smith partners Gillian Fairfield and Gareth Roberts provided legal advice. Fairfield specialises in corporate finance, with a specialism in mergers and takeovers. She recently advised Rothschild during Centrica’s hostile takevoer, and Arriva when Deutsche Bahn offered a £1.6bn buy-out. Gareth Roberts has worked with BAA during its £15.6bn takeover by Spanish group Ferrovial and when the firm established a £800m property holding fund. The corporate partner has also given advice to Virgin Mobile on its £1.17bn takeover by NTL, AOL Time Warner during its attempts to poach EMI and brewer Foster’s Group as it sold its beer brand to Scottish & Newcastle.

We currently expect no races to take place in the second quarter of 2020.“There was no team payment expense recorded since such payments are recognised on a pro-rata basis across races on the calendar. Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and relates directly to revenue opportunities.“These costs decreased primarily due to no races taking place and the deferral of non-critical expenses. Certain costs were incurred during the first quarter in anticipation of the start of the 2020 race season, including freight, travel and technical costs relating to the Australian Grand Prix, which was cancelled on the eve of the event.”Will F1 Races conducted in 2020 ??

Photo courtesy of Jericho Road Episcopal Housing Initiative[Episcopal News Service] With the support of the Jericho Road Episcopal Housing Initiative, New Orleans resident Jonathan B. Stewart became a first-time homeowner in 2008, three years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city’s housing stock.“When I first saw the house, I thought, ‘This would be awesome.’ I loved the fact that it was new construction,” said Stewart, recalling the narrow, rectangular three-bedroom house. “It was exciting times, to actually own a piece of property, to purchase my first home.”Now, a dozen years later, that initial purchase has propelled Stewart, 36, on a path to generational wealth-building that enabled him in 2018 to move his growing family into a larger home, a goal that has eluded many low- and moderate-income families, Nicole Barnes, Jericho Road’s executive director, told Episcopal News Service.“A lot of our families have only been in a rental situation, even in their parents’ lives,” Barnes said. Although this year marked the 15th anniversary of Katrina, “we are still in recovery.”The affordable housing nonprofit was created in response to Katrina in 2006 as an institution of the Diocese of Louisiana. Its offices sit on a divide between the multimillion-dollar mansions of New Orleans’ upscale Garden District to the south and the historically disinvested Central City neighborhood to the north.“As we moved into the early recovery after Katrina, we started to look at the community behind the cathedral … an historically underserved neighborhood with a lot of renters,” recalled the Very Rev. David duPlantier, dean of Christ Church Cathedral and Jericho Road board chair. “We weren’t sure how much livable property was there, but it seemed logical that the working Black community who had lived there might come back there first.”Katrina left 80% of the city flooded, but not Central City, which later attracted developers and inflated land values. The land speculation, along with the COVID-19 pandemic, has complicated long-term recovery efforts, Barnes said.“In New Orleans, our economy is heavily based on tourism, and a number of our homeowners work in tourism or ancillary industries,” she said. “We’ve also had the added pressures of extreme housing costs. There was a lot of speculation; that put a lot of pressure on the market.“So we’ve had housing costs that were at least twice what they were before Hurricane Katrina, and wages haven’t gone up a lot,” Barnes said. “Because of COVID-19, we’ve been stagnant in tourism. We’ve seen a housing crisis that is still very much in play here and not just because of the storm anymore.”Beyond ‘sticks and bricks’ to transformationIn the years since Jericho Road was created with an initial $2.3 million seed grant from Episcopal Relief & Development, the nonprofit agency has built or renovated 70 homes for families, Barnes said. Its acquisition of Project Home (another nonprofit housing agency) and its construction crew expanded Jericho Road’s reach beyond Central City, and it later launched additional programs to support struggling residents.In a city where in 2017 about 60% of renter-occupied homes and apartments had a Black householder, compared to 34.7% for whites, homeownership is key to climbing out of poverty, Barnes said.Historically, homeownership aids upward mobility, “yet it is just so far out of the reach of so many people, particularly communities of color,” she said. “Homeownership is the number one way we build assets in America. The way that people can start a business, send their children to college is to take out equity in their home. It is not just a shelter for your family. It positions you to be able to do things in a way that makes your family financially upwardly mobile, and that’s what’s so important about it.”Yet New Orleans’ median yearly income per individual is about $36,000, compared to $53,482 nationally. Most Jericho Road homes are sold to first-time homeowners who earn less than 80% of the area’s median income, she said.Additionally, “about 39% of tourism workers in New Orleans earn an average of $24,000 a year or less,” Barnes said. “If you had a house passed down to you from your parents that you own free and clear — think about how much farther that $24,000 would go toward your ability to take care of you and your family. This is not a luxury. It’s a necessity. It’s critically important.”For Stewart at age 24, homeownership was an anomaly. Barnes recalled two agency clients who, at 55 and 56, “were first-time homebuyers. This had been their dream, something they never thought they could achieve.”The process can take up to three years, and Jericho Road currently has 110 potential homeowners, including teachers, postal employees, tourism industry and municipal workers, and others who are routinely priced out of the housing market.“Our housing crisis, in terms of affordability, has put pressure on folks who traditionally would have been great candidates for homeownership … [but who] pay 30-50% of their income just toward their housing costs,” Barnes said.“When you talk about affordable housing, people have a tendency to think about it as ‘those poor people.’ That’s not the situation. The families that we help don’t make a whole lot of money. They work full-time jobs every day. Some have multiple jobs. There are multiple generations like this in a city where housing is not affordable.”As post-Katrina public subsidies have dwindled, the agency has devised creative methods to navigate the shortfall. For example, local costs of land acquisition and new home construction can average about $230,000, nearly twice the qualifying mortgage amount for first-time low- to moderate-income homebuyers.Through a reclamation project, Jericho Road purchases U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development homes at a discounted rate and uses its construction crew to renovate them, getting clients into homes without their “needing multiple layers of assistance.” HUD homes are foreclosed properties that were originally purchased with Federal Housing Administration loans. Residential properties become HUD homes when homeowners are unable to keep up with their monthly mortgage payments and defaults on their loans.Additionally, Jericho Road “has experimented with selling some market-rate homes — one, actually — so we can use the proceeds to help subsidize affordable homeownership,” Barnes said. In addition to its original Central City neighborhood, the agency now serves the nearby Gentilly, Algiers and Seventh Ward areas and has launched owner-occupied rehabilitation programs. Jericho Road has also ventured into the senior residence rental market.But Jericho Road’s work “doesn’t end at the closing table,” Barnes said. “We developed post-purchase programs with families after we started to see that they needed resources to help acclimate them to homeownership.” More than 100 clients have received financial coaching to help close the racial wealth gap and foster financial mobility.Partnerships with local community colleges and carpenter unions provide valuable training and certifications, as well as employment for residents through a workforce development program.“We’re not just building homes, we are building communities,” Barnes said. “It’s not just sticks and bricks. We have to do all these other things to create a neighborhood that’s thriving.”New Orleans is still in a delicate place 15 years after Katrina, said Stewart, whose original home was three blocks from Christ Church Cathedral in Central City. “Some neighborhoods are back in full bloom and thriving. But others have been carved out, suppressed. Some areas of the city just became desolate and are still like a ghost town.”Yet Jericho Road “has sparked an evolution” in Central City, said Stewart, a former board member. “At the time that Jericho Road started building homes in Central City, the Census tract was one of the worst in the city. The investment they made, to construct new homes and bring families in, has drastically increased the property value and has given the neighborhood a sense of ability and purpose.”Evelyn Carlton remembers when Central City was “an area where you roll up your windows, lock your doors and hit the gas to get through real quick.”Now the once-blighted area is home to Carlton, a formerly homeless veteran. “I like the fact that families live here,” she told Jericho Road staffers in a previous interview. “People have a vested interest in what happens in this neighborhood.“And I have the house that I absolutely adore and love. Sometimes, doing some of the work is hard, but it’s my house,” she said. “There is so much pride I get from that … saying it is my house!”For Carlton and many Jericho Road families, “homeownership was never something they thought attainable,” Barnes said. “But this is their ‘forever and ever amen’ home, a way to create generational wealth to pass on to their children.“They are resilient. They are doing whatever it takes to keep their homes. Right now, in the pandemic, we want to make sure our families are positioned to do whatever they need to do to maintain their homes at a crucial time. Housing is even more important at this point.”– The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for Episcopal News Service based in Los Angeles, California.

Jaque Fourie and Quade Cooper both suspended for dangerous tackles

By

first_imgSunday Jul 25, 2010 Jaque Fourie and Quade Cooper both suspended for dangerous tackles Jaque Fourie and Quade Cooper have both been suspended following dangerous tackles they made during the Wallabies successful start to the Tri Nations campaign in Brisbane yesterday. It was a repeat of the previous two matches for the Springboks as they once again had a player sent from the field within the first few minutes of a Test match. This time it was center Fourie for his lifting tackle on Richard Brown. Upon recommendation from the touch judge, referee George Clancy yellow carded him. In staying consistent, Clancy carded Wallaby flyhalf Cooper for a similar offence in the second half. While both spent their ten minutes in the bin, that apparently wasnt enough as they were both cited, and have subsequently been suspended. Cooper received two weeks for his tackle, while Fourie was given four for his. Both tackles weren’t malicious and yellow cards seemed sufficient. Last week Jean De Villiers was handed a two week suspension for a tackle that was similar in nature to both of these. He wasnt yellow carded during the match though. The disparity in the sentencing is most likely to be because of the upcoming fixtures. So to look at it differently, Cooper got a two match ban, while Fourie got a three match ban. Both players were found guilty of breaching Law 10.4 (j), but the tackles were considered at the lower end of severity. An entry point for a low grade lifting tackle is three matches. Coopers clean record played in his favour, while Fourie was suspended last year for a similar offence on Maa Nonu, for which he was suspended. What do you think of the rulings?

The existing attic space layout of a terrace house from the 1930s was not suitable for the owner’s new requirements. We opted for a radical solution to improve the functional arrangement of the attic space and to significantly increase the total area of the flat. A new mass with a platform roof extending beyond the floor plan of the building was attached to the existing roof truss. The new mass of the facia is also reflected in the interior, including the porthole created in response to the vertical layout of the interior. The large view of the porthole faces north towards Prague. Roof lights situated above the dining and coffee tables deliver light to the living area from the southern side. White surfaces with an oak floor were preserved in the old section of the attic. The new facia is constructed of OSB slabs and covered with titanium and zinc sheet metal on the outside. Newly introduced elements, such as the bathroom, toilet, kitchen and some furniture are distinguished from the original space by their colour.Project gallerySee allShow lessAtlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial Design CompetitionArticlesAutodesk Launches Online Game on Green BuildingArticlesProject locationAddress:Prague, Czech RepublicLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgHome News Feed Anti-Farm Videotaping Bill Gets Edited by Committee Kraft admits some of the teeth have been taken out of the legislation, but overall it still protects Indiana farmers from exploitation by the media and activists, “At the end of the day, we are still confident we will have a bill that provides additional protection for Indiana agriculture from those who slip onto farms surreptitiously for the purpose of defaming or harming the operation.” Kraft suspects that when the measure goes to conference some of the teeth that have been taken out of the bill may be put back.

SHARE Facebook Twitter Anti-Farm Videotaping Bill Get Edited by CommitteeSB373, which would protect farming operations from unauthorized photography or videotaping, went before the House Judiciary Committee on Monday. Bob Kraft with IFB says the bill underwent some major editing, “The bill now no longer even mentions videotaping, it is really a trespass bill.”  He told HAT the bill strengths Indiana trespass laws to unquestionably criminal trespass if you go into an area on private property that is clearly marked and delineated as an area where you should not be. That delineation can be something as simple as a fence or a wall.  Media organizations had requested the judiciary committee review the bill since they claimed it violated their first amendment rights. Anti-Farm Videotaping Bill Gets Edited by Committee Facebook Twitter The Committee did pass the bill and left in place language, inserted by the House Ag Committee, that makes those who falsify job applications in order to obtain employment on a farm for the purpose of photographing or videotaping that farm eligible for prosecution. “For example, if you are an undercover reporter or activist and misrepresent yourself in order to get a job on a farm so you can take videos, you can be prosecuted under this law,” said Kraft. The bill will now be voted on by the full House and, according to Kraft, is likely will pass. It will then go to a House/Senate conference committee.
