CSR in $67.5m Broadcomm settlement

By

first_img CSR in $67.5m Broadcomm settlement KCS-content CHIPMAKER CSR said yesterday it had settled its legal battle over technology patents with US rival Broadcom, boosting the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi specialist’s shares.CSR said it would pay $67.5m (£43.2m) to Broadcom over the next five years, the majority of which would be offset by a reduction in legal costs of at least $50m, to settle the dispute, which predates its acquisition of GPS chip firm SiRF in 2009.Shares in CSR rose 15.56 per cent on the news to close at 413p, as analysts welcomed the settlement.“We believe this is a very solid result for CSR from a strategic perspective as it removes the overhang of litigation and fears from some market participants of a big negative charge,” UBS said in a note.Analysts at Espirito Santo Investment Bank said that due to CSR’s reporting structure it should result in about 10 per cent upgrades to consensus operating profit and earnings per share estimates for 2011.“Apart from the financial impact, the settlement of patent dispute with Broadcom should remove a distraction for CSR’s management and customers,” they said.The dispute related to accusations of patent infringement on components for TomTom GPS systems, which originated between SiRF and Global Locate, which is now owned by Broadcom. Most recently CSR claimed that Broadcom was using technology that it had invented in its range of chips for mobile phones and media players.As part of the settlement agreement, both parties have agreed not to pursue any further infringement actions against each other over the next five years.CSR will pay an initial sum of $5m plus $12.5m for the next five years, but save legal costs of $10m a year.

When I think of Aston Martin (LSE:AML), I think of James Bond and all the swagger that comes along with the famous movie franchise. The luxury sports manufacturer’s investment prospects haven’t filled me with the same delight, however. The company has recently been taken over, and the share price rallied in the last month. At such a low price point and given the takeover is it worth investing in right now?Aston Martin share price woesAML floated on the stock market in September 2018 to much fanfare. There is a general consensus that prestigious brands tend to fare well across world markets. British luxury brands have a history of doing well in Asia where demand is high. The shares were priced at £19 in the initial public offering (IPO). The opening day was a sign of things to come as the price began to decline and has dwindled badly since.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Since the floatation, the Aston Martin share price is down approximately 95%, which is staggering. Right now I can buy shares for just 80p per share. Things were even worse prior to the Covid-19 vaccine news and this latest rally. I could buy shares for less than 50p. This wasn’t as bad as May when AML’s share price reached a lowly 30p.What is happening at AML?It would be easy to point fingers towards the global pandemic and the market crash for AML’s fortunes. Unfortunately there are much deeper rooted issues and have been for some time. Let’s not forget that AML has gone bankrupt SEVEN times in the past.It seems that AML was not selling as many cars as expected by management. It could be argued that sales and growth targets were overly optimistic. AML has a history of huge financial losses, which made its balance sheet a difficult read. Cash generation is poor and debt levels continue to rise which is worrying as a potential investor. There was even an accounting error last year which inaccurately boosted profitability. This was eventually corrected. First-half figures for 2020 showed losses of £227m. A rescue deal was put together this past summer and this could mean the start of a potential recovery in my opinion. The deal consisted of a financial bailout and major restructuring. This as well as the vaccine will have contributed to the rise in the Aston Martin share price, in my opinion. Along with new management, there seems to be a refined business model, realistic ambitions and a leaner organisation. I believe this will benefit AML in the longer term.What I’m doing nowWith investor sentiment increasing generally and AML’s most recent bailout I do see the Aston Martin share price faring better in the shorter term. But does that mean I am willing to invest my hard-earned money? The short answer is no.With its history, financial mismanagement, in the past and current alarming debt situation I am not willing to invest my money in Aston Martin shares. There is too much risk involved for my liking. If I wanted less risk with a better prospect of making money, I would buy this stock instead.  Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img The Aston Martin share price is up 50% in the past month!

The name Corra comes from Scottish mythology and relates to ideas of knowledge and change.The new name and logo have been chosen to connect with the foundation’s roots in the savings bank movement with the branding using the colours of the modern Duncan tartan in honour of the Reverend Henry Duncan who established the Trustee Savings Bank (TSB) movement in 1810. The foundation also has a grants programme named after him.With the rebranding, the Corra Foundation has also introduced its strategy for 2017-19: Change for Good. Under this and during this time, it will continue to distribute around £7m via Henry Duncan Grants, which support grassroots charities operating in Scotland, and PDI, which supports work with vulnerable children and young people affected by substance issues. In addition, it will further explore matched funding and continuation funding, continue to develop People in Place, and to offer services through its social enterprise Fortify CIC.On the launch, Fiona Duncan, Chief Executive of the Corra Foundation, said:“Our new strategy responds to the times we are in – times of challenge and opportunity. It’s rooted in where we’ve come from. It’s the next step forward from where we are.“In 2014 we set out a three-year strategy focused on: being the best grant maker we can be; reaching communities that we historically have not; and supporting other funders. I believe there’s significant continuing value in that direction of travel. But it’s time to take off the limitations, to be bolder.“Today we are publishing the next iteration of our strategy, Change for Good. It’s informed by our learning and reflection from the last three years and it makes partnership an underpinning principle of the way we will work. We will move forward towards 2019 with an explicit focus on making a bigger difference for, and with, people by working together with others.”  189 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 30 August 2017 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

A critic of Islam and the Iraniangovernment, Tagi wrote for the newspaper Sanat.“We offer our full support to Tagi’s family and colleagues,” Reporters Without Borderssaid. “Given his recent articles and the judicial proceedings brought against him in past, we urgethe investigators to seriously consider the possibility that the attack was linked to his work as ajournalist.”Tagi’s attacker stabbed him three times in the back and three more times in the abdomen,piercing the diaphragm, before making off. Although he was bleeding heavily, the 64-year-oldjournalist managed to reach his home and call an ambulance. He underwent two operationsbefore dying of his injuries in hospital today.In an article he wrote for a local website on 10 November, Tagi criticised the government ofneighbouring Iran and accused its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, of discrediting Islam andposing a threat to the civilized world.The attorney general and interior ministry have been put in charge of the investigation into the19 November attack.

Ten days after the article was published, an Iranian cleric issueda fatwa calling for his death.
