AMONG all the many big beasts advising on the forthcoming flotation of commodities trader Glencore, one firm stands out in its unusualness and lack of big beastliness, and that is Liberum Capital.Liberum is an employee-owned investment bank whose Latin name means independent, whereas the rest of the advisers – including Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas, Barclays Capital, Societe Generale and UBS – are all the bulge bracket banks, who offer placing power, share distribution and underwriting services alongside their advisory capabilities.In a world where relationships are still all important, Liberum’s link to Glencore is Michael Rawlinson, a board director who heads the mining, resources and energy team. He joined from Cazenove after its merger with JP Morgan. There he had worked on the initial public offerings of BHP?Billiton, Xstrata, Vedanta and Anglo American.Rawlinson also worked on the flotation of the Russian aluminium group Rusal, where Glencore chief executive Ivan Glasenberg is a director, and with Vallar, the mining group run by Nathaniel Rothschild.As one adviser to the Glencore float put it: “Michael is a superb authority in the sector and he gives very straight advice.”Last July Liberum came up with a $60bn (£37bn) figure for Glencore’s valuation, which has since become a benchmark. As we wrote yesterday, analysts at Credit Suisse and Barclays Capital have now suggested that Glencore could be worth as much as £48bn (including new money raised).As yet, there is little research from analysts whose banks are not on the syndicate. But one industry afficionado who does have a view is Standard Bank’s mining analyst Peter Davey, who told me yesterday: “Glencore doesn’t deserve a premium rating.“I think it should price at a discount to the miners. With them, you have real tangible earnings whereas here, a lot of the money is earned by traders who own the company and might leave after a time.”With so little UK M&A happening at the moment, it looks likely that this Glencore flotation will dominate much of the discussion in the City over the next few weeks and there will be a heated debate over valuation (as well as the group’s corporate governance record), with some going for the £48bn or so figure and others, such as Davey, arguing for something closer to £35bn. It will be fascinating to see whether any of the syndicate member banks agree with Davey’s lower figure.Just don’t hold your breath. whatsapp Monday 18 April 2011 8:37 pm Looking for an independent voice on Glencore whatsapp KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL

According to a report from the Hollywood-tracking news outlet The Wrap, Google’s YouTube will soon be expanding its on-demand movie rental service to include mainstream Holloywood films. Major movie studios including Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Brothers and Universal are all said to be on board, as are a number of independent studios.The sources cited by The Wrap are “movie executives with knowledge of the deals,” but YouTube itself said it would not comment on rumor and speculation.An Expanded StoreA YouTube spokesperson would only say this, when asked about the on-demand streaming service:“We’ve steadily been adding more and more titles since launching movies for rent on YouTube over a year ago, and now have thousands of titles available.”The spokesperson is referring to YouTube’s store, available here at: http://www.youtube.com/store. The service launched last year, offering movie rentals for $2 or $3 dollars apiece. The files are available for streaming, not download, similar to the videos provided by Netflix or Hulu’s streaming services.Currently, there are only a small number of well-known titles in the YouTube Store. These are prominently featured on the site’s homepage, making the service appear more well-stocked than it actually is. But dig a little deeper and you won’t find much more to choose from, unless you like really B-to-D grade films and direct-to-video offerings. Launching in WeeksThe upcoming deal, which has now been confirmed by AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka as well, would change that. He adds that while Sharon Waxman’s report from The Wrap pinned the launch date as being “as early as next week or next,” he heard that the time frame was “weeks, but not months.”Those not participating in the current deal, Kaftka notes, are New’s Corp.’s Fox and Paramount, whose corporate parent Viacom is still suing Google regarding YouTube copyright issues and claims.Cloud Locker PlannedKafka also cited one source who said that this on-demand movie rental service was just the beginning for Google’s vision. In the future, Google wants users to be able to purchase movies and store them in an online cloud locker, a service that sounds strikingly familiar to the one Amazon itself just launched.But even if the service does launch as expected, the question many in the media are now asking is whether or not the business model is viable. Netflix, which offers streaming movies, not rentals and purchases, is booming, having nearly doubled its net quarterly profits from last year. It also added 3.3 million subscribers in Q1 2011. Would streaming individual rentals and purchases attract a large enough audience to make the expanded YouTube service a success? Or will consumers still choose Netflix instead?

Linkedin by Marie Hobbins and John O’ShaughnessyTHE Football Association of Ireland, under the stewardship of CEO John Delaney, has expressed a willingness to negotiate a deal to secure the Markets Field, after the Irish Greyhound Board vacate the property in 2010.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It could signal the return of League of Ireland football to the venue, with ‘homeless’ Limerick FC, in an agreement with the FAI, reclaiming it as their home.Several city councillors are keeping a watchful eye on developments, mindful, in the words of Kieran O’Hanlon, that they sold it for a song to Bord na gCon, a few years ago.Mr Delaney, who was a regular at greyhound meetings at the Markets Field with his father Joe Delaney, is determined that Limerick FC should become a force in Irish football and sees the Markets Field as another phase in their development.The then Limerick United vacated the Markets Field in 1984, to move to Hogan Park, Rathbane. They are now tenants of the Limerick District Management Committee, at Jackman Park.It is understood that Mr Delaney, together with Limerick FC owner Jack McCarthy, has entered into talks with Bord na gCon about a possible purchase.Work on the new greyhound stadium at Greenpark is expected to get underway in March, but whether it will be affected by the downturn in the economy, is a matter of conjecture. Limerick has been battling for well over a decade to acquire a new stadium. When asked if there was a possibility that commencement work at Greenpark might now be delayed, a spokesperson for the board asked that the request for information be put in writing.The most recent Bord n gCon report showed that losses of 245,000 euro were sustained at the Markets Field in 2007.Residents in the Garryowen area are also anxious to have the future of the Markets Field protected and secured, rather than it being sold for development purposes. Said Clr O’Hanlon:“Local people here would like to have a community centre and there’s interest in developing further educational facilities in there by the VEC.“We must have a meeting on this and produce some planning for a civic amenity there. We could find the money from various sources – there’s Lottery money, council funding and a private developer, as well as the FAI”.
