Looking for an independent voice on Glencore

first_img 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 center_img KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Edinburgh aim for fabulous finish in Treviso

first_imgBATH, ENGLAND – DECEMBER 13: Edinburgh centre Nick De Luca looks on dejectedly on the final whistle of the Heineken Cup Pool 5 match between Bath and Edinburgh at the Recreation Ground on December 13, 2009 in Cardiff, Wales. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) Nick De Luca will play at no.13Edinburgh interim head coach Nick Scrivener has called on his team to cap their strong conclusion to the Magners League season by beating Benetton Treviso at the Stadio di Monigo on Friday night (kick-off 8.05pm local time (7.05pm BST).The match is the club’s final outing of the campaign, and will see them attempt to earn a second straight victory on Italian soil, having beaten Aironi 10-9 in Viadana last October. Edinburgh will also be on the trail of a fourth win in their last five matches, Ospreys, Aironi and Dragons having all been felled at Murrayfield of late.Friday’s clash is a last match in charge for Scrivener, who will return to his native Australia next week, for Scott MacLeod, who starts at second row before completing his move to Japanese outfit Kobe Steelers, and for David Blair, who is leaving the club at the end of the season.Far from focussing on sentiment, Scrivener believes that securing another success would be the most appropriate way for all concerned to sign off. He said: “I’ve no doubt there will be a bit of emotion floating about after the game, but our main concern will be making sure that we’ve at least got the satisfaction of reflecting on a win.“We’ve underlined all along the importance of finishing the season in a positive manner, and with the last few wins we’ve recorded, we’ve gone some way to doing that. It’s now about finishing the job and doing something that we haven’t been particularly good at this season – winning away from home.”There are three changes to the Edinburgh starting line-up from that which claimed a 27-15 triumph against Dragons on Friday 22 April. James King, who missed out on selection for that game after injuring a shoulder, returns at inside centre, with Nick De Luca moving out one to occupy the No.13 berth. Mike Blair injured an ankle in training this week, and so Greig Laidlaw moves to scrum-half with David Blair coming in at stand-off.In the boiler house, meanwhile, Esteban Lozada is suspended after receiving his third Magners League yellow card, and so Steven Turnbull is selected to pack down beside MacLeod. On the bench, David Young and Craig Hamilton return to provide cover at tight-head and lock respectively, while Alan MacDonald has recovered from his own shoulder complaint to feature for the first time since the defeat to Scarlets in February.Scrivener confirmed: “We performed pretty well across the board in the Dragons game, so it’s right and proper that we retain the vast majority of the side for this match. I thought that JT [Jim Thompson] and Nick teamed up nicely in the centres against Dragons, but James King had been on a really good run going into that game, and only missed out because he failed a fitness test late on. Not available due to injury: Alex Blair (back), Mike Blair (ankle), Chris Bloomfield (ACL), Fraser Brown (neck), Ben Cairns (shoulder), Jack Gilding (A/C), Phil Godman (knee), Roddy Grant (knee), John Houston (knee), Gregor Hunter (groin), Mark Robertson (groin), Ross Samson (calf), Netani Talei (wrist). “I’m pleased to be able to give him another go this week, and with JT on the bench chomping at the bit to get on, it’s quite a good position to be in. We’ll need a huge effort from the pack over in Italy, because whenever Treviso are placed under any sort of duress, they go back to their main strength, which is certainly their set-piece. Ours was better against Dragons, but it will need to go up a notch again to give us the right sort of platform to play off.“There are a good number of Edinburgh fans heading over to the game, and we want to give them a performance and result that makes the trip worthwhile.“On a personal note, I’d like to thank all the players, management and supporters I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my time at Edinburgh. It’s been a hugely enjoyable couple of years, and I look forward to following the club’s progress from afar.”Edinburgh starting XV: 15 Chris Paterson14 Simon Webster13 Nick De Luca12 James King11 Tim Visser10 David Blair9 Greig Laidlaw1 Kyle Traynor2 Andrew Kelly (C)3 Geoff Cross4 Scott MacLeod5 Steven Turnbull6 Stuart McInally7 Ross Rennie8 David DentonReplacements:16 Alun Walker17 Lewis Niven18 David Young19 Craig Hamilton20 Alan MacDonald21 Jim Thompson22 Lee Jones23 Tom Brown LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Herald return of the Anglo-Welsh Cup

first_imgThe competition has a rich and proud history so thank goodness it’s back Holders: Maro Itoje lifts the trophy for Saracens after their win in 2015 (Pic: Action Images) Most of us were so wrapped up in the World Cup last autumn that the absence of the Anglo-Welsh Cup barely registered. Yet the decision not to play this long-running competition – in its original guise, it predates the World Cup and official leagues by 16 years – was a crying shame.Of course it was inevitable, with so much rugby to be squeezed into the calendar, but the competition is responsible for some of the greatest moments and memories in the English game.Back in the Seventies, the cup final at Twickenham was one of the highlights of the sporting year, and I remember Gosforth’s back-to-back triumphs, Leicester’s hat-trick under Chalkie White and the remarkable Bath dominance that stretched from 1984 to the pro era because I was there for each and every one.You never wanted to miss the cup final and for a long time the world record attendance for a club game was the 59,300 that watched Bath beat Leicester in 1989.Maiden success: Sarries chairman Nigel Wray savours his club’s 1998 Tetley’s Bitter win (Pic: Offside)Sponsors came and went but the competition stood resolute. Saracens gave Nigel Wray a first trophy in 1998, Newcastle won high-scoring humdingers in 2001 and 2004, and London Irish had Twickenham’s bars reverberating to The Fields of Athenry in 2002.The cutting-off of amateur clubs was a sad day but had to happen for safety reasons, and in 2005-06 the Welsh regions joined in and it became the Anglo-Welsh entity we know today.Previous winners (since addition of Welsh regions) 2015 Saracens 23 Exeter 20 2014 Exeter 15 Northampton 8 2013 Harlequins 32 Sale 14 2012 Leicester 26 Northampton 14 2011 Gloucester 34 Newcastle 7 2010 Northampton 30 Gloucester 24 2009 Cardiff 50 Northampton 12 2008 Ospreys 23 Leicester 6 2007 Leicester 41 Ospreys 35 2006 London Wasps 26 Llanelli Scarlets 10Cup final attendances remained at over 70,000 well into the Noughties but the 2009 final, when the great Bleddyn Williams, a few months before his death, watched Cardiff Blues thrash Gloucester from the press box, was the last played at HQ.The Anglo-Welsh Cup was devalued by such a move but that’s not to belittle it. According to Premiership Rugby, no fewer than 169 current Premiership players made their club debuts in the cup and its worth as a development tool is undisputed.One of those 169 was Quins flanker Luke Wallace, who says: “The Anglo-Welsh Cup was my first game for Harlequins, against London Irish back in my first season with the club. I hadn’t been involved in the first team until that point, so it was a great experience and a great way to develop my game at that early stage.Stepping stone: Quins’ Luke Wallace is one of many who made their club debut in the competition“The tournament gives young guys the chance to play against top-quality opposition. When we won the tournament in 2013, we played against a full-strength Bath and Sale side. That was a building block for where I am now.”Maro Itoje was seen as a highly promising youngster when he led Saracens to the cup in 2015 and now he’s a world-class operator – things can happen quickly when you’re given an opportunity.Sale will give rugby league convert Josh Charnley a union debut tonight as the Sharks host Wasps, and who’s to say he won’t follow in the footsteps of Jason Robinson, who made his Sale debut in a fourth-round cup tie against Coventry one day shy of 16 years ago.Charnley, who scored 165 tries in 176 appearances for Wigan Warriors, has only been training with his new Premiership team-mates for two weeks and is on the bench tonight.

Sale signing: Josh Charnley celebrates scoring in the 2016 Super League Grand Final (Pic: Reuters)“I’d rather be out there and learning it and get chucked straight in the deep end and learn from my mistakes,” says the 25-year-old.“I’m always asking the lads what position I should be in and where I’m at. It’s going to take time, it’s like any job you’re new to.“If you’re a right-winger in league you stay on the right side, you don’t really tend to go across. But in union you’re always moving. It’s just picking up where to be in the right time. It’s totally different, it’s a different ball game.”Sale are one of only two current Premiership clubs never to have won the cup in its 45-year history and the other, Worcester Warriors, find themselves facing a potentially dangerous animal in Bristol, who will be under Mark Tainton’s management after the decision to suspend Andy Robinson because of poor results.“Fantastic coach”: Andy Robinson, suspended by Bristol, lifts the 1992 Pilkington Cup (Pic: Offside)“I know Andy well, he was my coach at Edinburgh,” says Worcester defence coach Simon Cross, who is taking charge of the team for their cup campaign. “He’s a fantastic coach and I feel very sorry that he’s been suspended.“Bristol are always dangerous opponents, every game we play against them is tough. But it’s a pretty serious squad we’ve picked. Chris Pennell and Dewald Potgieter are senior players back from injury and there are a number of young guys in the side.“Josh Adams deserves another chance to impress on the wing, Jack Singleton has been going very well at hooker, and I’m looking forward to seeing what (second-row) Andrew Kitchener has to offer. It’s a great mix and it should be an exciting game.”Young talent: Worcester wing Josh Adams gets another chance to shine tonight (Pic: Getty Images)Singleton scored four tries for England U20 against Italy this year and he, Kitchener and flanker Huw Taylor – also on duty tonight – played in the team that won the World Championship final in June. Worcester give a debut to Aussie scrum-half Michael Dowsett, who arrived in England last Saturday and has trained and attended all this week’s meetings – “He just about stayed awake with the jet lag!” says Cross.Gloucester, the inaugural winners in 1972, will wear a special shirt featuring a poppy design to mark Remembrance Day for their matches this and next weekend, against Saracens and Northampton.The shirt is available as a limited-edition purchase (click here) and £5 from each purchase will be donated to the Royal British Legion. Gloucester believe they’re the first rugby union club to partner with the Royal British Legion in this way.Pressure on: Gloucester have struggled this term, losing at Saints last weekend (Pic: Action Images)There will be increased TV exposure for the Anglo-Welsh Cup this season after BT Sport took up the rights. The first-round games at Bath and Quins will be shown live, and there will be a highlights programme on ITV on Sunday evening.For those unfamiliar with the competition, each team plays four matches against sides from other pools while competing for points in their own pool. The pool winners advance to the semi-finals, with the final taking place at The Stoop on Sunday 19 March. The Welsh clubs are in Pro12 action this weekend so make their entrance next week.

Archaeological work allowed to identify the part of this wall that features three distinct stages of construction / reconstruction.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGThe earliest construction stage of the wall includes mud and stone, comprising the entire inner structure. On the exterior of the wall, two phases of reconstruction with stones are still visible. Inside the property, the old structure has approximate dimensions of 2.4 m wide by 9.2 m long. The excavated area has a width of about 2 m. Its height ranges between 1.20 m and 1 meter.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGThe design consisted of leaving the portion of the wall exposed under the upper floors of the building, framed by a garden / courtyard and a mitered glass mounted parallel to the wall, which is simultaneously the outer wall of a room.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGAbstract from descriptive text:”The urban fabric of Cancela Velha and its building are characterized by a visual unit that is fundamentally determined by the chromatic and texture unity, derived from construction techniques and materials used in the construction of this structure.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGIn contrast, volumes and alignments observed in the built structure, the spatial structure of public space and the elements that define the division of property and the urban limits – the case of the walls – is quite diverse, as is usual in groups of the same genesis and characteristics.Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan.

It should be noted in this regard that the walls of the neighboring buildings located to the east are remarkably exposed, which gives them a great visual prominence, so the altimeter interruption that is created by the wall proposed in this project mitigates the extent and reinforces the balance with the visible houses to the north. “Project gallerySee allShow lessHaus Fontanella / Bernardo Bader ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCETICOM Jaén / ER Arquitectos + non ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily “COPY” Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SG+ 21 Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/468493/house-in-cacela-velha-victor-neves Clipboard CopyAbout this officeVictor NevesOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCacela VelhaCasasHabitaçãoFernando GuerraFG+SGPortugalPublished on January 22, 2014Cite: “House in Cacela Velha / Victor Neves” [Casa unifamiliar em Cacela Velha / Victor Neves] 22 Jan 2014.

Asked about the possibility of Internet cuts like those that occurred in August 2016, during protests against the arrest of an anti-government activist, Touré said there was “no plan to cut social networks during the election.” Mali is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.
