Sanofi could raise Genzyme bid if firms open negotiations

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content Sanofi could raise Genzyme bid if firms open negotiations Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img Sunday 5 September 2010 10:30 pm FRENCH pharmaceuticals giant Sanofi-Aventis would be prepared to moderately raise its $69-per-share (£44.7) offer for Genzyme if the US biotech firm agreed to enter negotiations, it emerged yesterday.It is understood that the Sanofi board has agreed that in principle the offer could be raised, but is waiting on a signal from Genzyme that the company is prepared to come to the negotiating table.The news comes after Genzyme last week rejected an all-cash $18.5bn offer from Sanofi.The US firm’s chief executive Henri Termeer said he did not believe it likely that the situation would turn hostile, but added that “a deal will only get done when the strategic value of the company is properly recognised”.Analysts believe that a sweetened offer of around $75-$78 per share would be favourably looked upon by the Genzyme board.Genzyme’s appeal lies in the growth potential of its drugs treating rare genetic diseases and a pipeline of new treatments, including one for multiple sclerosis. However, the complexity of the deal and the firm’s manufacturing problems mean negotiations could drag on. whatsapp More From Our Partners UK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatterUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndolast_img read more

Enter Your Email Address FTSE 100 oil giants BP (LSE:BP) and Shell (LSE:RDSB) made big announcements this week, ending a remarkable month of oil price volatility and headline news.BP made the far-reaching decision to increase its debt but continue paying a dividend to shareholders. Shell opted to cut its dividend by 66% to avoid the burden of further debt.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…This was a major decision by Shell and unexpected by many, myself included. Shell had enjoyed a perfect dividend-paying record for over 70 years!Are the days of ‘Big Oil’ investment numbered? With so much negativity already stacking up against the oil industry, the coronavirus pandemic and geopolitics have landed it in a precarious position. Environmental issues are of mounting concern, demand has come to a standstill, and storage options are running out.  Saudi Arabia and Russia began escalating their oil price war in March, kicking off the historical price slide. Meanwhile, geopolitical tensions are running high between the US and Iran. The pandemic has caused oil demand to halt, but this is an unnatural and unexpected pause in an otherwise demand-driven industry.Storage is a whole other matter. Where does the world store the millions of excess barrels of oil it has pumped out of the ground? Storage options are few and their scarcity has driven storage costs through the roof.I don’t know which company made the most sensible decision for the long term. For shareholders, dividends were the principal attraction to oil companies. BP and Shell also feature highly in equity income funds, precisely for this reason.Without dividends, you’re left investing in a company that’s increasingly unfavourable in its global position.For this reason, I think Shell will hurt from cancelling its dividend. However, if it pays down its debt and comes through the oil downturn positively, oil demand will return, and it can reinstate its dividend with confidence.The BP dividend gambleBP has possibly made the right decision for now. There are so many companies slashing dividends that income investors are running out of options. This could make BP attractive to some. However, saddling a company with even more debt when the outlook for the oil industry is so poor, is risky.Perhaps its thought process hinges on the fact interest rates are so low just now. Taking a loan could prove a better gamble than alienating shareholders. All very well if the oil price regains previous highs, and production can be ramped up again. Neither of which is certain.I think the demand for oil will increase again, but not in the near term. There is the surplus to get through first and in doing so, companies must restructure and streamline. There will no doubt be buyouts, bailouts, and bankruptcies along the way.I still think both BP and Shell will survive, but they could be quite different versions of themselves come time.If I were buying shares in either of them today, I would opt for BP. It seems to have a forward-thinking CEO; it takes investors’ interests into account and I think its firm stance on renewables will stand it in good stead going forward. If it can get through the production cuts, then I think its share price will recover the quickest.

I don’t care about Shell’s 5.8% dividend yields! I’d rather buy other UK shares in my ISA

I’d rather buy other UK shares in my ISA Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Royston Wildcenter_img Dividend cuts and stoppages have been coming thick and fast in 2020. And there are likely to be more coming down the tube before the year is out as UK shares’ profits suffer. For this reason I won’t be investing my hard-earned cash in Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) any time soon.Investors in the FTSE 100 fossil fuel giant haven’t had much to cheer about in 2020. The oilie’s share price has dropped 60% so far in 2020. But they’ve had a little good news to cheer on Thursday.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…Today the firm announced that adjusted earnings had risen in the third quarter, to £955m from £638 in Q2. It advised that it was taking steps to reduce net debt to £65bn from £73.5bn at the end of September. Once this goal is hit, Shell intends to distribute between 20% and 30% of cash flow from operations to its shareholders via a combination of share buybacks and dividends.In the meantime, Shell said that it would raise the third-quarter dividend 4% to 16.65 US cents per share. It comes as reassuring news after the firm cut dividends for the first time since the mid-1940s during the spring.Risky businessBut I worry that the decision to raise the dividend again could be a false dawn for embattled investors in this most battered of UK shares. There’s been a slew of worrying news about global production levels in recent days and weeks. And the signals surrounding much-needed output cuts from the OPEC+ group are fanning fears over a supply glut too.“There is no sign that OPEC+ is willing to cut deeper,” commodities analyst Bjarne Schieldrop of SEB commented today. “At most, it seems they are willing to extend current cuts to the first quarter of 2021 rather than to increase [them] by 1.9m barrels a day.”This is why Brent prices have descended again in recent days. Indeed, the benchmark’s just tipped to its cheapest since May around £37.30 a barrel. Things could get even bloodier too, should Covid-19 infection rates continue to climb and fresh lockdown measures transpire across the world in the weeks and months ahead. Shell could well find itself under pressure to take drastic dividend action yet again.As Schiekdrop added: “With no improving trend in implied demand — now down 2.3m barrels a day year-on-year… it could be a tough time for oil in the months ahead until a Covid-19 vaccine liberates markets.”Better UK sharesThis is why I’m happy to look past Shell’s 5.8% dividend yield for 2020. City analysts are expecting a significant reduction in the annual dividend this year. But I fear that the cuts could be gorier than even the most pessimistic brokers reckon.Investors like me also need to consider the prospect of much thinner dividends being shelled out in 2021 too. Why take a gamble on Shell when there are so many other great UK shares available for income chasers today? I won’t be buying this FTSE 100 oilie for my ISA.

Advertisement This survey follows the publication of a White Paper about telephone fundraising by Hugh McCaw, Chief Executive of Relationship Marketing, which set out the restrictions imposed upon charities by the Telephone Preference Service.McCaw said: “After the release of our White Paper, we were inundated with encouraging responses from the sector outlining their thoughts and feelings about the future of telephone fundraising. The level of interest has prompted us to take this next step in partnership with the Institute.“With this survey, we are hoping to capture the views of the fundraising community in quantifiable terms. The survey results will form the basis for how we go forward, ensuring sector views are considered and represented. I would urge all fundraisers to take part”.Lindsay Boswell, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, added: “This survey is going to help us determine if there is an appetite for change from amongst our membership when it comes to telephone fundraising and TPS regulations”.The survey is being distributed today to over 5,000 Individual members of the Institute directly. The closing date for the survey is 21st August 2009. Survey results will be analysed and published.All interested fundraisers are invited to take part in the online survey atwww.zoomerang.com/Survey/survey-intro.zgi?p=WEB229EJDY5U9BPhoto: Mrpattersonsir on Flickr.com Tagged with: Individual giving Institute of Fundraising Research / statistics Telephone fundraising Telephone Preference Servicelast_img read more

Cenozoic tectonic history, seismicity and palaeoseismicity of the Antarctic Peninsula Pacific margin

first_imgGlobal earthquake catalogues do not record any earthquakes south of Bransfield Strait beneath the AntarcticPeninsula or its flanking continental shelves. Such low seismicity is consistent with neotectonic interpretations which show the area south of Bransfield Strait as part of the modern Antarctic plate. However, the magnitude distribution of earthquakes located in the wider region indicates that the threshold for location of events in this area was at least mb=4.5 before 1996. Plate tectonic reconstructions indicate that rapid subduction was taking place along the entire Pacific margin of the Antarctic Peninsula at the start of the Cenozoic era. By analogy with active subduction zones, and by reference to statistical relationships between seismicity parameters and other measurable parameters of modern subduction zones, it is inferred that this was an area of intense seismic activity at that time. On the same basis, wellconstrainedtectonic events affecting this margin imply that seismic activity decreased in stages during the Cenozoicera. Global catalogues list four earthquakes beneath the continental rise west of the Antarctic Peninsula. Theseoccurred in oceanic lithosphere 16–49 Ma in age and do not appear to be associated with oceanic fracture zones.Harvard CMT focal mechanisms for two of theselast_img read more
