  • Lloyds launches a thirty-year sterling bond

    first_imgWednesday 15 September 2010 8:42 pm Share Show Comments ▼ LLOYDS Banking Group launched a rare 30-year senior sterling bond yesterday, capitalising on the upbeat tone of the credit markets and on demand from pension funds and insurers for long-dated sterling assets.The bond deal is the bank’s first ever sterling issue with a 30-year maturity, an official with the bank said.Initial guidance on the bond was at UK gilts plus around 250 basis points.“There is natural demand from UK pension funds and insurers because they have long-duration liabilities such as annuities,” said one financial sector analyst at a UK-based asset manager.Lloyds has done relatively few senior bond deals this year, but this month has joined in a rush by European banks to raise cash via the bond markets. Banks have seized the chance to tap cash-rich investors and take advantage of positive sentiment towards credit versus equities due to fears of a fresh economic slowdown.At the start of September, for example, Lloyds raised £1.04bn with a five year senior bond at a spread of 200 basis points over mid-swaps.The managing banks on the 30-year deal are Lloyds, Barclays and HSB.

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Applegreen, ASOS, boohoo group, and Fevertree Drinks. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Applegreen (LSE:APGN) share price jumped a massive 40% in a day on Thursday. The AIM-listed firm added a whopping £176m to its market cap inside 24 hours. And it all came down to one juicy detail that had shareholders grinning.In early trading on 10 December, the Applegreen share price soared to a two-year high of 505p. In fact, it was the biggest gainer across the entire AIM index. The last time shares were this valuable was pre-pandemic, in early February 2019. 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…The Irish petrol forecourt retail operator is one of the 100 largest companies listed on the UK AIM market. This is the smaller cousin of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. The company sits alongside the likes of Boohoo, ASOS, and Fevertree, but is perhaps not a household name. One of the most recognisable retail brands owned by Applegreen is Welcome Break. It is Ireland’s largest and the UK’s second-largest motorway service area operator.Luck of the IrishSo why did the Applegreen share price spike so much? In a regulatory news update to the London market on the morning of 10 December, Applegreen said it had received a takeover offer of €5.75 per share.Applegreen said it was in “advanced discussions” with a consortium of companies including 41% owner B&J Holdings Limited. Because B&J already own such a large stake in the company, it is seen as more likely to go through with the takeover bid. That is, compared to an outside company with no current shareholding.  The takeover price represents a 48% premium above to the Applegreen share price at the close of play on 9 December. The board of directors said it would recommend shareholders take the cash offer if it materialised.  “[It] would represent a compelling opportunity for shareholders in Applegreen to realise their investment at an attractive premium to the prevailing share price,” they said.Taking overTakeovers can mean big profits for shareholders. That’s especially true if the buyer offers a premium for the company’s shares. It means instant profit, basically. So the Applegreen share price stabilised 146p higher than it was the previous day. A couple of months back, City broker Berenberg slashed its price target for Applegreen from 630p to 450p. Analysts said the operator was “better placed” than most other companies that rely on large amounts of travel for their sales and profits. But it noted that there had been a “significant hit” to the volume of traffic on the roads, which hurt earnings in the first half of the year. The amount of debt the business is carrying was also a concern for the equity researchers. Thursday’s Applegreen share price of 505p (£5.05) matches the €5.75 offered by the buyer, after taking into account the 1.1 times conversion from pounds to euros. Applegreen share price futureApplegreen bosses have been taking advantage of cheap interest rates to use loans to expand quickly into new markets. Its shops on British petrol station forecourts are its main business.But since 2017 the firm has been expanding into the US. This expansion strategy started on the east coast. It continued with a 10-year leasehold deal for 46 midwest petrol filling stations in mid-2019.Then in September this year, Applegreen announced it had won a 33-year lease to design and build 27 motorway service areas on New York’s longest toll road.

Jean Moulin Atelier – House is an 80m2 three-floor artist atelier located in the 14th district of Paris. The artist studio was built in the late ’40s of the 20th century. It is part of a subdivision plan of artists’ studios, laid out in two rows along a quiet and hidden private alley. Few original features were the main qualities of this space; a very large steel window fixture overlooking a private terrace, an old maple tree, a double-height space filled with natural light, and a skylight.Save this picture!© Lorenzo ZandriAtelier Jean Moulin was conceived as a house for a couple, an artist from Oregon, USA, and her husband working in the movie industry. Having lived in Paris for nearly a decade, they commissioned Nathalie Eldan from Atelier NEA to create an intimate space that reflects their personality and way of life – a place where domesticity and the make of art come together. Jean Moulin Atelier – House is the result of a beautiful collaboration with the owners while taking into consideration every single object and piece of art they owned.Save this picture!© Lorenzo ZandriThe main conceptual approach focused on adaptability and functionality which included almost two dozens of custom-made sycamore maple and steel built-in units. The project preserved the studio’s original typology while enhancing the layout by a total revolution of the two staircases’ positions. They have been moved from the back of the house to the up front, towards the mezzanine double-height space creating a permanent dialogue with the outdoors.Save this picture!© Lorenzo ZandriPrivate and shared needs are separated yet they remain both flexible and adaptable. The open-plan ground floor where the kitchen is located supports living without internal hierarchy. It can be used for multiple uses – as an artist studio area or as a living room.Save this picture!© Lorenzo ZandriAs we climb up the house, the floors become more private. The two upper floors accommodate two nooks, a bathroom, a laundry space, a walk-in closet, and a study area. The scale varies throughout the house. On The mezzanine floor, the nook enjoys a lower ceiling for more privacy and closer relation to the human body. This nook, combined with a walk-in closet, is dedicated to sleep and relaxation. It can be enclosed by 3 extra-large sliding doors made of solid sycamore wood and natural jute. An additional nook for guests is located on the upper floor. Both nooks are the only areas that can be considered private, creating an enclosure and distancing from the conventional room in a house.Save this picture!Floor plansAll jute sliding doors are custom-made. They work as visual screens yet they allow penetration of natural light and ventilation throughout the floors. All areas in the house, including the bathroom and the walk-in closet overlook the outdoors. The porous materials; woven jute for the doors and perforated steel sheet in the walk-in closet protect privacy while maintaining the relationship with the outside. A large interior window that overlooks the entire house was created on the second floor to gain additional natural light. The refurbishment project adopted sycamore maple wood as its principal material combined with steel, natural jute, waxed concrete, and Carrara marble.Save this picture!© Lorenzo ZandriAtelier NEA designed the built-ins in a way to reduce to a minimum the need for extra light furniture in this very compact atelier-house.

Other Vietnamese bloggers who have applied for refugee status in Bangkok say they think he was abducted while in a shopping mall in suburban Bangkok, according to Radio Free Asia, one of the media outlets for which Nhat works. “I think the prime minister wants Nhat arrested at all costs because he is in possession of compromising information about the prime minister’s clan in Quang Nam province,” Hieu wrote. Quang Nam province adjoins Danang, Nhat’s home town, where the blogger has many sources to help him with his investigative reporting.

We assumed that organisational questions were being sorted out.”Kolesov continued: “We were told we could go and have lunch at around 1:30, but before that, the clerk of the court came to see us several times and told us that there were a lot of journalists and that this might bother us. She said some of us would undoubtedly prefer not to see any cameras during the trial.“After that, the clerk of the court brought a document for us to sign, in which it was written that we were opposed to the presence of the press because we were afraid. No one signed it. We replied that we wanted to see how the hearing went first, that it should start with the press there. We would decide later whether to ask the journalists to leave the courtroom. We did not decide that the press should be excluded.” The jurors subsequently wrote a letter to the court saying that they “had made no statement during the trial and had only asked for a ban on filming with video cameras, but were not opposed to the print media attending the trial.”Kolesov has also, in his own name, prepared a statement to the court asking to be dropped from the jury because he does not want to be party to a rigged trial.The next hearing is set for 10 December.

  • Call for enquiry into road accident that killed opposition journalist

    first_img News February 5, 2021 Find out more to go further Organisation October 30, 2020 Find out more June 23, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for enquiry into road accident that killed opposition journalist Reporters Without Borders called today for an investigation of a road accident that eventually killed pro-opposition journalist Batyrkhan Darimbet, editor of the opposition weekly Azat, noting that others had died in similar circumstances in recent years. Darimbet died on 7 June, six days after receiving serious head injuries in a crash near the city, on the road to Almaty. “We are sceptical about this supposed accident,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said, “since several other opposition journalists have died this way in the past few years. We call on interior minister Zautbek Turisbekov to open an impartial enquiry into a possible murder. We shall monitor developments closely.”Darimbet, who also contributed to the radio station Azatyk, had been in Taraz to set up a local branch of DVK, an opposition group he set up after the banning of the Democratic Choice for Kazakhstan (DVK) party. A car crashed into his jeep late at night on 1 June near the village of Lugovoye and the jeep overturned. Darimbet, the only person hurt, was taken to hospital in Taraz. A similar accident occurred on the same road on 16 November 2002, killing another opposition journalist, Nuri Muftakh. Five opposition journalists have been killed in road accidents in Kazakhstan since 2002. Askhat Sharipzhanov, of the online newspaper Navigator (www.navi.kz), died in hospital in Almaty on 20 July last year, five days after being injured when a car crashed into him as he left his offices. The editor of an opposition weekly paper died in hospital on 7 June from injuries received in a mysterious road accident.
