Simon Murray (pictured) will be tasked with leading the firm’s up-to $11bn (£6.7bn) float, valuing it at about $60bn, the details of which were confirmed yesterday. The move heralded a return to the days when interesting and complex characters, rather than faceless executives, ran the City. Earlier this week, Murray said:?“This is very exciting, but you are talking to someone who has been chased by a leopard. You are talking to someone who has been shot at with a machine gun and missed.”Murray, whose tales of derring-do include carrying two severed heads in his backpack during his time in the French Foreign Legion, was born in Leicester in central England. As a teenager in 1960 he joined the Foreign Legion on a whim, going on to fight for five years in Algeria. He later wrote a bestseller, Legionnaire, about his time in north Africa.It was made into a film in 2002.Educated at Bedford School, one of England’s oldest public schools, Murray was turned down by the British Army before signing up with the Foreign Legion.“I think perhaps I was just a young buck without much confidence in himself setting an extreme challenge to see if he could hack it in a man’s world,” he says in his book.He has since run a 240km race in the Moroccan desert, climbed Mount Everest and become the oldest man to walk unsupported to the South Pole. Glencore unveiled its blockbuster initial public offering (IPO) to the market yesterday, following months of speculation. The Swiss-based firm, which markets and produces metals and other commodities, is seeking to raise between $6.8bn and $8.8bn in a London listing, making it the biggest float ever offered in the capital.A secondary share offer of approximately $2.2bn worth of existing stock in the company will be sold in Hong Kong. The deal will value Glencore at about $60bn, making it one of the top 20 London-listed firms by market capitalisation and sending it straight into the FTSE 100.It will be just the third firm to attain blue chip status on its first day of trading, following BT in 1984 and BG Group in 1986.The firm is aiming to complete its IPO in May, and will use $3.2bn of the proceeds to buy Kazakhstan mining group Kazzinc. It will also pay off debts and use the funds to provide working capital for the next three years.Senior management in the company, including chief executive Ivan Glasenberg, will become billionaires overnight, although they will be locked into shares for five years.Glasenberg, who owns a 15 per cent stake in the firm, will be made into one of the world’s richest men following the IPO.Almost 500 partners in the firm will also become millionaires in the deal, but will also be blocked from selling their shares immediately following the float.Former BP chief executive Tony Hayward will join Murray on the board as a senior independent director, as he begins to rebuild his business career after departing the oil giant amid the Gulf of Mexico oil spill crisis last year.

UKGC financial penalties surpass £18m in 2017-18

first_img The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has revealed it issued more than £18m (€20.1m/$23.6m) in fines to gambling companies during the past financial year. In its latest enforcement report, covering the period from May 2017 to April 2018, the national regulator said penalty packages were up by £1.6m on the previous year. The UKGC also featured various case studies and examples in the report where it has handed out fines to companies in an effort to encourage others to ensure that they do not also breach regulations. Examples include the record £7.8m fine that the UKGC issued to 888 Holdings after the regulator identified failings in its handling of vulnerable customers. Speaking in the introduction to the report, UKGC chief executive Neil McArthur said the aim of the regulator’s enforcement work is to “protect consumers and the wider public” as well as to “raise standards in the gambling industry”. McArthur said the UKGC will continue to take “targeted action” that drives a culture where operators act in a way that lowers the risk to licensing objectives and reduces gambling related harm. In addition, McArthur said the regulator is keen for likened operators to put the interests of consumers first, as well as be open and co-operative with the UKGC. McArthur added: “In my view, effective regulation requires a balance between deterrence and advice and guidance. “We want operators to pay attention to the lessons set out in this document; we want them to focus on ways to make gambling fairer and safer for consumers in Great Britain. “We also want operators to collaborate and invest the same amount of resource, technology and research into building better protections for consumers, as they do to creating new products, or advertising and marketing campaigns. “As a regulator, we will continue to set and enforce standards that the industry must comply with to protect consumers.”Related article: 888 fined £7.8m for failing to protect vulnerable customers Bingo Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has revealed it issued more than £18m (€20.1m/$23.6m) in fines to gambling companies during the past financial year Regions: UK & Ireland Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting Strategy Bingo Poker 29th June 2018 | By contenteditor UKGC financial penalties surpass £18m in 2017-18last_img read more

Certain Lotto NZ venues to reopen after Covid-19 closures

first_img Lotto New Zealand counters in dairies and convenience stores are being allowed to reopen after temporarily closing due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, but other stores will remain closed for the foreseeable future.Earlier this week, New Zealand’s government downgraded to Alert Level 3 of the coronavirus alert system, enabling some shops and venues to open. The country had been in a state of lockdown since Alert Level 4 was announced on 25 March.This resulted in the lottery suspending retail sales from 27 March, including Lotto NZ counters in pharmacies, dairies, petrol stations and supermarkets, though customers were still able to purchase tickets online.Lotto NZ will work with each individual store over the coming days, with the aim of reopening most approved locations by 2 May.However, all other stores such as supermarkets, pharmacies and petrol stations will not be able to reopen until Alert Level 2 comes into effect. The New Zealand government expects to downgrade to Alert Level 2 in two weeks’ time.“By safely re-opening some of our retail stores this week we can continue to generate funding for New Zealand communities, many of which will need it now more than ever,” Lotto NZ chief executive Chris Lyman said.“We have seen a big increase in customers purchasing their tickets online during the lockdown, which has been fantastic, but sales have decreased which ultimately means less community funding.“We’re really pleased to be able to re-open Lotto counters in some of our stores this week, giving our customers an option to buy their tickets in open stores if they wish.”Lyman added that stores will need to implement certain measures to protect both staff and customers during the next phase of the coronavirus alert system, or risk being closed down again.In addition, Lyman said consumers can wait to claim any prizes from physical tickets until a later date when the Alert Level is lowered again, while players can continue to purchase new tickets online.“We understand that some people will prefer to wait until the country is at lower alert levels before claiming their prize in-store,” he said. For those customers, we recommend they write their details on the ticket and put the ticket in a safe place – they will need the physical ticket to claim their prize when they are ready.“It may take a few days for the stores to get their Lotto counters back up and running, and in the meantime, customers can continue to purchase their tickets online at MyLotto.co.nz.“The most important thing is that we keep everyone safe during this time, which means following the government’s advice on Covid-19. Never has there been such an important time for Kiwis to help other Kiwis.”Alert Level 3 has also permitted businesses and stakeholders in the country’s thoroughbred and harness racing sectors to return to work. As announced by New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) last week, staff can now recommence trialling and training – subject to meeting strict protocols and guidance established by each code.

Florida school districts, parents seek sustained funding for online learning programs

first_img The Anatomy of Fear “We will have full parental choice,” Corcoran told the State Board of Education (BOE). “The governor will take nothing less than full parental choice.”Corcoran wouldn’t guarantee Wednesday whether full parental choice includes full funding for school districts’ virtual leaning programs, noting the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) is analyzing funding models “right now and working with the districts.”Corcoran’s order from July that mandated all schools reopen in August with “the full panoply” of in-person services expires next month.A revised order will be a “collaborative effort” and reflect “significant improvement based on our first 90, 100 days in school,” Corcoran told the BOE, suggesting it may be ready before Thanksgiving.Under the July order, the state fully funded online students at the same rate it does for those attending in-person classes, a temporary pandemic-induced policy change that some parents, educators and doctors feared would not be extended in Corcoran’s revised rules.Parents of about 40% of the state’s 2.8 million K-12 students have opted not to send their children into school, instead enrolling them in district-run online options in greater numbers than the FDOE’s Virtual School program.Nearly 22,000 COVID-19 cases related to Florida K-12 schools, colleges and universities since Sept. 6 were reported Saturday by the Florida Department of Health (FDOH).The FDOH’s update from Nov. 8-14 reported 3,146 new COVID-19 cases in Florida schools – 2,397 K-12 students, 209 teachers, 109 staff and 314 “other” cases; and 749 cases among students, teachers and staff at colleges and universities.The growing caseload in schools reflects the pandemic’s statewide intensification, with FDOH reporting 7,925 new COVID-19 cases Thursday, topping 905,000 cases in Florida since March.The FDOH also reported 88 deaths Thursday, bringing the number of fatalities attributed to the disease in Florida since March to 17,949.Corcoran told the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) in October his revised order would give parents online options while offering incentives for districts that enroll more students in face-to-face classes.“We’ve got to get those kids in the classrooms,” Corcoran said, calling online lessons “a tier-two education.”During Wednesday’s BOE meeting, board member Michael Olenick pressed Corcoran to assure families they’ll not be expected to send their children to brick-and-mortar classrooms in January.“I know people who have died from COVID. I know people who are sick from COVID,” Olenick said. “I think there is a fear with many students, faculty, parents. That fear is warranted.”Olenick agreed “the brick-and-mortar experience” is ideally best, but amid a pandemic and in a state where “school choice is the mantra,” parents should have educational options for their children.“That decision should be a parent’s decision,” he said.Families will have “full parental choice,” Corcoran said. “I can assure you, Mike, from the top down, that absolutely will happen.”The FADSS, Florida PTA and Florida Education Association (FEA), the state’s largest teachers union, have appealed to Corcoran and Gov. Ron DeSantis to extend full funding for online programs.“School districts need to know they’ll have the funds to operate without severe cuts. Parents who want their children to learn at home need to know that they’ll still have that option after Jan. 8 – in their own districts, with teachers they know and trust,” FEA President Andrew Spar said in a written statement.

She has won two national Mayborn School of Journalism Ten Spurs awards for nonfiction, and has penned pieces for Texas Monthly, Salon.com, Dallas Observer, Edible, and the Dallas Morning News, among others. The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago December 4, 2020 995 Views Industry Leaders Discuss GSE Privatization Related Articles The U.S. House Committee on Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters has been a staunch voice advocating on behalf of, in her words, “current homeowners, renters, potential owners, and more than 19 million prospective millennial homeowners.” To that end, Waters Friday in a public statement said it would be “entirely inappropriate” for the FHFA, with the assistance of an outgoing Treasury Secretary, to focus on removing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from the government conservatorship they have been under since 2008. She encouraged FHFA Director Mark Calabria to stop any attempts to release the GSEs from government oversight. She says that no move in that regard should occur until the new President is sworn in next January.”At the very least,” she added, “the Congress and the American public deserve transparency from you … I urge you to fully engage with Congress by testifying before our Committee and to immediately halt your efforts to raise the enterprises capital requirements and to release them from conservatorship. You should instead focus on ensuring that renters and homeowners are receiving the help they need during this pandemic.”The Wall Street Journal in November published an article about the current administration’s plan to privatize Fannie and Freddie prior to President Donald Trump’s exit from the White House.According to the article, both Calabria and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have prioritized the conservatorship dissolution, but, the Journal’s Andrew Ackerman reported, “how that is done could affect the cost and availability of mortgages backed by the companies, which guarantee roughly half of the $11 trillion in existing home loans.”Former Freddie Mac CEO Don Layton, now a Senior Industry Fellow at Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, has written several papers about the eventual privatization. He acknowledges the process in order to be done correctly will take time. He wrote that the release of Fannie and Freddie “requires the (FHFA), their regulator and conservator, and the US Treasury to both separately and together make decisions and take actions involving extremely large amounts of money in an incredibly complex, never-tried-before process with many political sensitivities.He continued, “To implement an unprecedented undertaking of this scale and scope, the FHFA and Treasury are, in reality, mostly figuring out how to do it as they go along. To date, even though the implementation of this ‘by administrative means’ plan began a little over a year ago, it has so far only scratched the surface—and so likely has years to go, with many tough and complex decisions still to be analyzed, made, and implemented.”Waters has held hearings previously to address the topic. In September she called a full Committee hearing entitled, “Prioritizing Fannie’s and Freddie’s Capital over America’s Homeowners and Renters? A Review of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic,” during which she called the FHFA’s pandemic response “inadequate.”At the time of publication, Calabria had not publicly responded to Waters’ most-recent statement.
