No announcements were made to the London Stock Exchange, with both companies believing there was nothing of substance to report.A merger between the two companies might have brought together by Mecom chief executive David Montgomery who used to head Trinity Mirror.However, Montgomery has been fighting a rearguard action at Mecom, with a group of shareholders who own around 40 per cent of the group’s shares wanting him to quit. Mecom has been conducting a search for a new chief executive to replace Montgomery after shareholders pressed for his departure. The search process has recently faltered, leading some to suggest that Montgomery wants to stay.One candidate, who has had conversations with the group’s recruitment consultants, told CityA.M: “This has been the weirdest process. I would describe it as shambolic. I just did not get a good vibe about it.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The UK remained at number 15, overtaking Canada but being overtaken by Slovakia, which jumped 12 places. Poland and Slovakia both performed well, largely due to big increases in internet subscriptions and tourism.Despite its economic troubles, Ireland received a rare piece of good news, moving from third place to second place in the list.“Exports have remained the bright light in Ireland’s story, underpinned by the country’s chemicals, pharmaceutical and tech sectors,” Ferraro said.“The government has also remained absolutely adamant that Ireland retain its 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate to ensure that multinational companies that have headquarters in Ireland will remain,” he added.“The survey supports the view that governments will find protectionist arguments less compelling and more expensive to implement,” commented Dan Ikenson, trade economist at the Cato Institute in Washington DC.“Openness to trade, finance, and labour in all directions will become even more imperative in the years ahead,” he added.Despite the global economic slowdown, there has not been a return to “ruinous tit-for-tat protectionism,” he said.According to the World Bank, 400m people in China have escaped poverty due to trade liberalisation, Ikenson said.

Rexam stock jumps on talk of £200m sale deal

first_imgMonday 7 February 2011 7:55 pm SHARES in Rexam soared yesterday after the British can maker confirmed plans to sell its beverage and specialties arm in a deal that could be worth £200m. The shares rose nearly five per cent in early trading, before closing the day up 3.4 per cent from Friday’s close at 368.9p.Rexam is believed to have appointed Barclays Capital as advisers on the deal, and final bids for the business unit – which makes lids for drink and food containers – are expected this week. Bankers have long said Rexam is an attractive target for takeover. A Rexam spokesman said that the company was considering options for the unit.Rexam was the top FTSE 100 climber just ten days ago when its stock rose following news that it had completed contract negotiations in North America, and signed a long-term contract with its largest Brazilian customer. Following the completion of these negotiations the company forecast that overall operating profit in its Beverage Can North America division in 2011 is expected to remain comparable to that in 2010, as improved pricing, new customers, continued growth in specialty cans and further cost control initiatives will offset the impact of lower net 12 ounce volumes. As a result of the negotiations, Rexam has diversified the customer base for all can sizes and has signed medium-term contracts to recover most of the 2011 volume loss by 2013. The company is scheduled to release its preliminary results for 2010 on 23 February.In a trading update from November, chief executive Graham Chipchase said the company expected its results in the second half of 2010 to be similar to those of the first.

Icahn returns client cash

first_img Share BILLIONAIRE hedge-fund manager Carl Icahn is returning outside investors’ capital, marking the end of an era as he joins a string of prominent stock pickers who no longer wants the headache of overseeing other people’s money.Icahn, known for his knack of picking winners and his ability to face off with captains of industry, says he has grown weary of overseeing others’ money as markets are becoming more unpredictable and investors more demanding.“While it may sound ‘corny’ to some, the losses that were incurred by investors in our funds in 2008 bothered me a great deal more, in many respects, than my own losses,” the 75-year-old investor wrote in a six-paragraph-long letter sent to investors. Outsiders had invested roughly $1.75bn (£1bn) in Icahn’s $7bn Icahn Capital hedge fund.

The scale and speed of the equity selloff, on record volume for a second day running, forced fund managers to sit on the sidelines.“Even if we wanted to sell today there was very little we could do,” said a fund manager at a Japanese fund, asking not to be named because he was not authorised to speak to the media.“We didn’t sell and waited sidelined because hedge funds were just dumping stocks in panic.”At one point the broader Nikkei plunged 14 per cent after Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the risk of nuclear contamination was rising at the Fukushima Daiichi complex on Japan’s ravaged northeastern coast, 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo.Equity futures fell and the yen rallied as risky assets were dumped. The yen steadied soon after, raising suspicion that authorities had intervened. The Ministry of Finance declined to comment on intervention.In contrast to Monday’s trading, when construction stocks rose, none of the 225 constituents of the benchmark Nikkei average gained on Tuesday. The broad TOPIX index of Japanese stocks has dropped by 16.3 percent this week, the worst two-day losing streak since the global equity crash of October 1987.“All focus is on the nuclear crisis. In the situation where the crisis appears to be worsening, foreign investors, domestic fund operators are pulling out from Japanese shares,” Hideyuki Ishiguro, a supervisor at Okasan Securities in Tokyo.The Tokyo Stock Exchange’s biggest companies have lost about $626bn in value this week. Volumes on the TSE first section were 5.77BN shares, a nearly 20 per cent increase from the record peak reached the previous day, itself the biggest since World War Two.The Nikkei share average .N225 dropped 10.6 per cent to 8,605.15, the biggest percentage loss since the global financial crisis of 2008.
