The difficulty of securing mortgage financing is continuing to persuade higher numbers of people to rent, rather than buy, found the survey, which says 76 per cent more surveyors reported a rise in rents than a fall. Just a year ago the picture was very different, as oversupply pushed rents down and more surveyors reported falling not rising rents.

HP trumps Dell in latest $1.8bn bid for rival 3PAR

first_imgThursday 26 August 2010 8:48 pm HP trumps Dell in latest $1.8bn bid for rival 3PAR THE FIGHT for data storage firm 3PAR accelerated last night as Hewlett Packard upped its bid to $27 a share, valuing the business as $1.8bn (£1.2bn), just hours after 3PAR accepted a $24.30 offer from Dell. US shares in 3PAR shares rose to $27.90 in extended-hours trading after HP’s announcement, suggesting investors are hoping for a lucrative counter-offer from Dell. Dell signed an agreement with 3PAR last week, but the deal contained a clause obliging the firm to match any rival bids. HP’s cash offer outbids Dell by 11 per cent, and represents a 180 per cent premium on the data storage firm’s share price on 13 August, before Dell’s initial approach. 3PAR’s board said yesterday when accepting Dell’s bid that it continued to unanimously recommend the company as the best-placed suitor.

Private equity player Onex and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board will now take the conglomerate private within weeks.David Cummings, head of UK equities at SLI, said the transatlantic offer “undervalues Tomkins’ future prospects”. He added: “We also hope this vote will not be seen as a signal to other potential bidders for UK corporates that UK shareholders are prepared to sell assets too cheaply as a consequence of current depressed market valuations.”Cummings’ remarks follow a string of buyouts of London-listed outfits. Since the start of the year fund managers have seen US companies Kraft and Emerson Electric take over Cadbury and Chloride respectively, while French firm GDF Suez has seized control of International Power. American buyout house Apollo is scrutinising Brit Insurance on the basis of an £851m indicative offer.Tomkins’ board, led by chief executive Jim Nicol, came under fire in July for opening the books to the Canadian bidders without consulting shareholders. At the time, SLI voiced the discontent of other investors by accusing Nicol of engaging in talks for a 325p-per-share offer that “materially” undervalued the automotive and industrial parts manufacturer.But investors accounting for more than 90 per cent of Tomkins’ shares gave a green light to the sale yesterday. Among those voting in favour were blue-chip institutions Schroders and Aberdeen Asset Management. A source close to the company played down the significance of the near-10 per cent of holders who rebelled, saying: “I don’t think it’s completely out of the way with what we’ve seen in other transactions.”Tomkins, which earned the “buns-to-guns” moniker for its brief ownership of Rank Hovis MacDougall and Smith & Wesson in the 1990s, will be sold at the end of September subject to anti-trust clearance. The deal marks the end of the Square Mile’s relationship with a firm that began as a belt buckle maker in 1925 and grew into an industrial giant under the stewardship of controversial tycoon Greg Hutchings, before slimming down in the 1990s.Neil Vickers, a mergers and acquisitions adviser at law firm Denton Wilde Sapte, predicted a further raft of offers for UK companies from US and Asian buyers. “It’s difficult for boards to defend against bids because it’s hard to see where the price should be given unpredictable markets,” Vickers said. “Companies that are cash-rich are making the most of their opportunities and we’re seeing that coming through right now.”Paul Zimmerman, a partner at Deloitte, said: “Some of it can be opportunistic, but some of it can be part of a grand strategy where a US or Far Eastern firm wants to get a foothold in Europe.” KCS-content Game up for Tomkins as buyers target UK Sharelast_img read more

IMF is right – but savings crisis looms

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp IMF is right – but savings crisis looms Monday 27 September 2010 8:53 pm Sharecenter_img whatsapp GEORGE OSBORNE was a happy man yesterday, courtesy of the usually dour International Monetary Fund (IMF), which released an unusually effusive and gushing endorsement of the coalition’s macroeconomic policies. The IMF is upbeat for 2011, predicting growth of two per cent. It makes it clear that slashing the deficit and controlling public spending is the only way forward to avoid a sovereign debt crisis. While squeezing state spending will slow growth, the IMF is confident that liberating resources for the private sector will ensure that the recovery continues strongly. More emphasis should be given to reducing public sector compensation wage premia and achieving savings in benefits through better targeting, it argues, policies that will be music to Osborne’s ears as he prepares for next week’s party conference in Birmingham.But while the IMF is right to highlight Britain’s economic recovery and cyclical upswing, many longer-term challenges remain for Britain. Two in particular stole the limelight yesterday. First, pensions. According to a study by A.T. Kearney, the management consultancy, 95 per cent of Britons will find themselves having to downgrade their lifestyle significantly or be plunged below the poverty line in retirement. The bottom 88 per cent of British households own only £7,000 on average in liquid assets, with many relying on downsizing their homes when they get older. The next four per cent own an average of just £71,000, with the next 2.8 per cent an average of £141,000. Only the top five per cent of households have any substantial amount of liquid assets – and even then only the truly rich have anything like enough. Someone aged 54 and earning £150,000 with £200-£500,000 in liquid wealth will only take home an annual retirement income of £20,000-£31,000. The study demolishes the myth that “my house is my pension”. Downsizing won’t unlock enough cash for the majority of the population; most would only have £30,000 left in equity, after stamp duty and other costs. The government’s Nest scheme to auto-enrol those on lower incomes into approved pension plans will be a case of too little, too late. Charlie Bean, the Bank of England’s deputy governor, was being too short-termist when he called yesterday on consumers to save less and spend more – low savings are a much greater threat to the UK’s prosperity than a couple of years of weak consumer spending and sluggish GDP growth. Second, the corporate exodus. Wolseley, a heating and plumbing firm with a turnover of £13.2bn, will adopt a Jersey structure and base itself in Switzerland for tax reasons. The move will save it millions of pounds and lower its tax rate substantially. The result for Britain will be an even higher deficit, fewer jobs and less investment. The government is consulting on a reform of the tax system but UK Plc has run out of patience – understandably, given the growing anti-capitalist mood music. Britain is the only country in the world which appears actively to want to chase away its multinationals. So the IMF is largely right about the short-term – but Britain’s longer-term prospects remain dire. Osborne is understandably concerned primarily with fire-fighting right now, but he will eventually also have to address those extraordinarily difficult issues if he truly wishes to make his mark as a reforming [email protected] KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

TDC in $3.7bn share buyback

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp THE private equity owners of Denmark’s TDC are banking up to $3.7bn (£2.3bn) through a share buyback and one of Europe’s biggest public offerings of 2010, as they start to cash in on their investment.Over a third of the former telecoms monopoly is being sold initially. TDC’s chief executive Henrik Poulsen said. Apax Partners, Blackstone Group, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, Permira Advisers and Providence Equity Partners plan to sell further shares after an 180-day lock-up.“There is no doubt that this share sale is the first step to a full exit,” Poulsen said.The private equity houses yesterday priced the offering of 210m shares at 51 crowns per share, the middle of an earlier narrowed range of 50-52 crowns per share.The share sale is the latest example of private equity firms making the most of a relative resurgence in demand for equity offerings in Europe to cash in on investments they made several years ago, and follows a successful debut offering by Danish jeweller Pandora in October.While not a flotation, the offering effectively relaunches TDC on the Copenhagen bourse as its shares have been largely illiquid since the consortium bought an almost 90 per cent stake in 2005, in what was then the largest European leveraged buyout in history. Poulsen said TDC, which operates in a highly-competitive domestic market, planned to beef up its businesses in Sweden, Norway and Finland to “prove its worth”.

More than eight of out ten (82 per cent) new jobs will be at junior, middle management or skilled labour, the survey said.Meanwhile, the City is seeing a strong return to confidence, yet worries persists over increased regulation and taxes, according to a small survey by consultants Smith and Williamson, also released yesterday. Four out of five respondents expect business prospects to improve or stabilise — yet two thirds believe regulation will restrict their businesses, its survey found.
