The US food giant is less interested in UB’s snacks arm, which makes Hula Hoops crisps, or its northern European operations.UB’s private equity owners, Blackstone and PAI Partners, hired banks JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs to conduct a strategic review of the business last month. Sources emphasised the process was ongoing and could result in the buyout houses deciding not to sell the asset.The takeover specialists paid £1.6bn for UB in 2006, and are considering splitting the company into its biscuits and snacks units to make it more attractive to buyers. The biscuits segment provides around three quarters of UB’s £1.3bn turnover.Although UB grew its business profit by 13.7 per cent to £223.4m and bounced back to a £35.4m pre-tax profit last year, it comes laden with £1.2bn net debt. Accounts filed at Companies House also reveal its pension schemes swung from a £42.9m surplus to a £153.3m shortfall, which could discourage some bidders.Campbell’s is not the only name in the frame. Kraft – which was advised on its purchase of Cadbury by Centerview – Kellogg, PepsiCo and India’s Britannia are also thought to be casting their eyes over UB.UB was formed in 1948 from two Scottish companies and employs just under 8,400 people in the UK, Belgium, France and the Netherlands. last_img read more

The Thai, Malaysian and Singaporean operations owned by Carrefour are being offloaded – offering Tesco an expansion of its Asian operation. Under its Tesco Lotus banner it is already a major player in Asia with hypermarkets in Thailand.Carrefour has priced the 61 stores at around $1bn (£647m). Hargreaves Lansdown analyst Richard Hunter said: “This would be a very shrewd move by Tesco.“This geographical diversifcation has been a feature of its strategy and has been working. Moving for Carrefour’s assets will give Tesco an even stronger presence in Asia.”Meanwhile, Dairy Farm, the Singapore retail group, is also among the pack of bidders. Aeon, Japan’s second largest retail group, and Casino, the French retailer, are also believed to be in the hunt. The purchase would almost triple Aeon’s outlets in the three Southeast Asian nations. It currently operates 27 Malaysian stores and 11 outlets in Thailand. The company is being advised by Nomura. Meanwhile, Carrefour is being advised by Goldman Sachs and UBS, with Casino advised by Deutsche Bank. Wal-mart, the world’s biggest retailer, which has pinpointed south-east Asia as an area where it wants to expand, had not made a bid as the deadline passed. Carrefour, the world’s second largest retailer behind Wal-mart earlier this week announced that it had made a €67m (£55m) net profit in the first half of the year. Sharelast_img read more

EU ministers to thrash out bailout plans

We will not stop until we have accomplished our mission.”Eurozone finance ministers took no extra action to tackle the crisis this week, saying a €750bn (£628bn) fund was sufficient to deal with Ireland’s bailout and any potential problems spreading to Portugal or Spain.However, EU finance officials have repeatedly warned there is no room for complacency, pointing to a period when markets calmed down over the summer and the subsequent turmoil. The summit, to be held on 16 and 17 December, is supposed to agree on the shape of a permanent mechanism for handling a future crisis.But the discussion will also focus on how to handle the immediate situation. There is growing divergence between Germany and other member states on what measures to take, including over whether euro area bonds make sense, and whether the European Central Bank might buy more distressed debt.France added its voice to Germany’s staunch opposition to the idea of euro bonds yesterday, saying it saw little need for such an instrument, which would effectively mean all 16 Eurozone member states sharing debt issuance and credit risk.Instead, what analysts say could emerge at the summit is a commitment to enlarge, or at least consider enlarging, the €750bn European financial stability facility.

Nokia’s new filings accuse Apple of breaching Nokia’s patents related to several technologies, including the touch user interface, on-device app stores, signal noise suppression and modular structure.Apple, which was not available for comment yesterday, has countersued Nokia over patents in the US and the UK. It also remains engaged in patent rows with Motorola, HTC and other mobile phone vendors using Google’s Android operating system.Apple’s iPhone and devices running on Android have carved out a large chunk of the lucrative and quickly expanding smartphone market, largely at the expense of Nokia, which has stuck mainly to its older Symbian software.Nokia’s shares have fallen 15 per cent this year as its share of the smartphone market sank.It has also struggled with the rollouts of its latest answers to the iPhone – the N8 and the E7 models.Meanwhile, Apple yesterday announced its laptop version of its lauded App Store will open for business on 6 January. This could be good news for Apple investors, with the app market forecast to be worth an astonishing $35bn (£22.2bn) a year by 2014. Apple keeps 30 per cent of the price of each app downloaded. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The support is provided through rent concessions and product discounts.Like-for-like sales growth in the managed pubs division was at 2.2 per cent as the pub investment programme continued.“The actions taken to strengthen both the Leased and Managed businesses have resulted in an improved trading performance in the first 16 weeks of the financial year,” said Chief Executive Ian Dyson.“We are now looking to build on this momentum by focussing on further operational improvement across the business.” Dyson said his strategy review had continued and he would give an update in the first quarter of 2011. last_img read more

Vodafone and BT get boost

first_img Vodafone and BT Group saw their shares surge yesterday after a broker upgrade. They also saw exceptionally high volumes, after getting a boost from a note on the telecoms sector from Morgan Stanley in which they were upgraded. The broker said: “Telecoms is our preferred defensive sector. It offers greater potential for a positive growth surprise as well as offering a substantial dividend yield boost over other sectors.” Both firms were upgraded to “overweight” with price targets of 225p for Vodafone and 260p for BT. Vodafone closed yesterday 1.76 per cent up at 181.85p. BT closed up 3.97 per cent at 191.1p.

Sources close to TNK-BP yesterday confirmed that executives at the Russian venture are looking to sue BP management over their planned £10bn deal with oil giant Rosneft. Bosses at TNK-BP are hoping to enforce the firm’s alleged rights as BP’s preferred partner in the country, on top of a separate lawsuit being fought by investor AAR.TNK-BP is also preparing to sue BP chief executive Bob Dudley, who it argues helped the directors.AAR, the vehicle used by the Russian oligarchs who jointly run TNK-BP, started a separate lawsuit back in January to block BP’s £10bn share swap and exploration deal and currently has an interim injunction halting further progress. BP has until tomorrow to secure an extension to its share swap and exploration plans with Rosneft before the original deal expires.
