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.

While institutions realise they have been helped by an improving trading environment, they argue they have made strenuous efforts to shrink their balance sheets and sell off non-essential assets.S&P said a sustained upturn in UK banking performance remained “far from certain” despite a series of forecast-smashing results earlier in August. Stronger players Barclays and HSBC generated pre-tax gains of £4bn and £7bn respectively, while state-owned Lloyds Banking Group earned £1.6bn and Royal Bank of Scotland made a profit of £1.1bn.But the fortunes of banks are closely tied to an uncertain economy, S&P said, with several lenders still deeply reliant on government-guaranteed wholesale funding and in need of further refinancing in the coming years.The report concludes that the future credit ratings of British banks are likely to largely remain out of the hands of their management teams. S&P’s key concern is government economic policy, which it expects to squeeze incomes.Analysts wrote: “While a range of management actions have contributed to the improved performance, in our view, the more important contributory factors were the developments beyond the control of banks’ management… We expect economic and market developments that are largely beyond the control of banks’ management teams will continue to disproportionately influence UK bank ratings throughout the remainder of 2010.”Angela Knight, chief executive of the British Bankers’ Association, said: “The UK banks have done substantial capital raisings and have been repairing their balance sheets, writing off bad loans and so on. That has been widely recognised – a lot of work has taken place.”A source close to one of the part-nationalised banks emphasised the efforts being made by Lloyds and RBS’ management teams to shed non-core units to comply with European Union rules on accepting state aid. RBS has sold its share of a commodities trading joint venture, Sempra, to JPMorgan and offloaded 318 high street branches to Santander.“Banks are working on their core businesses too, trying to attract more deposits,” the source said.

first_img KCS-content BOEING chief executive Jim McNerney yesterday said he was heartened by a World Trade Organisation (WTO) ruling on aircraft subsidies, saying it appeared the findings against his company were not as severe as those against Europe.A Geneva trade panel issued a confidential interim report on Wednesday in a case brought by the European Union against US federal and state aid for Boeing, in the biggest bilateral trade dispute ever before the WTO.The report found that Boeing benefited from US federal and state subsidies, but US sources said it was to a much lower extent than its European adversaries had suggested.“It is too soon to determine whether Boeing will challenge the ruling,” McNerney told reporters“I don’t think we’ve gotten to that point,” he said.The European Union said on Wednesday it had won a victory against US subsidies for Boeing that it hoped would set the stage for a negotiated settlement that would allow European governments to continue to help Airbus develop new aircraft.The ruling followed WTO condemnation in June of illegal European subsidies for Boeing rival Airbus, mostly in the form of European government “launch aid” loans.“What we have heard …is fairly heartening in terms of the proportionality of things that were found in the case against the US when compared to the case against Europe,” McNerney said.“Launch aid” loans are European government loans that help Airbus develop aircraft. The WTO ruled past loans were illegal subsidies, although it did not rule on future loans.

Senior Liberal Democrats led the pack at their conference in Liverpool, as party leaders tried to convince members they have not sold out by sharing power with the Conservatives. Deputy prime minister and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg warned banks against paying “ludicrously sky-high” bonuses, and said there would be “very serious action” if they do. He added: “If you abuse the generosity of taxpayers then clearly this government won’t be able to stand idly by.“The last government imposed a temporary tax on bonuses. I’m not going to take any options off the table.”However, aides to chancellor George Osborne yesterday played down suggestions the government would repeat Labour’s one-off bonus tax, which did little to restrain pay but did boost government coffers. Business secretary Vince Cable said banks were facing a “potential train crash” over bonuses, and warned the government could introduce a tax on profits or transactions.Meanwhile,?Labour mayoral hopeful Ken Livingstone suggested the London mayor should have powers to raise additional income tax, with the highest earners possibly paying an eye-watering rate of 80 per cent. “The mayor should have an income tax so you can redistribute wealth. Mrs Thatcher had a top rate of tax of 60 per cent for the first eight years and all these bankers were swarming here,” he said.“I think it would at least be a 60 per cent rate for everybody over £200,000. You might look at an 80 per cent rate for people earning £1m. These are exactly the people that have landed us in this mess.” center_img whatsapp Politicians target the City Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:28 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The cost of the deal is substantially less than investors would have demanded prior to the oil firm plugging the Macondo well, but still reflects its weaker balance sheet. Last week, BP made a $3.5bn issue in the US as it returned to bond markets for the first time since 2009. last_img read more

The rise was in sharp contrast to the 23 per cent loss in AUM seen in 2008, the Pensions and Investments/ Towers Watson World 500 ranking report said. However, total AUM were still well below the previous high seen in 2006. During the past five years only half of the fastest growing firms had done so in a primarily organic way, with the other half doing so by merger or acquisition, the report said.Carl Hess, global head of investment at Towers Watson, said last year was “almost the exact opposite of 2008” as most fund managers posted strong results. But he warned that while markets were recovering they remained fragile, reflecting “weak underlying economic fundamentals and the oscillating risk appetites among institutional investors”.Fund managers from developing countries continued to grow, more than doubling their share of global AUM to around four per cent in the last decade, the report said. In contrast Japanese fund managers’ share of AUM fell from over 13 per cent to under 7 per cent in the same period.Some fund managers have seen exceptional growth in the last five years, including BlackRock, which has risen from 41st in the league table to top with $3.4bn AUM. BNP Paribas has risen 26 places to seventh in the last five years with $1.3bn AUM, There were 12 US-based investment managers in the top 20 last year, up from ten in 2008, while the other eight managers are all based in Europe, according to the report.

A hearing will now take place in February to debate whether the Act needs to be amended or scrapped altogether.A BT spokesman said: “It is important for everyone involved – copyright owners, ISPs, broadband subscribers including consumers and businesses, and institutions like libraries and universities – to have certainty on the law before proceeding.”TalkTalk director Andrew Heaney added: “We are very pleased that the Court has recognised that our concerns about the copyright infringement provisions in the Digital Economy Act should be considered in a full hearing. The Act was rushed through Parliament with only six per cent of MPs attending the brief debate and has very serious flaws.“The provisions to try to reduce illegal filesharing are unfair, won’t work and will potentially result in millions of innocent customers who have broken no law suffering and having their privacy invaded.“We look forward to the hearing to properly assess whether the Act is legal and justifiable and so ensure that all parties have certainty on the law before proceeding.” BT wins hearing in fight against DEA KCS-content center_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more
