The committee will publish a keenly awaited draft later this year for dealing with a bank’s bonds when capital levels move below minimum requirements but the lender’s problems are not yet terminal.“Tier 2 capital instruments [mainly subordinated debt], and in some cases Tier 1 instruments, did not absorb losses incurred by certain … banks that would have failed had the public sector not provided support,” the committee added. center_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Thursday 13 January 2011 8:38 pm Basel tightens rules on bank hybrid debt last_img read more

The share swap, announced late on Friday, sees BP hand a five per cent stake to Rosneft in exchange for a 9.5 per cent holding in the Russian firm and access to potentially lucrative oil fields in the Arctic Circle. Industry insiders said yesterday it was unlikely that Russia would win a seat on the BP board in the deal.However as BP embarks on an investor roadshow today to herald the deal’s value, some experts warned that the tie-in with an overseas company could prove problematic in light of the introduction of the UK Bribery Act in two months’ time. “BP is one of the most experienced companies in the world when it comes to operating in Russia,” said a FTSE 100 director with experience in the region. “But it has done something pretty ballsy to team up with a Russian firm before these new rules come into force, the effects of which are completely untested.”Meanwhile BP’s partner in its Russian TNK-BP venture, AAR, is trying to establish whether BP’s deal breaches its right of first refusal on BP’s Russian operations. BP investors will have their shares diluted. last_img read more

Euro surges after ECB’sTrichet hints of rate rise next month

first_img Euro surges after ECB’sTrichet hints of rate rise next month Share Tags: NULL whatsapp THE euro jumped to a four-month high against the dollar yesterday, after European Central Bank (ECB) President Jean-Claude Trichet dropped hinted that interest rates could rise soon.Despite holding rates at one per cent for now, Trichet said “strong vigilance” was warranted, with the ECB “prepared to act in a firm and timely manner” to suppress inflation.In previous years the ECB has used the term “strong vigilance” in the month before a rate hike. “The re-financing rate looks almost certain to go up to 1.25 per cent on 7 April,” commented Ken Wattret of BNP Paribas. “It’s not quite a done deal, but barring a radical turn of events over the next month, the ground has been well and truly prepared for the move.”Trichet’s comments caused the euro to soar to more than $1.395.Data earlier this week showed Eurozone inflation running at 2.4 per cent in February, a 28-month high.The single currency area seems to be recovering well, according to other data released yesterday. GDP for the final three months of the year was confirmed at 0.3 per cent, with broadly based growth.

It is also frequently termed a vulture fund thanks to its history of buying distressed debt and hauling the issuer through the courts to receive payment in full. Its targets notoriously include impoverished countries such as Peru and Congo-Brazzaville.Elliott is highly litigious and uses courts as a weapon to ensure companies and governments respect its claims on stock or bonds. In 2003, for instance, it successfully fought Proctor & Gamble over its takeover of hair care company Wella. P&G offered Wella shares to voting investors at a preferential rate while non-voting shareholders such as Elliott received a far poorer offer. Elliott sued the German financial regulator for approving the deal – forcing P&G to raise its offer.Elliott is happy to hold shares in its targets for lengthy periods – it has held National Express stock since 2009 – but always ends with a demand for change that will enable it to sell at a considerable profit. whatsapplast_img read more

Kindred begins legal action against Norwegian regulator

first_img Tags: Mobile Norway’s gaming regulator Lotteritilsynet has been accused of going beyond its legal remit in a court case brought by Trannel, a subsidiary of Stockholm-listed Kindred Group.A claim has been raised before the Oslo City Court against the Norwegian Ministry of Culture, which oversees the regulator, alleging that Lotteritilsynet acted outside the scope of law by attempting to prevent Kindred from offering online gaming in the country.The filing accuses Lotteritilsynet of imposing unfair restrictions on the operator, including the blocking of payments between its site and players, and sanctioning a ban on Kindred apps being listed in Apple App Store for Norway. This, Kindred claimed, went beyond its powers as a regulator.Anders Ryssdal, an attorney for the Glittertind law firm representing Kindred, told iGamingBusiness.com that the operator is seeking an order restraining Lottertilsynet from what he claims to be unlawful activity.“These operations are organised outside Norway in full compliance with local laws,” Ryssdal explained. “Norwegian customers, who access these [online] games from Norway, are also fully entitled to take part in such activity. Still, Lotteritilsynet attempts to restrict both Kindred and its customers with unlawful means.”The Ministry has been granted a deadline of January 23 to file its response to the Oslo City Court. No date has yet been set for the oral hearing, but Ryssdal said the case was likely to be heard in autumn next year.A spokesperson for the Norwegian Ministry of Culture told iGamingBusiness.com that the department was working on its response with the country’s Attorney General. Lotteritilsynet declined to comment on the case.At present, regulations only permit Norwegian customers to gamble with the state-owned entities Norsk Tipping or Norsk Rikstoto. However, some opt to place bets with international companies that do not hold a licence in the country.This year the Norwegian government has stepped up efforts to drive unlicensed operators from the market, unveiling proposals to begin blocking transactions to these sites in April this year. This was followed by an agreement with Apple to remove unlicensed operators’ apps from the App Store, following a request from Lotteritilsynet.Image: Mahlum Regions: Europe Nordics Norway Legal & compliance Lotteritilsynet accused of imposing unfair restrictions on operator after banning Kindred apps from Apple App Store Kindred begins legal action against Norwegian regulator Topics: Legal & compliance 20th December 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more
