When they stunned the footballing world in 2005 by coming from three goals behind to beat AC Milan and lift the trophy they were awarded just €2m more.The pattern is repeated across the competition, with British teams cashing in despite lack-lustre performances this year. Manchester United raked in €45.8m for reaching the quarter finals. Five years ago they made just €16.3m for reaching the last 16.The bulk of the cash comes from the bumper deals negotiated with Sky and ITV for the privilege of showing the matches.It also highlights the gulf in funds between the teams who regularly qualify for the competition – traditionally Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool – and the rest of the Premier League. It also shows the importance of the battle for the fourth Champions League place. The bumper pay-outs look set to continue, with the TV deals agreed by Sky and ITV set to increase by a further 25 per cent between now and 2012.

The OFT said it was looking into suspected cartel activity, which was at an early stage.As part of the probe, the OFT has visited the UK offices of Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz as part of a broad-ranging investigation into the pricing of trucks. It has also requested information from Sweden’s Scania and Germany’s MAN as part of the probe.The probes are being carried out under both the Enterprise Act 2002 and the Competition Act 1998.

However, relations have been strained over the last year following the release by the Scottish government of the only man ever convicted of the bombing, Abdelbaset al Megrahi, on compassionate grounds.Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, chief executive of BMI, said business customers would benefit from “even more choice between the UK and Libya” with domestic and long haul connections via Heathrow.

Caterpillar to buy mining equipment firm Bucyrus International for $7.6bn

first_img Share Caterpillar to buy mining equipment firm Bucyrus International for $7.6bn DIGGER maker Caterpillar is snapping up mining equipment group Bucyrus International for $7.6bn (£4.7bn) to cash in on the demand for minerals in tiger economies.Caterpillar is buying Wisconsin-based Bucyrus to create a huge global supplier of trucks, hydraulic shovels, blasting drills and coal-mining equipment in a deal worth $8.6bn including $1bn of Bucyrus debt. The combined firms hope to cut costs by some $400m, starting in 2015.The Illinois-based company is increasing its exposure to the minerals sector when rapid development in emerging markets like China and India is spurring demand for materials ranging from iron ore to coal.Caterpillar already makes a wide range of mining equipment. Earlier this year it said it hoped to expand the line to meet demand from mining customers, who are scrambling to take advantage of rebounding prices for copper and other minerals.The deal is the biggest in Caterpillar’s history and could help it to continue to boost its exposure to fast-growing emerging economies. Bucyrus generates about a third of its revenue in the developing world.Caterpillar chief executive Doug Oberhelman said: “The mining segment for us is a key strategic area. Demand for minerals, for coal, for lots of things that come out of the ground will be increasing as urbanisation occurs.” whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULLcenter_img Monday 15 November 2010 7:57 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp Show Comments ▼last_img read more

FSA starts insider dealing trial

first_img Tags: NULL THE FINANCIAL Services Authority (FSA) launched its latest insider dealing and money laundering case yesterday, after increased scrutiny of these crimes by the regulator.The FSA, represented by lead prosecutor Tony Shaw, detailed its case against Neil Rollins by chronicling his share trading in PM Group, a Yorkshire-based company where Rollins was a senior manager.Rollins has denied one charge of insider dealing and four charges of money laundering brought by the FSA and regarding trades executed over three months from August 2006. Shaw told Southwark Crown Court yesterday: “He [Rollins] had price sensitive information and when he anticipated the share price would crash, he dumped his shares on the market. That is what insider dealing is about and that is what he did.”The FSA has redoubled its efforts against insider dealing and currently has 11 individual cases outstanding, three of which were set to come to court in January.On 2 November, the regulator, working with the City of London Police, arrested two people including a “City professional” on suspicion of insider dealing.The watchdog last week called for bankers, hedge fund and investment managers and stockbrokers to have their mobile calls taped from November 2011 to help crack down on market abuses.

UBS is sued in $2bn case by Madoff truste UBS is sued in $2bn case by Madoff truste

first_img Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:05 pm THE trustee seeking to recover money for defrauded Bernard Madoff investors has sued UBS for more than $2bn (£1.2bn), accusing it of collaborating in the imprisoned swindler’s massive Ponzi scheme.UBS was accused of sponsoring foreign feeder funds that sent client money to the once-respected money manager, lending them “an aura of legitimacy” while shielding itself from liability through secret side agreements.Despite identifying red flags at Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, the Swiss bank and feeder funds “chose to enable Madoff’s fraud for their own gain,” collecting at least $80m in fees, court-appointed trustee Irving Picard said in a 107-page complaint.“Madoff’s scheme could not have been accomplished unless the UBS defendants had agreed to look the other way and to pretend that they were truly ensuring the existence of assets and trades,” the complaint said. “In fact they were not and never did.” The complaint alleges 23 counts of fraudulent transfers and other misconduct.In a statement, UBS called Picard’s allegations “completely unfounded and without merit” and pledged to defend itself. Picard, a partner at Baker & Hostetler in New York, is liquidating Madoff’s investment business. He has filed at least 20 “clawback” lawsuits to recover $17.5bn from feeder funds that steered money to Madoff’s firm, friends and family members.FAST FACTS | MADOFFThe estimated $65bn Ponzi scheme run by Madoff was uncovered on 11 December, 2008, and cost former clients all or most of their savings.Madoff, 72, pleaded guilty in March 2009, and is serving a 150-year sentence in the US.

FSA recruits two new senior advisers to boost banking and risk departments

first_img FSA recruits two new senior advisers to boost banking and risk departments CITY watchdog the Financial Services Authority (FSA) yesterday appointed two new senior advisers to strengthen its investment banking and risk management expertise.Simon Prior-Palmer, who will advise on investment banking issues, has more than 30 years’ experience, including as managing director of Credit Suisse’s UK investment banking division.Robert Stansbury, who will advise on risk management, has been a consultant on risk governance to financial services companies since 1993. Before that he was a director at former merchant bank Hill Samuel. FSA chief executive Hector Sants said Prior-Palmer and Stansbury both had “considerable experience to bring to bear on the regulatory changes and issues we face.”Before working at Credit Suisse, Prior-Palmer was a vice president at JP Morgan and spent four years at the postal industry regulator Postcomm as a board commissioner from 2006. He is currently a non-executive director of Toronto-listed mining house Gabriel Resources.The FSA currently employs about nine part-time senior advisers to bring specific industry expertise and external knowledge.“Senior advisers are a core part of the FSA’s delivery of intensive supervision. The team provides experience on regulatory, market and consumer matters,” Sants said.

Coalition is failing to control red tape

first_img whatsapp Coalition is failing to control red tape THANKS to John Redwood, the Tory MP, we now know that the coalition’s supposed commitment to deregulation is a sham. Small business owners – which are most affected by red tape as they can’t afford vast HR departments – already knew this, of course, and all firms in the country, not just the finance sector, are being hit by new regulations. These include the ill-thought through ban on compulsory retirement which – while well-intentioned – actually means that many workers will end up being sacked instead, triggering huge litigation. The coalition’s official policy is “one in, one out” when it comes to regulation, which would imply no net increase. Redwood tested this with Parliamentary questions to see how government departments are getting on. He compiled figures for statutory instruments introduced and removed over the past six months, and discovered that only two departments have actually reduced red tape. These figures obviously don’t give the whole picture but provide the best indication so far of what is happening.Communities and Local Government has added 21 regulations and abolished 40, cutting a net 19; Environment has added 31 and abolished 45, cutting a net 14. These figures don’t clarify whether regulations abolished will make any difference, or whether only disused, irrelevant bits of legislation are being jettisoned. But the two departments are nevertheless to be congratulated – they account for 80 per cent of the 106 regulations abolished.The Cabinet Office, International Development and the Foreign Office have neither added not cut rules. But the remaining ten in the survey have added more than they have taken away, breaching the coalition’s own policies. They have introduced a total of 155 regulations and abolished just 21. Energy and Climate change has added 14 and repealed none; Transport added 15 and repealed none; Health added 19 and abolished two; Work and Pensions added 31 and cut 11; Business has added 20 and abolished none; and Justice, the worst offender, has added a 22 and eliminated only one. In many cases the UK government is merely implementing EU regulation, albeit often with its very own gold-plating. The House of Commons Library’s October report How much legislation comes from Europe? is a good place to start to work out who is at fault, though it highlights how hard it is to find a definitive answer. It proposes several different estimates of the EU’s impact. One of its metrics – which seems about right to me – estimates what proportion EU regulations and EU-related UK laws form out of the total volume of UK laws. It finds a figure of 53 per cent for last year, with the answer ranging from 37 per cent to 65 per cent between 1997 and 2009. It is hard to know for sure. But while the EU accounts for a large chunk of all UK laws and regulations, it remains the case that most departments ought to have been able to cut – or at least not increase – the burden of red tape. The fact that they are actually still adding to it demonstrates that they don’t really understand the challenges facing the private sector and how passionately small firms feel about the burden of red tape. Until we get a pro-growth policy that encourages small firms to hire staff and invest, the UK economy will continue to under-perform. It’s hardly rocket science but some officials evidently never [email protected] Tags: NULL Share More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Monday 13 December 2010 9:34 pm last_img read more
