Uber wins 1 bn investment from ToyotaSoftBank fund

first_imgTokyo: Japanese car giant Toyota and investment fund SoftBank Vision Fund on Friday unveiled an investment of $1 billion in US company Uber to drive forward the development of driverless ridesharing services. The latest cash injection, expected to close in the third quarter this year, came amid fevered anticipation of Uber’s public share offering which is expected to be the largest in the tech sector for years. Toyota has already invested $500 million in Uber as the firm races Google-owned Waymo and a host of other companies, including major automakers, to develop self-driving vehicles.

Toyota and DENSO are stumping up $667 million and SoftBank Vision Fund, the investment arm of Japanese tycoon Masayoshi Son’s SoftBank, will pour $333 million into the venture. It is already the top shareholder in Uber, holding 16 per cent.

If all goes to plan, commuters could ride an e-scooter to a transit station, take a train, then grab an e-bike, share a ride or take an e-scooter at the arriving station to complete a journey — all using an Uber app on a smartphone. Uber is also seeing growing success with an “Eats” service that lets drivers make money delivering meals ordered from restaurants. Last week, Uber filed official documents for its much-anticipated public share offering. The filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission said it operates on six continents with some 14 million trips per day and has totalled more than 10 billion rides since it was founded in 2010. The filing contained a “placeholder” amount of $1 billion to be raised but that figure is expected to increase ahead of the initial public offering (IPO) expected in May. The Wall Street Journal said earlier this month that Uber was seeking to raise $10 billion in what would be the largest stock offering of the year. Media reports said the ride-hailing giant was likely to seek a market value of close to $100 billion. Uber is the largest of the “unicorns” or venture-backed firms worth at least $1 billion to list on Wall Street, and is one of the key companies in the “sharing economy” based on offering services to replace ownership of cars, homes and other commodities. Its revenue grew 42 per cent last year to $11.2 billion but it continued to lose money from its operations. A net profit was reported for the year from a large asset sale, but operational losses were more than $3 billion. And some analysts have voiced caution over the forthcoming IPO given a relative lacklustre debut for Lyft, the main US rival. Khosrowshahi has promised greater transparency as he seeks to restore confidence in the global ridesharing leader hit by a wave of misconduct scandals. In October, Toyota and SoftBank announced the creation of a joint venture to create “new mobility service” including driverless vehicles for services such as meal deliveries. The new company — called “Monet”, short for “mobility network” — is majority owned by SoftBank. SoftBank started as a software firm but has increasingly been pushing into investments under tycoon Son, one of Japan’s richest men.last_img read more

CIBC eyeing growing US presence says CEO who will retire in two

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – CIBC says it is eyeing big-ticket acquisitions in the United States as the Toronto-based bank seeks to boost earnings from wealth management to about 15 per cent of overall adjusted profits.The bank’s retail brokerage, asset management and private wealth management businesses generated $392 million in adjusted earnings last year, or 11 per cent of the bank’s total adjusted profits.Prior to the purchases of American Century Investments and Atlantic Trust for a combined $1 billion, the bank earned nine per cent from this segment.Chief executive Gerry McCaughey said the bank (TSX:CM) doesn’t have to achieve its objective with just one large transaction and refused to comment on published reports that it is in the final running to purchase U.S. money manager Russell Investments for as much as US$3 billion.“The major objective is to get there steadily and on a safe and sound basis where we add value to CIBC shareholders,” he said in an interview Thursday after announcing at the bank’s annual meeting that he will retire in two years.Although the bank has a preference to buy within the Canadian market place, limited opportunities have forced it to look south of the border, he added.McCaughey said it could make an acquisition exceeding $1 billion but wouldn’t say if there is an upper limit, nor any time frame to reach its goal.Laurence Booth, finance professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, said managing the portfolios of wealthy investors is a stable business that fits into the bank’s strategy to lower its risk profile.“Perhaps they’ve decided they’ve de-risked the bank enough that, at this stage in the business cycle, it’s more important to get into some more wealth management business,” he said from Toronto.The bank had invested heavily in U.S. investment banking, but extracted itself after being burned by Enron metldown and the sub-prime mortgage scandal.“It’s sort of like back to the future,” Booth said of CIBC’s growing interest in the U.S.Earlier, McCaughey told shareholders that its strategic investments in McLean Budden, American Century and Atlantic Trust, which alone manages US$24 billion in assets — are aligned with its risk appetite.“(They) are indicative of the type of investments we will look to make in the future.”McCaughey, who has been CIBC’s president and chief executive since August 2005, said he plans to retire effective April 30, 2016, when he will be 60 years old.He becomes the fourth CEO from Canada’s Big Five banks in the past year to announce his retirement, following Gordon Nixon of Royal Bank (TSX:RY), Rick Waugh of ScotiaBank (TSX:BNS) and Ed Clark of TD (TSX:TD).His time at the head of CIBC, one of Canada’s biggest banks, has been a period of relative stability compared with the tumultuous period preceding McCaughey’s promotion to the top job. Under McCaughey, CIBC focused on its core businesses — exiting some of the areas that had been volatile during a boom and bust period that included the dot-com and Enron meltdowns.Recently, McCaughey helped CIBC navigate through a potentially difficult situation with the bank’s Aeroplan credit card business — a long-standing and historically profitable relationship with Air Canada’s loyalty points system.“He successfully led CIBC through the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, instituted a risk management culture that we continue to build on every day,” chairman Charles Sirois told shareholders.McCaughey said the bank has made substantial progress over the past nine years in reducing its risk and strengthening its foundations. But he said it’s the right time to transition to a new leader because the next phase of its strategy will take longer than two years.All Canadian banks have similar processes to replace top executives and McCaughey said he doesn’t believe the industry will be negatively impacted by the departure of a large number of CEOs.“I think there’s stability around strategic process throughout the Canadian industry,” he said.The Canadian Bankers Association said the country’s banks will continue to be well managed, which has allowed them to be rated the soundest in the world for six consecutive years by the World Economic Forum.“Banks have a depth of solid leadership that has served both their customers and their shareholders well and will continue to do so into the future,” it said in an email.Booth said the close oversight by regulators and the federal government doesn’t give banks much leeway for dramatic changes in strategy.“There’s nothing I think on the horizon at the moment that would indicate some substantial change in strategy by any of the banks so it’s not clear there’s a problem that needs to be solved.”The retirement also doesn’t appear to have raised concern among investors as the bank’s shares gained 16 cents to $95.81 Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.

Increased Deportations Of Asylum Seekers Expected Under New Trump Directive

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Reynaldo Leal for The Texas TribuneJavier Alejandro Vindel-Rodriguez on the Brownsville Express International Bridge, where U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents deterred asylum seekers like his family from crossing the border. Some analysts think a new directive on asylum seekers from the Trump administration could result in increased deportations.U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers will be applying more scrutiny on which migrants pass their credible fear interviews and can plead their asylum case before an immigration judge. According to a new memo, more victims of domestic and gang violence will likely be deported without their day in court. Listen Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made it harder for victims of domestic and gang violence to be granted asylum when he overruled an immigration court decision that granted asylum to a Salvadoran woman who was a victim of domestic violence.The new directive by USCIS will impact how Sessions’ decision is being applied in credible fear interviews, the initial step in the asylum process. Andrea Guttin, Legal Director of the Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative said this move chips away at a migrant’s right to a hearing before a judge. “There are processes in place so that somebody who has a legitimate claim can present it, be heard, have their day in court and then the judge can make a decision,” said Guttin. “I fear a lot of people will be denied who could have won an asylum hearing,” she said.USCIS spokesperson Michael Bars said this move is meant to improve the integrity of the immigration system, which has been exploited by asylum petitioners.“Our laws do not offer protection against instances of violence based on personal, private conflict that is not on account of a protected ground, but over the years grounds for qualifying for asylum have greatly expanded far beyond what congress originally intended. Many petitioners understand this, know how to exploit our system, and are able to enter the U.S., avoid removal, and remain in the country,” Bars said in a written statement.Even if an asylum seeker is able to plead their case before a judge, asylum petitions in Houston are difficult to win. Between 2012 and 2017, immigration judges in Houston denied 87% of asylum petitions. Xcenter_img Share 00:00 /00:57 last_img read more

Houston Priest Who May Have Fathered Children Removed From Ministry

first_img Share Shannon Harrison/Houston Public MediaThe Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston has removed a priest who served in multiple local parishes from active ministry. Father Jesus Suarez is accused of sexual misconduct with a minor while living in Colombia. A statement from the archdiocese said the abuse may have resulted in the birth of children.The archdiocese said in the statement the abuse allegedly occurred in Colombia, before Suarez came to the United States in 1994. According to the statement, the archdiocese was just recently made aware of this allegation and it has received no other allegations of sexual abuse of minors against him.Most recently, Suarez was serving as pastor of St. Philip of Jesus Catholic Church in Houston. Previously, among other parishes, he served at Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Conroe as parochial vicar. Father Philip Wilhite, pastor of Sacred Heart Church, told his parishioners about Suarez’s removal in a Facebook post and in public announcements at all masses over the weekend. Wilhite wrote that all of Suarez’s prior parishes and his present one are being advised of the allegations, so that if there are any other victims in those parishes they will also contact civil authorities.The Houston Police Department has been notified of the allegation.Suarez’s name didn’t appear in the list of accused clergy the archdiocese released in January.Suarez is the second priest associated with Sacred Heart in Conroe to be accused of sexual abuse. Father Manuel La Rosa-Lopez, who previously worked at Sacred Heart, was charged in 2018 with four counts of indecency with a child and has an upcoming trial in Montgomery County.last_img read more

Court Limits Display Of South Africas Ol

first_imgCourt Limits Display Of South Africa’s Old Apartheid… Denis Farrell by NPR News Bill Chappell 8.21.19 11:30am A South African court is restricting gratuitous displays of the country’s old apartheid-era flag, calling the banner “a vivid symbol of white supremacy and black disenfranchisement and suppression.” The flag was the official standard of South Africa from 1928 until the end of apartheid in 1994, when it was replaced by a six-color flag whose Y-shape symbolizes unity. On Wednesday, the Equality Court ruled that the old flag is “a symbol that immortalizes the period of a system of racial segregation, racial oppression through apartheid, and of South Africa as an international pariah state that dehumanized the black population.” The lawsuit was filed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, which said displaying the apartheid flag amounted to hate speech, unfair discrimination and harassment against black people. “Judge Phineas Mojapelo of South Africa’s Equality Court delivered the ruling to restrict the use of the orange, white and blue flag of the former white minority regime,” NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton reports. “However, he said the move was not a complete ban, because use of the divisive flag associated with the apartheid years is protected by law for artistic, academic, journalistic and other purposes in the public interest.”The suit targeted a group called AfriForum, which is widely seen as representing the views of a conservative white minority of Afrikaners. In court, AfriForum’s representatives contended that South Africa’s hate speech laws apply only to words, not symbols. They also said that under the constitution, displaying the flag is a protected expression.”Simply displaying it, in our view, is not sufficient for it to be hate speech,” AfriForum Head of Policy and Action Ernst Roets said after the court released its decision. “For it to be hate speech, it has to be coupled with some form of a call to action to inflict harm or something to that effect.”On Wednesday, the Nelson Mandela Foundation said the 1928 flag has become a global symbol of white supremacy and hatred “and is considered by most South Africans as a source of trauma and terror.”The foundation filed suit after the flag appeared at protests in late 2017 that decried deadly attacks on white farmers. Those protests, dubbed “Black Monday,” were promoted by AfriForum.In siding with the Mandela foundation, the Equality Court ruled that in addition to being racist, gratuitous display of the old flag “demonstrates a clear intention to be hurtful” and to promote hatred against black people.Given the flag’s adoption by a whites-only parliament and its six decades of symbolizing the apartheid era, the court said, “It is thus, not surprisingly, viewed differently even today by mostly white people on the one hand and black people on the other.”Copyright 2019 NPR.

Civil war leaves Syrian economy cities in ruins

first_img Top Stories Comments   Share   “Who will pay these bills later on? Nobody,” he said.The civil war also has brought economic suffering _ both from the destruction and from crippling sanctions imposed by the West against Assad’s crackdown.Vital sources of revenue, such as tourism, have dried up, and much of the economic squeeze has hit low-level merchants and businesses.The country’s currency has weakened _ it now takes 68 Syrian pounds to buy a U.S. dollar, instead of 47 at the start of the conflict. The Syrian central bank says inflation reached 36 percent in June. The price of basic foodstuffs and fuel has increased by much more, straining household budgets and leaving many parts of the country facing severe shortages.U.S. and European Union bans on oil imports, which went into effect this year, are estimated to be costing Syria about $400 million a month.Before the uprising, the oil sector was a pillar of Syria’s economy, with exports _ mostly to Europe _ bringing in $7 million to $8 million per day.This income was a key to maintaining the $17 billion in foreign currency reserves that the government had accumulated from a brief oil boom in the 1990s and maintained until last year. The government has not said what currency reserves it has left, but the London-based Economic Intelligence Unit estimates it to be a little more than $4.5 billion. Associated PressBEIRUT (AP) – In Syria’s cities and towns, entire blocks of apartment buildings have been shattered, their top floors reduced to pancaked slabs of concrete.Centuries-old markets have been gutted by flames and gunfire in places like Aleppo and Homs _ an irreplaceable chunk of history wiped out in a few hours of battle.And then there are the many factories, oil pipelines, schools, hospitals, mosques and churches that have been systematically destroyed in nearly 19 months of violence. When the uprising began, inspired by Arab Spring revolts that brought down longtime dictators in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, Syrian forces used light weapons to disperse largely peaceful protesters. As armed elements began to fight back, the Assad regime began using heavy machine guns, artillery and tanks against them.The conflict soon became a full-blown armed insurgency and the Assad regime grew more desperate, introducing military aircraft. In recent months, warplanes have been used daily, pulverizing buildings in an attempt to crush rebel strongholds.On Sept. 29, a fire caused by the fighting swept through Aleppo’s covered market, a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Old City, burning more than 500 shops in the narrow, vaulted passageways.Some of the country’s most significant historical sites have been turned into bases for soldiers and rebels, including historic citadels and Turkish bath houses known as hamams.“It’s a dirty war. Nobody is stopping for a minute to consider the damage that they are causing,” said Haytham Manna, a prominent exiled Syrian opposition figure, likening the fighters on both sides to Taliban extremists who in 2001 smashed the 1,500-year-old Buddha statues in Bamiyan, Afghanistan. Robert Powell, Middle East analyst for the EIU, said the economy alone probably won’t bring down the Assad government in the near future.“It may be another year or so before the economy falls off the precipice,” he said.Experts say the loss of Syria’s currency reserves is the single most worrying aspect for the country’s recovery prospects.“That’s like mortgaging Syria’s future,” said Jihad Yazigi, editor in chief of The Syria Report, an online economic and business digest. “By burning through the foreign reserves that took really a decade to accumulate, you are putting future Syrian governments, and future generations, without any reserves.”Added Yazigi: “When the war ends, where will the government get the money to finance the reconstruction? They will have to borrow huge amounts and in the end, the people who are going to repay the debt are the Syrian people.”Abdelbaset Sieda, head of the Syrian National Council opposition group, told a meeting of Syrian opposition representatives and diplomats in Berlin last month that the country would need a program similar to the post-World War II European reconstruction effort known as the Marshall Plan. The gathering, chaired by Germany and the United Arab Emirates, was designed to address how to prevent the collapse of basic services and infrastructure, and how to revive the economy in the post-Assad era. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis The London-based Syrian Network for Human Rights, which compiles statistics from the conflict, said in a Sept. 28 report that 589,000 buildings _ including residential homes, schools, mosques, churches and hospitals _ have been destroyed, with thousands more severely damaged.The group said it used specialized civil engineers to come up with its damage estimate and put the cost of reconstructing residential properties and other buildings at about $40 billion.Before the March 2011 start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad, Syria had prided itself on being an oasis of security in a region wracked by violence and sectarian tensions.Despite the regime’s massive corruption and a repressive political dictatorship, there also were signs of progress: The country had finally shed its socialist legacy, the economy was booming, and its cafes were packed with tourists, young entrepreneurs and businessmen discussing their latest projects.That image could not be more different now.Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and its commercial and cultural center, has been hit hardest by the violence, along with the central industrial city of Homs. In both places, large swaths of residential areas have been razed, buildings have gaping holes and scorched facades, and hundreds of factories and manufacturing plants have closed.

Syrians also are convinced they will get little outside help to rebuild, just as they have had to fight Assad’s regime without a lot of foreign assistance.“We have a long way ahead before we put the country back together again,” Abdul-Hamid said. “But once we do, and we will, it will be our achievement.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Aside from the human tragedy of the many lives lost in Syria’s civil war _ activists estimate the death toll has now passed 32,000 killed _ there is the staggering damage to the country’s infrastructure, economy and cultural treasures.Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi said last week that the economic losses from the ongoing conflict have cost the country about $34 billion, with the figure rising daily, while the opposition estimates the loss at about $100 billion.Experts say the real figure cannot be measured with any accuracy, given the continuing nature of the raging violence and the difficulties involved with getting independent observers into the country to assess the damage.Although there are some pockets of Syria that have been relatively shielded from the conflict, the destruction in most of the country’s major cities is staggering. Experts warn that whenever the civil war ends, it will take a monumental international effort, and perhaps a generation of Syrians, to rebuild what has been broken.“In terms of infrastructure, major parts of Syria have effectively been bombed back to Ottoman times,” said Ammar Abdul-Hamid, a Syrian activist and a Washington-based fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories Unlike neighboring Iraq, Syria lacks vast oil reserves that could help finance the reconstruction. Assad’s regime has devastated the public finances and institutions to such an extent that Syria won’t be able to rely immediately on oil revenues and taxes to rebuild, Sieda said.German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle urged the international community to be ready to provide economic support, and another meeting is set for next month to bring together Syrian businessmen and foreign donors.Manna said the opposition’s $100 billion damage estimate _ which is double the size of Syria’s GDP at the end of 2010 _ includes the physical destruction as well as losses from tourism and oil sectors, the sharp fall in productivity and soaring unemployment from job losses.Syria has only to look to neighboring Lebanon for lessons on reconstruction. Following that country’s 1975-90 civil war, the government borrowed heavily from abroad. It accumulated a debt of about $52 billion, or about 130 percent of the country’s GDP, that Lebanon struggles with to this day.Osama Kadi, general coordinator for the Syrian Economic Task Force, is confident that won’t happen with Syria, which has a more diversified economy than Lebanon. He said the group has been lobbying the international community to organize a donor conference to convene less than a week after the collapse of the Assad regime.

[IMAGE]The financial institution recently reported notable increases in loan applications during April as homeowners move to capitalize on the government’s enhancements to the refinancing initiative.[COLUMN_BREAK]The California-based bank is currently predicting that roughly 20 percent of its loan volume for 2012 will come from refinancing borrowers taking advantage of HARP 2.0. Bank of the West has been savvy in its pursuit of homeowners interested in refinancing, recently creating an educational series via YouTube.com that provides eight key tips for those looking to tap into HARP 2.0.””We are anticipating that one out of every five new borrowers will be a homeowner seeking a HARP 2.0 refinance loan this year,”” said Karen Mayfield, Bank of the West’s national sales manager for the mortgage banking division. “”This program is providing real relief for homeowners who are current on their mortgage but have been unable to refinance due to a decline in the value of their home.””Mayfield went on to add that low 30-year fixed rates are facilitating the wave of refinancing applications. Referencing data from Freddie Mac, Mayfield stated that interest rates for such mortgage have remained below 4 percent throughout the year.

BoC furious over debtors list leak

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouA CONFIDENTIAL list with the 24 largest debtors in the Bank of Cyprus and the amounts they owe, including the bank’s analysis of their financial status and recommendations for further action, was leaked to the news site Stockwatch yesterday, infuriating the bank that said it would take legal measures.The release has fuelled even further the controversy surrounding the collapse last year of the second biggest lender, Laiki Popular Bank, and its takeover by BoC, where, too, reports of extravagant and unsecured lending by management and board members have been revealed by several public inquiries, making the issue of recovery more difficult.The BoC has been struggling with increasing amounts of non-performing loans (NPLs), which have been reported to approach 50 per cent of its loan portfolio and put tremendous pressure on the bank to write them off as provisions in its books, a development that would incur significant losses to the already troubled lender. However, commentators have repeatedly argued that a small number of borrowers – who have been facing difficulty servicing their loans – were responsible for a large chunk of the unserviced debt, and effectively dealing with them would go a long way towards restoring the bank’s liquidity position and alleviating the risk of sustaining further losses.According to the list, drafted a year ago, the 24 problematic borrowers owed the bank close to €5bn as at June 2013, including account overdrafts, collateral margins and NPLs. This totals to just under a third of Cyprus’ GDP.Lanitis E.C. Holdings Ltd appeared on the list as the bank’s largest debtor, with total obligations of €576m. According to the report, the group’s loans were “frequently adjusted” and since 2006 “only interest was being paid.”“The bank’s board decided on March 8, 2013, to grant €13.65m to cover interest due for 2012 and 2013,” the report noted.But despite the group’s high borrowing and the servicing problems since 2006, further loans of €133m were granted in 2011 to fund the company’s participation in developing the Limassol Marina.A similar predicament was described for Leptos Group, another developing company that was recorded as owing the bank a total €510m last June. In this case, though the bank was exposed to significant risks with regard to Leptos Group, it nonetheless extended new credits of €162m in 2010 to fund the Neapolis Project, a 1-million square metre housing and commercial development project on the outskirts of Paphos.NKS Shacolas Holdings Ltd, main shareholders of CTC Ltd which controls companies like Woolworth Cyprus, Ermes Department Stores and CTC Automotive, with a significant stake in Hermes Airports, were recorded as owing the bank a total €315m. Back in June, the bank’s report expected that the group’s dues would be settled by the sale of its stake in MTN, which was announced in February 2013.Dolphin Capital Investors was another of the Bank of Cyprus’ large debtors with a total €300m. Last May, Dolphin announced the sale of the Venus Rock development project for €290m, which has not yet been completed.The remaining debtors listed in the BoC report were Joannou & Paraskevaides Group with total dues €310m, Limassol Marina Ltd with €138m, Louis Group with €217m, the Libra Group with €134m, the G. Paraskevaides Group with €110m, the Quality Group with €172m, Galatariotis Group with €100m, K. Athienitis Contractors & Developers with €193m, Constantinos Shacolas Group with €185m, Hassapis Group with €212m, Frangoudes & Stephanou Group with €169m, SFS Group Public Co Ltd with €147m, Lefkaritis Group with €118m, Panayides-Farmakas Group with €102m, Tsokkos Hotels Group with €172m, Aqua Sol Group with €199m, D. Zavos Group with €134m, Piitarides (Fairways) Group with €100m, and ELPE/Latsis with €200m.In a statement issued yesterday, the Bank of Cyprus lambasted Stockwatch for publicising confidential information relating to its clients, in contravention of banking confidentiality and warned that it would seek out those responsible for the leaked report.“The bank affirms that it has taken all due measures to investigate the issue and punish those responsible,” the statement said. “Among these, the bank has instructed the internal audit service to investigate this matter, and is determined to bring those responsible to the competent authorities.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
