BBVA in €5bn cash-call as it buys Garanti

first_imgTuesday 2 November 2010 10:05 pm SPANISH bank BBVA yesterday launched a €5bn (£4.4bn) rights issue to help it fund its diversification away from a stagnant home market and bolster its capital levels in line with new Basel III requirements.BBVA, the second-largest Spanish lender after Santander, said that it would buy nearly a quarter – 24.9 per cent – of Turkish bank Garanti for €4.2bn, and raise €5bn with a rights issue to part-finance the deal. The deal, which gives BBVA joint control with Garanti parent Dogus Group, will officially make the Spanish lender an emerging markets bank with 51 per cent of its earnings now coming from that source. Until now, the bulk of BBVA’s overseas business was in Latin America and the United States. The BBVA rights issue will be a one-for-five offer which will entitle the holders to buy shares at €6.75 each, 29 per cent below Friday’s closing price of €9.11. BBVA paid eight Turkish lira per share for the stake, a 10 per cent discount to last week’s average price, but shares in Garanti, viewed as one of Turkey’s best-run banks, have risen by over a third since the start of the year.As part of the deal, BBVA acquires an option to increase its stake by a further one per cent and get a majority of board seats in five years time. Shares in BBVA fell as much as 3.8 per cent to hit a four-month low of €8.76 before retracing lost ground to close one per cent lower after investors baulked at the price paid and the dilutive effect of the rights issue. Goldman Sachs estimated the rights issue would dilute earnings per share by four to five per cent for 2011-2012. BBVA’s move comes three to four years after other major international banks such as Citigroup, ING and BNP Paribas bought or took stakes in Turkish lenders.BBVA said €3.1bn of the €5.1bn rights issue would be used for the acquisition, with €1bn earmarked for the potential impact of the purchase. The rest would be used for non-acquisitive growth. Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs will act as joint global coordinators and bookrunners for the rights issue.

Wales 2015 Rugby World Cup squad

first_imgWarren Gatland named his 2015 World Cup squad on bank holiday Monday, largely choosing tried and tested combinations, but laced with a couple of surprises Elsewhere in the back three, Leigh Halfpenny was selected at full-back, with support from Liam Williams who is expected to return from foot injury in time for the first game, and likely to line-up on the wing.Wales 31-man squadProps: Tomas Francis (1 Cap), Paul James (61 Caps), Aaron Jarvis (12 Caps), Gethin Jenkins (115 Caps), Samson Lee (12 Caps)Hookers: Scott Baldwin (10 Caps), Ken Owens (28 Caps)Second Rows: Jake Ball (13 Caps), Luke Charteris (56 Caps), Bradley Davies (46 Caps), Dominic Day (1 Cap), Alun Wyn Jones (90 Caps)Back Row:Taulupe Faleatu (47 Caps), James King (5 Caps), Dan Lydiate (47 Caps), Justin Tipuric (33 Caps), Sam Warburton (Captain, 54 Caps)Scrum Halves:Gareth Davies (3 Caps), Rhys Webb (15 Caps), Lloyd Williams (19 Caps)Fly Halves: Dan Biggar (34 Caps), Rhys Priestland (28 Caps)Centres: Cory Allen (2 Caps), Jamie Roberts (70 Caps), Scott Williams (31 Caps) A regulation split of 17 forwards and 14 backs formed the 31-man Wales World Cup squad, which hail predominantly from the regions, which is a testament to the efforts of WRU to keep their players at home.ForwardsThe front row options are as many predicted: the experienced 115-cap Gethin Jenkins who is now the world’s most capped forward (if you include his five Lions Test appearances) and 61-cap Paul James, Aaron Jarvis and the largely untested Exeter Chiefs tighthead Tomas Francis. Arguably Wales’ most important player, Samson Lee, is in despite not playing since picking up an Achilles tendon injury in March. Rob Evans, the Scarlets loosehead is the unfortunate one to miss out, though he remains with the squad for the Italy Test.Gatland has controversially chosen to go with only two hookers. They are Ospreys’ Scott Baldwin and Scarlets’ Ken Owens. Kristian Dacey is the No 2 to miss out and Richard Hibbard is waiting in the wings.Forward march: Ken Owens and Jake Ball both made the cutThe second row have been given an extra place in the squad as Dominic Day is drafted in to cover for Alun Wyn Jones while he recovers from medial ligament knee-injury. Jake Ball, Luke Charteris, who is also carrying shoulder, back and neck complaints, and Bradley Davies were also selected.Taulupe Faletau is the only No. 8 picked in the squad with no obvious cover, one assumes that  captain Sam Warburton, who played there at age-grade level, would fill in. Warburton joins fellow Lions Dan Lydiate to form the first-choice back row. Other choices include Justin Tipuric, who has won Man of the Match awards in the last two games and the versatile James King. One surprise omission was Ross Moriarty, who can play at No 6 or 8 leaving Wales threadbare at the base of the scrum.BacksScrum-halves Rhys Webb, Gareth Davies and Lloyd Williams have usurped Mike Phillips and point to Wales playing a quicker-paced, higher-tempo game.Dan Biggar will start at fly-half, with Rhys Priestland, who was first-choice in the 2011 World Cup, deputising. One suprise is the selection of ‘Nipper’ Matthew Morgan, who will be looked at to open up gaps in broken-field play late in the game. While he’s an outside-half for Bristol, he’s viewed more as a full-back at Test level, and even on the wing. Read Shane Williams, circa, 2003.Prolific: With over 3000 points between them, Dan Biggar and Leigh Halfpenny will rack up the pointsGareth Anscombe has narrowly missed out on the squad, after his October move from New Zealand. An ankle injury sustained in training deemed him too much of a risk with Liam Williams and Samson Lee already going into the tournament carrying knocks.Jamie Roberts and Scott Williams will undoubtedly be the first-choice centre-pair, in Jonathan Davies’ absence and will bring all their combined 101-cap experience to the fore, even though Williams prefers to play at 12. Cory Allen, who had been carrying a shoulder-injury joins them, in place of Tyler Morgan, with plenty to prove to his doubters after a quiet second season.Wingers selected are George North, who can cover at outside-centre, the versatile Hallam Amos and Alex Cuthbert, who has been back to re-find his form, Eli Walker was the man to miss out.

Episcopal leaders consider 2021 General Convention alternatives

first_img General Convention 2021 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Youth Minister Lorton, VA A letter to Episcopalians from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry and President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings.Dear Bishops and Deputies:As this pandemic season stretches on, our profound grief for those who have died is compounded by daily reminders of the economic hardship the plague has brought to many of our communities. Even those who have not suffered great losses are enduring smaller ones, such as the cancelation of graduations, summer camps and other occasions to gather in person. The experience and feeling of loss is real for us all, yet it is important for us to remember that our canceled plans represent our best efforts to love one another as Jesus commanded. That commitment to live and act in the way of unselfish, sacrificial love must guide all of our decisions and actions.In light of our moral conviction and the realities we now face, it will come as no surprise to you that for many weeks, we have been considering how the pandemic will affect our plans to gather in Baltimore in 2021 for the 80th General Convention. Although we all pray that an FDA-approved vaccine or other safe and effective therapeutics will be available soon, we have concluded with regret that we must plan as if our traditional 10-day gathering of 10,000 people or more will not be possible in 2021.Last month, we convened the chairs and vice-chairs, parliamentarians, and chancellors of both houses and the executive officer to consider alternative plans for General Convention. Our primary values are the common good and the health, safety and welfare of the people who would come to General Convention and the people we would encounter while traveling and meeting. With these priorities in mind, our task group is working actively to consider various scenarios, including virtual options and postponement, and will make a report to the Joint Standing Committee on Planning and Arrangements. That body will make a recommendation to the two of us, and we will ask Executive Council for their advice and consent to our decision about how and when the 80th General Convention will proceed. We hope to have more news to share as the fall begins.As we explore new ways to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we share the authority and responsibility of governing our church, we are also committed to supporting our hosts in the City of Baltimore. General Convention represents economic impact of $21-23 million to that city, whose longstanding racial disparities and economic distress have been intensified by the virus. We are grateful for the counsel of Bishop Eugene Sutton of Maryland and his staff as we face these uncertainties together.Thank you all for your faithfulness to the ministry of governance and your forbearance with what our friends in the Church of England call “the changes and chances of this fleeting world.” May we all rest in God’s eternal changelessness during these extraordinary times.Faithfully,The Most Rev.
