Ikea said it also planned to move into new markets, including India.Group sales so far for this year increased by 7.7 per cent to €23.1bn. Ikea said profits would be announced at a later date.The retailer’s results are contained within a new leaflet called “Welcome Inside” and it is believed they are part of reforms designed to dispel allegations of secrecy by chief executive Mikael Ohlsson, who took over from Anders Dahlvig last year.

It added figures would be published every year from now on.

Renault sells €3bn Volvo stake

first_img RENAULT is to cut debt after a €3bn (£2.6bn) sale of shares in world number two truckmaker Volvo, which sent the French carmaker’s shares to a nine-month high yesterday.Volvo said there would be little change in direction because Renault would remain the most influential voting shareholder. Renault sold B-class shares, which have less voting power.Renault chief executive Carlos Ghosn said the share placing “confirms investor confidence in the future development of Volvo Group, which we share, as Renault will remain a major shareholder with 17.5 per cent of voting rights”.He said proceeds would strengthen Renault’s balance sheet ahead of a new strategic plan next year.French brokerage CM-CIC Securities said the move could allow Renault to “seize the opportunity for a stakeholding partnership with General Motors” ahead of the US carmaker’s IPO.The sale of shares will sharply reduce Renault’s debt as it invests in electric cars and emerging markets.The stake sold represents 14.9 per cent of Volvo shares and 3.8 per cent of voting rights. It left Renault with 6.8 per cent of Volvo’s share capital and 17.5 per cent of voting rights. The A shares have 10 times the vote of B shares.Renault said the proceeds from the private placement to institutional investors would help bring net debt below €3bn from €4.6bn, in line with targets. Renault had said its stake in Volvo was “not strategic”, but Ghosn said last week it was “a very good asset” and Renault would remain for “a very long time”. Renault is now the second-biggest owner of overall capital in Volvo.

Trading firms and exchanges are keen to offer clients a choice of providers in the hope competition will force fees lower – but the clearers have yet to deliver what is known in the industry as interoperability. “The lack of progress in the clearing landscape around interoperability has been a major frustration for us,” said Mark Hemsley, the chief executive of Bats Europe. “The lack of competition is holding back the growth of the European equity market.” Bats Europe, owned by a group of investment banks and high-frequency traders, has built a six per cent European market share since its launch two years ago, according to data from Thomson Reuters. last_img read more

But sentiment is turning after forecast-beating results from BNP and rival Societe Generale. Falling loan provisions and strong retail banking exposure helped the two beat third-quarter forecasts despite a sluggish quarter for investment banking that hurt rivals Credit Suisse, Nomura and Morgan Stanley. Both BNP and SocGen have also said their own profit generation would be enough to comply with the Basel requirements ahead of the 2019 deadline, ruling out the need for a capital increase.BNP chief executive Baudouin Prot said BNP would outdo SocGen under Basel III with a core Tier 1 ratio “better” than 7.5 per cent by January 2013. “[There will be] no capital increase whatsoever… I’m very confident on the capital position,” Prot said.BNP, Europe’s third-biggest bank by market value behind HSBC and Banco Santander, said its Tier 1 ratio at the end of 2012 would overall be unchanged. It is currently nine per cent. The bank also said the shift to new Basel capital requirements would add a total of €70bn (£61bn) to its risk-weighted assets.BNP reported net income of €1.9bn, up 46 per cent year-on-year. Revenue, which was forecast to fall slightly, rose 1.8 per cent. Prot said corporate and investment banking held up well despite a sluggish quarter – revenues at the unit fell 17 per cent – while retail rebounded “strongly”. center_img whatsapp BNP Paribas’ outlook adds to confidence Friday 5 November 2010 12:16 am KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

City out with a whimper – not a bang

first_img KCS-content Wednesday 8 December 2010 9:27 pm whatsapp whatsapp City out with a whimper – not a bang center_img Share Show Comments ▼ ANOTHER day, another regulatory assault on the City from Brussels. The latest version of the Mifid proposals, if implemented, could chase away trading from Europe. It would be yet another self-inflicted goal, destroying jobs, prosperity and opportunities. No wonder, therefore, that as a report from Policy Exchange reveals this morning, many finance professionals, especially the younger ones, are considering leaving Britain. This is a nuanced, yet grimly realistic piece of work, backed up by YouGov polling. Not everybody is planning to quit. London won’t collapse. But its findings are nevertheless chilling – at least a tenth of the City is directly under threat, and that is not even including the massive missed opportunities as centres around the world build staff and scale that could have been based here. Of financial services professionals polled, 43 per cent have considered or are considering whether to leave the UK. Over a quarter of those (11 per cent of the total) are either definitely departing or are likely to do so soon, a huge proportion. For individuals, the most important reasons are living costs (86 per cent of respondents), poor quality of life (69 per cent), a weak economic outlook in Britain (67 per cent) and tax (63 per cent). So much for London being some kind of paradise of great restaurants, social life, tolerance and vibrancy – young professionals are much more likely to wish to relocate than their elders, who are more tied down by family.There is an even bigger threat: 25 per cent of senior managers polled thought it likely that over the next few years their organisation would move operational teams out of the UK, with just two per cent believing that their firm would boost UK operations. Slightly more reassuringly, only two per cent of firms are planning or likely to relocate entirely, with another eight per cent unsure – but that still means the loss of thousands of jobs minimum. So far, there have been two kinds of departures: the report highlights the 20 or so major firms that have already relocated their global or European headquarters, often for tax reasons; in some cases, they have retained the majority of operations here but not always. The second kind has seen firms move completely, led by an exodus of hedge funds to Switzerland. During 2009 at least 498 directors of UK companies changed their addresses to one of Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man with an additional 91 UK companies moving their registered address there. London’s financial and business services industries are essentially a labour market agglomeration. While the UK’s time zone is useful, as is the English language, other locations share these advantages (and everybody now operates in English in many multinationals, regardless of country). London’s real selling point is the depth of its markets, especially the labour market for financial professionals. There is no obvious reason why this agglomeration should take place in the UK: there used to be other such clusters across Britain (for example, steel-making or ship-building) which subsequently moved to other countries, such as China. History is not actually that important (Silicon Valley isn’t steeped in medieval heritage) and no guide to an economy’s future (or else Canary Wharf would still be full of dockers). Agglomerations are self-reinforcing: success sucks in ever more business, but a loss of momentum can easily turn into a rout.

Bankers made their pitches to the privately-held company in November.“An IPO is just one of many tactics that we could consider,” a spokesman for LinkedIn said yesterday. He declined further comment.Internet companies such as LinkedIn and Zynga, a popular maker of online social games, are considering offerings well ahead of a potential IPO of Facebook.“Some of these companies want to go public because they want to beat Facebook and others [to get to an IPO first],” said one of the sources. “If Facebook went public before LinkedIn, do you think anyone would pay that much attention to LinkedIn?”Facebook is not expected to file for a public offering until late 2012, Facebook board member Peter Thiel said in September.But that could change. Regulators are scrutinising a $500m (£323.6m) investment and a commitment to raise at least $1bn more in Facebook this week by Goldman Sachs and Digital Sky Technologies, one of the sources said.
