Inter RAO hunts for investors

first_imgThursday 20 January 2011 7:23 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp INTER RAO could seek a strategic investor for a 25 per cent stake and may also consider share swaps as it continues to grow, the Russian state-controlled group’s head Boris Kovalchuk said yesterday.The electricity generator and power trader is being used by Russia as a home for billions of dollars of assets as the government seeks to create a consolidated power generation giant with ambitious plans abroad.Inter RAO, which boasts influential deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin as head of its board, said last month it would raise cash via a rights issue to buy the assets worth $9bn-$15bn (£5.6bn-£9.4bn).Earlier this week it said it would buy the British holding company REDI, which owns a 49 per cent stake in gas producer Northgas, for $1.5bn.Kovalchuk said in an update on the company’s strategy the group would consider selling a 25 per cent stake by 2015.“Inter RAO is interested in attracting a strategic investor, for which we have set aside 25 per cent of shares. It could be a Russian energy or fuel company, it may be a foreign company that could provide synergies,” he said. Grid company FSK and state-controlled RusHydro have already been lined up to buy stakes of 17-20 per cent and six per cent respectively.The move could be seen as part of a multi-billion dollar privatisation programme of state assets set to kick off in earnest this year.Kovalchuk also said he would consider a share swap with foreign companies – a deal structure that would mirror the agreement signed by Russia’s biggest oil producer Rosneft and BP last week.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

See all posts by Jonathan Smith 2020 is well over half way through, with plenty happening to move the stock market so far this year. There are several risk events for the months to come, some of which I’ve written about here. But as well as risks, the movements in the market present some great opportunities for long-term investors to buy UK shares right now. Doing so could enable larger returns than normal, due to the depressed levels of some share prices after the stock market crash. With that in mind, below are two of my favorite UK shares I’d buy now.Making use of a Stocks and Shares ISAI house any UK shares I buy within my ISA. This is to allow me to benefit from not having to pay capital gains tax. When I sell any stock in my ISA, I get to keep 100% of the sale value. This means no capital gains tax on my profits, ultimately rewarding me for when I make a good call. For this year, the allocation is £20,000, so there’s plenty of scope there to buy and hold good UK shares that you like.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…UK shares I’d buy nowThe first stock I’m keen on is Rightmove. The online property portal is well known to the public, and generates revenue from the estate agents themselves. However, this revenue dried up during the first half of the year due to the coronavirus. In a recent trading statement for H1, Rightmove said that revenue fell 34% and operating profit 43%. Yet with recent announcements regarding a stamp duty holiday, and lockdown easing allowing viewings again, I think the tide could turn quickly. That’s why I’d be buying shares right now, in anticipation of much stronger results in the second half of the year.The second UK share I’d buy now is Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY). There’s a lot of commentary put out regarding the bank, which isn’t surprising considering it’s one of the most traded stocks on the FTSE 100. The first half of the year was tough for Lloyds. Large bad loan provisions had to be made and set aside due to the virus. Consumer spending significantly dried up, and as a UK bank with a primary focus on the retail market, this was bad news. The share price is at levels not seen since 2012, having fallen below 30p a few weeks back. In a similar way to Rightmove, I think the tide could turn very quickly for Lloyds. Consumer spending is already showing signs of picking up. June retail sales data showed an all-time record increase from the previous month, which was another record in itself. If consumers continue to spend more, then this should have a positive knock-on impact for Lloyds.Why buy now?Even if you weren’t planning a large investment, I’d still suggest investing now. The stock market moves and digests information very quickly. The two stocks mentioned above could see a move higher in the short term as other investors come to the same conclusions I have. Ultimately, this could eat into your potential profits as you’d have to buy the stock at a higher price that you can at the moment.center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

She served parishes in Montreal for 28 years before moving to Kingston, Ontario. Photo: Tony Hadley[Anglican Journal] Mary Irwin-Gibson, dean and rector of St. George’s Anglican Cathedral in Kingston, Ont., since 2009, has been elected the first female bishop of the Anglican diocese of Montreal in its 165-year history.Irwin-Gibson, 59, who served parishes in the diocese of Montreal between 1981 and 2009, was elected bishop on a fourth ballot on Sat., June 6,  over another woman candidate, the Rev. Karen L. Egan, 57, director of pastoral studies at the Montreal Diocesan Theological College.Bishop-elect Irwin-Gibson will be ordained following ratification by bishops of the ecclesiastical province of Canada, made up of seven dioceses in Quebec and Atlantic Canada. She will succeed Bishop Barry Clarke, 62, who will retire in late August after serving since 2004.In the final ballot, Irwin-Gibson outpolled Egan 51-26 among lay delegates to an electoral synod and 32-27 among clergy delegates. The church laws, or canons, require a majority of votes among both lay and clergy delegates.“Montreal has always been in my heart,” said Irwin-Gibson after her election was announced. The bishop-elect served as rector of Holy Trinity Church in the resort community of Ste. Agathe des Monts, in the Laurentians, from 1991 to 2009.She urged them to join her in putting their trust in the Holy Spirit to see what the future will bring. “I am calling you to pray for our diocese. The Lord does with us what he wants to do with us,” she said in her brief bilingual remarks. “Let us lay our lives before God in a spirit of dedication and love.”Two other candidates nominated in advance dropped out after polling behind the two women in the first two ballots. Bishop Dennis Drainville, 61, of the diocese of Quebec, was seeking to promote the merger of his diocese, in central and eastern Quebec, with the diocese of Montreal.  Archdeacon Bill Gray, 60, came to the diocese of Montreal in 2012 after serving in the Ontario dioceses of Huron and Toronto; he has been executive archdeacon of the diocese of Montreal since November.Two other candidates nominated at the beginning of the electoral synod—the Rev. Patricia Kirkpatrick, a professor of McGill University’s faculty of religious studies, and the Rev. Canon Joyce Sanchez of Trinity Memorial Anglican Church, at a strategic site in west-end Montreal—also dropped out after the second ballot.Irwin-Gibson outpolled Egan in the third ballot but had only a plurality among clergy, a half-dozen of whom voted for candidates who were out of the running. So a fourth ballot was required.Irwin-Gibson, in a brief and informal interview, said that she is open to the idea of a merger of the dioceses, “but this is a decision to be made by synods, not bishops,” and would involve “long and complex study and negotiations.” Drainville said he remains hopeful about a merger as a means of bringing about a church that is more open and responsive to today’s world.The lead-up to the election was marked by a relative absence of public debate, partly as a result of efforts by the diocesan chancellor, David Eramian, to avoid electioneering. One result of this may have been that there was almost no debate about same-sex marriage or blessings, a topic of controversy during Clarke’s term.The four advance nominees were permitted to distribute to delegates and make public a relatively brief statement of their “vision for episcopal ministry in the Diocese of Montreal.”Irwin-Gibson listed nine priorities, of which the sixth was “to continue the Diocese of Montreal’s inclusive policy of ordaining partnered gay people.” She was the only one of four whose statement mentioned the topic.Her statement also mentions that she earned an executive MBA degree from the Université du Québec â Montréal in 2005 “with study focused on the Church and its future.”The church is in a period of transition, she notes in her statement. “That is not new for the Church. We have a message of hope, grace and healing to share; that message is rooted in our life in Christ. Although we may wonder what lies ahead, the mission of Jesus Christ is not diminished and there is much remaining for us to do.”Meanwhile, diocese of Ontario Bishop Michael Oulton issued a statement congratulating Irwin-Gibson. “It has been a joy and pleasure to work with her in this diocese and while I am feeling a few twinges of loss beginning to settle in which are growing by the moment, I am thrilled that we will continue working together as colleagues in the House of Bishops.”  He added that Irwin-Gibson “served us so well here in the Diocese of Ontario and particularly in supporting my ministry as bishop over these past four years. Our loss is a gain for the Church and the people of Montreal.” Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Canada: First female bishop for Montreal Submit a Press Release Tags Director of Music Morristown, NJ Women’s Ministry Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Hopkinsville, KY Anglican Communion, Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK By Harvey ShepherdPosted Jun 9, 2015 read more

Before it began, faith-based groups from around the world held a pre-conference meeting to discuss their approach.UNAIDS say that the conference “is set to emphasize the need to build partnerships, promote community mobilization to hold leaders accountable and ensure that HIV is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.“In addition, the conference will, as always, provide a showcase for experts to present new research findings, scientific developments and best practices in program implementation.”In the final session of the faith-based pre-conference, the participants re-committed themselves to ending HIV and AIDS, and to keeping up the pressure in the face of “AIDS fatigue.”“We have the science to end HIV in five years, but we don’t have the funding,” the UNAIDs’ senior advisor for faith-based organizations (FBOs), Sally Smith, told the meeting. “We need FBOs and their willingness to go the extra mile. You are called to finish the task that you started.”Smith encouraged FBOs to re-evaluate their targets and adapt to the changing face of HIV around the world. “You need to look at what you are doing. The epidemic has shifted. Have you? We need new targets — doubling the numbers on treatment; accelerating the reach of testing and ending new infections in children.”A joint session of interfaith and Catholic pre-conferences heard the stark message that children with HIV were being failed – “targets for childcare have been missed, medication is not suitable and we still need earlier infant diagnosis with half of infants infected dying within 24 months,” the World Council of Churches said.The deputy executive director of UNAIDS, Luiz Loures, explained that all the U.N.’s targets on HIV and AIDS were aimed at 2020; but had been brought forward two years for children. “Children cannot wait,” he said. “HIV is coming back and it’s more selective. It increasingly follows areas of conflict, with rape used as a weapon of war.”Faith-based organizations tested more than four million children last year – an achievement that was praised by Deborah Birx, the U.S. government’s AIDS Ambassador. “When much is done, even more is expected,” she said. “We are now at a different place and the risks are more complex.“Girls are at risk because one-third to one-half are not in school in many countries and their first sex is forced or coerced. We need to work within communities of faith to teach that children should be able to grow up without being raped.”Additional reporting by the World Council of Churches.

The National Episcopal AIDS Coalition formally concluded its many years of work as the oldest mainline church AIDS organization in June. The General Convention had decreased funding for this organization to a point where sustainability could not occur. At about the same time, the Province IV annual AIDS retreat which has attracted hundreds of participants each year, announced that this year’s retreat held at the Kanuga Conference Center, would be the last. Nearly two hundred participants from across the Southeast were in attendance. The issue for the Province IV retreat was not mainly funding but leadership willing to step up to the plate to keep the event going. No other American church had offered this kind of event for HIV+ persons and it will be greatly missed. I regret very much the loss of these national expressions of church wide concern for an epidemic that is still very much with us.

Steve Enright said.  No one was hurt.Enright said a student fired a shot. Police originally believed another student picked up the gun then returned to school, however the gun later found in the second student’s possession turned out to be a CO2 air pistol, and not the pistol fired outside of the McDonalds. That student found with the air pistol was arrested, Enright said.Enright also said that the gun fired at the McDonalds is still missing.Clint Bond, the External & Emergency Communications Director for Fort Worth ISD, said that up to three students could be arrested.Witnesses said the fight happened around 1:45 p.m. while Arlington Heights students were on their lunch break.A receptionist at Boyd W. Douglas Podiatry, which is across the street from the McDonald’s, said she saw at least three teenagers running through the parking lot and a woman chasing after them. She also said that the woman then directed the police on which way the teenagers ran.At Arlington Heights, the campus was put into lockdown. By coincidence, the school had conducted lockdown drills earlier in the day.This letter was sent to parents of Arlington Heights students, saying that only a single shot was fired in the altercation.“We thought it was just another drill at first and then when we realized it was not a drill it was really scary,” freshman Savanna Gunn said. “We were all just huddled against the wall.”Junior David Dominguez said he knew the lockdown was real when his teacher started rushing to get students inside. Dominguez said he then ran outside as well to bring more students back into the building from their lunch break.Once inside, students remained on lockdown for almost two hours as they waited for news.“None of our teachers knew exactly what was going on,” said freshman Ella DeMott. “They just had to keep us in the classroom.”Gunn said that the students passed the time talking to each other on their cell phones.“We were all checking Snapchat and texting each other to spread the word about what was happening,” Gunn said.Police left the school around 3:45 p.m. and the lockdown was lifted before the students were dismissed for the day. Gunn said that there was continued supervision as students left school.“They walked us out to make sure we were safe,” Gunn said. “There were people posted everywhere.”[<a href=”//storify.com/ecampbell/the-students-of-the-arlington-heights-lockdown” target=”_blank”>View the story “The students of the Arlington Heights lockdown ” on Storify</a>]7:03 p.m.: This story was updated to reflect that the gun found on campus was a CO2 air pistol and not the weapon fired at the McDonaldslast_img read more

The event was sponsored by H100, a philanthropic support group of Hillsides aimed at young professionals. This one-of-a-kind event combined friends, fine dining, and a stunning setting while raising funds for Hillsides teen residential homes in the community.“This Farm to Table Dinner was our most successful to date,” said H100 President April Danz. “More than half of the guests were either new H100 members or those interested in learning more about Hillsides and H100. And we raised more than $4,000 for the girls and boys homes’ summer activities.”The evening began with a reception from 6:00 – 7:15 p.m. while guests mingled in the garden. Guests then sat down to dinner in the Rose Pavilion, a craftsman-style open air pavilion surrounded by 4,000 rose bushes.The dinner, catered by Patina at Descanso, was served family style on rows of farm house tables. The multi-course menu consisted of innovative and local farm-fresh foods. Courses were accompanied by wine pairings provided by Mission Wines. For the first course, diners enjoyed a salad of wild baby arugula, fava beans, pecorino, and lemon and a dish of seasonal vegetables in red quinoa. For the entrée, guests were treated to wild Atlantic salmon and grilled grass-fed hanger steak accompanied by sweet corn ravioli, sautéed rapini, and caramelized heirloom cauliflower. For dessert, guests had their choice of red raspberry lemon Bundt cake and mini chocolate mousse petit fours.During the dinner, Danz introduced the rest of the H100 board, which consists of Jennifer Brian, vice president and treasurer; Annie Brose, teen satellite homes liaison; Lauralyn Deringer and Ava Herrera, social co-chairs; David Hitchcock, membership chair; and Kristin Thorell, communications chair. The H100 founders are Scott Steuber and Jeff Welch. Danz also thanked the Farm to Table Committee, which consisted of board members Deringer and Herrera, Leticia Medina, and Nicola Wilkins-Miller, for their hard work.After dinner, Hillsides Director of Group Homes Ramona McGee spoke about Hillsides teen residential homes, which provide a safe and stable environment for teens in the foster care system or who face emotional or behavioral challenges.McGee then introduced a former resident of the homes and the teen’s mother. The mother explained that her daughter was “drowning” emotionally without the will to live before coming to live at Hillsides as a young teen. At Hillsides, the staff helped her overcome her difficulties and feel hope and joy again. “It took a team to do what my daughter needed done,” said the mother. ”I will be forever grateful for that. It was the absolute best thing for our family.” Her daughter agreed, stating that without Hillsides, “I would be dead, in jail, or in the streets.” Now 17, she recently graduated from high school and will attend college in August.After the program, guests donated toward specific wishes of the teens in the homes, such as bicycles and summer field trips.Sponsors of the event included Nadine and Tony Danz, Armen and Katherine Panossian, Rob and Emilie Hoyt, Kristin and Keith Thorell, Annie Brose and Chris Anzalone, April Danz and Kelly Johnson, Lauralyn Deringer, Ava and Ed Herrera, Matthew and Kim Bickell, Jimmy and Jennifer Garcia, Edward and Noelle Aloe, Don and Sally Clark, Elizabeth M. Short and Michael A. Friedman, and Rachel and Scott Steuber.Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, is a premier provider dedicated to improving the overall well-being and functioning of vulnerable children, youth, and families throughout Los Angeles County.
