ARM surges on Microsoft deal

first_img whatsapp Share Wednesday 22 December 2010 7:14 pm ARM surges on Microsoft deal SHARES?in microchip manufacturer ARM Holdings jumped yesterday on reports that Microsoft is working on a new version of Windows for tablet computers that would use the UK firm’s processors.The electronics giant is expected to use the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January to unveil the software.ARM’s shares surged 36.75p to a nine-year high of 440.25p – a rise of nine per cent. An ARM spokesman said:?“ARM’s position is that we never comment on speculation about our products.”ARM chips are already used in products that use Windows operating systems such as the Windows Phone and satellite navigation technology using Windows software.But it is understood it would be the first time they would be used in a product such as a tablet computer using Windows software. Microsoft is thought to be hoping to use the technology to regain an advantage lost to rivals Apple and Google in the pad and smartphone markets.It only became clear that ARM-designed chips were used in Apple’s iPad following its launch in April after technology enthusiasts had taken the iPad apart and identified the parts.Microsoft took out a licence on ARM technology in July, allowing it to use its designs for its own purposes.The two companies have co-operated since 1997 but the new licence was seen as an expansion of their links.Broker RBS said Windows Phone 7 runs exclusively on Arm, but Windows 7 runs exclusively on Intel’s architecture. The broker said it believed ARM chips in a Windows tablet computer may pave the way for them to be used in notebook, desktop and server computers. whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more

Hedge funds facing the axe

first_imgTuesday 11 January 2011 7:38 pm POORLY performing London-listed hedge funds face the axe in coming months as shareholders prepare to vote on whether to close them down. Up to 11 funds, nearly half of the 28 listed, face a continuation vote as their share prices have traded at “persistently wide” discounts to net asset value, Numis analysts said yesterday.And shareholders that received net asset value (NAV) returns of just over five per cent in 2010, compared with above ten per cent in 2009, are increasingly withdrawing capital and demanding that boards tackle discounts or wind up.Funds have “failed to deliver” the expected capital protection and steady returns since 2008, researcher Ewan Lovett-Turner said. “We believe some investors are losing patience and are now less willing to support continuation,” he said. Both Alternative Investment Strategies, with £250m net assets, and Cazenove Absolute Equity with £66m have triggered votes after failing to improve on 17 and 11 per cent discounts over the past year, while Saltus European Debt now trades at a 22 per cent discount.

It is understood that the review is likely to recommend a sale. A deal could net the label’s co-founder Tamara Mellon, who owns a fifth of the fashion group, as much as £100m.Mellon, who received an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list last year, founded the company with Malaysian-born shoe-maker Jimmy Choo in 1996.Towerbrook also asked Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to examine whether to float Jimmy Choo on the stock market, or whether to keep hold of the company.If Jimmy Choo were to list, it would be following fellow luxury brand Prada, which last month announced an offering on the Hong Kong stock exchange.Towerbrook bought a controlling 83 per cent stake in the brand in 2007 from Lion Capital for £185m.Luxury products have enjoyed a return in demand following the recession.A spokesperson for the private equity house said last night it was looking at a “range of options,” with the outcome of the strategic review due this spring.KBC Peel Hunt analyst John Stevenson said 2011 could be a boom year for retail M&A activity.He said: “There are quite a lot of sales that could come up this year, it’s becoming a peak time for retail.” Jimmy Choo owner mulls £500m sale Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Miliband to warn on inflation

first_imgSunday 27 February 2011 11:34 pm Miliband to warn on inflation whatsapp whatsapp LABOUR leader Ed Miliband will today warn of a “cost of living crisis” for middle-earners, who he claims will be hit the hardest by looming inflation. Miliband will argue in a speech this morning that a mix of rising prices, spending cuts and benefit changes will make life difficult for middle-income families.In an effort to rekindle Labour’s ties to the “squeezed middle” and capitalise on fears of inflation, Miliband is expected to say that wage freezes risk affecting lower earners long after the broader economy recovers.Miliband will warn that a “British promise… that the next generation would always do better than the last is under threat like never before” in a speech at the Resolution Foundation, a thinktank chaired by Resolution founder Clive Cowdery.The foundation is launching a commission on living standards, which will research the long-term pressures on people with low to middle incomes.The thinktank has already produced data suggesting that average pay in 2015 will be no more than it was in 2003 once inflation has been factored in.“While those at the top have done well, middle and low earners are no longer guaranteed the proceeds of growth,” Miliband is expected to say.“Our economy is increasingly unfair not just for those at the bottom but for many of those in the middle as well.” More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tags: NULL KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

Cairn posts record sales

first_img Share CAIRN ENERGY posted record full-year sales and raised hopes that its long-running disposal of its Indian unit will get government approval yesterday.The Edinburgh-based oil and gas explorer agreed last August to sell up to 51 per cent of Cairn India for up to $9.6bn (£5.9bn) to rival Vedanata – but is still waiting for approval for the deal from the Indian authorities.But chief executive Sir Bill Gammell said: “Cairn continues to believe the necessary approvals to complete the Vedanta transaction will be received.”The firm’s Indian unit, Cairn India, has wells in Rajasthan. Its Mangala field was the largest oil discovery in India for more than 20 years and currently produces 125,000 barrels of oil a day. These new wells and rising oil prices due to unrest in the Middle East boosted Cairn’s 2010 pre-tax profit to $577m (£352m), compared with a loss of $27m the year before. Sales hit an all-time high of $1.6bn. Cairn has been trying to untangle its ties with state producer ONGC and complete the sale to Vedanta for the last eight months. It plans to use the cash to expand its exploration off the coast of Greenland where it has successfully drilled three wells so far, with four more planned this summer.

BATS Global Markets to offer primary listing service in the US

first_img EQUITY trading platform BATS Global Markets is to launch its own primary listings business to bring it directly into competition with national stock exchanges, it said yesterday.The new platform will be called BATS Listings and launch in the last quarter of this year to compete directly with exchanges such as the Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange.Kansas-based BATS currently operates the third-largest US equities trading platform, and by offering a primary listing service will enable companies to raise capital as well as allow traders to buy and sell stocks.“Market conditions have become increasingly favourable to companies looking to gain access to the capital markets so we’re excited to launch our listings business later this year,” its chief executive Joe Ratterman said.It follows BATS’ purchase of European platform Chi-X Europe last month, amid a flurry of exchange mergers. National exchanges are scrambling to retain market share as multilateral trading platforms gain ground but until now proprietary services such as derivatives trading and listing have only been offered by established exchanges. BATS has submitted draft rules to markets regulator the Securities and Exchange Commission.
