CITY VIEWS: DO YOU EXPECT MORE BRITISH COMPANIES TO BE ACQUIRED BY FOREIGN PREDATORS?

first_imgWednesday 1 September 2010 7:56 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ MARK SEGELOV | QUANTAINIA“If Britain wants to operate in a global market it is going to have to expect more takeovers by foreign companies, and there will be more. But Britain has to also make sure that it takes the opportunity to buy up companies in other countries.”DAVOR LALIC | WILLIS“There will be more acquisitions of British companies by foreign investors because the weakened pound makes them cheap and attractive at the moment. As long as money comes into the country, it’s not necessarily a bad thing.”MATTHEW SIVETER | AVIVA“Britain isn’t being protectionist about our companies and so of course they are wide open to being snapped up by foreigners. Because of the recession, our companies are now better looking to foreign investors and I think there will be more takeovers from outsiders.” whatsapp Share CITY VIEWS: DO YOU EXPECT MORE BRITISH COMPANIES TO BE ACQUIRED BY FOREIGN PREDATORS?

EuroDisney set to carry on investing

first_imgSunday 10 October 2010 11:23 pm Share EURODISNEY has defended its decision to keep pouring cash into expanding its theme park business despite a £1.7bn debt pile.Chief executive Philippe Gas said the group’s strategy of continuing to develop the parks near Paris was sensible despite rising losses.EuroDisney has in the past been criticised for pressing ahead with its Studios Park in 2002, which is understood to have added to the group’s losses. Gas told a Sunday newspaper that the development of the second park was the right thing to do because Disneyland Paris was a long term business.Gas said EuroDisney, which is 40 per cent owned by Disney, is committed to paying back a quarter of its debt by 2013.It has also deferred royalty payments to Disney and has occasionally delayed debt payments to its biggest lender, Caisse des Depots et Consignations, although it had not breached banking covenants.Gas said the group was considering developing a third theme park and had enough cash to pay its debt, to finance expansion and to pay for refurbishment of existing attractions.He said the group was focusing more on employee relations and staff welfare after strikes last year.The group is planning to build homes as part of the development of the Marne la Vallee area and to build a nature park and a studio complex.Gas insisted the company was also focused on rewarding shareholders who have seen the value of their investments fall in the last few years.The group is not currently paying a dividend to shareholders, but highlighted that the recession had not deterred visitors, with 15.4m coming last year.

Working on the demand side of our business has provided me with a different perspective and – whether it is building airports in South Africa or redeveloping the old Spitalfields market – I have experienced first hand the direct support a thriving financial services industry provides for other sectors.My speech at this evening’s Lord Mayor’s Banquet will set out to my guests – including the Prime Minister, David Cameron, and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson – the theme of my mayoralty; “City of London – City of Choice”.CITY OF CHOICEThe key word here is choice. I want the top firms and the top talent to continue to choose London in the years to come.If we are to achieve this we must find the right balance – achieving intelligent and proportionate regulation, the right mix of predictability, fairness and competitiveness in taxation, and routes for firms based in the UK to bring in the talent they need from around the world.But most of all we must reconnect with the British public, regaining its trust and empowering local communities as they develop new infrastructure and grow new businesses.Only then will politicians be free to make decisions based on necessity rather than political expediency.And only then will the government be able to convince the international business community that the UK is truly open for business.Michael Bear is the Lord Mayor of the City of London Ensuring the UK remains open for business Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ last_img read more
