first_imgMIAMI — It is not easy to have patience in times of trouble, but in Thursday’s series finale against the Marlins, the Giants proved why it’s so valuable.The Giants believed Tyler Beede was capable of throwing quality innings in the big leagues. They believed a slumping Brandon Crawford was due for a big hit. And they believed that despite plenty of evidence suggesting otherwise, their miserable play of late would soon improve.At the end of a disastrous seven-game losing streak, all of that …last_img

first_imgBEE is a government policy promoting black ownership and control of enterprises to rebalance apartheid’s severely skewed effect on the economy. (Image: MTN)Mary AlexanderMTN, South Africa’s mobile phone giant and the largest mobile phone operator in Africa, has announced a new black economic empowerment (BEE) deal transferring ownership up to 30% of its local operations to black South Africans.The deal, announced on Monday and set to be concluded in the first half of 2009, comes after South Africa’s second major mobile phone provider Vodacom implemented a R7.5-billion BEE deal in July 2008.BEE is a government policy promoting black ownership and control of enterprises to rebalance apartheid’s severely skewed effect on the economy. Companies’ BEE status is determined by the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Codes of Good Practice, which allocates a certain number of points according to ownership, control, social investment and other criteria.MTN will launch a public offer open to all African, coloured, Indian and Chinese South Africans – classified as “black people” according to BEE legislation. These will include employees and black South African non-executive directors of the company.Until now most of MTN’s BEE equity ownership points come from the Alpine Trust, which holds 13.1% of MTN though a company known as Newshelf 664. Alpine’s beneficiaries are eligible MTN employees, and the trust holds ordinary MTN shares on behalf of Newshelf 664.This structure is scheduled to unwind on 22 December, with the dividend of MTN shares will be declared to Alpine beneficiaries.  MTN will acquire Newshelf for a nominal value.MTN will then settle or acquire all outstanding funding obligations in Newshelf for R400-million in cash and by issuing some 213.9-million shares representing roughly 11.5% of its issued share capital. MTN will effectively acquire 13,1% of its shares held through Newshelf in exchange for the issue of 11,5% of its capital. The company will use most of this effective discount to facilitate its new BEE transaction.“The MTN Group as a South African-based multinational telecommunications company listed on the JSE has been and remains committed to the principles of BEE,” said company chair Cyril Ramaphosa.“We believe these proposals are important for the long-term progress of MTN and will facilitate sustained and meaningful BEE participation in the company.”MTN expects the transaction will make up 5% to 6% of its issued share capital. South Africa’s Public Investment Corporation has undertaken to make up to 6% of MTN’s ordinary share capital in its equity portfolio available for the deal. Based on the codes of good practice, this translates to about 25% to 30% of MTN’s South African operations. The ultimate size of the BEE deal may will depend on market conditions and the extent of reinvestment by Alpine beneficiaries.Beneficiaries will have to make an equity investment to take part in the deal, with MTN helping to raise finance, amounting to less than 0.75% of its market capitalisation. The transaction will be designed to provide long-term, sustainable benefits to participants and will have a duration of six years, MTN said.The company will also establish an employee share ownership plan to benefit eligible employees who are not part of its current incentive schemes.MTN plans to finalise the BEE Transaction in the first half of 2009, subject to market conditions. Full details of the BEE transaction will be communicated to shareholders thereafter for approval.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency earlier this month entered into a consent decree agreeing to a court-enforced timeline for establishing the Renewable Volume Obligation numbers for 2014 and 2015 for the Renewable Fuel Standard, the delayed timeline — especially for 2014 — were a reflection of the problems the EPA set up for itself by numerous delays.“Congress created the Renewable Fuel Standard to help reduce our dependence on foreign oil and to provide cleaner domestic fuel choices for consumers,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling. “And the EPA has finally provided additional clarity about their timeline for announcing the 2014 through 2016 renewable fuel requirements. We have expressed our concerns about the continued delays to the EPA, and we will be taking them at their word that they will adhere to this new deadline. NCGA will continue to work with the EPA to ensure the numbers are consistent with the statute passed by Congress and put the RFS back on track.”Under the consent decree and other commitments, the EPA will follow the following timeline:By June 1, the agency will propose volume requirements for 2015 and 2016 and will re-propose volume requirements for 2014, by June 1, that reflect the volumes of renewable fuel that were actually used in 2014.By November 30, EPA will finalize volume requirements for 2014, 2015 and 2016, and resolve a pending waiver petition for 2014.With regard to the RFS and biomass-based diesel volume requirement for 2017, EPA will propose and finalize a volume on the same schedule.What makes the RVO such a major concern for corn growers? In November 2013, the EPA proposed to reduce the baseline 2014 renewable volume obligation for corn ethanol in the RFS from 14.4 billion gallons to 13 billion gallons — a 10% cut. They proposed this after a record corn crop in 2013, which was then followed by a second record crop in 2014, with the price of corn falling to below the cost of production in many areas.If the RVO reduction took place as proposed by the EPA, estimates were for the price of corn to fall by as much as an additional $1.10. With corn stocks high and prices low well into 2015’s planting season, NCGA and its growers will continue to track progress on these deadlines and hold EPA accountable.When the EPA announced its lower volume for 2014, NCGA activated its grassroots membership in a number of ways, and saw the largest response ever seen for a call to action. When the time came for our growers to speak up, they did so — loudly and forcefully. NCGA’s growers and allies sent the EPA a clear signal when this proposal was first issued, with nearly 200,000 people responding to the public comment opportunity in opposition to the reduction. Nearly 10,000 farmers called the White House directly.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest From planting decisions to monitoring crop performance throughout the growing season, farmers depend heavily on their agronomic support team to help maximize their success.The DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine brands are proud to launch and support “National Agronomy Week”, an annual observance to promote appreciation for the invaluable support provided by agronomists, seed dealers and crop consultants. This season, Agronomy Week will be celebrated April 3-7 and will continue to be observed the first Monday through Friday of April in years to come.“Agronomic experts with various affiliations and expertise play an integral role in the success of our customers, and we want to bring added attention to the important work they do,” said Jesse Hamonic, DEKALB Asgrow Deltapine brand lead. “We’re very proud to help spotlight the expertise and service these ag professionals provide for American farmers, regardless of seed brand.”Hamonic indicated that spring is the perfect time to observe Agronomy Week, because that’s when agronomic support teams are focused on helping farmers kick off the planting season. Then, they continue that momentum with guidance all season long to help farmers finish strong at harvest.During Agronomy Week, farmers can give their agronomic team a “shout-out” at AgronomyWeek.com. All shout-out participants will automatically be entered into the Agronomy Week Giveaway Sweepstakes, with one farmer and three members of his agronomic support team winning a racing weekend grand prize. Farmers also can recognize their agronomic professionals and enter the contest via Facebook and Twitter using #AgronomyWeek and #contest.The DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine brands are giving their own shout-out to these integral members of the farming community via a digital video campaign featuring NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer. “Farming and racing have one important thing in common,” Hamonic noted. “Getting off to a fast start helps lead to a successful harvest or victory at the finish line.”The brands hope that Agronomy Week becomes a strong tradition within the ag industry, to highlight the importance of agronomic support and the role of these professionals on farms across the country.last_img read more
