first_imgSpecialist pension insurer Just Group has agreed a £158m (€179.8m) buy-in transaction with the pension fund of pharmaceutical company Wyeth Group, part of Pfizer.The deal covered 1,200 pensioners, according to a statement from Just Group, and marked “a key step in the work of the scheme’s trustees in the long-term aim to de-risk the scheme’s liabilities”.Rob Mechem, head of defined benefit business development at Just Group, said: “This is a well-funded scheme with a trustee board that was fully engaged in the details of every aspect of the process, and was very well prepared in terms of data cleansing and benefit specification.“To ensure they had found the right home for the members’ benefits the trustees were very thorough and even undertook a site visit to review our administration capabilities.” Debbie Berney, trustee of the Wyeth Group Pension and Life Assurance Scheme, added that the deal was “a big step forward in ensuring the scheme is able to meet the full costs of its future pension payments to all members”.Apollo agrees to fund pension scheme to aid takeover bidPrivate equity company Apollo has agreed a funding deal worth more than £50m with the trustees of the RPC Containers Pension Scheme.It follows Apollo’s proposed £3.3bn purchase of RPC, a UK listed packaging company, last month.In a notice to the stock exchange, RPC said Apollo had signed a memorandum of understanding to finance contributions of £5.2m a year for five years and nine months, increasing by 3% annually from April 2020. In addition, the parties had agreed to a £25m contingent assets deal, giving the scheme security over real estate assets. This will reduce to £12m from 2024.In connection with the bid, Apollo has also agreed funding arrangements with two other schemes sponsored by RPC, announced last month.JP Morgan takes stake in DC master trust Defined contribution (DC) master trust provider Smart Pension has secured an investment from US banking giant JP Morgan.The minority equity stake formed part of a new funding round, which has so far raised roughly £50m as Smart Pension seeks to grow its business in the UK and other auto-enrolment markets.As part of the deal, Anne Lester, global head of retirement solutions at JP Morgan Asset Management, will take a non-executive seat on Smart Pension’s board.Lester said: “Smart Pension has demonstrated how financial technology can have a positive impact by making it easier both for people to save for retirement and for companies to offer pension plans to their employees.”UK insurer Legal & General also owns a minority stake in Smart Pension, purchased in 2016. Last year the two providers agreed a partnership to develop a retirement income product.In October, Smart Pension was awarded a mandate to develop a “pensions technology platform” for New Ireland Assurance, while last month it took over Corporate Pensions Trust, a £12.5m master trust run by financial advisory firm Lighthouse Group.Will Wynne, Smart Pension co-founder and managing director, added that the company was in “early stage conversations” with other companies to provide technology to financial institutions as they “grapple with regulatory change and legacy technology”.last_img read more

first_imgThe amendments to the sale and purchase agreement split the previously announced “headline” $665 million consideration into $380 million of “firm” consideration and $285 million of “contingent” consideration. Posted: 1 months ago Karoon Chairman, Bruce Phillips, commented: “Not many people understand how difficult it is to build a company starting with only an idea in your head. Bob’s entrepreneurial skills, dealing capability and tenacity have been the driving forces in getting Karoon to where it is today. “I wish to assure shareholders that I am committed to steering Karoon through a seamless transfer to full ownership of the Baúna asset and will work with the board to ensure a smooth transition to the new CEO”. Commenting on his retirement plans, Hosking said: “After 16 years at the helm, and having transformed Karoon from an A$8 million pure-play exploration company in the onshore Gippsland Basin, to making offshore gas discoveries in the Browse Basin, reaching the ASX 200 index, developing a strong business in South America and finally leaving the business as an emerging production company with high-quality organic growth options, I believe that I am leaving Karoon in a strong position with an exciting future. “We are indebted to Bob’s vision and contribution and I look forward to acknowledging his achievements in a more fulsome manner at the 2020 AGM”. Karoon said on Wednesday that its board has now engaged an independent specialist search firm to complete a global search for a replacement CEO. To remind, Karoon has recently changed the terms of its acquisition of the producing Baúna oil field offshore Brazil.

Trips to the region were temporarily suspended for two weeks beginning June 28 upon the order of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) due to a surge in COVID-19 cases. Meanwhile, Iloilo province at 2,465 has the most number of repatriated overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). As of July 2, 6,864 overseas workers have been repatriated to Region 6. Of these, 94 or 1.4 percent were positive for COVID-19 in RT-PCT tests. * Iloilo province – 55 “Decrease your mobility because we have no idea of the pending result,” Reyes stressed. Other areas with repatriated OFWs were Bacolod City (831), Capiz (821), Iloilo City (813), Aklan (759), Antique (547), Negros Occidental (489), and Guimaras (199). * Guimaras – eight Most of the LSIs and repatriated OFWs were from Metro Manila and Cebu.

Local government units (LGUs) in Western Visayas were advised recently to prepare for the arrival of more LSIs once airline and boat trips resume. Dr. Renilyn Reyes, head of DOH-6’s Public Health Program Development, said LSIs and OFWs must strictly observe 14 days of quarantine upon their return. She also said individuals subjected to confirmatory RT-PCR test should have themselves quarantined while waiting for the result. As of July 2, 21,563 LSIs have returned to Region 6 since April.

first_imgWestgate sportsbook director, John Murray, believes Iron Mike Tyson could have an edge over Evander Holyfield when they both file out to fight in the proposed trilogy bout. Loading… Mayweather is a -180 favorite over Pacquiao (+160) in a potential rematch of their 2015 fight that Mayweather won by unanimous decision. “I do think when we get back to normal, one of those fights will happen,” Murray said. “Ultimately, it’s too much money for those guys to turn down. If Mayweather can make $100 million for a fight he thinks he’ll win against Conor, I don’t see why he would turn that down.” Tyson Fury is a -275 favorite over Deontay Wilder (+235) and Canelo Alvarez is a -300 favorite over Gennady Golovkin (+250) in trilogy fights originally scheduled to take place this year. But both bouts are on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said in early May that a fight the magnitude of Fury-Wilder would require a live audience and Murray agrees. read also:Tyson offers fans chance to train with him ahead of comeback “I find it hard to believe they’d do it in an empty arena. That fight is such a cash cow, they’d be better off waiting until they can do it properly,” Murray said. “(Alvarez-Golovkin) is another cash cow. I can’t believe they would do that one with no fans. That would cost them a lot of money. They could sell out T-Mobile Arena and all the Mexican boxing fans would have a big party. “It’s not just about the gate. These fights generate a lot of money for the city.” —————————————————————————————————- Tolisso open to Man Utd moveCorentin Tolisso is open to the prospect of joining Manchester United. The Bayern Munich midfielder is expected to leave the Allianz Arena at the end of the campaign and has no shortage of admirers. Express Sport understands United are working on a deal for Tolisso, who fancies a crack at playing in the Premier League. While Le10Sport suggest Old Trafford officials have tasked former Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Antero Henrique with taking charge of the transfer for Tolisso. Henrique has supposedly already been in contact with the player and his entourage. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 That quote from the movie “Pulp Fiction” by Marsellus Wallace might be proven wrong by former heavyweight champions Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. Tyson, who turns 54 on June 30, and Holyfield, 57, each have posted impressive workout videos on social media and expressed a desire to return to the ring for an exhibition match for charity. Will we actually see Tyson-Holyfield 3? You can bet on it at the Westgate sportsbook, which made Tyson a -300 favorite and Holyfield a +250 underdog for a potential fight. “They both look like they’re in awesome shape,” Westgate sportsbook director John Murray said. “As silly as it sounds, people would watch that fight and people would bet on that fight. There would be a lot of interest in it because those guys are such big names. “I don’t think it’s going to happen. But years ago I laughed at (a boxing match between) Floyd (Mayweather) and Conor (McGregor) happening and I obviously got that wrong. So never say never.” Unless you count Iron Mike’s knockout of Zach Galifianakis in the 2009 movie “The Hangover,” Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs) hasn’t fought since 2005. Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) hasn’t fought since 2011. He won the first two meetings with Tyson — by an 11th-round TKO in 1996 and by disqualification in 1997 after Tyson repeatedly bit his ear. “Some guys think Tyson should be a much bigger favorite, but I really think it should be closer to pick’em,” Murray said. “My guess is if those two actually were to fight each other, you’d see that price close lower than that. “People would take a shot on the underdog. With two guys in their 50s, nobody knows what will happen. But people are more inclined to take (+250) than to lay -300.” The Westgate has several other potential boxing matches on the board, including a rematch between Mayweather and McGregor, who said in January that he’d love to be in the first fight at Allegiant Stadium and was open to a bout with either Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) knocked out McGregor in the 10th round of the UFC star’s boxing debut in 2017 at T-Mobile Arena. Mayweather, 43, is a -800 favorite over McGregor (+550), 31, in a potential rematch. Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs), 41, is a -550 favorite over McGregor (+425).

first_imgAll clubs are to be warned to follow the rules governing players suffering concussion following the controversy surrounding Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Spurs have defended their handling of the incident where manager Andre Villas-Boas allowed the Frenchman to remain on the pitch against Everton on Sunday despite having been knocked out in a collision with Romelu Lukaku’s knee and initially being unable to remember where he was. FIFA’s chief medical officer and the Professional Footballers’ Association say, under current regulations, that Lloris should have been substituted. Tottenham’s head of medical services Wayne Diesel said: “Once the relevant tests and assessments were carried out, we were totally satisfied that he was fit to continue playing.” FIFA’s chief medical officer, professor Jiri Dvorak, said if there is any doubt about concussion then the player should be removed from the field of play. Dvorak said there was a “99 per cent probability” that Lloris would have been concussed – and pointed out that Everton striker Lukaku needed an ice-pack on his knee afterwards. “The player should have been substituted,” Dvorak told Press Association Sport. “The fact the other player needed ice on his knee means it’s obvious the blow was extensive. “It’s a 99 per cent probability that losing consciousness in such an event will result in concussion.” Dvorak added that the player’s view should not be taken into account in such situations. He said: “When he has been knocked unconscious, the player himself may not see the reality. “I do not know the details but I know that the Premier League doctors are extremely good and I can imagine that the doctor may have recommended he be replaced. “We have a slogan: if there is any doubt, keep the player out.” Villas-Boas’ decision has been criticised as “dangerous” and “irresponsible” by brain injury charity Headway. Luke Griggs, spokesperson for Headway, said: “We are hugely concerned that a professional football club should take such an irresponsible and cavalier attitude to a player’s health.” The FA has detailed regulations on head injuries and concussion and, although it is understood the governing body is not investigating Tottenham’s handling of the incident, the rules state that anyone suffering unconsciousness should not play again that day. The rules do, however, allow for “a transient alteration of conscious level” following a head injury, which says a player can return to play following assessment by medical staff. Coincidentally, Lukaku was himself the centre of a concussion scare at West Ham earlier in the season when he suffered a blow to the head while scoring, but played on and afterwards said he could not remember anything about his goal. The international players’ union FIFPro also criticised Tottenham for allowing Lloris to continue. The incident was raised by PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor at a quarterly meeting with representatives from the Football Association, Premier League and Football League on Monday, where it was decided to remind clubs of the protocol for concussion. Taylor told Press Association Sport: “I watched the incident on television and I was surprised to say the least that he was allowed to stay on. “We are very concerned that the protocol that involves concussed players was not adhered to and I raised this at the meeting with the professional game’s stakeholders today, and the decision was taken to remind all clubs of the protocol. “Managers should not take these decisions in the heat of the moment and that needs reinforcing.” Taylor said the PFA wants the rules made even tougher so that any player who loses consciousness during a match should be automatically removed from the field of play rather than leaving it up to medical staff to make a decision. Lloris was unable to remember the incident and was taken for a brain scan but given the all-clear. Questions remain, though, over Villas-Boas’ decision. Immediately after the match he told Sky Sports: “The medical department was giving me signs that the player couldn’t carry on, because he couldn’t remember where he was.” In a statement, however, Tottenham said medical staff were “totally satisfied that he was fit to continue playing”. The club did not respond to further questions asking whether Lloris did in fact suffer concussion – under current rules that will require at least a week’s rest and further tests.

first_img “It’s just a physical game,” Lallana added. “Look at the amount of games we’ve had over the Christmas period. It’s been a tough run and with the demands on players nowadays there’s bound to be injuries. “If you look at teams around the league I bet you’ll find the number of injuries has definitely increased. “Not every club is in the semi-finals of this competition (League Cup), playing in the Europa League and about to get going in the FA Cup on Friday night. “But we’ll all stick together. I’m sure the lads who are out will be working extra hard to get back fit.” Klopp has already pointed out his team are doing more recovery sessions than training because of the fixture congestion and the gradual drain on resources has put additional strain on the remaining fit players. But his biggest concern is in central defence where he is hoping Toure will be fit enough to face Exeter, but Mamadou Sakho, who missed the Stoke tie with a minor knee problem, appears unlikely to return. “The problem is if all the players in this moment had no injuries in pre-season they are still in the race and can cope with this intensity, but they have had little things and had no chance to recover,” he said. “We have no break, no chance to recover, but we couldn’t wave the white flag. “We can’t say we have games against Arsenal and Manchester so we can have another team against Stoke. We have to get on with it and see. “I don’t know if any have a chance of being fit. Sakho? I don’t think so. Kolo said it’s only a cramp, but don’t know for him either. “We now have three injured centre-backs and the only fit one got cramp at the end of the second half so that was not the funniest thing in the world.” Playmaker Philippe Coutinho and defender Dejan Lovren both succumbed to hamstring issues in the 1-0 Capital One Cup semi-final win at Stoke. Klopp now has a total of 11 first-team players unavailable – including six either with or recovering from hamstring injuries – and the German admits it is likely to force him into the transfer market. He currently only has one fit centre-back in Kolo Toure, who gave his manager a scare with a late bout of cramp at the Britannia Stadium. Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana insists Jurgen Klopp’s training regime is not to blame for a spate of hamstring problems which have brought injuries to crisis levels at Anfield. Press Association There has been much conjecture about whether the introduction of Klopp’s ‘gegenpressing’ style mid-season after he took over from the sacked Brendan Rodgers has led to the injuries – former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness said it was time for the manager to consider modifying training – but Lallana rejected that. “We have had a change of manager this season. When that happens lads look to impress more and give more,” said the England international. “But I don’t think these injuries have got anything to do with any changes to our training. “We’ve had so many games recently that we’ve mainly been doing recovery sessions between games, so it’s not as if the training has been really intensive. You can’t blame that. “Sometimes you are just unlucky with injuries and we’ve had a lot of bad luck recently. “I know from my time at Liverpool that we’ve got a world-class medical team here. We certainly can’t point the finger at anyone. “It’s a big blow losing Philippe and Dejan, and we just hope they aren’t going to be out for long.” Liverpool’s packed schedule – Friday’s FA Cup trip to Exeter will be their fifth match in 14 days – is more likely to have a contributing factor, Lallana reckons. last_img read more
