It will use the funds to expand its operations and repay debt.The oilfield services firm plans to spend up to $2.5bn over the next two years to acquire 75 new vessels for its fleet. It currently has 100 vessels, focused on shallow-water operations. The firm said it plans to expand into deep-water, moving into regions off the coast of Brazil and West Africa.Topaz chief executive Fazel Fazelbhoy said: “The era of easy oil is over. The most exciting finds are coming increasingly offshore.”The global offer is subject to Renaissance shareholders approving the move at the company’s annual general meeting on 28 March. As the Oman-listed firm’s marine unit, Topaz made earnings before interest depreciation and amortisation of $127m last year.Fears the company’s exposure to the Middle East would detract from investor appetite for the offering were played down yesterday. It said most of its operations were offshore and that its operations, centred on the Caspian Sea, remained away from current unrest.However, the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill could have a bearing for firms looking to move into deepwater operations, warned ING analyst Jason Kenny. He said: “Deepwater is going to remain the domain of large cap oil firms, as they can shoulder the burden insurers require for those operations.”RUPERT HUME-KENDALLMERRILL LYNCHRUPERT Hume-Kendall is leading the advisory for Bank of America Merrill Lynch on the Topaz Energy and Marine initial public offering (IPO).The bank is acting as joint bookrunner on the deal alongside fellow bookrunner and sole global coordinator and sponsor JP Morgan Cazenove.As chairman of global capital markets, Hume-Kendall recently advised on the privatisation of VTB Bank, the state-owned Russian lender, in a $3.3bn (£2bn) share sale.He also led the advisory for a $6.6bn raising by Japan’s fourth-largest bank, Resona.Hume-Kendall has a particular focus on European and Asian markets, and has led the funding of many of Merrill Lynch’s largest and most prestigious clients, including BT, RBS, and Lloyds Banking Group.He joined Merrill Lynch in 1998 from Swiss bank UBS, where he had worked for five years following a period at Schroders.Merrill Lynch managing director in corporate broking Andrew Osborne joined him on the Topaz advisory.

The RNLI, which operates more than 40 lifeboat stations in Ireland, says it needs increased donations to continue its life saving efforts.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “One of the best things about the platform is that it’s not just the causes themselves that can host quizzes.Anyonecan sign up for a host account, and hold their own fundraising quiz to raise money for one of our partner causes. We have events coming up by hosts ranging from local business, to Twitch streamers, and of course, the causes themselves, letting our cause partners benefit from a regular revenue stream by simply signing up as a cause free of charge.” An online fundraising quiz platform has launched that lets anyone host live, interactive, fundraising quiz streams to benefit their cause of choice.With Warp Point, people make a small donation to sign up for each quiz, and can then play along wherever they are, competing with potentially up to tens of thousands of other players to reach the top of the leaderboard, with the proceeds being paid directly to the cause in question. Free-to-use, the only costs are payment fees and a 10% platform fee.Anyone can sign up for a Warp Point account and host quizzes, from fundraisers holding events for friends and family, to Twitch streamers, and charities. To run a quiz, the step is to choose the cause to fundraise for, then pick a date, time, and minimum donation. Quizzes can be built with the Warp Point platform editor, using the fundraiser’s own questions, Warp Point’s pre-made question packs, or a mixture of the two. It’s then up to the fundraiser to promote the quiz.The platform is compatible with all streaming platforms, and the system guarantees that while anyone can watch the stream, only those who have made a donation can play along.Registering as a cause is free of charge and as soon as a cause has been registered, it is added to the Warp Point cause database. This means that anyone can choose to host a fundraising quiz to raise money for it, with the proceeds being paid directly to the cause itself.Warp Point officially launched a few weeks ago, and already has over a dozen causes registered with the platform so far, from Caenhill Countryside Centre, Ironbridge Gorge Museum, My Black Dog and Just 4 Children.Warp Point’s Ian Morris said:“With lockdown making fundraising that much harder, we saw charities start experimenting with online quizzes and livestreams, but driving donations from them was much harder than it should be. Warp Point makes it easy to raise money from quizzes by letting people actually play along from home, using their mobile phone. With no app downloads required, and donations handled automatically, people have to make a donation as an entry fee to sign up and play along, providing that little extra incentive for people to dip into their pocket for a good cause.
Taken from an Oct. 10 column posted at prisonradio.org.Herman WallaceThe long and tortured life of Herman Wallace, of the famed Angola 3, was meant to terrorize us; to stifle the resistance that flamed throughout Black America (and many others across the country) during the 1960s and 1970s.If so, it failed utterly.For Herman Wallace, former Black Panther, despite the monstrous torture he sustained over 41 years in the hole of Angola (I will not dignify it with the name “prison”) slave plantation, was one who was caged precisely because, in mind, if not in body, he was free.He was one of three, [along with] his fellow ex-Panthers, Robert Hillary King and Albert Woodfox, who made up the Angola 3 and exemplified strength, determination and will during their hellish times in Louisiana’s wretched dungeons.I have used the word “torture” and I don’t use it lightly.Juan Méndez, special rapporteur for the United Nations, has found that solitary confinement, for any period past 14 days, constitutes real psychological torture that destroys human beings. Fourteen days.Herman Wallace, convicted on trumped-up charges under poisonous Louisiana “justice,” spent 41 years in solitary.In Angola. In Lousiana. In the United States of America.Forty-one years. Let’s put it another way. Herman Wallace spent 14,965 days in solitary. Herman Wallace spent 359,160 hours in solitary. Herman Wallace spent 21,549,600 seconds in solitary.When a federal judge tossed out his illegal and unconstitutional conviction, ordering his release, Herman Wallace, bed-ridden, spent three days in freedom until returning to his ancestors.His flesh is returned to the earth, our Mother. But his spirit burns with strength and rock solid commitment to freedom for us all.According to published reports, Herman’s last words were, “I am free!”But he always was.Herman’s contribution to freedom, even while in the vilest dungeons in America, while in shackles and chains, in Angola, was immense.If he were still present, he would urge us all not to forget his brother-in-chains, Albert Woodfox. For, as the saying goes, “Freedom is a constant struggle!”In the Black Panther Party, there was a saying: “When an oppressor dies, it is lighter than a feather; but when a revolutionary dies, it is heavier than a mountain.”Herman’s death is heavier than a mountain, for he deserved more than three days of freedom, away from the stench of Angola and Louisiana “justice.”Yet his death, his suffering, his torture, his loneliness reminds us all of the true nature of the System; and the dark, monstrous features of the prison-industrial complex; a complex of matchless cruelty and unbridled savagery.Herman, Albert and Robert were subjected to such treatment because they courageously resisted and opposed such repression. They organized a chapter of the Black Panther Party while prisoners in Angola!They were targeted and tortured for engaging in (I kid you not) “Black Pantherism”!So remember Herman’s sacrifice: 41 years. 14,965 days. 359,160 hours. 21,549,600 seconds.And his last words: “I am free!”May we all live to find such freedom!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
