What is driving such resilience amongst “luxury” car brands?Ongoing data gathered from contributors to www.TellYouGov.com suggest it is the quality, reliability and brand recognition these German manufacturers provide, that sets them apart from competition.This is confirmed by YouGov BrandIndex tracking, in which these three brands consistently register among the highest overall “index” scores in the automobile sector. As the graph indicates, a comparison of these manufacturers with the sector median in terms of quality, reputation and general impression shows where their strengths lie. When times are hard it seems consumers trust in car manufacturer quality and reputation. This will only continue while investment for the future remains more important than the latest trend.Stephan Shakespeare is founder and chief executive of YouGov. Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL WHILE the flocks of motor enthusiasts descending on Paris this week for the 2010 Motor Show may suggest otherwise, prospects are less than rosy for the automobile industry. During July and August there were decreases of 18.6 per cent and 12.9 per cent in like-for-like sales, compared to the same months last year.With over 50 new models being unveiled at the Motor Show for the first time, manufacturers are still attempting to capture a slice of an increasingly small market with innovation and novelty. But YouGov’s BrandIndex indicates that concerns of quality, reputation and “impression”, in terms of generally positive or negative perceptions, remain crucial in understanding how UK consumers relate to automobile brands.

REO is desperate to offload the site after being hammered by the torrid property market in its home country.Several buyers are understood to be monitoring the development, which will cost an estimated £4.5bn to develop, with sovereign wealth funds among the likely buyers.REO had already agreed new lending terms with Lloyds and NAMA – Ireland’s “bad bank scheme”– during the summer, which gave it breathing room to find a buyer for the site.It said it would launch a roadshow to attract a long-term equity partner to the project ahead of the expected receipt of planning permission for redevelopment, and that it hoped to list the project before the end of the year.

Rightmove: October jump saves London from a year-on-year fall

This was down from a 6.5 increase last October.The average London asking price increased by 0.6 per cent year-on-year, from £416,157.Every borough in London saw a month-on-month jump in asking prices, buoyed by the scrapping of Home Information Packs in May.However, the Comprehensive Spending Review to be announced on Wednesday is likely to have a negative effect on housing market sentiment.On a nationwide basis, the average asking priced increased 3.1 per cent to £236,849.The general market remained poor, with the number of properties per branch rising from 69 in October last year to 78 now, and mortgage availability continuing to deteriorate.Nevertheless, 105,769 new October sellers asked a seemingly illogical £7,082 more for their homes than last month’s sellers.

Northeast Utilities will buy rival Nstar for $4.2bn in all-stock deal

first_imgMonday 18 October 2010 8:18 pm Tags: NULL Northeast Utilities will buy rival NStar in a $4.17bn (£2.63bn) all-stock deal to create a utility that will provide power and gas to more than half of the customers in New England, the companies said yesterday.The firms said the increase in scale would allow them to better shoulder their investment plans, and would also be beneficial to the company’s shareholders. “Bigger is better” for the two companies, NStar chief executive Thomas May said. “The deal allows both of our shareholders to enjoy higher earnings and dividend growth than if we were alone.”The deal calls for the exchange of 1.312 common shares of Northeast Utilities for each NStar share. That translates to around $40.28 for each NStar share, a roughly two per cent premium on its pre-approach price.

Rio to splash $3.5bn on bid

first_imgMonday 6 December 2010 8:41 pm whatsapp MINER Rio Tinto yesterday made a $3.5bn (£2.2bn) bid approach for Africa-focused Riversdale Mining, sending the target firm’s shares surging 16 per cent and setting up a potential takeover battle.Rio’s move on Australia’s Riversdale is likely to spark a bidding war, as the company has hard coking-coal projects in Mozambique that could eventually supply five to ten per cent of the global market for the key steel-making material.Brazil’s Vale is seen by some analysts as the most likely rival bidder, as it already has coal mines nearby in Mozambique. India’s Tata Steel, Riversdale’s top shareholder, was also seen as a potential bidder.Tata said it regarded its Riversdale stake as a strategic investment. “Tata Steel will continue to monitor the situation and will take appropriate action as deemed necessary,” the company said.Xstrata, Anglo American and Peabody Energy could also be interested. Top coking-coal exporter BHP Billiton is seen as a less likely contender, as it has its own growth options in Australia.

Overall unemployment is estimated at nine per cent but among young people it is thought to be much higher.The Egyptian finance minister Youssef Boutros-Ghali was forced to cancel a planned appearance at a breakfast meeting due to the riots, with the issue of youth unemployment in the Mahgreb being raised in his absence.And adding to leaders’ woes was the prospect of rising inflation due to quantitative easing. “Money is gradually becoming not worth the paper it’s printed on,” said China Investment Corporation president Gao Xiqing. whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img KCS-content Davos leaders on defensive as risks loom by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Net debt was down £103m to £1.26bn at the year end and will be under £900m after it offloaded its meat-free and canned grocery divisions.

But the Aim-listed firm’s shares closed up 4.2 per cent after a late-afternoon announcement of a £120m contract to provide fire fighting equipment and training to the United Arab Emirates.The firm, which provides equipment to the London Fire Brigade, was forced to announce details of the lucrative deal to the market after it was leaked at a Middle Eastern trade show. AssetCo called off takeover talks two weeks ago to focus on its cash problems and said yesterday it needed £8.5m of extra capital to bridge a temporary funding gap.Geoff Allum, an analyst at AssetCo’s broker Arden Partners, told City A.M.: “We’re feeling fairly confident that this situation will be resolved in a positive way. “It’s very unfortunate that this company that has very high visibility on its contracts has this short-term funding issue, but I am sure we will manage it.”Northland Capital analyst Andy Hanson said: “While the financing issues could be resolved shortly, the longer term reputational impacts could last some time and undermine the progress of the business.”The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said in a letter printed yesterday it continues to have concerns over AssetCo’s performance. FBU general secretary Mike Wrack wrote to the London Fire Commissioner to argue that AssetCo cannot guarantee a serviceable fleet. AssetCo’s Aim-listed shares tanked 25 per cent after the news of the share sale, but closed up 4.2 per cent at 25p following the UAE announcement around half an hour before the market closed.

Gaddafi calls ceasefire after UN approves air strikes

first_img Gaddafi calls ceasefire after UN approves air strikes whatsapp John Dunne Muammar Gaddafi’s government said it was declaring a unilateral ceasefire in its offensive to crush Libya’s revolt, as Western warplanes prepared to attack his forces.But government troops pounded the rebel-held western city of Misrata, killing at least 25 people including children, a doctor there told Reuters. Residents said there was no sign of a ceasefire.And in the rebel-controlled east, the government declaration was dismissed as a ruse or a sign Gaddafi was desperate.“We have to be very cautious. He is now starting to be afraid, but on the ground the threat has not changed,” a French spokesman said. Britain, like France a strong advocate of armed action, said it would judge Gaddafi by “actions, not his words.”Turkey, an opponent of military action, said the ceasefire should go into effect immediately.“We decided on an immediate ceasefire and on an immediate stop to all military operations,” Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa told reporters in Tripoli on Friday, after the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution authorizing military action.He called for dialogue with all sides. Gaddafi had vowed to show “no mercy, no pity” on Thursday, and rebels pleaded for foreign aid before time ran out.The ceasefire offer was probably prompted by Gaddafi’s realization that air strikes could seriously degrade the Libyan military, said John Drake, senior risk consultant at AKE.“The Gaddafi regime may be willing to negotiate,” he told Reuters. “With talk of strikes against military convoys he may be concerned about a significant attack on his military.” Western officials said military action could include France, Britain, the United States and one or more Arab countries.“Britain will deploy Tornadoes and Typhoons as well as air-to-air refueling and surveillance aircraft,” Prime Minister David Cameron told parliament.“Preparations to deploy these aircraft have already started and in the coming hours they will move to airbases from where they can start to take the necessary action.” whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Friday 18 March 2011 11:51 am Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Todayautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Tags: NULLlast_img read more
