Brookfield Property Partners makes offer to buy GGP banking on future of

first_imgTORONTO – Brookfield Property Partners LP offered $18.8-billion in stock and cash to fully acquire U.S. shopping mall owner GGP Inc. in a deal announced Monday, doubling down on the future of bricks-and-mortar retail even as many merchants face increasing pressure from e-commerce.The Toronto-based company (TSX:BPY.UN), a publicly-traded real estate subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management, already holds a 34 per cent stake in GGP (NYSE: GGP).The Chicago-based mall owner, which has 126 retail properties in 40 U.S. states, said it has formed a special committee of its non-executive, independent directors to review and consider the offer.The acquisition is an opportunity to leverage Brookfield’s expertise to grow, transform or reposition GGP’s shopping centres, “creating long-term value in a way that would not otherwise be possible,” said Brian Kingston, chief executive officer of Brookfield Property Group.“Brookfield’s access to large-scale capital and deep operating expertise across multiple real estate sectors combined with GGP’s high-quality retail asset base will allow us to maximize the value of these irreplaceable assets,” he said in a statement on Monday.Brookfield is offering $29, or US$23, in cash or 0.9656 of a Brookfield Property Partners unit in exchange for each GGP share. The amount of cash offered is capped at $9.4 billion, while the number of shares offered is limited to 309 million, worth roughly $9.4 billion.Brookfield Property Partners said the offer is a premium of 21 per cent to where GGP shares were trading before reports of a possible offer last week.Shares of Brookfield Property Partners were down more than three per cent in midday trading in Toronto on Monday to $29. Shares of GGP in New York, however, were up more than seven per cent to US$23.77.However, GGP shares are down nearly five per cent year-to-date, including Monday’s lift, as its retail tenants increasingly come under pressure from e-commerce sellers competitors, such as Amazon.But Brookfield’s Kingston sounded bullish on American shopping malls on its third-quarter earnings call earlier this month. He said that its U.S. mall business — which consists of 126 regional malls containing roughly 11.4 million square metres — saw positive financial results, with occupancy rising 80 basis points to 95.4 per cent.“Well-located, high-quality, retail real estate in the United States continues to perform well, despite negative perception in the public markets,” he told analysts on Nov. 2.“While many retailers continue to face significant challenges in growing their businesses, those retailers that are focused on the intersection between bricks and mortar retail and online sales channels continue to expand and grow.”He added in a letter to unitholders that it has continued to acquire big-box anchor spaces in malls and reposition them, calling it “one of the best opportunities in U.S. retail today.”John Williams, a partner at retail consulting company J.C. Williams Group, said there is “deep concern” in the U.S. about a “potential retail apocalypse” amid pressure on traditional retailers and shopping centres, some of which are overleveraged.However, he added, premier shopping centres in prime locations continue to draw in shoppers. And the shopping centres being revitalized — such as by using food as opposed to department stores as anchor tenants — to improve the shopper’s experience will be rewarded, he said.“The mall is nowhere near dead, and the good tenants are still very vital,” Williams said. “And I think it’s a matter of reinvention, to some degree, the tenant mix.”Mark Rothschild, a real estate analyst with Canaccord Genuity in Toronto, said Brookfield has signalled its interest in GGP for several years.“It’s only really been the last couple of years that GGP’s stock price has not done well, which created the opportunity for Brookfield to do this,” he said.However, Rothschild said it was surprising that Brookfield made the bid without partners, using its own expensive capital for the transaction.The offer comes after Brookfield in 2010 invested $2.5 billion for a 27 per cent stake in GGP as part of a deal for its emergence from bankruptcy. Brookfield has since moved to increase its stake, and in November 2013 Brookfield Property Partners invested another US$1.4 billion.last_img read more

TransCanada name change de emphasizes Canada for leery investors analyst

first_img“To suggest one of the biggest corporations in Canada is changing its name to distance itself from Canadian policies? I don’t know that I agree with that when a good chunk of their customers are still Canadian and who they interact with are still Canadian,” he said.There’s good reason for the company to be proud of its Canadian roots, he added, given its place on stock market indexes of Canadian firms and Canada’s reputation versus the United States in Mexico.TransCanada says it has about 7,000 employees in North America, with 3,500 in Canada, 3,200 in the U.S. and 300 in Mexico.It said its new name reflects its diverse business interests in pipelines, power generation and energy storage operations in the three countries. TransCanada vowed to keep headquarters in Calgary and said it plans to continue trading under the symbol TRP on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges if shareholders approve the name change at its next annual meeting.On its website, TransCanada says it was founded in 1951 to develop the TransCanada Pipeline to bring natural gas from Western Canada to eastern customers. The pipeline is now called the Canadian Mainline. “Whether they know us as TC Energy in English, TC Energie in French, or TC Energia in Spanish, the communities where we operate can continue to count on us to follow through on our commitments and live up to our values of safety, integrity, responsibility and collaboration in everything we do.”The name change was announced a day after rallies were staged in cities across Canada in support of northern B.C. Indigenous people who are trying to stop a TransCanada subsidiary from building the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline project through disputed territory.“Some investors have grown leery of investing in Canada. I think this is a way to de-emphasize Canada, quite frankly,” said Jennifer Rowland, a St. Louis-based analyst for Edward Jones, noting delays in building new oil pipelines led to Alberta imposing crude production constraints on its producers.“Removing Canada from its name is a way to remind investors it’s not just a Canadian company, with some of the challenges we’re seeing in Canada.”She said the name change recalls the move by Calgary-based EnCana to rebrand itself with a lower-case “C” in 2010, thus de-emphasizing its Canadian roots.But Calgary-based analyst Matthew Taylor of Tudor Pickering Holt & Co., said he accepts the company’s explanation, adding the move has been talked about for some time.center_img CALGARY, A.B. – A planned move by TransCanada Corp. to change its name to TC Energy will help it attract investors who are “leery” of putting money in anything Canadian given the country’s recent difficulty in building energy projects, a U.S.-based financial analyst said Wednesday.But the company and a Canadian financial analyst disagreed, saying the name change recognizes that TransCanada has grown outside the country, with moves including its recent US$13-billion purchase of U.S. natural gas transporter Columbia Pipeline Group and a growing list of projects in Mexico.“While our strategy and priorities remain the same, we believe the new name will help to further unite our employees and will enable us to better connect with our diverse stakeholders,” said chief executive Russ Girling in a news release on Wednesday.last_img read more

Joe Barton on his management career

first_imgJoey Barton officially retired from playing football in the summer but has revealed he’d been planning to enter management for years.Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton discussed quitting football and the first steps he took towards management.“For me it has been a case of years of thinking, planning and anticipating what you were going to do coming to fruition,” he told Sky Sports.“And then all those best-laid plans going right out the window!“Everything you think you’ll face you do and then more, but it has been really enjoyable and every day is a real learning experience.“I don’t think anything can ever prepare you for it. It’s a role that varies from club to club and you can have all manner of things going on in any given day.“You really have to think about the ramifications of any decision or any interaction.”LEICESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 28: Joey Barton, Manager of Fleetwood Town reacts during the Carabao Cup Second Round match between Leicester City and Fleetwood Town at The King Power Stadium on August 28, 2018 in Leicester, England.

Medina – April 30, 2019 The English midfielder talked how he was signed by owner Mike Ashley and how he was frustrated after a while with the Magpies.It has been a good start to life as a manager for Barton. Fleetwood Town are 12th in the League One table. And the for the rookie manager, it’s been a learning curve as their form has tailed off in the last few weeks.“Getting the job was a case of timing and opportunity,” Barton said. “Fleetwood were changing managers and wanted to speak with me, and I couldn’t refuse that opportunity.“It has been a bit of a baptism of fire because I didn’t really know much about the level and there were a lot of grounds I hadn’t visited before this season.“But it’s the perfect breeding ground for me and a place where I know I can fulfill my potential.“It’s enough out of the spotlight to be able to make mistakes and learn from them, while also not getting too much praise when you do really get it right.”last_img read more

As there is not yet a lieutenancy in our region, at the instance of Archbishop of Nassau, Archbishop Patrick C. Pinder, STD, CMG, has been included with those states, which comprise the Order’s Eastern Lieutenancy of the United States, the Catholic Church in The Bahamas having historical ties with the Church in New York.Admission into the Order means taking on a commitment for life to be a witness to the Faith, to lead an exemplary Christian life of continuing charity in support of the Christian communities in the Holy Land, and to maintain the true charitable commitment of a Christian. The purpose of an individual in joining the Order is to serve the Catholic Church and to support the efforts of the Church and the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem to maintain the Christian presence in the Holy Land.Within the Catholic Church, members of the Order are entitled to use the courtesy titles “Sir” and “Lady” (or “Dame” with effect from 2017).

San Diego selected by Trump administration for drone testing program

first_img May 10, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, AP Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News, Trending FacebookTwitter Posted: May 10, 2018 San Diego selected by Trump administration for drone testing programcenter_img BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — San Diego was named as one of a select few cities named by the Trump Administration to participate in a national drone testing program.U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao on Wednesday announced 10 sites for a test program aimed at increasing the use of unmanned aircraft for projects that range from monitoring crops and oil pipelines in North Dakota to applying mosquito-killing treatments in Florida and package deliveries in Tennessee.President Donald Trump signed a directive last year to establish the “innovation zones” that allow exemptions to some drone regulations, such as flying over people, nighttime flights and flights where the aircraft can’t be seen by the operator. States, communities and tribes selected to participate would devise their own trial programs in partnership with government and industry drone users.“Data gathered from these pilot projects will form the basis of a new regulatory framework to safely integrate drones into our national airspace,” Chao said in a statement.Chao, who called the rapidly developing drone industry the biggest development since the jet age, said about 150 applications were received. Selected were the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; the cities of San Diego, California, and Reno, Nevada; state transportation departments in North Dakota, North Carolina and Kansas; University of Alaska-Fairbanks; the Center for Innovative Technology in Virginia; Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority in Memphis, Tennessee; and the Lee County Mosquito Control District in Fort Meyers, Florida.A statement by San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer is expected Thursday on details of San Diego’s involvement in the program.The Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota has an unmanned aircraft mission. North Dakota Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford said the program will spur more commercial investment and “allow us to explore new uses for unmanned aircraft.” He envisioned drones helping with oil field, flood and weather monitoring, and “finding missing persons.”The unmanned aircraft industry has pushed for relaxed restrictions, and the Trump administration has said current regulations have limited drone use, forcing companies to test overseas.Steven Bradbury, a lawyer for the federal Transportation Department, said drones have caused some “apprehension” with the public but one of the initiative’s biggest goals will be increased “community awareness and acceptance” of unmanned aircraft.Bradbury said there is no direct federal funding for the test program.
