    The Avanti Group is advising clients on Alibaba Holding Ltd as discussions continue regarding the company’s IPO listing currently in dispute over retaining control of China’s largest e commerce company that could see the highly anticipated IPO of Alibaba Holding Ltd move its listing to the United States. The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to what may see China’s largest e-commerce company listing for initial public offering outside of Hong Kong due to listing restrictions. As the markets have watched on patiently, talks designed to list the largest of China’s e commerce companies, Alibaba on the Hong Kong Stock exchange may have fallen through over dispute over control to list different classes of shares. The company, which has seen in recent months valuations of between $105 and S120 billion dollars, was earmarked to be the former British colony’s largest IPO since 2010. Alibaba’s valuation makes it the third largest internet based company in the world after Google and Amazon, estimated to have been capable of raising as much as $12 billion in its floatation in Hong Kong. This would have been an exceedingly modest level given the company’s expected operating profit of $7.1 billion in 2014. The company already accounts for 70% of all package deliveries in China valued at $163 bi...
  • The Avanti Group is advising clients on India’s largest energy company, Oil and Gas Corp. as they look likely to continue its acquisition drive by expanding its stake in a key Brazilian oil field. The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to new acquisition developments at India’s largest energy company as competition develops from the Sinochem Group. Perhaps with memories of its defeat in Kazakhstan, India’s ONCG is again going against China’s Sinochem Group in efforts to increase their access to important oil and gas sources. Earlier this year in July, ONGC missed out on its $5 billion bid to purchase the rights to a significant oil field when the Government of Kazakhstan exercised its own rights to the field and subsequently on sold the holding to the Chinese company. This time however the playing field would seem to favor the Indian oil giant as Sinochem makes a $1.54 billion offer for a 35 percent stake in the Brazilian Parque das Conchas field from ONGC’s local partner Petroleo Brasileiro SA. As an existing stakeholder in the field with 15 percent holding, ONGC has the right to refuse and better the deal with Sinochem. Early reports indicate that they will indeed do so in partnership with Royal Dutch Shell PLC, the field’s operator and 50 percent stakeholder. “Both the Chinese a...

The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to what has been described as an opportunistic purchase by Jarden Corp, acquiring brand name scented candle maker and retailer Yankee Candle for $1.75 billion. The deal is reportedly a straight cash transaction between Jarden and the fund that owns Yankee, managed by Madison Dearborn Partners LLC, which acquired Yankee in 2007 for $1.4 billion. “As a product line it makes sense for Jarden to acquire Yankee as their sales and supply network are both well established and performing rather well. For Yankee it gives a greater sense of stability when your owner is retailing such a diverse range of products. Furthermore, it gives Yankee automatic access to Jarden’s international retail supply chain, which of course brings enhanced opportunity for expansion,” said Andrew Taylor Senior Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions at The Avanti Group. The deal comes to fruition at a opportune time for the two companies, with both experiencing solid growth in earning and vigorous expansion of their retail presence. Yankee who also manufactures potpourri and home décor saw its sales rise 7.4 percent last year...

    The British economy is losing £85.3bn every year to fraud, according to a new report.

    The estimate is far higher than official estimates and highlights the damage fraud is causing to the UK economy. Accountancy firm BDO, which compiled the research, said fraud remains a “challenging and expensive problem” which leads to “less financially stable and profitable companies” as well as “reduced job security and lower disposable incomes for us all”.

    The report is being published just days after 12 men were arrested for allegedly trying to take control of Santander’s computers to steal millions of pounds from the bank.

    BDO said the report is one of the most detailed studies in the world about the total cost of fraud.

    The UK figure has been calculated by studying fraud data from around the world over the last 15 years and establishing what percentage of the world’s GDP is being lost to fraud.

    The report says that 5.47pc of GDP is now being lost to fraud, up by 20pc compared with the average loss of 4.57pc between 1997 and 2007…

(Sinopec) into the fray, Apache has spent a turbulent year in which it has struggled to divest itself of assets in attempts to raise $4 billion to put toward key restructuring projects. The Sinopec deal will see the company acquire its much-needed cash yet retain profitable revenue streams in the joint venture with China’s largest oil refiner. The deal will see Sinopec, which has seen profits surge after its cost cutting and own restructuring drive, buy a 33 percent stake in Apache’s Egyptian oil and gas operations for $3.1 billion. It is expected that the day-to-day business model will be managed as a joint concern between the two companies, something that Sinopec has done with other large stake holdings in resource providers. “There had been a lot of concern for the final outcome of Apache’s efforts, not so much as to whether or not they would raise the required funds a...

The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to Australia’s largest property developer the Lend Lease Group who announced a dramatic change in its fortune in reports to the ASX. The company reports show that Lend Lease has seen a 10 percent rise in operating profit for the year despite some analysts predicting a period of hardship in the Australian property market. The company themselves had been seen to be confirming this assessment when they announced restructuring efforts in June. With Lend Lease’s announcement that net income had risen to AUD 551.6million up from the previous twelve months figures of AUD 501.4million and accompanied by significant reductions in operating costs forecast, no one is left questioning the company’s financial health. The company’s fortunes were boosted by the successful redevelopment of its central city property Barangaroo. “Sometimes analysts just over think a situation. Yes, the market contracted slightly and Lend Lease did what any smart company would do and cut costs. But with all of the substantial profits from their Barangaroo financial district developments literally months away from being realized the company wa...
  • Avanti_logo_177_ The Avanti Group is advising clients of opportunities in Mizuho Financial Group as the Japanese lender continues its cash rich search for acquisitions. The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to “As the Japanese central bank policy designed to curb inflation continues to limit lending margins for the countries banks, many are driven to look for investments overseas. The latest to do so, Mizuho Financial is reportedly eyeing two possibilities in Thailand and Japan with a $5 billion war chest to achieve their goals. The two banks are TMB Plc. of Thailand and PT Bank Pan Indonesia,” said Andrew Taylor Senior Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions at The Avanti Group. The average net interest margin in Japan is a mere 1.09 percent, which is one third that of Thailand and only a sixth that of Indonesia, the highest in Asia. Despite the higher returns on offer from the Indonesian lender, most analysts favor the Thai TMB as the front-runner for Mizuho’s investment citing greater existing trade between the two countries as the deciding factor. “Many of Mizuho’s Japanese clients are already doing business in Thailand with manufacturing concerns heavily represented and with the majority using TMB banking services to facilitate their banking requirements the acquisition makes for a natural...

The increase comes as Lenovo expands its already large presence within the tablet and smart phone markets.

This is a great example of a company changing with the times to meet the needs of a diversifying market, in this case, when you are the largest PC manufacturer in the world and the market begins to slow.

The Avanti Group the equities research house based in Tokyo, providing professional trading and investment research solutions to institutional and private investors across the globe have recently drawn their investor’s attention to Carrefour SA the dominant player in the European retail market as they make announcement regarding their long expected plans to push forward with expansions in Africa. The French based retailers has had a record year to date under its new CEO Georges Plassat with share value surging 72% in spite of tough economic conditions faced by the retail sector. The company has undergone major restructuring over the last two year, exiting markets that have failed to deliver either market share dominance or meet the company’s strict self-imposed bottom line on operating margins. After their departure from Colombia and Greece, Carrefour have spent time consolidating their French market which still accounts for over 55% of the company’s annual turnover. “They have played out their long term strategy well by pulling back from their weakest markets and re-capitalizing in their strongest, placing themselves ideally for growth. The company’s plans for Africa show that a lot of thought has gone into this venture, especially in regards to the potential obstacles faced by retailers in such markets,” said Andrew Taylor Senior Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions ...
