007 carmaker Aston Martin gears up for London stock market float

first_imgLondon, Aug 29 (AFP) Aston Martin today said it plans to float one quarter of the British company on the London stock market, as demand rises worldwide for the luxury brand’s cars favoured by fictional spy James Bond.Full details of the initial public offering will be published on September 20, Aston Martin said in a statement, with reports noting that the company could be valued up to Pounds 5.0 billion (USD 6.4 billion or 5.5 billion euros).”Today’s announcement represents a key milestone in the history of the company, which is reporting strong financial results and increased global demand for its award-winning sports cars,”Aston Martin chief executive Andy Palmer said in the statement.The century-old carmaker, based in Gaydon in central England, is controlled by Italian private equity fund Investindustrial and Kuwaiti investors.German carmaker Daimler will meanwhile keep its near 5.0-per cent stake in the group, Aston Martin said.While Britain has a strong car manufacturing industry, the brands have fallen into foreign ownership over recent decades, with Germany’s BMW buying Rolls-Royce and Mini, Volkswagen taking control of Bentley — and Jaguar-Land Rover falling into the hands of Indian giant Tata Motors.And while the UK’s key car manufacturing has warned about potential Brexit fallout, Aston Martin boss Palmer today said his company was well shielded ahead of the country’s formal EU departure in March next year.”The benefit of being a luxury company is that we are relatively impervious to those kinds of changes,” he told BBC radio.However, he noted that as a precaution, the group was increasing stockpiles of its engines in case of possible border delays once Britain exits the EU in March next year.advertisementEarlier this year, Palmer said Aston Martin could in the future supply engines to Formula One under the leadership of new owner Liberty.Founded in London in 1913, Aston Martin rose to fame thanks largely to its DB5 sports car, a favourite of Sean Connery, the original movie Bond.Analysts said that with a valuation of about Pounds 5.0 billion, Aston Martin would find itself at the top end of London’s second tier FTSE 250 index.Also today, Aston Martin revealed that its revenues rose eight per cent in the first six months of 2018 to pounds 445 million.The performance was driven from sales of special edition vehicles, including the Vanquish Zagato family and DB4 GT Continuation models.The average sale price of all Aston Martin models increased by eight percent to Pounds 167,000 in the reporting period.Earlier this year, a limited-edition midnight blue Vanquish owned by James Bond actor Daniel Craig’s sold at auction for USD 468,500.Last year, Aston Martin made its first annual net profit since 2010 as it sold more than 5,000 cars.The group said it is looking to make almost 10,000 units in 2020.It currently sells almost one-third of its cars in the UK, a quarter in the rest of Europe, Middle East andAfrica combined, a further quarter in the Americas and the remainder throughout the Asia Pacific region.(AFP) RUPRUPlast_img read more

Yogi Adityanath takes lead role in Gorakhpur Ravi Kishan plays supporting cast

first_imgGorakhpur (UP): In the battle to redeem lost pride in the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat, popular Bhojpuri actor and BJP candidate Ravi Kishan is playing second fiddle as Yogi Adityanath takes centre stage in the electoral fight. Sharing dais with the chief minister during poll rallies, the BJP candidate is often seen standing alongside the ‘maharaj’ with folded hands. Regarded as the fiefdom of the Gorakhnath peeth, the seat with 19.54 lakh voters has 10 candidates in the fray. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework However, a direct contest appears on the cards between BJP candidate Kishan and alliance nominee, Rambhuwal Nishad of the SP. Though Yogi Adityanath won the seat from 1998 to 2017, the shock defeat during the 2018 bypolls was a massive loss of face for the ruling party, coming months after its emphatic win in the 2017 Assembly elections. The election on the seat, this time round, is being treated by the party and loyalists as an opportunity to avenge the humiliation and restore faith in the leadership of Yogi Adityanath. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen “The fight on the seat is to retain the pride of Maharaj…the Hindu Yuva Vahini and BJP are one in the contest this time round and are in the campaigning as one unit,” zonal vice president of BJP Satyendra Singh said. Leading the campaign from the front is the chief minister himself, who is camping here for the May 19 polling in the last phase and has addressed over two dozen rallies. This week, he will be holding a big road show in Gorakhpur city along with BJP president Amit Shah. Lending all out support is the Hindu Yuva Vahini, founded by Adityanath, which has been actively involved in the campaigning with the CM asking for presence of one worker each of the BJP and the HYV at all booths. Since the defeat in the bypoll had also been attributed to the low turn out, the major focus is on increasing polling percentage in Gorakhpur city. Local BJP leader Rahul Srivastav said instructions have been issued to bring voters out to cast votes on polling day. “Election is not being fought by Ravi Kishan. It is being fought by Yogi,” said Manish Prasad, a vegetable vendor. Initially it was the ‘outsider’ tag which Kishan had to face but he fought and overcame it following his visit to his native Maamkhor village from where his ancestors migrated two- three generations ago to neighbouring Jaunpur. Kishan is also banking on his popularity, getting his selfies clicked with youth and women. His approachability is giving the BJP a good head start and now it is “One Mission Ravi Kishan” slogan which has become common. “Yogiji has brought me here. We are hoping for a record win now,” Kishan stresses. The saffron party can also draw solace from the fact that the giant killer in the Gorakhpur bypoll Praveen Kumar Nishad has now switched over to the BJP and has been fielded from Sant Kabir Nagar parliamentary constituency in eastern UP. That the alliance candidate Ram Bhuwal Nishad belongs to the dominant fishermen caste — around 3.5 lakh here — is a fact that suits the BSP-SP who have worked on their arithmetic well. The joint meeting of BSP and SP at the Champa Devi Park on Monday witnessed a massive turnout even in sweltering heat. “We will go by what behenji asks us to do…,” said Shrawan Kumar, a BSP supporter, who attended the rally. “Ram Bhuwal Nishad is an experienced politician…he knows all about electoral battles and how they are won…We have a good support base among all castes,” Samajwadi Party leader Zafar Amin Dakku said. Besides other issues, the alliance is raising local issues including death of children in the BRD Medical College Hospital, charging it was due to government apathy, he said. “We are confident that history will repeat itself and the alliance will once again be pulling down the BJP fortress here. I have the support of the poor and the oppressed,” says alliance candidate Ram Bhuwal Nishad.last_img read more
