Premier Foods cuts debt with Quorn division sale

first_img Premier Foods, the UK’s largest food producer, has agreed to sell its meat-free business for £205m to cut its debt.It has agreed to sell the unit, which includes its range of Quorn vegetarian products and Cauldron meat-free sausages, to Exponent Private Equity and Intermediate Capital Group.But the company, which makes Bisto gravy and Branston pickle, also said it is prepared to make further disposals if the price was right as it reduces a debt pile that had soared to £1.37bn by June last year.“There’s nothing in my portfolio that I’m saying is non-core, for sale, but I am open-minded to disposals,” said Chief Financial Officer Jim Smart in a telephone interview.Premier Foods’ shares rose by 5.68 per cent to 23.61p at 8:53am before falling back to 22.07 by the afternoon.The disposal is designed to help reduce Premier’s debt as a proportion of earnings, but analysts expressed doubt at the choice of disposal.“It (the sale) is positive in that it reduces the debt, the leverage in the business, but you could argue that Quorn and meat-free was one of the growth areas of the business and that they’re having to sell the family silver,” said Shore Capital analyst Darren Shirley.Smart said Premier, which in November confirmed it had also received approaches for its canning operations, was focused on reducing its debt and it could pursue further asset sales if they would help bring it closer to its target debt level.“If there are other people interested in other bits of the business we’re open-minded … but it would have to be full compensation for our shareholders and it would have to be at a ratio which would make some further contribution to reducing that debt-to-earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) ratio.”Analysts at JP Morgan Cazenove said Premier Food’s ability to cut its debt remained a key concern for the market.“Our view remains that if it were to convince the market it can reduce its debt, there could be considerable upside to the shares given the leverage to the equity valuation,” the broker said in a note.Shares in Premier have risen 24 per cent since 3 December when it confirmed it was in advanced talks with two parties regarding the sale of Quorn, with one of the suitors believed to be the world’s biggest food group Nestle.

Future Faces: Jan Serfontein and Iain Henderson

first_img“My family are rugby-mad. Dad played rugby for Academy RFC in Belfast and I played there until I went to study at Queen’s University, Belfast.”Although a handy player as a youngster, it’s only in the past year that his career has been fast-tracked. “I was picked up for Ulster U20 and pretty soon that led to a national call-up, so I’m thrilled,” he says.Henderson was part of the Ireland U20 squad that this year secured their best-ever JWC finish of fifth, beating eventual winners South Africa in the pool stages. “We were chuffed with our Junior World Championship performances because you only get one shot at it. We really gelled and it showed in our performances.”Next up for Henderson is to break into the Ulster squad. “I want to get a look in the match-day squad. So far the likes of Chris Henry and David Drake, the Ulster Academy fitness coach, have kept an eye out for us and I’m loving every minute.”Rugby World Verdict: Henderson has already proved he has the ability for the big occasion.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Ireland Under 20 Headshots 24/1/2012Christopher FarrellMandatory Credit ©INPHO/Cathal Noonan *** Local Caption *** Jan Serfontein(Blue Bulls)Jan SerfonteinIF THE perfect day existed in rugby, Springbok U20 centre Jan Serfontein went close to achieving it on 22 June. Not only did he win the Junior World Championship in front of 35,000 compatriots, but in the process he defeated rivals New Zealand 22-16 and touched down with the crucial score.It capped a superb campaign from the powerful inside-centre from Port Elizabeth, who succeeded George Ford in being voted IRB Junior Player of the Year. Serfontein, 19, is the first South African to win the award, and the first to receive an IRB age-grade honour since Pat Barnard was named the IRB U21 Player of the Year in 2002. Chatting to the amiable youngster, he is humility personified. “It was incredible to win the JWC and to score the winning try just topped the occasion off.”Schooled at the prestigious Grey College in Port Elizabeth, which has produced Bismarck du Plessis and Frans Steyn, Serfontein has had to get used to attention of his own.“I got noticed after winning the JWC but luckily I’m back at the Blue Bulls now, so no one is making a fuss, which is how I like it.” As for his first objective, it’s simply to make the Bulls squad. “I’m still young and I have Springboks Wynand Olivier and JJ Engelbrecht to contend with. I must be patient.”As an admirer of Sonny Bill Williams, he relishes being close to the action. “I like No 12 as I get my hands on the ball, but I’m not too bothered as long as I’m in the team.”Rugby World Verdict: Another stellar talent from the Grey College production line. Owain JonesIain Henderson(Ulster)Iain Henderson (inpho)IAIN HENDERSON made quite an impact on his Pro12 debut for Ulster in May. Early in the second half, receiving the ball in midfield and with quick feet that belied his 6ft 6in, 18st 1lb frame, he managed to evade four Munster defenders to stretch out and score in a manner Stephen Ferris would have been proud of.So where was the wild celebration from the Ireland U20 lock? “I was absolutely shattered, but that’s what it should be like if you’re giving your all.” Wise words coming from a 20-year-old but unsurprising given his rugby background.

Rugby’s Greatest: Bobby Windsor

first_imgThey don’t make ’em like Bobby Windsor these days. The Welsh hooker played rugby with an unrivalled ferocity, a trait that thrust him into the game’s highest bracket TAGS: The Greatest Players At school in Newport, Windsor once scored 56 goals in a season. He took that skill and pace with him to the rugby field, scoring a try on his Wales debut against Australia in his breakthrough campaign, 1973-74.Over the next five-and-a-half years, he was to earn 28 successive Welsh caps and become a double Lion and double Grand Slammer.Viet Gwent: the legendary Wales front row of Graham Price, Bobby Windsor and Charlie Faulkner (Getty)His club feats were no less notable, Windsor packing down between Graham Price and Charlie Faulkner in the famous ‘Viet Gwent’ Pontypool front row that shared many a triumph on the international stage. The trio played together for Wales 19 times and also for the Lions in Fiji on 16 August 1977 (the day that Elvis died). Major teams: Cross Keys, Cardiff, Pontypool Country: WalesTest span: 1973-79Wales caps: 28 (28 starts)Lions caps: 5 (5 starts)Test points: 4 (1T)Rugby’s Greatest: Bobby WindsorHe says he was always hungry as a kid and hooker Bobby Windsor played his rugby with that same ferocious appetite for Wales and the Lions during a golden age for both teams.At 16st-plus, he was built like a prop at a time of light hookers, and on the 1974 Lions tour of South Africa he proved he was one of the great scrummaging front-rowers. The Lions would take the Boks so low in the scrum that Windsor would sometimes hook with his head before driving over them, there being no law then about keeping shoulders above the hips.As able to take a punch as deliver one, hence his ‘Iron Duke’ nickname, Windsor was made for that tour because of his abrasiveness and love of the fight.Eddie Butler, his team-mate at Pontypool, calls him the best he ever played with. “Some hookers are good at some parts of their trade and not so good at others. Bobby was a master of them all,” said the former Wales No 8. “He was also vicious, the most cold-hearted brute you would never wish to see standing over you at a ruck.” Blood and thunder: Bobby Windsor kicks upfield against Bay of Plenty during the 1977 Lions tour (Getty) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Advised to retire in 1980 because of a back injury, Windsor played for another seven years, until the age of 41. Legendary coach Ray Prosser hailed him as the only tight forward he’s seen who could change the course of a game. Wales have never seen his like again.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

Community radio reporter shot dead in southwestern Colombia

first_img Follow the news on Colombia News AmericasColombia Protecting journalists DisappearancesFreedom of expressionViolence Organisation Receive email alerts News Reports Abelardo Liz, an indigenous reporter working for Emisora Nación Nasa, a community radio station that is part of the Voz del Viento media collective, died as he was being rushed to hospital after sustaining several gunshot injuries while covering a protest against land privatization in the town of Corinto.The protest degenerated after Corinto’s mayor sounded the alarm and soldiers, regular police and a special riot police tried to disperse the demonstrators, who had occupied two privately-owned farms in the town. It is not yet clear who fired the shots that fatally injured Liz, as well as killing an indigenous activist and injuring several demonstrators.“The national authorities must shed all possible light on Abelardo Liz’s death, quickly identify those responsible for this attack, and investigate the circumstances in which the army intervened,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “The conditions for media work are deplorable in Cauca. The Colombian government has a duty to restore the rule of law and guarantee the safety of all journalists in this department.”Efigenia Vásquez, another community radio reporter, was killed in similar circumstances in 2017 in Cauca, where nearly a quarter of the population is indigenous. Cauca has for years seen repeated land disputes and clashes between armed groups (the former FARC and ELN guerrillas and the Clan del Golfo neo-paramilitary group), drug traffickers (Los Rastrojos) and the army. The media are extremely vulnerable and are constantly the targets of threats and attacks, as RSF has often reported.RSF is also very concerned about the safety of journalists in Meta, a department in Colombia’s eastern plains, especially Fernando Osorio and Edilson Álvarez, who have been the targets of several attacks this year.In the past two weeks, they have reported being subjected to intimidation and arbitrary detention by soldiers in connection with their attempts to cover army activity in the region for Voces del Guayabero, a local media outlet.Colombia is ranked 130th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

International community, media urged to take action in response to murders of Lebanese journalists

first_img Follow the news on Lebanon LebanonMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Help by sharing this information News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders gave a press conference today at the headquarters of the An-Nahar daily newspaper in Beirut to reiterate its condemnation of the murders of journalists Samir Kassir and Gebran Tuéni in bombings on 2 June and 12 December, and the maiming of fellow journalist May Chidiac in a bombing on 25 September.The press organisation’s secretary-general, Robert Ménard, Tuéni’s daughters, Nayla et Michèle Tuéni, Kassir’s widow, Gisèle Khoury, and Khoury’s daughters, Mayssa and Liana, all spoke at the press conference, recounting their personal memories of the victims and issuing an appeal to the international community.Nayla Tuéni, herself a young journalist, urged the Lebanese judicial authorities to speed up their investigations. She also called on the country’s press to launch a major campaign to try to end the wave of killings that has shaken Lebanon since October 2004. She said everyone knew her father was under threat and therefore the entire country was responsible for his death.Khoury said: “Lebanon is the only Arab country that enjoys a degree of freedom and this is the reason why journalists are being killed. We call on all our colleagues throughout the world to react, so that the deaths of Gebran and Samir can strengthen our determination.”Kassir’s daughter, Liana, appealed to Jean-Louis Bruguière, the French anti-terrorist judge in charge of the French investigation into the death of her father, who had French and Lebanese dual citizenship. “Judge Bruguière, we are waiting for you,” she said, looking firmly at the TV cameras.Ménard voiced “disappointment” at UN security council resolution 1644 extending the mandate of the international commission that is investigating former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s assassination, as it authorises the commission just to provide technical assistance to the Lebanese government and leaves the government in charge of the investigations into all the political killings and bombings in Lebanon since October 2004.“If the United Nations do not do anything more, this wave of violence will inevitably continue,” Ménard said. “We are going to appeal to all the international bodies such as the Human Rights Commission, the Council of Europe and the European Parliament.”Ménard added: “The Lebanese media must also mobilise more to combat this violence, of which they are the first victims.”This has been a black year for the Lebanese press. The first journalist to die, Kassir, was a correspondent for the French television station TV5 and an columnist for An-Nahar. Then LBC television presenter May Chidiac was maimed by a bomb in September. All this took place during the extended crisis resulting from Hariri’s assassination on 14 February. Finally, the death four days ago of Tuéni, the CEO of An-Nahar and a member of the Lebanese parliament, has confirmed the worst fears of Lebanon’s journalists. Lebanese journalist found shot dead in car Reporters Without Borders gave a press conference today at the headquarters of the An-Nahar daily newspaper in Beirut to reiterate its condemnation of the murders of journalists Samir Kassir and Gebran Tuéni in bombings on 2 June and 12 December, and the maiming of fellow journalist May Chidiac in a bombing on 25 September.
