British company lands $30M contract for next-gen US Navy sub

first_img The U.S. Navy has awarded Sheffield Forgemasters, a British heavy engineering firm, a contract worth over 30 million USD for the production of submarine components.  The engineering specialist has confirmed orders for a sequence of castings for the US Ohio submarine replacement program.No further information has been released about the order specifics, but the contracts will provide a much needed body of work for the company, which has been under economic pressure after the collapse of the offshore oil and gas market and in the wake of a global economic downturn.According to British news site Telegraph, the company was recently forced to cut 100 positions from its workforce at the start of the year while the parent company’s revenue suffered a £7.6m loss.Known as the Ohio replacement program, the U.S. Navy’s newest class of nuclear ballistic missile submarines (SSBN(X)) will be named Columbia after the name of the first vessel in the class, USNI News recently reported.“Work has already started on these orders and the first parts will complete in 2016 with another tranche of components anticipated to follow in 2017, providing work for our Melt Shop, Foundry and Machine Shops. These are complex components and require detailed modeling and manufacturing to highly specific tolerances,” Graham Honeyman, chief executive at Sheffield Forgemasters International, said.“These orders provide a boost for our Brightside Lane operations as we work towards our business turnaround plan. We hope to build on the success of these orders as our teams search out greater opportunities for product diversification and services in a challenging global market,” Honeyman added.The project has been granted full approval by the UK Government.

Sainsbury’s overhauls bakery lines in Taste the Difference revamp

first_imgSainsbury’s has relaunched its entire Taste the Difference (TTD) range with a whole host of new bakery products in the offing.The new premium range, in all stores from 22 September, will feature 1,000 products – 300 of which are brand new – as well as redesigned packaging.Sue Ogden, Sainsbury’s category product manager – bakery, told British Baker that the entire TTD bakery range is changing in terms of its look and feel, “as well as step-changing product quality”. “In total, there will be 94 all-year-round and 23 new or improved seasonal TTD products in bakery alone, which is the biggest launch we have ever done,” she said.The relaunch was prompted by feedback from consumers, which revealed they wanted the TTD products to be “bolder and more innovative”. “Our customers’ tastes are constantly evolving and we feel that the relaunch mirrors these changes,” Ogden added.Some of the new hero products on offer include croissants, which will now be made with Charentes butter; a Gruyère and red onion focaccia, and Aegean tomato and mature cheddar focaccia, both of which are made with a ‘biga’ (a type of pre-ferment used in Italian baking) to help develop the flavour and give a soft open, texture; and a Belgian white chocolate and raspberry cake. A campagne grain baguette, and a wholegrain, oat and barley loaf will be new to the in-store bakery range. Ogden said Sainsbury’s has worked closely with its existing supply base, and has gone back to basics to really understand the recipes, to maximise the flavour and quality of its products in order to set it apart from other premium ranges. “The price structure has remained broadly the same, although where products have been completely changed, then prices have been changed to reflect this,” explained Ogden. “The overall message is that they are great products at great prices.”The retailer would not put a figure on the “significant investment”, but said it was confident it could recoup its investment through increased sales.>>Ocado brings in own-label baked goodslast_img read more

Hedge funds hope to salvage Greek gains despite turmoil

first_imgRisk-taking is the primary order of business at major hedge funds, and as investors put the Greek situation into perspective this week, the potential for near-terms losses on Greek positions appears to be part of the lumpy return profile many hedge funds generate as they search for big winners.Hedge funds are at the sharp point of the Greek spear.Many have bet that Greek politicians and EU technocrats will avoid a Grexit.Since late 2014, for example, Greenlight Capital, the fund managed by founder David Einhorn, has discussed Greece at several investment forums.The firm has reportedly been one of the largest investors in Greek bank stocks.In a conference call this spring, Einhorn indicated that the firm invested in Greek bank equity through warrants to minimise its cash exposure while preserving potentially significant upside participation.“There’s a wide range of possible outcomes there relating specifically to our position,” he said.“There’s a lot of leverage to the upside if the situation resolves favourably and the warrants go into the money.”A spokesman for the Greenlight hedge fund declined to comment on the firm’s Greek positions.While a Grexit is not inevitable, fundamental changes are taking place; the current crisis will reshape the Greek economic and political landscape, as well as the broader EU financial order.Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras may have pushed EU, German and IMF officials too far, says Don Steinbrugge, managing partner at alternatives consultancy Agecroft Partners.“It’s very, very sad for the Greek people,” he said.Greek equity and fixed income markets are going to have difficulty attracting capital, and while a buying opportunity could exist several months from now for long-term investors, adjustment to the financial situation will be difficult for Greek markets and citizens, he said.With the country having missed a €1.6bn payment to the IMF on Tuesday night, Greece is technically in default.Steinbrugge said: “You’ve got to take a fairly hard line. If you forgive Greece, there are going to be a lot of other countries that want to be forgiven also.”Traditional investors took this week’s breakdown in talks between the EU and Greece in stride.Jack Ablin, CIO at BMO Private Bank, said a Greek default would probably not trigger a global financial crisis.While Greece’s €250bn in debt “is nothing to sneeze at”, he said more than three-quarters of it was held by  international bailout funds, with private investors holding only €38bn of Greek government bonds, down from €150bn following a write-down and debt swap in 2012.With debt talks in limbo until after Sunday’s referendum on creditors’ terms, Greece now looks likely to miss a much bigger, €3.5bn repayment to the European Central Bank due on 20 July, and ratings agency Fitch says it views a default on government debt held by private creditors as “probable”. While the outcome remains to be seen, Ablin said, “we have to suppose that, after reading the headlines for four years, the people owning such speculative debt are hedge funds comfortable that their bonds are not of the Procter & Gamble sleep-at-night variety”. Hedge funds that have bet on Greek government bonds and banks stocks look set to face some near-term losses, but, despite acute concerns at the start of the week, they say careful management of the risk of investing in the market may yet yield gains if Greece and the EU can agree a long-term solution to the fiscal crisis.Hedge funds have made forays into Greece for the last two years, seeking opportunities in situations carrying more risk than traditional investors accept.Third Point’s Dan Loeb started the Hellenic Recovery Fund in 2013, and Randy Smith, who runs Alden Global Capital, started a Greek fund in December 2014.John Paulson invested in Greek bank stocks, while Perry Capital and others reportedly purchased Greek debt.last_img read more

Mane to cost Barcelona world record £225m fee this summer – report

first_img Loading… One thing that could play into Real’s hands is that Barcelona would have to pay more. As per the Mirror they have an agreement with the Reds that they will pay £89 million above the market value for any of their players until summer 2021. With Transfermarkt currently valuing the Senegal forward at £135 million it would mean the Catalan giants smashing the £198 million that PSG paid them for Neymar to get their hands on Mane. The agreement is in place because of the Spanish champion’s move for Philippe Coutinho in January 2018. After spending several months trying to sign the midfielder. Barca finally agreed a £140 million fee him.Advertisement Part of the deal included the clause that meant the La Liga leaders had to pay a huge premium on any other players from Anfield until next summer. Quique Setien’s side were hoping to add a forward in January after the injury to Luis Suarez disrupted their season but they failed to get anyone in. Ousmane Dembele’s injury after the transfer window was closed gave them the chance to make an emergency signing and they brought in Martin Braithwaite. Suarez’s age and Dembele’s injury record means that Barca could still be looking to add another forward to their side in the summer, despite the money spent on Antoine Griezmann last year. However rivals Real Madrid may have even more reason to be looking for a world class forward, having still failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals.Hazard hasn’t had a happy first season in Spain.Read Also: Fans mock Man City for copying Real Madrid travelling outfitEden Hazard’s injury problems, and lack of form, have led to the issues at the Bernabeu and Luka Jovic has also proved to be a flop so far, with just two goals in La Liga and Zinedine Zidane doesn’t seem to trust the former Frankfurt striker.Mane has continued to be integral to Liverpool’s success and the 27-year-old has scored 13 goals in the league and provided six assists for his teammates.Right now it doesn’t really make sense for any of Liverpool’s players to leave Merseyside but the allure of Real and Barca always seems to make a difference. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Barcelona would have to pay a whopping £225 million to sign Sadio Mane this summer, smashing the world record for a transfer currently held by Neymar. The Liverpool forward has been linked with a move to Barca or rivals Real Madrid this summer, along with teammate Mo Salah, and the Res would be desperate to keep hold of him.
