Posted on by

first_imgCoffee Cloud and METRO Cash & Carry have signed a cooperation agreement, thanks to which the startup founder Miroslav Kovač will receive support in expanding its business to the HoReCa market.METRO Cash & Carry is the leading wholesaler on the Croatian HoReCa market and cooperates with more than 20.000 hotels, restaurants, cafes and catering companies, so this is one big step forward for Coffee Cloud.By the way, Coffee Cloud, IoT (Internet of Things) device that is installed in an espresso coffee machine is intended for caterers, hoteliers and cafe owners.

Singaporean sovereign investor buys stake in Rothesay Life

Posted on by

first_imgTay Lim Hock, president of GIC Special Investments, expressed confidence in the current Rothesay management team.“We also believe in the long-term potential of the expanding market for pension insurance buyouts and buy-ins,” he added.MassMutual CIO M Timothy Corbett said the investment was compatible with its search for long-term returns.“Demand for risk management from UK defined benefit pension schemes offers significant growth opportunities, and our ongoing investment in Rothesay Life supports our view the company is well-positioned to capitalise on this opportunity,” he said.The parties did not disclose a price for the transaction, which is subject to approval from regulators, including the UK’s Prudential Regulation Authority.Rothesay has written almost £1.4bn in business this year, agreeing buy-ins with Philips and aerospace firm Cobham, as well as a buyout with the UK branch of Intercontinental Hotels.The firm, established in 2007, expanded its hold on the pension insurance market in 2010 by acquiring rival Paternoster. Singaporean sovereign wealth fund GIC is to acquire a 28.5% stake in UK pension insurer Rothesay Life, months after Goldman Sachs confirmed it was looking to sell part of the wholly owned subsidiary.In addition to GIC, funds managed by Blackstone will also buy 28.5% of shares, and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance will acquire 7%, leaving Goldman as the largest shareholder, with a 36% stake.Chief executive Addy Loudiadis said she was delighted three “substantial” investors had been attracted to the company.“With over £12bn (€14.1bn) of accumulated liabilities, we have now successfully diversified our shareholder base as the next step in our journey,” she said.last_img read more

Japanese snow shortage puts Tokyo 2020 heat prevention plan at risk

Posted on by

first_img “I don’t ever recall experiencing a no-snow winter like this one,” said Mutsumi Seki, a Minamiuonuma city employee who is in charge of the snow storage facility, to Kyodo News. “We welcome any amount of snow, but we don’t need any more rain.” Heat is a major concern for Tokyo 2020 officials as more than 50 deaths were recorded in Japan because of rising temperatures in July last year. The Olympic Games are scheduled for between July 24 and August 9. Other heat prevention measures which will be used include cooling mist sprays and shading tents. Fans could be allowed to bring their own bottled water into venues under certain conditions, which is normally against the rules. Snow machines have already been trialled at Tokyo 2020 test events. The fears over the heat have prompted organisers to controversially switch the marathons and race walking to Sapporo, more than 800 kilometres to the north of Tokyo. Read Also:Nigeria’s Para power-lifter vows to set Olympic record in Japan Other events have been given earlier start times. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Plans to use snow to keep fans cool at Tokyo 2020 are under threat due to a shortage of supplies. Organisers had intended to use both real and fake snow as part of their efforts to combat the expected high temperatures in the Japanese capital. It was hoped that snow would be transported from the Minamiuonuma ski resort in Japan’s central Niigata Prefecture but there has been a record shortage. Milder temperatures mean that Japan has witnessed its “worst snow season in decades”, Kyodo News reported. A snow storage facility at Minamiuonuma can hold up to 1,600 tonnes of snow but is said to contain only a few centimetres. More than 100 tonnes is thought to be required to make the Tokyo 2020 plan viable, the same as 10 large trucks. Snow was going to be taken to the capital by rail and road and then stored at the Games in tents. “Personal snow packs” could then be handed out to fans at venues. The shortage has severely impacted resorts which have been hit by a decline in visitor numbers. Large amounts of snow are not expected “any time soon”, with the annual Minami Uonuma Snow Festival among the events cancelled.center_img Loading…last_img read more

McDowell challenges Woods

Posted on by

first_img Press Association On a truly world-class leaderboard, Phil Mickelson was a shot behind McDowell after a second straight 67 which almost finished with a hole-in-one, while Steve Stricker was also 10 under and could come to regret giving Woods a putting lesson on Wednesday when the £5.8million event concludes on Sunday. However, Woods was looking in ominously good form as he seeks a seventh win in the event and a 17th WGC title of his career. The 14-time major winner, joint leader overnight after a 66 on Thursday, opened with three pars before picking up shots at the fourth and fifth from close range. Another birdie from seven feet on the seventh took him into the outright lead for the first time, while a wayward drive on the par-five eighth could not prevent another birdie after he pitched to 15ft and coaxed in a curling putt. Out in 32, Woods also birdied the 10th, 11th and 13th before his only bogey of the day on the 14th, but that was soon followed by a 17th birdie of the week – a new career best in the opening two rounds – on the 16th and two closing pars. McIlroy issued a full apology for his shock withdrawal last week on Wednesday, admitting the pain from a wisdom tooth and being in a “bad place mentally” was no excuse for walking off the course after playing eight holes of his second round in seven over par. However, a full weekend working with coach Michael Bannon on a swing flaw had not done the trick, with the 23-year-old admitting there was no quick fix at hand. A two-putt birdie on the first was the ideal start, but McIlroy bogeyed the fourth and sixth before a birdie on the eighth took him out in 36. Four birdies on the back nine raised hopes that the US PGA champion was back on the right track, but a three-putt on the 18th took some of the gloss off a good performance. Overnight joint leader Sergio Garcia (72) and Ian Poulter (70) were among an 11-strong group on six under, but Justin Rose’s hopes of defending his title look to be over after he dropped four shots in his last three holes to lie four under. Rory McIlroy shot his lowest round of the season so far, but fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell is the closest challenger to a rejuvenated Tiger Woods at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami.center_img McIlroy, in the spotlight following his poor start to the year and controversial withdrawal from the Honda Classic last week, added a 69 to his opening 73 to lie two under par, despite missing a tap-in for par on the 18th. But that was still 11 shots adrift of playing partner Woods, who compiled a superb 65 to go with his opening 66 for a two-shot lead over former US Open champion McDowell, who carded a flawless 67. last_img read more
