    Britain considers nationalising South Western Railway contract

    Britain's Department for Transport said the South Western Railway (SWR)contract was not financially sustainable in the long term and it was considering whether to nationalise the network. The DfT said in a statement on Wednesday that while SWR had not yet failed to meet financial commitments, its peformance was such that the government was working on contigency measures. The dire situation at SWR, which connects southern England to London, comes at a time of wider problems within Britain's privatised rail system, following the failure of several high-profile rail contracts and amid consumer complaints over strikes and poor service.

    FirstGroup mulling options for U.S. assets

    The announcement comes less than a month after FirstGroup said it would focus on its core U.S. contracting businesses, which include the First Student school bus service and First Transit transportation service, leading to calls from two top shareholders to sell those assets instead. Coast Capital Management and Robert Tchenguiz had separately asserted that Aberdeen-based FirstGroup's U.S. assets had no synergies with its operations at home, which include a bus and rail division. The company, which last month reported a bigger first-half loss, has already put its iconic North American intercity bus service Greyhound up for sale this year, due to competition from low-cost airlines and a drop in demand.

    Two major FirstGroup shareholders on Monday called for the British bus and train operator to sell its U.S. assets as part of a portfolio overhaul which already includes the planned sale of North American intercity bus service Greyhound.

FirstGroup, which last week reported a bigger first-half loss, has said it would focus on its core contracting business in North America, including the First Student school bus service and First Transit transportation service. Coast Capital, which is FirstGroup's second-biggest shareholder with a more than 10% stake, joined Iranian-born property investor Tchenguiz in calling for it to sell the U.S. assets, saying there were no synergies with its British ones.

    UPDATE 2-FTSE 100 underperforms global peers on 3i drop, sterling gains

    London's FTSE 100 underperformed its major global peers on Thursday, suffering its steepest intra-day drop so far this month as falls in private equity company 3i, stocks trading ex-dividend and a stronger pound hammered the exporter-heavy index. The main index fell 0.8% with 3i Group hitting a five-month low after striking a cautious tone about new investment opportunities and as heavyweight components Sainsbury , Shell and GSK traded without dividend entitlement. The mid-cap FTSE 250 was 0.3% lower, with transport operator FirstGroup dropping nearly 20% on its worst day since May 2018 after a bigger first-half loss due to a charge related to its Greyhound bus line business in the U.S..

    UPDATE 2-FirstGroup losses jump after booking charge on for-sale Greyhound business

    Losses at Britain's FirstGroup rose after it booked a 124 million pound ($159 million) charge on the Greyhound bus business it is trying to sell, as the U.S. intercity service struggles with problems including a drop in immigration-related demand. Aberdeen-based FirstGroup, which runs bus and train services mostly in the U.S. and UK, put Greyhound up for sale earlier this year, partly due to growing competition from low-cost airlines. Greyhound faces a multitude of other issues, including immigration-related demand at the Southern U.S. border slowing to a five-year low in the second quarter as President Donald Trump tightened border controls, and lower fuel prices prompting people to use their cars instead of its coach services.

    UK employers slam $249 bln cost of Labour renationalisation plans

    A British employers' group criticised on Monday what it said would be the "beyond eye-watering" cost of the opposition Labour Party's plans to return utilities, train companies and the Royal Mail to public ownership. The Labour Party has moved sharply to the left under its leader Jeremy Corbyn, and although it lags the ruling Conservatives in opinion polls, Brexit turmoil and the likelihood of an early election could see it take power. The Confederation of British Industry said Labour's plans would have an upfront cost of 196 billion pounds ($249 billion), assuming Labour paid the full market value of companies involved - similar to a 176 billion-pound estimate made last year by the pro-privatisation Centre for Policy Studies think tank.
