Taiwan's GlobalWafers made what it said was a final attempt to save a 4.35 billion euro ($5.3 billion) bid for Germany's Siltronic on Monday by lowering the minimum acceptance threshold and extending its offer deadline. The proposed deal would combine GlobalWafers, the number three player in the 300 millimetre wafers market and Siltronic, the fourth biggest, to create the world's second-largest player behind Japan's Shin-Etsu. GlobalWafers, which makes silicon wafers used in computers, smart phones, and other appliances, raised its bid for its German rival in two days last week to 145 euros from an original offer of 125 euros as it seeks to win over shareholders.

(Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG is conducting an internal probe after receiving complaints that some bank employees sold risky investments to clients who didn’t properly understand them.“We initiated an investigation in relation to our engagement with a limited number of clients,” a bank spokesman said in a statement on Sunday, following a Financial Times report on the investigation. Deutsche bank won’t comment further until it completes the review, he said.The probe, codenamed Project Teal, was started in response to client complaints last year and originally focused on a desk in Spain that sells hedges, swaps and derivatives, a person familiar with the matter said. It appears that only Spain and Portugal-based clients were affected, the person said.The investigation comes as Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing seeks to improve relations with regulators and draw a line under a string of previous missteps. Deutsche Bank paid billions of dollars in fines and settlements in recent years for misconduct ranging from failure to stop money laundering to selling toxic mortgage securities and rigging benchmark interest rates.The latest probe seeks to determine whether clients were incorrectly sorted according to their financial sophistication under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, and whether the bank’s staff sold investment banking products to clients in breach of the EU rules, the person said.The probe has been expanded across Europe, and the bank is also looking at whether employees colluded with staff at some of the clients to split the profits, the FT reported.The misconduct appears to be broad-based over several years, rather than an isolated occurrence, the FT said in its report. It is centered around a former employee who has already left the bank, according to the newspaper.(Adds details about probe throughout)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Foreign investors who for years saw Turkey as a lost cause of economic mismanagement are edging back in, drawn by the promise of some of the biggest returns in emerging markets if President Tayyip Erdogan stays true to a pledge of reforms. More than $15 billion has streamed into Turkish assets since November when Erdogan - long sceptical of orthodox policymaking and quick to scapegoat outsiders - abruptly promised a new market-friendly era and installed a new central bank chief. Interviews with more than a dozen foreign money managers and Turkish bankers say those inflows could double by mid-year, especially if larger investment funds take longer-term positions, following on the heels of fleet-footed hedge funds.
Britain's two biggest online fashion retailers Boohoo and ASOS have moved to buy the brands of collapsed high street giants Debenhams and Arcadia, underlining how the COVID-19 pandemic has turbocharged growth in digital sales.

But the deal with Debenhams' administrators, FRP Advisory, does not include any of the chain's 124 stores or safeguard jobs.

Tottenham could be without Dele Alli for tonight’s FA Cup trip to Wycombe. Alli has been cast aside by Jose Mourinho in the Premier League this season and the FA Cup would have been another chance to impress, with the midfielder having started against eighth-tier Marine in the third round.

Dublin, Jan. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Asia Pacific Offshore Pipeline Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Diameter, Line Type, and Product" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The APAC offshore pipeline market is expected to grow from US$ 2,188.82 million in 2019 to US$ 2,761.26 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.2 % from 2020 to 2027. New oil and gas reserves detection and discovery across APAC drive the growth of the APAC offshore pipeline market. In September 2020, Equinor - an energy company - announced the discovery of new oil & gas fields. Furthermore, in October 2020, another oil and gas company, Total and its partners announced that they will evaluate several development options for commercializing a new gas and condensate discovery. Such discoveries of new offshore oil & gas reserves across the region boost the construction of new plants and requirements for new offshore pipelines for cross-border transmission, which bolster the APAC offshore pipeline market. The upgradation in flexible pipe technology is another factor that generates the demand of offshore pipelines across the region.Countries across APAC, especially the China and India, are adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The region comprises the world's two most populated and prominent oil producing countries. China virtually imposed strict lockdown and social isolation, restricting manufacturing activities. These measures resulted in shrinking demand for oil and other energy commodities across the country. Thus, the oil & gas construction activities across China plummeted significantly, which hindered the offshore pipeline market in the country. Similarly, Indian government is imposing a nationwide lockdown to control the growing number of COVID-19 cases. Subsequently, the lockdown and disruption of various manufacturing activities contributed significantly in reduced activities in oil & gas sector. Therefore, the overall restrictions on activities in oil & gas industries collectively hindered the demand for offshore pipelines across APAC countries during the early months of 2020. The impact of the outbreak is quite severe in 2020, and it is likely to continue in 2021. Hence, the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and critical situation in China and India would restrain the APAC offshore pipeline market growth in the next a few quarters. Based on line type, the transport line segment led the APAC offshore pipeline market in 2019. Transport lines, also called transmission lines, are used for carrying gas or oil from one coast to another coast. These lines work similarly to a tanker carrying oil for trading purposes. They transport oil or gas from their corresponding gathering pipelines to processing, refining, or storage facilities. Transport lines are also used to carry refined petroleum products and natural gas to consumers for further distribution. Transport pipeline systems comprise equipment - such as pipe, pumps or compressors, valves, storage tanks, and breakout tanks - and facilities essential to carry the products. They are made up of steel pipe, and their diameter size can vary from several feet to inches. These pipeline systems can be constructed for operating from quite low pressures to more than 1,000 pounds per square inch of pressure, based on the product being carried. Also, their range can vary in length from hundreds of miles to hundreds of feet. All these factors are driving the growth of the APAC offshore pipeline market.The overall APAC offshore pipeline market size has been derived using both primary and secondary sources. To begin the research process, exhaustive secondary research has been conducted using internal and external sources to obtain qualitative and quantitative information related to the market. The process also serves the purpose of obtaining an overview and forecast for the APAC offshore pipeline market with respect to all the segments pertaining to the region. Also, multiple primary interviews have been conducted with industry participants and commentators to validate the data, as well as to gain more analytical insights into the topic. The participants of this process include industry experts such as VPs, business development managers, offshore pipeline market intelligence managers, and national sales managers, along with external consultants such as valuation experts, research analysts, and key opinion leaders, specializing in the APAC offshore pipeline market. Bechtel Corporation; Fugro; John Wood Group PLC; Larsen & Toubro Limited; McDermott International, Inc.; Petrofac Limited; Saipem S.p.A; Sapura Energy Berhad; Subsea 7 S.A.; and TechnipFMC plc are a few players operating in the market.
