Fairfax India Holdings Corp gets initial approval to buy Catholic Syrian Bank

first_imgFairfax India Holdings Corp. is close to investing and acquiring a majority stake in Catholic Syrian Bank(CSB) after receiving an unoffocial by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) marking the first takeover of a local private bank by a foreign investor.Prem Watsa, the Canadian billionaire and owner of Fairfax India Holdings Corp. met RBI governor Urjit Patel and deputy governors S.S. Mundra and R.S. Gandhi on Friday according to DealStreetAsia.The Catholic Syrian Bank Limited, one of India’s oldest private sector lenders is an Indian private sector bank with its headquarters at Thrissur, Kerala, India. According to Economic Times who cited sources said Fairfax is likely to have 15% voting rights in CSB.The Fairfax proposal is expected to be heard by the board of Catholic Syrian Bank on Tuesday and Wednesday. LuLu Group MD Yusuffali M.A., Federal Bank, Bridge India Fund, and Edelweiss Finance and Investments are some of the shareholders of Catholic Syrian Bank.However, the deal that is expected to involve an equity infusion by Fairfax will still require a final nod from the central board of RBI and several insiders such as S. Santhanakrishnan, chairman of Catholic Syrian Bank have declined to deny or accept the developments.”We do not comment on any market rumours or speculation,” Harsha Raghavan, managing director and chief executive of Fairbridge Capital Private Ltd, a Fairfax unit said according to DealStreetAsia.RBI’s changes in regulation that were introduced in May, to allow regulated, well-diversified and listed or supranational institutions to own up to 40%ownership in private banks were also measured with exemptions “as permitted on a case to case basis.”The new rules have capped Foreign direct investment or shareholding in a private sector bank by foreign entitiesin private banks at 74%. The RBI had also retained a provision under which investors have to seek its permission to increase shareholding/voting rights to 5% or more.The bank has been seen as a lucrative investmentand and has often been on the takeover radar of bigger banks and corporates.  Compare to the same as September 2015, this year, the bank reported a net profit of Rs5.3 crore as compared to the loss of Rs 40.5 crore last year. Its gross non-performing assets dropped to Rs462.7 crore at the end of September, from Rs503.6 crore a year ago. Gross bad loans stand at 5.7% of advances.last_img read more

Snap Loses Another 2 Million Users Beats Q3 Earnings Expectations

first_img Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The company’s net losses for the quarter were $325.15 million, which translated to a net loss of $0.25 per share. Last year around, Snap’s losses came in at $0.36 per share.Analysts had expected revenue of $283 million, and losses of $0.27 per share.These results mirror last quarter’s numbers, when the company disclosed that it had lost 3 million daily active users, while at the same time posting better-than-expected revenue and earnings numbers.Snap CEO Evan Spiegel blamed the user decline on problems with Snapchat’s Android app, something that the company has frequently pointed to as one of its pain points in the past. Snap is already testing a rebuilt Android app in a couple of markets, but Spiegel said Thursday that the company wasn’t ready to be released widely. “We still have a bunch of work to do there,” he said.The same seems to be true for one of Snap’s other goal: becoming a profitable company. Neither Spiegel nor CFO Tim Stone wanted to commit to reaching profitability in 2019, something that Spiegel laid out as a goal in a recently leaked email to employees. “Internal goals are just that,” Stone said. “They are internal goals.”This also sums up pretty well why investors are a lot more forgiving to Twitter than to Snapchat. Twitter has become a profitable company, raking in $0.21 per share in Q3. Snap, on the other, hand is still in growth mode, spending heavily to build out its products and attract new users, to the tune of $1.3 billion for research and development during the first 9 months of this year. Thus far, it looks like those investments don’t pay off.Spiegel, nonetheless, ended his prepared remarks on Thursday’s earnings call with a positive outlook for 2019:“We are in this for the long term and we are just getting started. We offer a uniquely different user experience and we are excited about the many opportunities we have to drive growth.”Other notable tidbits from the earnings report:This past quarter, 21 unique shows on Snapchat Discover reached a monthly active audience of over 10 million viewers.NBCUniversal extended its content-production commitments through 2019; Viacom committed to creating 10 new Snap Original Shows as well as syndicating at least 500 episodes of its networks’ shows on Snapchat.Snapchat users have saved more than 200 billion Snaps to date.Over 60% of Snapchat’s daily active users create Snaps every day.Snapchat’s Tic-Tac-Toe AR game attracted over 80 million unique users in Q3.Countries outside of North America now represent 30 percent of Snap’s total revenue.center_img Snapchat corporate parent Snap seems to be following Twitter’s example: The company continues to bleed users, but it is getting a lot better at monetizing its existing user base.During its most recent quarter, Snap lost 2 million daily active users compared with the previous quarter, the company disclosed as part of its Q3 earnings report Thursday. However, it handily beat analyst expectations on revenue and earnings, approaching $300 million in revenue for the quarter.Investors responded by sending Snap’s stock up sharply in after-hours trading, only to send it back into negative territory soon after, with share prices down more than 10% in after-hours trading.That’s in contrast to Twitter, whose stock price was up more than 15% Thursday after reporting a similar combination of declining user numbers and better-than-expected earnings earlier in the day.last_img read more

Ubisoft unveils new IP Watch Dogs

first_imgThe number of notable games classed as open world experiences is slowly growing. Number one on the list has to be the Grand Theft Auto series, but we can also include Saints Row, Prototype, and inFamous on there. Now Ubisoft is throwing its hat into the ring with a brand new open world action adventure IP called Watch Dogs.Ubisoft announced the game at E3 yesterday and has created a new team to develop Watch Dogs comprising of key members of the Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow 6, and Far Cry teams. What they’ve created is a world where cities are controlled by computers, and those computers are controlled by private companies (sounds like the real world to me). The problem is, the whole system is corrupt.You play as Aiden Pearce, but your special abilities don’t extend to fantastical powers or over the top weaponry. Watch Dogs seems to be keeping a firm grasp on reality, so you’ll be hacking into computer systems, using security cameras, jamming cell phones, and manipulating traffic lights to achieve a goal, or at the very least a distraction.Your main weapons seem to be a gun and a cell phone, with the emphasis firmly on the cell phone to access systems and manipulate the environment. From the two videos and handful of screenshots Ubisoft has released so far, it certainly seems as if the focus is on intelligent play over combat, but that’s not to say this won’t have well thought out combat mechanics as the gameplay video above clearly shows.Watch Dogs is planned for release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, but no release dates have been revealed yet. After just this early preview the game certainly looks promising and the engine looks fantastic.More to come at Watch Dogslast_img read more

She is a great scholar and seasoned art administrator who has performed, given lectures and conducted workshops in 90 countries around the world. Sonal has been unique among dancers as she has mastered multiple Indian classical dance forms from different parts of India like Bharatanatyam, Odissi and Chhau.

Qantas passengers share a flight with a snake

first_imgThe snake battles with the flying kangaroo. Image: Fairfax Media Vision: Robert Webber Source = e-Travel Blackboard: A.N There are some films that will never be shown for your in-flight entertainment; movies that involve a plane crashing or in a hostage situation are quite high on the list and ‘Snakes on a Plane’ is undoubtedly not too far behind.Yet when some passengers were able to finally explore their selection of channels 20 minutes into a Qantas flight from Cairns to Port Moresby, others took a look to the left and discovered that nature had defied all laws that govern what is appropriate to watch at 35,000 feet.The QF191 passengers were treated to a rare battle between man’s creation and snake as a three-metre python took to the skies on its wing.Originally being nestled behind the wing for what surely began as an innocent Queensland nap, the snake was soon taken on an unexpected journey as it battled with 400km/h winds and minus 12 degree weather.The front row viewers described how they watched the snake struggle throughout the 1.5 hour flight, along with the pilots who took turns in monitoring the effort of the snake who was whipped around the wing.As the white Qantas wing began to see splashes of red, it was clear that the snake’s battle was all but over.A Qantas spokesperson later stated that they had “never heard of this happening before”, whilst the president of the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association, Paul Cousins, said that for the snake to be able to reach the cabin, would have been impossible, which perhaps explains the lack of panic on the early morning flight. last_img read more
