Will £3bn in cash finally halt the Rolls-Royce share price slide?

first_imgWill £3bn in cash finally halt the Rolls-Royce share price slide? Alan Oscroft | Thursday, 1st October, 2020 | More on: RR Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Rolls-Royce Group (LSE: RR) has been one of the worst hit FTSE 100 companies in the 2020 stock market crash. Rolls makes much of its profit from maintenance, repairs, and parts contracts for its engines. And with the Civil Aviation business almost destroyed by the Covid-19 pandemic, much of that has dried up. The Rolls-Royce share price is now down over 80% since the start of the year, which is scary.Refinancing was clearly on the cards. And, on Thursday, Rolls revealed a plan to raise at least £3bn. And it might rise as high as £5bn. The initial market reaction was less than enthusiastic. The Rolls-Royce share price lost 5% in early trading. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Part of the new funding will come as a fully underwritten 10 for 3 rights issue. That should raise approximately £2bn. In addition, there’ll be a bond offering to raise at least £1bn. Rolls is also negotiating a new two year term loan facility of £1bn. And it has support in principle from UK Export Finance “an extension of its 80% guarantee to support a potential increase of the company’s existing £2bn five year term loan of up to £1bn.“Rolls-Royce share price discountRolls is pricing the new shares at 32p, a 41.4% discount “to the theoretical ex-rights price per existing ordinary share” based on 30 September. That Rolls-Royce needed to offer such a big discount to offload the new shares doesn’t exactly fill me with optimism. It suggests to me investors are still fearing significant downside potential.Chief executive Warren East said: “We are undertaking decisive and transformative action to fundamentally restructure our operations, materially reduce our cost base and improve our financial position.“The big question is, would you buy now at the current Rolls-Royce share price? I wouldn’t, and I’ll tell you why.For the first half of the year, Rolls-Royce reported a pre-tax loss of £5.4bn. At the time, the company’s balance sheet was suffering too. From a net cash position of £1.4bn, we saw a slump to net debt of £1.7bn. A free cash outflow of £2.8bn lay behind that, and Rolls expected that figure to rise to around £4bn for the full year.More capital needed?Against that position, all this new cash perhaps doesn’t look like such a huge amount after all. Though some analysts are more optimistic, Rolls-Royce itself has said it doesn’t expect to see positive cash generation before 2022. That’s a significant time to wait, and I don’t know if the current plans will be enough to get that far.Though the Rolls-Royce share price has been pummelled, behind it I still see a fundamentally good company. At interim time, I said I’d want to see glimmers at the end of the tunnel. And, especially, what shape any refinancing was going to take.Now I’ve seen it, I still don’t want to buy. I think Rolls-Royce could need to raise even more cash in the next year or two. And, if I bought now, I’d have no way to guess what dilution I’d suffer before things turn upwards.There might come a time when the Rolls-Royce share price looks like a recovery buy. But it’s not now. Not for me. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Police believe the New IRA are responsible for this cowardly attack during which they put everyone’s safety at risk as the device was left in a residential area and could have exploded at any time.“I would like to thank the public for their assistance to date but I believe there are still people in the community who hold vital pieces of information that could assist police and I would appeal to them to make contact with Detectives on 101 or alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.” Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Facebook Man arrested for attempted murder of police officer in Derry Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Homepage BannerNews Google+ By News Highland – December 21, 2017 center_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest Previous articleRuaille Buaille le Colm Feiritéar 19/12/17Next articleDonegal woman convicted for failing to adequately feed ‘Misty’ News Highland Harps come back to win in Waterford Google+ News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population growslast_img read more

Real estate investor Alex Adjmi receives presidential pardon

first_imgDonald Trump and Alex Adjmi (Photos via Getty; GOSO NYC)Alex Adjmi, a mainstay of the Syrian Jewish community that dominates the Manhattan retail market, received a presidential pardon, the White House announced early Wednesday. Adjmi was convicted of money laundering for a Colombian drug cartel in 1996 and served 44 months in prison.Adjmi is the head of A&H Acquisitions, a major but under-the-radar real estate player across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Chicago and Los Angeles. A&H has or previously had stakes in properties including 529 and 568 Broadway in Soho, 213 West 34th Street in Midtown, 21 Ninth Avenue in the Meatpacking District, and 9570 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. It often partners with other big investors from the community on these deals, including Jeff Sutton, Aurora Capital Associates, and Crown Acquisitions, whose founder, Stanley Chera, was a prominent backer of President Trump.Adjmi’s petition was supported by influential members of the community, including Haim Chera, son of Stanley Chera and head of retail at Vornado Realty Trust; Bobby Cayre, head of Aurora Capital, and members of the Sitt family, according to the announcement from the White House.Adjmi was a target of a federal sting operation in which he allegedly helped wash $22.5 million for the Cali cocaine cartel through a Connecticut brokerage that was in fact an undercover operation run by the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Agency, according to the Asbury Park Press. He was arrested in 1993 and pleaded guilty to five felonies. He went to prison in 1996 and was released in October 2000 after serving 44 months.“Following his release, he [Adjmi] has dedicated himself to his community and has supported numerous charitable causes, including support for children with special needs and substance recovery centers,” the White House said. In 2017, Alex and his brother and partner, Harry, were honored by Getting Out Staying Out, an organization that helps formerly incarcerated people find a path to the job market. A&H offered former inmates paid internships in its construction division.Reached Wednesday, Adjmi only said that he was “humbled and grateful to have received this pardon.”The Adjmi family has several homes in the wealthy New Jersey seaside enclave of Deal, though Alex’s personal property is in nearby Allenhurst.Trump has bestowed a number of pardons and commutations on real estate and business executives and associates in his final days in office. In December, the president pardoned Kushner Companies’ founder Charles Kushner, who served 14 months in federal prison on crimes including illegal campaign donations and witness tampering.And on Wednesday, Trump also pardoned Ken Kurson, former editor-in-chief of the New York Observer. Kurson was arrested in October on charges of cyberstalking. The Observer, which includes the popular real-estate supplement Commercial Observer, was bought by Jared Kushner in 2006 and is now controlled by his brother-in-law, Joseph Meyer.Trump can still issue more pardons until President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in today, at noon Eastern.This story was updated to include a comment from Alex Adjmi.Contact the author Email Address* Message* Share via Shortlink Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tagsalex adjmiDonald TrumpNYC Retail Marketlast_img read more
