At the moment it offers 25m tracks for about £19.99 a month. That’s in comparison to more than 30m on Spotify, at about £9.99 a month. Aspiro’s largest shareholder, Schibsted, which owns 75 per cent of shares in Aspiro’s parent company, has apparently recommended the offer, putting a hefty 59.1 per cent premium on its share price. Trond Berger, Schibsted’s chief financial offers, said there was “a lot of potential further growth”, but that Jay-Z’s company Project Panther Bidco “has adequate financial resources and a high level of competence in the music industry”.Hence, I think they will be a better owner to lift Aspiro and its advanced music streaming service to a new level.Could Jay-Z, aka Sean Carter, be looking to rival Dr Dre for inspiration? Last April, Dre overtook Jay-Z as the world’s highest-earning hip-hop act when sold Beats, his headphone brand, to Apple for $3bn.The brand, whose sale made Dr Dre the first hip hop billionaire, also included Beats Music, a music streaming service. It’s thought this was what Apple was after, as it seeks to position its iTunes music download service as a rival against Spotify. The biggest brand in hip hopJaz-Z once said he’s “not a businessman, I’m a business, man” – but there’s no doubting his entrepreneurial nouse.Valued at $520m by Forbes, his investments include clothing brand Roc Nation, which is said to be “worth a healthy nine figures”, while in November wine and spirits company Sovereign Brands said he had bought its luxury Armand de Brignac champagne brand, whose bottles sell for just short of £200, for an undisclosed sum. His music label, Roc-a-Fella records, represents artists including Kanye West. As president and chief executive of legendary hip hop label Def Jam until 2007, he can also take credit for launching the career of Rihanna. Share Show Comments ▼ whatsapp
The season in Washington and Oregon will give a clearer picture of Chinese demand for US cherries, he noted, adding that issues with shipping to China go beyond tariffs to aspects like compliance, with standards and permits set by the administration.Another question is how far the increasingly belligerent rhetoric between Washington and Beijing will impact Chinese consumers’ shopping decisions, possibly sparking a bias against US products.But other Asian markets that traditionally bought California cherries have shown little appetite. Up to 16 May, 128,000 cases went to South Korea, while Japan imported 71,839 – a far cry from their past volumes, Mr Connell said.European markets are in various stages of reopening, but all have been shy of bringing in large volumes of fruit, Mr Connell said.“The domestic market is definitely less of a risk for growers, packers and shippers,” he concluded.Cherries are not the only US perishables struggling in Asian markets this year. Seafood exporters have also found the going slow, according to forwarder reports.Their competitors north of the border have fared better since late April, although exports from February through most of April were down drastically, as restaurants in China were closed, said Brendan Harnett, CEO and chairman of Canada’s Flying Fresh Air Cargo.However, since then, the lobster market in China has come back strongly, reaching levels of a year ago, he reported. The activity has drawn in charter operators who previously dumped large volumes of lobster into the Chinese market, which led to a sharp drop in prices, Mr Harnett said.He is optimistic that Canadian perishables exports will fare better in China than US goods, given the less-turbulent political relationship. However, the Canadian cherry crop is expected to be significantly smaller this year than two years ago.In some respects, a shift by Canadian producers to the domestic market would be challenging at this point, notably for seafood. Usually this traffic is flown overnight, but domestic capacity fell sharply as Air Canada slashed its schedule, leaving a single daily widebody flight between Vancouver and Toronto.But thanks to the cargo flights with passenger aircraft to haul personal protection equipment in from China, transpacific capacity has been much better.Likewise, Commodity Forwarders has had no problem finding airfreight capacity to Asian markets.“We’re seeing more lift into certain markets than ever, because of PPE,” Mr Connell said.After an initial jump, westbound pricing has not shown the dramatic rises of rates out of China, so perishables exporters have not been forced to other markets for this reason. Mr Harnett is wondering, though, if the recent drop in eastbound rates may prompt carriers to raise their westbound rates to compensate. By Ian Putzger, Americas correspondent 27/05/2020 © Photovs US consumers can look forward to ample quantities of lobster and cherries in grocery stores this summer, as perishables shippers turn away from Asian markets.Meanwhile, their Canadian competitors are busy meeting Asian demand.But airlines used to loading up with Californian cherries in May have seen meagre pickings this year: of 2.88 million boxes, each holding 18lbs of cherries, 88% have gone to the US domestic market, 220,000 were sold to Canada and only a mere 24,697 boxes went to China and Hong Kong.“China has not traditionally been a big taker of California cherries. The Pacific Northwest has always been stronger into China, as its crop meets the profile in terms of size of fruit Chinese buyers look for,” said Chris Connell, senior vice-president North America of Commodity Forwarders, a subsidiary of Kuehne + Nagel.
Eisai is threatening to reduce investment in the UK over access to cancer drugs, Pharma Times writes. Patients with thyroid cancer could be waiting three years for access to its Lenvima drug because it was not included in the Cancer Drugs Fund and cost-effectiveness guidelines will not be published until 2018. We “may be forced to consider its level of investment in the UK, because it is unacceptable that drugs which are manufactured in England cannot be provided to people in England, without delays of many years,” said Gary Hendler, who heads Eisai in Europe.India’s Central Drugs Standard Control Organization has identified about 500 pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities with quality-control issues, the Economic Times lets us know. The government hopes that new inspections will cut hygiene, personnel training, and other quality-related issues by up to 90 percent.

WARE, England — Andy Sullivan is closing in on his first win in almost five years after a third-round 64 on Saturday gave him a five-shot lead at the English Championship. The 33-year-old Englishman won three times in 2015 as he finished in Europe’s top 10 but he has not lifted a trophy since the Portugal Masters in October of that year. The 2016 Ryder Cup player entered the third day at Hanbury Manor with a one-shot advantage and carded two eagles, five birdies and two bogeys to move to 21 under, five strokes clear of countryman Steven Brown. Full-field scores from the English Championship ”My strategy (Sunday) will be the same as today,” Sullivan told europeantour.com. ”Just control what I can do. I can’t control anyone that is going to come up behind me.” Sullivan set the tone with a remarkable drive to 2 feet on the par-four No. 1 for an eagle but he needed another eagle on the ninth to reclaim the lead from a charging Brandon Stone (67), who had six birdies before the turn. As the South African faltered on the back nine, Brown became the nearest challenger, signing for a 66 that included him hitting the pin to be denied a hole-in-one on the sixth. Highlights: Leader Sullivan (64) opens up big gap in England But Sullivan picked up four birdies in six holes from the 12th, with a three-putt on the 13th his only blemish on the back nine. Stone was alongside countryman Dean Burmester (69) and Spain’s Adrian Otaegui (67) at 15 under. The top 10 players on the European Tour’s mini Order of Merit after the first five events of the U.K. Swing will seal a place in the U.S. Open, with Sullivan having finished fourth at the British Masters two weeks ago.

Mr Skou attributed the growth in its ocean business to the 3.9% increase in rates the carrier was able to push through, even with volumes dropping 2.2% compared with 2018.Overall, the division reported a 42% upturn in profits, returning an ebitda of $927m for the three-month period, “driven by higher freight rates and demurrage and detention, partly offset by lower volumes”.But the period has also been notable for the carrier’s transformation strategy, which this quarter included the hiving-off of its gas operations.“We made good progress on the transformation, completing the separation of the energy businesses and further integrating and improving our product portfolio,” said Mr Skou. “This resulted in a solid cash return on invested capital and delivery of synergies, getting us closer to our target of $1bn by end of 2019.“Non-ocean revenue and gross profit in Logistics & Services grew, but needs to accelerate in the coming quarters.”Amid the transformation, the success of smaller divisions will bolster confidence; terminal operations recorded a near-9% jump in revenue to $991m, driving profits up 9% to $267m.Its logistics division managed to increase profits 13% to $51m, despite a 0.5% decline in revenue to $1.25bn, which it said was driven by lower air freight forwarding income.Looking forward, Mr Skou said the company’s aim was to grow in line with the market, adding that on the ocean side it would be increasing margins through improved utilisation.“We will be doing scrubber installations over the year, so some ships will be in dry dock for six weeks, but we will use charters to plug these holes,” he explained.“Even so, we believe we can improve capacity by utilisation and therefore keep the same number of vessels rather than bringing new ships in to help build this.” By Alexander Whiteman 24/05/2019 Maersk headquarters in Copenhagen Despite Maersk saying it is not “where it needs to be”, the first quarter was certainly kind, with the carrier recording a 33% bounce in profits on the back of a 2.5% upturn in revenues.Group revenue hit $9.5bn, generating $1.2bn in ebitda over the three months and, although it reported a group-wide net loss of $104m, chief executive Soren Skou told investors he was pleased with the performance.“We have had a reasonably good start, continued to improve profitability and, while not where we need to be, the little bit is good,” he said.“We are beating everyone this quarter, although we are still waiting on CMA CGM, and we aim to continue to grow ahead of the market.”
