  • Shares surge for RCL and P&O
    STOCK exchanges in London, New York and Oslo have reacted favourably to news of the P&O Princess and Royal Caribbean consolidation, announced today. Shares in Royal Caribbean rose by 22 per cent in Oslo and by around 15 per cent to $17.60, after opening at $15.00 on the NYSE, its main listing. Yesterday the shares rose by 21 cents. On the FTSE, shares in P&O Princess rose by 14.2 per cent to 363p after an initial rise of 20 per cent. Late afternoon they settled into a 360 ' 370 pence trading range. London-based New Star Asset Management's Mark Beale, who helps to oversee about $150M in US shares, told Bloomberg: 'It's a smart move...Together they can probably do more for their customers and shareholders than they could do alone.' However he also speculated that Carnival Corporation, the world's largest cruise operator until today's merger, could come in with a counter offer. P&O Princess' merger with highly leveraged Royal Caribbean may also mean P&O Princess's existing bond ratings may be dropped to junk status, after Standard & Poor's said it may cut the company's BBB rating by two notches. Royal Caribbean became the first shipping company whose bonds have traded from investment grade to junk status. P&O Princess has '537M ($762M) of bonds outstanding, while Royal Caribbean, rated Ba2 by Moody's, has about $4.3Bn of bonds outstanding, according to news reports.

  • Unilog doit réduire de moitié son offre ferroviaire transmanche
    L'opérateur transmanche Unilog a obtenu le feu vert pour la reprise de son service sur le Royaume-Uni hier. Cette autorisation est toutefois liée à des restrictions sévères: trois trains par semaine dans les deux sens (ce qui revient à une réduction de moitié du service actuel) et une escorte de la police ferroviaire française pour les trains en direction du Royaume-Uni. Unilog doit en outre obtenir une autorisation quotidienne avant le départ de chaque train.
