NoHo Partners PlcSTOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 25 February 2021 at 10:45NoHo Partners launches new co-operation negotiations to adapt its operations to restaurant closuresNoHo Partners Plc will start new negotiations in accordance with the Co-operation Act in order to adjust its operations to the closure measures concerning the restaurant industry published by the Finnish Government today, which will enter into force on March 8, 2021. The aim of the negotiations is to minimize the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.The co-operation negotiations cover the entire Group's personnel, i.e. approximately 1,250 people in Finland. In addition, the effects of the restaurant restriction measures are indirectly reflected in the company's approximately 2,000 temporary employees. Negotiations can lead to reduction of jobs and layoffs, part-time and full-time.- We will take immediate measures to close the restaurants and thereby lay off staff for the duration of the closure. Now begins the final round of the corona battle, which requires endurance from us, our customers, and, above all, from our staff. I believe that with the measures being taken now and the progress of the vaccination pace, we will be able to start the reconstruction phase as planned during the summer and return to a more normal life, says Aku Vikström, CEO of NoHo Partners.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan warned of an attempted military coup against him on Thursday after the army demanded he and his government resign in a statement. Pashinyan has faced protests and calls to resign after what his critics say was the disastrous handling of a six-week conflict between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh last year. Pashinyan has rejected calls to step down.
(Bloomberg) -- A planned overhaul of how the world’s most important benchmark crude price is calculated has caused a surge in trading of swaps used to hedge North Sea oil prices.From next summer, the benchmark Dated Brent price, a basis for two-thirds of all physical crude transactions worldwide, will no longer be based exclusively on the trading of barrels pumped from North Sea. Instead, supplies from Texas will also be eligible for inclusion to set the measure, publisher S&P Global Platts said Monday.The shift, which alters the nature of what Brent crude will be, has triggered a surge in trading of derivatives called Dated-to-Frontline swaps for 2022 that producers can use to hedge physical cargo sales, according to several people directly involved in the markets. Some participants are uncertain about how exchanges will accommodate the changes, they said.Prices of the contracts have spiked alongside the trading. Swaps for the second half of 2022 jumped by about 40 cents on Wednesday while those for before the June implementation date only climbed by single digits, according to ICE Futures Europe data. Until now, the Brent benchmark and associated derivatives have been based on the trading of barrels where they are loaded, known in market terminology as a free-on-board price. Adding U.S. crude means the market will be priced at the point of delivery, which usually includes shipping costs.It will also require a rewriting of the contracts that have underpinned trading in the Brent markets for decades.Late last year, ICE announced a consultation on Platts’s plans, which closed in January. It is still assessing the impact of the change on its markets, according to a person familiar with the matter.(Updates with prices in fourth paragraph.)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.

(Bloomberg) -- Anglo American Plc reported earnings that were little changed from a year earlier and beat expectations, after a wider commodity rally helped balance out another difficult year for its diamond business and a collapse in coal profits.The company is the last of the major miners to report earnings in what’s been a bumper season for investors, with BHP Group and Rio Tinto Group already handing back record dividends. The payouts, along with a recent surge in metal prices, have stoked fresh speculation about a new commodities supercycle, driven by tight supplies and strong demand as the world moves to decarbonize.So far Anglo’s returns have been more muted then some of its rivals, while it’s been more aggressive about pursuing growth. The company is planning to finish building a giant new copper mine in Peru next year and is also developing a potash mine in the U.K.It’s also the most diversified of the big miners, producing products like platinum and diamonds that tend to flatten out its earnings. This year, its De Beers diamond unit reported its smallest profit since at least the early 2000s, and coal earnings plunged after weaker prices and production setbacks in Australia.Anglo will return 72 cents a share to investors, after the century-old mining company cashed in on surging prices for iron ore, palladium and copper. The dividend -- which is calculated as 40% of underlying earnings -- compared with 47 cents a year earlier. However, when including the interim dividend, the total for 2020 will be lower than 2019.Anglo rose as much as 4.6% to the highest in almost a decade amid a wider rally in mining stocks. The company reported underlying earnings of $9.8 billion compared with $10 billion a year earlier.“While Anglo’s dividend is solid, it could have paid more,” said Ben Davis, an analyst at Liberum. “It’s clearly positioning itself more towards growth than rivals BHP and Rio.”Copper touched the highest since 2011 Thursday as investors bet a raft of measures to boost growth will see consumption outstrip near-term supply. Prices of other commodities such as oil and iron ore have also surged, while mining stocks are at the highest in a decade.“The fundamentals for commodities are strong, demand across most sectors is very good and supply is constrained,” Anglo’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Cutifani told reporters Thursday. “We think the market is in a good place.”(Updates with analyst comment in seventh paragraph.)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.

France said on Thursday it would bring in new COVID-19 restrictions for the area around its common border with Germany, as President Emmanuel Macron's government tries to contain a surge of coronavirus variants in the French region of Moselle. Cross-border workers, who had exemptions until now, will need to present negative PCR tests to get through if travelling for reasons unrelated to their jobs, France's European affairs and health ministers said in a joint statement. Home working in the area will also be reinforced, they said, after France and Germany said earlier this week they were trying to find ways to prevent a closure of their common border.
