Clashes between Kurdish fighters and Turkey-backed opposition gunmen in northern Syria left at least 11 fighters dead in some of the most intense fighting in weeks between the two sides, an opposition war monitor and a Kurdish spokesman said Tuesday. Exchange of fire and shelling between the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces and Turkey-backed opposition gunmen who identify as the Syrian National Army have not been uncommon since Turkish troops invaded parts of northern Syria in October of last year. The Monday night clashes near the town of Ein Issa were triggered by an attack by Turkey-backed gunmen on SDF positions, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition war monitor.

Compass, the world's largest catering company, has posted a nearly 70% drop in operating profits for the full year to September 30. The company completed a £2 billion cash raise in June to help it see out the pandemic using London Stock Exchange Group-backed fintech platform Primary Bid, in a major opportunity for small investors. Chief executive Dominic Blakemore said that he is confident the company can restore operating margins to above 7% “and get back to industry-leading performance, and that is before we fully restore the volumes we enjoyed pre-Covid”.

(Bloomberg) -- German businesses are losing confidence in the outlook after a resurgence in coronavirus cases forced authorities to reintroduce restrictions, putting a halt to the recovery.An expectations gauge by the Ifo institute fell to 91.5 in November from 94.7 the previous month, a steeper drop than economists forecast. The outlook is particularly bad in services, where temporary business closures and rules affecting social activities erode profits and threaten bankruptcies.More than 70% of companies in the hospitality sector are worried about failing, with almost 20% wondering if they’ll even get through this month. Ifo said a sub-index for hotels and hospitality “absolutely nosedived.”Germany’s outlook could worsen yet again on Wednesday when Chancellor Angela Merkel and the country’s regional leaders will decide on whether to tighten and extend virus curbs through much of the upcoming holiday season. “Businesses are more or less resigned to the fact that this uncertainty -- these measures coming in and being lifted again -- is going to stay for some time,” Ifo President Clemens Fuest told Bloomberg TV. The economy’s rebound from lockdowns in the first half of the year only offered a short reprieve. Private consumption jumped 10.8% in the third quarter with investment up 3.6%, according to a separate report Tuesday. The economy grew 8.5% after a near 10% slump in the three months through June.In light of new restrictions, economists expect the economy to stagnate this quarter, while the Bundesbank sees a risk of a contraction. The domestic restrictions are more focused than during the first wave, but exports are suffering from a resurgence of the virus across Europe, it said.(Updates with comment from Ifo’s Fuest in fifth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

The global unified endpoint management market size is expected to reach USD 23.98 billion by 2027, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32.2% from 2020 to 2027, according to the new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. The rise in disruptive trends such as Bring-Your-Own-Devices (BYOD), Internet of Things (IoT), and Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) is one of the key attributing factors driving the market growth. The subsequent adoption of such trends among organizations increases IT devices and the burden on IT admins to manage these devices using different platforms or solutions. As a result, the need for a unified solution becomes evident among the organization, which could centrally manage all endpoints.
(Bloomberg) -- The U.K. is considering a ban on the installation of Huawei Technologies Co. 5G equipment as soon as next year to appease hawks pushing for tighter restrictions on the Chinese network equipment maker, according to people familiar with the matter. Legislators from Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party are demanding the stricter rules as part of the price for backing telecommunications security legislation due in parliament next week.The draft law will give parliament a chance to force carriers to replace 5G equipment well before a blanket ban is enforced in 2027.The U.K. already set limits on telecom companies buying from Huawei that are set to kick in after December. However, there are no rules yet barring companies from using Huawei gear they already bought but haven’t yet installed. Carriers have been stockpiling parts made by Huawei while sourcing alternatives. Stopping them using those stockpiled parts could increase costs at companies such as BT Group Plc and Vodafone Group Plc, which would be forced to speed up the overhaul of their networks, according to people familiar with phone companies’ plans.Under the new proposal, that ban could come into force as soon as September next year, the people said, asking for anonymity as the talks are confidential. A representative for the government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport had no immediate comment. “We will be working through the details of any planned rules restricting procurement or deployment of Huawei equipment,” said a BT spokesman. “We would encourage the Government to continue to take balanced and evidence-based decisions.”In January, the U.K. granted Huawei a limited role in 5G networks, leading to a parliamentary rebellion. Prime Minister Boris Johnson reversed his position in July, after U.S. sanctions introduced in May affected Huawei’s supply chain. British officials said the change meant they were no longer able to guarantee the security of the Shenzhen company’s products.The latest proposals may not go far enough for some lawmakers, who are calling for the government to consider forcing carriers to remove Huawei equipment from their 5G networks earlier than the current 2027 plan.The current draft of the telecommunications bill grants the government broad powers to enforce a moratorium against Huawei, but leaves important details to be nailed down later on and doesn’t mention Huawei by name, angering potential Conservative rebels who want more specific commitments.Lawmakers are set to debate the bill next week. The draft legislation proposes fines of as much as 10% of sales or 100,000 pounds a day ($133,000) for violations, which will apply to carriers including BT, Vodafone and CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd.’s Three UK.The U.S. has campaigned for its allies to exclude Huawei on the grounds its proximity to China’s government constitutes an unacceptable security risk, which the company has denied.Without Huawei, U.K. mobile networks will lean heavily on its Nordic rivals Nokia Oyj and Ericsson AB. The government is due to publish more details about diversifying the U.K. 5G supply chain in the next few weeks.(Updates with context from fourth paragraph, statement from BT)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
