(Reuters) – Appaloosa LP said on Thursday investor John Chevedden was backing the hedge fund’s proposal to split the roles of chairman and chief executive officer at Botox-maker Allergan Plc. Chevedden, an activist investor who frequently files shareholder rights proposals, had withdrawn his own proposal for Allergan and would support Appaloosa’s, the hedge fund said, adding that this would eliminate unnecessary confusion elegant cufflinks. “John Chevedden has worked tirelessly for many years to advance important corporate governance initiatives and we are gratified that he shares our view,” said Appaloosa President David Tepper..
Earlier this month, Tepper stepped up pressure on the botox maker to consider selling itself and splitting the top roles immediately, if management is unable to turn around recent lagging performance. In response, the drugmaker said implementing Appaloosa’s recommendations would be “highly disruptive” to Allergan’s operations and on Thursday redirected Reuters to its earlier response when asked to comment. Allergan’s shares, which fell 18.3 pct in 2018, have been lagging those of its peers on account of dropped plans to sell its women’s health unit, a disappointing revenue outlook for 2019 and increasing competition for many of its important drugs elegant cufflinks.
(Reuters) – Venezuela’s oil exports sank 40 percent in the first full month after the beginning of U.S. sanctions designed to oust Socialist President Nicolas Maduro, according to data from state-run oil firm PDVSA and Refinitiv Eikon. On Jan. 28, President Donald Trump’s administration barred U.S. customers from paying for Venezuelan oil until a new government being formed by the nation’s congress head Juan Guaido could be established to accept the proceeds. Venezuela’s exports since then have dropped to 920,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude and fuel, the data shows elegant cufflinks. That is down from between 1.47 million and 1.66 million bpd of crude and fuel in the prior three months, the data show..
Almost 70 percent of Venezuela’s oil shipments since Jan. 28 have gone to PDVSA’s clients in Asia, with India rising to first place among top destinations, followed by Singapore and China. Singapore is a hub for storage, trans-shipment and re-exports. Europe, which imported a marginal volume of Venezuelan oil before sanctions, increased its share to 15 percent, followed by the United States with 11 percent and the Caribbean with 2 percent, according to the data. In total, PDVSA exported 675,000 bpd of crude and 245,000 bpd of fuel, versus 1.28 million to 1.46 million bpd of crude and 200,000 bpd of fuel prior to sanctions. The figures exclude cargoes that were loaded but have been stuck at sea pending arrangements to pay accounts being set up by Guaido’s team elegant cufflinks.
