Powered by Firework Since sacking José Mourinho back in December 2018, Manchester United’s performance in the domestic and European competitions hasn’t really been mind blowing with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær on the helm. Recently, the executive vice chairman of the club, Ed Woodward, has come forward with his opinion, stating that with proper time, the Red Devils will taste success once again.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesFrom finishing 6th in last season of the Premier League and missing out this year Champions League tournament, to the shameful  defeat against West Ham, but Woodward believes that with given time, the Norwegian gaffer will turn things around.“We and our growing fan base demand success.

Rickmers Floats Revised Debt Restructuring Plan

first_imgzoom Rickmers Trust Management, the trustee-manager of the container ship owner and operator Rickmers Maritime, has presented a revised restructuring plan in relation to the SGD 100 million (USD 74 million) 8.45% notes due 2017 after taking feedback from its informal meeting with noteholders on 15 September 2016. Soeren Andersen, the Chief Executive Officer of Rickmers Trust Management, said that one of the key suggestions raised at the informal meeting was for a more substantial debt to equity swap, which requires unitholders’ approval at an extraordinary general meeting.”We can’t be sure that unitholders will approve the dilution, but we will try. In the essence of time, we will run both processes to seek unitholders’ and noteholders’ consents in parallel,” Andersen said.Rickmers Trust Management intends to seek the approval of noteholders via a consent solicitation exercise to amend the notes, with a partial redemption of SGD 60 million of the principal in exchange for 60% of the enlarged units of the trust, such that the outstanding principal amount under the notes is reduced to an aggregate of SGD 40 million repayable in November 2023.It is also proposed that some 1.32 billion new units are to be issued, representing 150% of the current number of units outstanding of the trust.“The proposal that we are presenting is equitable. If accepted, it would make way for a new facility of about US$260.2 million, and extends the maturities of a large part of the Trust’s secured bank debts to the first quarter of 2021 and includes, amongst other terms, a generally back-ended amortisation schedule. This would give the Trust more time to weather the depressed market, and underpins its solvency,” said Andersen.In support of the proposed restructuring, Rickmers Holding AG, the sponsor of Rickmers Maritime holding 34.2% of the units in the trust, has indicated that they will be providing an undertaking to the trustee-manager to vote in favour of the resolution to issue 1.32 billion new units as a partial redemption of the notes.Tomas Norton de Matos, Chief Financial Officer of RTM, said: “We urge all unitholders and noteholders to very carefully consider the proposals. If not executed within a short period of time, industry conditions and the Trust’s liquidity position may preclude a consensual solution by all of us. On the other hand, a successful restructuring would result in the provision of the New Facility to Rickmers Maritime, providing the Trust with a longer runway to survive the industry downturn and turnaround the business.”Rickmers Maritime recorded a net loss of USD 55.6 million in the second quarter of this year, compared to a loss of USD 15.7 million in the same period last year, a change of 255%.The company’s charter revenue during the period fell to USD 18 million from USD 28.5 million seen in the second quarter of 2015, mostly due to reduced charter rates and a lower vessel utilization rate amid a worsened charter market.last_img read more

Dimitrov stuns Roger Federer to reach semi against Medvedev

first_imgNew York: Grigor Dimitrov rallied for a shocking upset of 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer at the US Open, the lowest-ranked New York semi-finalist in 28 years advancing to face Daniil Medvedev. The 78th-ranked Bulgarian, who had dropped all seven prior meetings with Federer, on Tuesday made a dramatic fightback to defeat the Swiss third seed 3-6 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2 at Arthur Ashe Stadium and will face Russian fifth seed Medvedev in Friday’s semis. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh”I’m just happy,” Dimitrov said. “The only thing I was telling myself was to stay in the match. Physically I was feeling pretty good. I was hitting some shots against him that were hard to hit.” Dimitrov reached his first US Open semi-final to match the deepest Slam runs of his career from Wimbledon in 2014 and the 2017 Australian Open. Not since 174th-ranked Jimmy Connors reached the 1991 quarter-finals had New York seen so lowly a figure on the ATP ratings list reach the last four. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterDimitrov is also the lowest-ranked Slam semi-finalist since 94th-rated Rainer Schuettler of Germany at Wimbledon in 2008. Federer, a five-time US Open champion who has not won at Flushing Meadows since 2008, breezed through the first set in 29 minutes and appeared to have withstood the danger until Dimitrov opened the fourth set with a break. Federer was denied on five break points in the 10th game of the fourth set and Dimitrov held to force a fifth set. “I was trying to stay in that game and make him stay on the court as much as possible. After that he started slowing down a little bit,” Dimitrov said. “It’s a best of five sets. Anything can happen.” Federer went off the court for a private medical timeout to treat his upper back near his neck. “This is Grigor’s moment, not my body’s moment,” Federer said. Dimitrov broke Federer twice on the way to a 4-0 lead in the final set and the 38-year-old Swiss star had no effective reply, foiled by 61 unforced errors in falling after three hours and 12 minutes. “It’s OK. It’s how it goes,” Federer said. “I tried my best. I fought with what I had and that’s it.” Federer would have become the oldest Slam semi-finalist since Jimmy Connors at age 39 at the 1991 US Open. Medvedev defeated three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (8/6) 6-3 3-6 6-1 to reach his first major semi-final, shaking off a sore left quadriceps that made him contemplate quitting the match. Now he gets two days of rest. “That’s huge advantage regarding what happened to my leg,” Medvedev said. “It should be OK.” Medvedev took a medical timeout, had the area taped and took a painkiller. “In the fourth set, I started feeling the painkiller and started moving better,” he said. “For sure I hope to be ready for the semis.” Medvedev has maintained momentum from a sizzling August in which he reached three ATP finals, winning a title at Cincinnati and finishing runner-up in Montreal and Washington. Medvedev, 23, is the youngest US Open semi-finalist since Novak Djokovic in 2010 and Russia’s first Slam semi-finalist since Mikhail Youzhny at the 2010 US Open. Dimitrov and Medvedev have split two prior matches, Dimitrov winning at Queen’s in 2017 and Medvedev avenging the loss a few weeks later in Washington. “He has been having a tremendous summer,” Dimitrov said of Medvedev. “I know his game. I’m just going to try and recover and reassess the match first and prepare from then on for Daniil. He’s a tough player. He’s tricky.” Wawrinka, foiled in a bid for his second US Open title in four seasons, said he did not think Medvedev would be holding the trophy on Sunday. “He can, but I don’t think he will. I think it’s going to be really difficult,” Wawrinka said. “Because he looks to start to be tired, and he has to beat some more tougher player in the semi-final and then in the final.” In Wednesday’s quarter-finals, Spanish second seed Rafael Nadal, an 18-time Grand Slam champion, faces Argentine 20th seed Diego Schwartzman and French 13th seed Gael Monfils plays Italian 24th seed Matteo Berrettini.last_img read more
