Global Petroleum Reports Narrowed FY 2017 Pretax Loss

By Oliver Griffin

Global Petroleum Ltd. (GBP.AU) on Wednesday reported a narrowed pretax loss for the year and said that it remained confident of making a key investment in due course.

The company said its loss in the financial year ended June 30 was $1.9 million, 21% narrower than a year earlier. Its cash balance for the year was $8 million, down from $10.4 million.

Global Petroleum said that its principal activities for the year consisted of oil-and-gas exploration in locations including Italy and Namibia. It said that it continues to evaluate opportunities such as asset purchases and potential joint ventures in order to balance its existing portfolio.

Shares in London at 0808 GMT were up 2% at 2.795 pence.

OECD Urges Politicians to Step Up as Central Banks Eye Stimulus Exit Door
By Paul Hannon 

A pickup in global economic growth will prove short-lived unless governments increase spending on projects that boost productivity and push through overhauls that deal with the legacy of the financial crisis, including the problem of " zombie" firms.

That is the verdict of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in its quarterly report Wednesday. The Paris-based think tank's new growth forecasts come as leading central banks prepare to wind down their stimulus measures and places the onus on politicians to take advantage of a synchronized upturn to tackle the enduring problems of insufficient investment, weak productivity and wages growth, and high levels of income inequality.

The OECD said the global economy would grow by 3.5% this year and 3.7% next, up from 3.1% in 2016. It left its growth forecasts for the U.S. unchanged, but raised its projections for both France and Italy, although it expects Germany to continue to lead the eurozone's recovery. It now expects the French economy to grow 1.7% this year and 1.6% next, while Italy is seen expanding by 1.4% and 1.2% respectively.

"Headwinds from the recent euro appreciation on activity are expected to be modest," it said.

While central banks have spent the past nine years supporting demand growth, the OECD now wants to switch the focus to policies that boost supply, or the economy's capacity to produce goods and services.

"We want to exhort policy makers to undertake reforms that are needed to ensure productivity growth is more robust going forward," said Catherline Mann, the OECD chief economist who has worked at the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Council of Economic Advisers.

Its only significant growth downgrade was to India, reflecting the impact of the new Goods and Services Tax. Even so, it still expects the Indian economy to grow by 6.7% this year and 7.2% next.

With global economic growth strengthening, central banks see less need for stimulus. Later Wednesday, the Federal Reserve is expected to announce the beginning of a years-long program to shrink its bond portfolio. The European Central Bank is likely to announce in October that it will start to reduce its monthly purchases of government bonds early in 2018. And November is likely to see the first increase in the Bank of England's key interest rate since 2007. If each delivers, it will be the first time that they have moved together to withdraw stimulus since adopting extraordinary measures to revive economies scarred by the financial crises of recent years.

Ms. Mann said central banks now need to look to the demands of financial stability, having previously privileged growth. The OECD noted signs that investors may be taking too many risks, including equity prices that are high relative to expected earnings, "compressed" yields on corporate bonds and "very low" levels of stock market volatility.

"That balance has now shifted and it's time to take the foot off the accelerator," she said.

However, the OECD warned that shrinking the huge portfolios of assets acquired by central banks since the crisis "represent a significant challenge."

"To minimize financial market volatility and global spillovers, central banks should opt to reduce their assets gradually and in a predictable way," it said.

The think tank, which provides advice to its 35 member governments, stressed that the change in focus for central banks doesn't mean the work of boosting growth has been completed. Instead, that responsibility has shifted to politicians. In addition to investment spending on education and infrastructure that boosts productivity in the long run, the OECD said it was time to pass new laws to boost dynamism, including rules that would make it easier to close down "zombie" firms.

"Strong political commitment is needed to secure robust medium-term growth and ensure its benefits are widely shared," it said.

HeidelbergCement's Italian Subsidiary to Buy Cementir Italia
 
   By Marc Bisbal Arias 
 

HeidelbergCement AG (HEI.XE) said Wednesday that subsidiary Italcementi has entered into an agreement with Cementir Holding SpA (CEM.MI) to buy the latter's Italy cement business in a transaction valued at 315 million euros ($378.4 million).

The German company said the acquisition includes all of Cementir Italia's cement and concrete operations, as well as fully-controlled subsidiaries Cementir Sacci and Betontir.

The deal is expected to close in early 2018 and be financed with free-cash flow.

Cementir Italia's business includes five integrated cement plants and two cement grinding centers with a total capacity of 5.5 million tons a year, as well as a network of terminals and concrete plants. Italcementi will integrate the operations into its own network.

HeidelbergCement said it expects "run-rate cost synergies" of EUR25 million per year. Cost synergies generally mean savings in operating costs.

Expected net investments for 2017 and 2018 remain unchanged, HeidelbergCement said, adding that it intends to dispose of non-core assets in its portfolio review to offset the acquisition.

Italy's 5 Star Courts Broader Support -- WSJ
By Giovanni Legorano 

This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of WSJ.com articles that also appeared in the U.S. print edition of The Wall Street Journal (September 21, 2017).

ROME -- Italy's antiestablishment 5 Star Movement is picking a new standard-bearer with a key qualification: He looks and talks like a mainstream politician.

The 5 Star Movement -- one of Europe's largest upstart political parties -- is set to choose Luigi Di Maio, the 31-year-old deputy speaker of the lower house of parliament, as its candidate for prime minister in Italy's next general election, which must occur by May. He is running in an online vote this week, with the winner to be anointed on Saturday as 5 Star kicks off its campaign.

In Mr. Di Maio, an observant Catholic who prefers a suit and tie to the jeans worn by many 5 Star proponents, the group is choosing a figure who could pick off voters angry with established parties but wary of the movement's firebrands and its more radical ideas.

"We absolutely don't want to create a populist, extremist and anti-European Italy," he told a group of Italian business leaders early this month. "Our objective is creating (and) building, not destroying....We have always repudiated populism."

Fuelled by discontent over the country's slow growth, high unemployment and a political class many voters see as self-serving, the movement founded by comedian Beppe Grillo has rocketed to prominence. It took a quarter of votes in its first national election bid in 2013, then won mayoral races in Rome, Turin and elsewhere last year.

Even as anti-establishment movements fade elsewhere in Europe, the movement's popularity has remained robust despite a series of high-profile stumbles from its outsider politicians, who have included students and unemployed workers.

But the rise of a man whose first paid regular job was as a member of parliament has fed into criticism that the movement -- which brandishes inexperience like a badge of honor -- is unprepared to govern.

Nicola Biondo, a former 5 Star spokesman, said Mr. Di Maio "embodies the weaknesses of the movement....Giving large responsibilities to people who have never had any responsibility -- they are just too young -- will be a disaster."

Mr. Di Maio said that regardless of the party's experience, Italy needs change. The 5 Star Movement "wanted more time to learn, to grow, to demonstrate it can run this country," he said during an appearance at Harvard University in May. "But given that experts have reduced the country to these conditions, we had no time." Mr. Di Maio declined requests for an interview.

An Ipsos poll this month for the Corriere della Sera daily asking voter intentions put support for the 5 Star Movement at about 27%, matching the Democratic Party -- whose Paolo Gentiloni is currently premier -- as Italy's largest.

The movement has vowed tougher anticorruption laws and a minimum guaranteed income if it emerges from upcoming elections as head of a minority government.

Some of its most prominent figures, chiefly Mr. Grillo, have called for Italy's exit from the eurozone and a repudiation of the fiscal constraints imposed by the European Union. Mr. Di Maio, while promoting many of the same ideas, has taken a less incendiary tack.

In a step toward clarifying the movement's position on a signature issue, Mr. Di Maio told business leaders this month that a 5 Star government would view a referendum on Italy's membership in the euro as "a last resort."

"We are not against the European Union," said Mr. Di Maio. "We want to stay at the table and renegotiate some rules that are suffocating our economy."

The remark cut through a cacophony of voices within the 5 Star Movement on its position as the group works to refine its program. It also comes after hardline anti-euro positions came up short in elections in the Netherlands and France.

A spokesman for the movement didn't return a request for comment.

Mr. Di Maio, a technology aficionado who made his first activist splash with a web-based documentary supporting a protest by shopkeepers in his hometown of Pomigliano d'Arco, helped found local 5 Star chapters there while studying law at university.

In 2010, while still a university student, Mr. Di Maio ran for city council in his hometown outside Naples as a candidate for the newly formed group. He lost, garnering just 70 votes.

In parliamentary elections three years later, Mr. Di Maio rode the populist wave that saw 5 Star win a quarter of all votes cast and 17% of seats in Italy's legislature.

He won 189 votes in an online vote among 5 Star activists held to choose parliamentary candidates, enough to put his name on the ballot. He went on to win a parliamentary seat and became deputy speaker of Italy's lower house, at 26 years old.

He later admitted his shock at his rapid ascent. "I was dazed, tired, confused," he told Italian weekly L'Espresso.

"He decided to run for that role, but he didn't fully understand what it would involve," recalls Dario De Falco, a longtime friend who became involved in political organizing in high school with Mr. Di Maio.

Defenders say Mr. Di Maio has performed well as deputy speaker of the parliament. "From the very beginning he managed the works of the chamber with a steady hand," said Danilo Toninelli, a 5 Star deputy and close ally of Mr. Di Maio

Even as Mr. Di Maio provides a moderate face for the party at the election, 5 Star still supports unorthodox ideas.

For instance, the 5 Star Movement opposed the government's decision this year to require children to be vaccinated to attend school. The group also supports a reduced workweek that it says will help create jobs -- youth unemployment is at 36%.

With Mr. Di Maio, "they are trying to show they can be in charge," says Giovanni Orsina, professor at Rome's Luiss University. But "behind the facade, who knows what's there."
