Key numbers in the Volkswagen emissionscheating scandal

by The Associated Press Posted Jun 28, 2016 1:09 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 28, 2016 at 2:05 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Key numbers in the Volkswagen emissions-cheating scandal Some key numbers related to Volkswagen’s admission that it programmed diesel cars to cheat on emissions tests:— 475,000: Number of cars with 2-litre diesel engines in the U.S. that Volkswagen has agreed to buy back or repair under a settlement released Tuesday. The settlement will likely get final approval from a federal court judge this fall.— 80,000: Number of Volkswagens with 3-litre diesel engines in the U.S. They aren’t covered by this settlement.— 2009-2016: Model years affected by the diesel scandal.— $12,500 to $44,000: Range of values for the affected Volkswagen diesels before the scandal became public on Sept. 18, 2015. Owners who sell their cars back to VW will get the clean trade-in value as determined by the National Automobile Dealers Association depending on the model, age, mileage and options on their car.— $5,100 to $10,000: Amount of additional compensation owners will get, whether they opt for a buyback or have Volkswagen fix their cars.— 19 per cent: The amount the average value of a VW diesel has dropped since before the scandal began. In August 2015, the average was $13,196; in May 2016 it was $10,674, according to Kelley Blue Book. The average value of non-diesel VWs dropped 9 per cent in the same period.— 125,205: The numbers of cars the VW brand sold in the U.S. in the first five months of 2016. That’s down 13 per cent from 144,006 in the first five months of 2015.— 38 gallons: The amount of additional gasoline the owner of a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta diesel would have to buy each year if a fix decreases the vehicle’s fuel economy by 3 mpg. The Jetta diesel currently gets 36 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving. If a repair reduces fuel economy by 3 mpg, a driver who drives 15,000 miles per year would have to buy an extra 38 gallons of fuel. That would cost $114, assuming gas is $3 per gallon. VW hasn’t yet submitted a plan to fix the vehicles.— 38 per cent: Five states — California, Texas, Florida, Illinois and New York — accounted for about 38 per cent of all the diesel vehicles VW sold in the U.S. since 2008. read more

PotashCorp and BHP Billiton comment on withdrawal of tender offer

first_imgYesterday Potash Corp of Saskatchewan issued the following statement in response to the announcement by BHP Billiton that it has withdrawn its unsolicited tender offer to acquire PotashCorp: “BHP Billiton’s decision to withdraw its offer underscores the PotashCorp Board of Directors’ unanimous belief that the offer substantially undervalued PotashCorp and failed to reflect both the value of our premier position in a strategically vital industry and our future growth prospects.“We believe our opportunity for growth in the industry is unmatched and we are excited about the future. As the food requirements of our growing global population continue to increase, we believe PotashCorp has the right strategies in place to enhance earnings in the strong market conditions we see unfolding.  Building further value continues to be our primary focus, and with our world-class asset base and proven business strategies, we believe we are well-positioned to exceed the expectations of our customers and deliver compelling value to our shareholders.”“BHP Billiton said it “has determined that the condition of its offer relating to receipt of a net benefit determination by the Minister of Industry under the Investment Canada Act cannot be satisfied, and accordingly, the offer has been withdrawn. A total PotashCorp-related transaction cost of approximately $350 million, of which approximately $250 million related to the $45 billion acquisition financing facility, will be recognised as an exceptional item in the December 2010 interim accounts.”The company maintains that its offer would have resulted in “a significant net benefit to Canada, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick. As a package, the proposed undertakings offered by BHP Billiton in a signed, written submission to the Minister of Industry were unparalleled in substance, scope and duration, reflecting the importance of potash to Canada and Saskatchewan. The company had offered to commit to legally-binding undertakings that would have, among other things, increased employment, guaranteed investment and established the company’s global potash headquarters in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.”The investment commitment included $450 million on exploration and development over the next five years over and above commitments to spending on the Jansen project. An additional $370 million would have been spent on infrastructure funds in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick. BHP Billiton would also have applied for a listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange.BHP Billiton was also prepared to make a commitment to forego tax benefits to which it was legally entitled and, as a condition of the Minister’s approval, BHP Billiton was prepared to remain a member of Canpotex for five years. Both of these undertakings were intended to allay any concerns the Province of Saskatchewan may have had regarding potential losses in revenues.“Further, to give the company an even stronger Canadian presence, BHP Billiton undertook to relocate to Saskatchewan and Vancouver over 200 additional jobs from outside Canada. BHP Billiton would have maintained operating employment at PotashCorp’s Canadian mines at current levels for five years and would have increased overall employment at the combined Canadian potash businesses by 15% over the same period. BHP Billiton also made a number of additional undertakings in relation to Saskatchewanian and Canadian participation in senior management roles within the combined potash business, within a new Potash Advisory Board and also on the Board of BHP Billiton.“Local suppliers would have been guaranteed a full and fair opportunity to provide goods and services and BHP Billiton undertook to spend at least $8 million per annum on community programs, primarily in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick, while raising overall community spending from PotashCorp’s current levels to BHP Billiton’s levels. BHP Billiton also offered to invest in the University of Saskatchewan to create a Mining Centre of Excellence to enhance the province’s mining capabilities and to raise the international profile of both the University and the province.“BHP Billiton was prepared to accept an unprecedented monitoring and compliance regime that would have provided the Government with additional assurances that the undertakings would be complied with, including making available a $250 million performance bond.”During the investment review process, BHP Billiton engaged with officials from the Investment Review Division of Industry Canada. It says that “in view of the reasons underlying the Minister’s interim decision of November 3, the company believes that the Minister of Industry would have required additional undertakings beyond those BHP Billiton had already offered which would have conflicted with BHP Billiton’s business strategy and been counter to creating shareholder value.”BHP Billiton Chief Executive Officer Marius Kloppers expressed disappointment at the outcome. “Unfortunately, despite having received all required anti-trust clearances for the offer, we have not been able to obtain clearance under the Investment Canada Act and have accordingly decided to withdraw the offer. We remain committed to Canada and we plan to develop a significant presence in the potash industry in Saskatchewan. As part of those plans we will continue to progress our Jansen Project and other development opportunities,” he said.“Our core business strategy of diversifying our investments across geographies and commodities differentiates us and, more importantly, continues to deliver value to our shareholders and the communities and countries where we operate. We have an unparalleled portfolio of tier one assets, which we believe can sustain decades of increased production. We plan to invest $15 billion in our global business this financial year and expect our ongoing capital commitment to continue to deliver robust production growth,” Kloppers added.BHP Billiton also announced its intention to continue the company’s strong track record of returning excess capital to shareholders by reactivating the remaining $4.2 billion component of its previously suspended $13.0 billion buy-back program. BHP Billiton Chairman Jac Nasser said: “The decision to reactivate the buy-back program is entirely consistent with our commitment to maintain an appropriate capital structure while we continue to make substantial investments in our growth projects. BHP Billiton has a strong track record of returning capital to shareholders. From 2005, BHP Billiton has completed buy-backs totalling $12.7 billion or 11% of issued capital, and has also paid out $17.9 billion in dividends.”last_img read more

FedEx Uber and Yelp cases bring employee status issue to the fore

first_imgRecent court cases from Uber, Yelp and FedEx have highlighted the difficulties associated with how employers define the difference between ‘employees’ and ‘workers’, and what rights these individuals are entitled to.In the US-based case of Gray vs FedEx Ground Package System, the latter contracts with operators to make deliveries. Under their contracts, the operators were not required to personally drive, but could hire someone else to do so. The plaintiffs brought a suit against FedEx claiming that they should be classed as employees rather than independent contractors, and should therefore receive the benefits employees are entitled to.A court originally ruled in the operators’ favour and awarded damages. FedEx appealed the decision.The original decision was reversed and the case has been submitted to a jury for consideration.The case follows others surrounding employment status, such as those recently involving Uber and Yelp.Yelp reviewers class action dismissedUS District Judge Richard Seeborg dismissed class action brought by a group of Yelp reviewers against the organisation. The reviewers sought to be considered as employees and therefore be compensated as such.In the case of Lily Jeung, et al., vs Yelp, the claimants alleged that they were ‘directed how to write reviews and given other such employee direction’ from Yelp, which also controlled their work schedule and conditions. Two of the three claimants bringing the class action also claimed to have been ‘fired’ by the organisation.In the judgment, Seeborg said it could be inferred that the term ‘hired’ referred to the process by which members of the public could sign up to Yelp to leave reviews, while ‘fired’ referred to user accounts being involuntarily closed.The judge found that submitting reviews could not be considered as performing a service, dismissing the class action case.Uber drivers seek employee status in UK and USIn the UK, Uber faces legal action from the National Union of General and Municipal Workers (GMB) over claims that it has breached its legal duty to provide staff with basic rights around pay, holiday, health and safety, and discipline and grievances.Uber stated that its drivers are ‘partners’ rather than employees, and are therefore not entitled to standard workers’ rights. GMB has called on Uber to ensure that all of its drivers are paid the national minimum wage, given the statutory entitlement to paid holiday, and adhere to legal standards on discipline and grievances.Meanwhile, in California, a US District Court judge has certified class action by certain Uber drivers in the US state against the organisation. In the case of O’Connor et al. vs Uber Technologies, the drivers are seeking to be recognised as employees rather than independent contractors, with support for expenses such as fuel and vehicle maintenance.These cases raise questions about what defines someone as an employee and therefore what rights and benefits they are entitled to. Although the individual cases differ from one another, they also highlight the blurred lines between how different organisations recognise staff.Neena Patel, senior associate, employment and partnership law at Fox Lawyers, said: “Although it’s a preliminary finding, this decision [in O’Connor et al. vs Uber Technologies] has paved the way for further litigation and signalled a potential victory for the drivers, who argue that they are employees and should therefore be protected by employment laws. ”Similar to the approach taken for determining employment status in the UK, the judge held that under Californian law the question of whether the drivers are ultimately employees or independent contractors depends on a mixed question of fact and law. “Uber is now facing similar legal action in the UK. There are significant cost savings in engaging their drivers as self-employed contractors. “In the UK, not only does it allow the organisation to avoid employer’s national insurance contributions (NIC) liability associated with hiring, but it also means that there is no obligation for holiday, sick pay or maternity pay or to contribute towards pension benefits. “When determining employment or worker status, UK employment tribunals look at the substance of the relationship rather than the label that is applied. This is likely to be one of the biggest obstacles to a finding of employment or worker status.”Sarah Henchoz, partner at Allen & Overy, added: “Organisations regularly review the most effective way they can provide services, and this has led to many looking at innovative, and cheaper staffing solutions. This is not necessarily a bad thing for workers; these new models can provide a worker with greater flexibility, allow them to find a work pattern that suits them, and to work for different employers in tandem. However, without the right protections and awareness of what giving up employment rights means, workers can find themselves without job security and losing out on valuable benefits.“These cases highlight the need for employers to take care when using alternative resourcing. What a worker is called is largely irrelevant; it is how that worker is treated in practice and the level of control that the employer has over them that really matters.“It is therefore important that both parties understand the relationship and how it will work in practice. Contractual documentation must clearly set out what rights and obligations each parties have.”Commenting on the legal action facing Uber in the UK, Lyndsey Crook, employment solicitor at Langleys Solicitors, said: “This will be an interesting case about whether Uber’s drivers are genuinely self-employed, or are actually workers or even employees. There are a wide variety of factors that employers need to consider when establishing the true employment status of those they engage to do work for them, including whether the individuals need to carry out their duties personally, the amount of control the employer has in relation to the way the job is done, whether the employer is required to provide work to the individual and whether they must accept it; the level of integration of the drivers into the business, and how they are paid and taxed on earnings.”last_img read more

Spotify Postpones Launch in India

That launch was postponed within the past few days, according to a source close to the situation, with a new date slated for either February or March.A rep for the company declined requests for comment.Some sources say the delay was because the streaming giant has not yet locked down deals for the country with the three major-label groups — Sony, Universal and Warner — although this was not confirmed at press time, and it’s possible that Spotify could have launched in the country without them. Those companies are not as big in India as they are in many other countries, and the announcement earlier this month that Spotify has inked a content deal with T-Series, the country’s leading music and film company, ensures that it will be rolling out with plenty of popular content. However, Spotify’s launch in India hinges on additional deals that are yet to be finalized. While the app will be available in English, the company hopes to expand into different regional music markets in India, a country with 1.33 billion people and dozens of dialects — music in five languages is expected to be available on the initial launch. While the partnership with T-series covers a wide range of commercial Hindi music, including Bollywood soundtracks, the main regional music dominating India includes Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Bengali, which likely means connections with labels specializing in those languages.Just before Spotify’s public listing last March, the company announced that it had opened an office in Mumbai and hired 300 people, but it faces a steep challenge in India. As Variety reported in November, it will launch with an extended free trial period that sources say will be significantly longer than the 30 days of full-access that was offered in Vietnam and South Africa in 2018. While a Financial Times report earlier this month said that the length of the free-trial period was a major cause of the holdup, a source tells Variety that the sticking point is actually the royalty Spotify initially offered for the free-trial period, which is said to be dramatically lower than the local services are paying.Even if the licensing is secured, more obstacles remain. In addition to the fierce competition from local streamers like Saavn and Gaana (which sources say Spotify had considered purchasing in the past), Spotify could be staring down a potentially slow conversion from free to premium, and large sections of the country have broadband difficulties; although Internet access is inexpensive in India, infrastructure is still developing in many areas. However, Spotify faced similar challenges in Indonesia and Africa, and launched in those territories anyway.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more

Steve Ballmer steps down as Xbox One chief after 10 days

first_imgSteve Ballmer may be the CEO of Microsoft, but when Xbox One chief Don Mattrick decided to leave for Zynga, it was Ballmer who stepped into that role. We all knew it was a temporary fix as Ballmer is a business guy, not someone you want pushing games hardware. And after just 10 days in the role, he has stepped down to make way for Julie Larson-Green.Larson-Green is a self-taught programmer with a Master’s degree in Computer Science who joined Microsoft in 1993 as program manager for Visual C++. She’s since worked on the user interface for multiple versions of Office and Internet Explorer, oversaw the Windows 7 launch, and is used to managing over a thousand people in her different roles. There’s no games experience in her past, though.Her new role is heading up the Devices and Studios Engineering Group, which replaces the Interactive Entertainment Business. It’s basically all hardware controlled from a single department, and therefore means she’s in charge of everything Xbox hardware-related. Larson-Green will also control content, too, including games, music, and video. The only area of the Xbox One she won’t oversee is the operating system.It remains to be seen if Larson-Green will become the new face of Xbox One or not. As she is responsible so much she may (and it makes sense to) give that role to another person. And as I’ve said before, Microsoft really needs someone with a good track record of gaming experience in that role–someone gamers can relate to.last_img read more

Announcing DTrace for Windows Insider

first_imgMicrosoft announced on its blog today that the company has added support for DTrace into its Insider builds. The forthcoming Windows 10 feature update will bring support for this debugging and diagnostic tracing tool. The support for DTrace is now possible due to a port of the open-source OpenDTrace project. The port was announced at the Ignite conference last year. The instructions, binaries, and source code for the same are now available for Windows Insider. DTrace lets developers and administrators track kernel function calls, examine properties of running processes, and probe drivers. The DTrace scripting language allows users to specify which information is probed, and how to report that information. Hari Pulapaka, Microsoft group program manager for Windows kernel, says that the merge will happen over the next few months, but in the meantime, Microsoft is making its DTrace source available. Source: Microsoft blog To run DTrace on Windows 10, users need a 64-bit Insider build 18342 or higher, and a valid Insider account. DTrace has to be run in administrator mode. In order to expose the required functionality for DTrace, Microsoft created a new kernel extension driver, traceext.sys. However, Microsoft does not plan to open source Traceext .
