The British mobile giant’s 44 per cent stake was valued at €7.75bn and it will receive a final dividend of €200m once the transaction is completed within the next three months. Vodafone said £4bn of the proceeds would be returned to investors via a share buyback, with the remainder being used to pay down its debt pile. Sources close to the firm said Vodafone boss Vittorio Colao had extracted a “good price” during negotiations that ran into yesterday evening. Last month, Vivendi indicated that it would be unwilling to pay anything north of £6bn for the 44 per cent of SFR it does not already own. The deal implies an enterprise value for SFR of around 6.7 times earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (Ebitda) – higher than the 5.5 times that is the norm for European telecoms companies. Colao said the decision to sell SFR was in keeping with his strategy of “realising maximum value from [Vodafone’s] non-controlled assets”.He added: “The sale of our stake in SFR, at an attractive multiple, represents a significant further step in the execution of this strategy.”Vodafone’s holding in SFR contributed £573m to its adjusted operating profit in the year to 31 March 2010, and £284m in the six months to 30 September 2010.The pair also hammered out the terms of a new two-year commercial partnership that will enable Vodafone customers to use SFR signal when in France. Vodafone, which has already sold its minority interests in China and Japan, is now likely to turn its attention to divesting its Polish assets. Analysts estimate its 24.4 per cent stake in Poland’s Polkomtel could be worth about €1bn. Meanwhile, Vivendi said it would be able to hike its dividend thanks to the extra profits it will book following completion of the deal. Last week, Vodafone bought Essar out of its Indian venture for $5bn, in a move that paves the way for an eventual flotation of the firm, according to sources close to Vodafone.

It wants the sector to encourage everyone with the right skills into the profession and stop excluding people who don’t have a university degree from applying for fundraising jobs.To achieve this, it is working with recruitment agencies and fundraising managers to get them to review their job descriptions, and challenging organisations calling for degree-level qualifications to abandon this requirement and replace it with more meaningful criteria.In its Manifesto, it is asking fundraisers to do three things:Review your own organisation’s job descriptions and commit to removing this requirement.Speak to peers and colleagues (especially those requiring degree-level qualifications) to call on them to review their job descriptions, helping them to make their fundraising teams more diverse and inclusive.Include the #NonGraduatesWelcome hashtag when advertising roles.

Home Energy RFA to President: Build on Farm Bill Success by Protecting RFS Bob dinneenRenewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen says President Obama is absolutely correct to champion the economic benefits of the Agricultural Act of 2014 on rural America. He says creating jobs and economic opportunity is challenging in rural communities – which is why the President has long supported and appreciated the value of the American biofuels industry. Under the RFS – Dinneen says the U.S. ethanol industry created and supported more than 386-thousand jobs in the past year. Dinneen adds that the economic benefits of the RFS aren’t limited to rural communities. He says the RFS is helping Americans coast-to-coast, border-to-border save money by reducing the price of gasoline by an average of a dollar per gallon in 2012 and 2013. Source: NAFB News Serivce Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter RFA to President: Build on Farm Bill Success by Protecting RFS With imports of foreign gasoline dropping – Dinneen says the RFS is also helping the nation become more secure at the economic and national security levels. To build on the success of the farm bill – Dinneen says RFA calls on President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the RFS and restore the 2014 conventional ethanol requirement to its statutory level. If the EPA’s proposal to decrease the conventional ethanol portion of the RFS becomes a reality – Dinneen says rural America will be hit the hardest. He says farm income will fall, corn prices will sink and land value will fall. Like the farm bill – he says this may be a long, hard fight – but RFS will continue fighting for American farmers, consumers and rural communities.

The Urban Run will be a well run event, catering for everyone from the elite athlete to the casual walker.“It will help to raise much needed funds for St Michael’s and our charity partner, Crumlin Children’s Hospital.”The Urban Run will take in O’Callaghan Strand, North Circular Road, Clanmorris Avenue, the riverbank to Clonmacken Roundabout and Condell Road, a scenic route that will allow participants to savour some of the city’s sights.There will be several events, including a 10k run, 10k walk, 5k walk/run and a junior 5k walk. More than 300 people are expected to register for the event, a figure that has well exceeded their original estimate.Julie said: “We hope that it will be a good, safe and enjoyable run for those involved. About 20 per cent will be looking to set personal bests so it gives them what they want.“It also gives casual runners a chance to enjoy it and to look around at the city, so it gives them something a bit different.”Julie was one of six people on the organising committee, which had put 18 months of work into the event, and she described the process as a “gargantuan task”.
