    Reuters reveals China drafting rules to ease property developers’ use of escrow funds; markets react 


    Business & Finance

    Chinese property developers’ shares and bonds extended gains after Reuters revealed that China is drafting nationwide rules to make it easier for property developers to access pre-sale funds held in escrow accounts in its latest move to ease a severe cash crunch in the embattled sector. Sources told Reuters that the new rules would help developers meet debt obligations and pay suppliers and finance operations by letting them use the funds in escrow that are currently controlled by the municipal governments with no central oversight. Beijing aims to roll out the new rules by as early as the end of January in a push to prevent a wider crisis.

    Market Impact

    The Hang Seng Mainland Properties index rose 1.6% in afternoon trading after the Reuters report and ended nearly 6% higher. Chinese property developers Shimao Group Holdings, Sunac China Holdings and Country Garden Holdings led the sector’s gains, closing up 11.3%, 7.6% and 8.3%, respectively. U.S. dollar bonds issued by developers, including Sunac and Country Garden, also rose following the report.

    Reuters exclusively reports U.S. examining Alibaba’s cloud unit for national security risks; market reacts 


    Technology

    Reuters exclusively reported that the Biden administration is reviewing its cloud business to determine whether it poses a risk to U.S. national security. The focus of the probe is on how the company stores U.S. clients’ data – including personal information and intellectual property – and whether the Chinese government could gain access to it. If regulators ultimately decide to block transactions between American firms and Alibaba Cloud, it will damage the bottom line of one of the company’s most promising businesses and deal a blow to reputation of the company as a whole.

    Market Impact

    U.S.-listed shares of China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba fell more than 4%.

    Reuters reveals FTSE 100 posts biggest annual gains in five years 


    Business & Finance

    Reuters exclusively reported that the UK’s FTSE 100 ended 2021 with its best annual performance in five years on the back of gains in commodity-linked and industrial stocks, despite a decline in Dec. 31’s holiday-thinned trading. The benchmark index fell 0.3%, hit by concerns around surging COVID-19 cases as the United Kingdom reported a record rise in daily infections. British blue-chip shares gained 14.3% in 2021 but underperformed their European and U.S. peers, which have scaled multiple record highs.

    Reuters reveals Turkey hikes energy prices; Istanbul monthly inflation highest in a decade 


    Business & FinanceEconomyEnergyPolitics

    Reuters exclusively reported that inflation soared by the most in at least a decade in Turkey’s biggest city, Istanbul, last month after President Tayyip Erdogan’s government sharply raised nationwide electricity and natural gas prices for the new year. Prices also jumped for petrol, car insurance and some bridge tolls, adding more strain to an economy facing surging inflation and a currency crisis that was triggered by a series of unorthodox interest rate cuts. The Energy Market Regulatory Authority, citing high global energy inflation, said electricity prices were raised by as much as 125% for high-demand commercial users and by around 50% for lower-demand households for 2022.

    Reuters reveals U.S. private payrolls surge as Omicron threat looms over economy 


    EconomyEntertainment & LifestyleHealthScience

    Reuters exclusively reported that U.S. private payrolls increased more than expected in December as a result of underlying labor market strength, but skyrocketing COVID-19 infections could slow momentum in the months ahead. The surge in private hiring in the ADP National Employment Report on Wednesday was based on data collected in mid-December just as the Omicron variant was sweeping across the country, causing some events and hundreds of flights to be canceled.

    Reuters reveals SEC’s Texas office probes banks over disclosures on guns, fossil fuel 


    Business & FinanceEconomyEnergyEnvironmentPolitics

    Reuters exclusively reported that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Texas office launched a preliminary probe into lenders’ disclosures about their policies on hot-button issues like climate change and gunmakers, according to two people familiar with the matter. The inquiry appears to relate to two Texas laws, enacted last year, banning state entities from working with companies that discriminate against firearms or fossil fuel companies, the sources said. Amid pressure from investors and employees, banks have become active on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, eschewing gunmakers, backing racial equity projects and pledging to phase out fossil fuel lending, sparking a backlash from Republican lawmakers who worry sectors of the economy may lose access to credit.

    Reuters reveals Shell’s Nigerian oil assets attract interest from local firms 


    Business & FinanceEconomyEnergy

    Reuters revealed that at least five Nigerian oil and gas companies are preparing to submit bids this month for Royal Dutch Shell’s onshore oilfields in a sale that could fetch up to $3 billion, three sources involved in the process told Reuters. Shell started talks with the Nigerian government last year about selling its stake in the West African country’s onshore fields, where it has been active since the 1930s, as part of a global drive to reduce its carbon emissions. The sale has drawn interest from independent Nigerian oil and gas firms including Seplat Energy, Sahara Group, Famfa Oil, Troilus Investments Limited and Nigeria Delta Exploration and Production (NDEP).
