Israeli billionaires company faces money woes

first_imgAssociated PressJERUSALEM (AP) – One of Israel’s wealthiest businessmen may quickly be going from riches to rags, and experts warn he could drag Israel’s economy down with him.Nochi Dankner, a favorite of Israel’s business community who is often credited with helping rescue Israel’s economy at the height of a Palestinian uprising, is struggling to keep his mammoth holding company above water. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “It’s a domino effect,” said Doron. “Creditors would lose money. A lot of people would lose jobs. It would be a great tragedy.”The 58-year-old billionaire’s downturn has come swiftly.Born to an aristocratic Israeli family with a powerful investment firm, Dankner made a mark in 1999 when he sold his shares in the firm to his relatives for $100 million.His timing was right. A year later, a Palestinian uprising erupted, paralyzing Israel’s economy and causing the shares in his family’s business to tank.At the height of the uprising, Dankner and his partners borrowed millions of dollars from Israeli banks and bought IDB Holding Corp.“No one understood who would buy during the crisis … it was a deal that amazed everyone,” said Stella Korin Lieber, a commentator at the Globes financial newspaper. “He signaled the end of the crisis.”Under Dankner’s leadership, IDB became Israel’s largest holding company, and Dankner became a celebrity. Last year, he garnered 11th place on Forbes Magazine’s ranking of wealthy Israelis. He was known to travel in a private jet and to lunch with his longtime friend, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. IDB Holding Corp., which controls a large piece of the Israeli economic pie _ a large cellphone company, a major supermarket chain, an insurance company and a cement producer monopoly, among other concerns _ announced over the weekend that it may not be able to pay tens of millions of dollars of debts in the coming year.The plight of Dankner has raised concern that his bondholders could lose on their investments and Israelis could see their retirement funds, heavily exposed to IDB investments, in danger.“We are now going through difficult times. It’s not easy for any of us,” Dankner began a letter to employees last weekend.Israel’s finance minister, Yuval Steinitz, sought to douse the flames, estimating a “less than one in a thousand” chance that Israeli citizens’ pensions would be affected.Economists forecast a much gloomier picture should Dankner’s company founder. Because so much of Israel’s economy is controlled by Dankner’s holding company, Israel is in more danger than the U.S. economy was in during the credit crisis of the late 2000s, said Daniel Doron, director of the Israel Center for Social and Economic Progress.

The company owes about $425 million to bondholders and $75 million to Israeli banks, Israel’s Haaretz daily reported. IDB Holding Corp. is asking for more time to find another investor for the company.At a meeting of bondholders Monday, one bondholder told Israel’s Channel 10 TV that Dankner should dip into in his own wealth to repay his debts.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

His public image was as a handsome, mild-mannered man with a spiritual side, traveling to Nepal to study Buddhism and forging a close relationship with a Kabbalistic healer in Israel known as the “X-ray Rabbi.”In 2006, as rockets rained down on northern Israel during its war with Hezbollah in Lebanon, Dankner visited Israelis in bomb shelters and donated large sums for their welfare.Then he became overconfident, Korin Lieber said.In 2007, he and another Israeli billionaire invested in plans to build a Las Vegas casino when U.S. real estate prices were at their peak, and the project quickly tanked. From 2008-2010, a Dankner subsidiary bought shares in the Swiss multinational bank Credit Suisse, but last year lost millions of dollars in the deal. He also bought Maariv, an unprofitable Israeli daily newspaper, in what was seen as more of an ego trip than a smart business decision.Then last summer, hundreds of thousands of Israelis took to the streets to protest the country’s high cost of living.Dankner’s picture was plastered on protesters’ posters _ one of many business tycoons accused of monopolizing much of the Israeli market, keeping prices high.

What do you like about him Hes big You hate to

What do you like about him Hes big You hate to

first_imgWhat do you like about him?“He’s big. You hate to say — his features look like Larry’s (Fitzgerald). He’s a big, strong guy but he can catch. He gets more physical and learns to play faster because he dominated where he played at. It’s catching up to playing with guys that fast.”Did you watch any of Kurt Warner’s Hall of Fame induction speech last night?“No, I missed it. We were in meetings.”Would you like to see Khalil Mack play against Humphries on Saturday?“He’s going to have to play him in the regular season if we play him, so yeah, that don’t matter. I hope he does.”How disappointing is it not having Brown practicing considering he came into camp healthy and feeling good?“Yeah, it’s a shame because he was really getting better. Hopefully it’s gone and he can finish out the rest of the preseason.”Is there always going to be that concern with him because he has struggled to stay healthy?“That’s more Steve’s (Keim) concern.”How has Budda Baker been in picking up two positions?“He’s been fine. He has a mental error a day, but it’s a lot of volume putting on him, too, to play two positions but he’s playing extremely well.” GLENDALE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through.“Injury-wise, D.J. Humphries will miss today. He strained a hamstring yesterday in the heat. I don’t think it’s much of anything. He should be ready for the game (against the Raiders). Probably the only guys, right now, that will definitely miss the game: Philip Wheeler (undisclosed injury) and Aaron Dobson (hamstring). Everybody else we anticipate to have. ‘Smoke’ (John Brown) we should have back Tuesday. Jarvis Jones (back) might be the only other one. We hope he’s playing, though.” Might Jones be out longer because of his past back issues?“No. He just got an epidural and finally found out why the pain was in his leg.”That’s encouraging news despite all the injuries you’ve had.“Oh yeah; they’ve been minor. Obviously, T.J. (Logan) that was the only big one.”Last year you kept nine defensive linemen, what’s your thought process at that position right now?“It’s a good battle again. The two guys we picked up the day before the game (Peli Anau and David Moala) went out there and played really well. Kudos to them. They were in good shape and pretty smart. But, it’ll depend. We did not want to give up on Olsen Pierre last year so he was kind of the ninth. He was better than everybody else at their position, so we kept an extra guy at the position and went short somewhere else.”Coming into training camp, how much of the roster can you pen in instead of pencil in?“Seventy-percent, probably.”Do you know how you’re going to divide the quarterback snaps against the Raiders?“Drew (Stanton) will take the second quarter and Blaine (Gabbert) will take the rest of the game.”What have you seen from Krishawn Hogan so far?“He’s improving every day. It’s a big step from where he came from, especially the amount of volume of learning. He starting to play a little faster and show his skills. He’s got a chance.” Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) talks with Jermaine Gresham (84) during NFL football training camp Saturday, July 29, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 0 Comments   Share   What does it do for your defense to have him playing like that?“Yeah, it’s what you’re looking for. He was defensive player of the year before he got hurt (in 2015). We’re looking for that back.”When you look back at that year can you point to his injury as to explain the team’s struggles?“Yeah, our defense was never the same because he does so much. Now you had to plug in two guys for one and at that time in the season they don’t have the experience to do it, at that level.”Is Ifeanyi Momah on a pretty good pace to make the roster?“If he continues showing up in games. The big thing for him is he’s blocking better. We know he can catch passes, but to play tight end for us you got to block.”Could you possibly keep two tight ends instead of three maybe?“That would be hard to do with being a two-tight end offense. We don’t carry fullbacks so we kind of need more than two tight ends.”How is Ricky Seals-Jones progressing?“Yeah, for a wideout sticking his face in the fire for the first time. He’s not afraid. He will fight you and he’s getting better every single day.”Is Larry Fitzgerald back?“Yes.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twittercenter_img Because of Brown’s health, do you have an idea of how many receivers you might keep on the roster?“Yeah, again, that sixth spot versus the fifth running back, fourth tight end, eighth defensive lineman, ninth corner, sixth safety. There’s a lot of competition for those last five spots right now and special teams, that will determine everything.”It’s almost like their competing against each other at totally different positions.“Oh, they really are. They always do. Special teams is the kicker. You might be the fifth safety, if you’re a dynamo special teamer, I’m keeping you over a fifth running back who might be a hell of a player but he ain’t on special teams because he’s not going to dress on Sunday.”Considering all the free-agent losses the defense suffered in the offseason, how do you feel about that unit?“Oh gosh, I felt great about this defense since spring. The additions of Karlos (Dansby) and Antoine (Bethea) and then the draft picks, we should be much, much better defensively.”Does Tyrann Mathieu look like he’s back to himself?“Every day he’s starting to get an interception, so yeah, he’s getting his hands on balls but I want to see it in games.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more

after their souring friendship left the entire country fixated Related News As the Kapil Sharma show plays out ad nauseum this time away from our television screens it’s not possible to avoid it unless as the saying goes you’re living under a rock While we all wonder whether Sunil Grover should be back on the show after being abused on a flight and apparently having a shoe hurled at him we can agree it all sounds really messy The camps are divided and as the headlines go it’s Team Sunil (with Kapil’s childhood friend Chandan Prabhakar in his corner) versus Team Kapil Even as the two tweet charges apologies and hurt feelings they take care to sign off with love But let’s face it Kapil will find other performers and Team Sunil is sure to find other work sooner rather than later Read:Kapil Sharma slapped Sunil Grover hit him with a shoe Why are we so bothered in that case Apart from the fact that such clickbait headlines provide a break from work it’s a tale of friendship gone sour They’re “brothers” who are warring and we Indians are looking for closure a happily-ever-after or all’s well that ends well in true Bollywood-style But they’re not really brothers are they They’re colleagues who work together and in the real world scenario the fracas should be something for an HR department to deal with Hurt feelings Keep that for your therapist In the world we live in where startups are founded by friends or the first source of investment usually comes from “friends families and fools” it becomes critical to learn to separate business from the personal Otherwise it can all unravel very fast as in the Shopclues case where Sandeep Aggarwal sued his co-founders Sanjay Sethi and estranged wife Radhika for defamation accompanied by an emotionally charged Facebook post It’s a timely reminder to invest in relationships outside work Don’t live in a bubble where you’re too busy meeting deadlines and using the leisure hours to socialise with colleagues Pick up the phone call up that friend you haven’t spoken to in a while You don’t have to attend every single office party be there for every offsite event that takes place or share the lunch ‘dabba’ daily with colleagues Catch up with your family and those you share a past with Or at the first sign of trouble when people close ranks at work you’ll be left with no one to call Remember too a drunken night with friends can be a great story for a party but if you lose control at work it can become watercooler gossip or depending on the people involved the stuff of urban legend So if you want to avoid that be sure you can hold your drink or stick to drinking with a tight group of friends after work There are some great friendships that happen at work but in my experience those are usually the ones that last even when you’re done working together So Kapil and Sunil have nothing to worry about…even if their professional equation goes kaput if their friendship is real it’ll survive Isn’t that what matters in the end It’s time we all got back to our lives And made that phone call to a long-lost friend What actually happened between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover When the cast and crew of The Kapil Sharma Show got into the 12-hour flight from Melbourne to Mumbai on March 16 little did they know that friendship and the show itself will unravel by the time plane’s touchdown According to a Hindustan Times report after consuming an entire bottle of Glenfiddich whisky Kapil slapped Sunil and threw a shoe at him Kapil also threatened to destroy the careers of Sunil and other cast members As per the eyewitness “Sunil is numbed by the way Kapil assaulted him during a flight from Melbourne where they did a stage show He was merely trying to calm down Kapil who was drunk and hurling abuses at another team member Chandan (Prabhakar)” Sources also added that Kapil even hurled abuses at colleagues Ali Asgar aka Naani and Kiku Sharda calling them “per day artistes” or daily wage
