Renault Credit: loans of $ 10,000 to 2% over three years to buy a car
The main difficulty that individuals are being found to buy a car and at the same time benefit from discounts, promotions and grants the government and manufacturers, is whether or not you have all the money in acquiring financing.
And the financial crisis has caused financial institutions give very little credit, at interest rates hovering around 10% and above require a lot of requirements to give us money, so it is very difficult to buy a car in these conditions.
To alleviate this problem and yet this is temporary, the French manufacturer Renault through its financier in Spain has launched an initiative that will provide financing for the purchase of a car. Thus we have until 30 September, the French manufacturer will provide loans up to a maximum of 10,000 euros to an interest rate only 2% taking into account that financial institutions can not find it cheaper 8% -9%, and within three years.
This is an initiative from Renault covering every vehicle in the brand and it is targeted both for individuals and companies not autonomous and fleet owners. Obviously this measure in addition to existing rebates and subsidies in order to increase their sales and that stakeholders will be attracted because the interests are minimal.
Kraft launched a bid for Cadbury
The U.S. power company Kraft Foods (KFT) (Oreo, Milka, Lu, Chips Ahoy etc. ..) today launched a takeover bid for Cadbury (CBRY) (manufacturer of chewing gum and chocolates possessing brands like Trident, Bubbaloo or Halls among others).
While a year ago, the entry in September, marked the demise of corporate transactions, it appears that this September we are starting to emerge with such force, especially in regard to acquisitions made by industrial enterprises with a powerful market position that exploit the situation to acquire rivals and strengthen their strategic positioning (the last was the acquisition of Marvel by Disney).
In this case the offer made by Kraft Foods has been at 745 pence per share from Cadbury, which is valuing the company at approximately 10,200 million British pounds. Kraft will pay 300 pence per share in cash and the rest offering 0.2589 shares of Kraft for each share of Cadbury (the offer part payment in shares seems to be one of the new guidelines in this post credit crunch).
Traditional media and citations to blogs
It confirms what many sensed, at least in the U.S., a reporter from the NY Times has recognized the company’s stated policy of not giving credit to blogs or to cite them and especially after about a month ago the Washington Post put the cry in the sky after a blogger a story echoed developed by the newspaper, that if quoting and Link, and paint of parasites bloggers.
To me this controversy reminds me a bit carelessly, it would be a courtesy that the traditional press, or journalists, to link the sources of inspiration as do many blogs, but do not only reflects their enormous contradictions in a new competitive environment they do not know still very well how to drive.
