No longer a family affair2014-Oct-28

No longer a family affair

 

Frank Lowy, the Czech refugee who came to Australia via Israel, has done OK for a bloke who started out in this Wholesale Jerseys China country driving a delivery van. He arrived here in 1952 and, soon after, his diligence and businesslike approach to supplying smallgoods impressed another former refugee, John Saunders, who at that time owned a milk bar.

 

The two went into retailing together then decided there was a better quid in developing stores. By 1959 they had opened their first Westfield shopping centre in Blacktown, Sydney. Now Westfield has 123 centres in Australasia, Britain and the US and Cheap NFL Jerseys a massive corporate restructure has been mooted that will turn cheap nfl jerseys two trusts and a holding company into a single $34 billion international behemoth, Westfield Group.

 

All that has made Frank a heck of a lot richer than he imagined he would ever be back in 1954 when he carried a box of sausages into John Saunders's milk bar. Last May he was estimated to be worth $3.7 billion, down from the $4.2 billion of 2002 as a result of the Iraq inspired market collapse early last year.

 

It's not only Frank Lowy Wholesale Jerseys who has cashed in on his remarkable climb. Anyone who had the foresight to cheap jerseys invest $1000 in the fledgling Westfield back in 1960 and had reinvested Nike NFL Jerseys sales all the dividends back into stock would have a holding valued at wait for it $136 million now.

 

Like the Murdochs and the Packers, his contemporaries at the top end of Australia's business world, Frank Lowy has run Westfield as a family affair. Sons Stephen and Peter are joint managing directors and their elder brother David is a non executive board member and looks after family interests outside the group.

 

But Westfield is no longer a corner shop and its family business structure has increasingly been in conflict with the needs of a global player on the property markets.

 

The Lowy family interests in Westfield Holdings has been on the wane for some time. Back in 1998, the family stake was cut from 43 per cent to 30 per cent when the Lowys decided to take about $500 million of their equity out of the company to establish a private nest egg. Succession arrangements are said to involve powerful incentives to keep them actively involved and arrangements were made for elder son David to maintain an active involvement when he no longer wanted an executive position at Westfield.

 

The family hasn't always been good for Westfield. Back in the mid 1980s, when the zeitgeist oozed with the media bug, Frank dropped a cool $450 million on an ill judged foray into the Ten Network. Son Peter came in for some criticism wholesale nfl jerseys over that episode but the family regrouped and, sticking to their knitting ever since, they have been hard to fault.

 

To maintain family influence in major public companies it is necessary to have a leverage point. The Packers have traditionally traded assets between their public and private operations and the Murdochs have issued non voting shares to institutions to ensure the family punches above its equity weight in the boardroom. Frank Lowy took the holding company approach.

 

The Lowys hold around 30 per cent of Westfield Holdings; which in turn, along with the Lowys, has a smaller stake in Westfield Trust and Westfield America Trust. The trust vehicles hold the shopping centres and Westfield Holdings has two revenue streams: management fees for running the property portfolio; and development profits from building and improving shopping centres for the trusts.

 

That structure has been controversial for a long time. Some investors have questioned whether development deals were not a touch too favourable for Westfield Holdings, where the Lowys had their big stake.

 

Nonetheless, returns throughout the group were good enough to overshadow such doubts in the minds of investors.

 

Westfield has been on an extraordinary upward trajectory in the past six years, gaining a major position in the US retail mall market and a toehold in Britain. Since 1998, it has spent $7.4 billion on 44 shopping centres in the US and Britain, including its $2.4 billion part of the $10.5 billion Rodamco purchase.

 

This huge foreign expansion is ultimately the reason for last week's restructure. To continue to grow offshore, Westfield will have to raise money in the US market and US investors don't like the opaque holding company structure. In fact, they dislike it so much that Westfield told analysts this week that if the new structure had been in place in 2002 it could have done the Rodamco deal single Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap handedly with US market support.

 

When Frank Lowy was wholesale jerseys 60, he said he wholesale nfl jerseys would retire at 65. He's now 73 and shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, Lowy, a soccer fan all his life, Nike NFL Jerseys is the man charged with leading the Federal Government backed revolution in the Australian game, a task to which the adjective "herculean" scarcely does justice.

 

One of the founding fathers of the National Soccer League in the mid 1970s (the first genuinely national football league in the country), the Westfield boss walked away from the game in the early 1980s, disillusioned with the ethnic domination of the code.

 

But he has returned and promised a quiet, well thought out revolution. Backed by his "dream team" board (which includes formula one supremo Ron Walker, advertising guru John Singleton and financial services expert Brian Schwarz) Lowy has, quite simply, blown the old soccer industry apart Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale and is re establishing it on a new, sounder footing.

 

One of his first moves was to shut down the old Soccer Australia and replace it with a new business entity, the Australian Soccer Association. He negotiated with Channel Seven boss Kerry Stokes to end a long term television deal.

 

He then wooed and eventually won Australian sport's hottest administrator, Australian Rugby Union's John O'Neill, to be the new chief executive of the ASA.

Why Michelle Beadle Is Probably Done In Bristol2014-Oct-28

Why Michelle Beadle Is Probably Done In Bristol

 

On Tuesday, we told you that ESPN execs are ready to walk away from Rick Reilly's contract when it expires next year. But what about this year's expiring contracts? Whose time in Bristol might soon be over? We counted at least four ESPN talents plus Colin Cowherd whose deals are up this year. Here's a rundown, with some handicapping based on conversations with Bristol sources.

 

He's been with ESPN for 11 years, and he's the biggest talent on the block. His name is already in the mix for the NBC Sports Network. Chance he's leaving: 30%

 

NBC can offer Van Pelt something awfully attractive: access to his former employer (Comcast's Golf Channel) and presumably plenty of time on the flagship network itself. But then there's one thing they can't offer him: radio. Van Pelt loves radio as much as he does TV work. It's possible NBC would let him do radio separately, but Van Pelt already has his own show with ESPN and that may be a big enticement to stay. Comcast's overtures notwithstanding, it's felt Roddy White Jersey within Bristol he'll wind up staying.

 

In the last Roddy White Authentic Jersey year, the SportsNation co host since 2009 has become the It Girl at the channel. Her Matt Ryan Jersey leverage will never be greater. Chance she's leaving: 80%

 

Beadle is said to have ambitions that extend well beyond SportsNation. When she co hosted Live! with Regis and Kelly last July, it's exactly where she wanted to be: Morning TV, with a much broader audience than what she finds on ESPN2 in the late afternoon. She has flexibility as well: She lives in the city and she's not married. This is the moment for her to cash in. If she does go, who will replace her on SportsNation? ESPN Kremlinologists already have their eyes on frequent guest host Charissa Thompson.

 

Well, his deal isn't technically up, but his contract for SportsNation is up at the end of the year. If Beadle leaves, does ESPN wind up shaking up the show's format?

Zach Sudfeld continues to emerge with Rob Gronkowski 2014-Oct-28

Zach Sudfeld continues to emerge with Rob Darius Butler Kids Jersey Gronkowski absent

 

Chandler Jones: Went 3 0 against left tackle Nate Solder in one on one pass rush drills, and crashed the pocket early in the 11 on 11 session with the first team. His ankle seems to no longer be an issue.

 

Zach Sudfeld: Had a drop of a Tom Brady pass in the first 11 on 11 session, but made the play of the day on a diving one Julio Jones Red Jersey handed reception of a Tom Brady pass in the back of the end zone, with safety Adrian Wilson in tight coverage.

 

Tom Brady: Struggled on Monday night, but www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Matt-Ryan-Jersey.html rebounded with a sharp performance. He went seven for 11 with two touchdowns in 11 on 11 work, and was sacked once, but three of his four incompletions were drops by Sudfeld, running back LeGarrette Blount and wide receiver Danny Amendola.

 

Jake Bequette: After spending his rookie season essentially as a red shirt, the 2012 third round pick has seen most of his action with the second and third team. With www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Roddy-White-Jersey.html defensive ends Chandler Jones, Rob Ninkovich, Justin Francis and Jermaine Cunningham all getting reps ahead of Bequette, it could be a long climb up.

 

Stephon Morris: Cornerback was beat twice in one on one coverage drills, allowing receptions to Josh Boyce and Lavelle Hawkins. Morris came up limping after giving up the catch to Hawkins, and was on the sideline for the remainder of Julio Jones Authentic Jersey practice.

 

Brandon Bolden: The second year back has missed two consecutive Darius Butler Womens Jersey practices for undisclosed reasons, and LeGarrette Blount has received Bolden's reps in his stead. In a battle with four other talented backs, Bolden can ill afford further absences.
