     * Brokers: The depreciation of EL, amid the drop in the market, as well as due to deal with the FP
     * Adrian Simionescu: "Investors feel the price at which EL has acquired from the Proprietatea Fund its stakes is very high and unjustified"
     * The FP-Electrica deal, among the topics of the PNL vote of no-confidence against Energy minister Toma Petcu
       It seems the stock market did not take kindly to the approval of the transaction by which "Electrica" acquires the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund in its branches, at least for now, because EL stock dropped abruptly, immediately after the general shareholder meeting of October 26th.
     Electrica shares yesterday reached 12.34 lei/share, down 4.78% over October 26th and 4.34% below the beginning of October. Also, the BET-NG index of the energy stocks fell 0.83%, from the beginning of last month, while the main BET index fell 1.45%.
     Brokerii blame the depreciation of EL on the overall market drop, as well as on the deal with FP.
     Adrian Simionescu, CEO Vienna Investment Trust, told us: "The depreciation of EL shares is part of the recent overall market trend. This trend came on one hand due to overall profit-taking, and on the other hand because of the fiscal instability which the Government has promoted and which has induced some worries among investors about the results which might be seen next year, in terms of the stability of companies in the portfolio.
     On the other hand, the price at which EL has acquired from The Proprietatea Fund (FP) its stakes is considered by investors very high and unjustified. For that reason, many people have decided to sell shares in the company. From a strategic point of view, it is beneficial for the company that it has acquired those stakes, even though they are minority ones, but the price they have paid is too high compared to what they were worth, which means investors punished it".
     In the opinion of Marcel Murgoci, director of operations at Estinvest, the main reason for last week's depreciation of the price of EL is connected to the overall market drop, which also caught the electricity company in it: "That element is more important than the fact that the company has decided to buy from the Proprietatea Fund the holdings in its subsidiaries, because the decision is still in effect and yet, today (ed. note: yesterday), the EL stock rose.
     It is clear that a large amount of money will exit the company and investors were probably unhappy, because that could have gone towards dividends, meaning that some of them sold their shares, especially since there were recently elections for the Board of the Company as well. Still, that effect is less important than the generalized drop of the market as a whole".
     On October 26th, the shareholders of Electrica approved the acquisition of the entire stake that FP held in the share capital of the branches of EL, for 752,031,841 lei.
     The deal will not affect the right to dividends of the Proprietatea Fund for the financial year 2016, as it has already been approved at the level of each branch. The total dividends amount to 97,968,159 lei.
     As the price paid is bigger than what Electrica was willing to pay in the previous years, some energy market specialists claimed that the price that was paid now to FP was too high.
     In spite of this, the CEO of the company, Cătălin Stancu, as well as the Minister of Energy said that the deal that was approved and completed, on November 1st, is the best one possible for the company.
     Cătălin Stancu was asked about the reasons for this deal, last week in the Parliament, in the Investigation Commission for the activity of the ANRE.
     He explained that the dividends owed to the Proprietatea Fund are not included in the transaction: "They are rights earned and granted to the shareholders, including to the state, seven months ago, before any decision concerning the transaction was made.
     With or without the transaction, all the shareholders, including the Fund, will collect their dividends. The answer is that dividends, technically are not included in the price".
     Cătălin Stancu explained that the transaction for the minority stakes was an obligation assumed upon the listing of the company: "At the date of the IPO, there were some obligations to use the capital, which the company had assumed. What is more important is that this a decision of economic opportunity. When you have cash, like Electrica does, and there have been criticisms lately over the good use of that capital, you need to try and use it to produce the highest return. Based on the analyses made with four consultants, the use in the deal with the Proprietatea Fund would give the best return possible given the risk and opportunity conditions we currently have available.
     The capital use is not limited only to the transaction with the Fund because at the present time, we are financing all the distribution branches with approximately 150 million Euros for the investment programs".
     BURSA recently reported that Electrica was now willing to offer 60 million lei more for the stakes of the Proprietatea Fund in Electrica, compared to the amount it was willing to pay one year ago.
     In March 2016, the firm offer of Electrica SA was 790 million lei, while the Proprietatea Fund wanted 875 million lei. According to the talks at the time, Electrica was not willing to grant the Proprietatea Fund the right to receive dividends as well.
     Mr. Stancu said that he was not familiar with the details of the negotiations that had been held until last year, because he had only been with Electrica for a year: "With all due respect, I think that this is a comparison that deserves attention. We are comparing a transaction that failed with one that succeeded. Therefore, they can't be compared. This is a complicated negotiation and I don't think anybody would be willing to say that a certain price is the perfect outcome of a negotiation. It is clear that a better result is always possible. At the present time, the maximum profitability came from this transaction and the shareholders' decision was unanimous, with 75% of 75% present. As a result, the shareholders, of which many were investment funds or banks, confirm that such an investment was also the appropriate option for them".
     The head of Electrica was asked why he didn't go for the option of a share capital increase at the subsidiaries, to see whether the Proprietatea Fund would come in with money to keep its stakes.
     He said that in doing so he ran the risk of a lawsuit from the minority shareholder: "Any loan we extend to our subsidiaries can be converted into a contribution to the share capital. What matters is for the funding to get done. The loan or the contribution to the capital do not differ much in terms of profitability. And to give you a direct answer, there are legal impediments when you start a share capital increase, when you have a minority shareholder, who may not agree to such an operation. Fundamentally, you are asking them to come up with cash to keep their stakes, but there is also the risk that they are going to challenge the operation in court. That risk would have affected the funding of the investments, which is Electrica's main goal at the present time".
     The FP-Electrica deal is one of the subjects of the motion of censure by the PNL against Energy minister Toma Petcu.
     PNL members said: "The acquisition by Electrica of the 22% block of shares owned by the Proprietatea Fund in its four branches represents a rushed decision which removes the 163 million Euros from the budget of the company, which affects the investments in the system that are so sorely needed.
     Through the Ministry of Energy, the Romanian government holds 48.78% of Electrica.

     The reunion scheduled today between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un is taking place in Singapore due to the relative neutrality and the security this city-state provides. Singapore is one of the few countries that still hosts a North-Korean embassy, and many of the deals of the Kim regime were conducted here, according to the foreign press.  click here to read the entire article

     "It is a good thing that the public doesn't understand the functioning of our banking and monetary system, because otherwise I think there would be a revolution in the streets by dawn".
     HENRY FORD, founder of the American automotive industry

     Fed up with subsidizing the commercial banks with their own money, the Swiss, mobilized through the "Sovereign Money" initiative, have proposed the organization of a Referendum which will be held on Sunday, June 10th 2018 - is a historical referendum, revolutionary for the banking industry, of international resonance -, by which the initiators want to amend the Constitution, which would impose to the commercial banks to grant loans only within the limits of the bank's money, forbidding them to issue scrip money and ensuring the monopoly of the Confederation (of the Swiss state) on issuance of money free of debt.  click here to read the entire article

GABRIELA MIHAELA VOICILĂ, THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT MINISTER:
     Where there are many entrepreneurs there is creation, where there are many women entrepreneurs there is divine creation, says Gabriela Mihaela Voicilă, state secretary in the Ministry for the Business Environment, Trade and Entrepreneurship (MMACA). In her opinion, entrepreneurship means joy, a better situation, but less time for the family: "Taken together, entrepreneurship means achievements (...)

IN THE ROMANIAN BANANA REPUBLIC...
     The urge "Mircea, act like you're working!", back in the days of the so-called revolution of December 1989, was brought back recently by a new "director".
     We are talking of course, about the meeting between NBR governor Mugur Isărescu, and a government "delegation" led by chamber of deputies chairman Liviu Dragnea, together with PM Viorica Dăncilă.
     Sources from within the PSD, quoted by ziare.com, have claimed that, "in the meeting with the NBR governor, Liviu Dragnea seemed to be looking for a way out, and he seems confused, as he didn't expect his decisions to lead to such effects in the economy".  click here to read the entire article

     Liviu Dragnea's insistence in moving the Romanian embassy from Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem, feeds an older, widespread confusion. Much older. Politically, Jerusalem has been divided from the first presence of the Judeans on the lands of the Palestinians, since back in the days of Abraham and Abimelec. "The indivisible Jerusalem" wanted by Benjamin Netanyahu is a spiritual creation.
     Definitely, pilgrims and locals claim that Jerusalem has a geography, meaning that the city would be compatible with the cardinal points and that is why Palestinians, Israelis and people overall, including those of the UN, EU and the US, speak about Eastern Jerusalem and Western Jerusalem, without anybody being surprised that that is happening at the center of the world, where the god of the Judeans began his creation, starting from the very rock from which later Archangel Gabriel raised Mohammed to visit Heaven, the same place of origin where one of the seven angels "and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." (Apocalypse, 21: 10), where God is one of the same.  click here to read the entire article

     The dystopia of 2169 seems to be 151 years away from us, if we were to watch the American sci-fi movie "In Time", in which New Zealand screenwriter, director and producer New Zealand Andrew M. Niccol has imagined a world in which money has been replaced by the lifespan left and each individual over 25 years old (when they stop aging), are wearing a counter on their arm, displaying how much they have left to live; the economic system relies on transactions paid in lifespan - banks, loans, interest rates - the rich are storing billions of years, while the poor only have hours, minutes or seconds left and when their time is up they die suddenly, as if struck by a mace.  click here to read the entire article
