Belgian owner and operator of gas carriers Exmar has obtained an extension of the USD 30 million bridge loans that were originally set to expire on September 30, 2019.The extension comes on the back of the company’s discussions with Sinosure regarding the approval for the partial release of the debt service reserve account in respect of the USD 200 million loan with Bank of China and Deutsche Bank. The discussions are still ongoing for the partial release of the DSRA before the end of the year “but so far no agreement has been reached”.Additional factors include the company’s ongoing discussions with several financial institutions for a refinancing of an FSRU unit.The financing of the FSRU under a sale and leaseback with CSSC has been signed, but not executed yet pending the security documentation requiring charterer’s signature.“Gunvor has raised some legal arguments that could lead to arbitration, which further delay the signature of security documents and hence the drawdown under the CSSC financing before the end of the month of September as originally planned. An extension of the drawdown period has been obtained until the end of October,” Exmar said.Exmar provided an update on its Tango FLNG unit, saying that it has been receiving feed gas from YPF since September 9, 2019 and has been producing LNG to its full capacity since then. In the first two weeks of operations, the Tango FLNG has transferred 25,000 cubic meters of LNG to a storage vessel chartered by YPF.The company added that the LPG market has significantly improved over the last months with the VLGC market hovering around USD 50,000 a day for the month of September, compared to an average of USD 30,000 per day for the first half of 2019. The midsize market is following a similar trend.
Private clinical laboratories that have joined Gesy said on Tuesday they face many problems after the system was introduced mainly due to technical issues and procedures that in some cases takes four times longer to complete.Head of the Clinical Laboratories Association Charilaos Charilaou told the Cyprus News Agency the technical problems have knock-on effects on their work.He said before joining Gesy private labs had a different way of running clinical tests but now, for the same analyses, it takes four times longer.Charilaou said that there are now many referrals for each Gesy patient while it should be only one for all the analyses they need. “There should a single referral that includes the haematological, biochemical, microbiological and immune tests labs examination. Now there are four different documents,” he said. This means labs have to do four different procedures and registrations and it takes four times longer to complete for less than half of what they used to be paid.He said private sector labs had developed a way of working to offer quick, quality services so both doctors and patients were satisfied.“We are now lost in this process. They have turned us into a ‘hospital situation’ because they have designed the system for hospitals.”He said the whole procedure should be simplified and all referrals replaced by a single one for each patient.Charilaou also expressed concerns over the new software system they are using which, he said, make things more difficult since it is still uncharted territory.He expressed pessimism over positive changes in the revised software programme that will be available as of Friday because nothing changes for private labs.“They have designed it for hospitals where laboratories are scattered. They take each patient’s blood in four bottles to send it to the hematology, microbiology lab, etc,” Charilaou said.He added that the association raised the issue some five months ago.As things stand now, he said, there is no barrier to how many analyses are being ordered while due to this oversubscription clinical laboratories have raised concerns over their fees.“We do not know what to do with the payments, with our costs,” Charilaou said, adding that labs now wonder whether they will be permanently working to this rhythm.The head of the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) Thomas Antoniou said earlier in the week a revised version of the Gesy software programme already in use would be launched.Antoniou said the software operated very well, exceeding expectations but that it would be further improved.Cyprus, he said, may be one of the first countries to introduce a universal IT system for all services.“The software is working, but as with all software improvements will be made based on observations from users,” Antoniou said.He added it will be improved constantly.Antoniou said healthcare providers have been trained to use the software, while more training sessions would follow for all professionals.You May LikeSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.

now together with the acquisition of Internet events, mergers and acquisitions between them continue to shine, investors eyes, whether in their own ecological chain to patch up development, or from the side paving the way for the listing. Now seems to have entered the era of capital oligarchs. An obvious product, even if it can obtain the user’s favor, the last to get more ice breaking development, or to use the involvement of capital, which is the development of the Internet today.
now the field of mergers and acquisitions, from social to business, from friends to the game, from desktop to mobile, many types of participation began to form, rely on this diversified product summary and coverage of a chain, meet everyone’s needs, has catered to more technology giant investment perspective. Therefore, from this point of view, who do more mergers and acquisitions, who is more nervous about the future, the more urgent sense.
so, Ali’s acquisition from unfamiliar street, Ding Ding concessions began to enter the layout of the era of development, Ali’s three platform strategy is also repeated over and over again, their importance to the product chain. The platform, financial data, and seemingly related system actually need to be more complete product of ecological development and retention, unless you want to do Taobao giant, somewhat tell some fantastic tales.
so when you see the merger happened, I feel not too surprised and curious, that future products will be as a whole unit, rather than independent products, actually this kind of view is one-sided. As the title said, now the merger is in fact more in order to give themselves a posterior approach, because the product attributes become more and more complex, expand their performance is getting better, just a platform to expand out of a function can seckill an independent technology products, as WeChat to APP developers fear. This is all the acquisition center, product diversification, stay a few road, in order not to let the opponent strangling the throat.
of course, ideas and practices should not avoid giant pure, make a few more related products is to make full use of incoming traffic, as if under the line, Wanda Plaza, opened such a platform, equipped with dining, entertainment, shopping and other aspects, so do not want to people buy clothes for a movie, let people eat ice cream to play games, this was not because the product attributes across the opening a new mobile phone store or a brand shop beatenfall.
left posterior section can be said to be the development of the smart move, but also from the side to foil the stage of their flagship product is backward, as Taobao, although Taobao mode realize many people dream of gold, but the Taobao model is relatively backward search system and the presentation of how many will be left to their own problems. Sometimes, some online recruiters ask me why our own industry isn’t involved in the acquisition. I would be joking to say that the China talent net was not bought? Is this enough?.
