Nestle to buy back $21 billion in its own stock by 2020 28.6.2017

New York: Nestle says it plans to spend about $21 billion to buy its own stock in the next three years as the food and beverage giant seeks to boost shareholder value.

The Swiss food and beverage giant also said Tuesday that that after a review of its wide-ranging business, it will mostly focus on high-growth areas, such as coffee, pet care, baby food and bottled water.

Nestle says it may adjust its portfolio of brands to fit in with its new strategy. Earlier this month, the company said it may sell its US candy business, which makes the Butterfinger and Crunch bars.

The moves come after news reports this week said that activist shareholder Third Point was pushing Nestle to sell its stake in French cosmetics company L'Oreal.

Tamil Nadu farmers in dilemma over drought situation 28.6.2017
Chennai: The failure of two consecutive monsoons from 2015 is likely to push the price of paddy by at least 20 per cent during the Pongal season next year. The overall production of rice in Delta and other districts has been hit more than 40 per cent. Farmers had been relying on ground water for cultivation, but now they face a situation where the ground water is also drying up. While ground water was extracted at 40 feet earlier, following the drought, one has to go as low as 200ft to 600 ft in the delta region to get water. This is leading to seawater intrusion affecting the crops. Sowing of seeds got delayed due to shortage of water and the November rains flooded the area completely damaging the crops. This caused huge loss to the farmers and paddy is the best crop for cultivation in the region. Arupathy S. Kalyanam, President of the Thanjavur Delta farmers said, "Agro climatic zonal cropping, judicial water management and supporting irrigational needs, are to be addressed to save the plight of ...

CM suggests setting up of SPV for drain-cleaning 28.6.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, June 27 Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today suggested setting up of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to minimise "negative impact" of multiplicity of agencies on cleaning of city's drains. Lack of desilting and cleaning of drains leads to waterlogging and subsequent traffic jams during monsoon. The suggestion comes at a meeting of the Apex Committee to review flood-control measures, chaired by the Chief Minister. "There is multiplicity of agencies in the city as far as cleaning of drains is concerned. We must try for an SPV for better coordination and cleaning. Such an integrated body will help in the long term," he said. Kejriwal also said till such a body is in place, authorities should coordinate efforts to prevent problems including of waterlogging during the monsoon season. "The process of cleaning the drains being used by the Public Works Department and the municipal corporations in most of the cases is very primitive. Garbage from the drains is kept on the side of the road to dry up and ...
