Ahli United Bank pumps EGP 350 million (US$45.8 million) in a loan arranged for one of Egyptian Steel Group’s companies, a banking source near from the talks told Amwal Al Ghad on Monday. The loan is being arranged in favour of the Egyptian Steel’s National Port Said Steel (NPSS). Owned by steel tycoon Ahmed Abou Hashima, the Egyptian Steel Group has three well-established companies, Industrial Investment Company (IIC) for Steel Plants Management, National Port Said Steel (NPSS) and Egyptian Steel for Building Materials Trading. NPSS's EGP 1.7 billion loan is designed to fund part of the investment cost to establish the company’s new steel plant in Ain Al Sokhna, with investments exceeding EGP 1.2 billion. A consortium of 5 banks encompassing Commercial International Bank (CIB), AlexBank, Bank Audi-Egypt, Emirates NBD, and Ahli United signed a preliminary agreement on the terms and conditions of the NPSS’ loan. Meanwhile, a senior source from the Egyptian Gulf Bank (EGB) told Amwal Al Ghad that his bank would contribute EGP 120 million to the NPSS’ loan and would send its final approval to CIB. The loan has a term of 8 years, including a package of working capital facilities worth more than EGP 400 million. NPSS has also been granted the license to build its second plant in Ain Al Sokhna Plant. At a total surface area of 300.000 m2, the plant uses the top-notch Italian Danieli technology by rolling the billets to rebars through endless rolling. This technology is distinguished for saving time and energy in reheating billets, making it among the first plants in the world to apply this technology. The plant is set to create direct labour of 700 engineers, technicians, workers, and employees. It will be with production capacity of 500.000 tonnes annually (250.000 tonnes/yr steel rebars and 250.000 tonnes/yr steel billets). More»

The European Union Commission wants Greece to stay in the eurozone and is not reviewing a 'Plan B' on the country's exit from the monetary union, EU Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said Monday in a TV interview. "I banned even reviewing such a plan, there is no plan B. Generally when there is a Plan B, it means we don't believe in the Plan A anymore," Mr. Moscovici said, in an interview with French TV station France 2. Mr. Moscovici made those comments two days after the Greek government struck a deal with its partners on a four-month extension of its bailout program that was due to run out on Feb. 28 after weeks of tense negotiations. Under the agreement, Greece has to present Monday a list of budget cuts and economic overhauls, which has to pass the scrutiny of the supervisors of the bailout, the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Mr. Moscovici said the Greek government must fulfill commitments made by the prior administration and make proposals that are financially sustainable. More»

HSBC has confirmed that its chief executive Stuart Gulliver uses a Swiss bank account to hold his bonuses. The bank was responding to a report in the Guardian that Mr Gulliver has £5m in the account which he controls using a Panamanian company. The bank pointed out that Mr Gulliver lives in Hong Kong and pays taxes there and has also paid any taxes required in the UK. The statement did not mention the Panamanian company. The details about Mr Gulliver's tax arrangements have emerged on the same day that HSBC publishes its annual results. The Guardian article does not suggest any wrongdoing on Mr Gulliver's behalf, but it will add to the questions over HSBC's activities in the tax advisory business. Allegations emerged earlier this month that HSBC had helped people evade UK tax using hidden HSBC accounts in Geneva. The Financial Conduct Authority, HMRC, Swiss prosecutors and MPs on the Treasury Committee are looking into the allegations. Last weekend the bank published an apology - signed by Stuart Gulliver - to its customers and staff adding that it had completely overhauled how it conducted its business since 2008. Legal threat The former director of public prosecutions, Lord Ken Macdonald, has said HSBC has left itself open to criminal charges in the UK over the tax-dodging scandal. The QC said there were strong grounds to investigate the bank for "cheating" HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). He added that HMRC's decision not to prosecute was "seriously flawed". In a legal opinion prepared for consumer group SumOfUs, Lord Macdonald said: "It seems clear, from the evidence we have seen, that there exists credible evidence that HSBC Swiss and/or its employees have engaged over many years in systematic and profitable collusion in serious criminal activity against the exchequers of a number of countries. "The corporate and wholesale nature of HSBC Swiss's apparent involvement in what amounts to grave cross border crime makes it all the more obvious that the relevant evidence, once it came the attention of HMRC, should have been the subject of urgent and sustained criminal investigation." Despite the evidence being in the hands of HMRC for nearly five years, no action has so far been taken against the bank. Bonuses Along with its results HSBC will also be publishing the amount of bonuses to be paid to senior staff. Mr Gulliver is under pressure from some MPs and some shareholders to refuse his bonus, which could reach £1.3m. More»
