Mubadala Of Abu Dhabi Is In Talks On $1 Bn Stake In Jio Platforms: Sources- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Read Article
Abu Dhabi state fund Mubadala is in talks with Reliance Industries (RELI.NS) about investing around $1 billion in the Indian conglomerate’s Jio platforms, three sources told Reuters.
“Clearly Jio’s platform is attracting a wide range of world-class investors, given its enormous potential to serve one of the world’s largest marketplaces,” Mubadala said in an email, without confirming whether or not talks were taking place.
Due diligence on a potential transaction with Reliance was already underway, one of the sources said.
If it goes ahead, the Jio Platforms investment would be the largest in an Indian firm by Mubadala, which is the second-biggest state investor in Abu Dhabi after Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), managing about $240 billion in assets.
Reliance and Twitter did not respond.
Jio Platforms has so far already agreed to sell a combined stake of just over 17% through five separate deals with Facebook (FB.O), which spent $5.7 billion on 9.99%, the first to announce its investment in April.
While talks may be taking place with multiple parties, deals may not necessarily materialize and any terms may change, a fourth source, who is familiar with Reliance’s strategy, said.
All four sources declined to be identified because the talks are private.
Reliance plans to wrap up a bulk of the private fundraising by the third quarter of 2020 and then explore a potential public listing in the United States in 2021, one of the sources said.
Both Morgan Stanley (MS.N) and Goldman Sachs (GS.N) are in talks with Reliance about a possible Jio Platforms IPO mandate, the source added.
Reliance executives visited the United States in February to meet potential investors and bankers and it was looking for a valuation of $90 billion to $95 billion, the source said.
However, the source familiar with Reliance’s strategy said that an overseas listing could still be a long way off and that the company had no immediate need for funds after the recent investments in Jio Platforms.
Before making any decision Reliance would also need to have clarity on rules governing direct overseas listings for Indian companies, which are still being formulated by the government.
Global tech firms prefer listing in the U.S. as it provides companies with greater liquidity and wider access to capital.
Such a deal would help boost Jio Platform’s credentials and provide an exit for some of the big investors that have agreed to invest in it, including private equity firms KKR (KKR.N), General Atlantic, Silver Lake and Vista Equity Partners.
India’s Mint newspaper reported on Thursday that Microsoft is also in talks to buy 2.5% of Jio Platforms for $2 billion.
Talks between Reliance and Microsoft had been on since the two companies announced a cloud computing tie-up last year, a fifth source told Reuters.
Reliance is looking to sell roughly 20% of Jio Platforms through all the private placement deals, the source added.
Morgan Stanley declined to comment, while Microsoft, Goldman Sachs did not respond to requests for comment.

NBN Co sources $6.1 billion from banks – Finance – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

NBN Co has secured access to a total of $6.1 billion from Australian and international banks, well above the $2 billion it had initially sought.
Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said the credit facilities “demonstrated … strong support in the market for the NBN business plan and outlook.”
He said the additional $4.1 billion – on top of the initial $2 billion NBN Co said it would need back in mid-2018 – had been secured “at very competitive prices” and via “arrangements with a number of Australian and international banks”.
“There is no requirement for NBN Co to draw down on these additional facilities immediately, but the Government agrees with the company that it makes sense to have these facilities in place, to give it flexibility and given current economic conditions,” Cormann said in a statement.
Of the $6.1 billion, NBN Co “is expected to draw down $2 billion”, given those funds were needed to cover increased build costs caused by past delays to the HFC rollout and fixed wireless congestion remediation.
“The additional funding will provide the company opportunities to invest and create even more value for Australians guided by future corporate plans,” Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said.
From the additional $4.1 billion debt facilities, $1.5 billion “will be reserved for working capital to provide the company with added flexibility and to support NBN Co’s long term capital management strategy,” the Government said
Some of that money could be used by NBN Co to “pay down” an existing $19.5 billion loan from the Government “without jeopardising [NBN Co’s] performance”.
“The balance of funds is available for strategic investments with a positive return beyond the initial rollout phase and repayment of the Commonwealth loan, subject to shareholder approval.”

Hackers linked to Iran target WHO staff emails during coronavirus – sources – Benchmarking Change- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Hackers working in the interests of the Iranian government have attempted to break into the personal email accounts of staff at the World Health Organization during the coronavirus outbreak, four people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
It is not clear if any accounts were compromised, but the attacks show how the WHO and other organizations at the center of a global effort to contain the coronavirus have come under a sustained digital bombardment by hackers seeking information about the outbreak.
Reuters reported in March that hacking attempts against the United Nations health agency and its partners had more than doubled since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, which has now killed more than 40,000 worldwide.
The latest effort has been ongoing since March 2 and attempted to steal passwords from WHO staff by sending malicious messages designed to mimic Google web services to their personal email accounts, a common hacking technique known as “phishing,” according to four people briefed on the attacks. Reuters confirmed their findings by reviewing a string of malicious websites and other forensic data.
“We’ve seen some targeting by what looks like Iranian government-backed attackers targeting international health organizations generally via phishing,” said one of the sources, who works for a large technology company that monitors internet traffic for malicious cyber activity.
WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic confirmed that personal email accounts of WHO staff were being targeted by phishing attacks, but said the WHO did not know who was responsible. “To the best of our knowledge, none of these hacking attempts were successful,” he said.
Iran’s government denied any involvement. “These are all sheer lies to put more pressure on Iran,” said a spokesman at Iran’s information technology ministry. “Iran has been a victim of hacking.”
Karim Hijazi, chief executive of cyber intelligence firm Prevailion, shared his recently captured data with Reuters that shows a sophisticated hacking group was actively targeting the global health organization. Reuters couldn’t independently confirm his analysis. Hijazi said the identity of the hackers was difficult to determine, although their techniques appeared advanced.
The intrusion attempts are distinct from others reported by Reuters last week, which sources said were thought to be the work of an advanced group of hackers known as DarkHotel that has previously been active in East Asia – an area that has been particularly affected by the coronavirus.
The motives of the hackers was not clear, but targeting officials at their personal accounts is a longstanding intelligence-gathering technique.
Other details in this phishing attempt point to links with Tehran. For example, Reuters found that the same malicious websites used in the WHO break-in attempts were deployed around the same time to target American academics with ties to Iran.
The related activity – which saw the hackers impersonate a well-known researcher – parallels cases Reuters previously documented where alleged Iranian hackers masqueraded as media figures from organizations such as CNN or The New York Times to trick their targets.
Iran has suffered enormous loss of life from the coronavirus, and infections have reached the inner circle of the country’s leadership.
A person close to U.S intelligence said he was aware of the Iranian campaign and that such attacks are standard fare during times of international crisis.
While large prizes for intelligence agencies would include coronavirus response plans for various countries or word of effective treatments, more benign data, such as WHO estimates for infection rates, would also be valuable, the person said.

US prepares crackdown on Huawei’s global chip supply – sources – Hardware – Security- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Senior cabinet officials in the Trump administration agreed to new measures to restrict the global supply of chips to China’s Huawei Technologies, sources familiar with the matter said, as the White House ramps up criticism of China over coronavirus.
The move comes as ties between Washington and Beijing grow more strained, with both sides trading barbs over who is to blame for the spread of the coronavirus and an escalating tit-for-tat over the expulsion of journalists from both countries. Under the change, foreign companies that use US chipmaking equipment would be required to obtain a US license before supplying certain chips to Huawei. The Chinese telecoms company was blacklisted last year, limiting the company’s suppliers.
One of the sources said the rule-change is aimed at restricting the sale of sophisticated chips to Huawei and not older, more commoditized and widely-available semiconductors.
It is unclear if President Donald Trump, who appeared to push back against the proposal last month, will sign off on the rule change.
Most chip manufacturers rely on equipment produced by US companies like KLA Corp, Lam Research and Applied Materials, according to a report last year from China’s Everbright Securities.
The equipment makers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The decision came when US officials from various agencies met and agreed on Wednesday to alter the Foreign Direct Product Rule, which subjects some foreign-made goods based on US technology or software to US regulations, the sources said.
Attendees likely included top officials from the Tempemail Security Council, and the US Departments of State, Defense, Energy and Commerce. None of them responded to requests for comment.
If approved by Trump, the measure may strike a blow to the world’s No. 2 smartphone maker, and to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, a major producer of chips for Huawei’s HiSilicon unit, as well as the world’s largest contract maker.
Huawei had no immediate comment, and TSMC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“It’s impossible to tell the impact until we know the technical thresholds that may apply,” said Washington lawyer Kevin Wolf, a former Commerce Department official.
“Different foundries make different chips at different capabilities so you wouldn’t know which foundries are affected the most until you know the technical thresholds,” Wolf said.
US-China tensions
The move could also anger Beijing, which has spoken out against a global campaign by the United States to compel allies to exclude Huawei from their 5G networks over spying concerns. Huawei has denied the allegations.
The United States placed Huawei on a blacklist in May last year, citing national security concerns. The entity listing, as it is known, allowed the US government to restrict sales of US-made goods to the company, and some more limited items made abroad that contain US technology.
But under current regulations, key foreign supply chains remain beyond the reach of US authorities, fueling frustration among China hawks in the administration and prompting a push to toughen up export rules for the company, Reuters reported in November.
The hawks’ efforts appeared in jeopardy last month when Trump reacted strongly against the proposed crackdown, after Reuters and the Wall Street Journal reported that a move to block global chip sales to Huawei was under consideration.
“I want our companies to be allowed to do business. I mean, things are put on my desk that have nothing to do with national security, including with chipmakers and various others. So we’re going to give it up, and what will happen? They’ll make those chips in a different country or they’ll make them in China or someplace else,” Trump said.

China’s Baidu to raise salaries amid virus outbreak – sources – Networking – Software- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

China’s Baidu Inc will raise staff salaries amid the coronavirus outbreak, the search engine company’s CEO told staff in a meeting, two sources familiar with the matter said.
Robin Li also told staff that the company had a cash pile of around 130 billion yuan (US$18.5 billion), the sources said. In its fourth quarter earnings report, Baidu said it had a cash position of 135.9 billion yuan.
Baidu did not respond to a request for immediate comment.
The company said last month that its first-quarter revenue could fall as much as 13 percent  from a year earlier citing a hit to its advertising sales due to the outbreak and China’s slowing economy.
Li’s comments come as government efforts to curb the spread of the virus have disrupted supply chains and severely hit consumer demand, causing mounting stress for many Chinese companies, some of which have started to lay off workers, cut salaries or shut down completely.

Tencent-backed WeDoctor invites banks to lead US$1 billion Hong Kong IPO, sources say – Benchmarking Change- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

WeDoctor will push ahead with a Hong Kong listing and invite pitches from investments banks next week to lead an IPO valuing the Chinese healthcare platform at up to US$10 billion, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said.
The Hangzhou-based company, which is backed by Tencent Holdings Ltd and Goldman Sachs, could look to raise up to US$1 billion in the IPO, and could be among the first major Hong Kong listings since the coronavirus outbreak began.
WeDoctor has invited investment banks in Hong Kong and mainland China to a ‘beauty parade’, which will be held via video conferencing and in person at the company’s offices for bankers located in China, three sources said.
The company’s new chief financial officer John Cai, who is set to join from WeDoctor shareholder and strategic partner AIA where he was chief executive, will take part in the discussions from Hong Kong with bankers in the city.
Founded in 2010 by artificial intelligence expert Jerry Liao, WeDoctor has more than 210 million registered users mainly in China for its online appointment booking, prescription and diagnosis services. It is also linked to about 3,200 hospitals and 360,000 doctors.
The planned float, which will likely take place in the second half of the year, will include its core business – online healthcare services, one source said. It is considering whether to exclude some units such as cloud-services from the IPO.
WeDoctor declined to comment on its IPO plans.
The deal would be a sign that Hong Kong’s equity capital markets, which have been battered by a coronavirus-led slowdown, are set to regain some confidence in the second quarter of 2020.
WeDoctor raised US$500 million in a private funding round in May 2018 which valued the company at US$5.5 billion at the time.
It is among a spate of technology-driven firms looking to shake up China’s overburdened public healthcare market, with increasingly affluent consumers willing to pay for ways to get more convenient access to doctors and health services.
Its move also comes two years after rival Ping An Good Doctor, formally known as Ping An Healthcare and Technology Co Ltd, raised US$1.1 billion in an IPO, but saw its shares later tumble as investors worried about its high valuation.

US still eyeing ways to curb sales to Huawei after Trump’s chipmaker comments – sources – Hardware – Security – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

US government officials are still considering ways to further curb sales to China’s Huawei Technologies , despite President Donald Trump’s tweets and comments last week in support of sales to China, according to people familiar with the matter.
An interagency meeting was held on Thursday to discuss national security and China export issues, including proposals to restrict sales of chips to Huawei, the world’s second-largest smartphone maker, and a plan to block the sale of jet engines for China’s new passenger airplane.
While blocking General Electric Co from supplying jet engines appeared to be off the table after Trump opposed efforts to stop their sale, sources told Reuters on Monday new restrictions aimed at cutting Huawei off further from its suppliers were still under discussion.
Trump told reporters last week he wanted US companies “to be allowed to do business.”
“I mean, things are put on my desk that have nothing to do with national security, including with chipmakers and various others,” he said.
He said he had been “very tough” on Huawei, but did not provide further details, and added that national security concerns should not be used as an excuse to make it difficult for foreign countries to buy US products.
His comments contrasted with the sharp restrictions his administration has placed on US companies trading with Huawei over national security concerns and foreign policy interests.
The United States alleges the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment to spy, an accusation Huawei has rejected.
Divisions
Policymakers have been sharply divided over Huawei and China ahead of a possible cabinet-level meeting, which had been scheduled for Feb. 28 but has now been pushed to a later date. Some officials have favored a tougher line while others are more focused on trading with the world’s second largest economy.
Officials from various government agencies are trying to come to a consensus ahead of the cabinet meeting, one person familiar with the matter said.
In their meeting on Thursday, officials discussed possible changes to what is known as the de minimis rule, which dictates how much US content can be in a foreign-made product before the United States has authority to regulate its sale, the sources said.
Under current regulations, the United States can require a license or block the export of many high-tech products shipped to China from other countries if US-made components make up more than 25 percent of the value.
But the US Department of Commerce drafted a rule that would lower the threshold only on exports to Huawei to 10 percent and expand the purview to include non-technical goods like consumer electronics including non-sensitive chips.
Officials discussed lowering that threshold at Thursday’s meeting, a second source said.
The government agencies also have been considering changing the Foreign Direct Product Rule, which subjects foreign-made goods based on US technology or software to US oversight.
One proposed change would force foreign companies that use US chipmaking equipment to seek licenses before supplying Huawei.
Huawei was placed on a US trade blacklist last May that allows the United States to restrict the export of American-made goods to companies believed to be involved in activities contrary to the US national security or foreign policy interests.
But many foreign supply chains remained beyond the reach of US authorities, frustrating China hawks and spurring the proposals to expand controls.
Reuters exclusively reported in November that the United States was considering altering the two rules to expand its power to restrict the foreign shipment of products with US technology to Huawei.

Samsung wins 5-nanometer modem chip contract from Qualcomm – sources – Finance – Hardware- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s semiconductor manufacturing division has won a contract to make new Qualcomm Inc 5G chips using its most advanced chip-making technology, two sources familiar with the matter said, boosting the Korean firm’s efforts to gain market share against rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.
Samsung will fabricate at least some of Qualcomm’s X60 modem chips, which will connect devices such as smart phones to 5G wireless data networks. The X60 will be made on Samsung’s 5-nanometer process, the sources said, which makes the chips smaller and more power-efficient than previous generations.
One of the sources said TSMC is also expected to fabricate 5-nanometer modems for Qualcomm. Samsung and Qualcomm declined to comment, and TSMC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Best known among consumers for its phones and other electronic devices, Samsung is the world’s second-biggest chip manufacturer through its foundry division, self-supplying many of its own mobile phone parts and also fabricating chips for outside customers such as International Business Machines Corp and Nvidia Corp, among others.
But much of Samsung’s semiconductor revenue historically has come from memory chips, whose prices can swing wildly as supply and demand fluctuate. In an attempt to cut its reliance on that volatile market, Samsung announced a plan last year to invest $US116 billion in non-memory chips through 2030.
The Qualcomm deal shows progress in winning customers to that effort. Even if Samsung has won only part of the orders, Qualcomm represents a flagship customer for Samsung’s 5-nanometer manufacturing technology. Samsung plans to ramp up that technology this year in an attempt to regain market share against TSMC, which is also starting mass production of 5-nanonmeter chips this year.
The Qualcomm win could boost Samsung’s foundry business because the X60 modem is likely to be used in many mobile devices as they shift to 5G. In the fourth quarter of 2019, Samsung had 17.8% market share versus TSMC’s 52.7 percent, according to data from TrendForce.
In a separate announcement, Qualcomm said on Tuesday it would begin sending samples of the X60 chips to customers in the first quarter of this year. Qualcomm did not disclose who would manufacture the chips, and Reuters could not learn whether the first batches of chips would be made by Samsung or TSMC.
The Taiwanese company was faster to ramp up high-volume production of chips using the previous 7-nanometer manufacturing process, winning customers such as Apple Inc.
Last month, TSMC executives said they expect to begin ramping up 5-nanometer production in the first half of the year and expect it to make up 10% of the company’s revenue for 2020.
Asked during a January investor conference call how Samsung will compete with TSMC, Shawn Han, senior vice president at Samsung Foundry, said the company planned to expand 5-nanometer mass production by “diversifying customer applications” this year.
Qualcomm designs its own chips but works with outside companies to manufacture them. It has used manufacturing services from both Samsung and TSMC in the past, as well as from China’s Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp, depending on which foundry’s technology and pricing met its needs for the product at hand.

The 5 Best Online Sources To Buy Used Textbooks – Blog – 10 minute

Student debt is a common topic in conversations about higher education, but how much of that debt stems from loans—and how much of it stems from textbooks? Universities don’t have a standardized system for dealing with textbooks.
Some professors write their own and require students to purchase the books, while others use high-priced entries from publishers like McGraw and Pearson. A student taking just four classes a semester might spend $600 or more on textbooks, sometimes for just a single book.

The saving grace of budget-bound college students is the used market. In any college town you will find a used bookstore that specializes in textbooks. Unfortunately, the quantity is often limited. The best option to buy used textbooks is to look online. 
Numerous websites and services provide good-condition or better textbooks for college students. The websites on this list are some of the best. 

Chegg is one of the go-to outlets for college students to buy used textbooks because it doesn’t just sell textbooks, but also rents them. If your class requires a brand-new textbook that just released, you might not be able to find a used copy anywhere. On the other hand, renting it means you aren’t shelling out a ridiculous amount of cash. 
Chegg allows you to return books for free with a prepaid shipping label and even provides a 21-day risk-free period. If you decide the class isn’t for you, you can drop it and return the book without any financial risk. 
Chegg saves students up to 90% off textbooks, has a huge question and answer database for those pesky questions, and even offers e-textbooks for many titles. It’s hands-down the best all-around option for college students looking to save money on their textbooks. 
[Amazon.png]

Amazon is the world’s leading online marketplace, so why not look there to buy used textbooks? The truth is, Amazon makes it easy for anyone to sell goods on their platform. College students will find creative ways to make money, so flipping a textbook they no longer need is the perfect solution. 
Just hop on Amazon and look for the textbook you need and there’s a good chance you can find it, even for those more obscure courses and subjects. The only exception are professor-specific textbooks—those might be easier to find from other students on your campus. 
You should know that Amazon also offers Amazon Prime (free two-day shipping, free ebooks each month, and Prime Video) to college students through the Amazon Student deal. It’s a great way to save money on shipping and textbooks—plus, you get a free Netflix alternative. 

CampusBooks lets users buy, rent, and sell textbooks, but its true strength is in its search aggregator. The service looks at various retailers all across the web to help students find the best possible price on a textbook, including Amazon, Chegg, and many others. 
If you want to search almost all of the retailers at once without taking the time to do it yourself, Campus Books is the way to go. And thankfully, textbooks aren’t airline prices—you don’t have to use weird tricks to keep the price from going up.

With a name like Textbooks.com, it comes as no surprise that the website commands a huge amount of traffic. On the other hand, the traffic is well-earned. Textbooks.com is one of the easiest-to-use retailers for used textbooks anywhere on the web. 
The site has few frills. From the homepage, users are greeted with a large search bar and three main navigation options: Buy Textbooks, Sell Textbooks, and eTextbooks. The site advertises prices up to 90% off and provides free shipping on orders over $25. 
Textbooks.com claims to have more than 10 million textbooks in stock. The site also provides other services, such as an expert answering service you can use to clarify even the most confusing subjects 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. 
There is also an online writing center available at all times of day with essential services like a plagiarism checker, grammar tool, and citation generator. 

Like many of its competitors, eCampus lets you buy used textbooks for up to 90% off their face value. Shipping is free over $35, and the site allows users to buy, sell, and rent textbooks. Customers can save $5 off their order by texting the word books to 87955. 
Where eCampus sets itself apart is via the eWards program. It’s a rewards program that lets users save even more money by spending points. These points can be earned by performing simple tasks like signing up, following eCampus on Twitter, connecting your Facebook account, and much more. You also earn points when you purchase a textbook or rent one. Ironically enough, renting a textbook yields more points per dollar. 
eCampus also provides customers with a “Textbook Guarantee.” The textbooks can be returned for any reason within 25 days of purchase and rentals can be extended at any time. eCampus also provides access to the electronic version of your textbooks. 
eCampus doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as its competition, but if you aren’t likely to use the online help services provided by Chegg and Textbooks.com, you can use the rewards program to save a few extra dollars.

Organisers poised to call off Mobile World Congress – sources – Security – Telco/ISP- Tempemail – Blog – 10 minute

Organisers of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) will decide on Wednesday whether to cancel the event, two sources said, after several major European telecom companies pulled out due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Deutsche Telekom, Orange and BT ditched the event, along with Finnish network equipment maker Nokia, according to sources and official statements, leaving the Barcelona event without some of its main backers.
The GSMA industry association that organises the conference was due to hold a ‘virtual’ meeting of its board, consisting of 25 industry bosses, at 1300 GMT to discuss its options, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.
“They have to cancel,” said a source with one exhibitor that has decided to pull out.
The telecom industry’s biggest get together, scheduled for Feb. 24-27, typically draws more than 100,000 visitors to Barcelona. By the GSMA’s own estimate it gives a lift of around half a billion dollars to the local economy.
The GSMA has been silent since saying last Sunday it planned to go ahead with the event, while tightening health precautions to guard against the coronavirus that has killed more than 1,000 people in China since breaking out last month.
A source close to the organisation said it was preparing a statement.
Barcelona’s city authorities and the Spanish government have repeatedly stated that it would be safe for travellers to attend. The coronavirus has caused fatalities in around 2% of reported cases from pneumonia or multiple organ failure.
That failed, however, to alleviate concerns among other exhibitors that the precautions would be insufficient to halt the virus that has spread beyond China’s borders to two dozen countries.
In a statement, Nokia said it believed it was a “prudent decision” to cancel its participation.
“Nokia plans to go directly to customers with a series of “Nokia Live” events aimed at showcasing the industry-leading demos and launches scheduled for MWC,” the Finnish company said in a statement, setting out its alternative plans.
Mobile China Congress?
Major Chinese exhibitors, led by Huawei, had vowed to attend, ordering at-risk staff to isolate themselves and drafting in replacements from elsewhere to staff event stands and network with clients.
The GSMA had banned attendees from China’s Hubei province, where the coronavirus outbreak began, and required others to prove that they had been outside the country for at least two weeks prior to the event.
Coronavirus has proved to be contagious even when people who have caught it are asymptomatic, meaning that people attending the MWC might not even realise that they could infect others they meet there.
