New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's top advisers had successfully pushed the state's health officials to strip a public report of data that showed more nursing-home residents had died of COVID-19 than acknowledged by the administration, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported on Thursday. The report in July had examined factors leading to the spread of the coronavirus in nursing homes and focused only on residents who died inside long-term care facilities, leaving out those who died in hospitals after becoming sick in nursing homes, the Journal said https://on.wsj.com/3uSGDN0. Hence, that report had said 6,432 nursing-home residents died from the outbreak, which was a significant undercount of the death toll attributed to the state's most vulnerable population, the Journal added, citing sources with knowledge of the report's production.

(Bloomberg) -- A group of unsecured lenders to Hertz Global Holdings Inc. are proposing an alternative reorganization of the rental car company that would take it public, a move that counters a plan to sell the company to two investment funds for as much as $4.2 billion.The lenders want to convert their holdings in the bankrupt company into shares of the reorganized company, which could be traded publicly, the people said. If Hertz’s board were to accept that plan, it would supersede a bid from Knighthead Capital Management and Certares Management to buy the company.The group believes the Knighthead bid, which values Hertz at $4.85 billion, is too low, according to the people. Its members think Hertz has an enterprise value of $5 billion and would fetch more under their plan, one of the people said. The lenders have not submitted a formal proposal to Hertz and terms are still in flux, the people said.In one scenario being discussed, Hertz’s shares would become public upon emergence from bankruptcy, the people said.Members of the creditor group include Alliance Bernstein, Bank of America, Invesco, Fir Tree Partners, and JPMorgan Asset Management, according to court filings. Representatives for the lenders didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Competing PlansHertz’s board is in the early stages of evaluating proposals and will take the best bid, one of the people said. Discussions are preliminary and plans could fall apart in the coming days, the people said. Any plan would need approval in bankruptcy court.The New York Post earlier reported the discussions on the alternative proposal.The company started negotiating with creditors and potential buyers in November, according to court documents. After talking with three bidders, Hertz settled on Knighthead and Certares, who jointly have a travel-focused investment fund.After decades of mismanagement, Hertz filed for bankruptcy in May, unable to weather the blows from the pandemic that peers Enterprise Holdings Inc. and Avis Budget Group Inc. also experienced. One former top executive summed up the car rental company’s plight as a slow-moving train wreck.As Covid-19 vaccinations roll out across the globe and confidence builds that travel will soon start to rebound, shares of Avis have soared more than 670% to $60.06 since bottoming nearly a year ago at less than $8. Hertz’s existing shares, which traded at 66 cents on Thursday, are slated to be wiped out as part of the bankruptcy reorganization.Knighthead and Certares’s position would include a direct investment, a rights offering participation and buying Hertz’s existing unsecured debt. The investors would own at least 51% of the common stock under the proposal, according to court documents. A hearing to approve the terms of the plan is scheduled for April 16.(Updates to add gains in the shares of Hertz rival Avis in 10th paragraph. A previous version of the story was corrected to remove references to an initial public offering and clarified in the third paragraph and second deck headline that no formal proposal has been submitted to Hertz.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- China’s CSI 300 Index pared an earlier loss of as much as 2%, boosted by gains in mainland’s largest stock Kweichow Moutai Co.The liquor maker climbed as much as 2.7%, reversing an earlier decline of 2.2%. Its peer Wuliangye Yibin Co. also rose. The CSI gauge was down 0.4% as of 11:25 a.m. in Shanghai. The rebound could help it avoid entering a correction after it earlier extended losses from a recent Feb. 10 peak to more than 10%.“Today the sentiment is one of buying the dip, with Moutai’s hitting 2000 yuan being a trigger,” said Zhang Fushen, senior analyst at Shanghai PD Fortune Asset Management (LLP). “All of the expensive sectors have fallen significantly and are threatening to destroy their uptrend but without a massive change in fundamentals and expectations, there’s no reason for them to fall further and reverse from bull to bear.”Moutai’s $113 Billion Tumble Is Hammering Chinese Mutual FundsThe recent rout in the Chinese benchmark has been driven by consumer staples, with the subgauge falling about 20% since Feb. 10. Investors, concerned about liquidity tightening and possible asset bubbles, are taking fresh cues from the National People’s Congress that began today.The CSI 300 sank the most since July on Thursday, while a measure of two-week volatility spiked to a seven-month high.‘Overly Pessimistic’China set an economic growth target of above 6% for the year, well below what economists forecast, and outlined ongoing fiscal support with prudent monetary policy. The government will narrow the budget deficit to 3.2% of gross domestic product this year from 3.6% in 2020, Premier Li Keqiang said Friday at the opening of the NPC.The GDP target is “by no means a low figure and earnings in the nation’s top companies are sure to well exceed that,” said Chen Shi, a fund manager at Shanghai Jade Stone Investment Management Co. “Markets globally have become overly pessimistic on liquidity and in reality, they might be scaring themselves too much.”Meanwhile, things were quiet Friday in the currency land, with the onshore yuan little changed at 6.4736 per dollar. The yield on China’s 10-year bonds was steady at 3.27%.(Recast throughout.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
