(Bloomberg) -- Italy’s first foray into the sustainable debt market looks set to pull in the biggest-ever orderbook for a sale of green bonds.The nation racked up over 80 billion euros ($97 billion) of bids for its 8.5-billion-euro sale of 2045 securities via banks, more than twice that seen for Germany’s debut last year. European nations are piling into the market to finance a greener recovery from the pandemic.“Investors are still buying like there’s no tomorrow,” said Jens Peter Sorensen, chief analyst at Danske Bank A/S. “The green investor base continue to grow.”The rush of demand allowed the nation to knock a few basis points off the pricing, the latest evidence of a so-called greenium for sustainable assets. Countries and companies issuing such debt, where spending is ringfenced for environmental projects, have often managed to achieve cheaper financing than from conventional bonds.The strong interest comes despite the market’s pullback from a year-long rally in Italy’s bonds, following a global selloff. Investor sentiment toward the nation has improved following the appointment of former European Central Bank President Mario Draghi as Prime Minister this year, and its debt remains among the region’s highest-yielding assets.Europe is at the forefront of debt tied to more sustainable activities. The European Union has sold a series of social bonds tied to a jobs program and is set to become the largest green debt issuer after its recovery fund sales get underway later this year.The Boom in ESG Shows No Signs of Slowing: Green InsightItaly published its framework for green bond issuance last week and said that it would align as much as possible with the EU’s green bond standard, due in the coming months. The proceeds of the bonds will be used to fund projects from renewable electricity to biodiversity, while part of it will go to refinancing previous projects between 2018-2020.Italy lowered the guidance twice on the sale to 12 basis points over its 2041 bonds, from 15 basis points initially. Previously, the 33-billion-euro orderbook for Germany’s sale in September was the largest recorded, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.The country mandated Credit Agricole SA and Intesa Sanpaolo SpA as structuring advisors, and those plus BNP Paribas SA, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and NatWest Markets to joint lead manage the sale.“It comes at a perfect time,” said Althea Spinozzi, a fixed income strategist at Saxo Bank A/S. “By issuing a green bond Italy ensures to have more attention from the market, therefore better bidding metrics compared to a traditional issuance. It’s a win-win.”(Updates with sale and order sizes in second paragraph.)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.
The European Union drug regulator does not see enough evidence yet to recommend changes to the dosage regime for COVID-19 vaccines, despite pressure from EU states after positive data on the level of protection of a single shot. EU nations' vaccination plans are lagging behind the United States and former EU member Britain, a delay that has prompted some countries to push for new approaches, including on the administration of vaccines. For the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, London recommends the booster should be given after 12 weeks, whereas the guidance from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) follows the companies' recommendations of a second dose after three weeks.

(Bloomberg) -- New York has a warning for hedge fund managers: Pay your taxes like everybody else.Officials delivered the message as they announced that Thomas Sandell and his hedge fund, Sandell Asset Management Corp., would pay $105 million to New York, the biggest fine of its kind in the state, after being accused of faking a move to Florida to avoid paying state and city taxes in 2017 on deferred fee revenue of nearly half a billion dollars.Read more: Billionaire fund manager to pay $105 million in tax case“Tax revenues pay for vital city services. When a deadly pandemic has eviscerated the economy and severely strained our city’s budget, every dollar counts,” said New York City Corp. Counsel James Johnson. “Hedge funds are obligated to pay taxes just like everybody else, and when they don’t, we’ll use our legal tools and strategies to hold them accountable. Period.”Several high profile managers have opened offices in Florida in recent months and Elliott Management Corp. moved its headquarters there. The hefty fine suggest that New York state and city will eye any moves to ensure that relocations are real and not just a tax dodge.The Sunshine State, which has no individual income, estate or capital gains taxes, has been trying to lure investment firms from New York and the Northeast for years and the the trend has accelerated during the pandemic.In the settlement, reached under New York’s False Claims Act, neither Sandell nor his company admitted or denied the allegations, according to the statement.

Mikel Arteta has declared himself “really happy” with striker Alexandre Lacazette, with a decision looming over his Arsenal future. Lacazette’s contract is due to expire at the end of next season, meaning the Frenchman will be entering the final 12 months of his deal come the summer transfer window. Lacazette enjoyed an excellent run of form around the turn of the year and though he appears to have lost his place in Arteta’s first-choice XI following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s return to form, the Spaniard says he still has a key role to play after scoring during Sunday’s win over Leicester.
Figure 1 Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Mercedes Target Figure 2 Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Cindy Target VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marimaca Copper Corp. (“Marimaca Copper” or the “Company”)(TSX: MARI) is pleased to announce the results of induced polarization (“IP”) surveys completed at the Mercedes and Cindy Targets (“Mercedes” and “Cindy”) located 3km and 5km to the north of the Company’s flagship Marimaca Copper Project. The surveys have identified extensive high chargeability anomalies, and significant resistivity lows which could represent potential oxide mineralization at each target. Highlights Extensive high chargeability anomalies identified at both Cindy and Mercedes, indicating widespread presence of sulphide mineralizationCoincident with the previously announced magnetic and surface geochemical anomalies at each target Resistivity lows identified may highlight potential for significant oxide mineralization below thin surface cover IP survey results complement the copper geochemical anomalies found at both targets and in combination, will aid drill hole planning for the upcoming exploration campaignResults provide additional information regarding structural controls of mineralization and continue to add to the geological understanding of the Marimaca districtMapping and sampling underway at the Robles Target, located east north east of MarimacaFirst drill rig now onsite and drilling of Marimaca Sulphide Target is in progress. Sergio Rivera, VP Exploration of Marimaca Copper, commented: “As with our flagship Marimaca project, the IP surveys at Mercedes and Cindy highlighted extensive chargeability anomalies, largely coincident with both the magnetic and the broad copper geochemical anomalies previously identified at each target. “Of note are the relatively large, laterally and vertically extensive resistivity lows which occur in the interpreted supergene portion of the systems at Cindy and Mercedes. At Marimaca, the resistivity lows were coincident with the Marimaca Oxide Deposit. Extending this interpretation to Mercedes and Cindy would suggest similar potential for meaningful oxide mineralization. “We are excited by the geological similarities between Marimaca, Cindy and Mercedes – strongly fractured intrusive host rocks; cross cutting dyke swarms and faults; association of magnetite and copper sulphides; similar weathering profiles – and we look forward to drilling them over the coming weeks and months. “We are also conducting mapping and sampling at our new target at Robles and this is shaping up to be another potentially significant oxide target. We hope to delineate drill targets there for testing in the first half of 2021. “Drill rigs are now turning at the Marimaca Sulphide Target and we are also preparing to drill the district targets commencing with Cindy and followed by Mercedes and Robles.” Overview of Induced Polarization Survey and Results Following the success of the IP survey completed over the MOD (refer to release 2 February 2021), the Company completed similar surveys at both the Mercedes and Cindy Targets which are located 3km and 5km to the north of the Company’s flagship Marimaca Copper Project, respectively. As with the previous survey, the objective was to identify potential areas of sulphide mineralization in proximity to the magnetic (refer to release 23 September 2020) and copper geochemical anomalies (refer to releases 9 December 2020 and 17 February 2021) identified through previous exploration work. The IP method was selected because of its deep penetration and high levels of resolution in detecting sulphide mineralization. The surveys were completed by GRS Chile Ltda. and consisted of a single 3.5km east-west line at Mercedes and a second 4.0km east-west line at the Cindy target. Figure 1: Location of IP Line and Resistivity, Chargeability and Mag Inversion Sections for Mercedes Target - https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/4b51e247-f538-4b01-8cf6-92cc9f6409c1 As at Marimaca, the survey highlighted an anomalous resistivity low (darker colours) coincident with the interpreted supergene zone at both Mercedes and Cindy. At Marimaca, these resistivity lows are coincident with the upper, highly fractured, supergene altered, intrusive host rock, containing the supergene oxide copper blanket which makes up the Marimaca Oxide Deposit. The similar resistivity lows at both Mercedes and Cindy appear to be consistent with this interpretation (see Figures 1 and 2). Again, with remarkable similarity to Marimaca, the IP chargeability highs show broad, laterally extensive, blanket like distributions for both targets (see Figures 1 and 2). These anomalies appear to be controlled by the major Naguayán Fault System and have a similar orientation to those at Marimaca.

HOUSTON, March 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ION Geophysical Corporation (NYSE: IO) today announced that the Company has secured more than $20 million in backstop support for its rights offering. This was a critical milestone in the bond restructuring process, as the supporting bondholders had conditioned their participation in the upcoming bond exchange offer on the Company securing this amount of backstop support. The Company will seek to obtain additional backstop support in connection with the rights offering until the maximum amount is secured or the record date (the date on which a person must hold shares to participate) is reached. Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. is serving as the exclusive dealer manager for the rights offering. For additional details regarding the bond exchange offer and rights offering transactions, please refer to the registration statements on Form S-1 and Form S-4 filed with the SEC today. “This milestone was a significant hurdle to closing the bond restructuring transactions,” said Chris Usher, ION’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The deal provides the opportunity to participate in both debt and equity, depending on the party’s preference, with attractive backstop premiums. We are in the final stretch and remain on track to complete the transactions in early April.” About ION Leveraging innovative technologies, ION delivers powerful data-driven decision-making to offshore energy, ports and defense industries, enabling clients to optimize operations and deliver superior returns.
