PepsiCo Inc’s bottler Varun Beverages on Wednesday announced that its Initial Public Offering (IPO) valued at Rs 1,000 crore will open on October 26 and close on October 28. The price band has been set at Rs 440-445 per share.Proceeds from the IPO will be used to repay part of the Rs 1,700 crore debt, which was taken to boost its expansion plans over the last few years. Delhi-based businessman Ravi Jaipuria and his son Varun Jaipuria, who own the flagship firm, will each sell five million shares in the public offering, while the company will sell 15 million new shares.Kotak Mahindra Capital Co Ltd, Axis Capital Ltd, CLSA India Pvt. Ltd. and YES Securities (India) have been hired to manage the IPO.Varun Beverages accounts for about 45 percent of PepsiCo’s volumes in India. The firm is the only bottler and distributor of PepsiCo in the North and East India, with the exception of Jammu and Kashmir, Odisha, Bihar and Jharkhand regions, Jaipuria told the media.Last month, Varun Beverages Ltd won the stock market regulator’s approval for its Rs 1,000 crore worth Initial Public Offering. The company secured clearance from the Securities Exchange Board of India (Sebi) on August 31.In October last year, the company had raised Rs 600 crore from Aion Investments, a Singapore-based company. The company had then said it would utilise the funds for expanding its business and “refinancing debt.”Varun Beverages is PepsiCo’s product distributor in 17 states and two Union Territories across India. It is also PepsiCo’s second-largest bottler in South Asia and has, apart from India, operations in Nepal and Sri Lanka. It also sells PepsiCo’s products in parts of Africa.
The inspector general of police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque said on Sunday there is no room for militant activities inside the Rohingya camps in disguise of relief.The police chief came up with remarks while addressing the briefing on law and order situation at the police headquarter with the chief of law enforcing agencies and the leaders of Puja and Ashura celebration committees, according to UNB.AKM Shahidul Hoque said “Our regular supervision and special monitoring is going on to check any militant activities inside the Rohinga camp. So it is not possible to conduct militancy activities.”He said “Police and their agents are kept alert to thwart any such attempt. No aid materials will be distributed without goes unchecked. The locals and Rohingyas are being made aware of it too for safety.””Some ill motivated efforts can be conducted to propagate militancy inside the helpless Rohinga. We will rule out all possibilities by our regular monitoring. We won’t allow Bangladesh’ soil to be used as a breeding ground for militants,” AKM Shahidul Hoque assured.IGP also said “Police have arrested over 200 Rohingya refugees from all across the country who will not be detained. Rather we will return them to their camps. We will conduct our drive everywhere to restrict their movement outside the camp for their better treatment.””If they spread in the country, they will become illegal immigrants. We will return them to their camp without arresting them on the humanitarian perspective. Registration will ensure their relief, accommodation, medicine and proper assistance,” he said.The country’s top policeman included that security measures will be enhanced to ensure a smooth and peaceful celebration of Durga Puja and Muharram as usual.
D.C. Council member Vincent Orange (D-At Large) recently introduced the Community College for All Scholarship Act.D.C. Council member Vincent Orange (D-At Large) on Feb. 3 introduced the “Community College For All Scholarship Act of 2015.” The legislation establishes a program to provide free tuition and fees at the University of the District of Columbia Community College, informally known as UDC-CC. Orange’s bill mirrors President Obama’s Jan. 9 proposal offering free community college to students maintaining a 2.5grade point average and studying at least half-time.“President Obama has already made the goal of a community college education a national agenda,” the council member said. “Access to a quality education should be inclusive, not exclusive. All District residents should have access to a quality college education.”The University of the District of Columbia (UDC) is the only public higher education institution in the city. The university consists of the community college, undergraduate, graduate, and the David A. Clarke School of Law, educating approximately 5,500 students.Orange’s bill states that students could attend UDC-CC free if they maintain a 2.0 GPA, complete their studies in two years, and engage in community service and mentoring. Tennessee, under its landmark Tennessee Promise program, and the city of Chicago, with its Chicago Star Scholarship initiative, have instituted free community college programs for qualified students. New Jersey’s NJ Stars program, offers up to five quarters of a free community college education in the state for students who graduate in the top 15 percent of their high school class. In Maryland, there are no bills before the Maryland General Assembly supporting free community college in the state, but Sen. Lisa Gladden (D-Baltimore) has legislation permitting graduates of Baltimore City high schools to attend Baltimore City Community College free.Dr. Bernie Sadusky, executive director of the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC), embraces Obama’s idea. “The fact that 80 percent of all future jobs in Maryland will need workers with the education levels that community colleges provide, coupled with economist’ assertions that high student debt levels can limit local economic growth, mean that it is time for new approaches to developing Maryland’s 21st century workforce,” Sadusky said. “Community colleges are uniquely positioned to meet this challenge. Moreover, the MACC is ready to work with state and federal agencies to design a free post-secondary tuition program that would achieve state and national educational and workforce development goals.”Orange’s bill was co-introduced by D.C. Council members Elissa Silverman (I-At Large), Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7), Anita Bonds (D-At Large), Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3), and Brianne Nadeau (D-Ward 1). “Today’s introduction by a majority of the council signifies that this council is dedicated to educating our residents,” Orange said.D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) referred the bill to the Committee of the Whole and a hearing date had not been set at AFRO press time.Michael Rogers, the vice president for institutional advancement at UDC, said that while university officials are aware of Orange’s bill, they have not responded to it, yet. “We are going to look at the bill and talk it over with our board of directors to see what happens next,” Rogers said.Jacque Patterson, an advisory neighborhood commissioner in Ward 8, engaged in the city’s educational issues, said free community college would be great for residents. Patterson notes that the city is financially sound with its latest projection of a $203 million surplus by the Fiscal Year 2014 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report released last month, and some of those funds could be used to pay for Orange’s program.“The city can definitely afford it,” Patterson said. “When people are educated, it helps our economy grow.”Patterson said there are other ways the city could fund the program. “The D.C. Chamber of Commerce could possibly get behind a small tax on businesses that would pay for free community college,” he said. “I think our business community can afford a two percent tax increase when they will be getting well-trained workers in return. We tax businesses in the city to pay for stadiums, why not pay for an education for residents?”
