It is 55 per cent owned by EQT and 45 per cent by a Goldman Sachs private equity fund.ISS blamed the cancellation on market volatility caused by “extraordinary external events”, including escalating violence in the Middle East and the ongoing disaster in Japan.ISS chairman Ole Andersen told City A.M.: “Although we had the book and offer completely covered within the price range, we had to sit down at the end of the period and ask ourselves, is this really the start we would like to see for ISS as a listed company?”However, some bankers queried the ambitious price range, which was cut from 100-135 Danish crowns to 100-110 Danish crowns on Wednesday.“It just felt wrong, like it had tripped up out of the box,” one senior banker said. ISS was being advised by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and HSBC.ISS joins media group Lagardere as the latest firm to put listing plans on hold, after the French company postponed the sale of its 20 per cent stake in TV channel Canal + France earlier this week. The turmoil has also caused speculation that Glencore International might cancel its $60bn listing, currently scheduled tentatively for the second quarter of this year. But sources close to the deal said that the Glencore float “is pretty uncontroversial” and unlikely to be derailed. whatsapp Thursday 17 March 2011 9:32 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical Geniusmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Today Show Comments ▼ ISS pulls its £1.6bn float

They may not have been the one lifting the trophies but they are the Six Nations side that has made the most significant strides since RWC 2019.They have a young squad with plenty of depth and are well coached – take this set move for Damian Penaud’s try against England last week… France Six Nations Squad 2021France kept their Six Nations title hopes alive until the last match but ultimately had to settle for second place in the table behind Wales.The French needed a big bonus-point win against Scotland at the Stade de France, but lost 27-23 following a late Duhan van der Merwe try.Related: Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 yearsCoupled with their narrow defeat by England at Twickenham, it was second place once more for France, who haven’t won a Six Nations title since 2010.Still, they look to be building nicely for a home World Cup in 2023. Their disappointment at missing out on a Grand Slam by losing to England last week was evident when the final whistle blew at Twickenham. The question now is whether they can bounce back to beat Wales and maintain their title hopes. There’s no doubting their talent and skills, but this could come down to mentality.

He was in superb form before injury struck just before the championship and his triple threat of step, fend and offload are sure to keep England busy in defence.Some might have expected Romain Ntamack to come back into the starting line-up now he’s recovered from jaw surgery, but Matthieu Jalibert has been excellent at fly-half in this championship and deserves to retain the No 10 shirt. It will be interesting to see if Fabien Galthie brings Ntamack on to play alongside Jalibert in a dual playmaking option – the pair at 10-12 could prove very effective.Bernard Le Roux’s injury means they lose experience in the second row but Romain Taofifenua and Paul Willemse will form a hefty unit. Plus, with an six-two split between forwards and backs on the bench, it’s clear France are keen to take England on physically up front.France team to play Ireland – Sunday 14 FebruaryBrice Dulin; Damian Penaud, Arthur Vincent, Gael Fickou, Gabin Villiere; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Bernard Le Roux, Paul Willemse, Anthony Jelonch, Gregory Alldritt, Charles Ollivon.Replacements: Pierre Bourgarit, Hassane Kolingar, Uini Atonio, Romain Taofifenua, Dylan Cretin, Baptiste Serin, Anthony Bouthier, Teddy ThomasFrance team to play Italy – Saturday 6 FebruaryBrice Dulin; Teddy Thomas, Arthur Vincent, Gael Fickou, Gabin Villiere; Matthieu Jalibert, Antoine Dupont; Cyril Baille, Julien Marchand, Mohamed Haouas, Bernard Le Roux, Paul Willemse, Dylan Cretin, Gregory Alldritt, Charles Ollivon.Replacements: Pierre Bourgarit, Jean-Baptiste Gros, Dorian Aldegheri, Romain Taofifenua, Anthony Jelonch, Baptiste Serin, Louis Carbonel, Damian Penaud.France Six Nations squad 2021Forwards(DoB/Club/Position/Test debut/caps)Dorian Aldegheri (4 Aug 1993/Toulouse/Prop/2019 v England/8)Gregory Alldritt (23 March 1997/La Rochelle/Back-row/2019 v Wales/23)Cyril Baille (15 Sep 1993/Toulouse/Prop/2016 v Samoa/28)Pierre Bourgarit (12 Sep 1997/La Rochelle/Hooker/2018 v New Zealand/5)Cyril Cazeaux (10 Feb 1995/Bordeaux Bègles/Lock/2020 v Italy/2)Camille Chat (18 Dec 1995/Racing 92/Hooker/2016 v Ireland/33)Dylan Cretin (4 Mar 1997/Lyon/Back-row/2020 v Wales/10)Jean-Baptiste Gros (29 May 1999/Toulon/Prop/2020 v Wales/9)Mohamed Haouas (9 Mar 1994/Montpellier/2020 v England/12)Wilfrid Hounkpatin (29 Jul 1991/Castres/Prop/uncapped)Anthony Jelonch (28 Jul 1996/Castres/Back-row/2017 v New Zealand/8)Bernard Le Roux (4 Jun 1989/Racing 92/Back-row/2013 v New Zealand/47)Julien Marchand (10 May 1995/Toulouse/Hooker/2018 v Fiji/14)Charles Ollivon (11 May 1993/Toulon/Back-row/2014 v Fiji/23)Romain Taofifenua (13 Sep 1990/Toulon/Lock/2012 v Argentina/25)Paul Willemse (13 Nov 1993/Montpellier/Lock/2019 v Wales/16)Cameron Woki (7 November 1998/Bordeaux Bègles/Back-row/2020 v England/5)BacksAnthony Bouthier (19 Jun 1992/Montpellier/Full-back/2020 v England/6)Baptiste Couilloud (22 Jul 1997/Lyon/Scrum-half/2018 v Italy/5)Jonathan Danty (7 Oct 1992/Stade Francias/Centre/2016 v Italy/6)Brice Dulin (13 Apr 1990/La Rochelle/Full-back/2012 v Argentina/36)Antoine Dupont (15 Nov 1996/Toulouse/Scrum-half/2017 v Italy/32)Gael Fickou (26 Mar 1994/Stade Francias/Centre/2013 v Scotland/63)Matthieu Jalibert (6 Nov 1998/Bordeaux Bègles/Fly-half/2018 v Ireland/12)Yoram Moefana (18 Jul 2000/Bordeaux Bègles/Centre/2020 v Italy/2)Romain Ntamack (1 May 1999/Toulouse/Fly-half/2019 v Wales/20)Damian Penaud (25 Sep 1996/Clermont/Wing/2017 v South Africa/22)Baptiste Serin (20 Jun 1994/Toulon/Scrum-half/2016 v Argentina/42)Donovan Taofifenua (30 Mar 1999/Racing 92/Wing/Uncapped)Teddy Thomas (18 Sep 1993/Racing 92/Wing/2014 v Fiji/27)Virimi Vakatawa (1 May 1992/Racing 92/Centre/2016 v Italy/30)Home turf: France play their home matches at Stade de France (Getty Images)France Six Nations Fixtures 2021(All kick-off times are GMT)Sat 6 February, Italy 10-50 France Dupont dazzles as France crush Italy in Six Nations openerSun 14 February, Ireland 13-15 France France win in Dublin for first time since 2011Fri 26 March, France 23-27 Scotland Scotland beat France in Paris for first time in 22 yearsSat 13 March, England 23-20 France Antoine Dupont scores after 65 secondsSat 20 March, France 32-30 Wales Late Brice Dulin try denies Wales a Grand SlamDon’t miss a game with our TV coverage guide France ended this year’s championship in second place Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Supporters of Rev. Edward Pinkney demonstrate in Grand Rapids, Mich., demanding he be released on bond.The Rev. Edward Pinkney, political prisoner, was transferred on Sept. 7 from the Marquette Branch Prison in the far north of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Some 11 months after arriving at that prison and suffering months of threats and abuse from guards, he was sent to West Shoreline Correctional Facility outside of Muskegon. His new location is only 90 miles from the home of his spouse, Dorothy Pinkney. The distance to Marquette, in comparison, was 500 miles.Rev. Pinkney has now served 22 months of his 30-month minimum sentence. On Dec. 15, 2014, he was given a 2 ½ to 10 year sentence for supposedly altering dates on a recall petition against then Mayor James Hightower of Benton Harbor, Mich. Rev. Pinkney was convicted with no evidence, simply for being the leader of the recall effort and a well-known activist in his home town. His case has drawn the support of the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Lawyers Guild, as well as many groups and individuals across Michigan.Attorney Tim Holloway filed an “Application for Leave to Appeal” with the Michigan Supreme Court on Rev. Pinkney’s behalf on Sept. 3. This reporter visited Rev. Pinkney at his new location on Sept. 30 and asked him about his long sought after transfer. He acknowledged the efforts of his supporters, who worked tirelessly to draw attention to the mistreatment, harassment and abuse he faced every day in Marquette Prison.This campaign included picketing the Michigan Department of Corrections in Lansing, protesting across the state, including outside Marquette’s prison gate, contacting state legislators to intervene for Rev. Pinkney’s safety and telephone barrages to Gov. Snyder and Heidi Washington, MDOC director.‘They wanted to get rid of me’According to Rev. Pinkney, “What I think was the final straw was when state Rep. Dave Pagel showed up at Marquette Prison during the last week of August. He is the chairperson of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of Corrections. And the first thing he did was to ask to see me! This kind of blew the minds of the prison officials.“I talked with Pagel in the law library for quite a while,” explained Rev. Pinkney. “After he left, my prison counselor wanted to know how I had so much ‘juice.’ I asked her if she wanted me to get her a raise or, maybe, a promotion.”Less than two weeks later, Rev. Pinkney was told to pack his things because he was leaving the next morning. “They wanted to get rid of me and all the scrutiny that comes with housing a political prisoner,” he stressed.Even with a possible appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court, which will take many months, Rev. Pinkney is looking for his earliest release to occur in June 2017. He is enjoying many more visitors already — and his supporters are not letting up on their organizing.Detroit activists from the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI.org), the Moratorium Now! Coalition Against Foreclosures, and the Detroit Active and Retired Employees Association joined together on Sept. 23 to carry out an all-day fish fry fundraiser for Rev. Pinkney’s defense. It raised hundreds of dollars.Plans are also in place to distribute leaflets about Rev. Pinkney at a regional conference of Amnesty International in Dearborn, Mich., on Oct. 8.Send birthday greetingsRev. Pinkney will celebrate another birthday behind bars. Oct. 27 is his 68th birthday. A campaign is underway to have hundreds of people send hundreds of cards and letters to him to express support — and to let the West Shoreline prison administration know they are being watched by Rev. Pinkney’s supporters around the country, who are paying attention to how he is being treated.Send cards and letters to The Rev. Edward Pinkney #294671, West Shoreline Correctional Facility, 2500 S.
