The fight for the crown jewel of the Australian gambling scene is heating up. The watchdog later said Crown isn’t fit to hold the gambling license necessary to open its new Sydney casino, housed in a skyscraper overlooking the city’s harbor. Private-equity company Blackstone and Australian casino operator Star Entertainment have made offers to buy the whole company. Under the agreement, CPH can’t appoint nominees to Crown’s board until October 2024 and can’t talk to the company about its operations privately. Following the recent revelations, official investigations also are under way into Crown’s existing casinos in Perth and Melbourne.

Private Equity’s Biggest Tax Tactics
  + stars: | 2021-06-14 | by ( Andrew Ross Sorkin | Jason Karaian | Sarah Kessler | ) + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
Private equity has conquered the American tax systemThe $4.5 trillion buyout industry “has perfected sleight-of-hand tax-avoidance strategies so aggressive that at least three private equity officials have alerted the Internal Revenue Service to potentially illegal tactics,” according to a new investigation by The Times. These previously unreported whistle-blower claims involved dozens of private equity firms, Jesse Drucker and Danny Hakim report. audits of private equity firms are “almost nonexistent,” said Michael Desmond, who stepped down this year as the I.R.S.’s chief counsel. After ProPublica’s recent revelation that some of America’s richest men paid little or no federal taxes, the push to tax private equity may gain new momentum. Like those before him, his ability to increase private equity’s tax burden will face resistance in the form of the industry’s formidable lobbying operations, which have derailed many past efforts.

Queen Elizabeth II Welcomed the Bidens to a Private Tea at Windsor

CARBIS BAY, England — Queen Elizabeth II was a spry presence at the Group of 7 meeting in Cornwall, England, on Friday, wisecracking during a group photo with world leaders and cutting a cake with a sword. But on Sunday, when she welcomed President Biden and the first lady, Jill Biden, to her own home, Windsor Castle, it was a very private visit, with cameras and reporters kept well away. Mr. Biden and the queen inspected an honor guard of grenadiers in the castle’s sun-splashed quadrangle before retiring inside for tea. The queen has sought refuge at Windsor since abandoning Buckingham Palace early last year as the coronavirus pandemic was bearing down on Britain. It was Mr. Biden’s last meeting before he left for Brussels, the next stop in his European tour.

Private Inequity: How a Powerful Industry Conquered the Tax System
  + stars: | 2021-06-12 | by ( Jesse Drucker | Danny Hakim | ) sentiment -0.71   time to read: +1 min
Private equity’s ability to vanquish the I.R.S., Treasury and Congress goes a long way toward explaining the deep inequities in the U.S. tax system. When it comes to bankrolling the federal government, the richest of America’s rich — many of them hailing from the private equity industry — play by an entirely different set of rules than everyone else. The result is that men like Blackstone Group’s chief executive, Stephen A. Schwarzman, who earned more than $610 million last year, can pay federal taxes at rates similar to the average American. Lawmakers have periodically tried to force private equity to pay more, and the Biden administration has proposed a series of reforms, including enlarging the I.R.S.’s enforcement budget and closing loopholes. The push for reform gained new momentum after ProPublica’s recent revelation that some of America’s richest men paid little or no federal taxes.

Volkswagen Finance Private Ltd said in a statement that it had acquired a major stake in Indian loan brokerage portal KUWY Technologies to service its retail customers.

Verizon turns on commercial private 5G in U.S.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoVerizon Business (VZ.N) on Thursday launched its first commercially available private 5G network in the U.S. to offer businesses and government departments high-speed indoor or outdoor connectivity. Private 5G networks remove the need for businesses to jostle for speed with others on a public network and help enable data-intensive applications that use computer vision, augmented reality and machine learning to increase productivity. Verizon has been trialing private 5G with several customers, including Associated British Ports, and have partnered with the likes of Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Amazon (AMZN.O). The private 5G network, managed by Verizon, would keep all cellular traffic on the premises of the customer to increase security, while authorised remote users can still access applications. Verizon is seeing a lot of demand from financial institutions to increase speed of trading flows using 5G, and warehouses, which are planning to use robots and autonomous vehicles, Sampath said.

Cellebrite's customers have mostly been police in the past, but now it's pursuing more private contracts. According to Carmil, Apple has been trying to patch vulnerabilities that Cellebrite exploits since 2011, and Cellebrite has been in a similar cat-and-mouse game with Samsung since 2016. Carmil also speculated that companies like Apple and Samsung may ultimately determine that it's in their best interests not to fight Cellebrite's technology.

Private equity and hedge funds have added to the fund's performance over the past 10 years, he said. The Ohio pension plan's holdings in private equity and hedge funds have stumbled. Private equity firms buy companies, borrowing money to do so, and hope to sell them at a profit later. In his research, Phalippou included rebuttals from private equity firms and a lobbying group that criticized his analysis, noting that investors are "highly satisfied" with private equity performance and disclosures. "The first issue is lack of transparency" in the pension plan's private equity and hedge fund investments, Rayfield said.
