Up and Rising Private Equity Firm: Great Western Consortium Inc.

NEW YORK, USA, September 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first generation of Wall Street’s Barbarians at the Gate have taken their firms public and charted out ambitious expansions into hedge funds, debt financing and real estate.

Now there is a new breed of private equity firms emerging, especially worth mentioning is the Nevada based private equity firm, Great Western Consortium Inc.

Both people who work in the asset class, and investors who put money into private equity funds say, GWC Inc. is the industry’s rising star.

The firm also appears to have learned from their predecessors’ missteps. Many big private equity firms larded investments with debt in the pre-crisis years, with that debt later proving difficult to pay down.

The new class of private equity up-and-comers has stuck to smaller, more conservative deals and focused on raking in impressive returns.

Pennsylvania-based Credit Union PSECU Commits $20K to Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts, Encourages Member Giving with Donation Match up to an Additional $80K

Harrisburg, PA – In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and surrounding areas, the Board of Directors of PSECU, a leading Pennsylvania-based credit union, authorized a corporate donation of $20,000 to assist with recovery efforts. Encouraging its members to contribute to the cause, the credit union has also committed to matching their donations up to an additional $80,000, increasing its potential give to a total of $100,000.

“At PSECU, we make it a priority to follow the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people,’ and with that in mind, we feel strongly that as an organization we need to take action to help those facing severe challenges as a result of heavy rains, wind, and flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Making financial contributions to charities that are doing work on the scene is how we are ensuring that funds are deployed quickly and efficiently to help those in need,” said PSECU Board Chair Joseph Sassano. “We also felt that it was important for us to give our more than 400,000 members the opportunity to contribute to the cause and help make a difference. Our matching commitment aims to strengthen their individual giving ability.”

PSECU’s initial $20,000 donation will be shared equally among eight national and international charities that are aiding hurricane recovery in diverse ways, from providing shelter to displaced individuals, to distributing essential food supplies, to assisting animals in need. Each of the charities will receive $2,500 to support their efforts. The full list includes:

• American Red Cross
• AmeriCares
• Direct Relief
• Feeding America
• The Humane Society of the United States
• National Credit Union Foundation
• Salvation Army
• United Way Worldwide

To be counted toward PSECU’s $80,000 matching commitment, the credit union’s members’ donations must be made to one of the selected charities listed above using a PSECU credit or debit card or PSECU Bill Payer service. After 90 days, the credit union will calculate total member donations and distribute the matching funds among the charities proportionate to members’ giving preferences.

“While we do greatly appreciate the work being done by countless organizations to assist those experiencing hardship due to Hurricane Harvey, for tracking purposes, to be included in our matching contribution, members must make their donation to one of the specified charities,” said PSECU President Greg Smith. “So that we have an accurate record of the donations, we are also asking that members make their donation using a PSECU credit or debit card or PSECU Bill Payer service.”

“It’s our sincere hope that through these efforts – potentially reaching $100,000, we can make a positive impact on those experiencing hardship as a result of Hurricane Harvey,” added Sassano.

Asia Is A Hub Of Good Opportunities For Chemicals Companies

Asia Is A Hub Of Good Opportunities For Chemicals Companies

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, August 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Asia, being the major hub for emerging markets, is an attractive region for chemicals companies to focus on. Chemicals companies are expected to receive a considerable growth opportunities in 2016-2020. Asia’s global chemicals market is expected to reach $4 trillion with 9.5% growth rate by 2020, according to the recent “Chemicals Global Market Report 2017” by The Business Research Company (TBRC). The concentration of manufacturing industries, the growth of Asian economies, and the lower cost of labor in developing countries such as India and China are the key reasons for Asia region’s dominance in the global market. The economic growth of Asian countries is attracting the chemicals industry, most chemicals companies are entering markets in Asia to gain from this economic growth.
The chemicals industry is one of the largest manufacturing industries in the world. It manufactures a variety of chemicals products by processing raw materials such as air, water, natural gas, oil, metals and minerals. While many of the products from the industry, such as detergents, soaps and perfumes, are purchased directly by the consumer, 70% of chemicals manufactured are used by other industries, including other branches of the chemicals industry itself, to make products.
The Middle East and Africa also provides good opportunities for investors in chemicals field. The market was valued at $50 billion in 2016 and it is expected to grow at 5.1% growth rate reaching $61 billion by 2020. The region is mainly driven by the petrochemicals market in Gulf countries, which is also the largest chemicals market segment in the region. Other drivers of the market can be water treatment chemicals, construction chemicals, paints and coatings etc.
To be one step ahead competitors TBRC recommends chemical companies to adopt IOT (Internet of Things) technologies to connect equipment’s and smart devices to garner real time insights and locate gaps in the manufacturing process. The data obtained is processed, analyzed and interpreted by plant managers and senior level management to improve quality and achieve optimum production levels. For example, smart systems give information on the working condition and performance of chemical reactors with embedded software and analytics tools to notify plant operators and managers on possible machine breakdowns.

EJL Wireless Research Forecasts Global Macrocell 5G NR Transceiver shipments to hit 190 million units in 2021

Product Code: GTRXMAF-S-2017

Earl Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

Huawei Technologies is #1 for FDD LTE while ZTE is #1 for TDD LTE as Chinese vendors take control of the market; 4T4R FDD Transition to Double Transceiver TAM

Massive MIMO ARS for 5G using higher frequency band spectrum will effectively usher in a “period of prosperity” for the compound semiconductor industry”

— Earl Lum, President, EJL Wireless Research LLC

SALEM, NH, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shipments of macrocell radio transceivers (TRx) increased by 41% in 2016 to another year of record shipments, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell Radio Transceiver (TRx) Market Analysis and Forecast, 2017-2021 13th Edition.” “We expect that 5G new radio (NR) transceiver shipments will capture 80% of overall shipments by 2021,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting that the macrocell radio TRx market will see a 4% decline in shipments in 2017 due to lower CAPEX spending in China and Asia Pacific as well as softness in other regions before rebounding to growth in 2018.

EJL Wireless Research estimates that Chinese equipment vendors accounted for 66% of total radio TRx shipments in 2016 and have broken a deadlock at the 50% market share level they have shared with the European vendors over the past few years. Coupled with the expectations that China will be one of the first countries to commercially launch 5G services by 2020, the Chinese equipment vendors are again expected to dominate their home market.

“We forecast that the migration of mobile networks towards 4.5G LTE-Advanced Pro technology with 4T4R remote radio units (RRU) will essentially double the total available market (TAM) for radio TRx while massive MIMO antenna radio systems (ARS) will increase the TRx multiplying factor by another 4-32x,” says Lum.

“Massive MIMO ARS for 5G using higher frequency band spectrum will effectively usher in a “period of prosperity” for the compound semiconductor industry as silicon semiconductor technologies for RF power amplifiers give way to gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN) based compound semiconductors. Microwave 5G NR TRx for the 26/28GHz spectrum is forecasted to exceed 20 million units by 2021,” says Lum.

Startup Funding In The USA Further Weakens in H1 2017 Signaling End of an Era

Funding Deals Are Going Down

Even Seed Stage Funding IS Gettng Tougher to Get In The USA

Funding For US Based Startups Became Tougher In H1 2017

Startups in the USA went through harsh times in H1 of 2017; the first half had the lowest amount of funding in recent years.

The startups have to build a strong investor attractiveness to tide over this investment drought, one of the ways out is to join strong Startup Pre Accelerators to build upon their start-up ideas.”

— Abhishek Singh, COO – YoStartups

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, August 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — YoStartups analyzed the startup funding scene in the USA for the first half of 2017 through its research team, Investments in US-based startups are considerably down.

According to YoStartups, H1 of 2017, did not only witness the lower number of investment deals, but the amount of funding was the lowest when compared to the last four years H1 period. One of the reasons for the poor show can be attributed to the lack of billion dollars investment rounds. Apart from OneWeb, which raised $1.2 billion round with Softbank, no other investment rounds even crossed over $600 million.

We saw investment activities rebounding in 2017 with some of the huge investment rounds raised by WeWork, Argo AI, Grail, and some other companies. However, still, the startup funding could not surpass the golden times of H1 2016.

Startups Funding trend in the USA – H1 2017

The first quarter of 2017 provided a good start to the year with $18 billion in total funding raised across 1580 round of deals. Feb 2017 turned out to be a golden month which started with Argo AI raising $1 billion round, followed by $500 million round by SoFi and WeWork ended the month with $3 billion over two rounds from SoftBank.
The second quarter of 2017 proved to be equally good regarding total funding, though it witnessed 12% fewer rounds of investment in comparison to Q1 2017. What is more interesting to notice is that Q2 did have even had a single close to billion dollar rounds like Q1, but it still compensates for it with 30# $100 million plus investment rounds during the period which is one of the highest in the recent times.

During the half-year period, 37% of total investment went at seed stage rounds, which is 4-6% lower, when compared to previous half years. The contribution of Series-A rounds rose to 16.8%, which is 31% higher when compared to the same period in 2016.

Startup funding rounds that made headlines in the USA – H1 2017

WeWork, the fastest growing office leasing startup was in the lime light with its two mega rounds led by SoftBank. WeWork is looking to further consolidate its position by expanding their network to India, which is one of the hottest markets for real estate companies.

Pittsburgh-based artificial intelligence company, Argo AI, followed WeWork. They raised $1 billion round with Ford Motor Company in Feb 2017. Argo AI is looking to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence, i.e. self-driving vehicles.

California-based life sciences company, Grail raised $900 million in March in Series-B round from ARCH Venture Partners. The company uses the power of high-intensity sequencing, population-scale clinical trials, and state of the art computer science and data science to enhance the scientific understanding of cancer biology. They develop blood tests and blood screen for early–stage cancer detection.

Startup Mergers and Acquisitions in the USA – H1 2017

Fitness wearable company, Fitbit that went public in mid-2015 acquired Vector Watch in Jan 2017 that designs and develops smart watches and wearable technologies. With the move, Fitbit seems to combine all the engineering brains working on smart watches and wearable technologies, like in a very similar move it acquired another smart watch startup Pebble in Nov 2016. In the same month, we saw cyber security company RiskIQ acquiring another cyber security company from Israel, Maccabim.com.

In February, online lending company SoFi acquired Zenbanx, the online banking provider in $100 million deal. The move was seen as an effort by SoFi to diversify its financial offering to customers. Just in six months, SoFi has cleared its intention of shutting the operations for Zenbanx, and it plans to use its tech stack and personnel for introducing its own online bank.

Throughout the year Airbnb has been further spanning its outreach and strengthening its technology by acquiring four different companies. It acquired Luxury Retreats and Tilt in February, while Deco Software in May and Trooly in June this year.

Augmented Reality company, Magic Leap acquired Computer Vision company Dacuda in Feb and a gaming company Fuzzycube Software in April 2017. While Pinterest and Lyft acquired Jelly HW and FinitePaths respectively this year.

Conclusion

Though the US continues to dominate in the startup world, and that too specifically as an ecosystem with strong support for early stage companies, only to be distantly followed by India. The decreasing number of investment deals in the country is coming up as a reason for worry for some. When compared to the same period in 2015, the number of investment deals have gone down by 45% which the quite alarming. The total amount of funding looks to be on the track, but we need to realize the fact that the main reason behind it is the huge rounds raised by the unicorns.

With the emergence of strong startup hubs outside of the USA, which are increasingly more appealing to the investors, investment deals continue to plummet in the USA. If the trend continues, early and mid stage startups will suffer the most. The startups have to build a strong investor attractiveness to tide over this investment drought, one of the ways out is to join strong Startup Pre Accelerators to build upon commercially viable start-up ideas.
