$14 bn Foreign PE Flows to Indian Real Estate in 5 Years, 63% in Commercial RE

Shobhit Agarwal, MD & CEO – ANAROCK Capital


Domestic PE funds invested just USD 2.4 bn in this period – 71% in residential, 25% in commercial RE

"Domestic PE funds pumped nearly USD 2.4 bn into Indian real estate since 2015, of which nearly 71% (approx. USD 1.7 bn) went to the housing sector.”

— Shobhit Agarwal, MD & CEO – ANAROCK Capital

MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Indian real estate attracted nearly USD 14 bn of foreign private equity (PE) between 2015 and Q3 2019, says latest ANAROCK data. 63% (approx. USD 8.8 bn) of the total foreign investments backed commercial real estate. The residential sector attracted just USD 1.5 bn of foreign PE in the same period, trailing behind even the retail sector which saw cumulative inflows of USD 1.7 bn.

Shobhit Agarwal, MD & CEO – ANAROCK Capital says, "In stark contrast, domestic PE funds pumped nearly USD 2.4 bn into Indian real estate since 2015, of which nearly 71% (approx. USD 1.7 bn) went to the housing sector. This was a period of considerable stress for the residential segment; domestic funds invested heavily into a sector plagued by issues like delayed/stalled units, low sales and fairly lower yields. This made exiting investments with substantial gains difficult."

The commercial real estate segment, on the other hand, delivered a comparatively stellar performance in the last five years. Steady demand and rising rentals gave foreign investors a decisive edge. Moreover, the overwhelming response to Embassy Office Parks’ REIT launch – and its superlative performance – saw commercial real estate segment emerge as the bigger draw for investors. Several other large developers are also keen on listing their commercial assets under REITs.

An additional infusion of USD 1.6 bn between 2015 and Q3 2019 was a mix of foreign private equity and funding by Indian developers or investors who collaborated either at project or entity levels. For instance, in 2018, Canada’s CPPIB and India’s Phoenix Group together invested nearly USD 100 mn into a mall project in Bangalore.

Domestic vs Foreign PE Funds

• Of the total USD 14 bn foreign investments in Indian real estate between 2015 and Q3 2019, nearly USD 8.8 bn went into commercial realty, followed by USD 1.7 bn in the retail sector and USD 1.5 bn into the housing sector. Logistics & warehousing drew over USD 1 bn, and the remaining investments went into mixed-use developments.
• The reverse played out with domestic funds – of the total USD 2.4 bn they invested in this period, housing drew the lion’s share of USD 1.7 bn (or 71%); commercial came next with approx. USD 600 mn and retail drew just USD 40 mn of domestic funding.
• The top 5 foreign investors – Blackstone, Brookfield, GIC, Ascendas and Xander – alone contributed 75% of the overall USD 14 bn into Indian real estate. Interestingly, their focus was not limited to the top 7 cities and extended into tier 2 cities like Indore, Ahmedabad and Amritsar.
• The top 5 domestic funds – Motilal Oswal, HDFC Venture, Kotak Realty, ASK Group and Aditya Birla PE – invested nearly 54% or approx. USD 1.3 bn into Indian real estate. They focused exclusively on the top 7 cities.

Crystal-gazing Future PE Trends

Indian commercial real estate will continue to attract PE funds as there is high demand for Grade A office spaces across the top Indian cities. Earlier data indicated that the first three quarters of 2019 alone saw inflows of USD 3 bn in the commercial segment – an increase of 43% over the corresponding period in 2018.

Logistics, warehousing and retail will continue to witness considerable growth on the back of recently-eased policy norms for the retail sector, aimed at boosting growth and attracting more investments.

Over the short-to-mid-terms, the Indian housing sector – which has the greatest need for liquidity infusions – will retain its 'poor cousin' status and garner much more gradual attention from wary investors. Though the FM recently unleashed an alternative investment fund (AIF) of INR 25,000 crore to revive languishing housing projects across the country, investors will watch for actual implementation and deployment.

ANAROCK Capital data indicates:

– The residential segment drew approx. USD 295 mn PE funding in the first three quarters of 2019 (against USD 210 mn in the corresponding period last year)
– Though this constitutes an impressive 40% annual gain, investments are still far below the 2015 peak levels of 2015, when housing drew PE investments of approx. USD 1.5 bn.

MacDonald Mines is building a significant Gold asset near Sudbury

Gold Zones at Scadding Mine Deposit

MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: BMK) is encountering spectacular high-grade gold intercepts on stackings of thick gold zones.

MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX:BMK)

BMK.V's technical team has been able to find what past operators struggled with; the team has found the main direction of continuity of zones of high-grade mineralization.”

— Mining MarketWatch Journal

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: BMK) (US Listing: MCDMF) (Frankfurt: 3M72) is encountering spectacular high-grade gold intercepts on stackings of thick gold zones using a predictive model at its 100%-owned 17,720 hectares SPJ Project, located ~33km SE of Sudbury, Ontario Canada. So impressive is this growing IOCG-style (gold dominant) project that well-known precious metal investor Eric Sprott has taken a strategic position in BMK.V this October-2019.
The potential for a near-term high-grade shallow open-pitting production scenario (followed by underground) is increasingly developing off the North Pit of the historic Scadding Mine as MacDonald Mines builds intrinsic value with each new drill hole, and with only 5% of this land package having been explored to date there is also the possibility to see many more discoveries, especially since IOCG-style mineralized success often occurs in clusters.

MacDonald Mines is the subject of a Mining Journal review, the full review may be viewed at https://miningmarketwatch.net/bmk.htm online.

"SPJ" stands for the assemblage of the Scadding, Powerline, and Jovan properties. MacDonald Mines Exploration recently assembled this brownfield land package and only began drilling this August-2019, expanding off the known high-grade mineralization next to the historic Scadding Mine (which is located on the property with an active mining permit in place), a past-producer in the 1980's of 144,000 tons of ore from open-pit at a grade of 7.43 g/t gold and 0.9% copper. The Norstar Mine, located within 500 metres of the Jovan Property, produced 63,000 tons of ore at a grade of 7.2 g/t gold and 0.9% copper (OFR 5771). Grab samples from the Norstar waste pile also contain 0.065 to 0.3% cobalt (a desirable and apparently viable companion-kicker if that deposit was mined today).

Headline grades of recent Gold intercepts in the Scadding Deposit from BMK.V's 2019 drilling campaign on SPJ Property:
October 22, 2019: MacDonald Mines Hits Three High-Grade Gold Zones with 21.66 g/t Gold over 1.64 m including 40.6 g/t Gold over .87 m.
October 15, 2019: MacDonald Mines Drills 11.10 g/t Gold over 6.14 m at its SPJ Property.
October 7, 2019: MacDonald Mines Drills 14.04 g/t Gold over 4.21 m at its SPJ Property.
September 26, 2019: MacDonald Mines Intersects High-Grade Gold in the Scadding Deposit – Drills 52 g/t Gold over 12 m.
To date BMK.V has reported 5 holes from its 2019 drilling campaign, and has other drill core in the lab with results pending. The Company is cashed-up to continue drilling, able to drill year round, and investors can look forward to a continued stream of news. Some of the drill core currently in the lab looks spectacular with holes having intersected multiple zones of iron-rich chlorite with visible gold in the core (note: iron-rich chlorite is what holds the high-grade gold mineralization on this IOCG-style deposit, it is the equivalent of finding a quartz vein in say Timmins), and others (results pending) having intersected hydrothermal breccia zone(s) containing iron-rich chlorite that has been associated with impressive gold mineralization in holes holes 001 through 005. (A summary, with insight, of holes with results pending is provided in a recent Company Exploration Update).

BMK.V's technical team has been able to find what past operators struggled with; the team has found the main direction of continuity of zones of high-grade mineralization. This has enabled them to develop a predictive model that is yielding quality intercepts, and in time should lead to a meaningful resource estimate.
The Company's 2019 drill program has traced multiple zones of high-grade mineralization in the North Pit area over 100 metres along strike and down dip over 150 metres. There appears large upside share price appreciation in store for shareholders as drilling continues; the main structures that control mineralization are oriented North-South with a corridor width at least 500 m wide, the strike length can be traced at least over 500 m and theorized to be going much further — possibly 2 km (Note: on November 13, 2019 the Company announced grab samples yielding anomalous cobalt, copper, nickel and gold values extending on strike 3.5 km NE of the Scadding Mine in the northern extension of the associated uranium anomaly, further confirming the enormous potential).

A new USD $700,000 grant from Citi Foundation, will enable Youth Business International (YBI) to provide 4,500 young people with entrepreneurship training

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new USD $700,000 grant, part of Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress global initiative, will enable Youth Business International (YBI) to provide 4,500 young people with entrepreneurship skills training across Europe, Kazakhstan and Russia – generating 1,150 new jobs.

Youth Business International (YBI) and Citi Foundation announced today their renewed commitment to supporting young entrepreneurs from a low income background across Europe to start, sustain and grow successful businesses.

Started in 2015, this partnership – called Youth Business Europe – has delivered impressive results by providing aspiring young entrepreneurs with an integrated package of financial and non-financial support. This includes entrepreneurship skills training, mentoring and access to low-interest loans. To date, 24,000 young people have been supported. These young people have started or strengthened 5,700 businesses.

The programme has supported talented young people across Europe to realise their potential through entrepreneurship. This includes Mohamed, a Syrian refugee who brought a touch of his culture to Belgium by opening a Syrian restaurant, and Roisin, originally from rural Ireland, who set up her photography business in Dublin.

According to Eurostat, youth unemployment rates across Europe remain high – reaching 15% in January 2019. Spain and Italy struggle with the highest rates of youth unemployment in Europe at 33%. The new partnership will build on the achievements of the Youth Business Europe partnership to date, ensuring a continued focus on tackling this pressing issue.

Key partnership features and future goals:

– this latest partnership has been expanded to include Russia and Kazakhstan;
– Youth Business Europe now includes YBI member organizations in 10 countries: Belgium (microStart), France (Adie, Positive Planet), Germany (KIZ), Italy (MicroLab), Ireland (Inner City Enterprise), Kazakhstan (MOST Business Incubator), the Netherlands (Qredits), Russia (Youth Business Russia and ImpactHub Moscow), Spain (Youth Business Spain), and Sweden (Swedish Jobs and Society);
– over the next year it will provide a further 4,500 low income youth with entrepreneurship training;
– it will help 1,000 youth to start or grow a business;
– it will help to create 1,150 new jobs;
– it will have a strong focus in supporting more young women into entrepreneurship
– a new “Young Entrepreneurs in Europe Awards”, showcasing the most successful young entrepreneurship stories generated by the program from its starting.

Anita Tiessen, CEO of YBI, said: “As youth unemployment remains high across Europe, we are determined to support more aspiring young entrepreneurs to create and strengthen their own businesses. Recognizing the additional barriers that women often face in starting a business, we share Citi Foundation’s commitment to women’s economic empowerment and will support more young women into entrepreneurship by making gender a cross-cutting issue.”

Rachael Barber, EMEA Head of Community Development at Citi, said: “At Citi, we believe that entrepreneurship can help young Europeans to build a livelihood. We are delighted that our continued partnership with YBI will also reflect our shared commitment to women’s economic empowerment, as well as bridging the gap between the entrepreneurial aspirations of young people and the challenges they face today.”

Youth Business Europe is Citi Foundation’s flagship European programme, and is part of its Pathways to Progress initiative, which works to prepare and equip urban youth with the tools to thrive in today's economy. 2017 saw the expansion of Pathways to Progress globally, with a $100 million commitment from the Citi Foundation to reach 500,000 young people with entrepreneurship and employability training before 2020.

CRA & IRS Change Tax Rules As It Pertains To Cellphone Expenses For Employers & Employees

Forbes Technology Council Features mobilityView – Four Tips To Help Businesses Keep Effective Mobile Use Records Before Tax Time (CRA & IRS)

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Four Tips To Help Businesses Keep Effective Mobile Use Records Before Tax Time
Forbes Technology Council

The tax landscape in the business sector frequently changes in North America, and many companies are completely oblivious to the announced changes and the impact of these changes. Changes may be prompted in part because governments at all levels (including municipalities and counties and federal governments) are struggling with massive budget deficits and debts. As an example of important tax regulations, in the United States and in Canada, businesses need to be aware of the tax code as it pertains to the tax treatment and deductibility of a cellphone, from corporate taxes in the U.S. and from the employee taxable benefit perspective in Canada.

The IRS in the U.S. is taking a slightly different approach from Canada in that it is focusing on companies rather than individuals and emphasizes that the company must be tax compliant. This could result in a more efficient tax collection process. In general, you can deduct only the business portion of any business expense, including business use of your home or car and anything else you may use for business. Therefore, it's helpful to require employees to maintain a "mileage book" for the car and cellphone, as well as details about your wireless subscription plan, so that you can present it to the IRS. To remain compliant with the IRS's cellphone policy, you should document business and personal usage for every call, text message and packet of data. A company can't deduct 100% of the cellphone from corporate taxes. Only the documented and substantiated business portion of the cellphone may be deducted.

For many companies in Canada and the U.S., the first inkling of a problem is when a company is audited or employees are suddenly faced with a surprisingly large tax demand. Ultimately an employee is responsible for the accuracy of their tax filing, but all typically trust their employers to ensure that their tax forms are properly filled out. It turns out many Canadian and U.S. corporations I've worked with are unaware of the tax code around cellphones. This could open the door to lawsuits like the BYOD one in California. Employees may demand that their employers reimburse them for their phone use.

Like the IRS's policy, the Canada Revenue Association's (CRA) policy for employers doesn't say not to worry about cellphones, either: The onus is on employers to provide documentation about the percentage of the device usage attributed to work, as well as the fair market value (FMV) of the device. The CRA states explicitly that "if part of the use of the cell phone or Internet service is personal, you have to include the value of the personal use in your employee's income as a taxable benefit. The value of the benefit is based on the FMV of the service, minus any amounts your employee reimburses you." The CRA is being unambiguously clear: At a minimum, the CRA expects employers to calculate the personal usage of cellphones and the associated FMV.

The CRA also says, “You, as the employer, are responsible for determining the percentage of employment use and the FMV. You have to be prepared to justify your position if we ask you to do so.”

The Canadian government is also focusing on the HST (the Canadian national sales tax) portion of operating expenses. HST is relevant for employers and their HST input tax credit (ITC). Only the percentage use of the HST that is associated with commercial (business) purposes may be claimed.

As the CEO of a company that offers a mobile cost management solution, I'm familiar with what it takes to navigate these requirements. Here are some tips for keeping your records up to date:

• Ask your employees to keep a log of business usage (calls, text messages and data). Think of smartphone usage like car mileage for a car that is used for business purposes; you need to keep a log.

• Start to keep historical records. In the U.S., authorities can ask to go back several years in an audit situation.

• Because a significant portion of smartphone expenses can come from data, find a way to indicate what usage is business versus personal. This cannot typically be done manually from your wireless bill for data, as many wireless service providers do not provide this level of detail, but you can use your wireless bill to track voice calls and text messages. To track your data usage, either use a data tracker app or use the app that comes with iOS or Android to view your data consumption per app. Just remember to note the consumption of the app before you use it for work purposes and then note your consumption after use. The difference will give you your business use.

• Find a mobile cost management solution for individual devices or corporate device fleets that can automatically work out the business portion of all your calls, text messages, wireless data and Wi-Fi usage. Today, many businesses use Telephony Expense Management (TEM) solutions such as vCom's and Valicom's and mobile cost management solutions such as my company's.

I know many businesses that have been speaking to wireless service providers for a solution to this problem, but no solution has been forthcoming.

Why Uhive’s Token is More Trusted than Facebook’s Libra

Uhive’s ultra-secure in-app token wallet

Facebook’s Libra is losing confidence fast

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Why Uhive’s Token is More Trusted than Facebook’s Libra

Uhive’s status as a new entry into the social network fray actually bodes well for its accompanying digital currency – Uhive Token. Facebook recently announced Libra, a digital currency causing controversy due to the large user base Facebook has, and the potential nefarious uses of a single currency changing (billions of) hands across the globe. Uhive however, is a new and upcoming social media platform that is learning from Facebook’s Libra and the current situation it’s facing. Large financial platforms and e-commerce such as Visa, Mastercard, Stripe and eBay have recently backed away from Libra. Uhive’s advantage is that it’s an emerging social network, building a user-base around a digital currency instead of the other way around. This means businesses, and users within Uhive will take part in actively shaping the network and the way it uses and incorporates its token.

Uhive has been built from the ground up with the incorporation of a digital currency for purchases on the network, making it a much safer option. Uhive affords the opportunity for people to learn as well as use a digital currency in a social media space safely. With a qualified team in place, Uhive will disrupt the very definition of social media as we know it.

Uhive allows a user to explore 26 different interests in what is called the “Civilized World”. Connecting with like-minded individuals who share the same interest as the user, Uhive also allows for anonymous posting and allows a user to be who they truly want to be.

Additionally, considering Uhive is powered by blockchain technology, it allows the user to make purchases, sales and trades all within the app. For example, if a user has a popular space in the top five interests, the space can be sold (or perhaps even rented) for Uhive tokens. In return, the Uhive tokens can be redeemed on exchanges for any digital or fiat currency.

The Grey World (100% anonymous presence), opens up doors for relationships of all kinds, as well as opportunities for connections, exploration, self-identification and self-expression that’s currently not possible or practical on existing social media. The Grey World offers a platform for like-minded individuals to connect in a judgment free environment, safe from scrutiny. If users want to go on a virtual date, they can purchase flowers from a verified business on Uhive, and deliver them to him or her in the real world, completing the entire transaction from within the security of the app but adding a very real and personal touch to a very private interaction.

DrugTestingCourses.com Launches New Course on Delaware Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Laws



Delaware Drug and Alcohol Workplace Testing Laws Now Available at DrugTestingCourses.com

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — DrugTestingCourses.com, an online training provider operated by Easler Education Inc., announced today that it has launched a new state law course designed to educate individuals and private employers on the relevant workplace drug and alcohol testing laws in the State of Delaware.

The course, which is entitled “Delaware Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing Laws Training," is available for enrollment on DrugTestingCourses.com and all of its e-commerce affiliate reselling partner sites immediately.

Andrew Easler, the co-founder of Easler Education Inc, indicates that “particular changes to society’s attitudes regarding Medical Marijuana have led to a massive increase in legislative changes to workplace testing laws across the country. We decided to become a source of reliable information about these changes as they approach on the horizon so that employers can make informed decisions about changes to their policy and so that employees can avoid unwittingly violating their employer’s policies.”

The new course provides private employers and interested employees in Delaware a summary of the current state law as it relates to drug and alcohol testing. The course has been designed for the benefit of both legal and non-legal professionals. In an effort to make this kind of information accessible to non-lawyers, the course is designed to avoid legalese whenever possible and to explain legal terminology when the use of the term is unavoidable.

This course will cover essential topics such as: which type of testing is allowed in Delaware, the benefits and drawbacks of implementing a testing policy including relevant insurance discounts, if applicable, and how to qualify, some of the observed dangers and pitfalls other employers have encountered through relevant case law, and the current status of state marijuana laws and their effects on the implementation of workplace testing programs.

Medical Marijuana became legal in Delaware in 2016, and many employers and employees have found themselves on the wrong side of the statute. Employers have been sued for wrongful termination, and employees have been fired for what they believed to be lawful activity under the Delaware Medical Marijuana Act. The course is expected to benefit a wide range of employers and employees, including, but not limited to:

-Business Owners
-Human Resource Professionals
-Substance Abuse Professionals
-Addiction Counselors
-Safety Officers
-Fleet Supervisors
-Site Supervisors
-Compliance Officers
-Employees of Private Businesses
-Corporate Counsel
-Employment Attorneys
-Compliance Consultants
-Other Workplace Testing Stakeholders
