"The OECD has no problem with our 12.5pc rate", says Feargal O'Rourke, head of PwC's tax services practice. "Companies will have to locate their activities where their profits are. I believe tax havens will be out of business. The glass is three-quarters full"
"It bases that "illustrative price" on a combination of "illustrative earnings," "targeted salad earnings," and "illustrative organic growth," at a rate which is well above the historical growth rate, and then multiplies that number by trading multiples that are substantially in excess of the figures used by Chiquita and Fyffes' own financial advisors" Cutrale-Safra added
What you say is absolutely true, don get me wrong. We just can expect "setting the bar higher than what it currently set at" to be a reasonable solution to the problem. It admirable, and it might even work inin the long run...
"We rate CHIQUITA BRANDS INTL INC (CQB) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stockstock price during the past year and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, generally higher debt management risk and poor profit margins."
