Pacific Rubiales Executives Said to Plan Share Purchase – Bloomberg
Assurant Inc. also declined to discuss its relationship with Nationstar. The insurer said it complies with the federal government’s new rules against affiliate commissions but “may pay commissions to unaffiliated agents in compliance with laws and regulations for work performed.” In court, however, Assurant and Nationstar have not defended their arrangements. Earlier this month, the companies reached a deal to settle a class-action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida that alleged Harwood exists solely to “funnel profits ” to Nationstar at borrowers’ expense. If Nationstars’ attempts to sell Harwood are successful, the deal would render the agency immune from bans on commissions much as a similar agency owned by the country’s largest subprime mortgage servicer already is. That servicer, Ocwen Financial Corp, oversees more than one-quarter of the country’s outstanding subprime loans, according to data from trade publication Inside Mortgage Finance. Last March, Ocwen sold off a force-placed insurance affiliate called Beltline Road Insurance Agency as part of an $86 million deal with Altisource, a company spun out Ocwen in 2008, led by former Ocwen executives and partially owned by Ocwen’s founder. The deal closed the same month that the Federal Housing Finance Agency formally proposed banning commissions and New York reached a legal accord with Assurant, OCwen’s principal force-placed insurer, banning payments to affiliates like Beltline. By selling the company to Altisource, however, Ocwen got cash upfront and handed the lucrative business of collecting commissions to Altisource, a company characterized in financial filings as a related party. In a statement to the Associated Press, Ocwen noted that it had only owned the insurance agency for a short period after acquiring it along with the assets of a smaller mortgage servicer.

I dream about it every minute, and I think about it every moment, said Susan Tacherra, the director and head teacher. The preschool expects the mobile classroom to be delivered to the campus in mid-August and the school year will begin roughly a month later. The $30,000 bridge loan from a Bolinas donor was the only way we could have possibly moved on, Ms. Tacherra said. Were very thankful. The classroom will be installed on a three-year contract, the location slightly different than planned due to a French drain that butted too close to the original footprint to jive with county regulations. A playground will be developed in phases. The main thing we can all agree on is that all children deserve a great education and great care on a great site. The details will be worked out, Ms. Tacherra said. Once the classroom is installed and local toddlers are learning once again, the preschool will ramp up its fundraising efforts to repay their loans.

I’ve got a lot of friends who are West Ham fans and I know how good the supporters are here. “You get a great atmosphere here and the fans are great, so I just can’t wait to get a West Ham shirt on and get on the pitch and play.” Jenkinson, who played for Finland at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level before switching to the Three Lions, was swayed by the Hammers’ ambition to progress. “To be honest, that was a big swing in this for me, seeing this club is going in the right direction,” he explained. “Obviously the (Olympic) stadium plans are only a couple of years away and that’s going to improve this club massively. We’ve signed six players and they are top players as well.

He said GM needed to make more models available as loaners for those whose cars are being recalled. As part of its small-car ignition switch recall, GM is offering free loaners to owners. But dealers have run short of cars for the program and have been forced to rely on rental car companies, which can loan out cars from competing brands. GM has issued more than 83,000 loaner cars since the recalls started in February. But CEO Mary Barra said last week that it had fixed about 550,000 of the small cars, so the need for loaners was waning. The automaker won’t say how many vehicles were purchased by dealers in June. After about two months, the loaners are resold as used cars because of the miles on them, but buyers get low-interest financing and other incentives offered to new-car buyers, said the dealers, most of whom asked not to be identified for fear of reprisals from the company. “There was a heavy push on an incentive program that increased sales,” one dealer said. “If they don’t have the volume they want, they’ll come out to the dealers.” GM’s U.S. sales rose 2.5 percent in the first half of the year, lagging the overall market’s 4.3 percent gain.
