Close to 100 employees were given notice on Monday morning (Credit: iStock)Ten-X Commercial, an online real estate transaction platform, laid off half its workforce after efforts to sell the company fell through.Close to 100 employees in offices in Texas, New York and California were given notice on Monday morning during a call with executives, according to people on the call and those familiar with the matter.Thomas H. Lee Partners, the private equity firm that owns Ten-X Commercial, has been trying to sell the company since the start of the year. CoStar Group had been in talks for a potential acquisition until recently, according to former Ten-X employees.Thomas H. Lee Partners declined to comment. Ten-X and CoStar did not respond to multiple requests for comment.Ten-X says that more than $50 billion in real estate transactions have been conducted through its marketplace. It was founded in 2007 as Auction.com, a residential real estate deal platform. In 2016, it launched a separate platform known as Ten-X Commercial, which provided a marketplace for commercial properties. Along the way, it received investments from multiple firms, including Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital, Stone Point and CapitalG.In 2017, Thomas H. Lee Partners purchased a majority interest in Ten-X for close to $1.6 billion. The private equity firm quickly set about separating the two products — Auction.com and Ten-X Commercial — into siloed companies. Shortly after, Ten-X Commercial cut about 10 percent of its staff in early 2018.Since the private equity firm began marketing Ten-X earlier this year, it attracted multiple suitors, including Newmark Knight Frank.

18 October 2005A partnership between the government and Business Unity South Africa to address the challenge of climate change was formed at the National Climate Change Conference in Midrand, Johannesburg on Monday.The newly formed partnership is expected to create a system for monitoring and reporting on the levels of greenhouse gas emissions in South Africa.“At the World Summit on Sustainable Development, South Africa led the way in highlighting the ‘triple bottom line’ of business – economic, social, and environmental concerns,” said Business Unity SA (Busa) President Patrice Motsepe.“This agreement gives further content to that approach. Busa understands the importance of economic growth that does not mortgage our future for the sake of short-term profit, and we will work with government to ensure that we address the challenges of climate change together.”The mining magnate also referred to the increasing number of South African companies that were exploring investment opportunities presented by the Clean Development Mechanism.Environmental Affairs Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk said the government hoped to extend the partnership with business to other interventions, “especially those which will help our rural and agricultural communities adapt to the impacts of climate change through the diversification of the rural economy.”Investment in scienceScience Minister Mosibudi Mangena opened the science session of the conference with calls for greater investment in the science of climate change and African research and development.Stating alternatives for energy use, Mangena said nuclear power was one of the options, alongside wind and solar technologies.“Climate change research requires global observation of numerous characteristics of the earth system over a long period of time,” the minister said.“Scientists need to ensure that reliable data is collected by a whole suite of observing systems – from satellite to surface stations to ocean buoys operated by various countries and agencies.”Source: BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
South Africa’s position on the 2014 Ibrahim Index of African Governance improved from fifth to fourth thanks to improvements in the economy and infrastructure development. (Image: Brand South Africa)• Research reveals Kenyan, Nigerian views of South Africa• Buy local to build South Africa’s economy• Agoa open up opportunities for Africa’s female entrepreneurs• Stalled on the Trans-Africa Highway• G20: Africa’s growth can stabilise the world economyShamin ChibbaSouth Africa’s economy is on the mend, if the 2014 Ibrahim Index of African Governance is anything to go by.The country’s level of sustainable economic opportunity score improved to 71.9 points out of 100, up more than three points on the previous year. Out of 52 African countries surveyed, South Africa came out second in this particular category, behind Mauritius, which has 79.7 points.The sustainable economic opportunity category is divided into four sub-categories: public management, business environment, infrastructure, and rural sector. These analyse 31 features that make up a country’s economy, such as fiscal policy, level of bureaucracy, access to water for low income and rural populations, and road, rail and air transport.The 2014 Ibrahim Index, published on Monday, 29 September, ranks a country’s overall governance within the African context. It is based not only on economic opportunity but also on safety and rule of law, participation and human rights, and human development. Taking all these categories into account, South Africa’s overall position also improved, from fifth in 2013 to fourth this year.The index is named after billionaire Sudanese-British mobile communications mogul Mo Ibrahim. He established the Mo Ibrahim Foundation in 2006, and created the index the following year . Sudanese-British mobile communications mogul, Mo Ibrahim, warned major African states like South Africa to remain vigilant and avoid complacency. (Image: Mo Ibrahim Foundation) Infrastructure development boostedBrand South Africa chief executive Miller Matola was encouraged by this year’s results, particularly regarding the improvements the country has made in infrastructure development. “Good infrastructure is attractive to investors and makes it easier to conduct business more efficiently and effectively,” he pointed out.In the index, South Africa’s infrastructure development score shot up from 67.5 in 2013 to 77.1 this year. The country now ranks third in this category behind the Seychelles and Mauritius. This comes after the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Institute of Management Development (IMD) also announced South Africa’s improvement in infrastructure development. In the WEF’s Global Competitiveness Report for 2014-2015, the country moved up from 66 to 60 out of 144 countries. In the IMD’s 2014 World Competitiveness Yearbook, South Africa improved by three places from last year to 55.Despite these advances, Matola was concerned by the drop in rule and safety – from seventh in 2013 to eighth this year – and in participation and human rights – from third last year to fourth. “These issues impact equally on our competitiveness and ability to attract inward flows of investment,” he said. African governance improvement too slow – IbrahimWriting for the Institute for Security Studies weekly online newsletter, Independent Newspapers’ foreign editor, Peter Fabricius, said the Ibrahim Index suggested overall governance in Africa was slowing down.According to the index, governance on the continent rose by just 0.9 points out of 100 over the last five years, whereas before 2009 it improved by 1.2 points. “African governance as a whole has improved in some ways and deteriorated in others, resulting in this slight net improvement,” wrote Fabricius.For Ibrahim, Africa was still progressing but “the story is complex and doesn’t fit the stereotypes”. He also warned that the continent should remain vigilant, avoid complacency and adopt Afro-realism as a stance instead of Afro-pessimism or the current Africa Rising narrative.“More pertinently perhaps,” wrote Fabricius, “the index suggests that Africa still has a long way to go, and has to move much faster, if it is to overcome its chronic problems of poverty, underdevelopment and insecurity.”
Hamilton has won three times at Suzuka, twice previously for Mercedes in 2014 and 2015 – both years he went on to take the world championship. But he can expect the Ferrari to be more competitive in race pace as it has been all season and Bottas’s five-place penalty, for using a replacement gearbox, means Vettel will be on the front row. But as Hamilton proved at Spa, once he has the advantage into the first corner, wresting the lead from him can be an enormously difficult task. “Our car is quite strong in qualifying trim but in the race maybe we are a step back, not quite as good,” he said. “But it is hard, if not impossible, to overtake here so we have put ourselves in the best position.”Both the championship contenders must be wary of the charging Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, who will be immediately behind them, and for Hamilton, for all that he enjoys this momentous pole, he knows it is only half the job done. Should he convert it to a win, however, he will have left Vettel with an absolute mountain to climb in the title fight.Kimi Raikkonen finished in sixth but has a five-pace grid penalty for replacing his gearbox after the damage he sustained going off at the second Degner during final practice on Saturday morning. The Force India’s of Esteban Ocon and Sergio Pérez were in seventh and eighth and Felipe Massa’s Williams was in ninth.McLaren’s Fernando Alonso did well to put his car into 10th place but Honda had no good news for the fans at their home race, he receives a 35-place grid penalty for taking a range of new powerunit components. McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne was in 11th, with Renault’s Nico Hülkenberg in 12th and the Haas of Kevin Magnussen in 13th.

Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly was in 17th and the Williams of Lance Stroll in 18th, while the stewards did not find Pérez to be at fault for impeding the Canadian on his final hot lap and took no further action against the Mexican.

Finally, for the first time in a decade of racing, he has secured the top spot at one of Formula One’s most demanding circuits. Over a career that has already featured three world championships and, at this year’s Italian Grand Prix, overtaking Michael Schumacher’s record with a 69th pole position – a total he has now extended to 71 – this was a moment Hamilton clearly savoured.He was untouchable over the 3.6‑mile circuit, fastest across all three sessions and a country mile ahead of his competitors. His Mercedes team‑mate Valtteri Bottas was three‑tenths slower to be second fastest. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who Hamilton leads by 34 points in the drivers’ standings, will start second because of a grid penalty for Bottas, but the German could manage only third, four-tenths down on the pole time, an age at Suzuka. Hamilton showed breathtaking precision and skill at a breakneck pace. His time of 1min 27.319sec smashed the lap record of 1.28.954, set by Schumacher in 2006, by almost 1.7sec.“It has been incredible to come here with this car,” Hamilton said. “This track has always been one of – if not the – greatest circuit and with this car it is just mind-blowing. I wish you could feel what we feel. It has always been one of the craziest roller-coaster rides but with the downforce we now have, three seconds faster than we have been before, it is insane, the speed.” … we have a small favour to ask.

Here, then, was a driver who had found an almost perfect harmony with his car, something that has been distinctly lacking at some points this season. The team has described the Mercedes as a diva and earlier this weekend, after difficulties at the last two rounds in Singapore and Malaysia, Hamilton had used the word stubborn. However, there was no trace of recalcitrance in the cooler temperatures of Suzuka and driver and car were clearly on song. “It is definitely great when she comes together on days like that,” he said. “It is important because if we were on the back foot here it wouldn’t be a great position to be in. Let’s hope she’s not stubborn tomorrow.“Qualifying for me is probably the most enjoyable part of the weekend so being able to put together laps like today, it is the one you wait for all weekend. Q3, runs one and two, are really what motor sport is all about – the ultimate performance from myself but also the car.”
