Í Viðskiptablaðinu var greint frá breytingum á eignarhaldi lands í Skorradal en í sumum tilvikum munu menn vera farnir að krefjast allt að 10 milljóna króna fyrir hektarann. Tíð eigendaskipti á landi hafa haft þar áhrif. Jörðin Dagverðarnes er dæmigerð fyrir það en Bjarni Ásgeir Jónsson, fyrrverandi forstjóri og aðaleigandi kjúklingabúsins Reykjagarðs, eignaðist jörðina fyrir 90 milljónir króna fyrir nokkrum misserum. Jörðin ávaxtaðist vel í eigu hans og keypti Arngrímur Hermannsson, sem í eina tíð rak ferðaþjónustufyrirtækið Addís, og kona hans, Anna Hallgrímsdóttir, jörðina fyrir skömmu á 320 milljónir króna að því er heimildir segja. Í millitíðinni hafði Bjarni Ásgeir selt nokkra parta út úr jörðinni og ávaxtað vel. Sama má segja um jörðina Hvamm sem Kristján Benediktsson keypti og seldi Jóhanni Sigurðssyni, kenndum við Hreinkaup. Jóhann keypti upp ýmsa parta meðal annars þriðjung jarðarinnar af Kára Stefánssyni, forstjóra Íslenskrar erfðagreiningar, og borgaði fyrir það 24 milljónir króna. Í Skorradalnum segja menn að sá partur hafi ávaxtast betur en bréf í deCODE því Jóhann seldi skikann á 120 milljónir ári seinna. Þá munu eigendur Vatnsenda og Litlu-Drageyrar hafa fengið óformleg tilboð um að selja jarðir sínar og í seinna tilfellinu jafnvel rætt um milljarðatilboð. Því segja gárungarnir að dýr myndi Skorradalur allur.


 

Ekkert gengur hjá eigendum Morgunblaðsins að finna nýjan framkvæmdastjóra í stað Hallgríms Geirssonar sem boðaði brottför sína í upphafi árs. Þykir flestum ljóst að ekki séu teknar mikilvægar ákvarðanir varðandi reksturinn á meðan. Undanfarið hafa allmargir starfsmenn verið að hætta, sumir vegna aldurs og er það tengt þeim tímamótum að blaðið hefur nú flutt starfsemi sína upp í Hádegismóa. Þar á meðal er Örn Jóhannsson, skrifstofustjóri blaðsins og sá sem hefur stýrt tæknimálum þess. Sömuleiðis mun Margrét Sigurðardóttir, markaðsstjóri blaðsins, vera hætt störfum. Flestum þykir ljóst að til tíðinda muni draga hjá Morgunblaðinu með haustinu.


 

US SUMMARY: Investors Turn Defensive


 

Það eru núna um það bil tvö ár síðan KB banki hóf framleiðslu svínakjöts. Það kom reyndar ekki til af góðu en Braut, dótturfélag KB banka, keypti rekstur svínabúsins að Þórustöðum af þrotabúinu um mitt ár 2004. Braut rekur að auki svínabúið í Brautarholti en það fyrirtæki varð gjaldþrota í janúar 2004 en KB banki erfði málið frá Búnaðarbankanum. Málin fóru í mikla flækju þegar kom í ljós að Brautarholt var óðalsjörð og veðtökur því ekki marktækar. Má segja að málið hafi verið í ákveðinni sjálfheldu síðan en fyrrverandi eigendur Brautarholtsbúsins hafa séð um rekstur þess fyrir KB banka -- sem framleiðir beikon á fullu.

Hamburg, Germany | Oxford, UK - Evotec AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Prime Standard, ISIN: DE 000 566480 9, WKN 566480) today reported preliminary results of the second quarter 2006. Group revenues grew 2% over Q2 2005, to EUR 18.8 million (Q2 2005: EUR 18.4 million). The group net result improved markedly by over 90% to approximately EUR -1 million, compared to EUR -23.4 million in the same quarter last year. This improvement is the result of two extraordinary effects: (i) charges from amortisation of intangible assets and impairment of goodwill reduced by more than EUR 20 million compared to Q2 2005, as 2005 included acquisition related goodwill impairment of Evotec Neurosciences (EUR 18.5 million) and regular amortisation charges from Evotec's acquisition of Oxford Asymmetry International in the year 2000 (EUR 2.4 million), and (ii) total non-operating result improved to approximately EUR 6.5 million (Q2 2005: EUR -1.5 million), due to a profit from the sale of intellectual property assets by Evotec Technologies to Olympus as well as better results from currency hedging. R&D spend for Evotec's proprietary drug development projects increased as planned.


 

Kemira will invest EUR 10 Million in formic acid production in Oulu, Finland. Kemira's total production capacity will be increased by 25.000 t/a to over 100.000 t/a. The expansion will be done in the present formic acid units and involves technological improvements and energy savings. The new capacity will come on-stream step-wise by the end of 2007.

Skúbb Blaðsins um meint svik KB banka gagnvart Þorstein Ingasyni þótti ekki mjög sterk innkoma í heim viðskipta. Fyrir utan að málið er svo gamalt er óljóst hvað raunverulega hefur gerst. Eins og allir vita getur hver sem er kært hvern sem er fyrir hvað sem er. Það þýðir þó ekki að rannsókn hefjist á málinu. Á því virðast starfsmenn Blaðsins hafa flaskað. Við látum fylgja hér með yfirlýsingu bankans sem þýðir það að Blaðið þarf að gera betur til að réttlæta birtinguna: Yfirlýsing KB banka er svona:


 

Undanfarið hefur streymt mikill fjöldi tilkynninga frá tölvufyrirtækinu TM Software. Ekki hafa þó borist neinar spurnir af afkomu félagsins en aðalfundur þess var haldinn fyrir skömmu. Urðu menn að skilja eftir ársskýrsluna við útgöngu. Samkvæmt bæjarrómnum hagnaðist félagið um 300 milljónir króna á síðasta ári en það fylgir sögunni að stærsti hlutinn af því sé söluhagnaður eftir söluna á Libra bankakerfinu sem KB banki lét TM selja samfara því að bankinn vildi að sænskt félag tæki við þeim rekstri.


 

Það hefur ekki farið fram hjá neinum að erfitt er að draga saman fé til nokkurra framkvæmda á Íslandi í dag. Bankarnir halda að sér höndum og sama má segja um fjárfesta. Mörgum gengur því illa að fá áhættufjármagn til liðs við sig og það hafa stofnendur einkahlutafélagsins Golf ehf. sem hyggst byggja golfvöll við Þorlákshöfn reynt. Meðal stofnenda eru Margeir Vilhjálmsson og Páll Ketilsson og voru þeir búnir að fá stórgolfarann Nick Faldo til að hanna völlinn. Ekki er ljóst hvort dráttur verður á þessum plönum en Golf ehf. hefur fengið úthlutað um 300 hekturum undir golfvöll við Þorlákshöfn.

Altogether they have sold 230 records, 25 t-shirts and played on 83 concerts that mostly are held in small isolated fishing villages around Iceland," said Kjartansson.
