Bavarian state pension fund to sue VW over emissions scandal

first_imgBavaria’s civil service pension fund is to file a lawsuit against Volkswagen (VW), according to the German state’s finance ministry.A spokeswoman for the ministry confirmed to IPE its intention to file the suit on behalf of the Bayerische Pensionsfonds, set up after state pension reserves set aside since 1999 were combined.The fund, worth €2.1bn at the end of 2014 and being used to pre-fund the state’s civil service liabilities from 2023, will be suing VW for damages of €700,000.However, the ministry spokeswoman took pains to emphasise that the Pensionsfonds had not made an actual loss, as it intended to continue holding its VW stake.  She also acknowledged that even the firm’s current stock price was higher than that paid by the Pensionsfonds when the shares were acquired.The lawsuit comes after the German car manufacturer was embroiled in an scandal over its use of so-called deceit devices to mask the true emissions of its cars.The scandal saw VW’s share price drop from €162.40 to as low as €92.36 at the beginning of October, and has already seen several of the world’s largest asset owners, including the Norwegian sovereign fund and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, throw their support behind a class action lawsuit.But the suit by the Bayerische Pensionsfonds, to be filed at the Braunschweig District Court, will not be part of the same class action suit brought by other institutional investors. The significantly larger Bayerische Versorgungskammer, which manages €66bn in pension assets, including those for members of Bavaria’s state parliament, told IPE it did not intend to file a suit against VW.last_img read more

Coronavirus: EPL clubs ‘to play remaining 92 games behind closed doors’

first_imgPremier League clubs have reportedly hatched a plan to save the season amid the coronavirus pandemic – by playing all remaining games behind closed doors and at neutral venues. All games would also be shown live on TV in a bid to provide fans with their football fix and appease broadcasters who have paid huge sums to show Premier League football. Clubs are to present their plan for fulfilling all remaining games at Thursday’s Premier League meeting At Tuesday’s UEFA summit, Europe’s leagues were given until June 30 to complete their fixtures, with the European Championship finals pushed back until next year to accommodate domestic football. But Premier League clubs fear they still not will not be able to fulfil their fixtures in time, as they have more still to play than in other European leagues and uncertainty still looms over when games will be able to go ahead. League bosses are also concerned about a potential breach of the division’s £3bn television contract if the season is not completed. Now a group of Premier League clubs has come up with a radical plan to ensure all fixtures can be played, according to The Sun. The plan – which the publication says will be put before Thursday’s Premier League meeting – would see all 92 remaining matches played behind closed doors, with all games broadcast live on television. Games would be played at a minimal number of venues to keep down the number of police and medical staff needed, and they would most likely be played around the Midlands to ensure as little travel as possible. Venues could stage more than one game per day, with clubs potentially having to play every three days in order to fulfil all their fixtures. The rational behind matches being played at neutral venues would be to prevent home fans from turning up outside the stadium, as happened at the Champions League clash between Paris-Saint Germain and Borussia Dortmund last week. Paris Saint-Germain fans turned up at the stadium for last week’s Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund, which was played behind closed doors Liverpool need to win just two more games to be confirmed as champions for the first time in 30 years – but there are also the European places and relegation to be sorted out, as well as promotion from the Championship. Most Premier League teams have nine games remaining, but Manchester City, Sheffield United, Arsenal and Aston Villa each have 10 left to play. There are also FA Cup matches to play, as well as the remainder of the Champions League and Europa League competitions.
