Following the transaction, which is subject to obtaining certain regulatory approvals, the Kwande-Thesele consortium will own a 19.9% share, a new employee stock ownership plan will own 5.1%, and the remainder will remain owned by KBR. The value of the deal was not disclosed. “We are proud to partner with Kwande-Thesele on this important venture,’ said KBR South Africa MD Themba Mabuza. “We are optimistic that the enhancement of our [BEE] rating through this equity sale will yield more projects for KBR in the competitive South African environment, and we look forward to further solidifying our portfolio in the region.” According to the statement, direct equity ownership by the Kwande-Thesele Consortium and the formation of the employee stock ownership plan will enhance KBR SA’s empowerment rating, making KBR the leading engineering and construction contractor in South Africa in this regard, with an anticipated BEE rating at Level 4 or better. Proven track record Increased employee retention is another anticipated benefit of the transaction, as the employee stock ownership plan aims to give employees a direct stake in the success of KBR SA. 6 October 2010 US-based engineering and construction firm Kellogg Brown and Root has unveiled a black economic empowerment (BEE) deal under which an empowered consortium and company employees will acquire a stake of just over 25% in its South African subsidiary. The transaction also enables KBR SA to bring KBR’s broad range of high quality engineering, procurement and construction capabilities to more customers in the region. “This sale reaffirms KBR’s and KBR South Africa’s long-term commitment to clients in South Africa,” KBR Operations executive Dennis Calton said in a statement last month. “With some of the strongest [BEE] credentials in the industry, KBR looks forward to expanding our offerings in the region to include minerals and mining, power, pulp and paper, and infrastructure and government opportunities, while maintaining a leading position in the hydrocarbons and chemicals market.” Kwande-Thesele is a consortium consisting of established South African companies and individuals that have a proven track record in their areas of business, and includes broad-based participation by women organisations.

Iran boss Carlos Queiroz is furious that Cristiano Ronaldo managed to escape a red card following a VAR review of an incident that saw him elbow defender Morteza Pouraliganji in the face in their 1-1 draw against PortugalThe Real Madrid forward had a rather eventful game on Monday and was awarded a penalty after going down in a challenge from Iran’s Saeid Ezatolahi.The penalty was initially waived off before the referee awarded Portugal the spot-kick after reviewing the incident through VAR.However, Ronaldo then surprisingly missed the penalty and later was under the spotlight once more.The 33-year-old attempted to get in front of Morteza Pouraliganji and appeared to hit the defender in the face with a flailing arm. But, after a long review with VAR, the referee decided to only punish Ronaldo with a yellow card.But Queiroz insisted Ronaldo should have been sent-off and suggested that there was preferential treatment for the likes of the Portugal captain and Lionel Messi.“I don’t want to talk too much, it’s about my country and a player. I know it’ll be a war against me,” said Queiroz, according to NDTV.“But the reality is you stopped the game for VAR, there is an elbow. An elbow is a red card in the rules. In the rules, it doesn’t say if it is (Lionel) Messi or Ronaldo…”Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.He added: “We accepted human mistakes before, that was part of the game. Players make mistakes, coaches make mistakes and referees make mistakes,”“But now you have one system that cost a fortune. It’s high-tech with five, six people inside and what happens? Nobody takes responsibilities.“We need to be like rugby. When there is a decision by VAR I need to know what the referee is saying to them, people need to know what is going on.”“So in my opinion, Mr. Infantino and FIFA, everybody agreed that VAR is not going well,” he added.“That’s the reality, there’s a lot of complaints.”Ricardo Quaresma scored Portugal’s only goal of the game before a late Karim Ansarifard penalty levelled the score and denied Fernando Santos’ side the chance to top Group B.Portugal will now face Group A winners Uruguay in the Round of 16 in Sochi on Saturday.

He offers something different to the other players.“It is important for our squad to have this player and I am happy about his performance.“For his first start in the Premier League, he did a lot of good things. In the battles, too, and his defensive work. All good things to continue to improve and give his best for the future.“I am happy about his listening, about his consistency in the game.
