dhita yudha

Brooks Brothers Inc. announced Thursday it was seeking a bankruptcy court’s permission to enter an asset purchase deal with Sparc Group LLC, a joint venture between the Barneys and Nautica brands owner Authentic Brands Group LLC and mall operator Simon Property Group Inc (NYSE: SPG).

What Happened

Sparc is offering to buy all of the beleaguered retailer’s worldwide business operations for $305 billion and will continue to operate 125 of Brooks Brother’s retail locations.

A United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware is due to consider the stalking horse bid — a reference to an initial-bid on assets of a bankrupt company — as well as the bidding procedures on August 3.

The deadline for competing offers has been set for August 5 and the hearing to approve the sale would take place on August 11, 2020.

Brooks Brothers, a two-hundred-year-old retailer, commenced Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings earlier

Tech adapts to fit new business needs

dhita yudha

When employees at the 3D bioprinting company Cellink went back to the office Monday after nearly five months, they were required to clip a small piece of Bluetooth technology onto their clothes before walking through the office’s front doors.

The devices, made by the Austrian company Safedi, are intended to make sure people are socially distancing in the office. A green light shines when people are at least six feet apart.

A red light flashes and the device emits a noise when people get too close.

“Safedi has already shown its value in just one day, especially when it’s time for those coffee breaks,” Cellink CEO Erik Gatenholm said.

The devices are one example of the varied and sometimes bizarre tech-infused solutions businesses are using in an effort to get their employees back to work and offer their customers a safe environment amid the ongoing outbreaks of the coronavirus in

Theodore Klein, who made model railroaders’ fantasies into a reality, dies

dhita yudha

Theodore Klein, who as proprietor of M.B. Klein Inc., a major supplier of model railroad equipment and supplies, helped turned hobbyists’ fantasy railroads into a reality of rolling trains, cities and country villages, died Sunday of undetermined causes at his home on Upper Park Heights Avenue in Baltimore. He was 84.

To every model railroader, young or old, who ever dreamed of building a miniature version of the Baltimore & Ohio, Pennsylvania, Atlantic Coast Line, New Haven, Reading Co. or any other railroad in the basement or attic of their home, there was only one place to go to make it a reality, and that was M.B. Klein Inc. at North Gay and Saratoga streets.

Theodore Klein, son of Morris Benjamin Klein, founder of M.B. Klein Inc., and his wife, Sarah Miller Klein, a homemaker, was born and raised in Northwest Baltimore.

Mr. Klein dropped out of Forest Park High

Kayak CEO Hints Company May Get Into the Hotel Business

dhita yudha

There’s been speculation over the years about online travel companies getting into the hotel business, and Kayak CEO Steve Hafner teased as much during an interview on Thursday.

Hafner, who heads Booking Holdings brands Kayak and OpenTable, dropped the hint during a pre-recorded interview for Travel’s Path Forward: Online Travel, when discussing the company’s product roadmap during the Covid-19 hiatus.

Without providing much detail, Hafner teased an announcement about Kayak getting into the hotel business in some form beyond its traditional hotel referral and booking services.

“Soon we are going to announce our first forays into the hotel business,” Hafner said.

Asked whether we would see Kayak-branded hotels, Hafner said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if you did. Put it that way.”

He added another tidbit when discussing OpenTable and loyalty programs.

Later in the interview, Hafner discussed the integration of OpenTable’s dining services with sister company Booking.com, and he said

Virus Resurgence Sends A Clear Message To Small Businesses That The Future Remains Uncertain

dhita yudha

Small business owners are contending with some of the most trying economic conditions in recent memory. Suppliers are seeing their orders limited by a hobbled supply chain, shops and retailers are facing lower sales from a financially insecure client base and restaurants and bars are being forced to weigh the needs of their staff against the lower capacity imposed by socially-distanced dining areas.

But the most trying aspect of running a small business in the time of a pandemic is the reality that these conditions may continue for months on end. The U.S. and many other countries are already seeing a resurgence of infections and hospitalizations after just a few weeks of reopening measures.

Small Business Strife

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a halt to many business owners’ innate hopes for future growth. A recent article from William Dunkelberg, the Chief Economist for the National Federation of Independent Business, describes

How to Make Trump’s Coronavirus Briefings Actually Good

dhita yudha

(Bloomberg Opinion) — One of the greatest outrages in the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic has been the way the government has failed to offer the people useful, trustworthy information. That’s still true, even as President Donald Trump has restarted his daily Covid-19 briefings.

While some outlets have praised his more somber tone, the problem with the previous briefings was not a lack of pessimism and gloom.

The problem was that the president offered almost no usable information about the risks Americans faced, what was being done with our tax dollars to fight back, or an honest evaluation of the various efforts on the part of the pharmaceutical industry.

He has another chance now. But first, he should stop hogging the microphone. The new briefings have featured the president standing alone. What we need is not just more of Anthony Fauci, a bright spot from the earlier briefings, but

Combative TikTok Founder Races to Save App Before Trump Ban

dhita yudha

(Bloomberg) — Zhang Yiming is the little-known Chinese entrepreneur who built TikTok into one of the most promising franchises on the internet. Now the brainy, combative founder is under pressure to save the business from Trump administration threats.

Venture investors in TikTok parent ByteDance Ltd. have approached Zhang with a range of proposals to address U.S. concerns that the short-video app is a security threat, according to people familiar with the matter. They include selling a majority stake in TikTok to American interests, perhaps strategic investors or the venture firms themselves, said the people, asking not to be identified because the talks are private.

Zhang, who controls the company, has so far resisted. He’s tried building up TikTok’s operations in the U.S., hiring an American chief executive officer and reassuring regulators that user data will not be shared outside the country. TikTok has also stepped up its lobbying in Washington,

Flipkart buys parent Walmart’s Indian wholesale business

dhita yudha

BENGALURU (Reuters) – India’s Flipkart said on Thursday it had acquired parent Walmart Inc’s <WMT.N> local cash-and-carry business, as the e-commerce firm strengthens its wholesale offerings to compete better with Amazon.com Inc <AMZN.O>.

The deal will allow Flipkart to launch a digital marketplace called Flipkart Wholesale next month, the Bengaluru-headquartered firm said, without disclosing any financial details of the deal.

Walmart, which has been running Best Price wholesale cash-and-carry stores in India since 2009, bought a controlling stake in Flipkart in 2018 for $16 billion.

The brand has 28 wholesale stores, two fulfilment centers and more than 1.5 million members, largely comprising mom-and-pop stores, but Walmart has not been able to make money from this business.

The Flipkart deal, which local daily Economic Times had said https://tech.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/internet/walmarts-cash-and-carry-biz-may-go-to-flipkart/73570755 was in the offing in January, comes as e-commerce players including Amazon look to woo India’s mom-and-pop stores that are considered the backbone
