• M&A; Premiums Hit Highest Multiple Since 2007 Despite Slowdown

    The market for mergers and acquisitions may have slowed from 2015’s records, but that doesn’t mean those buyers that are willing to do deals can get a bargain. Deal premiums have reached the highest multiple in at least a decade this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Companies paid a median of 11.07 times their target’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization through June 27 to make acquisitions, the data show. That’s the most since at least 20

  • This VC firm wrote a $125,000 check over breakfast to Twilio — now it owns a $500 million stake in the company

    The best investors often know how to spot the hidden gems. For Silicon Valley-based Bessemer Ventures, communications-software maker Twilio goes down as one of its early bets that turned out to be a home run. In fact, Bessemer liked Twilio so much that it wrote a $125,000 check for its seed investment on the spot over breakfast. Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson didn't end up cashing that check, but eventually took the money a few weeks later when Bessemer wired it in. "We wanted t

  • Canada Oil Output Poised to Fall for First Time in 7 Years

    Canadian oil output is forecast to decline this year for the first time since 2009 after a wildfire in northern Alberta curtailed more than one million barrels a day for a month and low commodity prices hit producers. Total Canadian oil output will drop to 3.82 million barrels a day in 2016, less than the 3.85 million barrels a day produced last year, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers said in its annual forecast released Thursday. In 2017, production will rise to more than 4 million barrels a d

  • Oil prices plunge 5 percent as Britain votes to leave EU

    Oil prices settled 5 percent lower on Friday after Britain's vote to leave the European Union spurred massive risk aversion and a rally in safe havens like the U.S. dollar that threatened to cut short a three-month-long recovery in global oil markets. Financial markets have been worried for months about what a British exit from the European Union, dubbed widely as 'Brexit,' would mean for Europe's future, but were clearly not fully factoring in the risk of a 'leave' vote. The dolla

  • First CRISPR Clinical Trial in Humans Is Approved by Federal Regulators

    Companies are betting a “liquid biopsy” can change cancer testing. If you thought that next-gen blood-testing technology had hit a wall because of the woes of Elizabeth Holmes and her hobbled unicorn Theranos, you’d be wrong. A growing number of biotech and pharmaceutical companies are ramping up efforts to create smarter, more effective blood diagnostics. This spring, California-based Freenome got a multimillion-dollar cash infusion from Andreessen Horowitz. Pharma g

  • Global oil demand shows no sign of peaking: Kemp

    “Peak oil demand” has become a fashionable concept among climate campaigners but the evidence suggests oil consumption is growing at the fastest rate for a decade and shows no sign of letting up. Global oil consumption increased by nearly 1.9 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2015, the largest annual increase since 2004, apart from the post-crisis bounce recorded in 2010. Most forecasters predict consumption will grow by another 1.5 million bpd in 2016 and a similar amount in 2017, which would
