With the tsunami of money, vets must find a way to sell their practices to secure their retirement. For some, that means selling to another vet. Increasingly, veterinary practices are being sold to private equity firms, although many vets fear this means their practice is more focused on making money than helping pets and pets. their owners.

One option worth considering is employee stock ownership. Two companies, 1st Pet Veterinary Services – a 300-employee, 3-site veterinary practice based in Chandler, Arizona – and a startup, Galaxy Vets, have found this approach to be the optimal solution.

For employees or anyone else, a key consideration when selling a veterinary practice is whether your state has corporate practice of medicine (CPOM) laws, which most states, but not all have. These laws are intended to prohibit the ownership of a medical practice by non-professionals. In recent years, however, private equity has increasingly bought up medical practices by creating management service organizations (MSOs), companies that take on all the operational tasks of a practice as a separate company contracting with the medical office. In states with strict CPOM laws the MSO cannot hire doctors, in other states they can. In “weak” CPOM states, the MSO can also make a variety of other business decisions, while in strong states, physicians must have much more control. There are also different rules on cost allocation. These laws mean that sales to employees other than veterinarians must be made through an MSO.

1st veterinary centers for companion animals

Randy Spencer, DVM, the former owner of 1st Pet Veterinary Centers, didn’t have to worry about CPOM issues because Arizona doesn’t have those rules. His focus was on inheritance. “We’ve created a great caring culture and I didn’t want to lose that to a big company, I also wanted to reward those who helped grow this practice and provide a good retirement opportunity for long-term employees.”

Spender used an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) to make the sale. An ESOP is a kind of retirement plan, similar in some ways to a 401(k) plan. 1st Pet established an employee stock ownership trust to acquire stock for employees. The company funds the trust from its future tax-deductible profits. The company can contribute cash to the stock purchase plan over time or it can ask the trust to borrow money, with the company repaying it. Employees do not buy shares. The company can deduct the cost of buying the stock, the seller can defer the capital gains tax on the sale by reinvesting in other securities, and if the company is a 100% ESOP, like 1stPet, she pays no taxes.

ESOPs include most or all employees in the plan. They have substantial set-up costs and only make sense for companies with at least 20 or more employees. Since the trust is the legal owner, in a state governed by CPOM laws, the ESOP trust must own shares through an MSO. Details of the SOPs can be found on the website of the non-profit organization, the National Center for Employee Ownership.

A new venture to acquire veterinary practices in an employee-owned company could provide a pioneering model for employee share ownership growth. Galaxy Vets is looking to buy veterinary practices, with veterinary owners getting 50% of the sale price as an equity stake in Galaxy Vets’ parent company. An MSO will hire the doctors. Individual firms will be grouped under a parent company. Meanwhile, Galaxy Vets will create an ESOP for all employees of the parent company’s practice, with a target of 40% ownership and an additional 35% held by veterinarians, managers and veterinarians who sell to Galaxy. The rest will be held by investors. Galaxy already has a number of investors, including the founder, providing initial capital.

Galaxy aims to purchase 10-20 practices in a contiguous geographic area. It plans to build a new surgical and emergency hospital with its own reference laboratory, creating a vertically integrated veterinary health system.

Galaxy Founder and CEO Ivan Zakharenkov, DVM, MBA, told Dallas Innovates1 that “As a burnt-out veterinarian in the past, eradicating this chronic disease from our profession has become a very personal goal for me. For the past ten years, veterinary medicine has been taken over by private capital totally detached from the realities of our profession. Forced to generate revenue for investors, traditional consolidators often fail to deliver on their promise to improve the businesses they have acquired, including better support for veterinary teams. Every organization should make the well-being of their employees a top priority, and that’s how it’s going to be at Galaxy Vets.

Corey Rosen is the founder of the National Center for Employee Ownership.

ANKARA

The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) on Friday signed an agreement with Poland to provide a record loan of 450 million euros ($474.5 million) to support more than 4 million Ukrainian refugees in the country.

The loan agreement was signed by CEB Governor Carlo Monticelli and Polish Finance Minister Magdalena Rzeczkowska, according to a statement released by the EU financial institution.

The largest loan ever granted by the CEB should help support Poland’s efforts to deal with the massive influx of Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s war on its territory.

“The loan amount we signed today demonstrates the CEB’s unequivocal determination to support Poland in a timely and effective manner to overcome an unprecedented economic challenge and human tragedy,” Monticelli said.

“In this regard, we are very pleased that our loan is designed to respond to the changing needs of displaced people and their host communities, involving both government institutions and civil society,” he added.

Rzeczkowska, for her part, pointed out that the loan linked to the support provided by the Polish authorities to Ukrainian civilians fleeing the war is the “best example” of the CEB’s ability to help member countries in times of need.

Poland currently hosts more than 4 million displaced people from Ukraine, mainly women, children and the elderly.

Founded in 1956, the CEB has 42 member states and aims to continuously support rapid and effective responses to alleviate the suffering and restore the dignity of refugees and migrants.

At least 4,677 civilians have been killed in Ukraine since the war began on February 24, according to the UN.

More than 14 million people have been forced to flee their homes, including more than 8 million who have fled to other countries, according to UN figures.​​​​​​​

New costs could affect the solvency of schools https://r43dsfrs.com/new-costs-could-affect-the-solvency-of-schools/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 23:13:42 +0000 https://r43dsfrs.com/new-costs-could-affect-the-solvency-of-schools/ If you or I want to borrow money to, for example, buy a house, we apply for a loan and the bank checks our creditworthiness.

If you or I want to borrow money to, for example, buy a house, we apply for a loan and the bank checks our creditworthiness. School districts work much the same way; if they want to build a new school, add air conditioning or a science lab, they can turn to the debt markets to raise funds.

When a district does this, loans are based on a rating from one of the major credit agencies. Generally, school district debt is considered a pretty solid investment. But a new report released this week by credit agency Fitch Ratings says that after coping with a pandemic, schools have new things to worry about when it comes to borrowing.

One of the reasons school district debt is considered a good bet is that state and local government funding for schools is stable.

“States within their own constitutions have an educational mandate,” said Ashlee Gabrysch, director at Fitch and author of the new report.

So if you lend money to a school, it’s probably good for them. But part of Gabrysch’s job is to consider both the revenues and costs of schools and how that affects their solvency. And, she said, schools face a whole host of new costs — like teachers who want to be paid more and are willing to walk away if they don’t.

“We had this pandemic, which, you know, introduced a ton of other variables, including people rethinking what they wanted their workplace to look like and voting, basically, with their feet,” said Gabrysch.

Schools need to do more to compete with the private sector to keep teachers in the classroom, Gabrysch added. This may include building better classrooms.

“What bonds can pay for are changes in conditions, right?” said Jannelle Kubinec, executive director of nonprofit education WestEd. “So, you know, you can upgrade facilities and create new lab spaces that attract students and improve teaching.”

Attracting students is another concern. Miami-Dade County Public Schools is the fourth largest district in the nation. Yet enrollment has declined over the past two decades, and each student gone means less income.

Ron Steiger, chief financial officer for the Miami-Dade district, said he’s not worried about the district’s good credit rating.

“However, that doesn’t mean I’m not worried that if we continue to lose registrations on the district side, we won’t have to make some really tough decisions.”

Like reducing the number of teachers. And taking a deposit to build a science lab isn’t that important if you don’t have the science teachers to run it.

5 things to know about the Fed’s interest rate hike and how it will affect you https://r43dsfrs.com/5-things-to-know-about-the-feds-interest-rate-hike-and-how-it-will-affect-you/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 20:40:58 +0000 https://r43dsfrs.com/5-things-to-know-about-the-feds-interest-rate-hike-and-how-it-will-affect-you/ The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates for the third time this year, on June 15, 2022, as it seeks to counter inflation that is unfolding at the fastest pace in more than 40 years.

The Federal Reserve is raising interest rates for the third time this year, on June 15, 2022, as it seeks to counter inflation that is unfolding at the fastest pace in more than 40 years. The big question is how much this will increase rates. Prior to the latest consumer price report on June 10, most market watchers and economists were expecting a 0.5 percentage point rise. But now more are anticipating a 0.75 point increase – which would be the biggest in nearly 30 years. The risk is that higher rates could push the economy into a recession, a fear well expressed by the recent plunge in the S&P 500 stock index, which fell more than 20% from its January high, which makes it a “bear market”.

What does all this mean? We asked Brian Blank, a finance expert who studies how businesses adapt and manage economic downturns, to explain what the Fed is trying to do, if it can succeed, and what that means for you.

1. What is the Fed doing and why?

The Federal Open Market Committee, the decision-making arm of the Fed, is currently considering how much to raise its benchmark interest rate. The stakes for the US economy, consumers and businesses are high.

In recent weeks, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has signaled that the US central bank will likely raise the rate by 0.5 percentage points to a range of 1.25% to 1.5%. But markets and Wall Street economists are now pricing in a bigger 0.75 point rise as consumer price data from May suggests inflation has been surprisingly tenacious. Some Wall Street analysts suggest a 1 percentage point hike is possible.

Since the release of the latest consumer price index data on June 10, the prospect of an accelerating pace of rate hikes has sent financial markets down 5%. Investors worry that the Fed could slow the economy too much in its fight to reduce inflation, which, if left unchecked, also poses serious problems for consumers and businesses. A recent poll found that inflation is the biggest problem Americans think the United States is currently facing.

2. What is the Fed trying to achieve?

The Federal Reserve has the dual mandate of maximizing employment while maintaining price stability.

Often, decision makers have to prioritize one or the other. When the economy is weak, inflation is usually subdued and the Fed can focus on keeping rates low to stimulate investment and boost employment. When the economy is strong, unemployment is usually quite low, allowing the Fed to focus on controlling inflation.

To do this, the Fed sets short-term interest rates, which in turn help it influence long-term rates. For example, when the Fed raises its short-term target rate, it increases borrowing costs for banks, which in turn pass those higher costs on to consumers and businesses in the form of higher rates on loans. long term for homes and cars.

Right now, the economy is quite strong, unemployment is low, and the Fed is able to focus primarily on reducing inflation. The problem is that inflation is so high, at an annualized rate of 8.6%, that bringing it down could require the highest interest rates in decades, which could significantly weaken the economy.

And so the Fed is trying to execute a so-called soft landing.

3. What is a “soft landing” and is it likely?

A soft landing refers to how the Fed attempts to slow inflation – and therefore economic growth – without causing a recession.

In order to stabilize prices without hurting jobs, the Fed is expected to raise interest rates rapidly in the coming months – and it currently expects rates to be at least 1 percentage point higher by 2023. It has already raised its key rate twice this year. by 0.75 percentage points in total.

Historically, when the Fed has had to raise rates quickly, economic downturns have been hard to avoid. Can he handle a soft landing this time? Powell insisted that his policy tools have become more effective since his last fight against inflation in the 1980s, this time sticking the landing. Many economists and other observers remain uncertain. And a recent survey of economists notes that many expect a recession from next year.

That said, the economy is still relatively strong, and I would say the odds of a recession beginning next year are still probably close to a toss-up.

4. Is there a way to tell what the Fed might do next?

Each time the Federal Open Market Committee meets, it seeks to communicate what it plans to do in the future to help financial markets know what to expect so they are not taken by surprise.

One of the pieces of future guidance the committee provides is a series of dots, with each dot representing a particular member’s interest rate expectations at different times. This “dot chart” previously indicated that the Fed will raise interest rates to 2% this year and 3% soon.

Given the inflation news since the last meeting, investors are now anticipating an even faster pace of rate hikes and expect the target rate to be above 3% by 2023. Long-term interest, such as US Treasury yields and mortgage rates, are already reflecting these rapid changes.

So investors and economists will be watching how the Fed’s dot chart moves after its rate decision is announced on June 15, which will determine how quickly committee members expect to raise interest rates. interest in the coming months.

5. What does this mean for consumers and the economy?

Interest rates represent the cost of borrowing, so when the Fed raises the target rate, money becomes more expensive to borrow.

First, banks pay more to borrow money, but they also charge individuals and businesses more interest, which is why mortgage rates rise accordingly. This is one of the reasons mortgage payments have risen so rapidly in 2022, even as housing markets and prices begin to slow.

When interest rates are higher, fewer people can afford a home and fewer businesses can afford to invest in a new factory and hire more workers. Therefore, higher interest rates can slow the growth rate of the economy as a whole, while dampening inflation.

And this is not a problem that concerns only Americans. Higher interest rates in the United States can have similar effects on the global economy, whether by increasing their borrowing costs or by increasing the value of the dollar, which makes it more expensive to buy goods. Americans.

But what that ultimately means for consumers and everyone else will depend on whether the pace of inflation slows as much and as quickly as the Fed had expected.

DeFi lending giant Celsius halts withdrawals https://r43dsfrs.com/defi-lending-giant-celsius-halts-withdrawals/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 05:09:57 +0000 https://r43dsfrs.com/defi-lending-giant-celsius-halts-withdrawals/ The Celsius Network, a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform and one of the largest crypto lenders, announced late Sunday that it was “suspending all withdrawals, trades and transfers between accounts.” It has 1.7 million customers.

The Celsius Network, a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform and one of the largest crypto lenders, announced late Sunday that it was “suspending all withdrawals, trades and transfers between accounts.” It has 1.7 million customers.

The company’s token, CEL, is trading at 23 cents at the time of this writing, according to CoinMarketCap. That’s a 92% decrease from April 8, when CEL was worth $3. The token was worth nearly $7 a year ago.

There have been questions about Celsius Networks’ high returns, its links to the failed stablecoin Terra, and its reserves. The value of assets on its platform halved to $12 billion in May from $24 billion in December 2021. Between March and May, $1 billion exited the system, The Financial Times reported.

In a June 7 blog post titled “Damn the torpedoes,” the company said, “Celsius has the reserves (and more than enough ETH) to meet the obligations, as dictated by our comprehensive risk management framework. liquidity.”

That was then. On June 12, an email to all customers started like this:

Due to extreme market conditions, today we are announcing that Celsius is suspending all withdrawals, trades and transfers between accounts. We are taking this step today to put Celsius in a better position to meet its withdrawal obligations over time.

In theory, Celsius works much the same as a regular bank, except in cryptocurrency. It collects deposits and then lends them. An advertisement on the Celsius site at the time of writing offered an 18.63 percent annual return on crypto deposits. Unlike a bank, Celsius does not have government FDIC insurance that protects people in the event of a bank failure.

Skeptics have repeatedly warned that Celsius Network is doomed. Some have even argued that Celsius is a Ponzi scheme.

Due to its size, Celsius touches many other parts of the cryptocurrency markets. For example, Celsius Network borrowed $500 million from Tether, the dollar-pegged stablecoin. (The loan was originally for $1 billion, Bloomberg reported.) The loan is collateralized in Bitcoin. “If Bitcoin goes down, they give us a margin call [and then] we need to give them more bitcoin,” Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky said. The Financial Times Last year.

Even investors who are not directly involved in cryptocurrency are exposed to Celsius. Canada’s second-largest pension fund, Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec (CDPQ), has invested in a $400 million funding round for the company.

Regulators have expressed interest in Celsius Network’s operations. On September 17, 2021 alone, New Jersey issued a cease and desist order to Celsius Network, Texas scheduled a hearing to determine whether to issue a cease and desist, and Alabama has asked Celsius why it shouldn’t be banned. within one month. In October 2021, New York Attorney General Letitia James included the company as one of the platforms invited to provide information about its business and products, and Celsius said it was working with regulators. State.

There is more. Celsius’ chief financial officer was arrested in Israel in November on suspicion of money laundering, fraud and sexual assault. (These allegations related to his behavior in his previous job; he was suspended from Celsius after the arrest.) When the DeFi platform BadgerDAO was hacked in December, blockchain activity showed that the Celsius network had lost $54 million worth of crypto. Celsius claimed customer and user assets have not been affected.

In its note to clients, Celsius said “the company’s ultimate goal is to stabilize liquidity.” He did not give a date when customers could expect to be able to opt out again, warning that “this process will take time and there may be delays”.

What do you want to know

  • The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are rumored to gain a new “swipe to split screen” gesture.
  • This could bring a smoother multitasking experience to Samsung’s high-end foldable phones.
  • No details have been revealed as to what this feature will look like.

We’re in a lull here in the Android space, as we prepare for long summer nights accompanied by a slew of new hardware ahead of an even busier fall. But it’s now that we’re hearing more and more about the potential specs and features of upcoming phones.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 have been widely rumored lately, and the latest rumor of @UniverseIce claims that Samsung will implement a “swipe to split screen” feature. If you’re a fan of foldable phones, this might sound a bit familiar, as it’s a similar feature found on the Oppo Find N and the recently released Vivo X Fold.

With the Find N, if you want to split the screen in half, all you have to do is use two fingers and swipe down in the middle of the screen. Then you can add another app to your screen without worrying about diving into menus or dragging and dropping apps hoping they end up in the right place.

Better multitasking is one of the main wishes for Samsung’s next batch of foldable phones. Currently, opening multiple apps on the screen is not impossible, but it can become very tedious and frustrating. This is true even when using the S Pen paired with your Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Using gestures would go a long way to improving the overall experience, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned from using the best foldable phones, it’s that there aren’t too many features. Especially when it comes to improving the usability of these devices with massive screens.

Keep in mind that even though you may be approved for a personal loan with poor credit, you will still be subject to interest rates, usually at the higher end of the lender’s range.

If debt consolidation is your main reason for applying for a personal loan, some lenders also offer personal loans explicitly for this purpose. Goldman Sachs’ Marcus even goes so far as to allow borrowers of this type of personal loan to have funds sent directly to up to 10 creditors, eliminating the need to manually send the money yourself.

If you have bad credit, it’s best to avoid lenders who only consider applicants with good or excellent credit if you want to improve your chances of being approved. It’s also a good idea to think about how you plan to use the loan. Many lenders will not allow you to use the funds for work or education expenses, for example, so do not apply to these lenders if that is your intention.

2. Increase your credit score

3. Don’t ask for more than you need

Many lenders will also consider the amount you request when deciding whether or not to approve your request. While some lenders, like SoFi and LightStream offer loans of up to $100,000, that doesn’t mean you need to apply for the maximum amount.

Before submitting your loan application, think carefully about the exact amount you will need to borrow. For example, if you take out a loan to consolidate your debt, calculate exactly how much debt you will consolidate. Otherwise, you’re just taking pictures in the dark to figure out how much money you need to borrow.

Also remember that the more money you need to borrow, the higher your monthly payments will be and the more interest you will have to pay. A high monthly payment gives you less wiggle room in your budget, and while you can sometimes opt for a longer repayment term, it also means you’ll pay more interest over the life of the loan.

4. Apply with a co-applicant

A the co-applicant is a person who applies for the loan with you and is also responsible for repaying the full amount. Co-applicants are often referred to as co-borrowers and can usually be added to your personal loan application form.

Applying with a co-applicant who has a higher credit score than yours can help you get approved for a lower interest rate, and even help you get approved where you might not have. been considered otherwise. Indeed, it is common for lenders to analyze your credit history, debt-to-equity ratio, and other identifying information during the process to determine the loan amount, interest rate, and term of your loan. .

Having a co-applicant can be helpful if you don’t have enough credit history to get approved for a lower interest rate. It can also be useful if you need to withdraw a larger amount of money but don’t have a stable income.

Since co-applicants have the financial responsibility to repay what is borrowed, it makes sense that this is someone who will also benefit from the loan. Maybe you and your spouse are finally ready to tackle that home renovation you’ve been putting off for years; in this case, you might consider having your spouse as your co-applicant. Or maybe you need more funding to take the next step with your business; if you have a business partner, that person will also benefit from the money and may therefore agree to be your co-applicant (provided the lender allows you to use the loan for that particular purpose). These are just a few considerations you should keep in mind when it comes to firing a co-applicant for a personal loan.

Although borrowers of all credit levels use personal loans, a recent study by LendingTree found that those with higher credit scores take out personal loans that are on average much higher than those taken by their counterparts in low credit rating.

Specifically, the study showed that personal loans for high-scoring borrowers (with credit scores of 720 and above) averaged $18,443, or 122.2% higher than the average for $8,301 for those with a credit score below 720. The study looked at data on closed personal loans. between April 2021 and March 2022.

Why High Credit Borrowers Can Take Out Larger Personal Loans

The LendingTree study infers a few reasons why personal loans for high-score borrowers were on average much higher than for those with lower credit scores.

First, having a better credit score generally gives you access to larger loan amounts, so it’s not as much of a barrier to getting a high loan amount as it can be for someone with a high score. lower credit. Lenders view these borrowers as likely to repay their debts.

Second, high-scoring borrowers also typically have higher incomes and therefore the ability to take out larger loans that involve larger monthly payments.

Third, high-credit borrowers take on more personal debt for a good reason: they’re looking to build wealth. One such example includes borrowing money to finance home improvements, which in turn increase the resale value of one’s home.

“Having a greater margin of financial error allows high-income and high-income people to use debt as an investment,” says Matt Schulz, chief credit analyst at LendingTree, in the company’s press release. .
