Bondholders in PizzaExpress are pressing the company to engage in restructuring talks as fears mount about the future of the 54-year-old business. The pizza chain and debtholders have consulted financial advisers ahead of third-quarter results next month, which are expected to reveal poor summer trading that will add further pressure on a balance sheet laden with £1.1bn of net debt.

The results will make disappointing reading for policymakers at the European Central Bank who pledged last month to provide indefinite stimulus to revive the 19-country currency bloc's ailing economy. IHS Markit's September Euro Zone Composite Final Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI), considered a good indicator of overall economic health, sank to 50.1 from August's 51.9. "The euro zone economy ground to a halt in September, the PMI surveys painting the darkest picture since the current period of expansion began in mid-2013," said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit.
Euro zone business growth stalled in September as an ongoing contraction in manufacturing activity is increasingly affecting the services industry, according to a survey which showed little chance of an improvement this month.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil fell to the lowest level in almost two months after swelling inventories in the world’s biggest economy added to a pessimistic and weakening economic backdrop.Futures in New York declined 1.8% Wednesday. U.S. oil stockpiles rose by 3.1 million barrels last week, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The increase exceeded the median forecast from analysts and was the biggest rise since May. The price decline was exacerbated by a slide in broader equity markets, fueling fears about the American economy slowing.The U.S. benchmark crude has fallen about 16% from the peak reached on the first trading day after crippling aerial attacks damaged key Saudi Arabian oil installations. Speedy repairs by the Saudis dovetailed with signals of weakening global energy demand to undermine prices.“The restoration of Saudi oil and demand destruction fears have the market in its grips today and today’s build in U.S. crude stocks doesn’t help that,” said Gene McGillian, manager of market research at Tradition Energy.Meanwhile, domestic gasoline inventories dropped by 228,000 barrels despite forecasts for a 600,000-barrel increase.Crude prices are now below where they were before the Sept. 14 attacks on Saudi Arabia that temporarily halved the kingdom’s production. The strikes slashed daily output from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries by 1.6 million barrels a day last month, the biggest drop in 16 years, according to a Bloomberg survey.Meanwhile, the S&P 500’s two-day slump reached the most in two months as private payrolls fell short of estimates a day after a manufacturing gauge slumped to the lowest in a decade.“Crude markets remain tight, but the dominating force right now is simply the gloomy economic-demand outlook,” analysts at consultant JBC Energy GmbH said. The oil market has “so many things to worry about.”West Texas Intermediate for November delivery fell 98 cents to settle at $52.64 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.Brent for December settlement slipped $1.20 to $57.69 on the ICE Futures Europe Exchange.

(Bloomberg) -- Turkish shares have just posted their best month since January, and there is at least one sign that investors are betting on the good run continuing.The cost of hedging against declines in the largest exchange-traded fund tracking the nation’s stocks has slumped to the lowest since mid-April, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The 11% gain in the iShares MSCI Turkey ETF last month was accompanied by an increase in volumes, both in the fund’s securities and its related options.The benchmark Borsa Istanbul 100 Index rose 8.6% in September, the most since January’s 14% jump. The gain in the New York ETF reflects the view that relative real rates of return in Turkey are becoming alluring, according to Julian Rimmer, a trader at Investec Bank Plc in London.“The main -- some may argue the only -- pillar supporting the Turkish market is its high real rates of return which, as global growth assumptions continue to lessen, make its currency an attractive carry-trade,” Rimmer said in emailed comments. “Declining interest rates in Turkey then, underpin the market. That international investor positioning was either very low or non-existent is also a significant contributory factor.”After 750 basis points of benchmark interest-rate cuts in his first two meetings, Turkish central bank Governor Murat Uysal said last week the reductions were “front-loaded,” and that the bank has limited policy space. That’s a clear signal to some that the pace of easing will moderate under a governor who in late July vowed to preserve “a reasonable rate of real return.”While Turkey’s current real rate of return of 1.49% is lower than the average of major emerging markets, inflation is projected to continue decelerating. The 12-month estimate of 12.2% in the central bank’s latest survey would give Turkey a real rate of return of about four percentage points, more than 100 basis points above its peers.With volatility in the lira tamed for now and the carry trade drawing investors, money managers can focus on stock-specific developments and the valuation advantage Istanbul shares have over other emerging markets. That may explain investors’ recent drive to pour money into the ETF.After a two month lull, the ETF has started attracting strong inflows, with investor purchases accelerating to the fastest pace in more than a year on Tuesday. Short interest as a percentage of shares outstanding in the ETF dropped to a one-month low, IHS Markit Ltd. data showed.“Sentiment is improving and valuations are compelling,” Rimmer said. “Some of the geopolitical tensions which scuppered the first-half performance have also diminished, so there’s a confluence of positive agents.”(Updates with inflows to ETF in penultimate paragraph)\--With assistance from Constantine Courcoulas.To contact the reporter on this story: Tugce Ozsoy in Istanbul at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Blaise Robinson at email@example.com, John Viljoen, Paul JarvisFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil fell to the lowest in almost two months as negative economic signals darkened the outlook for global energy demand.Futures dropped 0.8% in New York on Tuesday. Manufacturing in the world’s largest economy has slumped and the World Trade Organization cut its forecast for commerce to a decade low. The bleak economic picture contrasted with a plunge in OPEC crude output last month driven almost entirely by crippling attacks on Saudi Arabian oil installations.“Demand fears are overriding supply fears,” Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at Price Futures Group Inc., said by telephone.Stocks fell and Treasuries rose as investors fled riskier assets including commodities and equities. Traders’ attention has turned to the U.S.-China trade war and its implications for global energy demand. High-level talks between the world’s two largest economies are expected to take place within weeks.West Texas Intermediate for November delivery fell 45 cents to settle at $53.62 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the lowest close since Aug. 8.The U.S. benchmark has fallen 15% since reaching $62.90 on the first trading day after the Sept. 14 attacks that devastated Saudi oil output. In the meantime, the kingdom has surprised many observers with the swift pace of repairs and restoration.Brent for December settlement fell 36 cents to close at $58.89 on the ICE Futures Europe Exchange. The global benchmark crude traded at a $5.39 premium to WTI for the same month.Asian manufacturing sentiment remained mostly bleak in September due to the trade conflict and waning demand. The euro area’s manufacturing sector slumped last month.In the U.S., the Institute for Supply Management’s factory index slipped to 47.8 in September, the lowest since June 2009. The figure missed all estimates in a Bloomberg survey that had called for an increase from August’s 49.1.“In view of subdued global economic prospects and rising U.S. oil production, any concerns” about oil supply tightening have evaporated, said Carsten Fritsch, an analyst at Commerzbank AG in Frankfurt.\--With assistance from Grant Smith and Sharon Cho.To contact the reporters on this story: Robert Tuttle in Calgary at firstname.lastname@example.org;Jacquelyn Melinek in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: David Marino at firstname.lastname@example.org, Joe Carroll, Mike JeffersFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Conventional oil and gas discoveries during the past three years are at the lowest levels in seven decades and a significant rebound is not expected, according to a new report by global business information provider IHS Markit (INFO). The low levels in discoveries come as a result of a pullback during the past 10 years in the wildcat drilling that targets conventional oil and gas plays—most drastically after oil prices collapsed in 2014. The report, entitled IHS Markit Conventional Exploration Results in Early 2018 Through 2019: No Rebound in Activity or Results says that these trends have far-reaching implications that could limit future conventional reserves additions.
September PMI data indicated a marginally faster rate of improvement in the health of U.S manufacturing, though the overall picture remained one of a struggling goods producing sector that has suffered its worst quarter since 2009. Business confidence remained relatively gloomy due to muted demand conditions. The seasonally adjusted IHS Markit final U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index™ (PMI™) posted 51.1 in September, broadly in line with the earlier flash reading of 51.0, and up from 50.3 in August to signal a slightly stronger end to the third quarter for the U.S manufacturing sector.
Meanwhile, the rate of job creation picked up to a seven-month high. The seasonally adjusted IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index® (PMI®) rose back above the 50.0 no-change mark in September, posting 51.0 from 49.1 in August.
