    Anadarko shareholders to vote next month on Occidental deal

    Anadarko Petroleum Corp shareholders will vote Aug. 8 on the oil and gas producer's planned $38 billion sale to Occidental Petroleum Corp - the biggest oil and gas deal of the year. Occidental avoided its own shareholder vote on the deal by securing a controversial $10 billion financing agreement with Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, which allowed it to raise the cash portion of its offer. While an Anadarko holders' vote for the proposed deal is very likely, the price has angered several Occidental investors, including billionaire activist Carl Icahn, who has called for a special meeting to replace four Occidental directors.

    From Gambling to Solar, U.S. Tribes Bet on New Revenue Stream

    (Bloomberg) -- Dozens of new solar and wind projects are sprouting up on tribal lands across the U.S. as Native Americans seek new ways to boost their economies beyond casinos and untaxed cigarettes.In the fall, Wirsol Solar AG expects to start building a 110-megawatt solar project on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. And last month, the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Nevada was announced as the site for two solar arrays expected to produce 500 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 180,000 homes. They already have a prominent customer: NV Energy Inc., the utility owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.The efforts are the latest in a burgeoning trend. In 2018, the U.S. handed out $6.5 million in grants to 11 tribal communities seeking to develop solar or wind power in eight states. It might be considered a return to nature. That’s certainly the view of Henry Red Cloud, a member of the Oglala Lakota Nation.“The native’s way of life, in ceremony, song, dance and language, are all based around the sun,” Red Cloud said in an interview. “We’re taking our old ways and becoming sustainable.” Solar, he added, “is our new casinos.”Red Cloud runs a business called Lakota Solar Enterprises that provides technical training to tribe members seeking to work on the projects. His goal: Stimulating the tribe’s economy with a “green path” the community can be proud of.The Moapa Reservation projects, planned by 8minute Solar Energy and EDF Renewables, a unit of Electricite de France SA, are part of one of the biggest expansions of solar and storage ever proposed in the U.S., along with a nearby solar farm located on federal land.It’s a win-win-win situation for the tribes, said Peter Meisen, founder of the Global Energy Network Institute, an industry research firm.There’s a “bandwagon effect” going on among Native American communities because “there’s so much to gain,” Meisen said by telephone. He listed the potential for added employment, low-cost electricity on-site and revenue from contracts to supply power throughout a region.The Lakota community’s new solar array isn’t the first on the reservation, located about 30 miles north of Las Vegas. In March 2017, the tribe -- with less than 400 members -- activated the first utility-scale solar farm on tribal land in the U.S., a 250-megawatt array covering 2.2 square miles. Some of that power is sent to Los Angeles.If the location is good, casinos are “a gold mine” for tribes, according to Tom Buttgenbach is chief executive officer of 8minute. At the same time, though, they could face threats moving forward from things like online gaming, he said.Casinos need to be within 50 miles of a metro area (with 10,000 or more residents) to be highly profitable, according to research by the National Indian Gaming Commission. That criteria covers less than half the tribal casinos running now, the group said.Meanwhile, leases for wind and solar facilities offer “a long-term steady income” with “predictable cash flow,” Buttgenbach said.Financing large projects on tribal land can be difficult. Typically, they come in the form of 50-50 partnerships between the tribe and the project’s developer. But it takes an understanding of tribal governance to get that done, he said.The growing number of climate initiatives from U.S. states like California and New York is also opening opportunities, said Vickie Simmons, who serves as chairwoman for the Moapa tribe.After Nevada lawmakers approved legislation to have renewables account for 50% of its energy portfolio by 2030, “everybody was knocking on our doors,” Simmons said. “Now, it’s all about creating a new economy.”\--With assistance from Brian Eckhouse.To contact the reporter on this story: Gerald Porter Jr. in New York at gporter30@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lynn Doan at, Reg Gale, Pratish NarayananFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Britain's state-run health service is teaming up with Amazon to provide medical advice for common ailments such as migraines and flu via the tech giant's voice assistant Alexa, aiming to help more patients at home and cut down on costs. The plan is to give patients - especially the elderly, blind and those unable to access the internet through traditional means - access to information verified by the National Health Service (NHS) by using voice commands, the government said. Caroline Abrahams, charity director at Age UK, said smart devices could help older people access routine health information and advice, especially if there was support available to help them learn how to use them.

    Ex-Berkshire Manager Lou Simpson Converts Firm to Family Office

    (Bloomberg) -- Lou Simpson, a money manager praised by Warren Buffett for his work at Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s Geico years ago, now plans to oversee investments for some very select clients: his family.SQ Advisors LLC, a firm Simpson founded after retiring from Berkshire Hathaway in 2010, ceased managing outside money on June 30, after announcing plans to convert into a family office. The company, which notified clients in early January 2019 of the switch, filed its final 13F quarterly report earlier this week.Simpson, 82, spent years picking stocks for Geico, generally focusing on smaller companies than the ones Buffett chose. Buffett, chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, praised Simpson’s track record in his 2004 annual report, saying: “Lou is a cinch to be inducted into the investment Hall of Fame.” Simpson, who joined Berkshire as part of the acquisition of Geico, was at one point seen as a potential investment manager successor for Buffett and business partner Charlie Munger.SQ Advisors spent the first six months of the year helping to transfer or liquidate all outside client accounts, according to a filing earlier this year. Kimberly Querrey, president of SQ Advisors and Simpson’s wife, didn’t respond to messages seeking comment during the holiday week. A message left at a phone number listed for the firm wasn’t immediately returned.To contact the reporters on this story: Katherine Chiglinsky in New York at;Miles Weiss in Washington at mweiss@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Michael J.
