Argentina’s leading unions have reached an agreement on a labor reform bill with President Mauricio Macri that seeks to reduce labor costs in order to attract foreign investors. The bill will be sent to congress next week and will reduce severance payments 40 percent and eliminate other perks, according to a person with direct knowledge of its contents. Macri said in an interview Tuesday in New York that union leaders have agreed on the majority of the bill’s proposals.
Arcor will likely seek to sell shares at some point, and Argentina has become a favorite of emerging-market investors looking to profit from President Mauricio Macri’s pro-business policies, but Pagani says he feels no pressure to rush an offering right now. Argentine companies have $2.6 billion of share sales in the pipeline, on top of the already $15.7 billion in equity sales and debt issuance since Macri took office in December 2015.
The world’s biggest maker of hard candies is seeking a strategic partner to help it expand outside Latin America. Arcor SAIC, the closely held Argentine food conglomerate, would be willing to do a stock swap with a partner in order to get access to more overseas markets, especially in Asia. Luis Pagani, the chairman and a majority owner with family members, says that while talks haven’t begun yet, Arcor’s family ownership might appeal to other global candy makers that value similar structures.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
