Manchester City Announces New Global Partnership with Xylem
Premier League Champions, Manchester City today announced a global multi-year partnership with Xylem to become the Club’s Official Water Technology Partner. The partnership was announced today at an event in Singapore, which was attended by Club legend, Joleon Lescott, during the Singapore International Water Week – the world’s premier global platform for co-creating innovative water solutions.
Xylem will also partner with City’s sister club New York City FC and the Manchester City women’s team.
Through the partnership, Xylem aims to raise awareness about pressing global water challenges and solutions. Xylem will also work with Manchester City on Xylem Watermark projects, such as building water towers in communities around the world without access to clean water. Xylem Watermark is the company’s social investment platform. Across the globe, 2.1 billion people lack clean drinking water at home which has serious consequences for community development. Every year, 443 million school days are lost worldwide due to water-related illnesses, and women and children spend more than 200 million hours collecting water daily, drastically limiting time for more productive endeavours.
Xylem branding will feature at the Club’s Etihad Stadium on matchdays and also at the City Football Academy.
Damian Willoughby, Senior Vice President of Partnership at City Football Group, said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Xylem. Manchester City and Xylem share a common commitment to operating in a sustainable and innovative way, whilst enhancing the lives of people in our communities around the world. We are excited to harness the global appeal of football to raise awareness of water challenges and support Xylem’s efforts to tackle these issues.”
Patrick Decker, President and CEO of Xylem, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Manchester City and excited to engage with their amazing fans around the world. From our first meeting, it was clear that City’s value system was aligned with Xylem’s. Our purpose as a company is to create both economic and social value. We do that every day by bringing solutions to market that solve water needs and challenges, and through our Xylem Watermark program. To partner with a Club that is committed to bringing about positive social change through football is a natural fit. Working with Manchester City, we will extend our reach to their massive fan base and, in doing so, increase our ability to create social value.”

Litigation Researchers Believe - Dutch Court Ruling - Big Blow to Petrobras’ Arbitration Strategy19.9.2018 22:34 | Pressemelding
Battea Global Litigation Research, Inc. believes today was a big milestone win for a large group of international investors supporting a coalition of law firms and the Dutch Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation (“SPCF” or “Foundation”) in the Netherlands, in their litigation over losses relating to the Petrobras “Lavo Jato” or “Operation Car Wash” scandal. The Rotterdam District Court ruled on whether the Foundation representing investors, who purchased securities outside of the United States, has the right to sue Petrobras in Dutch courts. Petrobras has been fighting investors both in the U.S. and internationally and has sought to drag investors to arbitration in Brazil. However, on January 3, 2018, Petrobras announced that in connection with the losses investors suffered from the “Lavo Jato” bribery scandal, it had agreed to a USD $3 billion settlement with investors who purchased ADRs (American Depository Receipts/American Depository Shares) and USD denominated bonds in the U

On January 23, 2017, Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation (the “Foundation”) initiated an international collective action for Petrobras investors who purchased Petrobras securities outside of the United States and have suffered damages as a consequence of fraud that was uncovered by the “Lavo Jato” or “Operation Car Wash” investigations at the Brazilian petrochemical company that was once the 5th largest company in the world.
