Investing.com -- Here is a rundown of the regulatory news releases from the London Stock Exchange on Wednesday, 13th November. Please refresh for updates.
Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening up 18 points at 7,278 on Friday, according to financial bookmakers, with futures up 20 points ahead of the cash market open. * SMITHS GROUP: Smiths Group Plc on Friday named JehanZeb Noor, an executive at Australia-based packaging company Amcor Flexibles, to lead its healthcare business and oversee its separation from the group next year. * BANKS: Britain's banks and building societies will have to charge the same amount for all overdrafts from April 2020, the Financial Conduct Authority said on Friday in what it called the most radical change of its kind in a generation.
The healthcare business has suffered from product delays, stricter European regulations and two lost contracts in the United States. A plan to merge it with U.S.-based ICU Medical fell through in September because Smiths and ICU could not agree on terms. "Pursuing a demerger of Smiths Medical will lead to two stronger companies, each...maximising the opportunities in their respective markets," Chief Executive Andy Reynolds Smith said.
