Reddit plans to sell around 22 million shares between $31 and $34 apiece to fund up to $748 million for its U.S. Initial Public Offering IPO, with a valuation of up to $6.4 billion. Even with the lofty valuation, it is less than the $10 billion that Reddits 2021 financing brought in. Reddit was established in 2005 and today has 100,000 "subreddits," or forums, where users may debate a wide range of subjects. Reddit, which gained notoriety in 2021 for its "memestock" controversy, has set aside 8% of its shares for moderators and qualified users due to possible market volatility. Despite having a substantial user base of 73.1 million daily active "uniques," Reddits IPO is being closely watched due to concerns over content control and financial difficulties. Read More..

Japan Bolsters LNG Supply with Investments in Australia, U.S. Projects

As contracts with major LNG suppliers, such as Russia, end, Japan is bolstering its longterm supply by funding projects in Australia and the US. The largest power generator in Japan, JERA, has purchased a share in Woodside Energys Scarborough project, underscoring attempts to find dependable supplies in the face of global unrest. Japanese utilities aggressively seek collaborations, stressing supply dependability from allies, despite political problems like increased emissions regulations in Australia and restrictions on US LNG export licences. This move underscores a strategic shift in Japans LNG purchase policy. It is consistent with growing collaboration among G7 nations in the wake of Russias invasion of Ukraine over energy security.

The current droughts effects on Zambias economy and budget will be evaluated by the International Monetary Fund IMF during a visit to the country in midApril. There is a drought in 84 of Zambias 116 districts, and the rainy season ends early in late January. The drought, which significantly impacts hydropowerdependent electrical supplies and agricultural production, was designated a national catastrophe by President Hakainde Hichilema.

According to Statistics South Africa, the country just escaped a technical recession in Q4 2023, with the GDP expanding by just 0.1% following a 0.2%

According to Statistics South Africa, the country just escaped a technical recession in Q4 2023, with the GDP expanding by just 0.1% following a 0.2% drop in Q3. After growing by 1.9% in 2022, the annual GDP shrank to 0.6% in 2023. Estimates for GDP growth in 2024 range from 0.7% to 1.5%, which is insufficient to alleviate the high unemployment, poverty, and inequality rates. These matters are vital because, on May 29, the nation will have hotly contested elections. For the first time since apartheid ended, analysts believe the ruling African National Congress ANC may lose its parliamentary majority due to worries about how to handle social and economic issues.

For the fourth meeting in a row, the European Central Bank ECB held interest rates constant. This was expected given the lower inflation and economic growth estimates, which increased expectations for possible rate reduction beginning in June. The Governing Council emphasised its commitment to supporting inflation, returning to the 2% objective, as the deposit rate stayed at a historic low of 4%. A little drop in the euro and a rise in monetary easing expectations were among the markets reactions. Additional details on the rate adjustment timeframe will be revealed at the ECB President Christine Lagardes subsequent press conference. Policymakers are waiting for additional information before making any changes to monetary policy, even as their fears about inflation are waning. In the meantime, international equivalents such as the Bank for International Settlements and the Federal Reserve take a similarly cautious approach to monetary policy and inflation. Read More..
