So that we can better understand our around the world and influence. Jim Vos often says this. Stratagems (List(en)) are multifunctional Advisory metaphors for the current strategic and tactical action. The I Ching is a future Oracle. With the Strategemen, you ask yourself: “How to do something?” (As a structured knowledge, on the dialectical yin and Yang logic > 1) is based, how (method) you currently and in specific situations should be. Without competitors and changing circumstances anyone can easily create his life.

Destinations are easily reached. In a globalized world, holistic inpiduelle Guide and navigation systems are asked to interpret the relevant to world and identify action and re-action pattern. This the best defensive, offensive and Endhaltungs strategies must be selected. The stratagems are a good way to approach the thinking of Chinese, why are these times of uncertainty and change, which many can no longer comprehend understanding with the Strategemen of the and logic (fuzzy): Strategem No. 7: control CD Strategem No. 13: control CD and bank secret source: you (the stratagems) particularly well defensively, and offensively to harm prevention, used.

Mezzanine capital and mezzanine financing as venture capital for medium-sized companies and owner-managed family business the from the Italian term “Mezzanine” originally referred to a low mezzanine floor between two main floors architecturally. Mezzanine financing put as a mezzanine”in any respect: is Bank-independent forms of financing which is a between debt and equity. According to this intermediate position is also the liability of mezzanine capital. Compared with the foreign capital it is subordinated, remains but mainly regarding equity. I.e. in case of insolvency of all outstanding claims satisfy investing financial backers of foreign capital the creditors and then mezzanine capital.

Through the subordination to the classic foreign capital, mezzanine capital is therefore to evaluate as economic equity. If requirements complementing the mezzanine participation agreements meet, can the mezzanine capital legal balance sheet as equity (see). Under the generic term of mezzanine financing all forms of instruments of corporate financing can thus summarize, which represent a hybrid of debt and equity and are characterized by their subordination. The mezzanine capital is so stimmrechtsloses equity. The mezzanine capital titled also as a hybrid form of financing is therefore no new financing instrument, but is intended to be a summary of already long established ways of corporate financing (quiet capital, participation capital and loan capital). Manifestations of mezzanine capital: mezzanine capital can similar to equity capital (so-called equity mezzanine) in the form of profit participation certificates, worth securitised paper profit participation certificates or dormant holdings be issued. Also convertible profit sharing certificates, promissory notes and bonds are possible. Mezzanine capital, which in the form of subordinated or participating loans or granting shareholder loans, is, has, however, foreign capital character, and is recognized as liability (so-called debt mezzanine). The design possibilities of mezzanine capital are not legally or only little regulated, so flexible and optimal financing solutions are possible, for example, as regards duration, cancellation, profit and interest rules or repayment (www.emissionsmarktplatz.de). Mezzanine capital can also be used in the context of employee involvement programs.

More Expensive Product Recalls

Most modern X-ray technology detects metal, glass, ceramic and stone themselves in aluminum packaging Balingen/Paris, September 30, 2010 – glass splinters in the carrot salad or metal particles in the strawberry yogurt: technical errors in the production process are often the trigger for a callback. Companies face in these cases not only with image damage, but in the case of personal injury with high claims. While much of this expensive and risky actions could be avoided by a better detection. On the SIAL 2010, international trade fair for food in Paris, presenting the system provider Bizerba from October 17-21 the new product-inspection system XRE with advanced X-ray technology (Salon IPA, Hall 7, stand F085) the principle of the system is simple: an X-ray tube with integrated high-voltage power supply is mounted under a conveyor belt. The rays take on the product and be absorbed by its individual components vary. Above the conveyor belt is a high resolution detection unit which converts the transmitted radiation into an electrical signal, which ultimately a digital X-ray image is created. This image is evaluated with the help of a product-specific visualization software.

The XRE can attain a throughput of up to 400 packages per minute. The XRE detected metal, glass, ceramic or stone – even in closed aluminium packaging so far it was hardly possible to detect metallic contaminants in cans or in closed aluminium packaging. With the Bizerba XRE product inspection system all foreign objects can be detected, which better or worse absorb the X-rays due to its density, chemical composition, or their mechanical dimensions than the surrounding product”, explains Dieter Conzelmann, Director industry solutions market at Bizerba. This applies equally to impurities from metal, glass, ceramic and stone. Some plastics”, says Conzelmann, PVC or rubber, as well as various product defects, such as The system can detect cracks and air pockets”.

Europeans

It suggests manufacturing and purchasing in the metalworking industry of China, not only in times of financial and economic crises, to find new ways for the procurement of purchased parts in the metalworking industry. Many looks are today based on China, because the market is lucrative. In addition to attractive prices, it is the quality of the delivered products, which often can convince but especially in the last few years. State of the art manufacturing facilities in China shoot like mushrooms from the Earth. They are always equipped with high-quality technology, but it not always the expectations of European customers. The causes of this are often diverse and sometimes it is only the English manual of a CNC machine, which cannot be read by the staff, because nobody speaks English.

A market is therefore not easy for Europeans in China and it begs the question – can a company from Europe successfully use the concentrated power of the Chinese metal-working industry, without having to be involved locally? The answer is Yes, if you with high reliability has established trustful relations with partner companies in China, the assurance of highest quality requirements and the compliance with agreed delivery schedules see as their top priority! How can such a partnership in particular look like? A partner company in China must be certified according to European quality requirements and should belong to each in his area of the leading suppliers in China. Such companies hold advanced positions then sometimes on a global scale. A production in China will be cancelled without your own financial risk for European companies and can be very interesting even for small businesses in this manner. Based step-by-step a pre-Olympic series production should be implemented on a sample production and a test for the end customer. A production is done on the basis of part drawings and samples available. Since it is usually detailed drawings, the often-touted piracy plays in the case of purchase part production does not matter because the item derived from no assemblies allow. Only a partial amount of the corresponding tooling costs should be calculated for the sample production. Only after realized pattern series delivery as well as quality inspection is an agreed compensation.

Contractually, it completes a direct relationship with an export enterprise in China. This export business should be a purely Chinese company whose managing directors, owners and employees 100% come from China. A such company has special knowledge of the market in China, and has the necessary licence to export. The selection of the best suitable Chinese manufacturing operation, the appropriate on-site coordination and quality control is carried out by the exporters prior to shipping, as well as its implementation (CIF/FOB). The full settlement of all services to the customer is then carried out by the Chinese exporters. In Europe, you need a constant contact partner from the first request, up to the final serial delivery in all organizational as well as technical and specific issues surrounding the parts to the page is and thus ensures the correct implementation of European specifications in China. The decisive advantage for European companies is in this particular constellation. On the one hand all Chinese concerns a manufacturing task of a market experienced export companies in China can be co-ordinated on the other hand come to clarify all technical and organizational issues in Europe. FroMOS GmbH from Saxony cooperates successfully for many years in this way with a Chinese export enterprises.

Bed Genesis in over 30 000 variants available the Start-Up company puzzles the new Magnetsteckbett has presented this Monday in Konigsbrunn in Augsburg Genesis.

European Legislation

The countdown for the most important change is the countdown for the most important change since the introduction of the euro in German payments runs, but only a few companies, authorities and associations have taken so far it. Most lag behind significantly scheduled specifications to the single euro payments area (SEPA) in the implementation of the binding and on the 1st February 2014. This shows the current survey SEPA implementation in Germany, conducted by ibi research now for the second time in six months mountain, the Bank-Verlag and InterCard together with van den. The software update received too late, technical problems, disease-related failures by responsible employees, obtained by the daily business or simply underestimated the scope there are many reasons why companies are not yet ready for SEPA a few months before the final conversion. But SEPA stands directly outside the door and the time running out of many companies, organizations and associations, because the European Legislation that already as of February 1, 2014 the existing national transfer and direct debit schemes be abolished. At that time, the SEPA credit transfer and the SEPA direct debit must be binding used. Utilizing extensive organizational and technical adjustments however is required for the part: especially for large enterprises, the successful launch of SEPA represents a high cost.

You expect an effort by average 1,654 person-days in contrast to small companies with an average 84 and medium-sized enterprises with 359 person-days. This adaptation of the internal systems and obtaining written direct debit mandates, according to the study, are among the biggest challenges. Despite the warnings, most of the steps to migration will be only in the fourth quarter. This means that first test transactions, as well as the main switch and the completion of remaining works are therefore often late. Direct debit inputs but fail due to a delayed transition, may 27 Percent of respondents already within five days from the lead to liquidity problems.

That’s why you should use strongly the remaining three months, until February 1, 2014 successfully to cope with the changeover. Top experts at the ibi seminar show how you can do it, on October 22 in Berlin compact and practical shape on the basis of live demonstrations. The joint event by van den Berg, EFiS and ibi research at the University of Regensburg offers sufficient opportunity for questions.
