Receiver appointed to Maulbawn Holdings
24 January 2010

Anglo Irish Bank has seized control of a substantial land bank from a subsidiary of Howard Holdings, the property business backed by Kingspan co-founder Brendan Murtagh.

The bank has installed a receiver over the assets of Maulbawn Holdings, which controls large tracts of land around Cork. The company has total liabilities of more than €30million, much of which is owed to Anglo

http://www.independent.ie/business/stocks-markets/constructionrelated-stocks-lead-the-fall-in-irish-shares-2024472.html

Construction-related companies including Grafton, Kingspan and McInerney lead the charge downward. Building materials group Grafton, which applied to list an extra one million shares, was among the biggest decliners, sliding 5.2pc to €2.91 as the pace of British construction sank to a one-year low in December.

New figures showed the recent cold snap kept contractors from breaking ground on new projects. Kingspan, which sells into the British and Irish markets, fell 2.2pc to €6.26. Home builder McInerney dropped 1.5pc to 20c.

It's not just business, it's personal
The banks are now calling in personal guarantees given by developers on loans

http://www.independent.ie/opinion/analysis/its-not-just-business-its-personal-1996977.html

Cavan businessman Brendan Murtagh, meanwhile, has already come to rue the day he gave a personal guarantee on his borrowings.

Having reaped a bonanza in 2007 with the sale of €50m in shares in Kingspan, his family's insulation business, the millionaire found himself in altogether different territory last October when the EBS brought him and two of his partners in Cork property firm Howard Holdings to court to repay a €31.5m loan secured on the basis of their personal guarantee.

In a report out yesterday, Standard Bank said that Ireland -- along with Greece -- was among several countries in an "intolerable" economic situation that might lead to bailouts or even an exit from the euro area by the end of next year.

"Countries like Ireland and Greece may not be able to grow out of the current crisis," said Steve Barrow, head of Group of 10 foreign-exchange strategy at the bank in London.

"With interest-rate cuts, exchange-rate depreciation and significant fiscal support all off-limits for these countries, bailouts or even pullouts from EMU may happen next year."

In his report, Mr Barrow had said the absence of a mechanism to permit so-called fiscal transfers within the 16-nation eurozone might undermine the exchange-rate system.

Concern some nations will need to be rescued may drive the premium investors demand to hold 10-year Greek debt instead of benchmark German bunds to 400 basis points next year, from 214 basis points today, and the Irish premium may also jump, he said.

"The widening difference in yield, or spread, between Greek and Irish bonds and German securities may accelerate, increasing the debt burden for these countries," Mr Barrow wrote in the report.

The Irish-German 10-year spread may rise to 300 basis points next year, from about 170 basis points, he said. The spread averaged about 43 basis points in the past five years, with the Greek-German average at 67 basis points in the period.

"It can, in many ways, be a more destructive line of attack for the market than currency pressure," Mr Barrow wrote

Monuments to the madness

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/monuments-to-the-madness-1957895.html

The €4bn redevelopment of Cork's rather unpleasant docklands was set to be the biggest thing since the construction of the IFSC in Dublin.

Howard Holdings €1bn Atlantic Quarter was to be one of the tentpole attractions of the plan, which was to have three vast plectrum-shaped apartment blocks, a huge conference and event centre, 550,000sq ft of offices and the ubiquitous four-star hotel.

Despite planning permission being granted over the summer, the project has hit serious speedbumps.

Like most other property developers, the Brendan Murtagh-controlled Howard Holdings is being squeezed by the banks, with EBS launching a lawsuit seeking the return of €26m.

A government decision to defer a €2.3m grant to kickstart construction of a key bridge has also raised questions over the future of the scheme

STATE-OWNED ANGLO Irish Bank has restructured securities it holds over the assets of developer Howard Holdings assets in a move understood to be in preparation for moving its loans to Nama.

Howard was one of the most active property players in the boom – at one stage it had assets of €4 billion under development. It is the main private investor behind the proposed €1 billion Atlantic Quarter in Cork's docklands. It was also developing a conference and event centre there in partnership with the local authority.

Howard Holdings plc in Britain was wound up earlier this year. The company was a shareholder in Howard Property Ireland, along with Brendan Murtagh, Lee Madden and Greg Coughlan.

The Monaghan family trust has settled an action in which it had sought judgment orders for €11 million against businessman Brendan Murtagh and others over money allegedly loaned by the trust for a major development in Poland.

The proceedings by Ray and Eileen Monaghan, of Rossaville, Ballincar, Co Sligo, acting on behalf of the Monaghan family partnership, were admitted to the Commercial Court earlier this year by Mr Justice Peter Kelly.

Yesterday, the judge was told by Ross Gorman that the matter had been settled. Counsel asked for a long adjournment to February next to facilitate implementation of the settlement which, he said, involved the defendants procuring the sale of certain properties. The judge agreed to that adjournment
