Elan: trying to save a would-be blockbuster

The temporary suspension, on reports of worrying side effects, rocked shareholder confidence in Ireland's largest public company. Investors fear that one of Elan's two lead compounds may never generate revenue. The company may be able to save AN-1792, in which case it could still be a blockbuster drug - but the risks attached are high.

ESB divestiture: too little too late

Ireland's incumbent power utility, ESB, has spent years trying to stave off a break-up. Together with the Irish Commission for Energy Regulation (CER), the company instituted a system of virtual power plant auctions to help Ireland comply with the letter of the EU Electricity Directive, if not the spirit.

European forecourts: exploiting the 'off home' trade

The Irish licensing board recently approved Esso's fourteenth off-license enabling it to add alcohol to its non-fuel offering on the forecourt. With an increase in at-home alcohol consumption in Ireland, as in much of Europe, stocking this product category looks certain to pay off for Esso. Other fuel players already in on the act should look to make further investment in the area.

European power: Ireland writing Interconnector wish list

In an upcoming green paper, the Irish government is expected to call for greater interconnectivity between Ireland and Britain. While smaller EU states such as Ireland would undoubtedly benefit from greater connectivity with their neighbors, through lower domestic energy prices, this obviously has to be balanced with imperatives to ensure their own security of supply and generation portfolio.

Exel: increasing its Accenture

Exel is partnering again with Accenture, to improve and develop better control and visibility of its European freight finance function.
