India’s top court squashed a decision that threatened the ArcelorMittal’s $6 bln bid for Essar through a new bankruptcy regime. It’s a timely boost for lenders and investors needed to re-energise the flagging economy, says @ugalani: https://bit.ly/2QlpWYF

Capgemini’s $4 bln deal for Altran is being held up by Elliott and separate legal action. With CEO Paul Hermelin due to pass the torch to his successor next year, sweetening the offer would be a nice parting gift, writes @CGAThompson: https://bit.ly/2NNKgAo

Soho House has raised capital valuing it at $2 bln. Unlike WeWork, it can flaunt years of history and rising profitability. Yet the heady price tag will only make sense if Soho House keeps expanding without sacrificing its exclusive appeal, says @Unmack1: https://bit.ly/355jrNW

Andrew Mackenzie cleaned up BHP after boom-year excesses, now Mike Henry, a well-respected veteran, faces a similarly daunting challenge: getting the world’s largest miner ready for a low-carbon economy. No mega-deals ahead, perhaps, but plenty of potential pitfalls. 👇
