Oil is not well. Oil experienced the sharpest sell-off in months this week, taking many company stocks and commodity-linked emerging markets right along with them. Russia (RSX) is down 4% in the last five trading days, erasing all of its gains from the week before. The SPDR Energy Select (XLE) is down 2.25%. Wednesday night's release of the China Caixin PMI indicator is one factor that caused concern for market participants across the commodity complex, after falling to its lower level in about a year. On Thursday after market hours, Barclays Capital insisted that oil is not in for a hard landing. The recent price drop could prove to be "transitory due to other impending developments," BarCap analysts led by Michael Cohen said in a report yesterday. The market has been focused on Russia and Saudi Arabia, two of the world's biggest producers, keeping to their promise to curb production. There is also the American fracking story. Technology has improved so much that they don't need oil to be expensive, but that all comes with a price and these companies have all been in a recession of sorts for the past year. Doubts about an OPEC renewal of the production curb have emerged, and Libyan supply stands poised to rebound by 200 thousand barrels a day this month. U.S. energy sector data show pace of production growth here as well, pushing prices lower. "The market began to lose patience...but fears of a recession were not the primary culprit," says Cohen about the down trend in oil. The downward correction this week also comes at a time during producer earnings season. A review of oil price dynamics over the past several quarters has been associated with a rebasing of the market’s expectations about the breakeven price of shale. In eight of the last 12 earnings seasons, oil prices ended lower than where they began, and on average, declined 2.5% over the earnings period. First quarter earnings showed that producers have not skipped a beat, with most producing more oil than analyst expectations. Headlines around these results have cause the market to readjust higher its expectations for U.S. crude oil production, and this is likely contributing to lower prices, Cohen and his team write from New York.

Indian restaurant chain Tiffinbites has snapped up the Bombay Bicycle Club from Clapham House for £4.4m. The Bombay Bicycle Club runs three eat-in restaurants and 15 takeaways across London. Clapham said it would use the sale proceeds to pay down its bank debts and plough money into the development of its other restaurant brands - Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Tootsies and The Real Greek. Clapham scaled back expansion plans last December when it issued a shock profits warning after being hit by spiralling food costs and rent increases. Shares in the Aim-listed company jumped by 10.5p to 90p on news of the sale, a rise of 13%. Tiffinbites currently runs four restaurants serving healthy, low-fat Indian food to City workers at St Paul's, Canary Wharf, Moorgate and Liverpool Street. When it first entered the Square Mile five years ago it became known for its takeaways in traditional tiffin boxes - several stacked boxes with a carry handle, each box containing individual portions of curry dishes. Tiffinbites was founded by Jamal Hirani and Jonathan Marks who met at Marks & Spencer where they were buyers, and saw an opportunity in selling healthy Indian food to City workers. "I was working in the City and missing my mum's cooking," Hirani has said. Tiffinbites now delivers 2,000 lunches daily to big company offices such as O2 in Slough and Barclays Capital in Canary Wharf. David Page, the Clapham founder and chairman, said at the end of last month that the company's chains had frequently attracted interest over the years and that it had waited for the "right time" to sell. Clapham itself has also been the subject of bid speculation. Its chief executive Paul Campbell said: "While we are sad to see the Bombay Bicycle Club leave our portfolio, it is predominantly a home delivery business with a different pricing point and a longer period for return on capital than our other brands." He said it was important to bolster the company's balance sheet at the current time of economic slowdown and focus on its other, pure restaurant businesses. Bombay Bicycle Club made a loss before tax of £484,000 in the year to end March, and its assets were worth £2.4m. Clapham is taking a one-off £1.9m hit from writing off goodwill on Bombay Bicycle Club.

The UK’s POD Point, a provider of electric car charging stations, is raising £9 million in fresh funding to fund its expansion across Europe. The funding is a mix of VC investment and equity crowdfunding. Draper Esprit and Barclays Capital have invested £5 million and £2 million respectively with £550,000 coming from angel investors. A remaining £1.5 million is being raised through equity crowdfunding site Crowdcube. With this investment, POD Point plans to expand into mainland Europe and will create 50 new jobs in the UK. The company said it is aiming to have a station “installed everywhere people park for an hour or more” by 2020 through its various partnerships.

The electric vehicle market in the UK is gathering momentum, said POD Point CEO Erik Fairbairn. “The way people use cars is changing and how they are powered is at the epicentre of that,” he said. “Travel shouldn’t damage the earth, which is why we are building the most advanced intelligent charging network in the UK, the POD Point Open Charge Network.” “POD point is leading the charge in the EV infrastructure market in the UK and Europe,” added Draper Esprit CEO Simon Cook. “We not only think that the EV market will develop at pace over the next decade, but that POD point is set to play a significant role in enabling adoption.
