Telstra completes $454 million sale of Sensis

Telstra sold a 70 per cent stake in Sensis to Platinum Equity

Comments

Telstra has completed the $454 million sale of a 70 per cent stake in Sensis to Platinum Equity.

This followed the recent confirmation by the Foreign Investment Review Board that it had no objections to the sale.

Telstra first announced the deal on January 13.

The sale excludes the voice services business, which is retained by Telstra.

In addition there are economic benefits to Telstra from the services it will continue to provide to Sensis.

Telstra expects to book an accounting loss on Sensis of approximately $150 million, of which $100 million was booked in the December 2013 half year results.

The balance of the loss which remains subject to completion adjustments will be accounted for in the second half of FY14.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
