Castle Creek Arbitrage Castle Creek's investment strategies primarily include convertible arbitrage, relative value, capital structure arbitrage, and other credit related strategies and equity-option related strategies. When implementing these strategies, the firm seeks to construct a diversified portfolio of convertible securities, high-yield corporate bonds, derivatives, corporate debt, bank debt, bank loans, distressed loans and claims, leveraged loans, equity securities and other securities both on US and non-US exchanges. In addition, Castle Creek looks to generate returns from a combination of attractive coupon or dividend yields and interest generated on the proceeds of short holdings, and, in the case of convertible securities, by trading on the underlying security's volatility or credit spread. Castle Creek also utilizes derivatives and participates in swap transactions.The firm's convertible arbitrage strategy consists of buying, selling and trading US and and non-US convertible securities, typically including hedging a portion of the risk inherent in such securities. These securities may take the form of convertible preferred stock, convertible bonds or debentures, stock purchase warrants or other securities combining the features of these securities. Convertible securities may be hedged by selling short some or all of the common stock issuable upon conversion of such securities, or by establishing \"synthetic\" short positions through derivatives and options transactions. Castle Creek uses fundamental credit research along with quantitative analysis and modeling in selecting the equity and fixed income components of investments in this strategy.The firm's relative value strategy focuses on spread relationships between the pricing components of financial assets. This strategy seeks to avoid exposure to significant outright market risk. However, the \"spread\" risk of the relative values of positions diverging rather than converging or vice versa may be significant. The Firm employs mathematical and statistical techniques and models in an attempt to identify and hedge trading opportunities in this strategy.Castle Creek's capital structure arbitrage strategy involves buying long and selling short different classes of securities of the same issuer in anticipation of profiting from a relative mispricing among them. Other credit related strategies take various different forms, including, but not limited to, buying and selling different credit sensitive instruments relating to one issuer, selling \"short\" bonds of an issuer subject to potential credit deterioration and buying distressed and high-yield securities offering favorable return profiles. The firm may also purchase units in special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) during an initial public offering. Castle Creek may keep the common stock of the related company or keep warrants and sell short the common stock of the related company.

The Tata group comprises over 100 operating companies in seven business sectors: communications and information technology, engineering, materials, services, energy, consumer products and chemicals. The group has operations in more than 80 countries across six continents, and its companies export products and services to 85 countries. The total revenue of Tata companies, taken together, was $100.09 billion (around Rs475,721 crore) in 2011-12, with 58 percent of this coming from business outside India. Tata companies employ over 450,000 people worldwide. The Tata name has been respected in India for more than 140 years for its adherence to strong values and business ethics. Every Tata company or enterprise operates independently. Each of these companies has its own board of directors and shareholders, to whom it is answerable. There are 32 publicly listed Tata enterprises and they have a combined market capitalisation of about $94.51 billion (as on February 14, 2013), and a shareholder base of 3.8 million. The major Tata companies are Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Tata Power, Tata Chemicals, Tata Global Beverages, Tata Teleservices, Titan, Tata Communications and Indian Hotels. Tata Steel is among the top ten steelmakers, and Tata Motors is among the top five commercial vehicle manufacturers, in the world. TCS is a leading global software company, with delivery centres in the US, UK, Hungary, Brazil, Uruguay and China, besides India. Tata Global Beverages is the second-largest player in tea in the world. Tata Chemicals is the world’s second-largest manufacturer of soda ash and Tata Communications is one of the world’s largest wholesale voice carriers. In tandem with the increasing international footprint of Tata companies, the Tata brand is also gaining international recognition. Brand Finance, a UK-based consultancy firm, valued the Tata brand at $16.3 billion and ranked it 45th among the top 500 most valuable global brands in their BrandFinance® Global 500 March 2012 report. In 2010, BusinessWeek magazine ranked Tata 17th among the '50 Most Innovative Companies' list. Founded by Jamsetji Tata in 1868, Tata’s early years were inspired by the spirit of nationalism. It pioneered several industries of national importance in India: steel, power, hospitality and airlines. In more recent times, its pioneering spirit has been showcased by companies such as TCS, India’s first software company, and Tata Motors, which made India’s first indigenously developed car, the Indica, in 1998 and recently unveiled the world’s most affordable car, the Tata Nano. Tata companies have always believed in returning wealth to the society they serve. Two-thirds of the equity of Tata Sons, the Tata promoter holding company, is held by philanthropic trusts that have created national institutions for science and technology, medical research, social studies and the performing arts. The trusts also provide aid and assistance to non-government organisations working in the areas of education, healthcare and livelihoods. Tata companies also extend social welfare activities to communities around their industrial units. The combined development-related expenditure of the trusts and the companies amounts to around 3 percent of the group's net profits in 2011. Going forward, Tata is focusing on new technologies and innovation to drive its business in India and internationally. The Nano car is one example, as is the Eka supercomputer (developed by another Tata company), which in 2008 was ranked the world’s fourth fastest. Anchored in India and wedded to traditional values and strong ethics, Tata companies are building multinational businesses that will achieve growth through excellence and innovation, while balancing the interests of shareholders, employees and civil society.
