  • Francis Lawrence

“When Jacob Jankowski, recently orphaned and suddenly adrift, jumps onto a passing train, he enters a world of freaks, drifters, and misfits, a second-rate circus struggling to survive during the Great Depression, making one-night stands in town after endless town. A veterinary student who almost earned his degree, Jacob is put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie. It is there that he meets Marlena, the beautiful young star of the equestrian act, who is married to August, the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. He also meets Rosie, an elephant who seems untrainable until he discovers a way to reach her. Water for Elephants is illuminated by a wonderful sense of time and place. It tells a story of a love between two people that overcomes incredible odds in a world in which even love is a luxury that few can afford.”

Deutsche Bank underwrites SAP's acquisition financing - sources

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) has underwritten 7 billion euros (5.50 billion pounds) in loans to back German business software maker SAP's (SAPG.DE), $7.3 billion acquisition of US-based expense management software firm Concur Technologies (CNQR.O), sources close to the deal said. Deutsche Bank is the sole underwriter and adviser on the loan and it is the biggest underwrite by a single bank for a European loan so far this year, according to Thomson Reuters LPC data. SAP has a good track record for repaying acquisition debt quickly through cash flow and bond issuance. The company then agreed a 2.4 billion euro term loan in May 2012 to back its acquisition of Ariba that was fully repaid by December 2012, while its acquisition of hybris in June 2013 was backed with a 1 billion euro term loan that fully repaid by December 2013.
