BOULDER — Retirement fund giant The Vanguard Group Inc. increased its stake in Clovis Oncology Inc. (Nasdaq: CLVS) to become its largest institutional shareholder.

Pennsylvania-based Vanguard bought 986,547 shares of the Boulder oncology company Aug. 30 to bring its overall holdings to 5,567,857, according to disclosures filed this week with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

That figure gives Vanguard a 10.12 percent stake in Clovis, leapfrogging the second-largest position of 10.06 percent ownership held by Boston-based State Street Corp. (NYSE: STT) State Street took that position in July, shortly before Clovis reported weaker-than-expected earnings and launched a $225 million private fundraiser that drove the company’s stock to an all-time low of $4.98 per share.

Clovis shares have rebounded to around the $6 mark due to other institutional investors taking stakes in the company, including Citadel Advisors LLC purchasing 3.6 million shares last month.

Gov. Ralph Northam recognized 22 Virginia government entities for their innovative approaches to improving the delivery and efficiency of government services.

City Council Finance Committee approves Project Sharp

Sharp, described as an international financial technology services firm, matches the profile of Jacksonville-based Fidelity National Information …

The City Council Finance Committee signed off Friday on an incentives package for code-named Project Sharp and a deal that would clear a Florida Blue parking lot Downtown for Sharp’s development.

Both ordinances, approved 7-0 by committee members, advance to City Council at 5 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.

In the proposed agreement drafted by the city’s Office of Economic Development, Sharp would create 500 jobs and build a 300,000-square-foot office building and parking structure for a $145 million corporate headquarters.

Ordinance 2019-596 would authorize $29.9 million in city and state-backed financial incentives for Sharp comprising a Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund; a Recapture Enhanced Value grant; and a city-backed closing grant.

Sharp, described as an international financial technology services firm, matches the profile of Jacksonville-based Fidelity National Information Services Inc.

The jobs should be in place by 2029, according to the agreement, created at a rate of 50 per year starting in 2020. The jobs will pay an average annual salary of $85,000.

The agreement also states Sharp will retain 1,216 jobs it already has in Jacksonville, similar to the size of the FIS workforce.

The Downtown Investment Authority board approved the Sharp economic development agreement Aug. 7.

An aerial photograph included in DIA documentation shows the Florida Blue’s riverfront parking lot at 323 Riverside Ave. as the intended site for Sharp’s proposed headquarters.

Ordinance 2019-626 authorizes the city to give a $3.5 million completion grant to Florida Blue to build a 750-space, $22.5 million parking garage on city-owned property at Magnolia, Park and Forest streets two blocks west of the Riverside Avenue lot. The city would transfer ownership of the 2.3-acre parcel, appraised at $3.17 million, to Florida Blue at no cost.

Under the agreement, the public would have access to the garage after 6 p.m. weekdays and 24-hours-per-day on weekends. It also will clear its existing riverfront parking lot for Sharp’s headquarters.

Tariff-friendly industrial project coming to Goodyear

New York-based Foundation Capital Partners (FCP) and Chicago-based Baker Development Corporation (BDC) have broken ground on a …

New York-based Foundation Capital Partners (FCP) and Chicago-based Baker Development Corporation (BDC) have broken ground on a two-building, Class A industrial project called VB/143. Located in the heart of Goodyear, Arizona, the project sits within a foreign trade zone magnet site, allowing for reduced real and personal property taxes and reduced or eliminated duty, tariff and U.S. customs reporting costs.

The joint venture has named JLL Managing Directors Anthony Lydon and Marc Hertzberg, and Vice President Riley Gilbert, as the project’s exclusive leasing brokers.

“We are excited to have picked the Southwest Valley and Goodyear, in particular, as our foray into the greater Phoenix industrial market,” said Daniel J. Slack, Principal with BDC. “The business-friendly environment propagated by the City of Goodyear and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, coupled with a continued market momentum characterized by a flight to quality from companies fleeing neighboring states, was hard to ignore.”

“The delivery of VB/143 comes at a time when many companies are reevaluating their business plans to accommodate for unforeseen trade policy shifts,” said Lydon. “In this environment, VB/143 provides a modern, interstate-oriented supply chain solution with the protection of a Foreign Trade Zone, which can be a critical benefit for operations that are vulnerable to economic events such as rising regulations or tariffs.”

Located on the southeast and southwest corners of 143rd Avenue at Van Buren Street, VB/143 includes a 213,000-square-foot cross-dock building and a 112,000-square-foot rear loading building.

The project offers divisibility down to 30,000 square feet and includes all of the modern industrial amenities such as 36’ clear height, secured concrete truck courts, insulated dock doors, energy efficient clerestory windows, robust power, trailer drops, public transportation and outdoor employee amenity spaces.

VB/143 sits within Goodyear Gateway South, a Class A masterplanned industrial park, less than one mile to a full interchange at I-10 and Bullard Avenue, just north of Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

The general contractor for VB/143 is Layton Construction Company. Butler Design Group is the architect. The project is scheduled for completion by fourth quarter 2019.

Suburban Woman Charged in Bitcoin Murder-for-Hire to Appear in Court

Tina Jones of Des Plaines is accused of going online and using bitcoin currency to hire someone to kill the wife of a man with whom she was having …

A suburban Chicago woman charged in a murder-for-hire case is expected to appear in DuPage County court Tuesday.

Tina Jones of Des Plaines is accused of going online and using bitcoin currency to hire someone to kill the wife of a man with whom she was having an affair. She was arrested earlier this month.

The Daily Herald reports Jones’ father posted 10 percent of her $250,000 bail in April.

Around the same time, DuPage County Judge George Bakalis ruled she may live with her parents in Grayson, Georgia while she awaits trial. Jones was placed on electronic monitoring and could only leave to travel to Illinois for court hearings.

Prosecutors say the 31-year-old registered nurse paid a dark web company more than $10,000 in bitcoin to have the woman killed.
