GUADALUPE PHILLIPS PRESENTED On September 9, a lawsuit against Ocesa and against whoever is responsible in the Bank of Mexico (Banxico).
The granddaughter of Dolores Olmedo, the collector of the work of Diego Rivero and Frida Kahlo, initiated legal action for the exhibition of the replicas of some of the latter’s paintings at the Frontón México.
For weeks the dispute has been discussed amicably with the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) as arbitrator, led by Alfredo Rendón.
But it has already climbed to another level.
The director of ICA decided to open fire against Alejandro Soberón’s entertainment company and against the institute that Alejandro Díaz de León governs for being unduly profitable.
The tip of the iceberg is the show “Frida, the Immersive Experience” that is presented at the Frontón México. From there, a count of irregular agreements that entail undue profit would begin.
And so far, Banxico has not proven having the will in which Diego Rivera empowers the institution to exploit the rights of the work of the Mexican painter and his wife.
The legal director, Luis Urrutia, has practically the remainder of the month to prove that he has the power to grant contracts for the exploitation of Frida’s work, as long as he presents the will.
The financial expert, on behalf of the Phillips Olmedo family, assures that at least two of the works exhibited at the Frontón Mexico are not part of the Banco de Mexico trust.
Ocesa has a contract granted by the Banxico trust, but needs Rivera’s will to give legal weight to the vehicle, and the document does not appear anywhere.
If it is not presented to the competent authorities, Banco de México could face responsibilities for the management of Frida Kahlo’s legacy.
At the end of the 1950s, Diego Rivera transferred the copyrights to his 149 works and the 29 to his wife, Frida, to a trust that would run the Dolores Olmedo Museum.
GO REVIEW YESTERDAY that of Javier Lomelín and his Fibra HD team. Gustavo Tomé’s merger with Fibra Plus is getting good. He just said that the latter came out with his purchase offer by putting an exchange factor that the counterpart rejected because it was not fair and was outside the market parameters. VACE Partners, led by Carlos Vara and Ricardo Cervera, reached the above conclusion as Lomelín bankers. Yesterday, it blocked Tomé’s offer after Fibra HD’s technical committee agreed to modify the contract subjecting the exchange factor to be managed in a range of 1.89 to 2.33 titles and not from 2.60 to 2.62. It is sought at all costs to avoid a take over of Fibra Plus.
THE GOVERNMENT OF State of Mexico, commanded by Alfredo del Mazo Maza, today receives offers for the Chalco-Santa Martha trolleybus. It is a work that will cost about three billion pesos and for which nine companies have already raised their hands. Point to ICA by Guadalupe Phillips, HYCSA by Alejandro Calzada, La Peninsular by Carlos Hank Rhon, Alfa by José Abed, Mota-Engil by José Miguel Bejos, General Contractor for Latin America by Hilario Orozco, Jaguar by Moisés Zecua, GAMI by Manuel Muñozcano and VISE by Santiago Villanueva. Del Mazo and his Secretary of Mobility, Luis Gilberto Limón, gave practically no time to structure the offers. All asked for an extension, except GAMI and VISE.
DIAVAZ, LA EMPRESA led by Luis Vázquez Sentíes, is another Pemex contractor who also continues to believe in the projects of the agronomist Octavio Romero. The company has just won a contract of nine billion pesos. Right now it is raising capital to support it. The service provider applied to the bank for a $ 50 million bridge loan payable over the next three years. Nacional Financiera, led by Juan Pablo de Button, was asked for 30 million, and the rest is asking Santander, from Héctor Grisi, and Banco del Bajío, from Salvador Oñate.
OTHERS WHO WALK seeking capitalization, in this case 30 million pesos, are those of Libertad Servicios Financieros, chaired by Silvia Lavalle. The National Banking and Securities Commission, led by Juan Pablo Graf, made them a new location to strengthen their capital structure. The intermediary does not recover from the political coup that the arrest and detention of its president, Juan Collado, meant. Everything seems to indicate that Libertad will seek to get out of its insolvency circumstance by its own powers. Not long ago I told you that Julia Collado took control. With this, the sale is ruled out at least in the short term of the company.
SINCE THE YEAR after the SAT of Raquel Buenrostro, the FIU of Santiago Nieto and the Attorney General’s Office of Carlos Romero were following in the footsteps of Alvarez Puga y Asociados. On Friday, the arrest warrant was issued against Víctor Manuel Álvarez Puga. The businessman is considered one of the largest invoices in the country. For months he had been negotiating a reparatory agreement with the now former Legal Counsel of the Presidency, Julio Scherer. They put Guillermo Barradas as a lawyer, the same one who appears in the cases of the Cruz Azul Cooperative, the Jenkins Foundation and Oro Negro.
