27 Dec 2015: Focus: Page 5: THE YEAR INFLATION DIED AND CHINA’S BUBBLE BURST

As the year wore on, some investors became restive.

At the time the deal was outlined, the financial logic of the takeover was underpinned by an assumption that oil prices would be about $67 a barrel.

They are now well below $40.

At that level, say some shareholders, the merger no longer makes economic sense.

Both Shell and BG are sticking to their guns: they insist the collapse in oil prices will not derail their plans.
