Indyref 2: What's at stake for the North Sea?
Since the 2014 vote, there have been sweeping changes in both the North Sea industry and to the UK's political landscape, the two most critical being the oil price plunge and last year's Brexit vote. Companies operating in the UKCS have faced a turbulent few years as they sought to survive the downturn by cutting costs to ensure cash flow. The offshore industry has been a cornerstone of the UK economy, and will play a vital role in a second referendum campaign. Nigel Cassidy was joined by Fiona Legate, senior analyst at Wood Mackenzie to discuss how, despite the oil price crash, (pre-tax) £44 billion is still attributed to fields in Scottish waters.

How can Dubai help British businesses looking to expand international trade post Brexit?
With the final details of the impact of Brexit on UK firms still up to two years away, British businesses are already looking to expand new markets internationally. New research by Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the largest and fastest growing Free Trade Zone in the UAE, with a community of over 87,500 people, reveals that just under half (42%) of UK businesses have more appetite for overseas expansion in the post-Brexit and Trump administration era. The CEO of DMCC Gautam Sashittal is in the UK to discuss how Dubai can help British businesses looking to expand international trade post-Brexit.

Ofcom to investigate Sky and 21st Century Fox merger
Culture secretary Karen Bradley's referred the Fox/ Sky bid to Ofcom and the Competition and Markets Authority. 21st Century Fox is offering £11.7bn for the 61% stake in Sky it does not already own.

Long-term business investment set to shrink on the back of Brexit uncertainty
Research released by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) suggests that long-term business investment is set to shrink on the back of Brexit uncertainty. The long wait to see Theresa May trigger Article 50 and start Brexit negotiations has created much uncertainty among businesses, meaning they've put on the brakes when it comes to investment. Simon Thompson, ICAEW Business and Economic Spokesperson, joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to discuss the key points from the forecast.
