SenseoEdit

Would Senseo count as a joint venture?

Overall StructureEdit

It seems like quite a few people have worked hard on this article to bring in so many different facts. Maybe it's time now to trim it down and create a definite structure? A few things that I would suggest; (1) Separate out JVs in India and China from the main article and into new articles - JVs in India and China are no more unique than JVs in Brazil or Russia, or in any OECD country and therefore I don't feel they should be emphasized particularly in a general article on JVs. (2) Create a structure out of definition (ie; what is a JV?) and execution (ie; what are the processes in order to get to a JV). Just a thought. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.64.228.97 (talk) 12:47, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

First ParagraphEdit

Current text reads: "It is a term more restricted to the US and the 'new' countries on the world map such as India and China." I suggest that this line be removed. The term Joint Venture, as far as I know from my merger & acquisitions experience, is a standard term wherever English is used as a business language. In addition even putting 'new' in brackets (I assume this implies 'BRIC' or 'developing' country) does not make China & India new countries. If there are countries where the term Joint Venture is not used, then perhaps we should reference those terms here instead. ~

Added InfineumEdit

I added Infineum into the list of JVs. Infineum is a 50-50 JV between ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 219.74.15.236 (talk) 14:35, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Not a JVEdit

  • The example shown in the second paragraph which number of partners is more than two is a consortia more than a JV, according to Bernard L. Simonin in his Transfer of Knowledge of International Strategic Alliances: A Structural Approach, isn't it?--Bellenion 03:38, 23 October 2005 (UTC)
  • Where is the authorship of this section coming from? It looks like people making up things that sound logical to themselves?????? Who exactly are the people supplying most of this text?
  • In the lead section, there is a short list of examples of joint ventures. That list includes Sony Ericsson. Sony Ericsson was indeed a joint venture, but Sony bought Ericsson's share (completed in 2012), so it's no longer a joint venture, and the name has changed accordingly. See Sony Mobile Communications. Oaklandguy (talk) 02:45, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Implied JVEdit

  • Under what circumstances may a JV be implied?

Populated / Non-PopulatedEdit

Has anyone heard of the distinctions between a Populated and Non-populated JV? Are there legal ramifications for each?

Difference between JV and Consortium?Edit

Please, explain what is the difference between JV and Consortium. --V111P 05:07, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Answer: Contrary to what the text of this entry may imply, there is no difference. Probably these two sections should be merged.

Answer: Agreed there is no real difference as regards objectives of the parties but in English a JV is normally applied to where two companies form a (normally 50:50 shareholding) joint venture to achieve a business objective, whereas a consortium is normally applied to where more than two parties come together. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.254.146.52 (talk) 16:11, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Spam link?Edit

I just followed that last external link and it seems to be spam. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.99.58.191 (talk) 15:01, August 20, 2007 (UTC)

How is ClickBank considered as a good place for finding JV? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.170.90.2 (talk) 07:56, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

Joint Venture in Construction Industry.Edit

Do you all think that joint venture in construction industry is common now. it is to help one of another partnership to improve the productivity and gain the maximum of self benefit. any idea? for example there are cases like a company would supply the labour due to their expertise and experient in a project and the other parnership would help in financial.

Order of sectionsEdit

The Chapter of "Shareholders Agreement" has to come before the Chapter of "incorporation"; the first is my input; That of "Incorporation" is a joint effort. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ipsofacto (talkcontribs) Ipsofacto (talk) 09:33, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

I have been contributing to this article and propose to add two more sections one covering India and one on Articles of AssociationIpsofacto (talk) 16:27, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Finding new ideas or partnersEdit

This whole "finding new ideas or partners" section is really nonencyclopedic in tone, and that's before considering the poor grammar and usage. I don't think it really fits in with the article and should be entirely removed. Can I go ahead and remove it? Should it be rewritten? 164.107.234.119 (talk) 01:54, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

  • I'd remove it. I don't think rewriting it makes it more encyclopedic (but this whole article is poorly done and needs to be rewritten). -- DS1953 talk 22:47, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Interests in Joint Ventures IAS 31Edit

The following information covers the links to guidance on the disclosures in the notes to the financial statements with respect to Joint Ventures. Although IAS 31 was superceded in May 2011 and was replaced by IFRS 11, over the years the development of joint ventures in countries where International Accounting Standards were adopted would have been guided by the standard which was relevant at the time.

"IAS 31 Interests in Joint Ventures sets out the accounting for an entity's interests in various forms of joint ventures: jointly controlled operations, jointly controlled assets, and jointly controlled entities. The standard permits jointly controlled entities to be accounted for using either the equity method or by proportionate consolidation." http://www.iasplus.com/en/standards/ias/ias31

12 May 2011 IAS 31 is superseded by IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements and IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities effective 1 January 2013

IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements outlines the accounting by entities that jointly control an arrangement. Joint control involves the contractually agreed sharing of control and arrangements subject to joint control are classified as either a joint venture (representing a share of net assets and equity accounted) or a joint operation (representing rights to assets and obligations for liabilities, accounted for accordingly). IFRS 11 was issued in May 2011 and applies to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013." http://www.iasplus.com/en/standards/ifrs/ifrs11 Jennifer Natalie (talk) 01:37, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
