countries, this is bloomberg. anchor: all right, while the u.s. supreme court handing president trump a partial victory on his controversial travel ban. the justices voted unanimously to allow a limited version to go and affect. joining us now to discuss that ruling is lori asil. narrowerore about this interpretation of the travel ban and of course, what people have been zoning in on, the bona fide ties to the amended dates and what that means. >> what the court said is that for now at least, the government can ban anyone who does not have some sort of relationship with the u.s.. that meaning a job or relative or being admitted to attend a university. people who have that type of relationship can enter the u.s.. also, three justices, clarence neil gorsuch, said
they would have voted to let the entire band take effect. betty: from now until the hearing in october, what happened exactly? laurie: as the court said, this partial ban will be in effect. it is supposed to be a 90 day ban. the government is intending to do a review of its vetting procedures during that time and decide whether some change must be made. yvonne: we did get that cbs score of the senate health care bill as well. we will dive into that later. tell us what you are hearing from congress so far, in particular, the three republican senators who oppose this health care bill. aurie: right, we just moved headline saying three republican senators plan to vote against bringing this bill up for debate this week. the three are susan collins of maine and dean of nevada, who
expressed concerns about the cuts the bill would make and medicare. the third one is rand paul of kentucky. his argument is that the health care bill does not go far enough to repeal obamacare. that is putting mitch mcconnell and a bit of a spot because he is having to find a way to appeal to people on both ends of the spectrum rather than just please one side. anchor: and as the congressional budget office, their score on the bill, going to sway it in anyway? when we saw that people were uninsured by 2026, it is one million less in the house bill. can you call that an improvement? laurie: the cbo said by the next decade, fewer people will have insurance that may would under the affordable care act. i know collins said earlier today that that is problematic.
that is the score people were waiting for. most likely, people supporting the bill were hoping that number would be lower. asseo, thank you. more later on in the program with michelle from the center for american progress. betty: up next, we are going to hear from takata's new owner. how key safety systems is this deal playing out. this is bloomberg. ♪
i am yvonne man in hong kong. betty: i am betty liu in new york, and as she mentioned, takata, and remaining -- remaining suspended today. to sell its business to key safety systems. complete this deal in the first quarter of next year. automakers may end up shouldering most of the cost of takata's lethal products, the airbags, faulty airbags. joining us now almost line for michigan is key safety systems cfo joe perkins, in this exclusive interview. thank you so much for joining us. joe: thank you as well. i appreciate you having us on today. this is an important time for the industry. anchor: absolutely one of the biggest corporate takeovers of a japanese manufacturing company that you are right in the center of. first off, we heard some of the details of the acquisition, the
movement of the headquarters, the non-closure i guess you could say of japanese plants. what about some of the executives? are you going to absorb any of the takata executive? will you be absorbing kss in this acquisition? joe: some of those details, we will work out as you go through the integration process. our communication has been very clear, consistent, that our plan is to take substantially all of the employees from takata. management talent and we view them as having a very strong and dedicated workforce, all of which we very much value. a very robust listening session with the takata team as we work to our integration plan. although we do not have specific
details yet, we plan to take substantially all of the work force including much of the leadership team. betty: the central issue here is , who is going to pay for some of these liabilities, massive liabilities, by takata? shielded by this. how confident are you that you're going to be shielded by any repercussions from this recall? joe: good crush him. i mean, look, this has been a very dynamic process. our intent in this deal has been to ensure that we ar architect and industry solution to protect supply of our valued customer base. we have similar customers between product safety and takata. in doing the deal, structuring, which has been a complex process, we have insured the transaction structure results in perfection for the new company.
it is critical in the context of maintaining supply for our customers that we have a sound structure that protects the new company going forward and we are very confident of that. anchor: can you tell me, given takata's troubles, how much has your business actually been helped by what happened at takata? give me a sense of the financial position of kss. were their direct benefits to seeing clearly the implosion at the bottom? joe: well, you know, just to that,ore context, around we see this as a merger of two very strong companies, combining the strengths of both. we are interested in their management talent. they have a very dedicated workforce. declined,usiness has we benefited from some of that. ss is a very strong,
growing organization on its own. as we bring these companies together, our goal is to take the best of both. we will be listening to our new takata colleagues, and developing a detailed integration plan. in the end, the result will be a strong global player focused on serving our customers with great delivery, great quality, great technology. this is a very nice complementary fit. it will position the combined company for very strong glue growth -- strong growth. yvonne: do you think you have overpaid for this business? chinese companies tend to have a bit of a premium when it comes to buying technology outside of the country. why wiki safety systems pay such a high premium for takata, looking at a loss of ¥80 billion. where do you see the potential? >> look, we have been through a very rigorous global process.
we have assessed valuation of the country very strategically and assessed other factors like strategic fit. certainty of closing and numerous other factors. in the end, we have come up with a value we think is very fair, indicative of where we see the overall valuation of the country -- the company. we do not see ourselves as paying a premium. we are comfortable with where we are at sue a diligent process that had left it almost one year. anchor: just show quickly, will you stop using the takata brand for all your products, and what? joe: good question. have yethe decision we to conclude on. in the end, the most important thing is to unify the companies logo.a safety some of these marketing topics
in branding decisions, those are items we are going to decide in the integration process. we are very focused currently on ensuring that we get to signing a definitive agreement over the next couple of weeks and we will be focusing on those integration plans, branding and marketing, and we will get into that here in the next month or so. anchor: i'm curious. i know that it is the early stages right now, as you mentioned. an agreement to shield your investors and company from any liability, legal and otherwise from this recall, but what could -- as you look out at the first quarter -- what could cause a wrinkle in this deal? if so, what happens? joe: right. i do not anticipate
any wrinkle. rigorousad a diligent process and are comfortable with respect to the asset we intend to buy. to solve a very significant industry issue. we do not think this lightly. this is more than just a deal to us. this is something we want to solve. we produce a safety product. takata has been through significant hard times. we need to protect the safety of the public. we protect ourre customer base through production of supplies. we went into this knowing what we needed to a conversation on this industry issue. that is what we intend to do. yvonne: we have got about 30 seconds left. what is the planned for producing inflator's for the new company?
have you been expanding supply now that takata will no longer be producing this? joe: good question. as i said before, safety is growing significantly. that, we haveh been expending our own inflator capacity. we merge the two companies. we continue our strong third-party supplier with a valued supplier was ourselves and takata. we continue to leverage that important relationship as well. anchor: joe perkins, appreciate the time. on the phonestems from michigan. breaking news out of brazil at the moment. the president has been charged with corruption according to a global report by the prosecutor general. report,after the police accusing temer of obstruction of

yvonne: taking a live look out of victoria harbour this morning. it pretty clear day out there. fingers crossed we don't get any rain. no doubt we could see distance over the next couple of days or so. betty. betty: indeed. no rain here. it is 7:30 p.m. monday evening in new york. onkets are closing, flattish the s&p. further declines in the nasdaq shares. i am betty liu in new york. yvonne: i am yvonne man in hong kong. you are watching daybreak asia p first word news with lisa
parenti. lisa: president trump says the supreme court's partial review of his travel ban is a clear victory for national security. they said it had gone too far by blocking the 90 day band. people will be banned unless a genuinehow relationship with a person or entity in the united states. the court will consider whether the executive order is constitutional. results president michel temer has been charged with -- brazil's president michel temer has been charged. in the car caught up wash. he denies wrongdoing and said on monday than of the could destroy his -- that nothing could destroy his government. italy says it will not have to save anymore banks after the last-minute rescue of two
lenders over the weekend. pierre carlo reject did that this is the intervention that regulators were trying to prevent. ,e insisted it is not a bailout but within you rules and will be the last -- within e.u. rules and will be the last one. >> we are only considering as i have said cases in which this with newin theory cases. we do not expect new cases to come out. alisa: hong kong's exports missed estimates in may, rising 4% on the year against economist expectations of an almost a percent jump. .7% in april. imports jumped 6.6% on the year, with a trade deficit. that is bigger than anticipated.
news, 24 hours a day, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. anchor: it looks like we are going to get a slightly higher asia after the mixed session we saw on wall street. reporter adam haigh in sydney with more on what to watch. msl authentec, that gained momentum that we saw in the u.s.. is that going to be a worry in asia? now, youh, i think for know, asian tech looks ok. closing at ag record yesterday. there is plenty of buybacks for that company. it is not a huge selloff. in the u.s. session, we did open fairly high. .5% on the s&p 500. about this point in the open.
i think elsewhere, interesting to see that the u.s. 10 year treasury yield is around the 2.13 level. will be interesting hearing janet yellen. i think people will be focused on that tuesday morning in europe because with the bond markets where they are and given the u.s. durable goods number overnight, it was a bit of a mess. to thes play in argument that the fed is walking them into a policy era. that is a topic up for much discussion lately. let us wait to hear what yellen says in terms of policy. we have the european central bank room and big central bankers including kuroda from the boj. we will be looking at those pretty closely. anchor: the central bank bigwigs e.l ther we also talk a lot about the explosion of popularity when it
comes to the etf showing no signs of slowing in the u.s.. goldman saying most of that growth is coming from overseas. indeed, yvonne. i think it is pretty well encapsulated if we bring up this terminal chart here on the bloomberg. just how muchg us of a year 2017 is shaping up to predictions, they to be purchases of etf more than 2015 and 2016 combined. they expect things to tell of a little bit in the second half of this year. they say that indeed the demand is coming from overseas buyers coming into the u.s. etf's, and that maybe he'd a little bit of the deficit continues to mount around the trump administration's ability to deliver favorable economic willies in the u.s., so it be closely watched i think in terms of the next few months and
how we see this purchases progressing, but certainly, just no shortage of people wanting to get into this asset class. we reported extensively on how much of a boom it has been. that shows no signs of abating as of yet. anchor: thank you. , they willith takata have to end up shouldering most of the cost of the bankruptcy with toyota and honda. they fear a bill of around $5 billion. takata is selling its business to key safety systems for 1.6 billion dollars, vastly less than the $10 billion in the claims and liabilities. discussing all of that now with robert, at the university of southern california. professor, thank you for joining us. a lot of people impacted by this just be on the secured creditors. the most obvious that comes to mind are going to be the victims of the takata crisis and the cases as well as the customers
and car manufacturers. as we look at the bankruptcy proceedings, how likely do you think each group will be compensated? robert: $1,000,000,006 seems a lot of dollars. the first $850 billion is going atgo to the restitution fund takata agreed to fund in selling the criminal liability. that is going to leave you may be another $700 million and that will go first to the priority claimants. up goingthat will end back to the carmakers, so at the theof the day, i think lion's share will go to the carmakers. the victims are going to end up probably still pursuing their remedies against the carmakers
themselves. yvonne: right. is there a way that these claimants can climb up the priority ladder? know you her the likes of honda and toyota, there are going to be provisions of this. i they sitting ducks? robert: an american law, when you are a tort claim and, you come after the secured lenders and priority claims. they are down there near the bottom. anchor: it only seems to be the case, which is very unfortunate. if you take a look at the human side of all of this. robert, how long do you think this could drive on for now? you have the end of the chapter with the bankruptcy proceedings. moving forward, could this drag on for some time? robert: from what i understand, they are going to go out and wind that up i 2020. as then, dividing up the assets , you hopeeft from kss
it goes quickly. we have seen some cases drag on for years. given that the biggest claimants here are really the car manufacturers, they are probably able to wind it up relatively thin, at least in bankruptcy terms. betty: professor, i am kind of curious a little bit about this case. it has been so unusual. you coulde closest say is the case that a similar -- in terms of the complexity to this bankruptcy proceeding? robert: the sands one of the more complex cases because they are trying to buy a worldwide company. that is what makes this very complex. this to use general motors. general motors is easier by comparison because they are able to do that solely in american big live feed proceedings. here, they are trying to thread the needle. iny are having a proceeding the united states, in japan, and
trying to grab up all the other takata assets scattered across the globe. anchor: before we go, i'm curious. we just had this conversation ofh joe pertinent come cfo key safety systems. he says he values the talent at takata and they will be bringing over pretty much all of the people, the management. how much of a risk is that? because when you imagine there's going to be more and more lawsuits, perhaps, are those executives shielded from that? and do they have any kind of liability when they bring on some of the senior managers from takata? robert: at least for the american perspective, i think are structuring this transaction wall to give them a good level of comfort and they are not going to get any of the liabilities. going to put one point is billion dollars on the table and that will be divvied up to
give to the claimants. kss has going forward, structured this will to inflate themselves as much as possible. yvonne: as legally ironclad as possible. much for joining us, professor at the university of southern california, on this takata ongoing story, bankruptcy proceedings. let us get back to the meeting between president trump, welcoming india's prime minister. security helping the agenda. ramy inocencio has the person who trump called a true friend. >> they are trying to find out if he is a true friend. it is interesting because so far, what we are seeing, as they are sticking to the script we all expected. commonssues of shared interest, democratic values. with defense, we are seeing if
there are going to be a couple deals that might drop, another ofl with the production f-16s that would move them from the united states production and india. india to himself wants buy as much american goods as possible and he really hit home this point earlier when he spoke to the press at the rose gardens. take a look. forward to: i look working with you mr. prime minister to create jobs in our countries, to grow our economy, and to create a trading relationship that is fair and reciprocal. it is important that various be removed to the export of u.s. goods into your markets and we reduce our trade deficit with your country. hop: on the trade deficit, into the bloomberg with me. i want to show you g #btv -- what you are seeing in red is basically the growing trade deficit between india and the united states.
1.7, nearly $128 billion in our most recent quarter. red you see, the more on the deficit. the top exports to india include precious metals, machinery, agriculture, and mr. trump did tell mr. modi that he was pleased that india is going to buy some 100 new american plans, potentially many going to india's jet. he wants india to sign a deal to buy american natural gas. he jokes -- let's be honest, he wasn't joking. he wants to get the price up on that before he said yes. defense technology seems to be the area of common ground. what can we expect when it comes to what each country can deliver at the end of the day? ramy: we are looking ahead to things that fly, things that , and things that shoot. with general thomas, what you're seeing is one of the drones that
san diego-based general thomas makes. there is news here that 22 guardian drones will be bought by india and the f-16 joint production with the us for potential of some $15 billion for the region. we have to wait because the official news has not yet dropped. in their dinner. a few hours yet until mr. modi has to take off from washington. anchor: ramy inocencio, thank you. we will talk more about treasure in -- about president trump travel ban. the fallout, just ahead. this is bloomberg. ♪
betty: a little more gain in tokyo. i am betty liu in new york. one of the top stories in the yards, the supreme court clearing much of president trump travel ban to take effect this week, and agreed to hear the argument in the fall. the decision gives the president at least partial vindication for his claim of sweeping power over the nation's borders. let us bring in michelle, the vice president at the center for american progress, where she covers legal issues. she joins us from washington. michelle, tell us -- in your best legal expertise and advice -- how do you interpret this, you know, this term, "bona fide ties to the u.s." what is legal entry and what is not? >> what we see with the decision october, we will see a showdown between presidential power and quite frankly, religious discrimination.
the narrow provision, bona fide connections to someone in the u.s., means any person or entity that knows someone that has a family member, a relative, but it could mean, and there are many advocates who are going to look to this, refugee into the organization, so if you have a connection to them, you are allowed to enter. there are many people who see this as a narrow decision. and are calling on the administration and many others to have the broadest interpretation possible, and one of the reasons we say that is there is a two plus year vetting process for many individuals who come to this program. women, fathers, parents, students, fleeing from the most -- from horrors we cannot even imagine any countries. having a connection to the united states often happens with working with different agencies. a numberhere will be
of people allowed in even under this order. betty: does that make this travel ban ineffective or more effective? michele: you know, that is the great question, but i think one of the things we find with this travel ban is, listen, if we go back to the words of the president, he wanted a muslim ban in this country. what the supreme court is going to have to ask itself, and what you saw lower courts all over the country speak to, it does is itxecutive order -- based on religious discrimination, and if? is it narrowly tailored to meet our national security needs? you had other appellate courts saying this was too broad. that is what we are going to see the showdown, is run to be about in october. this is just one step to get us closer to that point, and we will hear the oral arguments
later on in the year. yvonne: michelle, what happens in the meantime? this is a temporary ninety-day band. the hearing is not until the fall. could that impact the arguments on both sides? michele: it will impact the argument. something that is interesting about the decision today, you he --stus gorsuch, justice thomas and justice alito joined together -- they would have the fall dan stay in place --. there were ban stay in place. they looked to justice gorsuch. that is very clear based on the decision today that that was not the case. this is step one. we are optimistic. many advocates and organizations look at this and say the supreme of octoberhe ability to say that this is a discriminatory ban based on language and religious animus and must be struck down.
betty: i think you bring up a great point. this may be one of the first rulings we are hearing from justice corsets. look at thisf you as a proxy to how the justices and particularly gorsuch, how they are going to roll on other issues? michele: i found it so fascinating for those of us that our court watchers. when you look at justice corsets, he is going with justice thomas, who many consider to be the most conservative justice. when you think about where the ideological balance is of the court, when you think about the fact that many people said justice corsets was going to be -- gorsuch was going to be a moderate, the truth is not demonstrating that. when you look at many of the cases around religious discrimination and gerrymandering, you will begin to see that he is of course in
the conservative bloc. said were many people who that during his confirmation period, people are going to believe it, but he is showing you who he is. anchor: absolutely. before we let you go, we just broke these lines a couple of hours ago about three gop senators opposing this health-care bill, saying that should be enough to block it. your response to that, and with the cbo score, which sends a message that there is improvement from what we saw from the house bill, when one million people left that would be uninsured, will it have much sway? i worked in the senate for many years, and the cbo score often times was the make or break question for your bill. and when you look at this cbo damaging.t is you saw others like gop senator susan collins saying that it was troubling. i hope that that would give
of theo read at the end day, we are talking about 22 million americans who will lose coverage. there are countless stories of mothers, young people, older americans. americans inder nursing homes rely on medicaid, which is severely cut in this bill. i am hoping the cbo score, as these numbers continue to show that how many americans will be heard, that will give pause to members on the hill. jawando, thank you very much. joining us live from d.c. you can get a roundup up of the stories in today's edition of daybreak. go to dayb under terminals. it is available on a smart phone in the bloomberg anywhere app security can customize your settings and only look at the news, assets, and industry you care about. be sure to check it out. dayb . this is bloomberg. ♪

broaden the horizons and as a result, the private bond market is one where you can get more of that. betty: but why do they like us drilling companies? ruth: -- why do they like australian companies? ruth: it has a stable economy, a really good regulator. businesses function very well. they like the diversity that australian companies provide to their portfolio. really proves to be a good proposition for them. anchor: what are some of the risks when it comes to run into aussie companies in the private bond market? ruth: it is important to recognize the fact that aussie companies can cap public bond markets but choose to do the deals with big insurance for example to secure longer data debt.
india as a true friend of america. yvonne: this is the second hour of "daybreak asia." it is just after 8:00 a.m. in hong kong. betty: is just after 8:00 p.m. in new york. so much on tap that we have seen over the last 24 hours. our continued focus on takata. we just had a conversation with the cfo who says he has thegement -- kate in management of the company, but looking at u.s. markets having a sluggish close and how that will play into asia's trade. yvonne: that will be key, the u.s. durable goods data. some going so far. take a look at the opens with shery. was one key point, u.s. durable goods.

up on monday. what happened exactly? shery: that was pretty interesting. we are seeing gold in the asian session holding at 12.42. but take a look at what happened in london in the previous session. let's see if we can go back to it. if you see what happened in london, at 9:00 a.m. today, we saw a huge plunge. it is right here. 1.8 million ounces of gold traded in one minute. surprising given that we have seen this sleepy market in terms of gold. volatility was near record lows just before that price drop that we saw on monday. although it did recover from that. it still sat below its 100 day moving average. in the asian session and is also falling for a second consecutive day. watching gold other

they plan to move forward here when it comes to takata. how will they managed to produce enough airbags to replace all of use?still in >> that is a key question for them. one part of the strategy is to build up partnerships with other suppliers. the key component of the airbag was the inflator. that is the hard part for them to find replacement. they will be working with a rival here. they will be expanding their partnership there to increase their supply. the cfo told us a few minutes ago, they will also be expanding their own capacity to produce those so that they can keep up with demand for all of those replacement bags and the inflator is needed to supply them. has reported three consecutive years of massive losses. how can the company stay afloat to take all this liability? >> this is still an ongoing
question for them that will have to be worked out through the bankruptcy process. if you're are at a terminal, go to the takata ticker. 44 customers, the vast majority of them are automakers. there will have to be negotiating with those companies on a company by company basis about the recall. this is just getting started on the bankruptcy pass. there are a lot of moves ahead. -- major automotive use automakers have said they do not expect to get any of that money back from takata. takata does not have any money left. they have had a series of losses. the sale price was 1.8 billion compared to 10 billion in liability. that is a huge gap. they will be unlikely to fill it. betty: i just pulled it up here
on my bloomberg. you can see the 44 customers of takata. great function here. it illustrates the connection and relationship with takata at the center. yvonne: what are the takeaways when it comes to the auto and auto parts industry is now? the takeaways is that china is emerging as the larger power. look at this company key safety systems. it was acquired by a chinese company last year. now they are becoming the second largest of fire of safety related -- largest supplier of safety related auto parts in the world. that is a massive shift in the balance of the auto world's within the parts industry. that is a factor of globalization of the auto parts supply business. there is also a question of safety components going ahead. one of the reasons a company bought takata is they were
anticipating the growth of autonomous driving and the safety concerns related to that. this whole debacle underscores that they have to spread their risk by making the suppliers take some of the risk for these key safety components that when there is a recall for them, it can spread far and fast. it can involve injuries and even death. liabilities can be huge there. they will be looking to spread their risks as we extend into autonomous vehicles. yvonne: big lessons learned from this takata bankruptcy. we will talk more about takata next. the are joined by somebody who says the industry will benefit from takata's bankruptcy. betty: also president trump and the prime minister of india have both been promoting the same
yvonne: this is "daybreak asia." greg -- airbag not trade again after filing for bankruptcy in the u.s. and tokyo. they agreed to sell their business to key safety systems. we spoke to their chief financial officer about how much of, it is going to -- how much of takata they are going to absorb. >> our plan is to take all of the employees from takata. we value their management talent. review them as having a strong
and dedicated global workforce, all of which we very much value. in robust listening sessions with the takata team as we work through our plan. the substantial part of the workforce, including the leadership team. who is going to pay for some of the massive liabilities by takata. key safety systems is shielded by this. how confident are you that you will be shielded i any repercussions from this recall? >> good question. this is been a dynamic process. our intent in this deal has been achieve an that we industry solution with the goal
that we protect the supply of our customer base -- key safety .nd also takata in doing the deal structuring, which has been a very complex process, we have ensured that the transaction process results in protection for the new company. it is critical in maintaining supply for our customers that we have a sound structure to protect the new company going forward. we are very confident of that. yvonne: that was the key safety systems cfo speaking to us earlier. the group that has not been shielded by all of this is the carmakers. we have to get a look at that angle. we have a reporter joining us from tokyo. perhaps you can join the program. no matter how you do the math for the last couple of years we ite been following takata,
seems to be more likely that the carmakers are going to take the brunt of this bill. they don't expect to be repaid as we learned from honda and toyota over the last 24 hours. how big of an impact does this have on the industry? >> this is a critical step towards ultimate resolution of this entire affair. the bankruptcy and the a position -- acquisition of most by keyassets of takata safety systems is an important step to making sure the ultimate getumer for the car owners the vehicles repaired in a timely fashion. we saw the silver lining of all this. it comes toach when cost that can't be recovered for honda and toyota, that is a sizable amount. learned about ford or
gm yet. they are refusing to disclose their impact. is it still too early to wentify the lost none of still see 50% of vehicles in the u.s. have yet to be recalled? a huge amount. it is a huge liability. as was pointed out earlier, the acquisition amount is probably just a small percentage of that. resolutionwill see over time of this. is that we have a company, key safety systems, that is making a calculated that -- bet that purchasing most of takata will give them a substantial foothold into the safety market. that is the big story. that this will be the foundation of growth as they look 5-10 years into this market
as they get beyond this particular unfortunate incident. pointed'm so glad you that out. it is a piece of the larger puzzle. itscompany is creating with portfolio of companies -- a not just interested in takata alone, but they want to build an automotive behemoth. they want to be on the cutting edge of driverless cars for instance. pull up this -- whicherg function splc shows you the different suppliers and customers of takata. ford is thehonda, next biggest, general motors, the topounding out four. tell us about the customer relationship not just between butta and its customers,
key safety systems and how that might give them more leverage with these customers. >> you bring up an important part, the price of business. the base of customers that takata is quite substantial. that is almost lost in all of the discussions about liabilities. number one, it is the basis customers. never two, which is hard to replicate quickly, the takata base that this production base that takata has worldwide. my preliminary assessment is that it is pretty smart for them to acquire those good assets of takata and then grow from there with that customer base. betty: should they never use the brand takata? >> that is up to them.
but it is probably something that should be put in the past for them. betty: certainly don't want to have that legacy always reminding people. thank you so much for joining us. asia-pacific managing director at ihs automotive. yvonne: coming up next, apple hires new self driving technology. this is bloomberg. ♪

how much more of an impact is that going to have my casino operators and how they may operate going forward? reporter: it is fair to say that this policy has been in sport for a while. china was not the first to be the victim of it. in 2015 there were two south korean operators who were also arrested and served time in jail. they were released last year. at the same time, if you look around asia, there are more casinos striking up everywhere. it is clear that china is looking ahead and it wants to make sure that the growing market these other casinos see in china and china's wealthiest vips, the biggest gamblers in asia, they want to protect them and protect them market from these other casinos. you look at japan, they have casino legislation.
