  3. The Competition Tribunal has signed off on conditions under which it will allow state-owned Chinese giant Sinopec to buy Chevron South Africa, the owner of Caltex-branded petrol stations. The conditions include who will pay how much for the rebranding of 834 Caltex petrol stations.

  10. Tencent Holdings headed for its biggest weekly loss in almost two years amid concern a recent rally was excessive. The technology company retreated 2.2% as of 13:54 local time, taking its decline this week to 6.4%. Tencent’s shares have more than doubled this year, adding $274bn in value through last week. As part of a quarterly rebalancing later on Friday, the stock’s weighting on Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng Index will fall to 10% from 11.7%. MSCI’s global gauge of technology shares has slumped 2.6% this week as traders rotated out of 2017’s best performers. Cathay Pacific Airwa
