>Exports juin à -35% d’où un T2 à -62% et un S1 à -36% - Après des reculs y/y spectaculaires pour deux mois d’affilée (avril -81% mai -68%), les exports horlogères suisses affichent une performance moins dégradée en juin à -35%. Au final, le T2 montre un recul de 62% après un T1 (-7%) où l’ampleur de la crise provoquée par la pandémie n’était pas encore apparente. Au final, les exports ont reculé de 36% sur le S1.

>June exports at -35%, with -62% in Q2 and -36% in H1 - After breath-taking y-o-y declines for two months in a row (April -81% Mai -68%), Swiss watch exports posted a less severe slump in June at -35%. All told, Q2 saw a decline of -62% after a Q1 (-7%) in which the scale of the crisis triggered by the pandemic was not yet apparent. All told, exports were down by -36% in H1. While the watch category had held up quite well in Q1, the overall showing for H1 highlights ...
We are forecasting an historically low H1 2020, penalised by the lockdown effects. On the basis of our H1 estimates and the full-year consensus, several stocks are likely to disappoint (Imerys and Vicat). Conversely, the full-year consensus seems to incorporate a margin for error and, possibly, potential for upward revision for LafargeHolcim, Getlink and Eiffage. Saint-Gobain and Eiffage remain our favourite stocks, particularly as the market and investors are already looking to 2021....

The general meeting is convened to approve a sale of Direct Energy, Centricans North American energy supply, services and trading business, to NRG Energy for $3.625 billion in cash (equivalent to approximately £2.85 billion) on a debt free, cash free basis. We agree that the proposed cash offer is reasonable considering the current market circumstances and the group’s needs in urgent action in light of the Covid-19 impact on earnings and unbearable indebtedness. The disposal of Direct Energy will simplify the group’s structure and will allow focusing on a new strategy enabling the transition t...
Le rapport spécial des commissaires aux comptes ne comporte aucune convention, ni nouvelle, ni ancienne. L'absence de conventions au rapport spécial est, sauf opéra on non signalée aux commissaires aux comptes, le signe d'une bonne autonomie du projet de l'entreprise et d'une meilleure intégrité économique du groupe, surtout pour un groupe familial (résolution 4). Proxinvest estime que le taux d'indépendance du Conseil est très insuﬃsant (23%). Notons toutefois qu'André Delion, membre libre de conﬂits d'intérêts potentiels, assure désormais la présidence du Conseil depuis le 22 août 2019.Quan...
