In this report we analyse the notable differences between the published results of phase I tests for COVID-19 vaccines even though, at this stage, it is difficult to compare one trial with another. Phase I results have been positive overall, in terms of both safety (primary challenge) but also efficacy, with all recording the production of neutralising antibodies. We think that the results published by BioNtech and Moderna lend even greater credibility to the mRNA approach. We are sti...
Nous analysons ici les différences notables entre les phases 1 publiées sur le vaccin contre la COVID-19, bien qu’il soit, à ce stade, délicat de comparer une étude à une autre. Les résultats de phase 1 sont dans l’ensemble positifs en termes de sécurité (enjeu premier) mais aussi d’efficacité avec la production, pour l’ensemble, d’anticorps neutralisants. Nous croyons que les résultats de BioNtech et Moderna crédibilisent d’autant plus l’approche à ARNm. Nous maintenons notre recomma...

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...
