The case for a K-shaped recovery, where the world belongs to the industries of the future (growth), mainly digital and technological, and the “old world” is destined for relegation (value), is attractive. Yet the recent correction in tech stocks serves as a reminder that the die is not cast. There can be no new world without the help of the old (no booking.com without hotels). The latter is waiting for a COVID-19 vaccine to revive it. When it comes, the old world will benefit in full ...
La thèse de la reprise en K est attrayante : le monde appartiendrait aux industries du futur (la croissance), essentiellement digitales et technologiques, avec un « vieux monde » condamné à la relégation (la value). Mais la récente correction des valeurs technologiques nous rappelle que la messe n’est pas dite. Pas de nouveau monde sans le concours de l’ancien (ex pas de Booking.com sans hôtels). Ce dernier attend pour se réveiller la piqûre du vaccin COVID-19. Il profitera alors à pl...
>No breaking news, but a sentiment of excellent control - STMicroelectronics held the first part of its dematerialised capital market day, which will be split into four separate meetings, yesterday. This first meeting focused on the Microcontrollers and Digital IC group (MDG) division. Though little was disclosed in the way of new information, we came away with the positive sentiment that the group should continue to benefit from the position that it has built in mic...

First of all, ECGS strongly endorses the strategic rationale of the (proposed) unification. It acknowledges the increased strategic flexibility and enhanced corporate governance in terms share structure and applicable regulators. Despite that the unification offers some corporate governanc...
Items 3 and 4: Remuneration report and policy Our concerns regarding the excessive short-term incentive overwhelm the positive features of the Hargreaves Lansdown's remuneration such as acceptable quantum and the payout adequately aligned with performance. We strongly disagree with any remuneration weighted more towards rewarding short-term performance and any LTI awards without performance conditions. Item 21: Amend the Hargreaves Lansdown Sustained Performance Plan 2017 We do not consider the proposed plan conditions satisfactory: ECGS strongly believes that the executive LTI should be su...
In general, Colruyt is compliant with the Belgian regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of an Extraordinary General Meeting. Under ITEM II.3, the board of directors seeks authorisation to increase the Company's share capital to issue shares to its employees. As a matter of principle, ECGS generally favours employee stock ownership plans since such plans help to align the interests of employees with those of their companies. However, since the authority requested is not conform to its guidelines, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE. In ECGS' view, ITEMS II.4 - II.8 are enabling r...
