This morning Unilever reported a strong set of interim results, driven by Home Care and higher ‘In home food' products. Underlying sales growth (USG) was -0.1% vs company compiled consensus of -2.2%. The Underlying 1H20 EBIT margin of 19.8% beats consensus by 100bp. This was achieved through a cut in A&P. Unilever has benefitted from the global increase in demand for cleaning supplies driven by Covid-19 fears, and more cooking at home which drives up demand for home food products. And we believe, given the pandemic is still not fully warded off, Unilever will continue to benefit from this tren...
De la conference call de Rdos. 1S’20 destacamos: Importante mejora en el segmento de consumo in-home (~31% ventas) de Alimentación & Bebidas, con un +17% LfL en ventas en 2T’20, que más que compensa la caída del -42% en el canal de hostelería (~8% ventas). A esta evolución ha contribuido de forma significativa la mejora del negocio en EE.UU.

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...
