The War of Two Green Deals

Another kind of deal, another kind of artist

The new European Commission intends to make its Green Pact the core of its mandate and promote a "Green Deal". In the United States, the Democratic primary is placed under the same sign. However, convergence is largely bogus, as there are strong disagreements between Europeans and Americans as well as between Americans and Europeans.

La guerre des "Green Deal"

Another kind of deal, another kind of artist

La nouvelle Commission européenne entend faire de son Pacte Vert le cœur de son mandat et promouvoir un "Green Deal". Aux Etats-Unis, la primaire démocrate est placée sous le même signe. La convergence est toutefois largement factice tant les désaccords sont forts entre les européens et américains aussi bien qu’entre américains et entre européens. lire la suite

Le duo Delbos-Senard face aux agences de notation

Serving another type of client
As expected, the major rating agencies downgraded Renault's credit rating this week and posted lower price targets. Renault's management obviously prefers to play the truth speech that will mobilize the teams rather than tell the markets and analysts what they would like to hear.
 
On Tuesday, the rating agency Moody's downgraded its long-term credit rating on Renault from Baa3 to Ba1, with a stable outlook. 
 
It sanctions the group's poor performance for 2019 announced the previous week: in the red in 2019, for the first time since 2009, Renault, which saw its sales and profitability fall, did not want to be reassuring for 2020 by envisaging a further drop in its profitability. This is the reason for the downgrading of Moody's rating, which indicates :

Le duo Delbos-Senard face aux agences de notation

Serving another type of client
Comme on pouvait le prévoir les grandes agences de notation ont dégradé cette semaine la note de la dette Renault et affiché des objectifs de cours en baisse. Les dirigeants de Renault préfèrent d'évidence jouer le discours de vérité qui mobilisera les équipes plutôt que de raconter aux marchés et analystes ce qu'ils aimeraient entendre.

Mardi, l’agence de notation Moody’s a rétrogradé de Baa3 à Ba1 sa note de crédit à long terme sur Renault, avec une perspective stable.   lire la suite

Renault va mal et compte sur l’Alliance, Nissan va très mal et n’en parle pas

How long have we been married for? (Behrouz MEHRI / AFP)
Avant que ne soient communiqués les résultats financiers de 2019 de Renault vendredi, avait eu lieu à Yokohama la veille la présentation des résultats de Nissan pour l’avant dernier trimestre de l’année fiscale japonaise et donc pour les neuf premiers mois .
Les dirigeants de Nissan en ont profité pour revoir à la baisse leurs prévisions de chiffre d’affaires et de profits pour l’exercice en précisant que lesdites prévisions ne tenaient pas compte des effets probables du coronavirus.

Renault is doing badly and counts on the Alliance. Nissan is doing very badly and doesn't talk about it.

How long have we been married for? (Behrouz MEHRI / AFP)
Prior to the release of Renault's 2019 financial results on Friday, the presentation of Nissan's results for the third quarter of the Japanese fiscal year, and thus for the first nine months, took place in Yokohama the day before.
 
Nissan executives took the opportunity to revise downwards their revenue and profit forecasts for the year, stating that these forecasts did not take into account the probable effects of the coronavirus.

FCA 2019 Results: making short-termism attractive

Handsome is not enough
FCA's results are nothing new: North America and the two flagship brands, RAM and Jeep, are doing well.
The rest is just about surviving and is tending to deteriorate without any serious attempt to stop this. Everything has been going on since 2014 as if the roadmap were that of keeping the cash machine running in the United States and waiting for the future ally to either clean up the mess, or reinvest or offer solutions to revive brands and business in the regions that have been neglected.
 
The case of Europe is emblematic in this respect. A.-G. Verdevoye sums up the situation well in the French weekly newspaper Challenges:

Renault and the Alliance: January 2020's resolutions

My name is Luca... I think you've seen me before (Source AFP)
After more than a year of very turbulent times, Renault and the Alliance seem to be gradually getting back on track. After the many departures to PSA, the arrival in the opposite direction of Gilles Le Borgne at the head of engineering could already be interpreted as a symbol.
 
The finalization of Luca de Meo's recruitment is another. Indeed, even if he will not officially take over the reins until July, with his appointment and the movements that are already being recorded in the management teams, we can already which path Jean-Dominique Senard intends to put the company on.
 
First of all, the idea that the automotive industry is an industry like any other (and where the invocation of a strong specificity would always be a form of resistance to change) seems to have faded away.
Apart from the fact that the case for the autonomous vehicle, which had powerfully served to accredit this thesis throughout the industry, is now arousing less and less enthusiasm and more and more doubt, at Renault, it is the painful experience of the Thierry Bolloré era that is leading to this return to fundamentals.

Renault et l’Alliance : les bons signes donnés en janvier 2020

My name is Luca... I think you've seen me before (Source AFP)

Après plus d’un an de très vives turbulences, Renault et l’Alliance semblent se remettre progressivement en ordre de marche. Après les très nombreux départs vers PSA, l’arrivée en sens opposé de Gilles Le Borgne à la tête des ingénieries avait déjà pu être interprété comme un symbole.
 
Le recrutement enfin finalisé de Luca de Meo en est un autre. En effet, même s’il ne prendra officiellement les rennes qu’en juillet, d’ores et déjà, avec sa nomination et les mouvements que l’on enregistre dans les équipes dirigeantes, on perçoit le chemin que Jean-Dominique Senard entend faire prendre à l’entreprise.
 
D’abord l’idée que l’industrie automobile est une industrie comme les autres dans laquelle l’invocation d’une spécificité forte est toujours une forme de résistance au changement semble avoir fait long feu.

Renault-PSA : l’un est intercontinentalisé, l’autre pas

Renault dans le rouge en France. Mais ailleurs?

Les résultats commerciaux des deux français ont été publiés la semaine dernière et, derrière l’homologie de façade que représentent la proximité des volumes (3,75 millions pour Renault et 3,48 millions pour PSA) et leurs baisses (- 3,4% pour Renault et -10% pour PSA), les chiffres viennent souligner les profondes différences des deux constructeurs. lire la suite

Renault-PSA: one is intercontinental, the other is not.

Renault dans le rouge en France. Mais ailleurs?

The commercial results of the two French carmakers were published last week and, behind the facade homology represented by the similarity of volumes (3.75 million for Renault and 3.48 million for PSA) and their decline (-3.4% for Renault and -10% for PSA), the figures underline the significant differences between the two manufacturers.
 
Thus, seen from France, one would get the impression that PSA is outperforming Renault. In most segments except B, Renault products are barely outperforming Peugeot products and the latter obviously give PSA a "pricing power" that Renault is struggling to conquer. The financial results corresponding to the commercial results published last week are likely to confirm this in February.

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance: putting an end to the myth of the Great Helmsman

Not gone for good yet? (Joseph Eid - AFP)
Last week Carlos Ghosn told us a story about Nissan, Renault and the Alliance that ended tragically in 2019. Indeed, for him, if his own trajectory broke in November 2018, then it could not be any different from that of the companies he was managing and the destiny of this fragile Alliance that he was leading.
 
There's nothing surprising about that since that's the way he's wanted history to be written for years: just as Jean-Luc Mélenchon [leader of the radical left in France] said "the Republic is me", Carlos Ghosn went repeating "the Alliance is me" and suggesting that if he was no longer there then everything would fall apart.

Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi : en finir avec le mythe du Grand Timonier

Not gone for good yet? (Joseph Eid - AFP)

Carlos Ghosn nous a la semaine dernière conté une histoire de Nissan, de Renault et de l’Alliance qui se termine tragiquement en 2019. Pour lui en effet, si sa propre trajectoire se brise en novembre 2018 alors il ne peut en être autrement de celle des entreprises qu’il dirigeait et des destinées de cette fragile Alliance qu’il conduisait. lire la suite
