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. read more

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.   read more

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.
