Changes in New Value Chains in North America

The decision to make changes in the value chain architecture in North America, in a similar fashion to how it is in the rest of the world, is made by the Board of Directors of the assembly plants. Today in Mexico there are already 14 companies assembling automobiles in the country: two American companies (GM and Ford); four Japanese (Nissan, Honda, Toyota and Mazda); three German (VW, Audi and BMW); one Korean (Kia-Hyundai); two Italian (Chrysler and Fiat) and one Chinese company (JAC), in a joint venture with Inbursa, which is a Mexican company. We’re not unaware that Audi is one of VW’s 12 brands, and that Chrysler and Fiat are the same company, but in both cases, in Mexico, they have been legally registered as separate firms.

The production of these companies, which favors their country of origin, in Mexico, in 2019, can be seen in the following table:

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

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-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. read more

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.

Et si Bruno Le Maire s’inspirait de Donald Trump…

In the port of Tanger Med, low-cost Renault await...

Autoactu publiait vendredi deux articles qui, involontairement, se renvoyaient l’un à l’autre.
 
L’un, signé de Laurent Bodin, traitait du sort de l’usine terminale PSA de Mulhouse qui a vu partir la production du nouveau 2008 vers l’Espagne en vertu de la doctrine bien connue désormais selon laquelle les sites français n’ont pas à assembler de véhicules des segments A et B, fussent-ils des SUV. 
L’autre, signé de Bertrand Rakoto, analysait le volet automobile du nouvel accord de libre-échange entre les Etats-Unis, le Canada et le Mexique et les contraintes qu’il impose aux constructeurs pour limiter la mise en concurrence entre les pays à hauts salaires et les pays à bas salaires et les délocalisations vers le Mexique.

What if Bruno Le Maire was inspired by Donald Trump...

In the port of Tanger Med, low-cost Renault await...

The weekly column by Bernard Jullien is also on www.autoactu.com.

Last Friday Autoactu released two articles that unintentionally referred to each other.
 
One, signed by Laurent Bodin, dealt with the fate of PSA's Mulhouse assembly plant, which saw the production of the new 2008 model leave for Spain under the now well-known doctrine that French sites should not assemble vehicles from segments A and B, even if they are SUVs.
The other, signed by Bertrand Rakoto, analysed the automobile component of the new free trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico and the constraints it imposes on manufacturers to limit competition between high-wage and low-wage countries and relocation to Mexico.

Toyota et Honda : différents mais solides

Looks like a no-deal

En ce mois de novembre, nous parviennent les résultats financiers des constructeurs japonais pour le premier semestre de leur exercice qui se clôt fin mars. En attendant ceux de Nissan qui ne seront rendus publics que cette semaine, on peut se pencher sur ceux de Toyota et Honda qui révèlent d’ores et déjà l’inégale exposition des uns et des autres au reflux de la demande mondiale qui se précise.

Toyota et Honda : different but strong

Looks like a no-deal
This November, we receive the financial results of Japanese automakers for the first half of their fiscal year, which ends at the end of March. Awaiting of Nissan, which will only be made public this week, we can look at those of Toyota and Honda, which already reveal the unequal exposure of Japanese carmakers to the decline in global demand that is now taking shape.
 
From this point of view, Toyota impresses by posting increasing volumes, sales and results.
Toyota sold 4.64 million vehicles from April to September, 220,000 more than last year. Its turnover increased by 600 billion yen (almost 5 billion euros), i.e. by 4%, and its operating income by 140 billion yen (1.16 billion euros, +11%). Its operating margin was 8.6% of turnover for the first half of the previous year, compared to 9.2% for the first six months of 2020.

PSA-FCA: Sergio's ghost is hovering over the deal

Some in the industry need a haircut

As the exact terms of the deal being negotiated and the reactions of the markets become clearer, the scope of this 50-50 appears a bit different from "parity". Indeed, the financial community is calculating, on the basis of the respective valuations of the two groups before the announcement of the project and the operations that will be carried out before the deal, that we would rather be at 60-40 for the benefit of PSA, and that PSA therefore is agrees for the deal to be made at a significant sacrifice. read more

PSA-FCA : l'ombre de Sergio plane sur l'opération

Some in the industry need a haircut
A mesure que se précisent les termes exacts du deal en cours de négociation et les réactions des marchés, les contours de ce 50-50 paraissent un peu moins "paritaires". En effet, les financiers calculent sur la base des valorisations respectives des deux groupes avant l’annonce du projet et des opérations qui vont être conduites avant le deal que l’on serait plutôt à 60-40 au profit de PSA et que PSA consent donc pour que le deal se fasse à un important sacrifice.
En effet, à la clôture de mercredi soir, la capitalisation de PSA s'élevait à 23,19 milliards d'euros quand celle de FCA s'établissait à 18,22 milliards d'euros. On a appris que, avant la réalisation de l’opération, FCA distribuerait à ses actionnaires un dividende exceptionnel de 5,5 milliards d’euros, ainsi que sa participation dans Comau estimée à 250 millions d'euros.
