Not giddy with excitement yet

  • 02 Nov 15

On its capital markets day in Chile/Peru, management announced some minor changes within the group. The regional structure will be optimised from 10 to 8 to improve efficiency. The business in Northern and Central Europe will be merged with Southern Central Europe. Central America will beintegrated into South America. In addition, management will merge three Asian regions down to two by the end of 2016. Management is also planning to increase the footprint in North America and China. In North America, acquisitions will be the key element to drive the expansion of the business. In China, management will shift from exports to the local market. Strong growth is expected in Industrial, Food and Transportation. In addition, the company launched a focused programme to reduce costs. One operational business model, three shared service centres across the world and a team of 1,500 employees should help to reduce the cost base by at least CHF20m per year. Another efficiency programme (procurement savings) was launched and is expected to save CHF180m between 2015 and 2017. Furthermore, the net working capital, which will remain the key driver of the operating cash flow, will be structurally improved. In January 2014, the company changed its dividend policy. The dividend of CHF65 per share is the floor for 2013 up to 2016. For the current year, we expect a dividend of at least CHF68 per share. Around CHF500m of the share buy-back programme of CHF750m will be used for share cancellations.
