Saint-Gobain would be interested in the takeover of the American company GCP Applied Technologies according to Bloomberg.

Oddo indicates that if the American group RPM International would also be on the ranks, Holcim could also look at this asset.

"The credibility of such a transaction will lie in Saint-Gobain's ability to convince the market of its ability to turn around GCP Applied Technologies' profitability," the analyst said.

"On the basis of a premium of 40% on the 29/11 price, the price to be paid would be $ 2.3 billion without ensuring the success of the operation given potential contenders".

"According to our calculations, the ROCE of the three-year operation (2024) would be 7.7% for an EV/EBITDA of 8.5x (cost of debt at 2.2% and synergies at $70 million or 6% of turnover)," adds Oddo.

The analysis office confirms its outperformance recommendation on the stock with a price target of 80 E.

Saint-Gobain to drop its shareholding in Swiss chemical maker Sika
This content was published on May 27, 2020 9:01 AM May 27, 2020 - 09:01

Sika has more than 300 plants worldwide

The French building materials and distribution group Saint-Gobain has announced the sale of its 10.75% stake in the capital of the Swiss chemical manufacturer Sika.

Saint-Gobain said in a press releaseexternal link on Tuesday that it would dispose of “of its entire stake in Sikaexternal link of approximately 15.2 million shares, representing 10.75% of Sika’s share capital”, without mentioning any financial amount.

According to an AFP calculation, at the current Sika share price the transaction would be valued at some €2.5 billion (CHF2.65 billion). The result and the final terms of the private placement will be announced on Wednesday “at the latest”, according to Saint-Gobain’s press release.

Sika, a specialist in sealants and adhesives with origins dating back to 1910, employs some 25,000 people and has more than 300 plants worldwide. The group, headquartered in Baar, canton Zug, achieved record sales of CHF8.1 billion ($8.38 billion) in the financial year 2019.

Long conflict

In May 2018 Sika and Saint-Gobain reached an agreement to end an almost four-year legal disputeexternal link.

The complex deal saw Saint-Gobain acquiring all outstanding shares of Schenker-Winkler Holding (SWH) from the Burkard family, heirs to the founder of Sika, for a purchase price of CHF3.22 billion.

The dispute over Sika had been raging since 2014 when Saint-Gobain offered CHF2.75 billion to buy the Burkhard’s controlling stake – comprising just 16% of the share capital but 53% of voting rights. Sika’s board objected, and the warring sides were locked in a stalemate in what became an expensive battle in the courts and a rare example of Swiss corporate enmity spilling into the public eye.

-- Saint-Gobain today announces the successful completion of the sale by its subsidiary Schenker-Winkler Holding AG of approximately 15.2 million Sika shares, representing its full stake of 10.75% of Sika's share capital, for a total of CHF2.56 billion. The shares were placed via a private placement to qualified institutional investors by way of an accelerated book-building process.

-- As a result of this disposal, Saint-Gobain has generated gross gains of EUR1.54 billion since May 2018.

The disposal of the stake in Sika enables Saint-Gobain to strengthen its balance sheet. Saint-Gobain acquired its 10.75% stake in Sika as part of a global agreement with Sika and the Burkard family in May 2018. The Sika shares were held as an equity investment and Saint-Gobain has chosen to recognize any change in the fair value of the Sika shares directly in equity.

Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Saint-Gobain, commented:

"The Sika shareholding has been an outstanding investment for Saint-Gobain over the past two years. We have completed the sale at a price of CHF2.56 billion, equivalent to around EUR2.41 billion, compared to a purchase price of EUR933 million in May 2018. Realizing such an outstanding return on this investment is a very positive development for the Group. The proceeds from the disposal will strengthen Saint-Gobain's balance sheet, increase its financial flexibility and liquidity position in a market environment that remains uncertain. As mentioned at the end of April, depending on how the situation evolves Saint-Gobain will review the Group's shareholder return policy by the end of the year. "

Citigroup acted as Sole Global Coordinator on the Private Placement.

Citigroup and Lazard acted as financial advisers to Saint-Gobain .

They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications.

(AOF) - SAINT-GOBAIN (+ 2.68% to 33.48 euros)

The group signs its third consecutive session on the rise. It remains well oriented (+ 1.47%) over the last five cumulative sessions.


Strengths of value

- World leader in housing, created in 1665;

- Group organized into three divisions, distribution for building for 46%, products for construction (29%) and innovative materials;

- Positioning in the field of improving the energy efficiency of buildings, renovation accounting for 51% of sales, ahead of new construction (33%) and industries (16% of which 8% for transport);

- Increase in the international power, the share of France decreasing to about 25%;

- Industrial reorganization in 2019 into four regional entities - Northern Europe, Southern Europe-Middle East-Africa, the Americas and Asia-Pacific - plus a global "High Performance Solutions" entity grouping materials high performance and automotive glazing;

- Priority given to high value-added products and solutions, relying in particular on partnerships with start-up incubators;

- Local rooting of the distribution branch's operations;

- Financially interesting exit from the conflict with the Swiss Sika and purchase of the British SigRoofspace;

- Sound financial position, allowing great generosity for the shareholder (share buybacks and high return).

Weaknesses in value

- Cyclical nature of the activity, 4 / 5ths of sales being made in the construction sector;

- Difference in margins between branches - those of distribution being barely above 4%, against 11% in innovative materials and products for construction - and between geographical areas - less than 6% in Western Europe, more than double elsewhere ;

- Always low visibility in Germany and the United Kingdom;

- Negative impact of foreign exchange and rising variable costs (paper, asphalt ...);

- Disappointment of investors after slight downward revision of 2018 results.

How to follow the value

- Evolution in Europe of housing starts and building permits;

- Positive impact of the new government, especially in the energy efficiency sector (about 1/3 of sales in France);

- Mid-term objectives: focus on innovation and "new geographies" and reinforcement of local market shares aiming to generate an operating margin between 8.3 and 9.8%;

- 2019 program of € 3 billion in disposals and cost reductions;

- Exploded capital, Wendel having reduced its position to 2.5% of the capital and 4.5% of the voting rights), characterized by a high level of employee involvement (7.4%).

Chinese cement companies are upsetting the codes of the global sector. They benefit from low production costs and excellent performance, proof of international expansion. Until now, China consumed nearly 60% of the world's cement and overcapacity was pulling its prices down. But the Chinese government, seeking to reduce pollution, has closed some cement plants, causing an increase in prices. As a result some analysts consider that China is one of the most profitable markets. In 2018, prices rose by 22%. Three groups dominate the market: the giant Anhui Conch, Huaxin and CRC. To consolidate their power, they are conducting acquisitions, notably with LafargeHolcim and HeidelbergCement.
