Marks & Spencer (MKS LN, BUY, T/P 365p) - Update | More Norman News

Press reports (Mail on Sunday) that MKS has started to cancel its building projects is theoretically good news as it indicates a more realistic approach to right-sizing the physical estate to take account of already-made losses in Non-Food to online and future market trends.

Marks & Spencer (MKS LN, BUY, T/P 365p) - Half Year Results - Repo Man (again)

M&S has surprisingly announced that it needs to re-position its Food Offer having previously guided to a 7% space increase in the current year. This will have a negative effect on earnings while the re-positioning takes place – albeit the company is not providing detailed guidance for 2018/19E yet - the year when the impact is likely to be felt in our view. It is clear that M&S will further have to instigate a large scale online programme in Food.

Etude l' AG du 11/07/2017

Variable remuneration for the year is not considered excessive.  The structure is weighted more towards rewarding long-term performance, though alignment with performance is not clearly demonstrated and the qualitative portion of the bonus exceeds guidelines.   Item 3: Approve the Remuneration Policy. The changes proposed to the Remuneration Policy generally strengthen the alignment between pay and performance.  However, the remuneration committee continues to have substan...
