Sodexo : Good organic growth momentum set to be under the pressure in the short term, with no margin leverage

>A solid Q3, probably the high point on an organic basis in the short term - Despite 9M sales beating expectations and a solid pace of +3.5%, Sodexo has maintained its organic growth guidance for FY19, at around 3%, i.e. the top of the initial 2/3% range. This guidance points to a slowdown in Q4 to around 1.5%e, due to a tougher comparison base (Sports & Leisure, North America) and health contract losses in North America. These contract losses are set to worsen as of ...

Sodexo : La bonne dynamique de croissance organique se tend à court terme, sans levier sur la marge

>Un solide T3, probablement le point haut en organique à court terme - Malgré un CA 9M au-dessus des attentes et solide à +3.5%, Sodexo a maintenu sa guidance de croissance organique pour FY19, à c.3%, soit le haut de la fourchette initiale de 2/3%. Cette guidance suggère un ralentissement au T4, à c.1.5%e, en raison d’une base de comparaison plus difficile (segments Sports & Loisirs, Amérique du Nord) et des pertes de contrats en Santé en Amérique du Nord. Ces pertes...

Morningstar | Mixed Quarter for Sodexo, but Still on Track to Recovery

Narrow-moat Sodexo, our best idea in food services, posted a somewhat mixed third quarter. While organic revenue growth came in above our and the Street’s expectations at 3.5%, management’s full-year guidance appears to have been taken rather less positively by investors. Full-year organic revenue growth guidance was at the top of the range at 3%; however, operating margin guidance was at the bottom of the range at 5.5%. Although a 5.5% operating margin represents little improvement on 2018, a top-line growth rate of 3% is a clear indication to us that the company is getting back on track foll...

While we were expecting a slowdown in the IT services market, the Q1 earnings releases were reassuring, with growth maintained at +4.0% year-on-year. Moreover, the leading indicators improved significantly in recent quarters, which reassures us about the outlook. The sector’s valuation levels have eased, which offers an attractive entry point and is conducive to M&A. Our preference goes to Devoteam, in addition to Atos and Capgemini for which we have revised up our target prices. - Cf....

US Congress is currently discussing how best to continue securing, or even raising, funding for the country's infrastructure. Increasing the federal tax on fuel is one of the few options to receive cross-party support. This tax has not been hiked since 1993, but mindsets are changing with 39 states having already ramped up the local component of this levy in recent years. CRH and HeidelbergCement would be the main beneficiaries. - - ...

Sodexo - January 22, 2019

After the previous General Meeting, Michel Landel retired and Denis Michuel has replaced him. Michel Landel left the company with a generous non-compete indemnity. This practice is not in line with the best practices anymore because the Afep-Medef changed, and now it recommends not giving a non-competing indemnity to the executives who retired.  The compensation policy changed for Denis Machuel, and now the company discloses the fixed compensation and the variable annual remuneration can’t be greater than 150% of the fixed compensation, which is in line with our guidelines. Finally, Proxinve...

Sodexo - 22 janvier 2019

À l’issue de la précédente Assemblée Générale, Michel Landel a quitté ses fonctions de Directeur Général de la société. Dès lors Denis Machuel lui succède. Suite à ce départ, Michel Landel s’est vu octroyer une indemnité de non-concurrence alors même qu’il a fait valoir ses droits à la retraite. Cette attribution est n’est pas ligne avec les meilleurs pratiques de la place et avec le code Afep-Medef. La politique de rémunération et la rémunération du Directeur Général ont été améliorées, permettant à Proxinvest de soutenir les résolutions 14 et 16. Enfin Proxinvest note l’amélioration du tau...

Proxy Report - AGM 23/01/2018

ITEM 4: At the end of this 2018 AGM, Michel Landel, CEO since 2005, will retire and will be replaced by Denis Machuel. As he retires, Mr Landel is not entitled to the benefit of his severance agreement. However, in November 2017, the company implemented a non-compete agreement. Non-compete agreement must be implemented when the executive officer arrives in the Company, not when he leaves it. Moreover, in this case, this agreement is put in place while Mr Landel announced his retirement (hence he lost the benefit of his severance agreement). Therefore, this non compete agreement looks like a re...

Analyse court terme - SODEXO : La tendance est haussière.

La tendance est haussière. La progression des cours se poursuit. Les objectifs sont à 95,30 € puis 102,50 €. La rupture de 75,90 € mettrait la tendance en danger.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - SODEXO : The trend is bullish.

The trend is bullish. Prices are making further progress. The targets are at €95.30 and then €102.50. The break of €75.90 would endanger the trend.

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse court terme - SODEXO : La reprise est une consolidation.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 95,30 € prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 85,30 €, puis 81,38 €. Le franchissement de 95,30 € remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - SODEXO : Rising consolidation.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at €95.30. The next target is at €85.30, then €81.38. Passing €95.30 would question the continuation of the fall.

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse moyen terme - SODEXO : Le mouvement se poursuit.

La tendance est baissière. Le mouvement se poursuit. Le prochain objectif est à 77,44 €, puis 65,58 €. Le franchissement de 102,40 € remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.
