Deux semaines après l’émission d’obligations convertibles OCEANE 4.175% 2022 pour 250 m EUR, Vallourec prévoit d’émettre une souche obligataire avec un package de covenants de type high yield et de maturité 2022, dont l’encours a été relevé de 300 m EUR à 400 m EUR, visant à rembourser les tirages sur ses lignes de crédit.

Vallourec : Earnings growth set to remain modest in 2017

Vallourec reported stronger-than-forecast 2016 results, with strong growth in volumes driven by the business recovery in North America. However, the group is expected to continue to generate negative EBITDA and FCF in 2017 owing to modest recovery in other regions and substantial price pressure.

ODDO : Shale oil: what might the consequences be for tube and drilling equipment manufacturers of a wave of consolidation in E&P?

The unconventional oil sector (shale oil) in the US has seen fears of a slowdown mount in the last few months in connection with the trend in E&P capex. Consolidation among sector players has begun and could even accelerate. Larger E&P players would create an environment for tube manufacturers where investment decisions are less volatile, though their pricing power might be reduced. 2019 could be a transition year with capex in North America down 5%. A recovery is expected in 202...

ODDO : Shale oil : quelles pourraient être les conséquences pour les tubistes et équipementiers de forage d’une vague de consolidation des E&P ?

Le secteur du pétrole non conventionnel (shale oil) aux USA suscite depuis quelques mois des craintes d’un risque de ralentissement en rapport avec l’évolution des Capex des E&P notamment. Un phénomène de consolidation s’est enclenché entre les acteurs du secteur et pourrait même s’accélérer. Le fait d’avoir des acteurs de plus grande taille permettrait aux tubistes de naviguer dans un environnement où les décisions d’investissement sont moins volatiles en contrepartie, peut-être...

Vallourec : Panic not!

Vallourec published disappointing results in Q3 2018, with EBITDA below expectations and, above all, significant FCF consumption. In this context, the share price has fallen (-50% since Friday), as has the bond price (-6 pts for 2019, -25 pts for 2022, -25 pts for 2023 and -18 pts for 2024). The FCF is expected to remain negative until at least 2019 and net debt is expected to continue to increase. However, liquidity will remain strong and the repayment of the 2019 bond is not in...

Si la structure est quelque peu déséquilibrée (insuffisance de long terme), ce qui est compréhensible en raison de la situation de la société, la transparence reste à saluer. La très bonne communication de la société permet de clairement établir le lien entre performances effectives et montants attribués, ce qui nous permet de soutenir les résolutions sur les rémunérations attribuées au titre de l’exercice 2018. Cependant Proxinvest recommandera l’opposition aux politiques de rémunérations des ...
