BASF SE (DE), a company active in the Commodity Chemicals industry, loses a star(s) at the fundamental level and sees its general evaluation downgraded. The independent financial analyst theScreener just removed a fundamental star(s) for a 2 over 4-star rating. As such, market behaviour remains unchanged and is evaluated as moderately risky. theScreener believes that the loss of a star(s) merits downgrade to the general evaluation of the title, which passes to Neutral. As of the analysis date May 7, 2019, the closing price was EUR 66.58 and its expected value was estimated at EUR 70.15.
Narrow-moat BASF reported first-quarter EBIT of EUR 1.7 billion, down 24% over the year-ago period, which was broadly in line with expectations.

La société fait preuve d'une grande transparence concernant les montants attribués aux mandataires sociaux. En revanche, elle l'est beaucoup moins concernant les critères de performances des parts variables de la rémunération, qui restent inconnus. Par ailleurs, l'indépendance du Conseil d'administration est particulièrement préoccupante puisqu'il n'est composé que d'un administrateur indépendant sur six.

Il est donc proposé la nomination de 4 de ces représentants. Comme le conseil ne comprend pas une majorité d'administrateurs indépendants et que ces nouveaux actionnaires ne sont pas les principaux actionnaires de la société, conformément à notre politique de vote, nous ne soutenons aucun de ces candidats. Par ailleurs, la...
"Le 16 novembre 2018, les conseils d’administration de Groupe SFPI et DOM Security ont constaté la réalisation définitive de la fusion absorption de Dom Security SA par Groupe SFPI. "(Document de référence 2018 - Groupe SFPI) La gouvernance pourrait être améliorée en augmentant le taux d'indépendance du Conseil. Nous recommandons l'opposition à la nomination d'ARC Management, notamment pour cette raison. La société ne communique pas suffisamment d'informations sur les politiques de rémunération. Bien que les montants en ex-post soient raisonnables, il serait positif que la société s'améliore...
