Engaged: rebound in sight despite losing $1.5 billion in 2020

01/03/2021 - 13h25

The Engie group recorded a net loss estimated at 1.5 billion euros for 2020. But it intends to do better in 2021 and has set itself better targets.

Elements that can influence the price of this asset:

Analysis N°1

First of all, you'll need to follow the development of the positioning and therefore the activities of the Engie group outside the French market with buyouts of subsidiaries operations, the creation of production sites or other international partnerships and in the emerging markets of India or Africa.

Analysis N°2

Engie also focuses on developing its activities in green energies just like its competitors. You should therefore closely monitor the efforts made by the group in this area and its market acquisitions.

Analysis N°3

As you probably know, the Engie group is also facing increasing competition from alternative energy suppliers who are cutting market prices. You should therefore keep a close eye on the strategies put in place by the group to counter this competition with, for example, the implementation of new innovative services.

Analysis N°4

The price of natural gas, which still represents a large part of the Engie group's income, should also be closely monitored.

Analysis N°5

Finally, you'll have to follow Engie's communication regarding its long-term strategic growth plans.

The factors in favour of a rise in the Engie share price:
  • First of all, the Engie Group is today one of the world leaders in the field of energy transition, being the largest non-nuclear electricity producer, the first provider of energy efficiency services and the second largest provider of environmental services. This gives it a head start in this particularly buoyant market.
  • We also appreciate the good distribution of the group's activities in several different geographical sectors, in particular energy in Europe for almost half of its revenues and energy internationally, energy services, N+GNL and gas or infrastructure for the rest of the revenues.
  • Of course, Engie's positioning in the European market where it is one of the leaders is another advantage since it makes the most profit in this area.
  • The organisation of the group into numerous operational entities in recent years also allows Engie to offer different services to one and the same customer and thus significantly increase its revenue sources and customer loyalty.
  • The group also manages to develop and deliver on the commitments of its strategic plans, which tends to reassure investors, as does its particularly sound financial structure and the good confidence ratings obtained in recent years.
  • Finally, Engie also offers excellent visibility on its dividend, which is also an undeniable asset.
The factors in favour of a drop in the Engie share price:
  • First of all, increasingly strict taxation and regulations are weighing on the Group's activities and profitability.
  • It should also be noted that current market conditions are particularly difficult due to fluctuations in the price of oil or gas.
  • With regard to the nuclear sector, many projects have also been frozen, particularly in European countries, which entails a risk of lower provisions in the more or less long term.
  • Finally, the Group has also shown some signs of weakness in its activities and profitability in certain markets such as the Americas or Asia-Africa.
