AlphaValue’s experts are worried about the lack of stocks in the Stoxx600 universe that match the requirement of “post Uber” business models: ones where capital intensity is light, where green is more than a buzzword and where businesses can bank on forever free money. As they comment “somehow, the revamped Siemens fits the bill”. Why?
Spanish business woman Alicia Koplowitz has made an initial investment of 2 million euros in wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa via her sicav. The move comes at a time when Gamesa and Germany’s Siemens are involved in merging their wind energy business.
Siemens has identified three key points which could delay or even thwart the deal it is negotiating with Spanish firm Gamesa. The most important is resolving the problem of eliminating competition in the industry, which a tie-up between the two companies would provoke. This issue could cause the transaction to be blocked.
