Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet tests positive for COVID-19

  Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet tests positive for COVID-19 OTTAWA — Bloc Québécois leader Yves-Francois Blanchet has tested positive for COVID-19. Blanchet says in a statement that he feels healthy and will stay in isolation at his Shawinigan, Que., home until Sept. 26. Quebec's public health rules say a person who tests positive but doesn't have serious symptoms must stay isolated for 10 days. Blanchet's wife, Nancy Déziel, tested positive for the illness earlier this week. He said he would be tested as a precaution. The Bloc leader was already in self-isolation, along with much of his caucus and other aides, after a staff member contracted COVID-19. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 18, 2020.

The Covestro share climbed in early trading via XETRA at times with a price increase of more than nine percent to a high since May 2019 - but recently the shares came back somewhat and were quoted at EUR 47.54.

On Thursday evening, the Bloomberg news agency, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that Apollo had contacted the Leverkusen-based materials manufacturer about a possible takeover in the past few weeks. The considerations are still at an early stage and a deal is by no means certain, it said. The Covestro spokesman did not want to comment on this and merely stated that there was regular dialogue about possible strategic options.

Apollo is one of the largest private equity firms in the world. Billionaire Leon Black, who founded Apollo and is still running today, is behind the venture capital and investment company. In the plastics industry business, Apollo is not a blank slate. The takeover of the Dutch LyondellBasell Industries and the subsequent exit in the first half of the decade was so lucrative for the investor that it was hailed as one of the biggest deals of all time by industry experts.

It should not be a coincidence that Apollo has been keeping an eye on the specialist for hard plastics, foams and paint additives right now, of all times. Covestro recently missed relegation from the first Dax league - thanks to a price rally that came just in time for the regular index review date in early September. Previously, the group had fallen so far in terms of market value and trading activity that it looked as if Covestro would have to vacate its place in the Dax in favor of the flavor manufacturer Symrise or the biotech company QIAGEN after only two and a half years.

Covestro was floated on the stock exchange in October 2015 by the then parent company Bayer . However, the value of the shares has halved since the beginning of 2018, the trigger for the price decline of the Covestro share was the weak business development in recent years. Because at the beginning of 2018, an extraordinarily strong period for Covestro slowly came to an end.

Above all, the weakness of the auto industry, with which the company achieves around a fifth of sales, hit the group. The polycarbonate division, which develops hard plastics, was particularly hard hit. After a significant drop in profits in 2019, the corona crisis will hit the office in 2020. After only a small profit in the first quarter, there was even a loss in the second quarter.

Covestro is therefore a strategically interesting takeover target for Goldman analyst Georgina Iwamoto. In a study available on Friday, however, she did not want to make a judgment about the probability of success for a possible takeover of the German group by Apollo. Iwamoto reminded that Apollo was blown off in 2007 with an offer for Covestro industry colleague Huntsman.
