    BASF says second half will be better after weak start to 2019

    German chemicals giant BASF expects to eke out some profit growth in 2019 as it banks on business to perk up with car production in the latter half of the year and on benefits from ongoing cost cuts. BASF, which held its annual shareholder meeting on Friday, reported a drop in first-quarter operating profit of 24 percent, hurt by weakness in the firm's basic chemicals business and a slump in prices for materials used in polyurethane foams. The maker of petrochemicals, coatings, catalytic converters and foams, said it still aims to grow operating profit this year at the lower end of a 1-10 percent range from 6.35 billion euros in 2018, despite analyst predictions of a decline in full year earnings.

    European shares edge up, aided by banks, Adidas

    European shares ticked higher on Friday, helped by gains among banks and Germany's Adidas, one day after the regional index suffered its worst loss in six weeks. Adidas led the benchmark as shares in the sportswear maker rose about 7 percent after it reported a rise in quarterly net profit thanks to high-margin ecommerce even as overall sales growth slowed. Bank stocks rose half a percent, supported by a 1.8 percent rise in the London-listed shares of HSBC Holdings PLC after the lender beat quarterly profit estimates, bolstered by a surge in income from its core Asian business.

    BASF Weathers Chemical-Market Dip From Car Industry

    BASF SE said profit growth this year will be at the low end of its forecast, testing Chief Executive Officer Martin Brudermueller’s plan to make the world’s biggest chemicals maker more nimble. Brudermueller marked his first year in charge with a reorganization of BASF’s businesses spanning basic plastics to genetically modified seeds. “It’s still too early to say what kind of test Brudermueller will see as he enters his second year,” said Mustaq Rahaman, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

    Germany's BASF sees higher 2019 revenues and earnings, lifting shares

    BASF expects revenues and earnings to rise this year as recent acquisitions help it cope with a slowing global economy and trade tensions, the German company said on Tuesday, sending its shares five percent higher. Fourth-quarter operating profit plunged almost 60 percent to 630 million euros (£543 million) as the firm's basic chemicals business was hit by a slump in prices for isocyanate - used in making polyurethane polymers and foams - and supply disruptions. Brudermueller is under pressure from investors to show a decline in the company's basic chemicals business, which makes materials for products such as heat insulation foams and coatings, can be offset by growth in more advanced products such as pesticides, catalysts and engineering plastics.

    Germany's BASF fourth-quarter EBIT slumps on lower earnings from basic petrochemical unit

    German chemicals group BASF reported a nearly 60 percent drop in fourth-quarter operating profit on Tuesday, due to a sharp decline in earnings at its basic petrochemical-making unit. Fourth-quarter group earnings before interest and tax plunged 59 percent to 630 million euros ($715.37 million), above the average analyst estimate of 598 million euros in a Reuters poll.

    Belgium tax break for BP, others, upheld by EU court

    LUXEMBOURG/BRUSSELS, Feb 14 (Reuters) - BP, BASF and more than 30 other multinationals stand to benefit after EU judges overturned an order demanding Belgium revoke a tax break. The European Commission failed to prove that the Belgian tax break constituted aid, said the ruling by the General Court, the lower branch of the Court of Justice in Luxembourg. "The Commission wrongly considered that the Belgian system relating to the excess profit of multinational companies constituted an aid scheme," it said.

    France key as Germany fights EU rules that threaten Nord Stream 2

    PARIS/BERLIN, Feb 7 (Reuters) - Germany is pressuring other European capitals to block an EU proposal to regulate Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline ahead of a key meeting on Friday, diplomatic sources said, but may fail to convince France, threatening the project's construction. The European Union executive wants to extend its internal energy market laws to offshore gas pipelines to have a say over the new gas link under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.
