    China's Great Wall agrees to buy General Motors' India plant

    Great Wall Motor has agreed to buy General Motors' (GM) car plant in India, the companies said on Friday, as the Chinese automaker expands overseas amid slowing domestic demand. The deal, which is expected to be completed by the second half of 2020, will jumpstart Great Wall's plans to build and sell cars in India and bring to an end GM's manufacturing operations in the country. People aware of the deal told Reuters earlier on Friday that the two companies had agreed on the sale, with one of the sources adding that Great Wall is likely to pay around $250 million to $300 million to acquire the plant.

    China's Great Wall agrees to buy General Motors' India plant -sources

    Chinese automaker Great Wall Motor has agreed to buy General Motors' (GM) car plant in the Indian state of Maharashtra, two sources aware of the matter said, setting in motion its plan to build cars in the country. Great Wall, one of the biggest sellers of sports-utility vehicles (SUV) in China, is expected to pay about $250 million to $300 million to acquire the plant, one of the sources said. The deal, which the sources said could be announced as early as Friday, will give a jumpstart to Great Wall's plans to build and sell cars in India and is likely to pave the way for GM's exit from manufacturing cars in the country.

    C8 Chevy Corvette Z06 to get rear wing bigger than ZR1's?

    GM Authority credits "sources familiar with the project" for intel that the coming Z06 version of the C8 Chevrolet Corvette will "feature a massive rear wing spoiler." The 2019 Corvette ZR1 offered two wings in low and high flavors, and GMA didn't clarify which wing for the Z06, but we're going with the latter. At the same time, the wing will provide more downforce yet create less drag that the unit on the ZR1. There was no mention of active aerodynamics, so it's not clear if the wing will act automatically, or simply offer multiple positions as on the ZR1.

    Tesla stock falls after Morgan Stanley turns bearish

    Tesla Inc. shares have surged 36% in the past month amid positive delivery numbers and increasing optimism from some analysts, but Morgan Stanley threw cold water on the Tesla bull case Thursday. Analyst Adam Jonas downgraded the stock to underweight from equal weight, writing of his concerns around valuation and underappreciated risks to the company's China business. The stock is off about 4% in premarket trading. "Near-term momentum and sentiment around the stock is admittedly very strong but we ultimately question the sustainability of the momentum," he wrote. Jonas argued that the bull case in China is already priced into Tesla's stock, which has doubled on a three-month basis as the S&P 500 has added 10%. "We continue to harbor concerns about whether an auto business commercializing advanced, dual-purpose technology in economically sensitive industries could be a long-term winner in the Chinese market," he wrote. This is a risk not just to Tesla, but also to other automakers in his coverage universe, including Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co. . Jonas upped his price target to $360 from $250 in conjunction with the downgrade, reflecting the stock's big run up in recent weeks.

    How to Calculate a Bonus That Everybody Loves

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Profits aren’t the be-all and end-all of business, according to the chief executives of JPMorgan Chase & Co., the Coca-Cola Company, General Motors Co. and other members of the Business Roundtable group of American bosses.Their statement last year disavowing the primacy of shareholders and emphasizing that businesses should be run for the benefit of all stakeholders — including customers, employees, communities and suppliers —  left at least one big question unanswered: If the purpose of business is more than just creating value for shareholders, don’t executives need to be incentivized to do more than just increase profit and the share price?So-called “environmental, social and governance” issues — known by the acronym ESG — have become a prime concern for investors who manage trillions of dollars of capital. “Over time, companies and countries that do not respond to stakeholders and address sustainability risks will encounter growing skepticism from the markets, and in turn, a higher cost of capital,” BlackRock Inc.’s boss Larry Fink wrote in his annual letter to CEOs this week.Perhaps it’s time, then, that these topics are given greater emphasis in executive compensation plans. If you think that sounds borderline Marxist, I’ll remind you that Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum — a mountainside schmooze-fest for the 1% that takes place next week — has proposed something very similar.Two recent examples — one from each side of the Atlantic — illustrate why executive pay is ripe for reform.In the U.K. the former boss of homebuilder Persimmon Plc was awarded 85 million pounds ($110 million) for two years work, mainly because generous government home-purchase subsidies helped inflate his company’s sales, dividends and stock price. A damning independent review subsequently exposed the company’s shoddy construction practices.(2)Meanwhile, Boeing Co. executives were richly rewarded for increasing earnings, cash flow and the share price, but that appears to have come at the cost of a rotten corporate culture that browbeat regulators, squeezed suppliers, devalued engineering and hurried an unsafe aircraft into production without adequate pilot training.Plenty of companies already set non-financial strategic targets to align executive compensation with important corporate initiatives and customer satisfaction. Some airline bosses get paid less if planes are consistently late or too much baggage goes missing, for example. In the mining and oil industries it’s common to cut rewards if there are fatal accidents or serious injuries.Elsewhere, though, it’s pretty rare for executives to be offered incentives to achieve ESG targets, such as cutting carbon emissions. About one-fifth of the Stoxx Europe 600 and about one-quarter of S&P500 companies link director compensation to ESG achievements. For the natural resource-heavy FTSE 100 the proportion is about one-third, according to Bloomberg data.Even these pioneers tend to link only a small portion of total pay to ESG goals — typically a chunk of the annual bonus.Instead, the vast majority of more lucrative long-term incentive plans are still based on profit and stock performance, according to a recent FTI Consulting and CGLytics analysis of U.K. and Irish compensation practices. “We anticipate greater pressure from investors on companies to align management incentives with ESG-related metrics,” the authors concluded.Some companies are getting ahead of the curve. At life sciences and material sciences company Royal DSM N.V., 50% of long-term pay incentives are linked to energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions improvements. Oil major Royal Dutch Shell Plc, mining group BHP Group Ltd. and German engineering company Siemens AG have all announced plans to bolster the link between pay and cutting emissions.For some observers, rewarding executives simply for doing the right thing can seem perverse and unnecessary. They argue there's no contradiction between pursuing long-term financial success and being a good corporate citizen, although there are plenty of industries that last pretty well without being virtuous.I’m more sympathetic to the argument that compensation plans are already too complex and opaque. Unless ESG-related pay metrics are clear and quantifiable, it might be difficult to hold executives to account. “Accountability to everyone means accountability to no one,” the Council of Institutional Investors complained last year.Sometimes, though, trade-offs between profits, people and the planet are unavoidable. The climate crisis demands that a company makes investments now that might impair short-term profitability but which will position the business to thrive in the difficult decades ahead. The same goes for paying workers a decent wage, which will enable a thriving middle class. Executives shouldn’t be penalized for doing the right thing, just as they shouldn’t reap rewards for neglecting their non-investor stakeholders such as customers, staff and the public (as was the case with Boeing, Persimmon and Volkswagen AG’s diesel scandal).One way to satisfy those purists who say shareholder value trumps all might be to maintain the financial emphasis of executive incentive plans but apply a sustainability adjustment, as German utility RWE AG, ThyssenKrupp AG and others do. The formula works something like this: So you achieved your profit targets? Good. But did you do it without screwing up the planet or screwing over suppliers? If not, you’re only getting a fraction of your bonus.Of course, if the Business Roundtable’s conversion to stakeholder capitalism is to be more than just good PR, the quantum of executive pay might need rethinking too. Would an executive who treats shareholders, employees and communities equally accept pay that’s more than 100 times the typical worker? Or would they settle for less?(1) In fairness, Persimmon's annual bonus system includes "customer care" and health and safety elements. However, the long term incentive plan which produced this massive payout was based on dividends paid.To contact the author of this story: Chris Bryant at cbryant32@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: James Boxell at jboxell@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Bloomberg LP and its owners.Chris Bryant is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering industrial companies.
