    Glovo Said to Have Held Early-Stage Talks With Uber, Deliveroo

    (Bloomberg) -- Spanish food delivery startup Glovo has drawn preliminary interest from Uber Technologies Inc. and Deliveroo in recent months as the industry undergoes a wave of consolidation, people familiar with the matter said.Talks between the Barcelona-based company and potential partners have been on and off and may not lead to a transaction, the people said, asking not to be identified because the deliberations are private. While suitors have shown preliminary interest, Glovo isn’t actively looking for a buyer, the people said.Glovo is continuing to raise fresh funding and has also held early-stage talks with SoftBank Group Corp. about a potential investment, two of the people said. Glovo, which has markets in Europe, Latin America and Africa, may prefer to explore partnerships or deals on a region-by-region basis rather than a full sale, one of the people said.Representatives for Glovo, Uber, Deliveroo and SoftBank declined to comment.Delivery platforms have become prime takeover targets as startups battle for survival against more established incumbents and companies branch out into new services. On Monday, Just Eat Plc and Takeaway.com NV agreed to a 5 billion-pound ($6.1 billion) combination, less than six months after Takeaway.com spent about $1 billion on rival Delivery Hero SE’s German operations. Last month, Glovo struck a deal with French grocer Carrefour SA to make deliveries in France, Spain, Italy and Argentina.Square Inc. is selling its Caviar food-delivery app to DoorDash Inc. for $410 million, while Amazon.com Inc. has agreed to invest in Deliveroo.Click here to read more about the surge in delivery deals.Glovo, which markets itself as an app for anything and lets users request a range of products, was valued at about 850 million euros ($950 million) in its last fundraising round, one of the people said. The company is considering an initial public offering as soon as 2020, people familiar with the plans said in April. Investors in the firm include restaurant-owner AmRest Holdings SE, venture capital firms Lakestar and Seaya Ventures and Delivery Hero.Uber Eats, targeting an expansion into grocery delivery, has held talks with the U.K.’s second-biggest grocer, J Sainsbury Plc, people familiar with the matter said last month. The supermarket operator this month announced it was partnering with Deliveroo to bring hot pizza to homes in four British cities.To contact the reporters on this story: Giles Turner in London at gturner35@bloomberg.net;Rodrigo Orihuela in Madrid at rorihuela@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at gturner35@bloomberg.net, Amy Thomson, Matthew MonksFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    CORRECTED-Senegal to crack down on huge plastic waste by enforcing law

    Tired of seeing Senegal's seascapes spoiled by ever-growing mounds of cheap plastic bags, authorities plan to crack down on polluters by imposing fines and further restricting plastic use. Across Senegal, plastic containers are strewn across roads, often with goats and cows feeding on them, while rubbish can be seen floating in the sea. In Senegal, a 2015 law banned the most common thin polythene bags, but was never applied.

    Casino Makes Good Use of Its Newfound Freedom

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Usually when a company cuts its dividend, shareholders fret.That is not the case at Casino Guichard-Perrachon SA, which said on Thursday that would eliminate its dividend in 2020 in an effort to bring down its debt.The shares haven’t changed much from Wednesday, highlighting that the move was much-needed and long-overdue. It could save 500 million euros ($556.5 million) over 18 months at a time when funds are needed to reduce borrowings of 2.9 billion euros in France alone.Rallye SA, which owns 52% of Casino, had been reliant on cashflows from the company to service its own borrowings. But Rallye has been in safeguard proceedings since May, giving it time to restructure its debts. This has lifted the constraints from Casino and left it free to pare the dividend. It has already cancelled the interim pay-out.True, some minority shareholders may be unhappy at the loss of the income. But Casino had been over-distributing. They should have at least been braced for possibility of the payout being radically reduced or ditched.What’s more, it is the best course of action for the group given its aim to reduce net debt to less than 1.5 billion euros by the end of 2020. Longer term, it may also provide more scope to invest.Cutting the dividend is also better than some of the alternatives. One option would have been to do even more sale and lease back deals, which simply swap one form of borrowing for another. I have already cautioned on the property disposals it has announced over the past year.The company hasn’t decided what will happen to the payout in 2021. But the willingness to suspend it – at least for now – indicates that management is running the company for all Casino shareholders, rather than just Rallye.And that is a good thing because there are still risks for Casino.While the convoluted corporate structure has long been a worry, the operating performance has held up.But the French market remains intensely competitive. While same store sales there were better than expected, free cashflow deteriorated, a worrying sign.Also, Rallye still has a big holding in Casino. As the parent tries to deal with its debt, which stood at 2.9 billion euros at June 30, there remains a risk that some of that stake will have to be offloaded.Shares in Rallye fell as much as 3.7% on Thursday. The flipside of today’s dividend cut is that its parent will no longer benefit from the income.As for Casino, its shares have recovered since Rallye was put into safeguarding proceedings, but still remain well below their high for the year, reached in March.Thursday’s news, which included board approvals for a plan to simplify the web of listed companies in Latin America, have given shareholders a lot of reason to cheer. It helps that takeover interest, potentially from Carrefour SA, or even Amazon.com Inc., can’t be ruled out.But with the great Casino-Rallye unwinding still at relatively early stage, investors should brace themselves for more upheaval. The subdued share trading on Thursday seems to show they’ve got the message.To contact the author of this story: Andrea Felsted at afelsted@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Jennifer Ryan at jryan13@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Andrea Felsted is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the consumer and retail industries.

    Barclays sees Carrefour-Casino merger as possible, pushing up Casino shares

    "Such a combination looks potentially interesting as the new entity would become leader in France and Brazil and would be able to benefit from significant synergies," wrote Barclays. Barclays said it was difficult to ascribe a particular percentage likelihood to this merger happening, but it estimated potential savings at 0.9% of sales of the combined group, or total gross synergies of around 1 billion euros ($1.12 billion). Last year, Carrefour and Casino were locked in a dispute after Casino said it had rejected a tie-up approach from Carrefour, that Carrefour denied making.
