The SGS group closed the first half of the year with sharply higher results, in line with the expectations of the financial community.
“The gradual recovery of the market, the evolution of ICT opportunities and customer demand confirm our strategic evolutions”, welcomed the general manager of the inspection and certification giant, Frankie Ng, quoted Monday in a press release.
Revenue since the start of the year stood at 3.1 billion francs, up 16.8% year on year. In organic terms, growth was 12.4% year-on-year.
Adjusted operating profit (EBIT) jumped 38.5% to 457 million francs and the corresponding margin improved 230 basis points to 14.8%. Net profit attributable to shareholders has meanwhile soared by nearly two-thirds (+ 59.1%) to 272 million.

Neuchâtel Xamax concludes its preparation matches in style. On Saturday afternoon, Andrea Binotto’s team won 4-1 against Zurich, a club playing in the Super League. At the edge of the Limmat, the footballers of La Maladière opened the scoring on a penalty from Karim Gazzetta (16 ‘). The Zurichers equalized ten minutes later to neutralize the two teams before half-time.
As soon as the game resumed, Max Velsoso gave the Neuchâtelois the advantage again by scoring the 2-1 (46e). Raphaël Nuzzolo and Mike Gomes then drove home the point by scoring the last two goals of the meeting (55e) and (88e).
After their 1-0 victory last week against Thun, the Xamaxiens therefore have two consecutive victories. This bodes well for the start of the Challenge League championship next weekend. The Neuchâtelois will play their first meeting of the 2021/2022 season next Friday at home against Aarau. / mad

Australian Alex de Minaur (ATP 17) will miss the Tokyo Olympics. He has indeed tested positive for Covid-19, Australian Olympic officials announced.
De Minaur, Australia’s top-ranked men’s player, tested positive for the virus earlier this week in Spain, where he lives. ‘We are very disappointed for Alex; he said he was broken, ‘said Australian Olympic Committee vice-chairman Ian Chesterman. “It was a dream since he was a child to represent Australia at the Olympics,” he said.
The 22-year-old had to line up in singles and doubles at the Olympics. Organizers have yet to confirm whether Alex de Minaur’s doubles partner John Peers will still be able to participate.
Other Australians tested negative
Despite the disappointment, this package linked to the result of a test is a sign that the anti-Covid health bubble protection system for athletes in Tokyo is working, Chesterman assured. All other Australian players tested negative, and De Minaur had not been in physical contact with other tennis players since testing negative after his elimination at Wimbledon in the first round, he added.
The Australian delegation for the tennis events is therefore reduced to five men and five women, including world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty and Sam Stosur, crowned at the US Open in 2011 and who will participate in his fifth Olympic Games.

Pending the entry into office at the beginning of November of the current investment manager (CIO) of Zurich Insurance, Jan Blöchliger, will continue to act as interim, said a statement released on Monday.
The Federal Council has already validated this choice by Finma’s board of directors.

Risk manager (CRO) Peter Giger will assume his duties immediately and temporarily, until a permanent successor can be identified, the insurer said in a separate statement.

China experienced a surprise rebound in its exports in June (+ 32.2% over one year), galvanized in particular by its sales of electronic and pharmaceutical products, the Customs Administration announced on Tuesday.
This is the fastest growing pace of the Asian giant’s sales since April.
And the performance is much better than expected: economists expected a slowdown (+ 23.1%), after an increase of 27.9% over one year the previous month.
The situation is in stark contrast to last year when activity in China was just recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic.
In June 2020, Chinese exports had thus returned for the very first time to positive territory (+ 0.5%) after a paralysis of the economy.
Now almost free of the disease, China was the first country to return to a pre-pandemic level of activity by the end of 2020.
‘China’s economy stabilizes and improves […] and it provides strong support for foreign trade, ‘Customs spokesperson Li Kuiwen told reporters.
The activity was also driven by an improvement in supply chains after shortages, especially in semiconductors, believes analyst Julian Evans-Pritchard, of the firm Capital Economics.
But improving sanitary conditions abroad and the resumption of activity risk being a double-edged sword for China, warns analyst Betty Wang of ANZ Bank.
Indeed, the strong demand so far for Chinese electronic products, due to the generalization of teleworking, is now likely to diminish, Ms. Wang said.
In the other direction, imports from China experienced a decline last month: Chinese purchases abroad rose in June by 36.7% over one year, according to Customs.
This pace is much slower than that of May (+ 51.1%). But the performance is nevertheless better than analysts’ forecasts (+ 30%).
As for the Asian giant’s trade surplus, in June it reached 51.3 billion dollars (43.2 billion euros).
The Chinese surplus was the previous month of 45.53 billion dollars (37.42 billion euros).
