Data collected by analytics company Canalys in its report for the second quarter of 2021 shows that Xiaomi has been by far the company with the highest annual growth, with 83%. In addition, it has positioned itself in second place by market share, with 17%, surpassing for the first time Apple, which has only 14% and which has now moved to third place. However, the market leader is still Samsung , although this leadership could be snatched soon by Xiaomi. The South Korean giant, with a 19% market share, grew only 15%, a number well below the 83% of the Chinese company. If it maintains this growth rate, the Chinese corporation can be expected to outperform the South Korean conglomerate in a short time.According to Stanton, the main objective of the Chinese company is to have affordable prices to be able to massively cover the entire market. Their prices reflect these targets, as the average cost of Xiaomi smartphones is 40% lower than Samsung’s and 75% lower than Apple’s. This has undoubtedly contributed to its increase in market share. For the company, obtaining second place is a “fantastic achievement and also an important milestone in the history of Xiaomi,” said Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, in A letter to employees.Other companies that could displace Apple from third place, which grew only 1%, are Oppo – which currently has a 10% share and 28% growth – and Vivo – also with 10% and 27% growth—. Both companies are based in China and are subsidiaries of the multinational BBK Electronics.

Xiaomi, a company that until a few years ago was unknown in the smartphone market, could be on its way to becoming the undisputed leader in this segment. The Chinese company has surpassed Apple in market share for the first time in history after having an impressive growth of 83%.

The data collected by the analytics company Canalys in their report for the second quarter of 2021 show that Xiaomi has been by far the company with the highest annual growth, with 83%. In addition, it has positioned itself in second place by market share, with 17%, beating Apple for the first time, which has only 14% and has now moved to third place.

However, the market leader is still Samsung, although this leadership could soon be snatched by Xiaomi. The South Korean giant, with a 19% market share, grew only 15%, a number well below the 83% of the Chinese company.

If it maintains this growth rate, the Chinese corporation can be expected to overtake the South Korean conglomerate in a short time.

“Xiaomi is developing rapidly abroad. For example, its shipments increased by more than 300% in Latin America150% in Africa and 50% in Western Europe, “said Ben Stanton, manager of Canalys.

According to Stanton, the main objective of the Chinese company is to have affordable prices to be able to cover the entire market massively. Their prices reflect these objectives, since the average cost of the smartphones Xiaomi is 40% lower than Samsung’s and 75% lower than Apple’s. This has certainly contributed to its increase in market share.

For the company, getting second place is a “fantastic achievement and also an important milestone in Xiaomi’s history”, he pointed Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, in a letter to employees.

Other companies that could displace Apple, which grew only 1%, from third place are Oppo – which currently has a 10% share and 28% growth – and Vivo – also with 10% and 27% growth. Both companies are based in China and are subsidiaries of the multinational BBK Electronics.

Xiaomi invests more and more in chips to become independent from the US

Can caregivers who refuse vaccination get unemployment if they are made redundant?

If the caregivers refuse the vaccination, they can be dismissed “after a few months”, warned the Minister of Health Olivier Véran. In this case, the question of their right to unemployment benefits arises.

Caregivers were among the first populations to be able to access vaccination, but some professions are still reluctant to receive their two injections. According to figures communicated by the Ministry of Health, only 55% of healthcare professionals in nursing homes and long-term care units have received at least one dose. Faced with this sluggishness, the government has decided to tighten the screws: Monday evening, Emmanuel Macron thus indicated that vaccination would be necessary for all caregivers. The government brandishes the threat of dismissal in case of refusal. For recalcitrant caregivers therefore quickly arises the question of the conditions and consequences of these dismissals: will they be entitled to compensation?

Concretely, caregivers have until September 15 to decide and decide whether or not they want to be vaccinated, according to the details of the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran: “from September 15, if you are a caregiver and you are not vaccinated, you will no longer be able to work and you will no longer be paid“, He thus indicated the same evening on the set of LCI. Vaccination will be controlled by employers, regional health agencies, school management or even health insurance.

Dismissal for misconduct

Controls, and sanctions. If it turns out that a caregiver has not been vaccinated and refuses to receive the injections, he may be suspended from the employment contract – and therefore, his salary – for a period ranging from “un at six months”, According to details communicated by the Minister of Labor, Élisabeth Borne. If the employee persists in his refusal to be vaccinated, he then risks a “layoff“Of a few days, even a”dismissal».

However, the government did not specify for which “fault»The dismissal would be pronounced before the law. There are different types of faults recognized in law: simple fault (repeated absences, for example), serious fault (a violation of the obligations of the employment contract) and gross fault (a fault intentionally aimed at harming the employer) . However, only these last two categories can be preceded by a layoff as soon as the employer becomes aware of the fault, it is therefore necessary to consider that it is one of them which will be invoked in the event of refusal of the vaccination. .

In both cases, the dismissal gives the employee the right to unemployment benefit, explains Isabelle Mathieu, lawyer specializing in labor law at Daem Partners. “Dismissal for serious misconduct, as well as for gross negligence or even abandonment of post (a dismissal that follows a long period during which has not reported for work) are currently followed by compensation.», Explains the lawyer. Indeed, in accordance with article 5421-1 of the Labor Code, employees involuntarily deprived of employment – this is the case of caregivers – or whose contract has been conventionally terminated are entitled to this allowance.

In the event of dismissal for serious misconduct or gross negligence, the employee will not however be able to receive the severance pay and the compensation for notice. A dismissal is therefore not without financial risks, all the more so if we take into account the potential period of layoff, which deprives the employee of his salary, and which does not entitle him to unemployment.

10,000 local jobs: partnership with Amazon strengthens Austrian SMEs

Luxembourg (OTS)

  • The Amazon SME Report 2021 shows that small and medium-sized companies from Austria sold a total of more than 15 million products via the Amazon Marketplace in the period from January 1 to December 31, 2020. That is 3 million products more than in the previous year (plus 25 percent).
  • On average, Austrian SMEs that sold on Amazon achieved a turnover of more than 250,000 euros (previous year: 190,000 euros). 25 SMEs cracked the 1 million euro turnover mark for the first time in 2020.
  • In total, more than 2,000 Austrian-based SMEs use Amazon as an online sales channel. These have created more than 10,000 additional local jobs.

Amazon works with more than 900,000 independent partners across Europe. In addition to sales partners, these are developers, creatives, authors and delivery partners. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that sell via Amazon in Europe have created over 550,000 jobs across Europe in 2020 and recorded over 12.5 billion euros in export sales despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. The cooperation with sales partners enables Amazon to offer customers an outstanding shopping experience with a large selection of products at good prices. In return, the companies benefit from access to millions of active Amazon customers worldwide. “Every day we partner with thousands of small and medium-sized businesses helping them expand their business beyond their region”Says Xavier Flamand, Director of Seller Services for the EU at Amazon. “These companies are able to quickly and easily sell their products online and connect with millions of customers around the world. We will continue to innovate for small and medium-sized businesses to provide our customers with a great shopping experience”. The Amazon SME Report 2021 for Austria was published today. This shows how the cooperation pays off for the independent entrepreneurs and to what extent Amazon supports local businesses in becoming even more successful.

Growth for Austria’s SMEs: plus 25 percent of products sold

From January 1 to December 31, 2020, domestic SMEs sold more than 15 million products via Amazon, which corresponds to a growth of 25 percent compared to the previous year (2019: 12 million products). This means that in 2020 more than 30 products per minute were sold by Austrian SMEs via Amazon. More than 500 SMEs achieved a turnover of more than 100,000 euros for the first time. For the first time, more than 25 SMEs generated sales of over 1 million euros. Sales abroad played a central role for the companies: 85 percent of sales related to exports.

From Austria into the world – the most popular product categories

One of the top 5 product categories in which Austrian SMEs sell via Amazon is home, i.e. everything to do with furnishings, furniture, decoration, kitchen utensils or bathroom accessories. The numerous Austrian sales partners who sell successfully in this category include the married couple Julia and Ata Ataberk from Vienna, who sell colorful hammam and bath towels from fair and sustainable production under the LeStoff label: We have been offering our multifunctional bath towels in 33 colors and two sizes on Amazon for over five years. We are very happy that we are successful with LeStoff in both Europe and the USA! The Amazon programs relieve us of a lot of work that we would otherwise have to do internally. ”

Another popular category is toys. For the Carinthian company Piepmatz und Grünschnabel, selling on Amazon is an important lever for reach and growth. Beate Wuggenig founded the company in Feldkirchen in 2012 to provide targeted support to children who suffer from dyslexia or arithmetic weaknesses with educational games: “We want to teach children and adults to play together, which is often neglected in today’s fast-paced world. We have been using Amazon since 2015. Above all, the Fulfillment by Amazon program was a strong growth lever for us thanks to its large reach. The top 5 product categories of Austrian SMEs also include sporting goods, health & personal care and cosmetics.

100 million euros investment in Austria

In Austria alone, Amazon invested 100 million euros in local locations last year – above all in expanding the logistics network. Half of the Austrian sales partners, i.e. over 1,000, use the program Fulfilled by Amazon (Fulfillment by Amazon, FBA). Amazon takes over the entire logistics – from goods storage, shipping, any returns to customer service – for the company. The main advantage here is that the sales partners can concentrate on their core competencies and also benefit from Amazon’s strong infrastructures and simple export opportunities. They also receive Prime Status – a key selling point for many customers.

2.8 billion euros for SMEs across Europe

To help companies become even more successful, Amazon spent a total of more than 2.8 billion euros across Europe in 2020 on logistics, tools, services, programs, training and teams. In total, more than 250 new tools and services were made available in 2020: With these, entrepreneurs can bring new products to the market, increase their sales, analyze their business and protect their intellectual property. “In addition to our investments in Austria, we are continuously developing programs and services that help our sales partners to be even more successful. Among other things, we have this year with Amazon Small Business created its own shop-within-a-shop to make Austrian companies and their products even more visible. Thanks to the growing success of our sales partners, we also indirectly make a valuable contribution to local value creation“, Says Markus Schöberl, Director Seller Services for Austria and Germany. In addition, Amazon founded the knowledge portal in September 2020 together with the German Retail Association and the pro bono initiative “Retailers Help Retailers” Quickstart Online, which sees itself as a contact point for all questions about e-commerce and wants to support SMEs step by step in building a digital pillar. The “Entrepreneurs: Inside the Future” podcast about the Amazon Marketplace shows in regular episodes the opportunities for small and medium-sized companies in e-commerce.

Börse Express – ROUNDUP: Hellofresh wants to take over convenience food supplier Youfoodz

BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The cook box mail order company Hellofresh
plans to expand its ready-made meals business with the acquisition of the Australian company Youfoodz. The price is around 125 million Australian dollars (around 79 million euros), said the MDax listed companies on Tuesday in Berlin. For each share 0.93 Australian dollars are to be paid in cash. Compared to the last closing price, this is an increase of 82 percent. The management of Youfoodz supported the takeover, it said. Shortly after the start of trading, the Hellofresh share slipped almost one percent in a slightly negative environment. The MDax was down 0.2 percent.

Ready-to-eat meals have experienced rapid growth in Australia and the acquisition will strengthen the ready-to-eat segment, Hellofresh justified the upcoming acquisition. According to the information, Youfoodz has delivered more than 60 million meals since it was founded in 2012. In addition to healthy meals, the Australian company also wants to offer dishes suitable for certain diets such as gluten-free or vegetarian nutrition as well as specific dishes for allergy sufferers.

Last November, Hellofresh had already taken over Factor75, a US supplier of ready meals. The USA is by far the most important market for Berliners; the company shows all other countries cumulatively in the “International” segment.

In their core business, the Berlin cook boxes offer pre-portioned ingredients that are to be used for cooking at home. With the additional offers from Factor75 and Youfoodz, Hellofresh also wants to win over customers who are no longer behind the stove, but want to eat the dishes immediately.

Hellofresh had grown significantly in the Corona crisis. Because people only rarely left their apartments and houses during the lockdown phases and restaurants and bars remained closed, they looked for a change in their own four walls.

Sebastian Patulea of ​​the Jefferies investment bank doubts that this development could now come to an end with a view to the relaxed corona measures and that customer interest could wane. Pessimists expected that expectations for the second quarter would be missed for the first time in months because more people could cancel their Hellofresh subscriptions. However, the persistently high number of website visits that the Berliners recorded compared to the competition argued against this, argued Patulea./ngu/mne/eas

More mobile phone options, greater benefit for the consumer?

Daniel Rodríguez agrees that the problem is the calls. “Although it offers very attractive plans in terms of navigation, the coverage is very bad, as well as its customer service,” he says.

BAIT offers its mobile service through the Red Compartida of Altán Redes, a Mexican company that according to its latest press release provides national coverage to 90% of the population, 65% (three million users) through 100 virtual mobile operators that use a 4.5G LTE infrastructure under the 700 Mhz spectrum, and the rest through the roaming service of other available networks.

“It is possible that users may find some inconvenience in the service with us and with any other provider, but it must be in a timely manner in some buildings or specific areas,” explains Altán Redes in an email to Expansion. “In some other cases, the inconveniences may be derived from incompatible equipment or that your device does not have the necessary configurations to enjoy the service.”

To solve this problem, the company ensures that it constantly performs activities to improve the network already deployed, in addition to providing training to MVNOs in terms of device configuration so that users can have the best experience. Until the publication of this note, Walmart did not respond to the request for an interview made by Expansion.

As of the first quarter of 2021, 126.6 million mobile lines were registered in Mexico, of which 3.93 million correspond to virtual mobile operators, that is, 3% of the total market, according to data from the consulting firm The CIU.

Despite the experiences, the fact that there are more options has meant a change for consumers. “For them it is very good news,” says Elena Estavillo, director of the i-Center for the Society of the Future and former commissioner of the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT).

Market opening

It has been almost seven years since the MVNOs landed in Mexico. The first to make its appearance on the market was Virgin Mobile, it did so with the aim of positioning itself as a competitive option and different from the service offered by traditional operators. But he did not succeed.

Rolando Alamilla, Market Research Manager at The CIU, says that his main mistake was getting on your own terms with Telcel, AT&T and Movistar, who knew how to respond with promotions and low rates. In all this, the beneficiary was the consumer.

“The arrival of MVNOs in a market with such a marked concentration as the Mexican one is very important. Before these virtual mobile operators, we only had three companies offering the service. In 2015, 70% of the revenues and subscribers were had by a competitor ”, explains Alamilla.

Virgin Mobile is to be thanked for the lower rates. “Before his arrival we paid a little more than three pesos per minute for a call, one peso per short message and one peso per megabit, so not everyone had access to broadband, it was very expensive (…) Virgin was the first that offered a peso for a minute ”. The market was shaken and the traditional operators had to lower their prices, even opting to promote packages at affordable costs. “The market collapsed in favor of the user,” says the specialist.

the factors that gave the victory of Zama to Pemex

A source close to the negotiations explained that, even two days after the decision of the Ministry of Energy was made public (which was actually notified to the company a week ago), the private consortium did not know the technical document in which the dependence based its decision and to whom Expansion had access. The Secretariat was consulted on the matter, but assured that it will not comment on it.

There is a point that also attracts attention, says Medina. The analysis on which Pemex’s superiority to operate Zama is based is based on the performance of the state-owned company in six fields currently in operation –Balam, Ek, Octli, Mulach, Hok and Pokche–, three of them with a trend production. downward in recent months.

All the fields evaluated for the Pemex designation, based on a Welligence analysis, are with sandstone-type rock, similar to the Zama field, but all of these are at an average depth of 50 meters, which makes them incompatible with the characteristics of the disputed megafield, which is 165 meters deep.

At the beginning of the six-year term, Pemex resigned to exploit fields in deep waters on the grounds of the low record it has in the area and the high investments necessary for these fields. The oil company decided to focus on onshore and shallow water fields. But Zama, due to its complexity, is more like a deepwater asset, hence the analysts’ doubt about the oil company’s ability to operate the field.

The CNH document even recognizes that the maximum depth at which Pemex has obtained oil production is in assets with water depths of 122 meters.

In recent years, the state oil company has focused its experience in fields with a depth of between 41 and 88 meters, according to data from the consulting firm IPD Latin America. “In technical terms, Pemex’s capabilities cause doubt. The truth is that it is not operating and has not operated in such deep waters. They say that (Zama) is shallow water, but the technology and understanding is much more similar in deep water, ”says John Padilla, an analyst based in Colombia and managing director of IPD.

The size of Zama gave Talos the necessary impetus for the company to develop plans for several decades in the country, according to Timothy Duncan, president and CEO of Talos, in an interview with Bloomberg in 2017. But Sener’s latest move, which has been described by many analysts as one of the strongest blows to the private sector, threatens to change the plans of the American.

Pemex has not commented on the Sener’s decision. Meanwhile, Talos, who was a little-known explorer when he won both blocks in the oil rounds, it has warned that it will resort to legal action to stop the federal government’s decision.

But, for now, the companies will have to work together to deliver a work plan to the sector regulator, which will define the future of the megafield in the short term.

The results of phase 2 of the Sanofi vaccine “are excellent”, hails Agnès Pannier-Runacher

Its vaccine could be used for “the booster for the population which would have been vaccinated at the moment”, if it proves necessary, noted the minister.

Will the French vaccine arrive in time against the Covid-19 pandemic? Asked about FranceInfo this Monday morning, the Deputy Minister for Industry, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, was optimistic about the usefulness and effectiveness of this tricolor product to counter the virus.

Sanofi’s Phase 2 vaccine results “are excellent in terms of protection», Assured the minister. In addition, the pharmaceutical group works “on reminders“, Obtaining”excellent results, perhaps more promising […] as messenger RNA callbacks»From Moderna and Pfizer, widely used in France. His vaccine could be used for “the third dose, the reminder for the population that would have been vaccinated at this time“, She said, if a reminder is necessary in the eyes of the health authorities. The people concerned “could have the choiceOf the vaccine used.

In addition, the Sanofi vaccine could convince the last skeptical individuals, wanted to believe the Minister Delegate. “We have a commitment to the French vaccine which is quite important, there is a psychological effect. I couldn’t explain it, but it’s a reality, in terms of membershipShe said.

This product has the other advantage of being easier to store than that of Pfizer, with a “fairly simple logistics mode“And a lower price than the doses of messenger RNA: it can therefore”helping to vaccinate the planet“. A “contract“With Sanofi is being negotiated at the European level, also specified Agnès Pannier-Runacher. Monday, the boss of the pharmaceutical group, Olivier Bogillot, indicated that this product would be available “by December». «We attacked our phase 3 studies“, He added on France Inter.

Sanofi’s vaccine could thus join the European Union’s arsenal against Covid-19 by the end of the year, alongside those of Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. However, its doses may arrive too late to participate in most of the French vaccine campaign: by the end of August, the executive intends to have offered a first injection to 40 million French people, or 75% of adults, and 35 million people, or two-thirds of adults, will need a full immunization schedule.

Compulsory vaccination is not yet decided

These objectives will however depend on the daily rhythm of the injections: the number of first doses administered has fallen sharply in recent weeks, but Agnès Pannier-Runacher said she was confident about the “responsibility” the French. The number of doses is no longer a problem: “the pace of deliveries will continue steadily“, The stake is now”convince the French to get vaccinatedShe noted.

For the time being, the question of a vaccination obligation for caregivers has not yet been decided, said the minister. “We don’t want to force thingsShe said, wishing for a “approach as consensual as possible“. The government will decide “based on our feeling of the best decision to take to protect the French“. Agnès Pannier-Runacher, however, did not comment on a vaccination obligation for the general population or for other professions. “Everything in due time, in good order“, She simply declared.

The issue of reimbursement of comfort tests for unvaccinated people “is also on the table“, Warned the minister. Free of charge for these tests “can be a barrier to vaccination“, At the same time as a significant cost for public finances, but no final decision has been taken for the moment, she noted.
