  • Grimaldi détient désormais près de 80% des titres d’ACL
    Finalement la dernière semaine aura été décisive pour l’opération “offre d’achat” que Grimaldi (groupe Naples) a lancée sur le reste des titres de l’armement ACL. On était en droit de considérer, il y a une dizaine de jours que le cap des 60% ne serait pas dépassé, mais tout semble indiquer que des actionnaires ont préféré attendre la veille de l’échéance pour se défaire de leurs titres. Vendredi dernier, à la clôture de l’opération, Grimaldi détenait 79,6% des titres, donc pratiquement 80%. Il reste donc un actionnaire d’une certaine importance, à savoir CMA CGM avec 10% qui jugeait le prix de 97 NKR (10,92 dollars) trop bas.
  • Alloin: le chiffre d’affaires dépassera le milliard de FRF en 2001
    Pour l’ensemble de l’exercice 2001, les prévisions du groupe familial français Alloin, qui a son siège à Villefranche-sur-Saône, dans le département du Rhône, portent actuellement sur un chiffre d’affaires consolidé de 1,1 milliard de FRF (167,69 millions d’EUR). Par rapport à 1999, cela représentera une progression de 85,2%. La société familiale originelle a véritablement changé de dimension et diversifié ses activités pour devenir un véritable groupe au terme d’une forte croissance tant interne qu’externe. Fondée en 1968, la société Alloin n’intervenait à l’origine qu’en messagerie routière rapide entre le “Grand Est” de l’Hexagone et deux autres régions françaises: l’Ile-de-France et Rhône-Alpes. Aujourd’hui, son réseau national intégré n’a plus guère que l’Ouest français à couvrir pour être complet et l’activité s’est étendue tant à l’international qu’à la logistique.
