Repsol leaves behind the red numbers due to Covid and earns 648 million in the first quarter | Companies

Repsol has left behind the losses that accompanied it during the year of the pandemic. The company led by Josu Jon Imaz has achieved a profit of 648 million of euros in the first three months of 2021 that contrast with the red numbers for 487 million registered in the same period of the previous year, since it has been driven by the recovery in crude prices.

And it is that, the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic caused in 2020 a collapse in world demand and the prices of reference raw materials that led Brent to record minimums of $ 15 per barrel in April of last year and to a average price for the year of 41 dollars. On the other hand, between January and March 2021 the average price of Brent has increased to 61 dollars per barrel and has allowed stocks to revalue, while that of Henry Hub gas stood at 2.7 dollars per MBtu, similar to the previous quarter.

For his part, adjusted net result, which measures the evolution of businesses discounting the variation in the value of inventories and extraordinary items, stood at 471 million euros, 5.4% above the equivalent period of 2020 thanks to the Exploration and Production and Chemical areas . In addition, all businesses obtained a positive operating cash flow, which for the Group as a whole amounted to a total of 1,030 million euros.

Likewise, Repsol highlights that in the first three months of the year has managed to reduce its net debt by 326 million euros (representing 5%) to reach 6,452 million. For its part, liquidity reached 8,456 million euros, which represents 2.93 times the short-term maturities. Additionally, in order to strengthen its financial position, the company closed in March an issue of subordinated bonds for an amount of 750 million euros.

By business areas, Exploration and Production contributed a result of 327 million euros, compared to 90 million in the same period of the previous year (+ 263%) thanks to the combination of cost adjustments, the optimization of operations and the rebound in the average prices of hydrocarbons compared to the first three months of 2020, which was 22% for Brent and 35% for Henry Hub. In addition, it achieved that its realization prices for crude oil and gas performed better than the international benchmark, with an increase between January and March of 23.4% in the case of crude oil and 41.7% for gas.

The area Industrial, for its part, achieved a result of 73 million euros, compared to 288 million in the first three months of 2020 (-74.6%), weighed down by the negative impact of Covid-19 on international market conditions. Specifically, the Chemicals, Wholesale and Gas Trading areas performed positively, while Refining obtained low margins and suffered from stoppages in activity. In addition, the area is being affected by the uncertainty generated by the energy transition, which will require projects and investments to meet the decarbonization objectives.

The area of Commercial and Renewables reached a result of 101 million, which is -16.5% less than the 121 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. More in detail, restrictions on mobility and the effects of the storm Filomena at the beginning of the year contracted by 14 % demand for the quarter at service stations, although Renewables and Generation performed well, as did Lubricants, which increased their volumes sold.

Repsol is in a moment of transformation after presenting its strategic plan for the period 2021-2025 in which it foresees investments of 18,300 million euros of which 30% (5.5 billion) will go to low-carbon initiatives. The new plan sets emission reduction targets, with a reduction in carbon intensity of 12% by 2025, 25% by 2030 and 50% by 2040

The company will invest in its refineries in Spain to move towards decarbonisation. Investments in Cartagena stand out, where work began for the construction of the new advanced biofuels plant, the first of its kind in Spain. In recent months, the 3D design of the facilities has begun, making progress in engineering projects and in the purchase of new equipment.In 2021, 66 of the 188 million euros planned for the project will be invested.

Telefónica Spain reduces revenues by 3.5% due to Covid and tough competition | Companies

Telefónica Spain recorded revenues in 2020 of 12,401 million euros, 3.5% less in year-on-year terms, in a year marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, and the tightening of competition in the market as a whole. The operator has indicated that the impact of Covid-19 has been 480 million.

In the fourth quarter, the teleco registered a slight improvement. Revenues in this period decreased 2.9% year-on-year, compared to a 4.3% drop in the third quarter, improving its trend, both in the sale of handsets (-24.5%; +1.4 percentage points compared to to the third quarter) and in service revenues (-2.1% year-on-year, +1.5 percentage points compared to the period between July and September).

In the fourth quarter, retail revenues fell 2.7% year-on-year, improving their performance thanks to higher growth in IT revenues and less erosion of non-convergent communications revenues. For its part, wholesale and other revenues grew again (+ 0.2% year-on-year) supported by a better performance of MVNOs revenues and a lesser deterioration in roaming revenues. In the year, however, they fell 3.1%.

Fourth quarter Oibda fell 4.7% mainly due to the impact of Covid-19, estimated at approximately 5.7 percentage points (79 million) but improved its year-on-year decline compared to the 4.8% drop in the third quarter , since the generation of efficiencies continues in network and systems expenses, commercial expenses and, to a lesser extent this quarter, in personnel expenses derived from the restructuring plan. Consequently, the 2020 Oibda fell by 5.2%, to 5,046 million euros. The OIBDA margin stood at 41.1% in the fourth quarter (-0.8 percentage points year-on-year) and at 40.7% in the total for the year (-0.7 percentage points).

Investment (CapEx) in 2020 fell by 15.2%, to 1,408 million euros, despite the advancement of NGN networks (FTTH and 5G), with more than 2.1 million real estate units passed in the year with fiber, due to the generation of efficiencies, the lower investment in legacy and the rationalization linked to Covid-19.

According to Telefónica, the management focused on cash generation allows OIBDA-CapEx to reach 3,638 million in 2020, with a decrease of 0.5%, and to increase 0.7% in the fourth quarter; with an OIBDA-CapEx margin in 2020 that remains at record levels of almost 30% (+0.9 percentage points).

In the call conference with analysts that followed the presentation of the annual accounts, the CEO of Telefónica, Ángel Vilá, highlighted the high capacity of the Spanish subsidiary to generate operating cash despite the impact of Covid-19. Thus, OIBDA-CapEx exceeds 3,600 million, practically stable compared to the previous year, and grew by 0.7% year-on-year in the fourth quarter (+6.2 pp compared to the third quarter) due to the sequential improvement in revenues from service (+1.5 pp) and the Oibda.

During the fourth quarter, the company focused on more moderate promotions and value generation by fostering a more rational market (in line with the “more for more” strategy). Thus, as of January 2021, the speed offered in fiber has increased to 1 Gb and DAZN and Disney + Star have been added to the content offer. “This greater market rationality is reflected in lower registrations in the quarter, although the prospects in the medium term and sustainability improve ”, says the company.

Total accesses (41.3 million) fell by 1% year-on-year impacted by the market rationalization initiative (-68,000 in fixed broadband, and an increase of 19,000 in mobile postpaid) to strengthen churn and preserve the value of the plant . In pay TV, accesses fell by 70,000 due to the drop in lower-value customers, although the performance of higher-value customers continued to be positive.

Fiber accesses connected to the network (retail and wholesale) reached 7.2 million, after adding 167,000 in the quarter (57,000 retailers) and already represent 77% of the retail broadband and 75% of the wholesale base.

The next operating system update iOS 14.5 for iPhone phones promises to deliver news on emojis. It is a total of 217 new designs that will be available to everyone with a software update that will arrive in the last months of the year.

Most correspond to emojis of inclusive couples, in which different skin tones and genders are combined for the LGTB community, as well as the possibility of adding a beard -also for women-.

Among the novelties are new motifs of faces: one exhaling, another with spiral-shaped eyes and even one in the clouds. The beta of the Apple system also allows the use of two new heart emojis: one bandaged and the other on fire.

An extensive combination of different skin tones will also debut for couples with hearts and couples kissing.

New animojis will also arrive

Apple, with the launch of the iOS 14 operating system, also improved the memoji design platform with new hairstyles, chinstraps, and hat options.

But above all much of the notions of gender were withdrawn when choosing elements to design a animoji, the animated designs that the apple company launched with the iPhone X. For example: a hairstyle does not necessarily have to be for men or women, therefore, related details were removed to reinforce this idea.

Some Apple Watch Series 5 and SE fail to charge: Apple fixes it for free | Lifestyle

There are many occasions when Apple has no choice but to recognize a serious problem that occurs in some of its devices. The iPhone battery, for example, became part of a completely free repair plan not too long ago, as well as a good batch of AirPods Pro that arrived with some hardware issues that needed a complete overhaul.

The fact is that the Apple Watch had managed to get rid with enough skill, until now, that those of Cupertino have been forced to have to call for repairs, also free, to units affected by a problem in charging the clock., Which is why just a few hours ago they put into circulation a update watchOS urgency (version 7.3.1) that tries to prevent other devices from experiencing this same failure.

If you don’t charge your watch, they’ll fix it for you

This new problem with some Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple Watch SE has to do with the inability of the watch to recharge after use and leaving the battery practically depleted. For some reason (which only Apple will know about), these devices are unable to inject power back into the battery no matter how much we leave them on the charging base for a while.

Apple repair program. Apple

According Apple itself, “a very small number of customers with Apple Watch Series 5 or Apple Watch SE models with watchOS 7.2 or 7.3 have experienced a problem with their watch “not charging after being in battery saver mode. If your watch is in this situation and you have tried everything to make it work again, the company recommends that you make an appointment at an Apple store, in the Genius Bar, to find a solution. If nothing has happened so far, install the latest update as soon as possible to avoid problems.

Precisely, those from Cupertino speak of the latest update “prevents this issue from occurring on other Apple Watch Series 5 or Apple Watch SE devices”, so it is a update critical that could prevent you from running out (temporarily) without a watch until you go through the official service. To find out if your watch has to visit an official store, Apple recommends placing the “watch on the charger you normally use, then wait at least 30 minutes”. If the Apple Watch won’t charge, “contact Apple Support to set up a free repair.”
