Mon 1st June, 2020 10:04am

emerging markets currencies will put further pressure on its net
debt
    ** Ontex's EM currencies, especially in Mexico and Brazil,
have depreciated nearly 15% versus USD and with the company's
USD-denominated input costs CS forecasts negative transactional
impact of over 300 basis points on full year EBITDA margin 
    ** The broker expects the company's net debt/EBITDA ratio to
rise to 3.7 this year amid declining profits and an increase in
restructuring charges 
    ** It cuts its EPS estimate by 14% to 1.12 euro vs consensus
of 1.35 euro and lowers target price to 12 euros from 15.5 euros
