Siemens subsidiary Gamesa still doesn’t seem to be out of the woods, looking at the strong loss (minus 627 million EUR) that this company contributed to its parent (total minus of 560 million EUR). Onshore wind is considered a problem area – combined with miscalculations and supply chain issues. For this reason, there is speculation that this subsidiary will be fully integrated or restructured via a share swap, which could be implemented in, among other things, a realignment or even a split-off. A partial merger with a competitor may also be possible.
On the other hand, Siemens Energy can generate great potential in all areas. New gas power stations that are H2-ready are becoming increasingly important, just considering Germany’s goals alone of shutting down coal-fired power plants as well as nuclear energy. The global demand for electrolyzers should also keep the order books of Siemens Energy full, so the current share price performance ought to be classified under “buy on bad news.”
