3:04 am
today, these particular industries should have the onto a consumer and have the pricing power to deliver net earnings even if the growth rates are not very stimulating. the issue is that you might make earnings downgrades in other cyclical sectors. we've seen heineken policy you mentioned consumers. do you see them as one monolithic group or does the german consumer feel that much more confident than the french or italian or spanish consumer? >> absolutely right. huge difference. i've been recently in spain and still the morale is not that high. the worst is over, but it doesn't mean that the skies will
3:05 am
be clear. german consumers will continue ofenjoy a pretty sweet spot labor costs which haven't really fallen to the extent that any other consumer has to withstand. competitiveness for these companies is still quite high. i think we will see a two-speed situation whereby some of the core consumer base continues to the pretty confident despite all the things going on, whereas the referee in italy, spain, portugal, very much on a wait and see stance which will continue to depress private demand. hans: are there any events on the calendar that you are looking to turn that around? is it going to view the vote in the u.k. on the 23rd? aswe have a two-speed europe

indeed. let's talk a bit of tech. arm holdings trading higher today after reporting sales that beat analyst estimates. they are up 22% in british pound terms. the company says they see full-year revenue in line despite economic uncertainties remaining. for more, we are joined by the chief executive, simon segars. interesting we are hearing of the areas of growth for you at the moment. it seems to be about servers, internet of things. how much slowdown are we seeing in the pc or smartphone area? simon: for us, small clients is still a big market. the growth rates we saw last year were what we expected. the groceries we are predicting this year are what we expect. probably about 6%, 7% growth in smart own handset units. that is on track with what we
3:13 am
been forecasting for some time. we are making sure we've got the right products, making sure we engage with the right customers. and then we are investing to grow share in other markets, networking, servers, internet of things. last year, we announced a step up of investment in those markets. we are pleased with progress of our. caroline: goldman saying they see room for the rates to increase. can you give us an idea of where you see royalties picking up for 2017? simon: we try and forecast that in time. the split between the various price points, the technology, we estimate that is going to drive 15% growth in royalties from the mobile segment alone. then we have opportunities out and of that. what is going to happen is in
3:14 am
the hands of consumers. that -- try and cast forecast that to any degree of accuracy. we look at where the analysts are. the headline number. we are comfortable with that for the rest of our year. hans: hans nichols in berlin. if i can shift the conversation back to the consumer, you were saying a lot of that is out of your control. what effect do you think the prospect of a brexit is having on consumer spending and your bottom line? simon: it is one of those factors that into macroeconomic uncertainty. you were talking earlier about the bank of china reducing stimulus. grexit is having that he weakening -- and the effect of weakening sterling. whether businesses invest in capital, infrastructure, that
3:15 am
can effect what happens to our royalties in the short-term. we don't obsess much about the short-term. we need to think about that in the context of how the market views our company. when we are much more focused on is investing for the long run. what happens to the share price today, in the next weeks, months, not really something i spend a lot of time thinking about more worrying about. what is important is we get our investments right and engage in the long term. give us a tour of the world. where do you see growth and where do you see weakness? >> in terms of market? hans: yes. in markets. simon: again, we are licensing technology into semiconductor companies are selling their products to oems who are selling into markets. we are quite distanced from
3:16 am
that. we have seen large growth in china over the last few years. that is just one of the markets. our day-to-day business focus is on our direct customer base and they tend to be the company's building the chips. where they are geographically is different from the markets they are serving. caroline: talk to me about the people building the chips. -- mixed mixed shares pictures. they are buying and licensing your products. then you have 12,000 jobs going. where do you see the landscape when it comes to the chip market? simon: there are some fundamental that remain no matter what the market is doing. the semiconductor industry is investing to develop technology, to make transistors smaller, more power efficient. that is why companies like asml
3:17 am
are selling their equipment to chip manufacturers. you then got people designing chips themselves, thinking about where the market is going itself. we've seen a shift from pcs and desktops toward mobile devices. we are seeing big investment in network infrastructure. many companies are shifting themselves to be aligned for those growth opportunities. that is something we are involved in as well. the investments we are making are in those new growth areas. this is all part of the overall trend, the overall evolution of the market. slowdown, newer markets emerge. resources get shifted from one into the other. underlying this all is the ability to manufacture and create more advanced process technology. caroline: you've been investing
3:18 am
in more are in the to support -- &d.e r are you investing less in the brexit threat? simon: that isn't something we are thinking we should invest more here or there. what we are looking at is the global skill base. we are concerned about, would brexit make it harder for us to bring people to the u.k.? that is the biggest thing for us. the ability to do that freely is big for us. caroline: would you have to start hiring locally within france or germany if we did exit that you? simon: potentially that is something you would consider. where are the people with the skills we need? that is why we have design centers in the u.s., in the u.k., some smaller design centers across europe, france,
3:19 am
india, growing in china. we are trying to be close to our customers and close to the people we want to hire. caroline: how do you feel about silicon valley? you can also get a sense of the tech hubs in london and berlin where hans is. is it frothy? where coming to a stage there's a little bit of over exuberance? simon: we are seeing a change of sentiment around some areas. the cyber security space has been really hot. that is cooling down a bit. i think innovation is really strong right now. the cost of innovation has come down. i see that as a positive trend. caroline: we will see where that trend continues. thank you very much indeed. simon segars, chief executive of armor holdings. heineken heading

hans: let's get to the bloomberg business flash. here is yvonne man. yvonne: mitsubishi motors fell the most in more than a decade after the country said they will host -- hold a briefing about the improper handling of fuel economy tests. shares tested more than 15% lower. the transport ministry told bloomberg by phone that the automaker improperly handled fuel economy data involving its minicars in japan. the mitsubishi spokesman said that it cannot comment further before the briefing scheduled for 9:00 a.m., u.k. time. asml has forecast sales that topped analyst predictions. this comes as they ramp up

district court in the hague rulingo overturn a against russia's once biggest oil company. ryan chilcote joins us now. give us the context. it is a very con -- convoluted and needs context kind of story. what does it actually mean? ryan: this is a victory for russia and what has already been a protected -- protracted legal beattle. the -- exception of russia theat it gives higher ground. this has been a real thorn in russia's side. really damaging to its reputation, how it is perceived

by investors that an international court would say, not only did you steal the company, but you own them $50 billion. until they lose again. the legal battles will continue. they can say, we were always right and this court has just found that. hans: i will not ask you about the dutch legal appeals process, though i suspect you know something about that, but how do you see this ruling affecting other russian companies? ryan: the interesting thing is, it is not as if the former owners of yukos were ever going to get to $50 billion. what they have been doing is playing this cat and mouse game with the russians, who decided they would not pay the $50 billion, by freezing their assets in various countries. theyn the last while, froze about one billion dollars worth of assets in france that statesd to the russian
3:46 am
program. insia can be less concerned the short-term about these former owners freezing their assets outside russia where they can legally get there hands on them. the only thing is, perversely, there are some people arguing that the legal argument the russians used to win today in this court was that, we don't owe this $50 billion because this company was essentially stolen off the state in a rigged option. a lot of people are saying, what is different about that action from all the other options during the privatization process in the 1990's, and what does that say about russia's view and the validity of all of these private companies that emerged in that process? a bit of a double-edged sword, but in the short term they are probably breathing a little bit

3:48 am
u.k. should leave the european union. he said that quitting the eu would allow the u.k. to pursue a more beneficial immigration policy, as well as giving hope to the rest of europe. >> for europe, britain leaving will be the beginning of something more exciting. the democratic liberation of the whole continent. if we were to leave, we will have, in the words of a former prime minister, save your country by exertion and unified by example. caroline: donald trump has reasserted his status as republican front-runner. hillary clinton scored an equally big win over bernie sanders. sanders had won seven of the last eight contests. hans, talk to me. what are the main takeaways? are we now full on waiting our time until the trump, clinton face-off?
3:49 am
hans: think we have to wait until the inventions. i think it is pretty clear that we will have a contested convention on the republican side. it is difficult to see mathematically, even though donald trump says ted cruz is having a hard time, which he does, but mathematically how trump will have the requisite number of delegates before that convention in ohio. on the democratic side, you can start to see the endgame, and you saw this when you heard from hillary clinton directly address the bernie sanders supporters, saying it is time to bring the country together or the party together. that is hillary's challenge. how does she take some of the energy from the sanders campaign and harness that for her own? sec. clinton: of all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us.

cheering? that is the cheering from hillary supporters. is that sameis, corecheered in the real from the burners -- bernie sanders supporters? we know there will be a gap on the republican side, at how big will the enthusiasm gap be on the democratic side? that is something double be looking for throughout the next couple weeks and months. caroline: fascinating to me was the problems in brooklyn counting the votes. when does that happen? hans: that happens with regularity. the challenge with counting votes, and with disputed votes, always seems to be a reoccurring problem. it is a challenge with federalism in the states. you have different systems in different precincts, it is so arcane. you actually get to use the word "byzantine" in its proper

3:55 am
dollar-yen was a run 118 when they put rates -- was around 118 when they put rates into negative territory. asset prices have not responded in the way that they would hope outside the bond market. and their equity markets moving against them as well. >> can you imagine owning a 30 year bond at 0.4%? it beggars belief, but that is where we are. this is after, i think, already fairly aggressive action from the boj. i'm not sure that this is going entirely to plan, but they seem set on this path. perhaps the ecb tomorrow prepares us for more easing. we have some pricing by the end of the year, another 10 basis points in deposit rates. they have gone down this path.
3:56 am
i think investors expect them to continue. we are not sure what the effect is. hans: we have a new report out boj goldman saying further easing going from june, they are moving that up to april. you know the banks really well. do you suspect other banks will make similar calls? jon: whether they do or don't is beside the point. it is whether it would be effective. when you have yields this low more,y, even if they do they are pushing on a string. and having the effect in the bond market, the fx market isn't responding and the equity market isn't responding either. maybe they follow it up by buying more ets. i don't know what difference it will make. at this point, do more, but can
