(Bloomberg) -- Continental AG said Chief Executive Officer Elmar Degenhart will step down on Friday, citing health reasons, amid a push by the German company to overhaul management and speed up structural changes.Chairman Wolfgang Reitzle plans to make a decision on Degenhart’s successor soon, the Hanover-based manufacturer said late Thursday without elaborating. Bloomberg News reported earlier that Continental has been mulling replacing Degenhart with the head of its core automotive operations, Nikolai Setzer, according to people familiar with the matter, who declined to be identified because the information is private. A spokesman for Continental declined to comment on CEO succession plans.Continental fell as much as 1.9% in early Frankfurt trading, valuing the company at about 18 billion euros ($21 billion).Degenhart, whose contract extends through 2024, has faced criticism for several missteps including communication around the foreclosure of a German tire plant in Aachen as well as an unusually harsh letter to employees in September 2018.Those have undermined some supervisory-board members’ confidence that he is the right executive to lead Europe’s second-largest auto supplier at a time when the industry is facing massive challenges in its shift to electric and autonomous vehicles, some of the people said.Setzer, 49, runs Continental’s large automotive business, and will likely prevail over other internal and external candidates being considered to succeed Degenhart, the people added.Sprawling PortfolioContinental’s management board has nine members, an unusually large number for Germany’s blue-chip DAX index and a reflection of the 150-year-old company’s sprawling portfolio of operations. Chairman Reitzle, a renowned deal maker at industrial-gas company Linde AG and cement firm Holcim AG, has pushed to make Continental more nimble and react faster to technological changes in the industry, some of the people said.Continental’s shares surged to an all-time high in January 2018 after the firm confirmed a Bloomberg News report that the maker of tires, powertrains and conveyor belts was considering options to streamline itself.Management has made little progress with that operational review in the almost three years since then, contributing to the erasure of almost two-thirds of its market value. The rout worsened when Continental and its peers suffered a major blow from the coronavirus pandemic as carmakers shut showrooms and factories for several weeks earlier this year.Rivals’ Spin-OffsInvestors have repeatedly criticized the lack of resolve and speed with which Degenhardt, 61, has addressed the firm’s complex structure. A first step of the intended simplification -- the carve-out and listing of Continental’s combustion-engine-powertrain operations -- was put on hold for an indefinite period.Listing part of the powertrain division would be a step toward making Continental more nimble and hone in on growth areas such as electric vehicles and self-driving features. The unit generated 7.7 billion euros in sales last year and employed more than 40,000 people.Rival auto suppliers have spun off their combustion-engine businesses in recent years to concentrate on electrified powertrains or autonomous-driving technology. Delphi Automotive Plc split itself into two listed companies -- a powertrain unit dubbed Delphi Technologies Plc and a software-focused company called Aptiv Plc -- in late 2017. In a similar move, Sweden’s Autoliv Inc. listed its electronics unit Veoneer Inc. in early 2018.Degenhart has indicated that a listing of its powertrain unit might be just a first step, saying a partial-share sale of a minority stake in its massive rubber division could help fund potential acquisitions that are beyond the company’s current ability to afford.(Updates with shares in fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

BUDAPEST, Hungary— The number of coronavirus-related deaths in Hungary rose to an all-time high on Friday, prompting the government to tighten oversight over compliance with regulations to stem the spread of infections. Hungarian health authorities reported that 65 patients died over the past 24 hours, while the number of confirmed new cases jumped to 3,286 from 2,194 on Thursday. The government has not announced new restrictive measures despite the steep rise in infections but Prime Minister Viktor Orban stressed Friday that authorities will hand out fines to everyone failing to wear a mask where required. “I do not believe in multiplying the rules, but in enforcing existing ones,” Orban said in a radio interview. Hungary’s chief medical officer announced Thursday that wearing masks will be mandatory in restaurants and bars as well except during consumption. Police will be authorized to close establishments that do not enforce the regulations. The central European nation has recorded 71,413 confirmed infections since the start of the pandemic, including 1,699 deaths. ___ HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE VIRUS OUTBREAK: — On virus, Trump and health advisers go their separate ways — Japan crosses 100,000 cases, 9 months after 1st infection — Coronavirus dims Mexico’s bright Day of the Dead celebration — WHO says Europe has reached 10 million coronavirus cases — U.S. public health experts say the nation’s response to the crises has been marked by grave missteps and missed opportunities. ___ — Follow AP’s coronavirus pandemic coverage at http://apnews.com/VirusOutbreak and https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak ___ HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING: BRUSSELS — Belgian coronavirus cases continued their record rise on Friday before the government met to consider even tougher restrictions on movements that would amount to a quasi-lockdown. After surpassing the spring record on Thursday, the number of patients in Belgian hospitals broke the 6,000-mark and stood at 6,187, a rise of 263 in a day. After measures were beefed up earlier in the week, the government was to meet again later Friday to consider further restrictions. Non-essential shops are expected to face temporary closure. Patients in intensive care units reached 1,057 from 993 the day earlier, and virologists have said that unless tougher measures having a quick impact the saturation point of 2,000 patients will be reached on Nov. 6. Hospital authorities stood first in line to demand action since they say the health system is at the point of collapse. ___ NEW DELHI — India has reported 48,648 new coronavirus cases, continuing a downward trend in infections even as the country’s caseload has crossed 8 million and is only behind the U.S. The Health Ministry also reported 563 new fatalities in the past 24 hours, raising the overall death toll to 121,090 on Friday. The slowdown in the pandemic in India has now lasted more than a month and the country has reported fewer than 60,000 cases for nearly two weeks. According to the Health Ministry, India has 594,386 active cases, which suggests that more people are recovering than those who are testing positive for the virus. But even as cases are dropping nationwide, the capital New Delhi is facing what could be a third wave of infections. The national capital, which recently became the worst-hit city in India, is among the few regions in the country that is increasingly seeing a spike in new infections from last week. New Delhi has 30,952 active cases of the virus. It has been clocking more than 5,000 cases daily from the last three days. The surge in new infections comes at a time when pollution levels have started to soar in the capital, exacerbating respiratory illnesses among many. ___ TOKYO — Japan’s coronavirus cases has topped 100,000, nine months after a first case was found in mid-January, according to the health ministry figures released Friday. The country confirmed 808 new cases on Thursday, bringing the cumulative COVID-19 cases to 100,334, including 712 cases found on a cruise ship earlier this year, according to the ministry figures. About one-third of the cases come from Tokyo, where 221 cases were confirmed Thursday, bringing a prefectural total to 30,677, with 453 deaths. Nationwide, Japan has more than 1,700 deaths. Experts say Japan has so far managed to avoid “explosive” infections as in Europe and the U.S. without enforcing lockdowns, most likely thanks to the common use of face masks and disinfectant, as well as other common preventive measures including social distancing. Japan had a nationwide state of emergency in April and May, and experienced a less serious second wave in August, but has since been seeing a slight uptrend in new cases in northern Japanese prefectures, setting off concerns of a surge in the winter. Experts have urged extra caution at dining and drinking parties and workplaces. According to health ministry data, nearly half of the new cases were in their 20s and 30s. ___ EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso County officials ordered a two-week shutdown of non-essential activities Thursday after the area’s medical resources were overwhelmed by the illness caused by the novel coronavirus. County Judge Ricardo Samaniego announced the measure during a virtual news conference Thursday. Among the non-essential services ordered to be closed, effective at midnight Thursday, are tattoo, hair and nail salons, as well as gyms and in-person dining. He also appealed to residents to avoid all non-essential activities. Grocery and drug stores, funeral homes, health care services and government activities were among the activities deemed essential. Samaniego said all election-related activities, including campaigns and voting, also were deemed essential activities. “Our hospitals are at capacity, our medical professionals are overwhelmed, and if we don’t respond we will see unprecedented levels of death,” said Samaniego, the county’s top elected official. ___ ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The chief medical officer for the largest hospital system in New Mexico said Thursday that the state is at a pivotal point with the coronavirus as a new high was set for the daily case count and hospitalizations hit record levels. Dr. Jason Mitchell with Presbyterian Healthcare Services said during a briefing that the data and modeling is clear that New Mexico’s health care system will face a crisis if the spread of COVID-19 continues at its current rate. He warned that by December, equipment like ventilators would have to be shared and hospitals would have to set up tents in parking lots to make room for patients. “Our goal is to ensure transmission is low enough so we never hit that point,” he said. “This is a serious call to action for us as a community.” New Mexico on Thursday marked its highest number of hospitalizations since the pandemic began, with state officials saying the number of people in hospital beds due to a COVID-19 infection has increased more than 50% in just seven days. The number of deaths also are on the rise as daily case counts have increased more than 15% in the past seven days compared to the previous week. In all, nearly 1,000 people have died in New Mexico and Thursday’s count of confirmed infections — 1,082 — smashed a record that was set just days ago. The Associated Press

The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) will consult the market regulator and seek clarifications from Future Retail <FRTL.NS> and Reliance Industries <RELI.NS> about their $3.4 billion transaction, following Amazon's objection to the deal, an exchange source said. Amazon <AMZN.O> on Oct. 25 won an injunction from a Singapore arbitrator to halt Future's deal to sell retail assets to Reliance, arguing the Indian retailer group breached certain contract provisions it entered into last year in a separate deal with the U.S. firm. Amazon has now written to capital markets regulator SEBI, as well as the BSE and the National Stock Exchange, to put the deal on hold in light of the arbitration order, two separate sources said.

(Bloomberg) -- The French and Spanish economies surged in the third quarter, a rebound that’s now being derailed by an intensifying pandemic and new government restrictions across Europe on businesses.Both France’s 18.2% jump in output and Spain’s 16.7% beat the median expectations of economists. But the bounce backs follow huge slumps in the previous three months, when activity came to a near halt amid efforts to contain the pandemic. Similar figures are due for Germany and the euro area later on Friday.More up-to-date indicators paint a far gloomier picture, and the bloc’s economy is now at risk of slipping back into recession. The European Central Bank has acknowledged the increasing danger and signaled it will pump more stimulus into the economy in December.Key Developments:ECB pushes governments to get on with spendingFrance says second lockdown will cut output by 15%FRANCE REACT: Strong rebound masks steep contractionaheadClick TECO for more of today’s main economic news. See BECO for analysis from Bloomberg Economics and click here to subscribe to our Supply Lines newsletter.Austrian GDP, French inflation (9 a.m. CET)The Austrian economy grew 11.1% in the third quarter following a 12.1% slump in the previous three months, deeper than previously estimated. In France, there was disappointing inflation news, with price growth stagnating in October. Euro-area data due later Friday is forecast to show the inflation rate in the 19-country bloc at -0.3%, below zero for a third month.Spanish economic growth rebounded after lockdown (9 a.m.)Spain’s third-quarter performance followed the lifting of a strict lockdown that sent GDP plunging almost 18% in the previous three months. The country is on track for one of the euro-area’s deepest contractions this year. It’s been particularly hard-hit by the pandemic because of its dependence on the now-suffering tourism industry, the relatively small size of its companies -- which leaves them financially vulnerable -- and difficulties in the labor market.ECB’s Holzmann urges look at all options (8:34 a.m. CET)ECB Governing Council member Robert Holzmann says it’s right to assume Lagarde signaled more stimulus, but a final decision will be made at the December meeting. He downplayed the effectiveness of another interest-rate cut and said the ECB may have to be innovative.“We put a lot of money on the table but inflation hardly moved,” he said on Bloomberg Television. “There is a rising recognition that quantity by itself doesn’t do the trick. You have to look more into the structure and see how this can be fine tuned.”German Retail Sales (8 a.m. CET)The closure of bars, restaurants and some stores across parts of Europe means domestic demand will take a big hit this quarter. That side of the economy was already looking a bit wobbly. German retail sales fell a bigger-than-expected 2.2% in September, while earlier figures showed French consumer spending dropped 5.1%, leaving it below its pre-crisis level.French GDP (7:30 a.m. CET)All parts of the French economy rebounded sharply, with a particularly strong surge in consumer spending to a level only 2.1% below the third quarter of 2019. The recovery in investment was less vigorous, reaching a level 5.1% below last year’s.The country will aim to limit the drop in economic activity during the country’s second lockdown -- starting Friday -- to 15%, half the decline recorded in the spring, according to French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire.
