Higher taxes imposed on Russia's energy sector could make prolonged output curbs by OPEC and allied producers easier to stomach for Moscow's energy majors. The new system of taxes, approved by President Vladimir Putin earlier this month to help Russia weather the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, make it more expensive for energy companies to boost production from mature oil fields and produce more heavy crude.

(Bloomberg) -- SAP SE cut its revenue forecast for the full year and said it expects the coronavirus pandemic to hurt demand through “at least” the first half of 2021 as a fresh wave of lockdowns hits businesses globally.The pandemic will delay SAP’s goals for cloud revenue, overall sales and operating profit by one or two years, especially in hard-hit industries, the German software company said in a statement on Sunday. Klein said on a call Monday he expects a conservative recovery into the first half of next year.Chief Executive Officer Christian Klein, who became sole CEO in April, has been trying to navigate spending freezes from business customers trying to ride out the Covid-19 lockdowns this year. The warning came hours after governments in Spain and Italy unveiled further measures to try to rein in the virus’s spread.The previous outlook “assumed economies would reopen and population lockdowns would ease, leading to a gradually improving demand environment in the third and fourth quarters,” SAP said in the statement. “Lockdowns have been recently re-introduced in some regions and demand recovery has been more muted than expected.”The company now expects adjusted revenue of 27.2 billion euros to 27.8 billion euros ($32.2 billion to $32.9 billion) at constant currencies in 2020, lower than the earlier guidance of 27.8 billion euros to 28.5 billion euros. SAP also said it no longer sees a boost from business-travel related revenue this year in its Concur business.QualtricsSAP said it is in the advanced stages of a listing for its Qualtrics software unit.“We are well advanced in the IPO preparations of the Qualtrics IPO”, Chief Financial Officer Luka Mucic said on a call Monday. “Qualtrics has had a strong quarter which will set it up for further growth into next year”.The Walldorf, Germany-based company announced the decision in July to list the unit less than two years after buying the company for a record sum in a surprise u-turn signaling a strategic shift under Klein.New OutlookAdjusted cloud revenue is expected to be 8 billion euros to 8.2 billion euros in 2020, down from a previous estimate of 8.3 billion euros to 8.7 billion euros.Operating profit will be 8.1 billion euros to 8.5 billion euros this year, down from expectations of as much as 8.7 billion euros.SAP updated its mid-term ambition for total revenue to more than 36 billion euros in 2025 compared to its previous estimate of 35 billion euros in 2023.The company sees more than 22 billion euros in cloud revenue and over 11.5 billion euros in operating profit by 2025.Third QuarterThird quarter non-IFRS operating profit decreased by 12% year over year to 2.07 billion euros.

Melbourne, Australia's second-biggest city, will exit its coronavirus lockdown after nearly four months under onerous restrictions, authorities announced Monday, with no new daily cases or deaths recorded. Lockdown orders for Melbourne's residents will be lifted from midnight Tuesday into Wednesday while restaurants, beauty salons and retail stores will be permitted to throw open their doors to customers.Home to 5 million people, Australia's second-biggest city has been in lockdown since early July after a spike of Covid-19 infections that began in hotels where people were in quarantine after arriving from abroad.The city and the surrounding Victoria state, recorded its first 24-hour period without any new Covid-19 cases since the infections rose after security bungles at some quarantine hotels sparked a major outbreak.Announcing the much-anticipated relaxing of restrictions, Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews declared it an "emotional day"."This has been a very difficult year. And Victorians have given a lot and I'm proud of every single one of them," he told reporters in Melbourne."Now is the time to open up," added Andrews. "We've been able to bring this under control, a day of zero cases is an amazing achievement."‘Donut Day’ marks zero new casesSocial media users declared the return to zero new cases "Donut Day", with the hashtag trending as some Twitter users posted selfies with the treats in celebration.Melbourne became the epicentre of the country's second wave, with new daily cases rising above 700 in August when the rest of Australia was already rolling back virus restrictions.Some restrictions had already lifted last week, allowing haircuts and golf games to return, but further easing planned for Sunday was delayed by 24 hours to assess thousands of test results after a small outbreak in the city's north.Andrews said all the tests had returned negative results."It was worth waiting to be absolutely confident to be sure that our team had their arms around those positive cases and fundamental control of the outbreak – and that is exactly what these numbers show us," he said.Pressure has been mounting for weeks on state authorities to allow the city more freedoms, with a litany of rules remaining in place as they took a cautious approach to reopening despite the falling number of cases.The rest of Victoria state is already enjoying fewer restrictions, with gyms set to reopen and outdoor live music to resume from Tuesday.Restrictions on travel between Melbourne and regional Victoria will be lifted from November 8, with a 25-kilometre (15-mile) travel radius for city residents also set to be removed the same day.The state remains cut off from the rest of Australia, which also maintains strict controls on international borders to prevent transmission of the virus from overseas.Australia has been relatively successful in containing the spread of the coronavirus, with about 27,500 cases and 905 deaths in a population of 25 million.(FRANCE 24 with AFP and REUTERS)
