Stock markets surged and the euro jumped sharply after centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron won the first round of the weekend’s French presidential election, easing fears of a victory by the far-right Front National. France’s Cac index climbed more than 4% to a nine-year high, its best daily performance since August 2015, as investors bet that Macron would defeat the other runoff candidate, the FN’s Marine Le Pen on 7 May. The first vote put Macron on 23.75% with Le Pen on 21.53%. The result was seen as the most market-friendly outcome, putting the independent former investment banker in pole position to fend off the anti-EU Le Pen. The euphoric mood spilled over into other stock markets, with Germany’s Dax up 3.3% to a new closing peak and the FTSE 100 recovering 2.1% to 7,264 after last week’s slump in the wake of the UK general election announcement. . The FTSE 250 added more than 1% to hit a record closing high, while in Asia the Nikkei 225 ended up nearly 1.4%. On Wall Street, US markets also rallied, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average up by about 200 points or nearly 1% by lunchtime and the Nasdaq Composite technology index hitting its best ever level. Banking shares were among the leading gainers across the globe, lifted by the prospect of a more certain economic outlook for the eurozone if the EU-friendly Macron wins the final round of the election. The VIX volatility index – the so-called fear index – fell by 22%, its biggest daily drop since the day after Donald Trump’s US election victory last November. Meanwhile, the single currency hit a five-and-a-half month high against the dollar. Although it came off its best levels, it was still up about 1% against the dollar and the pound as European markets closed. Sterling had its worst day against the euro since last October and analysts cautioned the currency was likely to remain volatile before the latest European Central Bank meeting on Thursday. French government 10-year bond prices rose to three-month highs as concerns about the election eased. Michael Hewson at CMC Markets said: “For markets, this was always the least bad option, with most expecting Mr Macron to become president in two weeks’ time as the other candidates endorse him over Marine Le Pen. “But for all his market and EU-friendly rhetoric, Emmanuel Macron will face the same problems previous French presidents have faced, which means he will have to reach out across the political divide. This lack of support is likely to make him a lame duck president, only able to affect minor tweaks or changes.” Trevor Greetham, the head of multi asset at Royal London Asset Management, said: “It’s worth noting that the French election is likely to be the first of several risks to test markets as thin summer trading comes into view. “Signs of a temporary peaking out in global growth, the impact of tightening moves in China and, first up, a potential government shutdown in the US at the end of this week, mean investors can’t pop the champagne corks just yet.”

Since January 2017, Lisa Stotts has been serving as chief financial officer at CMC Energy Services (http://cmcenergy.com), based in Fort Washington, PA, with locations in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. Stotts’ decades-long career spans several appointments as CFO and vice president of finance for multi-million dollar companies, in addition to extensive accounting leadership experience for Marriott International, Inc. Stotts, who earned her undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of Maryland and an MBA from St. Joseph’s University, says she chose CMC for its distinct mission and tradition of being women owned and women operated. Founded in 1977 by Doris Ikle, CMC Energy Services designs and implements energy efficiency programs for more than 20 utilities. The company continues to be certified as a women-owned business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). CMC Energy Services will be the first WEBENC company Stotts has led, and she’s delighted. “What attracted me first and foremost is the mission,” says Stotts. “Helping people, the ratepayers, especially low-income customers, that was meaningful for me. I can do what I do anywhere, but at CMC people are top of mind for senior leadership and our board.” Prior to joining CMC, Stotts consulted with CMF Associates in Philadelphia and in that capacity served as interim chief financial officer for various companies. Previously she served as chief financial officer for Soleo Healthcare, formerly Biomed, in Sharon Hill, Pa. She also spent nearly a decade at Maxwell Systems, Inc., in King of Prussia, leading the finance and accounting department as vice president. Her early career was spent at Marriott International, Inc. in Washington, D.C. supporting hotel operations and maximizing profitability. It was at Marriott, where Stotts cultivated her strength in customer relations. CMC Energy Services has invested significantly in its customer services capacity; most recently in a newly implemented customer care center. She points to Marriott founder J. Willard Marriott for the sage counsel she learned as a Marriott manager and continues to practice today: "Take care of associates and they'll take care of your customers." But joining a company whose tagline is “Conserving Energy, Preserving the Future,” is also compelling for Stotts. “Regardless of what you might believe about global warming, we all understand the diminishing resources of our planet,” she says. “At CMC, we’re acting responsibly. There’s a big education component to what we do. When auditors go out to a home, they teach many things homeowners never knew.” While new to the energy industry, Stotts notes that her inherently curious nature is an asset to the company on pace for continued growth. In 2015, the company acquired Competitive Resources, Inc., which has recently been rebranded as CMC Energy Services. “One of the things I bring to the table is a different way of looking at things,” says Stotts, who is also a committed marathon competitor. “By nature, I question everything to learn, but also to think about the process at the very core.” On the connection between professional success and long-distance running, Stotts says both require stamina. “My perspective on running is that it creates a balance,” she explains. “I am able to unplug completely and focus on the training required to meet the challenges of running half and full marathons. This is very consistent with the persistence required for change, keep a steady pace and remember it’s not a sprint.”

Most recently, Imagine secured a two-year agreement with The Atavist Magazine under which it has the first right to develop film and television projects based on upcoming Atavist articles and the publication's archives. Mr. Howard was recently engaged to direct the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars spin-off. CMC was instrumental in the creation and negotiation of the joint venture. The Raine Group served as financial advisor and O'Melveny and Meyers LLP and Ziffren Brittenham LLP served as legal advisors to Imagine on the transaction.
