Patrick KOLLER, CEO of Faurecia, declared:

« Since the beginning of the year, our sales posted a solid outperformance versus automotive production of close to 300 basis points. Despite the market degradation throughout the year, our resilience and agility allow us to fully confirm our guidance for the year.  In addition, we are on track for a record year of order intake in 2019.

Despite current market conditions, we maintain the pace of our strategic transformation. A few days ago, we announced our project to acquire the remaining 50% stake of the SAS joint venture. This acquisition would expand our systems integration offer to cover all interior modules and strengthen our Just in Time plant network. During the quarter, we have also announced a significant cost reduction plan for Clarion, in line with our profitable growth roadmap for our new Business Group, Faurecia Clarion Electronics.

We look forward to sharing our strategy update and medium-term perspectives at our Capital Markets Day to be held in Paris on November 26.”


The Board of Directors, under the chairmanship of Michel de Rosen, met on October 16, 2019 and reviewed the present Press Release.

    • Due to time constraints related to the first consolidation of Clarion, it was accounted for only two months (April and May) in the consolidated sales in Q2; therefore, it was accounted for four months (June catch-up + July to September) in the consolidated sales in Q3.

    • Down 9.9% on a reported basis
    • Down 10.5% at constant currenciesand excl. Clarion scope effect, underperforming worldwide automotive production (-3.1%, source: IHS Markit dated October 2019)
    • Currencies had a positive impact of €12 million (+0.7% of last year’s sales)

Sales in the quarter were penalized by the temporary negative impact from EoPs for a combined effect of €179 million (representing -10.3% of last year’s sales) and the negative impact from the strike at GM plants in the US for €8 million (representing -0.5% of last year’s sales). Sales drop was broadly in line with the previous quarter, excluding the positive impact from bolt-on contribution that favored Q2 but no longer favored Q3.

Nevertheless, over two years, sales ex-currencies and excl. Clarion scope effect were broadly stable (Q3 2018 posted strong growth of +10.3%), outperforming worldwide automotive production by c. 600bps.

The Volkswagen Chattanooga (USA) Seating business, which was transferred to Faurecia at the beginning of the year and represents €1.3 billion of lifetime sales, is not included in the above-mentioned consolidated sales figures; as a minority business, it is accounted for by the equity method (sales for this business amounted to €40 million in the quarter).

  • In 9 months, sales amounted to €5,210 million (vs. €5,524 million in 9m 2018)
    • Down 5.7% on a reported basis
    • Down 6.4% at constant currencies and excl. Clarion scope effect, broadly in line with worldwide automotive production (-6.0%, source: IHS Markit dated October 2019)
    • Currencies had a positive impact of €40 million (+0.7% of last year’s sales)

Growth at constant currencies included a bolt-on contribution of €106 million from the JV with BYD in Asia (in H1).

Sales in the 9 months were impacted, as expected, by the end of production of complete seat programs, for a combined negative amount of €397 million (representing 7.2% of last year’s sales).

Strong order book recorded in recent years, with a positive product mix (including two major frame programs), confirms market gain and solid growth prospects for Seating, starting late 2020 and strongly accelerating as from 2021.

    • Down 1.5% at constant currenciesand excl. Clarion scope effect, outperforming by 160bps worldwide automotive production (-3.1%, source: IHS Markit dated October 2019)
    • Currencies had a positive impact of €31 million (+2.6% of last year’s sales)

Sales in the quarter posted growth with PSA in Europe, FCA and Tesla in North America as well as Hyundai and Chinese OEMs in Asia. This growth did not fully offset challenging market conditions faced by other OEMs.

  • In 9 months, sales amounted to €3,939 million (vs. €3,981 million in 9m 2018)
    • Down 1.0% on a reported basis

    • Currencies had a positive impact of €21 million (+2.0% of last year’s sales)

Sales growth in the quarter reflected outperformance in all regions: +80bps in Europe, +1,080bps in North America, +90bps in Asia and +580bps in South America. It was mainly driven by sales growth with VW, Ford, GM and Hyundai.

PROJECT TO ACQUIRE REMAINING 50% OF SAS TO EXPAND SYSTEMS INTEGRATION OFFER AND COVER ALL INTERIOR MODULES


On October 14, Faurecia announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to acquire the remaining 50% of its SAS joint venture from Continental.

This joint venture was established in 1996 and has become a key player in complex interior module assembly. It employs 4, 490 people in 19 facilities in Europe, North America and South America. 

With the addition of SAS core competences in systems integration and complexity management this project will strengthen Faurecia’s Just-In-Time plants network. It will also expand Faurecia’s systems integration offer to cover all interior modules as well as Faurecia’s new product lines such as displays, electronics, sensors and thermal management.

Sales (IFRS15) are expected to reach c. €700 million in 2019, vs. €663 million in 2018.

With an order book showing strong growth potential, sales should exceed €1 billion in 2024 (representing a CAGR of c. 9%). Growth will be accelerated through regional and customer diversification based on Faurecia’s global customer intimacy particularly in China.

Faurecia would acquire the 50% share of the joint venture from Continental for €225 million (excluding cash).

This project is immediately accretive to Faurecia in operating margin, net income and ROCE.

It is subject to employee consultations and to the appropriate regulatory approvals.

Closing is expected in early 2020 and SAS will be consolidated into the Interiors Business Group.


2019 GUIDANCE FULLY CONFIRMED, DEMONSTRATING GROUP STRONG RESILIENCE
IN A TOUGHER THAN EXPECTED ENVIRONMENT


Faurecia confirms all its full-year 2019 financial targets.

These targets are confirmed under the updated assumption that worldwide automotive production is now expected to be down by close to 6% in 2019 vs. 2018.

This represents a drop of c. 4.5 million vehicles, compared with the initial assumption (early 2019) that worldwide automotive production should be down c. 1% in 2019 vs. 2018.

Based on this updated assumption and including the impact of IFRS16 implementation as of January 1, 2019, Faurecia’s full-year 2019 financial targets remain unchanged:

  • Sales growth at constant currencies should outperform worldwide automotive production by 150 to 350bps (excluding Clarion consolidation)
     
  • Operating income should increase in value and operating margin should be at least 7% (including Clarion consolidation as from April 1)
     
  • Net cash flow should be at least €500m (including Clarion consolidation as from April 1)

This confirmation of full-year 2019 financial targets, despite a worsening environment since the beginning of the year,demonstrates the strong resilience of Faurecia’s business model and financial performance.

Main currency assumptions: USD/€ @ 1.14 on average and CNY/€ @ 7.71 on average

Definition of Sales growth

Faurecia’s year-on-year sales evolution is made of three components:

  • A “Currency effect”, calculated by applying average currency rates for the period to the sales of the prior year,
  • A “Scope effect” (acquisition/divestment),
  • And “Growth at constant currencies”.

As scope effect, Faurecia presents all acquisitions/divestments, whose sales on an annual basis amount to more than €250 million.

Other acquisitions below this threshold are considered as “bolt-on acquisitions” and are included in “Growth at constant currencies”.
