O'KEY GROUP ANNOUNCES OPERATING RESULTS FOR Q1 2018

 

 

O'KEY Group S.A. (LSE: OKEY, the 'Group'), one of the leading Russian food retailers, announces its unaudited operating results for the first quarter of 2018.

 

All materials published by the Group are available on its website www.okeyinvestors.ru.

Q1 2018 operating highlights

  • Group net retail revenue decreased by 6.9% YoY to RUB 39,840 mln from RUB 42,797 mln. The revenue decline was primarily influenced by the unwinding of the supermarket business in December 2017 and January 2018. Group net retail revenue, adjusted for the sale of the supermarket business, decreased by 0.7% YoY;
  • Net retail revenue generated by O'KEY decreased by 9.1% YoY to RUB 36,909 mln. Adjusted for the sale of the supermarkets business, net retail revenue decreased by 2.7% YoY as a result of the closure of hypermarkets in Cherepovets and Sterlitamak in Q2 2017, the temporary closure of a hypermarket in Moscow in Q3 2017 and growing competitive pressures;
  • Net retail revenue generated by DA! grew by 35.9% YoY to RUB 2,931 mln, supported by stable dynamics in traffic (up 32.1% YoY) and average ticket (up 3.0% YoY);
  • Like-for-like (LFL) net retail revenue of the Group marginally decreased by 0.7% YoY, mainly driven by weaker than expected results in January, while February and March saw sequential improvement, driven by better promotional campaigns;
  • Like-for-like (LFL) net retail revenue generated by O'KEY decreased by 1.6% YoY, on the back of a 2.5% YoY decline in LFL traffic and a 0.9% YoY increase in LFL average ticket;
  • Like-for-like (LFL) net retail revenue generated by DA! increased by 15.9% YoY, bolstered by a 12.7% YoY increase in LFL traffic and a 2.9% YoY increase in LFL average ticket.

Guidance

  • We expect net retail revenue generated by our hypermarkets business (excluding the supermarkets business) to grow by low single digits in 2018, with new stores openings limited to two. We anticipate the EBITDA margin will be within a range of 7-8% in 2018-2020. In 2020 we expect growth to accelerate as a consequence of improved sales density and new store additions;
  • We forecast net retail revenue generated by our discounters business to grow by approximately 50% YoY in 2018, driven by the opening of up to 30 new stores and improved sales density. EBITDA loss is expected to decline by up to 50% YoY.

The unwinding of the supermarkets business, effective from the beginning of December 2017 and continuing into January 2018, weighed most heavily on the Company's revenue dynamic in Q1 2018. Adjusted for the sale of the supermarket business, net retail revenue dynamics remained largely unchanged from the corresponding period last year, primarily influenced by growing competitive pressures, the temporary closure of a hypermarket in Moscow and the closure of hypermarkets in Cherepovets and Sterlitamak. The poor performance in January 2018 was for the most part attributable to a decline in average price per item on the back of slowdown in food inflation and less effective marketing campaigns throughout the month. However, in February and March 2018, the Company's like-for-like performance demonstrated the first signs of recovery, underpinned by the catch-up in average ticket which was driven by an increase in items purchased per client as a result of efficient promotional activities. Remaining focused on the improvement of the hypermarkets price perception in Q1 2018, the Company continued to enhance the quality of marketing initiatives and promotional assortment zoning. The share of announced promotions increased by almost 10% YoY to 27% as at the end of Q1 2018, attributable to more proactive communication with customers. The Company continues to put considerable effort into enhancing the customer value proposition in line with the 'best value for money' concept and increasing the overall efficiency of business processes.

Total sales amounted to RUB 2.9 bn in the first quarter, compared to RUB 2.2 bn for the same period last year. Stable and consistent growth in traffic and average ticket, driven by increasing customer loyalty, supported revenue this quarter. During the quarter, the Company continued to enhance the commercial model by fine-tuning the private label assortment, implementing various marketing initiatives and improving the overall customer experience. New discounter openings are expected to accelerate from Q2 2018 onwards.
