2020 GUIDANCE ON TRACK TO ACHIEVE MEDIUM-TERM AMBITIONS
With the assumption that worldwide automotive production should be down c. 3% in 2020, Faurecia’s full-year 2020 guidance is as follows:

  • Solid reported sales growth, including:
    • a scope effect representing c. 500bps of sales growth (3 months of Clarion + 11 months of SAS),
    • an outperformance of 100 to 200bps vs. worldwide automotive production (at constant scope & currencies)
  • Improvement in profitability, with operating margin above 7.2% of sales
  • Continued strong cash generation, with net cash flow above €500 million

Patrick KOLLER, CEO of Faurecia, declared:

“In 2019, we further demonstrated our resilience in a very challenging environment whilst continuing to deploy our transformation strategy. We achieved all our financial targets thanks to our agility to adapt to market conditions that worsened during the year. At the same time, we actively implemented our strategy focused on the Cockpit of the Future and Sustainable Mobility. We created our new Business Group, Faurecia Clarion Electronics, which has a clear and robust roadmap for profitable growth, and we acquired the remaining 50% stake in SAS that we will consolidate as from this year. We also continued our investment in Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles through the creation of a 50/50 joint venture with Michelin. I thank all Faurecia teams for their effective contribution to the strong performance of 2019 and would like in particular to offer our support and sympathy to our colleagues in China.

2020 should be another challenging year in terms of market conditions. We expect, at this stage, a drop of about 3% in worldwide automotive production. We have the appropriate plans in place to improve our performance. We will remain focused on resilience and cash generation. Our guidance is fully aligned with our medium-term vision and ambitions presented last November at our Capital Markets Day.

In 2020, we will accelerate the deployment of our convictions through our key initiatives including a strong focus on Total Customer Satisfaction and our program to become CO2 Neutral by 2030. Our objective is to ensure sustainable value creation for all of Faurecia’s stakeholders.”

  • Operating margin of 7.2%; in line with the guidance of at least 7.0%
  • Operating margin of 7.4% excluding Clarion, which had a dilutive impact of 20bps

The resilience of operating margin despite a strong negative impact from volume/mix of €188 million was achieved thanks to cost savings of €175 million generated by the Group’s three global cost optimization programs and resilience actions put in place as early as the second half of 2018 for cost flexibilization.

             

Net cash flow of €587.0m, up 11.2% year-on-year

  • Well above the guidance of at least €500 million
  • Including a positive impact from the disposal of Clarion’s HQ in Saitama for €110 million and a negative impact from higher restructuring (€73 million year-on-year) and lower factoring of receivables (€57 million).

Strong order intake reflects Faurecia’s capability to attract new business and continue gaining market share.

In 2019, Faurecia also received 48 customer awards demonstrating high recognition, operational excellence and customer satisfaction.


SALES AND PROFITABILITY BY BUSINESS GROUP


Seating (39% of Group sales)

* including bolt-ons for €106.1m      

Sales

  • Sales were down 6.2% on a reported basis and down 6.9% at constant currencies.
  • The ex-currency sales drop of €517 million was mostly driven by the temporary negative impact from EoPs (End of Production) representing €511 million or 6.8% of last year’s sales.

  • The negative impact from EoPs will gradually decrease to c. €100 million in Q1 and c. €40 million in Q2 2020.
  • Conversely, the positive impact from SoPs (Start of Production) will gradually contribute to sales growth as from Q4 2020 and accelerate in 2021.

Faurecia’s sound financial structure is supported by strong discipline and secured financing flexibility.

Through recent refinancing operations, Faurecia has an average long-term cost of financing below 2.5%, with no significant long-term debt repayment before June 2025:

  • Strong financial flexibility through an undrawn €1.2 billion syndicated credit facility with maturity June 2024,
  • Significantly improved terms and conditions through recent refinancing operations.

Faurecia’s ratings (BB+/Ba1 with stable outlook) were recently reaffirmed by all three rating agencies.

INCREASE IN PROPOSED DIVIDEND TO €1.30 PER SHARE

The Board of Directors will propose at the next Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, to be held in Paris on May 29, the payment of a dividend of €1.30 per share vs. the dividend of €1.25 paid last year.

It will be paid in cash early June.

The dividend increase reflects the Group’s confidence in its capability to generate profitable growth and enhanced cash flow as well as its commitment to create shareholder value.

OUTLOOK

In an environment that offers low visibility, Faurecia’s current assumption is that worldwide automotive production should be down c. 3% in 2020 vs. 2019. There should be a strong seasonality, with the first quarter being the weakest of the year and expected to post a drop in double digits, mostly impacted by Asia and Europe.

Based on this assumption, Faurecia’s full-year 2020 financial targets are the following:

  • Solid reported sales growth, including:
    • a scope effect representing c. 500bps of sales growth (3 months of Clarion + 11 months of SAS)
    • an outperformance of 100 to 200bps vs. worldwide automotive production (at constant scope & currencies)
  • Improvement in profitability, with operating margin above 7.2% of sales
  • Continued strong cash generation, with net cash flow above €500 million

            Main currency assumptions: USD/€ @ 1.15 average and CNY/€ @ 7.80 average

This guidance does not include the risk of a possible impact of Covid-19 on the global supply chain.

The 2020 guidance is fully aligned with the medium-term 2022 ambitions that Faurecia presented at its Capital Markets Day of November 26, 2019:

  • Sales should exceed €20.5 billion
  • Operating margin should reach 8% of sales
  • Net cash flow should reach 4% of sales

APPENDICES


Definitions of terms used in this document

1.     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”.

  1. Operating income
    Operating income is the Faurecia group’s principal performance indicator. It corresponds to net income of fully consolidated companies before:
    • Amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations;
    • Other non-recurring operating income and expense, corresponding to material, unusual and non-recurring items including reorganization expenses and early retirement costs, the impact of exceptional events such as the discontinuation of a business, the closure or sale of an industrial site, disposals of non-operating buildings, impairment losses recorded for property, plant and equipment or intangible assets, as well as other material and unusual losses;
    • Income on loans, cash investments and marketable securities; Finance costs;
    • Other financial income and expense, which include the impact of discounting the pension benefit obligation and the return on related plan assets, the ineffective portion of interest rate and currency hedges, changes in value of interest rate and currency instruments for which the hedging relationship does not satisfy the criteria set forth in relationship cannot be demonstrated under IFRS 9, and gains and losses on sales of shares in subsidiaries;
    • Taxes.
  2. Net cash-flow
    Net cash-flow is defined as follow: Net cash from (used in) operating and investing activities less (acquisitions)/disposal of equity interests and businesses (net of cash and cash equivalents), other changes and proceeds from disposal of financial assets. Repayment of IFRS 16 debt is not included.
  3. Net financial debt
    Net financial debt is defined as follow: Gross financial debt less cash and cash equivalents and derivatives classified under non-current and current assets. It includes the lease liabilities (IFRS 16 debt).

Summary of IFRS16 impacts

IFRS16 is the new standard on leases, with first application on January 1, 2019

  • All lease contracts are accounted in the balance sheet through:
    • an asset, representing the “Right to Use” the leased asset along the contract duration, and
    • the corresponding liability, representing the lease payments obligation

Faurecia is using the simplified retrospective method, according to which there is no restatement of comparative periods
