29/07/2022 - 08:15

First-half revenues up +8.6%

+2.8% growth for the Boat division, with nearly 15% of growth cut as a result of deferred billing linked to the supply chain disruption.
Record revenues for the Housing division (€167m, +33%)
Expected increase in income from ordinary operations for the first half of the year, supported by the margins maintained despite inflation
Outlook for revenues maintained and income from ordinary operations forecast confirmed for 2022 
Group revenues came to €715m for the first half of 2022 (January-June), with +8.6% growth (+6.4% at constant exchange rates).

“The boat and leisure home markets have continued to perform very well. The disruption affecting supply chains slowed our rate of growth during the first half of the year, with nearly €80m of billing deferred to the second half of the year, representing around 15% of the Boat division’s revenues. However, this will not affect our roadmap for profitability, which is continuing to benefit from the adaptation measures rolled out over the past two years and the realignment of our development around the Group’s profitable brands and segments as part of our Let’s Go Beyond strategic plan”, explains Bruno Thivoyon, Chief Executive Officer.

Boat division: robust trends supported by dayboating and the upturn in fleets.

During the first half of 2022, the Boat division generated revenues of €548.2m, with year-on-year growth of +2.8%, held back by the disruption affecting supply chains, which stabilized in the second quarter.

At June 30, 2022, around 600 finished boats were not able to be shipped and therefore billed, equivalent to the level from March 31, 2022. The deliveries of these boats that have been ordered will therefore be deferred to the second half of the year, with more than €80m of billing deferred, representing around 15% of the Boat division’s first-half revenues.

Supported by the dayboating segments (motorboats up to 40 feet), revenues for the Motorboat business represent 57% of the Boat division’s revenues for the first half of 2022.

In Europe, revenues contracted by -7.7%, as a result of the disruption to supply chains, which affected large units in particular, as well as the rationalization of the brand portfolio (notably Monte Carlo Yachts and CNB Yachts, which were recording losses).

However, in North America, business was particularly strong (+15% at constant exchange rates), buoyed by the development of the dayboating segments, the turnaround by the American brands and the growth of the Beneteau, Jeanneau and Lagoon brands. In this region, the Group has also continued moving forward with its strategy to develop the Boat Club business, opening five new daily rental centers, particularly in Florida.

The first half of 2022 was also marked by a return to growth in fleet sales with charter professionals (+21.6%), which are seeing strong growth in their levels of weekly rental bookings for this season.
