Our third quarter trend is as we anticipated in our most recent communication
at the end of July. Companies operating in the consumer channel slowed sharply
in terms of turnover (-10.1% compared to 2020 and +16.9% compared to 2019),
those in the professional channels are holding up better, partly thanks to
inflation (+10.8% compared to 2020 and +16.5% compared to 2019).
Our longest-standing subsidiary, Thermador, continues to perform exceptionally.
Its main Italian suppliers (Caleffi, DAB, Cordivari and Zilmet) remain
steadfastly behind it and are investing to support its growth in the vast
energy renovation market.
Internationally, our sales teams can once again travel to physically visit
their customers. Syveco's return to growth could thus be confirmed.
INVENTORY AND SUPPLY CHAIN
We are pleased to report that the decline in stock levels has halted (EUR138
million compared to EUR117 million at the end of June). We owe this to our
purchasing teams and strong relationships with our suppliers. They are
historically located in Europe (2/3rds of our purchases in value), where we
note few delivery delays. As experienced by all the players in the market, we
face major difficulties in Asia. Indeed, our Chinese partners are often forced
to limit the activity of their factories to 2, 3 or 4 days a week, depending on
the region and the rhythm of the power cuts imposed by the authorities. To
date, of 80,000 listed items, 1,400 are not immediately available, representing
approximately 4.5% of our turnover for a full year. This does not mean that
this activity is totally lost, as our customers seem willing to accept limited
additional delays. Often, our staff are able to propose alternative solutions,
whilst our competitors are frequently less well-placed than us.
We are likely to see erosion of our gross margin at the end of the second
half-year, as not all price increases have yet been fully passed on.
Nevertheless, we expect a record year in terms of turnover and operating profit
thanks to great efficiency amongst our employees.
The confirmation of the public authorities' support for the Ma Prime Rénov'
scheme to the tune of EUR2 billion bodes well for the construction business,
and especially renovation. At the same time, energy suppliers will continue to
finance energy renovation via energy saving certificates, all of which
represents a financial windfall that will undoubtedly be difficult to exploit
to the full, due to a lack of human resources - and perhaps even of equipment -
A minima, and all activities combined, the additional delays announced by our
Chinese suppliers will have an impact on deliveries over the next 9 months.
Given our extraordinary turnover between January and June 2021 (cf: our letter
to shareholders n°103), the first half of 2022 is shaping up to be a huge
challenge. This does not dampen the optimism of the managers of the
subsidiaries who are preparing for the future by recruiting new talent. Hence,
our head-count has increased from 684 to 714 people within the space of three
