  • Roll-out of Transform 2025 plan

  • Appointment of Emmanuelle Sarrabay to the Executive Board

SAINT-JEAN-DE-SOUDAIN, France, April 23, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

SergeFerrari Group (FR0011950682 – SEFER) (Paris::SEFER), a leading global supplier of innovative flexible composite materials, listed on Euronext Paris – Compartment C, today announces its revenues for Q1 2024.

Sébastien Baril, SergeFerrari Group’s Chairman of the Executive Board, stated: "As anticipated, our core activities continued to suffer during the first quarter. In this context, we are reinforcing the activation of the various levers of the Transform 2025 plan to improve the Group's profitability profile. The launch of the plan in 2023 has already enabled us to achieve its first effects, and we intend to deploy the remaining measures and bring them to their full potential throughout 2024.

2024 First-Quarter Revenues

The Group reported revenues of €73.5 million for the first quarter of 2024, down -13.4% at current scope and exchange rates and -14.1% at constant scope and exchange rates, compared with the first three months of 2023, when growth was +7.3%, driven by the final effects of price increases and the acquisition of MSE, DCS and Baltijos Tentas.

The level of activity is thus explained by the combined effects of a -11.8% fall in volumes sold and a -1.8% price effect over the period. Changes in the scope of consolidation contributed +1.3% to revenues for the first three months of 2024 (Markleen acquired on April 1st, 2023), while the exchange rate effect was -0.5%.

Over the quarter, the environment observed in 2023 continued to weigh on the core activities.

Transform 2025 plan

In the first three months of 2024, the Group strengthened the various levers of the Transform plan to enable it to increase its profitability in the short and medium term and optimize the allocation of its resources. SergeFerrari Group is continuing to adapt its cost structure to ever shorter economic cycles, in particular by intensifying its industrial and logistics reorganization in Europe.

Governance

Emmanuelle Sarrabay will join SergeFerrari Group on June 3, 2024. As a member of the Executive Board, she will be in charge of Finance and Information Systems and will support the SergeFerrari Group in implementing its Transform 2025 Plan and securing the financing needed to ensure its development. Emmanuelle Sarrabay held finance and general management positions, including Deputy Managing Director in charge of Finance and Information Systems at OL Groupe, one of France's leading listed sports and events companies.

Outlook 2024

The Group will be pursuing and intensifying the axes of its Transform 2025 plan over the coming months with a view to regaining momentum in its historic markets by the end of the year.
