Sébastien Baril, Chairman of the SergeFerrari Group Executive Board, states: "In 2023, the economic situation in our historical markets, particularly in Europe, weighed on our performance. This effect was partially offset by the sustained momentum of the SOLUTIONS division, driven by the Biogas business, thereby strengthening our development outlook in these high-potential markets. As the first half of 2024 does not forecast a break with the trends of 2023, the Company will be relying on its Transform 2025 plan to strengthen and consolidate its profitability profile, which will be presented when the full-year results will be published, on March 26, 2024."

Activity as of December 31, 2023: revenues of €327.6 million

Group revenues for 2023 amounted to €327.6 million, down -3.3% on a current scope and exchange rate basis, and -6.8% on a constant scope and exchange rate basis.

This trend is largely due to:

- A -4.4% drop in the Europe region's revenues compared with 2022 at current scope and exchange rate, and -10.6% at constant scope and exchange rate. Revenues in Europe continue to be impacted by the persistently weak momentum in the last quarter in the Furniture and Solar Protection segments. There was also an unfavorable exchange rate effect on the Turkish lira in 2023.

- The Americas region's revenues continued to grow despite a very high base effect (record year 2022), with growth of +2.5% on a constant scope and exchange rate basis, and around +1.1% on a current scope and exchange rate basis, especially thanks to a strong momentum in the Marine and Tensile Architecture markets.

- The Asia-Pacific-Middle East-Africa region also maintained its growth momentum on a constant scope and exchange rate basis, with a +3.2% increase, following a +16.2% performance in 2022. However, the Group's performance in the Industry and Solar Protection markets was unfavorably impacted by a particularly negative exchange rate effect (-€.2.6 million) recorded in this region and affecting all invoicing currencies (yen, yuan, rupiah and Taiwanese dollar), resulting in a -1.2% variation on a current scope and exchange rate basis.

The scope effect contributed +4.7% to annual revenue growth, while the price mix effect was +3.7%. The exchange rate effect was -1.1% and the volume effect -10.6%.

4th quarter 2023 activity: revenues of €80.6 million

Revenues for the 4th quarter of 2023 stood at €79.1 million, down -11.2% on a current scope and exchange rate basis, and -10.8% on a constant scope and exchange rate basis, compared with the 4th quarter of the 2022 financial year.

The overall trend observed during this 4th quarter is the result of:

  • A scope effect of +1.4% (+€1.2 million), resulting from the integration of acquisitions and the contribution of the Solutions business (composite materials processing);

  • A negative price-mix effect of -1.7%;

  • A volume effect of -9.1%, mainly due to a downturn in the building, renovation and consumer equipment sectors;

  • The Group's international sales exposure, affected by the unfavorable exchange parity trend, which came to -1.8%, or - €1.6 million.

Outlook

With market recovery only expected in the 2nd half of 2024, the Group will focus on the 1st half of 2024 on deploying the measures initiated at the end of 2023 through the TRANSFORM 2025 plan, which aims to improve profitability and optimize resource allocation, enhanced by using part-time working in the 1st quarter of 2024. The first measures to reduce working capital by optimizing the Group's supply chain are already showing positive effects in the 4th quarter. The Group is confident of achieving its adjusted target of an operating margin of 3% of revenues for 2023.
