AutoWallis Nyilvánosan Muködo Reszvenytársaság : Flash report on the Q3 2021 performance of the AutoWallis Group

12/01/2021 | 10:11am EST


AutoWallis's momentum continues: The listed automotive company reports very strong

nine months

Budapest, November 30, 2021 - AutoWallis has reported strong results for the past nine months: the EBITDA of the corporation exceeded HUF 5.7 billion, meaning that the listed automotive company is likely to surpass its yearly plan of HUF 5.5-6.2 billion. The Group generated a revenue of HUF 145.4 billion in the first nine months of the year, with its margin production having grown by nearly 10 percent, and its EBITDA margin having increased from 3 to 3.9 percent.

Having closed a strong quarter, the AutoWallis Group is progressing towards achieving the goals outlined in its strategy: the listed automotive company generated a revenue of HUF 145.4 billion in the first three quarters of the year, more than doubling its previous performance by realizing a 132 percent increase compared to the same period a year earlier. Both business units of the Group contributed to the growth, despite the economic environment having been adversely impacted by the repeated introduction of restrictions in response to the succeeding waves of the coronavirus pandemic, the slowing down of automotive production and supply due to the shortage of chips, as well as the sluggish recovery of the tourism sector. AutoWallis's growth was significantly higher than that of the EU or the regional automotive market: the passenger vehicle market expanded by 6.6 percent in the EU and by 10.8 percent in Central Eastern Europe, which is the market relevant for the AutoWallis Group. In contrast, the corporation increased its new vehicle sales almost fourfold (by 271 percent) to 17,587 units, with transactions and acquisitions completed in 2020 accounting for 231 percentage points and organic growth making up 40 percentage points of the increase. The latter figure is in itself several times the average market growth in the region. Gábor

Ormosy, the CEO of AutoWallis, highlighted in this respect that the volume of vehicle orders gives reason for optimism concerning vehicle sales; however, the temporary or longer-termdisruptions in chip supplies affecting certain brands may negatively influence the anticipated sales numbers, i.e., the number of cars actually delivered in the coming period. The CEO pointed out that the earnings and the efficiency of the company rose even faster than its revenue: the EBITDA, which AutoWallis's management considers to be the best indicator of profitability, surged more than three-fold(+201%) to HUF 5.7 billion. The positive trend is underscored by the Group having increased its margin production by ten percent, from 12.3 to 13.4 percent. This is primarily due to the fact that AutoWallis managed to implement a successful and efficient pricing policy, taking into account market demands and price sensitivity, both in its procurements and in its sales. As a result of these effects, the Group's total comprehensive income was a profit of HUF 2.2 billion, compared to the loss reported last year, while the earnings per share (EPS) stood at HUF 6.43. In its latest profit forecast for the year, the corporation predicted a revenue between HUF 191-212billion and an EBITDA between HUF 5.5-6.2billion. Due to the fourth wave of the Covid-19pandemic and the shortage of chips, delays in production times will lead to deferred vehicle deliveries despite the high volume of orders, as a result of which the annual revenue will remain below HUF 190 billion; nonetheless, the corporation expects a continuing increase in its margin production capacity and profitability, which will enable it to achieve an EBITDA of about HUF 6 billion.

The AutoWallis Group's Distribution Business Unit increased its revenue almost three-fold, reaching HUF 86.2 billion (+192%). The growth was primarily driven by the increased volume of new vehicle sales, particularly in the case of the Opel and SsangYong brands. The Retail & Services

Business Unit increased its revenue by 79 percent to HUF 59.2 billion in the first nine months of the year. At the beginning of the year, restrictions related to Covid-19 still limited car rental possibilities; however, with the lifting or relaxing of restrictions and the increase of tourism, the number of rental days started rising. The field experienced substantial growth in the first nine months of the year, with the number of rental days increasing by 101 percent, and the number of rental events increasing by 51 percent. The margin production capacity of the Retail & Services Business Unit also showed further improvement, reaching 17.6 percent in 2021, compared to last year's 15.5 percent, largely due to the efficient pricing policy applied in the Distribution Business Unit as well.

The AutoWallis Group continued to operate with growing efficiency in the first three quarters of the year: the rate of increase in the cost of goods sold (CoGS) was 3 percent lower than that of revenue growth, leading to the corporation's margin production going up from 12.2 percent to 13.4 percent. The 181 percent rise in personnel expenses was primarily a result of the transactions carried out last year, which led to a rise of the average wage and an increase of the AutoWallis Group's average statistical headcount by 150 to 706. Financial gains or losses decreased by 62 percent to HUF 355 million.
