A resilient business model, R&D strategic investments

In a 2020/2021 financial year marked by an unprecedented economic and health context, Generix Group recorded a €80.3 million revenue (-1% vs. 2019/2020). Adjusted for exchange rate volatility, revenues would show growth of 1%, driven in particular by North America.

At the end of March 2021, EBITDA was €9.9 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 12.3%. The 4.4 point decrease in EBITDA margin compared to the end of March 2020 is almost entirely (4.1 points) the result of the additional investment in R&D that the Group is implementing to respond to the market potential revealed by the crisis. Indeed, production and distribution systems have been subject to major disruptions linked to supply disruptions and very erratic demand in terms of volume and time. Changes in purchasing behavior and resource constraints have had a major impact on production and distribution costs. These changes have put supply chain back at the heart of companies' strategies, and in this context Generix Group intends to consolidate its leading position by completing its offer. Excluding growth in R&D investments, the EBITDA margin will be down by a limited 0.3 point, thanks to the adaptation of the cost structure initiated in April 2020 to limit the impact of the health crisis.

Non-cash items showed a positive trend, with current operating income of €7.2 million, or 9% of revenues.

After taking into account non-recurring items, financial income and the tax effect, net income was €5.1 million, compared with €3.5 million the previous year. As a reminder, the tax charge for the previous year was impacted by a negative €3.2 million by the updating of future tax rates in the calculation of deferred taxes following the application of the preferential industrial property regime (IP Box).

A healthy and solid financial structure

For the fiscal year 2020/2021, cash flows are mainly marked by:

  • A decrease in cash flow from operations from €12.4 million to €9.5 million as of March 31, 2021, to be compared with the decrease in EBITDA observed during the year;

  • A significant improvement in working capital requirements, due in particular to improvement in customer payment delays;

  • The acquisition of Generix Soft Group Romania for €3.4 million, financed by a loan of €3.0 million.

Prospects

Continued momentum in the signing of new contracts, as well as investments in R&D and development in North America, enable the Group to anticipate double-digit growth and a stable EBITDA margin for the 2021/2022 financial year.
