PRESS RELEASE

08/11/2021

Revenue up 16.7%
over the first 9 months of the year
2021 objectives confirmed

Increase in revenue of 16.7% since 1st January

In the 3rd quarter of 2021, LACROIX revenue was €110.3 million, down by 7.6%. As expected, this development reflects increased disruptions relating to the shortage of components and project delays. Despite all this, sales momentum remains strong across all Group activities.

In total, LACROIX revenue for the first 9 months of the year was €365.1 million, compared with €312.9 million, up 16.7% compared with the same period in 2020 and stable compared with pre-crisis levels. All activities contributed to growth over the period.

The absence of significant scope effects should be noted over the quarter and in total.

Note: Due to the change in closing date, the period from July to September 2020 corresponds to the 4th quarter of the 2019/2020 fiscal year.

Electronics Activity

In the 3rd quarter of 2021, Electronics Activity revenue was €70.5 million, down 6.1% compared with the previous year. This downturn logically relates to disruptions in the availability of components and the indirect consequences of plant shutdowns at several auto manufacturers over the period.

From 1st January 2021, Electronics Activity revenue has reached €238.3 million, up 21.5% compared with the first 9 months of 2020 and very slightly down compared with the same period in 2019 (-1.6%).

City Activity

As in the first two quarters of the year, City Activity was driven primarily by good momentum in the Street Lighting and V2X segments, while the Traffic and Signalling segments were hit by project delays and an unfavourable base effect (rebound in post-COVID activity over the period July to September 2020). It posted revenue of €23.9 million in the 3rd quarter, compared with €26.7 million in 2020, i.e. down 10.4%.

In total, City Activity was up 11.1% compared to 2020. It is stable compared with 2019, at €76.6 million
(-0.6%).

Environment Activity

For its part, Environment Activity revenue was €15.9 million in the 3rd quarter of 2021, down 9.8%, an evolution explained by an unfavourable comparison basis compared to the period from July to September 2020 during which revenue increased by 17.4%. In addition, the Smart Grid segment remains very strong, although temporarily impacted in July by the floods in Germany.

Environment Activity year-to-date revenue was €50.3 million, up 5.1% compared with the same period in 2020. Compared to the same period in 2019, business grew by 9.4%.

Annual objectives maintained

LACROIX expects a good level of activity and the pass-through of higher component and raw material prices allowing it to reach the objective of €500 million revenue by the end of the financial year. This objective remains subject to stability in the electronics component supply situation.

LACROIX also confirms its objective of a current EBITDA margin between 5.8% and 6.1%.
