Capital Markets Day Highlights
Sales target: 1.8 - 1.9 billion euros in 2025
Maisons du Monde is targeting full-year 2025 sales of between 1.8 and 1.9 billion euros, through a high single-digit sales growth CAGR over the 2022-2025 period. The 500 to 600 million euros increase over the period will be equally weighted between:
An expanded online activity (direct sales and marketplace), the GMV of which is expected to post a 15% to 20% CAGR over the 2022-2025 period,
Growing store sales, including 30-50 net store openings over the plan, mostly outside France.
By channel, we expect that by 2025, digital will represent c. 60% of total sales, approximately two thirds of which is coming from online direct sales and the remainder from the further development of click-in-store purchases. The marketplace is expected to reach 200-250 million euros of GMV by 2025 and should represent around 25% of online sales.
In terms of geographical split, approximately half of the growth is expected to come from France, 30% from our established international footprint (Italy, Spain, Belgium and Luxembourg) and the remaining 20% coming from our new markets (Germany, Switzerland, the UK, the Netherlands, Portugal and Austria).
Profitability target: EBIT margin c. 11% by 2025
The Group expects to generate close to 200 million euros of EBIT in 2025, with an associated margin of around 11%. This represents a 150 to 200 basis point increase compared to the 9.0% to 9.5% of our 2021 EBIT margin guidance range. About half of this improvement will be reflected in EBITDA thanks to a stable gross margin, including the accretive effect of the marketplace, more efficient logistics and SG&A cost optimization. The other half will be achieved in light of lower D&A via a more digital model and a disciplined capex plan.
Free Cash Flow: 350 million euros over the plan…
The Group expects to deliver c. 350 million euros of cumulative free cash flow over the 2022-2025 period through:
Leveraging its profitable growth model and low debt level,
Maintaining strict discipline on capex allocation, and
Optimizing its working capital requirement level.
… funding growth and fueling shareholder return: 30%-40% payout ratio over 2022-2025
In the near term, Maisons du Monde plans to bring its inventory back to a normalized level and to keep strengthening its organization to secure its capacity to create sustainable value over time. Over the medium term, the Group will have the financial ability to explore new revenue streams as opportunities arise. Cash return to shareholders will remain at a high level throughout the plan, with a payout ratio between 30% and 40%.
Reinforced ESG commitments
Maisons du Monde has just released its company purpose: “Inspiring everyone to open up to the world so that we create unique, heartful and sustainable places, together.” In the light of this vision, the strategic importance of ESG has been reinforced and the Group has set several ambitious targets over the 2022-2025 timeframe:
