NEXITY RAISES ITS GUIDANCE
Nexity performed better than expected under the second lockdown, and its business activity was less affected during Q4 2020 than expected. In particular, signed notarial deeds of sale and progress on construction sites stayed at satisfactory levels. In Commercial Real Estate, business was boosted by the marketing of major programmes, including Reiwa in Saint-Ouen (Seine-Saint-Denis), the eco-business park in La Garenne-Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine), and Network II in Bagneux (Hauts-de-Seine).
Based on these elements, the Group has raised the guidance announced on 28 October when it reported its business activity and revenue for the first nine months of 2020:
New home reservations for 2020 is to be equivalent to that of 2019 and above the estimated 20,000 units anticipated, supporting a strong increase in its market share.
Order intake for Commercial Real Estate reaching a record high in 2020, totalling €1.5 billion.
Nexity is now aiming for revenue of around €4.7 billion in 2020 (instead of at least €4.2 billion), with a current operating margin of more than 5% (instead of around 5%) and for 2021, on a like-for-like basis, revenue of around €4.7 billion with a current operating margin above 7%.
Net financial debt (before lease liabilities) less than €800 million at 31 December 2020 (instead of less than €1.2 billion).
Development pipeline (backlog + land under options) of around €20 billion at year-end 2020.
