As anticipated, the first half of 2021 marks an inflection point in terms of activity with a second quarter that is back to growth.
The restructuring plan initiated in mid-2020 has enabled the company to lower its breakeven point by nearly €2 million per month, the EBITDA for the first half of the year has become positive again at €1.8 million.
The balance sheet has been strengthened with equity at €55.2 million (+20%) and the net debt, including "COVID" social debts and state-guaranteed loans, downs to €10.9 million, i.e. -47.8% in one year.
The contribution by division is the following:
The aerospace division benefited in the 2nd quarter from the beginning of a recovery in commercial aviation, the resumption of activity in Germany after restructuring, and good activity in business aviation and space.
The simulation division suffered the consequences of the ransomware which froze the railway activity for one month and has cost approximately €1M.
The vehicle division is going on its commercial investments in protection vehicle offer against improvised explosive.
With an improving profitability and a solid balance sheet, SOGECLAIR confirms its forecast of a profitable 2021 financial year.
The "ONE SOGECLAIR" transformation plan, which will provide a revamped offer more premium and a more flexible organization, aims at a significant improvement in performance beyond that of the years before COVID.
The arrival of Olivier Pedron (ex Collins Aerospace) guides this plan.
