Production: 10% organic growth in the first six months of 2022
For the first half of the year, the group posted revenue of €549.8 million. This +10.0% growth in production on a like-for-like basis stands in comparison to an already historic level of growth in the first half of 2021. It demonstrates HEXAOM's capacity to deal with the growing supply times affecting all the construction industry.
For the second quarter of 2022, Hexaom posted revenue of €289.3 million, up +7.5% compared to the same period last year.
The breakdown of half-year revenue by business is as follows:
- Home Building has maintained a steady level of production, posting revenue of €425.5 million, up 10.2% compared to the first half of last year.
- Renovation contributed €77.0 million to group revenue, down 5.1% compared to the previous year. Renovations for the B2B market generated revenue of €50.6 million, compared with €56.9 million for the same period in 2021, due to the group's decision last year to limit the growth of this segment in order to focus on its B2C market.Momentum in the B2C renovations market continued, growing 9.5% and resulting in revenue of €26.4 million.
- Land Development posted a +171.2% increase in revenue to €16.0 million. Real Estate Developmentcontributed €31.2 million to the group's half-year revenue, up 16.9%.
Order intake in line with group forecasts
Home Building Business
After record orders in 2021, the Home Building business is returning to more normal levels of activity, in line with the group's annual objectives.
At June 30th, 2022, the Home Building order book represented revenue of €514.0 million, down 23.1% in number and 10.8% in value. With higher revenue customers, and to preserve its margins, the group has been able to adjust its pricing policy over the last months to face both the increase in construction costs (materials and subcontracting) and the changes in regulatory standards (RE 2020).
The average selling price for the first half of the year rose again to €151,600 excluding VAT, compared with €130,600 excluding VAT for the same period in 2021.
For the B2C renovation business, Renovert and Camif Habitat's order intake remained stable during the first half of the year at €26.5 million. In the coming months, all these brands should benefit from the rollout of an “energy renovation” offer. Illico Travaux performed very well, given the development of the franchise network in recent years. Intermediated order intake was up 30.9% to €40.9 million.
The group is pursuing its efforts to structure the B2B renovation business by using selective criteria for new orders. Sales from B2B renovations amounted to €24.4 million, compared with €50.2 million for the same period in 2021.
Real Estate and Land Development Businesses
At the end of June 2022, the order book (unreserved inventory) for the Land Development business stood at €30.0 million, representing 425 lots.
For the Real Estate business, despite the longer lead times for obtaining building permits across the industry, the backlog at June 30th, 2022 amounted to €84.3 million and the potential inventory at the same date represented revenue to be delivered of €304.4 million, i.e. 1,481 housing units.
2022 outlook consolidated by 2021 record sales for over €1 billion
For 2022, due to the excellent sales performance in 2021 and with 2022 sales so far meeting forecasts, the group's production should once again grow in spite of the increasing construction times.
Although the group has proven its resilience, Hexaom remains cautious about:
- Preserving its margins as the economy continues to suffer from high inflation with, amongst other things, the increasing cost of materials and subcontracting.
- The profitability of its B2B renovation business. The measures set in place to improve this subsidiary's margins have not yet reached their objectives. The business will post a significant loss for the first half-year.
With its proven diversification strategy, recognized leadership in the home building and renovation industry, and its strong financial structure, Hexaom will continue to gain market shares in 2022 and strengthen its position as a major player in the French housing market.
Furthermore, to match its listing compartment with the size of its market capitalization, Hexaom is currently evaluating the possibility of transferring its shares to Euronext Growth Paris.
