  • Automotive market: organic growth of 14.7%

At the end of December 2021, net sales at constant exchange rates and constant scope of consolidation were up 14.7% (+12.3% on a reported basis) in a market up 2.5%. The cumulative effect of exchange rates at the end of December was unfavorable by €4.6 million, mainly due to the parity (€/$).

In the fourth quarter, sales at constant exchange rates and scope of consolidation were down 16.8% (-13.8% on a reported basis) in a market down 12.8%. The market was penalized on the one hand by semiconductor supply disruptions and on the other hand by an unfavorable basis of comparison, the last quarter of 2020 having been very dynamic in catching up with a very weak second and third quarter of 2020. In addition, the FTT business is significantly underperforming the market due to overexposure to a customer whose sales have been particularly affected by the semiconductor crisis.

Perspectives

In a market context that remains as unstable as ever (variability of demand, shortage of materials and components, soaring purchase prices, logistical difficulties, etc.), DELFINGEN is doing its utmost to adapt the management of its operations and its cost structure and thus strengthen its leadership as a preferred partner of its customers by offering a unique service and quality.

In addition, DELFINGEN is developing its product and service offering to meet the challenges of the automotive industry's transformation towards clean and sustainable mobility.

In this chaotic market situation, DELFINGEN has outperformed its last revenue guidance of €345 million (see press release of November 5, 2021 'Net sales for the 3rd quarter') and therefore expects to achieve an operating margin of around 6% in 2021, compared with the last guidance of 5%.
