Higher operating margin than expected

  • 19 Feb 16

In 2015, Capgemini integrated Igate (1 July 15) which helped the significant increase in the operating margin rate (1.4pts to 10.6% of revenue). Nevertheless, Capgemini on a standalone basis contributed largely to the margin improvement (+0.8pts to 10% of revenue). 2015 figures: Based on revenue of €11,915m (+12.7%, +1% organically), the operating margin surged to €1,262m (+30%) and the margin rate improved to 10.6% of revenue (vs 9.2% of revenue in 2014), above the 10.3% guidance. New orders reached €11.5bn (+5%), o/w €3.7bn in Q4 15 representing a B2B ratio of 1.14. - Organic revenue increased in all geographic areas (North America: +7.8%, France: +1.2%, Rest of Europe: +7.4%, Asia-Pacific/Lagin America: +6.5%) except for Benelux (+0.1%) and the UK/Ireland (-13.9%), which was penalised by a change in the structure of the Aspire contract. The Application Services and Consulting services were fast-growing (respectively +6.3% and +5.8%) while the Local Professional Services were rather flat (+0.3%) and the Other Managed Services plunged (-10.9%) attributable to the UK. - The improvement in the operating margin at the group level (+1.4pts to 10.6% of revenue) was attributable to the North American operations (+2.3pts to 14.9% of revenue including Igate), the UK/Ireland (+2.1pts to 13.4% of revenue) and the rest of Europe (+1pt to 9.6% of revenue). The operating margin rate decreased in France (-0.3pt to 8.1% of revenue) and Asia-Pacific/Latin America (-1.9pts to 4.2% of revenue). The operating profit was up to €1,022m (+20%) after higher restructuring costs (€-81m vs €-68m in 2014), acquisition-related amortisation of intangibles (€-45m vs €-20m in 2014), acquisition and integration costs (€-55m vs €-5m in 2014) and a goodwill impairment related to the Latin American operations. Group net profit reached €1,124m (+94%) after higher net financial expenses (€-118m, +69%) and a one-off non-cash gain of €476m related to the reassessment of deferred tax assets on US tax loss carry-forwards. Capgemini ended the year with net debt of €1,767m, including the debt brought by Igate (vs net cash of debt of €1,218m in 2014). The operating cash flow increased to €1,004m (+23%) and FCF was €825m (vs €673m in 2014). Cash-out flows included principally significant net investment in shares of €3,392m. Capgemini paid $3,961m for the acquisition of Igate. Share buy-backs of €150m are planned in 2016 (subject to approval at the shareholders' meeting) over a multi-year programme of €600m. The objective is to attenuate the dilution related to the employee share programme and incentive instruments.

A more positive picture than appearances

  • 29 Oct 15

Capgemini had a slight increase in organic revenue in Q3 15, in line with the trend seen in H1 15. The interesting achievement was the strong development in Application services (60% of total revenue). In Q3 15, revenue reached €3,036m (+17.2% and +1.5% organically). There were a positive translation currency effect (+5%) and a change in perimeter with the consolidation of Igate on 1 July 2015. Organic revenue growth was only 1.5% (vs +2.8% in Q3 14) due to the drop in revenue of Other Managed services (-13.7% vs +0.6% in Q3 14) which was affected by the change in the structure of the Aspire contract in the UK and the difficult economic environment in Brazil. Local Professional services were weak (+1.4% vs 0% in Q3 14). Conversely, Application services (60% of total revenue) were buoyant (+8.2% vs +5.1% in Q3 14) and Consulting services (4% of total revenue) performed well (+6.7% vs -3% in Q3 14). New orders reached €2,499m (+20% at constant currency and including Igate). The structure of the order intake tends to change with a higher portion of small-sized projects instead of multi-year managed services contracts. On 30 September 2015, there were 178,045 employees. The strong increase in workforce (+24% ytd) was mainly due to the integration of Igate (c.30,000 employees) which has significant 'offshore' staff in India. Capgemini's workforce in global production centres represented 54% of the total (>96,000, o/w 85,000 people in India). According to management, the integration of Igate is on track. In the short term, the priorities of the new group (Capgemini+Igate) are the implementation of a full vertical model in Financial services, capitalisation on the best practices in North America application services and the creation of a new business unit called Business services that will comprise BPO and the Igate ITOPS (a service that integrates technology and process requirements).

Higher operating margin in all the businesses

  • 31 Jul 15

H1 15 earnings: Revenue reached €5,608m (+9.9%, +1.4% organically vs +2.6% in H1 14). Organic growth was driven by the Application services (systems integration, application maintenance) (58% of group revenue, +5.1% vs +2.2% in H1 14) and the Consulting activities to a lesser extent (4% of the total, +4.4% vs -4.7% in H1 14). The Local Professional services had rather flat organic revenue (+0.5% vs +0.6% in H1 14). Organic revenue in the Other Managed services (-6.7% vs +6.5% in H1 14) was penalised by a change in the structure of the Aspire contract in the UK. The North American activities (26% of group revenue, +11.8% vs +6.1% in H1 14) were fast-growing with double-digit organic growth. The operating margin increased to €486m (+21%) corresponding to 8.7% of revenue (+0.8pt). The operating margin rate improved in all the businesses. The operating result was up to €447m (+26%) after higher restructuring costs (€-35m vs €-19m in H1 14) and other operating income of €35m (vs none in H1 14). Group net income was €290m (+21%) after higher net financial expenses (€-41m vs €-34m in H1 14) and income tax rate (31.2%, +2.6pts). The traditionally negative operating cash flow in H1 was reduced (€-40m vs €-98m in H1 14) reflecting a higher operating earnings level. Capex (net of disposals) was €58m (vs €61m in H1 14). The cash-in included the cash received from the capital increase in June 2015 (€563m) to fund part of the acquisition of Igate. Given the dividend paid to shareholders (€198m, +14%) and lower purchase of treasury shares (€22m vs €103m in H1 14), the net cash situation was €1,464m on 30 June 2015 (vs €205m on 30 June 2014). With the completion of the acquisition of Igate on 1 July 2015, Capgemini had net debt of c.€2.5bn.
