A promising acceleration in Q4

  • 02 Mar 17

Luxottica reported a nice acceleration in growth in Q4, mitigating the slowdown experienced in the first nine months. Sales were up 5.2% at CER (+6.3% reported) to €2,142m in Q4. The revamping of directly operated stores is bearing fruit and pushed the retail network to outperform and grow by 8.9% at CER to €1,384m, while wholesale slumped by 0.9%. The company experienced favourable market momentum in Europe and the Americas, although other regions remained depressed. Full-year sales edged up 3.9% at CER (+2.8% reported) to €9,086m boosted by a rise of 6.8% in retail revenue which reported a significant dynamism in almost all regions, except Asia where the momentum is still deteriorating. Sales in Europe soared by 6.9% to €1,700m. In North America, sales were up 4.2% to €5,370m. Revenue in Asia retreated slightly by 1.9% to €1,158m. The Online activity has performed well and expanded by 24% at CER. The operational performance was hit by relevant restructuring costs. The gross margin retreated by 260bp to 65.3%, due to lower gross profit of €5,932m. Operating profit declined by 2.3% to €1,345m, corresponding to an operating margin of 14.8%. However, net profit benefited from non-recurring income and lower cost of debt of up to €850.5m (+5.8%), despite significant restructuring costs. The first weeks of 2017 are sending promising growth signs with a marked recovery in China. The proposed dividend is €0.92 vs. €0.89 in 2015.

The slowdown continues in Q3

  • 25 Oct 16

Luxottica maintained its pace of growth in Q3 and posted a low single-digit rate amid a tough backdrop. Adjusted group sales were up 1.4% at constant rates (+1.2% reported) to €2,225m. Retail sales outperformed with a 4.4% surge to €1,425m, while wholesales slipped 3.6% to reach €800m. E-commerce sales surged 18% in Q3 sustained by an important online expansion. By region, the weak momentum in North America reduced sales slightly to €1,347m in Q3 compared to €1,357m a year earlier. This market remains by far the largest one, contributing 61% to the quarter’s sales. The performance in Latin America was notable as sales edged up 6.8% to €134m. In Europe, the company showed a strong resilience, surging 8.3% at constant FX to reach €386m. In Asia Pacific, underlying revenues slipped 0.2% to reach €283m. Other regions dropped 5%. Until September, wholesales amounted €6,944m, i.e. a slight retreat (-0.1% reported) halted by adverse FX moves (in H1) as sales at constant rates edged up 1.5%. Retail was up 2.8% to reach €4,174m while wholesale slid 0.3% to €2,770m. The growth was underpinned by the acceleration in Latin America (+11%) and the strong momentum maintained in Europe (+5.7%). The resilience to the slumping demand in China stemmed the crash in Asian sales to 0.6%. The major market grew 0.2% to €4,085m, boosted by a favourable retail momentum (+1.5%). Some recovery signs saw the light by early Q4 in North America and Hong Kong.
