Retail sales still in trouble
17 Mar 17
Excluding fuel, Sainsbury’s Q4 retail sales were down on a lfl basis vs. a 0.1% uptick over the Q3. Following this disappointing quarter, FY 2016/17 retail revenues declined by 0.6% on a lfl basis. Including fuel, this came in at 0.2%. Argos’s sales delivered strong 4.3% lfl growth. Together, Sainsbury’s and Argos’s lfl sales were by up 0.3%. Sainsbury continues to lag behind Morrisons, the latter’s sales impressed with 2.5% lfl growth over the last quarter and 1.7% over the whole year. Regarding the outlook, management remains cautious about the highly competitive market and the cost price pressure impact.
Argos and broader non-food offer to defend market share
28 Sep 16
Q2 total sales fell by 0.4% and by 1.1% on a lfl basis. The retail business (excluding Argos) generated almost flat sales compared to Q2 15 but was still experiencing a negative trend on a lfl basis. The good news came from Argos’s recovering business, where revenues impressed with 2.8% growth in H1 following a promising Q2. Sainsbury strengthened its network by opening nine new convenience stores and one supermarket. Sales of groceries online showed an 8% increase (in line with last quarter’s) despite the decrease in both customer orders and basket size. The stock lost 3.27% this morning.
More convincing on its home turf
19 Oct 16
Q3 16 sales including VAT came in at €21,781m, leading the total sales from the beginning of the year to €62.33bn. Q3 revenues progressed by 3.2% on a lfl basis driven by accelerated growth on its home turf (1.2%) and resilient business in Brazil (12.4%). In France, the supermarkets and convenience stores are the main growth drivers. In China, struggling operations witnessed a continuous fall in sales of 7.8% on a lfl basis. Carrefour faces also a difficult time in Poland where sales were slightly down.
Lower than expected margin
24 Oct 16
Jeronimo Martins released strong Q3 sales growth leading to a 5.5% rise over the last nine months. Total sales reached €10,738m and EBITDA stood at €626,9m, i.e. an EBITDA margin at 5.8%, flat compared to 2015. The 9M net result came in at €501.6m, including gains from the Monterroio disposal for €224m. Adjusted net profit amounted to €266m, 5.6% yoy, boosted by a lower cost of debt. Biedronka remains the main driver for both the group’s top-line and profitability which offset a slight decrease in the Polish business margin (10bp). The underperformance of Ara and Hebe is more pronounced this year due to Ara’s network expansion (expected to be above 2015’s level). Despite the substantial capex, JM continues to enjoy a solid balance sheet with a lower debt burden (reaching €326m vs. €658m in 2015).
On the right track
05 Oct 16
THe Q2 figures witnessed a third consecutive lfl positive growth leading to a H1 16 sales improvement of 1.0% on a lfl basis. H1 sales stood at £24.4bn (£27,338m including fuel) following a promising Q2 (0.9% in the UK and 2.1% for international markets). Tesco’s sales have benefited from the increase in both volume and transactions in all markets. All formats – including the largest and the Extra formats – saw an improving trend in lfl sales performance throughout the half. H1 operating profit came in at £596m, i.e. a 2.2% operating margin and management expects £1.2bn for the whole year. This positive trend in the margin will continue according to management and reach 3.5-4.0% by 2019/20. Net debt decreased to £4,352m but total indebtedness surged by £3,400m with a ballooning pension deficit due to low UK bond yields, in the aftermath of Brexit.
Sales slowdown in France and currency gains in Brazil
13 Oct 16
Q3 sales progressed by 6.7% yoy to €10,425m, mainly driven by the LatAm retail business accounting for 37.14% of group sales (vs. 35.1% in Q2 16 and 30.0% in Q3 15). Casino derives 45.7% of its sales from its domestic market where growth slowed due to an underperforming non-food business hit by unfavourable weather conditions and the decline in tourist activity in Paris. The transfer of stores to franchisees and the closure of loss-making ones have remarkedly pulled down Leader Price, Franprix and Convenience’s total sales. Casino’s e-commerce business was hammered by Cnova Brazil (negative sales momentum for non-food products) while Cdiscount France is delivering strong results (+5.6% net sales growth).
