Accell Group records steep post lockdown sales rebound and strong cash generation

HEERENVEEN (THE NETHERLANDS), 24 JULY 2020 – Accell Group N.V. recorded a year-on-year sales growth of 53.1% in June, bringing H1 net sales to € 676.9 mio, up 4.0% versus last year, despite the impact of the lockdowns in March and April. H1 EBIT came in at € 45.1 mio (excluding one-offs: € 47.5 mio), trailing H1 2019 levels by 19.0% (excluding one-offs: 14.7%) with added value margin down 359 bps at 27.6%, mainly due to mix effects and higher costs caused by COVID-19 related disruptions in the global supply chain. Working capital improved by 243 bps to 29.7% of net sales vs June-end 2019, primarily due to reduced inventories. Operating cash flow came in at € 129.1 mio as a result of the above and as part of our precautionary cash management measures taken in response to the virus outbreak.
