    • “Connect” 2021-2023: accelerate transformation, reshaping the Group around customers’ needs and expectations, with 4 enabling pillars: fleet / network / IT / organization

H1 2020: KEY FINANCIALS1

  • Revenue: on a proforma basis2, -43% to €815m (-38% variation on a reported basis) with Q2 2020 down -69%, reflecting the full impact of the lockdowns for Cars and Low-Cost Business Units
  • Corporate EBITDA (IFRS 16): -€209m in H1 2020 vs €82m in H1 2019
  • Group Net Income of -€286m
  • Corporate Operating Cash Flow at -€296m
  • Corporate Net Debt at €1,251m as at June 30th, 2020

H2 2020 OUTLOOK

  • A cautious view on Q3 2020, with revenue limited to Leisure domestic markets
  • Positive, low Corporate EBITDA in H2 2020
  • Intensification of cost saving efforts, to achieve circa €890m by year-end 2020, above initial €850m planned, i.e. a circa 30% reduction versus pre Covid-19 scenario

The Covid-19 crisis has strongly hit the Travel & Leisure market environment during the first semester of 2020 and is anticipated to continue to impact Group’s revenues in the months to come. All the assumptions, based on the information currently available, that support our expectations may vary in the coming months with a sensitive scale that could negatively affect the group. In this context of strong uncertainties, the Company’s current capital structure weighs on its ability to ensure a proper path to recovery. The Company is therefore evaluating its short and long-term alternatives to address its capital structure and liquidity constraints, with a view to providing sufficient financial resources to adapt the Group to the new environment. In the meantime, the Company remains fully focused on strict cost and cash management. In that current context, we entertain contacts, with no certainties about the different associated options.

Caroline Parot, CEO of Europcar Mobility Group, declared:

“Like all players of the Travel & Leisure industry, Europcar Mobility Group was severely hit by the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, with H1 2020 results reflecting the impact of lockdown and confinement measures on our activity level, which reached an all-time low in April and May.

With “Reboot & Connect”, we open a new chapter in the history of the Group’s development: “Reboot” has already allowed us to adapt to a new business environment, as local economies are progressively restarting, thanks to strong cost-savings and cash preservation measures, as well as the launch of tactical services and offers. “Connect”, based on the crisis aftermath, will help us accelerate our transformation and reshape our Group around customers’ needs and expectations.”

COVID-19 OUTBREAK, A SYSTEMIC SHOCK: TRAVEL & LEISURE INDUSTRY SEVERELY HIT IN Q2 2020

The Covid-19 outbreak has created a systemic shock on all fronts, with an unprecedented impact on the Travel & Leisure industry.

April recorded as the lowest month ever in the sector, due to lockdowns imposed across the world. May started to recover extremely slowly given limited movements in most countries and June has shown the same pattern as May, with progressive borders re-opening and still very limited international traffic.

The stiff drop in the number of travellers, tourists inbound in particular, had thus major and severe consequences on the Car rental industry in Q2 2020 and thereafter. Individuals and professionals are changing behaviours with a growing need for domestic services and an increased awareness of environmental and social responsibility.

July is the first month showing signs of activity restart, yet slow and progressive.

In this context, Europcar Mobility Group has launched “Reboot & Connect”, an adaptation and transformation plan with both short-term (2020) and mid-term (2021-2023) horizons (Cf Reboot and Connect section, page 6).

2020 OUTLOOK

In the light of Q2 2020, the Group:

  • Is taking a cautious view on Q3 2020, with revenue mostly limited to Leisure domestic markets
  • Expects positive, low Corporate EBITDA in H2 2020
  • Will intensify its cost saving efforts, to achieve circa €890m by year-end 2020, above initial €850m planned, i.e. a circa -30% cost base reduction on pre Covid-19 scenario

PRESERVE CASH AND SECURE LIQUIDITY

In the current exceptional crisis context, the Group has implemented a large cost reduction plan in order to preserve cash and secure liquidity.

Preserve cash

The Group is monitoring strictly all expenses, limiting them to its essential needs for 2020:

  • Capital expenditure: in the range of €30-35m versus €75m in 2019, limited to essential IT projects designed to the Commercial website infrastructure and some specific Group’s projects;
  • Non-recurring items: to be spent according to the pace of the cost adaptation plan (increased level vs prior announcement in Q1 2020)
  • Strict management of non-fleet working capital with a strong focus on collection and implementation of all measures posted by the States to postpone or spread tax or social charges payments;
  • Cancellation of the dividend initially proposed (€13m), as communicated on March 23rd
  • Voluntary reduction of the Management Board base compensation (-25%3) and the Group’s top managers4

__________________________

3 From April 1 to December 31, 2020
4 A 10% to 25% reduction for a minimum of 3 months

Secure liquidity

In parallel, the Group has completed a financing scheme, for a total of €341m, aiming at securing its liquidity to face the COVID-19 crisis and meeting anticipated fleet and corporate financing needs to swiftly restart operations.

  • A €220m term loan, signed with the Group’s main French and international banks, benefiting from a 90% guarantee from the French State via Bpifrance (“Prêt Garanti par l’Etat”).
    1. This facility will have an initial maturity of 1 year, with an up to 5-year extension option decided by the company (up to May 2026), subject to customary mandatory repayment provisions. Differed amortization for 1 year with a contemplated progressive amortization thereafter.
    2. Condition: no dividend payments in 2020 and 2021 and subject to a x3 net corporate leverage thereafter.
  • New financing facilities for the Group’s Spanish subsidiaries (Europcar Spain and Goldcar Spain), totalling €101m, benefiting from a 70% guarantee from the Spanish State. These new facilities will have a 3-year maturity and proceeds are assigned to fund both fleet & corporate needs.
  • A €20m Incremental RCF tranche (to increase the facility from €650m to €670m) - provided by French banks which have obtained a guarantee from Eurazeo through a sub-risk participation.

The Group remains in negotiation in other corporate countries on potential State Guarantee loans to reinforce its liquidity.

“REBOOT & CONNECT”: AN ADAPTATION AND TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM, WITH SHORT-TERM (2020) AND MID-TERM (2021-2023) HORIZONS

The Travel & Leisure industry will gradually recover, initially from domestic markets and then international markets, but it will take time: duration of restrictions remains determinant in the recovery while safety concerns lead to new customers’ behaviours and needs. The European Travel Commission forecast European inbound travel should recover its 2019 levels by 2023.

In response to this challenging and evolving environment, the Group has reacted swiftly with the implementation of a two-phase program, run by dedicated teams and empowered by the Management Board, so as to restart the business in 2020 (Reboot) and, from 2021 to 2023 (Connect), rethink it alongside the whole organization.

REBOOT > RESTARTING THE BUSINESS IN 2020

Leveraging Group’s assets (domestic network, fleet based on buy-back programs, strong know-how of Group’s teams), the Reboot action plan is twofold, targeting both revenue generation and cost reduction / cash preservation, with tactical plays by market, priority given to quick and high return actions and a strong prioritization on resources allocation.

Revenue generation

General objective is to adapt products and services to new customers’ needs, focusing on domestic demand, in order to seize sales opportunities and generate revenue. In that perspective, the Group launched in its different markets tactical offers including more flexibility (cancellation policies, last minute booking…), promoted longer rental duration, increased the digitalization of the customer journey (deskless, contactless), developed partnerships to improve customer experience, …

In addition to these tactical offers, mostly B2C, the Group also adapted its solutions for B2B customers, accelerating mid-term offers, leveraging its V&T platforms, and promoting fleet services.

All of this while keeping safety of all employees and customers as a key priority. For customers, the Group ensures stringent cleaning standards of vehicles between each rental, with systematic use of disinfection agents, and a “zero contact” process between customers and employees. Protocols have been developed in partnership with Bureau Veritas.

Cost reduction and cash preservation plan

Europcar Mobility Group launched as early as March a vigorous cost reduction plan with the objective to reduce both variable and fixed costs. The Group has intensified its cost savings efforts, to achieve c.€890m by year-end 2020, above initial €850m planned, representing a c.30% cost base reduction on pre Covid-19 scenario. Cost savings split into 65% for variable costs and 35% for semi-fixed and fixed costs.

In parallel, all measures have been taken to preserve cash: e.g. strict control of Capex investments (limited to essential IT projects), close monitoring of cash collection and rigorous management of payables, proposed dividend cancellation to further protect liquidity, voluntary reduction of the Management Board and the Group’s top managers base compensation.

Part of this vigorous cost reduction and cash preservation plan, the Group also secured €341m additional new financing facilities of which €321m guaranteed by the French & Spanish states (3 May 2020 announcement).

CONNECT > PROFOUNDLY RESHAPING THE GROUP WITH A VISION FOR 2021-2023

“Connect” has been designed to reshape the Group, around customers’ new needs and expectations: reinforced digital habits, new safety and contactless standards, need for flexible services and new travel patterns.

This will result in an acceleration of Group’s transformation plan, relying on:

- Group’s purpose - “Offering attractive alternatives to vehicle ownership, in a responsible and sustainable way”

- A reshaped network model and footprint, to gain productivity and increase interplay with local eco-systems

- A new technology platform, to gain agility and digitize customer experience at scale.

The Group has identified four enabling pillars:

  • Fleet (e.g: simplification of the fleet mix and categories, 100 % connected fleet in 2023, 100 % direct access to cars in airports in 2023…)
  • Network (e.g: new organization based on use cases operating models: Airports, Hubs in cities, regions, allowing
  • Technology (e.g: one common customer database, extension of direct access to car, connected fleet platform…)
  • Organization, Talents & Culture (e.g: renewed set up for Group’s Executive Committee, simplification of the organisation / centralization while delayering, strong rationalization of HQs framework…)

As a matter of simplification and close “connection” to the customers’ needs and expectations, the Group’s new organization will be structured around 3 business lines, addressing mobility use cases: Leisure, Professional and Proximity.

  • Leisure: Planned, occasional mobility / Driven by price / Low stickiness, high churn.
  • Professional: Planned, contracted mobility / Price and reliability driven / Long cycles, high stickiness.
  • Proximity: On demand, pay per use mobility / Accessibility and flexibility driven / High frequency, mid stickiness

PROFIT & LOSS IN THE FIRST HALF 2020

The loss in earnings in H1 2020 reflects the full impact of the Covid-19 outbreak that materialized in Q2 2020.

The Group generated a €370m cost base reduction in H1 2020, as part of the vigorous cost adaptation plan launched to mitigate the impact of the crisis, reducing both variable and fixed costs.

The following analysis of the Profit & Loss is at constant perimeter and exchange rates, with Fox consolidated in the Low-Cost BU and franchisees in Finland and Norway in the Cars BU and Vans & Trucks.

1. Revenue in Q2 2020 and H1 2020

Revenue in Q2 2020

On a reported basis, total revenue decreased by -66% to €258m in Q2 2020.

At constant perimeter and exchange rates (i.e. proforma basis), revenue was down -69%, splitting into -74% in April, -69% in May and -63% in June, with rental days down 62% and a utilization rate that halved to 40.8% compared to the same period last year.

In Q2 2020, Cars and Low Cost were the most severely impacted BUs (Business Units) due to their exposure to the Leisure market and for the Low Cost in particular, to airports and international travel tourism (inbound tourism): revenue were down -71% to €158m and -86% to €23m respectively for the 2 BUs. As borders were closed in April and since then have only progressively re-opened, business in the quarter was limited to domestic markets. Fox Rent A Car, which serves value-for-money customers only at US airports, recorded a -66% decline of its revenue.

The BU Vans & Trucks registered a better performance - revenue down -25% to €67m - driven by large Corporates and SMEs as well as demand for home delivery services. This validates the Group’s successful strategy implemented in recent years to address more Corporates with an enlarged range of flexible services.

Urban Mobility, a complement solution to public transportation and micro mobility, recorded a -37% drop of its revenue to €7m. Yet this performance hides disparities as the BU recorded revenue growth of +18% in June for Car sharing, its main business, following 2 months of activities shutdown. This performance was driven by longer duration and increased pricing, reflecting the appetite from customers for this urban flexible service solution.

Revenue in H1 2020

On a reported basis, total revenue decreased by -38% to €815m in H1 2020 and -43% at constant perimeter and exchange rates (i.e. proforma basis) with rental days down -38.5%.

The Group recorded a -10% decline in proforma revenue in Q1 2020 and -69% in Q2 2020. While all segments were severely impacted by the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Group recorded a better resilience in domestic markets and Vans & Trucks.

MAVC in Q2 2020 and H1 2020

Margin after variable costs fell to -€2m in Q2 2020 from €323m in Q2 2019, as a direct consequence of the lockdowns and confinement.

The Group has promptly reacted to the crisis by adjusting its fleet to the reduced demand thanks to its flexible model of buy-back programs and long-term relationships with OEMs. Yet the adjustment takes few weeks to materialize. De-fleeting was also constrained by logistics as lockdowns prevent from returning physically vehicles to car manufacturers.

The Group reduced drastically its fleet by -37% YoY at the end of June 2020 to 225,000 vehicles. Hence, fleet holding costs decreased by -26% to €149m in Q2 2020. The other operating variable costs - fleet operating, rental and revenue related costs & variable costs - decreased much faster as they are more dependent on revenue and fleet that is actually used: -60% to €111m. Overall, total fleet costs and other operating variable costs were down 45%.

Margin after variable costs fell to €158m in H1 2020 from €519m in H1 2019, as a direct consequence of the lockdowns and confinement.

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA in Q2 2020 and H1 2020

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA came at -€209m in H1 2020 (€82m in H1 2019), including a loss of -€144m in Q2 2020 compared to €96m in Q2 2019.

The vigorous cost adaptation plan generated €370m cost savings in H1 2020. Overall, it accounts for 42% of the objective planned for the full year:

  • A €280m cost reduction from all the measures and initiatives launched to reduce the fleet
  • A ~€90m reduction in semi-fixed and fixed costs through network and HQs: 1) Network: 80% of employees were under partial unemployment in all countries and up to 88% of stations were closed or with limited hours, depending on countries; 2) HQ costs: negotiation with headquarters landlords, minimum IT investment and first benefits from the HQ 2020 program. The Group also used partial unemployment in all countries and Top managers cut their base compensation.

3. From Corporate EBITDA to Group net income

Financial results: net financing costs not related to the fleet decreased to -€57m in H1 2020 from -€74m in H1 2019, thanks to the 2019 Corporate bond refinancing.

Non-recurring expenses amounted to -€20m in H1 2020, a reduction from -€26m in H1 2019 as the Group has put on hold its programs since the Covid-19 pandemic to preserve cash. They mainly relate to the HQ 2020 program.

Net income: the Group posted a net loss of -€286m in H1 2020 compared to -€69m in the same period last year.
