  • Net industrial debt(3): ~ Euro 500 million

Maranello (Italy), August 2nd, 2017 – Ferrari N.V. (NYSE/MTA: RACE) (“Ferrari” or the “Company”) today announces its consolidated preliminary results(4) for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

Shipments

For the six months ended Shipments(5) For the three months ended

2,035 1,903 132 7% EMEA 1,001 953 48 5%
1,342 1,297 45 3% Americas 797 774 23 3%

4,335 4,096 239 6% Total Shipments 2,332 2,214 118 5%

 

Shipments totaled 2,332 units in Q2 2017, up 118 units or +5.3% vs. prior year. This achievement was driven by a 36% increase in sales of our 12 cylinder models (V12), while the 8 cylinder models (V8) were substantially in line with prior year. The V12 strong performance was led by the GTC4Lusso and LaFerrari Aperta, partially offset by the F12berlinetta (phasing-out) as well as the F12tdf, that is finishing its limited series run. The 812 Superfast is yet to arrive on the market but already has a waiting list beyond 2018. V8 performance was impacted by the California T, in its 4th year of commercialization, partially offset by the 488 family and the GTC4Lusso T.

EMEA(5) expanded by 5.0%, with France and Italy growing at double-digit pace, while Germany and United Kingdom recorded mid-single-digit growth. Americas(5) increased by 3.0% and Rest of APAC(5) was up 20.5%, with Australia being a strong contributor. China, Hong Kong and Taiwan(5), on a combined basis, posted a 12.5% decrease due to Ferrari’s decision to terminate the distributor in Hong Kong during the fourth quarter of 2016. The new dealership will be fully operational in Q3 2017.

Total net revenues

For the six months ended (Euro million) For the three months ended
June 30, June 30,
2017 2016 Change 2017 2016 Change
1,250 1,070 180 17% Cars and spare parts(6) 669 589 80 14%
204 128 76 60% Engines(7) 101 71 30 42%

1,741 1,486 255 17% Total net revenues 920 811 109 14%

 

Net revenues for Q2 2017 were Euro 920 million, an increase of Euro 109 million or +13.5% (+12.8% at constant currencies) from Q2 2016. Revenues in Cars and spare parts(6) (Euro 669 million) were up 14% vs. prior year, supported by higher volumes and positive mix led by the 488 and the GTC4Lusso families as well as LaFerrari Aperta, along with a greater contribution from our personalization programs, pricing increases and FX. This was partially offset by the end of LaFerrari lifecycle in 2016, as well as the non-registered racing car FXX K and the strictly limited edition F60 America, completing their limited series run in 2016. Engines(7) revenues (Euro 101 million, +42%) showed an increase attributable to strong sales to Maserati, more than offsetting the termination of the rental agreement with a Formula 1 racing team. Sponsorship, commercial and brand(8) revenues (Euro 124 million, +6%) were up mostly due to higher sponsorship revenues, partially offset by lower 2016 championship ranking compared to 2015. Other(9) revenues (Euro 26 million, -20%) down mostly due to the deconsolidation of the European Financial Services business since November 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA(1) and Adjusted EBIT(1)

For the six months ended (Euro million) For the three months ended
June 30, June 30,
2017 2016 Change   2017 2016 Change
512 395 117 30% Adjusted EBITDA(1) 270 217 53 24%
29.4% 26.6% +280bps Adjusted EBITDA margin 29.4% 26.9% +250bps
379 277 102 37% Adjusted EBIT(1) 202 156 46 29%
21.8% 18.7% +310bps Adjusted EBIT margin 21.9% 19.3% +260bps

 

Q2 2017 adjusted EBIT(1) was Euro 202 million, up Euro 46 million (+29%) vs. prior year, as a result of higher volume (Euro 16 million) thanks to the GTC4Lusso and the 488 families, together with positive contribution from our personalization programs. This was partially offset by the F12berlinetta phasing-out and the California T in its 4th year of commercialization. Mix was positively impacted (Euro 23 million) by LaFerrari Aperta, strong V12 performance as well as pricing increases, partially offset by LaFerrari, that completed its lifecycle in 2016, as well as the non-registered racing car FXX K and the strictly limited edition F60 America, completing their limited series run in 2016. Research and development costs and industrial costs grew Euro 17 million mainly due to higher D&A and R&D expenses to support product range and components innovation for hybrid technology, partially offset by efficiencies on direct material. SG&A was slightly higher than prior year (Euro 3 million), impacted by the recently approved Long-Term Incentive plan, higher costs related to new directly operated stores and costs related to the 70th anniversary celebrations, partially offset by the deconsolidation of the European Financial Services business since November 2016. FX, excluding hedges, had a positive impact (Euro 6 million) mainly due to USD, partially offset by GBP. Other decreased (Euro 7 million) due to lower 2016 championship ranking compared to 2015, the termination of the rental agreement with a Formula 1 racing team and the deconsolidation of the European Financial Services business since November 2016, partially offset by positive contribution from Engines to Maserati.

Tax rate reduced to 28.0% in Q2 2017 from 30.7% in Q2 2016, mostly due to the combined effect of the Italian Government’s decision to reduce the nominal tax rate to 24% from 27.5% in 2017, additional deductions related to eligible research and development costs and depreciations of fixed assets in accordance with the Italian tax legislation.

As a result of the items described above, adjusted net profit(1) for the Q2 2017 was Euro 136 million, up Euro 32 million (+30%).

Industrial free cash flow(1) for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was Euro 92 million, driven by strong adjusted EBITDA(1) of Euro 270 million. This was offset by 2016 tax balance and 2017 first tax advance payments, capex of Euro 82 million and Euro 9 million of net change in working capital due to inventory increase driven by the projected volume growth in line with our 2017 outlook. Other was impacted by accruals and reserves related to deferred compensation as well as provisions partially offset by lack of contribution from advances of LaFerrari Aperta.

Net industrial debt(1) at June 30, 2017 decreased to Euro 627 million from Euro 653 million at December 31, 2016 thanks to strong industrial free cash flow(1) generation, notwithstanding the cash distribution of Euro 120 million.

2017 Outlook confirmed

The Group is expecting the following performance in 2017:

  • Shipments: ~ 8,400 including supercars
  • Net revenues: > Euro 3.3 billion
  • Adjusted EBITDA: > Euro 950 million
  • Net industrial debt: ~ Euro 500 million, including a cash distribution to the holders of common shares and excluding potential share repurchases
