Interim report for FLSmidth & Co. for 1 January - 31 March 2018

Company Announcement No. 5-2018, 2 May 2018

Positive trends in mining and aftermarket continue

Solid free cash flow. Significant currency headwinds.

Q1 highlights

  • Highest service order intake since Q4 2012
  • Solid free cash flow
  • First large mining order in three years
  • Significant currency headwinds
  • 2018 guidance maintained
  • New operating model effective 1 July 2018

       

Effective from 1 July 2018, FLSmidth will apply a simplified operating model, realigning the organisation from the current four divisions into two industries, Cement and Mining, and from a country setup into an agile regional structure. This will be combined with a new central digital organisation to further capture growth (press release 25 April 2018).

"The mining industry is recovering, and winning our first large mining order since 2015 is one of several indicators that mining capex is trending positively," said Group CEO Thomas Schulz.

The return on capital employed (ROCE) increased to 10.4% in Q1 2018 from 9.4% in Q1 2017. Net working capital decreased to the lowest level since 2012 and the net working capital ratio declined to 8.9%. Driven by a positive contribution from the change in net working capital, net interest-bearing debt declined to DKK 1.2bn and the financial gearing (NIBD/EBITDA) decreased to 0.7.

FLSmidth saw significant currency headwinds, which impacted both revenue and the order intake by 8% in Q1 2018. Thus, revenue was down 3% in DKK but increased 3% organically. The order intake was down 10% in DKK but only 3% organically from the very strong order intake in Q1 2017, which included three large cement orders.

The total service order intake was the highest since Q4 2012, despite a 9% negative foreign exchange impact year on year.

EBITA decreased 8% due to lower revenue and a slightly lower gross margin. The EBITA margin fell to 8.1% from 8.5%.

Guidance for 2018

The guidance for 2018 is unchanged at revenue of DKK 18-20bn and an EBITA margin of 8-10%. The return on capital employed (ROCE) is expected to be 10-12%.
