Q2 2013 turnover: slight growth at constant scope restated
During the second quarter of the 2013 financial year, VM Matériaux recorded turnover of ¤177.2 million, an increase of 0.5% at constant scope restated (-4.1% at same scope). The increase reflects good resilience by the Building distribution activity and a performance by Industrial joinery (+2.8% during the quarter). This progression is the result of decisions taken early this year.
For the first six months of 2013, Group turnover was ¤338.3 million, nearly matching the corresponding 2012 period (-0.3% at constant scope restated and -2.9% at same scope). The Group held up well in a competitive market, with housing construction still weak.
- The Building distribution division contributed a six-month gain of 0.3% at constant scope restated (-3.6% at same scope) thanks to its reorganisation efforts begun in Q1 and market share gains on the civil construction sector.
- The Industrial joinery division had a good six months, with a gradual trend of rising sales driven by PVC joinery products and fasteners, as well as its positioning on the renovation market.
- The Concrete industry division experienced a 3.2% pullback at constant scope due to lower volumes in an extremely competitive market.
Growth and outlook
In June, Frédéric Marmouzet joined VM Matériaux as CEO of the Building distribution division. His chief responsibilities are to identify and take advantage of market opportunities, to continue rollout of the new organisation and to develop new tools to serve the Group's customers.
With a clientele of professionals and do-it-yourself builders, VM Matériaux remains confident in its fundamentals. Its complementary businesses and innovation policy enable it to confirm its positioning as a specialist in constructive solutions, as it helps its customers meet changing construction standards.
