Daimler AG / Key word(s): Preliminary Results
Preliminary second quarter 2021 results above market expectations despite semiconductor shortage
Stuttgart, Germany - Mercedes-Benz Cars & Vans achieved strong results in the second quarter thanks to convincing products, favorable product mix, pricing and ongoing cost discipline. This was despite negative effects from the very limited availability of semiconductor components. Daimler Trucks & Buses sales increased in almost all regions due to improved market conditions, which translated into higher profitability in the second quarter. In addition, the Daimler Trucks & Buses EBIT benefitted from strong pricing, higher aftersales business and positive, non-recurring valuation effects of around €100 million. EBIT at Daimler Mobility benefitted from low cost of credit risk, a credit provision release of €120 million and improved funding costs.
In addition to the underlying operating performance, a strong cash conversion delivered a reported industrial free cash flow of €2,586 million in the second quarter, totaling an industrial free cash flow of €4,396 million in the first half of 2021.
Daimler Group EBIT, Mercedes-Benz Cars & Vans adjusted EBIT, Daimler Trucks & Buses Return on Sales (RoS) adjusted, Daimler Trucks & Buses adjusted EBIT, Daimler Mobility adjusted EBIT and Daimler's Industrial Free Cash Flow for the second quarter of 2021 are all significantly above market expectations.
The following stated figures for the second quarter 2021 are preliminary and unaudited:
- Industrial Free Cash Flow: €2,586 million (consensus: €1,790 million)
- Net Industrial Liquidity: €20.9 billion (Q1 2021: €20.1 billion)
- Daimler Group EBIT: €5,185 million (consensus: €4,117 million);
- Mercedes-Benz Cars & Vans EBIT: €3,437 million (consensus: €2,923 million);
Return on Sales (RoS) adjusted: 12.8 % (consensus: 11.5 %)
- Daimler Trucks & Buses EBIT: €820 million (consensus: €680 million);
Return on Sales (RoS) adjusted: 8.3 % (consensus: 6.9 %)
- Daimler Mobility EBIT: €924 million (consensus: €653 million);
Return on Equity (RoE) adjusted: 24.0 % (consensus: n.a.)
The preliminary results include the following adjustments affecting EBIT:
Mercedes-Benz Cars & Vans
- Expenses of €107 million for legal proceedings
- Expenses of €59 million for restructuring
Daimler Trucks & Buses
- Expenses of €11 million for restructuring
- Expenses of €6 million for restructuring
The full quarterly results and interim report will be published on July 21st, 2021.
EBIT, adjusted EBIT, Return on Sales (RoS) adjusted, Return on Equity (RoE) adjusted, Industrial Free Cash Flow and Industrial Free Cash Flow adjusted are defined on pp. 43 and 44 of the Daimler Annual Report 2020.
