FY2019 operational and financial performance

Organic GMV (gross merchandise volume) posted a +9.1%  increase in 2019 of which +6.5% in the 4th quarter. On a yearly basis, the main contributors to GMV growth were: the marketplace (+3.9 pts contribution), B2C services such as travel and energy (+3.4 pts), and Géant showrooms (+2.4 pts). The 4th quarter was marked by a record-breaking Black Friday which brought c. €73m GMV in 1 day (+27% vs 2018) with strong performances of travel and energy offerings. This was partially offset by a no-hit video games market, which significantly impacted Cdiscount’s yearly and quarterly performance (-3.4 pts in the 4th quarter and -1.6 pt over the full year).

Marketplace total GMV share7 37.3% 38.1%
Marketplace GMV share evolution +4.5 pts +3.7 pts
FFM marketplace GMV share +12.6 pts +9.8 pts

The marketplace of products accelerated in 2019 and constitutes one of Cdiscount’s main profitable growth drivers.

The marketplace GMV fulfilled by Cdiscount experienced a very significant +63% growth while its marketplace GMV share grew by +9.8 points compared to the previous year to reach 31%. Fulfillment by Cdiscount is a key factor driving marketplace quality and customer satisfaction and contributes to CDAV expansion by adding express delivery SKUs to the loyalty program.

Net sales 4Q19 FY19
Organic growth +0.1% +3.5%

Net sales amounted to €2.2 billion in 2019, a +3.5% organic growth compared to the same period in 2018, driven by marketplace commissions, fast-growing travel sales and showrooms. In 2019 Cnova accelerated the shift towards a profitable platform model and commission-based revenues. 


Traffic 4Q19 FY19
Mobile traffic growth +9.2% +15.9%
Mobile traffic share +5.2 pts +6.2 pts
Mobile GMV share +6.5 pts +5.5 pts

Traffic at Cdiscount totaled 1.0 billion visits in 2019. Mobile traffic grew by +16%, representing 71% share of total traffic (+6.2 points) and 49.5% of GMV (+5.5 points).

CDAV subscriber base growth9 +10%
CDAV GMV share +0.7 pts +1.7 pts

Cdiscount à Volonté (“CDAV”)’s subscriber base grew by +10% and reached 35.8% of GMV in 2019. Its more than 2 million subscriber base now has access to more than 1.2 million express delivery eligible SKUs, four times more compared to last year.

Gross profit was €390 million in 2019, with an associated gross margin of 17.8%, a +2.3 points improvement compared to 2018. It benefited from the increased marketplace GMV share and associated commissions, continued growth in monetization revenues as well as improvement of the core business profitability.

SG&A costs amounted to €378 million in 2019 and accounted for 17.2% of net sales, increasing by +1.5 point. Fulfillment costs, at 7.5% of net sales (-0.2 pt), decreased as a percentage of net sales still benefiting from the first semester logistics productivity improvements with optimized processes, the rolling-out of 3D packing machines and innovative Skypod Exotec robots. Marketing costs rose to 3.7% of net sales (+0.9 pt) to support both unaided brand awareness (+7 pts over the year10) and Cdiscount’s #2 traffic market positioning (20 million average UMV over the year, +26% growth on mobile11), with increased efforts focused on offline media. Technology & Content costs were at 4.2% of net sales (+0.7 pt) driven by the investments supporting the development of the marketplace, services and new monetization initiatives. Development of new businesses also affected General & Administrative expenses, mostly offset by discipline on structure costs (1.8% of net sales, +0.2 pt).

As a result, EBITDA reached €79.0 million in 2019, a significant +€30.8m improvement compared to 201812. EBITDA benefited from the strong marketplace growth and a solid expansion of monetization revenues, along with continued improvements of the core business profitability.

Operating EBIT increased by €17.2m compared to 2018 and turned positive, to €11.3m.

Net financial expense, mainly related to installment payment solutions offered to customers, amounted to €(56.6) million13, increasing by less than 5%, mostly driven by business growth. As percentage of GMV, those expenses decreased from 1.4% to 1.3% in 2019.

Underlying net loss from continuing operations improved by +€10.7m. The reported variation of €(27.3)m to finish at €(65.4) million (with an adjusted EPS of €(0.11)) was impacted by a positive 2018 one-off tax effect of €38m related to the spinoff of Cdiscount’s logistics activities into a separate subsidiary.

Free cash flow from continuing operating activities14 amounted to +€109 million in the last twelve months, relying on strong fundamentals:

  • Operating profitability increased at a fast pace with a doubling EBITDA at €79m (+€31m) ;
  • Limited other cash operating expenses & taxes of €(13)m ;
  • Positive change in working capital of +€71m, notably driven by inventory optimization and more efficient cash management on receivables.

Capital expenditures amounted to €(74)m and remained stable compared to 2018, slightly decreasing as a percentage of GMV to 1.9% in 2019. It supported the implementation of the strategic shift towards the platform model and monetization initiatives. As a result, free cash flow before interest expenses reached a positive +€35 million during the same period.

Taking into consideration net financial expenses and discontinued operations, change in net financial debt15 amounted to €(23)m during the same period.

2nd half 2019 operational and financial performance

GMV had an organic growth of +7.6% versus 2018 2nd semester,  to total of €2.1 billion.

Net sales amounted to €1.2 billion in the 2nd semester, a +1.9% organic growth.

Gross profit was €215 million in 2H19 with a gross margin of 18.0%, an increase of +1.9 points.

Commitment to responsible logistics innovation

  • Agrikolis, Cdiscount’s rural farming pickup points exclusive partnership, extended its network by 28 farms compared to the previous quarter to reach 83, with more scheduled to roll-out in 2020.

  1. IFRS 16, which replaces IAS 17 and the related interpretations from January 1st, 2019, eliminates the distinction between operating leases and finance leases: it requires recognition of an asset (the right to use the leased item) and a financial liability representative of discounted future rentals for virtually all lease contracts. Operating lease expense is replaced with depreciation expense related to the right of use and interest expense related to the lease liability. Previously, the Group recognized mainly operating lease expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease and recognized assets and liabilities only to the extent that there was a timing difference between actual lease payments and the expense recognized. The Group decided to adopt the full retrospective approach as a transition method on January 1, 2019 and IFRS 16 has been applied retrospectively for each period presented. Detailed impacts of IFRS 16 application are included in Note 1 of the Unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
  2. SG&A: selling, general and administrative expenses.
  3. Operating EBIT: operating profit/(loss) before other expenses (strategic and restructuring expenses, litigation expenses and impairment and disposal of assets expenses).
  4. Adjusted EPS: net profit/(loss) attributable to equity holders of Cnova before other expenses and the related tax impacts, divided by the weighted average number of outstanding ordinary shares of Cnova during the applicable period.

1 The audit procedures by the statutory auditors are underway. 2018 financial figures were adjusted for IFRS 16 which replaces IAS 17 and the related interpretations from January 1st, 2019, eliminates the distinction between operating leases and finance leases: it requires recognition of an asset (the right to use the leased item) and a financial liability representative of discounted future rentals for virtually all lease contracts. Operating lease expense is replaced with depreciation expense related to the right of use and interest expense related to the lease liability. Previously, the Group recognized mainly operating lease expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease and recognized assets and liabilities only to the extent that there was a timing difference between actual lease payments and the expense recognized. The Group decided to adopt the full retrospective approach as a transition method on January 1, 2019 and IFRS 16 has been applied retrospectively for each period presented.
2 Organic growth: figures include showroom sales and services but exclude (i) technical goods and home category sales made in Casino Group’s
hypermarkets and supermarkets (total exclusion impact of improving by +3.1 pts GMV growth) (ii) 1001Pneus for the first 9 months of 2019 (-1.0 pt)
3 Marketplace GMV shares have been adjusted to take into account coupons and warranties and exclude CDAV subscription fees. 2018 GMV share has therefore been adjusted by +0.1pt for comparison purposes.
4 EBITDA: operating profit/(loss) from ordinary activities (EBIT) adjusted for operating depreciation & amortization and share based payment expenses.
5 Calculated as EBITDA - other cash operating expenses (taxes and exceptional expenses) - change in working capital - net capex - €27.0m of repayment and interest on lease liabilities (IFRS 16)
6 Calculated as current financial debt for €308.1m - cash & cash equivalent for €78.3m - current accounts with other related parties for €8.3m
