Séché Environnement Q3 2021 activity: Contributed revenue +14%

Regulatory News:

Séché (Paris:SCHP) is bringing forward its communication relating to its Q3 revenue in order to respect the equality of information between shareholders and creditors in the context of a potential refinancing in the debt capital markets.

Q3 2021 activity confirms Séché’s growth momentum at work for one year in its main markets and reinforces the Company’s confidence in its 2021 revenue targets.

With contributed revenue1 of €183.4 million for the third quarter of 2021—up 14.1% compared to Q3 2020—Séché demonstrates its ability to benefit in the long-term from a normalized and well-oriented economy, particularly in its industrial markets, in France and in the Group’s main geographies. Spill Tech contributed €13.5 million to Q3 revenue - this sound performance reflects the successful integration of this subsidiary acquired at the beginning of 2021 and the continuation of its growth momentum at the heart of buoyant markets.

At constant scope and exchange rates, the Group’s business grew 5.5% compared to Q3 2020 (and 7.2% compared to the same period in 2019), reflecting the high-level of activity in the recovery and treatment business lines for the last year, in France and in most areas where the Group has an international presence.

In the first 9 months of 2021, contributed revenue amounted to €538.1 million, up 16.9% compared to the first 9 months of 2020. €24.6 million of the increase corresponds to the strong contribution of Spill Tech, a South African subsidiary acquired at the start of the year and included in the consolidation scope from March 1, 2021.

At constant scope and exchange rates, contributed revenue over the first 9 months of 2021 grew by 11.4% (and 13.7% compared to the first 9 months of 2019), evidence of the Group’s ongoing growth phase in its main markets within the recovery and treatment sectors in France and abroad.

Business during Q3 2021 was supported by the Hazardous Waste division benefited from a favorable context in France and around the world, while performance of the Non-Hazardous Waste division was limited by the occasional lower contribution from international business:

  • The Hazardous Waste division posted revenue of €121.4 million—an increase of 21.5% (gross variation) over Q3 2020. The figures include a scope effect of €13.5 million related to the integration of Spill Tech.
    Over the period, at constant scope and exchange rates, the division’s growth reflects:
    • In France (up 4.9% to €78.6 million), the good performance of the markets in connection with the high level of industrial production.
    • Internationally (up 17.5% to €29.4 million), of the dynamism of the treatment and recovery businesses in Europe (Mecomer, UTM).
  • The Non-Hazardous Waste division achieved revenue of €62.0 million, stable compared to Q3 2020 (up 0.8% at constant exchange rates):
    • In France, with contributed revenue of €49.6 million, up 5.2% compared to Q3 2020, the division has fully benefited from positive effects linked to the solid performance of industrial markets and the implementation of the circular economy with strong growth in recovery activities (up 18.0%).
    • Internationally, the decline in the sector (to €12.4 million or -13.7% at constant scope and exchange rates) mainly reflects the occasional lower performance of the Non-Hazardous Waste business in South Africa.

During Q3 2021, organic growth in France and abroad was driven by the recovery and treatment businesses:

  • The treatment business has been buoyed in France by the positive effects of regulations linked to the implementation of the circular economy, particularly within the Non-Hazardous Waste division, and in Europe by solid industrial production.
  • The recovery business benefited from a high level of activity in France both within the Non-Hazardous Waste division (up 16.1% linked to the good performance of energy recovery) and the Hazardous Waste division (up 22.0% in material recovery—chemical purification and solvent regeneration).
  • Service activities are stable, showing a slight decline in France (down 3.3% -spot markets-) while International activities (up 4.4%) benefited from the high level of Interwaste activity in South Africa (up 8.1% at constant exchange rates, at €17.0 million).

Definitions

IFRIC 12 revenue: investments made for disposed assets, billed back to the Licenser and booked as revenue in accordance with IFRIC 12

TGAP: General Tax on Polluting Activities paid by the waste producer and collected on behalf of the State by the treatment operators. This tax is paid to the State with no impact on operating margins.

Its projected change between 2021 and 2025, which is both very significant and very differentiated depending on the business lines and types of processing, will lead to the recognition, in reported revenue, of:

  • Non-economic revenue resulting from a significant increase in the amount of tax collected, particularly within the Non-Haz. Waste division.
  • Different changes between activities, which are not representative of their economic changes, particularly in the treatment business lines (incineration and storage of ultimate waste (see Appendix 2).

This change has no impact on operating margins, particularly EBITDA.

Its restatement in non-contributed revenue is also neutral in terms of operating margins.
