Q1 production in line with full-year targets

In the first quarter of 2024, Hexaom posted revenue of €221.8 million, down 13.2% (like-for-like) compared to the same period last year due to a higher-than-normal basis for comparison.

Per business segment, production for the first three months of 2024 breaks down as follows:

The Home Building business posted revenue of €192.6 million, compared with €223.9 million last year, in line with first-quarter group forecasts. This decline in production – which will gradually worsen throughout the year – stems from the significant drop in sales during the past 18 months in a drastic property market crisis.

The Renovation business posted revenue of €12.8 million.

Revenue from the “intermediated” business, consisting of commissions received via franchisee networks, amounted to €3.0 million. Efforts are ongoing to develop the sales network of the Illico Travaux and Camif Habitat brands. The Rénovert “energy renovation” offering has just been launched, and the first franchisees will be operational by summer 2024.

Production for the “General Contractor” business – resulting from progress on renovation contracts marketed both by Hexaom's home building brands and by the specialised Camif Habitat brand for the Rhone-Alpes and Ile de France regions – amounted to €9.8 million, compared with €10.9 million in the first quarter of 2023. This drop is mainly due to the gradual transfer of Camif Habitat's “General Contractor” business to the franchise network.

Real Estate Development saw Q1 revenue increase 11.4% to €12.7 million, benefiting from postponed transactions that were originally scheduled for the last quarter of 2023.

Land Development posted revenue of €3.6 million, in line with current market conditions and group expectations.

Quarterly order intake reflects a persistently difficult market environment

As expected, the order intake at the end of March 2024 shows that market conditions remain difficult for the sector, even though certain signs point to a slight improvement over the coming months (first fall in interest rates, easing of lending conditions by the banks, stabilisation of prices, etc.).

Home Building

Order intake in the first quarter of 2024 represented revenue of €105.4 million, down 39.7% compared to the same period in 2023, penalised by both a difficult market and an unfavourable base effect. Indeed, 2023 sales began to fall sharply from the second quarter onwards.

The average selling price has stabilised at €169.1k excluding VAT.

Renovation

At 31 March 2024, “intermediated” order intake from the franchise networks totalled €34.8 million, compared with €25.9 million for the same period in 2023, an increase of 34.3%.

General contractor revenue amounted to €6.3 million, compared with €10.6 million last year. This variation is mainly due to the shift of Camif Habitat's business to a franchising model.

Real Estate Development

At the end of March 2024, the real estate development business had a backlog of €125.8 million, and potential inventory for delivery (including projects where a preliminary land deal has been signed) represented revenue of €324.2 million, i.e. 1,484 housing units.

While a slight upturn is taking shape in the real estate development market, Hexaom's strategy remains focused on small, mid-range to high-end offerings mainly in French regions away from Paris, with a secure customer mix (predominantly social housing and institutional investors).

Land Development

At the end of March, the order book (unreserved inventory) for the land development business stood at €12.5 million, representing 133 lots. This level of activity reflects the market environment.

Positive outlook for 2024 operating profitability

For 2024, after taking into account orders at the end of April, Hexaom anticipates a decline in production of around 25 to 30% compared with 2023.

Measures to adjust the cost structure to market conditions, already largely implemented in 2023, are ongoing. Hexaom should maintain a satisfactory operating profitability in 2024 of between 3% and 4% of annual revenue.

With solid foundations and a very healthy financial structure, Hexaom remains confident in its ability to seize opportunities as they arise, and to bounce back as soon as market conditions improve.
