Renault's 2013 revenues achieve EUR 40.9 billion; net profit declines to EUR 695 million

 In 2013, Renault increased revenues by 0.5% y/y to EUR 40.93 billion. The automotive division boosted sales by 0.4% y/y to EUR 38.78 billion. Revenues were affected by the fluctuation of Argentina peso, Brazil real, or Russian ruble, but the decline was offset by sales of new models or improvement of a lineup of models, or appropriate control of selling prices, which Renault says contributed to the growth of revenues.
 
 Operating margin increased by 58.8% y/y to EUR 1.24 billion due to increased sales of Dacia models and to cost reduction. The operating margin of the automotive division grew substantially from the previous year, up a 14.5 times to approximately EUR 500 million. Renault says that the cost reduction resulted from its “monozukuri”policies.
 
 In the meantime, net profit declined by 59.4% to EUR 695 million. This substantial decline is caused because the total cost more than doubled from EUR 600 million in 2012 to EUR 1.28 billion including the restructuring cost in France, the cost for withdrawal from Iran, and depreciation cost. The 2013 net income includes the equity method income from Nissan, which increased by 23.5% to EUR 1.5 billion in 2013.

Production Forecast by LMC Automotive: Renault’s production will reach 3.71 million units in 2017

(LMC Automotive、March 2014)

Renault Group forecast  According to LMC Automotive’s forecast, Renault’s global light vehicle production will first decrease by 3.0% to 3.08 million in 2014 as weak demand in core markets continues. The company then will increase each year reaching 3.74 million units by 2017, which is a 17.7% increase compared to 2013.

 For production volume by countries, France will have a production volume of 578,816 units by 2017, an increase of 19.3% compared to 2013. The production of new Renault Trafic will be transferred back to France as will the Renault Captur crossover, receiving strong demand from customers.

 In Spain, the production will increase to 443,861 units by 2017, an increase of 36.7% compared to 2013. “Renault’s new Urban [SUV derived from the next generation Qashqai] will be sourced from Palencia and so by joining the Megane, capacity utilization at Palencia will be looking positive. This new Renault SUV will be sourced from both Spain and Russia and introduced in early 2015.”

 For developing markets, production in Russia will grow by 18.3% to 823,613 units (including Lada vehicles), Brazil by 16.2% to 312,670 units, Korea by 51.6% to 196,593 units, Morocco by 5.6% to 181,700 units and India by 80.0% to 144,727 units, all comparing the production volume in 2013 with 2017.

 Conversely, production in Romania drops by 28.2% to 239,484 units. “A proportion of Sandero sales across Europe is now being sourced from Morocco… [and] greater volumes are sourced from the North African plant.” Also, LMC automotive comments that the Duster will lose some demands as competition in the market segment intensifies; in addition the new generation Logan is expected to not perform as well as its predecessors, judging from the 2013 sales performance.

LMC notes that risks in Russia are increasing, posing a threat to demand there, especially for Lada vehicles.

Renault’s production will reach 3.71 million units in 2017
