The market loses patience with Saint-Gobain

March 01, 2024 at 03:37 pm

MarketScreener.com By Kevin Smith


The financial results of the world leader in building materials, published yesterday, are always eagerly awaited by investors, who use it to take the pulse of the economy.

Three years ago, almost to the day, MarketScreener included the Saint-Gobain share in its European portfolio - it had long since left it - on the grounds that the group seemed well placed to absorb a hyper-inflationary context, thanks in particular to a restructuring and upmarket program in construction chemicals that was already bearing fruit.

On a more critical note, however, we emphasized the Group's lack of growth during the previous cycle. The company was emerging from a veritable decade of sluggishness, which had earned it the wrath of the dreaded Elliott activist fund, among other grievances.

Three years on, the results for the fiscal year just ended reveal three things: one, Saint-Gobain has indeed managed to pass on inflation, but without benefiting from it either; two, excluding acquisitions, organic growth continues to lag; three, optimization of the business portfolio continues and is producing fairly good results.

As proof of these elements, a price increase of 4.6%, which in 2023 will not fully offset a 5.5% drop in volumes; consolidated sales down by 6.4%, with a marked decline in Northern Europe but also a good performance in the US markets; and margins and operating profit that are holding up well in this challenging environment.

Not much has changed, then, and the market seems to be getting impatient, since the trend towards compression of Saint-Gobain's valuation multiple is not really reversing - despite a slight upturn of late.

It should be pointed out, however, that the process of moving upmarket is bound to take years, and that at the same time the Group is confirming its trajectory of improving profitability, while financial leverage continues to decline.

The work of the management team that has been at the helm for the past few years is therefore to be commended, without overlooking the difficult underlying business conditions - which the Swiss Sika Group has so far managed to avoid thanks to a remarkably well-managed acquisitions policy.

2024 outlook and strategic priorities



In a geopolitical and macroeconomic environment that remains challenging, Saint-Gobain will continue to demonstrate its resilience and its excellent operating performance, thanks to its focused strategy and its proactive commercial and industrial initiatives.



Saint-Gobain expects some of its markets to remain difficult in 2024, especially in the first half of the year owing to a high comparison basis, with a contrasting situation between Europe and the rest of the world:

· Europe: resilience in renovation; new construction remaining difficult before gradually reaching its low point country by country;

· Americas: construction to hold firm in North America (new build and renovation); recovery expected during the year in Latin America;

· Asia-Pacific: good growth in most countries;

· High Performance Solutions: Construction Chemicals to see dynamic growth; Mobility to hold firm and a contrasting situation on industrial markets in terms of demand.





Against this backdrop, in 2024 the Group will continue to implement the strategic priorities set out in its "Grow & Impact" plan for 2021-2025:



1) Continue our initiatives focused on profitability and free cash flow generation

· Constant focus on the price-cost spread;

· Productivity initiatives and swift adjustments from country to country where necessary;

· Capital expenditure slightly above 4% of sales, with strict allocation to high-growth markets.



2) Outperform our markets by strengthening our profitable growth profile

· Enrich our comprehensive range of integrated, differentiated and innovative solutions offering sustainability and performance for our customers;

· Continue our value-creating targeted acquisitions and divestments dynamic, and benefit from the successful integration of recent acquisitions.



3) Continued focus on our ESG roadmap as leader in sustainable construction

· Promote our positive-impact and low-carbon solutions among our customers;

· Extend the decarbonization of construction to the entire value chain, playing our full role as leader in light and sustainable construction.







Despite a context which remains difficult in certain markets,
in 2024 Saint-Gobain expects a double-digit operating margin
for the fourth consecutive year

Saint-Gobain strengthens its presence in construction chemicals with two acquisitions in flooring

Saint-Gobain today announces two acquisitions on the attractive non-residential flooring market, further strengthening its presence in this construction chemicals segment:

- R.SOL is a French manufacturer of resin-based flooring solutions employing about 30 people. This acquisition will enlarge Saint-Gobain's portfolio thanks to R.SOL's wide range of diversified resins, differentiating technology and large customer base. Closing of the transaction is expected by the end of the first half of 2024 and is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions as well as the consultation procedure with the employee representative bodies.

- Technical Finishes is a leading South African player in resin flooring solutions employing about 90 people. The acquisition will reinforce Saint-Gobain's profitable growth profile in South Africa and elsewhere on the African continent.

These two acquisitions will strengthen the leadership position of Saint-Gobain in flooring solutions, perfectly complementing its existing offering under our Weber brand and creating significant synergies.

Together, they generated a turnover of around EUR20 million in 2023. Both acquisitions will be consolidated within the Southern Europe - Middle East & Africa Region.

These acquisitions are in line with Saint-Gobain's strategic plan, "Grow & Impact" which aims to both strengthen the Group's leadership and accelerate its growth by enriching its range of solutions for light and sustainable construction.

Saint-Gobain enhances its digital solutions portfolio to accelerate its customers' decarbonization

Saint-Gobain has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Glass Service a.s., a leading provider of digital solutions for glass furnaces, including advanced control systems and simulation software, which enables customers to reduce their energy consumption.

Closing of the transaction is subject to antitrust approvals and is expected by the end of the first half of 2024.

It will complement Saint-Gobain's range of digital services offering predictive, diagnostic, and data-driven solutions to improve energy efficiency for its customers and reduce the carbon footprint of their products and processes:

- Saint-Gobain recently invested in 3 start-ups for breakthrough innovation through its venture arm NOVA: Sysdyne Technologies to enhance productivity and traceability for ready-mix concrete production and delivery thanks to a cloud-native software platform, and Plantformance and Newboot to improve manufacturing performance thanks to a comprehensive suite of services and software programs as well as real-time data collection. These partnerships enable Saint-Gobain to integrate cutting-edge technologies, such as IoT (Internet of Things), artificial intelligence (AI), and digital twins which can result in a reduction of up to 10% in a factory's energy consumption.

- Since its acquisition of GCP in October 2022, Saint-Gobain owns and operates VERIFI(R) in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific: a concrete management system which leverages IoT technology to ensure consistent quality and sustainability in ready-mix concrete production and delivery.

In addition, the SOLU+ and CAP RENOV digital tools sold by Saint-Gobain's merchanting businesses in France (Point.P in particular) continue to see growing success with trade professionals and renovation companies with about 90% of worksites eligible for MaPrimeRénov' having used the CAP RENOV advisory, layout and estimation tool in 2023.

These digital solutions contribute to the goals of Saint-Gobain's "Grow & Impact" strategic plan aiming to provide end-to-end solutions to its customers and accelerate the decarbonization of their products and processes.

SAINT-GOBAIN ACHIEVES THE FIRST FLAT GLASS PRODUCTION using MORE THAN 30% HYDROGEN

Saint-Gobain is the first manufacturer in the world to carry out a test production of flat glass using more than 30% hydrogen during Research & Development (R&D) trials at the Herzogenrath site in Germany.

With this world first, Saint-Gobain has proven the technical feasibility of manufacturing flat glass with a significant proportion of hydrogen, which will complement other decarbonized energy sources and will reduce the site's direct CO(2) emissions (scope 1) by up to 70%.

This strengthens Saint-Gobain's position as a world leader in sustainable construction and confirms its leading role in helping to build a carbon neutral economy.

A European R&D program

This technical feat was made possible by an R&D program launched in 2022, drawing on the Group's extensive expertise in combustion, glass quality, ceramic refractories materials and industrial furnace design. The program in question is carried out in collaboration with the independent German laboratory Gas and Heat Institute Essen e.V. (GWI), a specialist in industrial gas technologies, and financially supported by the Land of North Rhine-Westphalia to the amount of 3.64 million euros.

These industrial tests in Herzogenrath have been preceded on a laboratory scale by trials carried out in two research centers in France: Saint-Gobain Research Paris in Aubervilliers and Saint-Gobain Research Provence in Cavaillon.

Analysis of the data from these tests will make it possible to deploy the use of hydrogen in the Group's floats in the decades to come, when low-carbon hydrogen is available in sufficient quantities.

This breakthrough innovation marks a new milestone in Saint-Gobain's roadmap towards carbon neutrality in 2050. It complements R&D initiatives on the electrification of glass melting and notable achievements, such as the world's first zero-carbon production of flat glass at Aniche in May 2022 , thanks to 100% cullet and 100% decarbonized energy (biogas).
