    FUCHS strengthens e-mobility business and enters the battery market
              25.05.2022 / 10:01
      The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
   

The FUCHS Group, which operates globally in the lubricants industry, has taken over 28 percent of the shares in E-Lyte Innovations GmbH. This young company develops and produces groundbreaking liquid electrolytes for high-performance batteries in the industrial and automotive sectors. "We are setting foot on new terrain outside the classic applications for lubricants. The world is changing rapidly and we don’t just want to keep pace, we want to actively meet the future: by entering a very exciting, globally fast-growing market with significant business potential," comments Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board, explaining the reasons behind the recent investment.

The Group launched its FUCHS2025 strategy program back in 2019. Over the next few years, this program will help the company take advantage of the opportunities presented by the megatrends of digitalization, sustainability, and e-mobility. The new investment will also feed into this, as it grants FUCHS access to the fast-growing market for electrolytes. This market is set to become increasingly important, particularly in and out of Europe, since
electrolytes represent a key component of the lithium-ion batteries used in countless applications, including e-mobility. FUCHS is investing around EUR 8 million in this new area of activity. The share purchase agreement also opens up the possibility of acquiring further shares on a step-by-step basis over time.

"Although this market is uncharted territory for us, at FUCHS we are experts in developing custom-made solutions for special customer requirements and a very wide range of functional fluid applications worldwide," adds the CEO. One thing the two new partners have in common is the fact that they are not looking to serve the mass market, but rather focus on promising high-performance applications. The investment represents an important step and extends FUCHS' expertise in the field of e-mobility. The Group already extended its portfolio in 2020 with FUCHS BluEV, a dedicated product line for the latest e-mobility applications.

The E-Lyte product technology also focuses on meeting specific requirements and is based on special performance characteristics, such as faster battery charging times. These are not only of vital importance for electric cars, but also hold potential for many other promising areas, such as drones, medical engineering, high and low temperature applications, or the aerospace sector.

 

"There is no longer one universal electrolyte for batteries and the differences between those available are becoming more and more pronounced. The rapidly developing battery technologies for a broad range of applications are causing skyrocketing demand for customized electrolyte formulas and ever larger production volumes. In order to cater for this, we need a local supply chain, not only because the electrolyte doesn't permit long delivery and storage times because of its limited shelf life," says Dr. Ralf Wagner, Managing Partner of E-Lyte Innovations GmbH.

 

In the next step, the required production infrastructure will be established jointly at the FUCHS location in Kaiserslautern, Germany to facilitate industrialization, scaling, and further growth. Funds are in particular being invested in the production facilities and laboratory equipment. Production is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2023.

 

German enterprise Customcells Holding GmbH, a leading international company in the development of special, high-performance lithium-ion battery cells, is the third partner in the joint venture.

(1) By company location

 

"In a continuing difficult market environment FUCHS increased its sales revenues in the first three months by 16% year-on-year to EUR 808 million. Our consistent sales price adjustments over the past few months play a particular role in this regard. Despite unprecedented price increases on the purchasing side, we managed to improve our gross profit slightly compared to the previous year. However, other, often inflation-related increases of costs, such as freight, energy, wages and salaries, could not yet be fully covered. Compared to the previous year, it should be noted that the start of 2021 was exceptionally good, as a result of post-pandemic catch-up effects and tail wind regarding raw material costs

 

The growth of China, which has been a strong driver over the last years, weakened in the first quarter of 2022. The war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia did not yet have a significant impact on our business in the first quarter. As these two entities play a negligible role in the overall results of the group, the direct impact on FUCHS is small. The indirect impact on the global economy cannot be estimated at this stage. At the same time, China's extensive pandemic-related lockdowns are weighing on the local and therefore also on the global economy. In addition, we expect high raw material price increases and cost inflation to continue to weigh on us for the rest of the year. Furthermore, the supply chain problems that have existed for 18 months will be tightened by the geopolitical crises. Particularly, we are concerned about the availability of raw materials. This also affects our customers and impacts their demand for our products. We are very well positioned to meet all these challenges and, based on current knowledge, expect EBIT for the financial year 2022 to be at the same level as the previous year."

 

Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board FUCHS PETROLUB SE

Business Development in the Group
In the first three months of 2022, FUCHS achieved sales revenues of EUR 808 million (697), which were 16% above the same period of the previous year. Growth in all regions was predominantly price-driven, with the North and South America and Asia-Pacific regions also benefiting from positive currency effects.

 

EBIT fell by EUR 8 million or 8% to EUR 93 million compared to the same period last year. It deteriorated in relation to sales from 14.5% to 11.5% due to inflation effects on sales. In absolute terms, EBIT was at the level of the first quarter of the previous peak year 2018. Within the regions, only North and South America slightly improved its EBIT by EUR 1 million.
Profit after tax decreased by 6% to EUR 67 million (71).
Earnings per ordinary share as well as per preference share amounted to EUR 0.48 (0.51).
Free cash flow before acquisitions was EUR 13 million (31). It was burdened by the lower result after taxes and an increase in funds tied up in net working capital due to rising raw material prices.

 

Sales and earnings in the regions
At EUR 481 million (419), sales revenues in the Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) region were 15% higher than in the first three months of 2021. EBIT decreased by 10% to EUR 44 million (49). The decline in results is mainly caused by Germany and Southern Europe.
The Asia-Pacific region increased sales revenues by 11% to EUR 237 million (213). Due to a difficult start to the year in China, EBIT of EUR 29 million (34) was 15% below the very strong quarter of the previous year.
North and South America recorded the highest sales revenues growth of 27% to EUR 141 million (111). The entire region benefited from price increases and positive currency effects. EBIT increased slightly to EUR 17 million (16), due to the positive development in South America.

 

Outlook
FUCHS is currently operating in a volatile environment. Geopolitical tensions, including the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia, heighten the uncertainties. Increasing pandemic-related lockdowns of entire cities in China carry a high-risk potential for the local and therefore also the global economy. Raw material price increases and the general inflation-related rise in costs, e. g. for energy and logistics, continue to affect us in the further course of the year. The global supply chain problems continue, as do supply bottlenecks, putting a strain on us and our customers and thus on production and demand. Assuming no further aggravation of the situation, for the 2022 financial year we expect:

  • Sales revenues between EUR 3.0 - EUR 3.3 billion (unchanged)
  • EBIT at the same level as last year, at the lower end of the range of EUR 360 - EUR 390 million.
  • FVA due to adjusted EBIT forecast below the prior-year level (EUR 205 million)
  • Free cash flow before acquisitions due to sharp increase in raw material costs and disrupted supply chains significantly below the initial forecast of around EUR 220 million
 

Our global track record and solid financial base remain robust, and FUCHS continues to focus on profitable growth and the implementation of FUCHS2025.

MOVING YOUR WORLD
At the end of April, FUCHS launched MOVING YOUR WORLD, a new emotional statement. It is the visible expression of the ongoing FUCHS2025 future strategy and clarifies the unique added value of the Group. It describes as a corporate purpose why FUCHS exists: Keeping the world moving. Stefan Fuchs adds "Keeping the world moving. That is what drives us. Together with our customers, we develop new ways and give impulses so that they can act more efficiently and sustainably. To this end, we not only supply individual lubricants, but also efficient lubricant solutions. We do all this in an unconditionally reliable way. That is what sets us apart. For this, we need a strong brand that communicates and accompanies our FUCHS2025 transformation. MOVING YOUR WORLD is the core of this.

FUCHS honored as the most diverse MDAX company

FUCHS PETROLUB, the world's largest independent lubricant manufacturer, took 3rd place overall in the BCG Gender Diversity Index 2021 and enjoys the honor of being the highest ranked MDAX company. Deutsche Telekom took first place, followed by SAP.

Consultancy firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) cooperated with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in analyzing Germany's 100 largest listed corporate groups for this survey. Multiple components were examined, namely the proportion of women holding Executive Board and Supervisory Board positions, as well as their compensation in comparison with their male colleagues.

"We are delighted to have moved up from 5th place in the previous year to 3rd place in 2021," explains Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board at FUCHS PETROLUB SE. "At FUCHS, we see diversity not only as an economic success factor, but also an important component of our corporate culture. Our aim is to keep improving year after year." This is an extremely important result from Stefan Fuchs' perspective, as it is not based on a submitted application, but rather on a neutral evaluation.

The observation that companies which do well in the BCG Gender Diversity Index often also achieve a high ESG score is also interesting. It suggests to the author that corporate groups which promote gender diversity at the top management level also act more socially, ecologically and sustainably. In fact, the FUCHS Group has now been fully committed to this topic for ten years with its sustainability strategy.

Stefan Fuchs accepted the Diversity Champion Award on behalf of the company on April 27 in Hamburg's HafenCity district as part of the "Top 100 Women Networking Dinners". In the presence of ECB President Christine Lagarde (keynote speaker), this event was used to honor the 100 most influential women in the German economy, the Diversity Champions, as well as the prima inter pares, Martina Merz.

(1) By company location

 

In what was once again a challenging environment, FUCHS generated sales revenues of EUR 2.9 billion in 2021. This meant that we did not only achieve an increase of 21% compared with a pandemic-dominated 2020, we also exceeded the level of the pre-crisis year of 2019 by 12%. We improved our EBIT by EUR 50 million to EUR 363 million. We thus exceeded our original forecast for 2021 and also the result from 2019. Steep increases in raw material prices tied up a lot of funds and thus led to a free cash flow before acquisitions of EUR 90 million.

 

The past year was marked by disruptions affecting our procurement markets. Extreme cold weather in Texas at the beginning of the year and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic upset global supply chains. An unprecedented shortage of raw materials and packaging materials, as well as sharply rising purchase prices, were the consequences, which resulted in new challenges for our team on a daily basis. In addition, a continuing shortage of semiconductors had a negative impact in particular on our automotive customers worldwide. On top of this, towards the end of the year the Omicron variant and quarantine regulations put parts of our workforce out of action. When seen against the backdrop of all these adversities, the gains in sales revenues and earnings achieved are gratifying.

 

Business development in the regions
Despite the challenging environment, FUCHS significantly increased its sales revenues across all regions. The EMEA region saw its sales revenues climb to EUR 1,710 million in the completed financial year, amounting to growth of EUR 264 million or 18% compared to 2020. The region experienced significant increases in raw material prices and
faced a considerable rise in transport and labor costs and fell short of the previous year's results by just EUR 2 million, reaching EBIT of EUR 166 million.

 

The Asia-Pacific region improved its sales revenues year-on-year by EUR 157 million, or 22%, posting EUR 855 million. The main driver here was China, making a major contribution to the increases. In terms of exchange rates, the price increases on the purchasing side were lower than in the other regions. EBIT improved by 22%, or EUR 22 million, rising to EUR 122 million.

 

The North and South American region was particularly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and recorded declines in sales revenues, despite strong external growth. In the reporting year 2021, these declines were offset and sales revenues increased to EUR 471 million, an increase of 22% or EUR 84 million compared to the previous year. Sales revenues were affected by currency translation losses. With a rise of 43% compared to 2020, the increase in earnings to EUR 60 million was particularly pronounced. Also contributing here was the pleasing development of specialty manufacturer Nye, which was acquired in the previous year.

20th consecutive increase in dividend
Again for 2021 FUCHS proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the dividend be increased by 4%, to EUR 1.03 (0.99) per preference share and EUR 1.02 (0.98) per ordinary share.
Strong growth in sales revenues and earnings, despite inflation and supply chain issues, underpin the robustness and success of FUCHS's business model and confirm the policy of a steadily rising and at least stable dividend. For FUCHS, continuity in dividend policy is a key pillar of the company's philosophy of allowing its shareholders to participate in the company's success.

 

Investments reduced as planned
In the first year after the completion of the major investment offensive, in which FUCHS invested close to EUR 600 million from 2016 to 2020, investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets were significantly reduced in 2021. At around EUR 80 million, it was 34% below the previous year (122) and as planned at a comparable level of depreciation and amortization. The largest individual investment of the past financial year was made by the holding, where in Mannheim works on the new company headquarters progressed, paving the way for moving in during the first half of 2022.

 

Forecast 2022 before impact of Russia-Ukraine war: Sales revenues and EBIT with range
The FUCHS Group forms its outlook for 2022 based on the anticipated development of the global economy, the growth of the lubricants market, and the Group's own global and broadly diversified base.
The war in the Ukraine and the sanctions already imposed on Russia, as well as a potentially worsening situation in the supply chains and the raw materials market, had not been factored into the outlook at the beginning of the year.

 

Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board at FUCHS: "We are shocked by the events in Ukraine these days. Our first concern is for the Ukrainian population and in particular our 55 Ukrainian colleagues. We condemn the Russian invasion into the Ukraine. The direct economic impact of the war in the Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia on our Ukrainian and our Russian subsidiary as well as their indirect effects on the rest of the world cannot yet be estimated."

 

Subject to the not yet assessable impact from the war in Ukraine and the sanctions imposed against Russia, the FUCHS Group currently anticipates organic growth in sales revenues of EUR 3.0 billion to EUR 3.3 billion for 2022. This growth is forecasted mainly based on a further rise in business volume, but also taking account of further increases in sales prices. As a result, FUCHS expects an EBIT of between EUR 360 million and EUR 390 million. This will be facilitated through continued rigorous cost management and a sharp limitation on new hires. At the same time, however, we have to bear inflation-related increases in costs, particularly relating to staff and freight, and we face a continuing volatile environment on the raw materials front, particularly in terms of their availability and possible price increases.
Given the expected growth in sales revenues, we also expect more cash tied up in net operating working capital (NOWC) during 2022, but at a significantly lower level than in 2021. Capital expenditure will be at the level of the previous year and are planned to be around EUR 80 million. Capital employed will increase as a result of growth in sales revenues, which, given a weighted average cost of capital that remains unchanged, will result in higher capital costs. With an EBIT forecast between EUR 360 million and EUR 390 million, an FVA at the level of the previous year (205) is expected. The FUCHS Group anticipates a significant increase in free cash flow before acquisitions. Given the forecast result, constant investments and a significantly lower build-up of NOWC compared with the previous year, we are expecting free cash flow before acquisitions of EUR 220 million (90).

 

Further milestones achieved with FUCHS2025
2021 again saw the FUCHS2025 journey continued with a target-based focus. For more than three years now, the Group has been working with the three pillars culture, structure and strategy as part of FUCHS2025, and achieved further important milestones in all three areas in 2021.

 

Regarding culture, numerous initiatives and the latest means of communication have allowed us to continue growing together as a global team despite limited travel possibilities and we have further developed our positive FUCHS culture. Structurally, we have strengthened our automotive aftermarket business, and, with additional business segment managers, further solidified our market segmentation as well as our consistent focus on specific customer groups. On the strategic side, we have in particular looked at how to address the profound disruptive changes that characterize the times we are in and how to capitalize the three megatrends mobility transformation, digitalization and sustainability as an opportunity for our further development.

Focus on social sustainability: FUCHS provides EUR 50,000 in sponsorship for 14 social projects in Mannheim

FUCHS PETROLUB SE, which operates globally in the lubricants industry, will be awarding the FUCHS Sponsorship Award for the 22nd time on November 18, 2021. More than 30 institutions applied for the Sponsorship Award and a total of 14 projects based in the company's home city were awarded a sum of EUR 50,000.

FUCHS considers sustainability to be a core element of good corporate governance. For almost ten years, the company has been committed to harmonizing economic, ecological and social actions with its sustainability strategy.

 

"FUCHS understands social sustainability, which often gets forgotten about in our world, as taking equal responsibility for our employees, their families and society," says CEO Stefan Fuchs, describing one of the company's central goals. "That's why the FUCHS Sponsorship Award has been such an important part of our corporate commitment since 2000, which we want to use to help people help themselves, while at the same time providing a visible platform for people who do voluntary work."

 

FUCHS supports sustainable projects all around the world in regions where the group's 58 companies operate, giving preference to those projects that pursue social goals in addition to certified climate protection. These social goals vary greatly depending on the location. "Whereas in developing or emerging countries, the focus is on profoundly existential issues such as nutrition, health and education, we support very different necessities and very specific needs at our home location in Mannheim with our Sponsorship Award," clarifies Markus Garb, Vice President Sustainability.

 

In the second year of the coronavirus, many of the social projects supported are aimed at children and young people. This takes account of the fact that it is precisely these age groups who suffered greatly from the unusual pandemic circumstances. They were the ones who had to go without their social contacts and normal school and daycare attendance, for example.

 

Other projects under the theme of "Diversity" focus on integration, health and the interaction between generations, for example. "The amount of funding does not represent an assessment of the projects, but is based on how much is needed to implement the respective project," explains Tina Vogel, Head of PR & Marketing.

 

This year, the company once again offered two special prizes among the 14 selected projects, one for a particularly sustainable project and one for a particularly innovative project.

 

The Sustainability Award 2021 goes to THW-Jugend Mannheim and supports the construction of insect hotels and a Leonardo Bridge, where children and young people learn how to use tools and technical equipment. An additional goal is to boost sustainable interaction with nature.

 

The Innovation Award 2021 went to "Das andere SchulZimmer", which prepares young people who have dropped out of the school system and find themselves in difficult life situations for an extra-curricular secondary school diploma and subsequent entry into a profession. The project "Coding for my Future!" is being supported: Many young people are very interested in "media and programming" and they can acquire basic programming skills in parallel to lessons, thus increasing their prospects of a better professional future.

The award ceremony will be held virtually on account of the coronavirus pandemic. The recording of the digital event and further information on the award winners can be found at: http://www.fuchs.com/fuchs-foerderpreis/

Press Release
news-5973 Mon, 15 Nov 2021 10:52:08 +0100 FUCHS Group announces new design for automotive lubricants: better orientation, better handling, gentler use of resources https://www.fuchs.com/group/press/press-releases/company-business-finances/news-detail/view/5973-fuchs-group-announces-new-design-for-automotive-lubricants-better-orientation-better-handling-gentler-use-of-resources/ The FUCHS Group, which operates globally in the lubricants industry, brings new small packs for the automotive sector onto the market, maximizing customer benefits: new labels for better orientation, ergonomic design for better handling, and gentle on resources thanks to the use of recycled material. The new small packs will be implemented gradually in the FUCHS companies from November 15, 2021.

The range of lubricant products in the automotive sector is enormous – and for customers it's getting harder and harder to find what they need. The new small packs for all automotive FUCHS product brands – TITAN, AGRIFARM, MAINTAIN, PLANTO, and SILKOLENE – rise to this challenge: The Group has optimized its small packs globally for the quantities 1, 4, and 5 liters, not just visually but also in terms of handling and environmental friendliness. "The unique new design makes it easier for our customers to choose the right product, improves user-friendliness, and saves on resources," sums up Krisztián Rada, Head of Automotive Aftermarket Division.

Easy to choose
The new clearly structured design of the labels enables customers to identify all the relevant information at a glance. Colors, images, and pictograms help with orientation. For instance, the quality levels of the products are clearly indicated by the color codes gold, silver, and bronze. The most important information the customer needs to know about the lubricant is given in concise and comprehensible way, such as the viscosity of the product and area of application – for cars, trucks, or tractors.

Easy to use
The new ergonomically shaped bottles are easy to open without tools, fit better in the hand, and are easier for the user to handle. For example, the enlarged opening of the bottle and an optimized neck design allow accurate filling with no drops. Two handles make the 4 and 5-liter bottles more comfortable to carry and facilitate filling. What's more, the new tamper-resistant cap ensures that the bottle has not been opened before and that if FUCHS is written on it, there is FUCHS inside it.

Easy on the environment
FUCHS has been pursuing its sustainability strategy for almost ten years now, with the objective of carbon neutrality according to the "avoid – reduce – compensate" principle. As such, all FUCHS lubricants in the Group's plants are produced carbon-neutrally. The bottle material of the new small packs consists of up to 30 percent recycled material (PCR) and is 100-percent recyclable. The improved bottle shape of the bottle also makes it possible to pour out even the smallest remaining volume of fluid, allowing complete emptying of the bottles. "Our new small packs are not just intended to be more user-friendly but also contribute to avoiding waste, enable materials to be recycled, and help to reduce carbon footprints. FUCHS will continue to work toward making our packaging continuously more sustainable in the future, too," says Markus Garb, Vice President Sustainability, stating a further objective of the innovation.

"In a difficult market environment, FUCHS has performed in line with our expectations in terms of sales revenues and earnings (EBIT) in the past three months. Rising raw material prices have been significantly squeezing our margins, but our sales price increases are steadily taking effect. Despite supply bottlenecks and recently reduced economic growth, in the first nine months we significantly improved our earnings not only on the prior year, that was impacted by the pandemic, but also on 2019, with sales revenues of EUR 2,129 million and EBIT of EUR 279 million. The automotive sector in the Asia-Pacific region, especially China, was a major contributor to this performance. Rising raw material prices, the uncertain supply situation for raw materials and packaging materials, and inflation in our selling prices have been tying up net working capital and hence our free cash flow. We are confirming our forecast from July this year and are expecting sales revenues of around EUR 2.8 billion and EBIT between EUR 350 million and EUR 360 million."

 

Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board of FUCHS PETROLUB SE

Business Development in the Group
FUCHS PETROLUB achieved sales of EUR 2,129 million (1,740) in the first nine months of 2021, which was 22% higher than the strongly from the pandemic impacted prior-year period.
All regions improved not only against the prior-year period, but also against the first nine months of the pre-crisis year 2019. In particular, the region Asia-Pacific, which benefitted from a strong demand of the automotive industry, was driver of this development.
At EUR 279 million (203), EBIT was 37% higher than in the previous year. All regions increased significantly in comparison to the prior-year period and also increased by EUR 33 million or 13% in EBIT against the first nine months of 2019.
Earnings after tax rose by 39% to EUR 198 million (142).
Earnings both per ordinary share and per preference share were EUR 1.42 (1.02).
Free cash flow before acquisitions amounted to EUR 44 million (122). Whereas it was supported by higher earnings after tax, increasing raw material prices and the strong demand led to higher tied-up funds in networking capital, which alongside a reduction of tax liabilities had a negative impact.

 

Sales and earnings in the regions
At EUR 1,276 million (1,060), sales in the region Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) were 20% above the from the pandemic impacted first nine months of 2020. Almost all countries contributed to this development with clear double-digit-growth rates. EBIT rose by 28% to EUR 131 million (102).
The region Asia-Pacific again reached the highest growth rate and was due to the strong demand in China able to increase sales by 25% to EUR 637 million (509). EBIT improved by 33% to EUR 93 million (70) compared to the prior-year period.
The region North and South America grew by 22% to EUR 344 million (281) in sales compared to the pandemic impacted prior-year period. Moreover, the region benefitted from external growth due to the acquisition of two special lubricant manufacturers in the prior year, which however was overcompensated by negative currency effects. EBIT with EUR 46 million (29) could be significantly increased - also from recent recovery trends in South America - compared to the prior-year period, which was burdened by the pandemic as well as bad debts.

Outlook
In its latest forecast from early October, the IMF reduced its forecast for global economic growth slightly, by 0.1 percentage points to 5.9%.

 

The FUCHS Group confirms its forecast from July 2021:

  • Sales revenues at the upper end of EUR 2.7 billion to EUR 2.8 billion range
  • EBIT: EUR 350 million to EUR 360 million
  • FVA: around EUR 200 million
  • Free cash flow before acquisitions: around EUR 110 million

FUCHS PETROLUB SE honored with 'Partner Award 2021' by DMG MORI 

FUCHS PETROLUB SE, a global player in the lubricants sector, has been honored by DMG MORI, a leading global manufacturer of machine tools, with the "DMG MORI Partner Award 2021" for outstanding performance and innovation.

 

FUCHS CEO Stefan Fuchs and Stefan Knapp, Chairman of the Management Board of FUCHS SCHMIERSTOFFE GmbH, personally received the award from Dr. Eng. Masahiko Mori, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, and Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT, at the "DMG MORI Partner Summit" on September 21, 2021 in Pfronten. "A good partnership manifests itself in difficult times: particularly in the current extremely difficult material supply situation, trusting and reliable teamwork has become even more important. A good network of strong partners is more important now than ever before," emphasized Christian Thönes.

 

"Our common goal was and is to set standards in the field of lubricants for machine tools with innovative product developments. Ultimately, we all benefit from this endeavor: DMG MORI as a machine tool builder, FUCHS as a lubricant manufacturer, and especially our mutual customers. We are therefore very pleased about this special recognition of our cooperation in partnership," said Stefan Fuchs at the award ceremony.

 

Since 2019, FUCHS has been an official lubricants partner of the partner program DMG MORI Qualified Products (DMQP) and now received the award in this category. With the DMQPs, DMG MORI offers its customers perfectly tailored machine peripheries and innovative technology accessories from a single source. As a certified DMQP partner, FUCHS provides cooling lubricants and lubricants tailored to DMG MORI machines and processes within this context. The technology partnership that unites the two companies began several years ago with projects in China and was gradually extended to further markets. Together, FUCHS and DMG MORI are developing new lubricant solutions and services for machine tool applications to advance the digitalization of production processes and the condition monitoring of machines and systems.

"After a strong start to the year, our business performed well again in the second quarter of 2021. Overall, the Group generated earnings (EBIT) of EUR 191 million on sales revenues of EUR 1,411 million. Sales revenues and earnings were thus not only far higher than in the weak first half of 2020, they also outperformed the first half of 2019. Driven by the automotive industry in China, the region Asia-Pacific again saw the highest growth rates. EMEA and North and South America also improved their performance compared to the first half of 2020, which was burdened by the pandemic.
The supply situation remains strained: The persistent and severe price increases negatively affect our gross margin. First price increases have been implemented, but more will have to follow. At the same time, there is no end in sight to supply bottlenecks for raw materials and packaging materials, which present our employees with new challenges on a daily basis. I am therefore extremely grateful to the FUCHS team, which makes every effort to supply our customers.
Given the positive business performance to date, we are optimistic about the months ahead and are raising our outlook for EBIT in the current financial year to the range from EUR 350 million to EUR 360 million."

 

Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board of FUCHS PETROLUB SE

Business Development in the Group
FUCHS PETROLUB achieved sales of EUR 1,411 million (1,120) in the first half of 2021, which was 26% higher than the strongly from the pandemic impacted prior-year period.
All regions improved not only against the prior-year period, but also against the first half of the pre-crisis year 2019. In particular the region Asia-Pacific, which benefitted from a strong demand of the automotive industry, was driver of this development.

 

At EUR 191 million (112), EBIT was 71% higher than in the previous year. All regions increased significantly in comparison to the prior-year period, which was strongly impacted from the pandemic. Against the first half of 2019, an EBIT increase of EUR 34 million could be achieved.
Earnings after tax rose by 72% to EUR 136 million (79).
Earnings per ordinary share were EUR 0.97 (0.56), earnings per preference share were EUR 0.98 (0.57).
Free cash flow before acquisitions amounted to EUR 12 million (15). Whereas it was supported by higher Earnings after tax, increasing raw material prices and the strong demand led to higher tied-up funds in networking capital, which alongside a reduction of tax liabilities negatively affected the Free cash flow before acquisitions.

 

Sales and earnings in the regions
At EUR 850 million (690), sales in the region Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) were 23% above the from the pandemic impacted first half of 2020. Almost all countries contributed to this development with clear double-digit-growth rates. EBIT rose by 66% to EUR 93 million (56).
The region Asia-Pacific again reached the highest growth rate and was due to the strong demand in China - able to increase sales by 33% to EUR 424 million (320). EBIT improved by 54% to EUR 63 million (41) compared to the prior-year period.
The region North and South America grew by 24% to EUR 224 million (181) compared to the pandemic impacted prior-year period. Moreover, the region benefitted from external growth due to the acquisition of two special lubricant manufacturers in the prior year, which however were overcompensated by negative currency effects. EBIT with EUR 31 million (14) could be more than doubled compared to the prior-year period, which was burdened by the pandemic as well as bad debts.

Outlook
After raising its forecast for global economic growth to 6.0% in April, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has made no further changes in July to its outlook this year.
Given the positive business performance in spite of the challenging market environment, the FUCHS Group specifies or rather raises the outlook for the current year as follows:

  • Sales revenues at the upper end of the EUR 2.7 billion to EUR 2.8 billion range
  • EBIT: EUR 350 million to EUR 360 million (previously: EUR 330 million to EUR 340 million)
  • FVA: around EUR 200 million (previously: around EUR 180 million)
  • Free cash flow before acquisitions: around EUR 110 million (unchanged)
 

Supply chain uncertainties and other possible effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global economy still cannot be reliably estimated.

Press Release

FUCHS extends its carbon neutrality scope

With global operations in the lubricants sector, the FUCHS Group has already been operating on a carbon-neutral basis at all manufacturing subsidiaries since 2020. For 2021, all non-production subsidiaries and all joint ventures will now also be included in FUCHS' carbon neutrality - irrespective of the stake held by FUCHS.

FUCHS is thereby setting another milestone while implementing its sustainability strategy, which it has been pursuing for almost ten years. The key here is the objective of carbon neutrality in line with the principle of "avoid - reduce - compensate". FUCHS has already been completely carbon-neutral gate-to-gate at all manufacturing subsidiaries since the start of 2020. This means that all emissions produced in the context of production and operational activities are neutralized - whether energy and water consumption, waste generated, fleet operations or employee travel and commuting. Compensation is not the only instrument for reducing emissions here. In fact, FUCHS is working continuously on reducing both emissions and resource consumption. For example, FUCHS was able to reduce its energy-related emissions per ton of lubricant produced by 26% between 2010 and 2019.

 

"We consider it extremely important to further improve our corporate carbon footprint and thereby fulfil our responsibility for global climate protection," explains Stefan Fuchs, Chairman of the Executive Board at FUCHS PETROLUB SE. Therefore, with effect from the beginning of 2021, the company has not only been including its manufacturing companies in the calculation and compensation of its carbon footprint, but also the non-producing subsidiaries, as well as all joint ventures.

 

While joint ventures are typically only included in compensation measures at the level of equity share, FUCHS has chosen to adopt a different approach: Irrespectively of the actual stake held in a joint venture, FUCHS includes 100% of its emissions. "By taking this voluntary step, we want to show just how seriously we take our sustainability goals, while also underlining the importance of maximum transparency and credibility of our carbon balancing measures," reaffirms Markus Garb, Vice President Sustainability.

Although FUCHS is working continuously on reducing and, where possible, preventing emissions altogether, some emissions are simply unavoidable. These are then compensated by purchasing certificates for selected climate protection projects. Increased use of renewable energy is a key focus in this regard, helping to reduce the use of fossil fuels. These include projects such as hydropower in India, Argentina, and China, as well as wind power in Indonesia, an efficient gas-fired power plant for grid stabilization, also in India, and advanced cooking stoves produced locally in Zambia. In some cases, this has even allowed a more stable power grid to be established on a renewable basis in the respective regions. When selecting projects, FUCHS focuses on regions in which it has business operations, prioritizing projects that also pursue social objectives beside certified climate protection.

But it does not end here. In fact, FUCHS is planning to extend its carbon neutrality scope even further from 2025 onwards, when it will also include the entire upstream supply chain (cradle-to-gate). In order to achieve this, extensive preparations are needed throughout the entire lubricants sector. This also includes activities with associations supporting the drafting of respective standards. FUCHS is actively contributing to this development.
