    2015 Financial Results

    Annual Results 2015 – February 17, 2016

    • FY Revenues €26.6bn, up +6.8%, org. -1%, ~flat underlying¹
    • FY Adj. EBITA +5%. Organically, FY margin ~stable, c.+50bps in H2
    • Strong growth in adj. earnings per share (Adj. EPS)², up 6%
    • Another record free cash flow (FCF), reaching €2bn, up 20%
    • Proposed dividend³ +4%, at €2/share & €1.5bn buyback in 2015-2016
    • Successful Invensys integration; Good start of Schneider is On

    Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, commented: “In a challenging environment, we deliver record high revenues and profit, a stable margin in organic terms, and a strong growth in cash flow. All this demonstrates the robustness of our business model based on the largest worldwide network of partners further enhanced by our balanced exposure to both end-markets and geographies. Moreover this illustrates our capability to quickly adapt to a volatile and challenging environment. Additionally the successful Invensys integration shows our capability to drive value creation from acquisitions.

    Our priorities for 2016 are margin improvement by working on our costs, growing our partner’s network through the launch of many new integrated offers, accelerating services and software, and increasing selectivity on projects focusing on our sectors of expertise.

    In this context, we target organic revenue growth to be flat to down low single-digit, impacted by higher selectivity on project activities and a margin improvement of +20bps to +60bps before negative FX impact.”

    1 Adjusted for negative impact from change of fiscal year closing in Invensys and the ramping down of the China nuclear project, the estimated full year impact is about €40m and €66m respectively

    2014 - Financial Results

    Annual Results 2014 – February 19, 2015

    • Solid execution delivered full year targets
    • Q4 revenues up 13%, +2.5% organically
    • Full year revenues up +6.6%, +1.4% organically
    • Gross margin up and Net income +3%, c. +11% at constant FX
    • Invensys integration well on track

    Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, commented: "We achieve our targets while facing a turbulent environment in 2014. Our revenues grow 7%, 1.4 % organically and margin expands by 0.4pt at constant FX, on current scope. While early cycle businesses drive revenues up, IT returns to growth and Infrastructure shows signs of improvement at the end of the year. Our balanced geographic footprint also proves to be a key strength as new economies and mature countries supplement each other's growth over the year.

    Invensys integration is well on track. Invensys revenues are up 2% organically. Adjusted EBITA margin expands by 5.5 pts reaching 14.8% and cash generation is strong. All this contributes to double digit EPS accretion for the Group. Invensys confirms its complementarities and synergies with our Industry business thanks to the integration of automation and power, the development of hybrid solutions, and the construction of a strong industrial software portfolio.

    2014 marks the end of our “Connect” company program which is another step in building a cohesive, resilient and efficient Schneider Electric. We achieve strong service growth and deliver high supply chain efficiency. Additionally, we strengthen our technology portfolio and enhance capabilities in software, targeted segments and key geographies.

    For 2015, we see continued growth in North America, signs of stabilization in Western Europe and a mixed picture in new economies. In this context, the Group targets low single digit organic growth revenues and an adjusted EBITA margin in the range of 14% to 14.5%, assuming no negative currency impact on margin.”

    2013 - Financial Results

    Annual Results 2013 – February 20, 2014

    • Solid results with growth in all key financial metrics
    • Revenue of €23.6 bn, up 0.4% like-for like
    • Adjusted EBITA margin up 0.3 pt on organic basis
    • Net profit up +4% to €1.9 bn
    • Record Free Cash Flow of €2.2 bn, up 5%

    Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, said: “We delivered solid results in a challenging environment in 2013. We grew 3% outside Western Europe, expanded our margin by 0.3 point at constant currencies and scope and achieved record free cash flow. This reflects the strength of our business model and our capability to adapt to a volatile environment.

    We also filled a major technology gap in our portfolio with the acquisition of Invensys, which further enhances our capability to integrate power, automation and software to deliver complete efficiency solutions to our customers. In parallel, the full control of Electroshield – TM Samara reinforces our presence in key end-markets and steps up our footprint in Russia.

    We shall now focus on integration of these businesses, capitalize on our technology innovation in products and solutions and optimize efficiency across the company. We see significant opportunities for growth and improving the return of our investment. 

    Looking into 2014, we see a rather positive economy in North America and China, initial signs of stabilization in Western Europe, while uncertainty remains in several new economies. On this basis, we expect low single-digit organic growth in revenue and 0.4 to 0.8 point improvement in the adjusted EBITA margin, excluding currency impacts, from the 2013 proforma level of ~14.0% including Invensys.”

    Jean-Pascal Tricoire, President and CEO, said: “In 2012, we delivered 7% growth in sales, double-digit
    increase in earnings per share and record free cash flow in mixed markets. This illustrates once again the strength of our business model, the solid execution of the Connect company program, and the disciplined integration of our acquisitions. This strong performance allows us to propose a 10% increase in dividend to €1.87 per share this year. 

    Our effort to improve the solutions performance is paying off and we continue to grow our strong new economies platform. Together with what we have achieved in product and software innovation, tailored supply chain and organization efficiency, we have laid a solid base for our long term growth and profit.
