The Hornbach Group (Hornbach Holding AG & Co. KGaA Group) maintained its profitable growth course in the first half of 2021/22 (March 1 to August 31, 2021) and gained additional market share in the countries where it operates. Consolidated sales in the first six months grew by 5.1 % to EUR 3,292.4m (2020/21: EUR 3,132.2m). Thanks to this pleasing sales performance and to earnings growth in the second quarter, the Hornbach Group's adjusted consolidated operating earnings (adjusted EBIT) exceeded the previous year's record figure in the first half of the year. Based on this strong first-half performance, full-year sales and adjusted EBIT are now expected to reach over the mid point of the forecast range.

"Our half-year results clearly show that consumers are still very keen on making their homes attractive and safe. Customer demand for construction and DIY products remained high in the summer months, although the weather was very unsettled and consumers began to travel much more again. We increased our sales by a further 5.1 % in the first half of 2021/22 and our adjusted EBIT beat the previous year's record figure. That all underlines the performance capacity of our interconnected retail (ICR) approach", commented Albrecht Hornbach, CEO of Hornbach Management AG. "Thanks to ICR, Hornbach significantly outperformed the sector average in Germany and other major country markets, particularly during the difficult period of the pandemic in the first half of the calendar year, and gained further market share

New DIY stores and garden centers were opened in the second quarter in Trollhättan (Sweden) and Cluj (Romania). On a like-for-like basis and net of currency items, the DIY stores and garden centers generated sales growth of 3.4 % in the first six months. The online DIY business (interconnected retail; ICR) boosted its sales by 48.4 % to EUR 593m in the first half of the financial year and thus accounted for a 19.2 % share of the subgroup's sales (2020/21: 13.6 %).

Net sales at Hornbach's DIY stores and online shop in Germany rose by 1.5 % to EUR 1,579.7m in the first half of 2021/22 (2020/21: EUR 1,557.0m). Like-for-like sales in Germany increased by 0.7 % over the same period (2020/21: 24.3 %). Net sales in the eight countries outside Germany (other European countries) grew by 8.2 % to EUR 1,505.5m in the first half of 2021/22 (2020/21: EUR 1,391.9m). The international business contributed 48.8 % of the Hornbach Baumarkt AG subgroup's sales (2020/21: 47.2 %). On a like-for-like basis and net of currency items, sales in other European countries grew by 6.4 % (2020/21: 14.4 %).

Operating earnings exceed previous year's record

Thanks to the pleasing sales performance and to earnings growth in the second quarter, the Hornbach Group's key earnings figures for the first half of the year (March 1 to August 31, 2021) surpassed the records set in the previous year's period. EBIT adjusted to exclude non-operating earnings items grew by 3.8 % to EUR 168.1m in the second quarter of 2021/22 (2020/21: EUR 161.9m) and by 0.7 % to EUR 337.2m in the first half of 2021/22 (2020/21: EUR 334.7m). With an adjusted EBIT margin of 10.2 % in the half-year period (2020/21: 10.7 %), profitability remained significantly higher than before the pandemic. Six-month earnings per share rose year-on-year to EUR 11.69 (2020/21: EUR 11.57).

On the level of the Hornbach Baumarkt AG subgroup, the adjusted EBIT of EUR 304.3m almost matched the high previous year's figure (2020/21: EUR 307.0m).
