    Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced the company’s 2019 second quarter results. “We are satisfied with the ongoing improvement in the operational profitability and cash generation of our businesses in the second quarter. Sales declined mainly due to economic headwinds in Europe and non-recurring country-specific developments in growth markets,” said CEO Eric Rondolat. “While market conditions remain challenging, the solid momentum in our growth platforms, our relentless focus on operational efficiencies and our strong free cash flow profile position us well for the future.”

     

    Outlook

    We confirm our outlook that in 2019 our growing profit engines (LED, Professional and Home combined) are expected to deliver a comparable sales growth in the range of 2% to 5%. Our cash engine, Lamps, is expected to decline at a slower pace than the market, in the range of -21% to -24% on a comparable basis. For total Signify, we aim to reach an Adjusted EBITA margin in 2019 within the range of 11% to 13% set at the time of the IPO in May 2016. In 2019, we expect free cash flow, excluding the positive impact from IFRS 16, to be above 5% of sales.

    Conference call and audio webcast

    Eric Rondolat (CEO) and Stéphane Rougeot (CFO) will host a conference call for analysts and institutional investors at 9:00 a.m. CET to discuss second quarter and first half 2019 results. A live audio webcast of the conference call will be available via the Investor Relations website.
