Defence remains an anchor of stability during coronavirus crisis

  • The Group’s half-year sales fall by 7.7% to €2,597 million due to declining automotive markets
  • Coronavirus crisis causes drop in consolidated operating earnings from €163 million to €70 million
  • Defence continues to grow: sales rise by 19% to €1,641 million; operating earnings improved by 75% to €122 million
  • Automotive significantly affected by crisis-induced production decline: sales fall by 34% to €956 million with operating earnings of €-41 million
  • Impairment of €300 million on account of reduced growth forecast in Automotive sector
  • Annual forecast for Defence specified: sales growth of 6% to 7%; aiming for operating earnings at the upper end of the forecast range
  • Forecast for Automotive: target is operating net income of between €-30 million and break-even

Rheinmetall AG in Düsseldorf demonstrated resilience in a challenging economic environment in the first half of the year. The technology group’s Defence sector continued to grow and significantly increased its income. However, this only partially offset the crisis-induced decline in the Automotive sector. Overall, the Rheinmetall Group therefore posted a year-on-year reduction in sales and operating earnings in the first half of 2020.

Armin Papperger, CEO of Rheinmetall AG said: “Our Defence sector, with its strong performance, is Rheinmetall’s anchor of stability during the crisis. In the Automotive sector, we, like the rest of the global automotive industry, were affected by the massive production declines and general market weakness in the second quarter in particular. With strict cost management, however, we were able to significantly limit the effects of the crisis. We will continue doing this. We want to keep growing profitably in the Defence sector in the current fiscal year and are now targeting an operating margin of 10%. The situation in Automotive remains very challenging. However, in the coming months we will do our utmost to get as close as possible to breaking even in terms of operating result and to develop the business positively again in subsequent years.”
