Delticom publishes Q3 business development
  • Revenues growth 9M 16: +11 %, Q3 16: +13 %
  • Record temperatures in September delay season start
  • Good winter business start in Q4
  • Full-year guidance unchanged: Revenues € 620-630 million, EBITDA € 16 million

Hanover, November 14, 2016 - Delticom (WKN 514680, ISIN DE0005146807, ticker symbol DEX), Europe's leading online retailer of tyres and accessories as well as an efood specialist, publishes the key points of its business trends in the third quarter 2016 with this interim announcement.

Market environment

September 2016 was a decidedly warm, dry and very sunny start to the autumn (meteorological autumn: September to November). Together with 2006, it was the warmest September to date since geographically comprehensive records began in 1881. Summer returned to the whole of Germany between September 9th and 15th. Warm days with temperatures even above 30 Celsius (°C) were often observed. After a cooler phase, temperatures during the last third of the month climbed again to summer-like temperatures of 25 °C and above in some areas.

Given these conditions, the replacement tyres business in the third quarter in Germany failed to benefit from an early start to the winter season. Many motorists did not become directly aware of the need for new winter tyres until October when sustained cold temperatures set in and road conditions became more difficult. In September 2015, by contrast, ground temperatures had already fallen to persistently below the 7°C level from mid-month in many locations, prompting various motorists to refit winter tyres to their vehicles.

Market experts estimate that 20 % fewer winter tyres were in demand in German tyre retailing in September than in the previous year's month, so that cumulative winter tyre sales were down 5 % during the first nine months of the year. For the summer tyres business, initial preliminary estimates following a weak first half-year with an almost 10 % reduction in shipments also indicate year-on-year lower unit sales to domestic consumers in the third quarter. The decrease in the summer tyre business was mitigated by higher demand for all season tyres. For passenger car summer tyres, including all season tyres, experts estimate shipments in Germany between January and September 5 % lower than in the equivalent 2015 period. It is assumed that the car replacement tyres business in German tyre retailing was down almost 5 % year-on-year in volume terms during the first nine months.
