Michelin 2016 income up, sales down


CLERMONT-FERRAND, France (March 6, 2017) — Higher volumes and a rebound in demand in China and Europe helped Michelin register growth in operating income for the full year 2016, although sales revenue was off slightly.

Operating income from recurring activities rose 3.7 percent to $2.95 billion, while sales fell 1.4 percent to $22.9 billion, yielding an operating ratio of 12.9 percent, up about three-fourths of a point over 2015. Net income rose 43.1 percent to $1.83 billion.

CEO Jean-Dominique Senard called 2016 a “successful milestone in our strategic roadmap,” and said 2017 was expected to be “another year of growth, in line with the group’s 2020 objectives.”

In 2017, Michelin expects tire markets to track the trends observed in late 2016, in particular with the upturn in mining tire sales. At the same time, Michelin expects rising raw materials prices to impact earnings by nearly $990 million.

In response to the cost pressure, Michelin said it will “agilely manage prices so as to hold unit margins firm in businesses not subject to indexation clauses.”
