2020 GUIDANCE: IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF LOW SALES GROWTH, WE TARGET ADJUSTED EBITA GROWTH OF BETWEEN 2% AND 5%

 

Rexel’s 2019 performance was fully in line with our guidance, making it the third consecutive year of solid results.  These results demonstrate that the business model changes initiated in 2017, more focused on customers and organic development, have resulted in value creation through continued sales and earnings growth.  Confronted with a more volatile environment in 2019, we took actions to protect our profitability without compromising continued investments in our digital transformation. Investment in digital is showing very promising results both in terms of digital sales and adoption of analytical tools. We are ready for a more challenging macro-environment in 2020 and will further capitalize on self-help measures, leverage strategic initiatives and continue investing in our digital transformation to further improve profitability.”

Patrick Berard, Chief Executive Officer
