Paris, May 16, 2017 - Today, Ubisoft released its sales and earnings figures for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "The execution of our strategic plan fully paid off in 2016-17, with further very strong growth for the digital segment - which now accounts for 50% of total sales - and an ever-more recurring profile."

"With 44 million unique registered players, the size of the Tom Clancy community has increased by almost 150% in less than 18 months. This impressive performance for a brand created almost 20 years ago clearly illustrates the strong popularity of Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division. Our Live titles continue to beat records for player engagement and have seen a sharp rise in player recurring investment. Our results for 2016-17 demonstrate the success of our new model, with record high operating income and outperforming the target announced a year ago, and operating margin up for the third consecutive year."

"Over the last three fiscal years, Ubisoft has - with remarkable success - created numerous new brands and rebooted Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon. These successes have strengthened our visibility for the coming two fiscal years, with a line-up of releases principally comprised of established franchises. In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park.
In 2018-19 we intend to pursue our digital transformation and consolidate our new business model, which is much more recurring and more profitable and is now significantly less exposed to new releases. This revision of our assumptions gives greater visibility for meeting our targets."

"Our dynamic trajectory is being led by the growing footprint of video games in the entertainment industry. Ubisoft is playing a leading role in this respect thanks to the creativity of our teams, the power of our owned brands, the digital transformation that has generated direct relationships with our communities, and our numerous growth drivers, particularly in terms of geographic markets. Beyond 2018-19 we will continue to catch up with our competitors in terms of player recurring investment, which represents huge value creation potential for our shareholders."

Sales

Full-year sales for 2016-17 came to €1,459.9 million, up 4.7% (or 4.9% at constant exchange rates) compared with the €1,394.0 million recorded for 2015-16.

Sales in the fourth quarter of 2016-17 totaled €648.6 million versus €624.9 million in the corresponding prior-year period, representing an increase of 3.8% (or 2.9% at constant exchange rates).

Main income statement items

Gross margin rose to 81.4% of sales (from 78.1% in 2015-16) and to €1,189.0 million (versus €1,088.9 million).

Non-IFRS operating income came in at €237.7 million, up 40.7% on the €169.0 million recorded for 2015-16. This increase reflects the following:

  • A €100.1 million rise in gross margin.
  • A slight €21.4 million increase in R&D expenses to €521.7 million (35.7% of sales) compared with €500.3 million (35.9% of sales) in 2015-16.
  • A slight €9.9 million increase in SG&A expenses to €429.5 million (29.4% of sales) from €419.6 million (30.1%) in 2015-16:
  • Variable marketing expenses amounted to €218.5 million (15.0% of sales), virtually unchanged from the 2015-16 figure of €217.3 million (15.6%).
     
  • Structure costs amounted to €211.1 million (14.5% of sales) versus €202.2 million (14.5%).

             
             
Ubisoft ended 2016-17 with non-IFRS net income of €174.3million, representing non-IFRS diluted earnings per share of €1.46, compared with non-IFRS net income of €129.0 million and non-IFRS diluted earnings per share of €1.13 for 2015-16.

IFRS net income came to €107.8 million, representing IFRS diluted earnings per share of €0.92 versus IFRS net income of €93.4 million and IFRS diluted earnings per share of €0.82 in 2015-16.

Main cash flow statement[5] and balance sheet items

Non-IFRS cash flows from operating activities represented a net inflow of €149.1 million compared with a €148.8 million net outflow in 2015-16. This positive swing reflects an improvement in non-IFRS cash flow from operations which amounted to €110.2 million (versus €104.6 million in 2015-16), and a €38.9 million decrease in non-IFRS working capital requirement (against a €253.3 million increase in 2015-16).

At March 31, 2017, Ubisoft had net debt of €80.4 million versus €41.7 million one year earlier. This increase reflects the combined impact of the following:

  • The €149.1 million in cash flows from operating activities
  • A €63.4 million net cash outflow arising on acquisitions and disposals of intangible assets and property, plant and equipment
  • A €105.6 million cash outflow relating to acquisitions (including Ketchapp et Growtopia(TM))
  • A €9.5 million cash inflow on the exercise of stock options
  • A €67.8 million cash outflow due to buybacks
  • The recognition in equity of €39.6 million related to the value of the equity component of the convertible bond issued on September 21, 2016

Outlook

Full-year 2017-18

Ubisoft's initial targets for 2017-18, as announced today, are as follows: sales of around €1,700.0 million and non-IFRS operating income of around €270.0 million.

This growth will be fueled by:

  • A growth of our new releases, with 4 AAA franchises: Assassin's Creed®, Far Cry®, The Crew® and South Park(TM): The Fractured But Whole(TM).
  • Another rise in player recurring investment. The digital segment is expected to contribute over 50% to total sales in 2017-18 and the back-catalog over 40%.

First quarter of 2017-18

The Group expects first-quarter 2017-18 sales to amount to approximately €170.0 million, up 22.0% on first-quarter 2016-17.

Update of 2018-19 targets

The Company has revised its 2018-19 targets, which are now as follows:

  • Sales of around €2,100.0 million, compared with the previous target of €2,200.0 million
     
  • Non-IFRS operating income of €440.0 million, in line with the previous target, with an increase in the non-IFRS operating margin target to 21.0% from 20.0% previously
     
  • Free cash flow of around €300.0 million, in line with the previous target

This performance will be driven by:
             

  • The release of four AAA titles with three established franchises and a new brand (compared with five established franchises previously). The total number of units for these releases is expected to be around 28 million, compared with the 40 million previously announced
     
  • Digital revenue, which is expected to account for more than 55% of total sales (versus around 45% previously) with player recurring investment representing more than 25% (versus around 17% previously)
     
  • Significantly higher Back-catalog compared with previous assumptions, both in absolute value terms and as a percentage of sales

Definitions of Non-IFRS Financial Indicators

Non-IFRS operating income corresponds to operating income less the following items:

  • Stock-based compensation expense arising on free share plans, group savings plans and stock options.
  • Depreciation of acquired intangible assets with indefinite useful lives.
  • Non-operating income and expenses resulting from restructuring operations within the Group.

                         
Non-IFRS operating margin corresponds to the ratio between the Non-IFRS operating income and sales. This ratio reflects the economic performance.

Non-IFRS net income corresponds to net income less the following items:

  • The above-described deductions used to calculate non-IFRS operating income.
  • Income and expenses arising on revaluations, carried out after the measurement period, of the potential variable compensation granted in relation to business combinations.
  • OCEANE bond interest expense recognized in accordance with IAS 39
  • The tax impacts on these adjustments.

Non-IFRS diluted EPS corresponds to Non-IFRS net income divided by the weighted average number of shares after the exercise of dilutive instruments rights.

The adjusted cash flow statement includes:

  • Non-IFRS cash flow from operations which includes:
    • The costs of internal development and licenses development (presented under cash flows from investing activities in the IFRS cash flow statement) as these costs form an integral part of the Group's operations.
    • Current and deferred taxes.
  • Non-IFRS change in working capital requirement which includes movements in deferred taxes, thus cancelling out the deferred tax income or expense presented in Non-IFRS cash flow from operations.
  • Non-IFRS cash flows from operating activities which includes the costs of internal development and licenses development (presented under cash flows from investing activities in the IFRS cash flow statement and included in Non-IFRS cash flow from operations in the adjusted cash flow statement).
  • Non-IFRS cash used by investing activities which excludes the costs of internal development and the licenses development that are presented under Non-IFRS cash flow from operations.

Free cash flow corresponds to cash flows from operating activities after cash inflows/outflows arising on the disposal/acquisition of other intangible assets and property, plant and equipment.

Free cash flow before WCR corresponds to cash flow from operations after cash inflows/outflows arising on the disposal/acquisition of other intangible assets and property, plant and equipment.

Net cash (debt) position corresponds to investments and cash and cash equivalents less financial liabilities excluding derivatives.
