Group Beneteau Cyber Attack

Mar 2, 2021

One week after the cyberattack on Groupe Beneteau on February 19, the joint efforts by its in-house teams and external IT experts make it possible to envisage gradually starting up production activities again at certain plants from Friday February 26.

The Group is continuing with its investigations in order to find solutions to restore its IT systems to a normal and secure way of operating.

In a separate press release, the company reported its 2019-20 16-month revenues

2019-20 revenues: better end to the year than forecast thanks in particular to strong demand for outboard boats in line with current boating trends

Revenues (16 months) €1,344.4m -15.1% based on reported data
Revenues (4 months 2020)* €195.3m -21.2% based on reported data
* from September 1 to December 31, 2020    

In a market context faced with a major shift in demand due to the effects of the health crisis, Groupe Beneteau closed out FY 2019-20 (16-month transition year ended December 31, 2020) with revenues of €1,344.4m, down 15.1% based on reported data (-15% at constant exchange rates) compared with the pro-forma 16-month period from September 1, 2018 to December 31, 2019 (1).

Revenues for the last four months (September-December 2020) came to €195.3m, down 21.2% based on reported data (-19% at constant exchange rates) compared with the last four months of 2019. This contraction, which was less than expected, reflects the weak level of both sales to charter operators and leisure home sales, partially offset by the upturn in the outboard segment.

Further information on this subject will be published on Wednesday March 17 when the Group reports its results for FY 2019-20 (16 months) and its outlook for the financial year from January 1 to December 31, 2021.
