negative impact on BmW Group’s performance

International automobile markets

The worldwide spread of coronavirus has left inter- national automobile markets in an extremely weak overall condition after the first three months of the year. Initially, events were dominated by a slump in registrations in China in February and March. How- ever, all other major automobile markets subsequently reported declines, some of them drastic, especially from March 2020 onwards.

Group Overview

 

Corona pandemic significantly holds down automobile deliveries

In an ongoing challenging political and economic environment, the global spread of coronavirus severely held down the number of vehicles delivered by the BMW Group in the first quarter of 2020. Accordingly, sales figures for the BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brands fell significantly to 477,1111 units during the first three-month period (2019: 600,6141, 2 units; – 20.6 %).

 

A total of 449,687 new credit financing and leasing contracts were signed with retail customers during the three-month period, slightly fewer (– 4.2 %) than one year earlier (2019: 469,624 contracts). The down- turn in new business with retail customers was mainly attributable to lower credit finance volumes (– 7.8 %), particularly in China. On the other hand, however, the number of new lease contracts signed grew slightly by 2.9 %. The leasing business in Germany contributed particularly to this growth in the first quarter of 2020.

 

Group earnings performance

Both the progression of the corona pandemic and the ensuing decisions taken by policymakers are having  a considerable impact on the BMW Group’s business performance. In particular, reduced customer demand in the wake of the pandemic and the associated con- tainment measures as well as the resulting produc- tion interruptions in several countries are having an adverse impact on the Group’s net assets, financial position and results of operations.

 

The gross profit for the three-month period amounted to €3,534 million and was therefore significantly down on the previous year (2019: €4,056 million; –12.9 %). First-quarter revenues increased slightly year-on-year

to € 23,252 million (2019: € 22,462 million; + 3.5 %, adjusted for currency factors: + 2.9 %). While the Financial Services segment reported solid year-on-year revenue growth, mainly driven by higher lease reve- nues, Automotive segment revenues were held down by a slump in demand in China due to the corona pandemic and the closure of dealerships in other key markets. The lower amount of revenue being elimi- nated on consolidation due to a reduction in expected new lease contracts3, related in part to the drop in Automotive segment revenues, contributed to the rise in Group revenues. The elimination had an equal and opposite effect on the cost of sales. At the same time, higher risk provisioning expenses, including those recognised in connection with the assessment of residual value and credit risks due to the corona pan- demic on the one hand and the higher volume-related depreciation of leased vehicles on the other, also had a negative impact on cost of sales. These unfavourable factors were slightly mitigated by the volume-related decrease in Automotive segment manufacturing costs due to lower customer demand triggered by the corona pandemic. Research and development expenses remained at a similar level to the previous year, mainly reflecting the continued enhancement of the Group’s product portfolio and ongoing expenditure for vehicle electrification projects.

 

The net amount of other operating income and expenses improved by €1,351 million year-on-year, practically all of which was attributable to the provi- sion of approximately €1.4 billion recognised in the first quarter of the previous financial year in con- nection with ongoing antitrust proceedings. Further information is available in note 10 to the Group Financial Statements for  the  financial  year  ended 31 December 2019.

 

Group profit before financial result for the three- month period therefore rose sharply to €1,375 million (2019: €589 million).

The  first-quarter financial result  deteriorated by

€750 million to a net negative amount of €577 million. The corona pandemic-related downturn in customer demand and the interruption of production in China during the first quarter caused the earnings of the Chinese joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., Shenyang, to fall to €162 million (2019: €242 million). Furthermore, the Group’s share of losses in the YOUR NOW companies had a negative impact on the result from equity accounted investments. A further factor for the deterioration was that other financial result reported in the first quarter of 2019 had bene- fited from a one-time revaluation gain of €328 million arising on the pooling of mobility services with the Daimler Group. Furthermore, the financial result reported for the three-month period deteriorated by

€223 million due to negative valuation effects arising on interest rate hedges due to lower interest rates     in the USA.

 

Group profit before tax was impacted by the same set of factors and rose accordingly to €798 million  (2019:

€762 million; + 4.7 %) during the period under report.

Financing activities

Despite the current financial market volatility, the BMW Group continued to have excellent access to the world’s capital markets.

 

During the three-month period under report, the

BMW  Group issued bonds for a  total amount of

€3.4 billion, including one euro-benchmark bond and the fourth Panda bond on the Chinese capital market. It also issued ABS transactions in China as well as in the UK and Canada with a total value of €1.5 billion.

 

These financing activities helped mitigate negative liquidity effects arising due to lower delivery volumes caused by the corona pandemic, so that the Group’s liquidity remained at a solid level of €18.8 billion at the  end  of  the  reporting  period (31 December 2019:

€17.4 billion).

Automobile deliveries severely affected by corona crisis

The opening quarter of the year was dominated by the worldwide outbreak of coronavirus. Restrictions on public life in numerous countries resulted in a sig- nificant decline in demand, with just 477,1111 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brand vehicles delivered to

 

customers during the three-month period (2019: 600,614 1, 2 units; – 20.6 %). Worldwide deliveries of BMW brand vehicles totalled 411,809 1 units (2019: 515,297 1, 2 units; – 20.1 %). At 64,449 units,

MINI brand deliveries were also well down  on the previous year (2019: 84,145 2 units; – 23.4 %). Similarly, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars recorded a sig- nificant downturn in deliveries to 853 units (2019: 1,172 2 units; – 27.2 %).

Asia hardest hit

The spread of coronavirus during the first quarter of 2020 had a particularly significant impact on the BMW Group’s business in Asia, above all in China. First-quarter deliveries of the Group’s three brands in Asia fell to 162,940 1 units (2019: 217,415 1, 2 units; – 25.1 %). After a good start in Janu- ary, automobile sales in China fell significantly in February. However, the first signs of recovery were already evident in March. In total, 116,577 1 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles were delivered to customers in China during the first three months of the year (2019: 168,650 1, 2 units; – 30.9 %).

In Europe, after two strong months at the beginning of the year, delivery volumes began declining in March. During the first quarter, the BMW Group delivered a total of 221,024 units (2019: 270,6452 units; –18.3 %) to customers across the region. Germany (66,004 units; 2019: 72,3772 units; – 8.8 %) and the UK (44,474 units;

2019: 62,3732 units; – 28.7 %) were also affected  by the general downward trend in Europe, albeit with significantly different rates of decline.

 

After two months of volume growth for all three BMW Group brands in the Americas region, figures for March were down by around one half compared

to the previous year.  During the first three months  of 2020, the BMW Group delivered a  total  of  82,078 vehicles to customers on the American con- tinent (2019: 99,7092 units; –17.7 %). It was a similar story in the USA, with deliveries of the Group’s three brands dropping to a total of 64,956 units (2019: 78,6522 units; –17.4 %).

 

BMW deliveries well below previous year’s record levels1

At 411,809 units, deliveries of BMW brand vehicles  in the first quarter of 2020 were well down on

the previous year’s record level (2019: 515,2971, 2 units; – 20.1 %). As described above in the section on regions and countries, automobile deliveries began the year strongly, particularly in January. In Febru- ary, however, momentum slowed considerably, most noticeably in China, before proceeding to decline significantly in March against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The BMW models that had come onto the market in mid-March 2019 – the Z4, the 8 Series and the X7 – all sold well initially. Details of delivery volumes by model series are provided below.

Deliveries of electrified vehicles increased

The percentage of the BMW Group’s total deliveries ac- counted for by electrified vehicles rose slightly in the first quarter of 2020. In total, 30,692 electrified vehicles were delivered to customers during the three-month period (2019: 26,9581 units; +13.9 %). The positive development was mainly due to the availability of plug-in hybrid

versions of the BMW 3 Series, the X3 and the X5 since autumn 2019, which significantly broadened the range of electrified vehicles on offer. In addition, the completely new, all-electric MINI Cooper SE2 was launched at the beginning of March 2020. Deliveries of BMW i vehicles were down on the previous year, primarily due to the BMW i8 reaching the end of its life cycle.

Segment revenues held down by corona pandemic First-quarter Automotive segment revenues amounted to €17,989 million, representing a moderate decrease year-on-year (2019: €19,213 million; – 6.4 %, adjusted for currency factors: – 6.9 %). The primary factors influ- encing this development were lower delivery volumes, particularly due to the global outbreak of the corona pandemic and the accompanying drop in demand in China, as well as the closure of dealerships in other key markets. A positive product mix, favourable cur- rency effects and improved selling prices driven by a product portfolio significantly rejuvenated since the same quarter of the previous year partially offset the impact of lower volumes.

 

Segment cost of sales  went  down  by  €422 million to €15,971 million (2019: €16,393 million; – 2.6 %), mainly due to the volume-related decrease in man- ufacturing costs. However, the scale of the decrease was held down by higher manufacturing costs per vehicle due to a higher-value product mix compared with the previous year, unfavourable currency effects and increased raw material prices. Research and development expenses remained at a similarly high level to the previous year, mainly reflecting sustained development work on the Group’s product portfolio and expenditure on vehicle electrification.

Other operating expenses totalling € 276 million

were significantly lower than one year earlier (2019:

€ 1,532 million), mainly due to the provision for ongoing antitrust proceedings recognised in the first quarter of the previous financial year.

 

First-quarter segment EBIT improved to € 229 million (2019: 2019: negative EBIT of € 310), while the EBIT margin came in at 1.3 % (2019: – 1.6 %; + 2.9 percent- age points).

 

The segment’s financial result was significantly down on the previous year. The deterioration was due firstly

to the one-time revaluation effect in the previous

year arising on the pooling of mobility services with the Daimler Group and secondly to the lower result from equity accounted investments in the first quarter of 2020, brought about by the lower earnings of the Chinese joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd., Shenyang, in the wake of the corona pandemic as well as by losses recorded by the YOUR NOW companies.

 

The segment profit before tax for the first quarter of 2020 amounted to € 80 million (2019: loss of

€ 27 million).

Free cash flow generated by the Automotive segment was adversely affected by the corona pandemic in the first quarter. The main negative factor here was the change in cash flows from operating activities,   in particular the year-on-year deterioration in profit before tax from operations (i.e. excluding the provision recognised in the first quarter of 2019 in connection with the ongoing antitrust proceeding which, as a non-cash item, did not have an impact on free cash flow). The higher level of working capital also had a negative impact on cash flow, reflecting the seasonal increase in inventories on the one hand, the scale of which was significantly exacerbated in the first quar- ter of 2020 by the temporary closure of dealerships, as well as the decrease in trade payables due to the interruption of production at several locations from mid-March onwards on the other hand.

 

In the previous financial year, first-quarter cash flows from investing activities were affected in particular by cash outflows in connection with the acquisition of the YOUR NOW companies as well as by higher investments in the production network, including the new manufacturing facility in Mexico, which was opened in 2019.

Negative impact of corona pandemic on Financial Services business in first quarter 2020

Despite the revenue growth achieved during the period under report, driven by the combined effect   of new leasing business and the existing  portfolio, the pre-tax profit recorded by the Financial Services segment was significantly lower than one year earlier. The main reason for the decline in segment profit was the increased risk provisioning expense in connection with the expected consequences of measures being taken to contain the corona pandemic.

 

In terms of credit risk management, appropriate mea- sures were put in place to support dealership and retail customer financing – including moratoriums and temporary increases in dealership credit lines – with a view to mitigating systemic risks that might arise as a consequence of the corona pandemic. Prior to their implementation, the adopted measures were considered in light of current regulatory developments, market requirements and Group liquidity aspects.

 

An additional risk allowance for expected credit losses was recognised on a market-by-market basis, taking account of local conditions, in order to cover the potentially negative impact of the corona pandemic on retail customer and dealership business. In addition to the above-mentioned countermeasures, a qualitative portfolio evaluation was performed and an increased risk allowance recognised for the proportion of the contracts for which credit risk is expected to increase.

 

During the first quarter of the financial year 2020, selling prices of vehicles returned from leases were only affected in isolated cases and to a minor degree by the corona pandemic. With respect to risk provi- sioning expenses, initial measures were undertaken

 

in a few countries where portfolios are exposed to residual value risks. Risk provisions were adjusted on a market-by-market basis, for example to allow for current restrictions that might affect the remarketing process or the amount of expected market value losses. However, the consequences of the pandemic for selling prices of premium segment pre-owned vehicles on international markets cannot be reliably assessed at present.

 

The Financial Services segment monitors and provides for core business risks on an ongoing and comprehen- sive basis. In view of the current volatile developments triggered by the corona pandemic, the risk situation in the Financial Services segment could deteriorate   in subsequent quarters, for instance in the event a significant increase in credit risk. Accordingly, changes in the status of the various risks are being monitored continuously so that corrective measures can be taken promptly as and when the need arises. Based on current assessments, however, the Financial Services segment has recognised appropriate levels of provisions /al- lowances to cover residual value and credit risks.

 

In balance sheet terms, business volumes were lower than at the end  of  2019  due  to  currency  factors on the one hand and lower receivables from sales financing on the other, driven by the lower volume  of BMW Group new vehicles sold.

 

Slight decrease in new business with retail customers

During the three-month period, a total of 449,687 new credit financing and leasing contracts were signed with retail customers, corresponding to a slight year- on-year decrease of 4.2 % (2019: 469,624 contracts).

 

The decline in volume of new business  contracts with retail customers was attributable to a downturn in credit financing (– 7.8 %), particularly in China,

whereas leasing business grew slightly (+ 2.9 %), driven primarily by the higher number of new lease contracts signed in Germany. Overall, leasing accounted for

35.7 % and credit financing for 64.3 % of new business in the period under report.

 

In the pre-owned credit financing and leasing lines  of business, 103,157 new contracts were signed for BMW and MINI brand vehicles between January and March (2019: 95,211 contracts; + 8.3 %).

 

The total volume of all new credit financing and leas- ing contracts concluded with retail customers during the three-month period amounted to €14,075 mil- lion, up slightly (+1.3 %) on the previous year (2019:

€13,898 million). Alongside positive currency effects, the main factor driving the increase was a favourable product mix. Adjusted for currency factors, the total volume of new business remained at a similar level to the previous year (+ 0.3 %).

 

During the first quarter, 57.7 %1 of new BMW Group vehicles were either leased or financed by the Finan- cial Services segment (2019: 50.0 %; + 7.7 percent- age points).

 

At 31 March 2020, the total portfolio of credit financing and leasing contracts with retail customers comprised 5,516,068 contracts, similar to the level reported  at the previous year-end (31 December 2019: 5,486,319 contracts; + 0.5 %). The Europe/Middle East/Africa region recorded a slight year-on-year increase (+ 2.0 %), while the EU Bank2 (+ 0.4 %), Americas (– 0.3 %) and Asia/Pacific (– 0.5 %) regions all hovered around the previous year’s level. The contract portfolio for the China region went down by 1.0 %.

 

Fleet business at previous year’s level

In the fleet management business, the BMW Group – operating under the brand name Alphabet – is one of Europe’s foremost leasing and full-service providers. Alphabet offers leasing and financing arrangements as well as other specific services to commercial customers. A portfolio of 715,109 contracts was in place at 31 March 2020 (31 December 2019: 717,353 contracts; – 0.3 %).

 

Dealership financing moderately down on previous year

In the first quarter, the total volume of dealership financ- ing decreased by 7.7 % year-on-year to €19,582 million (31 December 2019: €21,227 million).

Other Entities Segment and Eliminations

 

Profit before tax recorded for the Other Entities segment and eliminations amounted to €162 million (2019: €75 million). These figures include in particular fair value measurement losses – reported in the line item “Other financial result” – arising on interest rate hedges entered into  with matching  maturities in conjunction with the refinancing of Financial Services operations, which were more  than  offset by the positive impact of reversals relating to the portfolio of leased products and the lower volume   of expected new leasing business.

International automobile markets

Automobile markets will contract significantly in 2020 as a result of the corona pandemic and wide- spread lockdowns. No other  conclusion  is  realistic in the current economic situation. Even based  on the optimistic assumption of a rapid  recovery  and no further waves of the infection, the IMF predicts a negative growth rate of around 3 %. The extent of the contraction is likely to depend to a large extent on  the economic stimulus programmes implemented by the various countries and the reaction of consumers to the remaining containment measures.

Outlook for the BMW Group Assumptions used in the outlook

At the time of publication of the 2019 Annual Report in March 2020, the outlook for the financial year 2020 was based on the assumption that deliveries across  all key markets would return to normal after a few weeks. However, measures to contain the corona pan- demic, such as lockdowns and restrictions on business activities, particularly in Europe and America, have meanwhile been extended and only partially relaxed. Nearly all cross-border travel has come to a halt. The continued restrictions related to the pandemic are dragging down the global economy and clouding macroeconomic prospects for 2020.

 

A swift recovery seems unlikely. In its revised fore- cast, the BMW Group now only expects the business environment to begin stabilising in the  course  of the third quarter. A longer and deeper recession in major markets, a more severe economic slow-down  in China as a result of recessions in other parts of    the world, significant market distortions due to an even stronger competitive environment and possible implications caused by a second wave of infections and associated containment measures  are  not  included in the revised outlook.

 

The overall very unclear situation makes it difficult to provide an accurate forecast and has led to a broad- ening of the applied scenarios. This is  reflected  in the corresponding expansion of the target range for the EBIT margin in the Automotive segment for 2020.

 

Interim Group Management Report

 

Report on Outlook, Risks and Opportunities

Outlook

Overall assessment by Group management

Within a volatile environment, currently overshad- owed by the global spread of coronavirus, business   is expected to develop negatively during the financial year 2020. Despite the expectation that numerous new automobile and motorcycle models as well as individual mobility-related services would normally generate additional momentum, the various burdens on the global economy described above are likely to have a significant offsetting impact. Research and development expenses will remain at a high level to propel forward-looking projects. In light of the nega- tive impact of the worldwide corona crisis, profit before tax during the period covered by the outlook  is likely to decrease significantly.

 

Due to the negative consequences of the spread of  the virus, Automotive segment deliveries to cus- tomers are likely to be significantly lower than in the previous financial year. Influenced by the negative factors described above, the Automotive segment’s EBIT margin is expected to be within a target range  of 0 and 3 % in 2020. Furthermore, the RoCE in this segment is likely to be significantly lower than one year earlier. At the same time, fleet carbon dioxide emissions* are forecast to drop significantly.

 

For the RoE in the Financial Services segment, an even more significant decline in the volume of new business contracts and higher refinancing costs as well as a more volatile risk environment have been

assumed, mainly due to the negative economic out- look. Accordingly, Financial Services segment RoE is now expected to decrease moderately year-on-year.

 

Motorcycles segment deliveries to customers are set to decrease significantly in 2020. The EBIT margin is now expected to be within a range of 3 and 5 % and the RoCE significantly lower than the previous year’s level.

 

These targets are to be achieved with a  workforce size which – based on the new method of calculation described in the BMW Group Annual Report 2019 – will be slightly smaller than one year earlier through a process of natural fluctuation.

 

The prevailing high level of uncertainty – particularly in connection with the further spread of corona- virus, economic and political developments such the negotiations between the EU and the UK on a trade agreement by 31 December 2020, and international trade and customs policies – may cause economic developments in many regions to deviate from recent expected trends and outcomes. These factors would have a further significant impact on the business performance of the BMW Group.

 

Furthermore, actual business performance may differ from current expectations as a result of the risks and opportunities described in the Report on Risks and Opportunities in the Annual Report 2019 (pp. 88).

RISKS AND

OPPORTUNITIES

 

 

As a globally operating enterprise, the BMW Group is exposed to a broad range of risks and opportunities. The Group’s corporate success is based on leveraging perceived opportunities as they present themselves. In order to drive growth, boost profitability, bolster effi- ciency and work in a sustainable way going forward, the BMW Group also needs to take calculated risks.

 

The assessment of the overall risk situation presented in the Group Management Report 2019 has not changed. Towards the end of April 2020, the BMW Group began the process of resuming production at its international production sites on a stage-by-stage basis. The exact dates of the restart will depend on the situation in the various markets and on customer demand. Although some initial positive developments can be observed, there remains a high degree of uncertainty in many markets, for example in connection with changes in opening regulations for retail businesses and mea- sures required to be taken to contain the coronavirus. The risks arising in  conjunction  with  the  outbreak of coronavirus and their potential impact on the BMW Group’s delivery volumes and supply chains, as well as on financial markets, continue to be classified as high and are constantly being factored into the Group’s forecasts. Similarly, the progress of negotia- tions on free trade agreements between the EU and the UK as well as developments in global trade policies will continue to be closely monitored and promptly taken into account in the outlook.

 

Further information on risks and opportunities as well as on the methods employed to manage them is also avail- able in the “Report on Risks and Opportunities”section of the Annual Report 2019. (pp. 90).
