Virginie Morgon, Chairwoman of the Executive Board, stated:
« Eurazeo has topped the €30 billion mark in assets under management and delivered a historic result. The Group’s model is powerful: with a record net asset value of €117.8, the strong value creation across all asset classes is a testament to the quality of Eurazeo's investment strategies and the mobilization of its teams. The Group’s performance and reputation also led to an excellent year of fundraising with institutional and retail clients. In a difficult and uncertain international environment, Eurazeo's model is resilient. It relies on solid foundations to continue its momentum: choices of highpotential investment sectors, particularly in the digital and environmental transition, an international presence alongside entrepreneurs and investors, further strengthened ESG leadership and expertise nurtured by the recruitment of new talent in all our geographical presence. The 2021 record results and the confidence of the management team and the Supervisory Board in our model lead us to propose a substantially increased dividend distribution to the Shareholders' meeting. »
1. ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT AND DEPLOYMENT
In 2021, Eurazeo Group Assets Under Management (AUM) totaled €31bn, up 42% over 12 months.
Eurazeo manages limited partner (LP) AUM of €21.5bn, up 43% compared to 2020, and assets financed by the Group’s balance sheet (Net Asset Value, NAV) of €9.3bn, up 38% year-on-year (+40% per share, dividend included).
In 2021, Eurazeo raised €5,215m from limited partners, i.e. 80% more than the amount raised in 2020. The Group finalized the fundraising of three flagship programs, all of which surpassed their initial target:
- the third Growth program exceeding €1,600m
- the fourth Secondaries program totaling €1,000m
- the fifth Private Debt program exceeding €2,000m. The timely deployment of capital enabled the launch of a sixth program which already completed its first close at the end of 2021.
Furthermore, the fourth Small-mid buyout program, launched in H1 2021, has already secured over €800m (including €400m from Eurazeo’s balance sheet) and will continue its fundraising in 2022, aiming to reach a target of around €1bn.
A breakdown of fundraising is shown in Appendix 1
Group deployment surged in all asset classes, totaling €6.5bn in 2021 (including a balance sheet share of €2.0bn) compared to €2.8bn in 2020. The Group has set up divisions offering cross-cutting sector expertise in buoyant segments such as healthcare, consumer goods, financial services and tech and digital. These expertises enable the Group to enjoy a very rich dealflow and remain particularly selective in its deployment in a context of high prices.
Completed realizations also rose sharply to €5.1bn (including a balance sheet share of €2.7bn), as the Group continued its ambitious asset divestment program in a buoyant environment. Several new major deals were completed or announced (e.g. Trader Interactive, Grandir, Seqens, Orolia, In’Tech, Adjust, and Planet) with a weighted average cash-on-cash multiple of 2.4x.
A breakdown of deployment and realizations is shown in Appendix 2
2. NET ASSET VALUE (NAV)
As of December 31, 2021, NAV per share totaled €117.8, up +38% compared to December 31, 2020 and +40% including the dividend paid in 2021. All of the Group’s assets are unlisted.
Gross value creation of the portfolio held on the balance sheet totaled €2,618m, up +47% in 2021. All Group division companies increased significantly in value due to their stellar operational performance (see below), the amounts raised from the financing rounds of Growth companies (Payfit, ManoMano, Content Square, Vestiaire Collective, BackMarket, Younited) and realizations completed or announced in excellent conditions. This enabled around €8 per share in additional value to be incorporated into NAV compared to the most recent valuation of these assets as of December 31, 2020.
The asset management activity (+41% in value creation) benefited from the excellent operating performance (sharp increase in AUM, FRE and PRE) and the increase in sector multiples. However, the multiples used by the Group to value this activity remain lower than the current multiples of listed peers.
Limited short-term impact on NAV from recent markets downturn
Since the beginning of 2022, the stock market is significantly down due to the evolution of economic conditions and the impacts of the war in Ukraine.
The Group estimates that the impact on its published NAV is so far limited thanks to 1) cautious hypotheses used to determine this NAV, especially for the most volatile assets and the asset management activity. This prudent valuation partly reflected the market correction; 2) the quality and diversity of its portfolio, and especially the weight of promising sectors which are little impacted, such as healthcare or energetic transition; 3) very limited exposure to Russia and Ukraine; 4) several exits signed totaling nearly €1.0bn.
A sensibility analysis on our NAV, applying spot multiples as of March 8, 2022, would have according to Group management a limited impact of around 6-8%.
3. FINANCIAL RESULTS AND CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Net income attributable to owners of the Company reached an all-time high (€1,576m in 2021, compared to €36m in 2020). The contributions of the asset management activity, investment activity and portfolio companies all rose sharply compared to 2020 and the pre-COVID level, at constant Eurazeo scope.
A. CONTRIBUTION OF THE ASSET MANAGEMENT ACTIVITY
In 2021, the asset management activity doubled its contribution, with a sharp increase in its revenue, recurring income (FRE) and performance fees (PRE).
The development of this strategic business creates numerous synergies within the Group, mainly through risk diversification, the greater investment universe, the increase in the share of recurring foreseeable income, the leverage impact on costs and the appeal for talents.
Management fees increased by +27% to €309m and break down as follows: i) management activities for limited partners up +38% to €224m, driven by successful fundraising in 2020 and 2021; ii) management fees calculated on the balance sheet of €85m, up slightly by +6%, considering the numerous realizations which reduced the fee paying AUM calculation base;
The Group’s operating expenses totaled €215m, up +26%. They comprise all Eurazeo Group recurring costs (excluding Group strategic management costs).
Fee Related Earnings (FRE), which measure the activity’s net recurring income, totaled €93m in 2021, up 30% compared to 2020. This improvement was attributable to the growth in management fees and the controlled increase in costs despite the strengthening of teams in a context of rising AUM and further international expansion.
Performance fees were substantial during the period. They comprise €132m calculated on the balance sheet, mainly relating to the realizations during the year, and a sharp increase in fees from limited partners (€30m compared to €3m in 2020).
B. CONTRIBUTION OF THE INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
Investment activity net income soared to €1,858m in 2021, compared to €197m in 2020.
Revenue from capital gains totaled €2,157m (€634m in 2020). It mainly comprises divestment capital gains (€1,630m) and the change in fair value of the Growth portfolio (€385m).
Asset impairment was very limited (-€18m) and considerably lower than in 2020.
C. CONTRIBUTION OF COMPANIES, NET OF FINANCE COSTS
Strong growth in economic results during 2021
Excluding Travel & Leisure, the portfolio reported solid growth in 2021. Economic revenue at constant Eurazeo scope rose by +21% in 2021, compared to 2020 and pre-COVID 2019. Economic EBITDA increased by +33% compared to 2020 (+41% compared to 2019 at constant Eurazeo scope).
The revenue of companies exposed to the Travel & Leisure segment increased by 13% compared to 2020. The economic EBITDA of these companies rose to €16m (€3m in 2020) and shows encouraging signs of recovery.
Growth portfolio companies benefit from their digital native positioning and reported average revenue growth of 52% in 2021, taking into account a high comparable base (+45% in 2020). These companies are not consolidated and their revenue is therefore not reflected in the Group’s economic revenue.
A breakdown of the portfolio's performance is shown in Appendix 3.
Contribution of consolidated companies up sharply, including compared to 2019
Adjusted1 EBITDA and EBIT of fully consolidated companies totaled €732m and €445m, respectively, in 2021 (growth of +36% and +62%, respectively, compared to 2020).
Finance costs were overall stable (-1% to €301m) despite new deployment and completed buildups.
The contribution of portfolio companies, net of finance costs, amounted to €186m in 2021, up significantly compared to 2020 (-€42m) and up +8% compared to 2019 at constant Eurazeo scope. Excluding the Travel & Leisure segment, this represented a 100% increase.
D. NON-RECURRING ITEMS AND DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION
Non-recurring items, which mainly relate to the portfolio companies, totaled -€122m in 2021, a sharp decrease compared to 2020 (-€170m).
4. BALANCE SHEET AND DIVIDEND POLICY
A. EURAZEO BALANCE SHEET
Eurazeo’s cash and cash equivalents stood at €550m as of December 31, 2021, compared with €287m as of December 31, 2020. The main changes compared to December 31, 2020 primarily involved deployment and redeployment totaling €2.0bn, total or partial realizations for €2.7bn, share buybacks of €24m and the paid dividend for €115m. The Group has no structural debt at Eurazeo SE level.
The Group has an undrawn confirmed revolving credit facility of €1.5bn.
At the end of December 2021, the Group held 2.5 million treasury shares, i.e. 3.1% of total outstanding shares (79,224,529 shares).
At the same date, the Group had €4.7bn in dry powder (undrawn commitments from limited partners).
B. DIVIDEND POLICY
The Eurazeo Executive Board proposes an increase of 16.7% in ordinary dividend payment to €1.75, and a special dividend of €1.25, totaling to €3 per share with respect to the 2021 financial year. This substantial increase is supported by the growth in recurring revenue from the Asset Management Activity, the Group's financial robustness and the excellent results in 2021.
5. ESG COMMITMENT
As an ESG (environmental, social and governance) pioneer for nearly 20 years, Eurazeo has again sought to boost value creation in the ESG sector with the 2020 launch of its “O+” ESG strategy.
The Group’s ESG commitment is recognized by non-financial rating agencies with, for example, an improvement in the Sustainalytics rating to “Low Risk”, ranking the Group in the top 3% of the “Asset Management & Custody Services” category.
Committed to accelerating the emergence of a low carbon and more inclusive economy, Eurazeo has incorporated ESG criteria into each of its investment strategies, as illustrated by the Article 8 or 9 classification under the new European Disclosure regulation (SFDR) for 83% of its rolledout or raised funds.
Eurazeo continued to strengthen its thematic funds, with the objective of pursuing sustainable development as defined in Article 9 of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088, with :
- ESMI (Eurazeo Sustainable Maritime Infrastructure) which backs innovation, energy transition and maritime sector decarbonization projects;
- Eurazeo Transition Infrastructure Fund, which invests in sustainable infrastructures supporting the energy and digital transition in Europe;
- Nov Santé, a fund worth over €400m created at the initiative of a group of major institutional investors, invests in the healthcare sector (research, production and services) as part of the French “Recovery” plan.
The Group is the first Private Equity management company to submit a decarbonization trajectory calculated using the SBTi methodology (Science Based Target Initiative). This SBTi trajectory was approved in early 2022.
With respect to inclusion, women accounted for 50% of hirings in the past 12 months, raising the company’s gender diversity rate to 44%. Finally, in addition to the company’s standard employee share ownership plan, a capital increase reserved for Group employees carried out in the spring 2021 proved highly successful, with over 90% of employees subscribing, and boosted the sharing of value creation within the Group.
Furthermore, executives signed a shareholders’ agreement, which any of the Group's employee can join. This agreement seeks to coordinate voting intentions prior to shareholders’ meetings. Group executives and employees already hold around 1.9% of Eurazeo’s share capital.
Despite the current international tensions and market volatility, trends remain structurally buoyant for the Group, with investors continuing to boost their allocation to private equity markets.
Exposure to the war in Ukraine
The direct exposure of the Group's portfolio to Ukraine and Russia is very limited, either in terms of revenue or production chain.
Eurazeo is carefully monitoring the indirect effects of the war in Ukraine, particularly the increase in raw materials and energy prices, as well as induced general inflation.
Expected fundraising in 2022
The Group has reached a new fundraising milestone with €5.2bn raised in 2021. Considering the number and relevance of funds in the market in 2022, Eurazeo is confident this momentum should continue thanks to:
- flagship funds, with new Mid-large buyout, Digital (Venture), Growth and Private Debt vintages;
- the first fundraisings in divisions hitherto financed exclusively by the balance sheet;
- capital raising for numerous specialized and “bespoke” funds satisfying the specific needs of limited partners and private wealth management clients.
To date, the Group has secured €550m of fundraising in 2022.
Doubling of assets under management expected in 5-7 years
Given the current fundraising momentum and the increase in the value of assets, the Group has revised its growth trajectory upwards and plans to double its assets under management, which could reach €60bn, in 5 to 7 years under normal market conditions.
Increase in the share of ESG funds
As a leader in ESG, the Group aims to increase the share of its assets under management with a sustainable development objective, as defined in Article 9 of the European SFDR (EU 2019/2088) regulation.
Growth in the asset management activity margin
The Group confirms its objective to increase the FRE margin in the medium term to 35-40%, from around 30% in 2021. The rate of this growth will depend on fundraising, completed realizations and hirings made to prepare for the expansion.
Realizations planned in 2022 should be within the historical average in proportion to net assets. The divestments of Reden Solar and Orolia, which should be finalized this year, have already been announced. The number of realizations should again be particularly high in 2023.
7. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
