Frans van Houten, CEO:

 

“Het begin van 2020 werd gekenmerkt door de uitbraak van COVID-19. Sinds januari hebben wij al onze middelen ingezet om deze ongekende uitdaging te beantwoorden. Bij Philips concentreren wij ons op onze drieledige zorgplicht: het beantwoorden van kritieke behoeften bij onze klanten, het zekerstellen van de veiligheid en gezondheid van onze medewerkers en het borgen van de bedrijfscontinuïteit. Ik ben zeer trots op de toewijding, het harde werk en de vindingrijkheid van onze medewerkers om Philips volledig draaiende te houden. Daarvoor wil ik hen bedanken.

 

COVID-19 heeft een belangrijk effect op onze kwartaalresultaten gehad. Er was een toegenomen vraag naar onze professionele zorgproducten en -oplossingen, met een vergelijkbare groei van de omzet en de orderontvangst voor de Connected Care- en Diagnosis & Treatment-activiteiten.

 

Vergelijkbare orderontvangst nam toe met 23%, met name bij diagnostische beeldvorming, ziekenhuisbeademingsapparatuur en patiëntmonitoren. Wij investeren nu meer dan EUR 100 miljoen om onze productievolumes sterk op te schroeven, in nauwe samenwerking met onze leveranciers en partners. Tegelijkertijd was er een belangrijke afname in de vraag naar ons Personal Health-portfolio en zagen wij een neerwaartse trend bij Image-Guided Therapy-procedures naarmate het kwartaal vorderde. Dit leidde tot een vergelijkbare omzetafname van 2% en een gecorrigeerde EBITA-marge van 5,9% voor de Groep.

 

Het effect van COVID-19 nam geleidelijk toe gedurende het eerste kwartaal. In eerste instantie raakte het onze activiteiten in China en Asia Pacific vanaf eind januari en vervolgens trof het onze activiteiten in de rest van de wereld vanaf maart. Op die basis verwachten wij dat het effect in al onze regio's voelbaar zal zijn in gedurende het hele tweede kwartaal. Dit zal naar verwachting leiden tot een sterke omzetafname voor onze Personal Health-activiteiten en een aanzienlijke hoogenkelcijferige afname voor onze Diagnosis & Treatment-activiteiten, deels gecompenseerd door een belangrijke omzettoename voor onze Connected Care-activiteiten.

 

Gesteld dat wij onze bestaande orderportefeuille voor de Diagnosis & Treatment- en Connected Care-activiteiten volgens plan kunnen omzetten, facultatieve procedures naar het normale niveau terugkeren en de consumentenvraag geleidelijk verbetert, is het ons doel om in de tweede helft van het jaar wederom tot groei en een verbeterde winstgevendheid voor de Groep te komen. Als gevolg hiervan streven wij voor het gehele jaar 2020 naar een bescheiden vergelijkbare omzetgroei en een verbeterde gecorrigeerde EBITA-marge. Gelet op de huidige onzekerheid en schommelingen zullen wij op dit moment geen specifiekere verwachtingen voor 2020 uitspreken.”

Business segment performance

 

The Diagnosis & Treatment businesses recorded 2% comparable sales growth, led by mid-single-digit growth in Diagnostic Imaging, partly offset by a low-single-digit decline for Image-Guided Therapy due to the postponement of elective procedures. Comparable order intake was in line with Q1 2019, with double-digit growth for Diagnostic Imaging offset by a double-digit decline for Image- Guided Therapy. The Adjusted EBITA margin increased to 6.3%, as growth and productivity were partly offset by an unfavorable mix.

 

Comparable sales in the Connected Care businesses increased 7%, with double-digit growth in Sleep & Respiratory Care. Comparable order intake showed a very strong double-digit increase, driven by strong demand for patient monitors and hospital ventilators. The Adjusted EBITA margin increased to 9.8%, mainly due to growth and productivity.

 

The Personal Health businesses recorded a comparable sales decline of 13%, with all businesses declining due to significantly decreased consumer demand, resulting in an Adjusted EBITA margin of 7.1%.

 

Philips’ ongoing focus on innovation and strategic partnerships resulted in the following key events in the quarter:

 

  • Building on Philips’ initial increase in hospital ventilator production in the first quarter, which already enabled the supply of additional ventilators to hospitals in the most affected regions in China, southern Europe and the US, Philips plans a further fourfold production increase by the third quarter of 2020. This plan will enable Philips to deliver 43,000 fully featured, critical care ventilators to the US government in 2020, while simultaneously delivering such ventilators to the rest of the world.
  • To further address the unprecedented demand for ventilators, Philips introduced the Philips Respironics E30 ventilator for emergency use when a fully featured critical care ventilator is not available. Philips is targeting a production of the new ventilator - which has been designed for large-scale production - of 15,000 units per week in April.
  • Philips introduced several dedicated telehealth solutions to help relieve the tremendous pressure placed on scarce resources by the growing number of COVID-19 patients. Based on its proven Patient Reported Outcomes Management solution, which is being used by more than 100 healthcare institutions globally, Philips enabled Dutch hospitals and GPs to remotely screen and monitor patients with COVID-19.
  • In connection with the COVID-19 emergency, the US FDA has granted a temporary waiver for the use of consumer monitors with the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution, providing extra flexibility for US pathologists to work from home. For example, a leading health system in New York has expanded the Philips IntelliSite Pathology solution installed at its hospitals with additional scanners, enabling pathologists to remotely access an increased volume of digital images of patient tissue, thereby supporting real-time pathology interpretations in critical cases and improved patient outcomes.
  • Continuing its success in forging long-term strategic partnerships, Philips signed several new agreements. For example, Philips entered into an 8-year strategic partnership with Paracelsus Clinics in Germany, offering solutions that maximize the availability of imaging systems and leverage digitalization and process optimization to realize quality and efficiency improvements.
  • Demonstrating the efficiency of Philips’ Enterprise Monitoring-as-a-Service model, US-based Jackson Memorial Hospital estimates it will save more than 13,000 staff hours from workflow improvement and automation of manual tasks using Philips’ monitoring solutions. Moreover, nursing staff gave the new patient monitoring solution a 90% satisfaction rating, up from 8% prior to the new system and software.

 

Cost savings

 

In the first quarter, procurement savings amounted to EUR 36 million. Overhead and other productivity programs delivered savings of EUR 59 million.

Executive Committee update

 

Rob Cascella, currently Chief Business Leader of the Precision Diagnosis businesses and member of the Executive Committee, jointly responsible for the Diagnosis & Treatment segment together with Bert van Meurs, will take on the role of Philips’ strategic business development per May 1, 2020. He will remain a member of the Executive Committee. Kees Wesdorp, currently General Manager of Diagnostic Imaging, will succeed Rob Cascella in his current roles and become a member of the Executive Committee reporting to Philips CEO Frans van Houten.

 

Frans van Houten: “I would like to express my gratitude for Rob’s considerable contribution to Philips since he joined the company in 2015. Under his leadership, the Diagnosis & Treatment businesses have achieved a major step-up on the quality front and pivoted to outcomes-driven solutions. Most recently, Rob established and led our Precision Diagnosis businesses and was jointly responsible for the Diagnosis & Treatment segment. I am pleased that Rob will lead Philips’ strategic business development, and that Kees will be his successor. Kees will join the Executive Committee with a strong accomplishment record, having led the transformation of the Diagnostic Imaging business by increasing customer and employee engagement, renewing the product and solutions portfolio, and improving profitability. I am confident that he will further build out the Precision Diagnosis businesses through the transformation to solutions, continuing to drive robust growth and increased profitability. Kees and Rob will be working closely to ensure a seamless transition, with formal handover on May 1 of this year.”

 

Capital allocation

 

Philips has a strong balance sheet and robust liquidity position. In view of the possible continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Philips has taken the following measures to further enhance its liquidity position:

 

Share buyback program

As of the end of the first quarter of 2020, Philips has completed 50.3% of its EUR 1.5 billion share buyback program for capital reduction purposes that was announced on January 29, 2019. On March 23, 2020, Philips announced that the second half of the program will be executed through individual forward transactions, to be entered into in the course of 2020, with the settlement dates extending into the second half of 2021. Further details can be found here.

 

Euro Medium-Term Note

In the first quarter, Philips successfully placed EUR 500 million fixed-rate Sustainability Innovation notes due 2025 and EUR 500 million fixed-rate notes due 2030.

 

Dividend

Philips maintains its proposed dividend of EUR 0.85 per common share against the net income of 2019. The distribution of this dividend will be in shares only, instead of the currently proposed distribution in cash or in shares at the option of the shareholder. To that effect, Philips withdraws the dividend proposal that was already submitted to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to be held on April 30, 2020. Philips plans to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders expected to take place in the second half of June 2020, the agenda of which will include the revised proposal to declare a distribution of EUR 0.85 per common share, in shares only. The increase in issued share capital is expected to be offset by the share buyback program mentioned above.

 

In line with the measures described above, the Supervisory Board and the members of the Board of Management have agreed that the 2019 Annual Incentive for the Board of Management will be paid out in shares instead of cash. More information on the realization of the 2019 Annual Incentive can be found in the Remuneration Report, as included in the 2019 Annual Report (p 70-71).

 

Regulatory update

 

Philips Philips continues to fulfill its obligations under the Consent Decree [1] and remains in dialogue with the US FDA. In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, Philips is working with the FDA’s Emergency Response and Product Evaluation teams to provide them with relevant information, such as Philips’ production ramp-up plans for critical products and solutions to combat COVID-19. Philips is actively seeking and has obtained authorizations through the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) process for the expanded use of several of its devices during the COVID-19 public health emergency, including for the Philips Respironics E30 ventilator, which received authorization on April 8, 2020.

 

 

[1] Under the Consent Decree, Philips continues to export its range of AED devices and manufacture and distribute its HS1/OnSite/Home automated external defibrillator (AED) model in the US. The company may also continue to service the AEDs and defibrillator/monitors provided that certain conditions are met and provide consumables and the relevant accessories.

Forward-looking statements and other important information

 

Forward-looking statements


This document and the related oral presentation, including responses to questions following the presentation, contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Philips and certain of the plans and objectives of Philips with respect to these items. Examples of forward-looking statements include: statements made about the strategy; estimates of sales growth; future Adjusted EBITA; future restructuring, acquisition-related and other costs; future developments in Philips’ organic business; and the completion of acquisitions and divestments. By their nature, these statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances and there are many factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these statements.

 

These factors include but are not limited to: changes in industry or market circumstances; economic and political developments; market and supply chain disruptions due to the COVID-19 outbreak; Philips’ increasing focus on health technology; the realization of Philips’ growth ambitions and results in growth geographies; lack of control over certain joint ventures; integration of acquisitions; securing and maintaining Philips’ intellectual property rights and unauthorized use of third-party intellectual property rights; compliance with quality standards, product safety laws and good manufacturing practices; exposure to IT security breaches, IT disruptions, system changes or failures; supply chain management; ability to create new products and solutions; attracting and retaining personnel; financial impacts from Brexit; compliance with regulatory regimes, including data privacy requirements; governmental investigations and legal proceedings with regard to possible anticompetitive market practices and other matters; business conduct rules and regulations; treasury risks and other financial risks; tax risks; costs of defined-benefit pension plans and other post-retirement plans; reliability of internal controls, financial reporting and management process. As a result, Philips’ actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals and expectations set forth in such forward-looking statements. For a discussion of factors that could cause future results to differ from such forward-looking statements, see also the Risk management chapter included in the Annual Report 2019.

 

Third-party market share data

 

Statements regarding market share, including those regarding Philips’ competitive position, contained in this document are based on outside sources such as research institutes, industry and dealer panels in combination with management estimates. Where information is not yet available to Philips, those statements may also be based on estimates and projections prepared by outside sources or management. Rankings are based on sales unless otherwise stated.

 

Use of non-IFRS information

 

In presenting and discussing the Philips Group’s financial position, operating results and cash flows, management uses certain non-IFRS financial measures. These non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed in isolation as alternatives to the equivalent IFRS measure and should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS measures. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. A reconciliation of these non-IFRS measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measures is contained in this document. Further information on non-IFRS measures can be found in the Annual Report 2019.

 

Use of fair value information

 

In presenting the Philips Group’s financial position, fair values are used for the measurement of various items in accordance with the applicable accounting standards. These fair values are based on market prices, where available, and are obtained from sources that are deemed to be reliable. Readers are cautioned that these values are subject to changes over time and are only valid at the balance sheet date. When quoted prices or observable market data are not readily available, fair values are estimated using appropriate valuation models and unobservable inputs. Such fair value estimates require management to make significant assumptions with respect to future developments, which are inherently uncertain and may therefore deviate from actual developments. Critical assumptions used are disclosed in the Annual Report 2019. In certain cases independent valuations are obtained to support management’s determination of fair values.

 

Presentation

 

All amounts are in millions of euros unless otherwise stated. Due to rounding, amounts may not add up precisely to totals provided. All reported data is unaudited. Financial reporting is in accordance with the accounting policies as stated in the Annual Report 2019. Certain prior-year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

Effective Q1 2020, Philips has simplified its order intake policy by aligning horizons for all modalities to 18 months to revenue, compared to previously used delivery horizons of 6 months for Ultrasound, 12 months for Connected Care and 15 months for Diagnosis & Treatment. At the same time, Philips has aligned order intake for software contracts to the same 18 months to revenue horizon, meaning that only the next 18 months conversion to revenue under the contract is recognized, compared to the full contract values recognized previously. This change eliminates major variances in order intake growth and better reflects expected revenue in the short term from order intake booked in the reporting period. Prior-year comparable order intake amounts have been restated accordingly. This realignment has not resulted in any material additional order intake recognition in Q1 2020.
