Paris, 13 February 2019

Amundi's Board of Directors, chaired by Xavier Musca, convened on 12 February 2019 to approve the financial statements for 2018.

Commenting on the figures, Yves Perrier, CEO, said:

"Despite an unfavourable market environment, Amundi's results increased sharply once again in 2018. There are two factors behind this improvement. First, business momentum remained strong, despite the market context, and benefited from Amundi's significant international presence, particularly in Asia. Second, the Pioneer integration has been a success, and the acquisition has significantly strengthened Amundi's business model; the integration was executed quickly and competently, and therefore the total amount of synergies has been increased to €175m per year ".

I.        Results Annual results rose and were in line with the stated targets despite an unfavourable environment

Amundi's results rose once again in 2018: accounting net income increased by a sharp 25.5% compared with 2017. Adjusted net income reached €946m, up 3.1% compared with 2017[8], and up 9% compared with 2017 excluding extraordinary financial revenues[9]

These results are all the more remarkable given that the market environment became much less favourable since the second quarter. In 2018, most listed asset classes trended down and volatility was high. This led to heightened risk aversion, particularly among Retail clients. The environment had a negative impact on inflows and on performance fee generation. The increase in results reflects strong business activity and the successful integration of Pioneer, which allowed Amundi to reassess the amount of synergies (€175m instead of the €150m originally anticipated).

These strong results are in line with the targets announced in the three-year plan and demonstrate the soundness of Amundi's business model.

Full-year 2018

  •  
  • Accounting income[10] rose sharply in 2018, benefiting from the contribution of Pioneer (consolidated in H2 2017) and from growth momentum: accounting net income, Group share amounted to €855m, an increase of 25.5% compared with 2017.

    Accounting EPS were €4.24, a sharp 19.8% increase compared with 2017.

                 

  •  
  • Adjusted income[11], which measures the Group's performance on a comparable basis, increased to €946m due mainly to lower operating expenses stemming from the realisation of Pioneer synergies.

    • Net revenues[12] proved resilient at €2,582m (-5.2% compared with 20178). This contraction was due to an unfavourable basis of comparison as 2017 benefited from an exceptionally high level of performance fees and financial income (related to disposals of interests ahead of the Pioneer acquisition and a favourable market environment). Net asset management revenue was virtually unchanged: the rise in net management fees (+1.9%8) was offset by lower performance fees. Additionally, the negative market environment, particularly at the end of the year, had an adverse impact on financial income (mark-to-market valuation). The average margin[13] on assets under management held up well at 18.8bp of assets.
    • Operating expenses[14] fell significantly (-6,8%8), due to the rapid implementation of Pioneer-related cost synergies (€110m in 2018), and despite the additional external research expenses for MiFID II and the first reinvestments in growth.
    • This led to a cost/income ratio11 of 51.5%, an improvement of 0.9 pt8.
    • The share of net income of equity-accounted entities (essentially Asian joint ventures) rose significantly to €50m (+50% compared with 20178).
    • In light of the lower tax rate, mainly due to the US tax reform, adjusted net income, Group share was €946m, up 3.1% compared with 20178 and up 9% compared with full-year 2017 excluding extraordinary financial revenues7.

    Fourth-quarter 2018

    Adjusted net income remained high (€225m) despite the negative effects of the market environment which had an adverse impact on revenues (-17.5%). Net asset management revenue contracted by 11.2% due mainly to the basis of comparison, as performance fees were particularly high in fourth-quarter 2017; net management fees were resilient, however, at -2.9%. This decrease in revenues was offset by a sharp decline in operating expenses (-14.6%). Excluding financial revenues in 2017 and 2018, adjusted net income was stable.

    The sharp decline in expenses led to a cost/income ratio of 52.5%.

    II.        Business activity

    Strong net inflows, driven by Retail, MLT[15]assets and International

    Full-year 2018

    Inflows remained high in 2018 (+€42bn), driven mainly by medium/long-term assets (+€36.3bn) and Retail (+€30.7bn[16]). Given the negative market effect (-€43bn) concentrated at the end of the year, assets under management reached €1,425bn at 31 December 2018, stable over 12 months.

    The quarterly inflow pattern was particularly unusual, as most of the flows were generated at the beginning of the year: Q1: +€39.8bn, Q2: +€2.6bn, Q3: +€6.1bn and Q4: -€6.5bn.

    These trends were consistent with a sharply declining European asset management market[17] (+€62bn in 2018 compared with +€846bn in 2017) with outflows accelerating at the end of the year.

    Net inflows were strong once again in the Retail segment (+€30.7bn16) but slowed significantly at the end of the year against the backdrop of heightened risk aversion in Europe. Of note for the full year:

    • Momentum was very strong for net inflows in the Asian JVs (mainly in China and India) where assets under management reached €142bn at end-2018;
    • Net inflows held up well in the French networks, thanks to MLT assets (Unit-Linked and discretionary portfolio management);
    • Net inflows in the International networks remained positive, particularly in Italy (+€4.3bn with discretionary portfolio management and Unit-Linked) thanks to the partnership with UniCredit;
    • The slowdown was sharper for Third-party distributors, where inflows remained positive in 2018 (excluding the €6.5bn in assets reinternalised by Fineco in Q3 2018), but were affected at the end of the year by heightened risk aversion.

    Annual inflows in the Institutionals and Corporates segment were strong (+€11bn) despite a more challenging year end. Of note for the full year:

    • Institutionals and Sovereigns: a high level of annual net inflows (primarily in MLT products) despite the termination of two mandates (-€6bn) at the end of the year; 
    • Corporates: treasury product outflows (concentrated in Q2), but a high level of MLT asset activity (mainly in Corporate pension funds);
    • Employee Savings: an excellent 2018 (net inflows of +€2.7bn versus +€1bn in 2017), which confirms this business line's growth potential (strengthened by the possibilities offered by the Pacte law in France).

    All asset classes contributed to net inflows in 2018. Medium/long-term assets represented +€36.3bn (+€42.8bn excluding reinternalisation of the Fineco asset management mandate), and treasury product activity was lower this year.

    Trends were particularly favourable for the growth drivers developed several years ago:

    • Passive management and smart beta[18]: another year of strong business activity, with +€14bn in net inflows in 2018, bringing AuM to €95bn at end-2018, a 5.6% increase vs. end-2017.
      • ETFs: net inflows in 2018 of +€3.8bn (no. 4 among European ETF providers[19]), bringing AuM to €38.6bn at end-2018 (fourth-largest European player)19
    • Real and alternative assets18: steady growth with 2018 net inflows increasing to +€3.5bn (vs. +€2.3bn in 2017), in particular in Real Estate, Private Debt and Private Equity.

    Lastly, net inflows continued to be driven by the International segment. Activity was brisk in Asia in the JVs (in China and India) as well as in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Activity remained strong in Italy (+€8.2bn[20]) as well as in Europe (mainly in Germany and the Netherlands). In France, business activity was strong in MLT assets (+€9.5bn in 2018), offset by treasury product outflows in Corporates.

    Fourth-quarter 2018

    Flows were negative at -€6.5bn in fourth-quarter 2018, even though the Retail segment was resilient (+€0.5bn) thanks to the Asian JVs and the still-positive business activity in the French networks (+€0.5bn). In Institutionals, net outflows of -€7.0bn can be attributed mainly to the termination of two sovereign client mandates; the Corporates segment nevertheless performed well at the end of the year (+€1.8bn, mainly in MLT assets).

    III.        Dividend and financial position

      An attractive dividend policy

    The Board of Directors has decided to propose a dividend of €2.90 per share in cash at the General Meeting to be held on 16 May 2019, i.e. an increase of +16% vs. 2017.

    This dividend offer represents a payout ratio of 65% of the Group's share of net income excluding integration costs (based on the number of shares at end-2018), and a 5.9% yield based on the share price on 8 February 2019 (at the close). Shares shall be designated ex-dividend on 24 May 2019 and paid out as from 28 May 2019.

    A strengthened financial structure

    Once again, Amundi's financial structure was solid at end-2018. Tangible equity[21] amounted to €2.3bn, a €0.4bn increase compared with end-2017. 

    In June 2018, rating agency Fitch reiterated Amundi's A+ rating with a stable outlook, the best in the sector.

    IV.        Conclusion and outlook

    Amundi'sgrowth trend in 2018 confirmed the resilience of its business model: the integration of Pioneer is almost complete and has been successful.

    This year's results are in line with the path outlined in February 2018. In a less buoyant environment, Amundi remains in a strong position to continue its profitable growth, based on the following strategic priorities:

    • Continue to expand in each of its business lines, by taking advantage of its leadership position in the Retail networks and accelerating its penetration among institutional and corporate clients,
    • Forge new distribution partnerships, in particular in Europe and Asia,
    • Continue to promote its range of products and services, 
    • Expand its presence along the value chain, mainly by developing Amundi Services,
    • Strengthen its responsible investor positioning to meet clients' growing expectations.

    Methodological appendix

  • 2018 Income statement

     
  • Accounting data
  • In 2018, the data corresponds to 12 months of activity for Amundi and 12 months of Pioneer's activity. In 2017, the data corresponds to 12 months of activity for Amundi and six months of activity for Pioneer, which has been consolidated since 1 July 2017.  

  • Adjusted data
  • To present an income statement that is closer to the economic reality, the following adjustments have been made:

  • 2018: restatement of Pioneer-related integration costs and amortisation of distribution contracts (deducted from net revenues) with SG, BAWAG and UniCredit.
  • 2017: restatement of Pioneer-related integration costs and amortisation of distribution contracts (deducted from net revenues) with SG and BAWAG over twelve months and with UniCredit over six months (as the contract with UniCredit did not start until Q3 2017).

     
  • Combined data
  • The combined data are different from the pro forma data (as presented in the 2016 Registration Document), which included restatements for the financing assumptions for the acquisition of Pioneer: additional financing costs, reduced financial income.

    Note on combined and accounting data

    Costs associated with the integration of Pioneer Investments:

    Costs associated with the integration of Pioneer:

    • 2018: €56m before tax and €42m after tax
    • 2017: €135m before tax and €88m after tax

    Amortisation of distribution contracts:

  • 2018: €71m before tax and €50m after tax 
  • 2017: €44m before tax and €30m after tax
  •  
  • Amortisation of distribution contracts with UniCredit
  • When Pioneer was acquired, 10-year distribution contracts were entered into with UniCredit networks in Italy, Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic; the gross valuation of these contracts came to €546m (posted to the balance sheet under Intangible Assets). At the same time, a Deferred Tax Liability of €161m was recognised. Thus the net amount is €385m which is amortised using the straight-line method over 10 years, as from 1 July 2017.

    In the Group's income statement, the net tax impact of this amortisation is €38m over a full year (or €55m before tax), posted under "Other revenues," and is added to existing amortisations of the SG and Bawag distribution contracts of €11m after tax over a full year (€17m before tax).

  • Alternative Performance Indicator
  • Adjusted net income

    In order to present a performance indicator that is closer to economic reality, Amundi publishes adjusted net income, which is reconciled with accounting net income, Group share in the following manner:
