Michelin CGDEB (EU:ML)
Historical Stock Chart
1 Year : From Jul 2018 to Jul 2019
By Max Bernhard
French tire maker Compagnie Generale des Etablissements Michelin (ML.FR) said Thursday that its third-quarter revenue rose and revised its full-year market expectations.
Third-quarter revenue rose 5.2% to EUR5.62 billion euros ($6.49 billion), after a rebound in truck-tire demand and market share gains in its large-passenger-car tire segment.
Michelin revised its markets scenario for the full year, citing a decline in passenger-car, light-truck and truck-tire markets in the third quarter and expectations of further weakness in the fourth quarter.
The group said it now expects, a slight increase in volumes for 2018. It now forecasts an increase of at least EUR200 million in operating income from recurring activities at constant exchange rates, excluding impacts from pricing-mix changes and raw-materials costs in the second half.
Michelin confirmed its target of structural free cash flow of more than EUR1.1 billion in 2018.
