Societe BIC: First Quarter 2023 Results

Clichy, France, April 25, 2023

+4.3% top line growth. Continued solid execution driven by the Horizon strategic plan.

Market share gains in most key regions building on 2022 momentum.

  • Human Expression: +8.5% Net Sales growth at constant currency (CC), driven by strong Back-to-School season in Brazil and double-digit growth in the Middle East and Africa regions
  • Flame for Life: -1.3% Net Sales change at CC versus Q1 2022 that benefited from exceptional Net Sales performance in US lighters related to positive phasing. Excluding this impact, Net Sales would have grown 8.2% at CC
  • Blade Excellence: +9.0% Net Sales growth at CC, fueled by efficient commercial execution in Europe and added-value products in Latin America

Horizon delivered further results: success of new, consumer-centric and more sustainable products and robust commercial execution both online and in-stores.

Adjusted EBIT margin at 13.0% impacted by input cost inflation, negative Forex, further investments in Brand Support and Opex.

Sustained Operating Cash Flow +€105.4 million. Free Cash Flow was negative 33.8 million due to higher inventory build ahead of the Back-to-School season.

Gonzalve Bich, Chief Executive Officer commented: "Heightened consumer demand for recent product innovations resulting from our Horizon Plan drove market share gains across most of our key regions during the first quarter of 2023. This includes the launches of our new BIC® EasyRinse razor in the US, the BIC® EZ Reach lighter in Europe, and an exclusive collection of Inkbox semi-permanent tattoos, available for the first time in-store at a major US retailer. Sales momentum was bolstered by strategic investments globally in expanded distribution channels, as well as compelling new consumer advertising campaigns helmed by influential celebrity talent. In a time of such macroeconomic uncertainty, our delivery of high-quality and value-for-money products that consumers trust drove topline growth following the prior year's exceptionally high comparable basis.
For the balance of the year, we will continue to focus on exemplary omnichannel execution as we bring consumer-centric innovation to both core and added-value products. Accordingly, we confirm our 2023 objectives to grow our business profitably across all divisions, with Horizon Plan serving as our North Star."

2023 Outlook confirmed (based on current market assumptions1F2)

Full Year 2023 Net Sales are expected to grow between +5% and +7% at constant currencies driven by price, mix and volumes. We expect to improve 2023 adjusted EBIT and adjusted EBIT margin, with a growing Gross Profit margin, partially offset by continued investments in our Operations and Brand support, aimed at driving our Horizon ambition of delivering long-term profitable growth.
Free Cash Flow is expected to be above €200 million in 2023, for the fifth year in a row.

First Quarter 2023 Net Sales increased 4.3% at constant currencies and 0.9% on a comparative basis. Net Sales growth was driven by solid commercial execution, both online and in-stores, in our Human Expression and Blade Excellence divisions; notably in developing market such as Latin America, India and Middle East and Africa.

Q1 2023 Gross Profit margin decreased by 2.0 points to 49.8%, negatively impacted by: input cost inflation (raw material and electricity costs), fixed cost absorption and Forex (mainly due to USD/MXN, as EUR/USD hedging was favorable). This was partially offset by the favorable impact of price and mix and manufacturing efficiencies. Adjusted EBIT margin was 13.0% compared to 19.8% in Q1 2022, driven by gross profit decline, and increased Opex and Brand Support investments. As a reminder, Q1 2022 margin benefited from exceptional Net Sales performance in US lighters related to positive phasing.

Non-recurring items included:

In Q1 2022:

  • €(1.0) million of acquisition costs related to Inkbox acquired in January 2022
  • €(3.0) million related to Ukraine operations impairment

In Q1 2023:

Operating Cash Flow was €105.4 million, resulting from good business performance. The €117.6 million negative change in Working Capital and others was mainly driven by higher Trade and other Receivables of €48.9 million linked to increased Net Sales and higher inventory levels of €50.2 million, primarily due to 2023 Back-to-School stock building. As a result, Q1 2023 Free Cash Flow before acquisitions and disposals was €(33.8) million.

At the end of March 2023, Net Cash position was €297.1 million, with €27.6 million in share buybacks.


  • Ordinary dividend of 2.56 per share to be approved and paid in May 2023
  • 27.6 million in share buybacks were completed by SOCIÉTÉ BIC at the end of March 2023
    452,994 shares were purchased at an average price of €60.89.


Consumer-centricity and Innovation

Q1 Net Sales performance was spurred on by a consumer-centric and strong innovation pipeline, as we pursued the execution of the Horizon Plan. Our breakthrough innovation the BIC® EasyRinse shaver launched online and in-stores in the US, showed promising early results, reflected in our market share value gain of 0.6% year-to-date. BIC® Soleil Escape, our most successful 2022 new item in Women Disposable segment, continued to contribute to growth in the US and is now being rolled out internationally. It has achieved a 3.3% market share in value in the US Women's Disposables segment. The new BIC® Break-Resistant mechanical pencil, with lead that is 75% stronger than the leading US competitor, was launched in the US and performed well both online and in-stores.


E-commerce sales were in line with last year as a percentage of Net Sales. Growth was driven by double digit Net Sales increase from Omniretailers (+19%) and from our Direct-to-Consumer businesses (+14%). Performance was fueled by solid results in our Flame for Life and Blade Excellence divisions, notably in Latin America and the Middle East and Africa regions.

Revenue Growth Management (RGM)

As we build on our 2022 momentum, our Horizon growth strategy continued to drive our RGM capabilities during the first quarter. We remain focused on developing a portfolio that meets the needs of our consumers with further Net Sales per SKU growth of 10% alongside a net SKU reduction of 6%. We also continued to drive top-line growth through positive pricing and mix as well customer-oriented investments across our three divisions. For example, in North America, performance was driven by positive mix due to premium products, such as the Mechanical Pencil BIC® Break-Resistant in Human Expression and the BIC® EasyRinse shaver in Blade Excellence.

External Growth and New businesses

Our newly owned semi-permanent tattoo business Inkbox grew low double-digit year-on-year, fueled by strong growth online, as well as offline. For the first time, Inkbox tattoos were launched at a well-known retailer in the US across 1,500 stores nationwide during the quarter. This major retail collaboration will expand Inkbox's in-store presence in the beauty aisle through standalone impactful displays. Additionally, during the quarter, Inkbox launched its new nail collection online, and started production in a UK based facility to enhance its international expansion.

Path to Sustainability

We continued to progress on our Sustainable Development journey, focusing on the reduction of virgin plastic in our products and packaging, and launching innovative products with reduced environmental impact. One such new product is our BIC® Ecolutions Gel Pen, made of 78% ocean-bound plastic, available since Q4 last year in the US. This new product complements our Ecolutions ecofriendly stationery range made of at least 50% recycled materials in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging.

The Human Expression division performance was driven by growth in Developing Markets including Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and India.

In Europe and North America, negative phasing impacted performance following customers' early 2022 Back-to-School season orders last year. In Europe, in the face of declining markets, we gained market share in value in France +1.5pts and UK +0.2 pts7, notably driven by added-value segments like Coloring, in line with our Horizon ambitions. In the US, BIC successfully gained +0.4 pts in value8, fueled by core stationery products, including Mechanical Pencils, Correction and Permanent Markers. This proof point illustrates that BIC remains a value and valued brand chosen by consumers. As we pursue our goals to grow in adjacent segments, our new semi-permanent tattoo business Inkbox grew low double digit, led by solid growth with a major online player and a successful launch in-store at a large US retailer.

In the Southern Hemisphere, Back-to-School performance was solid in Brazil, through strong execution both in-store and online and the success of core segments like Ball Pen and added-value products such as the Intensity range. This was in line with our Horizon goal to increase share in Creative Expression. In Mexico we outperformed the market in premium segments such as Coloring Markers. Sell-in was also driven by early Back-to-School orders. In the Middle East and Africa, Net Sales grew double-digit fueled by a robust Back-to-School season in Kenya and double-digit growth in Morrocco and Nigeria led by our core product, the BIC® Cristal Medium. Cello Net Sales performance in India was led by favorable mix with added-value products in the above 10 Rupee segment such as the Butterflow range which contributed successfully to growth.

Q1 2023 Human Expression division adjusted EBIT margin was 1.4% compared to 6.8% in Q1 2022. The decrease was driven by unfavorable Forex, mainly the US dollar/Mexican peso exchange rate, manufacturing costs, as well as higher Opex. This was partially offset by favorable pricing and mix. Input cost inflation was more than offset by manufacturing efficiencies.

The Flame for Life division was driven by high-single to double-digit Net Sales performance in all key regions, except in the US which was impacted by the negative phasing versus Q1 2022. Excluding this impact, Net Sales would have grown 8.2% at constant currency.

In the US, the total lighter market declined -5.5% in volume and -1.2% in value9. However, BIC maintained its leadership position, gaining share in both volume, +1.5 pts, and value, +1.5 pts, ahead of its competitors. This was fueled by solid execution in the Modern Mass channel and positive price and mix, driven by the robust growth of added-value lighters including BIC® EZ Reach and Djeep®, combined with BIC Ecolutions launches at major retailers. Q1 Net Sales performance in the US was impacted by the negative phasing versus Q1 2022, which benefited from delayed shipments following supply issues in Q4 2021. In the Utility Lighters market in the US, BIC gained 5.9 pts in value boosted by performance in both Convenience and Modern mass channels, owing to the rebound in product availability compared to last year, due to sea freight challenges and longer lead times.

In Europe, Net Sales grew high single digit, driven by price increases, further distribution in Eastern Europe and favorable mix with the success of our premium products such as decorated lighters, in line with our Horizon strategy to move towards a more value-driven model. BIC's innovative EZ Reach lighter is currently being launched progressively across Europe.

In Latin America, Brazil Net Sales grew double digit fueled by positive market trends, continued demand for smoking and non-smoking occasions, alongside high barriers for imported lighters. Performance was driven by all categories from classic pocket lighters to decorated and utility lighters, which supports our Flame for Life strategy to address further consumer needs for all flame occasions while leaning towards a more value-driven model.

Q1 2023 Flame for Life division adjusted EBIT margin was 36.7% compared to 38.5% in Q1 2022. This was the result of unfavorable fixed cost absorption, negative Net Sales operating leverage in the US and higher Opex investments. Brand Support investments were also higher as we launched a new BIC® EZ Reach advertising campaign in Europe. This was partly offset by favorable pricing and Forex (EUR/USD hedging). Input cost inflation was offset by manufacturing efficiencies.

The Blade Excellence division's performance was driven by the success of added-value and new products in the 3 to 5 blade and Hybrid ranges in Europe and Latin America.

In Europe, BIC gained market share in value in France +3.3 pts, Italy +1.3 pts, and Poland +1.7 pts10 fueled by the success of 3 to 5 blade products in both female and male segments. Net Sales grew double-digit in key countries across the region led by our added-value products in the Flex and Soleil ranges and new products, in line with our Horizon goals.

In the US, we outpaced the market by +0.6 pts11 gaining share in both male and female segments, notably thanks to the performance of our added-value Flex range. The new breakthrough innovation BIC® EasyRinse shaver also contributed to growth, achieving 0.6% market share of women's and men's disposables in value, boosted by the impactful media campaign launched in Q1 across the US.

We pursued our successful trade-up strategy in Latin America. In Brazil, we gained market share, up 0,9 pts in value12 thanks to strong media plans and further distribution gains for our premium products such as Comfort 3, the Hybrid and Soleil ranges. In Mexico, we outpaced the market by +0.4 pts in value in both Traditional and Modern trade channels.

Q1 2023 Blade Excellence division adjusted EBIT margin was 4.5% compared to 22.4% in Q1 2022, caused by significant input cost inflation (raw materials and electricity) and unfavorable Forex, which our manufacturing efficiencies were not able to fully offset. The margin was also impacted by higher Opex and Brand Support investments, mostly related to the launch of BIC® EasyRinse major advertising campaign in the US.
