Valeo revenues in first quarter 2014 hike 6% to 3.11 billion euros

Article by Christian A., on April 25, 2014

Valeo logged a 6-percent climb in revenues in the first quarter of 2014 to EUR3.11 billion ($4.3 billion), thanks to higher demand in China and North America as well as to end of the auto sales crisis in Europe. CEO Jacques Aschenbroich said in a statement that company’s results demonstrate its capacity to “outpace the market” in all production regions and in all business groups.

Valeo is now concentrating on technology that improves safety and enhances comfort while reducing pollution. The French company in 2013 was able to achieve a target to improve earnings as a proportion of sales thanks to higher pace of growth in the second half of the year.

Valeo is expecting the European car maker to expand between 1 percent and 2 percent this year, as the region recovers from the recent slump. Valeo reiterated a goal to have its full-year 2014 sales grow faster than auto markets in its main regions.

The French supplier is also targeting for "slight" gain in its operating margin in 2014. The company disclosed in February that it will construct six new sites -- including four in China -- and increase its global workforce by a third over the next four years.
