  • Targets EBITDA margin of 11.8-12.3% in 2022 vs. 13.4% in 2021
  • 2022 sales expected to rise to 19.2-20.0 billion euros
  • Sees “minimal” direct impact from Ukraine crisis
  • Shares fall 10%

Feb 25 (Reuters) – French car parts maker Valeo (VLOF.PA)said on Friday it expected to report lower core profit margin this year amid geopolitical tensions and inflationary pressures, after 2021 margin missed the group’s target.

“Overall, Valeo’s H2/21 results were consistent with the Jan 26 pre-announce, but 2022 guidance was well below consensus expectations,” RBC analyst Tom Narayan said in a note.

He added this was in line with what Renault (RENA.PA), Michelin (MICP.PA), Faurecia (EPED.PA) and Stellantis (STLA.MI) had earlier said, suggesting companies remain cautious amid the global chip shortage.
