Continental revises outlook for fiscal 2021

Due to the following factors, Continental is adjusting its outlook for the 2021 fiscal year: 


Given the ongoing constraints related to semiconductor components as well as uncertainties related to the supply chain and in customer demand, Continental expects that global light vehicle production growth in fiscal 2021 will be between -1% and +1% versus fiscal 2020. The Company’s previous outlook from August 5, 2021 assumed global light vehicle production would grow by +8% to +10%.

Negative effects from cost inflation for key inputs including electronics and electromechanical components for Automotive Technologies, raw materials for Rubber Technologies as well as energy and logistics are becoming more material. 

Assuming that exchange rates in the fourth quarter of 2021 do not materially differ to those as of September 30, 2021, the aforementioned factors result in a revised outlook for fiscal 2021 for continuing operations as follows:


Consolidated sales are expected to be approximately €32.5 to €33.5 billion (previously €33.5 to €34.5 billion) and the adjusted EBIT margin is anticipated to be in the range of approximately 5.2% to 5.6% (previously 6.5% to 7.0%).

For Automotive Technologies sales of approximately €14.5 to €15.0 billion (previously €16.0 to €16.5 billion) are expected. Due to the lower sales level, an adjusted EBIT margin is expected to be in the range of approximately -2% to -2.5% (previously 0.5% to 1.0%).

For Rubber Technologies sales of approximately €17.2 to €17.5 billion (previously €17.2 to €17.8 billion) and an adjusted EBIT margin in the range of approximately 12.3% to 12.7% (previously 12.5% to 13.0%) are expected.
