Technicolor Creative Studios: Update



Technicolor Creative Studios Update

  • Technicolor Creative Studios lowers2022 Adjusted EBITDA after lease guidance to €45-65 million at budget rate or €50-70 million at actual rates
  • Second half of 2022 difficulties will also affect 2023
  • Preliminary view for 2023 adjusted EBITDA after lease: flat or moderately up from expected 2022 landing

PARIS (FRANCE), NOVEMBER 15, 2022 – Technicolor Creative Studios (Euronext Paris: TCHCS) today updates the market on its 2022 and 2023 expected landing.

Technicolor Creative Studios still benefits from strong demand from its clients, notably at MPC and The Mill. However, this demand for original content is meeting up with a VFX production capacity still impacted by an unprecedented level of attrition.
The Group has identified and implemented significant actions since the summer to react. However, the anticipated improvements in recruitment, attrition and production efficiencies are not materializing at the expected pace, resulting in Technicolor Creative Studios to not deliver on time or at expected cost:

  • Recently, a significant amount of high margin sales has been missed at The Mill, due to senior resource constraints;
  • Some major MPC projects are being impacted by lower production efficiencies leading to late deliveries, extra spendings and margin decline.

On top of significant actions already implemented since the summer, the Group is actively working on a larger transformation program, encompassing several new key senior hires, along with further optimization of processes and metrics, and moving a greater level of production to India; further details to be shared at the Q3 results call November 30th. Operational metrics are improving and will aim to exceed historical performance. However, the activity will still be affected in the fourth quarter of 2022 and probably throughout 2023.

As a consequence of the above Technicolor Creative Studios is revising its Adjusted EBITDA after lease (new definition) 1 expectations as follows:

  • For 2022: guidance is revised downwards from €120-130 million to €45-65 million at budget rate2 or €50-70 million at actual rates3;
  • Preliminary view for 2023: flat or moderately up4 from expected 2022 landing, compared to €140-160 million previous estimates.
