Philips announces Q3 2020 results and provides new financial targets for the 2021–2025 period

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style | October 19, 2020 Business Affairs

The work we are doing to support healthcare providers and medical staff with the provision of both COVID-19 and regular care remains a top priority for all of us at Philips. In close collaboration with our suppliers and partners, we have steeply ramped up the production volumes of products and solutions to help diagnose, treat, monitor and manage COVID-19 patients. We introduced a new Rapid Equipment Deployment Kit for ICU ramp-ups, allowing hospital staff to quickly deploy patient monitoring capabilities when additional critical care capacity is needed. To enhance patient care and improve care provider productivity, Philips entered into 11 long-term strategic partnerships with hospitals in the US, Europe and Asia. We announced a new multi-year partnership with Tampa General Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the US, to replace all of its patient monitors and upgrade key imaging technologies in the catheterization laboratories and interventional radiology rooms. We will also provide this hospital with unique workflow solutions and operational performance management services.

Looking ahead, we continue to see uncertainty and volatility related to the impact of COVID-19 across the world, but our order book remains solid. For the full year 2020, we continue to expect to deliver modest comparable sales growth, with an Adjusted EBITA margin of around the level of last year."

Business segment performance

The Diagnosis & Treatment businesses recorded a 3% comparable sales decline, compared to a 9% sales decline in Q2 2020. The postponement of installations and gradual recovery of elective procedures resulted in a low-single-digit comparable sales decline in Diagnostic Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy and a double-digit decline in Ultrasound. Comparable order intake showed a 5% decrease, compared to a 20% decrease in Q2 2020. The Adjusted EBITA margin decreased to 9.7%, mainly due to lower volumes and factory coverage, as well as mix changes.

Comparable sales in the Connected Care businesses increased 42%, with double-digit growth in Monitoring & Analytics and Sleep & Respiratory Care. Excluding the partial termination of the ventilator contract with HHS, comparable order intake showed a double-digit increase, with strong growth across all businesses. The Adjusted EBITA margin increased to 27.1%, driven by higher volumes and operating leverage.

The Personal Health businesses delivered a comparable sales increase of 6%, driven by high-single-digit growth in Personal Care and Domestic Appliances. The Adjusted EBITA margin amounted to 14.5%, which includes an adverse currency impact.
