Chairman's letter

To our shareholders

.

Sales: USD 1,490.4 million, 17.8% lower than USD 1,812.8 million in the first half of 2019.

The 17.8% sales decrease reflects a 15.2% volume decrease, a 2.0% negative currency impact, a 1.6%

increase from acquisitions and a 2.2% decrease from divestments. Volume decreased in all areas.

North America accounted for 50% of sales, Europe 40%, Asia 3%, Latin America 3% and Australia 4%.

Window Coverings were 91% and Architectural Products were 9% of sales.

.

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization - EBITDA:

USD 164.5 million, 28.0% lower than USD 228.5 million in the first half of 2019.

.

Income from Operations (before other income/expense):

USD 88.9 million compared with USD 162.0 million in the first half of 2019.

Results in local currencies were lower in all areas, except in Australia where results were better.

.

Other income/expense: USD 44.5 million negative compared with USD 5.2 million positive in the first half

of 2019. Hunter Douglas is restructuring its operations to an expected lower level of sales. The 2020

charges mainly relate to reorganization expenses in North America and Europe while the 2019 credit was

for the restatement of divestments.

.

Profit before Tax: USD 39.3 million compared with USD 161.1 million in the first half of 2019.

.

Total Net Profit: USD 28.5 million (per share EUR 0.74) compared with USD 125.1 million in the first half

of 2019 (per share EUR 3.17).

Capital expenditures were USD 32 million compared with USD 54 million in the first half of 2019, while depreciation was USD 64 million compared with USD 56 million in the first half of 2019. For the full year capital expenditures are expected to be approximately USD 85 million and depreciation USD 130 million.

Operating cash flow: USD 60 million compared with USD 134 million in the first half of 2019.

Shareholder's equity was USD 1,767 million compared with USD 1,798 million at the end of 2019, reflecting the first half year results decreased by a negative exchange translation.

RONAE (Return before interest/net assets employed) was 10.3% compared with 14.3% in the first half of 2019.

Outlook

Considering the continuing COVID-19 crisis the outlook remains uncertain.

Hunter Douglas is in a strong position in terms of its brands, products, distribution and finances.

Financial reporting

To the best of our knowledge and in accordance with the applicable accounting principles for interim financial reporting, the interim consolidated financial statements give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit and loss of the Group.

The Chairman's letter gives a true and fair view of the important events of the past six-months' period and their impact on the half year financial statements, as well as the principal risks and uncertainties for the six-months' period to come.

Risk Management

COVID-19

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 will significantly influence the performance of Hunter Douglas, although the exact impact will largely depend on the duration and severity of government measures and will substantially differ between countries as well as the impact on the general economic outlook. To the extent possible - considering different situations in various countries where Hunter Douglas is active - management has taken measures to maintain sales, reduce costs and keep liquidity. The financial statements also reflect the facts and circumstances at the time of preparation. The situation changes on a daily basis giving rise to inherent uncertainty. Management will closely monitor the corona situation and take additional measures if and when necessary.

Sensitivity to External Factors

The Company's results are sensitive to external factors of which the following are most influential:

  • Overall economic activity and particularly consumer confidence which affects demand for consumer durables. Our decentralized entrepreneurial organization manages these market risks as effectively as possible;
  • Prices for raw materials, in particular: aluminium, steel, fabric, synthetics and other oil based products. Changes in material prices for our window covering and architectural products are normally passed on in our product prices;
  • Exchange rates: rates of non US dollar currencies can affect the Company's results. Hunter Douglas' policy is to selectively hedge transactional earnings exposures and generally not to hedge balance sheet exposures.

Notes to the interim condensed consolidated financial statements

USD (millions, unless indicated otherwise)

1. Corporate information

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Hunter Douglas N.V. for the half year ended 30 June 2020 were authorized for issue in accordance with a resolution of the Directors on 5 August 2020.

Hunter Douglas N.V. has its statutory seat in Curaçao. Common shares are publicly traded at Amsterdam (HDG) and Frankfurt (HUD); the preferred shares are traded at Amsterdam (HUNDP).

The principal activities of the Group are described in note 3.

2. Basis of preparation and significant accounting policies

Basis of preparation

The consolidated financial statements of Hunter Douglas N.V. and all its subsidiaries have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting.

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements, and should be read in conjunction with the Group's annual financial statements at 31 December 2019. The same accounting policies are followed in the interim condensed consolidated financial statements as compared with the Group's annual financial statements at 31 December 2019.

3. Segment information

The Company has determined its reportable segments based on its internal reporting practices and on how the Company's management evaluates the performance of operations and allocates resources. The segments are organized and managed separately according to the nature of the products and services provided, with each segment representing a strategic business unit that offers different products and serves different markets. The window covering products segment relates to sales and manufacturing of window coverings for commercial and residential use. The architectural products segment relates to sales and manufacturing of architectural products mainly for commercial use. No operating segments have been aggregated to form the above reportable business segments. Management monitors the operating results of its business segments separately for the purpose of making decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment. Segment performance is evaluated based on net profit and is measured consistently with net profit in the consolidated financial statements. Transfer prices between business segments are set on an arm's length basis in a manner similar to transactions with third parties. The Group's geographical segments are determined by the location of the Group's assets and operations.
