Sodexo spinoff Pluxee has set short-term and midterm targets ahead of its planned listing on Feb. 1.
The employee-benefits company, which is being carved out of the French food-and-catering giant, said on Wednesday that it aims to grow revenue by a percentage in the low double digits in fiscal 2024, and has the same goal for fiscal 2026.
Pluxee said it is targeting a stable recurring earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization margin in fiscal 2024, and aims for a margin of around 37% in fiscal 2026.
Between fiscal 2024 and fiscal 2026, the company is targeting a cash conversion rate above 70%.
Pluxee’s capital expenditures will be around 10% of revenue on average, with a significant focus on tech, if all goes according to plan, it said. It is aiming for a dividend policy of at least 25% of net profit from fiscal 2024.
The company also posted results for the first quarter of its fiscal 2024, with revenue reaching 266 million euros ($290.8 million) compared with EUR225 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2023. Pluxee saw organic growth of 20%, it said. Currency effects accounted for a 1.8% hit, Pluxee said.
Pluxee said its employ benefits business took in EUR224 million in revenue, up from EUR183 million a year ago, while other products and services resulted in EUR42 million—the same as the prior-year quarter.
The Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets has approved the prospectus for the listing of Pluxee’s ordinary shares on Euronext Paris, Sodexo said.
