STRONG REVENUE GROWTH IN JULY & AUGUST 2021 DRIVEN BY DOMESTIC DEMAND & POSITIVE PRICING IMPACT

UPDATED OUTLOOK FOR FY 2021:

SIGNIFICANT REVENUE GROWTH

CORPORATE EBITDA1 ABOVE €110M

CORPORATE NET DEBT IN THE RANGE ANNOUNCED IN H1 2021

PARIS, September 20, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

Europcar Mobility Group (Paris:EUCAR):

CURRENT TRADING: STRONG PERFORMANCE IN JULY & AUGUST 2021

  • A strong rebound in July & August 2021: revenue up +45% to €538m vs same period in 2020, but still -30% vs 2019

  • Top-line driven by domestic markets, highlighting a sharp rebound in the US and Southern Europe

  • Performance over the first 2 months of Q3 2021 benefiting from both higher volumes and strong RPD

OUTLOOK FOR FY 2021

  • Good momentum in July & August raised Group’s confidence for the FY 2021 despite an expected still limited long-haul traffic, an environment that should remain volatile depending on travel restrictions, the impact of the "Delta / Mu variants" and ongoing shortage of semiconductors

  • The Group re-iterates its ambition to deliver significant revenue growth for the FY2021 vs 2020

  • Corporate EBITDA1 in 2021: above €110m (compared to -€276m in 2020 and €278m in 20192)

  • Corporate net debt: in the €300m-350m range announced in H1 2021 (on 28 July 2021), including transformative capex as previously communicated3

  • The Group continues to run a strict cost control policy and focus on cash preservation

FY 2022 AND 2023: KEY MID-TERM TRAJECTORY

  • Considering the uncertain business environment related to the Covid pandemic and the semiconductor shortage development, outlook for FY 2022 and 2023 still remains broadly in line with the one communicated in the Group’s press release dated 26 November 20204
