COVID-19更新

365bet国际娱乐城 ABB一直在监视COVID-19(新型冠状病毒)周围的大流行情况。员工,客户和合作伙伴的健康与安全仍然是公司的重中之重,我们正在努力评估和减轻任何风险。

2020年2月5日发布的指南不包括因冠状病毒引起的影响,当时的影响主要限于中国。随后,由于疫情的爆发,我们的交易条件有所下降,这进一步受到了石油价格疲软的影响。

2月份,在政府主导的广泛努力下,中国的局势已趋于稳定,ABB在上海,北京和厦门的三个主要生产中心的运营已基本恢复正常。尽管我们第二大市场中国的客户需求减弱也将影响第一季度业绩,但我们的中国业务最近一直在改善。同时,COVID-19在3月份迅速扩散到西半球,导致政府和客户采取了围堵措施,这些措施对全球产生了重大的经济影响。

2020年第一季度的影响

尽管尚无法确定COVID-19对ABB第一季度业绩的确切影响,但ABB预计其所有业务的收入将比一年前下降,而订单的影响则较小。机器人与离散自动化业务已经面临着来自汽车行业的巨大终端市场阻力,但仍面临挑战,第一季度的订单和收入预计都将同比下降超过20%。

预计ABB所有业务的经营性EBITA利润率都将下降,这是受到销量下降的影响,但自助服务会部分抵消这一收益。自助计划得到了ABB实施ABB操作系统(ABB-OS)框架的帮助。同时,该公司正在大力加强缓解措施,并积极降低所有不必要的成本,ABB的所有业务都严格致力于为客户提供服务,同时维持现金流。

2020年展望

365bet国际娱乐城 我们的每个业务部门都在密切监视爆发的当前和潜在影响。目前,ABB的大多数生产设施仍处于全部或部分运营状态,对供应链的影响微乎其微。但是,疫情预计将继续在全球范围内产生影响,有可能在生产现场造成中断,并进一步减少产品需求,项目和服务活动。

除了影响我们所有业务的短周期不利因素外,我们预计项目业务将因油气资本支出前景疲弱以及游轮活动减少而受到影响。相比之下,运输项目看起来更具弹性,并且某些高增长领域(例如数据中心)的前景依然乐观。对于专业销售和服务工程师的跨境旅行限制限制了系统和服务活动。

ABB正在加速和扩大其缓解措施,在看起来困难的第二季度之前,重点是调整产能以满足减少的需求。

考虑到持续的不确定性,包括最近的石油价格下跌,ABB不再提供2020年全年的财务指导。

ABB继续致力于实现转型里程碑,包括剥离电网,目标是在第二季度末完成。

尽管存在短期中断,但ABB对其业务和运营模式的潜在弹性充满信心,并且其现有的财务框架已充分满足了其短期流动性需求。

365bet国际娱乐城 ABB首席执行官比约恩·罗森格伦(BjörnRosengren)表示:“我想借此机会在特殊时期感谢整个ABB团队团结一致并以最高的专业水平处理这种全球性流行病。” “目前,所有利益相关者(首先是员工)的健康和安全仍然是我们的头等大事,同时我们也将尽最大努力确保业务连续性。我们会为任何情况做好准备,并将采取强有力的措施来减轻对客户,股东和员工的影响。”

365bet国际娱乐城 “此外,ABB董事会和执行委员会已决定在危机期间自愿立即将董事会薪酬和薪金削减10%,以期将这种强烈的团结信号扩展到其他高级管理层在公司内部。为了整个ABB和整个社会,我们必须团结一致。通过补偿和减薪节省下来的钱将由ABB捐赠,用于抗击冠状病毒危机的努力。”首席执行官说。

“自从今年早些时候加入ABB以来,我进行了许多首次会面之后,我对公司及其员工的印象非常积极。罗森格伦补充说,ABB是一家强大的公司,具有巨大的精神,正确的产品和技术,可以驱动未来世界的积极和可持续发展。

ABB is constantly monitoring the pandemic situation around COVID-19 (novel coronavirus). The health and safety of its employees, customers and partners remains the company’s number one priority and we are working hard to assess and mitigate any risks.

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城Guidance issued on February 5, 2020, did not include impacts due to the coronavirus, the effects of which were mainly limited to China at that time. We have subsequently experienced a decline in trading conditions due to the outbreak, further impacted by a weakening oil price.

\r\n

The situation in China has stabilized following extensive government-led efforts in February and operations at ABB’s three main production hubs of Shanghai, Beijing and Xiamen have largely returned to normal. While weakened customer demand in China, our second largest market, will also impact the first quarter results, our China business has been improving recently. At the same time, COVID-19 has spread rapidly to the western hemisphere in March, resulting in governments and customers adopting containment measures that have material economic consequences across the globe.

\r\n

Q1 2020 impact

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城Although it is not yet possible to determine the exact impact of COVID-19 on ABB’s first quarter results, ABB expects revenues to decline in all its businesses relative to a year ago, while orders are somewhat less impacted. The Robotics & Discrete Automation business, which was already facing significant end-market headwinds from the automotive sector, remains challenged, with first quarter orders and revenues both expected to decline by more than 20 percent year-on-year.

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城Operational EBITA margins are also expected to decline in all ABB’s businesses, burdened by lower volumes, partly offset by self-help efforts. Self-help initiatives are aided by the framework ABB already has in place to implement ABB’s Operating System (ABB-OS). At the same time, the company is significantly intensifying mitigation measures and actively reducing all non-essential costs, and all of ABB’s businesses are rigorously focused on serving their customers while sustaining cash flow.

\r\n

2020 outlook

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城Each of our businesses are closely monitoring current and potential effects of the outbreak. Currently, the majority of ABB’s production facilities remain fully or partly operational and supply chain impacts have been minimal. However, the outbreak is expected to continue to have an impact globally, potentially creating disruption across production sites and further curtailing product demand, project and service activity.

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城In addition to short-cycle headwinds impacting all our businesses, we expect project business to be dampened by the weaker outlook for oil and gas capital expenditures and a fall-off in cruise ship activity. By contrast, transport projects look more resilient and the outlook for select high growth areas, such as data centers, remains robust. Systems and service activity is curtailed by restrictions to cross-border travel for specialized sales and service engineers.

\r\n

ABB is accelerating and extending its mitigation measures ahead of what looks set to be a difficult second quarter, with a focus on adjusting capacity to meet reduced demand.

\r\n

365bet国际娱乐城Given continued uncertainty, including the recent oil price decline, ABB is no longer providing financial guidance for full year 2020.

\r\n

ABB continues to work toward the delivery of transformation milestones, including the divestment of Power Grids which is targeted for completion at the end of the second quarter.

\r\n

Despite short-term disruptions, ABB is confident in the underlying resilience of its businesses and operating model, and that its short-term liquidity needs are well covered by the financial framework it has in place.

\r\n

“I would like to take this opportunity during these extraordinary times to thank the whole ABB team for sticking together and handling this global pandemic with the highest level of professionalism,” said ABB CEO Björn Rosengren. “The health and safety of all stakeholders, above all our employees, remains our number one priority at this moment in time, while we also try our utmost to secure business continuity. We remain prepared for any scenario and will take strong action to mitigate the impact for our customers, shareholders and employees.”

\r\n

“Furthermore, the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of ABB have decided to voluntarily take an immediate 10 percent reduction in board compensation and salary for the duration of the crisis, with the view to extend this strong sign of solidarity to other senior management levels within the company. We must stay strong together for the whole of ABB and for our society. The money saved through the compensation and salary reductions will be donated by ABB towards efforts aimed at fighting the impacts of the Coronavirus crisis” said the CEO.

\r\n

“After many of my first meetings since joining ABB earlier this year, my impressions of the company and its people are very positive. ABB is a strong company, with a tremendous spirit and the right products and technology to drive the positive and sustainable development of the world in the future,” Rosengren added.

\r\n

Important notice about forward-looking information

\r\n

This press release includes forward-looking information and statements concerning the outlook for our business. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the factors that may affect our future performance, including the future impact of the coronavirus, global economic conditions, and the economic conditions of the regions and industries that are major markets for ABB. These expectations, estimates and projections are generally identifiable by statements containing words such as “anticipates”, “expects,” “believes,” “estimates,” “plans”, “targets” or similar expressions. However, there are numerous risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking information and statements made in this press release and which could affect our ability to achieve any or all of our stated targets. Many of the factors that could cause such differences are identified and discussed from time to time in ABB Ltd’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Reports on Form 20-F. Although ABB Ltd believes that its expectations reflected in any such forward-looking statement are based upon reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that those expectations will be achieved.
