AMSTERDAM, June 13, 2024 – Today at the first Stellantis Investor Day at 8:00 a.m. EDT / 2:00 p.m. CEST in Auburn Hills, Michigan, U.S., CEO Carlos Tavares will outline the Company’s nine key strategic differentiators that the Company is leveraging to unlock value and address the disruption and reinvention of the auto industry worldwide.

Stellantis management confirms its 2024 financial guidance and capital return plan:

  • Double-digit Adjusted Operating Income (AOI) margin and positive industrial free cash flows.
  • Capital Return: Delivering ≥€7.7 billion in dividends and buybacks in 2024.

CFO Natalie Knight will reiterate more specific color on first and second-half expectations within the 2024 period:

  • H1 outlook of 10-11% AOI margin, with industrial free cash flows visibly below the prior year period.
  • Significant product launches, cost initiatives and anticipated improvement in working capital together support H2 sequential improvement opportunity in AOI and industrial free cash flow.

  • Setting target liquidity levels of 25-30% of revenues for the medium-term, shifting focus to capital efficiency and supporting strong shareholder returns.
