“In 2021, Michelin delivered very good results in extremely difficult conditions, while maintaining the priority to protect its employees,” said Michelin managing chairman, Florent Menegaux.

“I would like to warmly thank all our employees who, every day, are successfully meeting the many challenges we face. In line with our drive to share the value created by our Group, we will reward their dedication in these exceptional circumstances, in particular through a substantial increase in variable compensation for the year.

“With these 2021 results, our Group has once again demonstrated its strength and resilience. We are confidently looking forward to the continued deployment of our Michelin in Motion strategy.”
