Alleroed, 2017-08-22 08:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The Board of Directors of Matas A/S today considered and adopted the interim report for the period 1 April – 30 June 2017.

   

Fewer trading days drive revenue lower – guidance maintained

  • Q1 2017/18 revenue was down by 3.2% year on year to DKK 820.9 million. Underlying (like-for-like) revenue was down by 2.9%.

  • The number of trading days was down by three to 72 relative to Q1 2016/17, which is estimated to have eroded revenue by around 2%. Revenue was also affected by poor spring weather driving seasonal sales down relative to Q1 2016/17. Customer traffic and the number of transactions fell in the first quarter of the year, while the average basket size developed positively with a growth rate of 6.6%.      

  • High-End Beauty sales showed a very satisfactory performance, more than offsetting the negative impact of a larger number of competing outlets relative to the same period of last year, which affected Mass Beauty sales in particular. Overall Beauty sales were slightly ahead.

  • Q1 2017/18 gross profit was DKK 379.1 million, taking the gross margin to 46.2%, a 1.1 percentage point decline compared with 47.3% in Q1 2016/17.

  • Total costs declined compared with the year-earlier period, reflecting, among other things, the cost reduction programme completed towards the end of financial year 2016/17.

  • Results of operations for Q1 fell short of our ambitions. Expecting an improved performance in the rest of the financial year, we confirm our full-year sales and profit forecasts.

  • EBITA was DKK 119.0 million in Q1 2017/18, equivalent to an EBITA margin of 14.5%, against 16.1% in the year-earlier period. The fall in EBITA margin was driven down by a lower gross margin.

  • Q1 profit after tax was DKK 74.0 million, and Adjusted profit after tax net of amortisation not related to software was DKK 88.9 million, compared with DKK 84.6 million and DKK 99.4 million, respectively, in Q1 2016/17.

Pandora/ABG: Mindre sats på kursfald hos hedgefond luner aktiekursen

22-11-2017 15:47:15
Pandora har haft et hårdt 2017 på aktiemarkedet, hvilket er blevet forstærket af, at en håndfuld store investeringsselskaber har shortet aktien og dermed satset på kursfald.Derfor er det positivt for aktiekursen, at den amerikanske hedgefond Maverick Capital har mindsket sin shortposition til 0,97 pct. af aktierne fra tidligere 1,31 pct.- Det er den første større shortreduktion, vi har set gennem ..
