Solid progress on Programme NOW – preparing for brand re-launch

Financial highlights

  • As expected, Q1 2019 financials were weak and impacted by the commercial reset initiated as part of Programme NOW. The commercial reset includes fewer promotional activities (discounting) and reduced size of sell-in packages
  • Financial guidance for 2019 is unchanged
  • Total like-for-like sales-out growth (like-for-like) was -10% driven by lower traffic in physical stores. Like-for-like in the eSTORE was 7%. Organic growth ended at -12% reflecting the decrease of wholesalers’ inventory partly driven by the reduced sell-in packages
  • EBIT margin excluding restructuring costs was 22.5%. As expected, the EBIT margin was negatively impacted by operational deleverage (partly non-recurring)

Business highlights

During Q1 2019, Pandora progressed well with Programme NOW – Pandora’s business transformation programme that has comprehensive impact on the organisation, operations and culture. As a foundation for the upcoming important brand re-launch, Pandora initiated a commercial reset including fewer promotional activities, reduction of sell-in packages and improvement of inventory levels. The reduced sell-in packages and other wholesale inventory movements are estimated to have impacted organic growth by -5 percentage point in Q1 2019.

While Programme NOW will mainly support revenue growth from late 2019, Pandora is currently testing a number of commercial initiatives as preparation for the brand re-launch. The initiatives show encouraging results and include pilots with celebrity and influencer collaborations. The most important test is the initiation of significant marketing investments in key countries, which are launching in May 2019. The investments are expected to demonstrate the potential to drive profitable revenue growth. 

Programme NOW cost reduction initiatives tracked well in the first quarter. Pandora is rapidly changing the cost mindset and performance culture and has made significant progress in several areas including productivity improvements in Thailand.

Alexander Lacik, President and CEO of Pandora, says:

“I’m very excited to join Pandora. We have some very strong fundamentals in terms of a world-class supply chain, a strong product proposition as well as a deep reaching distribution network that gives consumers all around the globe quality access to Pandora. The brand as well as the company has reached a point of maturity and it is not without some serious challenges. The recently announced transformation programme NOW, which I fully support, is a great transition into the future.“

Anders Boyer, CFO of Pandora, says:

“Programme NOW is progressing rapidly and is creating a real transformation of our business, culture and organisation. As expected, the first quarter was characterised by continued weak like-for-like further burdened by our deliberate commercial reset. While the first quarter emphasises the need for our planned brand re-launch, it is encouraging to see that our initial commercial pilots and marketing tests to Reignite a Passion for Pandora show good results.”

En marokkansk cementordre er torsdag med til at løfte FLS-aktien, på en dag hvor der blæser blid medvind ind over Europa og det danske aktiemarked, efter Federal Reserve onsdag aften som ventet fastholdt sine toneangivende rentesatser.Det danske eliteindeks, C25, som stiger 0,2 pct. til 1144,46, er dog påvirket af, at Novo Nordisk sendes ned, hvilket kan være en af forklaringerne på, at der ikke e..
