Trading update Q1 2017: Strong profitable branded growth

Q1 2017 highlights

  • Reported revenue growth of 15.2%

  • Autonomous growth own brands of 9.2%

  • EBITE increases to €19.0 million (EBITE margin of 11.5%)

CEO Statement

We had a good start in 2017 and have achieved strong autonomous growth of our own brands and a significant increase in EBITE, partly as a result of different A&P phasing compared to prior year. Many of our own brands grew at double digit-levels and overall, own brands have grown 9.2%. As communicated earlier, the share that Private Label and Distribution brands have of our business has reduced further, which has offset total growth in the quarter to an extent.

We are pleased with the performance of our newly acquired businesses and integration is proceeding as planned.

We are confident that 2017 will be yet another year of healthy, sustainable and profitable growth for Wessanen.
