Richemont's Sales +13% Before 1H Ends

11 september 2012

Richemont reported that sales rose 13 percent year on year at constant-exchange-rates during a five month period ending on August 31, 2012. The company noted that the weakening of the euro ‎against the dollar had a positive impact on group sales, Rapaport reports.‎
Sales in Europe rose 19 percent driven by steady retail purchases from tourist destinations in the ‎region. Sales in the Asia-Pacific region increased 12 percent, while sales in Japan rose 4 ‎percent. Sales in the Americas grew 6 percent, representing a slower rate of growth from the previous year partly due to the timing of exceptional sales in the comparative period.‎
Overall retail sales grew 15 percent reflecting a good performance in existing boutiques as well ‎as the opening of new boutiques, notably in the Asia-Pacific region. Wholesale sales increased ‎‎10 percent.‎
Sales at Richemont’s jewelry maisons division, which includes Cartier and Van Cleef and ‎Arpels, grew 12 percent while sales at the company's specialist watchmakers rose 16 percent. ‎
The company expects its operating profit for the first half to rise between 20 percent to 40 percent ‎when the full results are published on November 9.
