Feature of the month
DKSH financial figures released
The financial figures for the business year 2012 were released on March 12, together with our first Annual Report as a publicly listed company. The results were excellent, with our performance exceeding our results from 2011.
In 2012, DKSH achieved an operating profit of CHF 277.3 million, an increase of 16.7% compared to the prior year. Profit after tax grew by 21.3% to CHF 184.7 million (excluding extraordinary gain of CHF 24.7 million from the divestment of OLIC). Net sales increased by 20.4% (CHF +1.5 billion) to CHF 8.8 billion, by far exceeding the 8.3% growth rate of DKSH's addressable Market Expansion Services industry.
This success again clearly demonstrates the resilience of our business model and reaffirms our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth – expanding existing partnerships, multiplying success stories from country to country and strategic bolt-on acquisitions.
