Half-year results 2014
As the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, DKSH continued to grow in the first half-year of 2014 in a challenging market environment. Compared to last year, net sales increased by 6.7% at constant exchange rates to CHF 5.1 billion, while the operating profit before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose by 1.4% to CHF 144.8 million. Profit after tax (PAT) reached CHF 99.8 million.
In line with our strategy, the focus was on organic growth, through expanding business with existing clients, multiplying success stories from country to country and new business development. In addition, we further strengthened our business through two bolt-on acquisitions in the markets in Macao and in Spain and Portugal.
From today's perspective, we expect to achieve a 2014 result which is above the record year 2013. This assuming constant exchange rates.
