Preliminary figures for business development in 2016

According to preliminary estimates, Fielmann increased unit sales in the second quarter of 2016 by 6 per cent to 2 million pairs of glasses (previous year: 1.9 million pairs of glasses), while external sales grew by nearly 5 per cent to € 399 million (previous year: € 381.3 million) and consolidated sales rose by around 5 per cent to more than € 343 million (previous year: € 327.2 million). From April to June, pre-tax profit was up by 15 per cent to € 62 million (previous year: € 53.5 million).

In the first half of the current financial year, Fielmann increased unit sales to 3.9 million pairs of glasses (previous year: 3.8 million pairs of glasses), with external sales rising to more than € 770 million (previous year: € 754.6 million) and consolidated sales up to approximately € 660 million (previous year: € 644.3 million). At € 116 million, pre-tax profit is expected to be on a par with last year’s figures.

Fielmann is confident that we will be able to expand our market position. Consumers buy from companies that guarantee high quality at reasonable prices, and in the optical industry, this means Fielmann.
