Celesio AG Analyst Notes
On July 31, 2014, Celesio AG (Celesio) announced its H1 2014 financial results. The Company said that the period under review was characterized by intense competition in Germany, which coupled with unfavorable performance in Brazil, led its adjusted EBIT down by 1.7% YoY to €199.1 million in H1 2014. EBIT before adjustments showed a steep decline of 65.3% YoY at €70.4 million, primarily due to impairment loss on the goodwill of the Brazilian activities. Celesio's revenue in H1 2014 increased 1.8% YoY to €10.7 billion as strong performance in UK and Norway offset the continued decline in its revenue from France and Belgium. "All in all, despite strong headwinds, Celesio maintained its course well in the first half of 2014. We expect this trend to continue for the rest of the year," said Marc Owen, new Chairman of the Management Board of Celesio.
