Future outlook 2012 Q3

Interim report 1-9/2012 (Published on 24 October 2012)

Estimates of the future outlook for the Kesko Group's net sales and operating profit excluding non-recurring items are given for the 12 months following the reporting period (10/2012-9/2013) in comparison with the 12 months preceding the reporting period (10/2011-9/2012).

Resulting from the problems of European national economies, the outlook for the general economic situation is characterised by significant uncertainty. In addition, tightening taxation and cuts in public finances are estimated to weaken the growth in the trading sector.

The market of the grocery trade is expected to remain stable. Market development in the home and speciality goods trade, the building and home improvement trade and the car and machinery trade is expected to weaken.

The Kesko Group's net sales are expected to grow during the next twelve months. As a result of measures taken to enhance sales and purchasing operations as well as cost savings to be implemented, the operating profit excluding non-recurring items for the next twelve months is expected to exceed the operating profit excluding non-recurring items for the preceding twelve months. Capital expenditure is expected to be lower compared to the capital expenditure for the preceding twelve months.
