Future outlook 2012 Q4

Financial statements release 2012 (Published on 5 February 2013)

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 (1/2013-12/2013) in comparison with the 12 months preceding the reporting period (1/2012-12/2012).

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

In the Finnish grocery trade, the market is expected to remain steady. As a result of the weakened economic situation, the markets for the home and speciality goods trade, the building and home improvement trade and the car and machinery trade in Finland are expected to fall. In Russia, the market development in both the building and home improvement trade and the grocery trade is expected to be positive.

The Kesko Group's net sales for 2013 are expected to match the level of the previous year. As a result of measures taken to enhance business operations and cost savings, the operating profit excluding non-recurring items for 2013 is expected to exceed the operating profit excluding non-recurring items for 2012, unless the overall consumer demand significantly weakens. The capital expenditure for 2013 is expected to be lower compared to the capital expenditure for the previous year.
