Future outlook 2013 Q1

Interim report 1-3/2013 (Published on 25 April 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 (4/2013-3/2014) in comparison with the 12 months preceding the reporting period (4/2012-3/2013).

Resulting from the problems of European national economies, the future prospects for the general economic situation and consumer demand continue to be characterised by significant uncertainty. In consequence of weakened employment and consumers' purchasing power, the growth prospects for the trading sector have deteriorated.

In the Finnish grocery trade, the market is expected to remain stable. 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.

The Kesko Group's net sales for the next twelve months are expected to match the level of the preceding twelve months. As a result of measures taken to enhance business operations and cost savings, 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, unless the overall consumer demand significantly weakens. Capital expenditure is expected to be lower compared to the capital expenditure for the preceding twelve months.
