Future outlook Q3/2020

Interim report Q3/2020, published on 29 October 2020


Outlook for Kesko Group's continuing operations is given for year 2020, in comparison with year 2019.

Kesko specifies its profit guidance for 2020. The company now estimates that the comparable operating profit for its continuing operations will be in the range of €530-570 million in 2020. Before, the company estimated that the comparable operating profit for continuing operations would be in the range of €510-570 million.

Retail sales in K-food stores have remained strong in the grocery trade. In the building and technical trade, sales remain at a good level in both B2B and B2C trade. The car trade has recovered well from the decline in sales in H1. At the same time, Kesko has managed to improve cost efficiency.

Expectations for the remainder of the year are good in the grocery trade and building and technical trade with, for example, household consumption more focused on domestic purchases than previously estimated.

The outlook is based on the epidemic situation remaining under control in Kesko’s operating countries. However, concerns over the expansion of the Covid-19 epidemic and general economic weakening remain high. A worsened epidemic situation would have a negative impact on Kesko’s businesses and, for example, Christmas sales.
