Fielmann: Press releases

H1 2009: preliminary figures
Unit sales up by 3.2 per cent, sales revenue by 2.8 per cent

In the first half of 2009, Fielmann increased both unit sales and sales revenue, according to initial estimates. The market leader sold 3.1 million pairs of glasses (+3.2 per cent), and achieved external sales of around 547 million (+2.8 per cent) and consolidated sales of approximately 464 million (+2.8 per cent). In the first six months of the year, advertising expenditure increased by 7 million and the company generated a pre-tax profit of around 72 million (previous year: 80 million). By the end of June, Fielmann had opened 12 branches (total: 631).

Fielmann is confident that it will improve its market position. In difficult economic times, consumers buy from companies that offer them high quality at favourable prices: in the optical industry, that company is Fielmann.
