Fielmann: Press releases

First half year: preliminary figures

According to initial estimates, Fielmann increased its unit sales, sales revenue and profit in the first half of 2011. The market leader sold around 3.3 million pairs of glasses in the first half of the year (previous year: 3.1 million), and achieved external sales of approximately EUR 614 million (previous year: EUR 573.7 million) and consolidated sales of about EUR 522 million (previous year: EUR 487.4 million). In the first six months of the year we achieved a pre-tax profit of around EUR 86 million (previous year: EUR 78.8 million). As at 30 June, Fielmann operates 656 branches in Germany and abroad (previous year: 649).

Fielmann is confident that it can expand its market position. Consumers buy from companies that guarantee high quality at fair prices, and in the optical industry, that means Fielmann. Consumer-friendly services lead to a high level of customer satisfaction and are essential to long-term growth.
