Zinzino AB (PUBL): Interim Report for the third Quarter 2018

Strong growth in combination with a good profitability driven by positive development in Central Europe.

Launch of a new digital tool during the third quarter, in combination with Zinzino’s effort of engaging distributors in different markets resulted in a 16% growth in sales compared to the same period last year. The Nordic countries accounted for 70% of the turnover but Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Rumania and Hungary continue to increase strongly during the third quarter. In addition to investing in the new digital sales tools Zinzino has expanded the activities in Hungary and Rumania for handling the fast- growing customer mass in the region. During the third quarter Zinzino has also launched a Brand book with the purpose to increase awareness of Zinzino’s brand and company.

” We look back on a more overall positive quarter that is in line with our goals. We are satisfied with a 16% growth in combination with a high profitability – which meets our expectations” writes Dag Bergheim Pettersen, CEO, in his comments on the Interim Report.
