HEIDELBERG continues growth, with significant improvement in sales and result for first half-year

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 11 novembre 2022

Partly due to the exchange rate situation, for instance, sales climbed to EUR590 million in the second quarter (previous year: EUR542 million). At EUR1,120 million, sales for the first half-year are around 14 percent up on the previous year. The Packaging Solutions segment enjoyed particularly strong growth, from a modest EUR415 million in the previous year to EUR535 million. Due to the higher sales, EBITDA improved to EUR68 million in the second quarter. This far exceeded the previous year’s figure of EUR38 million, which was adjusted for non-recurring income (unadjusted figure: EUR60 million). A better price quality of sales that countered the substantial increases in the costs of raw materials and intermediate products also contributed to the higher EBITDA, which reached EUR104 million for the half-year (previous year’s (unadjusted) figure: EUR75 million). The net result after taxes after six months climbed from EUR13 million to EUR 44 million, increasing from EUR 27 million to EUR 39 million in the second quarter. Just six months into the year, this exceeds the level for the whole of the previous year. In the second quarter, incoming orders also continued rising, to some EUR622 million (up 5 percent). This was supported by currency effects, and by high demand from Central Europe and North America. The full report for the second quarter of 2022/23 , image material, and further information about the company are available in the Investor Relations ( berg/investor_relations/overview_1.jsp)

Global Car Sales Revenues to Plunge by $200B in 2022

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 8 ottobre 2022

Car sales in 2022 have proved just as challenging as in 2021, as supply chain bottlenecks and record inflation deepen automakers’ uphill battle. According to data presented by, with rising costs and low inventory plaguing the industry, global car sales revenues are expected to plunge by $200bn this year. The global automotive industry has had a rough three years, with multiple factors contributing to the low stock and high prices the car buyers are now facing. First, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted production lines and changed consumer behavior. But the 2022 challenges were just as tough. Car sales in Europe have been falling for months as the war in Ukraine further cripples supply chains and spurs record inflation that risks undermining demand once shortages ease. The US car buyers also can’t catch a break, as rising costs and low inventory have made it impossible to bring home a new car these days. As a result, global car sales revenues dipped below 2014 levels. According to a Statista survey, last year, the global automotive industry generated $2.08trn from car sales, a significant recovery from $1.67trn in 2020, but still below pre-COVID-19 revenues. However, Statista expects revenues to drop by 9% YoY to $1.89trn in 2022 and remain around that value next year. This steep revenue drop brought the entire market eight years back, below 2014 levels, when the automotive industry made roughly $1.99trn from car sales. Although the demand for new cars remains high, automakers can’t keep up. As a result, dealerships have significantly marked up any models in stock, bringing them record-high profits recently. Nevertheless, the total car unit sales are at their lowest point in years. Statista expects global care sales to hit 67.3 million this year, 6.5 million units less than in 2021, and 2.6 million below 2013 sales figures. Mini cars and full-size vans will witness the biggest sales drop, with unit sales falling by 12% and 10% this year. All other market segments are expected to see around an 8% drop. According to Statista data, Toyota remains the leading automaker globally, with a 9.6% sales share in 2022. Despite facing production stoppages due to war in Ukraine and supply chain bottlenecks, Volkswagen AG remained the second-largest carmaker with a 7.2% market share this year. Ford follows with a 7.1% share, respectively.The full story and statistics can be found here:

Peaks Breaks Through GEICO’s 17 Millionth Policy Sales Goal

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 28 aprile 2019

The odds of GEICO selling its 17 millionth policy were far better than the one in 302,575,350 shot of winning the Mega Millions lottery. Even so, when Iowa City GEICO sales associate Ty’Shaye Peaks learned she had sold GEICO’s record-breaking 17 millionth policy, she was shocked. “It was like hitting the lottery, everyone in the company has been ecstatic about the sale, and knowing that I contributed to such a milestone has been overwhelming.” Peaks recently sold the policy during a conversation with a caller from Laredo, Texas. “She told me that she had compared all the options and chose to go with GEICO, not only because of the savings but because our process was quick and easy,” Peaks recalled.
“The entire Iowa office is excited about the 17 millionth policy being sold by one of our own,” said Iowa sales/service director Pete Rizzo. “Not only is this an accomplishment for Iowa, but also for all of GEICO. I’m looking forward to the great growth the company has ahead.”Peaks joined GEICO two years ago, starting just months before the company’s 16 millionth policy was sold. Complete customer satisfaction is the goal Peaks set for herself, one that GEICO associates strive to achieve each day. The role Peaks has played in GEICO history has served to reinforce that mission.“I love being a part of the sales team. Every day, we are letting customers know about all the good things about GEICO, and they are listening,” she said. “I’m excited about the opportunities that GEICO has for me in the future.”

Christie’s: The Collector London Sales

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 ottobre 2018

London London – Christie’s will present the autumn edition of The Collector sales on 13 and 14 November in London; an array of decorative arts and furniture ranging across: English Furniture, Clocks & Works of Art; European Furniture, Works of Art & Ceramics, and Silver & 19th Century Furniture, Sculpture & Works of Art.In celebration of the diverse styles and origins of the pieces within the auctions, Christie’s has partnered with avid collector and aesthete Mark-Francis Vandelli, a television personality known for his eccentric and exacting taste, to curate his selection of the sales within The Collector preview, open to the public from 9 to 12 November at the London King Street Galleries.Bringing theatricality and flair to Christie’s sale rooms, Mark-Francis has designed a series of film set-style vignettes; a Manhattan penthouse, a Parisian hôtel particulier and a Roman palazzo. Selected not only in recognition of their status as centres of cultural enlightenment, the recreation of interiors from the three iconic cities reflect the formative locations in which Mark-Francis developed his own aesthetic and appreciation for decorative arts.Orlando Rock, Christie’s UK Chairman and Co-Chairman of Decorative Arts: “Mark-Francis has an eye for the exquisite – and a natural flair that allows him to pick and choose objects across genres, freeing them from their historical shackles of period and place to combine them with panache and style. Mark-Francis’s playfulness and sense of fun dominate in creating very personal, liveable and fresh interiors that are characteristically international. His lifelong love affair with works of art began with auction viewings throughout his childhood – and as a regular visitor to Christie’s and admirer of ‘The Collector’ auctions of decorative arts, we were thrilled when Mark-Francis agreed to work with us to curate three innovative rooms which are representative of the diverse range of styles and periods of objects available in this series of sales. We look forward to welcoming the public to view and enjoy Mark-Francis’s creations in person during the pre-sale exhibition from 9 to 12 November.” Mark-Francis Vandelli: “This collaboration with Christie’s presented a unique opportunity for me to do something entirely different. By creating a series of imposing film sets based on three different cities, we are able to present typically 18th and 19th century works against diverse and unexpected backdrops. These playful, temporary structures allude to the many chapters in these decorative objects’ lives, which will often see them travelling across cultures and continents to new homes, adopted and interpreted each time in a new fashion.”

Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 2.3 percent on sales of 199,157 vehicles compared to 194,604 sold in the first eight months of 2017.“Such a contrast from last August when we were sending relief to Texas and Louisiana as they struggled in the aftermath of the hurricane. This time, a calmer August was again a strong month for our X models which accounted for almost 54% of BMW sales in the U.S.,” said Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “With more than 100,000 X models sold in the first eight months of the year we expect the BMW Sports Activity Vehicles to continue leading the way, especially once the all-new, fourth generation X5 goes on sale later this fall.” BMW’s lineup of Sports Activity Vehicles accounted for 53.6 percent of BMW brand sales in August 2018. For the fifth consecutive month, the BMW X3 was the top-selling BMW model in the U.S.

Online Sales to Drive Half of Retail Growth in Western Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 agosto 2018

Over the next five years, online sales will drive almost half of retail growth in Western Europe. Italy and Spain will see the fastest online sales growth.By 2023, 21% of non-grocery retail sales will be online, up from 13% in 2017. Grocery will be one of the fastest-growing online retail categories.This promising outlook emerges from a new forecast released today by Forrester. The analysis details growth for 22 product categories across 17 countries in Western Europe, with historical online category sales going back to 2002.“We are seeing an increasing consumer confidence that is driving retail sales growth,” says Principal Analyst Michael O’Grady. “In 2017, the European Union economy grew at its fastest pace in a decade. Western European retail sales will grow by 2.8% in 2018. In addition to the consumer confidence, employment rates haven’t been seen so high since the 2008 banking crisis. As expected, online is playing an ever-increasing role in the mix.”Online-only retailers grew their sales faster than the online retail market as they drive much of their sales from marketplaces.“Marketplaces help consumers to research and buy products but also provide payment and fulfilment services to retailers to allow them to expand both domestically and internationally,” explains Mr O’Grady. “Amazon continues to grow faster that the online retail markets across much of Western Europe. We are also seeing AliExpress grow its presence in Europe, most notably in Spain and Italy.”
Forrester expects that more and more retailers will partner with and sell through marketplaces in the future as the boundaries between physical retail stores and marketplaces start to blur.
Meanwhile, many brick-and-mortar retailers, notably in the UK, saw online sales grow and offline sales contract. One-third of UK non-grocery retailing will be online by 2023.To talk to our analysts to understand where the retail market is going, and which strategies companies should put in place to drive revenue growth, please contact Chiara Carella, Public Relations Europe,
