Oriola-KD Corporation published the interim report 1 January - 31 March 2016 on Friday, 22 April 2016 at 8.30 a.m.
President and CEO Eero Hautaniemi's comments regarding the interim report:
The markets both in Finland and Sweden grew at healthy pace. In Consumer business our growth continued to be slightly below market, but the sales mix developed favorably supporting the profitability despite the costs related to new pharmacy openings in Sweden and start-up costs in Finland. Services performed well helped by volume growth and efficiency improvement. In Healthcare the Svensk Dos acquisition was successfully closed and integration started according to the plan. In general, the year started with a solid performance across the board.
