Scandinavia is no longer the best growing region in the Dixons Carphone group.
Sales for Elkjøp Group were only up 1 percent like-for-like last quarter.
In August, the merge between Dixons and Carphone warehouse was a fact.
Now comes the first trading statement containing sales from May to July, ending 2 August.
It’s considered as a good start – and the help from the World Cup in football improved the UK performance to reach a 4 percent increase in sales. Best performer was Greece with 6 percent up. The Elkjøp Group in the Nordics had a 1 percent increase. Alla numbers are like-for-like.
”In the Nordics we have had a solid start across the board against strong comparatives last year and the business seems set fair for a good year in terms of its competitive position”, says Dixons Carphone Group CEO Sebastian James.
