Lower sales in France weigh on Kingfisher's growth

KGF

LONDON (Reuters) - British home improvement retailer Kingfisher missed forecasts for sales growth in its latest quarter, held back by the weak performance of its French businesses. Shares in the group were down 2.5% at 0818 GMT on Wednesday, extending year-on-year losses to 19%, after it said like-for-like sales rose 0.8% in the three months to April 30, its fiscal first quarter - below analysts' consensus forecast for growth of about 1.6%. Kingfisher, whose main businesses are B&Q and Screwfix in Britain and Castorama and Brico Depot in France and elsewhere, is in the fourth year of a five-year programme that was designed to boost earnings. However, profits went backwards in its 2018-19 year and the group said in March it would part company with Véronique Laury, its CEO since 2014. "We think France sales have been affected by continued range disruption and as the digital offer is taking time to ramp up," said RBC Europe analyst Richard Chamberlain, who has an "underperform" rating on the stock.

Kingfisher sees sales rebound thanks to warmer weather

KGF

B&Q owner Kingfisher said the DIY chain has enjoyed a sales bounceback thanks to warm spring weather after Britain basked in a sun-soaked Easter weekend. Kingfisher said this year’s warmer weather helped boost sales by around 6%, although this was offset by a hit of about 2% as it ended some showroom installation services. Comparable store sales rose 4.2% across its other international chains, leaving overall group sales up 0.8%. The group’s results showed B&Q sales dropped 3% on a like-for-like basis over the year, while Screwfix remained the star performer with a 4.1% rise in comparable sales. But, in spite of the profits and sales woes, Kingfisher’s annual report this month showed Ms Laury’s total pay package swelled 11% to £1.8 million thanks to a hefty salary hike and bonus awards.
