Dominant watch group Swatch reports US$820m earnings, predicts strong second half (07-23 17:09)
The world's biggest watch-making group Swatch reported that net profit growth slowed in the first half of the year, but still beat analysts' expectations. Swatch has more than 20 watch and jewelry brands including Omega, Breguet, Longines, Rado, Blancpain, Glashiütte Original, Jaquet Droz, Léon Hatot, Tiffany & Co, Tissot, Calvin Klein watches and jewelry, Balmain, Certina, Mido, Hamilton, Swatch, Flik Flak (children’s watches), Endura and Tourbillon. Net profit amounted to 768 million Swiss francs (US$820 million) during the first six months of the year, up 6.1 percent. Swatch Group sales meanwhile, ticked in 8.7 percent higher at 4.1 billion Swiss francs, the company said today. Earnings were slightly higher than the 733 million francs expected by analysts polled by the AWP financial agency, while the sales were in line with expectations. In recent years, the Biel-based group has seen business balloon on a seemingly insatiable appetite by Chinese consumers for luxury watches, but company chief Nick Hayek warned in March that the massive growth could not last. Over the last six months, Swiss watch exports to China have slowed, in part owing to a recent ban on ads for extravagant gifts in an anti-corruption push. Swatch said the outlook for the remainder of the year remained “very promising,'' stressing that “a strong second half-year is expected.'' The company said today that it aims to launch a number of new products in coming months and that it would continue to work to integrate recently purchased US jeweler and watchmaker Harry Winston. Following the announcement, the price of shares in Swatch Group gained by 1.89 percent to 539.50 Swiss francs in early trading, well ahead of the Swiss stock exchange's main index, which dipped 0.20 percent.     Other Business breaking news: Macau casino heavyweight SJM brings Versace-branded luxury hotel to gambling hub (08-20 20:21) HK consumer prices leap 6.9pc in July (08-20 16:59) Jakarta stocks hammered (08-20 16:44) Glencore Xstrata knocks US$7.6b off mining assets, reports US$8.9b loss (08-20 16:42) European markets open lower (08-20 15:58) BHP Billiton earnings plunge 29.5pc to US$10.8b (08-20 14:46) NZ Prime Minister puts spin on nitrate contamination (08-20 14:45) Nikkei dives 2.6pc at close (08-20 14:37) Sri Lanka court slaps further ban on Fonterra over defiant promotional activities (08-20 13:58) Hang Seng down by break (08-20 12:44) More breaking news >>
