FULL-YEAR FINANCIAL TARGETS CONFIRMED

 

Patrick BERARD, Chief Executive Officer, declared:

Rexel’s first-quarter performance was in line with our expectations.

Two elements are to be noted in our past quarter’s performance: For the first time in several quarters, we posted organic sales growth on a constant and same-day basis with a simultaneous improvement in profitability. In addition, our sales in the United States returned to growth after seven consecutive quarters of organic decline on a constant and same-day basis.

These results confirm that the measures we are taking to revitalize organic growth and improve profitability are starting to show results.

We confirm our financial targets for the full year, as announced on February 13.
