We assess the results positively. The company is recording increased sales efficiency on most key markets, which allows it to mitigate the negative effect of growing personnel costs. Russia, Spain and other CEE segments recorded a significant results improvement.


The company sported a record-high growth of its network (275 locations) and wants to accelerate openings in 2017 (at least 200 openings via organic growth and M&A). We maintain our positive approach to the company.
