Dixons Carphone like-for-like sales up 5%

Tuesday 26 January 2016 | 08:00 CET | News
Dixons Carphone reported a strong finish to 2015, with like-for-like revenues up 5 percent year-on-year in the 10 weeks ended 9 January 2016. Sales in the UK & Ireland rose 5 percent, its Nordic markets grew by 3 percent, and Southern Europe was up 9 percent. As a result, the retailer expected to report headline pretax profit for the year of GBP 440-450 million, slightly ahead of the market consensus. In addition to the benefits of the Dixons and Cartphone Warehouse merger, the company said it was winning market share in the UK mobile market and benefited from a strong Black Friday campaign.
