Naturhouse opens 156 centres in 2016, reaching a total of 2,279 stores and exceeding the 2015-16 guidance by 85 centres
Madrid, 18 January 2016.- Naturhouse, a company specialising in the sale of diet products and dietary re-education, stepped up its growth process in 2016 with the opening of 156 centres, to reach a grand total of 2,279 centres in 32 countries. The intensive commercial endeavours shown by the company from the very beginning, along with the interest sparked by the brand and the appeal of its franchises, have made this new record possible.
The 156 centres opened in 2016 mean the company has exceeded the 240 net openings set in its guidance for 2015-16 by 85 centres.
This positive development is down to the favourable evolution of the group’s main markets of France, Italy and Poland, with 58, 24 and 61 centres opened, respectively, and to the other countries that continue to contribute to the Group.
Naturhouse’s international growth has also been positive, reaching a total of 32 different markets with the addition of India, Hungary and Malta, providing further proof that Naturhouse’s business model works in any country, regardless of culture, religion or customs.
According to chairman Félix Revuelta, “Exceeding the 2015-16 guidance by so many centres and continuously opening up new countries, while strengthening our main markets, shows once again the potential of the Naturhouse brand. As such, in 2017, we will continue to develop our sales departments in order to provide a fresh boost to our presence worldwide, with a special interest in developing our markets in the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States.”
The first nine months of 2016 saw Naturhouse increase its turnover by 3.4% to €76.6 million and its net profit by 1% to €18.85 million. It has also paid out €17 million in dividends, making it one of the leading companies on the Spanish stock exchange in terms of per-dividend yield. These figures once again highlight the group’s capacity for growth, the strength of its balance sheet and its attractive shareholder remuneration.
