COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
23 APRIL 2013
Favourable exchange rates at 31 March 2013 indicate a likely increase in net
profit of approximately 30 % compared to the prior year
SIX Swiss Exchange requires that issuers make an announcement without delay
where the foreseeable profit or loss for a given period is expected to deviate
significantly from the profit or loss achieved in the prior-year period. Both
significant falls and increases in the anticipated profit or loss require the
publication of an ad hoc notice to the market. In accordance with these
requirements Richemont makes the following announcement:
Trading for the year to March 2013 showed sales rising 14 % on a reported
basis and 9 % on a constant currency basis against the comparative period. On
this basis, Richemont's operating profit for the year to 31 March 2013 is
likely to show an increase of approximately 18 % compared to the previous
year. Net profit for the year is likely to increase by approximately 30%
compared to the previous year.
The foregoing financial information is unaudited.
The Group's results for the year to 31 March 2013 will be announced on 16 May
Richemont 'A' shares are listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange, Richemont's primary
listing, and are included in the Swiss Market Index ('SMI') of leading stocks.
