PANDORA

Outlook 2017

In 2017, PANDORA will continue to drive growth in existing stores, and expand the store network in newer as well as in more developed markets. Revenue is expected to be in the range of DKK 23-24 billion. Assuming current exchange rates (9 May 2017), PANDORA expects the net effect from currencies on Group revenue to be insignficant compared with 2016.

The EBITDA margin in 2017 is expected to be around 38%. For 2017, the EBITDA margin is anticipated to be negatively impacted by around 0-1 percentage points from higher commodity prices. Furthermore, assuming current exchange rates, PANDORA expects a full year headwind effect from currencies on the EBITDA margin of around 1 percentage point compared with 2016. The EBITDA margin is expected to be significantly lower in the first half of 2017 compared to the second half.

CAPEX for the year is expected to be around 5% of revenue. The expected level of investments includes expansion of the crafting facilities in Thailand, investments in PANDORA’s distribution network, as well as IT investments.
