Fielmann improved its pre-tax profit by 21 percent to a provisional figure of EUR 105 million, with the operating income for the year up 23 percent to around EUR 71 million. The number of unit sales of glasses rose to 5.8 million (previous year: 5.7 million). External sales including VAT increased to EUR 913 million (previous year: EUR 843 million), with consolidated sales rising to EUR 793 million (previous year: EUR 733 million).

In the light of this pleasing business development, the Supervisory and Management Boards proposed a resolution at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on 12th July 2007 to pay a dividend of EUR 1.20 per share (+26 percent).

Fielmann is continuing to pursue its policy of rapid expansion and today has 571 branches (previous year: 538), 500 of which are in Germany.  In Switzerland, Fielmann is the market leader with 27 branches (previous year 25). In Austria, Fielmann opened four new branches in 2006 and thus runs 24 shops, increased the number of units sold and the sales volume by 20 percent and the result by 50 percent.

Fielmann is the largest employer and offers more training places than anyone else in the optical industry. At the year-end, the company employed 11,160 members of staff (of whom 1,715 were trainees) and in the year under review, 690 new jobs were created.

For 2007, Fielmann is planning to increase the number of units sold, the sales volume and the profits. The first weeks of the current year confirm the positive expectations. For the year as a whole, Fielmann has a further 35 new branches in the pipeline, of which two are planned to open in Luxembourg. The company will also be creating more than 400 new jobs.
