Our ambition is to be the world’s leading local home improvement retailer.
By leveraging our international buying scale and geographic reach we can offer our customers the best products, services and stores in their local market. Increasingly we are harnessing our international group strengths to create competitive advantage in local markets, drive higher cash returns and deliver more value for our shareholders. Along the way we are minimising our environmental impact whilst also helping our customers do the same. Our aim has been and remains to deliver more value for Kingfisher shareholders by focusing on three key priorities – Management, Capital and Returns.
Progress update from the Group Chief Executive
“In the first full year for the new Group Executive team I am pleased to report a strong improvement in performance. We made good progress with our seven-point ‘Delivering Value’ plan to improve returns to shareholders, which we cover in more detail elsewhere. Profitability, cash generation and return on capital all grew in the UK & Ireland, France, Poland, Turkey and Spain. Encouragingly, losses were significantly reduced in China as our turnaround plan progresses.”
Kingfisher is Europe’s leading home improvement retailer and the third largest in the world. With over 830 stores in eight countries in Europe and Asia, we serve 6 million customers a week ranging from the everyday DIYer to trade professionals.
As modern consumers become ever more demanding they want newness, style and faster ways to shop. We have a good track record of innovation and the pace is increasing, particularly in our larger businesses which trade in more developed markets. We share our ideas and knowledge bringing benefit across the business.
Kingfisher today is Europe’s leading home improvement retailer and third largest in the world. Since the 1980s Kingfisher has been transformed from a UK based multi-retail sector conglomerate into an international retailer concentrated on the highly attractive home improvement sector. In 2008 a new management team and structure was introduced to better leverage our key international strengths including sourcing and innovation.
