Danish Jewellery Giant Ups This Year's Forecast after Profit Outperforms Predictions

NEW YORK - May 13, 2016 - PRLog -- Pandora, the Danish jewellery retailer, increased its 12 month forecast and announced early year profit that outperformed expert's predictions as sales of its jewellery soared across Asia.

Sales should be higher than 19 billion DKK for 2016, increased from a previous forecast of 18.5 billion, the company announced in a press release 3rd May. Gross earnings prior to interest, taxes, depreciation and returns should be more than 38% of revenue, the company said. The prior forecast was 36.5%. Their stock jumped as much as 8.2%, the highest intraday increase in 12 months.

"Pandora profits from cheap prices in jewellery," Senior Vice President with Tokyo headquartered, Monex BMO Securities (http://monexfinancial.com) Anthony Russell said in an email to clients. "The decreased price of raw materials also may have contributed to profit gains." he added.

Pandora's gold and silver bracelets are now an iconic gift for ladies, with the organization being able to heighten demand through the frequent release of charms such as Disney characters and Baseball teams. While gross sales have nearly quadrupled in the past five years, the company's value in the marketplace has gained by 14 times, equating to about $15bn.

Revenue increase was 35% in the primary quarter, decreasing from the 41% Pandora posted last year. The jewellery sector is trailing behind forecasts as weaker financial growth and lagging stock markets weigh heavy on buyer confidence. Tiffany & Co., the U.S. luxury jewellery merchant, has predicted earnings this year that were lower than expert's predictions as the slowing world economy stymied sales.

Pandora's Ebitda in the first quarter was 1.75bn DDK, stoked by Asian sales that rose 57%. The mean of expert's estimates according to Bloomberg was 1.66 billion DDK.
