Hawesko Group with record result

– Group sales up 12% to € 620 million in 2020

– Online boom and strong Christmas business boost operating result

Hamburg, February 4, 2020. Based on preliminary figures, the wine trading group Hawesko Holding AG (HAW, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) achived consolidated sales of € 620 million in the 2020 financial year. This corresponds to a 12% increase in sales compared with the previous year. Europe’s largest wine trading group expects consolidated EBIT to increase to around € 42 million, significantly exceeding the previous year’s figure of € 29.1 million.

The strong sales growth results in particular from increased demand in the B2C segments e-commerce and retail. The e-commerce segment grew by 29% year-on-year in 2020. The Retail segment achieved revenue growth of 12% in the same period. An exceptionally high level of demand during the Christmas season additionally improved the operating results of these segments.

Adjusted for the sale of the subsidiary VogelVins in June 2020, the B2B segment recorded a decline in sales of -5%. Declining sales to the food service and hotel industries were almost offset by increased demand in other sales channels.

“The entire Hawesko Group team has shown tremendous commitment in 2020, focusing on our customers and the business in these special times,” said Hawesko CEO Thorsten Hermelink. “We look forward to continuing to inspire our customers and the many new customers we have, and to expanding our market position as Europe’s leading wine trading group.”
