Business operations focused on expanding and defending the leading market positions of Denner, migrolino, Migrol, Digitec Galaxus, Depot, m-way and Sharoo. At the same time, the cross-channel business models of Le Shop, Probikeshop, OWiba (Office World and iba) and Ex Libris were consistently developed towards market and competence leadership in light of the growing importance of e-commerce. To increase the competitiveness of Globus and Interio on a sustained basis, specific measures to improve efficiency were successfully implemented.
Expansion and defence of the market position
Despite challenging market conditions, was able to defend its position as Switzerland's leading discounter with only a slight 0.4% fall in sales to CHF 2'902.1 million. Footfall was up again on the previous year, primarily due to converting an additional 180 stores. Furthermore, Denner systematically passed on savings in the area of purchasing to its customers in the form of lower prices.
Like all petrol station operators and mineral oil dealers, was affected by the sharp drop in oil prices, with sales falling by CHF 262.8 million (-16.2%) in nominal terms. In real terms, however, sales rose by 2.7%, which meant that Migrol was able to increase its market share.
Despite a challenging non-food market environment,, reported a double-digit increase in sales to CHF 696 million (after complete integration in Migros Group CHF 498.9 million), thereby consolidating its position as the clear online market leader.
continued its successful growth trajectory, generating sales of CHF 456.5 million with a total of 450 locations and 19 new wholesale partner branches. In the local currency, Depot's sales increased by 12% to EUR 428.9 million.
In 2015, strengthened its position as the market leader and a centre of excellence for electromobility, with sales up by 53%. The number of branches was increased to 29, concluding the expansion of the branch network. 80% of the Swiss population can now reach an m-way shop within 30 minutes.
was able to build on its position as the first ever peer-to-peer vehicle-sharing platform in Switzerland by acquiring Amag as a further strategic partner and co-investor. Sharoo's innovative and pioneering approach was also recognised in the form of the Frost & Sullivan Price/Performance Leadership Award for Europe's best car-sharing concept.
Sustainable increase in competitiveness
Despite successfully completing the integration of Schild and increasing its market share, sales were down by 3.3% to CHF 928.7 million, due to the very challenging market environment. As a result, it became necessary to introduce restructuring measures, which were completed in the second half of 2015.
continues to struggle in a declining and deflationary market with major structural changes and, despite a clear increase in market share, reported a 5.4% decline in sales to CHF 121.0 million. It was, however, able to strengthen its leading position in online and cross-channel retailing. In 2015, pure online sales already accounted for more than 50% of total sales.
At CHF 179.6 million, sales at OWiba were 0.3% above the previous year's total.
The online supermarket reported encouraging sales growth of 6.6% to CHF 175.9 million.
Investment in sustainable development
To improve competitiveness and strengthen the company’s market position on a sustained basis, investments of around CHF 196.2 million were made in the reporting year, the majority of which (CHF 174.5 million) in the Swiss market. Fulfilment of the basic social and ecological requirements is consistently encouraged and monitored by the companies of the Commerce Department.
