Turnover increase for RFS Holland Holding

Turnover increase for RFS Holland Holding

RFS Holland Holding (owner of, amongst others, Wehkamp) has managed a 7 % turnover increase in the first half of its fiscal year. Fonq registered the largest growth of all of the group's properties.

Create2Fit dropped 16 %

Fonq managed to increase its turnover 25 % compared to the year before. Wehkamp also managed to grow (+ 9 %), but Create2Fit bucked the trend: its turnover dropped 16 % following the closure of several web shops. Nevertheless, Create2Fit should manage a higher profitability in the upcoming years.

 

RFS Holland Holding's total turnover reached 353 million euro, 7 % more than in the same period last year. Its total operating profit grew 21 %: CEO Gert van de Weerdhof believes its growth-focused investments are finally paying off.
