Fielmann, Germany’s largest optician, recently released its business results for the second quarter of 2012. Sales rose by 4%, driven by recent fashion trends, resulting in a turnover of EUR 280 million. During the same period, however, profits fell by EUR 1 million. This leaves the company in a bad financial position with current exchange rate risks.
Fielmann will still continue to achieve its 2012 targets though, and therefore seeks to build more stores and expand existing ones. They are expected to extend the following product ranges: sunglasses, progressive lenses, contact lenses and hearing aids.
