Roca Group 2011 Results
BARCELONA, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Roca Group has met its growth and profitability targets thanks to significant management efforts in emerging economy markets. Â This has been the only way to offset the slump in the Iberian market (Spain and Portugal) and the sluggishness of Central European countries, both of which have historically been high-volume and high-margin regions for the Group.
Most significant data: increase in sales and profit
Growth by markets: Brazil, the Group's new top market
Efforts to expand and diversify the offer
"Although our international expansion policy is still in force, in 2011 we have slowed down our efforts to focus more on consolidating our worldwide capabilities, with the aim of establishing a true global operator structure. Fortunately, our presence in key emerging economies is strong and we have the largest commercial offering in the industry. By properly managing our position as market leaders, we should be able to maintain our current growth path," says RamÃ³n Asensio, CEO of the Group.
