Swatch Group sticks to outlook as H1 sales, profit advance

Swatch Group stuck to its forecast that sales would rise at a double-digit rate this year after reporting on Thursday increasing first-half profit and sales, helped by the success of its MoonSwatch watch.




After a strong recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, Swiss watchmakers have been grappling this year with extended lockdowns in the important Chinese market.

The maker of Omega watches, which did more than 40% of its sales in Greater China in 2021, cited in a statement "sales losses of approximately CHF 400 million due to closures of warehouses and many retail stores in April and May in China".

Sales at constant currency rose 7.4% to 3.61 billion Swiss francs ($3.68 billion) in the first six months of the year, said the world's biggest watchmaker, whose shares fell out of the Swiss blue-chip SMI index last year.

Net profit rose 18.5% to 320 million Swiss francs, short of a 324.5 million mean Refinitiv estimate, while the operating margin improved to 13.9% from 11.9% a year ago.

It said it had "excellent prospects in all segments with anticipated double-digit sales growth in local currencies for the entire year".

Peer Richemont reports sales for the quarter to June on Friday.
