Stern Groep N.V., listed Dutch market leader in automotive retail and services, announces its results for 2017.
Key points in 2017
Henk van der Kwast, Chief Executive Officer:
“After two relatively good years, 2017 closed with a lower but once again clearly positive result. There were much higher expectations for 2017, given the economic developments in the Netherlands. Although the car market recovered to virtually the traditional replacement level in 2017, margins were subject to heavy pressure, especially for Dealergroup Stern. This was due among other things to the strong increase in private lease, which has increased the market strength of lease companies, and intense competition in the used-car market. These developments clearly show that our strategy of increasing our focus on financial mobility products and car services is the right choice.
Stern has now been on the road for 25 years. From a single Opel dealership in Amsterdam, we have grown into one of the largest automotive groups in the Netherlands. We are proud of this achievement. However, we have further ambitions. Improvement and renewal projects have been initiated to give a strong boost to our transformation from a large car dealer holding into a modern mobility group. The Fast Forward strategic plan also includes the digital transformation of the company as a priority. We expect the first results of this to become visible in the course of 2018.”
