In the third quarter, the Group’s sales revenue reached 115.5 million euros, exceeding the sales revenue of a year earlier by 4.7%.

The Group's net profit earned in the 3rd quarter was 7.1 million euros, having decreased by 7.3% compared to the corresponding result of 2011, which was 7.7 million euros. The pre-tax profit of the first 9 months was 16.4 million euros, having grown by 3.5% in a year. The net profit of the first 9 months was influenced by the write-off of commercial software that had lost its usefulness – in the sum of 0.9 million euros, which was recorded in the depreciation of fixed assets.
For this year, the Tallinna Kaubamaja Group has planned and partially already executed the modification and expansion of its sales spaces. In March, the Department store opened an extensively renovated women's department and children's department in Tallinn, whilst Saku Selver was opened and a renewed partner loyalty program Partner card was launched in May. An ABC footwear store was reopened in Pärnu in July, a new I.L.U. beauty store was opened in Tartu in August, and in September, Selver opened a new gourmet store in downtown Tallinn. There are plans to open several Selver and footwear stores at the end of the year. The division of the department stores, the central kitchen and the security functions into new subsidiaries to make the management structure of the Group more transparent and competitive was the most significant internal reorganisation for the Group undertaken in the 3rd quarter. The divisions were approved at the extraordinary general meeting of shareholders held on August 21, 2012, and were completed on 1 October 2012. The development activities resulted in the increase of investments and one-time operational expenditure, which in turn influenced the results of the Group in the 3rd quarter. The renewed loyalty programme, warmly welcomed by our customers, gives them additional bonus points for their Partner card purchases in the amount of 1% of the purchase sum. During the period when the customers collect such bonus points, the turnover and margin of the Group decrease to the same extent. The expected positive impact on the economic results of the Group becomes apparent once the bonus points are put to use. The growing popularity of the Partner card allows the realization of the program’s positive impact in the form of increased sales revenue, and the best time for that is probably the end of the year.

The profit earned in Selvers in Estonia was positively influenced by cost-effective activities. In addition, the income tax paid on dividends was 7.6% lower than the year before. Compared to last year, the shaping of the profit of the first 9 months of this year was influenced by greater depreciation costs and operational expenditure caused by renovation works undertaken in four stores during the previous year, the introduction of the SelveEkspress purchasing system (which is new in Estonia) in four stores during the previous and current year, the creation of the Selveri Pagarid bakery concept completed in the 1st quarter of this year, and the opening of the Saku Selver and Selver gourmet stores. As a result of the above, 2011 and 2012 have seen a larger volume of investments and operational expenditure than the previous years. In June of this year the decision was made to replace commercial software – as a result, software investments in the sum of 0.9 million euros were written off.

The sales revenue in the 3rd quarter was influenced by renovation works in the Tartu department store – in August, a new Women’s footwear department was opened instead of the former Sports department, and the Beauty and Women’s department was expanded in September. The sales revenue of the first 9 months was affected by the extensive renovation works in the Women's and Children's World of Tallinna Kaubamaja, which lasted from mid-January to March.

The segment earned a profit 1.5 million euros in nine months, of that, 0.6 million was generated in the 3rd quarter. The respective profits of 2011 were 1.0 million euros and 0.4 million euros. The turnover growth is rooted in the successful sales of new KIA models such as the Cee’d, Rio and Optima, and the continuing great demand for the crossover SUV KIA Sportage. The sales of KIA in the Baltics have been remarkable, increasing in a year by more than 120% in Estonia, 90% in Latvia and 53% in Lithuania, thus effortlessly winning the first place among other brands. In the first 9 months of 2012, a total of 1,386 vehicles were sold in the vehicle segment, i.e. 628 vehicles more than the year before during the same period. In the 4th quarter, the sales volume should once again increase thanks to the arrival of the new Sorento. In addition, the vehicle segment of Tallinna Kaubamaja was supplemented by obtaining the sales of the Opel and Cadillac models sold by Viking Motors AS in the beginning of July this year. 34 Opel and Cadillac models were sold in the 3rd quarter. The volume of the sales of spare parts and services provided by Viking Motors AS in the Tallinn and Harju County market is also important. In addition, the purchase of Viking Motors AS gave us an opportunity to offer car body repair work for KIA clients, for whom the services had previously been outsourced. In addition, the sales of used KIA passenger cars increased thanks to the modern sales area for used cars located at Tammsaare tee 51. The sales revenue of Viking Motors in the 3rd quarter of this year was 1.2 million euros.

The decrease in sales revenue in the 3rd quarter was caused by a drop in the number of stores – compared to the 3rd quarter of 2011, business activities in Latvia had been terminated by the 3rd quarter of this year and the 3 stores operating in Latvia had been closed. The increase in the turnover of comparable stores was 10% per 9 months and 3% in the 3rd quarter.
