Grafico Azioni Schneider Electric (EU:SU)
1 Anno : Da Nov 2017 a Nov 2018
By Nathan Allen
Schneider Electric SE (SU.FR) said Thursday that it posted a record net profit in 2017, driven by accelerating sales and increases in productivity as well as efficiency.
Net profit at the French supplier of electrical equipment rose 23% to 2.15 billion euros ($2.66 billion) last year from EUR1.75 billion in 2016, the company said.
A consensus compiled by FactSet had pegged net income at EUR2.12 billion
Revenue was EUR24.74 billion, compared with a restated figure of EUR24.46 billion a year earlier, and narrowly missing a FactSet-compiled consensus of EUR24.78 billion.
Fourth-quarter revenue fell slightly to EUR6.67 billion, due in part to a EUR341-million foreign-exchange hit, which offset the positive impact of acquisitions, Schneider said.
The company declared a dividend of EUR2.20, up 8% on year.
