Spain's DIA Posts Marginal Sales Increase In Q1
Spain's DIA Group has posted a 0.2% increase in gross sales to €2.27 billion in the first quarter of its financial year, excluding currency effects.
This was largely boosted by positive sales growth in its Emerging Markets division, which saw an ex-FX increase of 7.9%, following a 22.2% gain in Argentina.
In Europe, sales were down 4.8% in Spain and 1.2% in Portugal, however this was due to a major store renovation programme carried out by the group.
