Verkkokauppa.com Oyj COMPANY RELEASE September 14, 2017 at 8:00

Verkkokauppa.com Oyj lowers its comparable operating profit guidance for the financial year 2017. The reason for the updated outlook is the aggressive growth strategy of the company for 2017, which is estimated to result in lower than previously expected EBITDA level in the remaining period of the financial year due to aggressive pricing and marketing efforts in order to increase market share. This is reflected in lower than previously expected full-year comparable operating profit. Verkkokauppa.com Oyj's guidance regarding the development of its net sales in 2017 remains unchanged.

New guidance

In 2017, the company's revenue is expected to exceed the level of 2016. The comparable operating profit is expected to be below the level of 2016.

Previous guidance (published on 14 July 2017, half-year financial report)

In 2017, the company's revenue and comparable operating profit are expected to exceed the level of 2016.
