Deutsche Post DHL ; earnings guidance for 2012 fulfilled

  • Group generates operating earnings of EUR 2.67 billion

  • All divisions with double-digit earnings growth in Q4

  • Company proposes a dividend of EUR 0.70 per share

  • Further earnings growth expected in 2013

  • CEO Frank Appel: “We are delivering on our promises”

Deutsche Post DHL, the world's leading postal and logistics group, is looking back on a successful 2012. Group revenues increased 5.1 percent to EUR 55.5 billion during the 12-month period. This increase mainly reflects the exceptional market position that DHL maintains in the world’s growth regions – especially in Asia. The company, which operates in more than 220 countries and territories in the world, is now generating about 70 percent of its revenues outside Germany. At the same time, with its highly successful parcel business, the Group’s MAIL division continues to benefit from the rapid growth of online retailing. The excellent position that the Group and its divisions maintain in the most dynamic markets also led to a strong rise in the company’s profitability last year. At EUR 2.67 billion, operating earnings finished the year within the announced target corridor of EUR 2.6 billion to EUR 2.7 billion and were more than 9 percent above the previous year’s level. The Group’s consolidated net profit climbed by about EUR 500 million to EUR 1.66 billion in 2012.

With our strong performance in 2012, we have reached another milestone in our Strategy 2015,” said Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL. “In the past year, we made major progress on a journey that was, at times, far from easy. And we delivered on our promises – for the benefit of our customers, employees and shareholders.”
