Swiss Post Solutions result

The digital transformation of business processes in the document solutions sector is a rapidly growing market. This has enabled Swiss Post Solutions to increase its operating profit steadily over the past five years and to continue expanding its strong international position. In the past year, the business unit generated operating profit of 25 million francs, up 5 million francs year-on-year. The positive trend in operating profit is the result of consistent implementation of efficiency improvements and optimization of the portfolio of solutions and investments. At 551 million francs, operating income was 7 million francs down on the previous year. This was essentially due to the sale of non-strategic activities and the negative exchange rate effect caused by the weak British pound. After adjustment for these effects, organic growth amounted to 5 percent.
