DÜSSELDORF (dpa-AFX) - The electronics retailer Ceconomy has specified its profit forecast thanks to good business in Western and Southern Europe. The SDax-listed company announced in Düsseldorf on Monday that it expects profit adjusted for special effects to increase to between 290 and 310 million euros in the 2023/24 financial year (as of the end of September). Previously, Ceconomy had only forecast a significant improvement compared to the previous year. In 2022/23, the operating result had risen by around 17 percent to 243 million euros. Ceconomy's new forecast is above the average expectation of analysts. According to the company, they had forecast adjusted earnings before interest and taxes of 273 million euros. Adjusted for currency and portfolio effects, the company continues to expect a slight increase in sales across all segments./zb/jha/
