Carlo Barban CEO WinmarktCarlo Barban, Winmarkt Group’ CEO and Managing Director, commented: „Strong business fundamentals deliver solid economic and financial performance. 2016 was another year of acceleration for Winmarkt, a remarkable operational performance, associated with careful control of costs & processes. These premises enabled us and our Shareholders to fulfil our strategy and to exceed our intended results.

The favourable local macroeconomic 2016 context (Gdp +4.8% yoy, consumption +8.9% yoy), boosted by taxes and minimum wages positive measures, as well as the 2017 outlook (GDP +3.9% yoy, consumption +5.9% yoy), allow us to sustain our strategy. In 2017 we intend to consolidate the current portfolio for future-proof capabilities, to deliver sustained profitable growth and returns and, of course, we are always keeping an eye out for opportunities.”


Winmarkt shopping centres‘ operating performances continued their growth during 2016. We managed this success by pushing on an attractive and modern offer, mixing balanced merchandise and, finally but not least, increasing the traffic by exceeding 31 million visitors, all over the network. These results come after Winmarkt’s essential investments along the years and constant improvement of the tenant mix. Today, all the shopping centers look drastically different, both inside and outside, compared to the IGD acquisition.

On one hand, the challenges of 2016 were to reinforce the tenants mix by increasing the percentage of international retailers with contracts concluded for periods of more than five years. On the other hand, we have focused on bringing in the city center a larger services offer, which our customers can easily access. One important achievement was the opening of MedLife clinic in Winmarkt shopping center located in Ploiesti.

2016 also brought the confirmation of the growth trend, visible in the last years, for all levels, whether we are talking about income, occupancy rate, or number of visitors. Most important for us, though, was strengthening relationships with our tenants which, on the base of the results recorded in Winmarkt shopping centers, have continued to expand in our network by opening new stores, such as H&M in Ploiesti or Pepco in Cluj and Piatra Neamt.” Marius Ionescu, Commercial Manager.
