Report Name: The European Top 20 Retailers - Company Benchmarking Analysis
Issue Date: January 2010
Price: $4800
This report compares and analyzes the top 20 retail companies in Europe, taking into consideration the diverse financial and operational parameters. It also captures detailed business and strategic analysis at individual company level and provides rankings that explain where a particular company stands against its peers. Carrefour S.A. topped the European Retailers chart with revenue of US129.8 billion followed by Metro AG.

A striking gap exists among top five European players, as Raylle SA and Casino GuichardPerrachon, the fourth and fifth largest retailers respectively, generated only one third of the total revenues of that of Carrefour in FY08. In terms of operational efficiency, Tesco Plc was way ahead of Carrefour and Metro AG with a 5.9% margin. However companies with lower rankings; H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB and LVMH Moet Hennessy outnumbered all other larger peers with doubledigit operational margins in FY08.

It is interesting to note that specialist retailers like H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB (Clothing & accessories specialist) and LVMH Moet (Luxury goods specialist) realized better margin than general retailers like Carrefour, Metro AG or Tesco. The operational cash flow growth was best for BayWa in FY08. The outlet productivity of PPR and Wm Morrison was outstanding with 82.8% and 70.0% respectively. Metro AG and J Sainsbury also performed well under this parameter. The area productivity was best for Wm Morrison, followed by PPR and J Sainsbury.
