The programme includes a review of the group’s strategic priorities and targets as well as a review of the operations of Apotek Hjärtat, ICA Real Estate and ICA Sweden, with a more in-depth look at online operations.
ICA Gruppen’s management will today meet financial analysts, bank representatives and the media in order to present the company’s strategies, view of the market and investment projects. One important area that will be looked at is the forthcoming sale of ICA’s properties in Norway. ICA Real Estate will present a valuation of the total property stock held by wholly owned and partly owned companies, which amounts to SEK 17.8 billion; of this, the properties in Norway are valued at SEK 2.5 billion.
Another area that will be dealt with is ICA’s online operations. Here ICA can report that 10% of the total growth in retail this year is expected to come from online trading. ICA now has more than 150 stores that offer online shopping, and around 150 more that have registered their interest. ICA’s surveys of customers who have used the service show that 96% of respondents say they would use it to shop again, and a survey carried out among card customers shows that those who have started shopping online spend 22% more at ICA and become more loyal to ICA.
