Super de Boer supermarkets triple profit

The Super de Boer supermarket group booked net profit of €29m in 2008, almost three times the year-earlier figure.

But analysts in the Financieele Dagblad pointed out that the earnings were influenced by one-offs. Operating profit rose from €21m in 2007 to €25m.
The company had earlier announced that sales totalled €2.1bn, virtually unchanged from 2007. But average sales per outlet rose because the company divested stores over the year.
