Van de Velde, the producer of luxury lingerie, has observed a continuing slowdown in EBIDTA that amounted to EUR 48.7 million compared with EUR 48.8 million in 2012. There was, however, an upswing in earnings in the second half of 2013, where both EBIDTA and turnover losses of the first half of the year have been recovered, following a two-year set-back in growth for the company. “Thank to a stronger second half, all efforts of the company and its staff resulted for full year 2013 in a minimal turnover growth, though without EBIDTA growth,” commented Lucas Laureys, Chairman of the Board of Directors. Despite a slowdown in growth since the second half of 2011, the company plans to continue to follow the original strategic line in order to generate profits by bringing the lingerie to market via the most appropriate distribution channels.
