Turnover rose to EUR204.3m, a 24% increase over the same period in 2003 (EUR 165.3m). The autonomous growth amounted to 10%. Net profit increased by 49%, to EUR 7.5m (1st half 2003: EUR 5m).

René Takens, Accell's chairman, said:

“In times such as these, when people are reticent about spending money and are more inclined towards saving, it is important to convince them that we offer the kind of product that exactly fits their needs. The people have money, but only if your brand has enough to offer. It has to be more than just a name – and that is exactly what our brands communicate in the market. This is not something that runs by itself – it demands the constant attention of all our people. And looking at these half year results, I have to say we have all succeeded.”
