Kesko Oyj: Kesko's sales increased in October

KESKO CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 14.11.2016 AT 09.00 1(2)

Kesko's sales increased in October

Kesko Group's sales in October 2016 totalled €944.9 million and were up 26.2%.
In comparable terms, sales in local currencies decreased by 2.4%, excluding
the impact of Suomen Lähikauppa and Onninen.

"Kesko's sales increased in October due to acquisitions. Sales performance in
the Finnish grocery trade and the Finnish building and technical trade was
weakened by the fact that there was one less delivery day compared to the
previous year," says Kesko's President and CEO Mikko Helander.

The sales of the grocery trade in October were €449.2 million and increased by
11.1%. Suomen Lähikauppa excluded, the sales of the grocery trade were €385.2
million, representing a comparable change of -4.8%. The sales performance was
affected by the number of delivery days, as well as All Saints' Day falling
in November unlike the year before.

The sales of the building and technical trade in October were €420.4 million,
up 51.1%. Excluding Onninen, the sales of the building and technical trade
were €269.8 million, down 3.0% in local currencies. In Finland, sales
excluding Onninen were down by 4.9%. Outside Finland, sales excluding Onninen
decreased by 0.9% in local currencies. The sales of the building and home
improvement trade increased by 0.3% in local currencies. The sales of the
leisure trade decreased by 2.2% in Finland and the sales of the agricultural
and machinery trade were down by 13.1%.

The sales of the car trade in October were €75.3 million, up 16.2% from the
previous year.
