CEO Statement
We have sustained our good growth momentum on own brands in Q3 and YTD growth
stands at 9.2%. Autonomous revenue growth for total Wessanen remains at the
upper end of our guidance range of 5-7% year to date, despite an accelerated
decline of private label business in Q3. YTD EBITE has increased by 22.4% and
margin is up 90bps to 8.3%. In the quarter we achieved an EBITE margin of
7.3% despite investing significantly more A&P into our brands. Integration
plans of Piramide, Inebio and Mrs Crimbles are being executed as planned.

We are on track to deliver a good 2016 result both in terms of growth and
profit as we are further strengthening our brands in a growing market for
healthier and more sustainable food.
