Philips Lighting announced the company’s 2017 second quarter results. “I am pleased that our LED, Professional and Home businesses posted solid operating margin increases, while Lamps maintained its high level of profitability,” said CEO Eric Rondolat.  “In the first half of the year, our growth profile improved and our profitability continued to increase.  This demonstrates the successful implementation of our strategy and reinforces our confidence that we are on track to achieve our outlook for 2017.”




We are on track to further improve our Adjusted EBITA margin by 50-100 basis points for the full year, excluding a EUR 15 million real estate gain in the second quarter, and to deliver solid free cash flow.  While we are cautious given global economic uncertainty, we are confident that we will return to positive comparable sales growth in the course of this year.
